Scranton Reads Presents The Maltese Falcon, October 2008



"Sala's Gift" Exhibit and Book Discussion Wednesday, September 10th from 5:30 - 7:30 PM



In 1940, sixteen year old Sala Garncarz was ordered to report to a Nazi forced labor camp. She spent almost five years enslaved by the Nazis.

A moving exhibit of the letters from family and friends that Sala managed to hide and keep safe during those years of suffering is going to be displayed at the University of Scranton's Weinberg Memorial Library this September. More than 300 letters and other documents were donated by the Sala's family to the Dorot Jewish Division of The New York Public Library's Humanities and Social Sciences Library in April 2005.

To support the exhibit and add to the understanding of Sala's inspiring experience, the Albright Memorial Library will be hosting a group visit to Sala's Gift, followed by a book

To register for the program, please call Laura Hendricks at 348-3000, ext. 3043.

THURSDAYS,

The Albright Memorial Library is proud to host the August editions of The Socrates Cafe, the widely popular philosophy discussion forum. Prof. Phil Jenkins from Marywood University will be the facilitator.

August's installments of Socrates Cafe will be held Thursday, August 14th and Thursday, August 28th from 6:30 PM to 8 PM in the Community Room.

Each gathering brings together people from all walks of life and experiences to raise questions, listen to, and discuss a topic chosen by the group that evening.

Socrates--the Greek philosopher after whom the group is named -- exhorted his students to "follow the argument wherever it leads." All sessions are committed to open, respectful philosophical discussion and debate. No prior learning is required.

The Socrates Cafe is free, but please call Laura Hendricks at 348-3000 ext. 3043 to reserve your space as it is limited to 25 people.
