Shunk will demystify woodpecker feeding, courtship, and nesting behaviors, including reasons why woodpeckers pound on houses and what we can do about it.

Beethoven

Beethoven

Beethoven

Beethoven

When he was 12 years old, Dr. Gerhard von Bruening saw his father’s friend, Ludwig van Beethoven, for the first time and thought the great (albeit ill-tempered) composer was a derelict. He didn’t expect a musical genius to have disheveled clothes and sprocketing hair. Then Gerhard studied under the master and learned otherwise. Beethoven tells story of Ludwig through Gerhard’s eyes.

Past Event

Kiersten White: The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein

For the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, read and discuss The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White. Elizabeth Lavenza hasn’t had a proper meal in weeks. Her thin arms are covered in bruises from her “caregiver,” and she is on the verge of being thrown into streets. She is brought to home of Victor Frankenstein, an unsmiling, solitary boy who has everything, except a friend. Soon she and Victor are inseparable, but her new life comes at a price.
