Titles on Tap Book Group – October

Security-book-coverTuesday, October 25th, 2016 at 7:30 pm

Our next book will be the debut novel “Security” by Gina Wohlsdorf, a modern mystery thriller paying homage to Hitchcock and Daphne de Maurier. Copies of the book are available at the Reference Desk, and the audio version is available for instant download or streaming on hoopla for Norwood residents. We highly recommend you read the paper book version though – you’ll see why. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 10/25 @ 7:30 pm!

Titles on Tap is a social book group for readers in their 20s and 30s and for the young at heart. We go in for stories that are shaken, not stirred, and we don’t mind taking our love of lit outside the library walls. Titles on Tap meets once a month in the left-hand bar of Napper Tandy’s to eat, drink, be merry, and discuss the latest reading selection. Visit our website and follow us @titlesontap to learn more.

An Irish trio from The Jolly Rogues will perform at the Morrill Memorial Library on Sunday, November 6 at 3 p.m. to wrap up the library’s fall Musical Sundays concert series. The original group scheduled to appear that day had to cancel due to the death of a band member, but the library is very pleased to welcome Jim Murray and father-and-son duo Ryan and Brennish Thomson to perform in their place.

A baritone singer, Jim also plays guitar, mandolin, and Irish bodhran and has delighted audiences worldwide, from England and Germany to Beijing and Shanghai. The award-winning Fiddling Thomsons, as they are known, play a variety of instruments including guitar, violin, banjo, and accordion, as well as the ancient Chinese gourd and reed whistle. This talented trio will play and sing a medley of lively tunes, sea shanties, and Irish songs.
