ADULT BOOK CLUB: MY LIFE ON THE ROAD
Nov

ADULT BOOK CLUB: MY LIFE ON THE ROAD

The Adult Book Club meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our November read is My Life on the Road, a memoir by Gloria Steinem. Check out the plot summary below!

“Gloria Steinem had an itinerant childhood. When she was a young girl, her father would pack the family in the car every fall and drive across country searching for adventure and trying to make a living. The seeds were planted: Gloria realized that growing up didn’t have to mean settling down. And so began a lifetime of travel, of activism and leadership, of listening to people whose voices and ideas would inspire change and revolution.

My Life on the Road is the moving, funny, and profound story of Gloria’s growth and also the growth of a revolutionary movement for equality—and the story of how surprising encounters on the road shaped both. …In prose that is revealing and rich, Gloria reminds us that living in an open, observant, and “on the road” state of mind can make a difference in how we learn, what we do, and how we understand each other.”

Call or stop by our Circulation Desk to sign up!

VIRTUAL BOOK CLUB: FROM UNDER THE RUSSIAN SNOW

VIRTUAL BOOK CLUB: FROM UNDER THE RUSSIAN SNOW

Fascinated by author Michelle A. Carter’s new memoir From Under the Russian Snow? Join us for our first virtual book club! We’ll be chatting with Ms. Carter about her memoir and the writing process. Come enjoy an evening of enlightening discussion.

From Under the Russian Snow is a searing personal memoir blended with gutsy reporting and canny observation of contemporary life in the emerging democracy of pre-Putin Russia. It would be just a coming-of-(middle) age story, sprawled across the eleven time zones of the planet’s largest country — if life hadn’t intervened.”

We have limited copies of the book available at the Circulation Desk, so please call or stop by to sign up.

Ms. Carter retired in 2012 after 15 years as an instructor of journalism and communications and advisor to the award-winning student newspaper, The Argonaut, at Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont. During 1995, she served as the United States Information Agency journalist-in-residence at the Russian-American Press and Information Center in Moscow, Russia.

The views expressed in this talk are those of the speaker and do not constitute an endorsement by the Hawai‘i State Public Library System. This free event is sponsored by the Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville.

The Adult Book Club meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our October read is Girl Waits with Gun, the first volume in the Kopp Sisters saga by Amy Stewart. Check out the plot summary below!

“Constance Kopp doesn’t quite fit the mold. She towers over most men, has no interest in marriage or domestic affairs, and has been isolated from the world since a family secret sent her and her sisters into hiding fifteen years ago. One day a belligerent and powerful silk factory owner runs down their buggy, and a dispute over damages turns into a war of bricks, bullets, and threats as he unleashes his gang on their family farm. When the sheriff enlists her help in convicting the men, Constance is forced to confront her past and defend her family — and she does it in a way that few women of 1914 would have dared.”

MARINE DEBRIS LECTURE

Pacific Islands Marine Debris Regional Coordinator Mark Manuel will present a lecture on marine debris.

Learn more about marine debris below.

“Marine debris is everyone’s problem. It affects everything from the environment to the economy; from fishing and navigation to human health and safety; from the tiniest coral polyps to giant blue whales. Marine debris comes in many forms. It could be a cigarette butt tossed on the beach, or a 4,000-pound tangle of derelict fishing nets caught on a coral reef. Since 2005, the NOAA Marine Debris Program has served as a centralized program within NOAA, coordinating, strengthening, and promoting marine debris activities within the agency and among its partners and the public.”

Marine debris summary provided by the NOAA’s Office of Response and Restoration. This lecture is made possible by the NOAA, the Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville and the Princeville Public Library.
