Zoom Author talk, Yellowface

We welcome you to register for a thrilling conversation with Rebecca F. Kuang (R.F. Kuang) as she chats with us about her New York Times bestselling novel, Yellowface. Yellowface grapples with questions of diversity, racism, and cultural appropriation, as well as the terrifying alienation of social media. Click here to register! This talk is online only, and does not take place at the library. This talk is brought to you by our membership in the Library Speakers Consortium, funded by the Library Support Fund. Click here to see all the upcoming author talks in June, July and August!

In Yellowface, Authors June Hayward and Athena Liu were supposed to be twin rising stars. But Athena’s a literary darling. June Hayward is literally nobody. Who wants stories about basic white girls, June thinks.

So when June witnesses Athena’s death in a freak accident, she acts on impulse: she steals Athena’s just-finished masterpiece, an experimental novel about the unsung contributions of Chinese laborers during World War I.

So what if June edits Athena’s novel and sends it to her agent as her own work? So what if she lets her new publisher rebrand her as Juniper Song—complete with an ambiguously ethnic author photo? Doesn’t this piece of history deserve to be told, whoever the teller? That’s what June claims, and the New York Times bestseller list seems to agree.

But June can’t get away from Athena’s shadow, and emerging evidence threatens to bring June’s (stolen) success down around her. As June races to protect her secret, she discovers exactly how far she will go to keep what she thinks she deserves.

White lies, dark humor, and deadly consequences await within the pages of Yellowface. With its totally immersive first-person voice, Kuang’s novel is timely, razor-sharp, and eminently readable. Register to join the conversation! 

About the Author: Rebecca F. Kuang is the award-winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Poppy War trilogy, Babel: An Arcane History, and Yellowface. A Marshall Scholar, she has an MPhil in Chinese Studies from Cambridge and an MSc in Contemporary Chinese Studies from Oxford; she is now pursuing a PhD in East Asian Languages and Literatures at Yale, where she studies diaspora, contemporary Chinese literature, and Asian American literature.

Fact & Fiction Book Discussion

           
Title selection is:  The memoirs of Stockholm Sven by Nathaniel Ian Miller

In 1916, Sven Ormson leaves a restless life in Stockholm to seek adventure in Svalbard, an Arctic archipelago where darkness reigns four months of the year and he might witness the splendor of the Northern Lights one night and be attacked by a polar bear the next. But his time in a mining camp ends when an avalanche nearly kills him, leaving him disfigured, after which Sven flees even farther, to an uninhabited fjord. There, with the company of a loyal dog, he builds a hut and lives alone, testing himself against the elements. The teachings of a Finnish fur trapper, along with encouraging letters from his family and a Scottish geologist who befriended him in the mining camp, get him through his first winter. Years into his routine isolation, the arrival of an unlikely visitor salves his loneliness, sparking a chain of surprising events that will bring Sven into a family of fellow castoffs that determine the course of the rest of his life. Written with wry humor and in prose as breathtaking as the stark landscape it evolkes, The Memoirs of Stockholm Sven is a testament to the strength of our human bonds, reminding us that eve in the most inhospitable conditions on the planet, we are not beyond the reach of love.

The Fact & Fiction Book Discussion group will meet the last Wednesday of the month.

Great Decisions 2024 - High Seas Treaty
Great Decisions, produced by the Foreign Policy Association (FPA), is America’s largest civic discussion program on world affairs.  The Great Decisions 2024 series highlights eight critical foreign policy challenges facing Americans.  In each bi-weekly session, a volunteer moderator will lead the group in discussing the selected topic of great importance to Americans in a non-partisan, open environment.  Prior to each session, participants will read the relevant chapter in the Great Decisions Briefing Book and watch the corresponding Master Class, which are available for checkout to participants at the reference desk.  Supplemental information and lectures will also be provided.  Participants are encouraged to attend all eight sessions but you may choose to attend only certain topics.  Registration is required for each session and will be limited to 20 participants.
 
High Seas Treaty
Areas of the seas beyond national jurisdiction comprise the high seas, which are facing a degradation of ecosystems due to climate change and the increase in human activities, such as shipping, overfishing, pollution, and deep-sea mining. The recently negotiated High Seas Treaty, also known as the Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction treaty, will attempt to address these issues. How difficult will it be to convince nations to participate?  By FPA Editors

Historic Storms of Cape Cod with Don Wilding

This is a Falmouth Reads Together event for our 2024 book pick The Finest Hours!

