Library Highlights Upcoming Programs
From Library Director Leslie McDonnell
On Wednesday, September 22, at 7 pm the Holliston Public Library will present “Journaling for Beginners” with Emily Kokidko. Journaling is a popular way to create a written record of thoughts and feelings to access creativity and reduce stress. Emily is the founder of “In Bloom by Emily,” a stationery shop that promotes awareness of the benefits of journaling. She is donating her time to the library for this program. This virtual program lasts one hour. Participants should have a journal or paper and something to write with handy. Visit www.hollistonlibrary.org to register and receive the Zoom invitation.
The Morning Book Club will discuss Barbara Kingsolver’s Unsheltered on Monday, October 4 at 11 am. The Mystery Book Club will read A Time for Mercy by John Grisham on Tuesday, October 12 at 11 am. The History Book Club meets on Monday, September 20 at 10:30 am to share recent books they have enjoyed. All three groups offer both in-person and virtual attendance simultaneously and welcome new members. Register to receive a Zoom invitation. Copies of books are available about one month prior to the discussions at the library.
Movie Mondays will show Minari on Monday, October 18, at 12:30 pm. The film is the story of a Korean-American family that moves to an Arkansas farm in search of their own American Dream. It won the Grand Jury prize at the Sundance Festival, was nominated for 6 Oscars and won the Best Supporting Actress award for Youn Yuh-jung as the grandmother. The film is shown in person.
