Author Talk with David Goodrich

Join author David Goodrich as he takes you on “A Voyage Across an Ancient Ocean:
A Bicycle Journey through the Northern Dominion of Oil.

As a climate scientist and former sailor, David embarked on a different kind of voyage in the summer of 2018, looking to go to places where climate change comes from, that is, where carbon is coming from the ground. He began in the tar sands of Alberta – source region for the recently cancelled Keystone XL Pipeline -- and rode 1100 miles solo through the boreal forest and prairie to the Bakken oil field of North Dakota. The ancient ocean of the title is the Western Interior Seaway, the inland sea that laid down both oil deposits. The ride ended at Theodore Roosevelt National Park, where our original conservationist president spent his days as a cowboy. Roosevelt might well have had some thoughts about the issue of climate change.

A volume with the above title was published by Pegasus Books and is available in the Library’s catalog https://bit.ly/3prJolq; for $25.71 at Bookshop.org https://bit.ly/2MCvmP2 or other online outlets. An audiobook is available for $24.99 from Libro.fm at https://bit.ly/3cl7B9i.

About David Goodrich
Dr. David Goodrich worked at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, retiring as Director of Climate Observations. Earlier in his career, he spent three years on NOAA ships and even earlier worked on oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. He also served as the Director of the UN Global Climate Observing System in Geneva, Switzerland. In addition to the bicycle trip from Alberta to North Dakota, he has ridden from Delaware to Oregon, down the Appalachians and across Montana, South Dakota, France and Spain. His earlier book was “A Hole in the Wind: A Climate Scientist’s Bicycle Journey across the United States”. He lives in Maryland.

“The Last Full Measure of Devotion: Honoring our Vets”

 

Professor Hamish Lutris, Capital Community College, presents “The Last Full Measure of Devotion: Honoring our Vets”.

From the French and Indian War to Afghanistan and Iraq, American men and women have placed themselves in harm’s way under the American flag. Soldiers serving in the wars of the United States have also often been civilian volunteers who left farms and factories to fight under conditions challenging to the very core of their humanity. How to honor that sacrifice has been a question for our country since its inception. This presentation will discuss the ways veterans have been recognized for their service, and how that recognition has changed over time. It will range widely, from creating our first veterans’ organization, the Cincinnati, to observing holidays like Memorial Day, sponsoring the creation of national cemeteries, and passing the GI Bill, among others. 

Register to receive the Zoom Link and password. Registration ends the day before the event. For more information, call 203 736-1482 or visit www.derbypubliclibrary.org.

About Hamish Lutris: Hamish Lutris is an Associate Professor of History, Political Science, and Geography at Capital Community College in Hartford, Connecticut. He has worked in some of America’s premier natural and historical sites, leading hiking and historical programs. He has also lectured extensively in the United States, Europe, and Canada, presenting programs on wide-ranging historical topics, including Native American history, the Civil War, Scientific, Social and cultural history, World Wars I and II, and the American West.

Mission Statement: The Derby Public Library’s mission is to endeavor to provide quality service to patrons and to contribute to the knowledge, culture, understanding and enjoyment of the community. This is done by providing a variety of resources, information, patron assistance, special events and programs. The library is located at 313 Elizabeth Street, Derby, CT 06418.
