Monthly meeting of the Fiction Book Club.  New members always welcome! Come to the reference desk for information.

This month we are reading The Mortifications by Derek Palacio.

"In 1980, a rural Cuban family is torn apart during the Mariel Boat-lift. Uxbal Encarnación--father, husband, political insurgent--refuses to leave behind the revolutionary ideals and lush tomato farms of his sun-soaked homeland. His wife Soledad takes young Isabel and Ulises hostage and flees with them to America, leaving behind Uxbal for the promise of a better life."

Please join us. New members are always welcome!

Copies of the book are available at the Reference Desk.

Join us for a reading, signing, and Q&A with YA authors Meagan Brothers and Cristina Moracho. Meagan will be reading from her newest novel, Weird Girl and What's His Name about two close friends Lula and Rory. A 2015 Kirkus Reviews Best Teen Book, this fresh LGBT YA novel speaks to anyone who has ever felt unwanted and alone, and who struggles to find their place in an isolating world. Cristina Moracho's A Good Idea is about murder, betrayal, and a town with too many secrets.

Meagan Brothers is the author of the young adult novels Supergirl Mixtapes, which was a 2012 YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults nomination, and Debbie Harry Sings in French, which was an ALA Best Book for Young Adults, won a GLBT Round Table ALA Award, and was named a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age. A native Carolinian, Meagan currently lives in New York City.

Cristina Moracho is a native New Yorker who received her M.F.A in fiction from Brooklyn College, where the first chapter of Althea & Oliver was awarded the Carole and Irwin Lainoff Award by acclaimed author Jim Shepard. She's been a fellow at the Helene Wurlitzer Foundation in Taos, New Mexico, where she did not hear the Taos Hum but did attend a party at a solar-powered radio station. She writes about bad decisions and does all her own research. She lives in Brooklyn, where she works as a freelance writer and editor, is teaching herself to play the guitar and writing her next novel. You can find her on Twitter as @cherielecrivain.

lib_book3 6:00 PM  -  7:30 PM 2017 Books & Authors Festival: Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich & Leah Carroll Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference Department   5084572555   info@falmouthpubliclibrary.org
   

Join us for a conversation with Alexandria Marzano-Lesnevich (The Fact of a Body: a murder and a memoir) and Leah Carroll (Down City: a daughter's story of love, memory, and murder). 

The Fact of a Body: Ricky Langley, living in small-town Louisiana in 1992, is a convicted pedophile trying to turn his life around. He has been mildly successful until he meets six-year-old Jeremy, whom he confesses to murdering; later the boy's body is found in the room Ricky rents. In 2003, Marzano-Lesnevich begins an internship at a Louisiana law firm that's working to convert Ricky's death sentence to life in prison. She is drawn to the law not only because her parents were both lawyers but because she doesn't believe in the death penalty and wants to defend those sentenced to it. Only after seeing Ricky's taped confession does she believe he deserves to die. He is a living reminder of abuse Marzano-Lesnevich suffered as a young child, and as she delves deeper into both her and Ricky's childhoods, she discovers further connections, and each story begins to bleed into the other.

Down City: When Carroll was four, her mother was missing for several months before her body was found, off the side of a highway a state away from their home in Rhode Island. Years later, her father, long suffering from depression and alcoholism, was gone, too. For the traumatic parental losses, Carroll divides her first book into two parts: her long-simmering inquiry into the murder of the mother she barely knew and her account of the brilliant, charming, Vietnam-veteran father she watched diminish. In recording the outsize tragedies of her small family, Carroll maps the social topography of her small state (down city denotes a Providence neighborhood), contextualizes organized crime's power there as well as its involvement in her mother's death and tells an intersecting story of print journalism's significance and demise.

    Contact: Reference Department   5084572555   info@falmouthpubliclibrary.org
   

 Join us for a presentation of Stealing Rembrandts with author Anthony Amore. Copies of Stealing Rembrandts: the untold stories of notorious art heists will be available for sale from Eight Cousins Bookstore following the event.

Art theft is a multi-billion dollar per year illicit industry, and the world’s most significant heists share one thing in common: the priceless works of Rembrandt.  The great Dutch Master’s paintings are known for their value by everyone, from high school dropouts to museum curators. While Hollywood has portrayed the theft of high-value paintings as the work of dashing, likeable thieves working to steal art for evil, reclusive geniuses, in fact that’s nothing like the reality of art theft. Instead, it’s much more interesting.  New York Times bestselling author, Anthony Amore, takes his audience behind the scenes of the most notorious of these heists, telling the true story of art crime from the conception of the crime to the recovery of the art. Anthony Amore is the author of two best sellers: Stealing Rembrandts and The Art of the Con. The former was a Wall Street Journal True Crime Best Seller, and the latter a New York Times Crime Best Seller as well as one of Amazon's top 10 non-fiction books of 2015.

Join us for a conversation with Anita Diamant, bestselling author of The Boston Girl and The Red Tent, and Mary Fran Buckley of Eight Cousins Bookstore. 

