Great Presenters Series
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

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 Dry

 

The Dry by Jane Harper

After getting a note demanding his presence, Federal Agent Aaron Falk arrives in his hometown for the first time in decades to attend the funeral of his best friend, Luke. Twenty years ago when Falk was accused of murder, Luke was his alibi. Falk and his father fled under a cloud of suspicion, saved from prosecution only because of Luke's steadfast claim that the boys had been together at the time of the crime. But now more than one person knows they didn't tell the truth back then, and Luke is dead. Amid the worst drought in a century, Falk and the local detective question what really happened to Luke. As Falk reluctantly investigates to see if there's more to Luke's death than there seems to be, long-buried mysteries resurface, as do the lies that have haunted them.

Ted Reinstein: New England's General Stores
7:00 PM - 8:45 PM

 

The general store is literally as old as America itself. It hearkens back to a simpler time and a more innocent and rural nation. It conjures a country-like place where kids come in to by penny candy, and adults to buy everything from swaths of fabric, to fresh vegetables, to four-penny nails. It was a place to pick up mail, the newspaper, and perhaps tarry a bit on a cold, winter’s morning to chat over a cup of coffee and a warm wood stove. And in tough times, it was a place that often treated customers like family, extending credit when no one else would. Deeply woven into America’s cultural identity from its earliest days, the general store was an integral part of the nation’s self-portrait.

In New England’s General Stores: Exploring an American Classic, broadcast journalist Ted Reinstein explores the rich and colorful history of this iconic institution, how it figured in the rise of early American commerce, why it began to fade, and why it has begun to come back and even be re-invented and re-imagined for a new era. Ted’s presentation is accompanied by the award-winning photography of Art Donahue.  Afterwards, Ted will take questions and sign copies of the book.

 Dystopian & Sci-Fi Book Club

Wednesday, May 9th, 7pm. Join us for a discussion of the future as seen in books.. Making sense of our world, one book at a time.

THE UNIT is a gripping exploration of a society in the throes of an experiment, in which the "dispensable" ones are convinced under gentle coercion of the importance of sacrificing for the "necessary" ones. Ninni Holmqvist has created a debut novel of humor, sorrow, and rage about love, the close bonds of friendship, and about a cynical, utilitarian way of thinking disguised as care.

We will meet upstairs in the Mezzanine.

A Country Road, a Tree by Jo Baker

The pavement rumbles with the footfall of Nazi soldiers marching along the Champs-Elysees. A young, unknown writer--Samuel Beckett--recently arrived from Ireland to make his mark, smokes one last cigarette with his lover before the city they know is torn apart. Soon he will put them both in mortal danger by joining the Resistance . . . Through it all, we are witness to the workings of a uniquely brilliant mind struggling to create a language that will express this shattered world. Here is a remarkable story of survival and determination, and a portrait of the extremes of human experience alchemized into one man's timeless art.

Jim Antal: Climate Church, Climate World
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Climate Church, Climate World argues that climate change is the greatest moral challenge humanity has ever faced. Hunger, refugees, poverty, inequality, deadly viruses, war—climate change multiplies all forms of global social injustice. Environmental leader Reverend Jim Antal presents a compelling case that it’s time for the church to meet this moral challenge, just as the church addressed previous moral challenges. Antal calls for the church to embrace a new vocation so that future generations might live in harmony with God’s creation. After describing how we have created the dangers our planet now faces, Antal urges the church to embrace a new vocation, one focused on collective salvation and an expanded understanding of the Golden Rule (Golden Rule 2.0). He suggests ways people of faith can reorient what they prize through new approaches to worship, preaching, witnessing and other spiritual practices that honor creation and cultivate hope.

