One Book, One Community Amesbury Reads!
The Amesbury Public Library’s community wide reads project began in spring of 2012, and returns for May 2017! Our annual goal is to bring Amesbury residents of all ages together around the excitement of a shared reading experience, and also provide us a chance to shine a light on the rich history of the community in which we live.
When Alizee Benoit, an American painter working for the Works Progress Administration, vanishes in New York City in 1940, no one know what happened to her. Not her Jewish family living in German-occupied France. Not her artistic patron, Eleanor Roosevelt. Not her close-knit group of friends. And, some seventy years later, not her grand-niece, Danielle, who while working at Christie’s auction house uncovers paintings hidden behind works by famous Abstract Expressionist artists. Do they hold the answers to the questions surrounding her missing aunt?
Copies of all books are available at the library.
