'A New Birth of Freedom: Reconstruction and the 13th, 14th & 15th Amendments' with Jane Scarborough
In his Gettysburg Address, President Lincoln called on "us the living" to resolve that "these dead shall not have died in vain" and "that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom. . . ." Lincoln did not live to see the passage of the so-called "Reconstruction Amendments" which were intended to bring about that new birth. 
 
This eight-week course will discuss the significance of the amendments, how that promise was broken for another 100 years before Congress again took up civil rights, and finally, the significance of this history to the current demands for the long-delayed honest national dialogue and reconciliation on racism in America.

The class will meet every Friday from 10:30 to noon beginning Friday, September 18th.  Each week will include optional breakout discussions from noon until 12:30 PM. The final class will be on Friday, November 13th.  Please note there will be no class on Friday, October 9th.

The class will be held via Zoom and will be limited to 60 participants.  Registration is required. Please email mpl_mail@clamsnet.org or call 508-538-1435 x 3000 (Monday - Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM) to register.

The Economics of Climate Change

Climate Preparedness Week 2020 - CREW

The Economics of Climate Change with Madhavi Venkatesan, PhD

  • Our economic system has fostered individualism over community and competition over collaboration, because simply, these are the channels that promote economic growth as we measure it in Gross Domestic Product (GDP). We sell more when everyone has to have their own. But, individualism and competition results in unequal distribution that mimics the inequitable distribution of access to resources in our country. In many cases, inequity is a moral issue because the basis of it is exploitation of the vulnerable in a myriad of forms across historical time. In our discussion we will focus on the relationship between economics and sustainability: social justice, environmental justice and economic equity and also how our focus on economic growth has facilitated the speed of global Climate Change and exacerbated social justice issues along with the other two components of sustainability.

Virtual Exhibit - 'COVID-19: Concepts of Sickness and Wellness' - Maxwell Museum of Anthropology

From Albuquerque’s Maxwell Museum of Anthropology website:

"Museums are places where visitors encounter, explore, and engage with objects, ideas and topics that are new, familiar or challenging. And they are places where people can gather safely. In the face of the global Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology continues and extends our mission with an online exhibition about the current pandemic and different ways to know about it and look at it. We offer this information in partnership with many scholars, institutions and individuals with the goal to educate, add perspectives, and open conversations.
 
In order to consider the larger issues of “sickness” and “wellness”, we offer sections on those topics that approach these concepts both in the current moment in New Mexico, as well as throughout time and geographic location.  Additionally, we have a section for “your story”, presenting stories of people living through this pandemic in real-time. We invite you to offer your own story.

Lastly, we offer a synopsis of the current news related to the pandemic with links to pages and resources.

This exhibition is a living entity that continues to grow and change; help us to keep it vital by sharing your stories and helpful resources and by checking back for new content!"

Boston Book Festival - Interview with Natasha Trethewey

The first session of BBF 2020 will be broadcast on Under the Radar with Callie Crossley on GBH radio, 89.7. Tune in or listen later to Callie Crossley’s conversation with Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Natasha Trethewey about her memoir, Memorial Drive. Trethewey brings a poet’s lyricism to the tale of her mother’s murder by her ex-husband, Trethewey’s stepfather. The title refers to the road where Trethewey’s mother was killed, which runs from downtown Atlanta to Stone Mountain, the nation’s largest monument to the Confederacy. It  refers also to the author’s birthday on Confederate Memorial Day and to the task of memorializing and contextualizing her mother’s life and death. The New York Times review describes this searing work as “a controlled burn of chaos and intellection; it is a memoir that will really lay you out.” Join Callie Crossley and Natasha Trethewey for this unique audio kickoff to BBF 2020.

Boston Book Festival - Opening Keynote with Michael J. Sandel

In The Tyranny of Merit: What’s Become of the Common Good? political philosopher and academic rockstar Michael J. Sandel explains how belief in a meritocratic ideal has had a corrosive effect on the dignity of work and has left many in our society feeling humiliated and resentful. America’s bedrock belief that hard work and talent allows people to rise is belied by the facts: it is easier to rise from poverty in Canada, Germany, Denmark, and other European countries than in the United States. The winners in our society hold the smug conviction that they deserve success and that the losers, too, deserve their fate. Sandel posits that there should be an equality of condition in America, one that allows those without great power or prestige to also live with dignity and the esteem of others. Join Michael Sandel in conversation with the Emmy and Peabody Award–winning host of WBUR’s Here & NowRobin Young

