Bloomsday Book Club
JJThursday, January 25, 6pm
It's time!  Join us for a book club devoted to the last novel written by James Joyce, the legendary Finnegans Wake.  Yes, we know you're a bit daunted by a book best read next to an unabridged dictionary, but we also know you've always wanted to read one of the most renowned and respected works in the English language.  We'll tackle it slowly, some ten pages at a time, and discuss it at length at monthly meetings.  This first meeting will introduce the book, its place in literary history, and the tools needed for understanding it.  Yes, we'll have books, both Joyce's and reading guides, as well as a list of helpful interactive websites.  Want to know more?  Join us.

Stump the BooksellerV51: Valerie Anne and Alligator Eugene
I remember a series of books from the 1960s that involved a French girl named Valerie anne who travels somewhere and possibly is shipwrecked, or somehow winds up in New York. She has a friend named Eugene who is an alligator. The books were almost like board books but not quite. Perhaps there was 5 or 6 books in a series. They were brightly colored.
