Renowned Dublin minstrel Paul Carroll will recall the lush green fields of Ireland to prepare us for Saint Patrick’s Day.  Paul grew up in  Dublin during the ballad boom of the sixties where the pubs were packed  with folk singers and ballad groups. It is there that he found a love  for the music and songs that were to be part of his life. Paul emigrated to Australia  in the early 70’s but  he never strayed very far from the music, singing  in the folk clubs of Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. During his time in  Melbourne he was a founding member of the Celtic band, Poteen, who were  Australia’s premiere Celtic band, sharing the  stage with icons like Eric Bogle, The Dubliners, The Fury’s and Boys of the Lough.

The goal of TEDx Amesbury Public Library is to introduce TED talks to our community. Each quarter we will show a series of dynamic TED talks on a central theme and then have a short discussion on what we have seen. Our March meeting will focus on the theme of our relationship with social media.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics, from science to business to global issues, in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

Richard Mullen, a professional speaker and the creator/presenter of Laugh Yourself Healthy, has changed direction in his new presentation The Robots Are Coming. Over the years he has entertained thousands of people throughout New England and Florida recommending laughter and humor as a way to improve both physical and mental health. Richards’s new presentation offers a look at the future of energy and transportation. Mullen talks about the new careers that will come out of these major social and cultural disruptions. The massive changes require trained specialists to assist friends, neighbors, and business associates to transition into the new technologies of a rapidly changing world. Some say this change will dwarf the dot.com boom.  As the automobile made the horse and carriage obsolete; solar, wind and robots will disrupt our view of energy. What was once science fiction is now scientific fact. Join us for a journey into the next ten years of disruption.

This month we are reading: Cascade by Maryanne O'Hara

Summary: It's1935. Desdemona Hart Spaulding, a gifted, Paris-trained artist, has married in haste, in the once-thriving summer town of Cascade, to provide a home for her dying father and save the
family's renowned Shakespeare theater. Now Cascade is on the short list to be flooded to provide drinking water for Boston, MA, and Dez's growing discontent is complicated by her attraction to Jacob, a fellow artist. When tragic events unfold, Dez makes bad choices that force her to answer hard questions: Must she keep her promises? Is it morally possible to set herself free?

This month we are reading: The Book of Unknown Americans by Christina Henriquez
 

Summary:Cristina Henríquez’s powerful novel The Book of Unknown Americans captures readers with the quiet beauty of her characters and their profoundly wrought experiences as immigrants in America. The story takes place in a run-down apartment building in Delaware, home to nine families who arrived in the States from various South and Central American countries, each looking to better the lives of the next generation. In alternating chapters, these men and women share stories of how their adopted country has left its mark on them, for better and worse. The close bond that develops between the Rivera and Toro families drives the novel forward, particularly the relationship between their children Mayor and Maribel, as closely held secrets and feelings of guilt, love, hope, and despair are unpacked with warmth and compassion. With her cast of “unknown Americans,” Henriquez has crafted a novel that is inspiring, tragic, brave, and above all, unforgettable.

The goal of TEDx Amesbury Public Library is to introduce TED talks to our community. Each quarter we will show a series of dynamic TED talks on a central theme and then have a short discussion on what we have seen. Our June meeting will focus on the theme of delaying or ending aging.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics, from science to business to global issues, in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

    Contact: Kim Butler   978-388-8148   kbutler@mvlc.org
   

The Amesbury Public Library is proud to welcome New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen! A graduate of Stanford University, Tess went to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, where she was awarded her M.D. While on maternity leave from her work as a physician, she began to write fiction. In 1987, her first novel was published. Call After Midnight, a romantic thriller, was followed by eight more romantic suspense novels. Tess’s first medical thriller, Harvest, was released in hardcover in 1996, and it marked her debut on the New York Times bestseller list. Her books have been published in 40 countries, and more than 30 million copies have been sold around the world. Her series of crime novels featuring homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles inspired the hit television series “Rizzoli & Isles,” starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander. Now retired from medicine, Tess writes full time. She lives in Maine.

This program will take place after the library closes for the day; please enter through the ramp door entrance.

Space is limited, sign up required.
