Book Club - All He E
Book Club - All He Ever Wanted
Jacob Edwards Library
Monday, May. 1, 6:30 - 7:30 pm
The book club will discuss All He Ever Wanted by Anita Shreve:

"A marriage is always two intersecting stories." This realization comes perhaps too late to the husband of Etna Bliss-a man whose obsession with his young wife begins at the moment of their first meeting, as he helps Etna and her companions escape from a fire in a hotel restaurant, and culminates in a marriage doomed by secrets and betrayal. Written with the intelligence and grace that are the hallmarks of Anita Shreve's bestselling novels, this gripping tale of desire, jealousy, and loss is peopled by unforgettable characters as real as the emotions that bring them together.

This is a no-commitment book club, attend as many or as few meetings as you like! The group meets on the first Monday of every month. 
Extra copies of the book coming up for discussion are available at the Information Desk for checkout.

Opening Reception: Joan Erickson & Ruth Bolton
Jacob Edwards Library
Thursday, May. 4, 6:30 - 7:30 pm
For the month of May, local artists Ruth Bolton and Joan Erickson will exhibit their artwork. A reception for the artists will be held on Thursday, May 4th at 6:30 pm. We hope to see you there!

Ruth Bolton (aka Brand) has a BFA in painting from RISD where she won the nation-wide entrance scholarship and a life drawing prize. She played the lead in two plays in her senior year and continued in her life with acting, building with wood, puppeteering and currently writing. For this exhibit she is displaying mostly flower paintings in honor of the season and her 89th birthday. In a glass case will be printouts of her other paintings sold as cards, her self-bound books (learned while working 17 years at OSV along with knitting, ash-basket and other skills.)
 
Joan Erickson is an artist and poet now living in Worcester, having recently moved from West Brookfield. She has studied at many places, including adult courses at the Worcester Art Museum, watercolor courses on location in Kennebunkport, ME and received a BFA from U-Mass, Amherst. She has exhibited her work in shows and galleries in New England. She has had poems published and reads them in local venues and coffee houses. She is hanging a variety of her subjects - flowers, landscapes, and still lifes. She will also include some poems to go with the paintings.