Boston Book Festival - Reading Like a Writer: Protest

For the past several years, the BBF’s “Reading Like a Writer” series of craft-focused author discussions have become fan favorites, giving attendees an opportunity to dig deep and gain insights into the choices that shape a writer’s craft. In this session, host Michelle Hoover will guide us through close readings of excerpts from the work of three authors whose new novels contain elements of protest. In The Book of V., novelist (and past One City One Story author) Anna Solomon disrupts patriarchal norms with a tripartite reckoning with the Biblical story of Esther that the Washington Post calls a “multifaceted masterwork.” Debut novelist Asha Lemmie, in Fifty Words for Rain, offers an epic tale of family reckoning and coming of age, about a girl born to a Japanese noblewoman and a Black American GI during World War II. And in his debut novel, Winter CountsDavid Heska Wanbli Weiden pens a thriller about a modern-day vigilante whose quest for justice provokes a reckoning with his own Native identity. These authors will provide context for their own excerpts and will interact with one another’s work as well—it’s like a master class for writers and readers alike! Register for this session in advance on Crowdcast to access the authors’ excerpts and to add your own questions and observations to the conversation.

Virtual author talk with David Michaelis, author of the biography 'Eleanor: A Life'

You’re invited to a virtual author talk with David Michaelis, author of the biography Eleanor: A Life, a breakthrough portrait of America’s longest-serving First Lady, rich with family history. Join us at 6pm on Thursday, October 8, for this free event presented in partnership with American Ancestors/New England Historic Genealogical Society and Porter Square Books.

This cradle-to-grave biography—the first single-volume portrait in six decades—rediscovers Eleanor Roosevelt’s life of transformation, from her Gilded Age childhood as the orphaned niece of President Theodore Roosevelt; to an irreconcilable marriage with her ambitious fifth cousin Franklin, with whom she became a New York “power couple”; to her life-culminating role as world-circling activist, diplomat, and chief architect of international human rights.

Drawing on new research, Michaelis’s riveting portrait is rich with insight into Eleanor’s emotional life and relationships, her struggles with motherhood, and role as her husband’s surrogate in which she transformed the career-ending storm of polio into the sunrise of the U.S. president who brought the nation out of the Depression and on to victory in World War II. Don’t miss learning more about this major American figure, a role model for heartfelt and effective political engagement.

David Michaelis is the bestselling author of Schulz and Peanuts and N.C. Wyeth, which won the Ambassador Book Award for Biography & Autobiography.

Boston Book Festival - How to Be a Better Human

Let’s start with an apology. When we hurt someone else or have been hurt by someone else, the true pain often lies in the inability to fix the breach, rather than the incident itself. In A Good Apology, clinical psychologist Molly Howes guides readers through the steps of a meaningful apology, illustrating her principles with stories of clients who healed broken relationships as well as with apologies that have played out in the public sphere. From there, we move to ethical living. According to Harvard Business School professor Max Bazerman, ethics are not something reserved for philosophers—we all make ethical decisions daily. In Better Not Perfect, he offers a guide for how to clarify goals and balance competing claims to attain “maximum sustainable goodness.” And finally, if you have ever wondered how one person can have a positive impact on the world, Brad Aronson has some answers. Small, simple acts of humankindness, such as the ones that Brad and his family experienced when they went through a very dark time, can change lives. In HumanKind, he tells the stories of the transformative effects of small acts and offers over fifty ways that you too can change someone’s life. Our session on goodness will be hosted by the great Meghan Irons, who writes for the Boston Globe on how culture, politics, and social issues intersect with everyday life.

Boston Book Festival - Pete Buttigieg: Trust

In partnership with the Boston Globe and their Op-Talks event series, the Boston Book Festival will host Pete Buttigieg to discuss his important new book, Trust: America’s Best Chance. Trust in our institutions and each other is the glue that holds societies together. Without it, societal challenges cannot be met. Mayor Pete uses a blend of history, political philosophy, and memoir to show how trust has been destroyed by a confluence of forces. To confront the grave challenges facing us -- climate change, racial justice, and now, pandemic, Buttigieg contends that we can and must create, repair, and deepen networks of trust. He hopes to inspire a movement to rebuild the foundations of trust that have weakened over time and which our current polarized time has stressed to the point of breaking. Join Mayor Pete as he talks to Bina Venkataraman, the Boston Globe’s Editorial Page Editor and author of The Optimist’s Telescope

'A New Birth of Freedom: Reconstruction and the 13th, 14th & 15th Amendments' with Jane Scarborough
In his Gettysburg Address, President Lincoln called on "us the living" to resolve that "these dead shall not have died in vain" and "that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom. . . ." Lincoln did not live to see the passage of the so-called "Reconstruction Amendments" which were intended to bring about that new birth. 
 
