Virtual : The State of the Coast presented by The Trustees

By 2050, more than 3,500 structures on Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket may be impacted by storm flooding, and nearly 800 structures lost to erosion, according to The Trustees 2nd annual State of the Coast report.

“The impacts of flooding and erosion on these beloved Islands will affect thousands who live and work there, and the thousands more who visit each summer,” says Tom O’Shea, Trustees Managing Director of Resources and Planning. “To put this into perspective: today’s storm is tomorrow’s high tide. The storm surge from Winter Storm Riley in March 2018 produced a water level on Martha’s Vineyard that is roughly equivalent to the average height of the highest tide projected for 2050.”

Join The Trustees of Reservations and the public libraries in Vineyard Haven and Edgartown on September 27 (5:30-6:30pm) to hear from the lead author of the second annual “State of the Coast” report. The report details many of the coastal challenges being faced by communities on Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Gosnold, as well as potential adaptation methods for the future. Join the discussion to ask questions and see the latest modeling and data forecasts for 2050.

The 44-page report, underwritten by ReMain Nantucket, highlights the climate change-driven impacts of sea level rise and storm flooding faced by Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and Gosnold (Elizabeth Islands). These include impacts to beaches, salt marsh, developed areas like harbors and business districts, coastal banks, and habitats in Aquinnah, Chilmark, Edgartown, Gosnold, Nantucket, Oak Bluffs, Tisbury, and West Tisbury.

This important TToR program is presented in collaboration with the Edgartown and VH libraries. Please register for this event at https://thetrustees.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ojdkJQuZSwq_i0cY1tr_xg

Virtual : In the Company of Poets: Cleaveland House Poets Anthology 2021
'In the Company of Poets: Cleaveland House Poets Anthology 2021' is the latest anthology from the Cleaveland House Poets (CHP).
CHP is considered the longest continuously running poetry group in New England, begun by Dionis Coffin Riggs in 1963 in the parlor of her family home, located in West Tisbury on the Island of Martha's Vineyard. The group continues to meet bi-weekly all year.
 
The anthology includes 15 poet members of CHP. One poet, included in the volume, Andrea B. Quigley, passed away in 2017. Also there are present members who were not able to participate during the pandemic, but they and past members are all listed in the "Roster of Poets." The book allots each poet seven pages, so depending on the length of the poems submitted the number of poems printed varies from poet to poet.
 
Each poet has a distinct voice and the one thing all poets share is being home on Martha's Vineyard. Subjects range widely from nature and love to current events and humor. The support each poet enjoys being a part of the group has been instrumental in developing both individual poems and  their unique voice.
 
Cleaveland House Poets are thankful for the support from Cleaveland House owner/writer Cynthia Riggs,  Island libraries, arts organizations and local newspapers which have supported poetry and allow poets to share their work both in print and aloud readings.
Books will be available soon at Bunch of Grapes, Cronigs, Edgartown Books and Featherstone Center for the Arts.

Virtual: 'Cocktails With a Curator' with Xavier F. Salomon

Internationally recognized as a premier museum and research center, the Frick has created short visits of which we will visit two; 'Riesener, Commode and Secrétaire' and Hans Holbein's 'Sir Thomas More' with a short intermission separating the two for discussion.

Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator Xavier F. Salomon will guide our virtual visit of two pieces of furniture at the Frick made by Jean-Henri Riesener, a commode and secrétaire, which were made for the Queen of France, Marie-Antoinette. Sometimes overlooked by visitors, Xavier encourages us to take a closer look at this exquisite commode and secrétaire set. The paired cocktail is the Kir Royale.

The second piece we will explore with Xavier will be Hans Holbein’s “Sir Thomas More”, one of the Frick’s most beloved paintings. Xavier will have us consider More's relationship to humanist circles and the role of "friendship portraits" in making the absent present. In the words of More's devoted friend, Desiderius Erasmus, “life without a friend is no life." As a nod to the turbulent times of Tudor England, Xavier pairs this episode with a Bloody Mary.

 The Frick is known for its distinguished Old Master paintings and outstanding examples of European sculpture and decorative arts.Enjoy all sixty-five episodes of the Frick’s critically acclaimed, award-winning 2020–21 series "Cocktails with a Curator." In each episode, a Frick curator offers insights on a work of art in the collection with a complementary cocktail.Audiences under 21 are encouraged to join with a non-alcoholic drink.

 To see these objects in detail, please visit The Frick's website: https://collections.frick.org/objects... https://collections.frick.org/objects...

Virtual programs have been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

In Lead Like A Pro, Dr. Matthew Raidbard draws on over a decade spent as a college basketball coach and senior level athletics administrator, as well as his own original research into what leadership styles and behaviors help athletic coaches be successful. This practical, yet informative book provides coaches with the resources to transform their leadership practice and reach their full potential. 

