In I Was Told To Come Alone: My Journey Behind the Lines of Jihad, author Souad Mekhennet traces her journey from points in Europe where the 9/11 attacks were fomented to the Turkish-Syria border and back to Europe where terror has come to the heart of Western civilization.  This fascinating account by a reporter of the Washington Post takes the reader into places where not many journalists have gained access, much less a Muslim woman such as Mekhennet.

Come enjoy the discussion---it's certain to be an interesting one!  Anyone is welcome to attend and refreshments will be served.  For more information, contact Jackie Greene, Reference Librarian, at 936.442.7728, ext. 6314; or email jgreene@countylibrary.org

Why should kids take an interest in Genealogy?  Genealogy can open up a whole new world for them.
If they are bored with history, learning about their ancestors will bring a fresh, new perspective to it.
Learning about their family history can help children develop a better sense of who they are and why they look and act the way they do. It also enhances their feeling of stability and security when they realize they are part of something bigger than themselves.
Genealogy helps kids remember people who are important to their family, even if they never get to meet them.
