Virtual Nonfiction Book Club

This month's book is: Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things by Randy O. Frost

Fans of the A&E series Hoarders will be the ideal (but not the only) audience for this very intriguing book. The authors approach the subject, which they have studied for more than 10 years, from an analytic point of view. What makes people believe they shouldn't throw anything away? What causes otherwise ordinary men and women to fill their lives, and their homes, with detritus because they are unable to differentiate between useful items and waste? How is it possible for someone to live in a house full of trash and simply not know it is there (a phenomenon the authors call clutter blindness )? Hoarding isn't new Dante wrote about hoarders, and so did Dickens and most readers will recognize some aspects of themselves in the people the authors discuss. We may not be hoarders exactly, but the authors make us take a closer look at our own lives, wondering (for example) about that very fine line that divides a collector from a hoarder. Fascinating stuff that could generate some off-the-book-pages interest.— Booklist.

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 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.

Amazon.com: The Beantown Girls (9781542044523): Healey, Jane: Books

Tonight we will be discussing Beantown Girls by Jean Healey. Book club books are available at the Circulation Desk on the Main Level about a month before the meeting and are due back on the Monday following the discussion.

Summary: 
"1944: Fiona Denning has her entire future planned out. She'll work in city hall, marry her fiancé when he returns from the war, and settle down in the Boston suburbs. But when her fiancé is reported missing after being shot down in Germany, Fiona's long-held plans are shattered. Determined to learn her fiancé's fate, Fiona leaves Boston to volunteer overseas as a Red Cross Clubmobile girl, recruiting her two best friends to come along. There's the outspoken Viviana, who is more than happy to quit her secretarial job for a taste of adventure. Then there's Dottie, a shy music teacher whose melodious talents are sure to bring heart and hope to the boys on the front lines. Chosen for their inner strength and outer charm, the trio isn't prepared for the daunting challenges of war. But through it all come new friendships and romances, unforeseen dangers, and unexpected dreams. As the three friends begin to understand the real reasons they all came to the front, their courage and camaraderie will see them through some of the best and worst times of their lives."

Second Tuesday Book Club

The Summer Before the War: A Novel: Simonson, Helen: 9780812983203:  Amazon.com: Books

This month's discussion book is The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson, the bestselling author of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand. A breathtaking novel of love on the eve of World War I that reaches far beyond the small English town in which it is set. NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND NPR

          "East Sussex, 1914. It is the end of England’s brief Edwardian summer, and everyone agrees that the weather has never been so beautiful. Hugh Grange, down from his medical studies, is visiting his Aunt Agatha, who lives with her husband in the small, idyllic coastal town of Rye. Agatha’s husband works in the Foreign Office, and she is certain he will ensure that the recent saber rattling over the Balkans won’t come to anything. And Agatha has more immediate concerns; she has just risked her carefully built reputation by pushing for the appointment of a woman to replace the Latin master.
            When Beatrice Nash arrives with one trunk and several large crates of books, it is clear she is significantly more freethinking—and attractive—than anyone believes a Latin teacher should be. For her part, mourning the death of her beloved father, who has left her penniless, Beatrice simply wants to be left alone to pursue her teaching and writing.
           But just as Beatrice comes alive to the beauty of the Sussex landscape and the colorful characters who populate Rye, the perfect summer is about to end. For despite Agatha’s reassurances, the unimaginable is coming. Soon the limits of progress, and the old ways, will be tested as this small Sussex town and its inhabitants go to war."

Book club books are available for pick up at the circulation desk about one month before the and are due back on the Friday following the Tuesday meeting date. This title is also vailable in Overdrive.

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.

Virtual Brown Bag Book Club

This month's selection is Little Gods by Meng Jin. The Virtual Brown Bag Book Club meeting will be held via Zoom, 12:00-1:00 p.m. on May 12th, 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 7pm on Tuesday, May 11th. The Zoom invite will be mailed only to registered participants one day before the meeting date.

"Jin's stunning debut follows 17-year-old Liya on her journey to China with the ashes of her recently deceased mother, a mysterious and mercurial woman whom Liya both loved and resented. Su Lan, her mother, was a former physicist from China who died in America, where she had lived and worked for nearly two decades. Intertwined with Liya's grief-stricken quest is the voice of Zhu Wen, Su Lan's former neighbor in Shanghai, whose memory of Su Lan as a beautiful, charismatic, and fiercely brilliant physics student in a happy marriage to a handsome doctor does not square with the woman Liya knows. The third narrative strand belongs to Yongzong, Su Lan's husband and Liya's father, who has long lost touch with Su Lan and has never known Liya. Liya arrives in China with only her mother's last known address, in Shanghai, where Su Lan had once lived with Yongzong. On first meeting Zhu Wen there, Liya realizes just how little she knew about her mother. 

