What we're reading on August 3rd...

The Uninvited
Cat Winters
Published 2015 by William Morrow


Twenty-five year old Ivy Rowan rises from her bed after being struck by the flu, only to discover the world has been torn apart in just a few short days.

But Ivy’s life-long gift—or curse—remains. For she sees the uninvited ones—ghosts of loved ones who appear to her, unasked, unwelcomed, for they always herald impending death. On that October evening in 1918 she sees the spirit of her grandmother, rocking in her mother’s chair. An hour later, she learns her younger brother and father have killed a young German out of retaliation for the death of Ivy’s older brother Billy in the Great War.

Horrified, she leaves home, to discover the flu has caused utter panic and the rules governing society have broken down. Ivy is drawn into this new world of jazz, passion, and freedom, where people live for the day, because they could be stricken by nightfall. But as her ‘uninvited guests’ begin to appear to her more often, she knows her life will be torn apart once more, but Ivy has no inkling of the other-worldly revelations about to unfold.

Our last Eclipse Preparedness Class will be held on July 25th at 6:00 p.m.  Come learn the science behind an eclipse; how to safely view the eclipse; and make your own viewers.

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will cross the continental United States from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.  The last time a total eclipse crossed the United States from sea to sea was June 8, 1918.  The 2017 eclipse in either total or partial phase can be seen by over 500 million people in North and South America, Europe, and Africa.  In the U.S. millions will gather along a tiny ribbon less than 100 miles wide to see totality, the complete blocking out of the sun by the Moon which will reveal the solar corona.  The rest of the entire country will be able to see a partial eclipse.  It is also truly an historic event and a wonderful opportunity to view one of nature's most stunning displays.
