Join author ELIZABETH GARBER at the library for a presentation and book signing of Implosion: A Memoir of an Architect's Daughter.
“Implosion: A Memoir of an Architect's Daughter delves into the life of visionary architect Woodie Garber and the collision of forces in the turbulent 1970s that caused his family to collapse. Soon after the family's move into Woodie's glass house, his need to control begins to strain normal bonds; and Elizabeth's first love, a young black man, triggers his until-then hidden racism. This haunting memoir describes his descent into madness and follows Elizabeth's inspiring journey to emerge from her abuse, gain understanding and freedom from her father's control, and go on to become a loving mother and a healer who helps others.”

Kids, bring your creative ideas and get busy with our big box of Legos in the community room. This will be a do-it-yourself activity (not supervised by staff) so make sure to bring a fun grown-up to hang out with you and plan to clean up whatever you take out of the box. We look forward to seeing what you can create!
