Author Talk: Rachel Slade - Making It in America

Join us as we welcome back author Rachel Slade to share her latest book Making It in America: The Almost Impossible Quest to Manufacture in the U.S.A. (And How It Got That Way). Books will be available for purchase and signing.

A moving and eye-opening look at the story of manufacturing in America, whether it can ever successfully return to our shores, and why our nation depends on it, told through the experience of one young couple in Maine as they attempt to rebuild a lost industry, ethically. • From the best-selling author of Into the Raging Sea
 

                                                                                                      

Reviews:

“An incisive look at the history and current state of American manufacturing. . . . This galvanizing call for Americans ‘to start making things for themselves’ serves as both a sweeping report on a globalized industry and a practical road map for aspiring small-scale manufacturers. Readers will feel invigorated.”

—Publishers Weekly, starred review

A Publishers Weekly Top 10 Pick in Business and Economics

“A knowledgeable indictment of failed American trade and labor policies, Rachel Slade's timely book, powered by her admirable skills as a storyteller, also provides a much-needed glimpse of a potentially fairer, more equitable future for American workers and consumers.”
—Philip Dray, author of There is Power in a Union: The Epic Story of Labor in America

“At turns rousing and heartbreaking, Making It in America takes the reader on a journey that is both encyclopedic and intimate, through the wastelands of America’s lost manufacturing might, and the jobs, families and communities that were crushed in the process.  As we ride on the shoulders of Ben and Whitney Waxman, who wanted nothing more than to make a sweatshirt ethically in America and pay their workers a fair wage, Slade’s revelatory account brings home the greed and immense global forces bearing down on average Americans, and how a plucky duo battled to retain their integrity.”
— Katherine Eban, author of Bottle of Lies: The Inside Story of the Generic Drug Boom

“Both provides a wealth of background information on the rise and fall of manufacturing in America and tells a story of rebellious entrepreneurship, one full of hope, determination, and the American spirit.”
—Booklist

A Journey through the Roots of American Popular Music

  A Journey through the Roots of American Popular Music with Jon Waterman. 

Jon Waterman presents a program of songs and stories about the origins of the blues, rock and country music. The program, which also features an accompanying slideshow, explores some of the fascinating characters and events that are part of that history as well as the role of music in our lives. The program is the first in the series "Live Music Making History Live" and has been presented to audiences around the country.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Acushnet Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
 
The shows have received enthusiastic reviews from those in attendance. Sarah Swifter, the Director of MAGMA in Gloucester, MA, where the program was presented in November of 2019 writes: “A Journey Through the Roots of American Popular Music” by Jon Waterman is a unique performance experience combining music history, storytelling, and original songs inspired by his research.Waterman successfully transforms fascinating tales from history into an evening-length performance that feels personal, contemporary, and politically relevant. A must see for anyone interested in American history or American music!” - Sarah Swifter, Director, MAGMA – Gloucester, MA
(November, 2019)
 
 
 
Musician and songwriter Jon Waterman has been performing his original songs along with blues, rock and country standards throughout his life. His music is influenced by intriguing characters and stories from history, the roots of the music he enjoys, and the diversity of the human experience. In 2018 Jon combined his love of performing with his enthusiasm for history to create the “Live Music Making History Live” series of programs. He has since presented “A Journey through the Roots of Popular Music,” “History and Legends through Song,” and “The Railroad in Song” to audiences throughout New England. During the pandemic lock down he presented the programs virtually around the country.
Jon's song “Sultana” which tells the story of the Civil War steamboat disaster was selected to be featured at the Sultana museum in Marion, AR and in 2023 he was the recipient of an MCC grant. He has an M.A. in Popular Music History from Prescott College, an M.A. in Psychology from Kaplan University, and a B.A. in History from Northern Arizona University.

