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

Come hear Kate Larson, author of the 2016 Massachusetts Book Award book “Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter," tell us Rosemary’s story. Kate Larson brings Rosemary alive as a girl adored but left far behind by her competitive siblings. She reveals both the sensitive care Rose and Joe gave to Rosemary and then, as the family’s standing reached an apex, the often desperate and duplicitous arrangements the Kennedys made to keep her away from home as she became increasingly difficult in her early twenties. Finally, Larson illuminates Joe’s decision to have Rosemary lobotomized at age twenty-three and the family’s complicity in keeping the secret. Copies of the book will be available for sale after the talk.

Kate Larson is the author of three critically acclaimed biographies. She has been a consultant and interpretive specialist for numerous museum and public history initiatives focusing on the lives and contributions of women in the making of our national identity. Dr. Larson holds two degrees from Simmons College, an MBA from Northeastern University, and a Ph.D. from the University of New Hampshire. She lives in Winchester, Massachusetts.

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

Author Dave Wedge will be at the library to discuss his newest book "The Ice Bucket Challenge: Pete Frates and the Fight Against ALS." While everyone knows of the Ice Bucket Challenge, the viral craze that swept the nation in summer 2014, too few know the truly inspirational story behind it. Pete Frates was a man at war with his own body. A man whose love for others was unshakable. A man who refused to fight alone, and in so doing mobilized a global army to combat one of the most devastating diseases on earth: ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. When disease crippled Frates, the former Boston College baseball star turned tragedy into inspiration. Pete’s story is a testament to the power of love, the steadfastness of family, the generosity of strangers, and the compassion of crowds. Half of the authors’ proceeds will go to the Frates family. Books will be available for sale and signing after the talk.

Dave Wedge is an author and writer based in Boston. He writes for VICE and was an investigative journalist for the Boston Herald for 14 years. His first book, "Boston Strong: A City's Triumph Over Tragedy," written with New York Times bestselling author Casey Sherman, was adapted into the film "Patriots Day," starring Mark Wahlberg. Wedge and Sherman are also currently working on a book and film about the Deflategate scandal and the New England Patriots' miraculous comeback win in Super Bowl LI. Dave has also written for Esquire, Newsweek, DigBoston, Boston magazine, and Noisey. He's also hosted on WRKO 680-AM and has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, FOX, E! and CBS.

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

This is part of the 350 Celebration of the City of Amesbury.

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 Merrimac Hat Corporation. The Merrimac 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 Merrimac Hat Corporation was a vital part of Amesbury's economy. Follow the story of this great American Industry through pictures and explore the reasons that the Merrimac Hat Corporation finally closed its doors in 1971.  We will have hats on display.  Suzanne Cote will be here from the Amesbury Hat Museum.

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, airplaine, changes in fashion, entertainment and social conventions were altering the landscape of people's lives forever.  Mrs. Gordon enterainds 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 Joutnal.

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