Special Events


Lafayette, Moraga and Orinda Libraries present:

Lamorinda Reads! 2013 The Lamorinda Libraries are thrilled to present the 2013 Lamorinda Reads book, A Hologram for the King by acclaimed Bay Area author Dave Eggers. Talking about books with friends, family, and neighbors promotes reading, encourages the exchange of ideas, stimulates critical thinking, and sparks public conversation. One City, One Book programs are designed to foster community discussion about books by encouraging an entire community to read the same book at the same time, or, in our case, three communities at one time.

Orinda Library Hours Mon–Thurs 10:00 am–8:00 pm Fri–Sat 10:00 am–6:00 pm Sun 1:00 pm–5:00 pm

Thanks to the generosity of the Orinda Community

All beginning January 15 and culminating in An Evening with Dave Eggers, February 28, 2013.

For more information—One City/One Book tab, www.ccclib.org or contact the Orinda Library. Sponsored by Friends of the Lafayette, Moraga & Orinda Libraries and several generous donors.

History of European Civilization James Hadley

These popular multi-media lecture series provide a grand tour of European civilization. The lectures put the great creative accomplishments of the period in a context such that the connections between them and the history of which they are a part of may be understood. The visual arts, music, literature, and history are all here, treated from a thoroughly interdisciplinary point of view. Extensive use is made of slides, literary excerpts, and recordings.

Dr. Jerry Bryant

Dr. Bryant taught English and American Literature at California State University, East Bay, for some 30 years before his retirement. He has been teaching at the Orinda Community Center for several years. Gustave Flaubert and His War Against the Middle Class

Unlike Balzac, Flaubert felt a real animosity against the French middle class in the mid-nineteenth century—their materialism, their greed, their vulgarity (as he saw it), and especially their pious refusal to educate girls in the realities of the male world that left them unprotected against the wiles of predatory men, and victims of their dreams of romantic fulfillment.

Called the founder of Naturalism, Zola wrote voluminously with the idea of making his novels a kind of scientific experiment, setting his characters in an environment or social system, and then resolving the question of temperament and environment mathematically, giving us the idea his novels are dryer and more mechanical than they are in the reading.

How much do your children and grandchildren know of your family history? Knowing our family’s stories is the manual for family membership.

We will learn how to write our stories in fun and interesting ways, to capture the interest of those who come after.
