Stuffed Animal Sleepover at the Library
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Children are encouraged to bring a stuffed animal to the Osterville Village Library between 3-5 p.m. on Friday May 2. Once the OVL closes, the animals will "come to life” in the library! Librarians will capture the stuffed animals’ after-hours antics on film. Children are invited back for a special sleepover themed Story Time on Saturday morning, May 3 at 10 a.m. to retrieve their stuffed animal, along with photos of their stuffed animal’s sleepover at the library.

Some of the planned activities for the stuffed animals include: a pizza dinner, roasting marshmallows by the fire in the Carolyn Crossett Rowland Fireside Reading Room, a movie in the Main Meeting Room, ending with a goodnight story in the Lillian "Dixie” Morton Children’s Room (and lots of other activities in between)! 

Participants will receive a certificate of participation calligraphed by Cathy Wright, calligrapher, as well as a photo booklet, colored by the child, showcasing two photos of the stuffed animal at the OVL sleepover.

For more information about this event, please call the Osterville Village Library at 508-428-5757 or email klee@clamsnet.org.

Author Patry Francis Book Talk and Signing
10:30 AM -

The OVL & Books By the Sea welcome author Patry Francis, author of The Orphans of Race Point, to the Osterville Village Library!

Set on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, a suspenseful page-turning saga of love, murder, and the true meaning of faith from the author of the acclaimed The Liar’s Diary.

Set in the close-knit Portuguese community of Provincetown, Massachusetts, The Orphans of Race Point traces the relationship between Hallie Costa and Gus Silva, who meet as children in the wake of a terrible crime that leaves Gus parentless. Their friendship evolves into an enduring and passionate love that will ask more of them than they ever imagined.

On the night of their high school prom, a terrible tragedy devastates their relationship and profoundly alters the course of their lives. And when, a decade later, Gus—now a priest—becomes entangled with a distraught woman named Ava and her daughter Mila, troubled souls who bring back vivid memories of his own damaged past, the unthinkable happens: he is charged with murder. Can Hallie save the man she’s never stopped loving, by not only freeing him from prison but also—finally—the curse of his past?

Told in alternating voices, The Orphans of Race Point illuminates the transformative power of love and the myriad ways we find meaning in our lives.