Join us on Saturday, June 1st at 3pm in the Hermann Room for an author talk with Don Wilding who will be discussing his latest book, Historic Storms of Cape Cod.

"Cape Cod has always been in the path of deadly hurricanes and ferocious storms. Unwelcome summer visitors include the “Long Island Express” Hurricane of 1938, the Great Atlantic Hurricane of 1944, the twin Hurricanes Carol and Edna in 1954, and Hurricane Bob in 1991. These storms destroyed countless homes and left several coastal communities under several feet of water. Surging tides carried away houses with residents inside who didn't survive. Fall and winter brought the infamous “Portland Gale,” the benchmark “Blizzard of 1978,” the nor’easter of January 1987, and the infamous “Perfect Storm” of October 1991 which delivered some of the highest tides ever seen on the Outer Cape. Join local author and Harwich Conservation Trust walk leader Don Wilding as he revisits the Cape’s most severe weather events and their devastating impact."

Don Wilding is the author of five books on Cape Cod history, a Cape tour guide and a regular speaker on Cape Cod lore in Massachusetts and across New England. He was an award-winning newspaper editor, writer, and designer in Massachusetts for 36 years, including a recent stint as a contributing history columnist and photographer for Cape newspapers. 

Reigstration is required and this program is supported by the Falmouth Reads Together Committee.

Zoom author talk: For the Love of Mars

Mars and its secrets have fascinated and mystified humans since ancient times. Due to its vivid color and visibility, geologic kinship with Earth, and potential as our best hope for settlement, Mars embodies everything that inspires us about space and exploration. For the Love of Mars surveys the red planet's place in the human imagination, beginning with ancient astrologers and skywatchers and ending in our present moment of exploration and virtual engagement. Click here to register-this talk is online only, and does not take place in the library. This talk is brought to you by our membership in the Library Speakers Consortium, funded by the Library Support Fund. Click here to see all the upcoming author talks in June, July and August!

You’re invited to come learn alongside Matt Shindell, National Air and Space Museum curator, as he introduces viewers to historical figures across eras and around the world who have made sense of this mysterious planet. Shindell will highlight historical figures such as: 

  • Mayan astrologer priests who incorporated Mars into seasonal calendars and religious ceremonies; 
  • Babylonian astrologers who discerned bad omens; 
  • figures of the Scientific Revolution who struggled to comprehend it as a world; 
  • Victorian astronomers who sought signs of intelligent life; and
  • 20th- and 21st-century scientists who have established a technological presence on its surface. 

Along the way, we will encounter writers and artists from each period who take readers and viewers on imagined journeys to Mars.

 By focusing on the diverse human stories behind the telescopes and behind the robots we know and love, Shindell will show how Mars exploration has evolved in ways that have also expanded knowledge about other facets of the universe. Register now for this captivating voyage through time!

About the Author: Matthew Shindell, Ph.D., is a historian of science with a background in science studies. He is Curator of Earth and Planetary Science at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. He is responsible for the Museum’s collection of spacecraft, instruments, and other artifacts related to the exploration and study of our Earth and solar system. He co-hosts the Museum’s podcast, AirSpace. He curated the Museum’s permanent exhibition, Exploring the Planets, and is leading a curatorial team developing the exhibition Futures in Space. Shindell is the author of For the Love of Mars: A Human History of the Red Planet (2023) and The Life and Science of Harold C. Urey (2019), coauthor of Spaceships (2023), Our Future in Space (2023), and Discerning Experts (2019), and co-editor of Smithsonian American Women (2019).

Two Authors, Two New Books, and their Writing Group

Did you ever wonder about starting or joining a writing group? Barbara E. Struna and Iris G. Leigh have been writing together since 2008. Writing can be a solitary (and sometimes lonely) endeavor. This presentation will discuss how they progressed from their first pages to published books. As part of an ongoing group, they support each other through all aspects of the writing and publishing process. Barbara, the author of six books, including The Old Cape House and her newest, The Old Cape Map, will discuss her books. Iris will talk about her debut novel, Liza’s Secrets.

