    Contact: Ames Free Library   508-238-2000   info@amesfreelibrary.org
   

Come join us for a discussion on this month's selected book, The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta.

The leftoversWhat if--whoosh, right now, with no explanation--a number of us simply vanished? Would some of us collapse? Would others of us go on, one foot in front of the other, as we did before the world turned upside down? That's what the bewildered citizens of Mapleton, who lost many of their neighbors, friends and lovers in the event known as the Sudden Departure, have to figure out. Because nothing has been the same since it happened--not marriages, not friendships, not even the relationships between parents and children. Kevin Garvey, Mapleton's new mayor, wants to speed up the healing process, to bring a sense of renewed hope and purpose to his traumatized community. Kevin's own family has fallen apart in the wake of the disaster: his wife, Laurie, has left to join the Guilty Remnant, a homegrown cult whose members take a vow of silence; his son, Tom, is gone, too, dropping out of college to follow a sketchy prophet named Holy Wayne. Only Kevin's teenaged daughter, Jill, remains, and she's definitely not the sweet "A" student she used to be. Kevin wants to help her, but he's distracted by his growing relationship with Nora Durst, a woman who lost her entire family on October 14th and is still reeling from the tragedy, even as she struggles to move beyond it and make a new start. With heart, intelligence and a rare ability to illuminate the struggles inherent in ordinary lives, Tom Perrotta has written a startling, thought-provoking novel about love, connection and loss.

The Council on Aging Book Club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 1:00 PM. Our Meetings take place at Frothingham Hall, 15 Barrows Street, N. Easton, MA. We welcome all new members!

Join Patt Gilmore for a photographic tour and presentation of nature mandalas. From North to South America these images are sure to inspire you to get outside and have fun creating.

Patricia is an environmental artist and therapist that works internationally. Her photographs have appeared in national art exhibitions. In 2014 she created the first Ames Mansion Mandala in Easton. Her site specific land art is scattered throughout the USA and beyond. Recently she returned from making and photographing nature mandalas in Argentina. Several images of her earth art creations can be found in her ISSUU book “Nature Mandalas within an Urban Landscape.”

Ever dreamed of playing the fiddle? Here's your chance! 
 
Your instructor, Anna Magee, played classical violin as a school girl, but then discovered the rapturous fun of FIDDLING! Now, she fiddles at contra dances, folk festivals, farmers' markets, pub sessions and even the occasional contest. 
 
What’s the difference between a violin and a fiddle? — it’s the kind of music you play and how you play it.  We’re not talking Mozart here, but folk music with great old tunes still being passed from generation to generation. If you would like to learn about the home-spun art of fiddling, or always thought you might like to try your hand at it yourself, come and check it out at Fiddle Time. If you have a fiddle, you are welcome to bring it along.

The greater journey

Not all pioneers went west.

In The Greater Journey, David McCullough tells the enthralling, inspiring—and until now, untold—story of the adventurous American artists, writers, doctors, politicians, and others who set off for Paris in the years between 1830 and 1900, hungry to learn and to excel in their work. What they achieved would profoundly alter American history.

Come join us for a discussion on this month's selected book, The English patient by Michael Ondaatje.

The English patient

With unsettling beauty and intelligence, Michael Ondaatje's Booker Prize-winning novel traces the intersection of four damaged lives in an abandoned Italian villa at the end of World War II.The nurse Hana, exhausted by death, obsessively tends to her last surviving patient. Caravaggio, the thief, tries to reimagine who he is, now that his hands are hopelessly maimed. The Indian sapper Kip searches for hidden bombs in a landscape where nothing is safe but himself. And at the center of his labyrinth lies the English patient, nameless and hideously burned, a man who is both a riddle and a provocation to his companions--and whose memories of suffering, rescue, and betrayal illuminate this book like flashes of heat lightning.

The Council on Aging Book Club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 1:00 PM. Our Meetings take place at Frothingham Hall, 15 Barrows Street, N. Easton, MA. We welcome all new members!

