Q. — Will shak­ing a Po­laroid cam­era make it de­velop faster?

A. — The li­brary went to Google to find out that you can­not make it de­velop faster by shak­ing it.

BOOK DIS­CUS­SION

The book dis­cus­sion group that meets at the Kent Is­land Yacht Club will be dis­cussing “The Last Bus to Wis­dom” by Ivan Doig on Thurs­day, Aug. 25, be­gin­ning at 6 p.m. Lim­ited din­ner menu and drinks will avail­able for pur­chase. The au­thor’s last novel is a deeply hu­mane comin­gof-age tale set in the early 1950s. It draws from the au­thor’s rich per­sonal his­tory and ranges across much of his sto­ried Amer­i­can West. For­ever the master of col­or­ful char­ac­ters and land­scapes, re­flect­ing the vast­ness and vul­ner­a­bil­ity of the hu­man heart, Doig has left us with a rol­lick­ing road trip filled with both.

Ques­tions may be phoned in Mon­day through Thurs­day, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. or Fri­day and Satur­day, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 410-745-0980 or 410-643-8161.
