Wednesday Evening Book Discussion

Welcome to the Wednesday Evening Book Discussion! No registration is necessary and everyone is welcome. This is our last meeting before we take a a break over the summer. Copies of the book to be discussed will be available at the Circulation Desk one month before our meeting.

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.

In the Shadow of Salem

Based on extensive primary source research, In the Shadow of Salem: The Andover Witch Hunt of 1692, by historian and archivist Richard Hite, tells for the first time the fascinating story of this long overlooked phase of the largest witch hunt in American history. Untangling a net of rivalries and ties between families and neighbors, the author explains the actions of the accusers, the reactions of the accused, and their ultimate fates. In the process, he shows how the Andover arrests prompted a large segment of the town’s population to openly oppose the entire witch hunt and how their actions played a crucial role in finally bringing the 1692 witchcraft crisis to a close.

 RICHARD HITE is State Records Coordinator at the Rhode Island State Archives and Public Records Administration. He has a B.A. in history and political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an M.A. in Archival Management from North Carolina State University, and an M.A. in history from Kent State University. He is author of An Ordinary Soldier: Christopher Hite of Bedford, Pennsylvania and the Continental Army and Sustainable Genealogy: Separating Fact from Fiction in Family Legends. He lives in Providence, Rhode Island.

Summer Reading Party for Kids

Kids who participated in our 2019 Summer Reading Program "A Universe of Stories" are invited to turn in their reading clock sheets and join us for Keith Michael Johnson's highly entertaining show, "Science Is Not Always Pretty." Among other things, we'll chemically conjure a batch of slime (solid or liquid?), and break the sound barrier with an everyday machine that travels over 900 miles an hour. Plus, after the show there will be ice cream from Benson's! The show is sponsored in part by a grant from the Boxford Cultural Council. You may sign up for this event on or after July 23.
