Happy Hour Book Club Virtual Meets to Discuss The Dutch House by Ann Patchett

6:45pm - 7:55pm

At the end of the Second World War, Cyril Conroy combines luck and a single canny investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to enormous wealth. His first order of business is to buy the Dutch House, a lavish estate in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves. Cyril's son Danny and his older sister Maeve are exiled from the house where they grew up by their stepmother. The two wealthy siblings are thrown back into the poverty their parents had escaped from and find that all they have to count on is one another.

Silk Scarf Painting

We will discuss colors, a variety of silk painting techniques and Gariné will be demonstrating painting a scarf with step by step instructions for a “watercolor style” process. At the end of the workshop you will go home with a gorgeous, wearable creation, just allow it to dry overnight. Once the scarf is dry, it can be ironed on the silk setting to permanently set the colors.  Please register on our website or by calling the circulation desk.

This program will involve the audience in a variety of cultural traditions right here on the library lawn!  It will include ghost ballads & sea chanteys, farming songs, Native American stories, folk tales and family tales.  There will be plenty of sing-alongs, and even a short lesson in how to play music with spoons from a kitchen drawer.
