The Ladies' Paradise by Emile Zola

The Ladies Paradise (Au Bonheur des Dames) recounts the rise of the modern department store in late nineteenth-century Paris. The store is a symbol of capitalism, of the modern city, and of the bourgeois family: it is emblematic of changes in consumer culture and the changes in sexual attitudes and class relations taking place at the end of the century. This new translation of the eleventh novel in the Rougon-Macquart cycle captures the spirit of one of Zola's greatest works.

Getting the most out of your visit with your doctor
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Good communication lies at the foundation of the patient-doctor relationship and is vitally important for good health outcomes. And yet, the ever-increasing pressure on physicians to do more in less time undercuts the quality of this communication, putting patients at risk.

In his talk, Dennis Rosen, M.D., author of Vital Conversations: Improving Communication Between Doctors and Patients, will discuss some of the reasons why this communication often founders and will offer concrete suggestions on how you can get the most out of visits with your doctors.

Dennis Rosen, M.D. is a pediatric pulmonologist at Boston Children's Hospital and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Rosen writes regularly for the medical press as well as for The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and The Pacific Standard. His book, Vital Conversations: Improving Communication Between Doctors And Patients was published in 2014 by Columbia University Press. His website, dennisrosenmd.com, is devoted to improving the quality of communication within our medical system to achieve better results, lower costs, and greater satisfaction for all involved. He lives in Newton with his wife and three children.

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.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN THE 21ST CENTURY

The U.S. and the international community have adopted various treaties and laws to prevent trafficking, but to truly understand and combat the issue, they must find the root causes enabling traffickers to exploit millions of victims.

Human trafficking represents a multibillion in international trade per annum and continues to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries. While undeniably a global phenomenon, the U.S., as one of the world’s leading human trafficking importers, bears a special responsibility to combat this practice. The U.S. and the international community have adopted various treaties and laws to prevent trafficking, but to truly understand and combat the issue, they must find the root causes enabling traffickers to exploit millions of victims.

BRAZIL'S METAMORPHOSIS

Some of Brazil’s trickiest problems — deep divisions over how to tackle serious income inequality, weak civic institutions and poor regional leadership — have held it back.

Brazil — it’s the “B” in the acronym BRICS, five emerging economies once seen as soon-to-be superpowers. After economic troubles in the 1990s, Brazil has risen to new global prominence — it’s drawing in more investment, working on global issues ranging from climate change to peacekeeping, and even hosting the 2016 Olympics. But some of Brazil’s trickiest problems — deep divisions over how to tackle serious income inequality, weak civic institutions and poor regional leadership — have held it back.

A man discovers it's harder to scandalize his family than he expected in this comedy.  Vincenzo has devoted most of his life to building up the successful pasta company founded by his grandfather, and now that he's getting older he plans to hand over the business to his sons, Antonio and Tommaso. While Antonio has been working at Vincenzo's side for years, his brother has been living in Rome with his boyfriend.  Tommaso's parents don't know that he's gay and uninterested in the family business.  When Vincenzo wants a family meeting to discuss his future role, Tommaso comes up with a plan -- he'll tell his parents that he's gay, and they'll be so shocked they'll hand the reigns over to Antonio….or so he thinks.  The film received its North American premiere at the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival.  (110 minutes)

A Trip to the Beach : Living on Island Time in the Caribbean

 

A Trip to the Beach:  Living on Island time in the Caribbean by Melinda Blanchard
This is the story of a trip to the beach that never ends. It's about a husband and wife who escape civilization to build a small restaurant on an island paradise -- and discover that even paradise has its pitfalls. It's a story filled with calamities and comedy, culinary disasters and triumphs, and indelible portraits of people who live and work on a sliver of beauty set in the Caribbean Sea. It's about the maddening, exhausting, outlandish complications of trying to live the simple life -- and the joy that comes when you somehow pull it off.

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.
