The Dinner: Weds. Night Bookclub
Hamilton-Wenham Public Library, Wednesday, August 3 at 8pm
The Dinner by Herman Koch. Fiction, 2009. An internationally bestselling phenomenon: the darkly suspenseful, highly controversial tale of two families struggling to make the hardest decision of their lives—all over the course of one meal. Behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened. As civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple show just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love. Skewering everything from parenting values to pretentious menus to political convictions, this novel reveals the dark side of genteel society and asks what each of us would do in the face of unimaginable tragedy. -Amazon, edited. Available in hardcover, large print, CD, MP3 CD, and ebook (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

This month's Night Readers selection will be The Boys in the Boat : the true story of an American team's epic journey to win gold at the 1936 Olympics by Daniel James Brown, adapted for children by Gregory More. "Out of the depths of the Great Depression comes the astonishing tale of nine working-class boys from the American West who at the 1936 Olympics showed the world what true grit really meant. With rowers who were the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington's eight-oar crew was never expected to defeat the elite East Coast teams, yet they did, going on to shock the world by challenging the German boat rowing for Adolf Hitler. At the center of the tale is Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, whose personal quest captures the spirit of his generation—the generation that would prove in the coming years that the Nazis could not prevail over American determination and optimism."

Josh Funk presents the storytime launch event for "Dear Dragon: A Pen Pal Tale"
The Concord Bookshop, Saturday, September 10 at 11am
Please join us on Saturday, September 10 at 11am for a very special children's book launch event. Josh Funk will be here to read his hot-off-the-presses new picture book, Dear Dragon!

A clever picture book in verse about looking past external differences to make friends with the person (or dragon) underneath.

George’s and Blaise’s teachers assign them to be pen pals. Through letters back and forth about their families, hobbies, and pets, they find that they have a lot in common. But what the reader knows—and they do not—is that one of them is a little boy, and one of them is a little dragon! What will happen when these two friends finally meet face-to-face?

Josh Funk lives in Concord with his wife and children and works as a computer programmer. He is a board member of The Writers’ Loft in Sherborn, MA, and the co-coordinator of the 2016 and 2017 New England Regional SCBWI Conferences. He’s the author of Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast and Pirasaurs!, and more. (TooFondOfBooks)
