YA Fiction Book Club

All ages 12-102 are welcome to our Young Adult Fiction Book Club, held on the last Tuesday of every month at 6:30. Refreshments are served, and a lively discussion of that month's book is enjoyed! No registration required.

September's Selection:

Diamond Boy by Michael Williams

(From Goodreads)

A high-stakes, harrowing adventure set in the diamond fields of Southern Africa, from the critically acclaimed author of Now Is the Time for Running.

"Diamonds for everyone."

That's what fifteen-year-old Patson Moyo hears when his family arrives in the Marange diamond fields. Soon Patson is working in the mines himself, hoping to find his girazi--the priceless stone that could change his life forever. But when the government's soldiers comes to Marange, Patson's world is shattered.

Set against the backdrop of President Robert Mugabe's brutal regime in Zimbabwe, Diamond Boy is the story of young man who succumbs to greed but finds his way out through a transformative journey to South Africa in search of his missing sister, in search of freedom, and in search of himself.

You'll Be Hooked!

Join Roberta Conti for a presentation on the art and craft of rug hooking.  She credits her mother Wilhelmina Shaw who taught rug hooking at Swinburne School for over 25 years, for introducing her to this wonderful and creative hobby.  Over the years, Roberta’s mother tried to get her interested in the hobby without success.  Then as Roberta was cleaning out her mother’s basement in 1986, she found a little stool.  That one little stool project turned into a passion for rug hooking.  Since then, Roberta has hooked 10 rugs, upholstered 8 antique stools, 5 chair seats, and 2 brick doorstops along with finishing projects that others couldn’t finish.

This demonstration is free and open to the public. Sign up online at www.portsmouthlibrary.org or call the library at 683-9457 to register.

Teen Cemetery Series

For teens in grades 6-12! We will first meet in the program room for each of the 3 sessions. We will be walking as a group to the Portsmouth Cemetery up the street, near the park on Turnpike Ave.

Session 1: Monday October 1st - Review a quick presentation and handouts on the history of the Portsmouth Cemetery and learn what some of the symbols and gravestone designs mean. We will be using some resources from Ancestry.com and the RI Historical Cemetery Database. We will walk to the cemetery for the second hour of the session, being back at the library for 6:30 for pickup. Please dress appropriately for walking on grass and if it is cool outside. Teens will pick a stone in the cemetery to photograph, do a rubbing, and work on research.

Session 2: Monday October 15th - Review where we are in our cemetery search and discuss plans for the cemetery visit, including supplies for grave rubbings and to take more pictures. We are hoping to spend the majority of this session at the cemetery.

Session 3: This session will be at the library, in the program room. We will be finishing up our projects, learning some tips on searching through the library's edition of ancestry and working on some artwork (if desired) to the rubbings. Refreshments and treats will be served.

Event registration is required, and sign ups include all 3 sessions.

YA Fiction Book Club

All ages 12-102 are welcome to our Young Adult Fiction Book Club, held on the last Tuesday of every month at 6:30. Refreshments are served, and a lively discussion of that month's book is enjoyed! No registration required.

October Selection: Mosquitoland, by David Arnold

From Goodreads:

I am a collection of oddities, a circus of neurons and electrons: my heart is the ringmaster, my soul is the trapeze artist, and the world is my audience. It sounds strange because it is, and it is, because I am strange.

After the sudden collapse of her family, Mim Malone is dragged from her home in northern Ohio to the "wastelands" of Mississippi, where she lives in a medicated milieu with her dad and new stepmom. Before the dust has a chance to settle, she learns her mother is sick back in Cleveland.

So she ditches her new life and hops aboard a northbound Greyhound bus to her real home and her real mother, meeting a quirky cast of fellow travelers along the way. But when her thousand-mile journey takes a few turns she could never see coming, Mim must confront her own demons, redefining her notions of love, loyalty, and what it means to be sane.

Told in an unforgettable, kaleidoscopic voice, Mosquitoland is a modern American odyssey, as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.
