Asteroids: Friends or Foes?
7:00 PM

Since the first spotting of a 'minor planet' in 1801, astronomers have discovered more than 750,000 small rocky bodies orbiting between Mars and Jupiter. Asteroids.

What are Asteroids? How are Asteroids and Meteorites related? What can we learn about Asteroids from the missions that NASA and JAXA (Japanese Space Exploration program) are readying to land on asteroids? Not to mention, when might one of them strike Earth with enough force to create widespread damage?

Join us as Kelly Beatty helps us explore the science (and science fiction) surrounding asteroids. Examples of meteorites will be on display as well.

Kelly Beatty has been explaining the science and wonder of astronomy to the public since 1974. An award-winning writer and communicator, he specializes in planetary science and space exploration as Senior Contributing Editor for Sky & Telescope magazine. Beatty enjoys sharing his passion for astronomy with a wide spectrum of audiences, from children to professional astronomers, and you'll occasionally hear his interviews and guest commentaries on National Public Radio and The Weather Channel.

Wednesday Afternoon Book Group
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

This month we are discussing THE LIFE SHE WAS GIVEN by Ellen Marie Wiseman.

About the book:

On a summer evening in 1931, Lilly Blackwood glimpses circus lights from the grimy window of her attic bedroom.  On this unforgettable night, Lilly is taken outside for the first time - and sold to the circus sideshow.  More than two decades later, nineteen-year-old Julia Blackwood has inherited her parent's estate and horse farm.  For Julia, home was an unhappy place full of strict rules and forbidden rooms, and she hopes that returning might erase those painful memories.  Instead, she becomes immersed in a mystery involving a hidden attic room and photos of circus scenes featuring a striking young girl.

Please join us!  Books are available at the Main Desk the month before we meet.  New members are always welcome!

Critical Hours: Search and Rescue in the White Mountains
7:00 PM

A sudden storm, a forgotten headlamp, and suddenly a leisurely hike turns into a treacherous endeavor for those who hike the White Mountains.

In the past decade, inexpensive but sophisticated navigation devices and mobile phones have led to alarming levels of overconfidence on the trail. Adding to this worrisome trend, the increasing popularity of ventures into mountainous terrain has led hikers seeking solitude—or an adrenaline rush—into increasingly remote or risky forays.

Join us and hear stories from Sandy Stott, former editor of Appalachian Mountain Club's journal Appalachia, about the hikers who climb the mountains, and the steadfast Search and Rescuers who help save countless lives every year.

Sandy Stott is the author of Critical Hours: Search and Rescue in the White Mountains, a former editor of Appalachian Mountain Club's journal Appalachia, a longtime English teacher, and a lifelong wanderer in the White Mountains.

Author Event: Jane Healey
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Please welcome author Jane Healey to the Nevins Library!  She will be discussing her newest book THE BEANTOWN GIRLS!

A bit about the book:

A novel of love, courage, and danger unfolds as World War II’s brightest heroines—the best of friends—take on the front lines.

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.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.  Refreshments will be served.

About the book:

When it comes to law and order, East Texas plays by its own rules - a fact that Darren Mathews, a black Texas Ranger, knows all too well.  Deeply ambivalent about growing up black in the lone star state, he was the first in his family to get as far away from Texas as he could.  Until duty called him home.  When his allegiance to his roots puts his job in jeopardy, he travels up Highway 59 to the small town of Lark, where two murders - a black lawyer from Chicago and a local white woman - have stirred up a hornet's nest of resentment.  Darren must solve the crimes - and save himself in the process - before Lark's long-simmering racial fault lines erupt.

Bestseller Book Club
7:00 PM

Come join the Bestseller Book Club as we read through the Bestsellers you may have missed. We meet the 1st Tuesday of each Month at 7pm, and every month we will have a different Bestseller to read and discuss!

May's Title is Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

Ugliness seethes under a placid suburban surface in this multilayered novel, in which two families grow too close for comfort. Itinerant artist Mia and her teenage daughter Pearl rent a Shaker Heights, Ohio, house from the Richardsons, who have four kids around Pearl's age. Three of the four become Pearl's constant companions; the fourth becomes Mia's. A custody suit elsewhere in the community threatens everything -- and calls into being the "little fires everywhere." Told backwards through time via multiple narrators, this insightful book will appeal to fans of complex family dramas

Books are available to pick up at the Main Desk for one month prior to this meeting.

Wednesday Afternoon Book Group
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

This month we will be discussing THE ATOMIC CITY GIRLS by Janet Beard.

About the book:

In November 1944, eighteen-year-old June Walker boards an unmarked bus, destined for a city that doesn't officially exist.  Oak Ridge, Tennessee has sprung up in a matter of months - a town of trailers and segregated houses, 24-hour cafeterias, and constant security checks.  There, June joins hundreds of other young girls operating massive machines whose purpose is never explained.  They know they are helping to win the war, but must ask no questions and reveal nothing to outsiders.  When the bombing of Hiroshima brings the truth about Oak Ridge into devastating focus, June must confront her ideals about loyalty, patriotism, and war itself in this riveting novel of the everyday women who worked on the Manhattan Project during World War II.

Please join us!  Books are available at the Main Desk for the month before we meet.  New members are always welcome!

All About Sherlock

Sherlock Holmes novels and short stories have been in print for 126 plus years, but, that's only the beginning of the amazing Sherlockiana that Sherlock Holmes expert Robert Fritsch will introduce.

This is a fast-paced, interactive program and audience participation is welcomed.  Fun mini-quizzes will be interspersed throughout the program.  (Vote for your favorite Sherlock actor [Hint Hint: Jonny Lee Miller is the only correct answer!], test your knowledge of Sherlock trivia, and more!)  Attendees are encouraged to ask questions.

This month we will be discussing GREEN by Sam Graham-Felsen.

About the book:

Boston, 1992.  David Greenfeld is one of the few white kids at the Martin Luther King Middle School.  Unless he tests into the city's best public high school - which, if practice tests are any indication, isn't likely - he'll be friendless for the foreseeable future.  Nobody's more surprised than Dave when Marlon Wellings sticks up for him in the school cafeteria.  Mar's a loner from the public housing project on the corner of Dave's own gentrifying block, and he confound's Dave's assumption about black culture: He's nerdy and neurotic, a Celtics obsessive whose favorite player is the gawky, white Larry Bird.  Together, the two boys are able to resist the contradictory personas forced on them by the outside world.  But as Dave welcomes his new best friend into his world, he realizes how little he knows about Mar's.  Cracks gradually form in their relationship, and Dave starts to become aware of the breaks he's been given - and that Mar has not.

Please join us!  Books are available for the month before we meet.  New members are always welcome!  Be aware that this is our last meeting until September 2019.  Have a great summer!
