Big Books/Moby Dick

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Forte Reference Room

A complex sea-monster of a book, Moby-Dick by Herman Melville is a rewarding literary experience. This American classic is the library’s second selection for its Big Books series of guided discussions around daunting but worthy works. Leading the class will be Stephen Hall, whose deep background in philosophy and theology has informed his 25 years as an instructor in the Basic Program at the Graham School for Continuing Studies at the University of Chicago. Registration is required and space is limited.  Glencoe residents have priority if the class fills up. Registration begins September 1. Sponsored by the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library.

Parenting is a gift, a profoundly challenging gift in our world of choices at every turn. So many of us wonder how best to parent our values and how to raise grateful, socially responsible children. Join us for community conversations that will provide developmentally appropriate, practical ideas for parents to increase the awe, appreciation and awareness of our children and our families. These nondenominational conversations will be facilitated by Reverend Daphne Cody (St. Elisabeth’s Episcopal Church), Rabbi Lisa Greene (North Shore Congregation Israel), and Kathy Livingston, LCSW (Family Service of Glencoe). ANOTHER "PARENTING WITH CONVICTION" DISCUSSION, THIS ONE FOCUSING ON RAISING SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS CHILDREN, WILL BE OFFERED ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, AT 7:00 P.M.
