The Story Library will host a discussion series titled “Americans on the Outside” starting in September.
This series will look at stories about the often unrecognized people in our country who live outside the mainstream of culture.
These novels encourage readers to see themselves through the eyes of fellow Americans who don’t, for various reasons, “fit in.”
The discussion group will meet one Monday a month from September through December at 6:30 p.m. at the Story Library.
The discussions will be moderated by Norleen Healy.
Books in this series are:
Sept. 9 discussion — Bone by Fay Myenne Ng
Oct. 7 discussion — Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons
Nov. 4 discussion — Bronx Primitive by Kate Simon
Dec. 9 discussion — A Yellow Raft in Blue Water by Michael Dorris
The books are available for checkout at the Story Library.

The Wellness Council of Sheridan County and The Food Group are sponsoring a presentation by registered dietician Georgia Boley on how children can be both hungry and overweight simultaneously. Members of the community are invited to understand the effects of hunger and overweight on children and identify ways they can help address the problems. Boley will also discuss with students how hunger can strike any household and ways they can take action in their school and community to feed hungry children and families. The discussion will take place Dec. 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the Sheridan College Science Center room 104. For more information contact SC at 674-6446.
