APRIL 19: The New York Times bestseller, “The Wright Brothers,” by David McCullough, will be featured at the Adult Book Discussion on Tuesday, April 19, 7:00 p.m. at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street. Two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, McCullough tells the dramatic story-behind-the-story about the courageous brothers who taught the world how to fly: Wilbur and Orville Wright. On a winter day in 1903, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, two unknown brothers from Ohio changed history. But it would take the world some time to believe what had happened: the age of flight had begun, with the first heavier-than-air, powered machine carrying a pilot. Who were these men and how was it that they achieved what they did? Far more than a couple of unschooled Dayton bicycle mechanics who happened to hit on success, the Wright brothers were men of exceptional courage and determination, and of far-ranging intellectual interests and ceaseless curiosity, much of which they attributed to their upbringing. The house they lived in had no electricity or indoor plumbing, but there were books aplenty, supplied mainly by their preacher father, and they never stopped reading. When they worked together, no problem seemed to be insurmountable. Wilbur was unquestionably a genius. Orville had such mechanical ingenuity as few had ever seen. That they had no more than a public high school education, little money and no contacts in high places, never stopped them in their “mission” to take to the air. Nothing did, not even the self-evident reality that every time they took off in one of their contrivances, they risked being killed. In this thrilling book, McCullough draws on the immense riches of the Wright Papers, including private diaries, notebooks, scrapbooks, and more than a thousand letters from private family correspondence to tell the human side of the Wright Brothers’ story, including the little-known contributions of their sister, Katharine, without whom things might well have gone differently for them. Mickey Shire will lead the discussion for the evening program. The program is free and open to the public. Mickey Shire will serve as discussion leader. Refreshments will be served. For more information, call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665) Ext. 243, visit www.knox.net or email communityrelations@knox.net.

APRIL 20: Social class. It’s the 800-pound gorilla in the room that most Americans don’t think about. How does income, family background, education, attitudes, aspirations, and even appearance mark someone as a member of a particular class? As part of the Faces of America film series, the Kenyon College Office of Diversity, Equity and inclusion and the Diversity Coalition of Knox County will present “People Like Us – Social Class in America” viewing and discussion on Wednesday, April 20, noon for a Brown Bag Chat and again at 4:00 p.m. at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street. In this documentary film, people from all walks of life—from Park Avenue penthouses, to Appalachian trailers to bayou houseboats--tell tales that will resonate with viewers regardless of where they see themselves on the social spectrum in this thought-provoking film. The program is free and open to the public of all ages. Refreshments will be served. For more information call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665) Ext. 243, visit www.knox.net or email communityrelations@knox.net. / In celebration of Earth Day, the Annual Plant Swap at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County will be held from Wednesday, April 20, through Saturday, April 23, in the west vestibule of the main library, 201 N.

APRIL 24: As if enjoying a free classic movie matinee is not enough, this month’s Silver Screeners showing of the classic film “Never A Dull Moment” on Sunday, April 24, 1:30 p.m. at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street, will include a special visit with Katharine Weber, granddaughter of the woman behind the music and the movie, Composer Kay Swift. The movie is based on Swift’s 1943 book “Who Could Ask for Anything More?” and is based on her own whirlwind marriage in 1939 to Oregon rancher Faye Hubbard, “Chris” in the film played by Fred MacMurray. The film tells the story of Kay Kingsley, a sophisticated and successful songwriter in New York City (played by Irene Dunne) who falls in love with a widowed rancher during the Madison Square Garden Rodeo. The couple elopes and runs off to his ranch out west leading to a romantic comedy as she tries to adjust to a cowboy lifestyle far away from the bright lights and glitter of Broadway. An acclaimed composer, Swift is credited as the first woman to completely score a Broadway musical “Fine and Dandy” (1930). Her hit songs include “Can’t We Be Friends,” the jazz classic “Fine and Dandy,” and “Can This Be Love?”. She also wrote the musical score for the film “Never a Dull Moment.” Swift is also known for her intense lifelong devotion to George Gershwin and his music. She worked closely and was romantically involved with Gershwin for more than ten years until his sudden death in 1937. Weber will share rare memorabilia, music and photos from the Faye and Kay Ranch, Gershwin, and stories of her grandmother’s creative involvement with George and Ira Gershwin, her decision to run away from Broadway to live on an Oregon ranch for eight years and her return to the East Coast to spend much of her time and creative energy on Gershwin projects until her death in 1993. Her life and collaboration with Gershwin included some of his most productive creations including “Porgy and Bess,” “An American in Paris,” (she was photographed wearing two antique gold cuff bracelets he gave her as a gift for the premier) and other classics. Weber, currently a Richard L. Thomas Visiting Professor of Creative Writing at Kenyon College, is the author of “The Memory of All That: George Gershwin, Kay Swift, and My Family’s Legacy of Infidelities,” “Triangle,” “The Music Lesson,” “The Little Women,” and “True Confections” which will be featured at the main library adult book discussion on Tuesday, May 17. She is also a trustee and administrator of the Kay Swift Memorial Trust which is dedicated to preserving and promoting the music of her grandmother. The program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665) Ext. 243, visit www.knox.net or email communityrelations@knox.net.
