The Friends of Crowell Public Library’s Meet the Authors series continues with Susan Rosvall, whose first novel, Silence is Broken, is about a naïve young private on a howitzer crew at Phu Loi base camp, Vietnam circa 1966. There he encounters an illiterate Klansman from rural Alabama who launches a series of increasingly homicidal attacks against him. The Private gains respect among the men when he confronts his nemesis and emerges a true hero during an attack where he saves the lives of eighty men. Swirling with local color and hard facts, the novel reveals a compelling story of survival, growth, and heroism, grounded in the history of the times. Silence is Broken is about self-reliance and personal courage, the metamorphic qualities of war and the healing power of empathy. At the broadest and most universal level, it’s about informed citizenship and the just use of deadly force. Learn some fascinating insights into this amazing story direct from the author on Wednesday November 5th at 7:00 p.m. in the Library’s Barth Community Room.

An artist of many words, however not being able to prove anything using them, Sarko Meené delivers her philosophy of life in colors. Driven by “life is simple” slogan, she still admits life is yet very complicated to simply live it. Through the process of painting she manages to keep things plain. None of her paintings seem to be complete as she zooms into a segment of “life” and challenges the viewer to see what she sees. “Life is not only simple but it is also good” she says “and everything matters”.
All Sarko Meené paintings come with an envelope, the content of which is only to be known by the owner of the painting. Sarko Meené does not present a fixed biography of her creative career, because she simply doesn’t have one.
Light refreshments and no host bar. The event will be located in the Art Salon. The event is FREE, but RSVP is REQUIRED.

Hells Belles Burlesque Presents: Whiskey Royale
You saunter into a dimly lit smoky room. A whiskey, straight up, appears in front of you, as if by magic. The stage lies dark, you sip your whiskey and wonder what lies just behind the curtain. You wait...
The curtain opens. A guitar wail cuts the anticipatory silence. The drums kick, and a silhouette appears, backlit on the stage. Suddenly you're draped with a boa, adorned with a glittery fedora, and all you can see under the brim of your newly acquired hat is legs, legs, legs!
You duck as a rhinestoned bra carelessly flies past you in a blur of sparkles. The rough rock and roll scent of leather envelopes you. You're so close you can feel the heat of the shimmy, the vibrations of the shake, and the the whip of hair flip. Welcome to the world of burlesque, Hells Belles Style...where all your Rock and Roll fantasies come true!
And don't worry, it's definitely okay to stare...
Show starts promptly at 9pm!
