International Observe the Moon Night

Join fellow moon lovers (or Selenophiles) to observe the moon. 
Friday, October 15th, at 7pm. Masks are requested.

From NASA: “International Observe the Moon Night occurs annually in September or October, when the Moon is around first quarter ― a great phase for evening observing. Furthermore, a first-quarter Moon offers excellent viewing opportunities along the terminator (the line between night and day), where shadows enhance the Moon’s cratered landscape.”

The Library Book Club will next meet on Thursday, October 21st, at 6:30pm. 
 

The book will be The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley:

 

It is the summer of 1950–and at the once-grand mansion of Buckshaw, young Flavia de Luce, an aspiring chemist with a passion for poison, is intrigued by a series of inexplicable events: A dead bird is found on the doorstep, a postage stamp bizarrely pinned to its beak. Then, hours later, Flavia finds a man lying in the cucumber patch and watches him as he takes his dying breath.

For Flavia, who is both appalled and delighted, life begins in earnest when murder comes to Buckshaw. “I wish I could say I was afraid, but I wasn’t. Quite the contrary. This was by far the most interesting thing that had ever happened to me in my entire life.”


Copies are available at the Front Circulation Desk.
