The librarians 'book talk' each book by briefly highlighting basic plot lines, major characters and geographic locations.  Each talk will have a different theme or discuss a different genre.  Selections from each book are read aloud.  We would love to hear what your favorite authors are and we invite your suggestions for future book talks. Please join us for an informal conversation about books!

Monthly meeting of the Portsmouth Public Library Fiction Book Club. All welcome! Whenever possible copies of each title are borrowed from New Hampshire libraries in advance. Books are available for check out with your PPL card.

Monday, January 12 | The Long Walk Home by Will North

“In this lyrical first novel about love and loss by a ghostwriter for Bill Clinton and Al Gore, Alec, a former speech writer for Jimmy Carter, walks 'like a pall bearer' from Heathrow Airport to North Wales to scatter the ashes of his late wife.” – Publishers Weekly

Monday, February 9 | The Girl Who Fell From The Sky by Heidi Durrow

“Durrow's debut draws from her own upbringing as the brown-skinned, blue-eyed daughter of a Danish woman and a black G.I. to create Rachel Morse, a young girl with an identical heritage growing up in the early 1980s.” – Publishers Weekly

Monday, March 9 | The Year We Left Home by Jean Thompson

Bookended by two wars—Vietnam and Iraq—Thompson's third novel sketches the travails of an Iowa family over three decades. Matriarch Audrey neatly sums up the episodic novel's grand theme: 'she'd been born into one world, hopeful and normal, and now she lived in another, full of sadness and failure.' ” – Publishers Weekly

Further titles TBA. Facilitated by PPL Staff.

Film screening of "More than a Month".  This is not just a movie about a yearly tradition or history or being Black in America.  It is about what it means to be an American, to fight for one's rightful place in the American landscape.  It is a provocative gambit to open a public onversation about the idea of ethnic heritage months, separating it from American history on the whole, denigrates the role of Black people and black culture throughout American history.

Calling all 9th-12th graders!

Please join the Teen Book Club-  a collaboration between the PHS Teen Literary Club & Portsmouth Public Library's Youth services!

In February, we will be discussing the book The Good Braider and chatting with the author Terry Farish! 

The Good Braider was selected as the 2013 Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year and a book of Outstanding Merit.

In spare free verse laced with unforgettable images, Viola's strikingly original voice sings out the story of her family's journey from war-torn Sudan, to Cairo, and finally to Portland, Maine. Here, in the sometimes too close embrace of the local Southern Sudanese Community, she dreams of South Sudan while she tries to navigate the strange world of America—a world where a girl can wear a short skirt, get a tattoo, or even date a boy; a world that puts her into sharp conflict with her traditional mother who, like Viola, is struggling to braid together the strands of a displaced life. Terry Farish's haunting novel is not only a riveting story of escape and survival, but the universal tale of a young immigrant's struggle to build a life on the cusp of two cultures. -- from the publisher

Monday, January 12 | The Long Walk Home by Will North

“In this lyrical first novel about love and loss by a ghostwriter for Bill Clinton and Al Gore, Alec, a former speech writer for Jimmy Carter, walks 'like a pall bearer' from Heathrow Airport to North Wales to scatter the ashes of his late wife.” – Publishers Weekly

Monday, February 9 | The Girl Who Fell From The Sky by Heidi Durrow

“Durrow's debut draws from her own upbringing as the brown-skinned, blue-eyed daughter of a Danish woman and a black G.I. to create Rachel Morse, a young girl with an identical heritage growing up in the early 1980s.” – Publishers Weekly

Monday, March 9 | The Year We Left Home by Jean Thompson

Bookended by two wars—Vietnam and Iraq—Thompson's third novel sketches the travails of an Iowa family over three decades. Matriarch Audrey neatly sums up the episodic novel's grand theme: 'she'd been born into one world, hopeful and normal, and now she lived in another, full of sadness and failure.' ” – Publishers Weekly

Monthly meeting of the Portsmouth Public Library Fiction Book Club. All welcome! Whenever possible copies of each title are borrowed from New Hampshire libraries in advance. Books are available for check out with your PPL card.

