Noon Book Group
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM

In an extraordinary feat of narrative invention, Philip Roth imagines an alternate history where Franklin D. Roosevelt loses the 1940 presidential election to heroic aviator and rabid isolationist Charles A. Lindbergh. Shortly thereafter, Lindbergh negotiates a cordial "understanding" with Adolf Hitler, while the new government embarks on a program of folksy anti-Semitism. For one boy growing up in Newark, Lindbergh's election is the first in a series of ruptures that threaten to destroy his small, safe corner of America-and with it, his mother, his father, and his older brother.

The Lost Family with Jenna Blum
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Bestselling author Jenna Blum will give a talk on her latest novel The Lost Family, an immersive, emotionally riveting family saga about the reverberations of World War II across generations:

In 1965 Manhattan, patrons flock to Masha’s to savor its Brisket Bourguignon and admire its dashing owner and head chef Peter Rashkin. With his movie-star good looks and tragic past, Peter, a survivor of Auschwitz, is the most eligible bachelor in town. But Peter does not care for the many women who parade through the restaurant hoping to catch his eye. Running Masha’s consumes him, as does his terrible guilt over surviving the horrors of the Nazi death camp while his wife, Masha—the restaurant’s namesake—and two young daughters perished.

Then exquisitely beautiful June Bouquet, an up-and-coming young model, appears at the restaurant, piercing Peter’s guard. Though she is twenty years his junior, the two begin a passionate courtship. When June unexpectedly becomes pregnant, Peter proposes, hoping a new family will allow him to let go of the horror of the past.  But over the next two decades, the indelible sadness of those memories will overshadow Peter, June, and their daughter Elsbeth, transforming them in shocking, heartbreaking, and unexpected ways. Spanning three cinematic decades, from the explosive 1960s and swinging 1970s to the glittering 1980s, Jenna Blum artfully brings to the page a husband devastated by a grief he cannot name, a frustrated wife struggling to compete with a ghost she cannot banish, and a daughter sensitive to the pain of both her own family and another lost before she was born.

“Peter was inspired by a survivor I had the immense privilege of interviewing for the Steven Spielberg Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation,” Blum says. “We know about the Nazi atrocities, but we rarely consider the next chapter: the survivor coming to a new country to rebuild—while coping with the memory of the loved ones he lost. And when a weeping reader told me that her husband, a survivor’s son, had grappled his whole life with his beloved father’s emotional distance, I knew I had to write about the effects of war on an entire family.”

Jenna Blum is the New York Times and # 1 international bestselling author of novels Those Who Save Us and The Stormchasers and the novella “The Lucky One” in Grand Central. Jenna has taught novel workshops for 20 years at Grub Street Writers in Boston, where she earned her M.A. at Boston University. In addition to interviewing Holocaust survivors for the Shoah Foundation, Jenna is a public speaker and avid cook: she creates and tests all the recipes in her novels.

Black Flags, Blue Waters: The Epic History of America's Most Notorious Pirates
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Author Eric Jay Dolin will discuss his recently released book Black Flags, Blue Waters which reveals the dramatic and surprising history of American piracy’s “Golden Age”—spanning the late 1600s through the early 1700s—when lawless pirates plied the coastal waters of North America and beyond. Dolin illustrates how American colonists at first supported these outrageous pirates in an early display of colonial solidarity against the Crown, and then violently opposed them. Through engrossing episodes of roguish glamour and extreme brutality, Dolin depicts the star pirates of this period, among them towering Blackbeard, ill-fated Captain Kidd, and sadistic Edward Low, who delighted in torturing his prey. Also brilliantly detailed are the pirates’ manifold enemies, including colonial governor John Winthrop, evangelist Cotton Mather, and young Benjamin Franklin. Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Dolin provides this wholly original account of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life.

Alternative Endings: Home Funerals & Green Burials
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Just a few generations ago all funerals occurred in the ‘home parlor’ and burials were ‘green’, which is part of the natural cycle of death feeding new life.  Come engage in a conversation about the practice of home funerals and green burial.  Both, home funerals and green burial, are legal in Massachusetts, but few cemeteries in the state allow a green burial.  Does Wayland?

The Guide to Walden Pond with Robert M. Thorson
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

This is the first guidebook to Henry David Thoreau’s most defining place, visited by half a million people each year and widely known as the fountainhead of America's environmental consciousness.

Using this guide, both armchair readers and trail-walkers alike can amble around the pond’s shoreline, pausing at fifteen special places to learn about people, historic events, and the natural world. Thoreau will be a constant companion via quotes from Walden. Stop by stop, the place of his book will merge with the book of his place.

Abundantly illustrated with photographs, drawings, and maps, this guide is a must-have for a meaningful, engaging tour of Walden Pond as well as a souvenir of a visit.

ROBERT M. THORSON is a professor at the University of Connecticut. An award-winning author, scientist, and journalist, he's an expert tour guide for Thoreau's Concord and a frequent speaker and consultant. From his home in Storrs, Connecticut, he walks to work on a trail through the woods.

Other Worlds: Spirituality and the Search for Invisible Dimensions
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Vassar College Professor of Religion Dr. Christopher White will discuss his new book, Other Worlds: Spirituality and the Search for Other Dimensions. The book examines the idea that the universe has invisible, higher dimensions and parallel universes.  It looks at this idea in science fiction, comic books, art and spirituality, examining (for instance) the work of Madeleine L'Engle, C. S. Lewis, Rod Serling (the Twilight Zone), Salvador Dali, as well as televangelists, scientists and others. 

 

 

 

Christopher White received his PhD in Religious Studies from Harvard University, where he studied religion and culture in modern Europe and America. He is particularly interested in religion and science, spirituality and “unchurched” religion, new religious movements, electronic media and popular culture.
