Two Selections for This Date***

Wonder by R.J. Palacio

In a world where bullying among young people is an epidemic, this is a refreshing new narrative full of heart and hope.  R.J. Palacio has called her debut novel "a meditation on kindness" - indeed, every reader will come away with a greater appreciation for the simple courage of friendship.  Auggie is a hero to root for, a diamond in the rough who proves that you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.

The Chosen by Chaim Potok

Few stories offer more warmth, wisdom, or generosity than this tale of two boys, their fathers, their friendship, and the chaotic times in which they live.  Though on the surface it explores religious faith-the intellectually committed as well as the passionately observant-the struggles addressed in The Chosen are familiar to families of all faiths and in all nations.

    Contact:    1-866-941-8188   
   

In honor of Black History Month, we have a special multimedia presentation by author Doug Friedman on the Mills Brothers.  His book, Four Boys and a Guitar: The Story and Music of the Mills Brothers, tells the group's story from their humble beginnings in Piqua, Ohio, to their rise to international stardom.  The racial aspects of their story are also covered, especially as they mirrored the racial history of the country over the course of their career. 

The Mills Brothers had Number One hits in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s and reached the Pop Charts 70 times over a 37-year period.  In the pre-1955 era, they had the third longest run on the national singles charts—37 years—behind only Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra. Their output was prodigious – more than 2000 recordings (including re-issues) and over 600 individual titles.  Four Boys and a Guitar is the only biography of this famous American singing group.   

Copies of the book will be available for  purchase and signing.

One hundred percent of the profits from the sale of the book are being donated to Chhange.org, the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education at Brookdale Community College.

When Anne Morrow, a shy college senior with hidden literary aspirations, travels to Mexico City to spend Christmas with her family, she meets Colonel Charles Lindbergh, fresh off his celebrated 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic. Enthralled by Charles’s assurance and fame, Anne is certain the aviator has scarcely noticed her. But she is wrong. Charles sees in Anne a kindred spirit, a fellow adventurer, and her world will be changed forever. The two marry in a headline-making wedding. In the years that follow, Anne becomes the first licensed female glider pilot in the United States. But despite this and other major achievements, she is viewed merely as the aviator’s wife. The fairy-tale life she once longed for will bring heartbreak and hardships, ultimately pushing her to reconcile her need for love and her desire for independence, and to embrace, at last, life’s infinite possibilities for change and happiness.

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

When Anne Morrow, a shy college senior with hidden literary aspirations, travels to Mexico City to spend Christmas with her family, she meets Colonel Charles Lindbergh, fresh off his celebrated 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic. Enthralled by Charles’s assurance and fame, Anne is certain the aviator has scarcely noticed her. But she is wrong. Charles sees in Anne a kindred spirit, a fellow adventurer, and her world will be changed forever. The two marry in a headline-making wedding. In the years that follow, Anne becomes the first licensed female glider pilot in the United States. But despite this and other major achievements, she is viewed merely as the aviator’s wife. The fairy-tale life she once longed for will bring heartbreak and hardships, ultimately pushing her to reconcile her need for love and her desire for independence, and to embrace, at last, life’s infinite possibilities for change and happiness.

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

In the middle of tending to the everyday business at her vintage clothing shop and sidestepping her married boyfriend's attempts at commitment, Iris Lockhart receives a stunning phone call: Her great-aunt Esme, whom she never knew existed, is being released from Cauldstone Hospital—where she has been locked away for over sixty years.

Iris’s grandmother Kitty always claimed to be an only child. But Esme’s papers prove she is Kitty’s sister, and Iris can see the shadow of her dead father in Esme’s face. Esme has been labeled harmless—sane enough to coexist with the rest of the world. But Esme’s still basically a stranger, a family member never mentioned by the family, and one who is sure to bring life-altering secrets with her when she leaves the ward. If Iris takes her in, what dangerous truths might she inherit?

Maggie O’Farrell’s intricate tale of family secrets, lost lives, and the freedom brought by truth will haunt readers long past its final page.

Attend this workshop and you will learn: how to maximize your potential for financial aid; how to lower your 'out-of-pocket' costs; why the FAFSA and your EFC are so critical to the college financial aid process; and how the ACT/SAT scores translate into financial aid dollars.

It is important to look at these issues NOW, before your student heads off to college.

Jovino Santos Neto is among the most brilliant Brazilian musicians.”   Gennady Zalkovitch, director, Festival de la Butte Montmartre, Paris, France

    Contact:    732-431-5656   
   

The first of his family to go to college, Anil Patel, the golden son, carries the weight of tradition and his family’s expectations when he leaves his tiny Indian village to begin a medical residency in Dallas, Texas, at one of the busiest and most competitive hospitals in America. When his father dies, Anil becomes the de facto head of the Patel household and inherits the mantle of arbiter for all of the village’s disputes. But he is uneasy with the custom, uncertain that he has the wisdom and courage demonstrated by his father and grandfather. His doubts are compounded by the difficulties he discovers in adjusting to a new culture and a new job, challenges that will shake his confidence in himself and his abilities.

Back home in India, Anil’s closest childhood friend, Leena, struggles to adapt to her demanding new husband and relatives. Arranged by her parents, the marriage shatters Leena’s romantic hopes, and eventually forces her to make a desperate choice that will hold drastic repercussions for herself and her family. Though Anil and Leena struggle to come to terms with their identities thousands of miles apart, their lives eventually intersect once more—changing them both and the people they love forever.

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

Interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving fell in love and were married in 1958. They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred relocated with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia.

Short Stories Thru the Decades

A Silver Dish by Saul Bellow (1978)

Saul Bellow's story "A Silver Dish" illustrates the skill of one of the greatest American authors of the 20th century. The story spans a period from the middle of the Great Depression to the mid-1980s, showing the changes that time renders in both society and in one man's life.  The main character, Woody Selbst , is one of Bellow's finest creations.  A lonesome, successful businessman, Woody reminisces about the circumstances under which his father, a con man and thief, caused him to lose his scholarship to a seminary school, an act that redirected his entire life.

A Different Lie by Derek Haas

Haas builds characters who are complicated, memorable, and sharply drawn.  His spare, lean prose wastes no words. Haas develops a powerful and compellling voice and spends his scant 200 pages building suspense, creating atmosphere, and telling a compelling yarn. An unflinching little gem of a story: violent, dark, and unrelentingly entertaining.
