Harriet Scott Chessman presents "The Lost Sketchbook of Edgar Degas"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, March 26 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, March 26 at 3pm, when Harriet Chessman presents her new historical novel, The Lost Sketchbook of Edgar Degas.

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.

** A lyrical novel about what art can reveal, and a nuanced imagining of the people who influenced Edgar Degas and his work. With key roles for beloved Degas paintings. **

Ten years after Edgar Degas’ 1872 visit to New Orleans, a lost sketchbook surfaces. His Creole cousin Tell -- who lost her sight as a young woman -- listens as her former child-servant describes the drawings and reads Degas’ enigmatic words. It’s both cryptic and revelatory, leading Tell to new understandings of her marriage, her difficult, brilliant cousin Edgar, her daughter Josephine, and herself.

Harriet Scott Chessman is the author of the acclaimed novels "The Beauty of Ordinary Things," "Someone Not Really Her Mother," "Lydia Cassatt Reading the Morning Paper," and "Ohio Angels." She is also the author of the libretto for My Lai, a contemporary operatic piece commissioned by Kronos Quartet in 2015. She has taught literature and creative writing at Yale University, Bread Loaf School of English, and Stanford University's Continuing Studies Program. (TooFondOfBooks)

Northeast MA Readers' Advisory Round Table [Danvers]
Peabody Institute Library - Danvers, Tuesday, March 28 at 10:45am
The Northeastern Readers' Advisory Round Table's Nonfiction History Arc: Microhistories
Benchmark: Everyone Reads Mark Kurlansky's Salt: A World History.
This is the second of a three-meeting arc covering Historical Nonfiction. In January 2017 we talked about Defining Times, and in May 2017 we will discuss Specific Settings. The list of books and the notes on what we learned in our discussions can be found on our blog. Because we cancelled our January meeting, please come prepared to discuss the Benchmark for Defining Times: Stephen Johnson's The Ghost Map. Please post your second Defining Times books to the blog. We may not have time to share all of the second titles of both categories at this meeting.
Please read a 2nd title in the Nonfiction History Arc: Microhistories--look on the RA RT blog: for a list of suggested titles and some supporting materials.
Appeal to be read for March meeting: Focus on all the appeal factors, but really think about setting, pace, and tone.
Meeting every other month, the NE RA RT reads from one genre--and then discusses the appeal of that genre with each other emphasizing the building of a skill set of appeal categories and familiarity of genre particulars. They cover a different genre every meeting, allowing each of the participants to be introduced to the discipline of reading for appeal, as well as an initiation to broad genre categories. Everyone participating will be able to share analysis of titles and authors in unfamiliar genres that will stretch their capicity as readers' advisors.  The discussion leaders are Leane Ellis (ellis@noblenet.org) and Nanci Milone Hill (nhill@mvlc.org).

SPECIAL Thursday Night at the Movies
Mansfield Public Library, Thursday, March 30 at 7pm
Come to your local library for a Thursday night movie showing. The Mansfield Public Library hosts monthly bestselling movie showings from 6pm to 8pm. This month’s movie is a special documentary on Ellis Island presented by PBS. "Visit the abandoned immigrant hospital on Ellis Island. During the great wave of immigration, 22 medical buildings sprawled across two islands adjacent to Ellis Island, the largest port of entry to the United States. Massive and modern, the hospital was America's first line of defense against contagious, often virulent, disease. In the era before antibiotics, tens of thousands of immigrant patients were separated from family, detained in the hospital and healed from illness before becoming citizens." Contact the library for this month’s title or come in and check out the flyer! This program is free and open to all ages. No registration is required.
This program is part of our One Book One Community 2017 pick The Fall of Marigolds by Susan Meissner. Meet the author via Skype on Thursday March 16 at 7pm.
