Teen Fiction Book Group
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

 

Teens are invited to an informal discussion of With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo. 

"Ever since she got pregnant freshman year, Emoni Santiago’s life has been about making the tough decisions—doing what has to be done for her daughter and her abuela. The one place she can let all that go is in the kitchen, where she adds a little something magical to everything she cooks, turning her food into straight-up goodness. Even though she dreams of working as a chef after she graduates, Emoni knows that it’s not worth her time to pursue the impossible. Yet despite the rules she thinks she has to play by, once Emoni starts cooking, her only choice is to let her talent break free."

This book group will meet on the Wayland Library Discord server.

The book is available in print or as a digital download on Hoopla and on Libby.

For teens in 8th-12th grade. Please register here for the Discord info.

Tell Me the Truth: Exploring the Heart of Cross-Racial Conversations
7:00 PM - 8:45 PM

Tell Me the Truth: Exploring the Heart of Cross-Racial Conversations with Debby Irving and Shay Stewart-Bouley

How can we speak openly and honestly in cross-racial conversations? What would such a conversation even look like? Shay Stewart-Bouley (Black) and Debby Irving (White) show us as they share racism’s impact on their lives and how cross-racial conversation has been instrumental in their own understanding of 21st century racial dynamics. Shay and Debby will explore the common fears and pitfalls of cross-racial conversation that keep people isolated in their own racial groups, at the expense of personal, professional, and societal growth. They’ll also help audience members understand how interpersonal social patterns hinder organizations from living up to their own ideals for diversity. No two conversations are alike as they step on stage with no agenda. Current events, in their own lives and in the larger world, inspire the organic conversation they engage in. Finally, Shay and Debby will offer suggestions to create racial justice habits that can move us from isolated events to sustainable connections.

The Hangman's DaughterThe Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Pötzsch

Germany, 1659: When a dying boy is pulled from the river with a mark crudely tattooed on his shoulder, hangman Jakob Kuisl is called upon to investigate whether witchcraft is at play in his small Bavarian town. Whispers and dark memories of witch trials and the women burned at stake just seventy years earlier still haunt the streets of Schongau. When more children disappear and an orphan boy is found dead, marked by the same tattoo, the mounting hysteria threatens to erupt into chaos. Before the unrest forces him to torture and execute the very woman who aided in the birth of his children, Jakob must unravel the truth. With the help of his clever daughter, Magdelena, and Simon, the university-educated son of the town's physician, Jakob discovers that a devil is indeed loose in Schongau. But it may be too late to prevent bloodshed.

In October we'll read Our Time is Now by Stacey Abrams. Get your hard copy by calling the library at 508-358-2311 to set up a pick up time. Or reserve the ebookdigital audiobook, or CD audio

Celebrated national leader and bestselling author Stacey Abrams offers a blueprint to end voter suppression, empower our citizens, and take back our country. A recognized expert on fair voting and civic engagement, Abrams chronicles a chilling account of how the right to vote and the principle of democracy have been and continue to be under attack. Abrams would have been the first African American woman governor, but experienced these effects firsthand, despite running the most innovative race in modern politics as the Democratic nominee in Georgia. Abrams didn't win, but she has not conceded. The book compellingly argues for the importance of robust voter protections, an elevation of identity politics, engagement in the census, and a return to moral international leadership.

Our Time Is Now draws on extensive research from national organizations and renowned scholars, as well as anecdotes from her life and others' who have fought throughout our country's history for the power to be heard. The stakes could not be higher. Here are concrete solutions and inspiration to stand up for who we are—now.

ADHD in the Family: Understanding ADHD in Children and Adults
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

For concerned family members with loved ones who:

  • Are easily distracted
  • Have trouble focusing
  • Are disorganized
  • Waste money as a result of being disorganized
  • Squander hours on the Internet
  • Procrastinate
  • Are underachieving
  • Can’t sit still
  • Are impulsive

This may sound like a child, a spouse, or even oneself! There are effective ways to move forward and improve life at home.

