Library News:

Dr. Julia Ying of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps will offer a talk, slideshow and discussion, 7 p.m., April 18, upstairs at Mesa Public Library.

Ying is one of thousands of trained Climate Reality Leaders from over 135 countries trained by Climate Reality founder and Chairman Al Gore. She retired from General Medical Practice in Sydney, Australia, and is a happy grandmother to five grandchildren. She now lives in Los Alamos. She is passionate about taking care of Mother Earth to preserve the beauty of nature, which she loves, and to know her grandchildren can grow up in safe, stable and sustainable world.

She is hoping to engage the community in a discussion following the talk. Climate Reality presentations educate people about climate change and build local networks of climate activists who work in their own communities and countries demanding solutions. The mission of the Climate Reality project is to catalyze a global solution to the climate crisis by making urgent action a necessity across every level of society.

The Authors Speak Series is a monthly event featuring local and regional authors speaking about their writing on a variety of subjects such as local and state history, travel, outdoor activities, fiction, Native American history and culture, poetry and more. The series is funded by the Friends of the Los Alamos County Library System. The talks are free and begin at 7 p.m., on the third Thursday of each month, followed by the opportunity to meet the authors and enjoy refreshments.

There will be a second talk in the Authors Speak Series in April, when beloved Santa Fe mystery author Anne Hillerman talks about her latest book “The Tale Teller” 7 p.m. April 24 in Fuller Lodge. The book was just released on April 9, and is the fourth in her series of mysteries, which build upon the books written by her famous father Tony Hillerman.
