Ted Reinstein returns to the Amesbury Public Library to talk about his latest book "Wicked Pissed: New England's Most Famous Feuds." From sports to politics, from food to finance, from aviation to engineering, to bitter disputes over boundaries, New England’s feuds have peppered the region’s life for centuries. They’ve been raw and rowdy, sometimes high-minded and humorous, and, in a place renowned for its deep sense of history, often long-running and legendary.

Ted Reinstein, a native New Englander and local writer, offers fascinating stories from the history of New England and brings to life many of the fights, spats, and arguments that have, in many ways, shaped the region. Reinstein has been a reporter for WCVB-TV Boston’s Chronicle since 1997. In addition, he is a regular contributor for the station’s political roundtable show and writes a weekly opinion column. He is also the author of New England Notebook.

Space is limited, sign up requred.

This program is funded by the Friends of the Amesbury Public Library.

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

We have 3 guest speakers this year.

10:00 a.m.  Tom Toohey, will present a new presentation on researching your Irish family history.

Tom Toohey’s parents were great storytellers. When they passed away he published their stories in a two-volume book entitled Images of Other Lives. In the 1990’s Tom began to study genealogy in a more serious way. He became interested in learning about the lives of his grandfathers who came from Ireland.  In 1994 Tom traveled to Ireland for the first time. During that trip he started tracing all of his Irish ancestors. Since then he has made twelve trips to Ireland and has discovered most of the home places of his ancestors. Along the way he has had many fantastic adventures. To aid his search Tom joined TIARA, the Irish Ancestral Research Association, a research group that meets at Boston College. He wrote articles for the TIARA newsletter and eventually became the TIARA vice president. Tom is also active in the Chelmsford Genealogy Club. Tom has a B.S. from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and a M.M. from the University of Hartford. He was a teacher for forty years and has done many presentations as an adjunct professor, an educational consultant and guest lecturer.

1:30 p.m. Patty Shorland will include resources available at the Exeter Family History Center.

It will also cover information about using the resources available on the FamilySearch website including online help, the wiki, online classes, the benefits of creating a free account, ways to search the online record collections and understanding and using all of the functions on the Family Tree section of the website. 

Patty has been researching her family for 40 years. Her fascination with genealogy began when she was about ten and a great aunt showed her a small book on her family history. Living in New England since 2004,  has given her a chance to visit the places her colonial ancestors lived and do research in archives from New York to Maryland. She has worked in LDS Family History Centers wherever she has lived and is currently a director in Exeter, NH. Patty enjoys sharing her passion for family history and helping people learn how to trace their own roots. She has a BA and MA from the University of Denver, manages a family business and has 6 children spread throughout western the US.

3:00 p.m.  What's new in Family Search with Lori Lyn Price.

FamilySearch: A Smorgasbord of Opportunities
This talk provides an overview of how best to use FamilySearch, a free genealogy database available to everyone. We will examine several features of FamilySearch, including searching, the wiki, FamilyTree and the education section.

 

Lori Lyn Price, MAS, MLA, is a professional genealogical speaker. She has been working on her personal genealogy for over 15 years and recently completed a Master’s degree in history, focusing on domestic medicine in 17th century England and New England. She loves sharing her passion for social history and genealogy, as understanding the social and historical context in which an ancestor lived really helps bring that ancestor to life.

Space is limited so please register early.

The  side door will be open at 9:30 a.m.

This month we are reading: Being Mortal: medicine and what matters in the end by Atul Gawande

Summary: Gawande, a practicing surgeon, addresses his profession's ultimate limitation, arguing that quality of life is the desired goal for patients and families. Gawande offers examples of freer, more socially fulfilling models for assisting the infirm and dependent elderly, and he explores the varieties of hospice care to demonstrate that a person's last weeks or months may be rich and dignified.

Full of eye-opening research and riveting storytelling, Being Mortal asserts that medicine can comfort and enhance our experience even to the end, providing not only a good life but also a good end.

Through thefts around the world - from Stockholm to Boston, Worcester to Ohio - he tracks daring entries and escapes from the world's most renowned museums.

This month we are reading: The Muralist by B.A. Shapiro

Summary: Entwining the lives of both historical and fictional characters, and moving between the past and the present, The Muralist plunges readers into the divisiveness of prewar politics and the largely forgotten plight of European refugees refused entrance to the United States. It captures both the inner workings of New York’s art scene and the beginnings of the vibrant and quintessentially American school of Abstract Expressionism. 
 
As she did in her bestselling novel The Art Forger, B. A. Shapiro tells a gripping story while exploring provocative themes. In Alizée and Danielle she has created two unforgettable women, artists both, who compel us to ask: What happens when luminous talent collides with unstoppable historical forces? Does great art have the power to change the world?

History Under Our Feet: MA Archaeology/J. Kevin "Quack" Quackenbush

Have you ever wanted to know what daily life was like thousands of years ago?

Now is your chance to get hands on experience!

The Amesbury Public Library will be hosting a program on MA archaeology, History Under Our Feet. Come enjoy this dynamic presentation where you’ll get to see and hold archaeological finds from our own region.

Join Archaeologist J. Kevin “Quack” Quackenbush at the library for a hands-on discussion of archaeology and the ancient peoples of Massachusetts and the surrounding areas. Quack, as he prefers to be called, is an avocational archaeologist as well as a former Trustee at the Massachusetts Archaeological Society and chairman of their MAS Education Committee. He comes not with just knowledge but actual ancient artifacts primarily from the New England area, and many are marvels to see!

The interests and momentum of the crowd will shape the discussion so no two presentations by Quack are ever the same. Learn how ancient man survived on a daily basis, what they used for tools/weapons, what they ate, what they wore, how they worked with fire, and much more.

This month we are reading: House of Thieves by Charles Belfoure

Summary:In 1886 New York, a respectable architect shouldn't have any connection to the notorious gang of thieves and killers that rules the underbelly of the city. But when John Cross's son racks up an unfathomable gambling debt to Kent's Gents, Cross must pay it back himself. All he has to do is use his inside knowledge of high society mansions and museums to craft a robbery even the smartest detectives won't solve. The take better include some cash too ?the bigger the payout, the faster this will be over.

With a newfound talent for sniffing out vulnerable and lucrative targets, Cross becomes invaluable to the gang. But Cross's entire life has become a balancing act, and it will only take one mistake for it all to come crashing down ?and for his family to go down too.

This month we are reading: Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger

Summary: Frank begins the season preoccupied with the concerns of any teenage boy, but when tragedy unexpectedly strikes his family—which includes his Methodist minister father; his passionate, artistic mother; Juilliard-bound older sister; and wise-beyond-his-years kid brother—he finds himself thrust into an adult world full of secrets, lies, adultery, and betrayal, suddenly called upon to demonstrate a maturity and gumption beyond his years. 

Told from Frank’s perspective forty years after that fateful summer, Ordinary Grace is a brilliantly moving account of a boy standing at the door of his young manhood, trying to understand a world that seems to be falling apart around him. It is an unforgettable novel about discovering the terrible price of wisdom and the enduring grace of God.

Registration is not needed: all are welcome

Books are available at the Circulation Desk
