Create Your Family Legacy: Organizing Your Materials
6:30 PM

The Dighton Public Library is hosting a series of events that will allow participants to create their own family archive. Attendees will also learn how to leave a digital legacy for future generations. You may attend any or all of the workshops.

This workshop how to handle all of our stuff. Genealogists and family historians quickly get overwhelmed with the amount of family memorabilia they amass. Learning about the best storage enclosures, environmental controls and digital file formats is a great start, but if all that material isn’t stored properly, access can still be unmanageable or impossible. Using the tried and tested principles archivists use to organize and retrieve massive amounts of information patrons will learn how to create a true archive for their family collections.

Afternoon Book Discussion
4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney.

From Library Journal:  "/* Starred Review */ It's New Year's Eve 1984 and indomitable octogenarian Lillian Boxfish has places to go. Manhattan is her playground, and she's not going to let a subway vigilante or the winter chill keep her indoors. Outfitted in her beloved mink coat, which she bought for herself in 1942, Lillian briskly sets off from her Murray Hill apartment, reminiscing about her illustrious career as the highest-paid woman in advertising, her first love, Max, and her darling son, Gian. She joins a family of strangers at Delmonico's for dinner, charms a Filipino convenience store clerk, smartly tells off a boor at a trendy loft party, and unflappably transforms a mugging into a business transaction. Lillian's needle-sharp observations are astute and her unceasing love for New York City shines through. Her life has not always been breezy, but she keeps putting one fashionable foot in front of the other. VERDICT Rooney (O, Democracy!) takes us on a delightful stroll with a colorful character, inspired by the life of poet and ad woman Margaret Fishback, sprinkling just the right details and arch bons mots appropriate to Lillian's reputation as a woman of words. [See Prepub Alert, 8/1/16; Editors' Fall Picks 2016, LJ 9/1/16.] --Christine Perkins (Reviewed 12/01/2016) (Library Journal, vol 141, issue 20, p89)lillian boxfish takes a walk

All are invited to join the discussion. This book group usually meets on the last Thursday of each month at 4:00. Copies of the book are available, in advance, at the library.

Create Your Family Legacy: Storytelling
6:30 PM

The Dighton Public Library is hosting a series of events that will allow participants to create their own family archive. Attendees will also learn how to leave a digital legacy for future generations. This is the final workshop in the series.

This workshop encourages us to share our family stories. Everyone has a story. Some people want to tell their own story, others want to capture the story of someone in their family. This class outlines many ways people can tell story. We’ll discuss setting up a family Facebook page, blogging as a way of storytelling, how to create a memory book or do an oral history. For those inspired to write, we’ll discuss the differences between writing an autobiography, memoir or a book of essays and present creative ways of using journaling as a storytelling device.

Traveling Book Group
7:00 PM

The Traveling Book Group is meeting to discuss Strangers in Budapest by Jessica Keener. Copies of this book are available at the library. All are welcome to join the discussion.

From Library Journal: "The second novel from Keener (Night Swim) follows a young American couple as they learn to survive in 1990s Budapest, a city wildly different from their hometown of Stow, Mass. Annie and Will Gordon move to Budapest with their young son Leo so that Will can pursue a business opportunity building communications networks in rural Hungary. Shortly after they arrive, the Gordons’ neighbors back in  Massachusetts ask them for a favor: to check on Edward Weiss, an elderly American friend of theirs who is living in Budapest.

Annie visits Edward, and she eventually discovers that he has been devastated by the loss of his daughter Deborah and believes that her husband was responsible for her death. Annie agrees to help Edward find his former son-in -law, but the dangers of the city soon threaten her family’s safety. Keener immerses the reader in Budapest ’s postcommunist period in  all its tumultuous glory. As the Gordons get in  over their heads in  their new city, the author combines strong characters and a riveting plot to craft a memorable novel. (Nov.) --Staff (Reviewed 09/25/2017) (Publishers Weekly, vol 264, issue 39, p)

Transgender Rights: A Family's Journey
6:30 PM

Beryl and Vernon Domingo visit the Dighton Public Library to share their personal story as parents of a transgender son and their family's journey from acceptance to advocacy for transgender rights. 

This presentation will explore gender identity, transgender rights and the discrimination that transgender people face in their everyday lives. It will also include steps that transgender allies can take to advance social and legal rights for transgender people.

In 2016, the Massachusetts legislature passed a law to fully protect transgender people from discrimination. This law is now under attack. On the November 2018 statewide ballot there will be a referendum question to repeal the non-discriminaton law that protects transgender people in Massachusetts.

Afternoon Book Discussion
4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict.

From Library Journal:  "To what extent did Albert Einstein's first wife, Mileva Maric´, contribute to his groundbreaking theories? That question lies at the heart of this first novel, narrated by Mileva. When she arrives from Zagreb to study physics in Zurich in 1896, she faces local prejudice against Serbs and pity for her limp resulting from a congenital defect. She also must prove herself academically in a class of five men, including Albert; his interest in her quickly shifts from intellectual to romantic, with promises of marriage he doesn't fulfill until after their daughter, Lieserl, is born. Having lost her academic chances, Mileva hopes to continue collaborating with Albert on his theories, but he never acknowledges Mileva's work and increasingly treats her like a servant. Benedict draws on many sources, especially letters from Albert, Mileva, and her friend Helene Kaufler, but Albert in this portrait emerges as self-centered, unlikable, and ambitious. And as Mileva submits to Albert's repeated bullying, it is hard to imagine her drive and determination in pre-Zurich days. Although both Lieserl's fate (early death or possible adoption) and Mileva's scientific contributions are subjects of debate, they continue to stimulate discussion. VERDICT With a reading group guide included and major publicity campaign planned, expect steady demand in public libraries. [See Prepub Alert, 5/2/16.] --Kathy Piehl (Reviewed 08/01/2016) (Library Journal, vol 141, issue 13, p77)"the other einstein

Afternoon Book Discussion
4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing The Supremes Sing the Happy Heartbreak Blues by Edward Kelsey Moore.

From Library Journal:  /* Starred Review */ Readers will be pleased to catch up with the  three lifelong friends, dubbed in high school "the Supremes ," from the  author's best-selling debut, The Supremes  at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat. A cast of quirky residents of Plainview, IN, from Baptist assistant pastors to traveling bluesmen, orbits now middle-aged Odette, Clarice, and Barbara Jean in this story of family, friendship, and forgiveness. The  novel opens with an unusual wedding scene involving a pair of octogenerians who once were sworn enemies. Sensitive, strong, sharp-tongued Odette narrates several chapters, providing insight on each new crisis (big or small) gleaned from living in a small town or from her dead mama, who pops up unexpectedly to chat. VERDICT Moore's bluesy, breezy novel takes readers through life's highs and lows and in-between times when no one knows what is coming next; its air of folksy optimism should appeal to fans of Alexander McCall Smith and Fredrik Backman. [See Prepub Alert, 12/19/16.]—Laurie Cavanaugh, Thayer P.L., Braintree, MA --Laurie Cavanaugh (Reviewed 06/01/2017) (Library Journal, vol 142, issue 10, p94)the supremes sing the happy heartbreak blues
