lib_book_red 10:30 AM  -  12:30 PM Adult Non-Fiction Book Group: The Prize -- Who's In Charge Of America's Schools by Dale Russakoff Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Christine Sharbrough   978-640-4490   csharbrough@tewksburypl.org
   

The library's Non-Fiction Book Group is reading The Prize: Who's In Charge Of America's Schools by Dale Russakoff this month.  Books will be available at the second-floor Reference Desk by mid-July. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: When Mark Zuckerberg announced his $100 million pledge to transform the Newark schools and create an education model that could be applied to any city in the nation, it looked like a huge win for New Jersey politicians Cory Booker and Chris Christie. But their plan met the opposition of Newark’s key education players, who were fiercely protective of their billion-dollar-a-year system — a prize that, for generations, had enriched seemingly everyone, except Newark’s students. With deeply drawn portraits of everyone from the philanthropists throwing millions at a haphazard plan, to the teachers fighting to reach students damaged by extreme poverty and violence, The Prize is a riveting account of the complexities and challenges that face all of America’s failing schools.

Learn the key elements that will enable you to land the job you want. Learn how to identify the value you bring to your employer and leverage that value to make you stand out from the competition: skills make you a commodity; value makes you unique. Also learn how you can avoid getting caught in the Black Hole of Resumes, how you can get into the mind of the interviewer, how you should deal with difficult questions, and key questions you should always ask. Led by Stephen Balzac, Ph.D., a consultant, author and speaker. He is the president of 7 Steps Ahead, an organizational development firm focused on helping businesses get unstuck. He is also the author of The 36-Hour Course in Organizational Development and Organizational Psychology for Managers.

Enjoy a one-hour performance from actress Judith Kalaora as she portrays Deborah Sampson. Sampson was the first woman to enlist, to fight, and to be honorably discharged from the American Military.  An indentured servant by the age of five, Deborah grew up in a man's world, where women were naught but second-class citizens.  As a self-educated woman, Deborah felt a higher calling, and in May 1782, she bound her chest, tied back her hair, and walked over one hundred and fifty miles to enlist in the 4th Massachusetts Regiment of the Continental Army, under the alias "Robert Shurtlieff." Judith Kalaora is a professional actress, living historian, and educator.  She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Syracuse University, and completed the Globe Education Program at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London. Bring your own chairs or blankets. In the case of inclement weather, the performance will be held in the library's Fairgrieve Wing.  Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

    Contact: Robert Hayes   978-640-4490 x 205   rhayes@tewksburypl.org
   

Author Robert Wilhelm will discuss his new book, Wicked Victorian BostonVictorian Boston was more than just stately brownstones and elite society that graced neighborhoods like Beacon Hill. As the population grew, the city developed a seedy underbelly just below its surface. Illegal saloons, prostitution and sports gambling challenged the image of the Puritan City. Daughters of the Boston Brahmins posed for nude photographs. The grandson of President John Adams was roped into an elaborate confidence game. Reverend William Downs, a local Baptist pastor, was caught in bed with a married parishioner. Author Robert Wilhelm reveals the sinful history behind Boston's Victorian grandeur. Wilhelm is the author of three books, including Murder and Mayhem in Essex County and The Bloody Century, a compilation of true tales of murder in nineteenth-century America. He blogs about historical true crime at Murder by Gaslight (murderbygaslight.com) and The National Night Stick (night-stick.com). Q&A and book selling and signing after the event for those interested. Limited to 75 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

lib_book_red 6:30 PM  -  8:00 PM Evening Book Group Meeting: Villa America by Liza Klaussmann Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Rachel Steele   978-640-4490 x 203   rsteele@tewksburypl.org
   

The library's Evening Book Group is reading Villa America by Liza Klaussmann this month.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk by the end of July. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: A dazzling novel set in the Cap D'Antibes based on the real-life inspirations for Fitzgerald's Tender is The Night. In this gorgeous, glamorous, and affecting novel, Liza Klaussmann does for Sara and Gerald Murphy what Paula McLain and Michael Cunningham did for Ernest Hemingway and Virginia Woolf in The Paris Wife and The Hours. Villa America was in fact a real house on the French Riviera that Sara and Gerald Murphy built to escape to in the 1920's. Members of a group of expat Americans, they were known for their fabulous parties and for making the Riviera into the glamorous place it is today. Their freewheeling days were filled with champagne and caviar, but these were people who kept secrets and who were, of course, heartbreakingly human. This is a stunning story about the Lost Generation, about a marriage, about a golden age which could not last.

Alice Finn is looking to fix that. Finn, a nationally renowned wealth management expert, was featured as "The Giant" by Barron's in its inaugural list of the Top 100 Independent Financial Advisers.  Finn, who has appeared as a top financial adviser on CNBC, has been repeatedly named by Worth Magazine as one of the Top 100 Wealth Advisers in the United States. She is the CEO of PowerHouse Assets LLC, a firm she founded to help women become more engaged in their important financial futures. Q&A and book selling and signing after the event for those interested.
