About the Campaign:

"Heroes must arise to keep the waves safe!

Nestled on the coast of the Azure Sea is Saltmarsh, a sleepy fishing village that sits on the precipice of destruction. Smugglers guide their ships to hidden coves, willing to slit the throat of anyone foolhardy enough to cross their path. Cruel sahuagin gather beneath the waves, plotting to sweep away coastal cities. Drowned sailors stir to unnatural life, animated by dark magic and sent forth in search of revenge. The cult of a forbidden god extends its reach outward from a decaying port, hungry for fresh victims and willing recruits. While Saltmarsh slumbers, the evils that seek to plunder it grow stronger."
-Summary from Dungeons & Dragons

This campaign is great for beginner players, and lends itself nicely to adding new players as the game and story progress. The library provides dice for gameplay. Come join us!
The MCPL Adult Readers Book Club book for November is “Weedeater” by Robert Gipe. This is the second book in an anthology-like series from Robert Gipe.  It is an illustrated novel about small town Appalachia centering around the characters in the town as they deal with rural life and cope with the opioid epidemic. The book club will meet November 29th at 5:30pm to discuss the book.

“… the Jewell family members continue to live up a holler about as far as you can stick a needle. And some like needles. The plot is loaded with activist, artistic locals, coal miners, multiple do-less folks, day laborers, deaths, betrayals, loss, sadness, love. Folks shoot up. Folks steal. Folks threaten. Folks get whacked. Folks love family. No one wins a “get out of jail free” card or buys Boardwalk. Few battles are won. Like the flying debris and dirt flung by a weed eater, the characters are impossible to ignore.”
---Phyllis Wilson Moore for the Southern Literary Review

ArtSpace Exhibit :
Judy Bradshaw
During the month of November,
MCPL's ArtSpace is featuring the oil paintings of local artist, Judy Bradshaw. You may have seen Judy's work exhibited here in the past and noticed that she generally paints a variety of subjects—from landscapes and florals to portraits. This current group of paintings is exclusively portrait work including one dog whose name is Daisy and "she thinks she’s a people too," according to the artist. The exhibit will remain in place through the end of the month—take a moment to stop by the library, pick out a comfy chair, enjoy the art, and support local artists whenever you can!
In honor of Native American Heritage Month, please join us on Tuesday, November 22nd at 6pm for a showing of "Words From a Bear". This episode of PBS American Masters focuses on the life and work of Native American author N. Scott Momaday. Momaday's book, "House Made of Dawn" won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1969, making him the first Native American to win a Pulitzer. We would love for you to come join us in celebrating this integral work, which is considered to be the first major piece of the Native American Renaissance.
