This month we are reading The Giver by Lois Lowry. "Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear of pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. When Jonas turns 12 he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth."

Babe Ruth hero of baseball

'Baseball' a film by Ken Burns: the 1920s

Saturday, Aug. 29, 2015, 1 p.m.

Baseball is everywhere this summer. But the history of the sport has its ups and downs. In this film in the Ken Burns series, we are considering what happened to baseball in the 1920s. It was in the '20s that baseball fully emerged into American life with its rituals, heroes, and scores. The 1920s was the time of Babe Ruth, who was seen as a great hero and given extensive publicity among other stars of that time who were thought to have embodied the best of the American persona.
