Poppy Project Drop In
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Nevins Library invites the community to help us make crocheted, knitted, and felt poppies for a large scale art project to remember those lost in World War I.  The final project will be on display in November, coninciding with the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War I. 

We are having drop in times all summer and through the fall where we provide the supplies and you provide the talent. 

If you prefer to help with the project at home or with your own crafty group, we will have patterns available!  Please drop off completed poppies to Sarah at the Main Desk at any time through November 1.

**Note:  If you would like to support the project, but do not have time to make poppies or do not enjoy crafts like this - we will be accepting donations of red and black yarn.  Also, you may donate $1 at the Main Desk and let us know the name of a Vet you'd like to honor.  We will include your Vet's name on a ribbon with the poppies in the final display.  Thank you!

This month we are discussing THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD by Colson Whitehead.

About the book:

Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia.  Life is hellish for all the slaves but especially bad for Cora; an outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is coming into womanhood - where even greater pain awaits.  When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape.  Matters do not go as planned and, though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted.

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

Thursday Evening Book Discussions
7:00 PM

This Month's Book Is: Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
This stylized novel of Tudor England follows the complex machinations and backroom dealings of Lord Thomas Cromwell, the pragmatic, accomplished and low-born power broker who served his king and country while dealing with deadly political intrigue, Henry VIII's tempestuous relationship with Anne Boleyn, and the religious upheavals of the Protestant Reformation.  The atmospheric television adaptation was very faithful to the book.

You may pick up books at the previous meeting, or you may get them at the Main Desk any time the Library is open. Please bring your library card to the meeting to check books out.

Author Event: Elin Hilderbrand
6:30 PM

Elin Hilderbrand is coming back once again! 

We are excited to welcome Elin HIlderbrand back to the Nevins Library where she will tell us all about her latest book - WINTER IN PARADISE.  This book kicks off a new series, set in the Caribbean. 

About this book:

Irene Steele shares her idyllic life in a beautiful Iowa City Victorian house with a husband who loves her to sky-writing, sentimental extremes. But as she rings in the new year one cold and snowy night, everything she thought she knew falls to pieces with a shocking phone call: her beloved husband, away on business, has been killed in a plane crash. Before Irene can even process the news, she must first confront the perplexing details of her husband’s death on the distant Caribbean island of St. John. After Irene and her sons arrive at this faraway paradise, they make yet another shocking discovery: her husband had been living a secret life. As Irene untangles a web of intrigue and deceit, and as she and her sons find themselves drawn into the vibrant island culture, they have to face the truth about their family, and about their own futures.

 

As anytime Elin comes to the Nevins, we are expecting a large crowd.  Please carpool if possible.

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

January's Title is March's Title is Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult

A black neonatal nurse is charged with causing the death of a white supremacist’s newborn baby. The story is told from the points of view of the nurse, her attorney, and the baby’s heartbroken father. As always, Picoult’s attention to legal, organizational, and medical details help the tale ring true. What sets this book apart, though, are the uncomfortable points it makes about racism. The novel is both absorbing and thought-provoking, and will surely spark conversations among friends, families and book clubs.

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

About the book:

In the aftermath of the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, an elderly widower and itinerant news reader, is offered fifty dollars to bring an orphan girl, who was kidnapped and raised by Kiowa raiders, from Witchita Falls back to her family in San Antonio.  Their 400-mile journey south through unsettled territory and unforgiving terrain proves difficult and at times dangerous.  Johanna has forgotten the English language, tries to escape at every opportunity, throws away her shoes, and refuses to act "civilized".  Yet, as the miles pass, the two lonely survivors tentatively begin to trust each other, forming a bond that marks the difference between life and death in this treacherous land.

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

Spring Series : Memory
Is memory what makes us human?  What happens when memories are taken away…or perhaps worse, when they are never made in the first place?  How reliable are memories, anyhow, can we trust people to recall events accurately?  And what is an “accurate” recollection…just our version?  This spring we will try to answer these questions and more as we explore a series of novels about memory

This is the suspenseful story of an amnesiac who, following a mysterious accident, cannot remember her past or form new memories, who desperately tries to uncover the truth about who she is – and who she can trust.

 

Book discussions are held at the Library on Thursday evenings 7-9pm. Books are available one month prior to the discussion.

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.

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.

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

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!

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

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!
