On certain Monday mornings the Abington Free Library sparkles. That's when Professor Burton Klein, a former award-winning Philadelphia schools' administrator, lends his vivacious energy to a multi-faceted series of talks. 

On those mornings the Shorday Room holds comfortable chairs, a well-dressed man and only the posterboard on an easel that he has illustrated, but the most talented and engrossing actors don't need many props.

Come to the Library and learn what his group of regulars knows: Learning from Prof. Burton Klein is very entertaining!

"With ethos, pathos, and logos, Klein's highly unique presentations feature substance, the dynamics of power speaking, and a blend of humor to touch the hearts of his vast following."

Hidden Figures

Sept. 6, 2017 Hidden Figures: Motion Picture

“HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.” - (Alert)


 Killers of the Flower Moon

Oct. 11 - Killers of the Flower Moon : the Osage murders and the birth of the FBI, by David Grann

In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is utterly compelling, but also emotionally devastating. - (Random House, Inc.)

 


Fun Home

 Nov. 8 - Fun home : a family tragicomic, by Alison Bechdel

A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books.
This breakout book by Alison Bechdel is a darkly funny family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Bechdel’s sweetly gothic drawings. Like Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, it’s a story exhilaratingly suited to graphic memoir form.

 


The Invisible Bridge

 March (date TBD) - The Invisible Bridge, by Julie Orringer

Paris, 1937. Andras Lévi, a Hungarian-Jewish architecture student, arrives from Budapest with a scholarship, a single suitcase, and a mysterious letter he promised to deliver. But when he falls into a complicated relationship with the letter’s recipient, he becomes privy to a secret that will alter the course of his—and his family’s—history. From the small Hungarian town of Konyár to the grand opera houses of Budapest and Paris, from the despair of Carpathian winter to an unimaginable life in labor camps, The Invisible Bridge tells the story of a family shattered and remade in history’s darkest hour. - (Random House, Inc.)

 


News of the World

 April (date TBD) - News of the world : a novel, by Paulette Jiles 

Kidd, a retired Civil War captain, didn’t have babysitting on his mind when he drifted into town, but he ends up escorting a 10-year-old to her family for a $50 gold piece. Johanna was captured by the Kiowa after her German immigrant parents were attacked and killed, and now the unlikely duo must travel through rough Texas country together. Capt. Kidd raised money by reading newspapers to townspeople (hence the title) and tries to “civilize” Johanna, all while the two of them fight off raiders and thieves of all types... 
- School Library Journal


H is for Hawk

 May (date TBD) - H is for Hawk, by Helen Macdonald

An award-winning best-seller from the UK recounts how the author, an experienced falconer grieving the sudden death of her father, endeavored to train for the first time a dangerous goshawk predator as part of her personal recovery. 
- (Baker & Taylor) 


Dr. Karen WeekesDr. Karen Weekes is an Associate Professor of English at Penn State University, Abington College.

Meet Janet Benton, author

Lilli de Jong, by Janet BentonWine & Cheese Book Signing Social

Sunday, October 15, 2-3:30 p.m.
Community Room

The author will give a talk on Lilli de Jong with a Q&A after.  Book signing with wine & cheese to follow.

About Lilli de Jong:

In Benton’s debut novel, Lilli de Jong... an unwed mother chooses a life of heartache and thankless labor in order to keep her infant daughter and her own principles in late-19th-century Philadelphia. 

- Publisher’s Weekly, Mothers from the Past: PW Talks with Janet Benton, by Victoria Sandbrook Flynn | March 24, 2017

Pregnant, left behind by her lover, and banished from her Quaker home and teaching position, Lilli de Jong enters a home for wronged women to deliver her child. She is stunned at how much her infant needs her and at how quickly their bond overtakes her heart. Mothers in her position face disabling prejudice, which is why most give up their newborns. But Lilli can’t accept such an outcome. Instead, she braves moral condemnation and financial ruin in a quest to keep herself and her baby alive. 

