Book Club reads “The Speckled People” | 20/11/2020 | 2:30 pm-4:00 pm

Book Club reads "The Speckled People"

The June read for the book club is “The Speckled People” by Hugo Hamilton.

The childhood world of Hugo Hamilton, born and brought up in Dublin, is a confusing place. His father, a sometimes brutal Irish nationalist, demands his children speak Gaelic, while his mother a softly spoken German immigrant, marked by the Nazi past, speaks to them in German. He personally prefers to speak English. English is, after all, what the other children in Dublin speak. English is what they use when they hunt him down in the streets and dub him Eichmann, as they bring him to trial and sentence him to death at a mock seaside court.

Out of this fear and guilt and often comical cultural entanglements, he tries to understand the differences between Irish history and German history and turn the twisted logic of what he is told into truth. It is a journey that ends in liberation, but not before he uncovers the long-buried secrets that lie at the bottom of his parents wardrobe.

Walk and Talk | 23/11/2020 | 2:00 pm-6:00 pm

Walk and Talk

Time to get outside! Get on those hiking boots and take some time to revel in the great outdoors! The idea is to organize an easy walk once a month – approximately 10 km, 4 hours, in the afternoon – in order to discover or re-discover the beautiful hiking paths of the Maine-et-Loire. Come along with good walking shoes, protection against rain, cold or heat according to the season… a bottle of water and a little “en-cas” to keep you going! Maximum group is 20 so be sure to sign up!

Open to library members only. Sign up by sending your name, email address and phone number (preferably cell phone) to the group leader by clicking here. You will be sent full details for the upcoming walk.

Textile Arts & Crafts

If you would like to do textile arts while speaking in English, this activity is for you!

Participants will create textile pieces of their choice using any technique that suits them: embroidery, patchwork, quilting, weaving, collages…

We created our first joint project in 2019. The various pieces that were designed, inspired by Neil Gaiman’s quote: ‘A book is a dream that you hold in your hand’, are exhibited at the library.

Our second project is underway. Our goal is to create around 30 squares. It will also be an opportunity for each person to learn new techniques. Join us and contribute to this unique project!

Bring your own materials and meet us at the library on Thursday afternoons from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the following dates: October 1, November 5, December 3, 2020. Open to library members. Please sign up at the front desk, when possible.
