The BuccaneersOur 3rd annual summer edition!  The Buccaneers by Edith Wharton. 

Nan and Jinny St George have both wealth and beauty in generous supply. In the New York society of the 1870s, however, only those with old money can achieve the status of the elite, and it is here that the sisters seem doomed to failure. Nan's new governess, Laura Testvalley, herself an outsider, takes pity on their plight and launches them instead on the unsuspecting British aristocracy. Lords, dukes, marquesses and MPs, it seems, not only appreciate beauty, but also the money that New York's nouveaux riches can supply.

A love story of love and marriage among the old and new moneyed classes, The Buccaneers is a delicately perceptive portrayal of a world on the brink of change.  Please reserve your copy and join us, all are invited!

Scott, Amundsen and and Shackleton: Race to the Pole
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

 

In 1900. Antarctica represented the last major unclaimed area of the world.  Great Britain would launch an expedition to explore and claim this hostile region for her Empire.  A young Royal Navy officer, Robert Falcon Scott,  was chosen to head this mission.  Scott would fail in his attempt to reach the Pole  but in  death, would soar in English status as a "True, noble, gallant Englishman".  Others  including Amundsen and Shackleton would risk  their lives to reach the pole. Why would they risk so much...for some it was the hope of fame and glory.  For others, it was to serve the Empire.

Bob Begin grew up in Maine, graduated from Babson College, served 2 years active duty in the Army, and had a career of 35 years in the paper and film industry culminating as a Logisitcs Director. The love of history continues to be very rewarding as he enjoys retirement.  Hi major focus is on Naval History with emphasis on the Pacific Theater on WWII.  He is also intrigued with the Concept Of Empire and how it shaped history throughout the world.

Sleep Better Naturally
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Do you have trouble falling asleep?  Do you fall asleep fine, but wake up periodically?  Even if you fall asleep and stay asleep, do you wake not feeling refreshed?  Do you have energy dips during the day?  

During sleep, our minds and bodies are designed to process and integrate experiences on all levels: physical, mental, and emotional. Unfortunately, poor sleep plagues many of us these days, and when we’re not rested, our physical health may deteriorate and a positive, compassionate perspective toward ourselves, our relationships, and our lives may be harder to maintain.

Join Kali in this educational and experiential talk to learn how you can use natural techniques to improve your sleep–and the overall functioning of your mind-body system.  

Kali Patrick is a Mind-body Wellness Consultant specializing in improving people's health with more ease & enjoyment. Her specialties include emotional eating, sleep difficulties, chronic pain, & stress. Her knowledge is based on training in natural / holistic modalities such as Yoga Therapy, Ayurveda, Mind-body Nutrition, Dynamic Eating Psychology, & Reiki.

The VegetarianThe Vegetarian by Han Kang; translated from the Korean by Deborah Smith

Before the nightmares began, Yeong-hye and her husband lived an ordinary, controlled life. But the dreams--invasive images of blood and brutality--torture her, driving Yeong-hye to purge her mind and renounce eating meat altogether. It's a small act of independence, but it interrupts her marriage and sets into motion an increasingly grotesque chain of events at home. As her husband, her brother-in-law and sister each fight to reassert their control, Yeong-hye obsessively defends the choice that's become sacred to her. Soon their attempts turn desperate, subjecting first her mind, and then her body, to ever more intrusive and perverse violations, sending Yeong-hye spiraling into a dangerous, bizarre estrangement, not only from those closest to her, but also from herself.

Turn Right at Machu Piccu:  Rediscovering the Lost City One Step at a Time by Mark Adams

In 1911, Hiram Bingham III climbed into the Andes Mountains of Peru and “discovered” Machu Picchu. While history has recast Bingham as a villain who stole both priceless artifacts and credit for finding the great archeological site, Mark Adams set out to retrace the explorer’s perilous path in search of the truth—except he’d written about adventure far more than he’d actually lived it. In fact, he’d never even slept in a tent.  This is the author's fascinating and funny account of his journey through some of the world’s most majestic, historic, and remote landscapes guided only by a hard-as-nails Australian survivalist and one nagging question: Just what was Machu Picchu?

Lawrence of Arabia, The Arab Revolt, and The Middle East
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

In 1914, World War I was raging.  In the Middle East England was fighting the Turks who had aligned themselves with Germany.  The Arabs were seeking to gain freedom from  the yoke of the Ottoman Empire. England needed to protect the Suez Canal  which was the lifeline to India, her most valuable colony.  Add to this mix a young idealized English archeologist who had dreams of liberating an oppressed people.  Lawrence would encourage the Arabs to join with the Allies with a promise that any lands liberated by them would be under Arab control at the war's end.  This is a story of false diplomacy, and broken promises, which continue to haunt the world to the present day.

Bob Begin grew up in Maine, graduated from Babson College, served 2 years active duty in the Army, and had a career of 35 years in the paper and film industry culminating as a Logisitcs Director. The love of history continues to be very rewarding as he enjoys retirement.  Hi major focus is on Naval History with emphasis on the Pacific Theater on WWII.  He is also intrigued with the Concept Of Empire and how it shaped history throughout the world.

We Love You, Charlie FreemanWe Love You, Charlie Freeman by Kaitlyn Greenidge 

The Freeman family--Charles, Laurel, and their daughters, teenage Charlotte and nine-year-old Callie--have been invited to the Toneybee Institute in rural Massachusetts to participate in a research experiment. They will live in an apartment on campus with Charlie, a young chimp abandoned by his mother. The Freemans were selected for the experiment because they know sign language; they are supposed to teach it to Charlie and welcome him as a member of their family. Isolated in their new, nearly all-white community not just by their race but by their strange living situation, the Freemans come undone. And when Charlotte discovers the truth about the Institute’s history of questionable studies, the secrets of the past begin to invade the present.

Lillian Boxfish Takes a WalkLillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney

Lillian Boxfish took 1930s New York by storm, working her way up writing copy to become the highest paid advertising woman in the country. Now it's the last night of 1984 and Lillian, 85 years old but just as sharp and savvy as ever, is on her way to a party. Manhattan is grittier now, but the quick-tongued poetess has never been one to scare easily. On a walk that takes her over 10 miles around the city, she meets bartenders, bodega clerks, security guards, criminals, children, parents, and parents-to-be, while reviewing a life of excitement and adversity, passion and heartbreak, illuminating all the ways New York has changed-- and has not.

Mountain to Mountain:  A Journey of Adventure and Activism for the Women of Afghanistan by Shannon Galpin

Being inspired to act can take many forms. For some it's taking a weekend to volunteer, but for Shannon Galpin, it meant leaving her career, selling her house, launching a nonprofit and committing her life to advancing education and opportunity for women and girls. Focusing on the war-torn country of Afghanistan, Galpin and her organization, Mountain2Mountain, have touched the lives of hundreds of men, women and children. As if launching a nonprofit wasn't enough, in 2009 Galpin became the first woman to ride a mountain bike in Afghanistan. Now she's using that initial bike ride to gain awareness around the country, encouraging people to use their bikes "as a vehicle for social change and justice to support a country where women don't have the right to ride a bike."

Preston Heller, Mentalist
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Come be amazed by Preston Heller the Mentalist who will read your mind!  Well, maybe not read it but he will certainly reveal information known only to you.  This is a program you won't want to miss. Everyone will be leaving wondering how he does it.  

The program is 100% family friendly, but due to the nature of the subject matter, it is recommended for ages 12 and up.

Preston's requested form of payment is a collection for our local food pantry which we think is the best kind of honorarium. Don't you think so?  Please bring something with you for donation.
