This event is open to ages 18 and up. The discussion will center around themes of togetherness, human connection, and how to overcome social dividers like discrimination, racism, or poverty. Library Assistant Zachary Harris will be book talking Redbone by Christian Staebler.

Beyond the Pale is a monthly book discussion group that reads a variety of graphic novels. The discussions are held at Mulligan's Gaming Pub (308 East Main Street). They meet on the fourth Thursday of each month.

"An intriguing, historically accurate telling of the high-flying career of rock ‘n’ roll pioneers and talented brothers Pat and Lolly Vegas, as they influenced The Doors, jammed with Jimmy Hendrix before he was “Jimi,” and took the 1960s Sunset Strip by storm. Written by Christian Staebler and Sonia Paoloni in cooperation of the Vegas family and illustrated by Thibault Balahy, Redbone uncovers key pieces of American history and the powerful story of the Native American civil rights movement, from the creation of the first rock ‘n’ roll band made up of all Native Americans, to the incorporation of tribal beats into chart-topping rock music and popular culture, to the members of the band taking a stand for their ancestry over continued commercial reward."

No registration required. Call Adult Services at (423) 434-4454 for more information, help finding a copy of Redbone, or recommendations for the book talk.
