misc_none 6:00 PM  -  7:00 PM Climate Change: Are We Pushing the Limits Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Climate change is a complicated topic which continues to be, no pun intended, hotly debated. Thanks to a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Science Foundation, the Auburn Public Library will work with NOAA scientists to provide a series of interactive events to examine climate trends on the state of Maine. The first of the monthly hour long programs begins on September 7th at 6 pm with programs to follow on October 5th at 6 pm and November 9th at 6 pm.

Pushing the Limits, or PLACE, consists of programs designed to engage community discussion with professional guidance provided by NOAA scientist. Nikki Becker, of the National Weather Serivce in Gray, will be the facilitator for what is sure to be some fascinating discussions. The events are something of a science café and book club hybrid with each event organized around a different theme - community, change, or strategy. Questions will be raised such as what is climate change, what extreme weather trends are worrisome, and how our local communities are preparing to protect citizens against extreme weather events.

Prior to each program, participants will be asked to read portions of “The Thinking Person’s Guide to Climate Change” by Robert Henson. Copies of the book may be picked up at the second floor desk at the Auburn Public Library. Space is limited so those wishing to participate must register when they come to pick up their book.

misc_none 12:30 PM  -  1:30 PM Auburn Page Turners - Lab Girl Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Vladimir Nabokov once observed that “a writer should have the precision of a poet and the imagination of a scientist.” The geobiologist Hope Jahren possesses both in spades. Her engrossing new memoir, “Lab Girl,” is at once a thrilling account of her discovery of her vocation and a gifted teacher’s road map to the secret lives of plants — a book that, at its best, does for botany what Oliver Sacks’s essays did for neurology, what Stephen Jay Gould’s writings did for paleontology.

misc_none 6:00 PM  -  7:00 PM Climate Change: Are We Pushing the Limits Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Climate change is a complicated topic which continues to be, no pun intended, hotly debated. Thanks to a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National Science Foundation, the Auburn Public Library will work with NOAA scientists to provide a series of interactive events to examine climate trends on the state of Maine. The first of the monthly hour long programs begins on September 7th at 6 pm with programs to follow on October 5th at 6 pm and November 9th at 6 pm.

Pushing the Limits, or PLACE, consists of programs designed to engage community discussion with professional guidance provided by NOAA scientist. Nikki Becker, of the National Weather Serivce in Gray, will be the facilitator for what is sure to be some fascinating discussions. The events are something of a science café and book club hybrid with each event organized around a different theme - community, change, or strategy. Questions will be raised such as what is climate change, what extreme weather trends are worrisome, and how our local communities are preparing to protect citizens against extreme weather events.

Prior to each program, participants will be asked to read portions of “The Thinking Person’s Guide to Climate Change” by Robert Henson. Copies of the book may be picked up at the second floor desk at the Auburn Public Library. Space is limited so those wishing to participate must register when they come to pick up their book.
