Return to Viet Nam: POW/MIA Recovery Mission

Photo-of-recovery-mission-teamMonday, June 19th, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Join us at the library for a very unique program. Michael H. Cunningham, a longtime Norwood resident, Viet Nam veteran, retired U. S. Customs official, and author of numerous books about Viet Nam and homeland security, has recently returned to Viet Nam on a recovery mission with the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA.) On this trip, Cunningham and the POW/MIA team searched a mountainous area west of Tam Ky, Viet Nam for the remains of a fallen soldier lost in a horrific battle on July 29, 1968.

Cunningham’s presentation tells the story of America’s loss and attempt to recover the remains of this fallen hero. In this touching and heartfelt story, you will witness the endless means our country goes to in an effort to bring all her fighting men and women home. Please register for this program by calling 781-769-0200 x110 or 222, filling out the form below, or visiting the Reference or Information desk in the library.

Titles on Tap Book Group – June

Everything-I-Never-Told-You-book-coverTuesday, June 27th, 2017 at 7:30 pm

Our book for June will be “Everything I Never Told You” by Celeste Ng. Set in Newfoundland in the 1800s, this tale of magical realism tracks family drama in a moving, character-driven saga with some Canadian folklore thrown in for good measure. Copies of the book and audiobook are available at the Reference Desk, and the audiobook is also available for instant download through hoopla digital and through Overdrive. Pick up a copy, read it, and join us on 6/27 @ 7:30 pm!

Titles on Tap is a social book group for readers in their 20s and 30s and for the young at heart. We go in for stories that are shaken, not stirred, and we don’t mind taking our love of lit outside the library walls. Titles on Tap meets once a month in the left-hand bar of Napper Tandy’s to eat, drink, be merry, and discuss the latest reading selection. Visit our website and follow us @titlesontap to learn more.
