    ONLINE ONLY: The Library Book Club at La Pine

    12:00 PM - Tuesday -

    Discuss "Little Fires Everywhere" by Ng, Celeste online using Zoom.

    Join us online by copy and pasting the following link: https://zoom.us/j/95041249353About the Book:
    In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned - from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules. Enter Mia Warren - an enigmatic artist and single mother - who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community. When old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town--and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides. Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs.*zm*

    Discuss "The Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo" by Taylor Jenkins Reid via Zoom.

    Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

    Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

    Summoned to Evelyn's luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the '80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn's story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique's own in tragic and irreversible ways.

    Discuss 99 Nights in Logar by Jamil Jan Kochai.

    Click the link above or join at https://zoom.us/j/93316346029 or with Meeting ID 933 1634 6029

    "A coming-of-age story about one boy's journey across contemporary Afghanistan to find and bring home the family dog, blending the grit and immediacy of voice-driven fiction like We Need New Names with the mythmaking of One Thousand and One Nights. Twelve-year-old Marwand's memories from his previous visit to Afghanistan six years ago center on his contentious relationship with Budabash, the terrifying but beloved dog who guards his extended family's compound in Logar. Eager to find an ally in this place that's meant to be "home," Marwand approaches Budabash the way he would any dog on his American suburban block--and the results are disastrous: Marwand loses a finger and Budabash escapes. The resulting search for the family dog is an expertly told adventure, a ninety-nine-night quest that sends Marwand and his cousins across the landscape of Logar. Moving between celebrations and tragedies, deeply humorous and surprisingly tender, 99 Nights in Logar is a vibrant exploration of the power of stories--the ones we tell each other, and the ones we find ourselves in"-- Provided by publisher.

    Sisters: In Person Event: Ask Emily - A Writing & Fortune Telling Salon

    10:00 AM - Saturday - Library South Patio * Registration Required

    This is a live, in-person, outdoor event. Masks are required. Physical distancing will be enforced.

    Explore the generative aspects of poetry and fortune-telling at this salon and poetry reading.

    This event is part of a mini pop-up book tour featuring Emily Carr’s Tarot Romance and fourth poetry collection, Name Your Bird Without A Gun (Spork Press, 2020). Equal parts poetry reading, writing workshop, and fortune-telling salon, this event is designed to invite your imaginations to spark off each other’s, to jolt you into poems you didn’t know you had inside you, and to introduce you to the generative intersections of creativity and fortune-telling. Each aspect of the event will be curated with your specific, personal, and important experience in mind.

    When you RSVP, you will be invited to share a question - personal, professional, work-related, family-related, romance-related - to ask Emily. Emily will use these questions to choreograph the poetry reading, interactive writing activities, and fortune-telling.

    This salon is open to writers of all levels and genres, including folks who don’t yet (know how to) self-identify as writers. Come prepared to experience your creativity as a catalyst for radical acts of connection - even and especially in these disconnecting times! Bring open minds, open ears, and open hearts - along with something to write with and on - and leave with inspiration for your creative endeavors, whether those happen on or off the page.

    Come for the magic and stay for the poetry!

    Emily Carr is a Tarot storyteller, ransom artist, divorce poet, and ecofeminist teacher. After she got an MFA in poetry from the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, she took a doctorate in ecopoetics at the University of Calgary. These days, she's Assistant Professor of Creative Writing at New College of Florida. Her McSweeney's collection, whosoever has let a minotaur enter them, or a sonnet-,, inspired a beer of the same name, brewed at the Ale Apothecary in Bend, Oregon. Emily's Tarot romance, Name Your Bird Without A Gun, is now available from Spork. Emily has published essays on storytelling and the Tarot in American Poetry Review (September/October 2019) and the Writer's Chronicle (Spring 2020).

    ONLINE ONLY: Corinne Sharlet Original Music

    4:00 PM - Friday -

    A link to view this recording will be available here on Friday, July 2 at 4:00 p.m.

    Listen to the warm American sound of Corinne Sharlet.

    With bone-deep lyrics and a magnetic, haunting voice, Portland based singer/songwriter, Corinne Sharlet, crafts a warm Americana sound. Emotive and alluring, Corinne’s music captures the imagination like the high deserts of Central Oregon where she was raised. Drawing comparisons to Joni Mitchell, Corinne writes unusual melodies and chord progressions that give her version of folk music new life. Corinne’s set features songs from her forthcoming debut album, A Lovely Future, set to be released at the end of September.

    Singer/songwriter, Corinne Sharlet grew up in Bend, performing in local community theater and writing songs as she wandered around the High Desert. Corinne’s music is ethereal yet grounded in richness, capturing the sound of the landscape of Central Oregon. Corinne’s songwriting is introspective and often delves into the depths of the human psyche. Based on her lyrical themes, it comes as no surprise that Corinne also works as a psychotherapist, trained in pioneering voice work called Voice Movement Therapy. Inspired by voice teacher, Alfred Wolfsohn’s discoveries about how to use singing to help people heal from PTSD after WWI, Voice Movement therapy teaches people how to explore the depths of their own voice to heal from trauma and other mental health struggles.
