DALLAS — The following events are scheduled by the Back Mountain Memorial Library.

· Hurricane Agnes Presentation — Wednesday, Oct 25, at 7 p.m. Author Bryan Glahn will present a program on his book, “Hurricane Agnes.” Although history records the hurricane that struck northeastern Pennsylvania in June 1972 as “Agnes,” residents of the Wyoming Valley affected by the storm and the resulting damage simply refer to it as “the flood.” As the Susquehanna River rose to over 40 feet and left her banks, citizens could do nothing but watch as their lives were forever changed. Glahn, born in Kingston, grew up with stories of the flood. With images culled from family and friends, as well as their first-person accounts, he retells the story of Agnes with the words and images of those who lived it. Call the library to register.

· Book Discussion — Thursday, Oct 19, Thursday Morning Book Discussion group will meet to discuss, “Hidden Figures” by Margaret Lee Shetterly. New members are welcome to attend.

Children’s Room
