An Evening with Jonathan Putnam

Jonathan F. Putnam is a writer and attorney. A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, he is a nationally renowned trial lawyer and recognized Lincoln scholar. Jonathan has given talks about Lincoln for civic groups, bookstores, libraries and lawyer groups all across the country. He has frequently been featured on TV and in print.  He was chosen to narrate two episodes on the young Lincoln for the popular “10 American Presidents” podcast series. 

His books in the Lincoln and Speed Mystery series include Final Resting Place (2018), Perish from the Earth (2017) and These Honored Dead (2016). He will be here with us this evening to discuss the fourth book in the series, A House Divided, which retells the story of the greatest unsolved murder mystery from Abraham Lincoln's real-life law practice. The books have been optioned for the screen, and Variety magazine has reported that a major TV series is in the works.

Jonathan's novels will be available to purchase from Riverstone Books at the event.

Meditation in Motion -- Introduction to Silat
Pak (instructor) Adam Kripke will introduce you to Silat Tuo, an ancient 1500 year old Indonesian martial art practiced for both its self-defense applications as well as its benefits to one's mind, body, and spirit.  Students are guided through a comprehensive system of full-body movement exercises in conjunction with specific breathing, and meditation methodology.  Benefits of the art include improved sensitivity, awareness, mindfulness, stress & anxiety reduction, balance, flexibility, fine motor skills, muscle tone, as well as rehabilitation and injury prevention. 
 
This is an introduction to the art focusing on the health and spiritual benefits and movements instead of the martial art applications.  "Meditation in Motion" is also beneficial for individuals with interests in Dance, Yoga, Aikido, Chi-Gung, Tai Chi, etc; however the movements are drawn from the martial art of Silat Tuo.  (All skill and ability levels are welcome, recommended age 10+).  Second Mondays of each month.

Pak (instructor) Adam Kripke will introduce you to Silat Tuo, an ancient 1500 year old Indonesian martial art practiced for both its self-defense applications as well as its benefits to one's mind, body, and spirit.  Students are guided through a comprehensive system of full-body movement exercises in conjunction with specific breathing, and meditation methodology.  Benefits of the art include improved sensitivity, awareness, mindfulness, stress & anxiety reduction, balance, flexibility, fine motor skills, muscle tone, as well as rehabilitation and injury prevention. 
 
This is an introduction to the art focusing on the health and spiritual benefits and movements instead of the martial art applications.  "Meditation in Motion" is also beneficial for individuals with interests in Dance, Yoga, Aikido, Chi-Gung, Tai Chi, etc; however the movements are drawn from the martial art of Silat Tuo.  (All skill and ability levels are welcome, recommended age 10+).  Second Mondays of each month.
