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.

Friends Membership Month Event

Join us to hear from Edith Maxwell author of Delivering the Truth.

Amesbury author EDITH MAXWELL is the author of four distinct “cozy” mystery series. Cozies are mystery novels without graphic violence often set in small, tight knit communities. Debuting in 2016, the Quaker Midwife Mystery Series is set in Amesbury of the 1880s. In the first book, Delivering the Truth, unconventional Quaker midwife Rose Carroll becomes a prime suspect when her stolen knitting needle is used to kill a difficult carriage factory manager, son of the owner, after the factory itself has been hit by an arsonist in April of 1888. Rose’s elder and mentor is the actual Quaker poet and abolitionist John Greenleaf Whittier, who lived in Amesbury and attended Amesbury Friends Meeting.

A mother, world traveler, and former technical writer, Edith lives in an antique house with her beau and three cats in Amesbury, Massachusetts.

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. 

Registration is not needed: all are welcome

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

Sign up for this program will begin June 1.

This program was partially funded by a grant from the Amesbury Cultural Council.

Too Human hail from New York and they cover jazz standards from the American Songbook, but with a fresh interpretation that brings new life to those classic songs. Their songwriting influences are Paul Simon, Smokey Robinson, Joni Mitchell, Buck Owens, Duke Ellington, Thom Bell, Carole King, Cole Porter and the Gershwins - from jazz and blues to pop to R&B. With vocals, guitar, percussion and, on occasion, upright bass they have a jazzy/bluesy feel with a lot of heart. Ellen's earthy voice combines perfectly with Roger's unusual percussion style and stirring vocals. Sweet harmonies, unusual arrangements and Roger's famous mouth trombone are the musical elements that frame their performance. But what drives their work is their on-stage chemistry. High quality musicianship with humor and passion, totally in sync with each other, they create a strong and intimate atmosphere.

They have opened for or shared the stage with 10,000 Maniacs, and Livingston Taylor; some past performance highlights include the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Mechanics Hall in Worcester, MA, The Bottom Line in NYC, Bushnell Theater in Hartford, CT and Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY.

Weather permitting, this concert will take place in front of the library. Sign up required!

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.

Sign up for this program will begin June 15.

Join local balladeer, poet, and song writer John Perrault for this great interactive history program. Based on his recent book and CD of the same title, John Perrault's program celebrates in story and song eight great Americans—women and men—who carried the values of the Declaration forward into our lives.  Through the medium of ballads, John traces Jefferson’s vision as it dramatically broadens with Lincoln’s reading, and gives impetus to abolitionism and women’s rights. Beginning with Thomas Jefferson, John presents an overview of the evolution of the fundamental ideals of the Republic with commentary and ballads on Jefferson, Harriet Tubman, Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Thoreau, Ida B. Wells, and Eleanor Roosevelt.  He shows how each of these figures overcome monumental obstacles in the pursuit of liberty and equality. John has performed all over New England including The New England Folk Festival, The Maine Festival, The Prescott Park Arts Festival, Chautauqua, Writers' Day for the New Hampshire Writers' Project, The Maine Writers Conference, and The Seacoast Writers Conference. This program will take place after hours, please enter through the ramp door; doors will open at 6:45. Space is limited, sign up required.
