misc_handicap 3:00 PM  -  4:30 PM Middlesex Fells: the People's Forest Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Doug Heath   781-224-0280   simcoxheath@msn.com
   

Join us as we welcome Alison C. Simcox and Douglas L. Heath, authors of Middlesex Fells, the newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series. Telling a story in pictures, the book boasts 217 vintage images, many of which have never been published, and showcases memories of days gone by.

Comprising over 2,500 acres of forest, wetlands, and rugged hills, Middlesex Fells, just seven miles north of Boston, is one of the nation’s first state parks and contains the world’s first public land trust, Virginia Wood. For centuries, the Fells provided rich hunting and fishing grounds for Native Americans. In 1632, Gov. John Winthrop and others explored the area and named the largest pond Spot Pond because of the many islands and rocks protruding through the ice. The Fells was used for farming and timber, and Spot Pond Brook became the focus of industrial activity, which culminated in 1858 with the Hayward Rubber Mills. In the 1880s and 1890s, Middlesex Fells was a key property in the Boston metropolitan park movement driven by conservationists Wilson Flagg, Elizur Wright, Frederick Law Olmsted, Charles Eliot, George Davenport, and Sylvester Baxter. In 1894, the Metropolitan Park Commission began acquiring Fells land. Electric trolleys crossed the Fells from 1910 to 1946, and in 1959, with the car culture in control, Interstate 93 was built through the area. Today, the Fells, as envisioned by its founders, is a forested haven for city dwellers.

Alison C. Simcox and Douglas L. Heath are environmental scientists with an interest in local history. For this book, they traced the history of the Fells using images selected from private collections and public archives.  Their previous books include Lake Quannapowitt and Breakheart Reservation.  Signed copies of all three books will be available for purchase after tonight's program.

Light refreshments will be served, and all are welcome to attend this free event.

    Contact: Heidi Downing   617-623-5000 x2920   hdowning@minlib.net
   

Join us for Somerville Reads Movie Night!  We're showing the award winning movie Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, directed by Alfonso Cuarón.

Dr. Ryan Stone is a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky. On a seemingly routine spacewalk, the shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left, and the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

This film is rated PG-13.  It is free and all are welcome to attend.  Light refreshments will be served.

    Contact: Marita Coombs   617-623-5000 x2942   mcoombs@minlib.net
   

Join us for an evening with author Steve Almond, who will discuss his recent book Against Football

With American Football becoming an increasingly popular sport in the UK, concerns are also being raised about the health impact the sport can have on players.  The scary facts about American football causing brain injury have become a hot topic in the media, especially as the same worries are surfacing for other full contact sports such as rugby.  Steve Almond was a keen American football fan, but, in light of recent scientific studies about the prevalence of injuries within the sport has slowly turned against the game.

This event is free and all are welcome.

Copies of the book will be available to purchase.

    Location: Central Library, 79 Highland Avenue
 
misc_handicap 7:00 PM  -  8:15 PM Melissa McCue-McGrath, author of Considerations for the City Dog Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Marylin Eastwood   617-623-5000 x2971   meastwood@minlib.net
   

Melissa McCue-McGrath CPDT-KA, wrote Considerations for the City Dog in response to a dog nearly killing a 6’4 man and his German shepherd in her city. After that terrible incident, and a decade of working with frustrated dogs in urban centers, she spoke with professionals in related dog industries.  She consulted with veterinarians, rescue volunteers, behavior specialists, certified dog trainers, dog daycare providers, groomers and more to identify why urban dogs are failing, and what we need to do to help these dogs succeed.

The same issues — and solutions — came up again and again across the board.

This book explains how to find the right dog for a city environment; identifies how to find a good care taker for your pet; defines “behaviorist”; explains how to get exercise for an athletic dog in a city of leash-laws; and pontificates on why the phrase, “But, he’s friendly” is so frustrating to dog specialists. Most importantly, this book lays out how exactly to find reputable help for any possible issue, and holds your hand if things are not working as hoped.