The Boston Girl is the story of Addie Baum, born in 1900 to immigrant parents who were unprepared for and suspicious of America and its effect on their three daughters. Addie’s intelligence and curiosity take her to a world her parents can’t imagine—a world of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture, and new opportunities for women; a world where women finish high school, go to college, have a career, and find true love. The Boston Girl begins when Addie’s twenty-two year old granddaughter asks, “How did you get to be the woman you are today?”

When the King of Botswana, Seretse Khama, falls in love with a London office worker, it sets in motion an international conflict of epic proportions. It is 1947 and South Africa has recently introduced Apartheid as a national law and does not like the idea of a bi-racial couple ruling a neighboring nation. South Africa threatens Great Britain's access to the country's uranium and gold mines in an attempt to stop the wedding they so fear and loathe. They also threaten to invade the smaller and poorer country if the marriage takes place and the couple continues to rule Botswana. The screenplay is by Guy Hibbert, based on the book Colour Bar by Susan Williams.

Rated PG-13, 111 minutes.

Starring, David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Jack Davenport.

Join us for a presentation with author Kathryn Kleekamp as she presents on her book Cape Cod and the Islands Where Beauty and History Meet. Copies of the book will be available for sale from Eight Cousins Bookstore following the event.

Cape Cod and its neighboring islands, Nantucket and Marthas Vineyard, possess extraordinary beauty. Magnificent ocean vistas, spectacular sand dunes, quiet marshes, and historic seaside villages, bring people back year after year. For the inquiring visitor the remarkable stories of courage and enterprise by those who settled the land and shaped its character provide background for thoughtful reflection. This stunning new book features fifty of Kathryn Kleekamps original oil paintings depicting land and seascapes along with rare historic photographs. Image and text capture the fundamental nature of this remarkable area: the heartbeat of those who farmed the land, fished the seas, captained the great schooners, or waited at home for a loved ones return. The historic vignettes explore major influences that made Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Marthas Vineyard what they are today. Traditional Cape and Island recipes found here are another link to the present from the past.

Before moving to Cape Cod, Kathryn enjoyed a 30-year career as a clinical microbiologist. Primarily a self-guided realistic painter, she works in oils and occasionally watercolor. Her goal is to capture an image or moment in time and have the viewer experience his or her own special memories of that place.

Join us for a reading and signing with author Jeanne McWilliams Blasberg as she reads from her new novel, Eden. Copies of Eden will be available for purchase from Eight Cousins Bookstore.

Eden, a vacation retreat in Long Harbor, Rhode Island, has always been part of Becca's life, but now she is about to lose it forever. Her father built the home before the stock-market crash of 1929. The family always spent summers there, the slower pace a welcome break from the workaday routine during the rest of the year. For Becca and her kin, the home is imbued with memories of its previous owners, the assignment of the choicest rooms a bone of contention among different relatives that dates back years. Before she can face up to life without Eden, however, she must tell her family a secret that she kept for 50 years. The novel explores the lives of Becca and her closest relations: her once-vibrant mother, who faded to a shade of her former self; her bitter daughter, trapped in a miserable marriage; and her granddaughter, pregnant at 29 with a married man's child. The choices and constraints faced by each woman echo through the generations, poignantly showing how paradise can remain out of reach.

In celebration of Henry David Thoreau’s Bicentennial, we have invited Geoff Wisner, editor of two books: Thoreau’s Wildflowers and Thoreau’s Animals to present a lecture about Thoreau.

“Many of the most vivid writings in Henry David Thoreau’s journals were inspired by the plants and animals that inhabit the sprawling fields, forests, and wetlands of Concord and nearby communities. An inveterate year-round rambler and keen and thoughtful observer, Thoreau wrote frequently about these creatures, faithfully recording each sighting or encounter with the accuracy of a scientist and the deep spirituality of a transcendentalist and mystic.”

In this lecture, Wisner will present Thoreau’s profound spirituality and belief in the earth-human connection as revealed through his explorations of Thoreau’s best nature writings.

Wisner has contributed to publications including the Boston Globe, Christian Science Monitor, Wall Street Journal, and Wild Earth. A graduate of Harvard University, he lives in New York City.

Lecture Title: What is Race?

Guest Speaker: Jill Gordon. Charles A. Dana Professor of Philosophy, Colby College

We Think we know what we mean when we say "race," but when pushed to give a coherent account of it, things fall apart. It can be confusing to hear that "race isn't real," and such notions as "race is socially constructed" need further investigation and explanation. There are marginalized groups that used to be considered " races," but are not anymore, and sometimes what we consider religions are also treated like "races." And we (white folks) sometimes speak as though white folks don't have a race. This lecture will try to bring some clarity to this confunding area of our public discourse.

Please join us for a reading & signing with Holly FitzGerald, author of Ruthless River.


