January Readings at Eagle Harbor Books

Ann Corbett & Mary Ellen McCaffree: Politics of the Possible
Thurs., Mar. 8, 7:30 PM

This lively journey through one dynamic decade proves our political system really can function as our founders designed.
Mary Ellen McCaffree and Anne Corbett take us inside a government overhaul led by a team of moderates -- fledgling
politicians and citizens alike -- who said
'Our government isn't working for us!' then rolled up their sleeves, joined the process and made a difference.

Jean Davies Okimoto: Walter's Muse
Sun., Mar. 11, 3 PM

It's the first summer of her retirement and librarian Maggie Lewis is relishing the unfolding of sweet summer days on Vashon Island: walking on the beach, reading the classics, and kayaking. But in June when a sudden storm hits the island, Maggie's summer becomes about as peaceful as navigating white water. Not only does her wealthy sister arrive uninvited with a startling announcement; but Maggie finds herself entangled with her new Baker's Beach neighbor, Walter Hathaway. A famous children's author and recovering alcoholic, Walter has a history with Maggie they would each like to forget. Delightfully told with humor and insight, Walter's Muse is a page turner for romantics, writers, and the young at heart at any age.

Sarah Jio: The Bungalow
Thurs., Mar. 15, 7:30 PM

In the summer of 1942, twenty-one-year-old Anne Calloway, newly
engaged, sets off to serve in the Army Nurse Corps on the Pacific island of Bora-Bora. More exhilarated by the adventure of a lifetime than she ever was by her predictable fiancÚ, she is drawn to a mysterious soldier named Westry, and their friendship soon blossoms into hues as deep as the hibiscus flowers native to the island. Under the thatched roof of an abandoned beach bungalow, the two share a private world-until they witness a gruesome crime, Westry is suddenly redeployed, and the idyll vanishes into the winds of war.

David Martin & Nicolette Bromberg: Shadows of a Fleeting World
Sun., Mar. 18, 3 PM

Pictorialism emerged in the early twentieth century as a prominent style of fine art photography. Artists engaged in this style were interested in the effects of transient light and Japanese compositional elements. They developed innovative darkroom techniques to create unique soft-focus photographs that reflected contemporary painting styles. Historically, pictorial photography was narrowly defined by certain characteristics that gave an inaccurate assessment of its
important contributions to the medium. Recent rediscoveries
from American regional camera clubs, including the Seattle
Camera Club (SCC), reveal that the movement was broader and more individualist than previously thought. The book provides a rare glimpse into the regional Pictorialist movement. It documents the lives and artistic accomplishments of the SCC photographers.

Brock & Fernette Eide: The Dyslexic Advantage
Wed., Mar. 21, 7 PM

In this paradigm-shifting book, neurolearning experts Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide describe an exciting new brain science that reveals that dyslexic people have unique brain structure and organization. While the differences are responsible for certain challenges with literacy and reading, the dyslexic brain also gives a predisposition to important skills, and special talents.

This ticketed event will take place at IslandWood. Tickets are available at Eagle Harbor Book Company or online.

Kim Schaumburg: Her Last Race
Thurs., Mar. 22, 7:30 PM

The year is 1993. Women jockeys are no longer a novelty in the world of horse racing, but they still have to fight hard for respect in a male-dominated sport that heeds its own rules. Nikki Summers has spent too many years toiling as a second-rate jockey at an obscure track in Oregon, as she slowly pays her way through college with hopes of becoming a veterinary doctor. When tragedy forces her to question her motives for participating in such a brutal sport, she heads south to finally confront the mother who abandoned her as a child. With pride and profession on the line, the story gallops toward the finish on a course beset with mother/daughter conflicts and ethical dilemmas.

Connie Sidles: Second Nature
Sun., Mar. 25, 3 PM

In the rush of modern life, in the chaos of a world that is often in crisis, where can you find peace of mind? Constance Sidles finds it in nature. If, like her, you're searching for a haven that gives you respite from care and grants you hope for the future, then come with her as she takes you on a journey into the wilds of a natural area set in the heart of a big city: the Montlake Fill in Seattle.

Jim Gullo: Trading Manny
Thurs., Mar. 29, 7:30 PM

Ask Jim Gullo: the past few years have been difficult ones for fans of baseball. In December 2007, just as his seven-year old son Joe was beginning to develop a true passion for the game, the Mitchell Report on players' steroid use made it clear that America's pastime wasn't what it claimed to be. Suddenly Jim found himself struggling to answer some difficult questions. Jim and Joe set out to find their own answers. By turns humorous, heartbreaking, and inspiring, Trading Manny tells the story of their journey back to baseball--how along the way Joe traded his idol for amore worthy hero, and Jim learned something valuable about being a father.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Wed., Mar. 14, 7 PM


Ranking with STAGECOACH as one of the greatest of its genre, THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE is the modern-day Western to beat all Westerns. Jimmy Stewart plays the bungling but charming big-city lawyer determined to rid the fair village of Shinbone of its number one nuisance and Bad Man: Liberty Valance (Lee Marvin). And as if all that weren't enough, the biggest star that ever aimed a six-shooter plays the "Man" of the title: John Wayne. Super-sincere Stewart and rugged rancher Wayne share the same love interest (Vera Miles). One gets the gunman but the other gets the gal . . . and the glory. James Stewart, John Wayne; Paramount Pictures; Directed by John Ford, 1962. Free at the Library. More...

Island Film Group:
Sat., Mar. 31, 2 PM


Join us for a special showing of Pleasantville (1998), a film about the power of books in honor of the Bainbridge Library's 50th Anniversary.
When two 1990s teenagers are transported back to the black and white, 1950s-style town of  Pleasantville, one of the oddities they notice is that all the books consist of blank pages. When the teens tell the plot of a missing text, the book fills itself in (in color). Soon the library becomes the most popular place in town, with teenagers lined up outside the door, eager for new ideas. As the people of Pleasantville expand their thinking through books and other experiences, they and their world gradually fill with color. When the "old guard" of Pleasantville attempt to stop this process, their techniques include burning the books and forbidding access to the library. Free at the Library.
