Atlas of Life with Matt Pelikan

Join the Martha’s Vineyard Libraries and Atlas of Life program director Matt Pelikan as he
shares highlights of the newly-launched MVAL website. This website will serve as an outlet for
community members to share their sightings of flora and fauna, and a resource to learn more
about the nature around them.

Launched in 2021 by BiodiversityWorks and the Betsy and Jesse Fink Family Foundation, the
Martha’s Vineyard Atlas of Life project seeks to enlist a broad community of nature enthusiasts
to document the distinctive biodiversity of Martha’s Vineyard. Along with acting as a destination
to record and index the extraordinary biodiversity of the Island of Martha’s Vineyard; the
website will also act as a centralized resource for the public to deepen its knowledge of the
Island’s plants and animals.

During this event, Matt will explain how the program’s new website is recording species from
across the Island through using both archival information and modern resources to log sightings
past and present. Anyone can contribute to this growing Island atlas by reporting plant and
animal sightings using the iNaturalist mobile app or directly on the MVAL website. Join us in
learning more about how you can get involved.

This event will take place at the West Tisbury Library, and is sponsored by the West Tisbury,
Chilmark, Vineyard Haven, Edgartown and Oak Bluffs Public Libraries.

Free. Email questions to amcdonough@clamsnet.org

Virtual : Writing as a Gift

As the holidays approach, it is the perfect time to ignite your creativity and put it to good use, weaving a wonderful gift of beautiful words, with the intention of gifting it others in your life who will appreciate it. For words have tremendous power—they can be used to heal, inspire, empower, encourage, entertain, amuse, delight, enlighten affirm, create deeper understanding, and to offer loving kindness and compassion. So why not consciously choose to use our power to write, with the intention of offering our words as a gift to others?  When you do so, you may brighten someone’s day …. or perhaps even help change the direction of their life….

You will be encouraged to consider getting started writing any of the following:

  • A short bit of memoir/true-to-life story about someone who has had a positive influence on your life, and who you wish to acknowledge.  (And if they are no longer alive, you can then offer this written story/testament to others in their circle of family and friends who may appreciate gaining a deeper insight into this person’s life and character).
  •  A brief poem, in the form of a tribute to a special person, event, or place.
  • A beautiful letter of encouragement, empathy, or appreciation --- perhaps to help inspire someone in your life who is enduring a hard time and needs some extra encouragement, or to someone who has been of great help to you – perhaps in a troubled time of your own -- and who you can now offer words of deepest appreciation to.

Led by Caroline Joy Adams, M.Ed., who has lead writing workshops in numerous locations nationwide including  Maui, HI,  Boston, Cape Cod, and Vineyard Haven, MA, Newport, RI,  Big Bear Lake, CA, and has been a college writing professor for many years. She is also the author of seven books including The Power to Write: Seven Keys to Discover Your Writer Within.

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:

I AND YOU: Fundraising Event with Luce Playreaders

Join us for a special fundraising event at the Martha's Vineyard Film Center.  Enjoy a special reading of I AND YOU, performed by John Brannen and Beebee Horowitz, players in the Peter H Luce Playreaders, directed by Linda Comstock. “I AND YOU” is a play about the search for connection as two young adults (performed by two not-so-young Play Readers!) navigate a rocky path to a relationship. As they work together on a project in witty, non-stop repartee, they discover what makes up an ‘I and You’ relationship – a challenge as Caroline is housebound with a life-threatening illness while Anthony is a popular thriving athlete. Written by Lauren Gunderson, a multiple award-winning playwright, who in 2019 alone had a whopping total of 16 plays in production.

Attend the event and enter to win some awesome prizes from these generous donors: Bunch of Grapes, Calleen’s Day Spa, CB Stark, Cronigs, Green Room, Louisa Gould Gallery, Our Market, Nochi, Pie Chicks, Salvatore’s, Vineyard Pilates!

Event sponsored by the Friends of the Library and the MV Film Society to benefit the Vineyard Haven Library Building Fund, Inc.  Tickets are $25 sold at the Film Center or online at mvfilmsociety.com. Doors open for admissions 30 minutes prior to screening.

