Brown Bag: "Patience of the Spider"

Tuesday, January 20, 2015 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Winning fans in Europe and America for their dark sophistication and dry humor, Andrea Camilleri's crime novels are classics of the genre. Set once again in Sicily, The Patience of the Spider pits Inspector Montalbano against his greatest foe yet: the weight of his own years. Still recovering from a gunshot wound, he must overcome self-imposed seclusion and waxing self-doubt to penetrate a web of hatred and secrets in pursuit of the strangest culprit he's ever hunted. A mystery unlike any other, this emotionally taut story brings the Montalbano saga to a captivating crossroads.

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.
