COVER4bookmarkNext time you visit us please consider to purchase your ORDER for a copy of the book “WHISTLE-STOP POEMS” (2nd edition) by Harrington Williams, published by the Oscar Grady Public Library.

Called “The Poet of Saukville”, Harrington Williams lived a short but full life, from being a sailor in Southeast Asia, a sports writer for The Ozaukee Press, to a writer of poems that show the local color of bygone times in a very sensible and animated way.

Adult Book Discussion_ Monday, October 17th, 6:30 p.m.

girls-of-atomic-cityThe Girls of Atomic City

by Denise Kiernan

Drawing on the voices of the women who lived it—women who are now in their eighties and nineties— The Girls of Atomic City rescues a remarkable, forgotten chapter of American history from obscurity. Denise Kiernan captures the spirit of the times through these women: their pluck, their desire to contribute, and their enduring courage. Combining the grand-scale human drama of The Worst Hard Time with the intimate biography and often troubling science of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, The Girls of Atomic City is a lasting and important addition to our country’s history.

Limited copies of this book will be available at the circulation desk. All are welcome to attend! Can’t make it to the discussion? Sign up at the circulation desk for our online book club!
