This month our Brown Bag Book Club will be reading Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. This is George Orwell’s vision of what our future could be, or maybe some aspects are already here. How does Orwell’s vision measure up to our 21st century reality? This book has surged in popularity in light of recent events. Sales of Nineteen Eighty-Four increased by up to 7,000% (seven thousand percent) within the first week of the 2013 mass surveillance leaks. Plan to join us at lunchtime on Tuesday, September 24th, from 12:15-1:30 PM, unless, of course, you think “Big Brother” might be watching you. For more information contact Information Desk at 624-6550 ext. 319.

On September 5, 1976, the first episode of The Muppet Show aired. The vaudeville puppet show, created by Jim Henson ran until March 15, 1981. The show featured a special human celebrity guest star and was the inspiration for several spin-offs. My family and I adored watching The Muppet Show together. Of course, each of us had our favorite Muppet. My favorite was the Swedish Chef. The juggling meat cleavers and chicken fiascoes really did me in each time!
Here is a list of Jim Henson and Muppet related materials that you can check out from the library. Take a trip down memory lane and visit with your favorite Muppet for old times sake.
It’s not easy being green : and other things to consider by Jim Henson
