AnnaQuindlen.jpgNo. 1 New York Times bestselling author Anna Quindlen will kick off AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary, the Library's author visit series, on Monday, April 19, at 7 pm, in the Cole Auditorium.

Quindlen will discuss her latest book, Every Last One, an unforgettable portrait of a mother, a father, a family and the explosive, violent consequences of what seem like inconsequential actions. Mary Beth Latham is first and foremost a mother whose three teenage children come before anything else-- before her career as a landscape gardener and before her role as the wife of a well-liked doctor in town. Taking care of her kids and preserving their everyday routines are paramount. And so, when one of her sons, Max, becomes depressed and Mary Beth focuses her attentions on him, she is blindsided by a shocking act of violence. What happens afterwards is a testament to the power of a woman's love and determination.

With Earth Day on the horizon, reflect upon the life of a local man that has always shown respect for the environment. Pick up a copy of the Oral History Project book "Daniel Barrett: Teacher and Conservationist" at the Greenwich Library.

Daniel Barrett began teaching science at Greenwich High School in 1958. For many years, he took the students in his popular oceanography course into the field to study marine biology, to Greenwich Point and as far as Cape Cod and St. Thomas. Students studied all aspects of marine life, even making stew in the classroom from the mussels they had caught at the Point.
