Monthly Book Discussion
The Lincoln Public Library hosts a book discussion group that meets on the last Thursday of each month at 6:30PM in the Program Room. All are welcome to attend. On Thursday, November 17th, we will be discussing In the Kitchen by Monica Ali.
In the Kitchen
Gabriel Lightfoot, an enterprising man from a northern English mill town, is making good in London. As executive chef at the once-splendid Imperial Hotel, he aims to run a tight kitchen. Though he's under constant challenge from the competing demands of an exuberantly multinational staff, a gimlet-eyed hotel management, and business partners with whom he is secretly planning a move to a restaurant of his own, all Gabe's hard work looks set to pay off.

Until, that is, a worker is found dead in the kitchen's basement. It is a small death, a lonely death but it is enough to disturb the tenuous balance of Gabe's life.

Enter Lena, an eerily attractive young woman with mysterious ties to the dead man. Under her spell, Gabe makes a decision, the consequences of which strip him naked and change the course of the life he knows and the future he thought he wanted.

With prose that "crackles with verve and vivacity" (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) and "a truly Dickensian cast of characters" (The Buffalo News), Ali's "portrait of a middle-aged Holden Caulfield wandering the streets" (The Plain Dealer) is a sheer pleasure to read."






Friday Flicks
Looking for something to do on a Friday morning? The Lincoln Public Library is showing Indignation on December 9th at 10:00 AM on the big screen in the Program Room.

A young Jewish atheist (Logan Lerman) attends college in 1951 Ohio, where he clashes with both the school's established social order and his overbearing parents' hopes for his future. At the same time, he falls for an attractive, complicated classmate named Olivia (Sarah Gadon). Tracy Letts, Danny Burstein, and Linda Emond co-star. Directed by James Schamus (who also adapted the script from the novel of the same name by Philip Roth), Indignation made its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. (R, 110 min.)
