by Michael ChabonThis nonfiction book is 39 connected writings. ” As a devoted son, passionate husband and above all as the father of four young Americans, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Chabon presents his hilarious and moving memories of childhood, of his parents’ marriage and divorce, of moments of painful adolescent comedy and giddy encounters with the popular art and literature of his own youth, as a theme played on instruments by the mad quartet of which he now finds himself co-conductor.” (from library summary)

In the Erie County library system, there are MANY copies of the book and audio versions.

Cornell Book Club – Tuesday, January 10

The next Cornell Club Book Club meeting will be January 10, 2017, at the home of Rick Greenberg in Buffalo. Rick has selected a novella by Stephen KingThe Body. This selection can be found in the book Different Seasons. The audio version is available under the title “The Body”.  
The story takes place during the summer of 1960 in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine. After a boy from Chamberlain, Maine named Ray Brower disappears and is presumed dead, Gordie Lachance and his three friends, Chris Chambers, Teddy Duchamp, and Vern Tessio set out to find his body after telling their parents they will be camping out. During the course of their journey, the boys, who all come from abusive or dysfunctional families, come to grips with some of the harsh truths of growing up in a small factory town that does not seem to offer them much in the way of a future.” (from Wikipedia)
In the Erie County library system, there are copies of the book and an audio version of the novella.

Men’s Hockey, Cornell vs. St. Lawrence at Lynah Rink – January 21

Saturday, January 21 – Pre-game food & beverages – 4:30 PM

Game starts at 7:00 PM

Lynah Rink
536 Campus Rd
Ithaca, NY 14853

$20 per person

Come one, come all to watch the Cornell Men’s Hockey team host the St. Lawrence Saints on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 7:00 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to make the pilgrimage back to campus to watch Division 1 hockey with the best fans in the country, the Lynah Faithful.

Before the game, we will meet at The Nines at 4:30 pm to celebrate and enjoy deep-dish pizza. Afterwards, we can head up to the game.  Tickets will be at “Will Call.”

A new twist this year will be the “Blue Line Club” (BLC).  The BLC will take place in Newman Gym for the first and second intermission. See map here.  Since we get a large contingency making the trek down from Buffalo, this will be an opportunity to network with other members of the club.  It could also be a meeting point to catch up with someone on-campus as well.  The cool part about this is that if they are not going to the game, they will not need a hockey ticket to get into Newman Gym.  We will have light food and refreshments there.
