Sci-Fi Book Club

Sci-Fi Book Club

The Cotuit Library Sci-Fi Book Club is meeting once again for some stellar book discussing. This month we will be reading a modern classic from writing master Neil Gaiman: The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Copies will be available for checkout at the Library and in ebook form on the Libby app leading up to the event.

“Sussex, England. A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn't thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she'd claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.

“Forty years earlier, a man committed suicide in a stolen car at this farm at the end of the road. Like a fuse on a firework, his death lit a touchpaper and resonated in unimaginable ways. The darkness was unleashed, something scary and thoroughly incomprehensible to a little boy. And Lettie—magical, comforting, wise beyond her years—promised to protect him, no matter what.”

Together, the flower and the broomstick whisk Mary above the clouds, and far away to Endor College -- a school of magic run by headmistress Madam Mumblechook and the brilliant Doctor Dee. But there are terrible things happening at the school, and when Mary tells a lie, she must risk her life to try and set things right.”

View the arbor with climbing roses, the hedges along the property, and a large vegetable garden. Not to be missed is the glorious 57 year old trumpet vine planted by the current owners’ grandparents in 1962.While there are no hydrangeas on the property, the perennial gardens have essentially remained the same since 1929. A family member states, “…the Big House has been long famed for it’s 100 year old roses, now well past that venerable age and still a sight to behold”.  The owners are instructing the roses to be in perfect bloom for your viewing pleasure!Visitors are invited to walk through the yard and down the grass driveway to view additional gardens and views at house #49. The family requests you do not visit the red house at #39 as it is not part of the tour.

Sweeping Vistas
59 Otter Lane, Barnstable VillageParking:  Please park on right side of the circle or on street as space allows.This lovely, newly built seaside home is at the end of a quiet lane in the Cummaquid section of Barnstable. As you enter this beautiful property, notice the stunning specimen of a Bloodgood Japanese maple tree and ornamental shrubs that frame the front of the house. Notice the house details including the Cape Cod cutout!Enter the back yard through the gate on the right. Hydrangeas aplenty surround the property, adding to the glorious views of the bay and marshes and the Keveney Lane bridge.A large stone patio, roses and sea grasses complement this stunning setting.  Words are not necessary to describe the views and serenity of this property.

The garden plantings and specimens, including but not limited to irises, young hollies, bee balms, Japanese maples, red twig dogwoods, ginkgoes, butterfly bushes, and over 100 varieties of daylillies, are too numerous to list. Fortunately, the owner has meticulously labeled her plantings to help us navigate the setting.Scattered throughout the property are her handcrafted sculptures and benches created from cherry and cedar wood. These objects alone are worth the visit! Additional ceramic pieces from Scargo Pottery and Barnstable Pottery add color as well, as do the whimsical “flowers” found throughout the gardens.Finally, at the rear of the property, one enjoys the tranquil views of Barnstable Harbor and marvels at the sacred space created to honor the history of the area.

Books for Idle Hours: Nineteenth-Century Publishers and the Birth of the Beach Read

A prominent nineteenth-century preacher branded summer reading as “literary poison in August.” Today, though, the practice is celebrated as lists like O magazine’s “Best Summer Reads” take center stage. Based on the new book, Books for Idle Hours: Nineteenth-Century Publishing and the Rise of Summer Reading (February 2019), this talk explores the birth of the “beach read” and the practice of summer reading in the nineteenth century, tracing the ways in which readers, authors, and publishing houses came to frame summer reading not as a disreputable indulgence, but as a respectable pastime especially for the woman reader.

Donna Harrington-Lueker is a professor in the Department of English and Communications at Salve Regina University

Free to the public. Registration is appreciated! Email sturgisreference@comcast.net, call 508-362-6636, or online at http://www.sturgislibrary.org/event2/the-history-of-summer-reading/
