misc_none 1:00 PM BOOKWORMS Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Adults

 

 Join the Bookworms to discuss The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fray a novel by Rachel Joyce.

Meet Harold Fry, recently retired. He lives in a small English village with his wife, Maureen, who seems irritated by almost everything he does. Little differentiates one day from the next. Then one morning a letter arrives, addressed to Harold in a shaky scrawl, from a woman he hasn’t heard from in twenty years. Queenie Hennessy is in hospice and is writing to say goodbye. But before Harold mails off a quick reply, a chance encounter convinces him that he absolutely must deliver his message to Queenie in person. In his yachting shoes and light coat, Harold Fry embarks on an urgent quest. Determined to walk six hundred miles to the hospice, Harold believes that as long as he walks, Queenie will live. A novel of charm, humor, and profound insight into the thoughts and feelings we all bury deep within our hearts, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry introduces Rachel Joyce as a wise—and utterly irresistible—storyteller.

love_anthony_cover_webJoin the Bookworms to discuss ...Love Anthony by Lisa Genova.

"I’m always hearing about how my brain doesn’t work right…But it doesn’t feel broken to me."

In an insightful, deeply human story reminiscent of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, Daniel Isn’t Talking, and The Reason I JumpNew York Times bestselling author and neuroscientist Lisa Genova offers a unique perspective in fiction—the extraordinary voice of Anthony, a nonverbal boy with autism. Anthony reveals a neurologically plausible peek inside the mind of autism, why he hates pronouns, why he loves swinging and the number three, how he experiences routine, joy, and love. And it is the voice of this voiceless boy that guides two women in this powerfully unforgettable story to discover the universal truths that connect us all.

Join the Bookworms to discuss ...Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese

http://abrahamverghese.com/

 

The story is a riveting saga of twin brothers, Marion and Shiva Stone, born of a tragic union between a beautiful Indian nun and a brash British surgeon at a mission hospital in Addis Ababa. Orphaned by their mother’s death in childbirth and their father’s disappearance, and bound together by a preternatural connection and a shared fascination with medicine, the twins come of age as Ethiopia hovers on the brink of revolution.

But it’s love, not politics – their passion for the same woman — that will tear them apart and force Marion to flee his homeland and make his way to America, finding refuge in his work at an underfunded, overcrowded New York City hospital. When the past catches up to him, wreaking havoc and destruction, Marion has to entrust his life to the two men he has trusted least in the world: the surgeon father who abandoned him and the brother who betrayed him.

Young Adult Lit – it’s not just for Teens anymore! The Hunger Games frenzy and Divergent craze have opened up a new fan base for Teen books – ADULTS like you and me! Come share in this new book club for adults only. We will pick a book each month, watch part of the movie version, share snacks, play games, and chat like we are YA @ heart.

It's time to pause and read at Paws for Reading! Come to the library and read with a registered therapy dog from TDI (Therapy Dogs International).

You may bring a favorite book or choose from our basket of easy readers. Please call the library at 724-695-8150 or stop in to sign up for your 15 minute time slot.

Adults & Older Teens

This month's choice...

The Cookbook Club is the perfect excuse for foodies and kitchen novices alike to gather and have a good time.  So stop in at the library and pick up your copy from the "holds" shelf soon.  Pick a recipe that piques your interest (or taste buds).  Be sure to register you and your recipe, in order for us to keep track of who is making what and also to keep members from choosing the same dish.  Happy Cooking!
