Morning book group: ‘Once Upon a River’
Thursday, Sept. 9, 10:30-11:30 a.m.
On a dark midwinter’s night in an ancient inn on the river Thames, an extraordinary event takes place. The regulars are telling stories to while away the dark hours, when the door bursts open on a grievously wounded stranger. In his arms is the lifeless body of a small child. Hours later, the girl stirs, takes a breath and returns to life. Is it a miracle? Is it magic? Or can science provide an explanation?
Diane Setterfield’s book is a glorious tapestry of a book that combines folklore and science, magic and myth.
Borrow a copy of the book from the library. Email email@example.com for more information.
Pete and Oliver of Pete’s Posse
Thursday, Sept. 9, 7-8 p.m.
Pete Sutherland, Oliver Scanlon, and Tristan Henderson are Pete’s Posse, a hard-driving trio that spent half a dozen years touring nationally and internationally with its innovative blend of rocking contradance music, thoughtful and hilarious original songs and soulful three-part a cappella. With Henderson now in Quebec, Sunderland and Scanlon are keeping the Posse flame burning while adding new repertoire to the mix, including Sutherland’s story songs of local history and geography. In the brand-new, state-of-the-art auditorium at the library.
