Mullis Center Book Club on Mon. September 20, 1:15pm

Join us for this month’s discussion of the National Book Award finalist, The Leavers by Lisa Ko. “This wrenching and all-too-topical debut novel picks up the life of an 11-year-old American-born boy on the day his mother, an undocumented Chinese immigrant, disappears…Ko uses the voices of both the boy and his birth mother to tell a story that unfolds in graceful, realistic fashion and defies expectations,” writes The New York Times. Copies are available through the Library. This month’s meeting will be held in “hybrid format” with many participants in person at the Mullis Center, with simultaneous open access to attend via Zoom.

Nature Matters: The Secret Lives of Trees on Wednesday, September 8 at 7:00pm

Can trees talk? Do trees have feelings? Can they experience pain, joy, or grief? We have been taught to view plants as inanimate, and without characteristics we normally equate with the animal kingdom. But science now understands that plants do communicate, respond to harm, and help one another. Learn to look at and respond to trees in brand-new ways!
To register for this Zoom event email giverson@sjlib.org at least 30 minutes before the event.
