Chess Game - Marcel Duchamp
Chess Game, Marcel Duchamp, 1910

Daily Thoughts 12/17/2015

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of Twain and Stanley Enter Paradise.  The concept of paradise in this novel is interesting.  Mark Twain viewed his childhood as a kind of paradise.  In contrast, towards the end of his life, Stanley found adopting a child a kind of paradise and a beautiful thing to do.

I checked the gift books and the displays.

I printed up some of the short guidebooks for the discussion for the film Ellis which we are showing on Saturday.

We discussed the book, The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls at the book club today.  The next book we plan on discussing is The Girls of Atomic City:  The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II by Denise Kiernan.

I spent some time preparing for two programs, the film Ellis on Saturday and an Adult Board Games Night, tonight from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

There is also a computer class for Beginning Excel from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

I played a game of checkers and a game of chess during adult games night.
