Foreign Film Series - The Wedding Banquet (Xi Yan)
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Movie PosterA gay New Yorker stages a marriage of convenience with a young woman to satisfy his traditional Taiwanese family, but the wedding becomes a major inconvenience when his parents fly in for the ceremony. Director Ang Lee came to international prominence with this warm-hearted comedy, which centers on the farcical confusion that emerges from this deception. Gao Wai Tung has never shared the truth about his sexuality with his family, and hopes to disguise his long-term relationship with his lover Simon by marrying Wei-Wei, a young artist who's only it for the green card. But Wai Tung's parents refuse to let him off the hook easily, showing up to plan a massive wedding banquet. Indeed, much of the film's comedy springs from the contrast between the sheer lavishness of the parents' plans and the sham nature of the wedding. Naturally, the party spins out of control, leading to a series of events that threatens all of Wai Tung's relationships.  (Mandarin with English Subtitles, 106 minutes)

Sideways on a Scooter : Life and Love in India

Sideways on a Scooter:  Life and Love in India by Miranda Kennedy

When twenty-something reporter Miranda Kennedy leaves her job in New York City and travels to India with no employment prospects, she longs to immerse herself in the turmoil and excitement of a rapidly developing country. What she quickly learns in Delhi are early signs that life is less Westernized than she’d thought.  Living in Delhi for more than five years, and finding a city pulsing with possibility and hope, Kennedy experiences friendships, love affairs, and losses that open a window onto the opaque world of Indian politics and culture—and alter her own attitudes about everything from food and clothes to marriage and family.

Wicked Pissed with Ted Reinstein
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

New England is as dotted with colorful and fascinating feuds as it is with low stone walls and big, red barns. And many of them go back just as far! For instance, did you know that the Breeds and the Bunkers are still fighting over a hill? Or that the revolution is still being fought—by Lexington and Concord?! From the colonial era, through early aviation (CT claims the Wright Bros. are wrong), to Red Sox-Yankees and present-day food fights, Ted Reinstein tells us who’s really “Wicked Pissed” in New England, and why.  (Followed by Q&A, and book-selling/signing.)

Since 1995, Ted has been a reporter for Boston’s WCVB-TV’s “Chronicle,” the nation’s longest-running locally-produced nightly newsmagazine.  He also provides reports and commentary on Sunday mornings for the station’s political roundtable show, “On The Record.”  Ted has been a member of the WCVB editorial board since 2010.

Internet Privacy for Library Patrons
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join Library Freedom Project founder Alison Macrina for a discussion of how you can better maintain your privacy from government snoops, corporate trackers, and the hacking industry.

In an age where much of our lives are spent online, where we share increasing amounts of personal information with software providers in exchange for services, it’s starting to feel like our privacy is being eradicated. Some of us are uneasy about the influence and access of huge online corporations like Google and Facebook. Others are concerned about overbroad government surveillance from the NSA and FBI. Still more of us are concerned merely by how much of our information is discoverable by hackers who might seek to exploit us. Our online privacy is being compromised, but the good news is that there are technology tools to help us fight back. Alison Macrina, a librarian and privacy rights activist, will present an online privacy toolkit that offers some basic solutions to help subvert digital spying. These tools address things like search tracking, encryption, password protection, secure deletion of temporary files, secure browsing, and online anonymity.

The Teleportation Accident
The Teleportation Accident
By Beauman, Ned

From the author of the acclaimed Boxer, Beetle, comes a historical novel that doesn't know what year it is; a noir novel that turns all the lights on; a romance novel that arrives drunk to dinner; a science fiction novel that can't remember what isotope means; a stunningly inventive, exceptionally funny, dangerously unsteady and (largely) coherent novel about sex, violence, space, time, and how the best way to deal with history is to ignore it.

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

“RICHARD POWERS – THE SURREAL LIFE OF A SCIENCE FICTION ARTIST”
Richard Powers, who used the name Gorman Powers on his non-commercial work, had his first appearance on Ballantine paperbacks in the 1950's.  His career spanned over four decades during which he produced jacket illustrations for some 1,200 science fiction novels. Now he is widely regarded as the single most influential artist in the history of paperback illustrative art and is also considered to be an artist of great influence. Richard Powers is among the Society of Illustrators’ newest Hall of Fame inductees, along with Beatrix Potter and others. Since 1958, The Society Of Illustrators has elected to its Hall of Fame artists recognized for their "distinguished achievement in the art of illustration."

Kathy Powers Sherry, a 20 year Wayland resident, and CUNY American Studies Professor Richard Gid Powers, the artist's children, will discuss their father’s prolific career as both one of the top Science Fiction cover illustrators of the twentieth century and a fine artist, as well as, of course, a dad.

6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Movie PosterArgentinian filmmaker Alejandro Agresti turns his lens to his own childhood in this nostalgic coming-of-age tale. Set in the director's hometown of Buenos Aires circa 1964, Valentin centers around its title character (and ostensible stand-in for the director), a nine-year-old boy whose feuding parents have left him to be raised by his sage, eccentric grandmother. With his father visiting only occasionally, Valentin is left to look to the other men in the neighborhood for father figures, and to replace his absent mother, he warms to Leticia, one of his father's many short-term girlfriends. When he tells her personal secrets about his father, however, Valentin jeopardizes their relationship.  Spanish with English Subtitles, 86 minutes)

Documentary Film Event - Manufactured Landscapes
11:30 AM - 1:30 PM

 

Manufactured Landscapes is a feature length documentary on the world and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky who makes large-scale photographs of 'manufactured landscapes' – quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines, dams. He photographs civilization's materials and debris, but in a way people describe as "stunning" or "beautiful," and so raises all kinds of questions about ethics and aesthetics without trying to easily answer them. The Armchair Travel Book Club presents this film after reading Visit Sunny Chernobyl by Andrew Blackwell in March. The author referenced the artist and this film. All are welcome.

Brilliant Beacons: A History of the American Lighthouse
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

In a work rich in maritime lore and brimming with original historical detail, Eric Jay Dolin, the best-selling author of Leviathan, will be at the library to talk about his latest book, "Brilliant Beacons: A History of the American Lighthouse," which has been called the most comprehensive history of American lighthouses ever written. It tells the story of America through the prism of its beloved coastal sentinels. Set against the backdrop of an expanding nation, the book  traces the evolution of America’s lighthouse system, highlighting the political, military, and technological battles fought to illuminate the nation’s hardscrabble coastlines. It features a memorable cast of characters including the penny-pinching Treasury official Stephen Pleasonton, who hamstrung the country’s efforts to adopt the revolutionary “Fresnel Lens,” and presents tales both humorous and harrowing of soldiers, saboteurs, ruthless egg collectors, and most importantly, the light-keepers themselves.
