Adult Book Group Reads The Children Act for January 4th or 6th


Adult Book Group Reads "The Children Act" for January 4 or 6, 2016
Ian McEwan's The Children Act is the chosen title for All Booked Up's discussion on Wednesday, January 4th at 6:30PM or Friday, January 6th at 1:00PM.  Copies of the book are available in the upper level "New" room.

About the Book
Fiona Maye is a leading High Court judge who presides over cases in the family division. She is renowned for her fierce intelligence, exactitude, and sensitivity. But her professional success belies private sorrow and domestic strife. There is the lingering regret of her childlessness, and now her marriage of thirty years is in crisis.

At the same time, she is called on to try an urgent case: Adam, a beautiful seventeen-year-old boy, is refusing for religious reasons the medical treatment that could save his life, and his devout parents echo his wishes. Time is running out. Should the secular court overrule sincerely expressed faith? In the course of reaching a decision, Fiona visits Adam in the hospital—an encounter that stirs long-buried feelings in her and powerful new emotions in the boy. Her judgment has momentous consequences for them both.

December's Book of the Month is Necessary Lies


December 2016's Book of the Month is "Necessary Lies"
Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain is our featured title for December.  Copies are available in the "New" room on the upper level of the library.

About the Book
It is 1960 in North Carolina and the lives of Ivy Hart and Jane Forrester couldn't be more different. Fifteen-year-old Ivy lives with her family as tenants on a small tobacco farm, but when her parents die, Ivy is left to care for her grandmother, older sister, and nephew. As she struggles with her grandmother's aging, her sister's mental illness, and her own epilepsy, she realizes they might need more than she can give.

When Jane Forrester takes a position as Grace County's newest social worker, she is given the task of recommending which of her clients should be sterilized without their knowledge or consent. The state's rationalization is that if her clients are poor, or ill, or deemed in some way "unfit" they should not be allowed to have children. But soon Jane becomes emotionally invested in her clients' lives, causing tension with her new husband and her supervisors. No one understands why Jane would want to become a caseworker for the Department of Public Health when she could be a housewife and Junior League member. As Jane is drawn in by the Hart women, she begins to discover the secrets of the small farm—secrets much darker than she would have guessed. Soon, she must decide whether to take drastic action to help them, or risk losing a life-changing battle.

Get Discounted Tickets to Going to See the Kid with the Merrimack Repertory Theatre


Request the library's activity pass to receive $10 off the ticket price of up to 6 tickets to see Going to See the Kid, running now through December 24th. 

About the Play
On the assignment of a lifetime, two reporters head for Florida at Christmastime, trying to land a final interview with aging Red Sox legend Ted Williams. One's a rookie; the other, a seasoned pro. And both will learn the inestimable value of teammates— on and off the field. A loving testament to the light that shines on long after the last pitch is thrown, and the holiday spirit that overcomes any distance.



Q&A with playwright Steven Drukman and director Alexander Greenfield.
