This month we are reading Wilson by A. Scott Berg.

One hundred years after his inauguration, Woodrow Wilson still stands as one of the most influential figures of the 20th century, and one of the most enigmatic. And now, after more than a decade of research and writing, Pulitzer Prize-winning author A. Scott Berg has completed Wilson — the most personal and penetrating biography ever written about the 28th President.

From the scholar-President who ushered the country through its first great world war to the man of intense passion and turbulence, from the idealist determined to make the world safe for democracy to the stroke-crippled leader whose incapacity and the subterfuges around it were among the century’s greatest secrets, the result is an intimate portrait written with a particularly contemporary point of view a book at once magisterial and deeply emotional about the whole of Wilson’s life, accomplishments, and failings. This is not just Wilson the icon but Wilson the man.

Books are available at the circulation desk.

All are welcome -- no registration required!

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.

In the opening days of the Civil War, only a handful of loyal troops
defended Washington, DC.  Unless the city's defenses were rapidly
reinforced, the nation's capital, President Lincoln and his entire Cabinet
faced capture by Confederate forces.  Northern reinforcements arrived just
in time, led by the Lowell-based Sixth Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry
Regiment.  Their journey to Washington had been difficult for they faced
sabotage and armed resistance from pro-Southern sympathizers in Maryland.
Four of these men from Massachusetts who just days earlier were working in
Lowell textile mills or tending farms in the Merrimack Valley were killed
in the streets of Baltimore, making them the first soldiers killed by enemy
fire in the Civil War.  In this talk, Richard P. Howe Jr. will tell the
story of these men and place it in the broader context of the opening days
of the American Civil War.

Richard P. Howe Jr. frequently lectures and writes about Lowell in the
Civil War.  He is the co-author of Legendary Locals of Lowell (2013) and
serves as the Register of Deeds for the Northern District of Middlesex

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.

This month we are reading: The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure

Summary: In 1942 Paris, gifted architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission that will bring him a great deal of money - and maybe get him killed. But if he's clever enough, he'll avoid any trouble. All he has to do is design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined German officer won't find it. He sorely needs the money, and outwitting the Nazis who have occupied his beloved city is a challenge he can't resist. 

But when one of his hiding spaces fails horribly, and the problem of where to hide a Jew becomes terribly personal, Lucien can no longer ignore what's at stake. The Paris Architect asks us to consider what we owe each other, and just how far we'll go to make things right. 

Written by an architect whose knowledge imbues every page, this story becomes more gripping with every soul hidden and every life saved.

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.

This month we are reading Lawrence in Arabia: War, Deceit, Imperial Folly, and the Making of the Modern Middle East by Scott Anderson.

The Arab Revolt against the Turks in World War One was, in the words of T.E. Lawrence, “a sideshow of a sideshow.” Amidst the slaughter in European trenches, the Western combatants paid scant attention to the Middle Eastern theater. As a result, the conflict was shaped to a remarkable degree by a small handful of adventurers and low-level officers far removed from the corridors of power.

Based on years of intensive primary document research, Lawrence in Arabia definitively overturns received wisdom on how the modern Middle East was formed. Sweeping in its action, keen in its portraiture, acid in its condemnation of the destruction wrought by European colonial plots, this is a book that brilliantly captures the way in which the folly of the past creates the anguish of the present.

Books are available at the circulation desk.

All are welcome -- no registration required!

Sign up for this program will begin April 21.
 
With a wide range of musical styles,Deborrah Wyndham, pianest and composer, has been performing ragtime music since age 11 and in this program focuses on the music of composers of the genre who lived from the end of the 19th century into the beginning of the 20th century when ragtime music’s popularity really started sweeping the country.She shares the story behind ragtime being the original American “pop music” as well as being an early form of jazz. Ragtime music is the result of various cultural influences, represented by the different ethnic groups who immigrated to America in the 1800s.At first not accepted by society, ragtime’s catchy beat and unique sound soon won over the hearts of many Americans and Europeans. It is now considered by some as classical music. Ragtime and other forms of traditional jazz inevitably morphed into the popular jazz music of the 1930s and 40s which has influenced so many other music styles in our culture today. Deborrah has given over 3,000 past performances, plays a wide variety of music from ragtime and other early jazz styles to original contemporary music. With appearances on FOX, NBC and ABC, listeners have described her playing as sounding 'like four hands'. Deborrah performs regularly throughout the U.S. Space is limited, sign up required.

This month we are reading: The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman

Summary: After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.

Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.

This month we are reading: Behind the Beautiful Forevers; Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Underworld by Katherine Boo

Summary: In this brilliant, breathtaking book by Pulitzer Prize winner Katherine Boo, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human through the dramatic story of families striving toward a better life in Annawadi, a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport. As India starts to prosper, the residents of Annawadi are electric with hope. Abdul, an enterprising teenager, sees “a fortune beyond counting” in the recyclable garbage that richer people throw away. Meanwhile Asha, a woman of formidable ambition, has identified a shadier route to the middle class. With a little luck, her beautiful daughter, Annawadi’s “most-everything girl,” might become its first female college graduate. And even the poorest children, like the young thief Kalu, feel themselves inching closer to their dreams. But then Abdul is falsely accused in a shocking tragedy; terror and global recession rock the city; and suppressed tensions over religion, caste, sex, power, and economic envy turn brutal. With intelligence, humor, and deep insight into what connects people to one another in an era of tumultuous change, Behind the Beautiful Forevers, based on years of uncompromising reporting, carries the reader headlong into one of the twenty-first century’s hidden worlds—and into the hearts of families impossible to forget.

This month we are reading: Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

Summary: 

Orphan Train is a gripping story of friendship and second chances from Christina Baker Kline, author of Bird in Hand and The Way Life Should Be.

Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer is close to “aging out” out of the foster care system. A community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping Molly out of juvie and worse...

As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly learns that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they seem to be. A young Irish immigrant orphaned in New York City, Vivian was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance.

Molly discovers that she has the power to help Vivian find answers to mysteries that have haunted her for her entire life – answers that will ultimately free them both.

Rich in detail and epic in scope, Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline is a powerful novel of upheaval and resilience, of unexpected friendship, and of the secrets we carry that keep us from finding out who we are.
