“Footsteps in Time” presented by Gayle Breaux Smith
Footsteps in Time will take you on a journey through France, Nova Scotia, Massachusetts and
Louisiana with Gayle Breaux Smith as she traces her ancestor Vincent Brault and his descendants.
She shares the stories she has uncovered about her immediate ancestors with surnames such as
Breaux, Dugas, Bourgeois, Boudreaux, and Leblanc, as well as her personal experiences piecing
together the lineage of her ancestry. Along with her own family, she also recounts the struggles of
all Acadian families that were exiled during the 18th century.
Breaux’s Footsteps in Time program has been featured at the Breaux de Monde gathering in Canada, at the Louisiana
State Museum in Baton Rouge and also during Louisiana Day in 2014.

The Book Heads will meet on Friday, November 13th at 5:30 p.m. to discuss the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen.
Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is on his way to visit his father when the single engine plane in which he is flying crashes. Suddenly, Brian finds himself alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but a tattered Windbreaker and the hatchet his mother
gave him as a present and the dreadful secret that has been tearing him apart since his parent’s divorce. But now
Brian has no time for anger, self pity, or despair it will take all his know how and determination, and more
courage than he knew he possessed, to survive.

Orphaned during her passage from Ireland, young, white Lavinia arrives on the steps of the kitchen house and is
placed, as an indentured, servant, under the care of Belle, the master’s illegitimate slave daughter. Lavinia learns

The Centerville Branch Library Book Club for Adults will meet on Wednesday, November 18th at 10:30 a.m. to discuss the book
The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins.
Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to
feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason, “ she calls them. Their life as she sees it is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed.
Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what
happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
If you are interested in joining or for more information, please call the Centerville Branch Library at 337-836-1717.

BOOK CLUBS
FRANKLIN BRANCH ADULT BOOK CLUB
The Franklin Branch Library will meet on Thursday, November 12th at 4:15 p.m. to discuss the book Dewey The Library Cat: A
True Story by Vicki Myron & Bret Wittler.
In the tradition of Marley: A Dog Like No Other, this is the story of a cat who was more than a pet, and the amazing effect he had
on the people around him. Abandoned in a library book drop slot in the dead of winter, this remarkable kitten miraculously endured the coldest night of the year. Dewey Readmore Books, as he became known, quickly embraced his home inside Spencer’s
public library, charming the struggling small town’s library goers, young and old. As word of Dewey’s winning
tail, or rather his tale, spread, the library cat gained worldwide fame as a symbol of hope and proof positive that
one small cat could change a town, one reader at a time.
For more information or to register for this book club, come by or call the Franklin Library at 337-828-5364.
PATTERSON BRANCH ADULT BOOK CLUB
The Patterson Branch Library Book Club will meet on Thursday, November 19th at 5:30 p.m. to discuss the book
Dollbaby by Laura Lane McNeal.
When Ibby Bell’s father dies unexpectedly in the summer of 1964, her mother unceremoniously deposits Ibby with her eccentric
grandmother Fannie and throws in her father’s urn for good measure. Fannie’s New Orleans house is like no place Ibby has ever
been and Fannie, who has a tendency to end up in the local asylum is like no one she has ever met. Fortunately, Fannie’s black
cook, Queenie, and her smart mouthed daughter, Dollbaby, take it upon themselves to initiate Ibby into the ways of the South,
both its grand traditions and its darkest secrets.
For Fannie’s own family history is fraught with tragedy, hidden behind the closed rooms in her ornate Uptown
mansion. It will take Ibby’s arrival to begin to unlock the mysteries there. And it will take Queenie and Dollbaby’s
hard-won wisdom to show Ibby that family can sometimes be found in the least expected places.
We are sorry to announce that we are now at our capacity for our Adult Book Club.
WEST END ADULT BOOK CLUB
The West End Branch Library Book Club for Adults will meet on Tuesday, November 17th at 5:00 p.m. to discuss the book
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Scoiety by Mary Ann Shaffer.
As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society born as a spur of the moment alibi when its
members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island boasts a charming, funny, deeply human cast
of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature lovers all.
Juliet begins a remarkable correspondence with the society’s members, learning about their island, their taste in
books, and the impact the recent German occupation has had on their lives. Captivated by their stories, she set sail
for Guernsey, and what she finds will change her forever.
If you are interested in joining or for more information, please call the West End Branch at 337-923-6205.
