Book Discussion -The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson
Townsend Public Library, Wednesday, September 2 at 8:30pm
From the New York Times bestselling author of "Men who Stare at Goats"
They say one out of every hundred people is a psychopath. You probably passed one on the street today. These are people who have no empathy, who are manipulative, deceitful, charming, seductive, and delusional. The Psychopath Test is the New York Times bestselling exploration of their world and the madness industry.
Join Stacy and Molly for a lively discussion of this fascinating book.

Create the life you want through setting goals, positive thinking and purposeful journaling. This group explores the latest scientific discoveries about the brain and how it works, emotional well-being, and health as well as ancient philosophies about the nature of consciousness and the human experience. Self reflection and journal work enhance the group discussions. This month we will be embarking on a journey of self-discovery which will continue through the year 2015. A journey or quest can be a metaphor for life. As we begin this new year filled with possibilities, we will get to know the key elements of a successful and inspiring venture.
This month we will be working with ideas from the books: "Find Happiness Now" by Jonathan Robinson and "Memories of the Afterlife" edited by Dr. Michael Newton.

Jon Palfreman presents "Brain Storms" The Race to Unlock the Mysteries of Parkinson's Disease"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, September 17 at 7pm
The race is on to discover a means to stop or reverse neurodegenerative conditions like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. "Brain Storms" is the long-overdue, riveting detective story of that race, and a passionate, insightful account into the lives of those affected.

Seven million people worldwide suffer from Parkinson's - with sixty thousand new cases diagnosed each year in the U.S. alone - and it remains an enigma, with doctors, researchers, and patients hunting for a cure. In Brain Storms, award-winning journalist Jon Palfreman tells their story, a story that takes on urgency when he is diagnosed with the debilitating illness.

Palfreman chronicles how scientists have labored to crack the mystery of what was once called "the shaking palsy," from the earliest clinical descriptions to the cutting edge of molecular neuroscience. He charts the victories and setbacks of a massive international effort to best the disease, referred to as one of the best windows into the brain itself.

"Brain Storms" is also a profoundly personal investigation into Palfreman's own struggles and those of others living with Parkinson's. From a professional ballet dancer who "tricks" her body to move freely again, to a "frozen" patient who cannot walk but astounds doctors when he is able to ride a bicycle, Palfreman shines a light on the varied and ingenious ways patients cope with having their bodies steadily taken away from them.

Matthew Dicks presents "The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, October 1 at 7pm
Please join us on Thursday, October 1 at 7pm, when author Matthew Dicks visits the Bookshop to read from and sign his newest novel, The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs.

Caroline Jacobs is a wimp. She specializes in the suffering of tiny indignities in silence. And some of the big ones, too. But when this engaging novel opens, Caroline has asserted herself with the twinset wearing president of the PTO. With a four-letter word, no less.

Caroline's outburst awakened something in her. Not just gumption, but a realization that the roots of her tirade could be traced back to something that happened to her as a teenager, when her best friend Emily very publicly betrayed her. So, with a little bit of bravery, Caroline decides to go back to her home town and tell off her childhood friend. She busts her daughter out of school, and the two set off to deliver the perfect comeback . . . some twenty-five years later. But nothing goes as planned. Long buried secrets rise to the surface. And Caroline will have to face much more than one old, bad best friend.

THE PERFECT COMEBACK OF CAROLINE JACOBS is about a woman looking to fix her life through an act of bravery (or perhaps lunacy). It's also the story of mother and daughter learning to understand one another. This engaging, quirky, voice-driven novel is perfect for those of us who were last to be picked at sports, for the woman who was bullied by the mean girl, and for everyone who is thrilled not to be in high school any more.

Matthew Dicks is a writer and elementary school teacher. He has been published in the Hartford Courant, featured at the Books on the Nightstand retreat, and is a Moth StorySLAM champion. He is the author of three previous novels, Something Missing, Unexpectedly Milo, and Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend, an international bestseller. His novels have been translated into more than 25 languages. Dicks lives in Newington, Connecticut, with his wife, Elysha, and their two children. (TooFondOfBooks)
