Local Author Event: Joanne Carota
1:00 PM

Please join us in welcoming local author Joanne Carota as she talks about her new novel THE DOCKS.  Set in South Boston, THE DOCKS is a murder mystery that will keep you guessing.

A little about the book:

Kate Finn grew up on the South Boston docks idolizing her commercial fisherman father, Seamus Finn and his friends. Now she’s a marine biologist working for the FDA who still spends as much time as she can on the docks near this salty crew. That is, until one misty morning when she discovers her father’s best friend, Sammy, dead there. All signs point toward Seamus and he is arrested and accused of the murder.At the bail hearing Kate learns a family secret—her father killed a man in self-defense when her mother was pregnant with Kate. Acquitted then, this time he's sent to prison to await trial. Raised with the fierce loyalties of South Boston in her blood, Kate vows to clear his name. Soon Kate accepts a job that violates all of her family legacy. She goes to work for Colin Greely at Greely Seafood Labs where fish are genetically engineered. Kate will use her scientific training to investigate the murder of Sammy and save her family. Turns out she has some distractions. Another fisherman is attacked on the docks. Now who can she trust? Greely? His right-hand-man Ed McGann? Detective Rich Madley? Her mentor, Dr. Zion? Her old love interest Pierre Gosselin? Or, are they all in league against the Finns? Kate learns that circumstances are not always as they appear.

Joanne Carota will have copies of her book available for purchase and signing. 

Refreshments will be available.

LGBTQ Book Group
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us this month for the Nevins Library LGBTQ Book Group, where we read books by, about, or involving members of the LGBTQ community.

This month's book is The Absolutist by John Boyne. It is September 1919: twenty-one-year-old Tristan Sadler takes a train from London to Norwich to deliver a package of letters to the sister of Will Bancroft, the man he fought alongside during the Great War. But the letters are not the real reason for Tristan's visit. He can no longer keep a secret and has finally found the courage to unburden himself of it. As Tristan recounts the horrific details of what to him became a senseless war, he also speaks of his friendship with Will - from their first meeting on the training grounds at Aldershot to their farewell in the trenches of northern France. The intensity of their bond brought Tristan happiness and self-discovery as well as confusion and unbearable pain.

Pick up your copy up to one month in advance at the circulation desk.

Wednesday Afternoon Book Group
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Today we will be discussing WASHINGTON BLACK by Esi Edugyan

About the book:

Washington Black is an eleven-year-old field slave who knows no other life than the Barbados sugar plantation where he was born. When his master's eccentric brother chooses him to be his manservant, Wash is terrified of the cruelties he is certain await him. But Christopher Wilde, or "Titch," is a naturalist, explorer, scientist, inventor, and abolitionist. He initiates Wash into a world where a flying machine can carry a man across the sky; where two people, separated by an impossible divide, might begin to see each other as human; and where a boy born in chains can embrace a life of dignity and meaning. But when a man is killed and a bounty is placed on Wash's head, Titch abandons everything to save him. What follows is their flight along the eastern coast of America, and, finally, to a remote outpost in the Arctic, where Wash, left on his own, must invent another new life.

 

Books will be available to pick up at the Main Desk for one month prior to our meeting.  New members are always welcome!

Memphis, 1939. Twelve-year old Rill Foss and her 4 younger siblings live a magical life aboard their family’s Mississippi River shanty boat. But when their father must rush their mother to the hospital one stormy night, Rill is left in charge-until strangers arrive in force. Wrenched from all that is familiar and thrown into a Tennessee Children’s Home Society orphanage., the Foss children are assured that they will soon be returned to their parents-but they quickly realize the dark truth. At mercy of the facility’s cruel director, Rill fights to keep her sisters and brother together in a world of danger and uncertainty.

Aiken, South Carolina, present day. Born into wealth and privilege, Avery Stafford seems to have it all. But when Avery returns home to help her father weather a health crisis, a chance encounter leaves her with uncomfortable questions and compels her to take a journey through her family’s long hidden history, on a path that will ultimately lead either to devastation or to redemption.

Long Black Veil is the story of Judith Carrigan, whose past is dredged up when the body of her college friend Wailer is discovered 20 years after her disappearance in Philadelphia’s notorious and abandoned Eastern State Penitentiary. Judith is the only witness who can testify to the innocence of her friend Casey, who had married Wailer only days before her death. The only problem is that on that fateful night at the prison, Judith was a very different person from the woman she is today. In order to defend her old friend and uncover the truth of Wailer’s death, Judith must confront long-held and hard-won secrets that could cause her to lose the idyllic life she’s built for herself and her family.

1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Today we will be discussing THE ITALIAN TEACHER by Tom Rachman

About the book:

Rome, 1955. The artists gather for a picture at a party in an ancient villa. Bear Bavinsky, creator of vast canvases, larger than life, is at the centre of the picture. His wife, Natalie, edges out of the shot. From the side of the room watches little Pinch - their son. At five years old he loves Bear almost as much as he fears him. After Bear abandons their family, Pinch will still worship him, striving to live up to the Bavinsky name; while Natalie, a ceramicist, cannot hope to be more than a forgotten muse. By the end of a career of twists and compromises, Pinch will enact an unexpected rebellion that will leave forever his mark upon the Bear Bavinsky legacy.

