Summer concert series with Colette O'Connor
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Summer concert seriesJoin us for a break from the summer heat with this indoor concert series at the library! We're so excited to welcome Colette O'Connor to the Dailey Room Stage to help us decompress from our busy day and help us sleep well at night! She'll be doing 4 consecutive performances and we can add on more if we love it! 

New England-based Singer-songwriter Colette O'Connor's all original acoustic music comes from a desire to refocus kindness. Good for all ages. This simple, yet sophisticated, acoustic experience refreshes and affirms inner-child eye-twinkles that, sometimes, need re-charging. O'Connor's music weaves jazzy-blues to rocking folk.

"Refreshing...beautifully unique." -Deb Andersen, KZUM FM, NE. 
"Her performances are fun, funny, thought-provoking. Hypnotic voice, rich lyrics, smoking guitar, it's all there, and then some! "- Nick Noble, NPR station WICN FM, Worcester.

An evening with author Kristan Higgins
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Kristan HigginsWe are so pleased to bring Kristan Higgins to the Medfield Public Library in her pre-publication tour of her newest book Good Luck with That - we get the book a day before it is released! If you are one of those people who will stay up all night reading, this event is for you! 

Good Luck with That is a book which will make you laugh, cry and think. It will challenge you to consider how you see yourself and how you think others view you (and why). This is an opportunity to engage with Kristan about these important and, for some, life changing concepts. 

Good Luck with That“Masterfully told, Good Luck With That is a story with which every woman will identify. We all deal with body image, self-esteem, and acceptance of love at one time or another. Bravo, Kristan Higgins, bravo!”
#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber

“The mega-talented Kristan Higgins tackles head-on the challenging topics of weight and body image with sensitivity, grace, insight, and humor. This is an important and brave book in a time when any writer who wishes to explore these issues risks being called out for fat shaming, a subtle form of censorship that I find especially troublesome when being able to love our bodies—whether we’re thin or curvy—is hard for so many of us....I can’t imagine a single reader who won’t recognize herself somewhere in these pages.”
#1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Kristan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of nearly twenty novels, Her books have received many awards and accolades, and she is a six-time nominee for The Kirkus Prize for best work of fiction. Learn more about Kristan and her book on her website HERE
