  1. Middle Grade Book Club: Nightlights

    October 29, 2020, 3:45 PM - 4:45 PM @ Library's Zoom

    The Larkspur Library's Middle-Grade Book Club will be meeting to discuss Lorena Alvarez's book Nightlights. Join us to discuss Nightlight by Lorena Alvarez. Every night, tiny stars appear out of the darkness in little Sandy's bedroom. She catches them and creates wonderful creatures to play with until she falls asleep, and in the morning brings them back to life in the whimsical drawings that cover her room. One day, Morfie, a mysterious pale girl, appears at school. And she knows all about Sandy's drawings... Nightlights is a beautiful story about fear, insecurity, and creativity, from the enchanting imagination of Lorena Alvarez. Call the library (415) 927-5005 to schedule a pick up a free copy. Hurry supplies are limited. This event and copies of the book were made possible by the Friends of the Larkspur Library.

  2. Meet the Author: Jessica O’Dwyer

    October 30, 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Larkspur Library's Zoom

    The Larkspur Library is excited to host local author Jessica O’Dwyer who will be sharing with us her new book Mother Mother: A Novel. Two mothers. Two countries. One adoption story. Contemporary art museum curator Julie Cowan achieves her dream of motherhood through adoption, but her life is far from perfect. Her pathologist husband, Mark, is distracted at work, while her hotshot new museum director boss doubts Julie's curatorial chops. And Julie's young son, Juan, may never recover from trauma inflicted by early life spent in a Guatemalan orphanage. At the same time, Juan's birth mother, an indigenous Ixil Maya, navigates her own tumultuous path, beginning with surviving a horrific massacre. In this gripping tale told from alternating perspectives, both mothers must draw on fierce inner strength to reckon with their life circumstances, and life choices. Made possible by the Friends of the Larkspur Library.
