Hilton Branch – For our Summer Reading book group for adults, we’ll be discussing erotica by women. We’re starting off with the immensely popular Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James. Registration is not needed. Open to all women 18 and older.
“when we begin to live…in touch with the erotic within ourselves, and allow that power to inform and illuminate our actions upon the world around us, then we begin to be responsible to ourselves in the deepest sense.” Audre Lorde, Uses of the Erotic.
Join L’Aura Hladik (“The Ghostchick”), founder and director of the NJ Ghost Hunters’ Society, the largest paranormal investigating organization in New Jersey, as she explains how we can see and hear actual ghosts using everyday technology. Main Library – Grades 6 & up.
Hilton Branch - Our Summer Book Club continues with Erica Jong’s groundbreaking Fear of Flying. This funny and sad novel was first published in 1973. Would it be considered shocking today? Are there any insights that still hold true? Have women grown with it or have we moved beyond it?
Join us for what promises to be a spirited discussion. Facilitated by Ina Rimpau, head of Hilton Branch library. Free and open to adults 18 and older.
We all love stories! Check out this terrific graphic from the New York Times.
