"Astonishing Tales" with Author Matt Geiger

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Carnegie-Stout Public Library
Aigler Auditorium
Wisconsin Author Matt Geiger returns to Carnegie-Stout with his new collection of stories and essays called "Astonishing Tales: Your Astonishment May Vary."

In his new collection of stories and essays, acclaimed author and humorist Matt Geiger seeks to de-familiarize us from the world, from the smallest detail to the most cosmic mythology, in order to see it all as if for the first time. Turning his philosopher's vision to his own abundant Neanderthal DNA, parenting, competitive axe throwing, old age, and much more, he sets out in search of comic profundity. With a nod to the limits of human knowledge and understanding, particularly his own, he draws from the wisdom of an 83-year-old pin-up legend, Peter the Great, Santa Claus, modern boxers, Medieval monks, and of course small children. Blending whimsy and gravitas, he unveils beauty, joy, and happiness in a seemingly broken world.

This event is free and open to adults 18 and over. No registration is required.

Mystery & Mayhem Book Club

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Carnegie-Stout Public Library
American Trust Program Room
Mystery & Mayhem is a new adult book club at Carnegie-Stout that explores the different types of Mystery books. From cozy to classic mystery, this book club will read a variety of mystery titles and sub-genres. No registration is required. Books will be available for checkout at the circulation desk on first floor about one month before the book club meets. This book club is for adults 18+.

The books are available to checkout now at the circulation desk on first floor.

February's book is "Bluebird, Bluebird" by Attica Locke. From the book: "When it comes to law and order, East Texas plays by its own rules--a fact that Darren Mathews, a black Texas Ranger, knows all too well. Deeply ambivalent about growing up black in the lone star state, he was the first in his family to get as far away from Texas as he could. Until duty called him home.

When his allegiance to his roots puts his job in jeopardy, he travels up Highway 59 to the small town of Lark, where two murders--a black lawyer from Chicago and a local white woman--have stirred up a hornet's nest of resentment. Darren must solve the crimes--and save himself in the process--before Lark's long-simmering racial fault lines erupt.

A rural noir suffused with the unique music, color, and nuance of East Texas, Bluebird, Bluebird is an exhilarating, timely novel about the collision of race and justice in America."

Adult Book Discussion - The Underground Railroad

6:30 PM - 7:45 PM
Carnegie-Stout Public Library
American Trust Program Room
Carnegie-Stout Public Library's bi-monthly book discussion group for adults will meet at 6:30 p.m. in the 1st Floor Program Room on Tuesday, March 12, 2019. The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead will be discussed.

Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Life is hell for all the slaves, but especially bad for Cora; an outcast even among her fellow Africans. She is coming into womanhood, where even greater pain awaits. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Matters do not go as planned, Cora kills a young white boy who tries to capture her. Though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted.

In Whitehead's ingenious conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor, engineers and conductors operate a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. Cora and Caesar's first stop is South Carolina, in a city that initially seems like a haven. But the city's placid surface masks an insidious scheme designed for its black denizens. Even worse: Ridgeway, the relentless slave catcher is close on their heels. Forced to flee again, Cora embarks on a harrowing flight, state by state, seeking true freedom.

Books are available for check-out at the circulation desk.
