High School Book Group
3:30 PM - 4:45 PM

The High School Book Group (grades 9 and up) will host their first meeting on Sat. Nov. 1, at 3:30 PM. Their selected book is The Raven Boys by Maggies Stiefvater. Library copies of the book are available at the children's desk. Read the book and join the group for a lively discussion.  

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (Scholastic Press)

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them--until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her. His name is Gansey, a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble. But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher who notices many things but says very little. For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She doesn't believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.

The Human Face of the Great War
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

The unprecedented and shocking human cost of World War I staggered all involved, raised doubts about dominant military strategy, and had a deep impact on culture, art, literature, and geo-political reality. The shockwave of this massive loss of life and collateral suffering still resonates to this day. This course will examine the impact of industrialized warfare, the concept of total war, life in the trenches, shell shock, frontiers of medicine and psychiatry, and the impact of devastating sorrow and grief—then and now—and will trace the battlefield experience of selective soldiers in the 26th Division (Yankee Division).

Presenter: Dan Leclerc taught history in the Chelmsford Public Schools, served as Director of Social Studies, K-12 for the Hingham Public Schools, and retired as Asst. Superintendent of the Ashland Public Schools. He holds a Master’s Degree in History from Northeastern University; he has been to France five times, always devoting a portion of each visit to research and visitation of specific battle sites on the Western Front; and he has conducted presentations for the Belmont and Arlington Historical Societies, the Arlington Men’s Club, The Chanticleer Society in Hull, the Lexington Veterans' Association, the Weston Military History Group, the Massachusetts State House Library, the Military Order of World Wars, the Massachusetts Military History Society, and has taught three courses for OLLI.

Non-Jewish Victims of the Third Reich
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

Brown Bag Lunch Series

(Video Conference Presentation)

The Nazi movement swept through 20th Century Europe with a ferocity that will be long remembered. Although the term “holocaust” (burning) is properly applied to Jewish victims, there were others who became victims of the Reich because of their birthrights, choices, and beliefs. This class is a tribute to their memories.

Facilitator: Janet Lemus

Janet M. Lemus has the honor and privilege of working with the Stand Firm Education Group in conjunction with the Arnold Liebster Foundation, bringing first-person experiences to the classroom. She feels strongly that it is critical to understand this period in history so that it may never be repeated.

The Great War: Four Years of War, A Century of Controversy
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

The four-year Great War has been the subject of a century of controversy, focusing primarily on the causes of the war and the leaders of the Great Powers: Germany, Britain, France, Russia, Austria-Hungary, and the United States. The consequences of the war not only affect international politics to this day, but are the subject of both scholarly and political controversy. Participants in this seminar are encouraged to read books selected for the course, preferably in advance of the course. (Anyone interested in taking this course should check the OLLI website for a list of recommended reading.)

Presenter: Rita Peters, PhD is a Professor in the Political Science Department at UMass Boston. She is also an Associate of Harvard University’s Davis Center for Russian Studies. Among other courses, Rita teaches International Relations and War, and she has lectured on various aspects of conflict and security at the University of Latvia, the School of Diplomacy in Talinn, and for OLLI.

What a Character?
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

Analyzing fictional characters, like evaluating actual people, requires the exercise of both intellect and emotion. We readers bring to this task our personal experiences, our logic and intuition, our biases, our secret hopes, our strengths and vulnerabilities, and our imaginations. Although we understand that the characters in stories are not real, we sometimes respond to them as if they are, especially when writers employ extraordinary insight and craft. In this course, we will study a host of memorable characters created by the likes of J. D. Salinger, Alice Walker, John Steinbeck, Jill McCorkle, Gish Jen, Elizabeth Strout, Jesse Walker, and others. An examination of each author's technique and style will be followed by discussions, which explore what our emotional reactions to their powerful characters reveal about our own personalities.

Presenter: Maureen O'Brien taught English at Quincy High School for many years and has facilitated several OLLI courses such as "Literature of the Holocaust," "Growing Up Female," "Typical Americans," and "Families Flawed."

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

Simple Tricks to Improve Memory!
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Did you know that you can increase your memory by several hundred percent! People with great memories use memory tricks or mnemonics. These interactive sessions will get you started on improving your memory. Using the “peg word” method, participants will learn a list of 10 concepts—in order, instantaneously! Next, we will experiment with “reduction mnemonics” by condensing large bodies of information to shorter forms for instant recall. After using word games for practice and fun, students will work in small groups to develop their own word games or expressions for recall. We will brainstorm how these techniques can be applied in everyday situations.

