What!? Another book about WWII and the Nazis? Hold onto your hats, Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown actually follows the depression era determinism of 8 young men who succeed against all odds to win a gold medal in rowing at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. These are the sons of farmers, fishermen, and loggers from the Pacific Northwest, not the scions of the elite Ivy League. This is about team effort, love, and the greatness imbedded in the regular guy. Grab a copy of this book from the circulation desk at the Main Library, or from your own shelf of "meant to reads" and join us for a robust discussion. You might come back for more!

 Local author Colleen Roberts (The Phoenix Sister, Trilogy of Hope, The Perfect Daughter, and Sister) has conducted a writer's group at Brockton Public Library since 2009. The writer's group supports writers of any genre, including poetry, to hone their craft. Beginning in April, meetings will be held twice monthly to work on projects. Authors are asked to bring the tools of their trade, ask questions, get a critique, unblock writer's block, and be ready to write, write, write. The group will use the Quiet Room on the top floor of the library on May  23, and resume in September after a summer break. For more information call Colleen Robets, 508-510-3217, 508-878-0151 or email: teachandwrite53@gmail.com.

University of Massachusetts Assistant Professor of Africana Studies, Aminah Pilgrim, will present a program about immigrant women from Africa. She uses oral histories of women from Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Some of these women will join her to discuss their experiences. Dr. Pilgrim will also set up two stations for any women who will want to add their stories to this project entitled, "Return to the Source".

One of the most important lessons we can impart to our children is to know who they are. Such knowledge gives confidence. Carlotta Walls LaNier recently spoke at Massasoit Community College about knowing who she was gave her the strength to face daily angry classmates at Little Rock High School.Come join us for this program and impart the gift to your children too.

 Light refreshments will be served. This program is free and everyone is welcome.