Athletic coaches today are being asked to take on more responsibilities outside of traditional X’s & O’s, but don’t necessarily have the leadership tools to help them take on this outsized challenge. Whether you are a volunteer coaching your child’s team, a part-time high school coach who’s also a teacher, or a full-time college or professional coach, this book will teach you new ways to enhance your leadership style and become a better coach for your athletes and team.

After obtaining his Bachelor’s degree in history and classical studies from Indiana University, Matthew decided to pursue my dream of being a college basketball coach. His first college basketball coaching job was at Western New Mexico University, where in addition to coaching he completed his Master’s degree in Educational Leadership. After leaving Western New Mexico I served as a men’s basketball coach at Dartmouth College, Florida Gulf Coast University, and Chicago State University. While working at Chicago State he completed his Doctorate in Educational Leadership, with his dissertation focusing on determining the best leadership style and behaviors for athletic coaches to practice. From his dissertation research, he realized that coaches at all levels of sports were being asked to take on increased leadership responsibilities for their athletes and team without sufficient opportunities to receive leadership education and training. Research also uncovered that a significant gap existed between the leadership style and behaviors that athletic coaches thought they were practicing and the leadership style and behaviors they were actually practicing. These findings were the inspiration for “Lead Like A Pro,” where he helps inform coaches about leadership practice, and teaches them how to align their perceived and actual leadership styles and behaviors, allowing them to become more intentional and effective leaders. During Matthew's last two years at Chicago State he transitioned into athletics administration, and since that time has worked at the University of Northern Colorado, before moving into his current role as the Executive Senior Associate Athletic Director for Administration, Compliance, and Student-Athlete Success at the University of Hartford.

Online: If the Broom Fits...Halloween and the Herstory of Witches

How did the benevolent image of a wise woman transform into the malevolent figure of the witch we know today?

Witches are one of the most traditional as well as mysterious entities we associate with Halloween. When you think of a witch, it's easy to conjure up an image of an old, ugly, hook-nosed woman, stirring up a steaming potion that is brewing away inside a cauldron. Of course her usual sidekick, the proverbial black cat, is probably not far away

Have you ever wondered, especially on Halloween, why witches are depicted as riding on brooms through the nighttime sky? (It's a story you may find difficult explaining to the kids!)

You're never going to look at sweeping the same way again...

Offered in conjunction with the Chilmark Public Library. Please contact tthorpe@clamsnet.org or amcdonough@clamsnet.org for meeting access link.

Virtual : What's It Worth?

Mike Ivankovich has been involved in some phase of the Auction, Antiques and Collectibles business for more than 40 years. He is a frequent lecturer and has spoken before groups too numerous to list. He has authored more than 20 books and eBooks in his areas of specialty, has written articles and columns for most major national trade papers, has appeared on various radio and television programs, is frequently consulted by antique columnists from throughout the country, and has served as a contributing advisor within his specialty areas to all major Antiques & Collectibles Price Guides.

Mike will begin with a 20-minute discussion on “10 Factors That Will Always Impact the Value of Your Treasures”.He will then immediately transition to the appraisal portion of the program, evaluating each attendee’s treasures, one-by-one. Throughout the program Mike will be sharing many Buying & Selling Tips & Strategies.  Proper camera positioning will be important because if Mike can’t see the item, he won’t be able to appraise it.Since he can’t actually see the item in person, he’ll probably ask a few questions about markings, condition, etc. Participants should have one back-up item for Mike to appraise. That way if he can’t virtually appraise the primary item, he can appraise the back-up item,

Mike is a Home Downsizing Specialist based in Doylestown (Bucks County) PA. His primary role is to guide clients through the entire Home Downsizing process, helping them understand the value of their personal property assets, helping them determine whether they have any valuable hidden treasures, and helping them dispose of their excess personal property assets for the greatest amount of cash, with the least amount of work, in the shortest amount of time. His book, Home Downsizing in Four Easy Steps, can be found on Amazon.com.

His Appraisal and Home Downsizing work led to the start of his "What's It Worth? Ask Mike the Appraiser" Radio Show in 2014. Since that time Mike has hosted more than 350 shows with wide-ranging topics and guests from around the country. His show can be heard Friday mornings from 9:30-10:30 AM (Eastern time) on WBCB 1490 AM in Philadelphia PA, or live on the internet at: www.WBCB1490.com

The first 25 people that sign up for this fun and potentially lucritive program can have an item appraised. 'What's It Worth' is brought to you by the Edgartown, Chilmark, Vineyard Haven and West Tisbury libraries. We expect the program to last 2.0. hours. Sign up at edgartownlibrary.org

Virtual : Rare Book Specialist Ken Gloss

Kenneth Gloss, proprietor of the internationally known Brattle Book Shop in Boston’s Downtown Crossing section, will give a virtual presentation via Zoom on TuesdayNovember 96:00 pm, for the Vineyard Haven Public Library, Vineyard Haven, MA. Ken will discuss the value of old and rare books.

