February book selection is When the Stars Go Dark by Paula McLain.
 
"Anna Hart is a seasoned missing persons detective in San Francisco with far too much knowledge of the darkest side of human nature. When unspeakable tragedy strikes her personal life, Anna, desperate and numb, flees to the Northern California village of Mendocino. She spent summers there as a child with her beloved grandparents, and now she believes it might be the only place left for her to heal. Yet the day she arrives, she learns a local teenage girl has gone missing. Anna is in no condition to become involved with the search - until a childhood friend, now the village sheriff, pleads for her help. Then, just days later, a twelve-year-old girl is abducted from her home. The crimes feel frighteningly reminiscent of the most crucial time in Anna's childhood, when a string of unsolved murders touched Mendocino. As past and present collide, Anna realizes that she has been led to this moment... As Anna becomes obsessed with these missing girls, she must learn that true courage means getting out of her own way and learning to let others in." --Provided by publisher.
 
Copies of this month's book selection are available at Storrs Library, as well as online in our OverDrive catalog.
 
Advance Registration is required.

Every year, between one quarter and one third of the land area is under water, yet the rivers sustain agriculture and are highways for commerce.  David’s journey takes him from Old Dhaka, with its narrow alleys, bustling riverside markets and decaying colonial-era buildings to Rajshahi on the Padma (Ganges) on the border with West Bengal, to the river ports of Khulna and Barisal in the delta region, and to the tea plantations of the northeast.
 
David Mould, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Media Arts and Studies at Ohio University, has traveled widely in Asia and southern Africa.

Non-Fiction Book ClubAll are welcome to join the Storrs Library Non-Fiction Book Club as we read, learn, and discuss an array of nonfiction titles on varying subjects. Selections, genres and topics will range in scope and detail and suggestions for future titles are encouraged. Our sixth selection is The Color of Law : A Forgotten History of how our Government Segregated America written by Richard Rothstein. Staff will be present to facilitate an open discussion during the meeting and you are encouraged to write down and bring your questions and thoughts.
Summary : "Richard Rothstein explodes the myth that America's cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation--that is, through individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies. Rather, The Color of Law incontrovertibly makes it clear that it was de jure segregation--the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments--that actually promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day."
 
Register in Advance. Slots are Limited. 
Copies of this month's book selection are available at Storrs Library as well as online in our Overdrive catalog.

Accidental Travel Writer: Postcards from Indonesia
Flyer for Accidental Travel Writer: Postcards from IndonesiaIt’s the world’s largest archipelagic state has the fourth largest population in the world. Strung along the so-called Ring of Fire, Indonesia experiences more than its fair share of natural disasters.
 
David Mould’s journey begins in the province of Aceh in Sumatra, ground zero for the 2004 tsunami. Amid the urban sprawl and traffic jams of the capital, Jakarta, he finds refuge in the old colonial port of Batavia, once the capital of the Dutch East Indies with its thriving spice trade. In Bali, he avoids Australian surfers on his way to the back country and Hindu temples. Along the way he explores Indonesia’s history of colonialism and regional conflict, its politics, media and environmental challenges.  David Mould, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Media Arts and Studies at Ohio University, has traveled widely in Asia and southern Africa.
 
Register in advance: you will receive an email invitation to join shortly before we begin.
