    Contact: Ellen or Sarah   978-686-4080 x16   ssullivan@nevinslibrary.org
   

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.

Join us to talk about this month's book, Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai. New Members welcome!  

Please call ext. 26 to get a copy of the book; please read it before our meeting. Refreshments will be served.

Summary: Moving to America turns Hà's life inside out. For all the 10 years of her life, Hà has only known Saigon: the thrills of its markets, the joy of its traditions, the warmth of her friends close by, and the beauty of her very own papaya tree. But now the Vietnam War has reached her home. Hà and her family are forced to flee as Saigon falls, and they board a ship headed toward hope. In America, Hà discovers the foreign world of Alabama: the coldness of its strangers, the dullness of its food, the strange shape of its landscape, and the strength of her very own family. This is the moving story of one girl's year of change, dreams, grief, and healing as she journeys from one country to another, one life to the next. Source MVLC Catalog.

Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin
For almost four decades Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City has blazed its own trail through popular culture—from a groundbreaking newspaper serial to a classic novel, to a public television event. This is the first of nine novels about the denizens of the mythic apartment house at 28 Barbary Lane, San Francisco.  An indelible portrait of an era that changed forever the way we live.

We are very excited to welcome Hank Phillippi Ryan back to Nevins Library!

She will be here to speak about Say No More, the latest in the thrilling Jane Ryland series.

About the book:

When Boston reporter Jane Ryland reports a hit and run, she soon learns she saw more than a car crash—she witnessed the collapse of an alibi. Working on an expose of sexual assaults on college campuses for the station's new documentary unit, Jane's just convinced a date rape victim to reveal her heartbreaking experience on camera. However, a disturbing anonymous message—SAY NO MORE—has Jane really and truly scared.Homicide detective Jake Brogan is on the hunt for the murderer of Avery Morgan, a hot-shot Hollywood screenwriter. Her year as a college guest lecturer just ended at the bottom of her swimming pool in the tight-knit and tight-lipped Boston community called The Reserve. As Jake chips his way through a code of silence as shatterproof as any street gang, he'll learn that one newcomer to the neighborhood may have a secret of her own.A young woman faces a life-changing decision—should she go public about her assault? Jane and Jake—now semi-secretly engaged and beginning to reveal their relationship to the world—are both on a quest for answers as they try to balance the consequences of the truth.

Copies of Hank's books will be available for purchase and signing.  Refreshments will be available.

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.

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.

Tales from the Home of the World’s Worst Weather

An infamous place of extremes, 6,288-foot Mount Washington, New Hampshire has been captivating audiences for hundreds of years.

While many places on Earth experience severe weather, few are inhabited by humans 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mount Washington Observatory has been operating a continuously-staffed scientific outpost on this remote peak since 1932, providing the Observatory many remarkable stories and an intimate knowledge of the mountain.

Through the years, the hardy men and women of the Observatory have experienced white-out blizzards, stunning 110-mile vistas, and everything in between. They have survived a 231mph wind gust, endless days of disorienting fog, and snow drifts more than 20 feet tall. They have worked with scientists and celebrities, students and snow rangers. They have amassed one of North America's longest continuous climate records, and developed an intimate understanding of the place known as the "Home of the World's Worst Weather."

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.
