Retracing Tracey: a discussion after SWEAT

On Monday November 12 from 7-8:30pm at Columbus Senior Center, join a facilitator from the team behind the New York Public Theater's SWEAT to dive deep into the character of Tracey and key themes of the play. You don't need to have seen the show to participate, as we'll start with a recap and brief performance of one of Tracey's monologues. This will be an interactive evening so come ready to listen, share, and connect the world of the play with your own lived experience. Recommended for ages 16+.

December 4: Let's Talk About Pain Medication

Join us in the Library Annex on Tuesday 12/4 at 6:30pm for a free educational program developed by Wisconsin Health Literacy to help participants obtain a better understanding of prescription pain (opioid) medicine. Topics will include differences between prescription opioids and other pain medications, safe storage, understanding label directions and what to do with used medications. Each participant is provided with a workbook, a pill box, and fact sheets to take home, plus the chance to enter into a prize drawing at the end of the program.

Columbus Reads Janesville: An American Story by Amy Goldstein

What comes after the Public Theater's moving presentation of the play SWEAT in our town this fall? Janesville, a similar story closer to home. With a panel of locals, we will discuss the state of economic development and planning here in Columbus.  Stop by the library to pick up a copy of the book and join in the conversation as we plan for our own resilient future.

Unable to make Thursday? Try checking out Afternoon Book Club on Monday, December 10 from 1-2pm at the Senior Center, when we will be discussing Janesville as well.
