Carla Baku will speak on her new book, "Chasing Down the Moon," a
novel based on the 1885 expulsion of the Chinese from Eureka. In 1883, a young Chinese woman is sold to human traffickers and taken from her family and home in the mountains of Hunan. In San Francisco, Ya Zhen is purchased by a hotelier from the remote coastal town of Eureka, where she is forced to serve as an indentured prostitute. Ya Zhen’s escape, aided by a small group of friends, is thwarted when a terrible accident precipitates the upheaval of the entire town, and the clock starts ticking for everyone.

Do you want to improve your reading? Do you know someone who needs to learn to read? Reading is essential not only as a leisure activity but for success in all aspects of everyday life. Key areas where reading is very important include finding employment, finding housing, and using social services. Should you sign a cell phone agreement or apartment lease if you can’t read it? How do you fill out a job application without being able to fully understand the job description and employee responsibilities? In Humboldt County, an estimated 13,800 adults are functionally illiterate; they read below a fifth-grade level. Another 23,000 people in our county read below an eighth-grade level. Since 1985, Humboldt Literacy Project has been matching adult learners with trained tutors. Stop by and find out how you can be a part of it!

Meet Eele, a licensed therapy dog, and her human, Joan. Read to Eele, tell her a story, or just give her belly a rub. Reading to a dog is a low-pressure way for children to practice their reading skills, and fun besides! A parent or legal guardian must sign a permission form before children read with Eele. Stop by the desk in the children's room to complete the form and sign up for a turn with Eele.

Instead of the usual Baby Sign Workshop, this month's program leader will share songs and stories that incorporate sign language. Sign language is a fine way to start communicating with your baby even before baby can talk. There will also be time for individual and small group practice on signs based on participants' needs. Children and families can expect to have fun playing and learning together.
