Writing to Heal: using blog, personal essay and memoir to make peace with the past

Have you ever wondered if you should write a memoir about your life? Or considered sharing some of your personal thoughts online through a blog or a personal reflection essay? Are you not sure where to start - or even if these would be good outlets for you? Are you concerned about how writing about your personal story will affect your friends and family? Do you find that writing about the past stirs up intense feelings, but you still want to write? How do you balance delving into the past with living well in the present? What audience do you want to reach, and how would you reach them?

In this four-part workshop for the non-professional writer, we will work together to discern how you can use your writing in a more targeted and effective way to achieve your goals. In order to do that, you will spend some time discerning what those goals are and how writing can help you reach them. We'll discuss various methods of publishing and how they accomplish your particular goals. You will receive a long list of resources on writing, creativity, healing, self-care, and publishing. You will leave the class with greater clarity about what you want to write, how (or if) you want to publish, your goals for your writing, and a plan to produce the writing you long to create.

Note: By registering you are signing up for all 4 sessions. If you choose not to continue, please let straina@mhl.org know.

    Contact: Kimberly Lynn   978-623-8401   klynn@mhl.org
   

Dr. Sandy Murray presents, "You Have Your DNA Matches - Now What?"  Utilizing DNA test results in our genealogy research is incredibly rewarding but initially can be very confusing. It requires good data organization along with record keeping for both the results and your contacts but it is well worth it. We will cover the basic biology and terminology used in analyzing the four types of DNA (Y-DNA, mtDNA, autosomal DNA and X DNA), compare the three major DNA-testing companies with respect to advantages, disadvantages and prices, and discuss “ethnicity/admixture” results that the companies advertise. We will compare match lists and the analytical tools available at each company (or not). We will then introduce working with chromosome browsers and matrix tools and how to transfer results to the free site, GEDmatch, so that results from different companies can be compared.

Dr. Sandy Murray presents Part II of "You Have Your DNA Matches - Now What?"  Utilizing DNA test results in our genealogy research is incredibly rewarding but initially can be very confusing. It requires good data organization along with record keeping for both the results and your contacts but it is well worth it. We will cover the basic biology and terminology used in analyzing the four types of DNA (Y-DNA, mtDNA, autosomal DNA and X DNA), compare the three major DNA-testing companies with respect to advantages, disadvantages and prices, and discuss “ethnicity/admixture” results that the companies advertise. We will compare match lists and the analytical tools available at each company (or not). We will then introduce working with chromosome browsers and matrix tools and how to transfer results to the free site, GEDmatch, so that results from different companies can be compared.  Sponsored by the Friends of Memorial Hall Library

    Contact: Reference   978-623-8401, x31   rdesk@mhl.org
   

The Keys to Focus, Organization, and Performance from Preschool through College
Presented by Adam J. Cox, Ph.D.

The education of youth must transcend traditional notions of intelligence. Harnessing the power of executive functions is the best way to active a person’s full capability, as it pertains to both academic and social development. Building executive functions is part of a child-centered approach to education, emphasizing the benefits of dynamic brain development and the power of learned behavior. Many have said that it is the single most important concept in child development today – the fulcrum on which success tilts.

This presentation will address the eight pillars of executive function (Initiation, Attention, Flexibility, Working Memory, Organization, Planning, Self-monitoring, Emotional Control), as described in Dr. Cox's book, No Mind Left Behind. Cox will discuss in detail how to help youth navigate important developmental hurdles, both academic and social, that are caused by aspects of executive dysfunction.

Dr. Cox will focus describe the elements of an ecology of attention – and how schools and families can integrate these elements into a positive, effective approach to coaching young learners.

Cox's ideas have been incorporated by families and schools worldwide. No Mind Left Behind is translated into multiple languages, and was the first trade book on executive functions published in North America. His practical advice emphasizes immediate, measurable steps for improving academic achievement. Each of his pillars of executive function is amply illustrated with “real life” examples, and many academic coaching strategies. Please do not miss this unique opportunity to learn how to build the capability of the important young people in your life.

This month's Night Readers selection will be Pax by Sara Pennypacker.  "Pax was only a kit when his family was killed, and “his boy” Peter rescued him from abandonment and certain death. Now the war front approaches, and when Peter’s father enlists, Peter has to move in with his grandpa. Far worse than being forced to leave home is the fact that Pax can’t go. Peter listens to his stern father—as he usually does—and throws Pax’s favorite toy soldier into the woods. When the fox runs to retrieve it, Peter and his dad get back in the car and leave him there—alone. But before Peter makes it through even one night under his grandfather’s roof, regret and duty spur him to action; he packs for a trek to get his best friend back and sneaks into the night."

Ted Reinstein returns to MHL to discuss his new book, Wicked Pissed: New England's Most Famous Feuds. New England is as dotted with colorful and fascinating feuds as it is with low stone walls and big, red barns. And many of them go back just as far! For instance, did you know that the Breeds and the Bunkers are still fighting over a hill? Or that the revolution is still being fought—by Lexington and Concord?! From the colonial era, through early aviation (CT claims the Wright Bros. are wrong), to Red Sox-Yankees and present-day food fights, Ted Reinstein tells us who’s really “Wicked Pissed” in New England, and why. Copies of the book will be available for sale.

Topics of mental health, addiction, family dynamics in times of crisis and post crisis, healing at home, developing coping skills and healthy activities will be discussed. Guest speakers will be invited to talk about hoarding, major mental illness, substance abuse and addiction, the use of Narcan, accessing services, and the availability of services throughout the state.

In addition, creating small circle conversations to discuss and try activities that focus on movement and mindfulness will allow families to try new things and walk a path that is in support of coping with difficult moments.
