“One Book, Many Communities” and more at the Arcanum Public Library

The APL is participating with other local libraries in a reading initiative for northern Miami Valley residents. Patrons are invited to read the book “The One” by John Marrs and to participate in the many programs planned around the book. This thriller has readers wondering how far they might go to find their perfect match. All one needs to do is send in a DNA sample and wait for the name of your true love. As the story reveals, even soul mates can have secrets. The APL is hosting a book discussion on Thursday, March 28 at 6:30 for anyone interested. On Thursday, April 4, Amie Tennant will be presenting DNA Testing Ethics: Things to Consider at 6:00. In this lecture, Amie will discuss what is considered sound ethical practices for genetic genealogy and will presents case studies to help patrons consider their own opinions on utilizing DNA for research. No registration is needed for either of these events. There will be an interview with John Marrs via Skype at the Piqua campus of Edison State Community College. Join patrons from the area on Wednesday, April 10 at 1:30 as the author shares his thoughts on his book. Feel free to call the library for more details concerning this fantastic event.

David Nilsen, a beer writer and educator, will be presenting his third “Brew Review” with a focus on porters and stouts on Thursday, March 28 at 6:30. Patrons are asked to call the library to register in advance for this event.

The adult winter reading challenge is wrapping up with the last day to turn in entries March 31. Each title a patron reads will be an entry for a prize. Come in to the library for details.
