Library will host adult discussion series


The Canby Public Library will present a free four-part reading, viewing and discussion series for adults called “Pushing the Limits.”

The series will explore ideas about nature, connection, survival and knowledge. Since the beginning of time, humans have imagined and achieved ways to push the boundaries of the physical world.

The café style discussions will be led by Dr. Ernest “Tory” Blackwell, a biology instructor at Clackamas Community College.

The first session will be held Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 4 p.m., discussing survival and the book “Arctic Drift” by Clive Cussler.

The remaining discussions will be March 4 at 4 p.m., discussing nature and the book “When the Killing’s Done” by T. C. Boyle; March 25 at 6 p.m. – “Thunderstruck” by Erik Larson.

The series concludes April 22 at 6 p.m. with a discussion of knowledge and part one of the book “The Land of Painted Caves” by Jean Auel.

All programs last approximately 90 minutes and will be held at Canby Public Library at 292 N. Holly Street. Copies of the books are available for check out in many formats. Free copies of the books will be given to the first 10 people who register for the discussion series.