Confiding their story to her diary as it unfolds, Lilli takes readers from an impoverished charity to a wealthy family’s home to the streets of a burgeoning American city. Drawing on rich history, Lilli de Jong is both an intimate portrait of loves lost and found and a testament to the work of mothers. “So little is permissible for a woman,” writes Lilli, “yet on her back every human climbs to adulthood.” - Random House

Teen Book Club - The Rest of Us Just Live Here

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick NessWednesday, October 18, from 4 - 5 p.m.
Ages 12-18

Sponsored by the Friends of Abington Library

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

What if you aren’t the Chosen One? The one who’s supposed to fight the zombies, or the soul-eating ghosts, or whatever the heck this new thing is, with the blue lights and the death? What if you’re like Mikey? Who just wants to graduate and go to prom and maybe finally work up the courage to ask Henna out before someone goes and blows up the high school. Again. Because sometimes there are problems bigger than this week’s end of the world, and sometimes you just have to find the extraordinary in your ordinary life. Even if your best friend is worshipped by mountain lions.

Sign up early for a free copy of the book.

On certain Monday mornings the Abington Free Library sparkles. That's when Professor Burton Klein, a former award-winning Philadelphia schools' administrator, lends his vivacious energy to a multi-faceted series of talks. 

On those mornings the Shorday Room holds comfortable chairs, a well-dressed man and only the posterboard on an easel that he has illustrated, but the most talented and engrossing actors don't need many props.

Come to the Library and learn what his group of regulars knows: Learning from Prof. Burton Klein is very entertaining!

"With ethos, pathos, and logos, Klein's highly unique presentations feature substance, the dynamics of power speaking, and a blend of humor to touch the hearts of his vast following."

RUSSIA vs. USA Espionage at WorkThursday, October 26, at 7 p.m. 
Abington Free Library
Community Room

News headlines daily declare the attempts at spying by Putin’s intelligence apparatus. But what of the American C.I.A.? Espionage certainly is among the activities of America’s premier intelligence agency. Who are the more effective spies? What are their targets? Come to the Library to join a discussion with former intelligence officer, Ira Cooperman, on how Russia and the U.S. compete in the field of espionage.

Ira Cooperman is a former intelligence officer who has worked with CIA, NSA and the military during the Vietnam War, was a reporter for “The Los Angeles Times,” and has taught National Security courses for over 10 years at the Chautauqua Institution. A member of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, he is a graduate of San Francisco State University, has lectured at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the State University of New York.

Hidden Figures

Sept. 6, 2017 Hidden Figures: Motion Picture

“HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monae)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.” - (Alert)


 Killers of the Flower Moon

Oct. 11 - Killers of the Flower Moon : the Osage murders and the birth of the FBI, by David Grann

In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is utterly compelling, but also emotionally devastating. - (Random House, Inc.)

 


Fun Home

 Nov. 8 - Fun home : a family tragicomic, by Alison Bechdel

A fresh and brilliantly told memoir from a cult favorite comic artist, marked by gothic twists, a family funeral home, sexual angst, and great books.
This breakout book by Alison Bechdel is a darkly funny family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Bechdel’s sweetly gothic drawings. Like Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, it’s a story exhilaratingly suited to graphic memoir form.

 


The Invisible Bridge

 March (date TBD) - The Invisible Bridge, by Julie Orringer

Paris, 1937. Andras Lévi, a Hungarian-Jewish architecture student, arrives from Budapest with a scholarship, a single suitcase, and a mysterious letter he promised to deliver. But when he falls into a complicated relationship with the letter’s recipient, he becomes privy to a secret that will alter the course of his—and his family’s—history. From the small Hungarian town of Konyár to the grand opera houses of Budapest and Paris, from the despair of Carpathian winter to an unimaginable life in labor camps, The Invisible Bridge tells the story of a family shattered and remade in history’s darkest hour. - (Random House, Inc.)

 


News of the World

 April (date TBD) - News of the world : a novel, by Paulette Jiles 

Kidd, a retired Civil War captain, didn’t have babysitting on his mind when he drifted into town, but he ends up escorting a 10-year-old to her family for a $50 gold piece. Johanna was captured by the Kiowa after her German immigrant parents were attacked and killed, and now the unlikely duo must travel through rough Texas country together. Capt. Kidd raised money by reading newspapers to townspeople (hence the title) and tries to “civilize” Johanna, all while the two of them fight off raiders and thieves of all types...

An award-winning best-seller from the UK recounts how the author, an experienced falconer grieving the sudden death of her father, endeavored to train for the first time a dangerous goshawk predator as part of her personal recovery. 
- (Baker & Taylor)
