Typical American

THIS GROUP WILL BE CONDUCTED VIA ZOOM.  TO PARTICIPATE, CONTACT AMOORE@MINLIB.NET.

As the immigrant Chang family begins to dream the American dream of self-invention, they move poignantly and ironically from people who disparage all that is "typical American" to people who might be seen as typically American themselves.  Gish Jen creates here a superbly engrossing story that resonates with wit and wisdom even as it challenges the reader to reconsider what a typical American might be today.

ONLINE Get Your Ducks in a Row: The Baby Boomers’ Guide to Estate Planning with Harry Margolis
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

This event will be held virtually. We will post instructions for accessing the live stream here.

If you’re over 55, you probably know you need an estate plan. What you might not know is how to create one. Questions about cost, confusion about options, and difficulty talking about subjects like disability and death can make the process of preparing for the future seem overwhelming. That’s probably why most people put it off—even though the results of doing nothing can sometimes be devastating.

What you need is a guide that explains the process clearly and comprehensively, in terms you can understand and actually use. Get Your Ducks in a Row: The Baby Boomers Guide to Estate Planning tells you everything you ever wanted (or perhaps never wanted) about estate planning.

Written by elder law and estate planning expert Attorney Harry S. Margolis, Get Your Ducks in a Row: The Baby Boomers Guide to Estate Planning takes you through the estate planning process step by step. Whether you’re currently creating a plan, getting ready to start, or looking for an explanation of documents you’ve already signed, this book will provide the information you need, including:

  • Answers to the most common estate planning questions
  • Common estate planning terms, demystified
  • The Five (or Six or Seven) Essential Documents everyone over 55 needs (and how to fill them out)
  • An overview of more complex estate planning scenarios
  • Help deciding when it’s time to consult an attorney
  • And more...

Featuring practical advice and easy-to-follow examples gleaned from the author’s 30-plus years of experience in elder law and estate planning, Get Your Ducks in a Row: The Baby Boomers Guide to Estate Planning will help you take control, make a plan, and ensure your family—and yourself—a secure and comfortable future.

 

 

Harry S. Margolis has been representing seniors, individuals with special needs and their families since he started ElderLawServices, the predecessor of Margolis & Bloom, in June 1987. Since then, he and the firm as a whole have helped thousands of clients pay for long-term care, grapple with the incapacity of a family member, and plan for safe and productive futures for their children and grandchildren.

Harry served as editor of The ElderLaw Report, a monthly newsletter for attorneys for three decades. His leadership in the field has been recognized by his peers in his selection as a Fellow of both the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the American College of Trust & Estate Counsel. He has been named a “Super Lawyer” since 2005 and in different years recognized as one of the top 100 attorneys in New England.  In 2015, Best Lawyers named him Best Lawyer in America in the practice of Elder Law and Trust and Estates., and he is the only elder law attorney to receive these honors.

But Mr. Margolis’ passion is explaining complex legal issues to consumers, to clients in his practice, to Massachusetts consumers through the information on this website and its blog, and nationally on two websites he founded: www.elderlawanswers.com and www.specialneedsanswers.com. Most recently he began answering consumer questions online at www.askharry.info. He strongly believes that the best legal solutions are achieved through the partnership of well-informed clients and attorneys who combine great technical expertise, experience and an ability to listen.

In 2012, Mr. Margolis ran (unsuccessfully) for Governor’s Council. He has served as an elected town meeting member in Brookline and on the town’s bicycle advisory committee. When not working, Mr. Margolis resides in Brookline with his wife, college age twins (when they're home) and dog of uncertain breed. He loves biking and traveling, both in the US and abroad.

The World That We Knew by Alice HoffmanThe World That We Knew book cover

Hanni Kohn knows she must send her twelve-year-old daughter away to save her from the Nazi regime. Ettie, the daughter of a renowned rabbi, offers hope of salvation when she creates a mystical Jewish creature, a rare and unusual golem, who is sworn to protect Lea. Once Ava is brought to life, she and Lea and Ettie become eternally entwined, their paths fated to cross, their fortunes linked. In Paris Lea meets her soulmate. From there she travels to a convent in western France known for its silver roses; then a school in a mountaintop village where three thousand Jews were saved. Meanwhile, Ettie is in hiding, waiting to become the fighter she's destined to be.

