Consumer Protection

 

With the holidays just around the corner it’s not just the holiday season but the shopping season as well. It is also a great time of year to learn what your rights are as a shopper. The New Bedford Local Consumer Program joins us to discuss what you can do to protect yourself as a consumer.

The New Bedford Local Consumer Program (LCP) operates out of the City's Department of Community Services. It is funded by and works in cooperation with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Office of the Attorney General. The LCP provides free information and mediation to local area consumers from many surrounding communities like Seekonk. Much of their presentation will be centered on holiday shopping topics such as gift cards, gift certificates, and money cards, as well as general retail shopper rights. 

Be an informed shopper this holiday season!

Zentangle Sun

 

Zentangle® is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. Through its meditative qualities, it increases focus and creativity and provides an increased sense of peace and personal well-being.  In the first hour of the Sun Image Zentangle® class, participants learn seven "tangles" which are easy-to-learn step-by-step drawings consisting of either a line, dot or circle which are then combined to create abstract patterns. Drawing the tangles stroke-by-stroke creates a focus which in turn creates a relaxing and meditative state. In the second hour, participants apply the tangles to a unique line drawing of a sun image which they create together step-by-step and can then take home and color. The Sun Image class is taught by Certified Zentangle® Teacher Cindy O'Brien.

Cindy O'Brien, a North Attleboro resident, is the founder and president of the former Village Artisans Collaborative of downtown North Attleboro, MA, owner of the former Artiste Gallery of downtown Mansfield, MA and current owner of Artiste Art and Craft Studio which offers Zentangle® classes, Adult and Children Art and Craft Classes and sponsored Art Events. As a practicing artist for over thirty years, including gallery shows in Provincetown and Newbury Street, Boston, O'Brien's goal as a teacher is to get people excited about art and just have fun!

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Seekonk Public Library and offered FREE to the public. All materials are provided. Space is limited; registration with a valid SAILS library card is required.

Food of a Younger Land

Join us for a lively discussion of the next book in our narrative non-fiction book group: The Food of a Young Land by Mark Kurlansky. 

In the throes of the Great Depression, a make-work initiative for authors-called 'America Eats'-was created by the WPA to chronicle the eating habits, traditions, and struggles of local Americans. Mark Kurlansky, author of Salt and Cod, unearths this forgotten literary treasure, chronicling a bygone era when Americans had never heard of fast food or grocery superstores. Kurlansky brings together the WPA contributions-featuring New York automats and Georgia Coca-Cola parties, Maine lobsters and Montana beaver tails-and brilliantly showcases them with authentic recipes, anecdotes, and photographs.” -Amazon

Moby-Duck

Join us for a lively discussion of the next book in our narrative non-fiction book group: Moby-Duck by Donovan Hohn. 

When the writer Donovan Hohn heard of the mysterious loss of thousands of bath toys at sea, he figured he would interview a few oceanographers, talk to a few beachcombers, and read up on Arctic science and geography. But questions can be like ocean currents: wade in too far, and they carry you away. Hohn's accidental odyssey pulls him into the secretive arena of shipping conglomerates, the daring work of Arctic researchers, the lunatic risks of maverick sailors, and the shadowy world of Chinese toy factories. Moby-Duck is a journey into the heart of the sea and an adventure through science, myth, the global economy, and some of the worst weather imaginable.” -Amazon

Dead Wake

Join us for a lively discussion of the next book in our narrative non-fiction book group: Dead Wake by Erik Larson. 

Critically acclaimed 'master of narrative nonfiction' Erik Larson has produced a thrilling account of the principals and the times surrounding this tumultuous event in world history...After an intimate look at the passengers, and soon-to-be victims, who board in New York despite the warning of 'unrestricted warfare' from the German embassy, Larson turns up the pace with shorter and shorter chapters alternating between the hunted and the hunter until the actual shot. All in all a significant story. Well told.” -Florida Times-Union

Let's Pretend This Never Happened

Join us for a lively discussion of the next book in our narrative non-fiction book group: Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson. 

In the irreverent Let’s Pretend This Never Happened, Lawson’s long-suffering husband and sweet daughter help her uncover the surprising discovery that the most terribly human moments—the ones we want to pretend never happened—are the very same moments that make us the people we are today. For every intellectual misfit who thought they were the only ones to think the things that Lawson dares to say out loud, this is a poignant and hysterical look at the dark, disturbing, yet wonderful moments of our lives. ” -Amazon

Don't Let's Go To The Dogs Tonight

Join us for a lively discussion of the next book in our narrative non-fiction book group: Don't Let's Go To The Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller. 

In Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight, Alexandra Fuller remembers her African childhood with visceral authenticity. Though it is a diary of an unruly life in an often inhospitable place, it is suffused with Fuller’s endearing ability to find laughter, even when there is little to celebrate. Fuller’s debut is unsentimental and unflinching but always captivating. In wry and sometimes hilarious prose, she stares down disaster and looks back with rage and love at the life of an extraordinary family in an extraordinary time.” -Amazon

Going Clear

Join us for a lively discussion of the next book in our narrative non-fiction book group: Going Clear by Lawrence Wright. 

Scientology presents itself as a scientific approach to spiritual enlightenment, but its practices have long been shrouded in mystery. Now Lawrence Wright—armed with his investigative talents, years of archival research, and more than two hundred personal interviews with current and former Scientologists—uncovers the inner workings of the church. We meet founder L. Ron Hubbard, the highly imaginative but mentally troubled science-fiction writer, and his tough, driven successor, David Miscavige. We go inside their specialized cosmology and language. We learn about the church’s legal attacks on the IRS, its vindictive treatment of critics, and its phenomenal wealth. We see the church court celebrities such as Tom Cruise while consigning its clergy to hard labor under billion-year contracts. Through it all, Wright asks what fundamentally comprises a religion, and if Scientology in fact merits this Constitutionally-protected label. Brilliantly researched, compellingly written, Going Clear pulls back the curtain on one of the most secretive organizations at work today.” -Amazon

Wesley the Owl

Join us for a lively discussion of the next book in our narrative non-fiction book group: Wesley the Owl by Stacey O'Brien. 

'Stacey O'Brien tells the intriguing story of how her life was changed and rearranged when she attempted to tame and raise Wesley -- a barn owl. She shows us how she was ultimately repaid with his love and devotion, and given glimpses into the mind of an animal that has an unexpected ability to understand human language and to communicate. Fascinating!" -- Stanley Coren, psychologist and author of How Dogs Think and Why Does My Dog Act That Way?
