Author Event: Nancy Thayer
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Please join us as we welcome Nancy Thayer back to the Nevins Library!  She will be talking about her latest book:  A Nantucket Wedding.

About the book:

A few years after losing her beloved husband, Alison is doing something she never thought she would do again: getting married. While placing the finishing touches on her summer nuptials, Alison is anxious to introduce her fiancé, David, to her grown daughters: Felicity, a worried married mother of two, and Jane, also married but focused on her career. The sisters have a somewhat distant relationship and Alison hopes that the wedding and the weeks leading up to the ceremony will give the siblings a chance to reconnect, as well as meet and get to know David’s grown children.

As the summer progresses, it is anything but smooth sailing. Felicity stumbles upon a terrible secret that could shatter her carefully cultivated world. Jane finds herself under the spell of her soon-to-be stepbrother, Ethan, who is as charming as he is mysterious. And even Alison is surprised (and slightly alarmed) by her new blended family. Revelations, intrigue, resentments—as the Big Day approaches, will the promise of bliss be a bust?

Books will be available for purchase.  Refreshments will be provided.

Local Author Event: Dr. Robert E. Kellan
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Dr. Robert E. Kellan has been practicing opthamology in Methuen for just over 30 years.  He has now taken his personal experiences from developing an implant for cataract patients to setting up an eye center in Lithuania and put them into his first book IMPLANT.

A bit about this espionage thriller:

Internationally acclaimed eye surgeon Alex Kirby designed his cataract intraocular lens to help people recover their sight.  He never thought it could be adapted for surveillance or that he'd find himself deeply involved in the tangled world of international espionage.  In the field for the first time, Kirby quickly learns no mission goes according to plan, especially in a world of beautiful CIA agents and Russia's brutal Federal Security Force.  For the State Department's audacious plan to succeed, sacrifices will be required - possibly including Kirby's own life.

Come hear Dr. Kellan talk about this book, and the events that inspired him to write.  He is generously donating 20 books that will be signed to the first 20 people to arrive at this event!  Refreshements will be served.

In A Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson

Here is Bill Bryson’s report on what he found in Australia, the country that doubles as a continent, and a place with the friendliest inhabitants, the hottest, driest weather, and the most peculiar and lethal wildlife to be found on the planet. The result is a deliciously funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance by a writer who combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity.

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Nevins Library invites the community to help us make crocheted, knitted, and felt poppies for a large scale art project to remember those lost in World War I.  The final project will be on display in November, coninciding with the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War I. 

We are having drop in times all summer and through the fall where we provide the supplies and you provide the talent. 

If you prefer to help with the project at home or with your own crafty group, we will have patterns available!  Please drop off completed poppies to Sarah at the Main Desk at any time through November 1.

**Note:  If you would like to support the project, but do not have time to make poppies or do not enjoy crafts like this - we will be accepting donations of red and black yarn.  Also, you may donate $1 at the Main Desk and let us know the name of a Vet you'd like to honor.  We will include your Vet's name on a ribbon with the poppies in the final display.  Thank you!
