Inferno by Dan Brown will be reviewed by Susan Swarner. Harvard professor of Symbology Robert Langdon awakens in an Italian hospital with no recollection of the past thirty-six hours. Being chased by a relentless female assassin, he and his resourceful doctor, Sienna Brooks, are forced to flee. They embark on a harrowing journey to unravel a series of codes, the work of a brilliant scientist whose obsession with the end of the world is matched only by his passion for one of the most influential classics ever written, Dante's The Inferno. Brown raises the bar yet again, combining classical Italian art, history, and literature with cutting-edge science. Westchester Public Library will host this review on Thursday, April 17 at 2:00 pm at the Westchester Township Historical Museum.
Bookmarks: Inferno by Dan Brown - 2:00 pm

Philomena, as played by Judi Dench, is an elderly Irish woman who, as a teenager, gave birth while working at a convent. The Catholic Church forced an adoption. Now, decades later, Philomena is introduced to Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), a onetime government spokesperson working as a freelance journalist. Martin agrees to help Philomena look for her son.
