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 The Little Girl Who Fought the Great Depression: Shirley Temple and 1930s America by John F. Kasson.

Amid the deprivation and despair of the Great Depression, Shirley Temple radiated optimism and good cheer that lifted spirits and shaped a collective character for generations to come. Kasson shows how the world’s most famous, adored, imitated, and commodified child astonished movie goers, created a new celebrity culture, and revolutionized the role of children as consumers.

Join us for a book presentation with Grant Welker, author of We Are Market Basket: The story of the unlikely grassroots movement that saved a beloved business.  The presentation will be followed by Q&A and discussion. After long-time CEO Arthur T. Demoulas was ousted by his cousin Arthur S. Demoulas, the company's managers and rank-and-file workers struck back.  Risking their own livelihoods to restore the job of their beloved boss, they walked out, but they didn't walk far.  At huge protest rallies, they were joined by loyal customers--leaving stores empty.  Suppliers and vendors stopped deliveries--rendering shelves bare.  Politicians were forced to take sides.  The national media and experts were stunned by the unprecedented defense of an executive.  All openly challenged the Market Basket board of directors to make things right. Grant Welker covered the Market Basket story from the start as a reporter for the Lowell Sun. Books will be available for purchase after the talk.
