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.

GREAT PRESENTERS: Kathy Powers Sherry & Richard Gid Powers
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.

Foreign Film Series - Valentin
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Argentinian 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.
