Read a variety of books with moderator Ron Nicholson!

BTL is a relaxed and friendly gathering of people who enjoy sharing comments, ideas and questions about a common book they have read. The group moderator engages the members in discussion while sharing background information about the author, story, time period and locale.

BTL has three meeting times available each month so there’s always a time that fits in your schedule!

Chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman. In fact, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to point out that there is no such thing as an average woman. But it’s the early 1960s and her all-male team at Hastings Research Institute takes a very unscientific view of equality. Except for one: Calvin Evans; the lonely, brilliant, Nobel–prize nominated grudge-holder who falls in love with—of all things—her mind. True chemistry results.

But like science, life is unpredictable. Which is why a few years later Elizabeth Zott finds herself not only a single mother, but the reluctant star of America’s most beloved cooking show Supper at Six. Elizabeth’s unusual approach to cooking (“combine one tablespoon acetic acid with a pinch of sodium chloride”) proves revolutionary. But as her following grows, not everyone is happy. Because as it turns out, Elizabeth Zott isn’t just teaching women to cook. She’s daring them to change the status quo.

Get crafty at the library!

APLD has monthly crafting opportunities for adults–all free of charge to participants. Some of these crafts are led by library staff or volunteers, but sometimes the library brings in outside experts to lead the instruction. Most activities try to be complete in one sitting, but this is not always possible.  Find out more about this month’s craft in the newsletter. 

Registration is required for all our adult craft programs. Please call 812-926-0646 to register for our next craft!