Ken, a rare book specialist and appraiser who is frequently seen on national TV, will talk in part about the history of his historic bookshop (
www.brattlebookshop.com/about), which goes back to circa 1825. He is a second-generation owner.

Ken will talk about and show some of his favorite finds and describe some of the joys of the "hunt," as well as explain what makes a book go up in value. He has many fascinating anecdotes to share as well as guidelines for what to look for when starting a collection. There is also a Q&A session before the conclusion of his talk.
 Following the talk and question-and-answer session, Ken will give free verbal appraisals of books participants have on hand or will do so at his shop in Boston at a later scheduled date.

To participate in the Zoom session, the 
Library asks that all interested parties visit https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZUtc-iorzsjEtIDiROXyMLCLIYNmhhIPtuo.


Yankee Magazine Editor's Choice Award for Best of New England, the Brattle Book Shop is one of America’s oldest and largest antiquarian bookstores. 2021 is the 72nd year of Gloss family ownership. Kenneth Gloss succeeded his late father, George Gloss, a well-known figure both in Boston and national antiquarian circles. He had worked in the store since childhood and chose to go into the book business rather than pursue a doctorate in chemistry. He became the sole proprietor upon his father's death in 1985. "I found that books were in my blood and that I would never be really happy if I abandoned the business."

Among the many organizations in which Kenneth Gloss is a member are the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America, the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, the New England Antiquarian Booksellers of America, the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Antiquarian Booksellers Association, the Committee for the Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair and the Boston Society. He also is a Fellow of the Massachusetts Historical Society as well as serving on the Board of Overseers of the USS Constitution Museum.

The Brattle Book Shop is proud to have been a contributor to the WGBH Annual Auction each year that the station has held this fund drive. Ken has appeared on national and local TV numerous times over the years and has been a popular guest on WBZ Radio as well as other radio, TV, and cable stations numerous times. His bylined articles continue to appear in various antique journals and in print and online consumer publications. The Brattle Book Shop is also the recipient of several “Best of Boston” awards in the categories of Best Book Shop or Best Antiquarian Book Shop.  In addition, it has been included in a list as one of North America’s best bookstores.

Virtual : MV Haiku Club; Winter Solstice

Welcome to the MV Haiku Club, zoom-based sessions led by Caroline Joy Adams. As part of the MV Haiku Club, you will be encouraged to write Haiku that ranges from the serious to the sublime, to the most imaginative and whimsical – and everything in between.  No matter what you come up with, you are sure to be surprised and delighted by the direction your words will take you, whether you are new to writing, or have been a serious writer for years. The MV Haiku Club is also a great way to connect with others who wish to ignite their creative energies easily and freely, in a fun, intriguing, and expressive way. Tonight's theme will be 'winter solstice'.

Caroline Joy Adams is an author of five published books, including The Power to Write: Seven Keys to Discover Your Writer Within. Her newest title, Have Fun with Haiku, celebrated its official publication date on December 11, 2020 (which was International Mountain Day – a perfect tie-in, as Haiku is about taking a moment to shift into a new, higher perspective, which mountains so perfectly symbolize).

Caroline Joy Adams has been a college professor of Writing and Humanities for many years, in both the Southwest and in New England, and has also taught hundreds of creative writing workshops, most recently in Maui, Hawaii.  She loves to foster creative community in every way that she can, and in the fall of 2019, led a successful series of workshops in Newport, RI, as well as for the Woods Hole Public Library, and also taught an inspiring, well-attended Memoir Workshop at the Vineyard Haven Library.

The MV Haiku Club is also a great way to connect with others who wish to ignite their creative energies easily and freely, in a fun, intriguing, and expressive way. Tonight's theme will be 'winter solstice'.

Caroline Joy Adams is an author of five published books, including The Power to Write: Seven Keys to Discover Your Writer Within. Her newest title, Have Fun with Haiku, celebrated its official publication date on December 11, 2020 (which was International Mountain Day – a perfect tie-in, as Haiku is about taking a moment to shift into a new, higher perspective, which mountains so perfectly symbolize).

Caroline Joy Adams has been a college professor of Writing and Humanities for many years, in both the Southwest and in New England, and has also taught hundreds of creative writing workshops, most recently in Maui, Hawaii.  She loves to foster creative community in every way that she can, and in the fall of 2019, led a successful series of workshops in Newport, RI, as well as for the Woods Hole Public Library, and also taught an inspiring, well-attended Memoir Workshop at the Vineyard Haven Library.
