Local Author Michael C. de la Pea will be at the library to discuss his new book, The Coyote Wars. No registration is required, and all are welcome.
Synopsis:
Deep within the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, a terrorist family resides in a compound they call the Fortress. Tim Wallace is the patriarch of the terrorist clan, and he & his wife train their children to one-day infiltrate key government agencies. One by one, the Wallace children leave the Fortress and take their respective assignments.
The last piece of their plan is infiltrating Peter Wallace, considered their prodigy, into the FBI. They ingeniously devise a plan, which successfully places Peter at the FBI Academy. However, upon graduation, Peter is posted to the Boston office of the FBI. While there, he tangles with Carlos Sullivan, Boston's polygraph examiner, who begins to suspect Peter is not who he claims to be. Sullivan and his team begin a search for the truth. Will they succeed in foiling the Wallace's terrorist plot in time? Or will the Wallace's evil conspiracy bring the country to its knees?

Council on Aging Book Discussion - The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
Ames Free Library Of Easton, Tuesday, September 23 at 2pm
Come join us for a discussion on this month's selected book,The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman.
Over five years in the writing, The Dovekeepers is Alice Hoffman's most ambitious and mesmerizing novel, a tour de force of imagination and research, set in ancient Israel. In 70 C.E., nine hundred Jews held out for months against armies of Romans on Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert. According to the ancient historian Josephus, two women and five children survived. Based on this tragic and iconic event, Hoffman's novel is a spellbinding tale of four extraordinarily bold, resourceful, and sensuous women, each of whom has come to Masada by a different path. The lives of these four complex and fiercely independent women intersect in the desperate days of the siege. All are dovekeepers, and all are also keeping secrets-about who they are, where they come from, who fathered them, and whom they love. The Dovekeepers is Alice Hoffman's masterpiece.
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)
