Fall Series: Survival Stories
The human capacity for survival is amazing.  Much literature is devoted to survival stories…men, women and even children beating the odds to make it through impossible situations against improbable odds.  Sometimes people act with nobility, sometimes they do not.  This fall we explore several tales of survival, both fiction and non-fiction.

Tonight's selection: Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
Rich in historical detail, this is a compelling story of intrigue and survival. In exchange for a temporary stay of execution a young female spy captured in Nazi-occupied France writes a confession of her activities in the Resistance.

    Contact: Beth Safford   978-686-4080, ext 12   mmeill@mvlc.org
   

Join Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord for a talk about art and creativity. Susan believes that everyone is creative and that exercising our creativity makes us happer and more fully human. In this illustrated talk she shares her 35 year history in the arts (calligraphy, book-making, digital compositions) and the hard-won truths she has learned: the importance of patience, the development of the critical eye, making peace with the desire for perfection, and the idea that an artist's best teacher is the work itself. Her goal is to put the audience in touch with their own creative experiences whether they be art, crafts, music, writing, cooking, gardening, fashion, or home decorating.

Tonight's selection: Lord of the Flies by William Golding
The classic novel of survival on a desert island.  If you read this in school, read it again for a different perspective; this story of a group of boys who must choose humanity or living as animals is as relevant today as it was when published in 1954.

Spring Series: Africa -- Colonialism & Beyond
The history of Africa has been overshadowed over the last 200 years by the European colonization that dominated all parts of the continent.  This is a huge story, and one that is often not very well understood by Americans.  We take a very brief look at the experience of Africa from the perspective of colonialism and its effect on blacks and whites.  

Toight's selection:  King Leopold’s Ghost  by Adam Hochschild
This selection provides a vivid account of an episode in the modern history of Africa that was the epitome of tragedy; the looting of the Congo and the destruction of its peoples by King Leopold of the Belgians.  The story is told through a succession of biographical sketches of the principal villains and heroes.

Toight's selection:  The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver      
In 1959 an American missionary and his family move to the Belgian Congo. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is an epic of one family's tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

Toight's selection:  ~~Things Fall Apart by Chinue Achebe
 One of Achebe's many achievements in this acclaimed novel is his unsentimental rendering of Nigerian tribal life before and after the coming of colonialism. Achebe sketches a world in which violence, war, and suffering exist, but are balanced by a strong sense of tradition, ritual, and social coherence.

Toight's selection: Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight  by Alexandra Fuller
This is an intensely moving journey through a white African girl's childhood. Fuller was brought up in Africa during the Rhodesian civil war (1971-1979), a world where children over five learned how to load a rifle, clean all the guns in the house, and shoot-to-kill.  The narrative focuses on the wartime relationships between blacks and whites through a child's watchful eyes.

Tonight's Selection:  The Snow Queen by Michael Cunningham
This elegant and haunting new novel also examines the relationships among siblings and in-laws.  In this story, Barrett Meeks is a poetically-minded man in his late thirties who has just been dumped by his boyfriend via text message.  He moves in to share a Brooklyn apartment with his older brother, Tyler and Tyler’s wife, Beth.
