*Please note that this is a parent and child book group. Reservations are needed. Children must be accompanied by a grown-up.

Award-winning, bestselling author/illustrator Henkes ("Kitten's First Moon") introduces second-grader Billy Miller in this fast-paced and funny story about friendship, siblings, and the perils of elementary school

"Funny and often poignant . . . Billy himself might have been daunted by a book with more than 200 pages, but eager young readers will find this a great first chapter book to share or read solo."--School Library Journal (starred review)

3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Join us for snacks and a lively discussion of the book: The Last Apprentice: Revenge of the Witch, by Joseph Delaney. New members are always welcome - all who have read the book are encouraged to join!

 

For years, Old Gregory has been the Spook for the county, ridding the local villages of evil. Now his time is coming to an end. But who will take over for him? Twenty-nine apprentices have tried-some floundered, some fled, some failed to stay alive.

Only Thomas Ward is left. He's the last hope; the last apprentice.

Can Thomas succeed? Will he learn the difference between a benign witch and a malevolent one? Does the Spook's warning against girls with pointy shoes include Alice? And what will happen if Thomas accidentally frees Mother Malkin, the most evil witch in the county ... ? (via Indiebound)

Arsenic and Clam Chowder: Murder in Gilded Age New York
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

Brown Bag Lunch Series

Mary Alice Livingston, a member of one of the most prestigious families in New York, was accused of murdering her own mother, Evelina Bliss. The bizarre instrument of death, an arsenic-laced pail of clam chowder, had been delivered to the victim by her ten-year-old granddaughter, and Livingston was arrested in her mourning clothes immediately after attending her mother's funeral. In addition to being the mother of four out-of-wedlock children, the last born in prison while she was awaiting trial, Livingston faced the possibility of being the first woman to be executed in New York's new-fangled electric chair, and all these lurid details made her arrest and trial the central focus of an all-out circulation war then underway between Joseph Pulitzer's World and William Randolph Hearst's Journal. We'll look at this trial in the context of events and personalities in Gilded Age New York, with its backdrop of the arrival of skyscrapers, automobiles, motion pictures, and other modern marvels. This presentation also considers some of the social and legal issues involved, and the meaning of "beyond a reasonable doubt."

Presenter: Jim Livingston studied engineering physics at Cornell and Harvard, did materials research at General Electric for 33 years, and taught in the Department of Materials Science at MIT for 19 years. Space exploration is a recent interest.

This program is sponsored by Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UMass Boston. Participants must be pre-registered OLLI members or Hingham residents.

Leonardo da Vinci and The Last Supper
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

Brown Bag Lunch Series

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

To begin to appreciate one of da Vinci’s two greatest artistic accomplishments during the Italian High Renaissance Period of the 1500s, one should be cognizant of the following: who commissioned the Fresco?; why in the Refectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie?; what does one interpret from the body language and expressions of the figures depicted?; and why the use and significance of certain colors in the vestments. Answering these basic questions allows us to truly “see” and interpret this masterpiece.

Presenter: Irene L. Roman, PhD received her BS and MEd from Boston University and a Doctorate of Philosophy from Boston College Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Dr. Roman has lived, studied, and traveled extensively in Italy. She has been a consultant and translator of documents and correspondence and has taught Italian language and culture at several institutions, including the Radcliffe College Graduate Seminars, Northeastern University, and Quincy College, and she has facilitated several OLLI courses as well as Brown Bags. Dr. Roman co- facilitated the April 2015 OLLI Classical Studies Program in Italy. She is a member of the OLLI Board of Trustees, the Curriculum Committee, and the Outreach Committee.

Iran: Persian Glory and Islamic Revolution
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

Brown Bag Lunch Series

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

With a history dating 2,500 years, the Persian Empire was the largest of ancient times, extending from Central Asia to North Africa. The legacy of this power and wealth is manifest in the stunning tiled architecture of mosques and secular mansions, the distinctively spiced cuisine, the arts and crafts including arguably the world’s most beautiful rugs, and the diverse people who comprised the Empire as invaders or subjects. Iran’s recent history is marked by religious rule following the 1979 Islamic revolution. Barry Pell traveled nearly 4,000 miles through the country’s magnificent landscape, visiting historic cities and monuments, and meeting with Iranian people who openly shared opinions about their lives and relations with America. This presentation will be accompanied by Mr. Pell’s photography.

