Open Book - The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven

Book cover.

Tuesday, September 30, 2014, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Oglethorpe County Library's Book Club, Open Book, will be meeting Tuesday, September 30, 2014 at 11:30am to discuss The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven by Sherman Alexie. This is a darkly comic short story collection by a Spokane/Coeur d'Alene Indian who has brilliantly woven memory, fantasy, and stark realism to paint a complex ironic portrait of life in and around the Spoke Indian Reservation. Alexie depicts the distances between Indians and whites, reservation Indians and urban Indians, men and women, and most poetically between modern Indians and the traditions of the past in these 22 interlinking tales. Copies of the book are available for check out from the circulation with a valid Pines library card. Registration is not required, but if you would like additional information you may call the library at 706-743-8817.

Wednesday, September 24, 2014, 10:30 - 11:30 a.m.

We welcome all toddlers and preschool-aged children to attend every Wednesday from 10:30 to 11:30. During this hour we enjoy reading books, singing silly songs, stretching and dancing to fun rhymes and music, playing exciting learning games, and making simple crafts. It's a wonderful time to meet new friends and learn about all the great books the library has to offer. Daycare, preschool, and home school groups are always welcome!

Let's get ready for autumn with this week's stories!
