Accidental Travel Writer: Lost in ‘Stanland’

Flyer for Lost in ‘Stanland’Four years after the fall of the Soviet Union, David Mould landed in Osh, the second largest city in Kyrgyzstan, to establish a training center for local journalists. He found himself in a country going through wrenching economic, social, and political change. In the December snow, families spread blankets on the sidewalks, selling what they had to buy food and fuel. The experience made a deep impression. David returned to Kyrgyzstan the next year for a Fulbright Fellowship, and made frequent trips to the country and its northern neighbor Kazakhstan over the next 20 years for teaching, research, and consulting. For the five “stans”—Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan,Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan—shaking off the legacy of 75 years of Soviet rule has not been easy. The transition to a market economy has been difficult, and some people, especially in rural areas and small cities, feel worse off than in Soviet times.

David Mould, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Media Arts and Studies at Ohio University, has traveled widely in Asia and southern Africa. Born in the UK, he worked as a newspaper and TV journalist before moving to the US. His travel essays and articles have been published in Newsweek, Christian Science Monitor, Times Higher Education, and History News Network.  His books include Monsoon Postcards: Indian Ocean Journeys (Ohio University Press, 2019) and Postcards from Stanland: Journeys in Central Asia (Ohio University Press, 2016). Read David’s travel blogs on Facebook and at www.davidhmould.com.

We will be using Zoom for this presentation. You will need a computer, smartphone, iPad, or similar device that has a camera and audio ability. New to Zoom?

Storrs Library Non-Fiction Book Club
Come join the Storrs Library Non-Fiction Book Club!  All are welcome to join us to read, learn, and discuss an array of nonfiction titles on varying subjects. Selections and their genres and topics will range in scope and detail. We encourage suggestions of titles for future meetings. Our second selection is The Master Switch: The Rise and Fall of Information Empires written by Tim Wu. Staff will be present to facilitate an open discussion during the meeting and you are encouraged to write down and bring your questions and thoughts.
 
Summary: As Wu's sweeping history shows, each of the new media of the twentieth century- radio, telephone, television, and film- was born free and open. Each invited unrestricted use and enterprising experiment until some would-be mogul battled his way to total domination. Explaining how invention begets industry and industry begets empire- a progress often blessed by government, typically with stifling consequences for free expression and technical innovation alike- Wu identifies a time-honored pattern in the maneuvers of today's great information powers. 
 
Register in Advance.  Copies of this month's book selection are available at Storrs Library.

Beekeeping: Then and Now

Flyer for Beekeeping: Then and NowThis program was originally scheduled to be in person at Storrs Library and has been moved to Zoom.

Join Storrs Library with backyard beekeeper and Park Ranger Susan Ashman as she explores the fascinating history of beekeeping. Take a look inside the different hives over time, learn about beekeeping in early New England, and discover what you can do to help these little pollinators out.

Outside of work and beekeeping, Susan is a voracious reader of Civil War and WWII history, and loves historic traveling and battlefields.

This program is cohosted by Storrs Library and Longmeadow Historical Society.

Loosely Bound Book Club
Flyer for Loosely Bound Book Club
November's book selection is The Lions of Fifth Avenue by Fiona Davis.
 
Summary from book jacket:  "It's 1913, and on the surface, Laura Lyons couldn't ask for more out of life-her husband is the superintendent of the New York Public Library, allowing their family to live in an apartment within the grand building, and they are blessed with two children. But headstrong, passionate Laura wants more, and when she takes a leap of faith and applies to the Columbia Journalism School, her world is cracked wide open. As her studies take her all over the city, she finds herself drawn to Greenwich Village's new bohemia, where she discovers the Heterodoxy Club-a radical, all-female group in which women are encouraged to loudly share their opinions on suffrage, birth control, and women's rights. Soon, Laura finds herself questioning her traditional role as wife and mother. But when valuable books are stolen back at the library, threatening the home and institution she loves, she's forced to confront her shifting priorities head on . . . and may just lose everything in the process. Eighty years later, in 1993, Sadie Donovan struggles with the legacy of her grandmother, the famous essayist Laura Lyons, especially after she's wrangled her dream job as a curator at the New York Public Library. But the job quickly becomes a nightmare when rare manuscripts, notes, and books for the exhibit Sadie's running begin disappearing from the library's famous Berg Collection. Determined to save both the exhibit and her career, the typically risk-adverse Sadie teams up with a private security expert to uncover the culprit. However, things unexpectedly become personal when the investigation leads Sadie to some unwelcome truths about her own family heritage-truths that shed new light on the biggest tragedy in the library's history"--

Accidental Travel Writer: Three Journeys in Central Asia

Flyer for Three Journeys in Central AsiaFrom Kazakhstan's surreal modern capital, Astana (recently renamed Nursultan, in honor of the long-serving president) David Mould travels to the mining and steel city of Karaganda, where thousands died in labor camps in the Stalin era. From Kyrgyzstan's less pretentious capital, Bishkek, he takes a trip on a wheezing bus to Karakol on the shore of Issyk Kul, the second-largest alpine lake in the world and a rest stop for Russian explorers and Chinese traders. And it’s a wild ride over three mountain ranges in a Lada (with vodka for ballast) from Bishkek to the ancient Silk Road city of Osh in southern Kyrgyzstan, a flash point for ethnic tensions in the post-Soviet era.