Barbara Eppich Struna, international best-selling author and storyteller at heart, bases her tales on the history, myth, and legends of Cape Cod and her own personal experiences. Her suspenseful historical novels, part of her Old Cape Series, have won numerous literary awards and accumulated thousands of reviews. Barbara resides on Cape Cod with her family and is President of Cape Cod Writers Center; a member of International Thriller Writers and a member of Sisters In Crime, National and New England. She also writes a blog about the unique facts and myths of Cape Cod at barbarastruna.blogspot.com. You can follow her on Instagram- barbara_struna, Twitter- @Goodystruna, Facebook-
B.E. Struna Books.

The Old Cape Map:
"There is treasure in Brewster on Cape Cod! Will Nancy Caldwell and her niece Jane find it? Or is Max Appleton desperate enough to risk everything and uncover the riches first? In the historical fiction, The Old Cape Map, best-selling author Barbara Eppich Struna,takes you back and forth from Cape Cod to Millbury Massachusetts. Using dueling timelines from 1900 and present-day, this adventure is filled with suspense, secrets, and Spanish gold."

After retiring from academic and healthcare careers, Iris and her husband moved to Cape Cod. With the support of a long-standing writing group, she wrote, and edited her stories, eventually leading to the publication of her debut novel, Liza’s Secrets by Black Rose Writing. Working with this group of women has been a labor of love and friendship. She is a member of the Cape Cod Writer’s Center and actively takes part in book groups, supporting other writers. Iris has a passion for and was an international presenter on bullying prevention. Liza’s Secrets is a story about a woman being bullied by her husband and her journey to independence. The blending of her professional and artistic careers has been fulfilling. You can follow her on Instagram: irisbell, Facebook: Iris Glazner Leigh Author, and Bookbub: @irisglaznerleigh.

Liza's Secrets:
"Liza’s Secrets is a fast-paced domestic suspense set in idyllic Chatham. Iris Leigh’s page turner is told with juxtaposing tension and humor. It’s a fun read and should be in every beach bag and book club list. What would you do if you had to hide and had no place to go?"

Dancemeditation with Dunya

We are thrilled to welcome back Dunya McPherson for an introductory session of beautiful Dancemeditation!  The session will begin with Dunya leading a period of relaxing, wordless instruction to focus participants attention followed by a few simple, rich moving meditations to sink down a couple of notches inside the self, touching Self. There will be some time for participants to do their own exploratory intuitive movement, to digest and integrate meditative efforts. At the end, we will have time for questions and reflections. Please register by clicking the "Register" button below!

Dancemeditation helps us be present in our body in the Moment and brings solace, stability, and magic. Without words, with beautiful music, with eyes open or closed, in a continual flow of breath awareness, we move through the crust of harried worries and into our huge spiritual intelligence. We turn away from the external and turn toward the internal. We turn toward awareness of breathing and motion and our body. Rather than working out, we work in.

A pioneer in embodied mysticism and Founder of Dancemeditation™, Dunya McPherson specializes in opening the wonderment of deep, subtle, peaceful self-perception. She is a Juilliard alumna, a Sufi master, a NY Times critically acclaimed choreographer, and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship recipient, Dunya is a practicing artist, academic educator, and presenter at healing arts centers worldwide including Kripalu. She is also the author of two books on dance as spiritual path. Skin of Glass: Finding Spirit in the Flesh and Movement Meditations for Awakening. Learn more about Dunya on her website by clicking here!

Great Decisions 2024 - Pandemic Preparedness
Great Decisions, produced by the Foreign Policy Association (FPA), is America’s largest civic discussion program on world affairs.  The Great Decisions 2024 series highlights eight critical foreign policy challenges facing Americans.  In each bi-weekly session, a volunteer moderator will lead the group in discussing the selected topic of great importance to Americans in a non-partisan, open environment.  Prior to each session, participants will read the relevant chapter in the Great Decisions Briefing Book and watch the corresponding Master Class, which are available for checkout to participants at the reference desk.  Supplemental information and lectures will also be provided.  Participants are encouraged to attend all eight sessions but you may choose to attend only certain topics.  Registration is required for each session and will be limited to 20 participants.
 
Pandemic Preparedness
Looking back at the covid-19 pandemic, there are many lessons to take away in terms of domestic and international policies. Although this pandemic seems to have waned, how can we apply these lessons to future pandemics?  Will countries cooperate, and will a consensus emerge on how to manage global health challenges?  By Carolyn Reynolds