Virtual : FOUR FABULOUS WOMEN ARTISTS YOU PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF: ART TALK SERIES WITH JANET MANDEL

Suzanne Valadon was the illegitimate daughter of a sewing maid whose formal education ended
at age eleven. She worked as a circus acrobat and artists’ model and gleaned what she could
about painting by watching and listening to the men who put her image on canvas. Toulouse-
Lautrec and Degas were her most important artistic influences. Under their tutelage she began to
paint and created powerful, unconventional images, principally of women. Although mostly
unknown today, she is regarded by scholars as an important chronicler of women’s experiences.
Her paintings remain fresh and modern, cementing her legacy as a significant figure in the
history of art.

Janet Mandel taught in New Jersey’s public schools for 32 years, where she taught English, art
history, World Languages and Cultures. Now retired, Janet presents illustrated talks on a variety of art history

topics at adult schools, libraries, museums, senior centers, community centers, and similar venues.

This is the first in a series of 4 Fabulous Women artists, to be followed by Florine Stettheimer (Feb 7th),

(Augusta Savage March 22nd), and Ruth Asawa (April 19th).

This series is brought to you by the Chilmark and VH libraries. Please contact tthorpe@clamsnet.org

or amcdonough@clamsnet.org for the Zoom link.

Virtual : FOUR FABULOUS WOMEN ARTISTS YOU PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF: ART TALK SERIES WITH JANET MANDEL

Florine Stettheimer remains one of New York’s most unconventional painters, Florine Stettheimer was a keen and
opinionated observer of the people and rapidly changing world around her. Her famous salon,
attended by New York’s avant-garde during the 1920s through the early ’40s, was legendary.
She prophetically chose to portray subjects considered controversial even today, such as race,
sexual orientation, gender, and religion. Come and hear about the unique life of this German-
Jewish artist and see some of her most celebrated works. It is time to recognize Florine
Stettheimer as one of the most significant artists of the 20 th  century, whose work remains as
modern and relevant today as it was a century ago.

Janet Mandel taught in New Jersey’s public schools for 32 years, where she taught English, art
history, World Languages and Cultures. Now retired, Janet presents illustrated talks on a variety of art history

Virtual : Dirtbag, Massachusetts: An Evening with Isaac Fitzgerald

Join us for a very special author event!  Isaac Fitzgerald has lived many lives. He's been an altar boy, a bartender, a fat kid, a smuggler, a biker, a prince of New England. But before all that, he was a bomb that exploded his parents' lives-or so he was told. In Dirtbag, Massachusetts, Fitzgerald, with warmth and humor, recounts his ongoing search for forgiveness, a more far-reaching vision of masculinity, and a more expansive definition of family and self. 

Fitzgerald appears frequently on The Today Show and is also the author of the bestselling children’s book How to Be a Pirate as well as the co-author of Pen & Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them and Knives & Ink: Chefs and the Stories Behind Their Tattoos. His writing has appeared in The New York TimesThe AtlanticEsquireThe GuardianThe Best American Nonrequired Reading, and numerous other publications. He is Boston born, raised in Athol, and currently lives in Brooklyn, N.Y.

This program is brought to you in collaboration of many of the libraries across the Commonwealth.

The discussion will be moderated by Daniel Ford, host of The Writer's Bone Podcast.

This live online event will be held on the platform Crowdcast. To register, first create a Crowdcast account or sign in with Twitter, Facebook, or Google. After you have signed in, click the "Save My Spot" button and use the password below.

Virtual : HOW TO SUPPLEMENT YOUR INCOME BUYING & SELLING HOUSEHOLD CONTENTS

 Is it possible to make money while having fun? Ask any Antiques Dealer and they’ll most likely say “Yes”. While the Antiques & Collectibles market has softened in recent years, bargains still abound…if you know what to doand where to look. In this program Mike & Sue Ivankovich will show you how you can supplement your income, regardless of age or experience. Part I revolves around “Buying”, because you can’t sell from an empty wagon, and they’ll review not only What to Buy, but Where to Buy It. Part II includes “Selling” because that’s where the profit comes in. And throughout the program they’ll share more than 25 ways and places you can Buy & Sell, while also providing Ideas, Tips, Strategies, and Vignettes. NOTE: This program is not magic and you won’t become rich just by taking it. But Mike & Sue will give you the tools, and show you what you can do to supplement your income, whether you’re a retiree or millennial. And you just may have some fun along the way.
