Author Event: Carla Neggers
1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Best-selling author Carla Neggers will be visiting the Nevins Library to talk about her new book, IMPOSTOR'S LURE, the latest in the popular series featuring FBI agents Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan.

About the book:

Newlyweds Emma and Colin are suspicious when prosecutor Tamara McDermott is a no-show at a Boston dinner party. Matt Yankowski, head of HIT, Emma and Colin's small, elite Boston-based team, is a friend of Tamara's, and he needs them to find her.  In London, a woman who was supposed to meet Emma's art-detective grandfather to talk about forgeries is discovered near death. Her husband, who stayed behind in Boston, has vanished. The couple's connection to Tamara adds to the puzzle.  As the search for Tamara intensifies, a seemingly unrelated murder leads Emma, Colin and HIT deep into a maze of misdirection created by a clever, lethal criminal who stays one step ahead of them.  As Emma draws on her expertise in art crimes and Colin on his experience as a deep-cover agent, the investigation takes a devastating turn that tests the strengths of their families and friendships as well as their FBI colleagues as never before. Impostor's Lure is full of clever twists that will keep readers guessing right to the stunning conclusion!

Carla is the author of more than 75 novels, which have been translated into dozens of languages and sold in over 35 countries.  Copies of this book and others will be available for purchase and signing.  Refreshments will be served.

October'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

November's Title is A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

There is something about Ove. At first sight, he is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He thinks himself surrounded by idiots - neighbors who can't reverse a trailer properly, joggers, shop assistants who talk in code, and the perpetrators of the vicious coup d’état that ousted him as Chairman of the Residents' Association. He will persist in making his daily inspection rounds of the local streets. But isn't it rare, these days, to find such old-fashioned clarity of belief and deed? Such unswerving conviction about what the world should be, and a lifelong dedication to making it just so?

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.

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.

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.

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 The Great Alone by Kristin Hannah

Leni and her troubled family embark on a new way of life in Alaska’s wilderness in 1974 – hoping this is finally the solution for her troubled, POW father. In Alaska, Leni and her family are tested and when change comes to their small community her father’s anger threatens to explode and divide the town. This is a beautifully written novel, descriptive and engaging with well-developed characters and a strong sense of place.

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!
