Afternoon Book Discussion
Dighton Public Library, Thursday, April 27 at 5pm
The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing The Last Girls by Lee Smith.
From Booklist: /*Starred Review*/ In 1965, inspired by reading Huckleberry Finn for a favorite college teacher, a dozen young women took a raft trip down the Mississippi River to New Orleans. Thirty-four years later, four of these former Mary Scott College coeds duplicate the trip, this time on a riverboat quite luxurious compared to the craft they used before. Their reunion is not merely a way for them to catch up on each other’s lives; they also intend to spread the ashes of one in their group who recently died. There is the ever-repressed Harriet, the flamboyant romance writer Anna, the proper society lady Courtney, and the happily married Catherine, all of them accompanied, of course, by their memories of the irrepressible, irresistible, but manipulative Baby, now deceased. Achieving greater depths of characterization and heights of technique with each succeeding novel, Smith sets out here, as the women themselves set out on their trip, to explore various paths by which women journey from late adolescence to early middle age. With graceful, even brilliant shifts from past to present, Smith builds this absolutely inviting, completely compelling novel around the idea that “whatever you’re like in your youth, you’re only more so with age.” (Reviewed May 15, 2002) -- Brad Hooper
All are invited to join the discussion. This book group usually meets on the last Thursday of each month at 4:00. Copies of the book are available, in advance, at the library. (added from Eventkeeper)

Spring Author Talks -- David Wedge with Boston Strong
Kingston Public Library, Thursday, April 27 at 8pm
Veteran journalists Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge have written the definitive inside look at the Boston Marathon bombings with a unique, Boston-based account of the events that riveted the world. Based on months of intensive interviews, this is the first book to tell the entire story through the eyes of those who experienced it. From the cop first on the scene, to the detectives assigned to the manhunt, the authors provide a behind-the-scenes look at the investigation. More than a true-crime book, Boston Strong: A City's Triumph Over Tragedy also tells the tragic but ultimately life-affirming story of the victims and their recoveries and gives voice to those who lost loved ones.
Dave Wedge is a best-selling author and writer based in Boston. He was an investigative reporter at The Boston Herald for 14 years and now writes for Vice Media. He has also written for Esquire, Newsweek, THUMP and DigBoston. Boston Strong, written with New York Times bestselling author Casey Sherman, is his first book and is the basis for the new movie Patriots Day.
The ongoing author series is offered by the Kingston Public Library in cooperation with the Kingston Council on Aging and the Kingston Public Library Foundation. The series is sponsored by WATD 95.9 FM Radio. Programs are held at the Kingston Council on Aging, 30 Evergreen Street and will last from 7:00 - 9:00 PM.
The Kingston Public Library will provide copies of the books for sale and signing.
Light refreshments will be offered, and although the program is free, reservations are requested.
Register here or call the library at 781-585-0517, ext. 112, or the Council on Aging at 781-585-0512. (added from Eventkeeper)

Color Your Stress Away
Sharon Public Library, Thursday, April 27 at 8pm
Do you like to color? According to the Boston Globe, adult coloring books are flying off of the shelves. In a June 30, 2015 article, Dugan Arnett said, "In a sudden, unexpected, and generally curious development, grown-up versions of the doodle-books used by countless kindergartners have not only become a thing — but the thing, as far as millions of rapt Americans are concerned."
See what all the excitement is for yourself at our Adult Coloring Event! We'll have a selection of coloring pages for you to choose from, along with markers, colored pencils and gel pens. Join us for a relaxing evening and color your cares away... (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

Author Visit
Thayer Public Library, Sunday, April 30 at 3pm
Celebrate the One Braintree, One Book, 2017 Grand Finale with an afternoon with the author!
Ms. Shapiro's books will be available to purchase through the Friends of Thayer Public Library. This is a free event but will be ticketed. Tickets will be available at the library starting April12th.
B.A. Shapiro has done it all! She is the author of seven novels, four screenplays, and a non-fiction book. She has directed research projects for a residential substance abuse facility, worked as a systems analyst/statistician, headed the Boston office of a software development firm, and served as an adjunct professor teaching sociology at Tufts University and creative writing at Northeastern University, but likes being a novelist best.
When she quit a high-pressure job after the birth of her second child she was nervous about what to do next. She asked her mother, "If I'm not playing at being superwoman anymore, I don't know who I am." She was answered with a question: "If you had one year to live, how would you want to spend it?" The answer: write a novel and spend more time with her children. And that's exactly what she did!
Ms. Shapiro now lives in Boston with her husband Dan and her dog Sagan. And yes, she is working on another novel! (added from Eventkeeper)
