At our first meeting, we will be discussing Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, by Erik Larson - Copies will be available for check-out at the library beginning May 1st.
About Dead Wake:
On May 1, 1915, with WWI entering its tenth month, a luxury ocean liner as richly appointed as an English country house sailed out of New York, bound for Liverpool, carrying a record number of children and infants. The passengers were surprisingly at ease, even though Germany had declared the seas around Britain to be a war zone and for months, had brought terror to the North Atlantic. As a German U-boat and the Lusitania made their way toward Liverpool, an array of forces both grand and achingly small-hubris, a chance fog, a closely guarded secret, and more-all converged to produce one of the great disasters of history.

The Northeastern Readers' Advisory Round Table's Nonfiction History Arc: Specific Settings
Benchmark: Everyone Reads Thomas Cahill's How the Irish Saved Civilzation
This is the third of a three-meeting arc covering Historical Nonfiction. In January 2017 we talked about Defining Times, and in March 2017 Microhistories. The list of books and the notes on what we learned in our discussions can be found on our blog.
Please read a 2nd title in the Nonfiction History Arc: Specific Settings--look on the RA RT blog: for a list of suggested titles and some supporting materials.
Appeal to be read for May meeting: Focus on all the appeal factors, but really think about setting, pace, and tone.
Meeting every other month, the NE RA RT reads from one genre--and then discusses the appeal of that genre with each other emphasizing the building of a skill set of appeal categories and familiarity of genre particulars. They cover a different genre every meeting, allowing each of the participants to be introduced to the discipline of reading for appeal, as well as an initiation to broad genre categories. Everyone participating will be able to share analysis of titles and authors in unfamiliar genres that will stretch their capicity as readers' advisors. The discussion leaders are Leane Ellis (ellis@noblenet.org) and Nanci Milone Hill (nhill@mvlc.org). (added from Eventkeeper)

Josh Funk and Melissa Stewart share a free storytime and book talk with their new children's books
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, June 11 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, June 11 at 3pm -- Picture book authors Melissa Stewart ("Can an Aardvark Bark?") and Josh Funk ("The Case of the Stinky Stench") will present their newest works, with stories, Q&A, and book signing ... fun!

"Can An Aardvark Bark?" - From award-winning author Melissa Stewart comes a noisy nonfiction exploration of the many sounds animals make.

Can an aardvark bark? No, but it can grunt. Lots of other animals grunt too...

Barks, grunts, squeals--animals make all kinds of sounds to communicate and express themselves. With a growling salamander and a whining porcupine, bellowing giraffes and laughing gorillas, this boisterous book is chock-full of fun and interesting facts and is sure to be a favorite of even the youngest animal enthusiasts.

"The Case of the Stinky Stench" - There's a stinky stench in the fridge - and our favorite foodie friends must solve a smelly mystery Sir French Toast's nephew, Inspector Croissant, begs him and Lady Pancake for help in finding the source of the foul odor. Could it be the devious Baron Von Waffle? A fetid fish lurking in the bottom of Corn Chowder Lake? Featuring the same delectable rhymes, wordplay, and art that won critical raves for "Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast" - there's even an actual red herring - this fun follow-up is an absolutely tasty treat for kids.

Join Melissa and Josh as they present their newest works, take your questions, and sign books! (TooFondOfBooks)

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)

Patrick Dacey presents "The Outer Cape"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, July 6 at 7pm
Please join us on Thursday, July 6 at 7pm, when Patrick Dacey presents his new novel, The Outer Cape.

There will be an opportunity for conversation with the author and a book-signing after the presentation.

Patrick Dacey holds an MFA from Syracuse University. He has taught English at several universities in the U.S. and Mexico, and has worked as a reporter, landscaper, door-to-door salesman, and most recently on the overnight staff at a homeless shelter and detox center. His stories have been featured in The Paris Review, Zoetrope All-Story, Guernica, Bomb magazine, and Salt Hill among other publications.

** A piercing and compassionate debut novel about the twisting ways in which the young atone for the sins of the old in small town America **

Robert Kelly and his wife Irene were a golden couple of the late 70s she an artist, he a businessman, each possessed by a dynamism that seemed to promise them a place in a new and vibrant age. But with two young boys to care for, Irene finds herself confined by the very things she d dreamed of having, and her painting ambitions atrophy as she struggles to invest meaning into her role as wife and mother. And Robert, pressured by Irene's demands and haunted by the failure he sees looming, risks the family name and business to pursue a can t-miss real estate scheme.

In "The Outer Cape" we revisit the fictional town of Wequaquet, the setting of his short fiction collection, We've Already Gone This Far and see Patrick Dacey's talent stretch and soar. He delivers a story of four people grappling with the ghost of infinite possibility, a book in which chasing the American dream and struggling to survive are one and the same. (TooFondOfBooks)
