Book discussion

I Was Told to Come Alone by Souad Mekhennet

Monday, September 17th at 7:00 p.m.

For her whole life, Souad Mekhennet, a reporter for The Washington Post who was born and educated in Germany, has had to balance the two sides of her upbringing – Muslim and Western. She has also sought to provide a mediating voice between these cultures, which too often misunderstand each other. In this compelling and evocative memoir, we accompany Mekhennet as she journeys behind the lines of jihad, starting in the German neighborhoods where the 9/11 plotters were radicalized and the Iraqi neighborhoods where Sunnis and Shia turned against one another, and culminating on the Turkish/Syrian border region where ISIS is a daily presence. In her travels across the Middle East and North Africa, she documents her chilling run-ins with various intelligence services and shows why the Arab Spring never lived up to its promise. She then returns to Europe, first in London, where she uncovers the identity of the notorious ISIS executioner “Jihadi John,” and then in France, Belgium, and her native Germany, where terror has come to the heart of Western civilization.

Mekhennet’s background has given her unique access to some of the world’s most wanted men, who generally refuse to speak to Western journalists. She is not afraid to face personal danger to reach out to individuals in the inner circles of Al Qaeda, the Taliban, ISIS, and their affiliates; when she is told to come alone to an interview, she never knows what awaits at her destination. Souad Mekhennet is an ideal guide to introduce us to the human beings behind the ominous headlines, as she shares her transformative journey with us. Hers is a story you will not soon forget.

If you are interested in participating in the discussion and need a copy of the book, please contact us at 872.2927 and we’ll save a copy for you.

The summer reading we held for adults ended on July 23rd.
Again this year, we offered tic-tac-toe sheets for the readers to complete and earn entry forms for prizes.  The tic-tac-toe squares consisted of reading different books that got some readers out of their reading box.  Summer reading participants could also earn prize entries by completing any or all of the 15 different activities that were on the "Libraries Rock" activity sheet.  By the end of the seven week program, we had nearly 250 entries.  The following were winners of the weekly prizes:  Shawna Schweitzer, Terry Mason, Fae Beuamont, Colleen Weber, Mary Rundell, and Angie Miller.  They each received a "Libraries Rock" book bag filled with gift certificates to local businesses, a hardcover book of their choice, and a ceramic drink mug.  The drawing from all the entries was held on July 23rd for the grand prize...congratulations to Terry Mason who won the Kindle Fire HD 8.
