Looking Back: Early Health Care Options in Auburn

In celebration of Auburn's 150th anniversary, author and historian Annette Dorey will give a presentation on Earliest Health Care Options in L-A, 1845 to 1920s . Learn about less-well-known physicians (of various disciplines), including our early female physicians, the private hospitals and clinics, and medical competition. The historical presentation will include profiles of some of the local pioneering female physicians and the rarely-known private hospitals, infirmary and clinics. 

Dorey is a former professor of teacher education and human development at the University of New Brunswick, Canada. Her major publications are based on extensive historical research and include the history of early 20th-century campaigns to reduce high infant mortality rates and improve child health, titled "Better Baby Contests: The Scientific Quest for Perfect Childhood Health in the Early 20th Century." Another major work on women's history was published June 2012, "Maine Mothers Who Murdered 1875?1925: Doing Time in State Prison." an insightful look at women in Maine's criminal justice history. Her latest book was released June 2013, "Miss Dr. Lucy"--Maine's Pioneering Female Physicians, 1850s-1920.

This current campaign is still in its starting stages.  The adventurers are in a desolate burnt wasteland with clouds of ash.  There are several towns of survivors living underground in tightly knit communities.  With a world to both discover and save they head forth into the wastelands.

This D&D group is lead by Mike Hynes, a student at Edward Little, and meets every Thursday at 2:30 in the Teen Space.  Although scheduled until 5:30, the meeting may go on beyond that time. All are welcome!

Auburn Page Turners - Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City

Title to be Discussed: Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City

What if the dominant discourse on poverty is just wrong? What if the problem isn’t that poor people have bad morals – that they’re lazy and impulsive and irresponsible and have no family values – or that they lack the skills and smarts to fit in with our shiny 21st-century economy? What if the problem is that poverty is profitable? These are the questions at the heart of Evicted, Matthew Desmond’s extraordinary ethnographic study of tenants in low-income housing in the deindustrialised middle-sized city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Join us for what is sure to be a fascinating discussion.

Speak Your Mind Non-Fiction Book Group - The Human Age

If you have an interest in social issues, combine your passion with some fantastic reading and join our non-fiction Speak Your Mind book group. Each month, the group will read a non-fiction title and then meet to talk about the book and the larger social issues. This month we will read "The Human Age" by Diane Ackerman to talk about humans impact on the planet and is there hope for reversing negative environmental trends. In this landmark book, she confronts the unprecedented fact that the human race is now the single dominant force of change on the planet. Humans have “subdued 75 percent of the land surface, concocted a wizardry of industrial and medical marvels, strung lights all across the darkness.” We now collect the DNA of vanishing species in a “frozen ark,” equip orangutans with iPads, create wearable technologies and synthetic species that might one day outsmart us. Ackerman takes us on an exciting journey to understand this bewildering new reality, introducing us to many of the people and ideas now creating —perhaps saving — our future.

Join us and respectfully Speak Your Mind as we talk about The Human Age.

Teens! Dungeons & Dragons

Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) is a wondrous adventure that is created by the Dungeon Master (DM) and the players.  Players become characters of their own design, carefully crafted to be the way they want:  A stealthy halfling rogue that strikes from the darkness; a wise, old, elven wizard with power of magic; a tough orc barbarian that charges into battle; and everything in between!

This current campaign is still in its starting stages.  The adventurers are in a desolate burnt wasteland with clouds of ash.  There are several towns of survivors living underground in tightly knit communities.  With a world to both discover and save they head forth into the wastelands.

This D&D group is lead by Mike Hynes, a student at Edward Little, and meets every Thursday at 2:30 in the Teen Space.  Although scheduled until 5:30, the meeting may go on beyond that time. All are welcome!

Film and Discussion: American Creed

In the film AMERICAN CREED, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice come together from different points of view to explore ideals of freedom, fairness and opportunity. Their inquiry frames the stories of citizen-activists including baseball manager Joe Maddon, Marine Tegan Griffith, civic entrepreneur Eric Liu and others striving to realize their own visions of America's promise.

The stories in "American Creed" explore national ideals and identity from diverse points of view:

In segregated Birmingham, AL, Condoleezza Rice’s family embraced America’s foundational ideals, faith-based community building, and the pursuit of education as the key to overcoming Jim Crow.

