 Join Librarian Barbara Wenglin for our fall-into-winter series using the exciting anthology Stories of Fatherhood, ed. by Diana Secker Tesdell (Everyman's Pocket Classics, c2014). Remaining dates for the series are Nov. 17, Dec. 8, Dec. 22, Jan 5, 2023, Jan 12 (film discussion). In varied settings and cultures, the collection gathers more than a century of timeless short stories about having, becoming, loving and losing fathers. For this session please read "The Mortality of Parents" by Jim Shepard (p.311) in which the narrator recalls his fears as a young teen of losing his father after his heart attack, vowing to mend his wild ways. A copy of the book is held on reserve at the Hub/Reference Desk for reading in the Library, with circulating copies available through the catalog. Program is supported by the Friends of the Library.
