This book series is in honor of the Pulitzer Prize Centennial: A Vermont Humanities Council Program sponsored by the Friends of the Jeudevine Library. July 9th the book will be ANGELA’S ASHES by Frank McCourt with the discussion led by Jim Schley. Schley is sure to bring new nuance to this book that became a huge bestseller when it was released in 1996. Even if you have already read this book, Jim Schley will bring greater understanding. Schley who holds a bachelor’s degree in English and Native American Studies from Dartmouth College and an MFA in poetry from Warren Wilson College, has edited more than a hundred books on a wide variety of subjects. He is the author of a poetry chapbook, One Another and a full-length book of poems, As When, In Season. "Worse than the ordinary miserable childhood is the miserable Irish childhood," writes Frank McCourt in Angela's Ashes. "Worse yet is the miserable Irish Catholic childhood." This sums up the memoir, but the greater discussion is about migration to the United States. When the Irish came, they were not welcomed. This book will open the discussion about that feature of this book series.

23 logo MARK AND CINDY LEMAIRE at The Music Box in Craftsbury
Time: 8 PM
Price: $10 general, kids under 16 free!
Location: The Music Box, 147 Creek Rd, Craftsbury
Description: Mark Lemaire is known for his unique guitar style: he incorporates masterful fingerpicking, slap-and-tap harmonics, hand percussion, and a delicate touch that goes straight to your heart. While Mark's solo guitar pieces stand as complete statements, his harmonies with Cindy Lemaire are so perfectly matched that they seem like two people with one voice. At a show, audiences do a lot of laughing, but many are also moved to tears. The material runs from tongue-in-cheek songs about married life to stories of the strange surprise of middle age creeping up on us. The music ranges from subtle, pin-drop delicate solo guitar to raucous sing-alongs. While the music is beautiful, the experience of simply being together is a key part of the evening. Folks leave at the end both grinning and fulfilled…. Mark’s music is informed by his years as a recording engineer and producer for everyone from the San Francisco Symphony to Rolling Stones’ producer Jimmy Miller. Mark and Cindy tour the US, Sweden, England and Scotland. Besides Cindy’s supple onstage harmonies, her voice rings clearly in her role as a New Urbanist/ city planner, making downtowns friendlier for walkers and bicyclists. With three albums released, as well as a new album of solo guitar coming in summer 2016, Mark and Cindy are a pleasure to listen to and fun to just be with. Find them at www.marklemaire.com
