The Lives They Lived: "Messages from My Father"

Tuesday, January 20, 2015 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Calvin Trillin's fond, wry, and affecting memoir of his father, Abe, looks at a stubborn man who was given to swearing off things -- coffee, tobacco, alcohol, all neckties that were not yellow in color. Although Abe Trillin had a strong vision of the sort of person he wanted his son to be, his explicit advice about how to behave didn't go beyond an almost lackadaisical, "You might as well be a mensch." Somehow, though, Abe's messages got through clearly. Admirers of Calvin Trillin's unerring sense of the American character will be entertained and touched by this quietly powerful memoir.

Inspiration - Living Life Mindfully: "Falling Upward"

Sunday, January 25, 2015 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

In "Falling Upward", Richard Rohr seeks to help readers understand and appreciate the second half of their lives. He challenges the ideas society has taught us about how getting old is a future rife with health issues and letting go of life. Rohr shows that those of us who have gone "down" are the ones who truly understand "up," and those who have fallen are the ones who can grow spiritually and not misuse "up." Books are available at the Dole Branch Library one month before the discussion.
