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)

Julie Lekstrom Himes presents "Mikhail and Margarita"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, April 30 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, April 30 at 3pm, when Julie Lekstrom Himes presents Mikhail and Margarita, a historic novel set in 1930s Russia.

Julie Lekstrom Himes’ short fiction has been published in Shenandoah, The Florida Review (Editor’s Choice Award 2008), Fourteen Hills (nominated for Best American Mysteries 2011), and elsewhere. She lives with her family in Marblehead, Massachusetts.

** A love triangle involving Mikhail Bulgakov, famed author of The Master and Margarita, an agent of Stalin’s secret police, and the bewitching Margarita has inescapable consequences for all three in 1930s Russia. **

It is 1933 and Mikhail Bulgakov’s enviable career is on the brink of being dismantled. His friend and mentor, the poet Osip Mandelstam, has been arrested, tortured, and sent into exile. Meanwhile, a mysterious agent of the secret police has developed a growing obsession with exposing Bulgakov as an enemy of the state. To make matters worse, Bulgakov has fallen in love with the dangerously outspoken Margarita. Facing imminent arrest, infatuated with Margarita, he is inspired to write his masterpiece, The Master and Margarita, a satirical novel that is scathingly critical of power and the powerful.

Ranging between lively readings in the homes of Moscow’s literary elite to the Siberian Gulag, Mikhail and Margarita recounts a passionate love triangle while painting a portrait of a country with a towering literary tradition confronting a dictatorship that does not tolerate dissent. Margarita is a strong, idealistic woman, who is fiercely loved by two very different men, both of whom will fail in their attempts to shield her from the machinations of a regime hungry for human sacrifice. Himes launches a rousing defense of art and the artist during a time of systematic deception and she movingly portrays the ineluctable consequences of love for one of history’s most enigmatic literary figures.

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)

Nina Sankovitch presents a free author event with "The Lowells of Massachusetts: An American Family"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, May 7 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, May 7 at 3pm, when Nina Sankovitch presents her new biography, "The Lowells of Massachusetts," a fascinating chronicle of one of the most powerful families in the United States during the country’s early years.

The Lowells of Massachusetts were a remarkable family. They were settlers in the New World in the 1600s, revolutionaries creating a new nation in the 1700s, merchants and manufacturers building prosperity in the 1800s, and scientists and artists flourishing in the 1900s. For the first time, Nina Sankovitch tells the story of this fascinating and powerful dynasty in "The Lowells of Massachusetts."

Though not without scoundrels and certainly no strangers to controversy. The Lowells realized the promise of America as the land of opportunity by uniting Puritan values of hard work, community service, and individual responsibility with a deep-seated optimism that became a well-known family trait. Long before the Kennedys put their stamp on Massachusetts, the Lowells claimed the bedrock.

Nina Sankovitch is the author of "Tolstoy and the Purple Chair" and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered: Celebrating the Joys of Letter Writing." She was born in Evanston, Illinois and is a graduate Tufts University and Harvard Law School. She lives with her family in Connecticut.

This is a free author talk, Q&A, and book signing -- join us! (TooFondOfBooks)
