Author Event: Alyssa Mastromonaco

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Johnson Room
If your funny sister were the former deputy chief of staff to President Barack Obama, her behind-the-scenes political memoir might look something like Alyssa Mastromonaco's just-published book, Who Thought this Was a Good Idea? and Other Questions You Should Have Answers to When You Work in the White House.  In it she shares an intimate portrait of a president, a real and raw peek behind the curtains of the White House, and candid advice for young women finding their way. "Always fascinating and very funny, Alyssa's book is full of juicy stories from one of the world's most glamorous jobs," writes Mindy Kaling of The New York Times

Ms. Mastromonaco will speak, read from her book, field questions, and sign copies of her book, which will be available for purchase at the event from The Book Stall at Chestnut Court.

Ulysses Book Discussion Group B

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
James Joyce
Glencoe Public Library

Would you enjoy a guided tour of some of the great, daunting works of literature—books that you may have always wanted to read but whose length and reputation for being challenging have held you back? The library’s new Big Books series, launching this spring with Ulysses, is intended to be your guide through a rewarding literary experience.

Ulysses is arguably the greatest novel ever written in the English language. On the surface, the book relates the story of Leopold Bloom as he travels and travails through Dublin and its environs throughout June 16 and into the early morning of June 17, 1904. Others in the marvelous cast of characters include the voluptuous Molly Bloom and the melancholy Stephan Dedalus.  The reader soon discovers the genius of Joyce through the book’s fantastic dialogue and its cascading, deliciously layered narrative.

The instructor for our course will be Richard Reeder.  Richard teaches literature courses, including Ulysses, at the Oakton Community College Emeritus program.  He is the moderator of the book club at the historic Cliff Dwellers Club, the author of Chicago Sketches, and a regular participant in the library’s monthly Writers’ Open Mic Night.

 Registration is required and space is limited.  Glencoe residents have priority if the class fills up.
