misc_none 12:30 PM  -  1:30 PM Auburn Page Turners - Your Heart is a Muscle the Size of a Fist Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Grief-stricken after his mother's death and three years of wandering the world, Victor is longing for a family and a sense of purpose. He believes he's found both when he returns home to Seattle only to be swept up in a massive protest. With young, biracial Victor on one side of the barricades and his estranged father--the white chief of police--on the opposite, the day descends into chaos, capturing in its confusion the activists, police, bystanders, and citizens from all around the world who'd arrived that day brimming with hope. By the day's end, they have all committed acts they never thought possible. 

As heartbreaking as it is pulse-pounding, Yapa's virtuosic debut asks profound questions about the power of empathy in our hyper-connected modern world, and the limits of compassion, all while exploring how far we must go for family, for justice, and for love.

misc_none 2:00 PM  -  3:30 PM Dear Parent: A Biography and Letters of Edward Little Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Author Douglas Hodgkin will present his newly published full-length biography of Edward Little (1773–1849). Dear Parent: A Biography and Letters of Edward Little, details Little's early career as a businessman, lawyer, and politician in Newburyport, Massachusetts, until two disasters resulted in massive debt. Little then went to Portland, Maine, to manage the business affairs of his father and of the Pejepscot Proprietors’ land company. Finally, at the age of fifty-three, he settled in Danville, now Auburn,where he founded what became Edward Little High School. Less well known is the role of the Little family in founding a church, bridges, railroads, and the mills at the falls, until the latter were taken over by Boston-based investors. This is the story of a remarkable life. This book also contains the letters that Edward Little addressed to “Dear Parent,” his father, Josiah, that are owned by the Androscoggin Historical Society. They depict the early conditions in the development of the Androscoggin Valley, relations between the Littles and the settlers, and the relations among the Little family themselves. This provides a fascinating look at life in a rural Maine settlement.

About the Author
Douglas I. Hodgkin, a native of Lewiston, Maine, is Professor Emeritus of Political Science at Bates College. He is the author of several books about local history, including Lewiston Memories, Historic Lewiston:The Grange at Crowley’s Junction, Frontier to Industrial City: Lewiston Town Politics 1768-1863, The Baptists of Court Street, The Lewiston and Auburn Railroad Company, and Lewiston Politics in the Gilded Age 1863-1900.

misc_none 12:00 PM  -  2:00 PM Alan Elze on The Shroud of Turin Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

The Shroud of Turin or Turin Shroud, a length of linen cloth bearing the image of a man, is believed by some to be the burial shroud of Jesus of Nazareth, The shroud is kept in the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, northern Italy. The Catholic Church has neither formally endorsed nor rejected the shroud, but in 1958 Pope Pius XII approved of the image in association with the devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus.

The origins of the shroud and its images are the subject of intense debate among theologians, historians and researchers. Diverse arguments have been made in scientific and popular publications claiming to prove that the cloth is the authentic burial shroud of Jesus, based on disciplines ranging from chemistry to biology and medical forensics to optical image analysis

There has been much written on what the Shroud of Turin is and how it came to be.   Elze will look at its history and possible conclusions of its origin. This program is a brought to you by a joint partnership with the Lewiston-Auburn Senior College.

misc_none 4:30 PM  -  6:00 PM Great Stories Club: Structures of Suffering Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

"Structures of Suffering: Origins of Teen Violence and Suicide"

The APL, selected as one of 75 Great Stories Club grant recipients, will work with a group of teens to read and discuss three books over the course of the spring.  In each of these books, protagonists deal with issues surrounding teen violence, bullying and suicide.  The books titles within this theme include: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini, and Romeo & Juliet (No Fear Shakespeare), illustrated by Matt Weigle.

At this, our final meeting, we will discuss all 3 books and how the themes fit together, celebrate the completion of the Great Stories Club with pizza and/or ice cream, complete the final program survey, and award Certificates of Achievement.

Teens interested in getting involved in this group must contact Donna at 333-6640, ext. 4.

Within this summer's theme, "Build A Better World," teens will have a chance to explore environmental and sustainability issues and what they can do to help build a better world for their generation-- and future generations.  For our kickoff, we welcome the Natural Resources Council of Maine.   More details on this and other programs will be coming soon!

This summer's Teen Reading Program will run for 6 weeks, from June 28-August 9.  In addition to reading, programs and activities will include a river walk along the Androscoggin (with Androscoggin Land Trust), an opportunity to design a tiny house using Sketch Up and our 3D printer, an upcycle DIY, a composting workshop and more!  We also will bring back our Pizza & Pages Book Club, where we will read and discuss 3 books -- "Ashfall" by Mike Mullin, "Not A Drop to Drink" by Mindy McGinnis, and "Trashed" by Derf Backderf.  

For each book read and for each program attended, teens will have a chance to enter into a weekly drawing.  The grand prize this year, a digital camera, will be awarded to the top reader (books must be read between June 28-August 9).

The Teen Summer Reading Program is just for teens, ages 12-18 (entering 7th through 12th grade).
