Join us on Monday April 23rd at 6:15

Following the film, we will host a live panel discussion.

This film is part of a series funded by the MetroWest Health Foundation.

----------- Here's To Flint -----------

The ACLU of Michigan documentary “Here’s To Flint” is an examination of the origins of the Flint water crisis and the determined efforts of Flint residents, activists and researchers to learn the truth about the city’s lead-contaminated drinking water.

Based on the work of ACLU of Michigan investigative reporter Curt Guyette, "Here's To Flint" is an exhaustive probe into how the city was left exposed to lead-tainted drinking water for nearly two years. Featuring in-depth testimonials from Flint residents, activists, and experts talking about their struggles to expose the truth despite government denials, the documentary underscores just how vital it is that citizens be able to hold their leaders accountable.

Local Author Series: Daniel Hudon
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us in weloming Daniel Hudon, local author of "Brief Eulogies for Lost Animals: An Extinction Reader".  In this collection of one hundred brief eulogies, science writer and poet Daniel Hudon gives a literary voice to the losses stacking up in our present-day age of extinction. Natural history, poetic prose, reportage, and eulogy blend to form a tally of degraded habitats, and empty burrows, and of the songs of birds never to be heard again.

Daniel Hudon, originally from Canada, is a lecturer in astronomy and math. He has a Ph.D. in astronomy and his first book was a popular, witty guide to all things cosmic, “The Bluffer’s Guide to the Cosmos,” (Oval Books, London). He has published two chapbooks: “Evidence for Rainfall,” which is a collection of science-themed prose and poetry, and “The Hole in the Living Room Floor” (both with Pen and Anvil, Boston), which was inspired by a New Yorker cartoon. While involved in a team-taught course on biodiversity at Boston University, he developed an interest in the biodiversity crisis and this became the focus of his new book, “Brief Eulogies for Lost Animals: An Extinction Reader” (Pen and Anvil, Boston). He lives in Boston, MA.

Civil War Hijinks with Judy Cook
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Civil War Hijinks: A story told through family letters, songs and images from the time.

Letters, images, and music combine to provide fascinating insight into camp and home life in Middle America of the 1860's.

You will see photos of the day; images of the letters of Judy’s great-great-grandparents, Gilbert and Esther Claflin; and lyrics of the choruses projected on a large screen.  Judy, in costume, reads Esther’s letters, plays the tunes of the time, and sings songs that were written and sung during the Civil War.  Dennis Cook is the voice of Gilbert Claflin, and a welcome harmonizer.

The songs and tunes include both well-known favorites and unfamiliar gems. The themes are timeless: joy and sorrow, humor, courage and love.

The stories are told in the words of the people of the day: the writers of the songs and letters.  We sing together, as folks did then.  The audience is transported to the time of the Civil War in a very personal, eye-witness experience.

About the Artist:

Judy Cook is a published author, singer, and entertainer.  A packet of aged papers covered with sloping script in faded ink opened a window on the past for Judy.  Already established as an internationally touring performer, Judy was inspired to create entertaining programs from Nineteenth Century material. The letters and a decade’s research were published in 2013 by University of Wisconsin Press as “A Quiet Corner of the War: The Civil War Letters of Gilbert and Esther Claflin, Oconomowoc, WI, 1862-63”.

Judy Cook performs each year throughout the United States and Britain.  Judy is recognized for her depth of understanding and storytelling ability in ballad form, for her dedication to the music and for her willingness to do her research.  Judy has half a dozen CDs including one with many of the songs from this program.
