Jessica Herthel, I Am Jazz
Porter Square Books, Saturday, April 25 at 4pm
"All young people — regardless of difference — deserve the things Jazz shares in her lovely book: a loving family, supportive friends, and the freedom to be their true selves. A beautifully illustrated and accessible primer on one trans girl's journey of living her truth." — Janet Mock, New York Times bestselling author of Redefining Realness

"A terrific and timely book that explains to kids what it means to be transgender and — more importantly — that reminds kids our similarities are much more important than our differences." — Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of The Storyteller and Between the Lines

The story of a transgender child based on the real-life experience of Jazz Jennings, who has become a spokesperson for transkids everywhere.

From the time she was two years old, Jazz knew that she had a girl's brain in a boy's body. She loved pink and dressing up as a mermaid and didn't feel like herself in boys' clothing. This confused her family, until they took her to a doctor who said that Jazz was transgender and that she was born that way. Jazz's story is based on her real-life experience and she tells it in a simple, clear way that will be appreciated by picture book readers, their parents, and teachers.

Jessica Herthel is the Director of the Stonewall National Education Project. A graduate of Harvard Law School, Jessica spent several years in private law practice before taking time off to raise her three daughters and travel abroad in the United Arab Emirates. Upon returning to Florida, Jessica began working on LGBTQ-inclusive projects with Broward County Public Schools' Office of Diversity, Cultural Outreach & Prevention. In that office Jessica oversaw the development of LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum and lesson plans for elementary, middle, and high school students; she was also the primary editor of Broward County's "LGBTQ Critical Support Guide" which is currently being implemented throughout the district. Jessica feels privileged to have worked with the indomitable Jazz on this book, and knows that Jazz's message of courage and self-worth will continue to inspire children and adults from around the world.

One Book! Featured Author B.A. Shapiro
Ipswich Public Library, Sunday, April 26 at 3pm
Please join us for a special visit by the author of the main reading selection for this year's Ipswich Reads...One Book! Event.
B.A. Shapiro is the author of The Art Forger, a literary thriller about the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum heist that spans three centuries of forgers, art thieves, and obsessive collectors. Writing as Barbara Shapiro, she is also the author of five suspense novels The Safe Room, Blind Spot, See No Evil, Blameless and Shattered Echoes as well as the non-fiction book, The Big Squeeze. She lives in Boston and teaches creative writing at Northeastern University.
About The Art Forger:
In the early morning hours of March 18, 1990, two men dressed as police officers bound and gagged two guards at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, Massachusetts, and stole thirteen works of art worth today over $500 million. Despite thousands of hours of police work and a $5 million reward, the artwork has never been recovered. Claire Roth, a struggling young artist, is about to discover that there's more to this crime than meets the eye.
Copies of the book are available at the library. (added from Eventkeeper)

Michaela MacColl presents "The Revelations of Louisa May"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, April 26 at 3pm
Join us on Sunday, April 26th at 3pm for an author presentation by Michaela MacColl, with her new novel for Young Adults.

Louisa May Alcott can't believe it—her mother is leaving for the summer to earn money for the family and Louisa is to be in charge of the household.

How will she find the time to write her stories, much less have any adventures of her own?

But before long, Louisa finds herself juggling her temperamental father, a mysterious murder, a fugitive seeking refuge along the Underground Railroad, and blossoming love.

Intertwining fact, fiction, and quotes from Little Women, Michaela MacColl has crafted another spunky heroine whose story will keep readers turning pages until the very end.

Michaela MacColl studied multidisciplinary history at Vassar College and Yale University, which turns out to be the perfect degree for writing historical fiction. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Connecticut. (TooFondOfBooks)

Lori Goldstein, Becoming Jinn
Porter Square Books, Monday, April 27 at 7pm
Azra Nadira's Jinn ancestry means magic has always been inside her. But the rules don't allow her to begin drawing upon it until the day she turns sixteen. The day she receives the silver bangle that releases her powers and transforms her into a genie.

It doesn’t have to be tight like a handcuff to achieve the same effect.

Her destiny is now controlled by the powerful Afrit who rule over the Jinn world, and she must keep her true identity a secret from all but the fellow Jinn who make up her Zar sisterhood.

Though she grew up with these five Jinn "sisters," they’ve always wanted the one thing Azra never has: to become a Jinn. This fact separates Azra from them now more than ever. When she reconnects with Henry, the human boy across the street she used to play with as a child, she finds in him the best friend her Zar sisters are supposed to be.

