~ third Thursdays ~
George Cruikshank (1792-1878), in addition to his paintings and caricatures, illustrated over 860 books.  In fact, one British scholar has stated that Cruikshank is not only one of the classic illustrators of the period 1820-1860, but is, indeed, the greatest British book illustrator of all time.  Dick Michel, NOBS and Rowfant member, will comment briefly on Cruikshank as a book illustrator and share from his own collection numerous examples of Cruikshank’s work.  Please come, look, and see what you think!  $3 suggested donation . pdf.gif

Book Clubs
fict-austen-susan.jpgAusteniana Book Club
March 26, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
We've read the "big six" by Jane Austen, and as many spin-offs, sequels and influences.  Now we'll read some unfinished, posthumously published pieces.  Lady Susan and The Watsons are both rather short, so we'll read both for our March meeting.  In April, we'll travel metaphorically by reading Jane Austen's History of England and in May we may delve into the absurd with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (it's a real book, no kidding).  In June, it's back to unfinished works with Sanditon, which also has a "finished" version.  Well, that's enough to keep you going 'til summer.  Hope to see you at one of our meetingspdf.gif

Thursday, March 26, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
Our new book club features books that may have missed the bestsellers list, but are well worth a read.  Sarah Willis chooses Montana 1948 by Larry Watson as our next read. “From the summer of my twelfth year I carry a series of images more vivid and lasting than any others of my boyhood and indelible beyond all attempts the years make to erase or fade them… “ So begins David Hayden’s story of what happened in Montana in 1948. The events of that cataclysmic summer permanently alter twelve-year-old David’s understanding of his family: his father, a small-town sheriff; his remarkably strong mother; David’s uncle Frank, a war hero and respected doctor; and the Haydens’ Sioux housekeeper, Marie Little Soldier, whose revelations turn the family’s life upside down as she relates how Frank has been molesting his female Indian patients. As their story unravels around David, he learns that truth is not what one believes it to be, that power is abused, and that sometimes one has to choose between family loyalty and justice.  pdf.gif
