This month we're reading The Time Traveler's Handbook. Have you ever wished you could have experienced some of the most interesting and important events that have helped shape history? The Time Traveler's Handbook will transport you back in time, providing a “you-are-there” front-seat view of some of the greatest moments in the human timeline. Filled with engaging and colorful details, The Time Traveler's Handbook helps you make the most of your “travels,” giving you background information, insight into local customs, and advice on all aspects of period life to make your adventures authentic and help you actually live them. Forget museums and history books—The Time Traveler's Handbook gives you unprecedented access to a wide range of milestones.
Real People/Real Stories looks for those “truth is stranger than fiction” stories. From lesser-known events in history to biographies of the famous and infamous, and from accessible science and nature writing to the arts, librarians will select outstanding titles guaranteed to take you into real places. We meet the 3 Thursday of each month at the Stryker Center, starting at 2 pm. Williamsburg Regional Library will provide titles. If you can't find a copy on the shelves, check with the Adult Services reference desk to find out how to get yours.
