  2. Larkspur Library Book Club: Apeirogon

    April 14, 2021, 4:15 PM - 5:15 PM

    Join the Larkspur Library Book Club to discuss Colum McCann's Apeirogon: A Novel. Bassam Aramin is Palestinian. Rami Elhanan is Israeli. They inhabit a world of intractable conflict that colors every aspect of their daily lives, from the roads they are allowed to take to the schools their daughters, Abir and Smadar, each attends. Theirs is a life in which children from both sides of the wall throw stones at one another. But their worlds shift irreparably when ten-year-old Abir is killed by a rubber bullet meant to quell unruly crowds, and again when thirteen-year-old Smadar becomes the victim of suicide bombers. When Bassam and Rami learn one another's stories and the loss that connects them, they become part of a much larger tale that ranges over centuries and continents. Apeirogon is a novel that balances on the knife-edge of fiction and nonfiction. This event is made possible by the Friends of the Larkspur Library.

  4. Meet the Author: Solace Wales

    April 16, 2021, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

    Braided in Fire: Black GIs and Tuscan Villagers on the Gothic Line 1944 is the stirring author’s search to understand the drama that unfolded between the Italian peasants and African-American infantrymen of the 366th Infantry Regiment whose lives were lost, or changed irrevocably by a village battle in Tuscany during the Battle of Garfagnana. Cultures and relationships are intertwined to become Braided in Fire in Sommocolonia, a medieval Tuscan village in the Apennines directly on the highly fortified Third Reich’s ‘Gothic Line’ stretching across northern Italy. Only at Sommocolonia did attacking German troops breakthrough that formidable line, with dire consequences to the inhabitants and their defenders, a handful of black GIs, who were outnumbered three to one by the Axis troops. In the desperate fight, Lt. John Fox sacrificed himself with supreme heroism. This event is made possible by the Friends of the Larkspur Library
