Non-Fiction Addiction Book Club (1st Thursday each Month)

Thursday, February 5, 2015
6 PM - 7:45 PM
Meeting Room

Discussion: Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared,
leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood.
Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared; it was Lt. Louis Zamperini.
Captured by the Japanese and driven to the limits of endurance, the 1936 Olympian Zamperini
would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor.
The 2010 award-winning book is now on the movie screen and the discussion is bound to be lively!

Are you also a reader of the real-life and true tales that are often stranger than a writer could imagine?
Do you enjoy sharing those adventures with others? The Non-Fiction Addiction group is for you.

The group led by library volunteer Paul Landry welcomes newcomers to its meetings on the first Thursday evening of each month.
Right now, members are beginning to select additional discussion titles for 2015.

Would you like to suggest a good book for the group's discussion? Would you like more information about the group?
Contact Library Staff member SuzAnne Beard by emailing or telephoning 512-858-7825 any afternoon during the week.

Accomplished players and interested participants alike are invited to rattle the tiles and join the fun! Mah-jongg enthusiast Elizabeth Glidden will introduce you to other players  and get you started.  Bring a current Mah-Jongg card and your set if you have one.

“Mah-jongg is played with four players using tiles stamped with Chinese symbols,” said Elizabeth Glidden.  “The goal of the game is to be the first to match your tiles to a specific hand from the National Mah Jongg League's (NMJL) annually distributed scorecard by picking and discarding.  It’s rather like the card game Gin Rummy – only faster! I will provide my own set of Mah-Jongg and have handouts to teach the rules of play.”
