Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

News of the worldTitle to be discussed: News of the world by Paulette Jiles.  Date of meeting: October 10, 6:30 p.m.  Summary: "In the wake of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels through northern Texas, giving live readings from newspapers to paying audiences hungry for news of the world. In Wichita Falls, he is offered a $50 gold piece to deliver a young orphan to her relatives in San Antonio. Four years earlier, a band of Kiowa raiders killed Johanna's parents and sister; sparing the little girl, they raised her as one of their own. Recently rescued by the U.S. army, the ten-year-old has once again been torn away from the only home she knows. Their 400-mile journey south through unsettled territory and unforgiving terrain proves difficult and at times dangerous. Johanna has forgotten the English language, tries to escape at every opportunity, throws away her shoes, and refuses to act "civilized." Yet as the miles pass, the two lonely survivors tentatively begin to trust each other, forming a bond that marks the difference between life and death in this treacherous land. Arriving in San Antonio, the captain must hand Johanna over to an aunt and uncle she does not remember -- strangers who regard her as an unwanted burden. A respectable man, Captain Kidd is faced with a terrible choice: abandon the girl to her fate or become -- in the eyes of the law -- a kidnapper himself."

Program: Myths of Grief

myths of griefGrief is a complex emotion experienced differently by each person and in every situation. When we are in the midst of grief, we know that many of the things we are doing are not actually helping us to recover.

At an upcoming library program, Myths of Grief, we will discuss some common misconceptions about how we grieve, and what steps each person can take to help them recover. Lance Decker, a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist who became certified after his family experienced their own loss, will be leading the session.

This program will be presented on Saturday, September 9th at 3:00 pm. Please join us in the first floor Meeting Room (L129) for an informative, free presentation.

For more information, call the library at 832-559-4200.
