Book Summary: “At the turn of the twentieth century, in a rural stretch of the Pacific Northwest, a reclusive orchardist, William Talmadge, tends to apples and apricots as if they were loved ones. A gentle man, he’s found solace in the sweetness of the fruit he grows and the quiet, beating heart of the land he cultivates. One day, two teenage girls appear and steal his fruit from the market; they later return to the outskirts of his orchard to see the man who gave them no chase. Feral, scared, and very pregnant, the girls take up on Talmadge’s land and indulge in his deep reservoir of compassion. Just as the girls begin to trust him, men arrive in the orchard with guns, and the shattering tragedy that follows will set Talmadge on an irrevocable course not only to save and protect but also to reconcile the ghosts of his own troubled past. Transcribing America as it once was before railways and roads connected its corners, Amanda Coplin weaves a tapestry of solitary souls who come together in the wake of unspeakable cruelty and misfortune.”

Indie Film Series: “Broken”
Nov 18 @ 6:30 pm

The Natrona County Public Library’s Independent Film Series will feature “Broken” Tuesday, November 18 at 6:30 p.m. in the Crawford Room.  Summary: “11 year-old Skunk lives a carefree life with her loving father (Tim Roth), brother and nanny.  One day, Skunk witnesses her angry neighbor, Mr. Oswald, savagely beat Rick, a young man who lives across the street.  Skunk is unwittingly drawn into her neighbors’ unfolding melodrama of violence, sex, and life-shattering illness.  As Skunk’s innocence begins to vanish, her home, neighborhood and school all become treacherous environments where the happy certainties of childhood give way to fear-filled doubt.  Skunk is drawn into an ethereal chaos from which she may only return through the intense love of those closest to her.”

The screening will be followed by a discussion and refreshments provided by the Friends of the Library.  All films shown during the Independent Film Series are unrated and may be unsuitable for children.  Call 577-READ (7323) ext. 2 for more information.

The Natrona County Genealogical Society will present “Grow Your Tree” genealogy workshops at 2 p.m. Thursday, November 13 and at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, November 19.  Without a plan, it is easy to become scattered in your genealogy research, feel stuck, or just not know where to go next.

Annie Vercimak of the Natrona County Genealogical Society (NCGS) will give guidance on organizing your genealogy work and planning your next steps.  This hands-on class is designed for beginners but open to attendees at all levels of genealogical research. We recommend bringing whatever research you have conducted so far, as well as a USB drive to save your work. Both classes are free and open to the public, no registration necessary. Call 577-READ (7323) for more information.
