Author Max Klau
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us as Dr. Max Klau presents his new book, Race and Social Change: A Quest, A Study, A Call to Action.

Recent events have turned the spotlight on the issue of race in modern America, and the current cultural climate calls out for more research, education, dialogue, and understanding. This work focuses on a provocative social science experiment with the potential to address these needs. Through an analysis grounded in the perspectives of developmental psychology, adaptive leadership and complex systems theory, the inquiry at the heart of this book illuminates dynamics of race and social change in surprising and important ways. 

Dr. Max Klau is a leadership development scholar and practitioner living in Boston. He currently serves as the Chief Program Officer at the New Politics Leadership Academy, a non-profit that is dedicated to recruiting and developing alumni of national service programs to seek political office. Before stepping into this role, he was the Vice President of Leadership Development at City Year, Inc., the national service program headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. Max received his doctorate of education (Ed.D.) from the Harvard Graduate School of Education in 2005; his studies focused on civic leadership education. An alumnus of four service programs, he has completed two years of service in Israel and led service programs in Israel, Honduras, Ghana, and the Ukraine. He is on the board of the International Leadership Association, and his writing about leadership has appeared in Fast Company, the Huffington Post, the Washington Post, and the Harvard Business Review.

This event is presented and co-sponsored by the Wayland Community for Social Justice.  WCSJ's mission is to promote and practice continuous learning about the diversity of our society, its history and current status, and encourage Wayland residents and stakeholders to use this knowledge to advocate for social justice.

The Sympathizer: A Novel (Pulitzer Prize for Fiction)The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen 

With Saigon about to fall to the enemy in the waning days of the Vietnam War, a South Vietnamese general goes about the task of deciding who will be given permission to board the last flights out of the country. At his side is his trusted captain, a man whose loyalty he does not question. As Saigon falls, the general and his colleagues escape to America, where they find freedom, but not status. They settled into new lives as janitors, cooks, and liquor store owners, unaware that one of them is secretly reporting their activities to the enemy back in Vietnam. The captain's loyalties have long belonged to the Communists, and even in a new land, he will do anything to keep his actions a secret. First novel. (2015)

Swamplandia!
By Russell, Karen


Swamplandia!The Bigtree alligator wrestling dynasty is in decline, and Swamplandia!, its island home and gator-wrestling theme park, is swiftly being encroached upon by a competitor. To save her family, Ava must journey on her own to a perilous part of the swamp called the Underworld.

Against a backdrop of hauntingly fecund plant life animated by ancient lizards and lawless hungers, Karen Russell has written an utterly singular novel about a family's struggle to stay afloat in a world that is inexorably sinking. An arrestingly beautiful and inventive work from a vibrant new voice in fiction.

Every time Bill Bryson walks out the door memorable travel literature threatens to break out. Now he has traveled across the world and all the way Down Under to Australia, a shockingly under-discovered country with the friendliest inhabitants, the hottest, driest weather, and the most peculiar and lethal wildlife to be found on the planet. In a Sunburned Country is his report on what he found there--a deliciously funny, fact-filled, and adventurous performance by a writer who combines humor, wonder, and unflagging curiosity.

John and Abigail Adams: An American Story


Both John and Abigail Adams played important roles in the many pivotal events of their times.  He was a key figure in the
Continental Congress and later wartime emissary to France; she was an important eyewitness reporter during the siege of Boston and in John's absence left alone to raise the family and manage the farm.  After the Revolution, John and Abigail were deeply caught up in the political turmoil of the 1790’s, which almost pulled the new nation apart. Join history professory Gary Hylander as he discusses one of America's most interesting couples in history.
