Author Talk: Whitney Scharer, The Age of Light (Main)

A captivating debut novel by Whitney Scharer, The Age of Light tells the story of Vogue model turned renowned photographer Lee Miller, and her search to forge a new identity as an artist after a life spent as a muse. Arriving in Paris in 1929, Lee catches the eye of the famous Surrealist Man Ray and convinces him to take her on as his assistant. Man Ray turns out to be an egotistical, charismatic force, and as they work together in the darkroom, their personal and professional lives become intimately entwined. Lee's journey takes us from the cabarets of bohemian Paris to the battlefields of war-torn Europe during WWII, from discovering radical new photography techniques to documenting the liberation of the concentration camps as one of the first female war correspondents. Through it all, Lee must grapple with the question of whether it's possible to reconcile romantic desire with artistic ambition. Told in interweaving timelines, this sensuous, richly detailed novel brings Lee Miller-a brilliant and pioneering artist-out of the shadows of a man's legacy and into the light.

Author Talk: Christopher Castellani, author of Leading Men (Main)

Christopher Castellani will discuss his new book, Leading Men, in the Periodical Room of the Main Library on Tuesday, April 2 at 6:30 p.m.

 

Leading Men is "an expansive yet intimate story of desire, artistic ambition, and fidelity, set in the glamorous literary and film circles of 1950s Italy." It is a New York Times "Book of the Times" Selection and an IndieNext Pick for February 2019. 

Praise for Leading Men

“Blazing...casts a spell right from the start. [Leading Men] vividly reimagines the relationship between Williams and Frank Merlo, and offers intricate thoughts about the nature of fidelity, the artistic impulse, and estrangement... [Castellani’s] scenes glitter... This book is a kind of poem in praise of pleasure. Its author knows a great deal about life; better, he knows how to express what he knows. But this is an alert, serious, sweeping novel. To hold it in your hands is like holding, to crib a line from Castellani, a front-row opera ticket.”Dwight Garner, The New York Times

“Castellani’s spectacular fourth novel... hits the trifecta of being moving, beautifully written, and a bona fide page-turner. This is a wonderful examination of artists and the people who love them and change their work in large and imperceptible ways.”Publishers Weekly (Starred)

Author Bio
Christopher Castellani is the artistic director of Grub Street, the country’s largest and leading independent creative writing center. He is the author of three critically-acclaimed novels, A Kiss from Maddalena (Algonquin Books, 2003)—winner of the Massachusetts Book Award in 2004— The Saint of Lost Things (Algonquin, 2005), a BookSense (IndieBound) Notable Book; and All This Talk of Love (Algonquin, 2013), a New York Times Editors’ Choice and finalist for the Ferro-Grumley Literary Award. The Art of Perspective: Who Tells the Story, a collection of essays on point of view in fiction, was published in 2016 by Graywolf Press. He has recently completed a new novel, Leading Men, for which he received Fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the MacDowell Colony, and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Leading Men was published in February 2019 by Viking Penguin.

Mindful Read and Be Well during National Library Week (Main)

Reading heals us! Join us for a literary conversation that explores reading as a mindful wellness practice. How does reading help us untangle struggles in our own lives? How do stories enhance our understanding of human nature, increase empathy, and lead to shifts in perspective? We’ll look at aspects of bibliotherapy, and discuss why reading not only relaxes the ruminating mind, but sparks joyful human connection.

Lara JK Wilson, MA, GCMS - A meditator for over thirty years, Lara’s practices explore how mindfulness and the creative process benefit health. In addition to completing a Master’s Certificate in Mindfulness Studies at Lesley University, Lara is an award-winning author of short stories and a Grub Street instructor and former board member with a master’s degree in literature from Harvard, Lara advocates incorporating mindfulness in all levels of education. She has developed mindfulness curricula for schools in the north and south, led mindful wellness retreats, and designed personal practice with hundreds. After experiencing the power of mindfulness during eighteen months of cancer treatment, Lara established Be Well Be Here, a non-profit collaborative mindful wellness center in Concord, MA.

Poetry and Lyrical Essays: An Afternoon with DeWitt Henry & Dzvinia Orlowsky

 

Dzvinia Orlowsky, award-winning Ukrainian-American poet, and DeWitt Henry, founding editor of Ploughshares and award-winning novelist and lyrical essayist, will read from their recently launched collections - books that adroitly intertwine the language of prose and poetry in voices that sing on the page as well as in the mind. Orlowsky’s strikingly intimate Bad Harvest  “stakes her claim to an oeuvre, her own territory in American letters…Grounded in the funkiness of family love, marriage, the body in time, [her poems] turn to face history—our contemporary vortex, and the nightmares of Eastern Europe in the 20th century.” – D.Nurkse

DeWitt Henry’s Sweet Marjoram: Notes and Essays is a collection of "original, wise, and sparkling” chapters including Weather, Folly, Handshakes, Empathy.In his precise and luminous prose, he maps our contemporary consciousness, noting our psychic landmarks, our moral architecture, the roads we take to the things that matter.” - Richard Hoffman

Mindful Transitions: Change as a Great Adventure (Main)

Life is full of change: school years end, kids leave for college, parents age, health concerns arise, careers shifts, unexpected events unfold – oh my! How can we face life’s transitions without feeling utterly overwhelmed? One way is to experience life as moments of possibility through mindful wellness practices. As Roz Zander writes in The Art of Possibility: Transforming Professional and Personal Life, we can “draw a different frame around the same set of circumstances and new pathways come into view.” Join us to discuss cultivating new practices that reduce anxiety and help us thrive. Launch your adventure toward possibility and contentment!

Lara JK Wilson, MA, GCMS - A meditator for over thirty years, Lara’s practices explore how mindfulness and the creative process benefit health. In addition to completing a Master’s Certificate in Mindfulness Studies at Lesley University, Lara is an award-winning author of short stories and a Grub Street instructor and former board member with a master’s degree in literature from Harvard, Lara advocates incorporating mindfulness in all levels of education. She has developed mindfulness curricula for schools in the north and south, led mindful wellness retreats, and designed personal practice with hundreds. After experiencing the power of mindfulness during eighteen months of cancer treatment, Lara established Be Well Be Here, a non-profit collaborative mindful wellness center in Concord, MA.
