Our selection this month is Lab Girl by Hope Jahren.

 

Jahren, a professor of geobiology at the University of Hawaii, recounts her unfolding journey to discover "what it's like to be a plant" in this darkly humorous, emotionally raw, and exquisitely crafted memoir. In clever prose, Jahren distills what it means to be one of those researchers who "love their calling to excess." She describes the joy of working alone at night, the "multidimensional glory" of a manic episode, scavenging jury-rigged equipment from a retiring colleague, or spontaneously road-tripping with students to a roadside monkey preserve. She likens elements of her scientific career to a plant world driven by need and instinct, comparing the academic grant cycle to the resource management of a deciduous tree and the experience of setting up her first—desperately underfunded—basement lab to ambitious vines that grow quickly wherever they can. But the most extraordinary and delightful element of her narrative is her partnership with Bill, a taciturn student who becomes both her lab partner and her sarcastic, caring best friend. It's a rare portrait of a deep relationship in which the mutual esteem of the participants is unmarred by sexual tension. For Jahren, a life in science yields the gratification of asking, knowing, and telling; for the reader, the joy is in hearing about the process as much as the results. (Apr. Publishers Weekly)

Memorize Best: The Art of Remembering Anything with memory expert Neil Kutzen.

Make better first impressions.

* Avoid embarrassment.

* Make better business and social connections

How the Method Works

You learn how to turn every name into a picture which you see when you look at the person’s face. The picture reminds you of the name after the face has reminded you of the picture. It’s like a puzzle game you can get really good at.

Join playwright Michael Cormier as he explains the setting behind his new play, Saltonstall: One Man’s Stand Against the Salem Witch Trials.

Saltonstall: One Man’s Stand Against the Salem Witch Trials

Salem, 1692: Fear grips the community as accusations of witchcraft spread like wildfire. Only one judge, Nathaniel Saltonstall of Haverhill, will have the courage to stand for truth before scores of innocent victims are sent to their deaths. Based on the true story, Saltonstall recounts how this remarkable man stood alone for the accused, despite the risks to himself and his family.

At ifarm, Michael will explain the real (often misunderstood) history of the Salem Witch Trials, while setting the scene for the play’s hero, Nathaniel Saltonstall. He will also explain the ways that the town of Boxford and John Towne, the founder of the Towne Farm (today ifarm LLC), were intimately connected with the witch trials!

This program is brought to you by the iFarm and the Library and will be held at the iFarm Carriage House, 55 Towne Road, Boxford. Registration is appreciated.

folklore.

    Contact: Beth Safford   9788877323   esafford@boxfordlibrary.org
   

 

Join Cheryl Suchors, author of 48 Peaks: Hiking and Healing in the White Mountains, an inspiring story of adventure and persistence.

Floundering in her second career, the one she’s always wanted, forty-eight year old Cheryl Suchors resolves that, despite a fear of heights, her mid-life success depends on hiking the highest of the grueling White Mountains in New Hampshire. All forty-eight of them. She endures injuries, novice mistakes, and the heartbreaking loss of a best friend. When breast cancer threatens her own life, she seeks solace and recovery in the wild. Her quest takes ten years. Regardless of the need since childhood to feel successful and in control, climbing teaches her mastery isn’t enough and control is often an illusion.

Connecting with friends and with nature, Suchors redefines success: she discovers a source of spiritual nourishment, spaces powerful enough to absorb her grief, and joy in the persistence of love and beauty. 48 Peaks inspires us to believe that, no matter what obstacles we face, we too can attain our summits.

Eunice: The Kennedy Who Changed the World

Join Pulitzer-winnning journalist  Eileen McNamara as she examines the life and times of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, arguing she left behind the Kennedy family’s most profound political legacy.

Granted access to never-before-seen private papers—from the scrapbooks Eunice kept as a schoolgirl in prewar London to her thoughts on motherhood and feminism—McNamara paints a vivid portrait of a woman both ahead of her time and out of step with it: the visionary founder of the Special Olympics, a devout Catholic in a secular age, and a formidable woman whose impact on American society was longer lasting than that of any of the Kennedy men.

Welcome to the Wednesday Evening Book Discussion! No registration is necessary and everyone is welcome. Copies of the book to be discussed will be available at the Circulation Desk one month before our meeting.

Our selection this month is Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult.

