    Contact: Rebecca Shea   978-468-5577   rshea@mvlc.org
   

Each year some 2,500 people set out to hike the Appalachian Trail, and about 800 complete all 2,190 miles between Springer Mt. in Georgia and Mt. Katahdin in Maine (in four to seven months). But hundreds more take to the trails for day hikes, one- and two-nighters and increasingly, long distance section hikes of 100 miles or more.  Steve Crowe of Wenham has hiked 1,400 miles of the AT. For 10 years he confined his hiking to New England, completing about 500 miles on dozens of 1- to 3-day hikes. Two years ago he discovered long distance hiking and completed the first 530 miles in the South; last summer he added another 330 miles in Virginia, stopping at Waynesboro - Charlottesville, VA.
Steve's topics in this workshop include: Why hike? What to carry. Where to stay. Starting out (slow). Resupplying. Health and safety. The people you meet. The best time to go. Getting there and back. and Can I really do this? (You can expect the answer to be “yes” – Steve is 63 and has two replacement hips!) Those attending will receive a gear checklist and a worksheet for planning their own hiking adventures.  Free and open to the public, bring along a friend.

The ones they choose range from classic to popular, from fantastic to spiritual, and we hear their passion for reading and their love for each other in their intimate and searching discussions." -library catalog

Bring your brown-bag lunch and we'll discuss Mornings in Jenin by Susan Abulhawa, 2010. "Forcibly removed from the ancient village of Ein Hod by the newly formed state of Israel in 1948, the Abulhejas are moved into the Jenin refugee camp. There, exiled from his beloved olive groves, the family patriarch languishes of a broken heart, his eldest son fathers a family and falls victim to an Israeli bullet, and his grandchildren struggle against tragedy toward freedom, peace, and home. This is the Palestinian story, told as never before, through four generations of a single family." -Amazon  (Previously issued as Scar of David in 2006.)

Available in: hardcover, and large print.

In the summer of 1944, a handpicked group of young GIs landed in France to conduct a secret mission. Armed with truckloads of inflatable tanks, a massive collection of sound-effects records, and more than a few tricks up their sleeves, their job was to create a road show of deception on the battlefields of Europe, with the German Army as their audience.  From Normandy to the Rhine, the 1,100 men of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops, known as the Ghost Army, conjured up phony convoys, phantom divisions, and make-believe headquarters to fool the enemy about the strength and location of American units. The Ghost Army of World War II: How One Top-Secret Unit Deceived the Enemy with Inflatable Tanks, Sound Effects, and Other Audacious Fakery is the first publication to tell the full story of how artists wielding imagination, paint, and bravado saved thousands of American lives.  Meet best-selling author and award-winning documentary film maker Rick Beyer as he shares their amazing story with us.

Author reception: 6:30, Brief Friends Meeting 7:00-7:15, author presentation at 7:30.

    Contact: Nancy Day   978-468-5577   nday@mvlc.org
   

Bring your brown-bag lunch and we'll discuss To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, 1960. "One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime."   -Amazon

Available in: hardcover, paperback, largeprint, and CD. (However I highly recommend the audiobook read by Sissy Spacek. It's wonderful).
