MYSTERY BOOK DISCUSSION – Death In Brittany by  Jean-Luc Bannalec

Thursday, May 19th, 2022 at 3pm

At the Central Hotel in Pont-Aven, Brittany, ninety-one-year-old manager Pierre-Louis Pennec is found murdered. Commissaire Georges Dupin and his team take on the investigation and narrow the list of suspects down to five people, including a rising political star, a longtime friend of the victim and a wealthy art historian. Further incidents – first a break-in, then another mysterious death – muddy the waters yet more. As Commissaire Dupin delves further and further into the lives of the victim and the suspects, he uncovers a web of secrecy and silence that belies the village’s idyllic image.

BOOK DISCUSSION – The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom

Monday, May 23rd, 2022 at 4pm in the Library Garden

Narrated by the voice of Music itself, the story follows Frankie Presto, a war orphan born in a burning church, through his extraordinary journey around the world. Raised by a blind guitar teacher in Spain and gifted with a talent to change people’s lives—using six mysterious blue strings—Frankie navigates the musical landscape of the twentieth century, from the 1950s jazz scene to the Grand Ole Opry to Elvis mania and Woodstock, all the while searching for his childhood love.

As he becomes a famous star, he loses his way, until tragedy steals his ability to play the guitar that had so defined him. Overwhelmed by his loss, Frankie disappears for decades, reemerging late in life for one spectacular yet mystifying farewell.

Part love story, part magical mystery, The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto is Mitch Albom at his finest, a Forrest Gump-like epic about one man’s journey to discover what truly matters and the power of talent to change our lives.

BOOK DISCUSSION – And the Mountains Echoed  by Khaled Hosseni

Monday, July 25th, 2022 at 4pm in the Library Garden

Khaled Hosseini, the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, has written a new novel about how we love, how we take care of one another, and how the choices we make resonate through generations. In this tale revolving around not just parents and children but brothers and sisters, cousins and caretakers, Hosseini explores the many ways in which families nurture, wound, betray, honor, and sacrifice for one another; and how often we are surprised by the actions of those closest to us, at the times that matter most. Following its characters and the ramifications of their lives and choices and loves around the globe—from Kabul to Paris to San Francisco to the Greek island of Tinos—the story expands gradually outward, becoming more emotionally complex and powerful with each turning page.

AUTHOR TALK: MARY KORPI

 Sunday, August 28th, 2022 at 3pm in the Community Room

Please join us in our Community Room as we host local, acclaimed author, Mary Korpi.

The Lady Lighthouse Keeper – by Mary Korpi

Published by lulu.com in February 2022 and available through the publisher, on Amazon, and local booksellers, as well as the Suffolk County Library System.

The reader will experience life on the North Fork of Long Island in the 1800s against the backdrop of the rigor required to maintain a lighthouse, Horton Point.

A fictionalized account based on the life of Stella Maria Prince Terry, the only woman to serve as a lighthouse keeper at Horton Point Lighthouse.  Stella lived at the lighthouse for more than 1/2 of her life from 1871 when she was three years of age until she married at 37.  A remarkable woman who resists society’s expectations and dedicates herself to a life of hard work out of a sense of duty.

This is Mary Korpi’s first foray into historical fiction.  She is a recent retiree to the North Fork and a docent at Horton Point Lighthouse.  Researching the lighthouse keepers, she discovered Stella. Stella’s work is yet to be recognized by the federal government, a fact that Mrs. Korpi hopes to change in the near future.

Books will be available for purchase at the event and refreshments will be served.

BOOK DISCUSSION – The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

Monday, August 29th, 2022 at 4pm in the Library Garden

A bestselling modern classic—both poignant and funny—about a boy with autism who sets out to solve the murder of a neighbor’s dog and discovers unexpected truths about himself and the world.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. He relates well to animals but has no understanding of human emotions. He cannot stand to be touched. And he detests the color yellow.

This improbable story of Christopher’s quest to investigate the suspicious death of a neighborhood dog makes for one of the most captivating, unusual, and widely heralded novels in recent years.
