Orhan's Inheritance

 

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, October 27th, we will be discussing Orhan’s Inheritance by Aline Ohanesian.

When Orhan's brilliant and eccentric grandfather, who built a dynasty out of making kilim rugs, is found dead, submerged in a vat of dye, Orhan inherits the decades-old business. But his grandfather has left the family estate to a stranger thousands of miles away, Seda, an aging woman in a retirement home in Los Angeles. Over time, Orhan begins to unearth the story that eighty-seven-year-old Seda so closely guards--a story that, if it's told, has the power to undo the legacy upon which Orhan's family is built and could unravel Orhan's own future. Like Anthony Marra's "A Constellation of Vital Phenomena, " TEa Obreht's "The Tiger's Wife, "and Adam Johnson's "The Orphan Master's Son, " Ohanesian's moving debut showcases formidable storytelling talents and powerful truths.

 

 

 

 

Friday Flicks
Not sure what to do on a Friday morning? How about a movie? The Lincoln Public Library will be showing The Jungle Book on October 6th at 10:00 AM.

The Jungle BookIn this reimagining of the classic collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling, director Jon Favreau uses visually stunning CGI to create the community of animals surrounding Mowgli (Neel Sethi), a human boy adopted by a pack of wolves. The appearance of a villainous tiger named Shere Khan (voiced by Idris Elba) forces Mowgli's guardian, the panther Bagheera (Ben Kingsley), to shepherd the child to safety in the "man village." Along the way, the boy meets an affable, lazy bear named Baloo (Bill Murray), as well as a snake with hypnotic powers (Scarlett Johansson) and an orangutan (Christopher Walken) who wants to harness the power of fire. Lupita Nyong'o, Giancarlo Esposito, and Garry Shandling also lend their voices to this adventure tale. (105 min., PG)
