A poignant and inspirational love story set in Burma, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats spans the decades between the 1950s and the present. When a successful New York lawyer suddenly disappears without a trace, neither his wife nor his daughter Julia has any idea where he might be...until they find a love letter he wrote many years ago, to a Burmese woman they have never heard of. Intent on solving the mystery and coming to terms with her father's past, Julia decides to travel to the village where the woman lived. There she uncovers a tale of unimaginable hardship, resilience, and passion that will reaffirm the reader's belief in the power of love to move mountains. (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

Armenians of the Merrimack Valley Book Launch
Haverhill Public Library, Saturday, February 13 at 10:30am
Local authors release exciting new title featuring stunning, vintage images! Join us for a launch event complete with book signing, presentation and refreshments!
Telling a story in pictures is Armenians of the Merrimack Valley, the newest addition to Arcadia Publishing's popular Images of America series. The book by E. Philip Brown and Tom Vartabedian is set to release on February 8, 2016. The book boasts 200 vintage images and showcases memories of days gone by.
When one thinks of the Merrimack Valley, shoe shops and mills come to mind. For that reason, it was a hotbed for Armenian immigrants following World War I and the genocide that robbed Armenia of half its population, with some 1.5 million victims lost at the hands of the Ottoman Turkish Empire and another million people uprooted from their homes and scattered to a diaspora. Many of these refugees came to the Merrimack Valley—settling in the cities of Haverhill, Lawrence, and Lowell—to eke out a better life for themselves and their families. Aside from sweatshop labor, they sought work as barbers and mercenaries, business owners and handymen, going to night school for better English standards and keeping their rich heritage and culture intact with their churches and community centers. Despite the discrimination they faced with their "strange" names and lifestyles, the Armenians remained tenacious and resilient, contributing to the overall welfare of their new promised land.
