We Love You, Charlie FreemanWe Love You, Charlie Freeman by Kaitlyn Greenidge 

The Freeman family--Charles, Laurel, and their daughters, teenage Charlotte and nine-year-old Callie--have been invited to the Toneybee Institute in rural Massachusetts to participate in a research experiment. They will live in an apartment on campus with Charlie, a young chimp abandoned by his mother. The Freemans were selected for the experiment because they know sign language; they are supposed to teach it to Charlie and welcome him as a member of their family. Isolated in their new, nearly all-white community not just by their race but by their strange living situation, the Freemans come undone. And when Charlotte discovers the truth about the Institute’s history of questionable studies, the secrets of the past begin to invade the present.

It Can’t Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis

A cautionary tale about the fragility of democracy, It Can't Happen Here is an alarming, eerily timeless look at how fascism could take hold in America. Written during the Great Depression, when the country was largely oblivious to Hitler's aggression, it juxtaposes sharp political satire with the chillingly realistic rise of a president who becomes a dictator to save the nation from welfare cheats, sex, crime, and a liberal press.  This is a shockingly prescient novel that remains as fresh and contemporary as today's news.

Lillian Boxfish Takes a WalkLillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney

Lillian Boxfish took 1930s New York by storm, working her way up writing copy to become the highest paid advertising woman in the country. Now it's the last night of 1984 and Lillian, 85 years old but just as sharp and savvy as ever, is on her way to a party. Manhattan is grittier now, but the quick-tongued poetess has never been one to scare easily. On a walk that takes her over 10 miles around the city, she meets bartenders, bodega clerks, security guards, criminals, children, parents, and parents-to-be, while reviewing a life of excitement and adversity, passion and heartbreak, illuminating all the ways New York has changed-- and has not.

Herb Kavet: “REMOTE AND EXCITING TRAVEL BY BICYCLE”

You can’t see the world from the window of an air conditioned bus. Not really. Biking provides more intimate contact. You can easily meet the local people, whether primitive or sophisticated, because you are traveling in such an unthreatening and often locally acceptable manner. I’ll be talking about adventures and encounters mostly in Third World countries.

Herb Kavet graduated MIT in 1958 as an engineer but spent most of his life as an entrepreneur and writer. He wrote hundreds of short humor books which his wife likes to describe as being of questionable taste. Still, all got published mainly because he owned the publishing company.  Currently retired at 80, he skis all winter, bikes all summer and plays with his grandchildren in between.

The Story of a Brief Marriage by Anuk Arudpragasam

In the last months of the Sri Lankan Civil War, Dinesh's world has contracted to an evacuee camp, where he measures his days by shells that fall like clockwork. Alienated from language, home, and family, he is brought back to life by an unexpected proposal from an old man in the camp: that he marry his daughter, Ganga. In the hours they spend together, Dinesh and Ganga attempt to awaken to one another, to reclaim their humanity. Anuk Arudpragasam's novel is a feat of stunning imaginative empathy, a meditation on the bare elements of human existence that give life its pulse and purpose, even in the face of atrocity.

Mountain to Mountain:  A Journey of Adventure and Activism for the Women of Afghanistan by Shannon Galpin

Being inspired to act can take many forms. For some it's taking a weekend to volunteer, but for Shannon Galpin, it meant leaving her career, selling her house, launching a nonprofit and committing her life to advancing education and opportunity for women and girls. Focusing on the war-torn country of Afghanistan, Galpin and her organization, Mountain2Mountain, have touched the lives of hundreds of men, women and children. As if launching a nonprofit wasn't enough, in 2009 Galpin became the first woman to ride a mountain bike in Afghanistan. Now she's using that initial bike ride to gain awareness around the country, encouraging people to use their bikes "as a vehicle for social change and justice to support a country where women don't have the right to ride a bike."

Linda Harrar: “WILDWAYS: CORRIDORS OF LIFE”

Wildlife the world over need to roam for breeding, foraging, and to carry out their traditional migrations – but they are often blocked by ranches, farms, roads and other human-made obstacles. Now there’s new hope for wildlife through an approach called “connectivity conservation.” Wild Ways reveals through stunning cinematography how lions, bears, antelope and elephants – can be preserved.. From North America’s Yellowstone to Yukon, to Southern Africa’s elephant highways stretching across five nations, animals are on the move again in Wild Ways.

