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

Author Joseph Votano will discuss his new book, The Shaker Legacies: Hancock and Mount Lebanon.

About The Book: Dozens of beautiful photos, both vintage and contemporary, draw us into the fascinating world of Shaker communities’ accomplishments, their progressive views, and their still-resonating impact on American life. This book focuses specifically on two Shaker villages, Hancock and Mount Lebanon, which were close neighbors situated on either side of the Taconic mountain range bordering New York and Massachusetts. Mount Lebanon was the vibrant voice of Shakerism for over 160 years while Hancock lived in the shadows of its larger sister. Explaining the beliefs that grounded these villages, this book unfolds the Shaker legacies we live with today, involving Shakers’ spiritual beliefs, their social welfare structures, their wide-ranging industries from seeds to herbal medicines to furniture to fancy goods, and their building of villages and of lives with a sense of purpose and permanency.

About The Author: Joseph R. Votano is a freelance photographer who lives in the Boston, Massachusetts, area. He has extensively photographed New England’s architecture, people, and places over the years. His published works include several European photo-travelogues and a photo book on Boston.

About The Event: Limited to 75 seats. A book selling and signing will take place after the event for those interested. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. The library is holding 100 author visits in 2016. This is Author Visit #6.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM AUTHOR VISIT: An Evening with E. Phillip Brown, Author of 'Armenians of the Merrimack Valley' Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Robert Hayes   978-640-4490 x 205   rhayes@mvlc.org
   

Authors E. Phillip Brown and Tom Vartabedian will discuss their new book, Armenians of the Merrimack Valley.

About The Book: When one thinks of the Merrimack Valley, shoe shops and mills come to mind. For that reason, it was a hotbed for Armenian immigrants following World War I and the genocide that robbed Armenia of half its population, with some 1.5 million victims lost at the hands of the Ottoman Turkish Empire and another million people uprooted from their homes and scattered to a Diaspora. Many of these refugees came to the Merrimack Valley settling in the cities of Haverhill, Lawrence, and Lowellto eke out a better life for themselves and their families. Aside from sweatshop labor, they sought work as barbers and mercenaries, business owners and handymen, going to night school for better English standards and keeping their rich heritage and culture intact with their churches and community centers. Despite the discrimination they faced with their strange names and lifestyles, the Armenians remained tenacious and resilient, contributing to the overall welfare of their new promised land.

About The Author: E. Philip Brown is a social studies instructor at Haverhill High School and author of Haverhill Sports Trivia. Tom Vartabedian is a retired writer and photographer with the Haverhill Gazette and an Armenian community activist, especially in the field of genocide education.

About The Event: Limited to 75 seats. A book selling and signing will take place after the event for those interested. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. The library is holding 100 author visits in 2016. This is Author Visit #7.

About The Author: Anthony M. Sammarco is a noted historian and author of more than 60 books on Boston. An educator at the Urban College of Boston, he often lectures on the impact of immigrant groups in Boston in the 19th and 20th centuries and their contributions to the thriving nexus of cultures that led to such groups as the Sons of Italy. He is a proud member of the Renaissance Lodge, OSIA.

Join the library's monthly Book Group for a discussion of Chestnut Street by Maeve Binchy. Copies and discussion guides are available at the Front Desk beginning February 1st. New members are always welcome! No registration required.

About The Book"While she was writing columns for The Irish Times and her best-selling novels, Maeve Binchy also had in mind to write a book that revolved around one street with many characters coming and going. Every once in a while, she would write about one these people. She would then put it in a drawer. "For the future," she would say. The future is now. Just around the corner from St. Jarlath's Crescent (which readers will recognize from Minding Frankie) is Chestnut Street, where neighbors come and go. Behind their closed doors we encounter very different people with different life circumstances, occupations, and sensibilities. Written with the humor and understanding that are earmarks of Maeve Binchy's work, it is a pleasure to be part of this world with all of its joys and sorrows, to get to know the good and the bad, and ultimately to have our hearts warmed by her storytelling." --Annotation from Novelist

The all-black Fifty-fourth Massachusetts Regiment battled against both slavery and discrimination, while Boston's women fought tirelessly against slavery and for their own right to be full citizens of the Union.