 

 

A woman and her husband admitted to a hospital to have a baby requests that their nurse be reassigned - they are white supremacists and don't want Ruth, who is black, to touch their baby. The hospital complies, but the baby later goes into cardiac distress when Ruth is on duty. She hesitates before rushing in to perform CPR. When her indecision ends in tragedy, Ruth finds herself on trial, represented by a white public defender who warns against bringing race into a courtroom. As the two come to develop a truer understanding of each other's lives, they begin to doubt the beliefs they each hold most dear.

Welcome to the Wednesday Evening Book Discussion! No registration is necessary and everyone is welcome. Copies of the book to be discussed will be available at the Circulation Desk one month before our meeting.

Our selection this month is The Book That Matters Most by Ann Hood.

 

 

An enthralling novel about love, loss, secrets, friendship, and the healing power of literature, by the bestselling author of The Knitting Circle.

Ava’s twenty-five-year marriage has fallen apart, and her two grown children are pursuing their own lives outside of the country. Ava joins a book group, not only for her love of reading but also out of sheer desperation for companionship. The group’s goal throughout the year is for each member to present the book that matters most to them. Ava rediscovers a mysterious book from her childhood?one that helped her through the traumas of the untimely deaths of her sister and mother. Alternating with Ava’s story is that of her troubled daughter Maggie, who, living in Paris, descends into a destructive relationship with an older man. Ava’s mission to find that book and its enigmatic author takes her on a quest that unravels the secrets of her past and offers her and Maggie the chance to remake their lives.

Welcome to the Wednesday Evening Book Discussion! No registration is necessary and everyone is welcome. Copies of the book to be discussed will be available at the Circulation Desk one month before our meeting.

Our selection this month is My Father's Tears and Other Stories by John Updike.

 

“Drinking a toast to the visible world, his impending disappearance from it be damned.” That’s how John Updike describes one of his elderly protagonists in this, his final collection of short stories. He might have been writing about himself. In My Father’s Tears, the author revisits his signature characters, places, and themes—Americans in suburbs, cities, and small towns grappling with faith and infidelity—in a gallery of portraits of his aging generation, men and women for whom making peace with the past is now paramount. The Seattle Times called My Father’s Tears “a haunting collection” that “echoes the melancholy of Chekhov, the romanticism of Wordsworth and the mournful spirit of Yeats.”

Welcome to the Wednesday Evening Book Discussion! No registration is necessary and everyone is welcome. Copies of the book to be discussed will be available at the Circulation Desk one month before our meeting.

Our selection this month is The Chilbury Ladies' Choir by Jennifer Ryan.

 

As England becomes enmeshed in the early days of World War II and the men are away fighting, the women of Chilbury village forge an uncommon bond. They defy the Vicar’s stuffy edict to close the choir and instead “carry on singing,” resurrecting themselves as the Chilbury Ladies’ Choir. We come to know the home-front struggles of five unforgettable choir members: a timid widow devastated when her only son goes to fight; the older daughter of a local scion drawn to a mysterious artist; her younger sister pining over an impossible crush; a Jewish refugee from Czechoslovakia hiding a family secret; and a conniving midwife plotting to outrun her seedy past. 
 
An enchanting ensemble story that shuttles from village intrigue to romance to the heartbreaking matters of life and death, Jennifer Ryan’s debut novel thrillingly illuminates the true strength of the women on the home front in a village of indomitable spirit.

Our selection this month is Lucky Boy by Shanthi Sekaran.

NAMED A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR BY NPR, THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, AND LIBRARY JOURNAL

 

In this astonishing novel, Shanthi Sekaran gives voice to the devotion and anguish of motherhood through two women bound together by their love for one boy. Soli, a young undocumented Mexican woman in Berkeley, CA, finds that motherhood offers her an identity in a world where she's otherwise invisible. When she is placed in immigrant detention, her son comes under the care of Kavya, an Indian-American wife overwhelmed by her own impossible desire to have a child. As Soli fights for her son, Kavya builds her love on a fault line, her heart wrapped around someone else's child. Exploring the ways in which dreams and determination can reshape a family, Sekaran transforms real life into a thing of beauty. From rural Oaxaca to Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto to the dreamscapes of Silicon Valley, Lucky Boy offers a moving and revelatory look at the evolving landscape of the American dream and the ever-changing borders of love.
