This intense new novel follows a middle-aged man as he contends with a past he has never much thought about until his oldest friends return with a vengeance, one of them from the grave another maddeningly present. Tony Webster thought he’d left all of this behind as he built a life for himself, and by now his marriage and family and career have fallen into an amicable divorce and retirement. But he is then presented with a mysterious legacy that obliges him to reconsider various things, and to revise his estimation of his own nature and his place in the world.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Lee, Harper. Go Set a Watchman

May 4, 2016, at 7 p.m.Lee, Harper. Go Set a Watchman 

Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.

Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch—Scout—struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.

Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee’s enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.

Front Row Seat to History with Edward N. Eisen

 

Sunday, September 20, 2-3:30 p.m.

Register for this FREE program in the Library Office, Abington Free Library, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15, email: kmcinnis@mclinc.org or online here.

“What most of us read in newspapers or watch on TV — in time becomes — history. Yet some of us over the years have had the remarkable good fortune of recording that history. And so it was with me.”

Ed has worked in radio, televison, and public relations. He was a top 40 DJ, a TV producer, booth announcer, career counselor and read books for the blind. He was the first person of the Jewish faith chosen to represent two popes during the 41 International Eucharistic Congress.

In 1975, he met and ate chicken soup with Mother Teresa at the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. On another occasion, boxing champ Joe Frazier autographed his glove, scrawling the words: “To Ed Eisen, Boogie, Boogie. Joe Frazier.” The glove sits in a treasured spot in the Eisens’ library.

As a reporter for three major metros – The Philadelphia Inquirer, the former Philadelphia Bulletin and The Fort Lauderdale News, Eisen had a front-row seat to history. 

Two years before the assassination of Martin Luther King, he interviewed the civil rights leader at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Philadelphia.

He is the recipient of a number of journalism awards, top among them was a Freedoms Foundation Award for an article written in 1957. It was titled, “My Job: Protecting America’s Freedoms.” The piece was written while Ed was stationed in Karlsruhe, Germany with the 7th U.S. Army.

Ed is also the author of a book subtitled: Soul for Sale: Confessions of a Philadelphia Spin Doctor. The memoir cautions young people seeking careers in high paying jobs to think twice before going for the gold. “You may regret that decision,” he warns. “Go for what makes you want to get up in the morning and run to work. I did. And I never looked back,” he says. The book is available for free on the Internet.

She enjoys sharing what she has learned with other orchid growers. Bring your problem orchid to the lecture with any cultivation questions.

April 6 - Square Foot Gardening in Raised Beds with Wayne Brunt.

No kidding!

April 20 - Rain Gardens for Everyone with Leslie Bass.

“Rain Gardens, a simple yet intentional gardening practice to manage rainwater on any property, will be explained with the residential home owner in mind. Learn about the concept and the process of creating your own rain garden this year. Plan to improve environmental quality, support beneficial wildlife, and beautify your property at the same time.”

September 28 - Planting Bulbs in the Fall for Spring Blooms, A Lesson in Patience with Betsy Nutt.

Learn how to plant bulbs in the fall so your garden becomes alive with colorful flowers in the spring. Find out exactly what is a bulb. Discover when is the best time to plant in our area, how to prepare the soil for the healthiest plants, what bulbs are suitable for our location and how to plan your bulb garden for longer blooming. Hear about methods to keep bulb-eating critters at bay. Finally, determine the importance of the care of bulbs after blooming. There will be a number of handouts to reinforce the discussion.
