 4th Thursdays 6:30 pm

June 1st: After the First Death by Robert Cormier;  Young Adult novel

after16-year-old Miro had instructions to kill the bus driver immediately.

They would then take the busload of children to the bridge and begin the standoff. Artkin was Miro’s mentor; the mastermind behind this act of terrorism that would get the world’s attention. But Artkin had told Miro that the bus driver would be an old man.

16-year old Kate sometimes substituted for her uncle and drove his bus when he was ill. She even got a special license to do so, and she’d always liked kids. She wondered what was going on when the van in front of her stopped, but when the man and the boy with guns forced their way onto the bus, she knew her worst nightmare was beginning.


June 29th: The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and their Quest for Gold at the 1036 Berlin Olympics by Daniel J. Brown

The inspiration for the PBS documentary “The Boys of ‘36”

Boys in boatFor readers of Unbroken, out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how 9 working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics what true grit really meant.

The team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s 8-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler. The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.
