Wed, May 18 @ 6 – Seed
A brutal and dark look at cult living for a 15 year old girl that has known no other life. Pearl’s world is filled with Nature and magic that act as a filter for the hard truths she doesn’t understand, nor is even aware of until Ellis, and outside boy, comes to live at See with his mother and little sister.
The darkness of Seed starts to come to light when Ellis arrives, and the reader can’t help but feel sorry for Pearl as her world starts to come into question. Her innocence and compulsion to serve and please the Leader Papa S. and Kindreds were written so believably that I completely understood her point of view.
In some spots I thought certain points were belabored and a bit slow, but this was a wonderful debut novel from a promising author. I am hoping that a second installment is in the works, which says a lot because I’m pretty tired of series. Recommended for teens 14+ and adults.

Thur, May 19 @ 5 – Green Screen Photography
Place yourself somewhere exotic, doing something fantastic or holding something crazy.  Anything is possible with green screen technology.  Snacks and all supplies provided.  This program will meet in the Program Room.
