The Wright Brothers

Who were these men and how was it that they achieved what they did?

Pulitzer Prize David McCullough tells the dramatic story-behind-the-story about the courageous brothers who taught the world how to fly: Wilbur and Orville Wright.

On a winter day in 1903, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, two unknown brothers from Ohio changed history. But it would take the world some time to believe what had happened: the age of flight had begun, with the first heavier-than-air, powered machine carrying a pilot.

Required reading title for this meeting: The Wright Brothers by David McCullough

Limited copies of this book will be available at the circulation desk. All are welcome to attend!

News of the World by Paulette Jiles

It is 1870 and Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd travels through northern Texas, giving live readings to paying audiences hungry for news of the world.

In Wichita Falls, he is offered $50 to deliver a young orphan to her relatives in San Antonio. Four years earlier, a band of Kiowa raiders killed Johanna’s parents and sister; sparing the little girl, they raised her as one of their own. Recently rescued by the U.S. army, the ten-year-old has once again been torn away from the only home she knows.

Their 400-mile journey south through unsettled territory and unforgiving terrain proves difficult and dangerous. Johanna has forgotten English, tries to escape at every opportunity, throws away her shoes, and refuses to act “civilized.” Yet as the miles pass, the two lonely survivors tentatively begin to trust each other, forging a bond that marks the difference between life and death in this treacherous land.

Arriving in San Antonio, the captain must hand Johanna over to an aunt and uncle she does not remember—strangers who regard her as an unwanted burden. A respectable man, Kidd is faced with a terrible choice: abandon the girl to her fate or become a kidnapper himself.

Limited copies of this book will be available at the circulation desk. All are welcome to attend!

HYGGE: Health & Happiness, Thursday, May 23th, 6 p.m.

Hygge (pronounced “hoo-gah”) comes from a Danish word meaning “to give courage, comfort, joy”.  Join Professor Claus E. Andersen from UW-Madison  as he answers the questions of what is hygge and how does it relate to happiness and health? In this talk, he will introduce the concept of hygge, explain how it relates to the Scandinavian way of life, and show what Americans can learn from it.

Professor Andersen is a native Dane who came to Wisconsin in August 2017. He has been teaching in the field of Scandinavian Studies for more than 15 years at places like the University of Minnesota, UCLA, the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Helsinki in Finland. He conducts research on Scandinavian culture, history, and literature.