David Mould, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Media Arts and Studies at Ohio University, has traveled widely in Asia and southern Africa. Born in the UK, he worked as a newspaper and TV journalist before moving to the US. His travel essays and articles have been published in Newsweek, Christian Science Monitor, Times Higher Education, and History News Network.  His books include Monsoon Postcards: Indian Ocean Journeys (Ohio University Press, 2019) and Postcards from Stanland: Journeys in Central Asia (Ohio University Press, 2016). Read David’s travel blogs on Facebook and at www.davidhmould.com.

Accidental Travel Writer: Inexplicable India

Flyer for Inexplicable IndiaIn TV commercials and glossy tourism campaigns, it’s “Incredible India.” To David Mould, it’s a sub-continent so diverse that it defies description—simply inexplicable. India is an epic of epics, spanning thousands of years—of war and conquest, of the rise and fall of great civilizations, of architecture, literature, and art, of migration and settlement, of commerce with Asia, Europe and Africa. Faced with crowds, poverty, pollution, traffic congestion, crime and heat, some people find India too much to bear. But if you’re prepared to take India for what it is—often messy and disorganized,occasionally dangerous, and always unpredictable—you will be well rewarded, and relish its smells, sounds, sights, cultures, and people. David travels from the capital, Delhi, to the ancient Muslim city of Hyderabad in the Deccan, and via the so-called chicken neck to the states of Assam and Meghalaya in the northeast.

David Mould, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Media Arts and Studies at Ohio University, has traveled widely in Asia and southern Africa. Born in the UK, he worked as a newspaper and TV journalist before moving to the US. His travel essays and articles have been published in Newsweek, Christian Science Monitor, Times Higher Education, and History News Network.  His books include Monsoon Postcards: Indian Ocean Journeys (Ohio University Press, 2019) and Postcards from Stanland: Journeys in Central Asia (Ohio University Press, 2016).

Accidental Travel Writer: Bangladesh—Land of Rivers

Flyer for Bangladesh—Land of RiversFor a small country, about the size of Illinois, Bangladesh has a large population (about 168 million) and a lot of water, with three major river systems emptying into the Bay of Bengal. Every year, between one quarter and one third of the land area is under water, yet the rivers sustain agriculture and are highways for commerce. After the 1971 Liberation War, the former East Pakistan was one of the poorest countries in the world with high rates of maternal and infant mortality, yet has made remarkable progress in relieving poverty and improving health and education. David’s journey takes him from Old Dhaka, with its narrow alleys, bustling riverside markets and decaying colonial-era buildings to Rajshahi on the Padma (Ganges) on the border with West Bengal, to the river ports of Khulna and Barisal in the delta region, and to the tea plantations of the northeast.

David Mould, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Media Arts and Studies at Ohio University, has traveled widely in Asia and southern Africa. Born in the UK, he worked as a newspaper and TV journalist before moving to the US. His travel essays and articles have been published in Newsweek, Christian Science Monitor, Times Higher Education, and History News Network.  His books include Monsoon Postcards: Indian Ocean Journeys (Ohio University Press, 2019) and Postcards from Stanland: Journeys in Central Asia (Ohio University Press, 2016). Read David’s travel blogs on Facebook and at www.davidhmould.com.

Accidental Travel Writer: Postcards from Indonesia

Flyer for Accidental Travel Writer: Postcards from IndonesiaIt’s the world’s largest archipelagic state—17,000 islands (more or less) stretching more than 3,000 miles east to west. It has the fourth largest population in the world—more than 265 million—and the world’s largest Muslim population. Strung along the so-called Ring of Fire, Indonesia experiences more than its fair share of natural disasters—earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tsunamis. David Mould’s journey begins in the province of Aceh in Sumatra—ground zero for the 2004 tsunami. Amid the urban sprawl and traffic jams of the capital, Jakarta, he finds refuge in the old colonial port of Batavia, once the capital of the Dutch East Indies with its thriving spice trade. In Bali, he avoids Australian surfers on his way to the back country and Hindu temples. Along the way he explores Indonesia’s history of colonialism and regional conflict, its politics, media and environmental challenges.
