AUTHOR VISIT: 'Inferno - A Doctor's Ebola Story' with Steven Hatch
Author Steven Hatch, MD will discuss his new book, "Inferno: A Doctor's Ebola Story." 

About The Book: Dr. Steven Hatch, an infectious disease specialist, first came to Liberia in November 2013 to work at a hospital in Monrovia. Six months later, several of the physicians he had served with were dead or unable to work, and Ebola had become a world health emergency. Inferno is his account of the epidemic that nearly consumed a nation, as well as its deeper origins. Powerful and clear-eyed, Inferno not only explores a deadly virus and an afflicted country, but also reveals how the Ebola outbreak stoked nativist anxieties that were exploited for political gain in the United States and around the world. In telling one doctor's story, Inferno demonstrates how generations of inequality left Liberia vulnerable to crisis, and how similar circumstances might fuel another plague elsewhere. By understanding and alleviating those circumstances, Hatch writes, we may help smother the fire next time.

About The Author: Dr. Steven Hatch is an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, specializing in infectious disease and immunology. In 2013-2014, Dr. Hatch lived and worked in Liberia as one of the few Western doctors fighting the Ebola epidemic. His work in Liberia was featured in The New York Times, 60 Minutes, CNN with Anderson Cooper, and elsewhere. 

Doors to open by 6:45pm.  Q&A and book signing to follow the event for those interested. Limited to 50 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. This program is a part of the library's '100 Authors In 2018' initiative to host 100 local authors in 1 year.

AUTHOR VISIT: 'Why You Eat What You Eat' with Rachel Herz
Author Rachel Herz will discuss her new book, "Why You Eat What You Eat: The Science Behind Our Relationship With Food." 

About The Book: In Why You Eat What You Eat, acclaimed neuroscientist Rachel Herz examines the sensory, psychological, neuroscientific, and physiological factors that influence our eating habits. Herz, who’s been praised for her “ability to cite and explain academic studies in a conversational manner” (Washington Post), uncovers the fascinating and surprising facts that influence food consumption, such as why bringing reusable bags to the grocery store encourages us to buy more treats, how our beliefs can affect how many calories we burn, why TV influences how much we eat, and how what we see and hear changes how food tastes; and reveals useful techniques for improving our experience of food, such as how aromas can help curb cravings and tips on how to resist repeated trips to the buffet table. Herz weaves curious findings and compelling facts into a narrative that tackles important questions, revealing how psychology, neurology, and physiology shape our relationship with food, and how food alters the relationship we have with ourselves and each other.

About The Author: A world-renowned expert on the psychology of smell, Dr. Rachel Herz is a published author of both books and numerous research publications. She is also a valued consultant to the world’s largest aromachemical companies, an entrepreneur, and teaches at Brown University and Boston College. Learn more about Rachel HERE.

Doors to open by 6:45pm.  Q&A and book signing to follow the event for those interested. Limited to 50 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. This program is a part of the library's '100 Authors In 2018' initiative to host 100 local authors in 1 year.

WINTER LIVING HISTORY SERIES: An Evening with John Adams

Actor George Baker will perform his one-man show, "John Adams: A Lively and Revolutionary Conversation with America's Second President." 

About John: John Adams was born in Braintree, Massachusetts in 1735 and practiced law in Boston where he represented twelve British soldiers charged with murder in the Boston Massacre of March 1770, a case which is the first recorded instance in Colonial America that the judge instructed the jury that they cannot convict unless they are convinced of the defendants’ guilt “beyond a reasonable doubt.”  In 1774, he was chosen to be one of the five delegates from Massachusetts to the Continental Congress meeting in Philadelphia.  In 1776, he was the Congress’ most strenuous advocate for American independence from Great Britain.  Later he served as ambassador from the Continental Congress to Paris, Holland and London and was Vice President in the administration of President George Washington.  In 1796, he was elected the second President of the United States.

About George: Since 2008, George Baker has portrayed the character of President John Adams in a one-man show throughout the country at national conventions and venues like Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library in Kansas, the George H. W. Bush Presidential Library in Texas, the Harry S. Truman Presidential Library in Missouri, the New York Historical Society and was featured as John Adams on National Public Radio’s weekend program, Studio 360.  A graduate of Columbia College ’69 and Columbia Law School ’73, George practices law in Connecticut when not on the road as John Adams.

