Join us for a book discussion of The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure, by Rachel Friedman. Rachel Friedman has always been the consummate good girl who does well in school and plays it safe, so the college grad surprises no one more than herself when, on a whim (and in an effort to escape impending life decisions), she buys a ticket to Ireland, a place she has never visited. There she forms an unlikely bond with a free-spirited Australian girl, a born adventurer who spurs Rachel on to a yearlong odyssey that takes her to three continents, fills her life with newfound friends, and gives birth to a previously unrealized passion for adventure.                                                                

The Biography Book Group meets once a month on a Monday night from 6:30-7:30 p.m. We read biographies, memoirs, autobiographies, and travel narratives. A variety of themes will be explored throughout the year.

For our tween and teen patrons in grades 5-12.  Have a middle or high schooler who loves to take photos and wants to learn how cameras work and develop their eye? Have them join our photography club! Run by local photographer/library LSTA grant consultant, Melissa Naclerio and teen librarian, Meghan Witherell, the photography club will learn to take photos with a variety of devices.  Youth are encouraged to bring their own device to use (cell phone camera, digital camera etc) and/or take turns using the photography club's DSLR camera.  Each session participants will learn new skills, practice and discuss photography with other youth!

 
Parents/legal guardians should note the following:
1. Each youth will be asked to have a parent sign a photography release form for the library so that they may appear in photos taken during the sessions which may be used by the library on social media and other print materials etc. If you have signed up your child and would like to not have them appear in photos please contact Meghan Witherell at mwitherell@sailsinc.org
 
2. Photography club may use the Balfour Riverwalk Park (the park next to the library) to take photos, for this reason parents will be asked to sign a permission form stating they are aware the club may venture into the park during the sessions if weather permits.
 
3. The Attleboro Public Library is not responsible for cameras or other devices youth bring to the session.  Youth must be responsible enough to care for their own items during the club.
 
Space in the club is limited and registration is required to attend.  Please register here.

For our tween and teen patrons in grades 5-12.  Have a middle or high schooler who loves to take photos and wants to learn how cameras work and develop their eye? Have them join our photography club! Run by local photographer/library LSTA grant consultant, Melissa Naclerio and teen librarian, Meghan Witherell, the photography club will learn to take photos with a variety of devices.  Youth are encouraged to bring their own device to use (cell phone camera, digital camera etc) and/or take turns using the photography club's DSLR camera.  Each session participants will learn new skills, practice and discuss photography with other youth!

 
Parents/legal guardians should note the following:
1. Each youth will be asked to have a parent sign a photography release form for the library so that they may appear in photos taken during the sessions which may be used by the library on social media and other print materials etc. If you have signed up your child and would like to not have them appear in photos please contact Meghan Witherell at mwitherell@sailsinc.org
 
2. Photography club may use the Balfour Riverwalk Park (the park next to the library) to take photos, for this reason parents will be asked to sign a permission form stating they are aware the club may venture into the park during the sessions if weather permits.
 
3. The Attleboro Public Library is not responsible for cameras or other devices youth bring to the session.  Youth must be responsible enough to care for their own items during the club.
 
Space in the club is limited and registration is required to attend.  Please register here.

On September 8, 1941, eleven weeks after Hitler launched Operation Barbarossa, his brutal surprise attack on the Soviet Union, Leningrad was surrounded. The siege was not lifted for two and a half years, by which time some three quarters of a million Leningraders had died of starvation. Anna Reid's Leningrad is a gripping, authoritative narrative history of this dramatic moment in the twentieth century, interwoven with indelible personal accounts of daily siege life drawn from diarists on both sides.

Tonight we'll be discussing The Blessing Way by Tony Hillerman.

Homicide is always an abomination, but there is something exceptionally disturbing about the victim discovered in a high lonely place, a corpse with a mouth full of sand, abandoned at a crime scene seemingly devoid of tracks or useful clues. Though it goes against his better judgment, Navajo Tribal Police Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn cannot help but suspect the hand of a supernatural killer.

Tonight we'll be discussing The Godwulf Manuscript by Robert B. Parker.

The first in the series featuring private detective Spenser, sees Spenser hired to return a rare stolen fourteenth-century manuscript to its rightful owners, a Boston university who has hired him. Spenser earned his degree in the school of hard knocks so he is hardly surprised that his only clue is a radical student with four bullets in his chest.

Based on exhaustive research and never-before-seen diaries and letters of the saboteurs, The Winter Fortress is a compulsively readable narrative about a group of young men who endured soul-crushing setbacks and Gestapo hunts and survived in one of the coldest, most inhospitable places on earth to save the world from destruction.

Tonight we'll be discussing The Enemy by Lee Child.

Jack Reacher. Hero. Loner. Soldier. Soldier’s son. An elite military cop, he was one of the army’s brightest stars. But in every cop’s life there is a turning point. One case. One messy, tangled case that can shatter a career. Turn a lawman into a renegade. And make him question words like honor, valor, and duty. For Jack Reacher, this is that case.

This month we will be reading The Rape of Nanking: the Forgotten Holocaust of WWII by Iris Chang.

In December 1937, the Japanese army invaded the ancient city of Nanking, systematically raping, torturing, and murdering more than 300,000 Chinese civilians. This book tells the story from three perspectives: of the Japanese soldiers who performed it, of the Chinese civilians who endured it, and of a group of Europeans and Americans who refused to abandon the city and were able to create a safety zone that saved many.

World War II changed the course of history. Douglas MacArthur changed the course of World War II. MacArthur at War will go deeper into this transformative period of his life than previous biographies, drilling into the military strategy that Walter R.

Tonight we'll be discussing The Neon Rain by James Lee Burke.

Detective Dave Robicheaux has fought too many battles: in Vietnam, with killers and hustlers, with police brass, and with the bottle. Lost without his wife’s love, Robicheaux’s haunted soul mirrors the intensity and dusky mystery of New Orleans’ French Quarter — the place he calls home, and the place that nearly destroys him when he becomes involved in the case of a young prostitute whose body is found in a bayou. Thrust into the world of drug lords and arms smugglers, Robicheaux must face down a subterranean criminal world and come to terms with his own bruised heart in order to survive.
