Second Tuesday Book Club

Image result for a long way gone memoirs of a boy soldierThis month's book is A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah. 

New location: The Second Tuesday Book Club is now meeting in Conference Room B on the Upper Level

"This is how wars are fought now: by children, traumatized, hopped up on drugs, and wielding AK-47s. Children have become the soldiers of choice. In the more than fifty violent conflicts going on worldwide, it is estimated that there are some 300,000 child soldiers. Ishmael Beah used to be one of them. What does war look like through the eyes of a child soldier? How does one become a killer? How does one stop? Child soldiers have been profiled by journalists, and novelists have struggled to imagine their lives. But it is rare to find a first-person account from someone who endured this hell and survived. In A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier, Ishmael Beah, now twenty-six years old, tells a powerfully gripping story. This is an extraordinary and mesmerizing account, told with real literary force and heartbreaking honesty"--Container.

Book club books are 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.

All readers are always welcome!

Special Needs Financial Planning- Braintree SEPAC

James Bush has been advising clients on complex financial, business and life matters for over 35 years.   Families who have a child with special needs face a unique set of expenses. Financial planning for special needs families is a must.  Although the prospect of financial planning for the rest of a child’s life can seem difficult in the midst of all the everyday challenges, having a plan can provide a greater sense of security.  Topics discussed will include making plans for medical expenses, caretaking, and preserving a child’s government benefits. Mr. Bush will provide an overview of the legal and financial needs families should address.

WORKSHOPS ARE FREE AND OPEN TO ALL! 

*For Braintree Public Schools staff; sign up on smart.edu and see a SEPAC representative for Professional Development credit forms.

RSVP not required. 

If you have any questions, please call Vicki Griffith (SEPAC) at

Second Tuesday Book Club

Image result for There Will Be ApricotsThis month's book is Tomorrow there will be Apricots by Jessica Soffer.

New location: The Second Tuesday Book Club is now meeting in Conference Room B on the Upper Level.

"Lorca spends her life poring over cookbooks, making croissants and chocolat chaud, seeking out rare ingredients, all to earn the love of her distracted chef of a mother, who is now packing her off to boarding school. In one last effort to prove herself indispensable, Lorca resolves to track down the recipe for her mother's ideal meal, an obscure Middle Eastern dish called masgouf. Victoria, grappling with her husband's death, has been dreaming of the daughter they gave up forty years ago. An Iraqi Jewish immigrant who used to run a restaurant, she starts teaching cooking lessons; Lorca signs up. Together, they cook, but they also begin to suspect they are connected by more than their love of food. Soon, though, they must reckon with the past, the future, and the truth--whatever it might be."

Book club books are 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.

All readers are always welcome!

The Reader's Group Book Club

Image result for Manhattan Beach by Jennifer EganThis month's title is Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan.

"Anna Kerrigan, nearly twelve years old, accompanies her father to visit Dexter Styles, a man who, she gleans, is crucial to the survival of her father and her family. She is mesmerized by the sea beyond the house and by some charged mystery between the two men. ?Years later, her father has disappeared and the country is at war. Anna works at the Brooklyn Naval Yard, where women are allowed to hold jobs that once belonged to men, now that soldiers are abroad. She becomes the first female diver, the most dangerous and exclusive of occupations, repairing the ships that will help America win the war. One evening at a nightclub, she meets Dexter Styles again, and begins to understand the complexity of her father's life, the reasons he might have vanished."

Book club books are available at the circulation desk about one month before the meeting date and are due back on the night of the discussion.

All readers are always welcome!

The Reader's Group Book Club

Image result for A Piece of the World by Christina Baker KlineThis month's title is A Piece of the World by Christina Baker Klein.

"To Christina Olson, the entire world was her family's remote farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. Born in the home her family had lived in for generations, and increasingly incapacitated by illness, Christina seemed destined for a small life. Instead, for more than twenty years, she was host and inspiration for the artist Andrew Wyeth, and became the subject of one of the best-known American paintings of the twentieth century. Christina Baker Kline interweaves fact and fiction in a powerful novel that illuminates a little-known part of America's history."

Book club books are available at the circulation desk about one month before the meeting date and are due back on the night of the discussion.

All readers are always welcome!