Great Presenters: Conrad Gees - Cuba - More than Classic American Cars & 1950s Nostalgia
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

There is truth in the statement, “Havana is a city frozen in time 60+ years ago,” but it is a characterization which can lead one to a false sense of sentimentality or condescension. Havana today is the outgrowth of the 1959 Revolution, the US Embargo, the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, which forced the inhabitants of this city, just 90 miles off the US coast, to develop in ways they can speak of with great pride, and in ways which leave them longing for more. I have concentrated on the sections of Havana known as “Habana Vieja” and “Centro Habana,” now United Nations World Heritage sites being renovated and brought back to life and
decided to document not only the buildings, but the people living in these sections of the city and their resilience and ingenuity.

Conrad Gees is a retired Wayland School Teacher who now has the time to pursue his love of photographing the world around him. His photography is aimed at trying to record what Henri Cartier Bresson described as “the decisive moment” - moments when “swift chance, disarray, wonder and experiment” lead to an image which speaks to more than the subject at hand, much as a poem can convey meaning far beyond a literal interpretation. He looks forward to viewers seeing this in his photographs - many of which are on display here on the Raytheon Room walls.

The Tempest: Should We Translate Shakespeare into Modern English?
7:00 PM - 8:45 PM

The Tempest is playing at the Vokes Theater in Wayland from May 1st to May 16th.  The Vokes Theater will join an un-countably long list of theaters going back over 400 years that have performed The Tempest since 1611.

However, with each passing year, the English we speak today is diverging more and more from the Elizabethan English of the early 17th century. Words and expressions have disappeared or changed meaning. Cultural references have been lost. If you were transported to 17th century London, the locals would not be able to easily understand you, nor you them. These language changes can baffle, and worse, mislead, the modern playgoer. 

So should we translate Shakespeare into modern English?

Using examples from The Tempest, Joel Angiolillo will trace some of the language changes that have occurred since Shakespeare's time, discuss the pros and cons of translating Shakespeare, and give examples of how we could create such a translation. Please join us to learn how our language has evolved, and enhance your appreciation of The Tempest.

Joel Angiolillo has a BA in linguistics at Amherst College and a PhD in Cognition and Communication at the University of Chicago. He applied his interest in how we understand and use speech as a telecommunications engineer at AT&T and Verizon.

Sunday Sips & Sounds: Julian Loida on Vibraphone
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Stop by the library to relax and enjoy a free concert in the Rotunda, and a free cup of coffee or tea during our monthly Sunday Sips & Sounds concert series, January through May.

Called a “thought provoker” by Boston Voyager, Julian Loida is a Boston-based percussionist, composer, and producer. Loida’s musical curiosity and open-mindedness has propelled him towards a wide-range of sounds, genres, and artistic endeavors. He’s performed jazz, folk, and classical, collaborating with dancers, visual artists, songwriters/composers, and musicians of all stripes. The thirst to participate in and experience this range of sounds is partly a product of Loida’s synesthesia. Music is a full- body experience for him, with sounds often invoking involuntary sensations of color, texture, or even taste.

Loida often writes and arranges for his projects and ensembles (the Cuban/Brazilian band INA~, jazz quintet Mojuba´, chamber-folk band Night Tree), and his music has been featured in film. His interdisciplinary projects aim at breaking down artistic barriers. The evening-length solo-project Recital of Dedications incorporates speech, visual media, and music into a series of dedications to individuals, historical moments, and more. In 2018, he released the album Bach LIVE!, featuring J.S. Bach’s music arranged for percussion. Loida’s upcoming 2019 release, Wallflower, marks his solo-album debut, and also provides the clearest distillation of his voice as a composer to date.

Loida has toured internationally as a featured artist at Korro¨, Sweden’s largest folk music festival, and played some of the most prestigious music festivals in the U.S. such as Spoleto, New World Festival, the Exit Zero jazz festival, Caramoor American Roots Festival, and Round Top Music Festival. He has performed with groups such as Alarm Will Sound, the Callithumpian Consort, and the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra.

As an educator, Loida shares his scores and deep rhythmic knowledge with students of all ages. In 2017, he received his Master’s Degree in Classical Percussion from New England Conservatory. More information can be found at http://www.julianloida.com/.

Sunday Sips & Sounds is supported in part by a grant from the Wayland Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek

Pilgrim at Tinker Creek is the story of a dramatic year in Virginia's Roanoke Valley. Annie Dillard sets out to see what she can see. What she sees are astonishing incidents of "beauty tangled in a rapture with violence."  Her personal narrative highlights one year's exploration on foot in the Virginia region through which Tinker Creek runs. In the summer, Dillard stalks muskrats in the creek and contemplates wave mechanics; in the fall, she watches a monarch butterfly migration and dreams of Arctic caribou. She unties a snake skin, witnesses a flood, and plays King of the Meadow with a field of grasshoppers. The result is an exhilarating tale of nature and its seasons.

