This month we are reading: The Other Wes Moore: one name- two fates by Wes Moore

Summary: Two kids named Wes Moore were born blocks apart within a year of each other. Both grew up fatherless in similar Baltimore neighborhoods and had difficult childhoods; both hung out on street corners with their crews; both ran into trouble with the police. How, then, did one grow up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader, while the other ended up a convicted murderer serving a life sentence? Wes Moore, the author of this fascinating book, sets out to answer this profound question. In alternating narratives that take readers from heart-wrenching losses to moments of surprising redemption, The Other Wes Moore tells the story of a generation of boys trying to find their way in a hostile world.

Registration is not needed: all are welcome

Books are available at the Circulation Desk

Genealogy Club meeting the last Monday of the month.  Come share what you are working.  We have webinars, speakers and help each other get further along in our our search for our family information.

This presentation provides an overview of the Merrimack River as an artery of transportation, and show and describes what remains of the system today. Before they were adapted to power New England mills, the falls and rapids of the Merrimack River were serious obstructions to travel. These impediments, and the absence of good roads, drove more than a decade of efforts to improve river navigability. Between 1792 and 1848, nine companies constructed 13 canals, incorporating 36 locks, along the main river channel between Concord NH and the sea or, via the Middlesex Canal, to Boston. Lesser improvements were made by a few of these companies at several more rapids. Additional canals were built by still other firms near the mouths of the Nashua and Piscataquog Rivers, and possibly at one or more industrial sites.  Registration is required.

This month we are reading: Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum

Summary: For fifty years, Anna Schlemmer has refused to talk about her life in Germany during World War II. Her daughter, Trudy, was only three when she and her mother were liberated by an American soldier and went to live with him in Minnesota. Trudy's sole evidence of the past is an old photograph: a family portrait showing Anna, Trudy, and a Nazi officer, the Obersturmfuhrer of Buchenwald.

Driven by the guilt of her heritage, Trudy, now a professor of German history, begins investigating the past and finally unearths the dramatic and heartbreaking truth of her mother's life.

Combining a passionate, doomed love story, a vivid evocation of life during the war, and a poignant mother/daughter drama, Those Who Save Us is a profound exploration of what we endure to survive and the legacy of shame.

Registration is not needed: all are welcome

Books are available at the Circulation Desk

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Author Dave Wedge Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    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.

"Victoria Yule" (aka Anne Barrett) welcomes you into her parlor as she shares her plans for the 1895 Christmas season. Learn the history of many Christmas traditions, passed down to her from "Grandmama and Grandpapa."  She'll read Dickens, display toys and handmade gifts that her family will be exchanging around the Christmas tree, and in her clear soprano, sing songs of the season. Travel back in time to Christmas 1895 with this fun, creative and engaging performance! 

Anne Barrett has been presenting to audiences large and small for over 10 years, researching and developing all of her own material with a focus on creating presentations that are interesting, educating and entertaining. She writes a newspaper history column, serves as Vice President of her local historical society, as well as writing and publishing the society's newsletter, Local Lore. She was also named Storyteller of the Year by the North of Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau for her work in creating and presenting historical context presentations for North Shore Music Theater audiences.

This month we are reading: Brain on Fire: my month of madness by Susannah Cahalan

Summary: When twenty-four-year-old Susannah Cahalan woke up alone in a hospital room, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak, she had no memory of how she’d gotten there. Days earlier, she had been on the threshold of a new, adult life: at the beginning of her first serious relationship and a promising career at a major New York newspaper. Now she was labeled violent, psychotic, a flight risk. What happened?

In a swift and breathtaking narrative, Susannah tells the astonishing true story of her descent into madness, her family’s inspiring faith in her, and the lifesaving diagnosis that nearly didn’t happen. “A fascinating look at the disease that . . . could have cost this vibrant, vital young woman her life” (People),

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 Merrimack Hat Corporation. The Merrimack 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 Merrimack Hat Corporation was a vital part of Amesbury's economy. Explore the different hats that were made through photographs.  The Merrimack Hat Factory closed in 1971.  Suzanne Cote of the Hat Museum will have some of the hats on display.

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, airplane, changes in fashion, entertainment and social conventions were altering the landscape of people's lives forever.  Mrs. Gordon entertains 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 Journal.

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