In American Fire: Love, Arson, and Life in a Vanishing Land by Monica Hesse, the once-thriving coastal Virginian county of Accomack experienced a string of arson fires that roiled the community. Vigilante groups sprang up and police and firemen were stretched thin. What factors contributed to this area's decimated economy, making it a microcosm of rural America?  What motives do arsonists have, in particular, the arsonist found to be the culprit behind the numerous fires that caused a community to spend months in anguish? Come and discuss the book with us and enjoy refreshments too.

Any adult is invited to attend.  If you have questions, call Jackie Greene, Reference Librarian, at 936.442.7728, ext. 6314 or contact her at jgreene@countylibrary.org

Join us for an enlightening discussion of High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic by Glenn Frankel. Who knew that there is much more significance to the revered, award-winning movie High Noon than we imagined!  Because this Western was made during the height of the Hollywood blacklist, it served as a sort of allegory for the swirl of controversy, courage, and tension surrounding its screenwriter and others involved with the film. 

Any adult is invited to attend and refreshments will be served.  For questions, contact Jackie Greene, Reference Librarian, at 936.442.7728, ext. 6314 or at jgreene@countylibrary.org

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 formented 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
