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.

ent_masks_bw 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM SUMMER LIVING HISTORY SERIES: An Evening with Queen Victoria Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    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.

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

J. Kelly Beatty, Senior Editor for Sky and Telescope magazine, will discuss the upcoming solar eclipse. On August 21, the Moon’s shadow will cross the continental U.S. for the first time since 1979 -- and the first time it’s traveled coast-to-coast since 1918. This total solar eclipse, whose path goes through 13 states, promises to be among the most widely observed in history. It’s already the most widely anticipated, as many hotels within the path of totality sold out two years in advance.  Beatty will provide an overview of the nature of solar eclipses, important past ones in U.S. history, and helpful advice for seeing this year’s event successfully. An award-winning writer and communicator, Beatty has been explaining the science and wonder of astronomy to the public since 1974. He provides interviews and guest commentaries on National Public Radio and The Weather Channel. Beatty also serves on the Board of Directors for the International Dark-Sky Association. Q&A after the presentation. Limited to 75 seats. Please note the late start time. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

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

Enjoy a one-hour performance from actress Sheryl Faye as she portrays Amelia EarhartAmelia Earhart’s fearless, adventuresome spirit leads to hair-raising rides down her homemade roller coaster, and she is enthralled with the wonders of the new “flying machines” during a family vacation to the Iowa State Fair. As she matures, Earhart is fulfilled by her work as a nurse’s aide and begins to consider a career in medicine. This idea “flies out the window,” however, when she pays a pilot $1.00 to take her up for a short “hop” in his plane. From then on, the science of aviation becomes her passion as flying becomes her career. Earhart follows her dreams with an indomitable spirit, and her story will inspire everyone to pursue their own budding interests, whatever they may be, and will also reinforce the importance of family, respect for others and individuality. Sheryl Faye, who received a BFA in Acting from Emerson, currently stars in seven one-woman shows that tour to different schools, libraries and senior centers across New England. Faye writes and performs with StageCoach Improv and has provided the voice of several video game characters. 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.

Enjoy a one-hour concert with 'Poor Howard' Stith and Mike 'Bullfrog' Rogers on the library's event lawn. The duo -- Howard on guitar and vocals and Bullfrog on the harmonica -- bring alive the blues tradition that originated in the Mississippi delta region in the early 20th century in this "Walk Through The Delta" concert. Poor Howard, a scholar of early blues, has been performing for over forty years. He carries on the 12-string guitar style that emerged in the 1930’s. His guitar work and poignant vocals transport audiences back to what American life was like nearly 100 years ago. Bullfrog draws his harmonica style from the playing of Sonny Terry, and although he has mastered many styles from folk to country, he captures perfectly the southern country blues of the Great Depression. Together, they bring alive this important era of music. CDs available for purchase after the concert for those interested. Bring your own chairs or blankets. In the case of inclement weather, the concert will be held in the library's Meeting Room and the first 100 concertgoers to arrive will be permitted entry.

  • Searches for extra-solar planets that are currently under way and are leading to the discovery of Earth-like planets around solar-type stars.
  • Spectacular data from Jupiter's and Saturn's moons, like Titan, Europa, and Enceladus, which may become possible targets of future searches for life in our solar system.
  • Clues being found by geochemists about the Earth's past by analyzing rocks dating from the very first period after the Earth's formation, thus providing a fundamentally new context for research on the transition between chemistry and primordial life.

Fenway Court known today as the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, was willed to the City of Boston for the "education and enjoyment of the public forever," and stands as a monument to her aesthetic sensibilities. Jessa Piaia studied performance at London's Oval House Theatre and graduated from the University of Massachusetts in Boston. Piaia currently works at Harvard University. She conducts most of her historical research at the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe Institute which specializes in the history of women in America. Bring your own chairs or blankets.

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.

Job hunting is frustrating, stressful, and often agonizingly slow. Just getting a call back is difficult, much less getting an interview. 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.

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.

    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.

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

Author Alice Finn will discuss her new book, Smart Women Love Money: 5 Simple, Life-Changing Rules of Investing. Discover how to invest in your financial future with five simple rules that cut through the unnecessarily complex jargon of Wall Street. Learn how to talk about and manage your own investing so that you're in better control of your money and future. Sadly, many studies show that most women have little or no confidence in their investing abilities, and no interest in developing them. 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. Limited to 75 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
