Reading Roundup
William Jeanes Memorial Library, Monday, May 2 at 5:30pm
Children ages 4-8 are invited to join us for this buddy reading program! Children are paired one-on-one with teen volunteers for 45 minutes of reading together. The younger buddy chooses the books (from the library or brought from home) and either practices reading or enjoys being read to by their teen buddy. Either way, both buddies benefit! Space is limited and registration is required. Register below or by calling the library at 610-828-0441. Teens interested in volunteering to be a buddy can contact Sara Huff, Teen Librarian, at shuff@mclinc.org or by calling the library. (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

Writing Workshop: Writing True Stories I
William Jeanes Memorial Library, Wednesday, May 4 at 7:30pm
*WRITING WORSHOP*
WRITING TRUE STORIES
Wednesdays
April 6, 20, and May 4
6:30 - 7:45 pm

In this FREE workshop participants will be introduced to the art of writing a short story using details of one's life. Specifically, the focus will be on a method that allows participants to "restory" selected events in their lives into narrative content. Participants will engage in hands-on activities to begin the process of writing from their own life experiences.
Kathy-Ann Hernandez, Ph.D., is a professor at Eastern University. Her most recent book, Collaborative Autoethnography, explains the process of using life experiences to create publishable narrative content. Drawing on her love for writing and her passion for intentional living, she relies on her true life experiences to write a regular blog at valuewhatmatters.com
This is a FREE workshop, but registration is required. Participants should plan to attend all 3 workshops. Please register online or by calling Lisa at 610-828-0441 ext. 103. (added from Eventkeeper)

April 6, 2016, at 7 p.m.: Barnes, Julian. The Sense of an Ending
A novel so compelling that it begs to be read in a single setting, The Sense of an Ending has the psychological and emotional depth and sophistication of Henry James at his best, and is a stunning new chapter in Julian Barnes's oeuvre. 
Winner of the 2011 Man Booker Prize
One of The Atlantic's Best Books I Read This Year
“Elegant, playful, and remarkable.” —The New Yorker 
“A page-turner, and when you finish you will return immediately to the beginning.” —San Francisco Chronicle
“Beautiful. . . . An elegantly composed, quietly devastating tale.” —Heller McAlpin, NPR
 
 
 
May 4, 2016, at 7 p.m.: Lee, Harper. Go Set a Watchman 
Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.
Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch—Scout—struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.
Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee’s enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.
