June Virtual Book Club
Tuesday June 29, 7pm

WE ARE BACK! Our new volunteer (and former Librarian) Ariel is back to lead the book discussion.
 
This month we are reading “The Museum of Modern Love” by Heather Rose.
“Our hero, Arky Levin, has reached a creative dead end. An unexpected separation from his wife was meant to leave him with the space he needs to work composing film scores, but it has provided none of the peace of mind he needs to create. Guilty and restless, almost by chance he stumbles upon an art exhibit that will change his life.
 
Based on a real piece of performance art that took place in 2010, the installation that the fictional Arky Levin discovers is inexplicably powerful. Visitors to the Museum of Modern Art sit across a table from the performance artist Marina Abramović, for as short or long a period of time as they choose. Although some go in skeptical, almost all leave moved. And the participants are not the only ones to find themselves changed by this unusual experience: Arky finds himself returning daily to watch others with Abramović.
 
As the performance unfolds over the course of 75 days, so too does Arky. As he bonds with other people drawn to the exhibit, he slowly starts to understand what might be missing in his life and what he must do. This is a book about art, but it is also about success and failure, illness and happiness. It’s about what it means to find connection in a modern world. And most of all, it is about love, with its limitations and its transcendence.”

  1. I’d like to register for the Geneology class April 27th @ 10.

  2. Hi June, you are registered for Ancestry.com Library Edition. Please email us at on.sarah@4cls.org with your phone number so that we have that in case we need to contact you. Thanks.

  3. I am looking for an organized and meaningful book club for adults. I don’t see any at the library. Is there any interest?

  4. Hi Deb, we have special book discussions throughout the year (1 in Spring, Summer and Fall) but not a book club that regularly meets. There is a friends book club but they run the program and you can contact them at friends.of.HMLOneonta@gmail.com. We do have a special Humanities NY Book Discussion Series coming up on Wednesdays this Fall on the Vote for Women. We will have an introductory meeting on Wednesday, August 30th but will also have registration for that program. We will be advertising for that soon. Hope this helps.
