Lizzie Linn Casanave has been teaching Philosophy for over 10 years. She received her BA in Philosophy/Religion and World Perspectives and her MA in Critical and Creative Thinking. She is also the Study Abroad Short Course Coordinator at NECC. She currently teaches Practical Logic, Introduction to Philosophy, Introduction to Ethics and First Year Seminar. Her curriculum also includes a workshop on “The Science of Happiness” which looks at happiness through the lens of positive psychology.

Be Happy! The Science of Happiness and How to be Happier

Do you ever find yourself wishing you could feel happier? Many of us do and we think we will feel happier as a result of something – such as finding a new job, finishing a project, losing 10 pounds, etc. However, psychologists and neurologists are now realizing that happiness can be more readily achieved through changing the way we think. Lizzie Linn Casanave, professor of philosophy at NECC, will explain this revolutionary concept and provide you with practical tools for achieving this new mindset.

    Contact: Beth Safford   978-887-6352   esafford@boxfordlibrary.org
   

The Boxford Library welcomes Grant Welker, author of We are Market Basket,  Winner of the 800-CEO-READ award for best general business book of the year.

What if a company were so treasured and trusted that people literally took to the streets--by the thousands--to save it? That company is Market Basket.

With its arresting firsthand accounts from the streets and executive suites, We Are Market Basket is as inspiring as it is instructive. What is it about Market Basket and its leader that provokes such ferocious loyalty? How does a company spread across three states maintain a culture that embraces everyone--from cashier to customer--as family? Can a company really become an industry leader by prioritizing stakeholders over shareholders?

Set against a backdrop of bad blood and corporate greed, We Are Market Basket is, above all, a page-turner that chronicles the epic rise, fall, and redemption of this iconic and uniquely American company. 

Copies will be available for sale by the author.

Join us for a discussion of Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty.

 

*Starred Review* It begins with a murder. It's not clear who was killed, but it was definitely someone at the Audrey and Elvis Trivia Night fund-raiser at Piriwee Public School on the coast of Australia. Back up six months, to when Madeline Mackenzie celebrated her fortieth birthday with kindergarten orientation for her youngest daughter, Chloe. She runs into the gorgeous, if spacey, Celeste White and her twin boys; new kid Ziggy Chapman and his mom, shy, jumpy, Jane; and, unfortunately, her ex-husband and his New Age wife, Bonnie, and their daughter, Skye. When a little girl accuses Ziggy of choking her, the class moms begin to divide. As antibullying fervor escalates, Jane grows closer to Madeline, with whom she shares her terrible secret, and Celeste, who is hiding an insidious secret of her own, not that she will admit it. What starts as a send-up of suburban helicopter parenting turns darker as the pages flip by, building to a tense climax at Trivia Night, where one too many fizzy pink cocktails leads to . . . well, murder. Funny and thrilling, page-turning but with emotional depth, Big Little Lies is a terrific follow-up to The Husband's Secret (2013). Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

 

Book discussions are held at the Library on the third Wednesday of each month from 6:30 to 7:45 pm. Books are available one month prior to the discussion. You may pick up books at the previous meeting, or you may get them at the Circulation Desk any time the library is open. All book choices are tentative, based on the availability of multiple copies. No registration is necessary and new members are always welcome!

What do you get when you cross a cookbook with a book group?  A Cookbook Club, of course! Join us for a special meeting featuring  "Feasting with Recipes Then and Now: An Exploration of Recipes From 1910," a slide presentation and cooking demonstration with tasting.

The modern movement of eating locally grown and raised seasonal fare has its roots deeply planted in our historic kitchens. “Eating locally” and “eating seasonally” have become fashionable terms. As with most things food trends change and the historical effects of large scale farming and manufacturing on our recipes and food preparation is worth exploring. Join Creative Feast chef Liz Barbour as she explores our modern journey back to the local farm and your great-grand mother’s kitchen to learn why we have moved our food preparation so far from home. Enjoy a cooking demonstration of some historic recipes and learn how we can alter them for today’s shopping and palate. Enjoy a cooking demonstration of two delicious recipes and samples. 

Registration is required.  This event is free and open to the public.

*All meetings take place in Meeting Room 1 at Town Hall/Boxford Town Library(7A Spofford Road, Boxford). For more information or to tell us which recipe you're preparing, please contact Beth Safford (978-887-7323, esafford@boxfordlibrary.org)

Join us for a discussion of Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel.

"An audacious, darkly glittering novel about art, fame, and ambition set in the eerie days of civilization's collapse, from the author of three highly acclaimed previous novels. One snowy night a famous Hollywood actor slumps over and dies onstage during a production of King Lear. Hours later, the world as we know it begins to dissolve. Moving back and forth in time-from the actor's early days as a film star to fifteen years in the future, when a theater troupe known as the Traveling Symphony roams the wasteland of what remains-this suspenseful, elegiac, spellbinding novel charts the strange twists of fate that connect five people: the actor, the man who tried to save him, the actor's first wife, his oldest friend, and a young actress with the Traveling Symphony, caught in the crosshairs of a dangerous self-proclaimed prophet. Sometimes terrifying, sometimes tender, Station Eleven tells a story about the relationships that sustain us, the ephemeral nature of fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it"-- Provided by publisher.

Join us for a discussion of A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Husseini.

*Starred Review* Hosseini's follow-up to his best-selling debut, The Kite Runner (2003) views the plight of Afghanistan during the last half-century through the eyes of two women. Mariam is the illegitimate daughter of a maid and a businessman, who is given away in marriage at 15 to Rasheed, a man three times her age; their union is not a loving one. Laila is born to educated, liberal parents in Kabul the night the Communists take over Afghanistan. Adored by her father but neglected in favor of her older brothers by her mother, Laila finds her true love early on in Tariq, a thoughtful, chivalrous boy who lost a leg in an explosion. But when tensions between the Communists and the mujahideen make the city unsafe, Tariq and his family flee to Pakistan. A devastating tragedy brings Laila to the house of Rasheed and Mariam, where she is forced to make a horrific choice to secure her future. At the heart of the novel is the bond between Mariam and Laila, two very different women brought together by dire circumstances. Unimaginably tragic, Hosseini's magnificent second novel is a sad and beautiful testament to both Afghani suffering and strength. Copyright 2007 Booklist Reviews.
