Our read for September is "A Land So Strange: the epic journey of Cabeza de Vaca"" by Andres Resendez. In 1528, a mission set out from Spain to colonize Florida. But the expedition went horribly wrong. Of the four hundred men who had embarked on the voyage, only four survived - three Spaniards and an African slave. The men lived with a variety of nomadic Indians and learned several indigenous languages. They saw lands, peoples, plants, and animals that no outsider had ever before seen. Based on the diary of Cabeza de Vaca. All are welcome to our book group. We read a variety of books, non-fiction, fiction, light, heavy. Check each month for our new title.

Author Vinnie Stoppia of Palm Springs, will present his book, "The Austrian Woman", a biography of Marie Antoinette. "Did you ever wonder what it would be like to be a big queen. Maybe you visualize gorgeous gowns, baskets bulging with jewels, and fawning admirers. That sounds dreamy but for the real scoop just ask Marie Antoinette, one of the biggest queens ever. She can tell you that the glitz is the first thing to go." For more than fifty years, Vinny gobbled up anything about 18th century France - in particular, the singular Queen of France, Marie Antoinette. His narrative about the life of this lightning-rod monarch, "The Austrian Woman", is a culmination of a life long passion to recall her story. Join us this afternoon for a lively talk with Mr. Stoppia.

Survivor Theatre Project is a free theatre arts experience that brings creativity, community and performance to survivors of sexual violence.  STP is rooted in an anti-oppression framework to include multiple, complex identities and experiences deserving of expression, exploration, recognition and healing, within the context of sexual violence. We define sexual violence to include child sexual abuse, incest, ritual abuse, sex trafficking, rape, molestation, sexual violence in institutions (such as prisons and the military), on the border and as a tactic of war. Performing is important and transformative as it meets survivors' deep need to break silence surrounding sexual violence - and about what it really takes to heal our culture. In a ripple effect, audience members then take their discoveries, analysis, and actions steps back into their homes, neighborhoods, work places, and communities. STP is blazing a bold, new path on the map of arts and activism.Stp represents a multi-ethnic, multi-racial, gender-varied, intergenerational model of survivor-led collective leadership. Survivors of sexual violence lead our movement, and marginalized survivor voices are centered.Sarvenaz Asiedu, has been in leadership and facilitating devised theatre processes with Survivor Theatre Project since 2014 in Massachusetts. She is committed to sharing this project with her new community. Survivors and allies welcome. The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the mission, experience and performances of Survivor Theatre Project with the community of Idyllwild with the intention of offering a Performance project for Spring 2019. To learn more about Survivor Theatre Project, visit survivortheatreproject.com. To Contact Sarvenaz, email sarvenaz.moshfegh@gmail.com

We will celebrate 200 years of Frankenstein this year, so what better title to read for the month of October. From Wikipedia: Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is a novel written by English author Mary Shelley (1797-1851) that tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a grotesque, sapient creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Shelley started writing the story when she was 18, and the first edition of the novel was published anonymously in London on 1 January 1818, when she was 20. Her name first appeared on the second edition, published in France in 1823. All are welcome to our book group. We read a variety of books, non-fiction, fiction, light, heavy.

Join us as we read through all the U.S. presidents. This month we are reading about Andrew Johnson, our 17th president.  From whitehouse.gov: "With the Assassination of Lincoln, the Presidency fell upon an old-fashioned southern Jacksonian Democrat of pronounced states' rights views. Although an honest and honorable man, Andrew Johnson was one of the most unfortunate of Presidents. Arrayed against him were the Radical Republicans in Congress, brilliantly led and ruthless in their tactics. Johnson was no match for them. In March 1867, the Radicals effected their own plan of Reconstruction, again placing southern states under military rule. They passed laws placing restrictions upon the President. When Johnson allegedly violated one of these, the Tenure of Office Act, by dismissing Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, the House voted eleven articles of impeachment against him. He was tried by the Senate in the spring of 1868 and acquitted by one vote."There are no rules for this club. You may read any book or material you would like. We do offer several books at the front desk if you would like to choose one. All are welcome to our Presidents Book Club which meets every other month on the even months.

As long as anyone can remember there has always been a library on “the Hill.” The first library opened in the Idyllwild Inn in 1920. The first consignment of books was received from Riverside County Library that July. It has grown and moved several times from cabin to shared space with an art gallery to storefront.

Today, after several moves, a fire in 1945, a flood in 1978, several additions, remodels and expansions, the library has recently relocated to the Strawberry Creek Plaza on Village Center Dr.
 
It is a contemporary, bright, airy, 6400 square foot facility with a community room, a study room, inviting Children and Teen areas and a reading lounge with a fireplace. The staff continues the long tradition of friendly, helpful and knowledgeable service to the local community and offers a refreshed and up-to-date collection appealing to residents and vacationers alike.
