This month we are reading: March by Geraldine Brooks

Summary: From Louisa May Alcott’s beloved classic Little Women, Geraldine Brooks has animated the character of the absent father, March, and crafted a story "filled with the ache of love and marriage and with the power of war upon the mind and heart of one unforgettable man". Brooks follows March as he leaves behind his family to aid the Union cause in the Civil War. His experiences will utterly change his marriage and challenge his most ardently held beliefs.

Local artist and writer Susan Gaylord has been working as a visual artist since the late 1970s. Ten years of calligraphic work were followed by a deep involvement in book arts where she is best known for her Spirit Books and her advocacy of the educational and personal value of simple bookmaking with recycled materials. Susan believes that everyone is creative and that exercising our creativity makes us happier and more fully human. In this talk she shares her 35 years as an artist with the goal of putting the audience in touch with their own creative experiences whether they be art, crafts, music, writing, cooking, gardening, fashion, or home decorating. These lessons about confidence, character, patience, and perfection will appeal to and inspire artists and non-artists alike.  Susan is a dynamic speaker and will have you thoroughly engaged in her talk; the perfect inspiration for the New Year! Space is limited, sign up required!

    Contact: Kim Butler   978-388-8148   kbutler@mvlc.org
   

Sign up for this program will begin Monday, January 5

Local author Martha McManamy will be reading from and discussing her new book. Taking a year off from the rat race is an idle dream for many, but the McManamy family, including their three teenagers, decided to make it happen. "The Big Trip: A Family Gap Year" tells how they put high school, college and work on hold while they learned Spanish in Spain and volunteered in Bolivia, Guatemala, and Kenya. Choosing home stays and local transportation over hotels and rental cars, they undertook a deeply immersive journey of “slow travel,” living simply and experiencing life as the locals do. The teenagers contributed their own creative poems and stories to The Big Trip. A vivid account full of adventures and lively observations, the story also offers a template for anyone yearning to undertake an intellectual, emotional and spiritual journey of discovery. It is possible for families to take a Big Trip and enrich their lives without breaking the bank, losing a job, or falling behind in school. This compelling travel memoir motivates us all to follow even the wildest of our dreams. Books will available for purchase after the program and refreshments will be served. Space is limited, sign up required!

    Contact: Margie Walker   978-388-8148   mwalker@mvlc.org
   

What is fanfiction?  Fanfiction refers to stories produced by fans based on plot lines and characters from either a single source text or multiple sources; these fan-created narratives often take the pre-existing storyworld in a new, sometimes bizarre, direction. While the activities of fans may take many forms, writing stories deriving from one or more source texts has long been the most popular way of showing their passion for a particular fictional universe.  For 7th-12th grade.

This month we are reading: House in the Sky: A memoir by Amanda Lindhout & Sara Corbett

Summary: As a child, Amanda Lindhout escaped a violent household by paging through issues of National Geographic and imagining herself visiting its exotic locales. At the age of nineteen, working as a cocktail waitress, she began saving her tips so she could travel the globe. Aspiring to understand the world and live a significant life, she backpacked through Latin America, Laos, Bangladesh, and India, and emboldened by each adventure, went on to Sudan, Syria, and Pakistan. In war-ridden Afghanistan and Iraq she carved out a fledgling career as a television reporter. And then, in August 2008, she traveled to Somalia—“the most dangerous place on earth.” On her fourth day, she was abducted by a group of masked men along a dusty road.

Held hostage for 460 days, Amanda survives on memory—every lush detail of the world she experienced in her life before captivity—and on strategy, fortitude, and hope. When she is most desperate, she visits a house in the sky, high above the woman kept in chains, in the dark.

What is fanfiction?  Fanfiction refers to stories produced by fans based on plot lines and characters from either a single source text or multiple sources; these fan-created narratives often take the pre-existing storyworld in a new, sometimes bizarre, direction. While the activities of fans may take many forms, writing stories deriving from one or more source texts has long been the most popular way of showing their passion for a particular fictional universe.  For 7th-12th grade.

This month we are reading: Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloane

Summary: The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon away from life as a San Francisco web-design drone and into the aisles of Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after a few days on the job, Clay discovers that the store is more curious than either its name or its gnomic owner might suggest. The customers are few, and they never seem to buy anything—instead, they “check out” large, obscure volumes from strange corners of the store. Suspicious, Clay engineers an analysis of the clientele’s behavior, seeking help from his variously talented friends. But when they bring their findings to Mr. Penumbra, they discover the bookstore’s secrets extend far beyond its walls. Rendered with irresistible brio and dazzling intelligence, Robin Sloan's Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore is exactly what it sounds like: an establishment you have to enter and will never want to leave.

Registration is not needed: all are welcome

Books are available at the Circulation Desk

The Genealogy Club will meet the last Monday of the month. We will offer suggestions for genealogy, offer speakers, and webinars. Everyone is here to help one another.

Richard Howe will present a program on the Civil War.  The tensions that played out in Lowell, which was the second biggest city in Massachusetts at the time, between
the cotton producing interests and Abolitionists reflected what was going on around the country.  This talk can also get into the opening days of the
war when Washington DC was a great risk of capture from the Virginia militia.  That's a phase of the war few think about today but it was a very real threat and it involved many soldiers from Massachusetts.  (Including Captain Follensbee who was from Amesbury).

Suggestions are always welcome!

What is fanfiction?  Fanfiction refers to stories produced by fans based on plot lines and characters from either a single source text or multiple sources; these fan-created narratives often take the pre-existing storyworld in a new, sometimes bizarre, direction. While the activities of fans may take many forms, writing stories deriving from one or more source texts has long been the most popular way of showing their passion for a particular fictional universe.  For 7th-12th grade.

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

ANCESTRY TREES CAN JUMPSTART YOUR RESEARCH
Live Demo. How to upload your genealogy file to Ancestry.com[4] and see just how quickly those "shaky leaves" start showing up. We'll review a
variety of links to documents that may match ancestor profiles. Consideration is given to privacy issues and the reliability of the new
info provided.
 

WOMAN ARE FROM VENUS
Tactics for tracing those elusive female ancestors including determining laws in effect at that time/place with an eye to social history and women's
rights. There will be a pop-quiz at the end. Do you know what the term "feme sole trader" or a "grass widow" mean? Find out in this class session.

7 HABITS OF HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL GENEALOGISTS
Seven volunteers from the audience with work with DearMYRTLE to determine which of these habits are most urgently required in their personal family
history research. We refer to the GPS (Genealogical Proof Standard) as well as creative ways to share what you find about each ancestor.

 WHERE TO LOOK NEXT
Stymied by a genealogical brick wall? Don't know where to turn? DearMYRTLE suggest new places to look for "how-to" advice, worthwhile online content,
and preparations for off-line and in-person research. There are even some new options in certain genealogy software to guide future research. /You
can do this.
