Adult Book Group- Blink by Malcolm Gladwell
Event Location:
Contact: Amy Inglis   603 664-0193
director@barringtonlibrary.com
Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant-in the blink of an eye-that actually Blinkaren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work-in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others?

In Blink we meet the psychologist who has learned to predict whether a marriage will last, based on a few minutes of observing a couple; the tennis coach who knows when a player will double-fault before the racket even makes contact with the ball; the antiquities experts who recognize a fake at a glance. Here, too, are great failures of "blink": the election of Warren Harding; "New Coke"; and the shooting of Amadou Diallo by police.

Blink reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of "thin-slicing"-filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of variables.

Copies of the book will be available for checkout one month prior to the meeting.

A Visit with Queen Victoria: A Living History Performance

 

In 1837, teenaged Victoria ascended to the British throne, untrained and innocent. Those who would try to usurp her power underestimated this self-willed intelligent young woman whose mettle sustained her through her 63-year reign. Using Queen Victoria’s diary and letters, this program reveals the personal details of a powerful yet humane woman, who took seriously her role as monarch in a time of great expansion. She and her husband, Albert, set an example of high moral character and dedication, a novelty in the royal house after generations of scandal. Through her children she left a royal legacy; an era bears her name. Sally Mummey performs this living history in proper 19th Century clothing resplendent with Royal Orders.
This program is provided through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities Council.


In conjunction with this event, patrons may read the book below before the event...get a taste of the era and then join us to meet the Queen herself!

Windsor Castle, 1861.
Prince Albert, the Queen’s Consort, lies dying, and Victoria summons Patrick Fitzgerald, the clever, embittered Irish barrister who helped defend Her Majesty from a would-be assassin Flaw in the Bloodtwenty years earlier. Within hours, Fitzgerald’s beautiful ward is nearly murdered, his chambers are ransacked, and another girl lies dead. Could an unknown force at Windsor want Fitzgerald silenced? And why? The answers are entangled in an electrifying tale of intrigue, seduction, and betrayal, partially narrated by Europe’s most powerful monarch.

Copies of the book will be available for checkout one month prior to the meeting.

Adult Book Group- Open and Shut by David Rosenfelt
Event Location: Library Meeting Room
Contact: Amy Inglis   603 664-0193
director@barringtonlibrary.com
Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But Andy prefers the company of his best friend, Tara, to the people he encounters in the courtroom. Tara, a golden retriever, is clearly smarter than half the lawyers who clog the courts of Passaic County. However, just as it seems Andy has everything figured out, his dad, New Jersey's legendary ex-D.A., drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium. The shocks pile on as he discovers his dad left him with two unexpected legacies: a fortune of $22 million that Andy never knew existed . . . and a murder case with enough racial tinder to burn down City Hall. Struggling to serve justice and bring honor to his father, Andy must dig up some explosive political skeletons-and an astonishing family secret that can close his case (and his mouth) for good.


Copies of the book will be available for checkout one month prior to the meeting.

Author Dinner with David Rosenfelt

October 25th 6PM at Nippo Lake Golf Course to Benefit "Mary’s Dog’s” of Deerfield NH

Further information on costs, food, and other activities for the evening…coming soon!

http://www.marysdogs.com/

About fourteen years ago, he and his wife started the Tara Foundation, named in honor of the greatest Golden Retriever the world has ever known. They rescued almost 4,000 dogs, many of them Goldens, and found them loving homes. Their own home quickly became a sanctuary for those dogs that they rescued that were too old or sickly to be wanted by others. It’s total lunacy, but it works, and they are a happy, safe group

The library will have book displays of his works and we’ll be doing our monthly discussion in October around the first book in his series featuring Andy Carpenter. These are legal thrillers that also incorporate the author’s love of dogs.

Adult Book Group- Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin
Event Location: Library Meeting Room
Contact: Amy Inglis   603 664-0193
director@barringtonlibrary.com
Max Walker is a golden boy. Attractive, intelligent, and athletic, he’s the perfect son, the perfect friend, and the perfect crush for the girls in his school. He’s even really nice to his little brother. Karen, Max’s mother, is determined to maintain the façade of effortless excellence she has constructed through the years, but now that the boys are getting older, she worries that the façade might soon begin to crumble. Adding to the tension, her husband Steve has chosen this moment to stand for election to Parliament. The spotlight of the media is about to encircle their lives.

The Walkers are hiding something, you see. Max is special. Max is different. Max is intersex. When an enigmatic childhood friend named Hunter steps out of his past and abuses his trust in the worst possible way, Max is forced to consider the nature of his well-kept secret. Why won’t his parents talk about it? What else are they hiding from Max about his condition and from each other? The deeper Max goes, the more questions emerge about where it all leaves him and what his future holds, especially now that he’s starting to fall head over heels for someone for the first time in his life. Will his friends accept him if he is no longer the Golden Boy? Will anyone ever want him—desire him—once they know? And the biggest one of all, the question he has to look inside himself to answer: Who is Max Walker, really?

Adult Book Group- The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
Event Location: Library Meeting Room
Contact: Amy Inglis   603 664-0193
director@barringtonlibrary.com
Chicago, 1920: Hadley Richardson is a quiet twenty-eight-year-old who has all but given up on love and happiness—until she meets Ernest Hemingway. Following a whirlwind courtship and wedding, the pair set sail for Paris, where they become the golden couple in a lively and volatile group—the fabled "Lost Generation”—that includes Gertrude Stein, Ezra Pound, and F. Scott Fitzgerald.
 
Though deeply in love, the Hemingways are ill prepared for the hard-drinking, fast-living, and free-loving life of Jazz Age Paris. As Ernest struggles to find the voice that will earn him a place in history and pours himself into the novel that will become The Sun Also Rises, Hadley strives to hold on to her sense of self as her roles as wife, friend, and muse become more challenging. Eventually they find themselves facing the ultimate crisis of their marriage—a deception that will lead to the unraveling of everything they’ve fought so hard for.
 
A heartbreaking portrayal of love and torn loyalty, The Paris Wife is all the more poignant because we know that, in the end, Hemingway wrote that he would rather have died than fallen in love with anyone but Hadley.
 
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Copies of the book will be available for checkout one month prior to the meeting.