Holly and her husband, Fitz—married less than two years—set out on a yearlong honeymoon adventure of a lifetime, backpacking around the world. Five months into the trip their plane crash lands in Peru at a penal colony walled in by jungle, and their blissfully romantic journey turns into a terrifying nonstop labyrinth of escape and survival.

On a small, soon-ravaged raft that quickly becomes their entire universe through dangerous waters alive with deadly animals and fish, their only choice: to continue on, despite the rush of insects swarming them by day, the sounds of encroaching predators at night. Without food or means of communication, with no one to hear their cries for help or on a search-and-rescue expedition to find them, the author and her husband make their way, fighting to conquer starvation and navigate the brute force of the river, their only hope for survival, in spite of hunger and weakening resolve, to somehow, miraculously hang on and find their way east to a large riverside town, before it is too late.

Join us for a reading and signing with internationally bestselling author Tess Gerritsen. I Know a Secret will be published on August 15, 2017. Registration is encouraged.

I KNOW A SECRET has our favorite crime fighting duo Detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles investigating the gruesome staged murder of a horror film producer in this edge-of-your-seat thriller. In a house decorated with horror movie posters, a young woman’s body is found. She lies on her bed, her eyes removed and placed in the palm of her hand, a gesture that echoes the terrifying films she produces. Is a crazed movie fan reenacting scenes from those disturbing films? When another victim is found, again with no apparent cause of death and a grotesquely staged crime scene, Jane and Maura realize the killer has widened his circle of targets. He’s chosen one particular woman for his next victim, and she knows he’s coming for her next. She’s the only one who can help Jane and Maura catch the killer. But she knows a secret. And it’s a secret she’ll never tell.

I KNOW A SECRET is the 12th book in RIZZOLI & ISLES’ best selling suspense and thriller novel series and will finally reveal what happens between Maura and Daniel Brophy – and which man Angela chooses.

Internationally bestselling author Tess Gerritsen took an unusual route to a writing career. A graduate of Stanford University, Tess went on to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where she was awarded her M.D. While on maternity leave from her work as a physician, she began to write fiction. Tess’s first medical thriller, Harvest, was released in hardcover in 1996, and it marked her debut on the New York Times bestseller list. Her suspense novels since then have been: Life Support (1997), Bloodstream (1998), Gravity (1999), The Surgeon (2001), The Apprentice (2002), The Sinner (2003), Body Double (2004), Vanish (2005), The Mephisto Club (2006), The Bone Garden (2007), The Keepsake (2008; UK title: Keeping the Dead), Ice Cold (2010; UK title: The Killing Place), The Silent Girl (2011), Last To Die (August 2012), Die Again (January 2015) and Playing With Fire (coming October 27, 2015). Her books have been published in forty countries, and more than 30 million copies have been sold around the world. Her series of novels featuring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the TNT television series “Rizzoli & Isles” starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander. Now retired from medicine, she writes full time. She lives in Maine.

Signed books will be available for purchase.

Registration encouraged and will begin on September 11.


Frances McNamara: Frances grew up in Boston where her father was Police Commissioner in the 1960s. As a librarian she worked at Wellesley College, then, NELINET, OCLC and finally University of Chicago Library.  After writing scenarios for an amateur mystery night group in Granville OH, Frances turned to mystery novels. She has published six titles in the Emily Cabot Mysteries, featuring a fictional heroine, along with real-life historical figures, with Allium Press of Chicago, the first being DEATH AT THE FAIR, and the most recent, DEATH AT THE PARIS EXPOSITION. The mysteries are set in the 1890's and the series will extend into the 1900's. Frances is currently working on a second contemporary mystery series to be set in Boston, where she now lives.

Susan Santangelo: Former feature writer, drama critic and editor for daily and weekly newspapers in the New York metropolitan area (including Cosmopolitan magazine), Susan now writes the Baby Boomer mysteries, featuring Carol Andrews and her husband Jim. She has published seven titles in the series, the first being RETIREMENT CAN BE MURDER, and the most recent, DIETING CAN BE MURDER. In addition to being a member of Sisters in Crime, she is a member of the Cape Cod Writers Center, and reviews mysteries for Suspense Magazine. She divides her time between Cape Cod, MA, and the Connecticut shoreline, and shares her life with her husband Joe and two English cocker spaniels: Tucker and Boomer.

Lea Wait: Maine author Lea Wait writes two mystery series and historical novels for ages 8 and up. Her Shadows Antique Print Mystery series features antique print dealer Maggie Summer. SHADOWS AT THE FAIR, the first in the series, was a finalist for a "best first mystery" Agatha award. SHADOWS ON A MORNING IN MAINE is the most recent (the 8th) in the series. Lea also writes the Mainely Needlepoint series. TWISTED THREADS, the first in the series, was published in January, 2015 and was a USA Today best seller. TIGHTENING THE THREADS, the 5th in the series, is the most recent, published in March, 2017. UNCERTAIN GLORY, set in 1861, is the most recent of her books for young people.
