Afternoon Book Discussion
Dighton Public Library, Thursday, May 25 at 5pm
The Afternoon Book Discussion Group of the Dighton Public Library is discussing A Star for Mrs. Blake by April Smith.
From Booklist: /*Starred Review*/ Smith, author of five thrillers starring FBI Special Agent Ana Grey, here offers a heartfelt glimpse into a little-known episode in U.S. history, the journey taken by mothers of U.S. soldiers fallen in WWI to visit their sons’ graves in Europe. Smith focuses on five mothers whose sons were buried at the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery in France. Their unofficial leader is Cora Blake, a single mother from Maine. She’s joined by an Irish maid, the wife of an immigrant Russian chicken farmer, a woman who’s been in and out of mental institutions since her son was killed, and a wealthy Boston socialite. Smith deftly spotlights moments along their sojourn, from the giggling fits brought on by the French delicacies they are served on board ship to the tears they shed when confronted by the stark white lines of marble stones where their sons’ remains now lie. Side plots revolve around an American journalist, badly disfigured in the war, who befriends Cora and publishes her story in a French newspaper, and the practice of racially segregating these mothers, even in their grief. Smith’s foray into historical fiction is captivating and enlightening. -- Donovan, Deborah (Reviewed 11-15-2013) (Booklist, vol 110, number 6, p26)
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 -- Marianne Leone with Ma Speaks Up
Kingston Public Library, Thursday, May 25 at 8pm
The acclaimed actress and author of Jesse: A Mother's Story tells the story of her outspoken, frequently outrageous Italian immigrant mother.
Ma Speaks Up: And a First Generation Daughter Talks Back is a record of growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, with the wrong family, in the wrong religion. Though Marianne's girlhood is flooded with shame, it's equally packed with adventure, love, great cooking, and, above all, humor. The extremely premature birth of Marianne's beloved son, Jesse, bonds mother and daughter in ways she couldn't have imagined. The stories she tells will speak to anyone who has struggled with outsider status in any form and, of course, to mothers and their blemished, cherished girls.
Marianne Leone is an actress, screenwriter and essayist. She had a recurring role on HBO's Sopranos and has appeared in other films, including David O. Russell's recent film Joy. Her essays have appeared in The Boston Globe, Coastal Living, Post Road and Solstice. She is married to Chris Cooper, an academy-award winning actor. She lives in Kingston.
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, May 25 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)

Thoreau and the Language of Trees
Harvard Museum of Natural History, Saturday, June 17 at 2pm
Trees were central to Henry David Thoreau’s creativity as a writer, his work as a naturalist, his thought, and his inner life. He admired their beauty, studied how they grew, took them as spiritual companions, and wrote about them as few have. When he said the poet loves the pine tree as his own “shadow in the air,” he was speaking about himself. In short, he spoke their language. In this illustrated talk, based on the new book Thoreau and the Language of Trees (University of California Press, 2017), Richard Higgins explores Thoreau’s deep connections to trees. Using Thoreau’s words, photographs of historic trees, and his own black-and-white photographs of trees today, Higgins looks at Thoreau’s keen perception of trees, the poetry he saw in them, and how they fed his soul. He presents trees as a central thread connecting all parts of Thoreau’s being—heart, mind, and spirit. (HMNHpr)… (more)
