Spring Series: Africa -- Colonialism & Beyond
The history of Africa has been overshadowed over the last 200 years by the European colonization that dominated all parts of the continent.  This is a huge story, and one that is often not very well understood by Americans.  We take a very brief look at the experience of Africa from the perspective of colonialism and its effect on blacks and whites.  

Toight's selection:  The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver      
In 1959 an American missionary and his family move to the Belgian Congo. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is an epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

    Contact: Fran    978-686-4080 x16   fmagro@mvlc.org
   

Please join us in welcoming author Jo Piazza O'Mara to the Nevins Memorial Library!  She will be sharing her debut novel, Garden of Hope which is set in her hometown of Lawrence, Massachusetts!

The robust Agosti family shared almost everything with each other—laughter and good-natured teasing, genuine love and loyalty, and lots of Mama’s mouthwatering Italian food. But a devastating illness and the discovery of one, decades-old secret tore father and son apart and threatened to undermine the once-solid family foundation of three generations. Told from the perspective of oldest sister Trina, Garden of Hope celebrates the joys of a small-town life, the privilege of being surrounded by God’s love in a Christian family, and the peace and redemption that comes when forgiveness happens and joy is rediscovered. - from Goodreads.com

    Contact: Kirsten Underwood   978-686-4080, ext 14   kunderwood@mvlc.org
   

Please join us as actor/teacher/tour guide Stephen Collins returns with his one-man Shakespeare Monologue Show.

Stephen Collins grew up in Cambridge, and received a BA in Literature from UMass Boston. After twenty plus years in a sales career, he is back doing what he truly loves - performing and teaching. Recently he has been teaching seminars on Whitman, Hardy, Shakespeare, Frost, and Contemporary Poetry at various locations throughout the country.

The newest addition to his repertoire, a one man show Shake-Scene has been met to rave reviews. He also works as a professionally licensed tour guide doing narrated historical tours of Boston. His Whitman performances have taken him all over the country. He now has eight one-man shows and six courses where his teaching style has been described as a hybrid between lecture and performance.

Shakepeare wrote to be listened to, not read, and Stephen, with his "pitch-perfect" performance, will do justice to the Bard. And what better way to celebrate National Poetry month!

This month, our teen book group has chosen to read The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal:

A young seamstress and a royal nursemaid find themselves at the center of an epic power struggle in this stunning young-adult debut.

On the eve of Princess Sophia’s wedding, the Scandinavian city of Skyggehavn prepares to fete the occasion with a sumptuous display of riches: brocade and satin and jewels, feasts of sugar fruit and sweet spiced wine. Yet beneath the veneer of celebration, a shiver of darkness creeps through the palace halls. A mysterious illness plagues the royal family, threatening the lives of the throne’s heirs, and a courtier’s wolfish hunger for the king’s favors sets a devious plot in motion.

Here in the palace at Skyggehavn, things are seldom as they seem — and when a single errant prick of a needle sets off a series of events that will alter the course of history, the fates of seamstress Ava Bingen and mute nursemaid Midi Sorte become irrevocably intertwined with that of mad Queen Isabel. As they navigate a tangled web of palace intrigue, power-lust, and deception, Ava and Midi must carve out their own survival any way they can.
  (from GoodReads.com)

 

Pizza and soda will be served.  This group is open to everyone in grades 7-12.  New members are always welcome - don't worry if you haven't read/finished the book!!

Toight's selection:  ~~Things Fall Apart by Chinue Achebe
 One of Achebe's many achievements in this acclaimed novel is his unsentimental rendering of Nigerian tribal life before and after the coming of colonialism. Achebe sketches a world in which violence, war, and suffering exist, but are balanced by a strong sense of tradition, ritual, and social coherence.

Our final meeting of the year is going to be a big one!  We will be voting on books to read next year (when we start back up in September), having a celebration for the graduating seniors, feasting over pizza and soda, and (if we have time), discussing Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern:

Born with cerebral palsy, Amy can't walk without a walker, talk without a voice box, or even fully control her facial expressions. Plagued by obsessive-compulsive disorder, Matthew is consumed with repeated thoughts, neurotic rituals, and crippling fear. Both in desperate need of someone to help them reach out to the world, Amy and Matthew are more alike than either ever realized.

When Amy decides to hire student aides to help her in her senior year at Coral Hills High School, these two teens are thrust into each other's lives. As they begin to spend time with each other, what started as a blossoming friendship eventually grows into something neither expected.

Come join the fun and especialy help plan our book list for next year! 

This is open to everyone in grades 7-12 - new members are always welcome!!

Spring Series: Africa -- Colonialism & Beyond
The history of Africa has been overshadowed over the last 200 years by the European colonization that dominated all parts of the continent.  This is a huge story, and one that is often not very well understood by Americans.  We take a very brief look at the experience of Africa from the perspective of colonialism and its effect on blacks and whites.  

Toight's selection: Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight  by Alexandra Fuller
This is an intensely moving journey through a white African girl's childhood. Fuller was brought up in Africa during the Rhodesian civil war (1971-1979), a world where children over five learned how to load a rifle, clean all the guns in the house, and shoot-to-kill.  The narrative focuses on the wartime relationships between blacks and whites through a child's watchful eyes.

Tonight's Selection:  The Snow Queen by Michael Cunningham
This elegant and haunting new novel also examines the relationships among siblings and in-laws.  In this story, Barrett Meeks is a poetically-minded man in his late thirties who has just been dumped by his boyfriend via text message.  He moves in to share a Brooklyn apartment with his older brother, Tyler and Tyler’s wife, Beth.
