Friday, May 26, 2023 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Every Friday, at 11:00 am, on the library’s YouTube Channel and Facebook Page, the library will stream a brand new recording of local thespian, Joseph Coté reading aloud selections from a wide variety of fascinating and entertaining books of fiction and non-fiction.

For May 26, Coté will read aloud from Charles Chapman’s book An American Odysseus: The Long Journey Home.


Summary: The true story of a triumphant journey through a childhood of abuse, instability, and uncertainty.

A young man desires to become a priest but instead becomes a soldier. 

The story progresses to a challenging military career and years of combat, each fraught with its own unique set of challenges and obstacles to be overcome.

This story revolves around a young man’s torturous journey through childhood into the hell of war, and the obstacles to be overcome to bring himself to the journey’s end long yearned for.

What you will read is an exultation of the human spirit driven by determination, humor, and stubbornness.
