Hell From the Heavens

Tuesday, June 18 from 6:30-8 p.m.

Join us as author John Wukovits shares the story of WWII's greatest kamikaze attack. Nothing could have prepared the crew of the USS Laffey for the moment when the small ship was targeted by no fewer than twenty-two Japanese suicide aircraft for eighty minutes. But the Laffey somehow survived, and the gutted American warship limped from Okinawa's shore for home, where the ship and surviving crew would be feted as heroes. Mel Gibson has signed on to direct the film adaptation of this book, starring Mark Wahlberg.


Book Flower Bouquet

Thursday, June 27 from 6-7 p.m.

Cut flowers wilt. Why not make a beautiful, long-lasting bouquet of flowers out of book pages? These bouquets make a wonderful bookshelf decoration and are perfect to give out as a gift. Join us on Thursday, June 27 for a fun night of crafting where you will learn how to construct your very own book flower bouquet! All materials will be provided and no sign-up is required.
