Saturday Movie – Maya the Bee 2: The Honey Games

Saturday, May 25, 2:30 (85 min., PG)

With the summer harvest done and the anticipated Honey Games beginning, Maya and her hive are abuzz with excitement. Instead of being invited to take part in the Buzztropolis games by the Empress, she orders Maya’s hive to give up half of their honey for the athletes. Maya arrives at Buzztropolis to protest but things get sticky. The Empress then decrees: if Maya wins, the hive keeps all of their honey but if Maya loses, their honey will be hers. With the fate of the hive at stake, Maya and her team must learn to work and trust each other.

Spring Book Club – When We Left Cuba by Chanel Cleeton

Thursday, May 30, 7:00

The Cuban Revolution took everything from sugar heiress Beatriz Perez–her family, her people, her country. Recruited by the CIA to infiltrate Fidel Castro’s inner circle and pulled into the dangerous world of espionage, Beatriz is consumed by her quest for revenge and her desire to reclaim the life she lost.

As the Cold War swells like a hurricane over the shores of the Florida Strait, Beatriz is caught between the clash of Cuban American politics and the perils of a forbidden affair with a powerful man driven by ambitions of his own. When the ever-changing tides of history threaten everything she has fought for, she must make a choice between her past and future–but the wrong move could cost Beatriz everything–not just the island she loves, but also the man who has stolen her heart.

Register beginning on Wednesday, May 1, and pick up your book to get started reading!  Enjoy a great discussion and prizes too!  We’ll see you there!
