Book Discussion – Strangers in Their Own Land
April 27, 6:30 PM
Bradford Public Library
Sociologist Arlie Hochschild travels to red state Louisianna, hoping to overcome the “empathy wall” which is creating deepening political division in the United States and elsewhere. Does she succeed? Is it really possible to understand the thinking of others, to see the world as they do, without changing ones’s own beliefs?
Come to the discussion led by Andrea Nye and explore this very timely subject. Pick a book up at the Bradford Public Library.
Make a Poem!
April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate, Bradford Public Library wants to create a community of poets! The library has spread notebooks around town to be filled with community poetry. How it works is find a yellow or red notebook in the library, store or restaurant in town, open it up, add a line or two to what is already written or turn the page and write your own poem, or just read it!
