Book Buzz -- Discover new books, broaden your horizons, and share your insights.
1984, by George Orwell
1984 is the year in which it happens. The world is divided into three great powers. Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia, each perpetually at war with the other. Throughout Oceania, 'The Party' rules by the agency of four ministries, whose power is absolute -- the Ministry of Peace, which deals with war, the Ministry of Love (headquarters of the dreaded Thought Police), which deals with law and order, the Ministry of Plenty, which deals in scarcities, and the Ministry of Truth which deals with propaganda. The authorities keep a check on every action, word, gesture or thought.
Discussion will be led by Youth Services Librarian Mary Inman. Copies of the book are available one month in advance at the Circulation Desk. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome. (added from Eventkeeper)

Kinded Spirits Book Club: The Sun and Other Stars Discussion
Evergreen Park Public Library, Wednesday, September 24 at 7pm
By Chicago author, Brigid Pasulka. In the seaside village of San Benedetto, a resort town on the Italian Riviera, twenty-two year old Etto finds himself adrift. Within the past year, Etto has not only lost both his twin brother and his mother, but in his grief has become estranged from his father, the local butcher. While his father passes the time with the men of the town in the fine tradition of Italian men everywhere—a reverential obsession with soccer—Etto retreats ever further from his day-to-day life, seeking out solace in the hills above the town.

But when Yuri Fil, a scandalized Ukrainian soccer star, takes refuge in the town along with his captivating younger sister, Zhuki, they sweep Etto into their universe of faith, hope, love and humor. Accompanied on his journey by the modern incarnations from Dante's Divine Comedy who populate his town, Etto starts to reconstruct his relationship with his father, learns to stop playing defense, and once again opens himself up to the world.

Lay It on My Heart

This piercing debut novel tells the story of one unforgettable month in a Kentucky girl's thirteenth year. Charmaine Peake's prophet father has been committed to a psychiatric institution, and her mother, forced to rent out their home, has moved the family down to a trailer on the river. Now a sanctimonious missionary kid has taken over Charmaine's bedroom, where he keeps a stash of strange and questionable photographs. Amidst all of the upheaval, Charmaine tries to pray as her father taught, but it seems like even God has changed. Angela Pneuman is the author of Home Remedies and has had stories appear in Best American Short Stories, Ploughshares, and other literary magazines. She currently teaches fiction writing at Stanford University and has received the Presidential Fellowship from SUNY Albany and the first inaugural Alice Hoffman Prize for short fiction from Ploughshares.

Hysterical

Anna Freud was her father Sigmund's sounding board and chief collaborator. Yet she harbored secrets that could have shaken the foundations of his legacy. Hysterical, a fictional autobiography, tells the full story of Anna for the first time, tunneling deep into her childhood experiences, dreams, and fantasies-not unlike a therapy session. The novel leads readers through Anna's young adulthood, her decision to become a teacher, then analyst, and advocate for children. It also describes her first love, coming out, and her life with Dorothy Burlingham, in turn chronicling the history of gayness as "illness." Rebecca Coffey is a science journalist, contributing to Scientific American, Discover, and Vermont Public Radio. She is also a regular commentator on the Progressive Voices Radio Network and the author ofNietzsche's Angel Food Cake: And Other "Recipes" for the Intellectually Famished.
