Next Chapter Book Club offers community-based book clubs for adolescents and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Our members (including some who cannot read) love the way books transport them to different worlds where they meet interesting characters and learn about exciting new things.

Recommended for ages: 14 +. Membership is limited to 10 participants and a one-time registration is required by e-mailing or calling Erin Zolotukhin-Ridgway at: erin.zolotukhin-ridgway@ci.stpaul.mn.us, 651-266-7000, #5 (ask for Erin).

GLCL Book Club

10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
Peace Like A River Book Cover
George Latimer Central Library
Andy Boss Community Room (4th floor)

Please join us for the George Latimer Central Library Book Club on the second Thursday of every month. This month we will be reading Leif Enger's Peace Like a River. The quiet 1960s midwestern life of the Land family--father Jeremiah, and children, Reuben, Davy and Swede--is upended when Davy kills two teenage boys who have come to harm the family. On the morning of his sentencing, Davy escapes from his cell and the Lands set out in search of him. Their search is at once a heroic quest, a tragedy, a love story, and a haunting meditation on the possibility of magic in the everyday world.

GLCL History Book Club

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
George Latimer Central Library
Otto Bremer Community Room (1st floor)

Discuss: Five Presidents: My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford by Clint Hill: Secret Service agent Clint Hill brings history intimately and vividly to life as he reflects on his seventeen years protecting the most powerful office in the nation. Hill walked alongside Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard M. Nixon, and Gerald R. Ford, seeing them through a long, tumultuous era—the Cold War; the Cuban Missile Crisis; the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy; the Vietnam War; Watergate; and the resignations of Spiro Agnew and Richard M. Nixon.

Some of his stunning, never-before-revealed anecdotes include:
-Eisenhower’s reaction at Russian Prime Minister Khrushchev’s refusal to talk following the U-2 incident
-The torture of watching himself in the Zapruder film in a Secret Service training
-Johnson’s virtual imprisonment in the White House during violent anti-Vietnam protests
-His decision to place White House files under protection after a midnight phone call about Watergate
-The challenges of protecting Ford after he pardoned Nixon

With a unique insider’s perspective, Hill sheds new light on the character and personality of these five presidents, revealing their humanity in the face of grave decisions.
