Lives in Ruins: Archaeologists and the Seductive Lure of Human Rubble
by Marilyn Johnson
Published by HarperCollins, 2014

Marilyn Johnson is the author of two other acclaimed books about quirky subcultures - The Dead Beat (about obituary writers) and This Book Is Overdue! (about librarians). In Lives in Ruins she brings her irrepressible wit and curiosity to bear on yet another strange world, that of archaeologists. 

Johnson tracks archaeologists around the globe from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean, from Newport, Rhode Island to Machu Picchu. She digs alongside experts on an eighteenth-century sugar plantation and in a first-century temple to Apollo. She hunts for bodies with forensics archaeologists in the vast and creepy Pine Barrens of New Jersey, drinks beer with an archaeologist of ancient beverages, and makes stone tools like a caveman. By turns amusing and profound, Lives in Ruins and its wild cast of characters find new ways to consider what is worth salvaging from our past. Archaeologists are driven by the love of history and the race to secure its evidence ahead of floods and bombs, looters and thieves, and before the bulldozers move in. Why spend your life in ruins? To uncover our hidden stories before they disappear.

Marilyn Johnson is a former editor and writer for Life, Esquire, and Outside magazines. She is the author of The Dead Beat: Lost Souls, Lucky Stiffs, and the Perverse Pleasures of Obituaries, This Book Is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All, and Lives in Ruins: Archaeologists and the Seductive Lure of Human Rubble. Both The Dead Beat and This Book Is Overdue! received Washington Irving Book Awards. She lives in New York.

ent_guitar01 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Music @ the Library: An Evening of Acoustic Guitars with Ken Totushek Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jessica D'Avanza   401-247-1920 x312   jessicad@barringtonlibrary.org
   

Musician Ken Totushek has collected acoustic guitars for many years and studies the history behind each one. For this Barrington Public Library performance he will play from his guitar collection which includes an 1870 Martin, to early 1900s Weissenborn lap steel, a Gibson, to some of the best handbuilt jazz, crossover, and acoustic guitars of our day. Sharing stories and songs, Totushek will play each guitar based on the musical style of its era, along with cover songs and arrangements including some of his own original music. The range of his musical selections can go from Bossa Nova, and Blues, to Gypsy Jazz, fingerstyle, popular, Chet style, spiritual, Reggae, and classical---there is sure to be something for everyone!

Ken Totushek of Barrington is an internationally known singer/songwriter and acoustic instrumentalist, with six acclaimed CDs of inspirational work since 1994. He has been playing guitar since his teen years, and has performed in Japan, Europe, the Middle East, and throughout the U.S. In September of 2013 Ken was awarded Japan’s Kansai Music Conference “Building Bridges Through Music” Award. Ken's overarching musical theme has to do with hard but real stuff of life—those life experiences which mold and shape who we really are, or who we are to become. A message of unfettered hope in the midst of life’s pain and joys is always woven  throughout all of Ken’s music. He highly values life, his faith, his family, and his friends.  

This concert is free and open to all.

ent_microphone1 7:00 PM  -  8:15 PM Lecture: American Intervention Overseas--What is it Good For? Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jessica D'Avanza   401.247.1920 x312   jessicad@barringtonlibrary.org
   

East Bay Citizens for Peace and Barrington Public Library present Stephen Kinzer, an author, journalist, and academic to present a lecture titled: American Intervention Overseas--What is it Good For?

For generations, the U.S. was so powerful that it could impose its will on much of the world. It no longer can. Today, the U.S. has policies to fit a world that no longer exists, and no strategy for facing modern challenges. Our instinct is to intervene whenever there is trouble, but past interventions have caused more harm than good.

Stephen Kinzer is an award-winning foreign correspondent whose articles and books have led the Washington Post to place him "among the best in popular foreign policy storytelling." 

Kinzer spent more than 20 years working for the New York Times, most of it as a foreign correspondent. He was the Times bureau chief in Nicaragua during the 1980s, and in Germany during the early 1990s. In 1996 he was named chief of the newly opened Times bureau in Istanbul. Later he was appointed national culture correspondent, based in Chicago.

Since leaving the Times, Kinzer has taught journalism, political science, and international relations at Northwestern University and Boston University. He has written books about Central America, Rwanda, Turkey, and Iran, as well as others that trace the history of American foreign policy. He contributes to the New York Review of Books and writes a world affairs column for the Guardian and The Boston Globe, and is a visiting fellow at the Watson Institute for International Studies at Brown University.

