JULY 15: Some of us may remember the Periodic Table of Elements as nothing more than a chart that we struggled to memorize in a high school science class. However, when one takes a closer look past the neatly stacked alphabetic symbols, it is so much more. On Tuesday, July 15, at 7:00 p.m., “The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom of the Universe” by Theodore Gray, will be the focus of the Adult Book Discussion at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street. “The Elements…” is a colorful book chock full of fascinating facts, figures and stories about the 118 elements that make up our world. Library Director John Chidester will lead the discussion about many never-before-seen photographs that make up a visual portrayal of every known element in the universe, and reveal some of the history and examples of how each element is used. The book discussion is part of the Literary Elements Adult Summer Reading program, and is free and open to the public of all ages. Refreshments will be served. Participants will be eligible for SRP door prizes. Register now through July 26 to be eligible for weekly prizes and grand prize drawings. Copies of the book are available at the main and branch libraries, or may be purchased locally from Paragraphs Bookstore, Colonial Book Shop and Kid’s Shelf, or Kenyon College Bookstore.
