Together: Connection & Community

The Auburn Public Library is proud to offer a reading and discussion group during which we will focus on connecting and building community.  What attributes do we share which connect us as members of a local community?  How can we gain a greater understanding of and empathy for one another?  Our reflections will be based on books, poetry, articles, and a film or two, and will touch upon four key components:  connection, empathy, diversity, and community.  Any books or articles we read will be provided to the group members, and the books are for participants to either keep for their personal library or to share with someone else.  

Our monthly discussions will be facilitated by James Ford, a black man who has spent over 40 years in Maine and works as a Restorative Practices Coordinator in Lewiston.  Dylan Welch, an English major at Bowdoin College will also be joining us each month.  Dylan brings with him a love of poetry which will be woven into our monthly meetings.

Meetings will be held monthly, the 3rd Thursday of each month, September through May, and will be held via Zoom.  The book group is open to teens (ages 16 and up) and adults.

This program is made possible by a grant from the Maine Public Library Fund.

For more information or to register, email dwallace@auburnpubliclibrary.org

Together: Connection & Community

The Auburn Public Library is proud to offer a reading and discussion group during which we will focus on connecting and building community.  What attributes do we share which connect us as members of a local community?  How can we gain a greater understanding of and empathy for one another?  Our reflections will be based on books, poetry, articles, and a film or two, and will touch upon four key components:  connection, empathy, diversity, and community.  Any books or articles we read will be provided to the group members, and the books are for participants to either keep for their personal library or to share with someone else.  

Our monthly discussions will be facilitated by James Ford, a black man who has spent over 40 years in Maine and works as a Restorative Practices Coordinator in Lewiston.  Dylan Welch, an English major at Bowdoin College will also be joining us each month.  Dylan brings with him a love of poetry which will be woven into our monthly meetings.

Meetings will be held monthly, the 3rd Thursday of each month, September through May, and will be held via Zoom.  The book group is open to teens (ages 16 and up) and adults.

This program is made possible by a grant from the Maine Public Library Fund.

New Year, New You! Hearing Nature's Lessons

Nature has been the subject of wonder for philosophers, artists, scientists, and poets for centuries.  Albert Einstein once said, "Look deep into nature, and you will understand everything."  Henry David Thoreau said he frequently had an appointment with a beech tree or a yellow birch.

Using a mindfulness-based approach, this class will examine how the physical traits, behaviors, and characteristics of animals can serve as lessons of wisdom for humans, while instilling a greater appreciation in all of us for our natural teachers.

This program is part of our January series, "New Year, New You," during which programs will focus on health and wellness.  It will take place in person, in the Conference Room on the ground floor.  Space is limited, and registration is required.  To register, click the link below or email dwallace@auburnpubliclibrary.org.

Populism & Nationalism in Europe

The Camden Conference and the Auburn Public Library invite you to a presentation by Francesco Duina, Professor of Sociology and European Studies at Bates College.  He has held appointments at Harvard University, Copenhagen Business School, and the University of British Columbia (where he was Professor and Head of Sociology from 2013-2015).  He is the author of nearly 30 articles in leading academic journals, op-ed pieces in newspapers such as the LA Times and The Guardian, and six books.  The most recent is Broke and Patriotic: Why Poor Americans Love Their Country (Stanford University Press, 2018).

Right-wing populist parties have scored major victories in Europe.  What can explain their success?  This talk will explore a rarely discussed factor:  their surprising ability to weave right-wing ideologies with left-wing or progressive positions.  These positions include support for gays, gender equality, and generous welfare policies.  Why and how do these parties do this?  We will consider the cases of the Party for Freedom in the Netherlands, the National Rally in France, and the Sweden Democrats.  In the conclusion, we will reflect on whether any of these observations apply to Donald Trump.

This program will be offered as a hybrid program (in person or virtually, via Zoom).   For our planning purposes, registration is required.  To register, click the link below or email dwallace@auburnpubliclibrary.org.  When registering, please let us know whether you plan to attend in person or would like the Zoom link emailed to you on February 9.

Black History in Maine

It is frequently said that Maine is the whitest state in America. Yet Black people have a long history in the Pine Tree State. The first one we know the name of was here some 12 years before the Pilgrims arrived aat Plymouth Rock. Maine's firs doctor may have been a Black man.  And the nation's first Black lawyer passed the bar and began practicing in Portland. Yes, Maine had slaves. But also builders, farmers, fishermen, ship captains, educators, and so many more that we never talk about.

