The Pageturners Library Book Club will discuss “Climbing the Mango Tree,” a memoir by Madhur Jaffrey, when it meets Wednesday, Aug. 28, at 10:15 a.m., in the Community Room. The discussion will be led by Bev Moss.
The book memoir of the author’s childhood in mid-20th-century Delhi, India. Jaffrey’s wealthy family lived in an extended-family compound, and her life was rich in cousins, aunts, and uncles. It was also rich in food, and this book links specific memories with lovingly-described meals, from street food to picnic snacks to full-course dinners that boggle the imagination.
Because Jaffrey’s family was of the professional class, their lifestyle blended Hindu traditions (their heritage, to which the family’s women gave primary allegiance), Muslim culture (which the men absorbed in their work), and English customs (again from the men, but also from the children, who attended English schools). This blend worked itself seamlessly into their food, dress, and family culture–until the partition of India in the 1940s disrupted their lives. The book provides a look at a way of life that will be exotic to many Americans, full of memorable characters and recipes.
The Book Club meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month, excluding December. Discussions are free and open to any adult reader. Check on the availability of books and pick up discussion questions at the Research and Information desk.
Upcoming discussion dates, titles, and discussion leaders include:
► Sept. 25: “The School of Essential Ingredients,” fiction by Erica Bauermeister. Discussion leader: Virginia Johnson. This book is the 2013 selection for North Idaho Reads.
► Oct. 23: “The Majic Bus,” nonfiction by Douglas Brinkley. Discussion leader: George Ives.
► Nov. 27: Best Book Gift,book club members are invited to bring a book and talk about why it would make a good gift.
Some titles are provided through the “Let’s Talk About It” program sponsored by the Idaho Commission for libraries and the Idaho Humanities Council. The book club is also supported by the Friends of the Library.

Patrons who need accommodation to participate in library programs or services are asked to contact the staff prior to the activity by calling 208-769-2315.

A free Harry Potter Party in the Community Room at the library, 702 E. Front, will celebrate the 15th anniversary of the publication of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.”
The book, which is J.K. Rowling's debut novel, was published on 26 June 1997 by Bloomsbury in London under the title of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.” In 1998 Scholastic Corp. published an edition for the United States using the “Sorcerer’s Stone” title. The novel won most of the British book awards that were judged by children, and other awards in the U.S. The book reached the top of the New York Times list of best-selling fiction in August 1999, and stayed near the top of that list for much of 1999 and 2000. It has been translated into several other languages and has been made into a feature-length film of the same name.
The film will be screened in the Shirley Parker Storyroom beginning at 3 p.m. after the party.
Party activities will include a costume contest, wand making, crafts, games, snacks, prizes, and other activities.
Children under 6 visiting the library need to be supervised by an adult or a person who is at least 14 even during programs. Children ages 6-9 should be accompanied by someone who is at least 14 who will remain in the building.
