    Explore the history of psilocybin and its ancient Mesoamerican origins.

    This is a live webinar. Receive the Zoom link by using the “Register Here for Online Access” link above.

    In this offering, we will explore the historic, traditional and cultural uses of Los Niños Santos (“the sainted children”), the mushrooms we know as psilocybin. There is documented use of this medicine by the Mayans going back 5,000 years; another ancient, potent lineage is still practiced by the Mazotec peoples of Oaxaca, Mexico. Diving into some of these practices, we will shine a light on the complicated legacy of Mazotec curandera Maria Sabina.

    Discuss "Harlem Shuffle" by Colson Whitehead.Take part in a mind-expanding discussion of this month's read. Learn about the author and discuss their writing in this Librarian lead discussion. Join us in person at the Redmond Library.

    Two-time Pulitzer winner Whitehead (The Underground Railroad; The Nickel Boys) has fun and shows off his literary dexterity with this rollicking crime novel set in 1960s Harlem. Ray Carney, a self-made Black man, sells new and used furniture at affordable prices (with generous payment plans) in a store that bears his name on historic 125th Street. He's caught between his haughty in-laws who are unhappy that their daughter lives in a dingy apartment near the train, and his wayward cousin Freddie, the devil on Ray's shoulder since they were kids. The "slightly bent" storekeeper sometimes fences stolen jewelry too. Ray gets talked into a lucrative heist with seedy coconspirators, which leads to more dangerous capers, until he is forced to balance his loyalty to his business and his family with his loyalty to Freddie.

    Discuss Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton.
    Join via Zoom:https://us06web.zoom.us/j/83960512191

    When it comes to the trials and triumphs of becoming a grown up, journalist and former Sunday Times dating columnist Dolly Alderton has seen and tried it all. In this book, she vividly recounts falling in love, wrestling with self-sabotage, finding a job, throwing a socially disastrous Rod-Stewart themed house party, getting drunk, getting dumped, realizing that Ivan from the corner shop is the only man you've ever been able to rely on, and finding that that your mates are always there at the end of every messy night out. It's a book about bad dates, good friends and above all else about recognizing that you and you alone are enough. *zm*
