This month we are reading: Brain on Fire: my month of madness by Susannah Cahalan

Summary: When twenty-four-year-old Susannah Cahalan woke up alone in a hospital room, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak, she had no memory of how she’d gotten there. Days earlier, she had been on the threshold of a new, adult life: at the beginning of her first serious relationship and a promising career at a major New York newspaper. Now she was labeled violent, psychotic, a flight risk. What happened?

In a swift and breathtaking narrative, Susannah tells the astonishing true story of her descent into madness, her family’s inspiring faith in her, and the lifesaving diagnosis that nearly didn’t happen. “A fascinating look at the disease that . . . could have cost this vibrant, vital young woman her life” (People),

Canals of the Merrimack with Bill Gerber

This presentation provides an overview of the Merrimack River as an artery of transportation, and show and describes what remains of the system today. Before they were adapted to power New England mills, the falls and rapids of the Merrimack River were serious obstructions to travel. These impediments, and the absence of good roads, drove more than a decade of efforts to improve river navigability. Between 1792 and 1848, nine companies constructed 13 canals, incorporating 36 locks, along the main river channel between Concord NH and the sea or, via the Middlesex Canal, to Boston. Lesser improvements were made by a few of these companies at several more rapids. Additional canals were built by still other firms near the mouths of the Nashua and Piscataquog Rivers, and possibly at one or more industrial sites.  Registration is required.

Join us for a presentation of the hats that were made at the Merrimack Hat Factory here in Amesbury.  "The Hattery" consists of a sampling of high fashion ladies' hats, men's hats, novelties and memorabilia produced by the Merrimack Hat Corporation. The Merrimack Hat Factory rose from humble beginnings in 1856 to become the largest maker of hats and hat bodies in the U.S. in 1946. For over 100 years the Merrimack Hat Corporation was a vital part of Amesbury's economy. Explore the different hats that were made through photographs.  The Merrimack Hat Factory closed in 1971.  Suzanne Cote of the Hat Museum will have some of the hats on display.

At noon we will have an old fashion tea party.  We will serve different types of tea, tea sandwiches and dessert.

Rita Parisi will present the 1908 Tea.  In 1908 the world was on the cusp of change.  The traditions of the Victorians were giving way to the modern way of thinking.  The automobile, airplane, changes in fashion, entertainment and social conventions were altering the landscape of people's lives forever.  Mrs. Gordon entertains you during her afternoon tea as she tells you about her recent trip to Boston.  Then engage in an open discussion as she shares with you her latest issue of Ladies Home Journal.

Rita Parisi has been entertaining New England audiences for 15 years.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Hungrytown Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Kim Butler   978-388-8148   kbutler@amesburylibrary.org
   

Folk duo Hungrytown, Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson met in New York City, where they had already been performing regularly–Hall as a jazz singer, and Anderson as a drummer for a variety of garage bands. Their introduction to folk music came later, when a close friend entrusted to them her collection of 1960's folk albums and her guitar. Inspired by the grit and true-to-life experiences she heard in these traditional ballads, Hall was inspired to write the lyrics that later became her first songs, aided by Anderson’s flair for musical arrangement. Soon afterwards, Hall released two solo albums, Sings! (1999) and Sunday Afternoon (2002), both produced by Anderson. In the winter of 2003, the duo quit their boring desk jobs, moved to the green hills of Vermont, and decided to pursue a full-time career as touring musicians.

They released their first CD, Hungrytown, in 2008; Any Forgotten Thing in 2011; and Further West in 2015. The couple continue to spend more than half of each year on the road, especially roads in North America, Europe and New Zealand. Hungrytown’s music has received extensive radio airplay worldwide and has appeared on several television shows, including the Independent Film Channel’s hit series, Portlandia.
 
This concert will take place outside in front of the Library, by the fountain. In case of inclement weather it will be inside the library downstairs.
