A Year of Plastic

National Beach Day is August 30th and celebrates all the sandy beaches across the nation. It also provides an opportunity to help keep those relaxing places clean, so we can continue to enjoy them long into the future.

Photographer/marine debris artist Sarah Thornington realized the sheer quantity of plastic marine debris she was picking up on a regular basis from Cape Cod beaches. She spent a year doing a beach clean-up every single day, counting and documenting the plastic debris she found, as well as posting daily on her Instagram account, @AYearofPlastic.

To keep awareness of the plastic debris problem, Sarah creates art, photographs, and displays with some of the 21,000 objects she found during that time,always adding to her art supplies through new cleanups. She’s had 4 shows of this work.

Sarah’s program shares a little of her project including some of her quirky and interesting finds; tips to reduce plastic use; some of her art,
along with ideas for art projects and other ways you can use plastic you have at home (or have found during a clean-up)

Sarah Jane Thornington is a portrait photographer/marine debris artist who has lived on Cape Cod for the last 30 plus years. A passionate protector of the planet, she can often be found cleaning the beaches or creating with the debris found to help keep awareness of our single-use plastic problem. She has completed both the expert and leadership tracks of the UN Environment Massive Online Open Course on Marine Debris, and her work can be found in homes across the country and abroad.

Register for this virtual program at tinyurl.com/y7jh322z.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Zoom meeting information will be emailed to registered attendees and our newsletter subscribers. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. Please note that programming may be affected or cancelled due to COVID-19.

Join us for a discussion of the 2021 One Book One Region selection of Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNER

From the infinitely inventive author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe, a deeply personal novel about race, pop culture, immigration, assimilation, and escaping the roles we are forced to play.


Willis Wu doesn’t perceive himself as the protagonist in his own life: he’s merely Generic Asian Man. Sometimes he gets to be Background Oriental Making a Weird Face or even Disgraced Son, but always he is relegated to a prop. Yet every day, he leaves his tiny room in a Chinatown SRO and enters the Golden Palace restaurant, where Black and White, a procedural cop show, is in perpetual production. He’s a bit player here, too, but he dreams of being Kung Fu Guy—the most respected role that anyone who looks like him can attain. Or is it?

After stumbling into the spotlight, Willis finds himself launched into a wider world than he’s ever known, discovering not only the secret history of Chinatown, but the buried legacy of his own family. Infinitely inventive and deeply personal, exploring the themes of pop culture, assimilation, and immigration—Interior Chinatown is Charles Yu’s most moving, daring, and masterful novel yet.

"Fresh and beautiful. . . . Interior Chinatown represents yet another stellar destination in the journey of a sui generis author of seemingly limitless skill and ambition.” —The New York Times Book Review

The discussion will be led by Laurie Wolfley, professor at UCONN Avery Point.
