Evening with Mary Daheim
Thursday, April 10th 7:00 pm
What's happening in Alpine now? An ill wind blows through Alpine, but Advocate publisher Emma Lord and Sheriff Milo Dodge seem immune to the prevailing angst. The newlyweds domestic idyll is most definitely over when a dead man is discovered near the fish hatchery and nobody has a clue as to his identity. Moreover, whispers of scandal travel through the quiet streets when some high school girls mysteriously take a walk on the wild side. And then Milo's dedicated deputy, Sam, a true yeoman, suddenly goes AWOL. Tongues are wagging on Front Street...and the gossip contains an air of menace in Mary Daheim's newest and one of her best Emma Lord mysteries to date.
We welcome Mary back for an evening of laughter filled discussion.

Boys In The Boat
This summer we invite you to read Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics by Daniel James Brown. This incredibly fascinating true story relates the experiences of the University of Washington's 1936 eight-oar crew and their epic quest for an Olympic gold medal, a team that transformed the sport and grabbed the attention of millions of Americans. The sons of loggers, shipyard workers and farmers, the boys defeated elite rivals first from eastern U.S. and British universities and finally the German crew rowing for Adolf Hitler in the Olympic Games in Berlin, 1936. A great story about "beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times." Other titles by the author include Under a Flaming Sky and Indifferent Stars Above.
