If you’re looking for ways to making meaningful connections with others, you’ve come to the right place! We’re a Meetup for 20 and 30-somethings who want to have conversations, whether it be through discussions, book groups (in bars!), trivia nights, lectures, or hands-on DIY projects. This group exists for you, and your hosts at the East Brunswick Public Library are always looking for inspiration for new events. Please contact one of the organizers if you have any ideas, and we will do our best to make them happen.
Bring your embroidery, needlepoint, cross stitch, or sewing project to this drop-in program! Help each other troubleshoot issues, take the time to work on that project you keep putting off, or get inspired to start a new project.
Summary (from the publisher)
A riveting, brilliantly written debut novel, The Death of Bees is a coming-of-age story in which two young sisters attempt to hold the world at bay after the mysterious death of their parents.
Marnie and Nelly, left on their own in Glasgow's Hazlehurst housing estate, attempt to avoid suspicion until Marnie can become a legal guardian for her younger sister.
Written with fierce sympathy and beautiful precision, and told in alternating voices, The Death of Bees by Lisa O'Donnell is an enchanting, grimly comic tale of lost souls who, unable to answer for themselves, can answer only for each other.
We will look at the progression of folk music in America with an emphasis on going behind the scenes and learning more about the artists and their music – including their inspirations and interpretations. It’s a fascinating journey that links the various phases of the folk music revival from the early pioneers (Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, Leadbelly, and The Weavers) to the Troubadours (Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, etc) to the groups (Peter, Paul & Mary, the Brothers Four, The Kingston Trio, The Limeliters, etc.) through folk-rock including the Mamas and the Papas, The Lovin' Spoonful and many others. Bring your singing voices and join in on these wonderful memories.
