Author Visit: American Junkie by Tom Hansen

Event: 
Thu, 04/05/2018 - 7:30pm - 8:45pm

In American Junkie, Tom Hansen takes us non-stop into a land of desperate addicts, failed punk bands, and brushes with sad fame, selling drugs during the Seattle grunge years. It's a story that maps his heroin addiction, from the promise of a young life to the prison of a mattress, from budding musician to broken down junkie, drowning in syringes and cigarette butts, shooting heroin into wounds the size of softballs, and ultimately, a ride to a hospital for a six-month stay and a painful self-discovery that cuts down to the bone. This program will occur after regular library hours and no other services will be available.

The Art of Racing in the Rain

Event: 
Sun, 03/04/2018 - 2:00pm

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs. A philosopher with a nearly human soul, he has educated himself by watching television extensively and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver. Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn’t simply about going fast. Having learned what it takes to be a compassionate and successful person, the wise canine can barely wait until his next lifetime when he is sure he will return as a man. A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life . . . as only a dog could perceive it.
