"On the morning of April 28, 1986, a fire alarm sounded in the Los Angeles Public Library. The fire was disastrous: it reached two thousand degrees and burned for more than seven hours. By the time it was extinguished, it had consumed four hundred thousand books and damaged seven hundred thousand more. Investigators descended on the scene, but more than thirty years later, the mystery remains: Did someone purposefully set fire to the library—and if so, who?
Weaving her lifelong love of books and reading into an investigation of the fire, award-winning New Yorker reporter and New York Times bestselling author Susan Orlean delivers a “delightful…reflection on the past, present, and future of libraries in America” (New York magazine) that manages to tell the broader story of libraries and librarians in a..

This activity is funded in part by the MICHIGAN COUNCIL FOR ARTS AND CULTURAL AFFAIRS and the MICHIGAN HUMANITIES COUNCIL.
Every year in December the star cluster of the Pleiades mounts to its highest place in the sky, inaugurating the rhythm of days that lead to the new year, as calculated by indigenous people of the Great Lakes region. At the same time, the Geminid Meteor Shower reaches its peak, followed by the falling stars of the great bears, the Ursids, at Winter Solstice.
While all of this happens overhead every December, this year the star scene will include the beautiful apparition of Venus, Saturn, and the Moon in the evening sky.
Join Star Lore Historian Mary Stewart Adams at Georgetown Township Library for all the best star stories of the season, for how they informed the ceremonies of Solstice in former cultures, and for lively, interactive guidance around the night sky.
Mary Stewart Adams led the team that established...

"Bestselling romance author Jacob Churcher hasn't been home for almost twenty years — not since his mentally ill mother kicked him out of the house when he was just sixteen. When a lawyer calls, days before Christmas, to inform him that his estranged mother has passed away and left her house to him, Jacob returns not just to settle the estate but to try and reconcile with the past and the pain and abuse he experienced as a child. Also, maybe cleaning out her house will be slightly less depressing than spending the holidays alone, watching re-runs of Christmas classics.
But as it turns out, the house holds more than just difficult memories, Jacob’s...
