Thursday, May 12, 6:30 pm Page Turners Book Club The book selected for this month is The Pale-Faced Lie: A True Story by David Crow. The May meeting will be a special opportunity to talk with the author, via Zoom.
In David Crow’s compelling and graphic memoir, a violent ex-con forces his son to commit crimes in this unforgettable memoir about dysfunctional family relationships, true crime, and Native American culture. Raw and palpable, The Pale-Faced Lie is an inspirational story about the power of forgiveness and the strength of the human spirit.

Dan Haughey dressed as Ulysses S Grant

In period costume and character, Dan Haughey (“hoy”) performs a one-act play focusing on Grant’s early years and rise to Civil War fame as General of Union Armies in the Western in Theatre.
“Troubled by the controversy of the Battle of Shiloh in 1862 and struggling with eulogy of my best friend and subordinate officer, General C. F. Smith, I flashback to reflect on the parallels of my life as a citizen-soldier from West Point, the Mexican War, hard times between the wars, and through the early challenges of the Civil War, including my life in Illinois.” –Dan “in the field” as Grant
This one-act is poignant view of Grant’s private and public life, and his values of serving his Country and promoting unity. This event is free and open to the public.
