Happy Spring everyone! You can use the extended daylight hours as an opportunity to visit the library. Take a look at the wonderful adult programs planned for this month.
The Book To Movie Club will watch the movie Daisy Miller starring Cybill Shepherd. Based on the Henry James classic novella, Daisy Miller is a 1974 movie set in the 1870s about an American woman traveling in Europe with her clueless mother and badly behaved brother. Daisy’s erratic, flirtatious behavior confuses and irritates many of the people she meets causing her to be left out of American European society.
Our next Book To Movie is The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri. The Namesake deftly describes the struggles and hardships of a Bengali couple who immigrate to the United States to form a life outside of everything they are accustomed to while their American-born children fight an internal battle to discover who they are. We will watch the film starring Kal Penn in June.
Our fourth and last installment of Pushing the Limits, a book club meets science café type program will happen at the end of April. We will be reading John Browne’s book, The Seven Elements that Changed the World: An Adventure of Ingenuity and Discovery, and discussing the scientific connections within the book and within our everyday lives. Dinner will be provided. This program was made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
