Friday Morning Bookies - Magpie Murders
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz. When editor Susan Ryeland is given the manuscript of Alan Conway's latest novel, she has no reason to think it will be much different from any of his others. After working with the bestselling crime writer for years, she's intimately familiar with his detective, Atticus Pünd, who solves mysteries disturbing sleepy English villages. An homage to queens of classic British crime such as Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, Alan's traditional formula has proved hugely successful. So successful that Susan must continue to put up with his troubling behavior if she wants to keep her job. Conway's latest tale has Atticus Pünd investigating a murder at Pye Hall, a local manor house. Yes, there are dead bodies and a host of intriguing suspects, but the more Susan reads, the more she's convinced that there is another story hidden in the pages of the manuscript: one of real-life jealousy, greed, ruthless ambition, and murder.

(Virtual) Hava Nagila: How a Song Defines a People
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The song "Hava Nagila" is instantly recognizable; musical shorthand for anything Jewish, a happy party tune that you dance to at weddings, bar mitzvahs and even at Major League Baseball games. It carries with it an entire constellation of history, values and hopes for the future. In its own believe-it-or-not way, "Hava Nagila" encapsulates the Jewish journey over the past 150 years. It also reveals the power of one song to express and sustain identity, to transmit lessons across generations and to bridge cultural divides and connect us all on a universal level. Includes performances by many artists. Presented by lecturer, historian, and composer, Jeff Kampf of Life Long Cognition. 

Registration with an email is required, so we can send you a link to connect through GoToMeeting. You will receive the link approximately 24 hours before the program.

Skills Developed by a Free Hunterdon County Black Man: 1754-1836
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Local historian, Larry Kidder, shares the story of Jacob Francis, who was born free in Amwell Township, served as an indentured servant to age 21, served in the Continental Army – including the Battle of Trenton – and New Jersey militia, then established himself against all odds as a successful farmer. He interacted with many enslaved people, including the woman he married and set free, and helped his son develop skills to be an important abolitionist seeking not just an end to enslavement but also racial equality. Throughout his life, Jacob developed many physical and mental skills needed to overcome the racist obstacles that society placed in his path. The life of Jacob Francis and the family he created with his wife, Mary, richly illustrates how human beings often have to reach deeply and persistently to acquire and use important skills. Co-sponsored with Hopewell Valley Historical Society.

This event is part of Hopewell Valley Heritage Week, a week of events providing opportuniies for all ages to celebrate the rich history of Hopewell Valley.

(Virtual) The Life and Work of Georgia O’Keeffe, “Mother of American Modernism”
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us as Jeanne Johnson, famed for her hour-long-in-depth studies of artists, guides us through the life and work of Georgia O’Keeffe (1887-1986), “Mother of American Modernism”. O’Keeffe is mostly known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, however, throughout her long career she painted a range of subjects—from New York skyscrapers to desert scenes, cow skulls, and adobe architecture. O’Keeffe’s work was highly skilled and so precise it oscillated between realism and abstraction. Viewing a retrospective of her work, you will learn facts and people associated with Georgia that you may not know, people who inspired her, some who hurt her, some that she hurt.

Jeanne Johnson's interest in art and music have taken her to more than 87 countries in pursuit of her passions.  Since retiring from a successful career as a classically trained musician, she has become an active volunteer currently serving on the Princeton University Art Museum Docent Assoc. Board, and as president of Newcomers and Friends @ YWCA Princeton.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Library.

Book Launch Party: Architect of Courage, by Victoria Weisfeld
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Award-winning short story writer Vicki Weisfeld’s new murder mystery, set in 2011, tells the story of successful Manhattan architect Archer Landis, whose orderly life is upended by the murder of his lover Julia. When the police link her to the Arab-American community, their reflexive conclusion is “terrorist.” Landis disagrees, absolutely, and sets out to prove them wrong. Julia’s death is the first in a series of mysterious attacks on everyone and everything Landis most cares about. To emerge from these tragedies, he must confront prejudice, self-doubt, the limits of loyalty, and a need for redemption that transcends revenge. He must have the courage to change.

Poetry Circle: English-Language Haiku
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

In the United States, haiku is commonly used to introduce school children to poetry — but haiku is so much more than a learning tool or a pop-culture poetic form. With roots in the rich literary traditions of Japan, English-language haiku (ELH) is a genre of poetry that invites readers to pause for a contemplative moment of “nowness” amidst the ceaseless activity of our hectic world. This month’s Poetry Circle traces the evolution of ELH from the Imagist movement of the early 20th century to today, where it flourishes in print and online. Bill Waters, a member of the Poetry Circle, will lead this presentation.

"Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a classroom. Her family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education, and no one to intervene when one of Tara’s older brothers became violent. When another brother got himself into college, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home."

(Virtual) Stories of Slavery in New Jersey
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

June 19th, also known as Juneteenth, is the oldest known holiday that commemorates the end of slavery. It marks the date in 1865 when the last group of enslaved people in Galveston, Texas learned that they were free under the Emancipation Proclamation. As a federal holiday, it is a time to time to reflect on the past and look to the future. Author Rick Geffken reveals stories from New Jersey’s history of slavery. Many may be surprised that New Jersey, in 1866, was the last northern state to abolish slavery. Dutch and English settlers brought the first enslaved people to New Jersey in the seventeenth century. By the time of the Revolutionary War, slavery was an established practice on labor-intensive farms throughout what became known as the Garden State.

Science Fiction Book Club - Superposition by David Walton
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Superposition by David Walton. Jacob Kelley's family is turned upside down when an old friend turns up, waving a gun and babbling about an alien quantum intelligence. The mystery deepens when the friend is found dead in an underground bunker, apparently murdered around the same time he appeared at Jacob's house. Jacob is arrested for the murder and put on trial. As the details of the crime slowly come to light, the weave of reality becomes ever more tangled, twisted by a miraculous new technology and a quantum creature unconstrained by the normal limits of space and matter. With the help of his daughter Alessandra, Jacob must find the true murderer before the creature destroys his family and everything he loves.

Morning Book Club: Book of Lost Names, by Kristen Harmel
10:00 AM

The Book of Lost Names, by Kristin Harmel. Eva Traube Abrams, a semi-retired librarian in Florida, is shelving books one morning when her eyes lock on a photograph in a magazine lying open nearby. She freezes; it's an image of a book she hasn't seen in sixty-five years--a book she recognizes as The Book of Lost Names. The accompanying article discusses the looting of libraries by the Nazis across Europe during World War II--an experience Eva remembers well--and the search to reunite people with the texts taken from them so long ago.
