Here is some info about the book: "Two decades after Portuguese novelist and Nobel Laureate José Saramago shocked the religious world with his novel The Gospel According to Jesus Christ, he has done it again with Cain, a satire of the Old Testament. Written in the last years of Saramago's life, it tackles many of the moral and logical non-sequiturs created by a wilful, authoritarian God, and forms part of Saramago's long argument with religion".

2. On Sunday, January 8 - Dennis Gaffney will share a series of stories from the Civil War and then sign his book "The Civil War: Seven Day Scholar Exploring History One Week at at Time".

This will take place at the Albany Institute of Art at 2pm.