Doors to open by 6:45pm.  Q&A to follow the performance. Limited to 75 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the Tewksbury Cultural Council. This program is a part of the library's winter living history series.

AUTHOR VISIT: 'Westward I Go Free: Tracing Thoreau's Last Journey' with Corrine Smith
Author Corrine H. Smith will discuss her book, "Westward I Go Free: Tracing Thoreau's Last Journey." 

About The Book: American author and naturalist Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) is best known for spending one night in jail for nonpayment of the state poll tax, and for living for two years along the shores of Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. More than a century and a half later, his essays and books are still being read, and his words are still printed on inspirational posters and greeting cards. What were his basic philosophies, and how do they resound with us today? We'll learn a bit more about this "Transcendentalist," his travels through the Merrimack Valley (including Tewksbury), and the threads that connect him to us today.

About The Author: Corinne H. Smith is a long-time librarian and writer. She is the author of Westward I Go Free: Tracing Thoreau's Last Journey and a middle-school biography and activity book, Henry David Thoreau for Kids: His Life & Ideas, With 21 Activities. She has been a Thoreau fan since she read "Civil Disobedience" and "Walden" in high school in Pennsylvania in the 1970s. She serves as a part-time docent for Thoreau Farm, the birthplace of Henry Thoreau in Concord. 

Doors to open by 6:45pm.  Q&A and book signing to follow the event for those interested. Limited to 50 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. This program is a part of the library's '100 Authors In 2018' initiative to host 100 local authors in 1 year.

Evening Book Group Meeting: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

The library's Evening Book Group is reading A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman this month. Books and discussion guides are available at the Front Desk. New readers and new points of view are always welcome! No registration required.

About the Book: Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon; the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him 'the bitter neighbour from hell'. But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn't walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time? Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove's mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their very foundations.

AUTHOR VISIT: 'Finding My Place' with Judah Leblang
Author Judah Leblang will present a humorous one-man show based on his book, "Finding My Place: One Man's Journey From Cleveland to Boston and Beyond..." 

About The Book: From wearing a 'WWJD' cap around Jacksonville, Florida (assuming it was the moniker of a local radio station) to an unfortunate car accident on the first day of kindergarten, to trying to fill out a muscle T-shirt at age 51 in the gay mecca of Provincetown, Massachusetts, Judah Leblang's journey of discovery blends comedy and drama. In this episodic memoir, the author sketches the world he comes from--a world of poppyseed kuchen, Indians baseball, and the great industrial city of Cleveland, Ohio, which seemed to be imploding in the 1960's and '70's-and the world he inhabits today, as a hard of hearing man with a funny name, navigating middle age.

About The Author: Judah Leblang is a writer, teacher, and storyteller from Cleveland, Ohio, who currently lives in Boston, Massachusetts. Written from the perspective of this keen observer, these stories capture moments in time, events from his childhood, and events in the neighborhood. Poignant, humorous, and reflective, each story touches a nerve and reflects some aspect of the human condition. 

Doors to open by 6:45pm.  Q&A and book signing to follow the event for those interested. Limited to 50 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. This program is a part of the library's '100 Authors In 2018' initiative to host 100 local authors in 1 year.

AUTHOR VISIT: 'Katharine Lee Bates: From Sea To Shining Sea' with Melinda Ponder
Author Melinda Ponder will discuss her new book, "Katharine Lee Bates: From Sea To Shining Sea," the story of the poet behind 'America The Beautiful.'

About The Book: Katharine Lee Bates’s “America the Beautiful” resonates for many people as the most patriotic and beloved American anthem. Her words remind us of why we love our country—the beauty of our land, the historic sacrifices of our people, and our ideals of hope and brotherhood. That has never been more important than today. Drawing on extensive research in Bates family diaries, letters, and memoirs, biographer Melinda M. Ponder brings Katharine to vivid life. Although her passion was poetry, Katharine’s three alluring suitors (two men and a woman) pulled her into major reform movements in a changing America after the Civil War. Teacher, poet, community builder, and patriot, she challenged Americans to make their country the best it could become in its values and literature. You will find yourself rooting for the unlikely triumph of this complicated woman on her journeys “from sea to shining sea.”

About The Author: Melinda Ponder is a graduate of Katharine Lee Bates’s Wellesley College and received a M.A. in American Studies and a Ph.D. in English and American Literature from Boston College. She has published numerous articles and given many talks and interviews on Katharine Lee Bates, and has published two books on Nathaniel Hawthorne as well. Born in Indianapolis, Ponder now resides in Cambridge, Massachusetts. She is Professor of English Emerita at Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.

