September 26th – Author Talk – Lisa Duffy This is Home

Sixteen-year-old Libby Winters lives in a seaside town north of Boston called Paradise, a town that rarely lives up to its name. After the death of her mother, Libby lives in the middle apartment of a triple decker with her father and two aunts that live on the top floor. Her father works nights as a policeman, so Libby shuffles back and forth from her apartment to her aunt’s apartment which leaves her wishing for a home of her very own.

In This is Home, the latest novel from author and Kingston resident Lisa Duffy, a new tenant moves in to the first floor apartment. Quinn Ellis is at a crossroads because her husband, who is a war veteran suffering from PTSD, is missing. Despite Libby’s father trying to make Quinn feel welcome, Libby feels quite differently about the new tenant. But soon enough, an unlikely friendship begins to blossom between the two.

She will speak at the Kingston Council on Aging, 30 Evergreen Street.

 

October 3rd – Author Talk – Dan Kennedy The Return of the Moguls

In 1993 the Boston Globe was sold to The New York Times Company for a cool $1.1 billion. Twenty years later, they resold it for just $70 million to John Henry, the principle owner of the Boston Red Sox. Henry inspired optimism in Boston because of his track record as a public-spirited business executive, which seemed to ensure that the shrunken newspaper would not be subjected to further downsizing. In just a few days, the sale of the Globe was overtaken by much bigger news. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and one of the world’s richest people, bought the Washington Post for $250 million.

In The Return of the Moguls: How Jeff Bezos and John Henry are Remaking Newspapers for the Twenty-First Century, Dan Kennedy tells the story of how, over the course of a generation, the daily newspaper has seen an unchecked slide from record profitability and readership to plummeting profits and increasing irrelevance. The newspaper business is at a perilous crossroads. This essential book explains why and how today’s new crop of media moguls might help it to survive.

He will speak at the Kingston Council on Aging, 30 Evergreen Street.
