Press release submitted by Bettendorf Library|
On Wednesday, January 16, at 1:00 P.M. in the Bettendorf Public Library, there will be a discussion of "Caleb's Crossing" by Geraldine Brooks led by Cecilia Magalhães. Brooks, who spoke recently at a Women's Connection of the Quad-Cities dinner, was inspired by the true story of the first Native American to graduate from Harvard College in the 1600s. At 7:00 p.m. librarian Hedy Hustedde will lead a discussion of the novel "In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin" by Erik Larson. Both books are available for loan at the previous month's discussion and after that on a first-come basis at the Information Desk. New members are always welcome.
