TEWKSBURY JOB SEEKERS NETWORK: How I Survived Job Loss, One Breath At A Time with Clare Siska

Job loss can have a cascading impact on one’s life. Loss of income is often compounded by a diminished sense of identity or self-worth; lost connections; strains on relationships; changes in lifestyle; threats to financial security; decreased physical and mental health; increased personal and family stress; depression; anxiety; and even higher mortality risk. Dismissal from work ranks in the top 10 Stressful Life Events on the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale. This presentation acknowledges the deep despair and disempowerment that can accompany the loss of a job, and suggests strategies for coping and renewal, drawn from the presenter’s personal experience. Led by Clarke Siska, who spent much of her career in publication and educational technology.  In April 2014, Clare was laid off from her longstanding corporate position and found herself in search of her authentic self. She is now the proud owner of Acton Critter Sitters, an award-winning pet sitting business serving Acton and surroundings towns. Clare lives in Acton with her own hree dogs and many other visiting critters.

The Tewksbury Job Seekers Network meets every Monday at 2pm at the library. The group is open to anyone who is unemployed, underemployed, or looking to change careers. Attendees do NOT need to be residents of Tewksbury. Limited to 30 seats. There will be time for networking after each presentation. Dress is business casual. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

OUTDOOR CONCERT SERIES: Too Human

Enjoy a jazz concert from Too Human.  Ellen Schwartz and Roger Bruno will perform jazz standards from the Great American Songbook, along with jazzy “bluesy” originals.

Whether performing breezy, jazzy, toe-tapping swing; a bluesy, heartfelt ballad; or a familiar standard, Too Human will move you with their music. With vocals, guitar, percussion and upright bass, they have a jazzy / bluesy feel with a lot of heart. Their original songs will touch you in so many ways. And the standards take on a life of their own with a fresh interpretation. Ellen's earthy voice combines perfectly with Roger's unusual percussion style and sweet vocals. Their songs have been recorded by a broad spectrum of artists, including Cher. 

Concert to take place on the library's back lawn. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets or chairs. In case of inclement weather, concert will take place in the library’s Meeting Room.

TEWKSBURY JOB SEEKERS NETWORK: How To Differentiate Yourself – It’s You They Buy! with Mark Altman

How do you make sure you are the one that employers respond to? In this presentation, you'll learn how you present yourself to others and how others see you. The characteristics that make you stand out from your peers represent how you are seen, heard and understood. By learning how to differentiate yourself, you will be able to share what makes you and your past experience(s) unique. It’s not what you do, but why you do it.  Your values, purpose, and stories you share all directly impact how you relate to others. Become memorable, confident and comfortable through telling your story proactively in an interactive workshop. Led by Mark Altman, founder of MindsetGo, a company that coaches people to be more confident and better skilled communicators. Altman has more than two decades of experience teaching sales, public speaking and engagement skills supporting a diverse group of professionals representing various industries. Prior to founding MindsetGo, Mark Altman & Associates (MA&A) was started in 2001. He grew and transformed that business to being recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the nation in 2010 and 2011. 

The Tewksbury Job Seekers Network meets every Monday at 2pm at the library. The group is open to anyone who is unemployed, underemployed, or looking to change careers. Attendees do NOT need to be residents of Tewksbury. Limited to 30 seats. There will be time for networking after each presentation. Dress is business casual. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

AUTHOR VISIT: Solving The Mystery Of America's Worst Modern Shipping Disaster with Rachel Slade

Author Rachel Slade will discuss her new book, "Into The Raging Sea: Thirty-Three Mariners, One Megastorm, and the Sinking of El Faro."

About The BookOn October 1, 2015, Hurricane Joaquin barreled into the Bermuda Triangle and swallowed the container ship El Faro whole, resulting in the worst American shipping disaster in thirty-five years. No one could fathom how a vessel equipped with satellite communications, a sophisticated navigation system, and cutting-edge weather forecasting could suddenly vanish—until now. Relying on hundreds of exclusive interviews with family members and maritime experts, as well as the words of the crew members themselves—whose conversations were captured by the ship’s data recorder—journalist Rachel Slade unravels the mystery of the sinking of El Faro. 

About The Author: Rachel Slade is a Boston-based journalist, writer, and editor. She was a staff writer at Boston magazine for ten years, and her writing earned her a City and Regional Magazine Award in civic journalism. 

Doors to open by 6:45pm.  Q&A and book signing to follow the event for those interested. Limited to 50 seats. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library. This program is a part of the library's '100 Authors In 2018' initiative to host 100 local authors in 1 year.

OUTDOOR LIVING HISTORY SERIES: An Evening with James Madison

Actor Bil Lewis will perform his one-man show, "James Madison & the Founding of the United States." 

