The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute provides programming for Columbia area residents over 50. At this special free brown-bag seminar, librarian Lauren Williams will talk about the community-wide reading program, One Read, a project she co-chairs. Learn about One Read's 15-year history, past book selections and how community members can get involved. Feel free to bring your lunch.
Bring your lunch and join us as we discuss this year's One Read runner-up, "The Good Lord Bird" by James McBride. Little Onion, a 12-year-old slave actually named Henry, is mistaken for a girl and forced to flee the Kansas territory with abolitionist John Brown after an altercation with his master. The adventures that follow, told in Onion’s vibrant and singular voice, take us from Bloody Kansas to the doomed raid on Harpers Ferry.
One Read panelist Marty Riback will lead a discussion of this year's runner-up title, "The Good Lord Bird" by James McBride. If this historical romp was your preferred choice for this year's One Read, don't miss this chance to talk about it with like-minded others.
