Gone Girl

by Gillian Flynn

In a story full of surprising twists, Gone Girl tracks the course of a marriage gone spectacularly wrong.  For the protagonists, it's a psychological battle with everything at stake; for the reader, an excavation of human failings and incredible depths of betrayal...and a mystery whose resolution is every bit as troubling as its beginning.

Books and reading guides are available at both Franklin and Springboro library branches.  No registration is required.

The FSPL Reading Group offers a nonjudgmental, uncritical discussion where everyone who wishes to contribute has the opportunity to do so.

Forms of Hindu Devotion

Come and explore...

 
Practiced by roughly one billion people worldwide, Hinduism is one of the world's most complex and vibrant living religions.  As is the case with any ancient religion, there are diverse attitudes towards and understandings of divinity within Hinduism.  This talk will provide a sampling of some of this diversity by focusing on the iconography, narratives and natures of several widely worshipped Hindu deities and how they inform devotional practices.
 

Dr. Valerie Stoker received her B.A. with Great Distinction from the Religious Studies Faculty of McGill University in Montreal, Quebec.  Her PhD is from the South Asia section of the University of Pennsylvania's Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.  Late medieval and early modern South Indian Hinduism are her principal areas of research.  Dr. Stoker directs the Master of Humanities Program at Wright State University and is Co-Chair of the Religion in South Asia section of the American Academy of Religion. 

Program is free and open to patrons ages 16 and up.
