"Friday Night Lights" Book Discussion (Mon. 17 Oct, 2016 6:00 pm)

Fall means football and the Danville Public Library will host a book discussion on the New York Times best-selling non-fiction hit, “Friday Night Lights,” by H.G. Bissinger on Monday, October  17, 6:00 p.m., at St. Luke’s Community Center.

Special guests and Danville High School alums Tom and Jeff Durbin will lead the discussion and share personal anecdotes and insight from their successful careers as players and coaches for more than 30 years with teams from high school and college football programs.

Jeff Durbin shared honors as Associated Press Ohio Coach of the Year for Division II in 1993 and is a member of the Stark County High School Football Hall of Fame. In addition to coaching Lake High School for 23 years, he also served at the University of Akron. Tom Durbin served as offensive line coach for the Washington and Jefferson College Presidents for 19 years and two national championships.

Current Danville Blue Devils Coach Ed Honabarger and his football players also plan to attend the program. 

Readers can return once again to the timeless account of the Permian Panthers of Odessa--the winningest high-school football team in Texas history. Odessa is not known to be a town big on dreams, but the Panthers help keep the hopes and dreams of this small, dusty town going.

Socially and racially divided, Odessa’s fragile economy follows the treacherous boom-bust path of the oil business. In bad times, the unemployment rate barrels out of control; in good times, its murder rate skyrockets. But every Friday night from September to December, when the Permian High School Panthers play football, this West Texas town becomes a place where dreams can come true.

With frankness and compassion, Bissinger chronicles a season in the life of Odessa and shows how single-minded devotion to the team shapes the community and inspires--and sometimes shatters--the teenagers who wear the Panthers' uniforms.

The program is free and open to all ages. A copy of the book, donated by the Friends of the Library, will be given away as a door prize. Refreshments will be served.

 For more information, call the Danville Public Library at 740-599-BOOK (2665) or visit www.knox.net.

World War II - The Home Front (Tue. 18 Oct, 2016 7:00 pm)

Michael Eckers has studied American military history for more than 40 years and on Tuesday, October 18, 7:00 p.m. the author and historian will share “World War II – The Home Front” at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street as part of his five-state fall tour.
His service in the US Navy at the end of Vietnam created a desire to honor those who have sacrificed for our freedoms.  A decade ago, while working as a rural postmaster, he responded to an invitation to speak on the Civil War to a group of students at a local school.  The rest, as he says, “is history”.

Combining his public speaking with writing, Eckers weaves story upon story from the very pages of our nation’s past.  His interest in the War Between the States has led him to publish three books on this chapter of the American saga.  His first novel, “Northern Colors”, released in 2009 was followed in 2010 by a historical non-fiction work, “The Boys of Wasioja”  and “Wisconsin Iron”, a deeply personal novel of duty and dedication.   Released in October of 2011, “Colors in the Air”, a World War II novel featured the story of a young Bombardier in the 8th Air Force and his bride back in Minnesota.

Amusing anecdotes gathered from a 30-year career in the postal service—from letter carrier to retiring as postmaster--in a small Midwestern town are found in “Losing Your Zip.” The book provides a lighthearted look at what goes on behind the doors (and the counter) at a rural post office.
His most recent work on World War I, “Colors in the Earth,” tells the story of another generation of the Weldon family and their timeless contributions to the security of our freedom today.  Journey with the first Doughboys as they go "Over There" to France and combat against the armies of Kaiser Wilhelm.
The multimedia program is free and open to the public of all ages. Books will be available for purchase and autograph prior to and after the program. Refreshments will be served.
For information, call the main library at 740-392-2665 Ext. 243, visit www.knox.net or email [email protected].

Halloween Brown Bag Chat: The Last Ones (Wed. 26 Oct, 2016 12:00 pm)

“Surviving the end is only the beginning” may be the perfect teaser line for her latest book, but Author T. Michelle Nelson will take us back to the beginning of “The Last Ones,” and zombies for a fun Halloween Brown Bag Chat on Wednesday, October 26, noon, at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street.

Evie Stone is a small town girl who has moved off to college to better herself and make a new life outside of her rural West Kentucky roots. When the zombie plague breaks out, Evie has only one choice. She must get back home to her family and the safety of small town life. She will find her once quaint and beautiful hometown is now overrun with zombies and the only source of order is the local motorcycle gang. Can Evie and her family survive the ‘rotters’ as well as the dangerous bikers?

T. Michelle Nelson is an American author of paranormal fiction who currently resides in Mount Vernon. She was born in Benton, Kentucky. She graduated with a degree in Elementary Education from Murray State University in the late nineties with an emphasis in Fine Arts and Literature.

She published her first book in 2012 when “The Life and Death of Lily Drake” was released by Inkspell Publishing. Since then, she has successfully completed the Lily Drake series which consist of three books and two short stories and is a best-selling author. “The Last Ones” is the first book in her new zombie series. When she isn’t writing, she enjoys traveling to New Orleans and spending time with her husband and son.

The program is free and open to all. Copies of her books will be available for purchase and autograph. A free copy will be donated by Friends of the Library as a door prize. Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch or wear your favorite zombie costume. Refreshments will be provided.

The most controversial Presidential election ever—Ohio’s Governor Rutherford B. Hayes versus New York’s Samuel Tilden—took place 140 years ago.  Author and Kenyon College Alumnus Peter Dickson will present “Sex and the Notorious 1876 Election: Kate Chase and Kenyon’s Hayes” on Thursday, October 27, 7:00 p.m.

Dickson will review the notorious manner in which the Electoral College deadlock was settled. The long overlooked role Katherine Chase Sprague, the grandniece of the founder of Kenyon College, played in this major political crisis will be discussed.

Did Sprague use her sexual as well as considerable political influence to prevent her adulterous lover, New York Senator Roscoe Conkling, from tilting the outcome in favor of Tilden and tipped the balance towards Hayes, a Kenyon alum?

Two new biographies about Katherine, known as “Kate” will be discussed. Dickson will make his case that, without a doubt, she is the most extraordinary woman in the nation’s political history prior to Eleanor Roosevelt.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665), visit www.knox.net or email [email protected].