Social media is now playing an enormous role in finding, vetting and securing candidates for today's recruiter. 92% of them are leveraging social media as part of their candidate search with 87% stating that LinkedIn is their 'candidate' social media platform of choice.  Yet, it takes them less than six seconds on a profile to determine if a prospective candidate is worthy of future consideration.  So, it's not enough to have a LinkedIn profile, it needs to stand out!  

This workshop is the perfect way to start creating a viable 'brand' presence you'll be proud to share. We'll start from the TOP and hit every component of a LinkedIn profile. Learn how LinkedIn can become one of your most effective job seeking assets!  You'll learn: how to build a complete and keyword rich profile; reach and maintain "all-star" profile strength; become a marketable brand; build online referrals; and expand your business network. Learn more about Judy HERE.

Authors Tammy Rebello and L.F. Blanchard will discuss their new book, Abandoned Asylums of Massachusetts.

About The Book: This collection of photographs, history, and firsthand accounts gives readers a glimpse at the roots of mental health. These vignettes are born of the personal stories of those who worked at these facilities, those who were institutionalized, and their families. The authors took the time to listen to their stories and endeavored to understand their pasts and recognize how these events continue to influence the mental health industry today. Pictured throughout are the physical relics of the placesthe now largely abandoned asylums where these stories unfurled.

About The Authors: Tammy Rebello holds a bachelors degree in communications. Her passion for urban photography has ignited her desire to share the stories of those too often forgotten. Her explorations into these facilities have haunted her with echoes of days past, the deplorable conditions, and a yearning to tell their story through her photographs. L.F. Blanchard has spent more than two decades serving as a peer counselor within her community. She currently holds bachelors degrees in psychology and visual and performing arts. Her passion for helping those who have had extreme and life changing events has fed her desire to understand mental illness and to work toward a better understanding of treatment options.

About The Event: Limited to 75 seats. A book selling and signing will take place after the event for those interested. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. The library is holding 100 author visits in 2016. This is Author Visit #10.

Author J.W. Ocker will discuss his new book, Poe-Land: The Hallowed Haunts of Edgar Allan Poe.

About The Book: Follow the footsteps of the father of American horror fiction!  Edgar Allan Poe was an oddity. His life was odd, his literature is odd, his legacy is odd. Actually, his legacy is the oddest part about him. In Poe-Land: The Hallowed Haunts of Edgar Allan Poe, J. W. Ocker explores Poe's strange physical legacy along the East Coast and across the ocean by touring Poe's homes, examining artifacts from his life--locks of his hair, pieces of his coffin, original manuscripts, the bed where his wife died--and traveling to the many memorials dedicated to Edgar Allan Poe. Along the way, Ocker meets Poe fans from a range of backgrounds and professions--actors, museum managers, collectors, writers, professors, businessmen, sculptors, historians--who have dedicated some part of their lives to Poe and his legacy. Poe-Land is a unique travel diary that follows the afterlife of the poet, author, and critic who invented detective fiction, advanced the emerging genre of science fiction, and elevated the horror genre.

About The Author: J. W. Ocker is the author of two award-winning macabre travelogues, The New England Grimpendium and The New York Grimpendium. He runs the website OTIS: Odd Things I've Seen (oddthingsiveseen.com), where he chronicles his visits to oddities of nature, history, art, and culture. His work has appeared on CNN.com, TheAtlantic.com, Rue Morgue magazine, The Boston Globe, and other places people stick writing. 

About The Event: Limited to 75 seats. A book selling and signing will take place after the event for those interested. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. The library is holding 100 author visits in 2016. This is Author Visit #11.

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

Author Jay Atkinson will discuss his new book, Massacre on the Merrimack: Hannah Duston's Captivity and Revenge in Colonial America.

About The Book: Early on March 15, 1697, a band of Abenaki warriors in service to the French raided the English frontier village of Haverhill, Massachusetts. Striking swiftly, the Abenaki killed twenty-seven men, women, and children, and took thirteen captives, including thirty-nine-year-old Hannah Duston and her week-old daughter, Martha. A short distance from the village, one of the warriors murdered the squalling infant by dashing her head against a tree. After a forced march of nearly one hundred miles, Duston and two companions were transferred to a smaller band of Abenaki, who camped on a tiny island located at the junction of the Merrimack and Contoocook Rivers, several miles north of present day Concord, New Hampshire.