Derrida and Deconstruction - or why 'fake news' will never simply go away
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

The program seeks to introduce the community to the work of Jacques Derrida and to what has come to be called 'deconstruction' through the prism of the ongoing debate concerning 'fake news,' specifically as it pertains to political discourse.

We will attempt to demonstrate why this problem is not susceptible to technological, pedagogical or psychological explanations or solutions. 'Fake news' is, in short, here to stay - even if this in no way leaves us powerless to combat it. We will consider how Derrida's work opens ways for contesting fake news and its implications for our own political moment.

The program will assume no familiarity with Derrida's work or the tradition from which it arises. It will instead start with every day questions and attempt to show how serious contemplation of these questions inevitably leads to an engagement with questions very much at stake in Derrida's work specifically, and 'deconstruction' in general.

Ethan Wells, a one time student of Jacques Derrida, was most recently a Ph.D student in French literature at Boston College. He is interested in making Derrida's work and its relevance to our own moment as accessible as possible to a wider audience.

Archaeology West of Boston: Finding Evidence of Native American Culture
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

Native Americans have lived in southern New England for 10,000 years or more.  This lecture will discuss how archaeologists learn about ancient peoples from several lines of evidence, including stone tools, ceramics, and the remains of animals and plants found during excavations, and how dates are obtained from these materials. The lecture will describe several archaeological projects carried out in Metrowest communities.  Artifacts excavated in Wayland will be available for viewing. 

Tonya Largy is an archaeological consultant specializing in the analysis of plant and animal remains from archaeological sites.  She is also associated with the Zooarchaeology Laboratory of the Peabody Museum, Harvard University.  She has been active in local archaeology since the late 1970’s and has been involved in numerous excavations in the Sudbury/Assabet/Concord River basin, the broader northeast, and as far away as Pakistan.  Ms. Largy is a member of the Wayland Historical Commission and Coordinator of the Wayland Archaeology Group.  She is also a Past President of the Massachusetts Archaeological Society.

American Spy book coverAmerican Spy by Lauren Wilkinson

Written in the form of a lengthy missive from a mother to her young sons, this intriguing first novel blends literary fiction with a Cold War-era spy story. When FBI special agent Marie is forced to flee the country with her children, she begins writing down her experiences as an African American female spy during the 1980s, when she was assigned to establish intimacy with Thomas Sankara, the hugely popular Burkina Faso president. Marie's account draws out the conflict between her government's directives and her own intense attraction to the charismatic Marxist leader.

Picturing Political Power with Professor Allison Lange
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

For as long as women have battled for equitable political representation in America, those battles have been defined by images—whether illustrations, engravings, photographs, or colorful chromolithograph posters. Some of these pictures have been flattering, many have been condescending, and others downright incendiary. They have drawn upon prevailing cultural ideas of women’s perceived roles and abilities and often have been circulated with pointedly political objectives.

In her examination of the fights that led to the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, Allison K. Lange explores how suffragists pioneered one of the first extensive visual campaigns in modern American history. She shows how pictures, from early engravings and photographs to colorful posters, proved central to suffragists’ efforts to change expectations for women, fighting back against the accepted norms of their times. In seeking to transform notions of womanhood and win the right to vote, white suffragists emphasized the compatibility of voting and motherhood, while Sojourner Truth and other leading suffragists of color employed pictures to secure respect and authority.

Picturing Political Power demonstrates the centrality of visual politics to American women’s campaigns throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, revealing the power of images to change history.

 

Allison K. Lange is an assistant professor of history at the Wentworth Institute of Technology. She received her PhD in history from Brandeis University. Lange’s book, Picturing Political Power: Images in the Women’s Suffrage Movement, will be published in May 2020 by the University of Chicago Press. The book focuses on the ways that women’s rights activists and their opponents used images to define gender and power during the suffrage movement.

Various institutions have supported her work, including the National Endowment for the Humanities, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Library of Congress, and American Antiquarian Society. Lange has presented her work at conferences such as the American Historical Association, Organization of American Historians, and Berkshire Conference of Women Historians. Her writing has appeared in Imprint, The Atlantic, and The Washington Post.

Lange also engages in public history. She has worked with the National Women’s History Museum and curated exhibitions for the Boston Public Library’s Leventhal Map Center. In preparation for the 2020 centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment, she is curating exhibitions at the Massachusetts Historical Society and Harvard’s Schlesinger Library.

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.
