Books and Babies

Books and Babies for Parents/Caregivers and their Newborn to Pre-crawling Infants - It’s never too early to share the love of reading with a child, and building early literacy skills — those skills that must be in place before reading actually begins — does, indeed, begin on the lap of a caregiver! This presentation will include an age appropriate read-aloud, songs, bounces, chants and fingerplays, along with early literacy tips, topics and resources. The “storytime” portion will last approximately 20 minutes, with parents and caregivers invited to remain after for informal social time. Healthy refreshments will be served. Registration is required for each session. (Please Note: the August session repeats the July session.) Reminder: strollers are not permitted inside the library.

Books and Babies is brought to you through our LSTA grant, Chatham Reads, with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

Meet Sally Ride

Sheryl Faye Presents: Sally Ride – America’s First Woman Astronaut for all ages - Sally Ride is glued to the classroom television as astronaut John Glenn blasts off into space. “I want to do that,” she quietly says to herself, only to be reminded that girls can’t be astronauts. They can’t be shortstop for the LA Dodgers either, another early aspiration, and she soon sets her sights on tennis, learning teamwork and good sportsmanship. Her insatiable curiosity leads to a passion for science. As she matures, she studies the wonders of the universe and finally, when girls can, she becomes America’s first woman astronaut and a passionate advocate for STEM. Actress Sheryl Faye brings Sally Ride to life. Ms. Faye has been portraying historical women for over a decade in a variety of venues. She is a graduate of Emerson College. No registration is required.

The “storytime” portion will last approximately 20 minutes, with parents and caregivers invited to remain after for informal social time. Healthy refreshments will be served. Registration is required for each session. (Please Note: the August session repeats the July session.) Reminder: strollers are not permitted inside the library.

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
