Evening Book Club

This month we'll be reading & discussing the 2024 Read Across Rhode Island book, Solito by Javier Zamora. Copies are available at the Circulation Desk. 

Trip. My parents started using that word about a year ago--"one day, you'll take a trip to be with us. Like an adventure."

Javier's adventure is a three-thousand-mile journey from his small town in El Salvador, through Guatemala and Mexico, and across the U.S. border. He will leave behind his beloved aunt and grandparents to reunite with a mother who left four years ago and a father he barely remembers. Traveling alone except for a group of strangers and a coyote hired to lead them to safety, Javier's trip is supposed to last two short weeks.

At nine years old, all Javier can imagine is rushing into his parents' arms, snuggling in bed between them, living under the same roof again. He does not see the perilous boat trips, relentless desert treks, pointed guns, arrests and deceptions that await him; nor can he know that those two weeks will expand into two life-altering months alongside a group of strangers who will come to encircle him like an unexpected family.

Waterfire: Celebrating 30 Years
In 1994, Barnaby Evans had a vision for an outdoor, interactive sculpture. WaterFire was created and installed on the 3 rivers of downtown Providence. For 30 years, it has been praised by RI residents and international visitors alike as a powerful work of art and a moving symbol of Providence's renaissance.  WaterFire's sparkling bonfires, the fragrant scent of aromatic wood smoke, the flickering firelight on the arched bridges, the silhouettes of the fire-tenders passing by the flames, the torch-lit vessels traveling down the river, and the enchanting music from around the world engage all of the senses and emotions of those who stroll the paths of Waterplace Park in Providence.
 
Join us on May 30 at 6:30 p.m. to help celebrate 30 years of WaterFire and to hear Barnaby Evans, an American artist who works globally in many media including sculpture, photography, film, garden design, architectural projects, writing and conceptual works, share his artistic journey. Registration required.

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Afternoon Book Club

This month we'll be reading & discussing Small Mercies by Dennis Lehane. Copies are available at the Circulation Desk. 

In the summer of 1974 a heatwave blankets Boston and Mary Pat Fennessy is trying to stay one step ahead of the bill collectors. Mary Pat has lived her entire life in the housing projects of “Southie,” the Irish American enclave that stubbornly adheres to old tradition and stands proudly apart.

One night Mary Pat’s teenage daughter Jules stays out late and doesn’t come home. That same evening, a young Black man is found dead, struck by a subway train under mysterious circumstances. The two events seem unconnected. But Mary Pat, propelled by a desperate search for her missing daughter, begins turning over stones best left untouched—asking questions that bother Marty Butler, chieftain of the Irish mob, and the men who work for him, men who don’t take kindly to any threat to their business.

Hurricane History of Southern RI

We are partnering with the Narragansett Historical Society for a presentation on our hurricane history. 

The lecture will focus on the historical record of hurricanes from 1635 until today as well as other recent studies of coastal sediments that have provided a longer perspective. The talk will include detailed weather data, actual reports of the events and personal accounts, where available. The main emphasis will be on the New England Hurricane of September 1938 and Hurricane Carol that struck on August 31 1954, the last major category 3 hurricanes to affect this area .With Narragansett and the coast of Rhode Island much more heavily built up now, what can this historical record and research on climate change tell us about the risk of recurrence?
 
A concurrent photo exhibit of the devastating impact from those storms will also be provided at the beginning of June.

Evening Book Club

This month we'll be reading & discussing Horse by Geraldine Brooks. Copies are available at the Circulation Desk. 

Kentucky, 1850. An enslaved groom named Jarret and a bay foal forge a bond of understanding that will carry the horse to record-setting victories across the South. When the nation erupts in civil war, an itinerant young artist who has made his name on paintings of the racehorse takes up arms for the Union. On a perilous night, he reunites with the stallion and his groom, very far from the glamor of any racetrack.

New York City, 1954. Martha Jackson, a gallery owner celebrated for taking risks on edgy contemporary painters, becomes obsessed with a nineteenth-century equestrian oil painting of mysterious provenance.

Washington, DC, 2019. Jess, a Smithsonian scientist from Australia, and Theo, a Nigerian-American art historian, find themselves unexpectedly connected through their shared interest in the horse--one studying the stallion's bones for clues to his power and endurance, the other uncovering the lost history of the unsung Black horsemen who were critical to his racing success.

Based on the remarkable true story of the record-breaking thoroughbred Lexington, Horse is a novel of art and science, love and obsession, and our unfinished reckoning with racism.

Pollinators - Know Them, Encourage Them, Protect Them

What's all the buzz about pollinators? Come learn about the different pollinators and why they are important.  Find out how you can attract and keep pollinators in your yard and finally, how to protect them from harm. This program is presented by Master Gardener Carol Horta.

Carol Horta is a retired sixth grade teacher who bought a house in Foster five years ago.  It wasn't until things started emerging from the ground in April that she realized the extent of the  gardens on the property.  She  joined her local garden club for help with all the unfamiliar plantings she found there.  She then decided to enroll in Master Gardener training through the University of Rhode Island. And between all that, she became inspired to become a bee-keeper.  That journey is what brings her here to discuss pollinators with you today!
