There's More Than One Way to Tell a Story...

Movie & PopcornEver love a book, but can’t stand the movie?  Or maybe it’s the other way around?  Then come to the Baldwin Boettcher Library for a new type of book club for teens and tweens!  Starting in February, we will host a new type of book club for teens and tweens, where we will watch a movie, and discuss the movie and the book that inspired it.  Is one better than the other?  Why?  Come to the Baldwin Boettcher Library to find out!

Baldwin Boettcher Branch -- Evening Book Club

Narrative of the Life of Frederick DouglassJoin us for this Black History Month book club reading.  Title to be discussed:  Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, by Frederick Douglass.  Time of meeting:  Monday, February 6, 2012, at 6:30 PM.  Summary:  "I was born in Tuckahoe.  I have no accurate knowledge of my age, never having seen any authentic record containing it.  By far the larger part of the slaves know as little of their ages as horses know of theirs, and it is the wish of most masters within my knowledge to keep their slaves thus ignorant."  So begins the now-classic personal account of Frederick Douglass (1818-1895), who was born into slavery in Maryland and who became, after his escape to Massachusetts in 1838, an ardent abolitionist and campaigner for women's rights.
