Non-Fiction Addiction Book Club (1st Thursday each Month)
Thursday, April 2, 2015
S.C. Gwynne's Empire of the Summer Moon spans two astonishing stories. The first traces the rise and fall of the Comanches, the most powerful Indian tribe in American history. The second entails one of the most remarkable narratives ever to come out of the Old West: the epic saga of the pioneer woman Cynthia Ann Parker and her mixed-blood son Quanah, who became the last and greatest chief of the Comanches.
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. To receive a special email with upcoming reminders about discussion titles, sign up for The NonFiction Book Letter here. Would you like more information about the group?
Contact Library Staff member SuzAnne Beard by emailing email@example.com or telephoning 512-858-7825 any afternoon during the week.
Charlotte's Book Club Meets on the 2nd Thursday
Thursday, April 9, 2015
In classic Western style, the Pulitzer Prize winning author illustrates the timeless conflict between the modernity and the Old West through the eyes of Texas cattlemen. The book centers on Homer Bannon, an old-time cattleman who epitomizes the frontier values of honesty and decency, and Hud, his unscrupulous stepson. Caught in the middle is the narrator, Homer's young grandson Lonnie, who is equally drawn to his grandfather’s strength of character and Hud's materialism.
Charlotte’s Book Club, a book-centered discussion group, is always open to interested readers in the Dripping Springs area. Five copies of novels under discussion are purchased by the Dripping Springs Community Library and are available to discussion participants upon request until the supply is exhausted.For a complete preview of the 2015 discussion titles, click here.
The group of adult readers takes it name and inspiration from Charlotte Walters Rhodes, a lifelong champion of the Dripping Springs Community Library. For more information about Charlotte's Book Club on Goodreads, click here.
Mah-jongg! Mysterious? Maybe? Fun? Definitely!
Accomplished players and interested participants alike are invited to
rattle the tiles and join the fun every Wednesday of
each month from 1 – 4 PM in the Dripping Springs Community Library
Meeting Room. 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.”
Want to be included in the fun? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive email reminders each month!
