We are kicking off a new season of the Wednesday Afternoon Book Group with a Classic - Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell.  No matter if this is your first reading or your tenth, we can look forward to some fun discussion when we meet! 

About the book:

Many novels have been written about the Civil War and its aftermath. None take us into the burning fields and cities of the American South as Gone With the Wind does, creating haunting scenes and thrilling portraits of characters so vivid that we remember their words and feel their fear and hunger for the rest of our lives.  In the two main characters, the white-shouldered, irresistible Scarlett and the flashy, contemptuous Rhett, Margaret Mitchell not only conveyed a timeless story of survival under the harshest of circumstances, she also created two of the most famous lovers in the English-speaking world since Romeo and Juliet.

Copies of the book will be available at the Main Desk by the end of July. 

All are invited to join this book group!  We meet on the third Wednesday of each month at 1pm.  Refreshments are provided.

    Contact: Danielle Kimerer   978-686-4080 x12   dkimerer@nevinslibrary.org
   

 

The Nevins Library welcomes Bestselling Author Kate Larson.

She’ll be here to talk about her new book that details the life of Rosemary Kennedy.

 

Do you know the story of Rosemary Kennedy, the eldest daughter of Joe and Rose Kennedy? Come hear Kate Larson, author of the book Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter, tells us Rosemary’s story.

 

Kate Larson brings Rosemary alive as a girl adored but left far behind by her competitive siblings. She reveals both the sensitive care Rose and Joe gave to Rosemary and then—as the family’s standing reached an apex—the often desperate and duplicitous arrangements the Kennedys made to keep her away from home as she became increasingly difficult in her early twenties. Finally, Larson illuminates Joe’s decision to have Rosemary lobotomized at age twenty-three and the family’s complicity in keeping the secret.

Copies of the book will be available for sale after the talk.

We are reading a contemporary gothic novel for this month's Book Group:  Mr. Splitfoot by Samantha Hunt

About the book:

Ruth and Nat are orphans, packed into a house full of abandoned children run by a religious fanatic.  To entertain their siblings, they channel the dead.  Decades later, Ruth's niece, Cora, finds herself accidentally pregnant.  After years of absence, Aunt Ruth appears, mute and full of intention.  She is on a mysterious mission, leading Cora on an odyssey across the entire state of New York on foot.  Where is Ruth taking them?  Where has she been?  and who -- or what -- has she hidden in the woods at the end of the road?  In an ingeniously structured dual narrative, two separate timelines move toward the same point of crisis. Their merging will upend and reinvent the whole. A subversive ghost story that is carefully plotted and elegantly constructed, Mr. Splitfoot will set your heart racing and your brain churning. Mysteries abound, criminals roam free, utopian communities show their age, the mundane world intrudes on the supernatural and vice versa.

Please feel free to join in the fun!  Books will be available at the Main Desk for one month before we meet.  Refreshments will be served.

    Contact: Danielle Kimerer   978-686-4080 x12   dkimerer@mvlc.org
   

 

The Nevins Library is happy to welcome Joseph M. Bagley, City Archeologist of Boston to talk about his book "A History of Boston in 50 Artifacts" and the history that inspired it.

We all know the big events that happened in Boston. The Battle of Bunker Hill, Paul Revere's ride, the Great Fire of 1872. This book highlights the finds that have been made over the past 40 years that showcase the everyday people who lived in Boston. From drinking cups to ancient spears to chinaware. From ancient fishing grounds to Jazz Age red-light districts. This book lets us peer into the past of those people who didn't make it into the text books, but shaped our great state just as much.

Joseph M. Bagley has been the City Archeologist since 2011, and a professional archaeologist since 2002. With a decade of archaeological fieldwork on Native American and Historic archaeological sites throughout New England and years of dedicated research on the archaeology of Boston, Joe brings an expert knowledge of the entire human history of Boston to the City Archaeology Program.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

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.

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.
