  • THE LOWLAND: A NOVEL by Jhumpa Lahiri

    This fascinating story about two brothers takes place in India and in America. Raised in Calcutta, they were inseparable as youngsters. As they grew, their paths took them in different directions; one toward active social revolution in India and the other toward a quiet life in scientific research in America. When the brother in India is killed because of his activism, Subhash returns home to offer comfort to his family and his brother's wife. It is not to be an easy task. And it is that endeavor that makes up a key ingredient of this engrossing story. What does one owe a beloved brother... in this life and beyond?

    This story is beautifully written. You'll find yourself rereading particular passages for their beauty and inspiration. Jhumpa Lahiri has been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Literature.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22; 7-8 PM @ The Greene

Children’s author DAVID LUBAR, who has written In the Land of the Lawn Weenies, Invasion of the Road Weenies and others, will introduce his newest book, My Rotten Life: Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie.  Due to a strange science experiment gone wrong, 10 year-old Nathan is doused with a serum and transforms into a zombie.  But he discovers he likes being half-dead.  He doesn’t need to eat, bathe or sleep, which helps him work on his video game skills.  And his new tolerance for pain leads to athletic stardom and makes worrying about bullies a thing of the past.  Nathan can win every gross-out contest and is becoming slightly popular with his peers.  Does he really want his friends to help find him a cure or does he prefer his wacky zombie life?
