Mayhem in the AM Book Club - Bridge to Deliverance by Elizabeth George Mar 09, 2017 from 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM
To this day, the low, thin wail of an infant can be heard in Keldale's lush green valleys. Three hundred years ago, as legend goes, the frightened Yorkshire villagers smothered a crying babe in Keldale Abbey, where they'd hidden to escape the ravages of Cromwell's raiders. Now into Keldale's pastoral web of old houses and older secrets comes Scotland Yard Inspector Thomas Lynley, the eighth earl of Asherton. Along with the redoubtable Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers, Lynley has been sent to solve a savage murder that has stunned the peaceful countryside. For fat, unlovely Roberta Teys has been found in her best dress, an axe in her lap, seated in the old stone barn beside her father's headless corpse. Her first and last words were "I did it. And I'm not sorry." Yet as Lynley and Havers wind their way through Keldale's dark labyrinth of secret scandals and appalling crimes, they uncover a shattering series of revelations that will reverberate through this tranquil English valley—and in their own lives as well.

CommUNITY Book Club--The Color of Water Feb 23, 2017 from 07:00 PM to 08:00 PM
Journalist and musician, James McBride, is one of 12 siblings who grew up in a poor housing project in Brooklyn, NY. He was the son of a black minister, and a woman who would not admit she was white. In the biography, The Color of Water, McBride tells the remarkable story of his mother's long buried past--how her Jewish family came to America to escape persecution, and how she left her faith and family behind as a teen, to move to New York, where she married and started a family. The Color of Water is a moving and remarkable tribute that spent over two years on the New York Times Bestseller List. Contact the library to obtain a copy of this book and join in the discussion.
