Afternoon Book Discussion
Dighton Public Library, Thursday, June 29 at 5pm
The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing Sing Them Homeby Stephanie Kallos.
From Publisher's Weekly: /*Starred Review*/ The Jones family would seem to have no luck. Aneira Hope Jones, already terminally ill, was swept away by a tornado in 1978. Now her husband has been felled by lightning, and his longtime mistress, Viney-best friend to his wife and virtually the stepmother of his three children-must rally alientated, overweight art scholar Larken; sex-obsessed Gaelen, a famed weatherman mostly because of his family history; and their slightly nutty little sister, Bonnie. The Jones siblings have had far from perfect lives. But they're also rooted in the warm and sensible little town of Emlyn, NE, proud of its Welsh heritage, and this fresh, invigorating novel fingers carefully through their pain. Kallos (Broken for You) doesn't rip her characters apart, just tenderly shows us their failings as they stumble, in a realistic and satisfying manner, toward better selves. Highly recommended. See Prepub Alert, LJ 8/08.—Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal --Barbara Hoffert (Reviewed September 1, 2008) (Library Journal, vol 133, issue 14, p118)
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)

Reading the Clues: Recognizing the Old House, at Home, and in the Landscape
Blanding Public Library, Thursday, June 29 at 8pm
Can you tell a Georgian from a Federal style home? Don't know the difference between Victorian and Greek Revival architecture? If you do live in an old home, how can you tell when it was built? As part of its recent initiative to get homes listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Rehoboth Historical Commission welcomes a talk by Sally Zimmerman of Historic New England's historic preservation team. Ms. Zimmerman has taught Preservation Studies at Boston University, is a co-author of "Painting Historic Exteriors: Colors, Appliction, and Regulation," and the developer of "20th Century Colors of America" paint palette, a documented range of colors of the recent past produced by California Paints. She previously worked as Preservation Planner at the Cambridge Historical Commission and before that served as Director of Preservation Planning for the Massachusetts Historical Commission. This program in Goff Hall is free and open to the public. No pre-registration required. (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)
