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.

We all love food.  As a society, we devour countless cooking shows, culinary magazines and foodie blogs. So how could we possibly be throwing nearly 50% of it in the trash?  Filmmakers and food lovers Jen and Grant dive into the issue of waste from farm, through retail, all the way to the back of their own fridge. After catching a glimpse of the billions of dollars of good food that is tossed each year in North America, they pledge to quit grocery shopping cold turkey and survive only on foods that would otherwise be thrown away. Just Eat It looks at our systemic obsession with expiry dates, perfect produce and portion sizes, and reveals the core of this seemingly insignificant issue that is having devastating consequences around the globe. Just Eat It brings farmers, retailers, inspiring organizations, and consumers to the table in a cinematic story that is equal parts education and delicious entertainment.  75 minutes.  Discussion to follow.  

This event is co-sponsored with Transition Wayland.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM Grow Your Organization Without Destroying Greatness   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Dr. Laurence J. Stybel  argues that scaling an organization or company is about managing the dilemma between keeping the values that made the organization great while adding business discipline.  Most organizations do a terrible job managing this dilemma and even have the wrong conceptual framework to make business growth sustainable. This is an entertaining mixture of lecture, exercise, and watching great television commercials. This program will be of interest to for profit and non profit leaders wishing to grow their businesses or organizations and private equity partners looking at investments. 

Wayland resident Larry Stybel and his wife Maryanne Peaboty are Wayland residents of many years and co-founders of Stybel Peabody, for which Stybel is CEO. Clients include 21% of the one hundred companies named “Best Employers in the United States” by FORTUNE MAGAZINE, two of the Big Four CPA firms, and top tier private equity firms. Stybel also works with family dominated companies on leadership transition issues. He is a monthly contributor in Psychology Today on leadership issues. Stybel and Peabody are the co-authors of "Navigating the Waterfall: Your Career Management and Job Search Guide."
Dr. Stybel received his doctorate from Harvard University and is a licensed psychologist in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

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.

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.

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

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.

This is the inspiring story of an ordinary American family that embarks on an extraordinary journey. Wide-Open World follows the Marshall family as they volunteer their way around the globe, living in a monkey sanctuary in Costa Rica, teaching English in rural Thailand, and caring for orphans in India. There’s a name for this kind of endeavor—voluntourism—and it might just be the future of travel.

 Naked At Lunch:  A Reluctant Nudist's Adventures in the Clothing-Optional World by Mark Haskell Smith

People have been getting naked in public for reasons other than sex for centuries. But as novelist and narrative journalist Mark Haskell Smith shows being a nudist is more complicated than simply dropping trou.  Naked at Lunch is equal parts cultural history and gonzo participatory journalism. Coated in multiple layers of high SPF sunblock, Haskell Smith dives into the nudist world today.

 A Mountain of Crumbs:  A Memoir by Elena Gorokhova

Elena Gorokhova's "A Mountain of Crumbs "is the moving story of a Soviet girl who discovers the truths adults are hiding from her and the lies her homeland lives by. Elena's country is no longer the majestic Russia of literature or the tsars, but a nation struggling to retain its power and its pride. Born with a desire to explore the world beyond her borders, Elena finds her passion in the complexity of the English language--but in the Soviet Union of the 1960s such a passion verges on the subversive. Elena is controlled by the state the same way she is controlled by her mother, a mirror image of her motherland: overbearing, protective, difficult to leave. In the battle between a strong-willed daughter and her authoritarian mother, the daughter, in the end, must break free and leave in order to survive. Through Elena's captivating voice, we learn not only the stories of Russian family life in the second half of the twentieth century, but also the story of one rebellious citizen whose curiosity and determination finally transport her to a new world. It is an elegy to the lost country of childhood, where those who leave can never return.

Leisureville:  Adventures in a World Without Children by Andrew D. Blechman

When his next-door neighbors in a quaint New England town suddenly pick up and move to a gated retired community in Florida called The Villages, Andrew Blechman is astonished by their stories, so he goes to investigate. Larger than Manhattan, with a golf course for every day of the month, two downtowns, its own newspaper, radio, and TV station, The Villages is a city of nearly one hundred thousand (and growing) missing only one thing: children.  In the critically acclaimed Leisureville, Blechman delves into life in the senior utopia, offering a hilarious firsthand report on everything from ersatz nostalgia to the residents’ surprisingly active sex life. But this is more than just a romp through a retirement paradise; Blechman traces the history of the age-segregated retirement phenomenon, and travels to Arizona to show what has happened to the pioneering developments after decades of segregation. A fascinating blend of serious history, social commentary, and hilarious, engaging reportage,Leisureville is an important book on a major, underreported trend.

The Good Shufu:  Finding Love, Self and Home on the Far Side of the World by Tracy Slater

The brave, wry, irresistible journey of a fiercely independent American woman who finds everything she ever wanted in the most unexpected place. Shufu : in Japanese it means "housewife," and it's the last thing Tracy Slater ever thought she'd call herself. A writer and academic, Tracy carefully constructed a life she loved in her hometown of Boston. But everything is upended when she falls head over heels for the most unlikely mate: a Japanese salary-man based in Osaka, who barely speaks her language. Deciding to give fate a chance, Tracy builds a life and marriage in Japan, a country both fascinating and profoundly alienating, where she can read neither the language nor the simplest social cues.