Artfully composed and emotionally searing, Jin's debut about lost girls, bottomless ambition, and the myriad ways family members can hurt and betray one another is gripping from beginning to end." -- Publishers Weekly

The monthly selection is available as a downloadable e-book in the library's Hoopla collection: https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/12456861You 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.

Virtual Nonfiction Book Club

This month's book is: A Woman of No Importance  by Sonia Purnell

The large cast of characters and nuanced detail in this exceptional true story require close attention, but the payoff for readers is tenfold. Purnell shines a spotlight on Virginia Hall, an American woman, by recounting her unprecedented heroism in WWII. An accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound cost Hall her leg. Even so, she hiked through the Pyrenees with a wooden prosthetic to escape Nazis who considered her a dangerous spy and top target for capture. Stories like this one layer on top of each other in a seemingly endless display of bravery. As part of the Resistance in France, Hall masterminded the prison escape of 12 agents, developed the tactics that would bloom into successful guerilla warfare, and cultivated a network of spies so effective that her superiors said progress in France would have been impossible without her. During her lifetime, Virginia's gender and her wooden leg were used as excuses to dismiss and undervalue her. Purnell's writing is as precise and engaging as her research, and this book restores overdue attention to one of the world's great war heroes. It's a joy to read, and it will swell readers' hearts with pride.—Booklist  

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 on Overdrive.

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

A Historical Novels Review Editors' Choice

A Jewish Book Award Finalist

The New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Exiles conjures her best novel yet, a pre-World War II-era story with the emotional resonance of Orphan Train and All the Light We Cannot See, centering on the Kindertransports that carried thousands of children out of Nazi-occupied Europe--and one brave woman who helped them escape to safety.

The monthly selection is available as a downloadable e-book in the library's Hoopla collection: https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/13217844You 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.

Virtual Nonfiction Book Club

This month's book is: Contagious: Why Things Catch On by Jonah Berger

We're all familiar with the idea of something a video clip, for example going viral. But how does it happen? Berger identifies six principles that operate, either singly or in combination, when anything goes viral, including social currency (a restaurant makes itself so hard to find that it becomes famous); emotion (the clip of Susan Boyle's first appearance on Britain's Got Talent exploded on YouTube because people reacted to it emotionally); triggers (more people search online for the song Friday on Friday than on any other day of the week); and practical value (a man's video showing how to cleanly shuck a cob of corn exploded due to its useful application). Some of what the author talks about here will seem utterly obvious, but there is plenty of insider stuff as well (for example, the brain trust at Apple debated which way the logo should face on the cover of its laptops: rightside up to the user, or rightside up to someone looking at the laptop's open lid?). On such decisions are fortunes made. An engaging and often surprising book. – Booklist

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.

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. Just ask for the Brown Bag Book Club selection at the Circulation Desk on the Main Level.

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.

Virtual Brown Bag Book Club

This month's selection is Hieroglyphics by Jill McCorkle. The Virtual Brown Bag Book Club meeting will be held via Zoom, 12-1 pm on Wednesday, September 8th, 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 8 pm on Tuesday, September 7th. The Zoom invite will be mailed only to registered participants one day before the meeting date.

A mesmerizing novel about the burden of secrets carried across generations.

Lil and Frank married young, launched into courtship when they bonded over how they both—suddenly, tragically— lost a parent when they were children. Over time, their marriage grew and strengthened, with each still wishing for so much more understanding of the parents they’d lost prematurely.

Now, after many years in Boston, they’ve retired to North Carolina. There, Lil, determined to leave a history for their children, sifts through letters and notes and diary entries—perhaps revealing more secrets than Frank wants their children to know. Meanwhile, Frank has become obsessed with what might have been left behind at the house he lived in as a boy on the outskirts of town, where a young single mother, Shelley, is just trying to raise her son with some sense of normalcy. Frank’s repeated visits to Shelley’s house begin to trigger memories of her own family, memories that she’d hoped to keep buried. Because, after all, not all parents are ones you wish to remember.

Hieroglyphics reveals the difficulty of ever really knowing the intentions and dreams and secrets of the people who raised you. In her deeply layered and masterful novel, Jill McCorkle deconstructs and reconstructs what it means to be a father or a mother, and what it means to be a child piecing together the world around us, a child learning to make sense of the hieroglyphics of history and memory.

The monthly selection is available as a downloadable e-book in the library's Hoopla collection: https://www.hoopladigital.com/title/12468977You 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.
