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.

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.

Everything is set and ready to go, bride and groom are at the altar, suddenly one of the bridesmaids collapses into a floral arrangement. She's hasn't just fainted, she's dead! The demanding Mother of the Bride insists Kelsey not tell the wedding party, she's paid for a wedding not a funeral after all. When the sister of the bride is arrested for murder, Kelsy has to fix it. And although she's pretty sure investigating a murder isn't in her contract, crossing the well-connected mother of the bride could be a career-killer. So Kelsey must deal with stubborn detectives, another dead body and a rekindled romance in this smart and funny debut.
