Pearl Street Centennial Celebration – Book Discussions through the Decades

Date of Program:  Monday, June 2, 2014 at 7:00 PM at the Pearl Street Branch Library

2014 marks The Pearl Street Branch Library’s 100th Anniversary!  Please join us in our year long Pearl Street Branch Centennial Celebration.

The thought provoking series, “Book Discussions through the Decades,” continues with Strange Fruit by Lillian Smith on Monday, June 2nd at 7:00 PM at the Pearl Street Branch Library.  Strange Fruit is a 1944 best-selling novel debut by American author, Lillian Smith.  The story deals with the then forbidden and controversial theme of interracial romance.  Special guest facilitator, Sarah Richard, holds Masters Degrees in Education, English, and Human Rights.  She is a High School English Teacher in New York City.  Refreshments will be served at the discussion and copies of the book are available for check-out at either library location.

Additionally, the Centennial Anniversary Committee has planned numerous events for the exciting year ahead, among them: a marble tournament, “meet Andrew Carnegie”-with Richard Clark, an outdoor movie, a time capsule, special displays, and much more!  Be on the lookout for event listings via email, press, library signage, and our library web page.
