BOOKLASTIC BOOK CLUB: MY DEAR HAMILTON

We’re not fantastic…we’re booklastic!

Booklastic meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our June read is My Dear Hamilton, by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie. Check out the plot summary below!

“Coming of age on the perilous frontier of revolutionary New York, Elizabeth Schuyler champions the fight for independence. And when she meets Alexander Hamilton, Washington’s penniless but passionate aide-de-camp, she’s captivated by the young officer’s charisma and brilliance. They fall in love, despite Hamilton’s bastard birth and the uncertainties of war.

But the union they create—in their marriage and the new nation—is far from perfect. From glittering inaugural balls to bloody street riots, the Hamiltons are at the center of it all—including the political treachery of America’s first sex scandal, which forces Eliza to struggle through heartbreak and betrayal to find forgiveness.

When a duel destroys Eliza’s hard-won peace, the grieving widow fights her husband’s enemies to preserve Alexander’s legacy. But long-buried secrets threaten everything Eliza believes about her marriage and her own legacy. Questioning her tireless devotion to the man and country that have broken her heart, she’s left with one last battle—to understand the flawed man she married and imperfect union he could never have created without her…”

BOOKLASTIC BOOK CLUB: RADIUM GIRLS

We’re not fantastic…we’re booklastic!

Booklastic meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our July read is Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women, by Kate Moore. Check out the plot summary below!

“The Curies’ newly discovered element of radium makes gleaming headlines across the nation as the fresh face of beauty, and wonder drug of the medical community. From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War.

Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these “shining girls” are the luckiest alive — until they begin to fall mysteriously ill.

But the factories that once offered golden opportunities are now ignoring all claims of the gruesome side effects, and the women’s cries of corruption. And as the fatal poison of the radium takes hold, the brave shining girls find themselves embroiled in one of the biggest scandals of America’s early 20th century, and in a groundbreaking battle for workers’ rights that will echo for centuries to come.”

But upon her arrival, Shalini is brought face to face with Kashmir’s politics, as well as the tangled history of the local family that takes her in. And when life in the village turns volatile and old hatreds threaten to erupt into violence, Shalini finds herself forced to make a series of choices that could hold dangerous repercussions for the very people she has come to love.”

BOOKLASTIC BOOK CLUB: KILLERS OF THE FLOWER MOON

We’re not fantastic…we’re booklastic!

Booklastic meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our September read is Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI by David Grann. Check out the plot summary below!

“In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, the Osage rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. One of her relatives was shot. Another was poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more Osage were dying under mysterious circumstances, and many of those who dared to investigate the killings were themselves murdered. 

As the death toll rose, the newly created FBI took up the case, and the young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to try to unravel the mystery. White put together an undercover team, including a Native American agent who infiltrated the region, and together with the Osage began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history.”

BOOKLASTIC BOOK CLUB: THE IMMORTALISTS

Booklastic meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our April read is The Immortalists, by Chloe Benjamin. Check out the plot summary below!

If you knew the date of your death, how would you live your life?

It’s 1969 in New York City’s Lower East Side, and word has spread of the arrival of a mystical woman, a traveling psychic who claims to be able to tell anyone the day they will die. The Gold children–four adolescents on the cusp of self-awareness–sneak out to hear their fortunes.

The prophecies inform their next five decades. Golden boy Simon escapes to the West Coast, searching for love in ’80s San Francisco; dreamy Klara becomes a Las Vegas magician obsessed with blurring reality and fantasy; eldest son Daniel struggles to maintain security as an army doctor post-9/11; and bookish Varya throws herself into longevity research, where she tests the boundary between science and immortality.”

FRIENDS’ LECTURE SERIES: GOOD GRIEF: EMBRACING LIFE & GIVING GOOD SUPPORT

5:00 PM17:00

FRIENDS’ LECTURE SERIES: GOOD GRIEF: EMBRACING LIFE & GIVING GOOD SUPPORT

Grief and providing good support for those grieving are difficult topics we tend to shy away from, often out of fear we will drive others away with our own grief or we will say the wrong thing to those who are grieving. In this lecture we will get cozy with grief, recognizing it is an inevitable part of life.

The purpose of the lecture is to empower the grieving to find hope and ways to navigate through the tunnel of grief and shed light on the process for those supporting loved ones. It will also offer ways to create a partnership between the griever and their support systems. Both overarching thoughts and practical tools will be on tap, so have your pens ready!

This free event is made possible by the Friends of the North Shore Library at Princeville as part of the Dotty Nakea Memorial Speaker Program and  ʻOhana Oasis.

BOOKLASTIC BOOK CLUB: THE GIRL FROM OTO

We’re not fantastic…we’re booklastic!

Booklastic meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our March read is The Girl from Oto, a work of fiction by Amy Maroney. Check out the plot summary below!

2015: When art historian Zari Durrell scores a coveted position in Scotland researching the life and work of artist Cornelia van der Zee, she decodes clues hidden in two 16th-century portraits. Originally attributed to Van der Zee, the paintings contain traces of another artist entirely: a mysterious young woman named Mira. Risking both her professional reputation and safety, Zari tracks Mira along the pilgrim’s route of Camino de Santiago in the rugged Pyrenees mountains—and plunges deep into the past.

1500: Mira’s own harrowing tale unfolds as Zari’s quest to uncover the truth intensifies. Born during a time wracked by war, plague, and shifting political boundaries, Mira grows up in a Pyrenees convent believing she is an orphan, unaware of the dark secret in her past. Inexplicably, she is singled out to receive an education normally reserved for men, including training in the arts. But when her peaceful existence is shattered, Mira must brave the world beyond the convent’s gates to learn the devastating story of her origins—and find the strength to face those who would destroy her.”

BOOKLASTIC BOOK CLUB: LAKOTA WOMAN

We’re not fantastic…we’re booklastic!

Booklastic meets on the last Wednesday of every month. Our February read is Lakota Woman, a memoir by Mary Brave Bird. Check out the plot summary below!

“Mary Brave Bird grew up fatherless in a one-room cabin, without running water or electricity, on a South Dakota reservation. Rebelling against the aimless drinking, punishing missionary school, narrow strictures for women, and violence and hopelessness of reservation life, she joined the new movement of tribal pride sweeping Native American communities in the sixties and seventies and eventually married Leonard Crow Dog, the movement’s chief medicine man, who revived the sacred but outlawed Ghost Dance.

Lakota Woman is a unique document unparalleled in American Indian literature, a story of death, of determination against all odds, and of the cruelties perpetrated against American Indians during the last several decades. It is also a deeply moving account of a woman’s triumphant struggle to survive in a hostile world.”