Presenter: Barry Pell is a world traveler and photojournalist. He has traveled widely over the past 40 years, visiting and documenting landscapes and cultures in 161 countries. Mr. Pell has also lived and traveled in China, Eastern Europe, and North Africa. He currently lectures on international cultures at schools, universities, and institutions in the Boston area.

Iran, Turkey, and U.S. Foreign Policy
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

In the early twentieth century both Iran and Turkey attempted constitutional revolutions intended to implement Western-style governments.  These revolutions initially failed, in part for internal reasons, but both countries also experienced significant foreign intervention—Turkey in the aftermath of World War I, and Iran throughout much of the century.  Following very different paths, they have now succeeded in establishing independent, constitutional republics in which Islam plays a significant, or in the case of Iran, a dominant role.

Given the generally unsatisfactory results of the Arab Spring, Turkey and Iran provide interesting, but very different examples of how Western models of constitutional government have developed in two important Muslim countries.  Clearly, Iran has pursued a course that many find alarming--especially the United States, Israel, and the Sunni countries of the region.  Yet the election of  Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in June of 2013 and the pressure of economic sanctions have led to an agreement restricting Iran's nuclear program.  Does this signal a change in the priorities of Iranian leaders and the beginning of a new relationship with the United States?  Or have we simply been outmaneuvered by an implacable foe? 

Meanwhile, the situation in Turkey has becomes increasingly unclear.  Its foreign policy of "zero problems with its neighbors" collapsed in the aftermath of the Arab Spring and the rise of ISIS.  Relations with the United States, although recently improving, have been troubled.  Domestically, President Erdogan's party, which has ruled the country since 2002,  lost its parliamentary majority in an election last June, and a truce with dissident Kurds has broken down.

Both Turkey and Iran are major Middle Eastern powers, with an important stake in the Syrian civil war and the larger Sunni-Shiite conflict dividing the region.  What does the future hold, and how should the United States react?  This seminar will examine the political developments in these two countries since the beginning of the twentieth century and consider the implications for U.S. foreign policy today.  The reading will focus on Stephen Kinzer’s 2010 book, Reset, in which he provides a brief history of Iran and Turkey in the twentieth century and examines how these countries might provide a new focus for U.S. policy in the Middle East.  The book is available through Amazon.com, either in hard back or Kindle version.  Although you should purchase the Kinzer book, supplemental material, primarily concerning current events, will be provided to accompany the Reset reading.  Each assignment will be approximately 35-40 pages.

The format of the seminar will be a conversation about the material, in which Mr. Hertig will act as a facilitator and suggest questions to focus the discussion.  Participants should be prepared to raise questions of their own, however, to help shape the discussion.

Andrew Hertig is recently retired from Phillips Exeter Academy where he taught history for forty-five years and served as chair of the history department and dean of faculty.  He has an AB degree from Harvard and an MA in U.S. history from UC Berkeley.   For over a decade he taught a course at Exeter on the history of the modern Middle East.

Registration is required.

Introduction to Mindfulness
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

Brown Bag Lunch Series

Mindfulness is a concept that comes from the Western contemplative and Eastern meditation traditions. In the past 25 years it has been found to be useful and effective in health care in the treatment of various conditions such as stress, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and cancer. Mindfulness is defined as “awareness without judgment of what is, via direct and immediate experience.” In our culture, so many of us are disconnected from emotions, physical sensations, and the present moment. This small experiential group program will introduce members to the concept with brief exercises to rediscover the present moment.

Presenter: Ms Radei is a licensed clinical social worker with an MSW from Boston University, MEd from Northeastern, ABE from Harvard, with postgraduate studies at the Boston Institute for Psychotherapy, and U. of Washington Intensive Training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). She has worked in outpatient and inpatient settings in Southeastern Massachusetts and is currently employed as a per diem clinician.

Iran, Turkey, and U.S. Foreign Policy
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

In the early twentieth century both Iran and Turkey attempted constitutional revolutions intended to implement Western-style governments.  These revolutions initially failed, in part for internal reasons, but both countries also experienced significant foreign intervention—Turkey in the aftermath of World War I, and Iran throughout much of the century.  Following very different paths, they have now succeeded in establishing independent, constitutional republics in which Islam plays a significant, or in the case of Iran, a dominant role.

