Roseburg Public Library is your home for lifelong learning this fall.
First up is our Author Discussion Group, which will connect on Zoom at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 1 to talk about Willa Cather. Participants are invited to read anything by or about the early 20th century writer and share their reading experiences.
Then, thanks to the work of former AmeriCorps participant Lydia Rathe, the library will host a number of subject matter experts for teens and adults to enjoy.
At 6:30 p.m. Sept. 15 at the library, Larry Broeker, retired geologist from Umpqua National Forest, will present a slideshow on Nickel Mountain mining and smelting operations in Douglas County.
At 6:30 p.m. Sept. 22 on Facebook Live, foraging expert Jordan Weiss will share information about mushrooms of Oregon, including when and where to find them, whether you should pick or observe them, their ecological niches and a few delicious recipes.
At 6:30 p.m. Oct. 6 on Facebook Live, author Glen Erik Hamilton will talk about his Van Shaw thriller series set in the Pacific Northwest. Hamilton will encourage questions about his writing and publishing journey that may help prospective writers.
At 6:30 p.m. Nov. 17 on Facebook Live, Oregon author and Pulitzer Prize finalist Sierra Crane Murdoch will discuss her book “Yellow Bird: Oil, Murder, and a Woman’s Search for Justice in Indian Country.”
Finally, consider joining one of the library’s monthly book groups. The Online Book Group meets on Zoom at 6:30 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month, and the Silent Book Group meets in person at 6:30 p.m. the last Thursday of each month. In August, the group will gather at the Stewart Park Butterfly Garden, and beginning in September, meetings will move the library.
