Edouard Manet, The Reader, 1861

Daily Thoughts 11/15/2014

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I also checked the gifts and the displays.

There is a play this afternoon, at 2:00 p.m. at the library, Love, Loss, and What I Wore in the community room.  It was fairly well attended.

I spent some time working with mailchimp.  I also contacted someone about doing an immigration program.

On the way home, I read some of The Peripheral by William Gibson.  It is rather interesting.  The story is our reality with two twists, one is a parallel reality very similar to our own, and the other is a near future setting with many recent advances that we would recognize today.  Sometimes people call this genre near future thriller.  It is on the cusp of science fiction, but not quite.  It makes the story puzzling, a bit disconcerting at points, and at the same time recognizable.
