Nina Sankovitch presents a free author event with "The Lowells of Massachusetts: An American Family"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, May 7 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, May 7 at 3pm, when Nina Sankovitch presents her new biography, "The Lowells of Massachusetts," a fascinating chronicle of one of the most powerful families in the United States during the country’s early years.

The Lowells of Massachusetts were a remarkable family. They were settlers in the New World in the 1600s, revolutionaries creating a new nation in the 1700s, merchants and manufacturers building prosperity in the 1800s, and scientists and artists flourishing in the 1900s. For the first time, Nina Sankovitch tells the story of this fascinating and powerful dynasty in "The Lowells of Massachusetts."

Though not without scoundrels and certainly no strangers to controversy. The Lowells realized the promise of America as the land of opportunity by uniting Puritan values of hard work, community service, and individual responsibility with a deep-seated optimism that became a well-known family trait. Long before the Kennedys put their stamp on Massachusetts, the Lowells claimed the bedrock.

Nina Sankovitch is the author of "Tolstoy and the Purple Chair" and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Celebrating the Joys of Letter Writing." She was born in Evanston, Illinois and is a graduate Tufts University and Harvard Law School. She lives with her family in Connecticut.

This is a free author talk, Q&A, and book signing -- join us! (TooFondOfBooks)

Where the Roads All End: The Marshall Family’s Kalahari Photography
Geological Lecture Hall, Wednesday, May 10 at 6pm
The Marshall family, which filmed and studied the Ju/’hoansi of the Kalahari Desert, created one of the most significant visual anthropology projects of the twentieth century. Sponsored by the Peabody Museum, the Marshalls made eight trips to Namibia (then South West Africa) in the 1950s to document some of the world’s last surviving self-sufficient hunter-gatherers, the Ju/’hoansi and G/wi people (earlier known pejoratively as “Bushmen” and later as the !Kung and the San). Using the Marshall family’s collection of stereo views taken with a Stereo Realist camera, Ilisa Barbash will discuss the Marshalls’ archive of over 40,000 photographs, the subject of the new book, Where the Roads All End: Anthropology and Photography in the Kalahari (Peabody Museum Press). The lecture will be followed by a reception and book signing. Books will be available for purchase at the event, at the front desk of the Peabody Museum, and from Harvard University Press.

Clyde Farnsworth presents "Tangled Bylines: A Father and Son Cover the Twentieth Century"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, May 11 at 7pm
Please join us on Thursday, May 11 at 7pm, when Clyde Farnsworth presents his new book, "Tangled Bylines: A Father and Son Cover the Twentieth Century."

This is a free event. There will be time after the author talk for Q&A and book signing.

This memoir of father and son journalists--both named Clyde Farnsworth--draws on the unfinished autobiography of the author's father. Largely biographical, this book can be read as a panoramic history of American newspaper journalism in the twentieth-century, covering Prohibition gangs, prison fires, and botched executions in the 1920s and 1930s, to global war, the shaping of postwar Europe and Asia, and America's emergence from the Cold War. Tangled Bylines includes off-beat encounters with Amelia Earhart, Douglas MacArthur, Charles de Gaulle, Winston Churchill, and Simon Wiesenthal.

Clyde Henri Farnsworth was born in Cleveland in 1931, and joined the US Army after graduating from Yale. He served in Korea as a combat medic and later ran the 179th Infantry regimental newspaper. His was award the Bronze Star for Meritorious Service. He and fellow soldiers from the 45th Division were selected to march in a New York City ticker tape parade at war's end.

Upon his discharge, he walked into UP at 3rd Avenue and 42nd Street in New York to land his first paying news job.

