The Pember Library in Granville will host part four of the four-part reading, viewing and discussion series for adults called Pushing the Limits. Pushing the Limits brings together books and video featuring authors, scientists and everyday people who thrive on exploring the natural world.
All programs are held at the Pember Library. For details please see our website http://pember.sals.edu/ or contact Ardyce Bresett, 518-642-2525, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Light snacks with coffee or water will be provided.
Dylan O’Leary will lead a discussion of When the Killing’s Done, by T. C. Boyle on Sunday, April 9 at 1:00 PM, including a video of the author interview and human interest stories. Through this program you and your community will consider how we humans constantly push the limits of nature – that might mean the world around us or it may mean our own human nature. You’ll consider together “what is natural?” and “is there such a thing as pushing nature too far?”
This national program has been developed by a team of library professionals, scientists, and filmmakers. Their organizations include Dartmouth College, the Association for Rural and Small Libraries, the Califa Group (a California-based library consortium), Dawson Media Group, and Oregon State University– with generous funding from the National Science Foundation.
