misc_none 7:30 PM  -  8:30 PM Author Lecture with Michael Tougias Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Michael Tougias  “The Finest Hours”

Program is at Southgate Theater at 30 Julio Drive in Shrewsbury 

Join us for a visit from author Michael J. Tougias; a New York Times bestselling author and co-author of 24 books. Among his bestsellers are The Finest Hours (of which the Disney Motion Pictures' version opened in 45 countries in January 2016), Fatal Forecast, OverboardKing Philip's War, and There's A Porcupine In My Outhouse: The Vermont Misadventures of a Mountain Man Wannabe. Tougias lectures across the country on each of his book topics.

The Finest Hours is a true story of the Coast Guard’s greatest small-boat rescue, which happened when two tanker ships simultaneously split in half during a treacherous nor’easter storm off Cape Cod in 1952. . Both vessels were World War II surplus and broke in two by the storm. All four halves floated and the narrative tracks four separate search-and-rescue efforts. Bernie Webber gathered a small crew of volunteers to venture into the storm in a 36-foot lifeboat to find the foundering half of the Pendleton, one of the ships that had split.

The program is free and open to the public, but space is limited and advance registration is highly recommended. Registration is available by calling the library at 508-842-0081 ext. 3.

misc_none 2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Author Visit - Kate Clifford Larson Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Priya Rathnam   508-841-8531   prathnam@cwmars.org
   

The lives of Joseph and Rose Kennedy's children and grandchildren have been extensively examined in the media. The “Camelot” years of JFK and Jackie, John's and Bobby's assassinations and Ted's personal and political life are part of our history. However, there is one Kennedy about whom we've known little, until now. Kate Larson’s latest work, Rosemary, the hidden Kennedy daughter, reveals the central role the tragic life of the Kennedys’ eldest daughter played in shaping one of our nation’s most famous families. Joe and Rose Kennedy’s strikingly beautiful eldest daughter attended exclusive schools, was presented as a debutante to the queen of England, and traveled the world with her high spirited sisters. Yet Rosemary was intellectually disabled, a secret fiercely guarded by her powerful and glamorous family. Larson, using major new sources—Rose Kennedy’s diaries and correspondence, letters from Rosemary’s teachers and doctors, and exclusive family interviews— brings Rosemary alive as a girl adored but left far behind by her competitive siblings. Larson will talk of both the sensitive care Rose and Joe gave to Rosemary and then —as the family’s standing reached an apex—the often desperate and duplicitous arrangements the Kennedys made to keep her away from home as she became increasingly difficult in her early twenties. It was an experimental lobotomy gone terribly wrong that ultimately inspired her siblings to direct attention to the plight of the disabled, transforming the lives of millions. 

Kate Clifford Larson is the author of two other critically acclaimed biographies, including Bound for the Promised Land: Harriet Tubman, Portrait of an American Hero, and The Assassin's Accomplice: Mary Surratt and the Plot to Assassinate Abraham Lincoln. Her book on Rosemary Kennedy spent eleven weeks on the best seller list, and was chosen by People Magazine as one of the top 10 books of 2015. She holds a doctorate in history from the University of New Hampshire, specializing in 19th and 20th century U.S. Women's and African American history.

Our first selection is CALVIN by Martine Leavitt.  This story is equal parts adventure, love story, and heart-felt drama...and it’s only 192 pages long!  Give it a try!    Register starting three weeks before!
