The Derby Public Library invites everyone on an armchair trip across America as Connecticut author Glenn Maynard discusses his book.

One week following his wedding, Glenn and his wife quit their jobs, sold their cars and set out on a 35,000-mile trek through the 48 contiguous states.  In a rebuilt RV, they travelled through 23 National Parks, Las Vegas, Mardi Gras, and sleepy ghost towns.  They felt the rush from tornadoes and the rocking from an earthquake.  Wanting to get immersed in America, they slept on roadsides and truck stops.  While many Americans dream of such a trip, few realize this dream.  Through this presentation, you will be able to vicariously take the trip of a lifetime

Copies of the book will be available for purchase.  Registration is requested.

  This riveting novel combines all the delights of a summer beach read, with exceptional wit, intelligence, and insight.  For the Posts, a two week trip to the Balearic Island of Mallorca with their extended family and friends is a celebration. Franny and Jim are observing their thirty-fifth wedding anniversary, and their daughter, Sylvia, has graduated from high school.  Anticipated as an escape from the tensions simmering at home, the trip soon reveals secrets, resurfaces childhood rivalries, and unleashes emotional turmoil.  It is a story of family and the bonds that ultimately hold us together. 

Multiple copies are available at the main circulation desk.  Bring a sandwich and a friend as you “chat and chew.”  Dessert and beverages will be provided.

This is a great opportunity for beginner or reluctant readers as well as experienced readers to build confidence, enhance their reading skills achieved during the school year, and encourage a love of reading. Participants are encouraged to stop by the Children’s Room to select a book with Payson’s “paw of approval” to share with her for the program.

Every year, four women gather together to spend a week at the beach, renting a new house each year.  When one of the “girls” dies tragically, the group begins to drift apart and their vacations come to a halt.  Years later, a new marriage reunites them on an island off the South Carolina coast.  Here they come to terms with their differences and make startling discoveries that change them in ways they never expected.   

Multiple copies are available at the main circulation desk. Bring a sandwich and a friend as you “chat and chew.”  Dessert and beverages will be provided.
