In 2009, Paul and Jessica Schendel went to Uganda to volunteer with a grassroots community organization.

They will talk about their collaboration with local leaders in making this vision become a reality.

At the Tomb of the Inflatable Pig: Travels Through Paraguay by John Gimlette (2003)
This is a humorous account of the author's travels across Paraguay.  Rarely visited by tourists and barely touched by global village sprawl, Paraguay remains a mystery to outsiders. This book is equal parts travelogue, history, and unorthodox travel guide and illuminates a little-understood place and its people.

As part of our "Wayland Reads" programming, Giulietta Nardone will conduct a Personal Essay Writing workshop on March 9, 16, and 23 from 7 to 8:30 pm. The program will complement the Wayland Reads 2015 title, "The Opposite of Loneliness."

This workshop program is inspired by the wise and soul-touching words of Marina who said, "Yale is full of tiny circles we pull around ourselves." This program is one of those tiny circles that will invigorate and inspire the whole as we explore the shared human condition. During the three-week program, participants will discuss essays from "The Opposite of Loneliness" as well as selected others. Then they will jump right in and start writing essays of their own. Almost everyone can write prose that is heartfelt, insightful, and universal. Seats are limited, so registration through our event calendar will be required. Registration will be opened in February, and the registration form will be found below this event listing.

Wayland native Giulietta "Julie" Nardone has been offering creative writing programs to adults and teens since 2009. Her stories and essays have been published in Chicken Soup for The Soul, Boston Globe, Christian Science Monitor, Skirt! Magazine, MetroWest Daily News, Let Go: The Art of Spiritual Surrender, Common Ties, Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, Flashquake and broadcast on NPR.

Registration is limited to 15. Please register on event listing for March 9.

Wayland resident and historian, David Hackett Fischer, will present a talk on famous Wayland residents.

Wayland people have had a long reach. They have drawn on their experience of life in this small town , to make large contributions in the world. A familiar example is Lydia Maria Child, now recognized by historians as a major figure in the Antislavery movement, and in campaigns for the rights of women, as well as in journalism, literature and publishing. Another is Archibald Cox. Many still remember his life and service in the town, and his achievements in law, politics, academe, and the national crisis of Watergate. Not so well known is Robert Patterson, a landscape designer and architect who invented new building styles in the mid- twentieth century. Thanks in large part to a new study by Will Thorndike, Patterson is beginning to be discussed as a major figure in American architecture. Dr. Fischer's talk will center on these Wayland people, and others of more recent generations.

Dr. Fischer is University Professor and Earl Warren Professor of History at Brandeis University. The recipient of many prizes and awards for his teaching and writing, he is the author of numerous books, including "Washington's Crossing," which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in history.

Long Way Round: Chasing Shadows Across the World by Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman (2004)
Ewan McGregor - actor and self-confessed bike nut - noticed that it was possible to ride all the way round the world, with just one short hop across the Bering Strait from Russia to Alaska. So he picked up the phone and called Charley Boorman, his best friend, fellow actor and bike enthusiast.  Riding 20,000 miles across increasingly tough terrain, Ewan and Charley chased their shadows through Europe, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Russia, across the Pacific to Alaska, then down through Canada and America. As they travelled, they documented their trip, taking photographs, and writing diaries by the campfire.

Called Again: A Story of Love and Triumph by Jennifer Pharr Davis (2013)
In 2011, Jennifer Pharr Davis became the overall record holder on the Appalachian Trail. By hiking 2,181 miles in 46 days - an average of 47 miles per day - she became the first female to ever set that mark. But this is not a book about records or numbers; this is a book about endurance and faith, and most of all love.  This is Jennifer's story, in her own words, about how she started this journey with a love for hiking and more significantly a love for her husband. Together, they were able to overcome rugged mountains and raging rivers, sleet storms and 100 degree heat, shin-splints and illnesses. They made new friends and tested old friendships; they shared together laughter and tears.  But, through it all, they fell more in love with one another and with the wilderness.

Carrie Russell, author of the novel "Drowning Cactus," will speak about environmentalism and fiction at the library today.

"Drowning Cactus" is literary fiction that explores the transformative power of wilderness. The novel follows a cactus thief and an urban gardening instructor on a journey across the American landscape, from the Sonoran Desert to Walden Pond.

Russell, a 1996 graduate of Wayland High School, studied writing at Columbia and Oxford, and worked as an environmental advocate before she became a novelist. The novel is inspired by her experiences in some of America’s most remote and threatened wilderness areas.

Russell will be available to sign books and answer reader questions after the talk.
