Laurel Library Program
The Laurel Public Library will offer a reading and discussion series titled “Destruction or Redemption: Images of Romantic Love” on Tuesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. At each program a scholar, whose background and expertise offers insight into the author’s life and body of work, will give a presentation on the book and lead a discussion. Programs will include a break for refreshments with time for informal discussion. The series features the following books and scholars:

Nov. 13 - Sandra Christian of the University of Maryland will explore Anne Tyler’s novel “Morgan’s Passing,” in which Morgan Gower, husband and father, lives vicariously through others until becoming involved with another woman and her children.

Nov. 27 - Gail Samis of Salisbury State University will discuss Gail Godwin’s “A Mother and Two Daughters,” a novel about the clashing of personalities of a mother and her daughters following the death of the husband and father whose life had prevented both that clash and the women’s self-knowledge.
