Next month's roster of activities at Pine Island Public Library offers topics for all ages.

The following activities are free to the public:

Adult

Book Discussion: "Madonnas of Leningrad" by Debra Dean

1:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25

Debra Dean's first novel, "The Madonnas of Leningrad," tells the story of Marina, a docent at the State Hermitage Museum during the 900-day siege of Leningrad. Marina's clear and detailed recollections of the Hermitage collection and the war are interspersed with her current dementia impaired life in Seattle, Washington as she prepares to attend a granddaughter's wedding. The novel uses the vivid memories of the past to contrast with the struggles of an Alzheimer's victim in dealing with everyday life.
