Ava's twenty-five-year marriage has fallen apart, and her two grown children are pursuing their own lives outside of the country. Ava joins a book group, not only for her love of reading but also out of sheer desperation for companionship. Ava rediscovers a mysterious book from her childhood-one that helped her through the traumas of the untimely deaths of her sister and mother. Alternating with Ava's story is that of her troubled daughter Maggie, who, living in Paris, descends into a destructive relationship with an older man. Ava's mission to find that book and its enigmatic author takes her on a quest that unravels the secrets of her past and offers her and Maggie the chance to remake their lives.

Take a closer look at Humble during 1940s, 1950s and beyond (downtown, housing and lodging, shopping and dining, entertainment). We want to help you remember a time when there were no freeways or interstate highways; no shopping malls, subdivisions, or hotels, when life moved at a slower pace… Come enjoy the presentation and share your story!

The Human Library
The Human Library attempts to challenge prejudice by facilitating a conversation between two people: Books and Readers. Books are volunteers who have either been subjected to discrimination themselves or represent groups or individuals within society that are at risk of suffering from stereotype, stigma, prejudice or discrimination. Living Books often have personal experiences of discrimination or social exclusion that they are willing to share with Readers. Most importantly, Books give Readers permission to enter into dialogue with them, in the hope that their perspectives and experiences will challenge commonly held perceptions and stereotypes and therefore affect the attitudes and behaviors of wider society.

Human Library
The Human Library attempts to challenge prejudice by facilitating a conversation between two people: Books and Readers. Books are volunteers who have either been subjected to discrimination themselves or represent groups or individuals within society that are at risk of suffering from stereotype, stigma, prejudice or discrimination. Living Books often have personal experiences of discrimination or social exclusion that they are willing to share with Readers. Most importantly, Books give Readers permission to enter into dialogue with them, in the hope that their perspectives and experiences will challenge commonly held perceptions and stereotypes and therefore affect the attitudes and behaviors of wider society.

Photography - Creating Art, Rules of Composition
You know how to work your camera...you point it at a subject...click. You're a photographer! Is it really that simple? Going from a technically perfect picture that is in focus, color balanced, and correctly exposed to an image that captures the viewer's imagination and tells a story requires that you do more than point and shoot. Visual arts such as painting and photography have developed certain compositional "rules" over the years, not by accident, but because they work. Understanding these rules, and when to break them will help you become a real "Photographer". Please register online or by calling 281-360-6804.
