Jeanne Birdsall
Porter Square Books, Friday, March 27 at 7pm
Jeanne Birdsall (The Penderwicks, The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, Nancy and Plum, The Penderwicks in Spring, The Penderwicks 3-book Boxed Set, The Penderwicks Collection)

Jeanne Birdsall grew up in the suburbs west of Philadelphia, where she attended wonderful public schools. Jeanne had lots of great teachers, but her favorites were: Mrs. Corkhill, sixth grade, who encouraged her intellectual curiosity; Mr. Tremonte, eighth grade algebra, who taught Jeanne to love and respect math; and Miss Basehore, second and fourth year Latin, to whom Jeanne (and Mr. Penderwick) will be forever grateful. Although she first decided to become a writer when she was ten years old, it took Jeanne until she was forty-one to get started. In the years in between, Jeanne had many strange jobs to support herself while working hard as a photographer–the kind that makes art. Some of Jeanne's photographs are included in the permanent collections of museums, including the Smithsonian and the Philadelphia Art Museum. Jeanne's home now is with her husband in Northampton, Massachusetts. Their house is old and comfortable, full of unruly animals, and surrounded by gardens. (added from Random House)… (more)

Upcycled Books!
Sharon Public Library, Saturday, March 28 at 2pm
The books at the Sharon Public Library are in a constant state of use. Because many of our books get so much love, after a while they become too damaged to read. However, rather than dispose of these books, we'd rather upcycle them! Join us for a crafting event each month, as we experiment with different ways to find new uses for old books.
This program is open to everyone. However, there will be sharp objects and/or hot glue at some of the events, so parental supervision is required. (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

Ames Free Library Of Easton, Monday, March 30 at 7pm
At American Girl Book Club, we learn about history, we talk about positive and negative character traits, and we keep ourselves moving with a craft or game. We feature a different girl every month and it is great when participants read the book(s) or see the movie, but everyone is welcome to join!
In March we will discuss Kit who represents America’s Great Depression era. Kit refers to herself as not being “flouncy.” She is very much a tomboy who enjoys baseball and likes when boys are around because she believes they are always up to something. She is interested in everything and fancies herself a reporter and factual writer. Kit is characterized as having a “can-do attitude.” (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

Alan Lightman, Screening Room
Porter Square Books, Tuesday, March 31 at 7pm
"The cumulative effect of Lightman’s memories is wrenching: loss and illness and death wander freely in his pages, reminding us of the evanescence of youth and promise. The author shows us many small moments, igniting each with sparks of passion, memory and intelligence." — Kirkus (starred review)

From the acclaimed author of the international best seller Einstein’s Dreams, a lyrical memoir of Memphis from the 1930s through the 1960s: the music and the racism, the early days of the movies, and a powerful grandfather whose ghost continues to haunt the family.

Alan Lightman’s grandfather M.A. Lightman was the family’s undisputed patriarch: it was his movie theater empire that catapulted the family to prominence in the South; his fearless success that both galvanized and paralyzed his descendants, haunting them for a half century after his death. In this lyrical and impressionistic memoir, Lightman writes about returning to Memphis in an attempt to understand the people he so eagerly left behind forty years earlier. As aging uncles and aunts begin telling family stories, Lightman rediscovers his southern roots and slowly realizes the errors in his perceptions of his grandfather and of his own father, who had been crushed by M.A. Here is a family saga set against a throbbing century of Memphis—the rhythm and blues, the barbecue and pecan pie, and the segregated society—that includes personal encounters with Elvis, Martin Luther King, Jr., and E. H. "Boss" Crump. At the heart of it all is a family haunted by the ghost of the domineering M.A., and the struggle of the author to understand his conflicted loyalties to his father and grandfather.

Alan Lightman is the author of six novels, including the international best seller Einstein's Dreams and The Diagnosis, which was a National Book Award finalist. He is also the author of two collections of essays and several books on science. His work has appeared in The Atlantic, Granta, Harper's Magazine, The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, and Nature, among other publications. A theoretical physicist as well as a writer, he has served on the faculties of Harvard and MIT, where he was the first person to receive a dual faculty appointment in science and the humanities. He lives in the Boston area.
