Hello Winter: Trail of the Week Challenge

South Bend’s robust trail system is open all year long, and there are some added benefits to checking it out in the winter. Bare trees mean you can see new views, snow and ice make unique sounds while you walk, and colder temperatures help you expend more calories! If that’s not enough to motivate you to get outside, we’ve concocted a little encouragement for you – Willy Wonka-style. Each week we’ll highlight a trail in South Bend, and we’ll randomly place a golden ticket somewhere on the path. When you find a golden ticket, take a photo with it and post to social media tagging @sbvpa. At the end of the week, we’ll look at all the entries and randomly choose a winner to receive a prize pack valued at over $250!

When a woman—known only as Mother—moves her family from Atlanta to its wealthy suburbs she discovers that neither the times nor the people have changed since her childhood in a small Southern town. Laskar's stunning debut skillfully tackles hefty topics such as bullying racism and terrorism in a mosaic life-flashing-before-one's-eyes narrative. Set in 2017 in a wealthy suburb near Atlanta the novel centers on Mother an Indian-American woman in her 40s with three daughters and a husband who travels internationally more than he's at home. Laskar touchingly shows how Mother just wants to have a normal life with her family and rise above prejudice. Elevated by its structure this is a striking depiction of a single life. Meeting 1 January 25: Read to chapter "In Media Res" Meeting 2 February 1: Read chapter "In Media Res" to the end. Author Devi Laskar will join us for the discussion! Available in print OverDrive e-book and hoopla e-book and streaming e-audiobook.

When a woman—known only as Mother—moves her family from Atlanta to its wealthy suburbs she discovers that neither the times nor the people have changed since her childhood in a small Southern town. Laskar's stunning debut skillfully tackles hefty topics such as bullying racism and terrorism in a mosaic life-flashing-before-one's-eyes narrative. Set in 2017 in a wealthy suburb near Atlanta the novel centers on Mother an Indian-American woman in her 40s with three daughters and a husband who travels internationally more than he's at home. Laskar touchingly shows how Mother just wants to have a normal life with her family and rise above prejudice. Elevated by its structure this is a striking depiction of a single life. Meeting 1 January 25: Read to chapter "In Media Res" Meeting 2 February 1: Read chapter "In Media Res" to the end. Author Devi Laskar will join us for the discussion! Available in print OverDrive e-book and hoopla e-book and streaming e-audiobook.
