Book Group Begins Again Wednesday, September 22 7:00 p.m.
Our group will be reading Henderson The Rain King by Saul Bellow. This is an older novel (1959), and is a philosophical, absurd, irreverent adventure story! It is ranked #21 on Modern Library's list of the 100 Best Novels in the English Language. If you'[ve never read Saul Bellow, try this out, and and come chat about it with a great group of people. Thank you, Diane, for joining us last month. It's always great to have new people join us.
Book Discussions are on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 7pm. We always welcome new members!
STORY TIME will be back in Spring 2022 Stay tuned...

Thereminist C.G. Martiello will present a truly unique experience to introduce the instrument in an engaging, educational show, exploring the captivating history of its creation, how it works, and how the Theremin has come to shape the face of modern sound, such as movie scores and sound effects!

Lecture-performance-workshop typically runs 45 minutes to an hour. Its more than just spooky sounds, it’s the music of lightning and air!
