CANCELLED:Barbara Berenson - Votes for Women: Massachusetts Leaders in the Women's Suffrage Movement
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

This event has been CANCELLED. We hope to reschedule in the future.

Barbara Berenson, author of Massachusetts in the Woman Suffrage Movement: Revolutionary Reformers, tells the story of the national suffrage movement and gives this state’s suffragists the attention they deserve. Long before the Civil War, Lucy Stone and other abolitionists launched the organized women's movement. After the war, state activists founded the Boston-based American Woman Suffrage Association to lead campaigns across the country. Their work laid the foundation for the next generation of suffragists to triumph over tradition.

Barbara Berenson is the author of Massachusetts in the Woman Suffrage Movement: Revolutionary Reformers (2018), Boston in the Civil War: Hub of the Second Revolution (2014), and Walking Tours of Civil War Boston: Hub of Abolitionism (2011, 2d ed. 2014).  She is the co-editor of Breaking Barriers: The Unfinished Story of Women Lawyers and Judges in Massachusetts (2012). Barbara earned her undergraduate degree from Harvard College and her law degree from Harvard Law School. She works as a Senior Attorney at the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. She is on the boards of Boston By Foot and the Royall House & Slave Quarters.

This event is sponsored by the Harvard Club in Concord. All are welcome.

Learn about Pollinators & Make a Mason Bee Hotel
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Insects pollinate by accident, but for us humans pollination is absolutely essential: one third of all plant species that become our food require pollination, accounting for over half of our food supply by volume. Wayland resident Kaat Vander Straeten will teach us about pollination from the point of view of the insects, the flowers, the farmer and the 100% of our population that gets to eat!
 
 
 
Keep your hands busy while you learn by constructing a Mason Bee Hotel. Mason bees are solitary bees, unlike the honey bee who builds a hive. Female Mason bees build their own nests, gather their own food, and lay their own eggs. With all this work to do, Mason bees are far too busy to be aggressive towards people. 
 
 
 
Kaat Vander Straeten is a Wayland beekeeper, bee-educator and activist, and the founder of BEEleive, the MetroWest beekeepers group.

TED Walks! A TED Discussion and (Optional) Walking Group
10:00 AM - 11:15 AM

All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.”  - Friedrich Nietzsche

Join us for a monthly TED talk viewing and discussion program! We'll watch a TED talk for 20 minutes, discuss for 20 minutes indoors, and then, weather permitting, take a 30 minute *optional* walk to continue the discussion! Come for all or some of this program. If you just want to walk, please contact Courtney (508-358-2311) and then join us about 10:45. 

 

 

 

In April, we'll view Yuval Noah Harari's talk: "Why humans run the world."

Seventy thousand years ago, our human ancestors were insignificant animals, just minding their own business in a corner of Africa with all the other animals. But now, few would disagree that humans dominate planet Earth; we've spread to every continent, and our actions determine the fate of other animals (and possibly Earth itself). How did we get from there to here? Historian Yuval Noah Harari suggests a surprising reason for the rise of humanity.

In his book, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, Yuval Noah Harari explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the 21st century -- from overcoming death to creating artificial life. He maps the future and asks fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? How will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? The book has sold four million copies since its publication in 2016.

Harari's previous book, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, explores what made homo sapiens the most successful species on the planet. His answer: We are the only animal that can believe in things that exist purely in our imagination, such as gods, states, money, human rights, corporations and other fictions, and we have developed a unique ability to use these stories to unify and organize groups and ensure cooperation. Sapiens has sold eight million copies and been translated into more than 50 languages. Bill GatesMark Zuckerberg and President Barack Obama have recommended it as a must-read.

Harari's latest book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, takes the pulse of our current global climate, focusing on the biggest questions of the present moment: What is really happening right now? What are today’s greatest challenges and choices? What should we pay attention to? 

Harari lectures as a Professor of history at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he specializes in world history, medieval history and military history.

Conan Doyle for the Defense

by Margalit Fox


In this true-crime procedural (featuring the creator of the famous Sherlock Holmes), Conan Doyle for the Defense chronicles the remarkable story in which Conan Doyle, himself, exonerates a German Jewish man wrongly convicted of the 1908 murder of a wealthy woman from Glasgow.

Rife with heroes and villains, and immersed in the science of Edwardian crime detection, this non-fiction mystery also reveals a watershed moment when reflexive prejudice was overcome with reason.

Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.
 
Dr. Kelly McGonigal is a health psychologist and lecturer at Stanford University. As a pioneer in the field of "science-help," her mission is to translate insights from psychology and neuroscience into practical strategies that support personal well-being and strengthen communities.

She is the author of several books, including the international bestseller “The Willpower Instinct” and her latest book “The Upside of Stress.” Her 2013 TED talk, "How to Make Stress Your Friend," is one of the Most Viewed TED talks of all time, with over 19 million views.

The Golden Legend by Nadeem Aslam

A brave, timely, searingly beautiful novel from the acclaimed author of The Blind Man's Garden: set in contemporary Pakistan, the story of a Muslim widow and her Christian neighbors whose community is consumed by violent religious intolerance. In his characteristically luminous prose, Nadeem Aslam has given us a lionhearted novel that reflects Pakistan's past and present in a single mirror, a story of corruption, resilience, and the disguises that are sometimes necessary for survival--a revelatory portrait of the human spirit.