David M. Kennedy’s family lost everything in the Great Depression, and he sees that period as a crucible of modern American identity.

Major League Baseball manager Joe Maddon brings residents of his Pennsylvania coal country hometown together after a controversial immigration ordinance threatens to tear them apart.

Elementary school principal Deidre Prevett, a Native American from the Muscogee (Creek) Nation in East Tulsa, OK, fights for struggling children from transient families who pass through town.

Marine Sergeant Tegan Griffith, from rural Wisconsin, brings fellow veterans together to reflect on what holds us together as a nation.

Based in Seattle, civic entrepreneur Eric Liu convenes people across political differences to solve problems and renew their commitment to American democracy.

The PBS special concludes with a segment filmed in three different high schools around the country.

A Bates scholar will lead a discussion on the film and its central theme of  “What should it mean to be American?”

This program is co-sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). American Creed Community Conversations center around the American Creed documentary by WTTW and Citizen Film with major underwriting from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Film: Blue Collar and Buddha

This dramatic documentary explores America’s most recent refugees, struggling against the mounting tension of a post-Viet Nam era filled with guilt and anger. A group of Laotian refugees have built a Buddhist temple on a small farmstead on the outskirts of a resolutely blue-collar town in Illinois. Their efforts to preserve their culture and religious heritage have been greeted by several terrorist attacks on their temple.

By investigating opinions of townspeople and officials concerning the Laotians, the film becomes a barometer of America’s attitude towards refugees and immigrants. Featuring rich and colorful Buddhist ceremonies and Laotians working in a factory, BLUE COLLAR AND BUDDHA is a moving portrait of the experience of today’s refugees and the drama that results when East meets West.

At the end of this documentary, a discussion will follow concerning assimilation and who gets to be called an American. 

This program is co-sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). American Creed Community Conversations center around the American Creed documentary by WTTW and Citizen Film with major underwriting from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) is a wondrous adventure that is created by the Dungeon Master (DM) and the players.  Players become characters of their own design, carefully crafted to be the way they want:  A stealthy halfling rogue that strikes from the darkness; a wise, old, elven wizard with power of magic; a tough orc barbarian that charges into battle; and everything in between!

This current campaign is still in its starting stages.  The adventurers are in a desolate burnt wasteland with clouds of ash.  There are several towns of survivors living underground in tightly knit communities.  With a world to both discover and save they head forth into the wastelands.

This D&D group is lead by Mike Hynes, a student at Edward Little, and meets every Thursday at 2:30 in the Teen Space.  Although scheduled until 5:30, the meeting may go on beyond that time. All are welcome!

KIDS! Summer Reading Kick-off Odds Bodkin Presents Paul Bunyan Tall Tales

We are very excited that Odds Bodkin will help us kick off our 2019 Summer Reading program with an evening presentation of Rip Roarin' Paul Bunyan Tales. With the crazy character voice of Sourdough Sam leading the way for the men of Paul Bunyan’s logging camp, Master Storyteller Odds Bodkin presents RIP ROARIN’ PAUL BUNYAN TALES, an evening of American tall tales that will have you holding your sides with laughter.
 Not only do characters speak, but vocal sound effects for roaring wind, crashing trees, mooing oxen, bull whips, giant bumblebees and other crazy things fly past, adding vivid imagery to Bodkin’s high-energy telling.
 Called “a consummate storyteller” by The New York Times and “a one-man vocal universe by TimeOut New York during his Off-Broadway series, Bodkin’s adult shows in on Harvard Square in Cambridge MA regularly sell out. So bring the kids to this free show in Auburn and settle in for a storytelling they’ll never forget.

Teen Summer Reading Program -- A Universe of Stories

Join us as we kick off this year's Summer Reading Program with Master Storyteller Odds Bodkin!

During his visit, Odds Bodkin will be performing HERCULES IN HELL for a teen audience. This compelling, rugged tale explores the genuine myth of Hercules, the ancient Greek hero, from his early murders and madness through his 12 Labors to his bizarre death. Odds Bodkin accompanies the tale with a full score on 12-string guitar and tells it using voices for Hercules, Hades, Persephone and a host of other gods and mortals. Ultimately, a tale about learning empathy and self-control. And a solid exploration of Greek mythology for young people.

Although designed for teens, adults are also welcome at this event.

For more information about Odds Bodkin, visit his website at https://www.oddsbodkin.net/.
