Virtual Nonfiction Book Club

Cover of the book Lincoln's LieThis month's book is: Lincoln’s Lie: A True Civil War Caper Through Fake News, Wall Street, and the White House by Elizabeth Mitchell.

A thrilling dive into the little-known, darker side of a revered president’s history, Lincoln’s Lie untangles the threads behind a mysterious 1864 newspaper article to reveal how Lincoln manipulated the media during the Civil War, shining new light onto today’s issues of fake news and presidential conflict with the press...

In Lincoln's Lie, Mitchell brings to life the remarkable story of the manipulators of the news and why they decided to play such a dangerous game during a critical period of American history. Her account of Lincoln's troubled relationship to the press and its role in the Civil War is one that speaks powerfully to our current political crises: fake news, profiteering, Constitutional conflict, and a president at war with the press. -- Hoopla

Book club books will be available for pick up at the circulation desk about one month before the discussion date and are due back on the night of the discussion.  This title is also available as an ebook on Hoopla.

This meeting will be held on Zoom.  Registration is required and the Zoom invitation will be sent out the day before the meeting. 

All readers are always welcome.

Virtual WWII Facts & Fiction

Join other history buffs and readers for WWII Facts & Fiction, a virtual evening of World War II history, trivia, and reading recommendations, on Tuesday, January 26, 7-8 pm. The Zoom webinar link will be sent to registered attendees one day prior to the event.

Featured author Joe Pereira will discuss his historical research for his new book, All Souls Day: The World War II Battle and the Search for a Lost U.S. Battalion (Potomac Books, 2020); Trivia MC Christopher Griffin (Town of Braintree Parks & Rec Dept.) will challenge us with WWII trivia; and Laurie Cavanaugh (Circulation Librarian) will offer WWII fiction and nonfiction reading recommendations gathered from Thayer Public Library staff.

Advance registration is required through the library's event calendar or by calling the Reference Desk at 781-848-0405 x4417. This virtual program will be held via Zoom, with only the presenters appearing on video. Audience members will not be shown on video.

About All Souls Day: The World War II Battle and the Search for a Lost U.S. Battalion 

The U.S. Army attacked three villages near the German-Belgium border, surprising the Germans who surrendered with little resistance. The German army regrouped and counterattacked. A brief but horrific battle ensued, and as the enemy pressed forward, the Americans retreated in haste, leaving behind their wounded and their dead. Discussion of this week-long conflict that began on All Souls Day, November 2, 1944, has been confined to officer training school, in part due to its heavy losses and ignominy.

After the war the U.S. Army returned to the battlefield to bring home its fallen. To its dismay it found that many of these men had vanished. The disappearances were puzzling and for decades the U.S. government searched unsuccessfully for clues. After poring over now-declassified battlefield reports and interviewing family members, the authors reconstruct a spellbinding story of love and sacrifice, honor and bravery, as well as a portrait of the gnawing pain of families not knowing what became of their loved ones.

The Reader's Group Book Club

Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots - Sydney Jewish  MuseumThis month's discussion book is: Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots by Deborah Feldman.

Now a Netflix original series!

Unorthodox is the bestselling memoir of a young Jewish woman’s escape from a religious sect, in the tradition of Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Infidel and Carolyn Jessop’s Escape, featuring a new epilogue by the author.

As a member of the strictly religious Satmar sect of Hasidic Judaism, Deborah Feldman grew up under a code of relentlessly enforced customs governing everything from what she could wear and to whom she could speak to what she was allowed to read. Yet in spite of her repressive upbringing, Deborah grew into an independent-minded young woman whose stolen moments reading about the empowered literary characters of Jane Austen and Louisa May Alcott helped her to imagine an alternative way of life among the skyscrapers of Manhattan. Trapped as a teenager in a sexually and emotionally dysfunctional marriage to a man she barely knew, the tension between Deborah’s desires and her responsibilities as a good Satmar girl grew more explosive until she gave birth at nineteen and realized that, regardless of the obstacles, she would have to forge a path—for herself and her son—to happiness and freedom. Amazon.com

Remarkable and fascinating, this “sensitive and memorable coming-of-age story” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) is one you won’t be able to put down.

Our meeting will be held via Zoom. Please register so that you recieve the email invitation and link. These emails will be sent out the day before.

Book club books are available at the Circulation Desk on the Main Level about a month before the meeting and are due back after the discussion.

All readers are always welcome!

Virtual Brown Bag Book Club

This month's selection is The Water Keeper by Charles Martin. The Virtual Brown Bag Book Club meeting will be held via Zoom, 12:00-1:00 p.m. on February 10th, the second Wednesday of the month. The virtual meeting room will open at 11:50 a.m. for anyone who would like to arrive early and get settled with audio and video up and running.

