Booked for Lunch

The Midnight Library
The Midnight Library, by Matt Haig

Between life and death there is a library, and within that library, the shelves go on forever. Every book provides a chance to try another life you could have lived, to see how things would be if you had made other choices. Would you have done anything different, if you had the chance to undo your regrets? Up until now Nora Seed's life has been full of misery. When she finds herself in the Midnight Library, she can now undo every decision she regrets. But things aren't always what she imagined they'd be... The Booked for Lunch discussion group is held in the Brooks Room of the library and is facilitated by Library Director, Karen Demers.
Copies of the books are held at the Service Desk.

Stress Survival Guide Workshop

Pressures from school, family, friends, work: our teens are surrounded and burdened by stress from all sides. Because untreated stress can lead to mental health conditions like depression, teens need to develop practical strategies to manage day-to-day stress.

Program is facilitated by Families for Depression Awareness staff. A teen speaker will also talk about how they handled stress in their life and what coping skills they found helpful.
 
This workshop is not for parents, but intended for teens and young adults ages 14 +.

Booked for Lunch

Siracusa
Siracusa, by Delia Ephron

An electrifying novel about marriage and deceit from bestselling author Delia Ephron that follows two couples on vacation in Siracusa, a town on the coast of Sicily, where the secrets they have hidden from each other are exposed and relationships are unraveled. New Yorkers Michael, a famous writer, and Lizzie, a journalist, travel to Italy with their friends from Maine--Finn, his wife Taylor, and their daughter Snow."From the beginning," says Taylor, "it was a conspiracy for Lizzie and Finn to be together." Told Rashomon-style in alternating points of view, the characters expose and stumble upon lies and infidelities past and present. Snow, ten years old and precociously drawn into a far more adult drama, becomes the catalyst for catastrophe as the novel explores collusion and betrayal in marriage. With her inimitable psychological astuteness, and uncanny understanding of the human heart, Ephron delivers a powerful meditation on marriage, friendship, and the meaning of travel. Set on the sun-drenched coast of the Ionian Sea, Siracusa unfolds with the pacing of a psychological thriller and delivers an unexpected final act that none can see coming. The Booked for Lunch discussion group is held in the Brooks Room of the library and is facilitated by Library Director, Karen Demers.
Copies of the books are held at the Service Desk.

The Dutch House
The Dutch House, by Ann Patchett

At the end of the Second World War, Cyril Conroy combines luck and a single canny investment to begin an enormous real estate empire, propelling his family from poverty to enormous wealth. His first order of business is to buy the Dutch House, a lavish estate in the suburbs outside of Philadelphia. Meant as a surprise for his wife, the house sets in motion the undoing of everyone he loves. Cyril's son Danny and his older sister Maeve are exiled from the house where they grew up by their stepmother. The two wealthy siblings are thrown back into the poverty their parents had escaped from and find that all they have to count on is one another. The Booked for Lunch discussion group is held in the Brooks Room of the library and is facilitated by Library Director, Karen Demers.
Copies of the books are held at the Service Desk.

Booked for Lunch

Today will be different

Today will be Different, by Marie Semple


 

Eleanor knows she's a mess. But today, she will tackle the little things. She will shower and get dressed. She will have her poetry and yoga lessons after dropping off her son, Timby. She won't swear. She will initiate sex with her husband, Joe. But before she can put her modest plan into action--life happens. Today, it turns out, is the day Timby has decided to fake sick to weasel his way into his mother's company. It's also the day Joe has chosen to tell his office--but not Eleanor--that he's on vacation. Just when it seems like things can't go more awry, an encounter with a former colleague produces a graphic memoir whose dramatic tale threatens to reveal a buried family secret. A hilarious, heart-filled story about reinvention, sisterhood, and how sometimes it takes facing up to our former selves to truly begin living.

 

The Booked for Lunch discussion group is held in the Brooks Room of the library and is facilitated by Library Director, Karen Demers.


Copies of the books are held at the Service Desk.