Linda Harrar of WGBH (Channel 2) Boston will present a 20-minute clip and talk about the documentary.

Mutiny on the Bounty
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The Bounty was an nondescript vessel in a navy full of famous vessels.  Her captain, William Bligh, was a competent officer and stern disciplinarian but not as harsh as many of his peers.  Following a stay of nearly five months in tahiti, the Bounty was headed home for England.  Twenty-four days later a mutiny occured and Bligh and 18 men were put in an open boat.  The Bounty would sailed away seeking safe haven.  What happened to the men in the open boat? What happened to the mutineers? And what was the reaction of the Royal Navy upon learning that one of its ships had been taken in a mutiny?  For the answers, we go back to Bligh's log and the Royal Navy records.
 
Bob Begin grew up in Maine, graduated from Babson College, served 2 years active duty in the Army, and had a career of 35 years in the paper and film industry culminating as a Logisitcs Director. The love of history continues to be very rewarding as he enjoys retirement.  Hi major focus is on Naval History with emphasis on the Pacific Theater on WWII.  He is also intrigued with the Concept Of Empire and how it shaped history throughout the world.

Barbary Coast Pirates of the 1800's and Somali Pirates of Today
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

In the early 1800's ,the Barbary Sates attacked American and other Western vessels and held the crew and ship for ransom.  America was at that time a small nation trying to expand commerce in the Mediterranean and paid tribute to the  pirates.  Approximately 200 years later, piracy surfaced in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Somalia and caused significant problems to vessels transiting this area including an American vessel, the Maersk Alabama.  The structure of the pirate gangs and their techniques are discussed along with the economic and political causes. 

Bob Begin grew up in Maine, graduated from Babson College, served 2 years active duty in the Army, and had a career of 35 years in the paper and film industry culminating as a Logisitcs Director. The love of history continues to be very rewarding as he enjoys retirement.  Hi major focus is on Naval History with emphasis on the Pacific Theater on WWII.  He is also intrigued with the Concept Of Empire and how it shaped history throughout the world.

I'm a Stranger Here Myself by Bill Bryson

Delivering the brilliant comic musings that are a Bryson hallmark, I'm a Stranger Here Myself recounts his sometimes disconcerting reunion with the land of his birth. The result is a book filled with hysterical scenes of one man's attempt to reacquaint himself with his own country, but is also a love letter to the homeland he has returned to after twenty years away.

John Landry: “ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) AND MACHINE LEARNING (ML) – THIS TIME IT’S FOR REAL…AND IT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING”

For nearly 20 years Artificial Intelligence floundered as a technology that never delivered results. That era is over! Aided by stunning advances in hardware performance and cloud computing, the AI software concepts conceived in the 80’s and enhanced over the last five years are starting a revolution in “machine learning” (ML), enabling computers to perform “human-like” tasks (image and speech recognition, language translation, text understanding, etc.) at speeds and accuracy only dreamed of a few years ago. Long-time tech visionary and serial tech executive John Landry will provide a lively discussion on what ML is, why it’s important and what might happen when machines exceed humans in intelligence (aka “super-intelligence”). 

John Landry continues a 40+ year career in tech where he’s been an Angel Investor in 80+ Senior Tech Exec/CTO of 12 (e.g. Lotus, Cullinet, IBM), a Co-Founder of 6 and a Board Director of 45.

The program is 100% family friendly, but due to the nature of the subject matter, it is recommended for ages 12 and up.

Preston's requested form of payment is a collection for our local food pantry which we think is the best kind of honorarium. Don't you think so?  Please bring something with you for donation.

Hendrik Broekman: “LIVING THE HARPSICHORD LIFE”

Harpsichords, despite being real, stubbornly remain less well understood than unicorns by most folk, aficionados aside.  This program is intended to shed light on the making, music and other fascinations of this near-mythical instrument.  It is hoped that one might make a personal appearance.

Hendrik Broekman has been involved with harpsichords all his adult life, both as maker and player.   He progressed to his own shop in 1972.  Since 1979 he has served as the Technical Director of Hubbard Harpsichords.

Havana:  A Subtropical Delirium by Mark Kulansky 

The author presents an insider's view of Havana: the elegant, tattered city he has come to know over more than thirty years. Part cultural history, part travelogue, with recipes, historic engravings, photographs, and his own pen-and-ink drawings throughout, Havana celebrates the city's music, literature, baseball, food, architecture and its extraordinary blend of cultures.
