Navigation: How Not to Get Lost...via Zoom
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Visiting a new destination a few towns over used to require a map or insights from someone who knew. Today we enter the address into our GPS and go. We pick the route; freeways or not, direct or easy. How did we get to the point of having GPS?  The Greeks figured out how to get ships from A to B using latitude and longitude 5,000 years ago.  Developing tools to measure speed, time and the stars accurately would take us thousands of years.

Now we want to travel in deep space where distance is measured in light years. Spacecraft sensors sun and stars to determine the craft's orientation relative to a target location.  Join John Cilio who tells us the story of how we learned not to get lost over time.  

This program is thanks to a generous donation from the Friends of C.H. Booth Library.  Register to receive the Zoom link.

Shut Up & Write!
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Are you looking for a community of writers? Maybe just a quiet space and a set time that you can get to working on that project you've been picking at? Join us! Every Thursday at 6:30 PM, all you have to do is...

1. Show Up
2. Find a Seat, Settle In, & Write
3. Take Off or Hang Around to Chat, Share, Help, and Learn

One of the most successful techniques for developing a new habit is to commit to a specific day, time, and location when you will follow through. By making the commitment to show up for your writing at the same time each week, you are able to turn one hour of focused writing into a stable routine that yields remarkable results.

Studies have shown that even the smallest sense of belonging increases performance on a variety of tasks. When you show up for a Shut Up & Write event, not only are you supported and motivated by everyone else writing around you, you are also a part of a community of writers all over the world.


See you there!

The Future Isn’t What It Used to Be via Zoom
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Visions: Climate fiction, Solar punk, and Protopia. What happened to the Jetsons? Presented by Dr. Mitch Wagner, Climate Change Educator, Professor of Biology, Department of Biology, Western Connecticut State University

To build a better world, we must have an idea of what we want.  How have artists and writers “reimagined” the future?  Can new patterns of thought help us escape our old habits?  A note of caution from Mitch himself, "The speaker is an ecologist, not an engineer or city planner. Therefore, definitive solutions are unlikely to be proposed. Many ideas will be discussed, however, and I hope that the audience will contribute some good ones."

This program is part of our efforts to bring the 2023 UN Climate Conference in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai  November 30 - December 12 to the attention of our Patrons.
