Book Group
Please join us September 24th at 10 am for coffee and bagels to discuss the book, Missing, Presumed, by Susie Steiner.

Cookbook Club September 21st at 6 pm
 Do you love sharing conversation over a meal? Do you love trying new recipes and experimenting with new flavors? This book club is for you! Each month we will all cook from the same cookbook and bring our dishes to a potluck-style dinner at the library. It’s a great way to enjoy the full range of a cookbook while only making one dish. For September we will be cooking all things Apple!

The library will have apple cookbooks available to check out. Please bring your own dishes, silverware, cups, etc. (although we will have some on hand just in case). Please RSVP at newmarlborough@gmail.com

Sponsored by South Berkshire Kids and Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care.

Author Visit October 8th at 1 pm
Please join us for a discussion and signing of Professor Daniel Medwed’s new book, Barred: Why the Innocent Can’t Get Out of Prison.

A groundbreaking exposé of how our legal system makes it nearly impossible to overturn wrongful convictions. Thousands of innocent people are behind bars in the United States. But proving their innocence and winning their release is nearly impossible.

Professor Medwed, a leading authority on criminal law, focuses his research and pro bono activities around the topic of wrongful convictions. His book, Barred: Why the Innocent Can’t Get Out of Prison, explores the range of procedural barriers that so often prevent innocent prisoners from obtaining exoneration. Professor Medwed is a founding member of the board of directors of the Innocence Network, a consortium of innocence projects throughout the world, and a former president of the board of directors of the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center. He currently serves on the board of the New England Innocence Project and the legal analyst for GBH News, Boston’s local NPR and PBS affiliate.

Books will be available for purchase.
