Ross Poldark: A Novel of Cornwall, 1783-1787 will be reviewed by Dennis Norman. In the first novel in Winston Graham's hit series, a weary Ross Poldark returns to England from war, looking forward to a joyful homecoming with his beloved Elizabeth. But instead he discovers his father has died, his home is overrun by livestock and drunken servants, and Elizabeth--believing Ross to be dead--is now engaged to his cousin. Ross has no choice but to start his life anew. Thus begins the Poldark series, a heartwarming, gripping saga set in the windswept landscape of Cornwall. With an unforgettable cast of characters that spans loves, lives, and generations, this extraordinary masterwork is a story you will never forget. The review will also touch on the next two sagas of the series. The Westchester Public Library will host this program at the Westchester Township Museum on Thursday, September 17.

Bill Pohlad's Love & Mercy, a biopic of Beach Boys mastermind Brian Wilson, focuses on two distinct periods in the songwriter's life. One timeline follows Wilson (played as a younger man by Paul Dano) as he quits performing live in order to focus on the creation of the album Pet Sounds, the single "Good Vibrations," and the eventually discarded album Smile. During this period of intense work, Wilson's mental-health issues worsen. The other section of the film features John Cusack as an older Wilson, as he attempts to escape the influence of a manipulative doctor (Paul Giamatti) who has become a totalitarian guru to him. Helping him in this endeavor is a car saleswoman named Melinda (Elizabeth Banks).

Best-selling author Shane Gericke has been held at knifepoint, hit by lightning, and shaken the cold, sweaty hand of Liberace. He was born to write thriller novels! His latest is The Fury, a sweeping novel of global terrorism that's endorsed by such literary superstars as Steve Berry and David Morrell, the creator of Rambo. Tantor Media will release The Fury in trade paperback, eBook, and audio-book on September 4, 2015. Jazzy new versions of Shane's entire backlist--Torn Apart, Cut to the Bone, and Blown Away--will be re-released in eBooks and trade paperback by Mandevilla Press. Shane is a No. 1 Kindle bestseller, a national bestseller in print, and his books have been translated into German, Chinese, Turkish, and Slovak, allowing him to correspond with readers around the world. Shane spent two decades as a newspaper editor, most prominently at the Chicago Sun-Times, before turning to fiction. He keeps his hand in nonfiction by writing for digital media. The Friends of the Library will host a reception and book signing following the program. Free and open to the public.