This program will be presented by Bob Greene, a native of Portland and the eighth generation of his family to be born in Cumberland County. His roots in Maine stretch back into the 1700s. After graduating from Portland High, Bob went off to college and a career as a journalist, covering among other things airplane crashes, Mississippi River floods and the funeral of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He has met three presidents: Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson and Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe. And, as The Associated Press Tennis Writer, Bob traveled the world covering the sport. After retiring he returned home to Maine where his genealogical research has led to his deep knowledge about Maine’s Black history. He currently teaches a Black History of Maine course at OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute} at the University of Southern Maine. Bob also is the 2021 recipient of the Maine Historical Society’s Neal Allen Award, which is presented each year for exceptional contributions to Maine History.

This program is presented in honor of Black History Month, will be in person and will take place in the Androscoggin Community Room.  For our planning purposes, registration is required.  To register, click the link below or email dwallace@auburnpubliclibrary.org.

Book Discussion: How Democracies Die

The Camden Conference and the Auburn Public Library invite you to a book discussion -- “How Democracies Die” by Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt.

Since 2016, we have been asking the question, “Is our democracy in danger?”  Drawing on decades of research and a wide range of historical and global examples, from 1930s Europe to contemporary Hungary, Turkey, and Venezuela to the American South during Jim Crow, Levitsky and Ziblatt show how democracies die -- and how ours can be saved.  The authors are professors of government at Harvard University.  Levitsky’s research focuses on Latin America and the developing world; Ziblatt studies Europe from the 19th century to the present. (Information from book jacket, provided by publisher.)

This discussion will take place in person, in the Androscoggin Community Room.  To register, please contact the Reference Desk at 207-333-6640, ext 4.  Please give us an email address when registering so we can contact you when your book is available for pick up.  (You will most likely hear from us the week of January 3.)  Thanks to funding provided by the Camden Conference, the copy of the book is yours to keep.

The Camden Conference was founded in 1987 as a nonprofit, non-partisan educational organization whose mission is to foster informed discourse on world issues.

The 2022 conference “Europe: Challenged at Home and Abroad” will take place February 25-27, 2022, and will be in person in Camden, Maine.  For more details on this Conference, visit their website at camdenconference.org.

Together: Connection & Community

The Auburn Public Library is proud to offer a reading and discussion group during which we will focus on connecting and building community.  What attributes do we share which connect us as members of a local community?  How can we gain a greater understanding of and empathy for one another?  Our reflections will be based on books, poetry, articles, and a film or two, and will touch upon four key components:  connection, empathy, diversity, and community.  Any books or articles we read will be provided to the group members, and the books are for participants to either keep for their personal library or to share with someone else.  

Our monthly discussions will be facilitated by James Ford, a black man who has spent over 40 years in Maine and works as a Restorative Practices Coordinator in Lewiston.  Dylan Welch, an English major at Bowdoin College will also be joining us each month.  Dylan brings with him a love of poetry which will be woven into our monthly meetings.

Meetings will be held monthly, the 3rd Thursday of each month, September through May, and will be held via Zoom.  The book group is open to teens (ages 16 and up) and adults.

This program is made possible by a grant from the Maine Public Library Fund.

The Auburn Public Library is proud to offer a reading and discussion group during which we will focus on connecting and building community.  What attributes do we share which connect us as members of a local community?  How can we gain a greater understanding of and empathy for one another?  Our reflections will be based on books, poetry, articles, and a film or two, and will touch upon four key components:  connection, empathy, diversity, and community.  Any books or articles we read will be provided to the group members, and the books are for participants to either keep for their personal library or to share with someone else.  

Our monthly discussions will be facilitated by James Ford, a black man who has spent over 40 years in Maine and works as a Restorative Practices Coordinator in Lewiston.  Dylan Welch, an English major at Bowdoin College will also be joining us each month.  Dylan brings with him a love of poetry which will be woven into our monthly meetings.

Meetings will be held monthly, the 3rd Thursday of each month, September through May, and will be held via Zoom.  The book group is open to teens (ages 16 and up) and adults.

This program is made possible by a grant from the Maine Public Library Fund.
