Book CoverJoin us for a discussion of the classic H.G. Wells novel The Invisible Man on Monday, September 26th at 2:00 PM. On the surface, this novel seems like your typical Science Fiction adventure story. But, we will discuss what makes it classic. Why has it held the test of time? And what makes the characters and the notion of invisibility an everlasting phenomenon? The notion graces the pages of Harry Potter even today! Share your thoughts at Book Club! We hope to see you there.

I grabbed a backpack and headed to Washington, DC, with one hope in mind; a behind the scenes tour of the Library of Congress. That was exactly what I got! Chills came over me as I walked up the stairs to this great library.
