Altamont Library Notes for Wednesday, September 25, 2013

There is a new display of artwork adorning the long wall of the Altamont Free Library’s meeting room and craft center.  It features the work of local library employee Ann Cartmell.

Cartmell makes quilt collages. This particular showing focuses on Irish landscapes. She is a long time member of two quilting groups, the Village Quilters, and the Train Station Quilters, and she has made a number of vacation trips to Ireland.  Her pieces are usually based on photographs, which are reconstructed using several layers of carefully chosen fabric.  This overlapping creates a vivid sense of depth and texture.

Book groups

For those book club members who appreciate an extended period of time to read and prepare for their monthly get together, here is a long look at upcoming events:

The Orphan Master’s Son, by Adam Johnson, will be discussed on Oct. 7, at noon.

The Light Between Oceans, by M. L. Stedman, gets its turn on Oct. 21, at 7 p.m.

— The Woman Upstairs group meets on Nov. 4, also at high noon.

Food reminder

This month’s Potluck Around the World is stopping in Indonesia.  We’ll get there at 6 p.m., on Monday, September 30, and go home fat (a little) and happy (a lot).
