---- — EAST KINGSTON — We have a number of activities coming soon to the library at East Kingston. Our book club is reading “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” by Ben Fountain. Find a description of the storyline at Shelfari.com (this is a great site to record your reading history and find new titles to share with friends).
“Nineteen-year-old Billy Lynn is the hero of Bravo Company, whose actions during an ambush in the Iraq war were captured on video and broadcast endlessly on Fox News. Recognizing an opportunity to galvanize support for the war, the Army evacuates the eight surviving soldiers to America for a hero’s tour of the heartlandPick up a copy at the desk and join a lively discussion on Wed., March 27, at 7:00 p.m.
We have two gardening workshops coming up in April, too. A talk on Ornamental Grasses will be presented on Wed., April 10 at 6:45 p.m., and we will learn about Fruit Trees and their care on Wed., April 17 at 6:45 p.m. Even a tiny yard can benefit from low maintenance beauty of ornamentals or small scale farming and land use.
Come early to save your seat for these popular programs. We will see you there at the East Kingston Public library!
