Set on an island off the coast of New England in the summer of 1965, Moonrise Kingdom tells the story of two twelve-year-olds who fall in love, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. As various authorities try to hunt them down, a violent storm is brewing off-shore — and the peaceful island community is turned upside down in more ways than anyone can handle. Popcorn and lemonade.

An open letter was released September 24 by American Library Association (ALA) President Maureen Sullivan regarding the refusal of Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, and Penguin to provide access to their ebooks in US libraries: “If our libraries’ digital bookshelves mirrored the New York Times fiction bestseller list, we would be missing half of our collection any given week due to these publishers’ policies. The popular Bared to You and The Glass Castle are not available in libraries because libraries cannot purchase them at any price.” The Association of American Publishers issued a response to the letter on September 25. David Rothman offers some insight at TeleRead.

For the month of October, 2012, the Brewster Ladies’ Library will be hosting an art exhibit by Elizabeth Hogan. The public is invited to an artist’s reception at the library on Friday, October 12 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
Hogan works in paint, pigment, pastel, and organic materials. She usually has several paintings in progress at once, and often does not decide what their subjects will be until the many layers have dried and the resulting painting has had time to “sit and simmer.” Then, finally, she integrates an identifiable image with the abstract background of each painting. The result is a blend that has led some to call Hogan an “abstract realist.”
This exhibit is sponsored by the Brewster Ladies’ Library. Admission is free, and all are welcome. For more information, please call the library at (508) 896-3913.
