This month we are reading: The Burgess Boys by Elizabeth Strout

Summary: Haunted by the freak accident that killed their father when they were children, Jim and Bob Burgess escaped from their Maine hometown of Shirley Falls for New York City as soon as they possibly could. Jim, a sleek, successful corporate lawyer, has belittled his bighearted brother their whole lives, and Bob, a Legal Aid attorney who idolizes Jim, has always taken it in stride. But their long-standing dynamic is upended when their sister, Susan—the Burgess sibling who stayed behind—urgently calls them home. Her lonely teenage son, Zach, has gotten himself into a world of trouble, and Susan desperately needs their help. And so the Burgess brothers return to the landscape of their childhood, where the long-buried tensions that have shaped and shadowed their relationship begin to surface in unexpected ways that will change them forever.

Canals of the Merrimack with Bill Gerber

This presentation provides an overview of the Merrimack River as an artery of transportation, and show and describes what remains of the system today. Before they were adapted to power New England mills, the falls and rapids of the Merrimack River were serious obstructions to travel. These impediments, and the absence of good roads, drove more than a decade of efforts to improve river navigability. Between 1792 and 1848, nine companies constructed 13 canals, incorporating 36 locks, along the main river channel between Concord NH and the sea or, via the Middlesex Canal, to Boston. Lesser improvements were made by a few of these companies at several more rapids. Additional canals were built by still other firms near the mouths of the Nashua and Piscataquog Rivers, and possibly at one or more industrial sites.  Registration is required.

Ken Warchol became involved with the Massachusetts Federation of Beekeepers in the 1970's.  He is considered the bee whisperer and he is a Worcester County Bee Inspector.  He is a 6th generation caretaker of bees; his family’s practice originated in Poland in the 1840's.  In 1999, Ken was chair of the 100th Anniversary Celebration of the Worcester County Bee Association, the oldest county beekeeping association in the country. Warchol has continued to speak to a wide variety of interest groups and beekeeping associations throughout New England mostly about honeybee abnormalities and disease.  He has published several articles in the American Bee Journal.

   10:00 AM  -  2:00 PM Hat Fashion Tea Party  
    Contact: Margie Walker   978-388-8148   mwalker@amesburylibrary.org
   

 

Join us for a presentation of the hats that were made at the Merrimack Hat Factory here in Amesbury.  "The Hattery" consists of a sampling of high fashion ladies' hats, men's hats, novelties and memorabilia produced by the Merrimack Hat Corporation. The Merrimack Hat Factory rose from humble beginnings in 1856 to become the largest maker of hats and hat bodies in the U.S. in 1946. For over 100 years the Merrimack Hat Corporation was a vital part of Amesbury's economy. Explore the different hats that were made through photographs.  The Merrimack Hat Factory closed in 1971.  Suzanne Cote of the Hat Museum will have some of the hats on display.

At noon we will have an old fashion tea party.  We will serve different types of tea, tea sandwiches and dessert.

Rita Parisi will present the 1908 Tea.  In 1908 the world was on the cusp of change.  The traditions of the Victorians were giving way to the modern way of thinking.  The automobile, airplane, changes in fashion, entertainment and social conventions were altering the landscape of people's lives forever.  Mrs. Gordon entertains you during her afternoon tea as she tells you about her recent trip to Boston.  Then engage in an open discussion as she shares with you her latest issue of Ladies Home Journal.

Rita Parisi has been entertaining New England audiences for 15 years.

Percussionist, educator,and the author of Heartbeat, Warble, and the Electric Powwow: American Indian Music, Craig Harris leads this exciting multimedia, participatory, and stereotype-defying celebration of American Indian music.Combining archival recordings, a video montage, thought-provoking storytelling, and collective music-making, this 90-minute program celebrates the rich diversity of Indigenous music from the "heartbeat" of powwow drums and the “warble” of wooden flutes to the electrifying sounds of Native infused rock, jazz, reggae, country music, blues, hip-hip, and electronic dance music. 

Craig Harris has written music-oriented articles, reviews, and photographs for newspapers, magazines, and websites for more than four decades. A skilled percussionist, Harris has appeared in concert and/or on recordings with Rod MacDonald, C.J. Chenier & His Red Hot Louisiana Zydeco Band, Jonathan Edwards, Greg Brown, Don White, Melanie, Rick Danko (The Band), and Merl Saunders. He currently plays with the Gaea Star Band, with whom he cohosts the weekly Gaea Crystal Radio Hour for the Dream Vision 7 Radio Network. Applehead/SONY released their CD, Who We Are in November 2015. Possessing a Master’s in education, Harris taught music in public and charter schools for a quarter of a century before launching his multicultural, participatory, and fun-for-all-ages Drum Away the Blues program in 2009.

   7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Hungrytown  
    Contact: Kim Butler   978-388-8148   kbutler@amesburylibrary.org
   

Folk duo Hungrytown, Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson met in New York City, where they had already been performing regularly–Hall as a jazz singer, and Anderson as a drummer for a variety of garage bands. Their introduction to folk music came later, when a close friend entrusted to them her collection of 1960's folk albums and her guitar. Inspired by the grit and true-to-life experiences she heard in these traditional ballads, Hall was inspired to write the lyrics that later became her first songs, aided by Anderson’s flair for musical arrangement. Soon afterwards, Hall released two solo albums, Sings! (1999) and Sunday Afternoon (2002), both produced by Anderson. In the winter of 2003, the duo quit their boring desk jobs, moved to the green hills of Vermont, and decided to pursue a full-time career as touring musicians.

They released their first CD, Hungrytown, in 2008; Any Forgotten Thing in 2011; and Further West in 2015. The couple continue to spend more than half of each year on the road, especially roads in North America, Europe and New Zealand. Hungrytown’s music has received extensive radio airplay worldwide and has appeared on several television shows, including the Independent Film Channel’s hit series, Portlandia.