The Reverend Dr. Jim Antal serves the Massachusetts Conference of the United Church of Christ as the Conference Minister and President. Antal’s leadership in the areas of the environment and climate change is noteworthy. Most recently, he authored the resolution to divest the UCC from fossil fuel companies which passed in 2013. He has also engaged the spiritual discipline of civil disobedience numerous times, most recently at the White House to stop the Keystone XL pipeline. He provides leadership for the Mass. Conference Environmental Ministries group and regularly convenes the New England Regional Environmental Ministries reps from the six New England UCC Conferences. He speaks frequently in churches, regionally and nationally on the essential role people of faith must play to counter climate change

Dr. Daniela Lamas: You Can Stop Humming Now
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

A critical care doctor's breathtaking stories about what it means to be saved by modern medicine.

Modern medicine is a world that glimmers with new technology and cutting-edge research. To the public eye, medical stories often begin with sirens and flashing lights and culminate in survival or death. But these are only the most visible narratives. As a critical care doctor treating people at their sickest, Daniela Lamas is fascinated by a different story: what comes after for those whose lives are extended by days, months, or years as a result of our treatments and technologies?

In You Can Stop Humming Now, Lamas explores the complex answers to this question through intimate accounts of patients and their families. A grandfather whose failing heart has been replaced by a battery-operated pump; a salesman who found himself a kidney donor on social media; a college student who survived a near fatal overdose and returned home, alive but not the same; and a young woman navigating an adulthood she never thought she'd live to see-these moving narratives paint a detailed picture of the fragile border between sickness and health.

Riveting, beautifully told, and deeply personal, You Can Stop Humming Now is a compassionate, uncompromising look at the choices and realities that many of us, and our families, may one day face.

Daniela Lamas is a pulmonary and critical care doctor at the Brigham & Women's Hospital and faculty at Harvard Medical School. Following graduation from Harvard College, she went on to earn her MD at Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons, where she also completed internship and residency. She then returned to Boston for her subspecialty fellowship. She has worked as a medical reporter at the Miami Herald and is frequently published in the New York Times. This is her first book.

Breaking Ground: Henry B. Hoover, New England Modern Architect
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Interested in Modern architecture?  This illustrated talk will introduce two examples in Wayland by New England architect, Henry B. Hoover (1902-1989).  These houses will be discussed in the context of Hoover’s career as a Modern residential architect practicing from the late 1930s to the early 1970s.  Harvard-trained, Hoover developed his own "brand” of design that was informed by, but different from, the normative, Bauhaus-driven idea of modern architecture.  Beginning with his own house of 1937, the first modern house in Lincoln, his practice grew to include clients in neighboring New England Massachusetts towns including Wayland, Weston, Lincoln, Lexington, Belmont, Leominster, Gloucester, and Newton, as well as Jaffrey, New Hampshire, Thomasville, Georgia, and Miami, Florida. Notable about Hoover’s houses is that they exhibit a satisfying synthesis of the exceptional and the livable, always tailored to a particular client and site.  The publication Breaking Ground:  Henry B. Hoover, New England Modern Architect (University Press of New England, 2015), which examines all aspects of Hoover’s career, will be available for purchase and signing at the talk.

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.

The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd

Writing at the height of her narrative and imaginative gifts, Sue Monk Kidd presents a masterpiece of hope, daring, the quest for freedom, and the desire to have a voice in the world. Inspired by the historical figure of Sarah Grimke, Kidd goes beyond the record to flesh out the rich interior lives of all of her characters, both real and invented. This exquisitely written novel is a triumph of storytelling that looks with unswerving eyes at a devastating wound in American history, through women whose struggles for liberation, empowerment, and expression will leave no reader unmoved.

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

Author Eric Jay Dolin will discuss his recently released book Black Flags, Blue Waters which 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 beyond. 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. Through engrossing episodes of roguish glamour and extreme brutality, 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. Also brilliantly detailed are the pirates’ manifold enemies, including colonial governor John Winthrop, evangelist Cotton Mather, and young Benjamin Franklin. Upending popular misconceptions and cartoonish stereotypes, Dolin provides this wholly original account of the seafaring outlaws whose raids reflect the precarious nature of American colonial life.