Given the generally unsatisfactory results of the Arab Spring, Turkey and Iran provide interesting, but very different examples of how Western models of constitutional government have developed in two important Muslim countries.  Clearly, Iran has pursued a course that many find alarming--especially the United States, Israel, and the Sunni countries of the region.  Yet the election of  Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in June of 2013 and the pressure of economic sanctions have led to an agreement restricting Iran's nuclear program.  Does this signal a change in the priorities of Iranian leaders and the beginning of a new relationship with the United States?  Or have we simply been outmaneuvered by an implacable foe? 

Meanwhile, the situation in Turkey has becomes increasingly unclear.  Its foreign policy of "zero problems with its neighbors" collapsed in the aftermath of the Arab Spring and the rise of ISIS.  Relations with the United States, although recently improving, have been troubled.  Domestically, President Erdogan's party, which has ruled the country since 2002,  lost its parliamentary majority in an election last June, and a truce with dissident Kurds has broken down.

Both Turkey and Iran are major Middle Eastern powers, with an important stake in the Syrian civil war and the larger Sunni-Shiite conflict dividing the region.  What does the future hold, and how should the United States react?  This seminar will examine the political developments in these two countries since the beginning of the twentieth century and consider the implications for U.S. foreign policy today.  The reading will focus on Stephen Kinzer’s 2010 book, Reset, in which he provides a brief history of Iran and Turkey in the twentieth century and examines how these countries might provide a new focus for U.S. policy in the Middle East.  The book is available through Amazon.com, either in hard back or Kindle version.  Although you should purchase the Kinzer book, supplemental material, primarily concerning current events, will be provided to accompany the Reset reading.  Each assignment will be approximately 35-40 pages.

The format of the seminar will be a conversation about the material, in which Mr. Hertig will act as a facilitator and suggest questions to focus the discussion.  Participants should be prepared to raise questions of their own, however, to help shape the discussion.

Andrew Hertig is recently retired from Phillips Exeter Academy where he taught history for forty-five years and served as chair of the history department and dean of faculty.  He has an AB degree from Harvard and an MA in U.S. history from UC Berkeley.   For over a decade he taught a course at Exeter on the history of the modern Middle East.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Malcolm X. Born Malcolm Little, his early years were spent as a drifter in Boston and New York City. With his subsequent conversion to Islam, he took the name Malcolm X. Increasingly radicalized by the emerging Civil Rights movement, he indicted White America in the harshest terms for crimes against Black America. Malcolm X advocated black separatism and called for reparations for the past injustices of slavery. Publicly critical of the Nation of Islam’s leader, Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X was assassinated in February 1965 by three gunman of the Nation of Islam.

Presenter: Gary L. Hylander earned his PhD at Boston College. His advisor and dissertation director was the noted Boston historian Thomas H. O’Connor. Hylander is currently an independent scholar who specializes as a presidential historian, pedagogical specialist for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and professor of history at Framingham State University. He is a frequent presenter at library forums, historical societies, senior living centers, and civic and professional organizations as well as a public affairs commentator on local cable news and radio.

East Timor and Indonesia: A Turbulent History, A Peaceful Rebuilding
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

Brown Bag Lunch Series

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

East Timor, located north of Australia, is one of the world’s newest nations. But its independence was hard fought—first from the Portuguese, and then from Indonesia, with whom it fought a 24-year war. The Timorese are now getting on with rebuilding their nation, and the charm and grace of the people embody the seemingly unlimited potential of the country. Barry Pell recently traveled throughout East Timor to see how the country is progressing in this time of peace. This presentation will be accompanied by his photography and will also explore the history, landscape, and fascinating culture of the nearby Indonesian archipelago.

Presenter: Barry Pell is a world traveler and photojournalist. He has traveled widely over the past 40 years, visiting and documenting landscapes and cultures in 161 countries. Mr. Pell has also lived and traveled in China, Eastern Europe, and North Africa. He currently lectures on international cultures at schools, universities, and institutions in the Boston area.

This program is sponsored by Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UMass Boston. Participants must be pre-registered OLLI members or Hingham residents.
