Please join us for our April meeting of the Drop-in Book Club. This month we are reading The Vacationers by Emma Straub.
For the Posts, a two-week trip to the Balearic island of Mallorca with their extended family and friends is a celebration: Franny and Jim are observing their thirty-fifth wedding anniversary, and their daughter, Sylvia, has graduated from high school. The sunlit island, its mountains and beaches, its tapas and tennis courts, also promise an escape from the tensions simmering at home in Manhattan. But all does not go according to plan: over the course of the vacation, secrets come to light, old and new humiliations are experienced, childhood rivalries resurface, and ancient wounds are exacerbated. This is a story of the sides of ourselves that we choose to show and those we try to conceal, of the ways we tear each other down and build each other up again, and the bonds that ultimately hold us together. With wry humor and tremendous heart, Emma Straub delivers a richly satisfying story of a family in the midst of a maelstrom of change, emerging irrevocably altered yet whole. See the book in our catalog.

This month we are reading "Only Time Will Tell" by Jeffrey Archer.
The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s life begins in 1920, with the words “I was told that my father was killed in the war.” A dock worker in Bristol, Harry never knew his father, but he learns about life on the docks from his uncle, who expects Harry to join him at the shipyard once he’s left school. But then an unexpected gift wins him a scholarship to an exclusive boys’ school, and his life will never be the same again. As he enters into adulthood, Harry finally learns how his father really died, but the awful truth only leads him to question, was he even his father? Is he the son of Arthur Clifton, a stevedore who spent his whole life on the docks, or the firstborn son of a scion of West Country society, whose family owns a shipping line?

From the time she was twelve, Julie Holt knew what a random tragedy can do to a family. At that tender age, her little sister disappeared-never to be found. It was a loss that slowly eroded the family bonds she once relied on. As an adult with a prestigious job in the arts, Julie meets a struggling artist who reminds her so much of her sister, she can't help feeling protective. It is a friendship that begins a long and painful process of healing for Julie, leading her to a house on the Gulf Coast, ravaged by hurricane Katrina, and to stories of family that take her deep into the past.

Keith builds beautiful sculptural creations (massive & miniature) with enthusiasm, humor and style. One moment he will be encasing a dinosaur in a bubble and in the next moment he's encapsulating an audience volunteer.

This two hour presentation will focus on how to best develop your on line profile and existence (LinkedIn, Facebook, etc) in order to maximize your career search and networking opportunities. With over 25 years in the Recruiting and Staffing industry I have extensive experience assisting people with their career searches and in how to best utilize numerous resources to help them along their professional path. After attending similar seminars/presentations that fell short of my expectations (and were priced well over $100) I have put together a presentation that I believe will be a tremendous help to those looking to make a move, re-renter the working world or who want to maximize their experience so they are ready for the next opportunity when it's presented. Aside from the information you receive at the seminar I also make myself available to attendees for future follow up and assistance as they look to capitalize on the information provided. Seats are limited to the first 15 people that register
