Author and educator Richard Markham

These must be the “interesting times” mentioned in that old Chinese curse.  Dick Markham’s slender book, Beyond Extremism, hatred and violence: toward a more peaceful world, offers us a road map through our bewildering civic journey. Please join us in the main living room of the library on Monday evening, October 22 at 6 p.m. to talk with the author about his thesis and how we might tap a deeper energy to correct our course. Refreshments and copies of Markham’s book will be available.

Dick Markham is a retired history teacher, former library trustee, and well-respected elder statesman. His book is a timely voice for reasoned, meditative action in our fevered times.
