Ava rediscovers a mysterious book from her childhood,one that helped her through the traumas of the untimely deaths of her sister and mother. Alternating with Ava's story is that of her troubled daughter Maggie, who, living in Paris, descends into a destructive relationship with an older man.

that unravels the secrets of her past and offers her and Maggie the chance to remake their lives. Honey Bees and Beekeeping Wednesday, May 2 at 6:30 pm presented by Harold Keiner of Keiner's Apiary What's all the buzz about bees? Harold Keiner owner of Keiner's Apiary has all the answers! Keiner will present the program Honey Bees and Beekeeping at the Marian Sutherland Kirby Library on Wednesday, May 2 at 6:30. He will discuss the history of beekeeping, hive components, bee castes, a look inside the hive, honey making, pollination, problems for bees and all pollinators, communication between the bees, and swarming of honey bees. Keiner began keeping bees six years ago to help pollinate the plants he sells in his nursery business. The bees keep him busy maintaining the hives. About mid-summer it will be time to extract the frames that the bees have filled with nectar, which they turn into honey. Keiner sells honey and other products from Keiner's Apiary located in Wapwallopen, as well as several farmers markets in the summer. His mission is to keep the bees healthy and help them survive the winters.

Keiner is a member of Luzerne County Beekeepers Association, which meets at the Rice Township Municipal Building in Mountaintop. Everyone is welcome at meetings. You can find Keiner's Apiary and the Luzerne County Beekeepers on Facebook. This season Keiner will be assisting with a field study run through Penn State and USDA comparing the impacts of three different management systems of honey bee health on a farm in our general area.

My American Odyssey Book Talk with Jim Byers, editor Tuesday, May 22 -- 6:30 pm My American Odyssey follows the story of 27-year old Donald Byers as he is drafted into the US Army to fight Adolf Hitler and the Axis in Italy during World War II. From the comfort of his home in Philadelphia to basic training to the battlefields of Italy, Byers documented his travels and his experiences. The journals were lovingly compiled and edited by Donald's grandson, James Byers. This book is not filled with glorified war stories--it's the real accounts of a soldier's fight to stay alive long enough to get back home. It not only details Donald's sobering accounts of a war, it also tells of the personal battles that he endured while attempting to live the American Dream.

Books will be available for purchase.
