November 8th – Library and Lunch – Accidental Tourist by Anne Tyler

Book Discussion Group – Open to the Public

Tuesday, November 8th from Noon to 1pm.

We will be discussing the book “Accidental Tourist” by Anne Tyler.

Book Info…..
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Macon Leary is a travel writer who hates both travel and anything out of the ordinary. He is grounded by loneliness and an unwillingness to compromise his creature comforts when he meets Muriel, a deliciously peculiar dog-obedience trainer who up-ends Macon’s insular world–and thrusts him headlong into a remarkable engagement with life.

Great Program On Frank Lloyd Wright this Past Saturday

What a great program on Saturday by Roy Behrens on Frank Lloyd Wright….he did a great job of bringing the topic back to Iowa and even Harlan. I do not think I will be able to walk around Harlan again without looking for a Gothic style house or a Prairie style house. Thanks to those who could join us!

This Saturday, October 8th at 11am – “Frank Lloyd Wright – Or Was He Wrong?”

“Frank Lloyd Wright – Or Was He Wrong?”

11:00 am   October 8, 2016

Harlan Community Library



Join us to hear Roy Behrens present this fascinating program and address

pressing questions like: Where did Wright come from philosophically?

Was Wright right about architecture, and about intrinsic connections between human beings and their earthly surroundings – including the houses in which they reside? His presentation will be richly illustrated by scores of historical images of Frank Lloyd Wright’s life and the iconic objects he made.

Dephians, Delta Kappa Gamma, Harlan Literary Club, Shelby County University Women, and the Harlan Community Library have received funding from Humanities Iowa, a private non-profit state affiliate of the

National Endowment for the Humanities, to bring you this special presentation.

Behrens is an author of several books, a Professor of Art and a distinguished Scholar at the University of Northern Iowa.

The program is free and open to the public.
