U.S. POLICY TOWARD AFRICA
How can U.S. policy live up to its promise and values while securing its interests in the region?

Africa is in the midst of an unprecedented transformation. The continent is home to some of the fastest growing economies in the world, and it’s become a draw for foreign investors from across the globe. After the “Obamamania” of 2008 died down, though, the realization that Obama wasn’t going to overturn, or even prioritize, U.S. Africa policy kicked in. Still, the U.S. has promised to promote “strong institutions, not strong men,” and to favor good governance and healthy economies over profit. How can U.S. policy live up to its promise and values while securing its interests in the region?

Leader:  Steve Engler

Host:  Carol Leiter

misc_none 2:00 PM  -  3:30 PM Author Carrie Russell   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

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.

SYRIA'S REFUGEE CRISIS

As Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and other neighbors strive to accommodate the millions of Syrians, the risk of allowing Syrians to become dependent on emergency aid and forming a “lost generation” remains.

Syrians have for a century welcomed over a million refugees from Armenia, Palestine, Iraq and other countries around the region. Now, thanks to a multiyear civil war, they are on track to become the source of the world’s largest refugee population in a matter of months. As Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and other neighbors strive to accommodate the millions of Syrians, the risk of allowing Syrians to become dependent on emergency aid and forming a “lost generation” remains. Ultimately, though, the safety of displaced Syrians rests with the whole international community.

HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN THE 21ST CENTURY

The U.S. and the international community have adopted various treaties and laws to prevent trafficking, but to truly understand and combat the issue, they must find the root causes enabling traffickers to exploit millions of victims.

Human trafficking represents a multibillion in international trade per annum and continues to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries. While undeniably a global phenomenon, the U.S., as one of the world’s leading human trafficking importers, bears a special responsibility to combat this practice. The U.S. and the international community have adopted various treaties and laws to prevent trafficking, but to truly understand and combat the issue, they must find the root causes enabling traffickers to exploit millions of victims.

BRAZIL'S METAMORPHOSIS

Some of Brazil’s trickiest problems — deep divisions over how to tackle serious income inequality, weak civic institutions and poor regional leadership — have held it back.

Brazil — it’s the “B” in the acronym BRICS, five emerging economies once seen as soon-to-be superpowers. After economic troubles in the 1990s, Brazil has risen to new global prominence — it’s drawing in more investment, working on global issues ranging from climate change to peacekeeping, and even hosting the 2016 Olympics. But some of Brazil’s trickiest problems — deep divisions over how to tackle serious income inequality, weak civic institutions and poor regional leadership — have held it back.

Leader:  Carol Leiter

Host:  Jack Langsdorf

Paris Letters by Janice MacLeod
 “How much money does it take to quit your job?”  Exhausted and on the verge of burnout, 
 Janice MacLeod poses this question to herself as she doodles on a notepad at her desk.
 Surprisingly, the answer isn't as daunting as she expected. With a little math and a lot of
 determination, Janice cuts back, saves up, and buys herself two years of freedom in Europe.

A Trip to the Beach:  Living on Island time in the Caribbean
by Melinda Blanchard
This is the story of a trip to the beach that never ends. It's about a husband and wife who escape civilization to build a small restaurant on an island paradise -- and discover that even paradise has its pitfalls. It's a story filled with calamities and comedy, culinary disasters and triumphs, and indelible portraits of people who live and work on a sliver of beauty set in the Caribbean Sea. It's about the maddening, exhausting, outlandish complications of trying to live the simple life -- and the joy that comes when you somehow pull it off.

Kinky Gazpacho:  Life, Love & Spain by Lori L. Tharps
Magazine writer and editor Lori Tharps was born and raised in the comfortable but mostly White suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where she was often the only person of color in her neighborhood. At an early age, Lori decided that her destiny would be discovered in Spain. She didn't know anyone from Spain, had never visited the country, and hardly spoke the language. Still, she never faltered in her plans to go.  Arriving in the country as an optimistic college student, however, Lori soon discovers Spain's particular attitude toward Blackness.

Sideways on a Scooter:  Life and Love in India by Miranda Kennedy
When twenty-something reporter Miranda Kennedy leaves her job in New York City and travels to India with no employment prospects, she longs to immerse herself in the turmoil and excitement of a rapidly developing country. What she quickly learns in Delhi are early signs that life is less Westernized than she’d thought.  Living in Delhi for more than five years, and finding a city pulsing with possibility and hope, Kennedy experiences friendships, love affairs, and losses that open a window onto the opaque world of Indian politics and culture—and alter her own attitudes about everything from food and clothes to marriage and family.
