THE ROUND HOUSE by Louise Erdrich
Monday, June 12, at 6:00 p.m.

Sandy Zagarell, Oberlin College, discussion leader

One of the most revered novelists of our time, Louise Erdrich returns to the Ojibwe reservation in North Dakota. It is an exquisitely told story of a boy on the cusp of manhood who seeks justice and understanding in the wake of a terrible crime that upends and forever transforms his family.  This is a page-turning masterpiece of literary fiction—at once a powerful coming-of-age story, a mystery, and a tender, moving novel of family, history, and culture.

THE BOY WHO HARNESSED THE WIND by William Kamkwamba
Monday, July 10, at 6:00 p.m.

Dennis McMullen and David Swaldo, Sandusky Library, discussion leaders

When a terrible drought struck William Kamkwamba's tiny village in Malawi, his family lost all of the season's crops, leaving them with nothing to eat and nothing to sell. William began to explore science books in his village library, looking for a solution. There, he came up with the idea that would change his family's life forever: he could build a windmill. Made out of scrap metal and old bicycle parts, William's windmill brought electricity to his home and helped his family pump the water they needed to farm the land.

BOOK DISCUSSION:  NOT A DROP TO DRINK by Mindy McGinnis
Monday, July 31, at 6:00 p.m.

John Montag, discussion leader
A futuristic story where water is worth more than gold, and a teenage girl must protect her family’s water supply in a world plagued by cholera.   The author will visit on Wednesday, August 9, at 6:00 p.m. This program is part of Not a Drop To Drink - Celebrating Ohio Book Awards & Authors.  With the generous support of a State Library LSTA grant, we will present seven programs which show the importance of water in our environment and what could happen if our water supply becomes contaminated.


DESTINY OF THE REPUBLIC:  A TALE OF MADNESS, MEDICINE, AND THE MURDER OF A PRESIDENT by Candice Millard
Monday, August 28, at 6:00 p.m.

Dennis McMullen and David Swaldo, Sandusky Library, discussion leaders

The extraordinary New York Times bestselling account of James Garfield's rise from poverty to the American presidency, and the dramatic history of his assassination and legacy. Meticulously researched, epic in scope, and pulsating with an intimate human focus and high-velocity narrative drive, The Destiny of the Republic brings alive a forgotten chapter of U.S. history.

 

“LAKE” READS LIGHT BOOK DISCUSSION:

LOST LAKE by Sarah Addison Allen
Monday, August 14, at 6:00 p.m
.
Terri Estel and Lori Loreno, Sandusky Library, discussion leaders

Lost Lake is where Kate Pheris spent her last best summer at the age of twelve,  before she learned of loneliness, and heartbreak, and loss. Now she's all too familiar with those things, but she knows about hope too, thanks to her resilient daughter Devin, and her own willingness to start moving forward. Perhaps at Lost Lake her little girl can cling to her own childhood for just a little longer... and maybe Kate herself can rediscover something that slipped through her fingers so long ago. Can they find what they need before it's too late?
