West with the Night by Beyrl Markham.

It is a story of a woman adventurer who at one time was a Bush Pilot. The story takes place in the early part of the 20th century.

We meet the 4th Monday of each month (except holidays) in the back room of Applebee's restaurant in Southshore. We read non-fiction books, preferably paperbacks, chosen by the group upon the recommendation of one of us who has read the book. Discussion is lively, interesting, and challenging.

Anyone not a member but who has read the book and shares the interest of the book club is invited to attend.

"HOT TOPICS" IN THE LIBRARY: LWVA POLICY DISCUSSION.

Topic: HOW TRANSPARENT IS ALAMEDA'S GOVERNMENT?

The League of Women Voters promotes transparent decision making in our government agencies. This includes timely notification of all public meetings and hearings, posted agendas and background documents, public access to records (freedom of information), and the active participation of citizens on local advisory boards and commissions. How do Alameda's public agencies rate, and how can we be better involved and informed? Join us, and share your ideas!

Facilitator: Karen Butter. Pre-registration required (limit: 12 persons).

Open to the public.
