Northeast MA Readers' Advisory Round Table [Danvers]
Peabody Institute Library - Danvers, Tuesday, March 28 at 10:45am
The Northeastern Readers' Advisory Round Table's Nonfiction History Arc: Microhistories
Benchmark: Everyone Reads Mark Kurlansky's Salt: A World History.
This is the second of a three-meeting arc covering Historical Nonfiction. In January 2017 we talked about Defining Times, and in May 2017 we will discuss Specific Settings. The list of books and the notes on what we learned in our discussions can be found on our blog. Because we cancelled our January meeting, please come prepared to discuss the Benchmark for Defining Times: Stephen Johnson's The Ghost Map. Please post your second Defining Times books to the blog. We may not have time to share all of the second titles of both categories at this meeting.
Please read a 2nd title in the Nonfiction History Arc: Microhistories--look on the RA RT blog: for a list of suggested titles and some supporting materials.
Appeal to be read for March meeting: Focus on all the appeal factors, but really think about setting, pace, and tone.
Meeting every other month, the NE RA RT reads from one genre--and then discusses the appeal of that genre with each other emphasizing the building of a skill set of appeal categories and familiarity of genre particulars. They cover a different genre every meeting, allowing each of the participants to be introduced to the discipline of reading for appeal, as well as an initiation to broad genre categories. Everyone participating will be able to share analysis of titles and authors in unfamiliar genres that will stretch their capicity as readers' advisors.  The discussion leaders are Leane Ellis (ellis@noblenet.org) and Nanci Milone Hill (nhill@mvlc.org).

Adult Science Fiction/Fantasy Book Club
Hazen Memorial Library, Thursday, March 30 at 7pm
The Hazen Memorial Library is hosting a book club for adults who are interested in reading and discussing Science Fiction and Fantasy literature. The next meeting is on Thursday, March 30th at 6:00pm to discuss David Mitchell’s novel Slade House.
Down the road from a working-class British pub, along the brick wall of a narrow alley, if the conditions are exactly right, you’ll find the entrance to Slade House. A stranger will greet you by name and invite you inside. At first, you won’t want to leave. Later, you’ll find that you can’t. Every nine years, the house’s residents—an odd brother and sister—extend a unique invitation to someone who’s different or lonely: a precocious teenager, a recently divorced policeman, a shy college student. But what really goes on inside Slade House? For those who find out, it’s already too late. . . .
Spanning five decades, from the last days of the 1970s to the present, leaping genres, and barreling toward an astonishing conclusion, this intricately woven novel will pull you into a reality-warping new vision of the haunted house story—as only David Mitchell could imagine it.
Refreshments will be provided and new members always welcome!
Please call 978-425-2620 or visit the Hazen Memorial Library to order your copy of the book.

Free author event with Cass Sunstein and "#republic: Divided Democracy in the Age of Social Media"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, April 2 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, April 2 at 3pm, when Cass Sunstein presents his new work, "#Republic: Divided Democracy in the Age of Social Media." This is a free event; there will be time after the presentation for Q&A and book signing.

Cass R. Sunstein is the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard Law School. His many books include the New York Times bestsellers "Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness" (with Richard H. Thaler) and "The World According to Star Wars." He lives in Massachusetts.

As the Internet grows more sophisticated, it is creating new threats to democracy. Social media companies such as Facebook can sort us ever more efficiently into groups of the like-minded, creating echo chambers that amplify our views. It's no accident that on some occasions, people of different political views cannot even understand each other. It's also no surprise that terrorist groups have been able to exploit social media to deadly effect.

Welcome to the age of #Republic.

In this revealing book, Cass Sunstein shows how today's Internet is driving political fragmentation, polarization, and even extremism--and what can be done about it.

Thoroughly rethinking the critical relationship between democracy and the Internet, Sunstein describes how the online world creates "cybercascades," exploits "confirmation bias," and assists "polarization entrepreneurs." And he explains why online fragmentation endangers the shared conversations, experiences, and understandings that are the lifeblood of democracy.

In response, Sunstein proposes practical and legal changes to make the Internet friendlier to democratic deliberation. These changes would get us out of our information cocoons by increasing the frequency of unchosen, unplanned encounters and exposing us to people, places, things, and ideas that we would never have picked for our Twitter feed.

#Republic need not be an ironic term. As Sunstein shows, it can be a rallying cry for the kind of democracy that citizens of diverse societies most need. (TooFondOfBooks)
