Canceled due to Weather - East Wild Rumpus: An Anji Play experience

Thu, 06/27/2019 - 5:00pm to 7:30pm

This program takes place at REINDAHL PARK (1818 Portage Rd). Note: No program July 4.

Enjoy child-led play in the park each week, based on the educational approach of Anji Play. The library will provide special play equipment to spark your children's imagination. Kids can create a Play Story based on their activities of the day and grownups will have opportunities to help their kids reflect on their play.

Wear messy clothes and bring a water bottle (optional). If you like, bring a picnic dinner or purchase a meal from the "Let's Eat Out" local food carts, and make an evening of it!

This award-winning event is created in partnership with the Madison Parks Division and AnjiPlay, and funded in part by a grant from the Madison Public Library Foundation.

The Salad Days Book Club - Still Alice by Lisa Genova

Thu, 06/27/2019 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Join us for Hawthorne Library's monthly book club, The Salad Days! This group is tailored to (but by no means limited to!) readers of the millennial generation looking to explore books and popular culture.

~Still Alice by Lisa Genova~

Still Alice is a compelling debut novel about a 50-year-old woman's sudden descent into early onset Alzheimer's disease, written by first-time author Lisa Genova, who holds a Ph.D in neuroscience from Harvard University.

Alice Howland, happily married with three grown children and a house on the Cape, is a celebrated Harvard professor at the height of her career when she notices a forgetfulness creeping into her life. As confusion starts to cloud her thinking and her memory begins to fail her, she receives a devastating diagnosis: early onset Alzheimer's disease. Fiercely independent, Alice struggles to maintain her lifestyle and live in the moment, even as her sense of self is being stripped away. In turns heartbreaking, inspiring and terrifying, Still Alice captures in remarkable detail what's it's like to literally lose your mind. (from the publisher)
