Crosby Book Club Meets Friday, February 16 at 2 pm

Crosby Book Club will meet on Friday, February 16 at 2 pm.  Join us in the meeting room as we celebrate African American History Month by discussing Between the World and Me, by Ta-Nehisi Coates.  Written as a letter from father to son, Between the World and Me is a brutally honest look at racism in America, past and present.  According to one reviewer, "...on occasion memoir transcends itself, and is able to speak to something much larger than one person's life with an authority that nothing else can."  Coates' book is the 2015 Nonfiction National Book Award Winner.

Crosby Book Club Meeting Friday, December 15 at 2 pm

Crosby Book Club will meet Friday, December 15 at 2 pm to discuss The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire That Saved America, by Timothy Egan.  The Big Burn, or the Great Fire of 1910, is believed to be the largest single fire in recorded U S history, destroying more than 3 million acres in Idaho, Montana, and Washington.  In addition to the story of the fire, Egan chronicles President Theodore Roosevelt's struggle to protect the nation's shrinking wilderness for future generations, and the early years of the U S Forestry Service.  The Big Burn is a historical account whose lessons are applicable to contemporary political issues.

New members are welcome.  Copies of the book are available for check out at the front desk.
