    Facilitator: Elaine Hirschenberger

    Most of the time we exist in mindlessness, a state of semi-awareness governed by habit and inattention. Mindlessness causes us to suffer, probably more than we are even aware. Mindfulness can be defined in a variety of ways, but simply stated it is a deliberate way of paying attention to what is happening within oneself as it is happening. Mindfulness is moment-by-moment awareness. It’s paying attention without judgment or evaluation. When we are mindful, we become more mentally alert, we’re more open and attentive and we’re able to perceive ourselves more clearly – as well as observing details that often escape our notice. If you can identify with any of these statements, you may find this monthly group very helpful.

    The Girl Who Wrote in Silk 
    by Kelli Estes

    Inspired by true events, Kelli Estes's brilliant and atmospheric debut serves as a poignant tale of two women determined to do the right thing. Inara Erickson is exploring her deceased aunt's island estate when she finds an elaborately stitched piece of fabric hidden in the house. As she peels back layer upon layer of the secrets it holds, Inara's life becomes interwoven with that of Mei Lein, a young Chinese girl mysteriously driven from her home a century before. Through the stories Mei Lein tells in silk, Inara uncovers a tragic truth that will shake her family to its core ― and force her to make an impossible choice.

    This is an opportunity for drummers around the region to gather and celebrate the rhythms of earth and life. Anyone with a djembe, dunan frame drum, or any other percussive instrument is welcome. For those interested in exploring, show don't have a drum, we will have a few spares. This group will explore a variety of rhythms, learn to speak through drumming, and develop a camaraderie that invokes the healthy vibrations of the earth. Men, women and teens are heartily welcome to enjoy this circle. Don't be concerned if you are not a strong drummer. Many of us are novices, who come to have fun, learn new things and meet new people.

    ViewFinders is a place where photographers of all levels come together to learn from each other and share their common interest in photography. The focus of this group is to have fun with others, to explore learning and shooting opportunities with any type of camera -- cell phones to DSLRs. Join us with your ideas and questions, along with your camera. Because this group occasionally takes field trips, advanced registration is recommended.

    Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI
    by David Grann

    In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, the Osage began to die under mysterious circumstances. David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long.
