Heirloom Apple Tasting

When it comes to apples, most of us think of Granny Smith, Gala, or Red Delicious. However, farmers once grew thousands of varieties of apples. Today, most of these old heirloom varieties are extremely rare, and only grown by a small handful of farms. We would like to invite you to experience the very special tastes and textures of these native fruits that are no longer available in grocery stores. Join Tammy Coxen, of Tammy's Tastings for a special heirloom apple tasting Thursday October 26 at 7:00 PM. 

This program is for patrons 18 years and older. Registration begins September 25.

Canton Seniors Book Discussion: September 28, 2017

Please join Canton Seniors Book Discussion to discuss: 

"An enthralling novel about love, loss, secrets, friendship, and the healing power of literature, by the bestselling author of The Knitting Circle. Ava's twenty-five-year marriage has fallen apart, and her two grown children are pursuing their own lives outside of the country. Ava joins a book group, not only for her love of reading but also out of sheer desperation for companionship. The group's goal throughout the year is for each member to present the book that matters most to them. Ava rediscovers a mysterious book from her childhood--one that helped her through the traumas of the untimely deaths of her sister and mother. Alternating with Ava's story is that of her troubled daughter Maggie, who, living in Paris, descends into a destructive relationship with an older man. Ava's mission to find that book and its enigmatic author takes her on a quest that unravels the secrets of her past and offers her and Maggie the chance to remake their lives"--Provided by publisher.
