Afternoon Book Discussion
4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing The Ship of Brides by Jojo Moyes.

From Booklist: World War II has ended, and four Australian women are about to embark on the trip of  a lifetime. They are joined by 650 other women who will make the six-week trip to England aboard the HMS Victoria to be reunited with the men they married just prior to or during the war. These "war brides " are in a perilous position: leaving behind everyone and everything they know to start a new life in a new country, unsure whether they will be welcomed by their new in-laws and able to handle life married to men they barely know. The stress of  these concerns, coupled with life on a battleship full of  seamen, ensures the trip is an adventure for all—especially when secrets are revealed that could ruin reputations and the hint of  forbidden romance blossoms on board. VERDICT Moyes's (Me Before You; The Girl You Left Behind; One Plus One ) engrossing and well-written novel with romantic content is light but powerful. Through emotive language and suspense, the author effectively thrusts readers into the brides ' world of  anxiety, urgency, hope, and excitement. Highly recommended for historical romance readers.— Jennifer Harris, Southern New Hampshire Univ. Lib., Manchester --Jennifer Harris (Reviewed October 1, 2014) (Library Journal, vol 139, issue 16, p75)ship of brides

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.

Traveling Book Group
7:00 PM

The Traveling Book Group is meeting to discuss Becoming Nicole: the Transformation of an American Family by Amy Ellis Nutt. 

From Publisher’s Weekly:“This poignant account of a transgender girl's transition offers a heartfelt snapshot of a family whose only objective is to protect their daughter. Tackling the subject from a biological, social, and psychological viewpoint, Pulitzer-winning reporter Nutt (Shadows Bright as Glass) weaves complex elements of what being transgender means into a compelling narrative about a young woman who has identified as female since early childhood. Her middle-class family in rural Maine struggle to navigate the American education, legal, and medical systems in order for their daughter to "become Nicole." Tensions around a court case involving the designation of male and female bathrooms, Nicole's evolving relationship with her father, and the family's conflict between privacy and advocacy advance the story. Writing in a very journalistic tone, Nutt succeeds in placing Nicole's individual story within the more general narrative of transgender rights in the United States and humanizes the issues currently at play.

The Dighton Public Library has started a Cookbook Club. The next meeting is Wednesday, December 13 at 6:30 PM. The deadline for sign-ups is Wednesday, December 6.  We are sharing our favorite holiday recipes that are not cookies.

This group meets once a month, with a different theme each month. Participants must sign up with the library in advance to let us know what type of dish you will be preparing (so we won’t have duplicates.) We will notify you of how many servings to bring for the group meeting. The servings are meant to be a taste – not full sized. And we ask that you bring copies of your recipes to share with the group.

Afternoon Book Discussion
4:00 PM

The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing 2 a.m. at the Cat's Pajamas by Marie-Helene Bertino.

From Library Journal: /* Starred Review */ Almost ten years old, Madeleine Altimari is a self-described "poor motherless girl in old stockings." Often hungry but pragmatically compensating for her grieving father's neglect, she's a mouthy old soul who doesn't play nice with others. What Madeleine does do is live and breathe jazz. On Christmas Eve, she is determined, at all costs, to sing at a run-down Philadelphia jazz bar called the Cat's Pajamas. Her teacher Sarina Greene whose love for an old flame is unrequited (or so she thinks) is also drawn to the Cat's Pajamas. Lorca, the bar's owner, has just been informed that his bar will be shut down unless he comes up with an impossible sum of money to cover his countless citations and bring the place up to code. That these threads converge is a given. The surprise is in the purely original construction of an irresistible story that takes place in just 24 hours. VERDICT By the fourth sentence of the first page, readers will fall in love with debut author Bertino; delighted adoration of Madeleine will take another half page. This assured, moving, brilliantly funny tale of music, mourning, and off-kilter romance entrances with its extraordinarily inventive language. Be prepared for a quick reread of this novel to try to answer the question: How did Bertino do that? [See Prepub Alert, 2/3/14.]— Beth Andersen, formerly with Ann Arbor Dist. Lib., MI --Beth Andersen (Reviewed July 1, 2014) (Library Journal, vol 139, issue 12, p70)ship of brides

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.
