Books have arrived for our first book discussion of the spring season, which will take place on Thursday, April 25 at 10:30. The theme for this session is “The Diversity of Families,” and the first title to be discussed is “Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant,” by Anne Tyler. Dr. Suzanne Brown will join us in April to lead the discussion. On May 23, the title will be “Little Fires Everywhere,” by Celeste Ng, and on July 10 the subject will be “Little Women,” by Louisa May Alcott.
There will be no Friday morning sewing lessons with Janice Jenket for the next few weeks, and they will resume in early May.
Sign up now for a “Mom and Me Make and Take” sign craft on Friday, March 29 at 5:30. Choose from a large selection of pre-made slogans and create your own wooden sign to take home. Space is limited to 15 participants, and there is a $5.00 fee for materials.
There will be an OLLI program on the subject of “Phony Numbers and Fake News,” on Friday, March 29 from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. “Figures don't lie, but liars figure." Some people intentionally use numbers to deceive and mislead us; some unconsciously use numbers inappropriately; and some actually know what they're doing with data. This course explores some of the many ways data and numbers are misinterpreted so we can understand what reported facts and figures really mean, separate reality from hype, and tell fact from fiction.
OLLI programs are not free. Fee for OLLI members is $20.00, and for non-members $40.00.  To register for the class or become a member, go online to olli.granite.edu, call the Concord office at 603-513-1377, or email to olli.office@granite.edu. OLLI is a lifelong learning organization that provides a wide variety of activities around the state. Classes will be cancelled two or more weeks ahead of the start date if not enough people sign up, so don’t wait till the last moment if you think you might be interested. We have the spring OLLI catalog available listing a wide variety of programs and outdoor activities statewide.
Next on the OLLI schedule, on Wednesday, April 10, “Both Women and Men Have Excelled in Mathematics,” from 10:30-12:30. Other OLLI programs are scheduled for May and June. 
On Monday, April 1, Steve Hale of Open World Explorers joins us at 7:00 p.m. to present “Bizarre Birds of the World.” With over 10,000 bird species in the world, there are some extreme examples that stretch our understanding of what it means to be a bird. This entertaining and educational program features extreme examples of birds and bird biology.  Examples include the Hoatzin, Kakapo, Oilbird, Standard Wing Nightjar, and more.
