This month we are reading:  The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachael Joyce

Summary: Harold Fry--retired sales rep, beleaguered husband, passive observer of his own life--decides one morning to walk 600 miles across England to save an old friend. It might not work, mind you, but that's hardly the point. In playwright Rachel Joyce's pitch-perfect first novel, Harold wins us over with his classic antiheroism. Setting off on the long journey, he wears the wrong jacket, doesn't have a toothbrush, and leaves his phone at home--in short, he is wholly, endearingly unprepared. But as he travels, Harold finally has time to reflect on his failings as a husband, father, and friend, and this helps him become someone we (and, more important, his wife Maureen) can respect. After walking for a while in Harold Fry's very human shoes, you might find that your own fit a bit better. 

Registration is not needed: all are welcome

Books are available at the Circulation Desk

    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!

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.

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!

    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.
