misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM An Evening with Author Peter Grinspoon, M.D. Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference   978-623-8401, x31   rdesk@mhl.org
   

By any measure, Dr. Peter Grinspoon was a success: a Harvard-educated M.D. with a thriving practice; two great kids and an accomplished wife; a pillar of his community. However, beneath that picture-perfect façade, he was an addict secretly consuming dangerous amounts of prescription medication every day. And when two detectives showed up at his office after a suspicious pharmacist busted him for filling a prescription in the name of his eighteen-year-old nanny, the façade crumbled.    

Having lied his way to success for years, despite his addiction, he believed he could manage his way out of this mess by fiat. Instead, he wound up in rehab with an unlikely mix of medical professionals and OxyContin and heroin addicts. His ego and the disease of addiction kept him see-sawing precariously between relapse and recovery—with his family and career in freefall—until he finally truly hit bottom. Free Refills is the harrowing, moving, and darkly funny story of how Grinspoon finally overcame his addiction to live honestly (and cleanly), became a much more compassionate doctor, and even came to counsel other physicians struggling with addiction. 

About The Author: Peter Grinspoon, M.D. currently practices as a primary care physician at an inner city clinic in Boston and is on staff at Mass General Hospital. He teaches medicine at Harvard Medical School, and today he is proudly nine years clean.

His book will be available for purchase, courtesy of the Andover Bookstore.

The Athlete in Art through the Ages: From Myron's Discobolus to Eakins's Rowers 

In ancient Greek civilization, Olympians embodied the ideals of physical strength and moral virtue, and therefore served as the perfect subject for sculptors to capture, both in marble and in bronze. This lecture will explore artists' fascination with the subject of sport from antiquity up to the present day, focusing on key examples in American art, including Thomas Eakins's rowing and boxing series and Eadweard Muybridge's photographic studies of the body in motion. 

Kelley Tialiou is the Charles H. Sawyer Curatorial Assistant | Librarian | Archivist at the Addison Gallery of American Art.

World Champion rower, US Paralympic coach, and Lawrence native, Ellen Minzner, will share her experience breaking through to the elite level of the sport, and about her current role coaching athletes with disabilities to the Paralympics in Rio in September 2016.  Her passion for rowing developed during her sophomore year in college at Villanova University, and after graduation, she went on to win the 1995 world championships in lightweight pair (two female rowers) in Tampere, Finland, and took another gold medal at the 1996 worlds in Scotland. She helped start a rowing program in Lawrence that began with just six kids, and has grown to over 80 youth from the Merrimack Valley. She served as the executive director of the Greater Lawrence Community Boating Program, and founder of both the Greater Lawrence Rowing Club and the Lawrence Celebration Regatta. She is currently the outreach director for Community Rowing Boston (CRI), a non-profit organization with a mission of "Rowing for All."  As the director of the Row Boston, Adaptive Rowing, and Veterans Rowing programs there, Ellen facilitates program development and support for long-term growth and sustainability. Her goal is to provide the highest-level experience to people without traditional access to the water.  And of course, to win in Rio.

With the Olympic Season upon us, it's a great time to review the Olympics of 1936, and explore how Hitler used those games as a public relations attempt to spread  propaganda and hide the truth about his Third Reich. Local historian Don Robb will explore:

  • Why Germany was ripe for Hitler to take power in the 1930s;
  • How his Nazi Party grew from an insignificant gang of malcontents into the most powerful political party in Germany;
  • What the Nazi regime meant to the German people;
  • How Hitler planned to use the Berlin Olympics to demonstrate the superiority of Germany and the German race;
  • How some Hungarian Jews, an African-American, and some rowers from the  University of Washington tarnished the image of Hitler and his theory of Aryan superiority.

Harnisch takes readers back to 1897, when Sara Thibault has returned to France following the devastating end to her relationship with Philippe Lemieux, the vintner with whom she fell in love in California.Reunited and soon to be wed, Sara and Philippe struggle to manage two vineyards, his much-esteemed Eagle’s Run in Napa Valley and her humble family vineyard, St. Martin, in the Loire Valley. Philippe, used to making his own decisions, doesn’t always include Sara, and she, fully aware of her talents as a vintner, challenges his omissions head-on at home and in the streets with other Suffragettes. Troubles abound: the specter of Prohibition threatens their livelihood as do rival vintners, and ghosts from Philippe’s past might unravel the family he has just begun to build. As tensions mount, Sara welcomes the proximity of her dear friend Marie, a midwife who is the first woman selected to study surgery at Cooper Medical College in San Francisco. From managing a new marriage to managing new businesses, from the Paris World’s Fair in 1900 to a small vineyard in France, from the rough streets of San Francisco to its newest college, Sara and her family charge into the 20th century—and readers will readily follow, rooting for them through every page. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.

Kristen Harnisch drew upon her extensive research and her experiences living in San Francisco and visiting the Loire Valley and Paris to create the stories for her novels. Ms. Harnisch has a degree in economics from Villanova University and currently resides in Connecticut with her husband and three children.

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.

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.

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

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