Presenter: Ruth Pinkus studied the efficacy of the use of mnemonics with special-education students at the high school level while completing her Master’s Degree in Special Education from Bridgewater State College. Her students enjoyed great success! Since then, she has presented workshops to groups of teachers in her college classes and peers at the school where she taught for 34 years. Ruth also presented the “peg word” method and other simple memory tricks to her Toastmasters’ International group in order to meet the entertainment topic criteria required for advanced certification.

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

Beating the Odds: Prevent Falls
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

Brown Bag Lunch Series

One in three people over the age of 65 fall each year. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries in older adults. Twenty to thirty percent of falls result in moderate and severe injuries, including fractures and traumatic brain injuries. In 2010, the medical cost of falls was 30 billion dollars. Falls are multi-factorial, but much can be done to prevent them.

Presenter: Florence Whiteley-Binkewicz has been a registered Physical Therapist in the state of Massachusetts since 1968, more than 20 years in the home-care environment, and 17 years as a Rehab Manager.

On the Home Front: American Society during World War II
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

This course will consider the major changes in American life from 1941–1945, including the war bond campaign, changing roles of women and minorities in America, the changing economy, and government policies and agencies. Complemented with an array of visual aids, this course will present the World War II period as something of a "late adolescence" in American identity, as it establishes itself both at home and abroad as the major global power of the 20th century.

Presenter: Matthew Wilding is a candidate for a Master’s degree at UMass Boston and is currently writing his thesis on the American War Bond program during World War II. He is also the Content Director of the Freedom Trail Foundation and has conducted both tours and virtual education programs for thousands of students of all ages.

What a Character?
1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

Analyzing fictional characters, like evaluating actual people, requires the exercise of both intellect and emotion. We readers bring to this task our personal experiences, our logic and intuition, our biases, our secret hopes, our strengths and vulnerabilities, and our imaginations. Although we understand that the characters in stories are not real, we sometimes respond to them as if they are, especially when writers employ extraordinary insight and craft. In this course, we will study a host of memorable characters created by the likes of J. D. Salinger, Alice Walker, John Steinbeck, Jill McCorkle, Gish Jen, Elizabeth Strout, Jesse Walker, and others. An examination of each author's technique and style will be followed by discussions, which explore what our emotional reactions to their powerful characters reveal about our own personalities.

Presenter: Maureen O'Brien taught English at Quincy High School for many years and has facilitated several OLLI courses such as "Literature of the Holocaust," "Growing Up Female," "Typical Americans," and "Families Flawed."

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

Simple Tricks to Improve Memory!
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Did you know that you can increase your memory by several hundred percent! People with great memories use memory tricks or mnemonics. These interactive sessions will get you started on improving your memory. Using the “peg word” method, participants will learn a list of 10 concepts—in order, instantaneously! Next, we will experiment with “reduction mnemonics” by condensing large bodies of information to shorter forms for instant recall. After using word games for practice and fun, students will work in small groups to develop their own word games or expressions for recall. We will brainstorm how these techniques can be applied in everyday situations.

Presenter: Ruth Pinkus studied the efficacy of the use of mnemonics with special-education students at the high school level while completing her Master’s Degree in Special Education from Bridgewater State College. Her students enjoyed great success! Since then, she has presented workshops to groups of teachers in her college classes and peers at the school where she taught for 34 years. Ruth also presented the “peg word” method and other simple memory tricks to her Toastmasters’ International group in order to meet the entertainment topic criteria required for advanced certification.

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

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

The unprecedented and shocking human cost of World War I staggered all involved, raised doubts about dominant military strategy, and had a deep impact on culture, art, literature, and geo-political reality. The shockwave of this massive loss of life and collateral suffering still resonates to this day. This course will examine the impact of industrialized warfare, the concept of total war, life in the trenches, shell shock, frontiers of medicine and psychiatry, and the impact of devastating sorrow and grief—then and now—and will trace the battlefield experience of selective soldiers in the 26th Division (Yankee Division).

Presenter: Dan Leclerc taught history in the Chelmsford Public Schools, served as Director of Social Studies, K-12 for the Hingham Public Schools, and retired as Asst. Superintendent of the Ashland Public Schools. He holds a Master’s Degree in History from Northeastern University; he has been to France five times, always devoting a portion of each visit to research and visitation of specific battle sites on the Western Front; and he has conducted presentations for the Belmont and Arlington Historical Societies, the Arlington Men’s Club, The Chanticleer Society in Hull, the Lexington Veterans' Association, the Weston Military History Group, the Massachusetts State House Library, the Military Order of World Wars, the Massachusetts Military History Society, and has taught three courses for OLLI.

