Today begins a reading incentive program for kids, grades K-5, sponsored by the Mechanics Lodge of Masons. Read a book, fill out an entry ticket at the library, and on June 16th, at our children's concert event, the Masons will draw two tickets from each grade, and give away a free bike and helmet to a girl and boy from that grade. The more you read, the more chances to win!

January 16: Dreams of Trespass: Tales of a Harem Girlhood by Fatima Mernissi
February 20: In the Country of Men: A Novel by Hisham Matar

The most recognized narratives of the Islamic world often come to Westerners in the daily news. The drama of conflict, chaos, and war abruptly arrives in the morning newscast or paper along with the toast and coffee. But the “news” gives us scant details about how people live their lives in Islamabad, Fez, Cairo, or Tehran. The human experience—loves, losses, births, deaths—is the currency of the novel, the memoir, the personal history.
