“Chronicle” Reporter Ted Reinstein
Thayer Public Library, Tuesday, May 30 at 8pm
Please join Ted Reinstein to talk about his current book Wicked Pissed: New England's Most Famous Feuds.
From sports to politics, food to finance, aviation to engineering, to bitter disputes over simple boundaries themselves, New England's feuds have peppered the region's life for centuries.
They've been raw and rowdy, sometimes high minded and humorous, and in a place renowned for its deep sense of history, often long-running and legendary.
There are even some that will undoubtedly outlast the region's ancient low stonewalls.
Ted Reinstein, a native New Englander and local writer, offers us fascinating stories, some known, others not so much, from the history of New England in this fun, accessible book. Bringing to life many of the fights, spats, and arguments that have, in many ways, shaped the area itself, Reinstein demonstrates what it really means to be Wicked Pissed.
Ted Reinstein has been a reporter for "Chronicle," WCVB-TV/Boston's award-winning—and America's longest-running, locally-produced—nightly news magazine since 1997. In addition, he is a regular contributor for the station's political roundtable show and writes a weekly opinion column. He lives just west of Boston with his wife and two daughters. He is also the author of New England Notebook (GPP 2013) (added from Eventkeeper)

"Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and deliver them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey.
One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. To keep young Luna safe from her own unwieldy power, Xan locks her magic deep inside her. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule--but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her--even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she's always known." (added from Eventkeeper)

Josh Funk and Melissa Stewart share a free storytime and book talk with their new children's books
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, June 11 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, June 11 at 3pm -- Picture book authors Melissa Stewart ("Can an Aardvark Bark?") and Josh Funk ("The Case of the Stinky Stench") will present their newest works, with stories, Q&A, and book signing ... fun!

"Can An Aardvark Bark?" - From award-winning author Melissa Stewart comes a noisy nonfiction exploration of the many sounds animals make.

Can an aardvark bark? No, but it can grunt. Lots of other animals grunt too...

Barks, grunts, squeals--animals make all kinds of sounds to communicate and express themselves. With a growling salamander and a whining porcupine, bellowing giraffes and laughing gorillas, this boisterous book is chock-full of fun and interesting facts and is sure to be a favorite of even the youngest animal enthusiasts.

"The Case of the Stinky Stench" - There's a stinky stench in the fridge - and our favorite foodie friends must solve a smelly mystery Sir French Toast's nephew, Inspector Croissant, begs him and Lady Pancake for help in finding the source of the foul odor. Could it be the devious Baron Von Waffle? A fetid fish lurking in the bottom of Corn Chowder Lake? Featuring the same delectable rhymes, wordplay, and art that won critical raves for "Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast" - there's even an actual red herring - this fun follow-up is an absolutely tasty treat for kids.

Join Melissa and Josh as they present their newest works, take your questions, and sign books! (TooFondOfBooks)

Thoreau and the Language of Trees
Harvard Museum of Natural History, Saturday, June 17 at 2pm
Trees were central to Henry David Thoreau’s creativity as a writer, his work as a naturalist, his thought, and his inner life. He admired their beauty, studied how they grew, took them as spiritual companions, and wrote about them as few have. When he said the poet loves the pine tree as his own “shadow in the air,” he was speaking about himself. In short, he spoke their language. In this illustrated talk, based on the new book Thoreau and the Language of Trees (University of California Press, 2017), Richard Higgins explores Thoreau’s deep connections to trees. Using Thoreau’s words, photographs of historic trees, and his own black-and-white photographs of trees today, Higgins looks at Thoreau’s keen perception of trees, the poetry he saw in them, and how they fed his soul. He presents trees as a central thread connecting all parts of Thoreau’s being—heart, mind, and spirit. (HMNHpr)… (more)

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)
