New Jim Crow
The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander

Seldom does a book have the impact of Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow. Since it was first published in 2010, it has been cited in judicial decisions and has been adopted in campus-wide and community-wide reads; it helped inspire the creation of the Marshall Project and the new $100 million Art for Justice Fund; it has been the winner of numerous prizes, including the prestigious NAACP Image Award; and it has spent nearly 250 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.Most important of all, it has spawned a whole generation of criminal justice reform activists and organizations motivated by Michelle Alexander's unforgettable argument that "we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it." As the Birmingham News proclaimed, it is "undoubtedly the most important book published in this century about the U.S."Now, ten years after it was first published, The New Press is proud to issue a tenth-anniversary edition with a new preface by Michelle Alexander that discusses the impact the book has had and the state of the criminal justice reform movement today. The Booked for Lunch discussion group is facilitated by Library Director, Karen Demers on Zoom. Receive a link by emailing karendemers@wilbrahamlibrary.org.

Exploring the Quabbin Resevoir

How much do you know about the Quabbin Reservoir, it’s history and how it is managed?  

The Quabbin Reservoir is an "accidental wilderness".  While it is a haven for wildlife, it's main purpose is to provide drinking water for the City of Boston.  It is the largest reservoir of surface water in the world, and it is the only one of its size that doesn't require further filtration before entering into the water supply.  Join us to learn more about the Reservoir's unique history and the challenges that go into maintaining it.  This presentation will also cover many of the questions and myths that surround the Reservoir.  

Presented by Maria Beiter-Tucker, Visitor Center Manager at the Department of Conservation and Recreation Quabbin Visitor Center.

This is a virtual program and registration is necessary in order to participate.  Registrants will receive a link to the event within 48 hours of the scheduled presentation.  New to Zoom?  Check out these two short videos to help you get started; Join a Meeting, and Joining and Configuring Audio and Video.

The Bookshop on the Corner
The Bookshop on the Corner, by Jenny Colgan

Nina Redmond is a literary matchmaker. Pairing a reader with that perfect book is her passion... and also her job. Or at least it was. Until yesterday, she was a librarian in the hectic city. But now the job she loved is no more. Determined to make a new life for herself, Nina moves to a sleepy village many miles away. There she buys a van and transforms it into a bookmobile--a mobile bookshop that she drives from neighborhood to neighborhood, changing one life after another with the power of storytelling. From helping her grumpy landlord deliver a lamb, to sharing picnics with a charming train conductor who serenades her with poetry, Nina discovers there's plenty of adventure, magic, and soul in a place that's beginning to feel like home... a place where she just might be able to write her own happy ending.

Little Sister

Little Sister a memior, by Patricia Walsh Chadwick

 

 

Imagine an eighteen-year-old American girl who has never read a newspaper, watched television, or made a phone call. An eighteen-year-old-girl who has never danced-and this in the 1960s. It is in Cambridge, Massachusetts where Leonard Feeney, a controversial (soon to be excommunicated) Catholic priest, has founded a religious community called the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The Center's members-many of them educated at Harvard and Radcliffe-surrender all earthly possessions and aspects of their life, including their children, to him. Patricia Chadwick was one of those children, and Little Sister is her account of growing up in the Feeney sect. Separated from her parents and forbidden to speak to them, Patricia bristles against the community's draconian rules, yearning for another life. When, at seventeen, she is banished from the Center, her home, she faces the world alone, without skills, family, or money but empowered with faith and a fierce determination to succeed on her own, which she does, rising eventually to the upper echelons of the world of finance and investing. A tale of resilience and grace, Little Sister chronicles, in riveting prose, a surreal childhood and does so without rancor or self-pity.
