A Gentleman in Moscow

by Amor Towles

 

In 1922, Count Alexander Rostov is deemed an unrepentant aristocrat by a Bolshevik tribunal, and is sentenced to house arrest in the Metropol, a grand hotel across the street from the Kremlin.  Rostov, an indomitable man of erudition and wit, has never worked a day in his life, and must now live in an attic room while some of the most tumultuous decades in Russian history are unfolding outside the hotel's doors.  Unexpectedly, his reduced circumstances provide him entry into a much larger world of emotional discovery.

 

Books are available at both library branches.

Living In a House Made From Garbage

Construction of Blue Rock Station, the first 'Earthship' east of the Mississippi, began in 1996.  It is a home made of tires, bottles, and assorted salvaged materials designed by famed architect Michael Reynolds.  Join Jay Warmke as he shares lessons he and his wife Annie learned while putting their vast construction expertise...none...into action while creating their own sustainable living Earthship in southeast Ohio.  Some of the topics covered include building a plastic bottle greenhouse, building a vaulted straw bale wall, and building a tire foundation.  If you've ever visited the Garden Station near the Oregon District, Jay helped with the construction of the plastic bottle greenhouse.

The Warmke's have been featured on Our Ohio and MTV's Teen Cribs program.
