Genevieve Fosa: When Mother Calls
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Wayland Author Genevieve Fosa will discuss her new book, When Mother Calls:

Josepha Brown is tired; tired of the seemingly endless winter, tired of her job and tired of her loopy stepmother, Maggie, calling at all hours about things that probably don't exist. Tonight, Maggie asks Josepha to please come over, because there has been an intruder in her home, and she wants to hold a seance to talk to this intruder. She is certain it is her brother Max, who died years ago. Josepha would rather curl up in bed with a good book. Instead, she goes to see what Maggie wants. As far as Maggie is concerned, the seance is an admirable success. Josepha stole the show, by falling asleep and letting her Uncle Max speak through her. The other guests are thrilled over her performance. This leads to Josepha having adventures with a nefarious agency that wants to imprison her in order to use her powers. In her effort to find a way to stop this agency, Josepha travels back in time to 1845. There she meets her sister, who wants to know why Josepha disappeared from her family when she was just a little girl.

 

About Genevieve Fosa: 

Genevieve grew up believing that the great novelists were at the top of the pecking order among intellectuals, as well as being much loved by the rest of humanity. She has craved that pinnacle of adoration for most of her life.

Her path towards writing was not a straight line. For a few years, she worked as an RN in various hospitals and nursing homes. However, her so-called artistic temperament was ot well suitd to the corporate milieu. She really wanted to be at home writing stories.  
 
Genevieve spent years attempting to satisfy these yearnings, and actually earn a living. For about twenty years, she worked as a ghostwriter, writing novels and memoirs for numerous anonymous clients. Now, she is writing novels in her own name, and When Mother Calls is the first of many to come.

Documentary Film: Standing in the Shadows of Motown
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

In 1959, Berry Gordy gathered the best musicians from Detroit's thriving jazz and blues scene to begin cutting songs for his new record company. Over a fourteen year period they were the heartbeat on "My Girl," "Bernadette," I Was Made to Love Her," and every other hit from Motown's Detroit era.

By the end of their phenomenal run, this unheralded group of musicians had played on more number ones hits than the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Elvis and the Beatles combined - which makes them the greatest hit machine in the history of popular music. They called themselves the Funk Brothers.

Forty-one years after they played their first note an a Motown record and three decades since they were all together, the Funk Brothers reunited back in Detroit to play their music and tell their unforgettable story in STANDING IN THE SHADOWS OF MOTOWN.

With the tumultuous sixties as a backdrop, Motown's unsung heroes take the viewer on a compelling journey in time as they trace the evolution of The Motown Sound" from its origins in Detroit to its demise in Los Angeles during the seventies. Through the eyes of the riveting characters who ruled Hitsville's studio by day and the club scene of Detroit by night, we enter a world of unparalleled soul and emotion as the Funk Brothers revisit the sites of their musical roots, triumphs, and eventual heartbreak.

For more than four decades, from the dance floors of the world, to the Detroit riots of 1967, to the war in Vietnam, the music the Funk Brothers created has played a major role in the cultural fabric of all of our lives. STANDING IN THE SHADOWS OF MOTOWN finally puts some faces on that music and introduces these heroic musical figures to the world.

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.

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

Set against the backdrop of the Age of Exploration, Black Flags, Blue Waters 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 the Indian Ocean. In this talk and slide presentation, bestselling author Eric Jay 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. 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. Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Black Flags, Blue Waters provides a wholly original account of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life.

 
 
Eric Jay Dolin is the author of Leviathan: The History of Whaling in America, which was chosen as one of the best nonfiction books of 2007 by the Los Angeles TimesBoston Globe, and Providence Journal, and also won the 2007 John Lyman Award for U.S. Maritime History; and Fur, Fortune, and Empire: The Epic History of the Fur Trade in America, which was chosen by the Seattle Times as one of the best nonfiction books of 2010, and also won the James P. Hanlan Book Award, given by the New England Historical Association. He is also the author of When America First Met China: An Exotic History of Tea, Drugs, and Money in the Age of Sail, which was chosen by Kirkus Reviews as one of the 100 best nonfiction books of 2012; and Brilliant Beacons: A History of the American Lighthouse, which was chosen by gCaptain and Classic Boat as one of the best nautical books of 2016. A graduate of Brown, Yale, and MIT, where he received his PhD in environmental policy, Dolin lives in Marblehead, Massachusetts, with his family.

