Books Inc. in the Castro is pleased to announce our next Book Group selection: Berlin Stories by Christopher Isherwood. A classic of 20th-century fiction, "Berlin Stories" inspired the Broadway musical and Oscar-winning film "Cabaret," First published in the 1930s, "The Berlin Stories" contains two astonishing related novels, "The Last of Mr. Norris" and "Goodbye to Berlin," which are recognized today as classics of modern fiction. Isherwood magnificently captures 1931 Berlin: charming, with its avenues and cafes; marvelously grotesque, with its nightlife and dreamers; dangerous, with its vice and intrigue; powerful and seedy, with its mobs and millionaires--this is the period when Hitler was beginning his move to power. "The Berlin Stories" is inhabited by a wealth of characters: the unforgettable Sally Bowles, whose misadventures in the demimonde were popularized on the American stage and screen by Julie Harris in "I Am A Camera" and Liza Minnelli in "Cabaret"; Mr. Norris, the improbable old debauchee mysteriously caught between the Nazis and the Communists; plump Fraulein Schroeder, who thinks an operation to reduce the scale of her Buste might relieve her heart palpitations; and the distinguished and doomed Jewish family, the Landauers.

Tammy Palmer, Green River resident and novice knitter, is asking people to “sit ‘n stitch” with her on Monday’s from 10-12 at the Sweetwater County Library. She said it’s a way to get people together to knit or crochet and learn from one another. She approached Carla Hardy, Head Librarian, to see if she could use the room for the needle arts, sewing, and crafts projects. Hardy approved using the room for “sit ’n stitch, and Palmer has brought her latest knitting project to work on at the library for the past couple of weeks.
Palmer is a self-taught knitter which began when she decided she wanted to learn how to knit socks. She said it took her eight months to knit her first pair of socks learning as she went by reading instructions and using the Internet. Instead of sitting at home knitting, she thought it would be more fun to work on projects with other people and learn from them.
Palmer and Hardy say participants should bring their own project, supplies and tools to the library. Small children are welcome but must remain in the meeting room with the adult. For more information, contact Hardy at 875-3615, ext. 1410 or Palmer at 875-6034. (clik4)… (more)
