This intense new novel follows a middle-aged man as he contends with a past he has never much thought about until his oldest friends return with a vengeance, one of them from the grave another maddeningly present. Tony Webster thought he’d left all of this behind as he built a life for himself, and by now his marriage and family and career have fallen into an amicable divorce and retirement. But he is then presented with a mysterious legacy that obliges him to reconsider various things, and to revise his estimation of his own nature and his place in the world.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

Lee, Harper. Go Set a Watchman

May 4, 2016, at 7 p.m.Lee, Harper. Go Set a Watchman 

Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.

Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch—Scout—struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.

Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee’s enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.

Front Row Seat to History with Edward N. Eisen

 

Sunday, September 20, 2-3:30 p.m.

Register for this FREE program in the Library Office, Abington Free Library, call 215-885-5180, ext. 15, email: kmcinnis@mclinc.org or online here.

“What most of us read in newspapers or watch on TV — in time becomes — history. Yet some of us over the years have had the remarkable good fortune of recording that history. And so it was with me.”

Ed has worked in radio, televison, and public relations. He was a top 40 DJ, a TV producer, booth announcer, career counselor and read books for the blind. He was the first person of the Jewish faith chosen to represent two popes during the 41 International Eucharistic Congress.

In 1975, he met and ate chicken soup with Mother Teresa at the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. On another occasion, boxing champ Joe Frazier autographed his glove, scrawling the words: “To Ed Eisen, Boogie, Boogie. Joe Frazier.” The glove sits in a treasured spot in the Eisens’ library.

As a reporter for three major metros – The Philadelphia Inquirer, the former Philadelphia Bulletin and The Fort Lauderdale News, Eisen had a front-row seat to history. 

Two years before the assassination of Martin Luther King, he interviewed the civil rights leader at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Philadelphia.

He is the recipient of a number of journalism awards, top among them was a Freedoms Foundation Award for an article written in 1957. It was titled, “My Job: Protecting America’s Freedoms.” The piece was written while Ed was stationed in Karlsruhe, Germany with the 7th U.S. Army.

Ed is also the author of a book subtitled: Soul for Sale: Confessions of a Philadelphia Spin Doctor. The memoir cautions young people seeking careers in high paying jobs to think twice before going for the gold. “You may regret that decision,” he warns. “Go for what makes you want to get up in the morning and run to work. I did. And I never looked back,” he says. The book is available for free on the Internet.

Lee, Harper. Go Set a Watchman

May 4, 2016, at 7 p.m.Lee, Harper. Go Set a Watchman 

Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.

Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch—Scout—struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.

Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee’s enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right. 

- HarperCollins Publishers

Life Coaching

 

WhistleThursday, October 22, from 7 - 8:30 p.m.

with Yosaif August, Jan Felgoise, Georgeanne Ford, Jill Magerman and Ray Rice

The first thing that the term Coaching brings to mind is sports! But there is another Coaching experience sweeping the country for the past ten years; it’s Life Coaching.

A Life Coach helps an individual develop changes in careers, education or challenging issues. The individual works with a trained coach in a confidential partnership which is loaded with encouragement to develop accountabliity for the tasks the party hopes to achieve, change or improve. 

Our panel of five, each with a unique Coaching speciality, will offer examples of how we have helped our clients successfully achieve new goals.

A stellar part of the evening will be an actual “laser” Coaching demonstration to illustrate just what a sample Coaching session looks like using a volunteer from the audience.

So, for new information about what’s the latest and how Coaching can impact your plans for the future, join our session at your Abington Library.

Register for this FREE event. Email kmcinnis@mclinc.org, go online or sign up in the Library Office, (215-885-5180, ext. 15)

Lee, Harper. Go Set a Watchman

May 4, 2016, at 7 p.m.Lee, Harper. Go Set a Watchman 

Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.

Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch—Scout—struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.

Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee’s enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.

In Memoriam: Read about our friend and founder of the WWII Lecture Series, Donald E. Lee here in this PDF from the Ab Lib Newsletter from the Fall of 2006.

Thank you, Tom Brennan, for all you do for the Lecture Series, thus keeping Don Lee's dream alive!