This eight-week course will discuss the significance of the amendments, how that promise was broken for another 100 years before Congress again took up civil rights, and finally, the significance of this history to the current demands for the long-delayed honest national dialogue and reconciliation on racism in America.

The class will meet every Friday from 10:30 to noon beginning Friday, September 18th.  Each week will include optional breakout discussions from noon until 12:30 PM. The final class will be on Friday, November 13th.  Please note there will be no class on Friday, October 9th.

The class will be held via Zoom and will be limited to 60 participants.  Registration is required. Please email mpl_mail@clamsnet.org or call 508-538-1435 x 3000 (Monday - Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM) to register.

Virtual Escape Room - Maker Escape

This week's Virtual Escape Room was created by Celeste Trottier, Teen Services Librarian at the St. Albert Public Library.:

You are Makerspace ninja. You love to geek out on the latest tech and come up with amazing codes.
Stuck at home, you can tell that you're really starting to annoy your family. You've hacked every tablet, phone and computer in sight and you're getting bored.

You were tinkering with your smartphone in the middle of the night, and suddenly a message pops up on your phone from a mysterious phone number....

Boston Book Festival - Fiction: Witches and Other Bad Heroines

In this can’t-miss fiction session, we’ll meet indelible characters, young women whose ambition, desires, or thirst for revenge lead them outside society’s norms—which is just fine with them. In Alix E. Harrow’s historical fantasy The Once and Future Witches, the four Eastwood sisters rediscover the lost art of witchcraft in 1893 and aim to turn the nascent suffragist movement in New Salem into a witches’ movement. Witches also populate the pages of Quan Barry’s We Ride Upon Sticks—in this case, the “sticks” of the title aren't brooms but field hockey sticks, as the Danvers girls’ field hockey team makes a dark bargain to ensure a winning season. Emily M. Danforth (author of YA favorite The Miseducation of Cameron Post) makes her adult fiction debut with Plain Bad Heroines, an expansive ghost story of sorts, about a shuttered girls’ school and the century-old lesbian memoir that supposedly cursed it. Layne Fargo’s thriller They Never Learn also has an academic setting, profiling both a female professor/serial killer and a pair of first-year college students on a quest for revenge. Bridget Marshall of UMass–Lowell will host this lively hour devoted to fearlessly feminist fiction.

Virtual Escape Room - Oh the Horror: Classic Tales Escape Room

This week's Virtual Escape Room was created by Chesley Lonberger and Jason Barone, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library:

After a fitful sleep you awake a monstrous creature looms above you. The monster says nothing but reaches for your neck. Lucky the creature movements are laboured and sluggish. You are able to scramble away before his hands are upon you. You scream and run to your bedroom door. It is locked. In panic you hide in your closet. Under your clothes and behind an old suitcase you notice 1 small door in the back of your closet that was not there before. It has on it 3 small locks, 2 are open but the last 1 remains locked.

'A New Birth of Freedom: Reconstruction and the 13th, 14th & 15th Amendments' with Jane Scarborough
In his Gettysburg Address, President Lincoln called on "us the living" to resolve that "these dead shall not have died in vain" and "that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom. . . ." Lincoln did not live to see the passage of the so-called "Reconstruction Amendments" which were intended to bring about that new birth. 
 
This eight-week course will discuss the significance of the amendments, how that promise was broken for another 100 years before Congress again took up civil rights, and finally, the significance of this history to the current demands for the long-delayed honest national dialogue and reconciliation on racism in America.

The class will meet every Friday from 10:30 to noon beginning Friday, September 18th.  Each week will include optional breakout discussions from noon until 12:30 PM. The final class will be on Friday, November 13th.  Please note there will be no class on Friday, October 9th.

The class will be held via Zoom and will be limited to 60 participants.  Registration is required. Please email mpl_mail@clamsnet.org or call 508-538-1435 x 3000 (Monday - Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM) to register.

The class will be held via Zoom and will be limited to 60 participants.  Registration is required. Please email mpl_mail@clamsnet.org or call 508-538-1435 x 3000 (Monday - Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM) to register.  

In his Gettysburg Address, President Lincoln called on "us the living" to resolve that "these dead shall not have died in vain" and "that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom. . . ." Lincoln did not live to see the passage of the so-called "Reconstruction Amendments" which were intended to bring about that new birth.