The more she uses her powers, the less she feels like a Jinn. Maybe that’s because her focus begins to shift to Nate, the lifeguard with the underwear model exterior and sweet, shy interior.

Her attachments to Henry and Nate and the human world begin to further strain her ties to her Zar and the Jinn. With her attention divided, she skirts the rules, and her genie mistakes begin to mount, along with the consequences.

As Azra uncovers the darker world of Becoming Jinn, she realizes when genies and wishes are involved, there’s always a trick.

Lori Goldstein was born into an Italian-Irish family and raised in a small town on the New Jersey shore. She earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism from Lehigh University and worked as a writer, editor, and graphic designer before becoming a full-time author. She currently lives and writes outside of Boston.

Council on Aging Book Discussion - The Bully Pulpit by Doris Kearns Goodwin, pt.2
Ames Free Library Of Easton, Tuesday, April 28 at 2pm
Come join us for a discussion on this month's selected book,The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism by Doris Kearns Goodwin. This discussion is a continuations from our meeting on February 24th.
The gap between rich and poor has never been wider...legislative stalemate paralyzes the country...corporations resist federal regulations...spectacular mergers produce giant companies...the influence of money in politics deepens...bombs explode in crowded streets...small wars proliferate far from our shores...a dizzying array of inventions speeds the pace of daily life. These unnervingly familiar headlines serve as the backdrop for Doris Kearns Goodwin's highly anticipated The Bully Pulpit -a dynamic history of the first decade of the Progressive era, that tumultuous time when the nation was coming unseamed and reform was in the air. The story is told through the intense friendship of Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft-a close relationship that strengthens both men before it ruptures in 1912, when they engage in a brutal fight for the presidential nomination that divides their wives, their children, and their closest friends, while crippling the progressive wing of the Republican Party, causing Democrat Woodrow Wilson to be elected, and changing the country's history. The Bully Pulpit is also the story of the muckraking press, which arouses the spirit of reform that helps Roosevelt push the government to shed its laissez-faire attitude toward robber barons, corrupt politicians, and corporate exploiters of our natural resources.
The Council on Aging Book Club meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 1:00 PM. Our Meetings take place at Frothingham Hall, 15 Barrows Street, N. Easton, MA. We welcome all new members! (added from Eventkeeper)

Erika DeSimone and Fidel Louis, Voices Beyond Bondage
Porter Square Books, Tuesday, April 28 at 7pm
Slaves in chains, toiling on master’s plantation. Beatings, bloodied whips. This is what many of us envision when we think of 19th century African Americans; source materials penned by those who suffered in bondage validate this picture. Yet slavery was not the only identity of 19th-century African Americans. Whether they were freeborn, self-liberated, or born in the years after the Emancipation, African Americans had a rich cultural heritage all their own, a heritage largely subsumed in popular history and collective memory by the atrocity of slavery.

The early 19th century birthed the nation's first black-owned periodicals, the first media spaces to provide primary outlets for the empowerment of African American voices. For many, poetry became this empowerment. Almost every black-owned periodical featured an open call for poetry, and African Americans, both free and enslaved, responded by submitting droves of poems for publication. Yet until now, these poems -- and an entire literary movement -- have been lost to modern readers.

The poems in Voices Beyond Bondage address the horrific and the mundane, the humorous and the ordinary and the extraordinary. Authors wrote about slavery, but also about love, morality, politics, perseverance, nature, and God. These poems evidence authors who were passionate, dedicated, vocal, and above all resolute in a bravery which was both weapon and shield against a world of prejudice and inequity. These authors wrote to be heard; more than 150 years later it is at last time for us to listen.

Erika DeSimone earned her undergraduate degree from Westfield State University (Massachusetts), where she engaged with poetry and other creative writing projects. She later earned a Certificate of Editorial Study from New York University’s School of Professional Studies. She is currently an editorial assistant at the Modern Language Association, where she has worked for more than a decade.

Fidel Louis attended New York University, where he earned both a bachelor’s degree in linguistics (1991) and a master’s degree in mass communications (1994). While in school, he wrote and edited newspaper articles for Haiti Observateur and The Alliance. He joined the New York Amsterdam News as a contributing writer and the Caribbean News Network as managing editor. He has also written several screenplays. He speaks five languages fluently and is certified as interpreter and translator for the New York state court system.
