Tuesday Book Discussion

In this covid-haunted third winter of ours, it is a joyous oasis of beauty and inspiration. Egan recounts his walk along the Via Francigina through peaceful countrysides and into magnificent cathedrals. These wonders of an earlier architecture stand as stone tributes to a faith once as central to town life as their size implies. Egan is on a mission of hope as he gives us a travelogue both internal and external. We suggest you keep your iphone next to you as you read and look up the cathedrals as he approaches them.

Extra copies are available for checkout at the circulation desk.

The discussion will be held on Zoom - please contact the library if you would like to join the group. Newcomers always welcome!

Herbert Hoover in a New Light

Join us for this fascinating presentation by Phil Devlin!

When liberal Democratic Senator Robert F. Kennedy appeared on the Dick Cavett show in the spring of 1968, Cavett asked him to name the man he most admired in American history. After pausing a few seconds, RFK looked up and said "Herbert Hoover", to Cavett's astonishment. Long demonized for being responsible for the Great Depression, Herbert Hoover is revered in Europe for his unmatched humanitarian efforts to save millions of lives. Many interesting anecdotes and facts about this great man will surely make viewers see him in a new light.

This program will be held via Zoom. Use the link to register below - registrants will receive an email the day of the program, to access the presentation online.

Join us as we discuss A Better Man by Louise Penny.

It’s Gamache’s first day back as head of the homicide department, a job he temporarily shares with his previous second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir. Flood waters are rising across the province. In the middle of the turmoil a father approaches Gamache, pleading for help in finding his daughterAs crisis piles upon crisis, Gamache tries to hold off the encroaching chaos, and realizes the search for Vivienne Godin should be abandoned. But with a daughter of his own, he finds himself developing a profound, and perhaps unwise, empathy for her distraught father.  Increasingly hounded by the question, how would you feel..., he resumes the search.  As the rivers rise, and the social media onslaught against Gamache becomes crueler, a body is discovered. And in the tumult, mistakes are made. In the next title in this "constantly surprising series that deepens and darkens as it evolves" (New York Times Book Review), Gamache must face a horrific possibility, and a burning question. What would you do if your child’s killer walked free?

Extra copies will be available at the circulation desk.

Meeting location to be determined. Newcomers always welcome!

FBI Special Agent Kimberly Quincy and Sergeant Detective D. D. Warren have built a task force to follow the digital bread crumbs left behind by deceased serial kidnapper Jacob Ness. When a disturbing piece of evidence is discovered in the hills of Georgia, they bring Flora Dane and true-crime savant Keith Edgar to a small town where something seems to be deeply wrong. What at first looks like a Gothic eeriness soon hardens into something much more sinister...and they discover that for all the evil Jacob committed while alive, his worst secret is still to be revealed. Quincy and D. D. must summon their considerable skills and experience to crack the most disturbing case of their careers - and Flora must face her own past directly in the hope of saving others.
