    Contact: Rachel Sideman-Kurtz     rsideman@minlib.net
   

 

Manufactured Landscapes is a feature length documentary on the world and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky who makes large-scale photographs of 'manufactured landscapes' – quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines, dams. He photographs civilization's materials and debris, but in a way people describe as "stunning" or "beautiful," and so raises all kinds of questions about ethics and aesthetics without trying to easily answer them. The Armchair Travel Book Club presents this film after reading Visit Sunny Chernobyl by Andrew Blackwell in March. The author referenced the artist and this film. All are welcome.

 A Jewish Mother in Shangri-la by Rosie Rosenzeig

An old joke tells of a Jewish woman who treks to the Himalayas to seek an audience with a guru sitting in seclusion on a mountaintop. When at last she comes before him, she implores: "Sheldon, come home!" Rosie Rosenzweig became that Jewish mother-but in real life, the story has a different ending. Instead of asking her Buddhist son, Ben, to come home, Rosie accepts his invitation to find out about Buddhism firsthand. Together they visit retreat centers in Europe and Asia and meet leading meditation masters who are Ben's gurus: Vietnamese teacher Thich Nhat Hanh and Tibetan lamas Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and ChÖkyi Nyima Rinpoche. While struggling to come to terms with Ben's choice of a spiritual path so different from everything that she cherishes, Rosie finds that she is learning more about herself than she anticipated. The adventures of Rosie recounts take her from her Boston suburb to a Zen hermitage in France, an enclave of Tibetan Buddhists in Nepal, and finally to her own spiritual home in Jerusalem. Whether she is practicing mindfulness meditation, sharing a cup of tea with a Zen master, or worrying about bowing down to idols, Rosie is intent in her quest to find common ground between two ancient traditions, to deepen her understanding of her son, and to find a way to her own authentic experience of truth. Hers is a mission of peace that seeks to build a bridge of understanding between cultures and faiths while remaining true to her own Jewish identity.

NOTE:  This group usually meets the second Wednesday of each month, but has had a change of date and time for this month.

Round Ireland with a Fridge by Tony Hawks  

Have you ever made a drunken bet? Worse, still, have you ever tried to win one? In attempting to hitchhike round Ireland with a fridge, Tony Hawks did both, and his foolhardiness led him to one of the best experiences of his life. Joined by his trusty traveling companion-cum-domestic appliance, he found himself in the midst of a remarkable adventure, at times, emotional, at times inspirational, but more often than not, downright silly. Only in the magical land of Ireland could such a notion lead to such fruitful adventure.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Brilliant Beacons: A History of the American Lighthouse   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

In a work rich in maritime lore and brimming with original historical detail, Eric Jay Dolin, the best-selling author of Leviathan, will be at the library to talk about his latest book, "Brilliant Beacons: A History of the American Lighthouse," which has been called the most comprehensive history of American lighthouses ever written. It tells the story of America through the prism of its beloved coastal sentinels. Set against the backdrop of an expanding nation, the book  traces the evolution of America’s lighthouse system, highlighting the political, military, and technological battles fought to illuminate the nation’s hardscrabble coastlines. It features a memorable cast of characters including the penny-pinching Treasury official Stephen Pleasonton, who hamstrung the country’s efforts to adopt the revolutionary “Fresnel Lens,” and presents tales both humorous and harrowing of soldiers, saboteurs, ruthless egg collectors, and most importantly, the light-keepers themselves.

Dark Star Safari by Paul Theroux

Dark Star Safari is a rich and insightful book whose itinerary is Africa, from Cairo to Cape Town: down the Nile, through Sudan and Ethiopia, to Kenya, Uganda, and ultimately to the tip of South Africa. Going by train, dugout canoe, "chicken bus," and cattle truck, Theroux passes through some of the most beautiful -- and often life-threatening -- landscapes on earth. This is travel as discovery and also, in part, a sentimental journey. Almost forty years ago, Theroux first went to Africa as a teacher in the Malawi bush. Now he stops at his old school, sees former students, revisits his African friends. He finds astonishing, devastating changes wherever he goes.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM The Leveller - Jacqueline Dembar Greene   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Rachel Sideman-Kurtz     
   

 

When Jacqueline Dembar Greene discovered the legend of Tom Cook, the wily colonial figure haunted her until she gave him a voice.  Was he a thief or was he truly leveling off the fortunes of those who had more than they needed with those who never had enough?  Metrowest's own Robin Hood became the kernel for her middle grade historical novel, The Leveller set in 1789.   The author will tell us about this person and how she drew on rumor and history to create the book.   

Jaqueline Dembar Greene is a Wayland resident and author of 38 books for young readers including the award-winning American Girl Rebecca series.  Autographed books will be available following the presentation.   

This event is co-sponsored with The Wayland Historical Society

Badluck Way:  A Year on the Ragged Edge of the West by Bryce Andrews

In this gripping memoir of a young man, a wolf, their parallel lives and ultimate collision, Bryce Andrews describes life on the remote, windswept Sun Ranch in southwest Montana. The Sun’s twenty thousand acres of rangeland occupy a still-wild corner of southwest Montana—a high valley surrounded by mountain ranges and steep creeks with portentous names like Grizzly and Bad Luck. Just over the border from Yellowstone National Park, the Sun holds giant herds of cattle and elk amid many predators—bears, mountain lions, and wolves.

Phil Radoff: “VERDI’S "LA TRAVIATA": A GUIDED TOUR”

"La Traviata" is one of Verdi’s most successful operas and among the most popular in the operatic repertory.  Based on the Alexander Dumas (fils) novel, “The Lady of the Camellias,” the opera is the tragic story of a reformed courtesan, Violetta Valery, and her unhappy lover, Alfredo Germont. Phil Radoff will walk us through this masterpiece of Verdi’s Middle Period in advance of the Metropolitan Opera’s production in high definition at many theaters in Metrowest.

Phil Radoff is a retired lawyer with a lifelong interest in opera. He leads opera courses at the Brandeis Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (BOLLI) and the Lifelong Learners: An Independent Cooperative. This will be his fourth annual opera talk at the library.
