lib_book_red 6:30 PM  -  8:00 PM Evening Book Group Meeting: Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Fowler 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 Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Fowler this month.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk by the end of June. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book:  When beautiful, reckless Southern belle Zelda Sayre meets F. Scott Fitzgerald at a country club dance in 1918, she is seventeen years old and he is a young army lieutenant stationed in Alabama. Before long, the "ungettable" Zelda has fallen for him despite his unsuitability: Scott isn't wealthy or prominent or even a Southerner, and keeps insisting, absurdly, that his writing will bring him both fortune and fame. Her father is deeply unimpressed. But after Scott sells his first novel, This Side of Paradise, to Scribner's, Zelda optimistically boards a train north, to marry him in the vestry of St. Patrick's Cathedral and take the rest as it comes. What comes, here at the dawn of the Jazz Age, is unimagined attention and success and celebrity that will make Scott and Zelda legends in their own time. Everyone wants to meet the dashing young author of the scandalous novel—and his witty, perhaps even more scandalous wife. Zelda bobs her hair, adopts daring new fashions, and revels in this wild new world. Each place they go becomes a playground: New York City, Long Island, Hollywood, Paris, and the French Riviera—where they join the endless party of the glamorous, sometimes doomed Lost Generation that includes Ernest Hemingway, Sara and Gerald Murphy, and Gertrude Stein. Everything seems new and possible. Troubles, at first, seem to fade like morning mist. But not even Jay Gatsby's parties go on forever. Who is Zelda, other than the wife of a famous—sometimes infamous—husband? How can she forge her own identity while fighting her demons and Scott's, too? With brilliant insight and imagination, Therese Anne Fowler brings us Zelda's irresistible story as she herself might have told it.

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

Enjoy a one-hour performance from actress Sally Mummey as she portrays Queen VictoriaIn 1837, teenaged Victoria ascended to the British throne, untrained and innocent. Those who would try to usurp her power underestimated this self-willed intelligent young woman whose mettle sustained her through her 63-year reign. Using Queen Victoria's diary and letters, this program reveals the personal details of a powerful yet humane woman, who took seriously her role as monarch in a time of great expansion. She and her husband, Albert, set an example of high moral character and dedication, a novelty in the royal house after generations of scandal. Through her children she left a royal legacy; an era bears her name. Sally Mummey performs this living history in proper 19th century clothing resplendent with Royal Orders.  Mummey’s passion for the history of the 19th century has led to extensive research into powerful and prominent women in a male-dominated society. Her interest in Queen Victoria was sparked when she read letters between the Queen and Mrs. Lincoln, which revealed striking parallels in their lives. Mummey is an award-winning lifetime member of the Association of Lincoln Presenters. She is also a member of the Auxiliary to the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, the Society of Europe, the Victorian Society, the Surratt Society, and Solo TogetherBring 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.
