Great Decisions—The Middle East: Regional Disorder

By Lawrence G. Potter

As the presidency of Donald J. Trump passes the halfway point, the Middle East remains a region in turmoil. The Trump administration has aligned itself with strongmen in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt, which along with Israel have a common goal of frustrating Iranian expansion. What will be the fallout from policy reversals such as withdrawing from the Iranian nuclear accord and moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem? Does the United States see a path forward in troubled states such as Syria, Yemen, Libya and Iraq? Is the United States headed toward war with Iran?

"It isn't paranoia if it's really happening ... Anna Fox lives alone -- a recluse in her New York City home, drinking too much wine, watching old movies ... and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move next door: a father, a mother, their teenaged son. The perfect family. But when Anna sees something she shouldn't, her world begins to crumble -- and its shocking secrets are laid bare. What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this gripping Hitchcockian thriller, no one and nothing are what they seem."-- Provided by publisher.

Join in a lively discussion and meet others who also enjoy reading.  Copies of the book will be available at Storrs Library or click here to reserve it now.

Author Talk with Jason Fregeau

Sci-Fi author Jason Fregeau will join us to read from his latest story! Jason grew up in Longmeadow and moved away for college. Thirty years later, he returned to town with his wife and son. In the meantime, he explored various careers: systems analyst, sound operator for live theatre, systems manager, dishwasher, call firefighter, consumer law attorney. Yet Jason always wanted to be a writer — no, an author — since his early teens. And now, 47 years later, his dream has come true with his first publication, a science fiction novella titled, The Third Kzin, appearing in the fifteenth anthology of Larry Niven’s vaunted universe, The Man-Kzin Wars. The wait was long, but well worth it.

Great Decisions—Nuclear Negotiations: Back to the Future

by Ronald J. Bee

Nuclear weapons have not gone away, and the Trump administration has brought a new urgency, if not a new approach, to dealing with them.  The President has met with Vladimir Putin as the New Start Treaty with Russia comes up for renewal in 2021, the first presidential summit ever with Kim Jong-un occurred to discuss denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, and President Trump has decertified the Obama nuclear deal with Iran.  To what degree should past nuclear talks guide future U.S. nuclear arms control negotiations?  Can the art of the deal apply to stabilizing our nuclear future?

Fish, fish and more fish: A talk about fish migration with the Connecticut River Conservancy

When the shadbush blooms each spring the Connecticut River fills with hundreds of thousands of fish on their migration from the ocean.  This entertaining, informative, and visual presentation will focus on life-histories of fish species that journey upstream, where they have been, why they are here and how they are important to the health of our river ecosystems. Led by Liz Austin, M.S., Ed.D., with a degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Conservation, CRC Trustee and long-time Robert Barrett Fishway guide. Additional CRC staff and trustees will be present to talk about our rivers.

Tech Talk with Thomas Sullivan: 3D Printing & Raised Relief Maps

Thomas Sullivan, an engineer at General Dynamics, an instructor at Berkshire Community College, and hobbyist will visit Storrs Library and present the science and process behind creating Raised Relief Maps and 3D Printing.

3D printers have become ubiquitous in recent years. They can create a three-dimensional object from a numerical description. This means that anyone with the proper tools and access to a 3D printer can make any ordinary object such as a keychain, crescent wrench or flower pot. With the right data, unusual objects can also be created. In this talk, find out how data collected by RADAR from space or LASERs from aircraft can be used to create raised relief maps of the earth. It’s simpler than it sounds. Come learn how mathematics and software is used to turn raw data into unique 3D printable objects. Please register!

Great Decisions—The Rise of Populism in Europe

By James Kirchick

Mass migration, and the problems associated with it, have directly abetted the rise of populist parties in Europe. Opposition to immigration was the prime driver of support for Brexit, it brought a far-right party to the German Bundestag for the first time since the 1950s, and propelled Marine Le Pen to win a third of the vote in the French presidential election. In addition to calling for stronger borders, however, these parties are invariably illiberal, anti-American, anti-NATO and pro-Kremlin, making their rise a matter of serious concern for the national security interests of the United States.

Great Decisions—Decoding U.S.-China Trade

By Jeremy Haft

Though arguably the most advanced economy in the world, the United States still uses centuries-old numbers to measure trade.  These antique numbers mangle understanding of the U.S.-China trade relationship, shrinking America’s true economic size and competitiveness, while swelling China’s.  Bad numbers give rise to bad policies that ultimately kill U.S. jobs and cede market share to China.  What other tools can the United States employ to counter China’s unfair trade practices?  There are several available, yet they remain mostly unused.

Massachusetts in the Woman Suffrage Movement

Longmeadow Historical Society Longmeadow Historical Society and Storrs Library present author Barbara Berenson. Few know Massachusetts was at the center of the revolutionary struggle for woman suffrage. A battle waged over historical memory obscured the state’s role—until now.  Author Barbara Berenson gives the state's revolutionary reformers the attention they deserve in this compelling and engaging story.  "In her accessible history, Berenson focuses her spotlight on Bay State women who catalyzed the effort to gain women's right to vote on a local and national level... The book makes a case for determination, perseverance, and patience to bring about necessary change." Boston Globe, 2018
