If you like to knit, sew, crochet, embroider while talking, feel free to bring along your handiwork. Register by contacting the library at 732-4274.

Join us for a discussion of the Library Reads recommended book "Moonglow: A Novel" by Michael Chabon. From the publisher: "A grandson sits by his dying grandfather’s bedside as his grandfather slowly reveals the light and shadows of a marriage and of a family that kept secrets as a way of life. He learns of his grandmother’s life growing up during World War II; her coming to America and living with a man who kept to himself, even lying to her about his short time in prison. Chabon’s signature style includes carefully observed characters that are both new and familiar and shimmering prose that reflects and refracts light much as moonlight does.” Please either have read the book or listened to the audiobook. Register by contacting the library at 732-4274.
