6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Onlilne: 'The Bull' with author Dr Micheal Fine

A bull gets loose in Tennessee. A black sergeant stops the murder of a Trump supporter in
North Carolina. The third husband of a nurse in Pawtucket wins the lottery. A schizophrenic woman who
lives on Kennedy Plaza discovers that Social Security thinks she is dead. The 19-year-old Latina caretaker of a
rich old man loses her mother to COVID-19. A horse that represents the hopes and dreams of a family in India falls
asleep, and then awakens.

Ten stories. People whose lives are transformed. People who struggle and survive, who see their world through lost hopes, inappropriate loves, and irrational dreams. Ten stories, each one a new way to listen, see, feel and dream. 

Dr Michael Fine is a writer, community organizer, family physician, public health official and author of Health Care Revolt: How to Organize, Build a Health Care System, and Resuscitate Democracy – All at the Same Time and Abundance, a romantic thriller set in Rhode Island and in Liberia in the aftermath of the Liberian Civil Wars of 1989-2020.

Virtual : Advance Care Planning with Healthy Aging MV

Healthy Aging Martha's VIneyard invites you to attend an informational Zoom session, which we hope will empower you to have “the conversation” with those who care about you. Learn how to speak openly about this delicate topic, so that you may do so with loved ones, and your physician. You will be provided with a packet of resources, including advance directives to fill out when ready. You will also learn who needs a copy of those forms so they are available when needed. Please email mkeating@edgartown-ma.us to register.

Sharing your wishes for end-of-life care can bring you closer to the people you love. It’s critically important.
We know that no guide and no single conversation can cover all the decisions that you and your family
may face. What a conversation can do is provide a shared understanding of what matters most to you
and your loved ones. This can make it easier to make decisions when the time comes.
Join the conversation to gather the toolkit!

Fourth in a series of 4 presentations on how creatures

use their senses underwater. Tonight's presentation focuses

might possess to navigate their habitat.

Jelle AtemeDr Atema is a marine biologist, and an emeritus Professor of Biology at Boston University,a Research Fellow for the Department of Cognitive & Neural Systems, an Adjunct Scientist for the WHOI and an Adjunct Scientist for the Marine Biological Laboratory. The labs he works out of in Boston University and Woods Hole focus on three seemingly disparate research areas: chemical ecology of lobsters, navigation in sharks, and dispersal in larval reef fishes.

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Virtual : MV Haiku Club

Welcome to the MV Haiku Club, which will start September 29th, with four zoom-based sessions led by Caroline Joy Adams, author of five published books, including The Power to Write: Seven Keys to Discover Your Writer Within. Her newest title, Have Fun with Haiku, will celebrate its official publication date on December 11, 2020 (which happens to be 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, this winter.  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. 

She loves writing in all its many forms, and her approach to Haiku is as a short form of poetic writing that has many variations and flexible guidelines, rather than strict rules or adherence to one rigid traditional form.  As part of the MV Haiku Club, then, 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.  And 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 will also be a great way to connect with others who wish to ignite their creative energies easily and freely, too, in a fun, intriguing, and expressive way.

These zoom-based sessions, sponsored by the Vineyard Haven Public Library, will be held on Tuesday evenings, including September 29, October 27, November 24, and December 22, from 6:00 -7:30 p.m. Each session will have a specific theme, and participants will receive a helpful, explanatory PDF file ahead of time with suggested reading and writing assignments for the week’s meeting.

Online: 'A Guard Dog Named Honey'

Join our family read-along! West Tisbury and the VHPL join up for a discussion of Denise Orenstein's book 'A Guard Dog Named Honey'

where author Ms Orenstein will take part. The schedule is to read the first half of the book and be prepared for

a discussion and to share your thoughts on December 28th (via Zoom) at 2PM.

The second half of the book will be discussed on December 30th along with a creative writing component led by Ms Orenstein.

'A Guard Dog Named Honey' tells the story of Bean and her determination to get her 16-year-old brother, Willis, out of jail. When her single mother, Nell, says they don’t have enough to bail him out, the girl —whose worries bring on hives and vertigo—decides to earn the money herself. Heading to the wealthy section of Rock Haven, the Massachusetts island where she’s lived her whole life, she looks for a summer family to hire her for odd jobs. When no one bites, Bean sets her sights on Phoebe, a wealthy girl who is staying for the summer with her nanny and dog, Honey, while her parents tour Europe. When Phoebe discloses that Honey, an Italian Neapolitan mastiff, is a purebred worth $3,000, Bean persuades the child, whose parents consistently let her down, to sell the dog. Bean finds

 a shady buyer, and a related mystery, just as Honey adopts three baby kittens, nursing them and carrying them in her jowls. Bean’s believable desperation to help her brother is poignant in this empathic story featuring well-wrought characters who are trying their very best.  

 

Scholastic publishing has graciously donated limited copies of 'A Guard Dog Named Honey' that are available at both the WT and VH libraries. They are free and yours to keep. Please reserve your copy

Virtual : Martha's Vineyard Burning

Island son Dave Duarte and his wife Ginger Martin-Duarte present their colaboration 'Martha's Vineyard Burning: A Tragicomedy Memoir of Drugs, Sex & Arson'. a coming-of-age story of David Duarte, a second-generation son of Martha's Vineyard who also descends from Portuguese whalers first arriving in the area in the 1800s. Along with coauthor Ginger Martin, Duarte chronicles the pitfalls and obstacles he overcame without the help of a male mentor. Humans have the ability to do horrible things to fellow humans, but Martha's Vineyard Burning reminds readers that we're never alone, no matter how much we may feel we are, in times of deep pain. Eventually, it will all turn out for the best, a lesson Duarte can see clearly now, after seventy-nine years on one of the most unique islands in the world. Please email vhpl_programs@clamsnet.org or amcdonough@clamsnet.org for meeting access link.

She loves writing in all its many forms, and her approach to Haiku is as a short form of poetic writing that has many variations and flexible guidelines, rather than strict rules or adherence to one rigid traditional form.  As part of the MV Haiku Club, then, 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.  And 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 will also be a great way to connect with others who wish to ignite their creative energies easily and freely, too, in a fun, intriguing, and expressive way.

These zoom-based sessions, sponsored by the Vineyard Haven Public Library, will be held on Tuesday evenings, including September 29, October 27, November 24, and December 22, from 6:00 -7:30 p.m. Each session will have a specific theme, and participants will receive a helpful, explanatory PDF file ahead of time with suggested reading and writing assignments for the week’s meeting.