    Contact: Ames Free Library   508-238-2000   info@amesfreelibrary.org
   

In The Near Enough, Michael C. Keith's latest collection of short fiction from Cold River Press, we are treated to a dizzying array of unique stories. "In one, a tantalizing phrase of music enslaves the universe, another shows us a piece of verse discovered on a rock from Mars which reveals profound secrets, and in another, endless snow prompts a city's entire population to abandon it for warmer climes." The depth and breadth of Keith's stories are a wonder to behold, and if you think he will run out of stories anytime soon, his eight previous collections tell a different tale.

Michael C. Keith is the author of more than 20 books on electronic media, numerous articles, and a growing number of short fiction collections. In addition, he is the author of an acclaimed memoir, The Next Better Place, a YA novel, Life is Falling Sideways, and eight story collections. He has been nominated for two Pushcart Prizes, a PEN/O.Henry Award, and was a finalist for the National Indie Excellence Award for short fiction anthology. Please visit his website at www.michaelckeith.com.

Come join us for a discussion on this month's selected book, One summer: America, 1927 by Bill Bryson.

One summer

The summer of 1927 began with one of the signature events of the twentieth century: on May 21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh became the first man to cross the Atlantic by plane nonstop, and when he landed in Le Bourget airfield near Paris, he ignited an explosion of worldwide rapture and instantly became the most famous person on the planet. Meanwhile, the titanically talented Babe Ruth was beginning his assault on the home run record, which would culminate on September 30 with his sixtieth blast, one of the most resonant and durable records in sports history. In between those dates a Queens housewife named Ruth Snyder and her corset-salesman lover garroted her husband, leading to a murder trial that became a huge tabloid sensation. Alvin “Shipwreck” Kelly sat atop a flagpole in Newark, New Jersey, for twelve days—a new record. The American South was clobbered by unprecedented rain and by flooding of the Mississippi basin, a great human disaster, the relief efforts for which were guided by the uncannily able and insufferably pompous Herbert Hoover. Calvin Coolidge interrupted an already leisurely presidency for an even more relaxing three-month vacation in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The gangster Al Capone tightened his grip on the illegal booze business through a gaudy and murderous reign of terror and municipal corruption. The first true “talking picture,” Al Jolson’s The Jazz Singer, was filmed and forever changed the motion picture industry. The four most powerful central bankers on earth met in secret session on a Long Island estate and made a fateful decision that virtually guaranteed a future crash and depression.
     All this and much, much more transpired in that epochal summer of 1927, and Bill Bryson captures its outsized personalities, exciting events, and occasional just plain weirdness with his trademark vividness, eye for telling detail, and delicious humor. In that year America stepped out onto the world stage as the main event, and One Summer transforms it all into narrative nonfiction of the highest order.

The Council on Aging Book Club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 1:00 PM. Our Meetings take place at Frothingham Hall, 15 Barrows Street, N. Easton, MA. We welcome all new members!

    Contact: Ames Free Library   508-238-2000   info@amesfreelibrary.org
   

The Ames Free Library Author Talk Series is proud to present Ken Liu, author of The Grace of Kings.

Two men rebel together against tyranny—and then become rivals—in this first sweeping book of an epic fantasy series from Ken Liu, recipient of Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards.
 
Polar opposites, bandit Kuni Garu, and son of a deposed duke Mata Zyndu, become best friends after a series of adventures fighting against vast conscripted armies, silk-draped airships, and shapeshifting gods. Once the emperor has been overthrown, however, they each find themselves the leader of separate factions—two sides with very different ideas about how the world should be run and the meaning of justice.
 
Fans of intrigue, intimate plots, and action will find a new series to embrace in the Dandelion Dynasty.
 
Free and open to all!
 
Ken Liu’s fiction has appeared in Asimov’s, Analog, Strange Horizons, Lightspeed, and Clarkesworld, among others. He has won a Nebula, two Hugos, a World Fantasy Award, a Science Fiction & Fantasy Translation Award, and been nominated for the Sturgeon and the Locus Awards. His wife, Lisa Tang Liu, is an artist. He lives in Stoughton with his family.
