Virtual: : VOICES OF VINEYARD WOMEN with oral history curator Linsey Lee

For Women’s History Month, The Chilmark and Vineyard Haven libraries present the extraordinary Linsey Lee as she shares videos presenting the voices, images and stories of some of the remarkable Vineyard women from many eras, ages, diverse ethnic backgrounds and perspectives.

Relying on their community and on their own ingenuity, Vineyard women have traditionally thrived and taken roles of leadership on what was an often and can still seem so today, an isolated island. During the era of whaling and of coastal schooner trade when husbands and sons were off sailing the seas for years at a time; women on the Vineyard managed businesses and finances, as well as the traditional responsibilities of caring for family and children. World Wars, the Depression and conflicts overseas continued the need for women to be resilient and resourceful. Since then, Vineyard women have made their mark as doctors, nurses, racial justice activists, business leaders, homemakers, writers, soldiers, teachers, sailors, politicians, actresses. With all its challenges, living on this Island inculcates strength of character as well as a creativity of spirit.

Linsey Lee is the oral history Curator at the Martha’s Vineyard Museum. She has been conducting oral history interviews with people of the Vineyard for over thirty years. She is the author of Vineyard Voices – Words, Faces and Voices of Island People (1998), More Vineyard Voices (2005), Those Who Serve – Martha’s Vineyard and WWII (2010), Vineyard Voices Three (2019) and Edible Wild Plants of Martha’s Vineyard (1976/1998).

Virtual : Advance Care Planning with Healthy Aging MV

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!

Register in advance for this meeting:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Online: Booby-trapped: The Bra in America

Before the bra was invented, corsets lifted breasts to artificial heights—but they pushed from below instead of lifting from above. In 1913, using two pocket handkerchiefs and some pink ribbon, socialite Mary Phelps Jacob created the “backless brassiere,” and became the first patent recipient for the modern bra. From Jacob’s invention, to the bullet bra of the 40s, to modern-day pillow cup push-up plunge bras, our boobs have been cinched, flattened down, and lifted up.

You can discover a lot about women in history by how much cleavage was showing, and the era’s most desirable breast shape. While it can be argued that a bra is a necessity—­­not an accessory—one of the best feelings at the end of the day is to release ourselves. One thing’s for certain: the American Woman is still waiting for her ideal brassiere!

Join Ehris and Velya for an uplifting look at the history of the bra in America! Co-hosted with the Chilmark Public Library. Please contact amcdnough@clamsnet.org or tthorpe@clamsnet.org for meeting access.

Virtual : MV Haiku Club

Welcome to the MV Haiku Club, 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, 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, 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, March 30th Springtime Musings and April 27th New Possibilities  from 6:00 -7:30 p.m. 

For poetry month, the Island libraries are colaborating to present a viewing of  'Beyond the Mask', a film about Paul Laurence Dunbar, on April 10 at 6 PM. Discussion with the director will follow via Zoom. Paul Laurence Dunbar was born on June 27, 1872 to freed slaves from Kentucky. He became one of the first influential Black poets in American literature. Please contact tthrope@clamsnet.org or amcdonough@clamsnet.org to register for this exciting event.

we get out of the poems when shared and discussed. No qualifications, except a love of poetry. Jay Sigler will present poems by Richard Wilbur.

Virtual : Beyond the Mask

The VHPL in conjunction with other Vineyard libraries will screen  'Beyond the Mask', a documentary on Paul Laurence Dunbar, on April 10 at 6 PM. Discussion with the director to follow. 

Dunbar’s story strongly reflects the African American experience around the turn of the century. The man abolitionist Frederick Douglass called “the most promising young colored man in America” wrote widely published essays critical of Jim Crow laws, lynching and what was commonly called “The Negro Problem.” To earn a living, however, he also wrote poems and short stories in “Plantation dialect” and contributed lyrics for Broadway musicals that bordered on blackface minstrelsy.

Please contact tthorpe@clamsnet.org or amcdonough@clamsnet.org for access.

Sharing your wishes for end-of-life care can bring you closer to the people you love. It’s critically important.

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!

Virtual : MV Haiku Club

Welcome to the MV Haiku Club, 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, 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, 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 evening, April 27th New Possibilities  from 6:00 -7:30 p.m.

Online: UBoats So Close to Home with Michael Tougais

U-Boats So Close to Home

 An American Family’s World War II Story of Survival and the U-boat that Attacked Them

Michael J. Tougias, NY Times bestselling author and co-author of 24 books, is offering a new, dramatic presentation based on his co-authored book So Close to Home (Pegasus Books, May 2016). Tougias will use slides of the attack, the survivors, and the rescue to make this “an edge-of-your seat” multi-media program.   Tougias also had access to the U-boat commander Erich Wurdemann’s War Diary, and the presentation will include a discussion of the challenges faced aboard the sub, and some of the daring raids the commander made off the coast of America.

SO CLOSE TO HOME  is a survival story and history book rolled into one, similar to Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbroken.  “I enjoy doing these programs,” says Tougias, “It’s like watching a movie with the author giving behind-the-scenes details.” A book signing will follow the program, and the presentation is suitable for all ages.

Please contaact tthorpe@clamsnet.org or amcdonough@clamsnet.org for Zoom access to this exciting program!

Virtual : Fay Wray and Robert Riskin: A Hollywood Memoir by Victoria Riskin

A love story, memoir, and dual biography of two of Hollywood’s most famous figures, this book explores the fascinating lives of two exceptionally talented people at the center of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Fay Wray (1907–2004) enjoyed a long, sterling career, but achieved cinematic immortality for her role in King Kong (1933). Robert Riskin (1897–1955) was an Academy Award-winning writer and producer whose collaboration with Frank Capra yielded films such as It Happened One Night (1934) and Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936), among many others. In this moving and masterful work, Wray and Riskin’s daughter interweaves the story of their lives and connects them to one of the most interesting periods in Hollywood history. At the heart of this biography is a great love story, backed by a cast of characters that includes the greatest stars, filmmakers, screenwriters, and moguls of the era. Readers should not miss this touching and highly acclaimed book.

Victoria Riskin adapted Willa Cather’s My Ántonia for television and was a producer of Carson McCullers’s The Member of the Wedding as well as The Last Best Year, based on her years as a psychologist. Riskin was president of the Writers Guild of America West and served for twelve years on the Board of Directors of Human Rights Watch. She lives on Martha’s Vineyard with her husband, the writer David W. Rintels.
