You might know Dr. Joseph Kalil as a dentist in Methuen (now retired), but you might not know that he is also a poet.  In fact, his poem "The Dentist's Prayer" was accepted by the American Dental Association as the universal "Primary Parameter of Care" for dentists to follow in the treatment of patients.  He has now published his first (he calls unorthodox) book of poetry, entitled Heaven Can Wait:  Words that Inspire, Motivate and Entertain.  He combines words and thoughts with poetic forms to make for interesting reading.  His topics are taken from a lifetime of experiences in teaching, research, and education.

Join us as we welcome Dr. Kalil to the library for a reading from his book. 

Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.  They are $15 each, and cash is preferred.

Refreshments will be served.

Get ready for this month's book!  We will be talking about Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi

About the book:

A reimagining of the Snow White story set in the United States during the 1950s and 60s.  In the winter of 1953, Boy Novak arrives in a small town in Massachusetts, looking for the opposite of the life she's left behind in New York.  She marries a local widower and becomes stepmother to his winsome daughter, Snow Whitman.  A wicked stepmother is a creature Boy never imagined she'd become, but the birth of Boy's daughter, Bird, who is dark-skinned, exposes the Whitmans as light-skinned African Americans passing for white.  Now Boy, Snow, and Bird must confront the tyranny of the mirror to ask how much power surfaces really hold.

The book will be available for pick up at the Main Desk for one month prior to our meeting.  Refreshments will be served.

This month's book is sure to help us start the new year with a laugh or two!  We'll be discussing American Housewife: Stories by Helen Ellis

About the book:

Meet the women of American Housewife: they wear lipstick, pearls, and sunscreen, even when it's cloudy. They casserole. They pinwheel. They pump the salad spinner like it's a CPR dummy. And then they kill a party crasher, carefully stepping around the body to pull cookies out of the oven. These twelve irresistible stories take us from a haunted prewar Manhattan apartment building to the set of a rigged reality television show, from the unique initiation ritual of a book club to the getaway car of a pageant princess on the lam, from the gallery opening of a tinfoil artist to the fitting room of a legendary lingerie shop. Vicious, fresh, and nutty as a poisoned Goo Goo Cluster, American Housewife is an uproarious, pointed commentary on womanhood.

Copies of the book will be available at the Main Desk for a month prior to our meeting.  Refreshments will be served.

Get ready for a thriller!  This month we will be talking about The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison.

About the book:

Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage.  Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim, rush haplessly toward the main event.  He is a committed cheater.  She lives and breathes denial.  He exists in dual worlds.  She likes to settle scores.  He decides to play for keeps.  She has nothing left to lose.  Told in alternating voices, The Silent Wife is about a marriage in the throes of dissolution, a couple headed for catastrophe, concessions that can't be made, and promises that won't be kept.

Copies of the book will be available for pick up for one month prior to our meeting.  Refreshments will be served.

This month's book is appropriate to discuss a few days before St. Patrick's Day!  We will be talking about Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín.

About the book:

Eilis Lacey has come of age in small-town Ireland in the hard years following World War Two.  When an Irish priest from Brooklyn offers to sponsor Eilis in America - - to live and work in a Brooklyn neighborhood "just like Ireland" - - she decides she must go, leaving her fragile mother and charismatic sister behind.  Eilis finds work in a department store on Fulton Street, and when she least expects it, finds love.  Tony, who loves the Dodgers and his big Italian family, slowly wins her over with patient charm.  But just as Eilis begins to fall in love with Tony, devestating news from Ireland threatens the promise of her future.

Copies of the book will be available at the main desk for one month prior to our meeting.  Refreshments will be served.

Beijing Comrades  by Bei Tong    
This is the story of a tumultuous love affair set against the sociopolitical unrest of late-eighties China. Due to its depiction of gay sexuality and its critique of the totalitarian government, it was originally published anonymously in China.  The novel developed a cult following and remains a central work of queer literature from the People's Republic of China. Recently translated into English, and available in the US, it gives us a glimpse into a culture where homosexuals are still an officially repressed minority.

This month's book is sure to provide us plenty to talk about.  We will be discussing The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri.

About the book:

Growing up in Calcutta, born just fifteen months apart, Subhash and Udayan Mitra are inseparable brothers, one often mistaken for the other. But they are also opposites, with gravely different futures ahead of them. It is the 1960s, and Udayan--charismatic and impulsive--finds himself drawn to the Naxalite movement, a rebellion waged to eradicate inequity and poverty: he will give everything, risk all, for what he believes. Subhash, the dutiful son, does not share his brother's political passion; he leaves home to pursue a life of scientific research in a quiet, coastal corner of America.  But when Subhash learns what happened to his brother in the lowland outside their family's home, he comes back to India, hoping to pick up the pieces of a shattered family, and to heal the wounds Udayan left behind--including those seared in the heart of his brother's wife.

Suspenseful, sweeping, piercingly intimate, The Lowland expands the range of one of our most dazzling storytellers, seamlessly interweaving the historical and the personal across generations and geographies. This masterly novel of fate and will, exile and return, is a tour de force and an instant classic.

Copies of the book will be available for pick up one month prior to our meeting.  Refreshements will be served.

For our final book of the season, we will be discussing Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. 

About the book:

Lou Clark knows lots of things. She knows how many footsteps there are between the bus stop and home. She knows she likes working in The Buttered Bun tea shop and she knows she might not love her boyfriend Patrick.  What Lou doesn't know is she's about to lose her job or that knowing what's coming is what keeps her sane.

Will Traynor knows his motorcycle accident took away his desire to live. He knows everything feels very small and rather joyless now and he knows exactly how he's going to put a stop to that.  What Will doesn't know is that Lou is about to burst into his world in a riot of colour. And neither of them knows they're going to change the other for all time.

Copies of the book will be available for one month prior to our meeting.  Refreshments will be served.
