Hampstead Library News

HAMPSTEAD - The Hampstead Public Library hosts an Artist’s Open House on Mon., December 30, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., with painter John LeCours. A Danville resident, LeCours takes inspiration from the beauty of his native New England. His creative process centers on a direct response to nature, in the tradition of Henry David Thoreau. John works most often in oil and acrylic. This event is free and the public is welcome to come meet the artist. Refreshments will be provided. LeCours’ paintings will be on display at the Hampstead Library from December 30 through the end of February 2014.

BOOK DISCUSSION - Copies of “The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake” by Aimee Bender are now available for the Hampstead Public Library’s January book discussion. In this tale, young Rose bites into her mother’s homemade cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother’s emotions in the slice. Soon, she is privy to the secret knowledge that most families keep hidden: her father’s detachment, her mother’s transgression, her brother’s increasing retreat from the world. As Rose grows up she learns to harness her gift and becomes aware that there are secrets even her taste buds cannot discern. “The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake” is about the enormous difficulty of loving someone fully when you know too much about them. The discussion will be on Thursday, January 16 at 1 pm. Newcomers are always welcome.
