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

“Americans have grown more confident about their financial acumen since the market meltdown that ended in 2009,” says New York Times Business Editor Jeff Sommer.  “Yet they seem to know less about the subject than they knew then... In fact, misplaced self-confidence is putting millions of people at risk.” 

Do YOU have a written financial plan, reviewed at least annually, that will protect your family in the next recession? Or are you one of the millions of Americans that Jeff Sommer speaks of?

"How To Protect Your Family from the Next Recession" is a community-involved discussion focused on how to best prepare for any recession. Through story sharing, we will take a brief look at the 2008 Recession. Participants will be invited to share their stories. The facilitator will also share her personal story and discuss meaningful actions you can take that may result in the creation of a better financial plan for you and your loved ones. The talk will be both educational and interactive, providing valuable information that you can use to evaluate where you are now, where you desire to go, and the best resources to accomplish your goals.

You will learn that:

  • Financial awareness can reduce stress and anxiety about money.
  • Financial preparedness will allow you to educate your children, live debt free, and retire with dignity and not outlive your money.
  • Everyone’s situation is unique and why the ‘one for the many’ solutions are overall ineffective.

Theresa Mixon, a 2007 Peace Corps Nominee as a Small Enterprise Developer, has a core commitment to economic empowerment for all.  She currently lives in and serves the Merrimack Valley.

The library's Evening Book Group is reading Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng this October.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk beginning the last week of September. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: The story of the Lees, a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. Marilyn and James are determined that Lydia, the middle and favorite child, will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue: for Marilyn, that her daughter becomes a doctor; for James, that Lydia is popular at school, a girl with a busy social life and the center of every party. When Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed. James, consumed by guilt, sets out on a reckless path that may destroy his marriage. Marilyn, devastated and vengeful, is determined to find a responsible party, no matter what the cost. Lydia’s older brother, Nathan, is certain that the neighborhood bad boy, Jack, is somehow involved. But it’s the youngest of the family—Hannah—who observes far more than anyone realizes and who may be the only one who knows the truth about what happened.

About the Book: Kelley Quinn is the owner of Nantucket's Winter Street Inn and the proud father of four grown children: Patrick, a hedge fund manager; Kevin, a bartender; Ava, a school teacher; and Bart, who has recently shocked everyone by joining the Marines. As Christmas approaches, Kelley looks forward to spending the holidays with his family at the inn. But when he walks in on his wife Mitzi kissing another man, utter chaos descends, and things only get more interesting when Kelley's ex-wife, news anchor Margaret Quinn, arrives on the scene. Before the mulled cider is gone, the delightfully dysfunctional Quinn family will survive a love triangle, an unplanned pregnancy, a federal crime, and endless rounds of Christmas caroling in this heart-warming novel about coming home for the holidays.

The library's Evening Book Group is reading The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown this January.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk by the end of December. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: The story of the American Olympic triumph in Nazi Germany. Out of the depths of the Depression comes an irresistible story about beating the odds and finding hope in the most desperate of times—the improbable, intimate account of how nine working-class boys from the American West showed the world at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin what true grit really meant. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.

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

The library's Evening Book Group is reading The Boston Girl by Anita Diamant this February.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk by the end of January. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: Addie Baum is The Boston Girl, born in 1900 to immigrant parents who were unprepared for and suspicious of America and its effect on their three daughters.  Growing up in the North End, then a teeming multicultural neighborhood, Addie’s intelligence and curiosity take her to a world her parents can’t imagine—a world of short skirts, movies, celebrity culture, and new opportunities for women. Addie wants to finish high school and dreams of going to college. She wants a career and to find true love. Written with the same attention to historical detail and emotional resonance that made Anita Diamant’s previous novels bestsellers, The Boston Girl is a moving portrait of one woman’s complicated life in twentieth century America, and a fascinating look at a generation of women finding their places in a changing world.

An actor playing King Lear dies onstage just before a cataclysmic event changes the future of everyone on Earth. What will be valued and what will be discarded?

The library's Evening Book Group is reading After You by Jojo Moyes this month.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk by the end of March. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: 

This unexpected sequel to Moyes's Me Before You reveals what happened to Louisa Clark after that book's heart-wrenching finale. Jojo Moyes gives us two families, as real as our own, whose joys and sorrows will touch you deeply, and where both changes and surprises await. After You is quintessential Jojo Moyes—a novel that will make you laugh, cry, and rejoice at being back in the world she creates. Here she does what few novelists can do—revisits beloved characters and takes them to places neither they nor we ever expected.

The library's Evening Book Group is reading Kitchens of the Great Midwest by Jojo Moyes this month.  Books and discussion guides will be available at the Front Desk by the end of April. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: 

The story of a young woman with a once-in-a-generation palate who becomes the iconic chef behind the country’s most coveted dinner reservation. When Lars Thorvald’s wife, Cynthia, falls in love with wine—and a dashing sommelier—he’s left to raise their baby, Eva, on his own. He’s determined to pass on his love of food to his daughter—starting with pureed pork shoulder. As Eva grows, she finds her solace and salvation in the flavors of her native Minnesota. From Scandinavian lutefisk to hydroponic chocolate habaneros, each ingredient represents one part of Eva’s journey as she becomes the star chef behind a legendary and secretive pop-up supper club, culminating in an opulent and emotional feast that’s a testament to her spirit and resilience.
