All College Book Club:
“An audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse, Station Eleven tells the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity.” –Goodreads.

Jane Booth: Spirits of Place
Message from Jane: “Spirits of Place is an evolving collection of evocative images made in Newbury, Vermont, one of the first towns settled along the Connecticut River. My husband, David, and I moved to Newbury nearly six years ago, settling into a historic brick Cape on the backside of the Newbury Village common.”
“When not working with my hands — creating and tending a myriad of gardens both perennial and vegetable (and finding artifacts in the soil from days gone by) or working on our 1834 home — I’ve been documenting my town in a mystical, magical, dreamlike way, wandering quiet roads, striding through the silence of fulgent valley fog to catch fleeting glimpses of vernacular landscapes where heirloom apple trees still fruit in abandoned one-room schoolhouse lawns and livestock still graze in verdant valleys.”

The Oil Paintings of Louise J. Arnold
Message from Louise: “I am a landscape painter with a background in Landscape Architecture. I work both en plein air and from my photographs, painting the New England landscapes with which I have great familiarity. My subject matter ranges from mountains and streams to barns, abandoned farm machinery and cars, which are prevalent features in many of the landscapes that I paint. I am interested in capturing the character or spirit of specific places, and in exploring how the qualities of those places affect me as an artist working in them. The paintings that result have evolved from this exploration and engagement.”
Louise’s paintings are on display through January 10, 2019.
Contact the library with any questions or for more details on any of these events.
