    Contact: Rachel Steele   978-640-4490 x 203   rsteele@tewksburypl.org
   

The library's Evening Book Group is reading The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin this month.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk by the end of May. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book:  For much of her life, Anne Morrow, the shy daughter of the U.S. ambassador to Mexico, has stood in the shadows of those around her, including her millionaire father and vibrant older sister, who often steals the spotlight. Then Anne, a college senior with hidden literary aspirations, travels to Mexico City to spend Christmas with her family. There she meets Colonel Charles Lindbergh, fresh off his celebrated 1927 solo flight across the Atlantic. Enthralled by Charles’s assurance and fame, Anne is certain the celebrated aviator has scarcely noticed her. But she is wrong. Charles sees in Anne a kindred spirit, a fellow adventurer, and her world will be changed forever. The two marry in a headline-making wedding. Hounded by adoring crowds and hunted by an insatiable press, Charles shields himself and his new bride from prying eyes, leaving Anne to feel her life falling back into the shadows. In the years that follow, despite her own major achievements—she becomes the first licensed female glider pilot in the United States—Anne is viewed merely as the aviator’s wife. The fairy-tale life she once longed for will bring heartbreak and hardships, ultimately pushing her to reconcile her need for love and her desire for independence, and to embrace, at last, life’s infinite possibilities for change and happiness. (From the publisher.)

The Tewksbury Library is honored to be the first library Giglio has performed at since her recovery. Giglio, a local up-and-coming professional vocalist with two CDs to her name, recently suffered a near fatal stroke that turned her world upside down. Completely paralyzed on one side, confined to a wheelchair, and with her signing voice stolen from her at the height of her career, Giglio was devasted. But with fierce determination and fortitude, she faced down every setback and obstacle in her path. Overcoming paralysis and regaining her singing voice, Giglio returned to the stage just a year after her stroke. Q&A and book selling and signing after the event for those interested. Limited to 75 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

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.

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 commentatres 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.

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.

Alessandro Massarotti, PhD, Associate of the Department of Astronomy at Harvard University, will discuss recent advances in planetary exploration and the search for alien life. Massarotti will highlight several new developments in the astronomy field, including:

  • 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.

In addition to teaching astrobiology at the Harvard Extension School, Massarotti is an Associate Professor of Physics, Physics & Astronomy Department Chair, and Earth and Planetary Science Program Director, at Stonehill College. Q&A after the presentation.

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.

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.

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 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.
