Solar Eclipse Party
1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Come join us to see the amazing and rare total solar eclipse as it happens on August 21 2017.

Libraries across the country are encouraging patrons to join together to witness this event in nature that hasn’t happened in the Continental United States since 1979. 

This year the solar eclipse takes place across the Midwest of the United States. We’ll be able to see a partial eclipse here, weather permitting, but thanks to modern technology, we’ll also be able to show the total eclipse live, as it happens.

In addition to the live feed from NASA TV, we’ll have activities related to astronomy, storytimes about the stars and planets.  We'll have some cool glasses to watch the eclipse safely and even  a dramatic portrayal of what is really happening during the eclipse.  We’ll also be serving some fun snacks that may make you ponder the stars.

This is an All Ages event so bring your curiosity and your enthusiasm for space (and maybe your parents), and maybe we’ll go to infinity and beyond.

Author Event: Jo Piazza O'Mara
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

We are very excited to welcome local author Jo Piazza O'Mara back to the Nevins Library! 

She will be here to talk about SONGS IN THE NIGHT, a sequel to GARDEN OF HOPE.

About the book:

Songs in the Night, a sequel to Garden of Hope, continues to follow the lives of the gregarious, fun-loving Agosti family.  Joe, now the patriarch of the family, prayerfully guides his sisters and their children as they weather multiple trials; trials that would test the family’s faith and their close bond. 

When accusations of a serious crime are made, when the story behind a mysterious ring is discovered and when a horrific car accident occurs - the family is shaken to its core.

The legacy of faith from the grandparents to the third generation highlights God’s faithfulness and sovereignty. Songs in the Night is a story of testing, trials, and hope. A selection of the family's treasured Italian recipes are included in the back of this book.

 

Jo will have copies of her books available for purchase and signing.  Refreshments will be served.

Author Event: Hank Phillippi Ryan
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Hank Phillippi Ryan is coming back!  Our last scheduled event was upended by the winter weather, but we should not have that problem this time! 

Hank will be here to talk about her latest novel, now available in paperback:  SAY NO MORE.

A little about the book:

When Boston reporter Jane Ryland reports a hit and run, she soon learns she saw more than a car crash--she witnessed the collapse of an alibi, and now she's under pressure to tell all to the police. She's also digging up the inside scoop for an expose of sexual assaults on Boston's college campuses for the station's new documentary unit, and is working with a victim to reveal her heartbreaking experience on camera. But, a disturbing anonymous message--SAY NO MORE--has Jane really and truly scared. 

Homicide detective Jake Brogan is on the hunt for the murderer of Avery Morgan, a hot-shot Hollywood screenwriter. As Jake chips his way through a code of silence as shatterproof as any street gang, he'll learn that one newcomer to the neighborhood may have a secret of her own.

A young woman faces a life-changing decision--should she go public about her assault? What's really going on behind closed doors at a prestigious Boston college? And when will the killer strike again? Jane and Jake--now semi-secretly engaged and beginning to reveal their relationship to the world--are both on a high-stakes quest for answers. Can they handle the consequences of the truth?

Books will be available for purchase & signing.  Refreshements will be served.

October's Title is Best Horror: Hex by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

In Hex, acclaimed Dutch author Thomas Heuvelt portrays an idyllic Hudson Valley town similar to others in the region -- except that the other villages aren't haunted.

Black Spring is home to the ghost of Katherine van Wyler, an alleged witch who was tortured and hanged in the 1600s. Eyes and lips sewn shut, she visits the town's residents, ominously coming and going in their houses whenever she wants. But for residents to leave Black Spring would be to invite disaster, so the town's leader's have taken measures to keep it quarantined. Then a group of boys decides Katherine needs an Internet presence, and horrendous chaos breaks out.

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

Be Happy! The Science of Happiness and How to be Happier
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Do you ever find yourself wishing you could feel happier?  Many of us do and we think we will feel happier as a result of something - such as finding a new job, finishing a project, losing 10 pounds, etc.  However, psychologists and neurologists are now realizing that happiness can be more readily achieved through changing the way we think.  Lizzie Linn Casanave, professor of philosophy at Northern Essex Community College, will explain this revolutionary concept and provide you with practical tools for achieving this new mindset.

This program is brought to you through the NECC Speakers Bureau.

About the book:

In 1986, a shy and intelligent twenty-year old named Christopher Knight left his home in Massachusetts, drove to Maine, and disappeared into the forest.  He would not have a conversation with another human being until nearly three decades later, when he was arrested for stealing food.  Based on extensive interivews with Knight himself, this is a vividly detailed account of his secluded life--why did he leave? what did he learn? -- as well as the challenges he faced since returning to the world.  It is a gripping story of survival that asks fundamental questions about solitude, community, and what makes a good life, and a deeply moving portrait of a man who was determine to live his own way, and succeeded.
