Author Anne D. LeClaire

We are thrilled to host best-selling author Anne LeClaire who will talk about her new book, The Orchid Sister – a heart-racing novel of love, suspense, and the unbreakable bond between sisters. The people you love are taken from you. That's what Maddie DiMarco learned when she survived the plane crash that killed her parents. Fifteen years later, the scars remain. When Maddie meets handsome pilot Jack Moroni, she finally begins to let down her guard. But just as quickly, her hope and trust are once again shattered when a plane crash forces her to revisit her traumatic past. Maddie turns to her sister for comfort and guidance, only to realize that Kat is missing. To find her, Maddie must confront her deepest fears--and if she's lucky, she may also find herself along the way.

A former actor, print journalist and radio broadcaster, Anne LeClaire is a memoirist and the critically acclaimed, best-selling author of nine novels published in twenty-four countries. She is a frequent speaker at a variety of events and teaches creative writing workshops in the United States and in a variety on international venues.

William McKeever: Emperors of the Deep

Meet Author and Filmmaker William McKeever for a 20-minute edited version of his documentary film, talk on sharks, and a Q&A, followed by a booksigning. In Emperors of the Deep: Sharks—The Ocean’s Most Mysterious, Most Misunderstood, and Most Important Guardians (publishing July 2019), author and NGO Conservationist William McKeever is on a mission to change everyone’s views of the mysterious creatures of the deep. The book takes readers on a pulse-pounding journey around the world and deep under the water’s surface—from the frigid waters of the Arctic Circle to the coral reefs of the tropical Central Pacific—to dispel the narrative about sharks (from Jaws to "Shark Week,)” which claims they’re terrifying, cold-blooded, underwater predators. McKeever says, "Sharks are unequivocally essential to maintaining a balanced ecosystem. When these giant beasts of the seas are removed from the ocean, the effect on reefs and seagrasses is catastrophic for generations to come."

Author William McKeever is a writer, a documentary filmmaker and the founder of the non-profit Safeguard the Seas, dedicated to ocean conservation. McKeever is the author of Emperors of the Deep, the producer and director of the forthcoming feature-length global documentary Emperors of the Deep—which has not been previously released—to further raise awareness. The Eldredge Public Library is pleased to host this program in collaboration with Where the Sidewalk Ends Bookstore.  Seating is limited.

Eric Jay Dolin - Black Flags, Blue Waters

Set against the backdrop of the Age of Exploration, Black Flags, Blue Waters reveals the dramatic and surprising history of American piracy’s “Golden Age”—spanning the late 1600s through the early 1700s—when lawless pirates plied the coastal waters of North America and the Indian Ocean. In this talk and slide presentation, bestselling author Eric Jay Dolin illustrates how American colonists at first supported these outrageous pirates in an early display of colonial solidarity against the Crown, and then violently opposed them. Dolin depicts the star pirates of this period, among them towering Blackbeard, ill-fated Captain Kidd, and sadistic Edward Low, who delighted in torturing his prey. Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Black Flags, Blue Waters provides a wholly original account of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life.

Eric Jay Dolin is the author of 13 books, including Leviathan: The History of Whaling in America, which was chosen as one of the best nonfiction books of 2007 by the Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, and Providence Journal, and also won the 2007 John Lyman Award for U.S. Maritime History. His most recent book before Black Flags is Brilliant Beacons: A History of the American Lighthouse, which was chosen by gCaptain and Classic Boat as one of the best nautical books of 2016. A graduate of Brown, Yale, and MIT, where he received his PhD in environmental policy, Dolin lives in Marblehead, Massachusetts, with his family.

The Great Boston Molasses Flood:100 Years Later

Stephen Puleo, author of Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919, will visit the Eldredge Public Library to discuss his book and the remarkable flood story itself in this 100th anniversary year. Steve will talk about the molasses flood tragedy itself -- in which 21 people were killed, 150 people injured, and enormous property damage occurred in Boston's North End -- and also talk about the big historical issues that affected both America and the flood in the early part of the twentieth century. His presentation will be followed by a Q-and-A session and a book signing.

Steve is the author of six nonfiction books, and has a seventh on the way scheduled for publication by St. Martin's Press in the spring of 2020. All of his books have been Boston regional bestsellers and have received national recognition. A former award-winning newspaper reporter and contributor of articles and book reviews to publications and organizations that include American History magazine, Politico, the Boston Globe and the Bill of Rights Institute. Steve has taught history at Suffolk University and currently teaches at UMass Boston
