Book Discussion: Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult

Cover Art for Leaving Time by Jodi PicoultJoin us on Monday, August 21 at 6:30 pm for a discussion of Leaving Time: A Novel by Jodi Picoult. Available in Regular Print, Large Print, Audiobook on CD, eBook, and eAudio. 

Alice Metcalf was a devoted mother, loving wife, and an accomplished scientist who studied grief among elephants. Yet it has been a decade since she disappeared under mysterious circumstances, leaving behind her small daughter, husband, and the animals to which she devoted her life. All signs point to abandonment . . . or worse. Still Jenna--now thirteen years old and truly orphaned by a father maddened by grief--steadfastly refuses to believe in her mother's desertion. Deeply moving and suspenseful, Leaving Time is a radiant exploration of the enduring love between mothers and daughters. Free. Ages 18+. No registration required. Call 281-471-4022 to reserve a copy.

Come to our program on The History of the Moon this Saturday, July 22 at 10:30 am to help celebrate that historic event! Walter Kiefer, a scientist with the Lunar and Planetary Institute, will tell us—in layman’s terms—what we learned about the moon’s history through the Apollo program. He will also tell us about more recent NASA missions to the moon. This program is open to all ages, though the subject matter will appeal more to older elementary kids through 110-year olds.
