THE BEATLES: MAKIN' THE '60S FAB & THE CONCERT EXPERIENCE
Tuesday, July 23, at 6:00 p.m.

Dave Schwensen, presenter
Beatlemania swept across North America as a generation fell under the influence of the group’s sound, style, and personalities. Popular music, fashion, and attitudes changed almost overnight. Hair was longer, skirts were shorter, and the generation gap grew wider as the youth of America began questioning authority and making up their own rules. The effects are still being felt today.

BOOK DISCUSSION: THE MARTIAN by Andy Weir
Monday, August 12, at 6:00 p.m.
Dennis McMullen and David Swaldo, Sandusky Library, discussion leaders
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?