He then worked as an American journalist for more than four decades, writing for United Press International, The New York Herald Tribune and The New York Times. For the Times he was a foreign correspondent based in Europe, Canada and Australia. In 1968 he won the E. W. Fairchild Award of the Overseas Press Club of America for Best Business News Reporting from Abroad. In 1969 he was a Pulitzer Prize finalist with Tad Szulc and Henry Kamm for articles on the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia. (TooFondOfBooks)

J. Courtney Sullivan presents "Saints for All Occasions"
The Concord Bookshop, Monday, May 15 at 7pm
Please join us for a special MONDAY evening event, when J. Courtney Sullivan reads from and signs her new novel, Saints for All Occasions. This is a sweeping, unforgettable novel from The New York Times best-selling author of Maine, about the hope, sacrifice, and love between two sisters and the secret that drives them apart.

Nora and Theresa Flynn are twenty-one and seventeen when they leave their small village in Ireland and journey to America. Nora is the responsible sister; she’s shy and serious and engaged to a man she isn’t sure that she loves. Theresa is gregarious; she is thrilled by their new life in Boston and besotted with the fashionable dresses and dance halls on Dudley Street. But when Theresa ends up pregnant, Nora is forced to come up with a plan—a decision with repercussions they are both far too young to understand. Fifty years later, Nora is the matriarch of a big Catholic family with four grown children: John, a successful, if opportunistic, political consultant; Bridget, privately preparing to have a baby with her girlfriend; Brian, at loose ends after a failed baseball career; and Patrick, Nora’s favorite, the beautiful boy who gives her no end of heartache. Estranged from her sister and cut off from the world, Theresa is a cloistered nun, living in an abbey in rural Vermont. Until, after decades of silence, a sudden death forces Nora and Theresa to confront the choices they made so long ago. A graceful, supremely moving novel from one of our most beloved writers, Saints for All Occasions explores the fascinating, funny, and sometimes achingly sad ways a secret at the heart of one family both breaks them and binds them together.

J. COURTNEY SULLIVAN is the New York Times best-selling author of the novels The Engagements, Maine, and Commencement. Maine was named a 2011 Time magazine Best Book of the Year and a Washington Post Notable Book. The Engagements was one of People Magazine’s Top Ten Books of 2013 and an Irish Times Best Book of the Year, and has been translated into seventeen languages. She has contributed to The New York Times Book Review, the Chicago Tribune, New York magazine, Elle, Glamour, Allure, Real Simple, and O: The Oprah Magazine, among many other publications. She lives in Brooklyn, New York (TooFondOfBooks)

Patrick Dacey presents "The Outer Cape"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, July 6 at 7pm
Please join us on Thursday, July 6 at 7pm, when Patrick Dacey presents his new novel, The Outer Cape.

There will be an opportunity for conversation with the author and a book-signing after the presentation.

This event is a free event. Should you wish to purchase a signed/inscribed copy of the book, but are unable to attend the author presentation, please give us a call to pre-order.

Patrick Dacey holds an MFA from Syracuse University. He has taught English at several universities in the U.S. and Mexico, and has worked as a reporter, landscaper, door-to-door salesman, and most recently on the overnight staff at a homeless shelter and detox center. His stories have been featured in The Paris Review, Zoetrope All-Story, Guernica, Bomb magazine, and Salt Hill among other publications.

** A piercing and compassionate debut novel about the twisting ways in which the young atone for the sins of the old in small town America **

Robert Kelly and his wife Irene were a golden couple of the late 70s she an artist, he a businessman, each possessed by a dynamism that seemed to promise them a place in a new and vibrant age. But with two young boys to care for, Irene finds herself confined by the very things she d dreamed of having, and her painting ambitions atrophy as she struggles to invest meaning into her role as wife and mother. And Robert, pressured by Irene's demands and haunted by the failure he sees looming, risks the family name and business to pursue a can t-miss real estate scheme.

In "The Outer Cape" we revisit the fictional town of Wequaquet, the setting of his short fiction collection, We've Already Gone This Far and see Patrick Dacey's talent stretch and soar. He delivers a story of four people grappling with the ghost of infinite possibility, a book in which chasing the American dream and struggling to survive are one and the same. (TooFondOfBooks)
