MAC'S BOOK CLUB
Mac's Backs Books, Wednesday, September 17 at 7:30pm
Mac's Book Club will discuss Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline on Wednesday, September 17th at 7:30 p.m.

Between 1854 and 1929, so-called Orphan Trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by pure luck. Would they be adopted by a kind and loving family, or would they face a childhood and adolescence of hard labor and servitude?

As a young Irish immigrant, Vivian Daly was one such child, sent by rail from New York City to an uncertain future a world away. Returning east later in life, Vivian leads a quiet, peaceful existence on the coast of Maine, the memories of her upbringing rendered a hazy blur. But in her attic, hidden in trunks, are vestiges of a turbulent past.

Seventeen-year-old Molly Ayer knows that a community-service position helping an elderly widow clean out her attic is the only thing keeping her out of juvenile hall. But as Molly helps Vivian sort through her keepsakes and possessions, she discovers that she and Vivian aren't as different as they appear. A Penobscot Indian who has spent her youth in and out of foster homes, Molly is also an outsider being raised by strangers, and she, too, has unanswered questions about the past.

Moving between contemporary Maine and Depression-era Minnesota, Orphan Train is a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience, second chances, and unexpected friendship.

“In Orphan Train, Christina Baker Kline seamlessly knits together the past and present of two women, one young and one old. Kline reminds us that we never really lose anyone or anything or--perhaps most importantly--ourselves.” -Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle

WEBSTER'S NEW WORLD COLLEGE DICTIONARY 5TH EDITION
Mac's Backs Books, Thursday, September 25 at 7pm
Webster's New World College Dictionary 5th Edition will be published in August, 2014. It is the first new edition in 15 years and until recently was edited right here in Cleveland. Some of the editors that worked on this 5th edition will be at Mac's on Thursday, September 25th at 7 p.m. to talk about the process of working on one of the world's best dictionaries.

Webster's New World Dictonary is the official dictionary of The Associated Press Stylebook and hundreds of newsrooms across the United States. Thoroughly reviewed and revised, this new 5th edition includes nearly 5,000 new words and senses (hashtag, selfie) and features a brand new design. Since the 1930's this dictionary has been synonymous with rigourous research and clearly written accessible definitions.

Editors Louise E. Robbins, Andrew Sparks and Jennifer Wason will discuss the dictionary and answer any questions you may have.

Louise Robbins is Senior Editor in the reference group at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt which publishes Webster's New World and the American Heritage reference books. She has Ph.D in the history of science from University of Wisconsin/Madison and is a Cleveland Heights native now living in Boston.

Andrew Sparks left the United States Navy in 1956 and began working on the dictionary staff in Cleveland. He became Supervising Editor and trained much of the staff that worked on this book, which he believes is the best dictionary published in the United States. Andrew was part of a Great Books Group from 1958-2013 and was recently named Citizen of the Year in Olmstead Falls.

Jennifer Wellman Wason was an Assistant Editor for the dictionary for more than 11 years. She is a Kenyon College graduate and has a master's in library science from KSU. Jennifer lives in Cleveland Heights and works as a technical writer.
