The Reading Circle @ Kennedy

May 28, 2009

Monday, June 15 at 12PM
Meeting Room @ Kennedy

The Kennedy Library Reading Circle is gearing up for summer.
Join us as we discuss lively and thought-provoking novels.

The first featured book is The Shipping News by Annie Proulx, Several copies are available for check out at the Kennedy Library Circulation Desk.  

The Shipping News is winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.  A family crisis propels Quoyle, a 36-year old, third-rate newspaper man, out of a mundane existence and into a strange, new life on the starkly beautiful Newfoundland coast amidst a quirky collection of local characters, mysterious knots, and the power of the family homestead. 

“Annie Proulx’s stunning, big-hearted The Shipping News thaws the frozen lives of its characters and warms readers.” —San Francisco Chronicle

If you have any questions about the Reading Circle @ MPL, please call Donna Browne at 741-5155.

Music @ the Library

May 18, 2009

Mystical HarpMusic @ the Library
Sunday, June 7 @ Kennedy

 Enjoy music in the Sonata sculpture area. Take a step out of reality and into the mystical, magical world of Megan Upchurch, harpist, vocalist, and songwriter. Megan’s ethereal music will soothe and inspire. The spirit of her music comes from within, but its roots are in the land of her Celtic heritage; a land of myths, beauty, and mystery. To listen to her bardic melodies, is to share in tales of love and loss, joy and sorrow, inspiration and despair. Visit Megan’s webpage at http://www.mysticalharp.com to learn more and hear samples of her music.