About The Show: With the assistance of audience members reading appropriate dramatic quotations from Patrick Henry, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, Dolly Madison, etc., James Madison will lead investigations into events from the House of Burgesses, the Constitutional Convention, the “Dinner Party,” etc., that marked the coming of age of the United States. More than a mere recitation of dates and facts, this will be an exploration the underlying reasons that prompted them to act as they did. Many of the issues they confronted then continue to be relevant today:

  • Should we be one Country?
  • What debts should be paid?
  • Who gets the power of Taxation?
  • Should a Private Bank issue money?
  • Should we be agrarian? Or a center of manufacturing?
  • How do we limit the influence of Great Corporations on our public life?
  • How can we protect the Common Man from the rapaciousness of the Rich and Powerful?
  • How do we eliminate Slavery?
  • How do we make real the “Spirit of ’76?” So we can truly say that “All Men are Created Equal.” 

About Bil: Bil Lewis is a Computer Scientist who has taught at Stanford and Tufts Universities. He is also a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who taught High School in Kenya and later in Palo Alto and Somerville. He is a Past District Governor for Toastmasters, a small businessman, and an Eagle Scout. Bil has presented as James Madison in many settings, including the National Archives, the Shirley-Eustis House, the offices of Congress, and the Massachusetts Statehouse. He has presented formal courses to numerous High School and College classes, along with dozens of civic clubs. 

Performance to take place on the library's back lawn. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets or chairs. In case of inclement weather, concert will take place in the library’s first-floor Fairgrieve Wing. Look for the overflow parking signs if the main parking lot fills up. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

Did you know most native bees can't sting humans?  Do you appreciate butterflies and birds visiting your yard?  Pollinators all, these natives need only food, water, and shelter in order to become regular visitors.  If you have containers, flower boxes, or a garden, you already have almost everything you need to attract these beautiful neighbors to your yard.

OUTDOOR LIVING HISTORY SERIES: An Evening with Robin Williams

Actor Roger Kabler will perform his one-man show, "A Tribute To Robin Williams." 

About The Show: Meet America’s premiere Robin Williams tribute artist, Roger Kabler. You will feel you are in the presence of one of the funniest and most heralded comedic icons of the 21st century.  Robin was not only a wonderful actor and stand-up comedian, but a philosopher and humanitarian.  The show you will see is funny, poignant and sometimes just a wild ride through the mind of a lovable madman.  

About Roger: Roger Kabler is a true renaissance man. Along with being one of the finest comedy impressionists in the country, he is a talented actor and portrait artist. He served as the Zima spokesman in national television commercials. He was a regular on the last Carol Burnett series in 1991. Roger also starred in his own NBC sitcom, "Rhythm and Blues." He wrote, produced and starred in the award-winning movie "Who The Hell Is Bobby Roos?" and has recently played to sold out Las Vegas showrooms. Variety Magazine calls him "an astounding impressionist." 

Performance to take place on the library's back lawn. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets or chairs. In case of inclement weather, concert will take place in the library’s first-floor Fairgrieve Wing. Look for the overflow parking signs if the main parking lot fills up. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

Evening Book Group Meeting: The Library at the Edge of the World by Felicity Hayes-McCoy

The library's Evening Book Group is reading The Library at the Edge of the World by Felicity Hayes-McCoy this month. Books and discussion guides are available at the Front Desk. New readers and new points of view are always welcome! No registration required.

About The Book: In the bestselling tradition of Fannie Flagg and Jenny Colgan comes Felicity Hayes-McCoy’s U.S. debut about a local librarian who must find a way to rebuild her community and her own life in this touching, enchanting novel set on Ireland’s stunning West Coast.

As she drives her mobile library van between villages of Ireland’s West Coast, Hanna Casey tries not to think about a lot of things. Like the sophisticated lifestyle she abandoned after finding her English barrister husband in bed with another woman. Or that she’s back in Lissbeg, the rural Irish town she walked away from in her teens, living in the back bedroom of her overbearing mother’s retirement bungalow. Or, worse yet, her nagging fear that, as the local librarian and a prominent figure in the community, her failed marriage and ignominious return have made her a focus of gossip. 

With her teenage daughter, Jazz, off traveling the world and her relationship with her own mother growing increasingly tense, Hanna is determined to reclaim her independence by restoring a derelict cottage left to her by her great-aunt. But when the threatened closure of the Lissbeg Library puts her personal plans in jeopardy, Hanna finds herself leading a battle to restore the heart and soul of the Finfarran Peninsula’s fragmented community. And she’s about to discover that the neighbors she’d always kept at a distance have come to mean more to her than she ever could have imagined. 

Told with heart and abundant charm, The Library at the Edge of the World is a joyous story about the meaning of home and the importance of finding a place where you truly belong.
