A Look Back Book Group

"A Look Back" book group will meet to discuss The Country of the Pointed Firs by Sarah Orne Jewett.

The Country of the Pointed Firs (1896), by Sarah Orne Jewett, tells a story spanning three months' time in the life of a small coastal town called Dunnet Landing in nineteenth-century Maine. A lone female visitor arrives and finds lodging with the widowed Mrs. Todd, the town's herbalist, who introduces the visitor to many ofthe town's inhabitants. The visitor's impressions of the people she meets start out simply, and then almost invisibly they crescendo into a deep, intense human portrait.

Auburn Page Turners Book Group

Join the Auburn Page Turners for some banter on the fiction title Circling the Sun: A Novel by Paula McLain.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR, BOOKPAGE, AND SHELF AWARENESS • “Paula McLain is considered the new star of historical fiction, and for good reason. Fans of The Paris Wife will be captivated by Circling the Sun, which . . . is both beautifully written and utterly engrossing.”—Ann Patchett, Country Living

Paula McLain, author of the phenomenal bestseller The Paris Wife, now returns with her keenly anticipated new novel, transporting readers to colonial Kenya in the 1920s. Circling the Sun brings to life a fearless and captivating woman—Beryl Markham, a record-setting aviator caught up in a passionate love triangle with safari hunter Denys Finch Hatton and Karen Blixen, who as Isak Dinesen wrote the classic memoir Out of Africa.

Brought to Kenya from England as a child and then abandoned by her mother, Beryl is raised by both her father and the native Kipsigis tribe who share his estate. Her unconventional upbringing transforms Beryl into a bold young woman with a fierce love of all things wild and an inherent understanding of nature’s delicate balance. But even the wild child must grow up, and when everything Beryl knows and trusts dissolves, she is catapulted into a string of disastrous relationships.

A Brief History of Touring and Vacationing in New England

Family vacations and memories often come flooding back to our minds this time of year. But vacations were not always a yearly thing. Join Bethel resident and historian David Jones at the Auburn Public Library on June 4 at 1 pm for Holidays Past: A Brief History of Touring and Vacationing in New England.

Using illustrative maps courtesy of The Osher Map Library, Jones will talk about how development, transportation innovations, and urbanization contributed to the concept of family vacations. Looking at the rise in tourism and vacationing in the 19th and 20th centuries, Jones will talk about why people went on vacation, where they went and how they got there.

Jones, who was a long-time Maine summer visitor, now lives year-round in Bethel. He teaches history at outposts of University of Maine, Augusta in South Paris and Rumford.

Film: Taking Woodstock

Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Woodstock with the showing of the film Taking Woodstock.

It's 1969, and Elliot Tiber, a down-on-his-luck interior designer in Greenwich Village, New York, has to move back upstate to help his parents run their dilapidated Catskills motel, The El Monaco. The bank's about to foreclose; his father wants to burn the place down, but hasn't paid the insurance; and Elliot is still figuring how to come out to his parents. When Elliot hears that a neighboring town has pulled the permit on a hippie music festival, he calls the producers, thinking he could drum up some much-needed business for the motel. Three weeks later, half a million people are on their way to his neighbor's farm in White Lake, N.Y., and Elliot finds himself swept up in a generation-defining experience that would change his life, and American culture, forever. The film features a standout ensemble cast and songs from a score of '60s musical icons, including The Grateful Dead, The Doors, Jefferson Airplane and Country Joe and the Fish -- plus a new recording of "Freedom" from Richie Havens.

Hercules in Hell: A Greek Myth

The 2019 Summer Library Program theme is "A Universe of Stories"  --  join us today as we kick off this summer's program with Master Storyteller Odds Bodkin!

With thunderous 12-string guitar he plays as he speaks, Master Storyteller Odds Bodkin dives deep into Greek mythology with this award-winning adventure story, HERCULES IN HELL.  The great hero has just awakened in the Underworld, standing before the King and Queen of the Dead.  Yes, Hercules is dead, but he should not be here.  As the son of Zeus, he should have awakened on Mt. Olympus.

Only after he tells his life story to the King and Queen will he be freed, however.  And so he begins.  His youth.  His murders.  His bouts of madness.  His twelve labors and the powerful weapons he uses.  Hercules tells a grand saga, but his heroic life is darkened by uncontrollable rages.  

Odds Bodkin performs this story in a brooding voice for Hercules, along with many other characters.  Added are uncanny vocal sound effects that help this story feel like a movie.

This free show is for teens and adults and is not recommended for listeners under eleven years of age.

Odds Bodkin has been defined as "a consummate storyteller" by the New York Times; Wired says of him "one of the great voices in American storytelling."  Don't miss this amazing opportunity!
