Wednesday Brown Bag Lunch: Sandra Parks Screens Stetson Kennedy Documentary

Friends of the Main Library St. AugustineWednesday, May 28 @ 12:30pm
Sandra Parks, owner of Anastasia Books and former city commissioner of St. Augustine, will present a documentary film narrated by her late husband, Stetson Kennedy. The film chronicles the Federal Writers' Project created by President Roosevelt starting in 1937 at the beginning of World War II. Two Florida writers, Stetson Kennedy and Zora Neale Hurston, traveled through the state, collecting oral histories of the people of Florida from different living and economic backgrounds. Their investigative writings preserve a glimpse of a Florida that is no longer in existence.

The program is free of charge and open to the public. Bring your lunch and enjoy the program as well as light refreshments provided by the Friends of the Main Library St. Augustine. For more information contact Friends President, Toni Siriani at Toni825@hotmail.com or call the library at 827-6940.

Literary Lions Book Club: The Dinner by Herman Koch

SatuThe Dinnerrday, May 10 @ 10:30am
Two couples meet for dinner at a fashionable restaurant in Amsterdam. Behind their polite conversation, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened. Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families. As the dinner reaches its culinary climax, the conversation finally touches on their children. As civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple show just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love. Reserve it.
