Author Event: Ted Reinstein

Ted Reinstein is coming back to the Nevins Library!

He'll be talking about his new book Wicked Pissed:

From sports to politics, food to finance, aviation to engineering, to bitter disputes over simple boundaries themselves, New England’s feuds have peppered the region’s life for centuries. They’ve been raw and rowdy, sometimes high minded and humorous, and in a place renowned for its deep sense of history, often long-running and legendary. There are even some that will undoubtedly outlast the region’s ancient low stone walls.

Bringing to life many of the fights, spats, and arguments that have, in many ways, shaped the area itself, Reinstein demonstrates what it really means to be Wicked Pissed.

It came out on April 1st (seriously!) and copies will be available for purchase at the event.

Wednesday Afternoon Book Group

Join us for the first Book Group Meeting of the year! At this meeting we will all take a couple minutes to introduce a favorite book we read this summer, as well as discuss Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt.

In this striking literary debut, Carol Rifka Brunt unfolds a moving story of love, grief, and renewal as two lonely people become the unlikeliest of friends and find that sometimes you don’t know you’ve lost someone until you’ve found them. There’s only one person who has ever truly understood fourteen-year-old June Elbus, and that’s her uncle, the renowned painter Finn Weiss. Shy at school and distant from her older sister, June can only be herself in Finn’s company; he is her godfather, confidant, and best friend. So when he dies, far too young, of a mysterious illness her mother can barely speak about, June’s world is turned upside down. But Finn’s death brings a surprise acquaintance into June’s life - someone who will help her to heal and to question what she thinks she knows about Finn, her family, and even her own heart.

Copies of this book are available at the Main Desk!

Teen Book Babble

Every month teens in grades 7-12 are invited to join us as we chat about a selected book over pizza. New members always welcomed!

This month we will be discussing This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers.

"It's the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won't stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn't sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she's failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she's forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, the motivations for survival change in startling ways and soon the group's fate is determined less and less by what's happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life?and death?inside. When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?"

Author Event: Jacqueline Mitchard

We are so excited to have New York Times Bestselling Author Jacqueline Mitchard visit the Nevins Library!

She will be here to talk about her latest novel, TWO IF BY SEA: Just hours after his wife and her entire family perish in the Christmas Eve tsunami in Brisbane, American expat and former police officer Frank Mercy goes out to join his volunteer rescue unit and pulls a little boy from a submerged car, saving the child's life with only seconds to spare. In that moment, Frank's own life is transformed. Not quite knowing why, Frank sidesteps the law, when, instead of turning Ian over to the Red Cross, he takes the boy home to the Midwestern farm where he grew up. Not long into their journey, Frank begins to believe that Ian has an extraordinary, impossible telepathic gift; but his only wish is to protect the deeply frightened child. As Frank struggles to start over, training horses as his father and grandfather did before him, he meets Claudia, a champion equestrian and someone with whom he can share his life and his fears for Ian. Both of them know that it will be impossible to keep Ian's gift a secret forever. Already, ominous coincidences have put Frank's police instincts on high alert, as strangers trespass the quiet life at the family farm" Mitchard is also known for her debut novel, THE DEEP END OF THE OCEAN which was not only a best seller, but was Oprah's choice for the first book in her infamous "Oprah's Book Club". The book was also made into a movie starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Treat Williams. Copies of Ms. Mitchard's books will be available for purchase.
