AUGUST 16: A spirited look at the history of alcohol from the dawn of civilization to the twenty first century, “Drink: A Cultural History of Alcohol,” by Ian Gately will be featured at the Adult Book Discussion on Tuesday, August 16, 7:00 p.m. at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street. Matt Price will be the guest speaker for the program. For better or worse, alcohol has helped shape our civilization. Throughout history, it has been consumed not just to quench our thirsts or nourish our bodies but also for cultural reasons. It has been associated since antiquity with celebration, creativity, friendship, and danger, for every drinking culture has acknowledged it possesses a dark side. Gately traces the course of humanity's 10,000 year old love affair with the substance which has been dubbed the cause of - and solution to - all of life's problems. Along the way he scrutinizes the drinking habits of presidents, prophets, and barbarian hordes, and features drinkers as diverse as Homer, Hemmingway, Shakespeare, Al Capone, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson. Covering matters as varied as bacchanals in Imperial Rome, the gin craze in 17th century London, the rise and fall of the temperance movement, and drunk driving, Drink details the benefits and burdens alcohol has conveyed to the societies in which it is consumed. Gately's lively and provocative style brings to life the controversies, past and present, that have raged over alcohol, and uses the authentic voices of drinkers and their detractors to explode myths and reveal truths about this most equivocal of fluids. Gately further documents the contribution of alcohol to the birth and growth of the United States, taking in the war of Independence, the Pennsylvania Whiskey revolt, the slave trade, and the failed experiment of National Prohibition. Finally, it provides a history of the world's best loved drinks. Enthusiasts of craft brews and fine wines will discover the origins of their favorite tipples, and what they have in common with Greek philosophers and medieval princes every time they raise a glass. A rollicking tour through humanity's love affair with alcohol, Drink is an intoxicating history of civilization. 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), visit www.knox.net or email communityrelations@knox.net.

AUGUST 23: The Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County will host Business After Hours: "A Celebration of 100 Years of the Knox County Chamber of Commerce" on Tuesday, August 23, starting at 5:00 p.m., at 201 N. Mulberry Street. Plans are to celebrate the history of the influence of the chamber of commerce on the film industry throughout history, and will feature a continuous free showing of the newly released short film, "Uncommon Brilliance: Then and Now" highlighting 200 years of business and economic history of Knox County. The program, provided with support by the Friends of the Library, will be held outside under shade tents at the new Sugar Street parking lot at the main library. Decorations, root beer floats, brown and purple cow ice cream floats, popcorn and decorative refreshments will add to the nostalgic and patriotic tone of the event. The program will also toast chamber contributors to the newly created outdoor space at the main library and its use for future library and community events. The program is free and open to Chamber members and to the public.
