This month we will be discussing A Time to Dance by Padma Venkatraman.

"Veda, a classical dance prodigy in India, lives and breathes dance—so when an accident leaves her a below-knee amputee, her dreams are shattered. For a girl who’s grown used to receiving applause for her dance prowess and flexibility, adjusting to a prosthetic leg is painful and humbling. But Veda refuses to let her disability rob her of her dreams, and she starts all over again, taking beginner classes with the youngest dancers. Then Veda meets Govinda, a young man who approaches dance as a spiritual pursuit. As their relationship deepens, Veda reconnects with the world around her, and begins to discover who she is and what dance truly means to her."

This month we will be discussing Euphoria by Lily King:

English anthropologist Andrew Bankson has been alone in the field for several years, studying the Kiona river tribe in the Territory of New Guinea.  Haunted by the memory of his brother's deaths and increasingly frustrated and isolated by his research, Bankson is on the verge of suicide when a chance encounter with colleagues, the controversial Nell Stone and her wry and mercurial Australian husband, Fen, pulls him back from the brink.  Nell and Fen have just fled the bloodthirsty Mumbanyo and, in spite of Nell's poor health, are hungry for a new discovery.  When Bankson finds them a new tribe nearby, the artistic, female-dominated Tam, he ignites an intellectual and romantic firestorm between the three of them that burns out of anyone's control.

Please join in the discussion!  Books will be available at the Main Desk for the month leading up to our meeting.

This month we will be discussing When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds

"Ali’s got enough going on, between school and boxing and helping out at home. His best friend Noodles, though. Now there’s a dude looking for trouble—and, somehow, it’s always Ali around to pick up the pieces. But, hey, a guy’s gotta look out for his boys, right? Besides, it’s all small potatoes; it’s not like anyone’s getting hurt. And then there’s Needles. Needles is Noodles’s brother. He’s got a syndrome, and gets these ticks and blurts out the wildest, craziest things. It’s cool, though: everyone on their street knows he doesn’t mean anything by it. Yeah, it’s cool…until Ali and Noodles and Needles find themselves somewhere they never expected to be…somewhere they never should've been—where the people aren’t so friendly, and even less forgiving."

Ted Reinstein is coming back to the Nevins Library!

He'll be talking about his new book Wicked Pissed:

From sports to politics, food to finance, aviation to engineering, to bitter disputes over simple boundaries themselves, New England’s feuds have peppered the region’s life for centuries. They’ve been raw and rowdy, sometimes high minded and humorous, and in a place renowned for its deep sense of history, often long-running and legendary. There are even some that will undoubtedly outlast the region’s ancient low stone walls.

Bringing to life many of the fights, spats, and arguments that have, in many ways, shaped the area itself, Reinstein demonstrates what it really means to be Wicked Pissed.

It came out on April 1st (seriously!) and copies will be available for purchase at the event.

We are so excited to have New York Times Bestselling Author Jacqueline Mitchard visit the Nevins Library!

She will be here to talk about her latest novel, TWO IF BY SEA:

Just hours after his wife and her entire family perish in the Christmas Eve tsunami in Brisbane, American expat and former police officer Frank Mercy goes out to join his volunteer rescue unit and pulls a little boy from a submerged car, saving the child's life with only seconds to spare. In that moment, Frank's own life is transformed. Not quite knowing why, Frank sidesteps the law, when, instead of turning Ian over to the Red Cross, he takes the boy home to the Midwestern farm where he grew up. Not long into their journey, Frank begins to believe that Ian has an extraordinary, impossible telepathic gift; but his only wish is to protect the deeply frightened child. As Frank struggles to start over, training horses as his father and grandfather did before him, he meets Claudia, a champion equestrian and someone with whom he can share his life and his fears for Ian. Both of them know that it will be impossible to keep Ian's gift a secret forever. Already, ominous coincidences have put Frank's police instincts on high alert, as strangers trespass the quiet life at the family farm"
 
Mitchard is also known for her debut novel, THE DEEP END OF THE OCEAN which was not only a best seller, but was Oprah's choice for the first book in her infamous "Oprah's Book Club".  The book was also made into a movie starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Treat Williams.
 
Copies of Ms. Mitchard's books will be available for purchase.

The Book of Salt  by Monique T.D. Truong
This novel serves up a wholly original take on Paris in the 1930s through the eyes of Binh, the gay Vietnamese cook employed by Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. Viewing his famous mesdames and their entourage from the kitchen, Binh observes their domestic entanglements while seeking his own place in the world. In a mesmerizing tale of yearning, the author takes us back to Binh's youthful servitude in Saigon under colonial rule, to his life as a galley hand at sea, to his brief, fateful encounters in Paris with Paul Robeson and the young Ho Chi Minh.

    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.
