Read to a Dog
Swampscott Public Library, Saturday, October 21 at 12pm
11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Read to Tundra our reading education assistance dog. Tundra, a certified therapy dog, will be accompanied by his owner Pamela Wall who is volunteering her time for the program. There will be four 15-minuted slots for reading. Registration is required for this program and will begin on
October 14.
Why read to a dog?
Animals are ideal reading companions because they:
* listen attentively * do not judge, laugh or criticize
* allow children to proceed at their own pace * are less intimidating than peers
When a dog is "listening" fear of failure is removed allowing a child to learn more effectively. The dog's handler is a skilled facilitator who provides subtle support without creating performance pressure in the child. (added from Eventkeeper)

Acton Memorial Library, Saturday, October 21 at 3pm
In 1637 the Puritans of Massachusetts and the fledgling colony of Connecticut declared war on the Pequot Indians—the most powerful of all the New England tribes. What had the Pequots done to incur the wrath of the English? Why did the Narragansetts and Mohegans side with the English? What role did the Dutch play in the war? Why did the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony refuse Massachusetts’ request for assistance? Author Edward Lodi provides answers to these and other questions.

Margot Livesey presents "The Hidden Machinery"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, October 22 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, October 22 at 3pm, when Margot Livesey presents her new collection of essays, The Hidden Machinery. The event is free and open to the public; there will be time for Q&A and book signing after her talk.

In The Hidden Machinery, Margot Livesey offers a masterclass for those who love reading literature and for those who aspire to write it. Through close readings, arguments about craft, and personal essay, Livesey delves into the inner workings of fiction and considers how our stories and novels benefit from paying close attention to both great works of literature and to our own individual experiences. Her essays range in subject matter from navigating the shoals of research to creating characters that walk off the page, from how Flaubert came to write his first novel to how Jane Austen subverted romance in her last one. As much at home on your nightstand as it is in the classroom, The Hidden Machinery will become a book readers and writers return to over and over again.

Margot Livesey is the New York Times bestselling author of the novels Mercury, The Flight of Gemma Hardy, The House on Fortune Street, Banishing Verona, Eva Moves the Furniture, The Missing World, Criminals, and Homework. Her work has appeared in the New Yorker, Vogue, and the Atlantic, and she is the recipient of grants from both the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation. Born in Scotland, Livesey currently lives in the Boston area and is a professor of fiction at the Iowa Writers' Workshop. (TooFondOfBooks)

Sunday Concert Series presents Marc Berger
Boyden Library, Sunday, October 22 at 3pm
Marc's life has been about pursuing twin passions: creating and recording his American roots songs, and exploring remote areas of the desert and mountain West. After signing his first publishing contract while in law school, he fronted rock bands and performed regularly in New York City clubs like CBGB, Wetlands, and The Knitting Factory. All through this period, he'd find ways to get into the West, picking up details from fellow wilderness junkies about off the beaten path locales and filing them away for future reference. On one of these trips, he became intrigued by the cover of THE BIG IT, a book of short stories by A.B. Guthrie he found on a revolving paperback rack in a Navajo reservation trading post. It got him thinking about using his travels to create a set of songs in the cultural tradition of writers like Guthrie and visual artists like John Ford and Frederick Remington. Marc and Co-Producer Mike Ricciardi now present RIDE, ten cinematic recordings reflecting his romantic connection to the American West and exploring the value of its myths to contemporary culture.
