March Book Madness... Where the Books Always Win! Youth Services is participating in a fun reading challenge during the month of March, and readers of all ages — adults, too — are encouraged to participate! The EPL will join public schools and libraries from across the country to celebrate the theme of “The Character’s Journey” in our first March Book Madness Tournament of Books. “The Character’s Journey” was chosen by Tony Keefer and Scott Jones, teachers from Central Ohio who five years ago decided to bring the basketball version of March Madness to the classroom with a bracket- style tournament of books. Want to join the “madness?”

Turn your ballot into Youth Services by the deadline. After each round of voting, the bracket will be updated, and the next round of voting and balloting will begin. The winner of March Book Madness will be announced at the tournament celebration on Saturday, March 30th at 2:00 pm. All participants will be recognized and will be invited to enjoy the ice cream sundae buffet! Tournament books will be available for onsite browsing at the Youth Services desk, or may be requested through CLAMS network. The “Sweet Sixteen” are ready for competition...are you?

Isabella Stewart Gardner comes to Chatham

Character reenactor Jessa Piaia will present a dramatic portrayal of Isabella Stewart Gardner (1840-1924) in “A Visit with Isabella Stewart Gardner: America’s First Patroness of the Arts.” The drama is set in 1910, seven years after the opening of Fenway Court, the house-museum which Mrs. Gardner designed and built for her extensive art collection, and willed to the City of Boston upon her demise. A recognized leader of Boston’s emerging salon scene, Mrs. Gardner, with characteristic verve and candor, relates episodes about her luminous circle of family and friends, relives journeys to exotic lands, and shares other potentially scandalous encounters. The portrayal runs approximately 50 minutes in length, with an informal Q&A to follow.

Piaia uses drama to reveal the accomplishments, struggles, and contributions of women to American history. Clad in period attire, she is acclaimed for “recreating history in the fullest sense,” and for using “solid research and compelling writing” in her artistry. She performs at educational institutions, museums, libraries, and social and cultural organizations throughout New England since 1985. Ms. Piaia studied performance at London’s Oval House Theatre and graduated from the University of Massachusetts in Boston. She works at the Harvard School for Engineering and Applied Sciences.

The Diseased Ship by Meadow Hilley

Were Cape Cod sea captains involved in the slave trade? Meadow Hilley of Brewster has uncovered an intriguing story that she believes points to a Brewster sea captain dealing in slaves. In her talk entitled “The Diseased Ship, the Sea Serpent and the Destroying Angel: Cape Cod Sea Captains and the Slave Trade” she will explore the tale. When Elijah Cobb sailed the Ten Brothers into Boston harbor in July 1819, he completed the last leg of a triangular journey that had taken him and his crew from New England to West Africa to the West Indies and home again over the course of ten trying months. Drawing on local archival sources and a growing body of scholarly research on the region’s participation in the Atlantic slave economy, Meadow Hilley will consider the Ten Brothers incident within the broader context of Cape Cod’s commerce with Africa and the West Indies over the centuries.

In this collection of warm and witty vignettes, Rothman muses on the best treasures he's found while metal detecting; namely the people, the conversations, and the instant kinship his trusty detector has helped him attract.
