Wednesday, September 6 at 7pm Galveston: Seawall Chronicles: author Kimber Fountain will speak on the topic of her book Galveston: Seawall Chronicles. Along Galveston's Gulf Coast runs a seventeen-foot-high, ten-mile-long protective barrier--a response to the nation's all-time deadliest natural disaster.  The seawall remains a stoic protector more than a century later, shielding the island from much more than physical destruction. As the foundation of Seawall Boulevard, this structure created an entirely new tourism industry that buoyed the city's economy through war, the Great Depression and hurricanes.  Adapting to the cultural trends and political movements that defined the past century, the seawall represents the unbreakable spirit of Galveston's resilient population and provides a fascinating glimpse into bygone times.


Tuesday, September 12 at 7pm: Friends of the Library Book Club will discuss A Mother's Reckoning by Sue Klebold.   Book Club meets the 2nd Tuesday each month at 7:00 p.m.  Refreshments are provided.
