Join us to hear bestselling author, Bill Martin talk about his newest novel being released this month! Bound for Gold continues the further adventures of Boston rare-book dealer Peter Fallon and his girlfriend, Evangeline Carrington.

Past and present intertwine in Bound for Gold as two stories of the eternal struggle for power and wealth become one.

William Martin is the New York Times bestselling author of ten novels. He tells the American story, from the Pilgrims to 9/11, in novels including Back Bay, City of Dreams, The Lost Constitution, and the Lincoln Letter. He has written an award winning PBS documentary on the life of George Washington, and a cult-classic horror film, and was the 2005 recipient of the New England Book Award.

Return of the Sea Otter: the story of the animal that evaded extinction on the Pacific Coast
7:00 PM

These adorable, furry marine mammals--often seen floating on their backs holding hands--reveal the health of the coastal ecosystem along the Pacific Ocean. Once hunted for their prized fur during the 1700s and 1800s, these animals nearly went extinct. Only now, nearly a century after hunting ceased, are populations showing stable growth in some places. Sea otters are a keystone species in coastal areas, feeding on sea urchins, clams, crab and other crustaceans. When they are present, kelp beds are thick and healthy, providing homes for an array of sealife. When otters disappear, sea urchins take over, and the kelp disappears along with all of the creatures that live in the beds. Now, thanks to their protected status, sea otters are making a comeback in California, Washington, and Alaska. 

Todd McLeish is a science writer with three published books, all on natural history topics: NarwhalsBasking with Humpbacks, and Golden Wings and Hairy Toes: New England Wildlife. He is a popular public speaker on cruise ships and at museums and environmental centers and has published articles on wildlife topics in Earthwatch JournalBird Watcher's DigestWildBird, and Natural New England, among other publications.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is free and open to all.

This unique presentation entertains with a dramtic chronicling of the Cuban Missile Crisis (with slides) while providing useful analysis of JFK's process of tackling major decisions in practical ways that others can learn from and adopt.

Chappaquiddick Tragedy: Kennedy's Second Passenger Revealed
3:00 PM

In mid-morning of July 19, 1969 Sen. Ted Kennedy reported an accident he had had the previous night in which Mary Jo Kopechne had drowned. No one believed the story he wrote in his police report. What was he covering up? What really happened? Author Donald Nelson pored over thousands of pages of evidence, testimony, books, and written accounts, which led him to offer an explanation of what actually happened that night in his new book Chappaquiddick Tragedy: Kennedy’s Second Passenger Revealed. The book is an unintended result of a retirement project Mr. Nelson undertook after a career as a research physicist at Bell Laboratories. “I saw a documentary on A&E about the accident which outlined the questions around the event, and thought it would be a good intellectual exercise to examine it,” he said. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library and is free and open to all.
