December Art Exhibit
R J Lavallee

Gardner- Yellow House

R J Lavallee will have several of his prints from the Gardner series on display in the Library's Exhibit Gallery. These prints were created by the pochoir method in which water-based acrylic paint is applied to cut stencils. The frames were made by his brother from wood that they harvested forty years ago.
December Adult Book Group
Wednesday, December 18th 4:30 p.m.

The Reason You're Alive

In December, the Book Group will be reading The Reason You're Alive by Matthew Quick. "After sixty-eight-year-old David Granger crashes his BMW, medical tests reveal a brain tumor that he readily attributes to his wartime Agent Orange exposure. He wakes up from surgery repeating a name no one in his civilian life has ever heard—that of a Native American soldier whom he was once ordered to discipline. David decides to return something precious he long ago stole from the man he now calls Clayton Fire Bear. It may be the only way to find closure in a world increasingly at odds with the one he served to protect. It may also help him to finally recover from his wife’s untimely demise..."--Amazon.
