Those that attended the Author Dinner with Chris Grabenstein last Thursday had a great time! If you missed the event, we are sorry but suggest you put this event on your calendar for next October. The meal is always delicious and listening to an author talk about the writing process and their inspiration for their stories is always interesting and entertaining even if the writing style is not what you regularly read. Chris Grabenstein writes mystery stories for adults that are set on the Jersey Shore and are told with his wry sense of humor. He also writes a popular series for young adults. He has an impressive resume of places that he worked and things that he did before he decided to try writing full-time proving that you are never too late to try new experiences and take a different path.
The library supporters that attend this event, the trustees, the Foundation and the Friends as well as patrons and staff, are all bibliophiles and are always good company and great conversationalists. It is a fun opportunity to meet your neighbors and learn something new about what is going on at the library or in the literary world in some small way! We hope to see you all next October.
Coming later this month: the daytime book club meets on the second Wednesday of each month and is part of the Wednesday Wisdom series that promises something of interest to adults every Wednesday at 1:30 at the library. The reading group will be discussing Zeitoun by Dave Eggers on October 12 and on November 9 they will discuss Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. The International Film that is being shown this month, on the evening of October 12 at 6:30 p.m. and again on Sunday, October 16 at 2:00 p.m., is Separate Lies starring Tom Wilkenson. The movie is from 2005 and is shown in English. Our Yoga classes continue with some time off for the upcoming Friends Book Sale which will be on October 22nd and 23rd. The third Wednesday Documentary Film Series will continue Nature's Most Amazing Events narrated by David Attenborough. This month's segment is "The Great Migration" about "the annual rains in the Serengeti which draws in the greatest concentration of large animals on the Earth." We have a SCORE business seminar on October 18 titled "The Art of Closing the Sale" and we have programs for the children, tweens and teens all month long to keep the whole family busy!