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.

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?

Let's Build: Zip Line Challenge
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

New Program! Let's Build is a hands-on building workshop for kids in grades 4-6. Each month will feature a different building challenge, such as a straw tower, toothpick bridge, or lego boat. At the beginning of each session we will brainstorm some design ideas as a big group and then split up into smaller groups to build. You're welcome to come to all sessions or stop by for one or two. Let's Build workshops are run by Wayland High School Seniors Eileen Chan and Julia Treese.

This month's Let's Build Challenge is to build a zip line that can carry a ping pong ball down.

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.

Dan Kennedy: The Return of the Moguls
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Author, Journalist and Professor Dan Kennedy will discuss his new book: The Return of the Moguls: How Jeff Bezos and John Henry Are Remaking Newspapers for the Twenty-First Century

Will the return of old-style individual ownership spark a renaissance in the newspaper business?

Over the course of a generation, the story of the daily newspaper has been an unchecked slide from record profitability and readership to plummeting profits, increasing irrelevance, and inevitable obsolescence. The forces killing major dailies, alternative weeklies, and small-town shoppers are well understood — or seem obvious in hindsight, at least — and the catalog of publications that have gone under reads like a who’s who of American journalism. During the past half-century, old-style press barons gave way to a cabal of corporate interests who were unable or unwilling to invest in the future even as technological change was destroying their core business. The Taylor family sold the Boston Globe to the New York Times Company in 1993 for a cool $1.1 billion. Twenty years later, the Times Company resold it for just $70 million. The unexpected story, however, is not what they sold it for but who they sold it to: John Henry, the principal owner of the Boston Red Sox.

A billionaire who made his money in the world of high finance, Henry inspired optimism in Boston because of his track record as a public-spirited business executive—and because his deep pockets seemed to ensure that the shrunken newspaper would not be subjected to further downsizing. In just a few days, the sale of the Globe was overtaken by much bigger news: Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and one of the world’s richest people, had reached a deal to buy the Washington Post for $250 million.

Henry’s ascension at the Globe sparked hope. Bezos’s purchase seemed to inspire nothing short of ecstasy, as numerous observers expressed the belief that his lofty status as one of our leading digital visionaries could help him solve the daunting financial problems facing the newspaper business.

Though Bezos and Henry are the two most prominent individuals to enter the newspaper business, a third preceded them. Aaron Kushner, a greeting-card executive, acquired California’s Orange County Register in July 2012 then pursued an audacious agenda, expanding coverage and hiring journalists in an era when nearly all other newspaper owners were trying to avoid cutting both.

The Return of the Moguls chronicles a story in the making. Is a return to old-style individual ownership sparking a renaissance for the newspaper business, and if so, how?

About the author

Dan Kennedy is an associate professor of journalism at Northeastern University and a nationally known media commentator. He is a panelist on WGBH-TV’s Beat the Press and writes on the news media for WGBHNews.org, the Nieman Journalism Lab and other publications. He previously wrote a media column for The Guardian and, before that, for The Boston Phoenix. His website, Media Nation, can be found at dankennedy.net.

Kennedy’s new book, The Return of the Moguls: How Jeff Bezos and John Henry Are Remaking Newspapers for the Twenty-First Century, will be published in 2018 by ForeEdge. His previous book, The Wired City: Reimagining Journalism and Civic Life in the Post-Newspaper Age, examines the rise of the New Haven Independent and other digital-only community news organizations. His first book, Little People: Learning to See the World Through My Daughter’s Eyes, is a memoir about raising a child with dwarfism.

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.
