A Gentleman in Moscow
By Amor Towles – Led by Carol Mitchell
In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin. Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are
unfolding outside the hotel’s doors.
Origani Pop-Up Cards
Sunday, November 18 at 2pm – 4pm
This season we will be folding only very simple folds, but we’ll make them into pop‑ups! Folding will take place only during the first 20 minutes, so please come early. A limited number of pre-folded models will be provided for those only want to learn how to make the different pop-ups. All ages are welcome, but children 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult. This program and all materials are provided free, thanks to The Friends of the Joshua Hyde Public Library.”