Dueling Dragons: The Struggle for Ireland 1849-1875, with Marjorie Harshaw Robie
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Marjorie Harshaw Robie’s DUELING DRAGONS recounts key years of tumultuous Irish history through three prominent citizens on the front lines.

Inspired by a collection of ancestral diaries that survived intact through famine, revolution, generations of owners, a transoceanic voyage, a bank renovation, and a mistaken mailing to the American heartland, Marjorie Harshaw Robie’s new book DUELING DRAGONS tells the story of 25 tumultuous years in the history of Ireland through the words and actions of three men who lived on the front lines of revolution. 

DUELING DRAGONS is the second in Robie’s two-volume history of early and mid-19th century Ireland.  Her first, DWELLING PLACE OF DRAGONS, was published in 2006.  The new volume spans 1849 to 1875 when famine and emigration decimated the Irish population, religious conflicts divided Protestants and Catholics, and friendships and families were torn apart.

Robie’s unique perspective comes from familial diaries she found after an epic search, and through other first-hand accounts from newspapers and personal letters of the time. She incorporates the lives of three remarkable, interconnected men who struggled through much of the 19th century in a rapidly changing Ireland, and whose stories were told by their own hand, or the news of the day.

ABOUT MARJORIE HARSHAW ROBIE

Marjorie Robie.jpg

Marjorie Harshaw was born in Minneapolis to a family with Irish roots.  She attended Tufts University in Massachusetts, where she received a degree in English.  After graduation she married Eugene Robie and spent time in Virginia and West Virginia before moving to the historic town of Ipswich, Mass., where the couple raised children and Robie was a school teacher.  Robie’s interest in history led to years of service on the Ipswich Historical Commission, and a personal journey of genealogy that caught fire with the discovery of her ancestor’s diaries. The diaries formed the structure of two fascinating historical volumes, Dwelling Place of Dragons (2008) and the new Dueling Dragons (2018). Robie has discussed Irish history on national television in the U.S. and Ireland. She wrote the entry for James Harshaw in The Dictionary of Irish Biography, and had a weekly column on Irish history for the Newry Democrat in Northern Ireland.  She is a sought-after speaker on Irish history, ancestral research, and the eternal clash of politics and religion.

Wayland and the Mass Central Railroad
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

In 1870 Wayland voted overwhelmingly to invest in the new Central Massachusetts Railway Company if the company would connect Wayland to Boston, as well as to points west.   The Mass Central would run through the center of Wayland and through the center of 100 years of industrialization and urban growth, a historic transformation that has made us unrecognizable to our great-great-grandparents.  Did the residents of 1870 make a good decision?  How would Wayland be different today if that vote had gone the other way?  When did service on this line end (not a simple question), and why? 

 

 

Speaker Joel Angiolillo is a Weston resident who has been actively interested in the new, second life of the Mass Central as a recreation trail.

An American Marriage book coverAn American Marriage by Tayari Jones

Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn't commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy's time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy's conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.

Beantown Girls with Jane Healey
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

In this historically accurate and poignant account, set in 1944 against the backdrop of World War II, a young woman is forced to alter the path to the future she had envisioned for herself.

Fiona Denning had it all planned out: work at Boston City Hall until her fiancé returned from the war, then settle down in the suburbs. But when her husband-tobe is declared missing after being shot down over Germany, Fiona’s life is upended, forcing her to rethink everything she once believed about her future.

Determined to learn what happened to her betrothed, Fiona decides to go to Europe. She volunteers to be a Red Cross Clubmobile Girl, a prestigious assignment where women with education, personality and talent bring soldiers in the field symbols of warmth from home. Fiona recruits two of her best Boston girls to go along: Viviana, who is just fine leaving her secretarial job, and Dottie, a shy music teacher, whose natural talents are sure to bring hope and harmony to the young men fighting on the front lines. Though each woman possesses exceptional inner strength and outer charm, the trio is wholly unprepared for the daunting challenges posed by war and at times they must summon a kind of courage they never knew they had. 

This work of historical fiction was made possible by the real-life Red Cross Clubmobile Girls themselves. According to Healey, they were “fantastic writers who documented their experiences in meticulous and thoughtful ways.”

The Beantown Girls offers a glimpse of the “Greatest Generation” and the sacrifices of war from a female perspective, and once again brings to light their breathtaking courage, compassion and sacrifice during one of the most volatile times in our history. 

 

Jane Healey left a career in high tech to become a freelance writer. Her passion for historical fiction became her new career when her debut novel, The Saturday Evening Girls Club, was published in 2017. Based on the true story of a group of Jewish and Italian immigrant women in Boston’s North End at the turn of the twentieth century, the Amazon bestseller was hailed by Redbook as “a breathtaking ode to female empowerment and the American dream.” With the release of The Beantown Girls, she continues to fulfill her dream of writing about lesserknown stories of women in American history. She shares a home north of Boston with her husband, two daughters, and two cats, and when she’s not writing, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, running, cooking, and going to the beach.

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.