Monday, January 12 | The Long Walk Home by Will North

“In this lyrical first novel about love and loss by a ghostwriter for Bill Clinton and Al Gore, Alec, a former speech writer for Jimmy Carter, walks 'like a pall bearer' from Heathrow Airport to North Wales to scatter the ashes of his late wife.” – Publishers Weekly

Monday, February 9 | The Girl Who Fell From The Sky by Heidi Durrow

“Durrow's debut draws from her own upbringing as the brown-skinned, blue-eyed daughter of a Danish woman and a black G.I. to create Rachel Morse, a young girl with an identical heritage growing up in the early 1980s.” – Publishers Weekly

Monday, March 9 | The Year We Left Home by Jean Thompson

Bookended by two wars—Vietnam and Iraq—Thompson's third novel sketches the travails of an Iowa family over three decades. Matriarch Audrey neatly sums up the episodic novel's grand theme: 'she'd been born into one world, hopeful and normal, and now she lived in another, full of sadness and failure.' ” – Publishers Weekly

Further titles TBA. Facilitated by PPL Staff.

The Peace of Mind series at PPL continues. Peace of Mind events are designed to help you prepare for and work through life's challenges. These events are free and open to the public. 

How do we meet the challenges of family caregiving with resiliency, compassion and joy? What do we do with the stress, worry and sadness that deplete our energy and enthusiasm?

Instructor Liz Korabek-Emerson will show you how to be resilient by renewing and nourishing yourself with the simple and easy tools of mindfulness and compassionate self-care. This workshop will help you increase your stamina when providing day-to-day care, 
and to enjoy the time you have with family.

Monthly meeting of the Portsmouth Public Library Fiction Book Club. All welcome! Whenever possible copies of each title are borrowed from New Hampshire libraries in advance. Books are available for check out with your PPL card.

Monday, January 12 | The Long Walk Home by Will North

“In this lyrical first novel about love and loss by a ghostwriter for Bill Clinton and Al Gore, Alec, a former speech writer for Jimmy Carter, walks 'like a pall bearer' from Heathrow Airport to North Wales to scatter the ashes of his late wife.” – Publishers Weekly

Monday, February 9 | The Girl Who Fell From The Sky by Heidi Durrow

“Durrow's debut draws from her own upbringing as the brown-skinned, blue-eyed daughter of a Danish woman and a black G.I. to create Rachel Morse, a young girl with an identical heritage growing up in the early 1980s.” – Publishers Weekly

Monday, March 9 | The Year We Left Home by Jean Thompson

Bookended by two wars—Vietnam and Iraq—Thompson's third novel sketches the travails of an Iowa family over three decades. Matriarch Audrey neatly sums up the episodic novel's grand theme: 'she'd been born into one world, hopeful and normal, and now she lived in another, full of sadness and failure.' ” – Publishers Weekly

Monthly meeting of the Portsmouth Public Library Fiction Book Club. All welcome! Whenever possible copies of each title are borrowed from New Hampshire libraries in advance. Books are available for check out with your PPL card.

Monday, January 12 | The Long Walk Home by Will North

“In this lyrical first novel about love and loss by a ghostwriter for Bill Clinton and Al Gore, Alec, a former speech writer for Jimmy Carter, walks 'like a pall bearer' from Heathrow Airport to North Wales to scatter the ashes of his late wife.” – Publishers Weekly

Monday, February 9 | The Girl Who Fell From The Sky by Heidi Durrow

“Durrow's debut draws from her own upbringing as the brown-skinned, blue-eyed daughter of a Danish woman and a black G.I. to create Rachel Morse, a young girl with an identical heritage growing up in the early 1980s.” – Publishers Weekly

Monday, March 9 | The Year We Left Home by Jean Thompson

Bookended by two wars—Vietnam and Iraq—Thompson's third novel sketches the travails of an Iowa family over three decades. Matriarch Audrey neatly sums up the episodic novel's grand theme: 'she'd been born into one world, hopeful and normal, and now she lived in another, full of sadness and failure.' ” – Publishers Weekly

Further titles TBA. Facilitated by PPL Staff.
