Tuesday, May 28 - 3:00 pm
ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE
IS A TOUR DE FORCE, an important work of history as it was lived, a narrative
of multiple betrayals on both sides of the Cold War that ends with triumph and
a new beginning in America.
In this true-life thriller Kati Marton, an award-winning
journalist, exposes the cruel mechanics of the Communist Terror State using the
secret police files on her parents, as well as dozens of interviews that reveal
how her family was spied on and betrayed by friends, colleagues, and even their
childrens babysitter. In this moving and brave memoir, Marton searches for and
finds her parents and love.
Defending Jacob By William Landay
Not Open To Public
Tuesday, June 25 - 3:00 pm
Andy Barber has been an assistant district attorney in his
suburban Massachusetts county for more than twenty years. He is respected in
his community, tenacious in the courtroom, and happy at home with his wife,
Laurie, and son, Jacob. But when a shocking crime shatters their New England
town, Andy is blindsided by what happens next: His fourteen-year-old son is
charged with the murder of a fellow student.
Every parental instinct Andy has rallies to protect his boy.
Jacob insists that he is innocent, and Andy believes him. Andy must. He’s his
father. But as damning facts and shocking revelations surface, as a marriage
threatens to crumble and the trial intensifies, as the crisis reveals how
little a father knows about his son, Andy will face a trial of his own —
between loyalty and justice, between truth and allegation, between a past he's
tried to bury and a future he cannot conceive.
Award-winning author William Landay has written the
consummate novel of an embattled family in crisis — a suspenseful,
character-driven mystery that is also a spellbinding tale of guilt, betrayal,
and the terrifying speed at which our lives can spin out of control.
