Non-Fiction Book Group
Ipswich Public Library, Monday, June 26 at 7:30pm
All are welcome to participate in this new book group! This month we will discuss:
Jungle of Stone: The Extraordinary Journey of John L. Stephens and Frederick Catherwood, and the Discovery of the Lost Civilization of the Maya, by William Carlsen
In 1839, rumors of extraordinary yet baffling stone ruins buried within the unmapped jungles of Central America reached two of the world's most intrepid travelers. Seized by the reports, American diplomat John Lloyd Stephens and British artist Frederick Catherwood-both already celebrated for their adventures in Egypt, the Holy Land, Greece, and Rome-sailed together out of New York Harbor on an expedition into the forbidding rainforests of present-day Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico. What they found would upend the West's understanding of human history.
Books are available for checkout at the library. (added from Eventkeeper)

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.

This event is a free event. Should you wish to purchase a signed/inscribed copy of the book, but are unable to attend the author presentation, please give us a call to pre-order.

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)