This virtual meeting is open to new members and guests, but advance registration is required by Tuesday, February 9th. The Zoom invite will be mailed only to registered participants, one day before the meeting date.

Cover image of The Water Keeper

A riveting new story of heroism, heartache, and the power of love to heal all wounds.

Murphy Shepherd is a man with many secrets. He lives alone on an island, tending the grounds of a church with no parishioners, and he's dedicated his life to rescuing those in peril. But as he mourns the loss of his mentor and friend, Murph himself may be more lost than he realizes.

When he pulls a beautiful woman named Summer out of Florida's Intracoastal Waterway, Murph's mission to lay his mentor to rest at the end of the world takes a dangerous turn. Drawn to Summer, and desperate to find her missing daughter, Murph is pulled deeper and deeper into the dark and dangerous world of modern-day slavery.

With help from some unexpected new friends, including a faithful Labrador he plucks from the ocean and an ex-convict named Clay, Murph must race against the clock to locate the girl before he is consumed by the secrets of his past--and the ghosts who tried to bury them.

With Charles Martin's trademark lyricism and poignant prose, The Water Keeper is at once a tender love story and a heartrending search for freedom.

The monthly selection is available as a downloadable e-book in the library's Hoopla collection: https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/12659436You must have a Thayer Public Library card to access the Thayer Public Library's Hoopla collection, but if you have a library card from a different library that offers Hoopla, you can also find it in your library's Hoopla collection. Hoopla has no holds, no waiting, so you will be able to borrow the book right away. Copies of the print edition in regular and large-print will be available at the library one month ahead of the meeting. 

Please check our current hours before visiting the library, and email Laurie at lcavanaugh@braintreema.gov if you are having trouble borrowing a copy of the book.

Second Tuesday Book Club

This month's discussion is on Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman: "The story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes the only way to survive is to open her heart. Meet Eleanor Oliphant: she struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking. That, combined with her unusual appearance (scarred cheek, tendency to wear the same clothes year in, year out), means that Eleanor has become a creature of habit (to say the least) and a bit of a loner. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kind of friends who rescue each other from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond's big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one"-- Provided by publisher.

Book club books are available for pick up at the circulation desk about one month before the discussion date. This title is also available through Overdrive in e-book and audiobook.

This discussion will be held on Zoom. Please register so that you will receive the Zoom invitation with meeting access. Invitations will be sent out the day before the meeting.

All readers are always welcome!

Virtual Brown Bag Book Club

This month's selection is Be Frank with Me by Julia Claiborne Johnson. The Virtual Brown Bag Book Club meeting will be held via Zoom, 12:00-1:00 p.m. on March 10th, the second Wednesday of the month. The virtual meeting room will open at 11:50 a.m. for anyone who would like to arrive early and get settled with audio and video up and running.

This virtual meeting is open to new members and guests, but advance registration is required by Tuesday, March 9th. The Zoom invite will be mailed only to registered participants, one day before the meeting date.

Cover image of Be Frank with Me

A sparkling talent makes her fiction debut with this infectious novel that combines the charming pluck of Eloise, the poignant psychological quirks of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and the page-turning spirit of Where’d You Go, Bernadette.

Reclusive literary legend M. M. “Mimi” Banning has been holed up in her Bel Air mansion for years. But after falling prey to a Bernie Madoff-style ponzi scheme, she’s flat broke. Now Mimi must write a new book for the first time in decades, and to ensure the timely delivery of her manuscript, her New York publisher sends an assistant to monitor her progress. The prickly Mimi reluctantly complies—with a few stipulations: No Ivy-Leaguers or English majors. Must drive, cook, tidy. Computer whiz. Good with kids. Quiet, discreet, sane.

When Alice Whitley arrives at the Banning mansion, she’s put to work right away—as a full-time companion to Frank, the writer’s eccentric nine-year-old, a boy with the wit of Noel Coward, the wardrobe of a 1930s movie star, and very little in common with his fellow fourth-graders.

The monthly selection is available as a downloadable e-book in the library's Hoopla collection: https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/12308961You must have a Thayer Public Library card to access the Thayer Public Library's Hoopla collection, but if you have a library card from a different library that offers Hoopla, you can also find it in your library's Hoopla collection. Hoopla has no holds, no waiting, so you will be able to borrow the book right away. Copies of the print edition in regular and large-print will be available at the library one month ahead of the meeting. 

Please check our current hours before visiting the library, and email Laurie at lcavanaugh@braintreema.gov if you are having trouble borrowing a copy of the book.