ADHD in the Family is a one-hour presentation for anyone who lives with someone who has diagnosed—or even suspected—ADHD. Linda King holds advanced certifications in ADHD coaching, including family-specific ADHD coach training, and has nearly a decade of experience working with ADHD individuals and families. Her presentation gives an overview of ADHD and its effects, along with concrete methods for living with ADHD.

Linda covers topics such as:

  • ADHD types, facts, and statistics
  • Symptoms and challenges
  • Risks of undiagnosed or untreated ADHD
  • The many gifts of ADHD (yes, there are many!)
  • What works and what doesn’t
  • Effective treatments
  • Understanding the unique brain wiring of ADHD
  • Moving forward with ADHD

This one-hour presentation is ideal for:

  • Parents of children with ADHD (all ages—toddlerhood to college-aged and beyond)
  • Newly-diagnosed adults
  • Couples where ADHD is causing relationship issues
  • People who suspect that they or someone in their family has ADHD

Learning more about ADHD is the first step to meeting its many challenges.

Linda King is a former educator, former parenting instructor (Systematic Training for Effective Parenting), and current ADHD coach with over 9 years of ADHD coaching experience. She has over 350 hours of coach training, including family-specific ADHD coach training. She holds advanced certifications in both ADHD coaching and life coaching. She is a graduate of the ADD Coach Academy, a member of the International Coach Federation, and a professional member of CHADD.

While pursuing her bachelor’s degree from Chatham College in Pittsburgh, Linda interned for the Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood TV show. After graduation, Linda went on to teach elementary school in Pittsburgh Public Schools, while taking psychology classes at the University of Pittsburgh in the evenings.

She began to develop her coaching techniques at this time, successfully applying them to her teaching and motivating her students to succeed.

As a homeschooling mom, Linda fine-tuned her coaching skills, teaching her children how to use time effectively and also helping others within her homeschooling community. She worked briefly as a professional organizer, but friends encouraged her to use her skills to do ADHD coaching.

Realizing that coaching was both a calling and a passion, Linda opened her formal coaching practice in early 2010. The enthusiastic feedback she receives from her clients tells her that she’s definitely fulfilling her purpose in life.

Linda currently resides in the Boston area with her husband. They are the proud parents of two successfully-launched adult children.

Boston Marathon: History by the Mile with Paul Clerici
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

Come meet local author Paul C. Clerici as he discusses his popular book Boston Marathon: History by the Mile.

Hear all the great stories about the very beginnings of the race in Ashland; the various start lines in Hopkinton; the year in which a train cut through the race in Framingham; the Scream Tunnel of women at Wellesley College; the Johnny Kelley statue in Newton; the different finish lines in Boston; and much, much more.

In his book, the award-winning writer takes readers through the colorful 26.2-mile journey - mile by mile, town by town, story by story. With his unique vast array of experiences and knowledge - he has run the Boston Marathon 23 times and has covered it for over 30 years now - Clerici brings the great race to life through informative, humorous, and enlightening detail that includes stories about every statue, moment, landmark, and portion of the course from its start in 1897 to its current incarnation. With forewords by Boston Marathon race director Dave McGillivray and the first woman to complete the race - Roberta “Bobbi” Gibb - the book also features a wide range of vintage and race-day photos, some of which never before published.

 

About Paul Clerici: A freelance journalist, photographer, and former newspaper editor, Paul delivers talks and lectures at libraries, historical societies, bookstores, running clubs; appears at expos, book signings, group meetings; appears on television (NECN, cable stations, etc.), radio (NPR, local and city stations, etc.), and media outlets including “The Boston Globe” and the “Cape Cod Times.” Race director of the “Camy 5K Run & David 5K Walk” in Walpole, he has competed in nearly every distance from the mile to the marathon - including two triathlons, 43 marathons, the Falmouth Road Race several times - and has won numerous age-group and Clydesdale running awards.

He is also the author of A History of the Falmouth Road Race: Running Cape Cod and History of the Greater Boston Track Club.

Books will be available to purchase and be signed by the author.
