Mystery Book Group discusses The Dying Detective by Leif GW Perrson

LARS MARTIN JOHANSSON is a living legend. Cunning and perceptive, always one step ahead, he was known in the National Criminal Police as "the man who could see around corners." But now Johansson is retired, living in the country, his police days behind him.

Or so he thinks.

After suffering a stroke, Johansson finds himself in the hospital. Tests show heart problems as well. And the only thing that can save him from despair is his doctor's mention of an unsolved murder case from years before. The victim: an innocent nine-year-old girl.

Johansson is determined to solve the case, no matter his condition. With the help of his assistant, Matilda, an amateur detective, and Max, an orphan with a personal stake in the case, he launches an informal investigation from his hospital bed. Racing against time, he uncovers a web of connections that links sex tourism to a dead opera singer and a self-made millionaire. And as Johansson draws closer to solving the crime, he finds that he will have to confront not just a mystery but his own mortality as well.

Big Read--21 Day Wellness Challenge

Hope's journey in "Lab Girl" explores how plants nurture themselves, but often describes a work schedule that leaves her unable to spend time nourishing herself. Hope describes a situation where finding work-life balance is complicated, which is a problem with which many readers identify. In this series of four meetings, we'll explore and discuss methods of self-directed wellness. Each session will start with an assessment of where we're at with self-care.  The library will provide journals where you can explore the challenges. Each week we will come together to discuss our findings and relate them back to “Lab Girl.” Pick up a free journal at any library branch and join us on Thursdays at noon in October.

CONTACT: Suzanne Schwichtenberg  447-6681  sschwich@lclibrary.org
There are 19 spaces available.

Premier Book Group discusses Becoming by Michelle Obama

An intimate, powerful, and inspiring memoir by the former First Lady of the United States In a life filled with meaning and accomplishment, Michelle Obama has emerged as one of the most iconic and compelling women of our era. As First Lady of the United States of America - the first African-American to serve in that role - she helped create the most welcoming and inclusive White House in history, while also establishing herself as a powerful advocate for women and girls in the U.S. and around the world, dramatically changing the ways that families pursue healthier and more active lives, and standing with her husband as he led America through some of its most harrowing moments. Along the way, she showed us a few dance moves, crushed Carpool Karaoke, and raised two down-to-earth daughters under an unforgiving media glare. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her - from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world's most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it - in her own words and on her own terms. Warm, wise, and revelatory, Becoming is the deeply personal reckoning of a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations - and whose story inspires us to do the same.

Nature Journaling in the Fall and Winter

LOCATION: LARGE MEETING ROOM.

“Nature Journaling” is the practice of drawing or writing in response to observations of nature. In the book “Lab Girl,” author Hope Jahren talks about becoming a scientist, and how vital it is to observe of and record her findings. She also talks about becoming her own person and finding her way home. While we may not all be able to learn in a lab, most of us can go outside and learn about our own environment, and in turn, ourselves.

We’ll start class indoors at the Library and discuss how to do nature journaling in the crisper months in Montana. Then, weather depending, we’ll go outside and explore the possibilities with our journals and art supplies. The Library will supply the snacks & journaling materials, you supply the observations and fun! All ages and artistic abilities welcome! Go to www.lclibrary.org or call 406-447-1690 to register.

Author Jim Robbins & People Who Plant Trees

Author Jim Robbins & the People Who Plant Trees

Monday, October 7 at 7 PM, Large Meeting Room, Lewis & Clark Library

“When is the best time to plant a tree? Twenty years ago. The second best time? Today.”—Chinese proverb.

Share in Jim Robbins’ reflections of his time with David Milarch, as well as the new voice of Hope Jahren, and how both have a passion for the simple yet incredibly complex world of trees and the hope they inspire.

When New York Times journalist Jim Robbins came upon Milarch’s story, he was fascinated but had his doubts. Yet over several years, listening to Milarch and talking to scientists, he came to realize that there is so much we do not yet know about trees: how they die, how they communicate, the myriad crucial ways they filter water and air and otherwise support life on Earth. Each day, it seems, we are learning something new about these creatures with whom we share the world.

“What an irony it is that these living beings whose shade we sit in, whose fruit we eat, whose limbs we climb, whose roots we water, to whom most of us rarely give a second thought, are so poorly understood," Robbins writes "We need to come, as soon as possible, to a profound understanding and appreciation for trees and forests and the vital role they play, for they are among our best allies in the uncertain future that is unfolding.”

It's increasingly clear that as the planet changes, trees and forest are essential to assuring its survival.

Tree scientist Hope Jahren shares some of that fascinating tree knowledge in her compulsively readable and compelling memoir, “Lab Girl.” Her last pages have a simple ask: Plant a tree. She extends the mantle of scientist to each of us, inviting us to join her in both observing and protecting our environment.

Big Read--21 Day Wellness Challenge

Hope's journey in "Lab Girl" explores how plants nurture themselves, but often describes a work schedule that leaves her unable to spend time nourishing herself. Hope describes a situation where finding work-life balance is complicated, which is a problem with which many readers identify. In this series of four meetings, we'll explore and discuss methods of self-directed wellness. Each session will start with an assessment of where we're at with self-care.  The library will provide journals where you can explore the challenges. Each week we will come together to discuss our findings and relate them back to “Lab Girl.” Pick up a free journal at any library branch and join us on Thursdays at noon in October.

Movie Screening

Cover image for Dirt! [videorecording (DVD)] : the movie

The expression "common as dirt" wouldn't exist if there weren't an awful lot of dirt in this world. But is there as much as we think -- or even as much as we need? And what's been happening to it? Dirt is the outer layer of the Earth and the place where nearly all the world's vegetation comes to life, but the 20th Century was a bad time for dirt -- the rise of corporate farming practices have led to reliance of fertilizers with negative long-term effects on the soil, while clear-cutting of rainforests and global warming are making it harder to grow the food the world needs, making workable soil an increasingly scarce commodity. Filmmakers Bill Benenson and Gene Rosow offer a witty but incisive look at dirt, what's in it, how it's used and how we must protect it in the documentary Dirt! The Movie. Adapted in part from the book Dirt! The Ecstatic Skin of Earth by William Bryant Logan, Dirt! The Movie received its world premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
