misc_none 4:00 PM  -  5:00 PM My Week at Guantanamo's War Court, Charles Church, Esq, Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Human rights lawyer Charles Church visited Guantanamo last June to observe and report on the pretrial proceedings in the capital prosecution by military commission of the "high value detainee" Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri.  al-Nashiri allegedly captained bin Laden's "boats operation," which lethally struck the USS Cole in Aden Harbor and attacked other ships.  He was captured by the CIA in 2002 and held at black sites, where he was interrogated and tortured.  In 2006, the CIA transferred al-Nashiri to Guantanamo.

Church provides a first-hand account of the commission proceedings, and describes the major players in the case.  He also evaluates the kind of justice that our military commissions dispense in our behalf.  Church came away very disappointed in the military tribunal process. He summed up his War court experience up this way: “I carried with me to Gitmo a deep skepticism about the war courts, and departed even more troubled.  Truly, as the lead defense counsel for al-Nashiri kept telling the judge, ‘We're making it up as we go' ".

Charles Church is a human rights lawyer residing in Salisbury who focuses on detention, torture, Guantanamo and related topics.  He recently published an e-book titled: My Week at Guantanamo's War Court, which is available at Amazon's Kindle Store.  According to Professor Mark Denbeaux, counsel to Guantanamo detainees "Few people understand how dangerous the Military Commission proceedings in Guantanamo are to the rule of law as we know it.  Charles Church has raised the alarm in a clear and compelling way that is a service to all." Church also is a regular columnist for "The Lakeville Journal", writing on such subjects under the rubric "Fields Notes from a Battleground."

 

 

 

 
misc_none 4:00 PM  -  5:00 PM Saturday Book Club, Benediction by Kent Haruf Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

 In Holt, the fictional Colorado town where all of Haruf’s novels are set, longtime resident Dad Lewis is dying of cancer. Happily married, Dad spends his last weeks thinking over his life, particularly an incident that ended badly with a clerk in his store, and his relationship with his estranged son. As his wife and daughter care for him, life goes on all around him:  Dad, his family and neighbors try, in small, believable ways, to make peace with those they live among, to understand a world that isn’t the one in which they came of age. Separately and together, all the characters are trying to live—and in Dad’s case, to die—with dignity; a struggle Haruf renders with delicacy and skill. Led by Germaine DePaolo.

misc_none 4:00 PM  -  5:00 PM The Heathen School: A Story of Hope and Betrayal in the Age of the Early Republic with Author Jonath Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Special presentation in collaboration with Oblong Books and the Salisbury Association Historical Society.

 

At the beginning of the 19th century, an ambitious group of American pastors envisioned a school that would educate heathen youth in the teachings of Protestantism. Upon finishing their education, such scholars, as they were called, would make ideal missionaries to their home countries. Located in Cornwall, Conn., the Foreign Mission School was initially considered a major success, drawing students and sponsors from all over the world. But what began as an international effort ended as a local scandal when two Cherokee students fell in love with girls from the town.

John Demos is the Samuel Knight Professor Emeritus of History at Yale University. His previous books include The Unredeemed Captive, which won the Francis Parkman Prize and was a finalist for the National Book Award, and Entertaining Satan, which won the Bancroft Prize. He lives in Tyringham, MA.
