Thursday Evening Book Club - Talking to Strangers

Talking to Strangers: What we Should Know About the People we Don't Know, by Malcom Gladwell. Talking to Strangers is a classically Gladwellian intellectual adventure, a challenging and controversial excursion through history, psychology, and scandals taken from the news.  Something is very wrong, Gladwell argues, with the tools and strategies we use to make sense of people we don't know.  And because we don't know how to talk to strangers, we are inviting conflict and misunderstanding in ways that have a profound effect on our lives and our world.  For more information, please call 603-624-6550 ext. 7619 to register or to reserve a print copy. You can join us in the Winchell Room or via zoom.  Registration is required.

War is a Stern Teacher: Understanding the Russian invasion of Ukraine

The Manchester City Library invites you to an informative discussion on the conflict in Ukraine on Tuesday, October 18th at 6:30pm. This program will be held at the Manchester City Library and on Zoom

This talk will explain the motives behind Russia's continued invasion of Ukraine.

The discussion will involve audience participation.

Brandon K. Gauthier completed his doctorate in Modern History at Fordham University in New York City in 2016. He is an Adjunct Professor of History for Fordham University and the Director of Global Education at The Derryfield School. He speaks passionately, and loudly. He lives with his wife and two daughters in New Hampshire. BEFORE EVIL is his first book.

Perspectives Book Group - Black Elk Speaks

Black Elk SpeaksInstead of our normal Thursday Evening Book Club, we're proud to be hosting a New Hampshire Humanities' Perspectives Book Group. We'll be reading and discussing Black Elk Speaks by Nicholas Black Elk. Our guest facilitator will be Damian Costello.

Black Elk Speaks, the story of the Oglala Lakota visionary and healer Nicholas Black Elk (1863-1950) and his people during momentous twilight years of the nineteenth century, offers readers much more than a precious glimpse of a vanished time. Black Elk's searing visions of the unity of humanity and Earth, conveyed by John G. Neihardt, have made this book a classic that crosses multiple genres. Whether appreciated as the poignant tale of a Lakota life, as a history of a Native nation, or as an enduring spiritual testament, Black Elk Speaks is unforgettable.

Black Elk met the distinguished poet, writer, and critic John G. Neihardt in 1930 on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and asked Neihardt to share his story with the world. Neihardt understood and conveyed Black Elk's experiences in this powerful and inspirational message for all humankind.

This program is made possible by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities. Learn more at www.nhhumanities.org.

Registration is required, and you may pick up a free copy of the book at the circulation desk once you have registered. Join us in person or via Zoom. Contact Steve Viggiano at 603-624-6550 x 7623 or sviggiano@manchesternh.gov for more information, to register, or to obtain the Zoom link.

Thursday Evening Book Club - Vanderbilt: the Rise and Fall of an American Dynasty

Group is reading "Vanderbilt: the Rise and Fall of an American Dynasty" by Anderson, Cooper.  When sleven-year-old Cornelius Vanderbilt began to work on his father's small boat ferrying supplies in New York Harbor at the beginning of the nineteeth century, no one could have imagined that one day he would, through ruthlessness, cunning, and a pathological desire for money, build two empires - one in shipping and another in railroads - that would make him the richest man in America.  By 2018, whe the last Vanderbilt was forced out of The Breakers - the seventy-room summer estate in Newport, Rhode Island - the family would have been unrecognizable to the tycoon who started it all.  Now, the Commodore's great-great-great-grandson Anderson Cooper joins with historian Katherine Howe to explore the story of his legendary family and their outsized influence.  You can join us in person or via zoom.  Registration is required.  Call the information desk at 603-624-6550 ext. 7619 to register, or to reserve a print copy.