Doors to open by 6:45pm.  Q&A and book signing to follow the event for those interested. Limited to 50 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. This program is a part of the library's '100 Authors In 2018' initiative to host 100 local authors in 1 year.

Non-Fiction Book Club: The Loyal Son: The War in Ben Franklin's House

The library's Non-Fiction Book Group is reading The Loyal Son: The War in Ben Franklin's House by Daniel Mark Epstein this month.  Books will be available at the second-floor Reference Desk by mid-February. New readers are always welcome!

About the Book: Ben Franklin is the most lovable of America's founding fathers. His wit, his charm, his inventiveness--even his grandfatherly appearance--are legendary. But this image obscures the scandals that dogged him throughout his life. In The Loyal Son, award-winning historian Daniel Mark Epstein throws the spotlight on one of the more enigmatic aspects of Franklin's biography: his complex and confounding relationship with his illegitimate son William. When he was twenty-four, Franklin fathered a child with a woman who was not his wife. He adopted the boy, raised him, and educated him to be his aide. Ben and William became inseparable. After the famous kite-in-a-thunderstorm experiment, it was William who proved that the electrical charge in a lightning bolt travels from the ground up, not from the clouds down. On a diplomatic mission to London, it was William who charmed London society. He was invited to walk in the procession of the coronation of George III; Ben was not. The outbreak of the American Revolution caused a devastating split between father and son. By then, William was royal governor of New Jersey, while Ben was one of the foremost champions of American independence. In 1776, the Continental Congress imprisoned William for treason. George Washington made efforts to win William's release, while his father, to the world's astonishment, appeared to have abandoned him to his fate. A fresh take on the combustible politics of the age of independence, The Loyal Son is a gripping account of how the agony of the American Revolution devastated one of America's most distinguished families.

WINTER LIVING HISTORY SERIES: An Evening with Albert Einstein

Actor George Capaccio will perform her one-man show, "Albert Einstein: Relatively Speaking." 

About The Show: In this interactive performance, actor and storyteller George Capaccio invites you to enter the boundary-breaking universe that is the mind of Albert Einstein. You will discover that time and space are inseparable, that time actually slows down the faster you go, and that if you could travel at the speed of light, time would actually stop! But there’s a lot more to the story than Einstein’s insights into the nature of reality. George focuses on the great scientist’s very human qualities, including his sense of humor, his fondness for Jewish jokes, and his trials and tribulations as a family man. As part of the show, you’ll time travel with George on the trajectory of Einstein’s life — from lowly patent clerk in a Swiss office to world-class physicist. 

About George: George Capaccio has performed in many of Boston’s theaters, including the American Repertory Theater (ART). For several years, he acted with the Museum of Science’s Science Theater, where he performed in the Planetarium as Galileo and in the Theater of Electricity as Nikola Tesla, in addition to acting in a play celebrating the scientific genius of Leonardo da Vinci.  George’s performing career includes working as a professional storyteller for audiences of all ages. For many years, he brought his love of stories and of performing to public schools in and around Boston, where he worked as an artist educator for grades K-8. George is also a writer and award-winning poet. His published works include both fiction and nonfiction titles for educational publishers. He is particularly proud of the books he wrote for a popular science series.

Doors to open by 6:45pm.  Q&A to follow the performance. Limited to 75 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. This program is a part of the library's winter living history series.

Evening Book Group Meeting: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

The library's Evening Book Group is reading The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah this month. Books and discussion guides are available at the Front Desk. New readers and new points of view are always welcome! No registration required.

About the Book: An epic love story and family drama set at the dawn of World War II. Viann and Isabelle have always been close despite their differences. Younger, bolder sister Isabelle lives in Paris while Viann lives a quiet and content life in the French countryside with her husband Antoine and their daughter. When World War II strikes and Antoine is sent off to fight, Viann and Isabelle's father sends Isabelle to help her older sister cope. As the war progresses, it's not only the sisters' relationship that is tested, but also their strength and their individual senses of right and wrong. With life as they know it changing in unbelievably horrific ways, Viann and Isabelle will find themselves facing frightening situations and responding in ways they never thought possible as bravery and resistance take different forms in each of their actions.
