Alice Howland is proud of the life she worked so hard to build.

Bestseller Book Club
7:00 PM

Come join the Bestseller Book Club as we read through the Bestsellers you may have missed. We meet the 1st Tuesday of each Month at 7pm, and every month we will have a different Bestseller to read and discuss!

May's Title is Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Ugliness seethes under a placid suburban surface in this multilayered novel, in which two families grow too close for comfort. Itinerant artist Mia and her teenage daughter Pearl rent a Shaker Heights, Ohio, house from the Richardsons, who have four kids around Pearl's age. Three of the four become Pearl's constant companions; the fourth becomes Mia's. A custody suit elsewhere in the community threatens everything -- and calls into being the "little fires everywhere." Told backwards through time via multiple narrators, this insightful book will appeal to fans of complex family dramas

Books are available to pick up at the Main Desk for one month prior to this meeting.

New members are always welcome! For more Information contact: Pat Graham 978-686-4080 x16

This month we will be discussing THE ATOMIC CITY GIRLS by Janet Beard.

About the book:

In November 1944, eighteen-year-old June Walker boards an unmarked bus, destined for a city that doesn't officially exist.  Oak Ridge, Tennessee has sprung up in a matter of months - a town of trailers and segregated houses, 24-hour cafeterias, and constant security checks.  There, June joins hundreds of other young girls operating massive machines whose purpose is never explained.  They know they are helping to win the war, but must ask no questions and reveal nothing to outsiders.  When the bombing of Hiroshima brings the truth about Oak Ridge into devastating focus, June must confront her ideals about loyalty, patriotism, and war itself in this riveting novel of the everyday women who worked on the Manhattan Project during World War II.

Yarn Swap!
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

To help celebrate World Knit in Public Day, we will be hosting our first every Yarn Swap! 

We will be taking yarn starting at 9:30am.  Around 10:15, or when everything and everyone is settled and ready to start, we will distribute numbers so we know our "picking order".  We will proceed like in a Yankee Swap until everyone has gone through once.  Then, whatever is left is up for grabs!

Please bring only clean and moth-free yarn to swap only.

Author Event: Juliette Fay
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

We are excited to welcome author Juliette Fay to the Nevins Library!  She will be here to talk about her latest book, City of Flickering Light, which promises to transport the reader back to the Golden Age of Hollywood and the raucous Roaring Twenties, as three friends struggle to earn their places among the stars of the silent screen.

A bit about the book:

It’s July 1921, “flickers” are all the rage, and Irene Van Beck has just declared her own independence by jumping off a moving train to escape her fate in a traveling burlesque show. When her friends, fellow dancer Millie Martin and comedian Henry Weiss, leap after her, the trio finds their way to the bright lights of Hollywood with hopes of making it big in the burgeoning silent film industry.

At first glance, Hollywood in the 1920s is like no other place on earth—iridescent, scandalous, and utterly exhilarating—and the three friends yearn for a life they could only have dreamed of before. But despite the glamour and seduction of Tinseltown, success doesn’t come easy, and nothing can prepare Irene, Millie, and Henry for the poverty, temptation, and heartbreak that lie ahead. With their ambitions challenged by both the men above them and the prejudice surrounding them, their friendship is the only constant through desperate times, as each struggles to find their true calling in an uncertain world. What begins as a quest for fame and fortune soon becomes a collective search for love, acceptance, and fulfillment as they navigate the backlots and stage sets where the illusions of the silver screen are brought to life.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.  Refreshments will be served.

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

This month we will be discussing GREEN by Sam Graham-Felsen.

About the book:

Boston, 1992.  David Greenfeld is one of the few white kids at the Martin Luther King Middle School.  Unless he tests into the city's best public high school - which, if practice tests are any indication, isn't likely - he'll be friendless for the foreseeable future.  Nobody's more surprised than Dave when Marlon Wellings sticks up for him in the school cafeteria.  Mar's a loner from the public housing project on the corner of Dave's own gentrifying block, and he confound's Dave's assumption about black culture: He's nerdy and neurotic, a Celtics obsessive whose favorite player is the gawky, white Larry Bird.  Together, the two boys are able to resist the contradictory personas forced on them by the outside world.  But as Dave welcomes his new best friend into his world, he realizes how little he knows about Mar's.  Cracks gradually form in their relationship, and Dave starts to become aware of the breaks he's been given - and that Mar has not.

Please join us!  Books are available for the month before we meet.  New members are always welcome!  Be aware that this is our last meeting until September 2019.  Have a great summer!