 

Books will be available to pick up at the Main Desk for one month prior to our meeting.  New members are always welcome!

April's Title is The Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff

One morning while passing through Grand Central Terminal on her way to work, Grace Healey finds an abandoned suitcase tucked beneath a bench. Grace opens it where she discovers a dozen photographs-each of a different woman. In a moment of impulse, Grace takes the photographs and quickly leaves the station.

Grace soon learns that the suitcase belonged to a woman named Eleanor Trigg, leader of a network of female secret agents who were deployed out of London during the war. Setting out to learn the truth behind the women in the photos, Grace finds herself drawn to a young mother turned agent named Marie, whose daring mission overseas reveals a remarkable story of friendship, valor and betrayal.

Join us this month for the Nevins Library LGBTQ Book Group, where we read books by, about, or involving members of the LGBTQ community.

This month's book is Course Correction: A Story of Rowing and Resilience in the Wake of Title IX by Ginny Gilder. Course Correction recounts the physical and psychological barriers Gilder overcame as she transformed into an elite athlete who reached the highest echelon of her sport. Set against the backdrop of unprecedented cultural change, Gilder’s story personalizes the impact of Title IX, illustrating the life-changing lessons learned in sports but felt far beyond the athletic arena. Heartfelt and candid, Gilder recounts lessons learned from her journey as it wends its way from her first glimpse of an oar to the Olympic podium in 1984, carries her through family tragedy, strengthens her to accept her true sexual identity, and ultimately frees her to live her life on her terms.

May's Title is Before She Knew Him by Peter Swanson

Hen and her husband Lloyd have settled into a quiet life in a new house outside of Boston. Hen is an illustrator and works out of a studio nearby, and has found the right meds to control her bipolar disorder. Finally, she’s found some stability and peace. 

But when they meet the neighbors next door, that calm begins to erode as she spots a familiar object displayed on the husband’s office shelf. The trophy looks exactly like the one that went missing from the home of a young man killed 2 years ago. She knows, due to her fascination with this unsolved murder. 

Could the neighbor be the killer, or is it the beginning of another psychotic episode like she’s suffered in the past.

This month's book is Less by Andrew Sean Greer. Arthur Less will almost fall in love in Paris, almost fall to his death in Berlin, barely escape to a Moroccan ski chalet from a Saharan sandstorm, accidentally book himself as the (only) writer-in-residence at a Christian Retreat Center in Southern India, and encounter, on a desert island in the Arabian Sea, the last person on Earth he wants to face. Somewhere in there: he will turn fifty. Through it all, there is his first love. And there is his last. A scintillating satire of the American abroad, a rumination on time and the human heart, a bittersweet romance of chances lost, by an author The New York Times has hailed as "inspired, lyrical," "elegiac," "ingenious," as well as "too sappy by half," Less shows a writer at the peak of his talents raising the curtain on our shared human comedy.

About the book:

Just after World War II, 14-year-old Nathaniel and his older sister Rachel stay behind in London when their parents move to Singapore, leaving them in the care of a mysterious figure named The Moth. They suspect he might be a criminal, and they grow both more convinced and less concerned as they come to know his eccentric crew of friends: men and women joined by a shared history of unspecified service during the war, all of whom seem, in some way, determined now to protect, and educate (in rather unusual ways) Rachel and Nathaniel. But are they really what and who they claim to be? And what does it mean when the siblings' mother returns after months of silence without their father, explaining nothing, excusing nothing? A dozen years later, Nathaniel begins to uncover all that he didn't know and understand in that time.

June's Title is Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty

Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be.
 
Frances Welty, a romantic novelist, arrives at Tranquillum House nursing a bad back, a broken heart. She’s immediately intrigued by fellow guests. Most of them don’t look to be in need of a health resort at all. But the person that intrigues her most is the strange and charismatic owner. Could this person really have the answers Frances didn’t even know she was seeking? Should Frances put aside her doubts and immerse herself in everything Tranquillum House has to offer-or should she run while she still can?

It’s not long before every guest is asking the exact same question.

Join us this month for the Nevins Library LGBTQ Book Group, where we read books by, about, or involving members of the LGBTQ community.

This month's book is Calypso by David Sedaris. With Calypso, Sedaris sets his formidable powers of observation toward middle age and mortality. Make no mistake: these stories are very, very funny--it's a book that can make you laugh 'til you snort, the way only family can. Sedaris's powers of observation have never been sharper, and his ability to shock readers into laughter unparalleled. But much of the comedy here is born out of that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realize that the story of your life is made up of more past than future.

Pick up your copy up to one month in advance at the circulation desk.

Wednesday Afternoon Book Group
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Today we will be discussing AN AMERICAN MARRIAGE by Tayari Jones

About the book:

Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn't commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy's time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy's conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.

Books will be available to pick up at the Main Desk for one month prior to our meeting.  New members are always welcome!
