Evening Book Discussion Group

On Wednesday, May 19 at 7:00 pm, we will be discussing via Zoom A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle.  Please email Library Director Marija Skoog at mlskoog@mclinc.org for Zoom credentials.  All are welcome!

In this witty and warm-hearted account, Peter Mayle tells what it is like to realize a long-cherished dream and actually move into a 200-year-old stone farmhouse in the remote country of the Lubéron with his wife and two large dogs. He endures January’s frosty mistral as it comes howling down the Rhône Valley, discovers the secrets of goat racing through the middle of town, and delights in the glorious regional cuisine.

A Year in Provence transports us into all the earthy pleasures of Provençal life and lets us live vicariously at a tempo governed by seasons, not by days. (From the publisher.)

Afternoon Book Discussion Group

On Tuesday, May 18 at 12:30 pm, we will be discussing via Zoom The Rent Collector by Camron Wright. Please email Reference librarian Barbara Loewengart at bloewengart@mclinc.org for Zoom credentials.  All are welcome!

Survival for Ki Lim and Sang Ly is a daily battle at Stung Meanchey, the largest municipal waste dump in all of Cambodia.
They make their living scavenging recyclables from the trash. Life would be hard enough without the worry for their chronically ill child, Nisay, and the added expense of medicines that are not working.
Just when things seem worst, Sang Ly learns a secret about the ill-tempered woman they call “the rent collector” who comes demanding money—a secret that dates back to the Khmer Rouge and sets in motion a tide that will change the life of everyone it sweeps past.
The Rent Collector powerfully illustrates how literacy can change lives and how anyone can “rise from the ashes” in the most unlikely of places. (From the publisher.)

Memoir Writing Circle

The Memoir Writing Circle, which under normal circumstances would meet in person at the library, is now sharing their writing via Email. The group will be suspending their monthly email gatherings for April and May. Each month a member of the group offers a writing prompt.  Each member submits their piece to the group by a specified deadline and everyone offers each other supportive feedback. Submitting a piece each month is not required, but definitely encouraged. Please contact Kathy Thomas at k3Thomas@yahoo.com for more information or to become part of the group.

Join writers in finding their voice through memoir writing. The group will use writing prompts, poems, journal entries and images to discover the compelling themes and stories that comprise a memoir. Suitable for writers of all levels and experience.
