Title: 
Next to Love

Join the Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club as we read  Next to Love by Ellen Feldman, a tltle recommended for fans of The Guernsey Literary Society , The Postmistress, and The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. 

It’s 1941. Babe throws like a boy, thinks for herself, and never expects to escape her quiet Massachusetts town. Then World War II breaks out, and everything changes. Her friend Grace fears being left alone with her daughter when her husband ships out; Millie weds the boy who always refused to settle down; and Babe wonders if she should marry Claude, who even as a child could never harm a living thing. As the war rages abroad, Babe, Grace, and Millie experience the dislocations and the exhilaration of a society in flux—from postwar traumas to women’s rights, racial injustice to anti-Semitism. And when the men return, nothing can go back to quite the way it was. Read more about Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club: Next to Love by Ellen Feldman

Night Photography is more like poetry than it is photography.  Each image brings out things you simply don’t see in an object during the day.  You will learn about the equipment and techniques used to capture images at night as well as how to paint with light, how to best shoot star trails, fireworks and HDR images at night.  We will also have several short demonstrations to help you understand the concepts.

The class instructor, Cliff Loehr, is a photo hobbyist and a member of the Huntsville Photographic Society.  As a software engineer by day, Cliff enjoys mixing his technical and artistic skills required for photography at night.

The class is free and sign up is required. Sign up for the class at the Murphy Library front desk or by calling 256-881-5620. Space is limited. Read more about Night Photography Class

Title: 
Explosive Eighteen

Join the Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club as we read a Stephanie Plum mystery, Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich

Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127 from Hawaii to Newark, she's knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, she's flying back to New Jersey solo, and someone who sounds like Sasquatch is snoring in row 22. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he's dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. The FBI, the fake FBI, and guns-for-hire are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying. Only one other person has seen the missing photograph--Stephanie Plum. Now she's the target, and she doesn't intend to end up in a garbage can.  Read more about Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club: Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich
