    12:00 PM - Thursday - Youth Room

    Join us for a book party to celebrate a year of reading with The Redmond Library Book Club.

    There is an optional read this month that will take up about half of the book club times. Discuss "The Sentence" by Erdrich, Louise.

    Take part in a mind-expanding discussion of this month's read. Learn about the author and discuss their writing in this Librarian lead discussion.

    "In her stunning and timely new novel, Pulitzer Prize and National Book award-winning author Louise Erdrich creates a wickedly funny ghost story: a tale of passion, of a complex marriage, and of a womans relentless errors. Louise Erdrichs latest novel, The Sentence, asks what we owe to the living, to the dead, to the reader, and to the book. A small independent bookstore in Minneapolis is haunted from November 2019 to November 2020 by the stores most annoying customer. Flora dies on All Souls Day, but she simply wont leave the store. Tookie, who has landed a job selling books after years of incarceration that she survived by reading zwith murderous attention,y must solve the mystery of this haunting while at the same time trying to understand all that occurs in Minneapolis during a year of grief, astonishment, isolation, and furious reckoning. The Sentence begins on All Souls Day 2019 and ends on All Souls Day 2020. Its mystery and proliferating ghost stories during this one year propel a narrative as rich, emotional, and profound as anything Loui9se Erdrich has written."

    Discuss The River You Touch Making A Life on Moving Water by Chris Dombrowski. Join via Zoom: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/83993645150

    Dombrowski begins the highly anticipated The River You Touch with a question as timely as it is profound: "What does a meaningful, mindful, sustainable inhabitance on this small planet look like in the Anthropocene?" He answers this fundamental question of our time initially by listening lovingly to rivers and the land they pulse through in his adopted home of Montana. Transplants from the post-industrial Midwest, he and his partner, Mary, assemble a life based precariously on her income as a schoolteacher, his as a poet and fly-fishing guide. *zm*

    Local singer-songwriter duo blend their voices for the holidays.

    This is an in-person program. Wearing a face covering is optional at all library events.

    The Uncharted Project music duo is the integration of two contrasting solo artists whose love of music and family forged this unique connection into a band.

    As niece & uncle, Cassia Dawn and John Fortune are a blend of heart and soul. You'll hear John's Caribbean roots come out in the rhythms of his finger-plucking style, combining bluesy, jazzy chords to make up his signature soulful sound. Cassia's love for connecting with her audience is felt through her ardent vocals - blending hopeful lyrics with a folksy, raw sound that has a touch of blues.