An Evening with the Author: Sigrid MacRae to Discuss A World Elsewhere
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

This event is sponsored by the Hingham Public Library and Buttonwood Books. Copies of A World Elsewhere will be available for purchase and signing by the author.

A World Elsewhere: An American Woman in Wartime Germant is a love story of an American blueblood and a German aristocrat—and a riveting tale of survival in wartime Germany.

Sigrid MacRae never knew her father, until a trove of letters revealed not only him, but also the singular story of her parents’ intercontinental love affair. While visiting Parisin 1927, her American mother, Aimée, raised in a wealthy Connecticut family, falls in love with a charming, sophisticated Baltic German baron, a penniless exile of the Russian revolution. They marry. But the harsh reality of post World War I Germany is inescapable: a bleak economy and the rise of Hitler quash Heinrich’s diplomaticambitions, and their struggling family farm north of Berlin drains Aimée’s modest fortune. In 1941, Heinrich volunteers for the Russian front and is killed by a sniper. Widowed, living in a country soon at war with her own, Aimée must fend for herself. With home and family in jeopardy, she and her six young children flee the advancing Russian army in an epic journey, back to the country she thought she’d left behind.

A World Elsewhere is a stirring narrative of two hostages to history and a mother’s courageous fight to save her family.

The Courtships of Abraham Lincoln
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

Brown Bag Lunch Series

(Video Conference Presentation)

Lincoln's love life before marriage has been possibly the most written about phase of his pre-Presidential career. His premarital romances have often been the stuff of myth because the evidence is conflicting but tantalizing. Getting the stories straight involves historical detective work. This talk will be one historian's narrative after months of trying to unravel what happened.

Facilitator: Martin Quitt

Martin Quitt has given brown bag talks and has taught courses for OLLI since 2004. His book, Stephen A. Douglas and Antebellum Democracy (Cambridge University Press, 2012), was previewed in several of these presentations. He is now writing a biography of Lincoln. Martin is Professor Emeritus of History at UMass Boston.

1:15 PM - 2:45 PM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

This course will consider the major changes in American life from 1941–1945, including the war bond campaign, changing roles of women and minorities in America, the changing economy, and government policies and agencies. Complemented with an array of visual aids, this course will present the World War II period as something of a "late adolescence" in American identity, as it establishes itself both at home and abroad as the major global power of the 20th century.

Presenter: Matthew Wilding is a candidate for a Master’s degree at UMass Boston and is currently writing his thesis on the American War Bond program during World War II. He is also the Content Director of the Freedom Trail Foundation and has conducted both tours and virtual education programs for thousands of students of all ages.

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

The Battle of the Bulge
11:40 AM - 1:00 PM

Brown Bag Lunch Series

(Video Conference Presentation)

This December marks the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge. Over the objections of his generals, Hitler ordered a massive counter-attack against Allied forces in the area of the Ardennes Forest. Hitler’s plan was to split the Anglo-American front and to settle for a negotiated peace in the West. With over 19,000 Americans killed, the Battle of the Bulge was the largest and bloodiest battle fought by American forces in World War II.

Facilitator: Gary Hylander

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, civic and professional organizations as well as a public affairs commentator on local cable news and radio.

This program is sponsored by Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UMass Boston. Participants must be pre-registered OLLI members or Hingham residents. Call 617-287-7312 or email ollireg@gmail.com for more information.

The Human Face of the Great War
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

(Video Conference Presentation from UMass Boston)

The unprecedented and shocking human cost of World War I staggered all involved, raised doubts about dominant military strategy, and had a deep impact on culture, art, literature, and geo-political reality. The shockwave of this massive loss of life and collateral suffering still resonates to this day. This course will examine the impact of industrialized warfare, the concept of total war, life in the trenches, shell shock, frontiers of medicine and psychiatry, and the impact of devastating sorrow and grief—then and now—and will trace the battlefield experience of selective soldiers in the 26th Division (Yankee Division).

Presenter: Dan Leclerc taught history in the Chelmsford Public Schools, served as Director of Social Studies, K-12 for the Hingham Public Schools, and retired as Asst. Superintendent of the Ashland Public Schools. He holds a Master’s Degree in History from Northeastern University; he has been to France five times, always devoting a portion of each visit to research and visitation of specific battle sites on the Western Front; and he has conducted presentations for the Belmont and Arlington Historical Societies, the Arlington Men’s Club, The Chanticleer Society in Hull, the Lexington Veterans' Association, the Weston Military History Group, the Massachusetts State House Library, the Military Order of World Wars, the Massachusetts Military History Society, and has taught three courses for OLLI.

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