Books & Bites

by Luke Osteen



A spicy presentation will examine the realities and the enduring whispers about JFK and a woman who dwelled in the shadows of his tumultuous life.

Hudson Library launches its busy summer season with a pair of events that’ll set the tone for the rest of the year.

“A highlight is the first of our annual Books & Bites series, featuring Michelle Gable on Saturday, May 25, at 12:30 PM,” says Branch Librarian Carlyn Morenus. “The Hudson Library Board provides lunch bites at this free event; Michelle will talk about her latest book ‘The Summer I Met Jack.’ Copies of her books will be available for purchase and signing.”

‘The Summer I Met Jack’ is an explosive novel that mixes historical fact with enlightened speculation about a sustained romance between a young John F. Kennedy and Alicia Corning Clark.

It’s the story of a dizzying romance that deals with family obligations, politics, glamour, and the irrepressible power of passions indulged and thwarted.

Author Gable will explain the details of what’s fact and what’s fiction and answer questions from her audience.

Hudson Library is also beginning to accept enrollments for its Summer Learning Program. It’s a summer-long program that encourages children to read and provides fun, educational programs to foster a love of learning. Parents may drop by the library throughout May for the program, which’ll start in June.

“I’ll also be at Highlands School’s Elementary Awards Day on May 24 to do sign-ups there,” says Morenus.