This is not a dog training book – there are thousands on the market already. Instead, this book will supplement any science-based training regimen. It gives insight as to why dogs do what they do, but perhaps more importantly, it explains why people do what they do and why we must do better for the sake of our urban dogs. We all need to do better – our urban dogs are in the balance.

 Melissa McCue-McGrath, CPDT-KA is a certified professional dog trainer in greater Boston.  She has twelve years of professional dog training under her belt. She currently teaches disc dog classes, basic manners, and tricks classes in addition to private consultations where she evaluates dogs who are having a difficult time living in urban areas.

As the world fends for itself, its inhabitants must save humanity from a far greater force that threatens to destroy it.

Join us for a discussion of our 2015 Somerville Reads book, The Martian* by Andy Weir.

The Martian is a ridiculously entertaining sci-fi novel, set in the near future when manned missions to Mars have begun.  Astronaut Mark Watney is marooned on Mars when his crew mates mistakenly believe that he has been killed during a hurried emergency departure from the planet.  What follows has been compared to MacGyver on Mars as Watney devises ingenious ways to survive.  The action shifts between Watney, the efforts of NASA to mount a rescue (once they realize that Watney is still alive), and Watney's fellow astronauts who are on their way back to Earth.  It’s a thrilling and often funny book.

Copies of the book are available for check out at all Somerville Public Library locations.

Somerville Reads is a project that promotes literacy and community engagement by encouraging people all over the City to read and discuss the same book.

*Disclaimer: Please note that this book contains language that may not be suitable for younger readers.

Join us for a free meditation workshop with Dr. Alan Post.

Inside us is an energy that can make us whole, physically, mentally, and spiritually. By learning to meditate accurately, we tap into this energy and heal our physical illnesses, emotional stress, and spiritual isolation--from within.

We seek peace and understanding in our busy lives. For many, there is a deep sense of yearning for greater satisfaction, fulfillment, and enjoyment. You may have heard about meditation, and that it can be helpful for physical health, stress reduction, and peace of mind. It has helped many find purpose in their lives, access creativity, and improve performance. Perhaps you've heard that meditation has aided others in times pain, anxiety, and confusion. This lively and practical workshop is designed to give an introduction into the multi-faceted aspects of meditation.  Dr. Post, contributing author to Meditation as Medication for the Soul, will clarify the many benefits of accurate meditation and will provide every participant a personal, instructed demonstration of meditation.

This workshop is free and all are welcome!

misc_handicap 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM An Evening with Barbara Mancini Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Marie Manis   617-379-0033 x3   mmanis@compassionandchoices.org
   

Barbara Mancini’s story is of a healthcare system that fails Americans at the end of life, a healthcare system that Compassion and Choices is fighting to change every day through policy, legal and legislative advocacy.  

Dying of diabetes, kidney failure, and heart problems, Barbara’s father, Joe Yourshaw, went into hospice where he planned to die peacefully. He had done everything right: completed his advance directive, signed a do-not-resuscitate order and designated his daughter, Barbara Mancini –herself a registered nurse – his healthcare proxy. He was ready to die – at home.

Instead, his daughter Barbara endured a yearlong nightmare of legal persecution for having simply handed her suffering father his prescribed morphine, which he took.

After being revived against his wishes, Joe spent his final days in a hospital, prevented from seeing his daughter while still conscious and knowing she was facing jail time for caring for him.

With Compassion and Choices’ help, Barbara Mancini got the unjust charge of “assisted suicide” dismissed. Now, Barbara is helping Compassion & Choices make sure what happened to her and her dad does not happen to other daughters and fathers.

With advocates like Barbara, Compassion & Choices is making aid in dying a legitimate, accessible medical practice.

These handmade tokens of affection were made of paper and decorated with flowers, ribbon, doilies, glitter, lace, and other materials.  Workshop leader Rita Parisi will provide the traditional materials as well as instruction so that every participant can make their own Victorian style valentine.

This event is free and all are welcome.  It is limited to 25 participants on a first-come, first-served basis.  This program is recommended for adults, teens, and children age 5 and older.

Many thanks to the Friends of the Library for funding this event!