Author Talk: Ann B. Parson -The Birds of Dog: An Historical Novel Based on Mostly True Events

Join us as we welcome Ann B. Parson to share her latest book The Birds of Dog: An Historical Novel Based on Mostly True Events. The Birds of Dog opens in the early days of the Boston Society of Natural History and simmers with remarkable lost stories about America's emerging fields of science and its first scientists. Catharine Pickering, a curator's assistant, finds herself increasingly drawn to Nature's treasures, especially birds, and more and more opposed to the "kill-and-collect" methods of hunters. Her cousin, Charles Pickering, is off serving as chief zoologist for the Navy's first voyage of discovery to the South Seas, and her outbound letters tell of scientific findings at home and memorable encounters-with John James Audubon, Junius Brutus Booth, Charles Dickens, and other eminent visitors to Boston. When she meets James Cutting, a brilliant inventor whose discovery leads to the world's first public aquarium, she finds a kindred soul. It's plain to both that certain new technologies are on a destructive course with Nature-guns, in particular, have strayed far from their original purpose.
The Boston Society of Natural History eventually evolved into Boston's Museum of Science.

Ann is a science journalist who specializes in medicine, the environment and technology. Among her previous titles, The Proteus Effect; Stem Cells and Their Promise for Medicine was chosen for Library Journal’s annual list of best science books. Decoding Darkness; The Search for the Genetic Causes of Alzheimer's Disease, co-authored with neuroscientist Rudolph Tanzi, and a previous book on women’s health were widely hailed as leaders among comparable titles. She has written for numerous newspapers and journals, as well as taught science journalism at the graduate level. She lives in South Dartmouth. For more background, please visit www.annparson.com

Summer Concert Series - 60's Thunder

The Summer Concert Series kicks off with 60's Thunder! 

Without a doubt, the 1960’s was the big bang of popular music. No other decade can touch the number of timeless songs we still cherish from the 60’s.  Take a step back in time with New England’s premier 1960’s tribute band, 60’s Thunder.  Be transported to the “decade of change” with a diverse song selection delivered with youthful exuberance, authentic instruments, and sweet harmonies. Dance the night away to tracks by the Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Motown classics and many more. Can you dig it?

The 60’s Thunder are: Ian Motha on bass and vocals, DJ Bean on rhythm guitar and vocals, Matt Borrello on lead guitar and vocals, and Liam Barry on drums and vocals. https://60sthunder.com/

Concerts are held rain or shine.  Join us under the pavilion, or in the community room in the event of rain.This program is supported in part by a grant from the Acushnet Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

The Summer Concert Series continues and the Pearly Baker Band is back!  Bring a blanket or chair and join us under the pavilion. 

The Pearly Baker Band is known for playing Grateful Dead music, but they don’t consider themselves a cover band—they play Dead music their way. Early on, Pearly Baker realized that the Grateful Dead had created an interesting musical template that can be used by others to raise the level of joy in the world, song by song, show by show. The quartet features Tim Richmond on bass guitar, Ken Richards on guitar, Mike Mahoney on guitar and Eric Costa playing keyboard.

Summer Concert Series - The Jethros

The Summer Concert Series returns and the Jethros are back!  Bring a blanket or chair and join us under the pavilion. 

The Jethros realized their common destiny while collaborating in a backup band for mutual friends. Over the years they've become something of a fixture in the folk music scene of New Bedford and nearby places, and were the founders of the New Bedford Folk Festival's Southcoast Stage. Their original songs and unique arrangements are consistently lauded by critics of art, music, and architecture; frequently covered by other local musicians; and captured in three albums of recorded music. 

The family tree goes like this: Gaston Jethro plays bass as though it were seven distinct instruments;  Rufus Jethro sings and plays trumpet, trombone, and uke; Cornelius Jethro plays drums; Homer Jethro sings and plays guitar;  LeRoy Jethro plays trombone; and Boney Jethro whistles and plays fiddle, bones, and other small percussion.  Together they are The Jethros, and they are delighted to present their folk / blues / alt /soul / swing-jazz / bluegrass / funk / country / mariachi / klezmer stylings to one and all.
