Middle Grade Book Club
Townsend Public Library, Friday, January 20 at 3:30pm
Join Miss Molly for this fun middle school book group!
This month we are reading Countdown by Deborah Wiles
About the book:
A time that changed the world.
A time that changed Franny's life.
Franny Chapman just wants some peace. But that's hard to get when her best friend is feuding with her, her sister has disappeared, and her uncle is fighting an old war in his head. Her saintly younger brother is no help, and the cute boy across the street only complicates things. Worst of all, everyone is walking around just waiting for a bomb to fall.
It's 1962, and it seems that the whole country is living in fear. When President Kennedy goes on television to say that Russia is sending nuclear missiles to Cuba, it only gets worse. Franny doesn't know how to deal with what's going on in the world — no more than she knows how to deal with what's going on with her family and friends. But somehow she's got to make it through.
Countdown features a captivating story interspersed with footage from 1962. Deborah Wiles has created a documentary novel that will put you right alongside Franny as she navigates a dangerous time in both her history and our history.

Sunday Brunch Book Group - Read Across Europe
Townsend Public Library, Sunday, January 22 at 1:30pm
Read Across Europe Book Discussion Group
Join us on Sunday afternnoons this winter - we will have coffee tea and light snacks as we discuss a book written by a popular European author.
This month's pick will be "The Yellow Eyes of the Crocodile" by French Author Katherine Pancol.

Le Divorce meets The Elegance of the Hedgehog in this hilariously entertaining mega-bestseller from France
When her chronically unemployed husband runs off to start a crocodile farm in Kenya with his mistress, Josphine Cortès is left in an unhappy state of affairs. The mother of two—confident, beautiful teenage Hortense and shy, babyish Zoé—is forced to maintain a stable family life while making ends meet on her meager salary as a medieval history scholar. Meanwhile, Joséphine's charismatic sister Iris seems to have it all—a wealthy husband, gorgeous looks, and a très chic Paris address—but she dreams of bringing meaning back into her life. When Iris charms a famous publisher into offering her a lucrative deal for a twelfth-century romance, she offers her sister a deal of her own: Joséphine will write the novel and pocket all the proceeds, but the book will be published under Iris's name. All is well—that is, until the book becomes the literary sensation of the season. (less)
For the month of February, we will be reading "My Brilliant Friend" by Italian author Elena Ferrante.
For the month of March, we will be reading "Dear Mr. M" by Dutch author Herman Koch. (added from Eventkeeper)

Leigh Gilmore presents "Tainted Witness"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, January 29 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, January 29 at 3pm, when Leigh Gilmore presents her new book, "Tainted Witness."

In 1991, Anita Hill brought testimony and scandal into America's living rooms during televised Senate confirmation hearings in which she detailed the sexual harassment she had suffered at the hands of Clarence Thomas. The male Senate Judiciary Committee refused to take Hill seriously, and the veracity of Hill's claims were sullied in the mainstream media. Hill was defamed as "a little bit nutty and a little bit slutty," and Thomas was confirmed. The tainting of Hill and her testimony are part of a larger social history in which women find themselves caught up in a system that refuses to believe what they say. The Anita Hill case shows how a tainted witness is not who someone is, but what someone can become.

Tainted Witness elucidates how persistent and pernicious patterns of doubt attach to women who bring forward accounts of sexual and racial violence. Reactions to Anita Hill's testimony as well as Rigoberta Menchú's account of genocide in Guatemala, contemporary memoirs that chronicle experiences of gendered and racialized violence, and news stories like Nafissatou Diallo's claim that Dominique Strauss-Kahn raped her, demonstrate the reflexive processes of judgment that discredit women's complex accounts of harm, both in legal courts and courts of public opinion. The accelerated tempo of scandal is crucial to tainting women witnesses. The rush to judgment encourages framing testimonial conflicts in terms of who is telling the truth and who is lying, with the presumption that this is an adequate and meaningful testimonial test. Such a framing, however, prevents witnesses from providing adequate context for their testimony and especially elides histories of slavery and colonialism. Leigh Gilmore examines what happens when women's testimony is discredited, but also traces the circulation of testimony beyond the frame of scandal and its capacity to bear witness anew.

Leigh Gilmore is Distinguished Visiting Professor in Women's and Gender Studies at Wellesley College. She is the author of The Limits of Autobiography: Trauma and Testimony and Autobiographics: A Feminist Theory of Women's Self-Representation and coeditor of Autobiography and Postmodernism.
