Afternoon Book Discussion
Dighton Public Library, Thursday, March 30 at 5pm
The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.
From Library Journal: /* Starred Review */ Shifting among multiple viewpoints but focusing mostly on blind French teenager Marie-Laure and Werner, a brilliant German soldier just a few years older than she, this novel has the physical and emotional heft of a masterpiece. The  main protagonists are brave, sensitive, and intellectually curious, and in another time they might have been a couple. But they are on opposite sides of the  horrors of World War II, and their fates ultimately collide in connection with the  radio—a means of resistance for the  Allies and just one more avenue of annihilation for the  Nazis. Set mostly in the  final year of the  war but moving back to the  1930s and forward to the  present, the  novel presents two characters so interesting and sympathetic that readers will keep turning the  pages hoping for an impossibly happy ending. Marie-Laure and Werner both suffer crushing losses and struggle to survive with dignity amid Hitler's swath of cruelty and destruction. VERDICT Doerr (The  Shell Collector ) has received multiple honors for his fiction, including four O. Henry Prizes and the  New York Public Library's Young Lions Award. His latest is highly recommended for fans of Michael Ondaatje's similarly haunting The  English Patient .— Evelyn Beck, Piedmont Technical Coll., Greenwood, SC --Evelyn Beck (Reviewed February 1, 2014) (Library Journal, vol 139, issue 2, p62)
 
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)

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. Please register for the author Skype session under that event. For more information, please contact Amy Rosa, Reference Librarian, at (508) 261-7380 or arosa@sailsinc.org. (added from Eventkeeper)

Truly Eleanor
Thayer Public Library, Saturday, April 1 at 3pm
Truly Eleanor performed by the Delvena Theatre Company
Here in this three-person, live performance, Eleanor Roosevelt shares some of her most private and meaningful moments - her lonely childhood; her joyous courtship and marriage with her fifth cousin, Franklin; her devastation at Franklin's love affair with her own social secretary; her resolve to make him president after his polio diagnosis; her involvement in his presidency; and her eventual triumph at the United Nations. "Truly Eleanor" takes a candid look at our greatest First Lady's courage and at her great contributions to human rights and liberty for all. The cast will open up for discussion of the subject matter after the performance.
Part of the One Braintree One Book community read. No registration necessary. Free and open to the public.
