10:00 am. – 11:30 am.
Library Conference Room

Please join us to discuss Mary Alice Monroe’s The Butterfly’s Daughters. Additional copies are available at the Circulation Desk.

Publisher Summary:

Four very different women embark on a transformational journey that follows the migrating monarchs across the United States to Mexico. The story begins when Luz Avila’s grandmother, the local butterfly lady, purchases an old, orange VW bug for a road trip home to Mexico. When she unexpectedly dies, Luz is inspired to take her grandmother’s ashes home. In the manner of the Aztec myth of the goddess who brings light to the world, Luz attracts a collection of lost women, each seeking change in their lives. The Mexican people believe the monarchs are the spirits of the recently departed and Luz taps into ancient rituals and myths as she follows the spectacular, glittering river of orange monarchs in the sky to home.

Gardening is Murder

Gardening is MurderSaturday, May 10th
1:00 pm.
Library Community Room

Join us as author Neal Sanders gives a humorous talk about gardening from a husband’s unique perspective.

Why does the introduction of one plant into a garden start a game of musical chairs that results in the displacement of at least two other plants?
Why do we have garden benches around our yards if no one ever sits in them?
Why grow potatoes if when you harvest them you discover they are on sale that week at the grocery store for $1.99 for ten pounds?

Registration is required. Please register at the Circulation Desk or by calling 413-525-5400, Ext. 1511.
