This new writing group for teens and adults will proceed as a workshop featuring writing exercises, idea prompts, and supportive, constructive feedback. Our focus will be short (and very short) stories and over time we’ll try to discover and shape initial inspirations into polished, publishable stories. Writers with all levels of experience are welcome. Sessions are moderated by an award-winning author and former writing professor (who also happens to be The Community Library’s Adult Services Librarian). Our first session is scheduled for 6:00 pm on Tuesday, December 14.  Sponsored by The Community Library.

This new program is a time for fans of certain genres, subjects, or styles of media to meet other fans and share recommendations. Every meeting will focus on a different type of content. At one meeting we might focus on spy novels. The next meeting we might focus on Regency-era romance novels. Or television shows with supernatural elements. Or movies starring Audrey Hepburn. No assigned readings! Participants will be able to offer their favorite recommendations in the chosen genre or just listen and take notes of things they might want to check out later. Adult Services Librarian Don LaPlant will moderate the discussion and provide info about relevant library holdings. The inaugural meeting is scheduled for 12:00 pm on Friday, December 3 and will focus on cozy murder mysteries with amateur sleuths. Feel free to bring a bag lunch and join in the conversation.

Join us for the second meeting of our new book club, where every month we focus on a different type of book and participants share their favorites and make recommendations. This month's focus will be books written during or about the Gilded Age in America, which we're broadly defining as 1865-1914 (between the end of the Civil War to the beginning of World War One). Authors from this period who are sure to receive attention include Edith Wharton, Henry James, Willa Cather, Mark Twain, Kate Chopin, Paul Lawrence Dunbar, Theodore Dreiser, Booker T. Washington, and W.E.B. DuBois--not to mention contemporary authors writing stories set during the Gilded Age. Come take part in the conversation and maybe pick up a few reading recommendations.