This was the height of King William’s War, both a war of terror and a religious contest, with English Protestantism vying for control of the New World with French Catholicism. After witnessing her infant’s murder, Duston resolved to get even. Two weeks into their captivity, Duston and her companions, a fifty-one-year-old woman and a twelve-year-old boy, moved among the sleeping Abenaki with tomahawks and knives, killing two men, two women, and six children. After returning to the bloody scene alone to scalp their victims, Duston and the others escaped down the Merrimack River in a stolen canoe. They braved treacherous waters and the constant threat of attack and recapture, returning to tell their story and collect a bounty for the scalps.

Was Hannah Duston the prototypical feminist avenger, or the harbinger of the Native American genocide? In this meticulously researched and riveting narrative, bestselling author Jay Atkinson sheds new light on the early struggle for North America.

About The Author: Jay Atkinson, called “the bard of New England toughness” by Men’s Health magazine, is the author of eight books. Caveman Politics was a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Program selection and a finalist for the Discover Great New Writers Award; Ice Time was a Publishers Weekly Notable Book of the Year and a New England Bookseller’s Association bestseller; and Legends of Winter Hill spent seven weeks on the Boston Globe hardcover bestseller list. He has written for the New York Times, Boston Globe, Newsday, Portland Oregonian, Men’s Health, Boston Sunday Herald, and Boston Globe magazine, among other publications. Atkinson teaches writing at Boston University and has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize three times. He grew up hearing Hannah Duston's story in his hometown of Methuen, Massachusetts, which was part of Haverhill until 1726. He lives in Methuen, Massachusetts.

About The BookNearly eighteen, Molly Ayer knows she has one last chance. Just months from "aging out" of the child welfare system, and close to being kicked out of her foster home, a community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping her out of juvie and worse. Vivian Daly has lived a quiet life on the coast of Maine. But in her attic, hidden in trunks, are vestiges of a turbulent past. As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly discovers that she and Vivian aren't as different as they seem to be. A young Irish immigrant orphaned in New York City, Vivian was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance. The closer Molly grows to Vivian, the more she discovers parallels to her own life. A Penobscot Indian, she, too, is an outsider being raised by strangers, and she, too, has unanswered questions about the past. As her emotional barriers begin to crumble, Molly discovers that she has the power to help Vivian find answers to mysteries that have haunted her for her entire life - answers that will ultimately free them both.

About The Book

Henrietta Lacks, as HeLa, is known to present-day scientists for her cells from cervical cancer. She was a poor Southern tobacco farmer who worked the same land as her slave ancestors, yet her cells were taken without her knowledge and still live decades after her death. Cells descended from her may weigh more than 50M metric tons. 
HeLa cells were vital for developing the polio vaccine; uncovered secrets of cancer, viruses, and the atom bomb’s effects; helped lead to important advances like in vitro fertilization, cloning, and gene mapping; and have been bought and sold by the billions. Yet Henrietta Lacks was buried in an unmarked grave.

About The Book

A vivid and compelling novel about a woman who becomes entangled in an affair with Edgar Allan Poe—at the same time she becomes the unwilling confidante of his much-younger wife. It is 1845, and Frances Osgood is desperately trying to make a living as a writer in New York; not an easy task for a woman—especially one with two children and a philandering portrait painter as her husband. ...She meets the handsome and mysterious Poe at a literary party, and the two have an immediate connection. Poe wants Frances to meet with his wife since she claims to be an admirer of her poems, and Frances is curious to see the woman whom Edgar married. As Frances spends more and more time with the intriguing couple, her intense attraction for Edgar brings her into dangerous territory. And Mrs. Poe, who acts like an innocent child, is actually more manipulative and threatening than she appears. As Frances and Edgar’s passionate affair escalates, Frances must decide whether she can walk away before it’s too late… Set amidst the fascinating world of New York’s literati, this smart and sexy novel offers a unique view into the life of one of history’s most unforgettable literary figures.
