Discussion Club, Friday the 24th of July

Today our topic at the English Speaking Club was "Goodbyes". Our moderator during many Discussion Club sessions, our friend Mr. Diptajit Basak is leaving Ukraine soon. So, he offered the participants to share their ideas and feelings on the "Goodbye" issue. Different approaches to this sensitive topic were being discussed. And Diptajit invited our guests to take part in some true-to-life activities concerning the topic. For example, to write a goodbye letter on a suggested occasion. At the end of the meeting the best letter was chosen. And we present it for you in this album.

The American Library is very grateful to Diptajit for being a part of our team during this year.
Dear Diptajit, we have to say goodbye, but we hope to see you again :)

Book of the Week - "On Painfully Proper Weddings" by Judith Martin

Judith Martin, the doyenne of American etiquette experts, the woman who Cosmopolitan describes as "opinionated, astringent, and hilarious", and who People magazine says writes "as if she has access to the stone tablets that Moses mislaid", now turns her undivided attention to weddings. Subjects range from the engagement, the shower, and the invitations to the wedding party, the gifts, the reception, and the aftermath - advice that will make the run-up to the big day more pleasant for one and all, including the bride herself.


Book Choice - World Population Day

As the world population edged to 7 billion people in 2011 (up from 2.5 billion in 1950), it has had profound implications for development. In 1989, in its decision 89/46, the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme recommended that, in order to focus attention on the urgency and importance of population issues in the context of overall development plans and programmes and the need to find solutions for these issues, 11 July should be observed by the international community as World Population Day. The theme for 2015 World Population Day is Vulnerable Populations in Emergencies. This week we picked books on global population issues.
