The Weight of Silence by Heather Gudenkauf. When two seven-year-old girls go missing, all are under suspicion. Calli Clark is a dreamer. A sweet, gentle girl, Callie suffers from selective mutism, brought on by a tragedy she experienced as a toddler. Her mother Antonia tries her best to help, but is confined by marriage to a violent husband. Petra Gregory is Calli's best friend, her soul mate and her voice. But neither Petra nor Calli have been heard from since their disappearance was discovered. Now Calli and Petra's families are bound by the question of what has happened to their children. As support turns to suspicion, it seems the answers lie trapped in the silence of unspoken secrets.. Registration required. Open to all.

“Discourse 7” by Joshua Reynolds (1723 - 1792). Reynolds is considered the greatest British portrait painter of the 18th century. As president of the Royal Academy of Arts, Reynolds delivered an address each year at the Annual Academy Award Ceremony. They form the basis of his Discourses. In this month’s selection, Reynolds places the visual arts on the same level as poetry and other liberal arts. He advises visual artists to participate in conversations with learned men. He states, “He can never be a great artist who is grossly illiterate,” and recommends that reading become the “favorite recreation” of an artist’s leisure hours. The piece also contains many opinions on taste and beauty.

NOS4A2 by Joe Hill. Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things : a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it's across Massacusetts or across the country. Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing--and terrifying--playground of amusements he calls "Christmasland." Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble--and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx's unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He's on the road again and he's picked up a new passenger : Vic's own son. Registration required. Open to All.
