Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.

Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.

Myths of Language Development: A Talk With Suzanne Ducharme
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Do you ever wonder if boys really do talk later than girls? Or if it’s confusing to speak two languages to a child? Are you unsure what to expect from your child's early language development? Suzanne Ducharme will be here to explain and debunk common myths about language development and acquisition, 
and to answer your questions in this talk geared to parents, caregivers, and early childhood professionals. 

Pre-registration encouraged but walk-ins welcome---doors will open for this free program at 10:45 am. Crafts and puzzles will be available for children accompanying their parents in the room next door to the presentation. This program has a snow date of Saturday, January 26th at 11 am. 

There will be the chance to ask questions (and to buy Suzanne's book, if interested) after the talk. 

About the Presenter: 
Suzanne’s passion-- her Life Work, is to help children with special needs and their families. Suzanne’s primary training is as a pediatric Speech Language Pathologist. Nearly 25 years of experience in a variety of settings has given Suzanne the opportunity to develop and refine advanced clinical skills in treating children with a range of complex medical and developmental challenges. In 2001, Suzanne opened her private practice, which is now located in Norwell, MA. Since 2007, Suzanne has been offering traditional speech pathology services combined with Craniosacral Therapy and Reiki, which has led to the development of an approach called holistic speech pathology. This innovative approach looks at the whole child, and considers their communication or feeding issues through the lens of their family, and their journey to reach their highest potential. You can find out more info about Suzanne and her work at at www.Suzanne-Ducharme.com.

Yeongdo, Korea 1911. In a small fishing village on the banks of the East Sea, a club-footed, cleft-lipped man marries a fifteen-year-old girl. The couple have one child, their beloved daughter Sunja. When Sunja falls pregnant by a married yakuza, the family face ruin. But then Isak, a Christian minister, offers her a chance of salvation: a new life in Japan as his wife.

Following a man she barely knows to a hostile country in which she has no friends, no home, and whose language she cannot speak, Sunja’s salvation is just the beginning of her story.

Through eight decades and four generations, Pachinko is an epic tale of family, identity, love, death and survival.

The Red Garden by Alice Hoffman

The Red Garden introduces us to the luminous and haunting world of Blackwell, Massachusetts, capturing the unexpected turns in its history and in our own lives. 

In exquisite prose, Hoffman offers a transforming glimpse of small-town America, presenting us with some three hundred years of passion, dark secrets, loyalty, and redemption in a web of tales where characters' lives are intertwined by fate and by their own actions.  From the town's founder, a brave young woman from England who has no fear of blizzards or bears, to the young man who runs away to New York City with only his dog for company, the characters in The Red Garden are extraordinary and vivid: a young wounded Civil War soldier who is saved by a passionate neighbor, a woman who meets a fiercely human historical character, a poet who falls in love with a blind man, a mysterious traveler who comes to town in the year when summer never arrives.

Please join us Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 7 p.m. We will be discussing Bastard out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison

                                                                                     

 

Allison's remarkable country voice emerges in a first novel spiked with pungent characters ranging from the slatternly to the grotesque, and saturated with sense of place--Greenville, S.C. Ruth Anne Boatwright, 13, got the nickname Bone at birth, when she was tiny as a knucklebone, and the tag acquires painful derivatives, like ``Bonehead.'' While her mother, Annie, a waitress, tries vainly to get the word ``illegitimate'' scrubbed from Bone's birth certificate, her tobacco-spitting granny reminds her she's a bastard. The identity of her real father, whom granny drove away, is kept from her. Surrounded by loving aunts and uncles, Bone still endures ridicule (she's homely, she has no voice for gospel singing) and--from vicious Daddy Glen, her mother's new husband--beatings and sexual abuse. Bone takes refuge in petty crime, like breaking into Woolworth's, and finds her truest friend in unmarried Aunt Raylene, who once had a great love for another woman. Annie gently defends Daddy Glen, blaming her daughter, until the tale's inevitably brutal climax. Mental and physical cruelty to women forms a main theme, illuminated by the subplot of pathetic albino Shannon Pearls, her story rife with Southern gothic overtones. Allison, author of the well-received short story collection Trash , doesn't condescend to her ``white trash'' characters; she portrays them with understanding and love.

Do you like to write stories? Have you ever wanted to write the script for a comic book or a movie? Come meet with other young writers at the Young Authors Club! We will be meeting on the second Thursday of every month from 4:30 to 5:30 pm to play writing games, learn tips and tricks, and work on writing projects together! The club will be putting out its own literary magazine, so all members will have the opportunity to see their work in a library literary publication.

For children in grades 4-6. Registration IS now required.
