The Lives They Lived: "Deep Down Dark"

Tuesday, September 22, 2015 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Crises of faith are the dominant theme of Héctor Tobar's "Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free," which tells the story of the 33 miners who were buried for 69 days in a collapsed Chilean mine in 2010.

With his exclusive access to the survivors, Tobar, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, graphically recounts the quandaries that beset the men, as well as their families camped out at the mine's entrance, the officials, and rescue crews, as a worldwide audience watched.

What's Cooking?: "The Food You Crave"

Sunday, September 13, 2015 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Each month we'll ask you to make two recipes from a designated cookbook: we'll choose the first recipe and ask you to make it at home; you choose the second and bring it to our discussion to share. We'll meet to discuss both recipes and to sample the one you chose. We'll have a potluck of tasty treats!

This month's selection is "The Food You Crave" by Ellie Krieger, and our recipe choice is Sloppy Joes. Copies of the book are available at Maze Branch one month prior to the event.
