If you are a reader and like to talk about the books you've read, you'll enjoy the Library's book discussions. The Adult Book Discussion Group normally meets the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 P.M. in the Jefferson Room. The Library tries to have sufficient copies of the books chosen available for anyone who needs to borrow one. View the 2013 selections.
The January 2014 selection is:
Set aside Monday evenings for a visit to the library and a free evening's entertainment in the Slater Room of the Warren Public Library, eating popcorn, and watching a movie on the large screen television set. Monday Night Movies, a program for adult audiences (some of the movies may have a PG rating - teens with parental permission are welcome to attend) happens every Monday at 5:30 p.m. Check the library calendar on the library's home page to see the title of the movie. The Library's movie license does not permit advertising the titles of the movies outside the Library, but additional information about the films is available in the Library or by calling 723-4650.
All movies are free of charge and do not require pre-registration.
The Warren Public Library is offering an opportunity for writers to receive feedback and support in their writing. This group is a non-instructor led opportunity for individuals to spend time writing in the company of fellow authors and sharing and critiquing their work and the works of others. The group will meet on the third Wednesday of each month in the Jefferson Room in the basement of the Library. The format for the group will be as follows: each individual will spend from 6-7 p.m. writing; the 7-8 p.m. time slot will be spent sharing writing and seeking support and assistance from their fellow writers. New volunteers moderators will be selected from within the group each month. This group is open to teens and adult and new attendees will always be welcome. Participants are encouraged to bring a visual or writing prompt to each meeting as well as samples of their writing.
Warren Native to Discuss World War II Escape Saga at Library December 27
Warren native Timothy M. Gay (WAHS ’72) will be discussing his latest World War II book at a Warren Library event open to the public on Friday, December 27, at 2:00 p.m. Gay will explore the saga surrounding SAVAGE WILL: The Daring Escape of Americans Trapped Behind Nazi Lines (NAL-Random House Penguin), his second book on World War II history and fourth book overall.
SAVAGE WILL tells the true story of 30 U.S. nurses, medics, and airmen trapped behind enemy lines for two-plus months when their medical transport plane crashed in the mountains of Nazi-occupied Albania. Harbored by Partisan resistance fighters, the group braved German patrols, hostile guerillas, and brutal winter weather before finally being rescued by Allied intelligence operatives.
World War II historian Marcus Brotherton called SAVAGE WILL “’Argo’ meets Ernest Shackleton during WW II’s darkest days.” Gay unearthed the Albanian escape episode while researching ASSIGNMENT TO HELL (also NAL), his 2012 book about five great U.S. WW II correspondents. ASSIGNMENT TO HELL was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, a Bancroft Medal, and an American Book Award.
Instructor Jane Harris will lead the participants in the creation of a Valentine card or a Thank You card on Tuesday, January 21st.
This class, which meets in Slater A on the third floor of the library, will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m. Latecomers will need to catch up with the rest of the class as the project will take the entire 150 minutes of class time. There will be a $5.00 material's fee which will be due at the time of pre-registration, which is mandatory for this class. This class is open to adults, teens and tweens accompanied by an adult. Both beginners to the craft and those who have have previous experience are welcome to attend.
