The Wright Brothers

by David McCullough

On a winter day in 1903, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, two brothers - bicycle mechanics from Dayton, Ohio - changed history.  But it would take the world some time to believe that the age of flight had begun, with the first powered machine carrying a pilot.  

Orville and Wilbur Wright were men of exceptional courage and determination, and of far-ranging intellectual interests and ceaseless curiosity.  When they worked together, no problem seemed to be insurmountable.  Wilbur was unquestionably a genius.  Orville had such mechanical ingenuity as few had ever seen.  That they had no more than a public high school education and little money never stopped them in their mission to take to the air.  Nothing did, not even the self-evident reality that every time they took off, they risked being killed.

Books are available at both library branches.

Adults ages 18 and up.

A Healing Hike on the Buckeye Trail

After CW Spencer lost his kid brother Dave to suicide - the second suicide of a close family member within five years - he began his 1,444-mile hike on Ohio's Buckeye Trail.  He followed that with his book, Hiking Without Dave.  Join CW as he walks that journey again, this time with words and photos.  Share laughter and maybe a tear or two as you come along on his journey of hope and healing.

CW resides in Ft. Thomas, Kentucky, with his wife Bonnie.  As much as he enjoyed the outdoor nature walks with his middle school science students before he retired from teaching, it is no surprise that he now loves to hike the scenic paths and back roads of the Buckeye Trail.  Sometimes he even talks Bonnie into joining him.

Books available for purchase.  Open Seating.
