WORD OF THE WEEK Iceblink: A reflection in the clouds caused by light hitting a field of ice.

Our monthly movie night is that same week, on Thursday the 14th at 5:30 PM. That Saturday the 16th join us for a Who-bilation – with snacks, stories, and a visit from the Grinch himself, all starting at 2 PM. Finally, join our family book club on the 21st at 5 PM. We’ll be reading Amulet: The Stonekeeper. For adults, we have computer help on the 2nd, 5th, and 16th, as well as social hour on the 13th and a craft on the afternoon of the 14th.

JUST ARRIVED Although a little late for Thanksgiving, you can still check out The Mayflower to learn more about some of America’s early European settlers. Scalia Speaks and When the World Seemed New look back at more recent history – the former through the eyes of the late Supreme Court Justice and the latter by recalling the years surrounding the fall of the Berlin Wall. Stretching just a little further back, The Gifted Generation traces the actions and evolution of the United States government in the post-World-War-II years. Meanwhile, Dan Rather’s latest, What Unites Us, examines what it means to be an American and the ways in which we express patriotism. Much further back in history, The Storm Before the Storm takes a new look at the incredible success of the Roman Empire and how its fall ultimately started from within.