Free and open to all.

    Contact: Jessica D'Avanza   401.247.1920 x312   jessicad@barringtonlibrary.org
   

Meeting of the Minds is a forum in which participants engage in considered, respectful exchange of ideas about both contemporary issues of the day drawn from events in the news, and also timeless philosophical questions debated through the ages, such as the nature of the self, what is wisdom, foundations of ethics/morality, and others. This series will have six sessions, meeting from 10 a.m. to noon on the following dates: September 22; October 6 & 20; November 10 and 24; and December 8.

The first hour of each meeting will discuss contemporary issues and the second will focus on a pre-set philosophical subject to be determined for each date and announced at the first meeting. No required reading, preparation, or expert knowledge about any topic is necessary; just bring your open mind and a willingness to listen to and entertain the ideas of others.

The series will be moderated by Ron Massa, who has been a past facilitator of the Great Decisions program at Barrington Public Library, and has moderated several Meeting of the Minds series at Warwick Public Library.

Free and open to adults of all ages. Register for this 6-week series online or call the Reference Desk at 401.247.1920 x2.

Between Land and Sea: The Atlantic Coast and the Transformation of New England
by Christopher Pastore
Published by Harvard University Press, 2014

One of the largest estuaries on the North Atlantic coast, Narragansett Bay served as a gateway for colonial expansion in the seventeenth century and the birthplace of American industrialization in the late eighteenth. Christopher Pastore presents an environmental history of this watery corner of the Atlantic world, beginning with the first European settlement in 1636 and ending with the dissolution of the Blackstone Canal Company in 1849. Between Land and Sea traces how the Bay’s complex ecology shaped the contours of European habitation, trade, and resource use, and how littoral settlers in turn reconfigured the physical and cultural boundaries between humans and nature.

Narragansett Bay emerges in Pastore’s account as much more than a geological formation. Rather, he reimagines the nexus of land and sea as a brackish borderland shaped by the tension between what English settlers saw as improvable land and the perpetual forces of the North Atlantic Ocean. By draining swamps, damming rivers, and digging canals, settlers transformed a marshy coastal margin into a clearly defined edge. The resultant “coastline” proved less resilient, less able to absorb the blows of human initiative and natural variation than the soggy fractal of water and earth it replaced.

Today, as sea levels rise and superstorms batter coasts with increasing ferocity, Between Land and Sea calls on the environmentally-minded to make a space in their notions of progress for impermanence and uncertainty in the natural world.

Christopher Pastore is Assistant Professor of History at the University at Albany, State University of New York. He holds an M.A. and Ph.D. in American History and M.S. in college teaching from the University of New Hampshire as well as a B.A. in Biology from Bowdoin College and M.F.A. in nonfiction Creative Writing from the New School for Social Research, where he has taught courses in the Writing Program for ten years. As a journalist, he has contributed articles on sailing or related topics to Boat International, Cruising World, Newport Life, Offshore, Restoration Quarterly, Real Simple, and Sailing World, where he worked as Associate Editor. He also served as Editor of American Sailor and Junior Sailor, the official publications of U.S. Sailing, the sport's national governing body. In 2005 (paperback 2013), he published a biography of Nathanael Herreshoff titled Temple to the Wind: The Story of America's Greatest Naval Architect and His Masterpiece, Reliance (Lyons Press, 2005).

Meeting of the Minds is a forum in which participants engage in considered, respectful exchange of ideas about both contemporary issues of the day drawn from events in the news, and also timeless philosophical questions debated through the ages, such as the nature of the self, what is wisdom, foundations of ethics/morality, and others. This series will have six sessions, meeting from 10 a.m. to noon on the following dates: September 22; October 8; November 10 and 24; and December 8.

The first hour of each meeting will discuss contemporary issues and the second will focus on a pre-set philosopical subject to be determined for each date and announced at the first meeting. No required reading, preparation, or expert knowledge about any topic is necessary; just bring your open mind and a willingness to listen to and entertain the ideas of others.

The series will be moderated by Ron Massa, who has been a past facilitator of the Great Decisions program at Barrington Public Library, and has moderated several Meeting of the Minds series at Warwick Public Library.

Free and open to adults of all ages. Register for this 6-week series online or call the Reference Desk at 401.247.1920 x2.
