NEW BOOK DISCUSSION

There is a new book discussion at the library that meets on the second Wednesday of the month at 1 PM. The focus is on non-fiction, and it is open to all.The group is still undecided for a name, for now it is Not Just History, but we're working on a catchy title.  Monthly selections will be chosen by the group members. The April 14th meeting wiill discuss Island in the Center of the World  by Russsell Shorto. This prize-winning book looks at the beginnings of Manhattan history largely due to a current historian who is translating twelve thousand pages of original Dutch documents. The book is presented in a very easy-to-read style and clears up several falsities about early Dutch-Indian relations. Reserve a copy at the adult reference desk and check future fliers for the May and June readings.
