Natick Repair Cafe
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Do you like taking things apart and seeing how they work? Does it bother you to dump a gadget in the trash knowing it could probably be fixed? Does it feel good to give an appliance new life? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, come to the Natick Repair Cafe! Just about everything today can be fixed with a few tools and some know-how: appliances, cars, electronics, computers, and tools too! There are many pluses to fixing your items, and not merely accepting that all consumer objects are disposable. Let's gather to share our repair successes and failures, spread the word on repair, and help each other fix our stuff!

Geof HewittAbout the Presenter

Geof Hewitt started publishing poems in 1966. He became Vermont's Poetry Slam Champion in 2004 (winning by one-tenth of a point). A Vermont championship has not been held since, so he tirelessly boasts that he is "Vermont's Reigning Slam Champ." Geof served for 21 years as Writing Consultant for the Vermont Department of Education, and now offers writing workshops for teachers and students throughout New England. He also teaches for Union Institute & University's undergraduate B.A. program. His recent books include Hewitt's Guide to Slam Poetry and Poetry Slam (Discover Writing Press, 2005), which won the Mom's Choice Award in 2008, and The Perfect Heart: Selected and New Poems (2010).

This month the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library Comic Book Club will read and discuss Tetris: The Games People Play by Box Brown. Tetris is widely considered one of the best and most universal games of all time, but as Brown's smart, well-paced history relates, there's more to the story than just falling blocks. The backroom deals, last-minute contract changes, and hectic trips to Moscow make for a quick and addictive tale that captures all the international drama. Brown's drawings are simple but highly effective, using a black, white, and yellow color scheme to evoke the limited or nonexistent graphics available to Alexey.

Comic Book Group meets on the second Thursday of each month. Copies of this month's title will be available at the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Dave Bartos at 508-647-6521 or Meena Jain at 508-653-6730.

Morning Book Group
11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

This month the Morning Book Group will read and discuss The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. Henrietta was a poor black tobacco farmer whose cells - taken without her knowledge in 1951 - became one of the most important tools in medicine, vital for developing the polio vaccine, cloning, gene mapping, and more. Henrietta's cells have been bought and sold by the billions, yet she remains virtually unknown, and her family can't afford health insurance. This phenomenal New York Times bestseller tells a riveting story of the collision between ethics, race, scientific discovery, and faith healing; and of a daughter consumed with questions about the mother she never knew.

The morning book group meets the third Wednesday of the month September through June. Join us for a lively discussion and a cup of tea. No need to sign up! Copies of this month's title are available at the circulation desk – call 508-647-6520 to request a copy.

Questions? Please contact Karen Perkins at kperkins@minlib.net or 508-647-6520.

The Wednesday Evening Book Group will read and discuss The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood. Stan and Charmaine are a married couple trying to stay afloat in the midst of an economic and social collapse. Job loss has forced them to live in their car, leaving them vulnerable to roving gangs. They desperately need to turn their situation around - and fast. The Positron Project in the town of Consilience seems to be the answer to their prayers. No one is unemployed and everyone gets a comfortable, clean house to live in...but only for six months out of the year...

And remember to catch up with the Wednesday Evening Book Group online! Check back all month and get the book discussion started early.

The Wednesday evening book group meets the last Wednesday of the month. Refreshments will be provided. No registration is required, and copies of this month's title will be available at the circulation desk.

Evening Book Group
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

This month the Wednesday Evening Book Group will read and discuss Native Speaker by Chang-rae Lee. In this story, Lee introduces us to Henry Park, whose harsh Korean upbringing has taught him to hide his emotions, remember everything he learns, and most of all to feel an overwhelming sense of alienation. In other words, it has shaped him as a natural spy. But the very attributes that help him to excel in his profession put a strain on his marriage to his American wife and stand in the way of his coming to terms with his young son's death. When he is assigned to spy on a rising Korean-American politician, his very identity is tested, and he must figure out who he is amid not only the conflicts within himself but also within the ethnic and political tensions of the New York City streets. Native Speaker is a story of cultural alienation. It is about fathers and sons, about the desire to connect with the world rather than stand apart from it, about loyalty and betrayal, about the alien in all of us and who we finally are.

And remember to catch up with the Wednesday Evening Book Group online! Check back all month and get the book discussion started early.

The Wednesday evening book group meets the last Wednesday of the month. Refreshments will be provided. No registration is required, and copies of this month's title will be available at the circulation desk.

Comic Book Group
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

This month the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library Comic Book Club will read and discuss Rolling Blackouts by Sarah Glidden. Glidden does a brilliant job in chronicling a two-month journey with journalist friends through Turkey, Syria, and Iraq to report stories about the impact of the Iraq War on Middle Eastern inhabitants. The power of Glidden's narrative is in how it asks fundamental questions about what journalism is, what kinds of stories it tells, and what purpose these stories serve. She also manages to crystallize hours of recorded interviews with the locals into insightful discussions of complex situations. Hand-drawn panels, word balloons, and text combine with gorgeous watercolors to keep the story visually interesting, with many small storytelling touches that help tell a complicated story with no pat answers.

Comic Book Group meets on the second Thursday of each month. Copies of this month's title will be available at the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Dave Bartos at 508-647-6521 or Meena Jain at 508-653-6730.

This month the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library Comic Book Club will read and discuss Alice in Sunderland by Bryan Talbot. Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1872) have had an immeasurable impact on children's literature and, indeed, the entire spectrum of popular entertainment, with Carroll's absurdist wordplay and surreal scenarios inspiring artistic visionaries from Salvador Dali to John Lennon. Such interesting literary tidbits as those abound in Talbot's lavishly illustrated graphic "entertainment" tracing the historical and cultural influences behind Carroll's masterpieces.

Comic Book Group meets on the second Thursday of each month. Copies of this month's title will be available at the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Dave Bartos at 508-647-6521 or Meena Jain at 508-653-6730.

The Comic Book Group will meet this month at Bacon Free Library (58 Eliot St. Natick, MA)

This month the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library Comic Book Club will read and discuss The Mighty Thor by Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman. When the classic Thor is no longer righteous enough to wield his hero-making mallet, the only person worthy enough to take up the mantle is ... well, you don't find out in this volume. But the point is that it's a lady, and she's every bit up to the task. Marvel stalwart Aaron ensures that there's enough humor and scrappy personality to offset all the standard trappings. Dauterman's majestic, gleaming figures, meanwhile, smash through intricately imagined fantasy environments. 

Comic Book Group meets on the second Thursday of each month. Copies of this month's title will be available at the Bacon Free Library and the Morse Institute Library. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Dave Bartos at 508-647-6521 or Meena Jain at 508-653-6730.

We'll also be selling delicious baked goods prepared by our volunteers. Shop a wonderful selection of homemade cookies, cakes, brownies, muffins, breads, pies, jams, and jellies!

All proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Morse Institute Library as they support library services like the museum passes, Speed Read collections, and adult, teen & children's programs. Thank you!
