Date of Program: Monday, July 7, 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 Don’t Go Near the Water by William Brinkley on Monday, July 7th at 7:00 PM at the Pearl Street Branch Library. Don’t Go Near the Water is a 1956 episodic novel broken into ten chapters, each telling a story about the various PR officers stationed on the fictional island of Tulura, and six sequentially numbered interludes. Special guest facilitator, Michael Helechu, is a Lieutenant Colonel (ret.), for the United States Air Force. Refreshments will be served at the discussion and copies of the book are available for check-out at either library location.
