Mayhem in the AM Book Club - Holmes on the Range by Steven Hockensmith May 11, 2017 from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM
1893 is a tough year in Montana, and any job is a good job. When brothers Big Red and Old Red Amlingmeyer sign on as ranch hands at a secretive ranch, they're not expecting much more than hard work, bad pay, and a few free moments to enjoy their favorite pastime: reading stories about Sherlock Holmes. When another hand turns up dead, Old Red sees the perfect opportunity to employ his Holmes-inspired "deducifyin'" skills and sets out to solve the case. Big Red, like it or not (and mostly he does not), is along for the wild ride in this clever, compelling, and completely one-of-a-kind mystery.

CommUnity Book Club--Lost In Shangri-la May 25, 2017 from 07:00 PM to 08:00 PM
Lost in Shangri-la by Mitchell Zuckoff, is the exhilarating, untold story of an extraordinary rescue mission near the end of World War II. A plane carrying 24 members of the United States military, including nine Women’s Army Corps members, crashed into the New Guinea jungle during a sightseeing excursion. The three survivors were stranded deep in a jungle valley notorious for its cannibalistic tribes. The story of their survival and the stunning efforts undertaken to save them are the crux of Lost in Shangri-La. Contact the library to obtain a copy and join in the discussion.
The Searchers--Great Directors Film Series May 08, 2017 from 01:00 PM to 03:00 PM
This month's Monday matinee is The Searchers, a 1956 western directed by John Ford. The film stars John Wayne as Ethan Edwards, a middle-aged Civil War veteran who spends years looking for his abducted niece, played by Natalie Wood. Roger Ebert found Ethan Edwards to be "one of the most compelling characters Ford and Wayne ever created." Although The Searchers received no Academy Award nominations, it has come to be considered a masterpiece by critics, and was named the greatest American western by the American Film Institute in 2008. We will begin the movie at 1:00 PM and light snacks will be served.
