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.

Great Presenters: Conrad Gees - Cuba - More than Classic American Cars & 1950s Nostalgia
7:30 PM - 8:45 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.  Hi 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.

White Freedom: The Racial History of an Idea with Prof. Tyler Stovall
7:00 PM - 8:45 PM

The racist legacy behind the Western idea.

The era of the Enlightenment, which gave rise to our modern conceptions of freedom and democracy, was also the height of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. America, a nation founded on the principle of liberty, is also a nation built on African slavery, Native American genocide, and systematic racial discrimination. White Freedom traces the complex relationship between freedom and race from the eighteenth century to today, revealing how being free has meant being white.

Tyler Stovall explores the intertwined histories of racism and freedom in France and the United States, the two leading nations that have claimed liberty as the heart of their national identities. He explores how French and American thinkers defined freedom in racial terms and conceived of liberty as an aspect and privilege of whiteness. He discusses how the Statue of Liberty—a gift from France to the United States and perhaps the most famous symbol of freedom on Earth—promised both freedom and whiteness to European immigrants. Taking readers from the Age of Revolution to today, Stovall challenges the notion that racism is somehow a paradox or contradiction within the democratic tradition, demonstrating how white identity is intrinsic to Western ideas about liberty. Throughout the history of modern Western liberal democracy, freedom has long been white freedom.

A major work of scholarship that is certain to draw a wide readership and transform contemporary debates, White Freedom provides vital new perspectives on the inherent racism behind our most cherished beliefs about freedom, liberty, and human rights.

Tyler Stovall is professor of history and dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Fordham University. His books include Transnational France: The Modern History of a Universal Nation, Paris Noir: African Americans in the City of Light, and The Rise of the Paris Red Belt

Mindfulness Class for Preschoolers with Adult

Some activities are: a kindness rock, puppets, chime bells, animal breathing exercises, friendly wishes heart bell and more. For children ages 3-6, with parent/caregiver.

The Portrait of a Lady  The Portrait of a Lady by Henry James

In this portrait of a "young woman affronting her destiny," Henry James created one of his most magnificent heroines, and a story of intense poignancy. When Isabel Archer, a beautiful, spirited American, is brought to Europe by her wealthy aunt, it is expected that she will soon marry. But Isabel, resolved to enjoy her freedom, does not hesitate to turn down two eligible suitors. Then she finds herself irresistibly drawn to the charming and cultivated Gilbert Osmond. Isabel, however, soon discovers the cruelty and stifling darkness beneath Gilbert's civilized veneer.

Our February selection is: Nickel And Dimed: On (Not) Getting By In America by Barbara Ehrenreich

In this now classic work, Barbara Ehrenreich, our sharpest and most original social critic, goes "undercover" as an unskilled worker to reveal the dark side of American prosperity.

Millions of Americans work full time, year round, for poverty-level wages. In 1998, Barbara Ehrenreich decided to join them. She was inspired in part by the rhetoric surrounding welfare reform, which promised that a job―any job―can be the ticket to a better life. But how does anyone survive, let alone prosper, on $6 an hour?

To find out, Ehrenreich left her home, took the cheapest lodgings she could find, and accepted whatever jobs she was offered. Moving from Florida to Maine to Minnesota, she worked as a waitress, a hotel maid, a cleaning woman, a nursing-home aide, and a Wal-Mart sales clerk. She lived in trailer parks and crumbling residential motels. Very quickly, she discovered that no job is truly "unskilled," that even the lowliest occupations require exhausting mental and muscular effort. She also learned that one job is not enough; you need at least two if you int to live indoors.

Nickel and Dimed reveals low-rent America in all its tenacity, anxiety, and surprising generosity―a land of Big Boxes, fast food, and a thousand desperate stratagems for survival. Read it for the smoldering clarity of Ehrenreich's perspective and for a rare view of how "prosperity" looks from the bottom. You will never see anything―from a motel bathroom to a restaurant meal―in quite the same way again.

The Power Of Protest Images In The Black Freedom Struggle
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join Dr. Brenna Greer for a virtual tour of the significant images, protest signs, and social media posts that have come out of the civil rights movement and Black Lives Matter movement. Since World War II, African Americans’ fight for civil rights, social equality, and equal justice has increasingly unfolded through visual media. The question of Black freedom has been - and continues to be - put before the public through photos and video images. Americans in the 1960s saw footage of civil rights marches, sit-ins, and boycotts in newspapers or on the nightly news. In the 21st century, social media and smartphones mean that news organizations no longer control which images of Black protest or suffering circulate widely. Last spring, the nation erupted after a video went viral showing Minneapolis police killing George Floyd. Many have pointed to the resulting images of protest as evidence of something -- the question is what. Explore the power of Black protest images – past and present – as representations of Black life in the United States and as tools in African Americans’ ongoing quest for freedom. 

This event is made possible in collaboration with the Merrimack Valley Libraries Working Towards Social Justice. 

Dr. Brenna Greer is an Associate Professor of History focusing on race, gender, and culture in the 20th century at Wellesley College. Her first book, Represented: The Black Imagemakers Who Reimagined African American Citizenship, examines the historical circumstances that made the media representation of black citizenship good business in the post-World War II era. She is currently at work on her second book, which examines the postwar development of black commercial publishing and its significance within U.S. culture and black life.

The Rise of Wolf 8 book CoverThe Rise of Wolf 8 by Rick McIntyre 

Yellowstone National Park was once home to an abundance of wild wolves—but park rangers killed the last of their kind in the 1920s. Decades later, the rangers brought them back, with the first wolves arriving from Canada in 1995.

This is the incredible true story of one of those wolves.

Wolf 8 struggles at first—he is smaller than the other pups, and often bullied—but soon he bonds with an alpha female whose mate was shot. An unusually young alpha male, barely a teenager in human years, Wolf 8 rises to the occasion, hunting skillfully, and even defending his family from the wolf who killed his father. But soon he faces a new opponent: his adopted son, who mates with a violent alpha female. Can Wolf 8 protect his valley without harming his protégé?

Great Presenters: John Toto - The Freemasons: History, Secrets and Future
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

The idea of Freemasonry conjures up all sorts of images, mostly from popular culture.  This fraternal organization has its origins in the stonemason guilds of the 16th Century.  Its tenants are timeless:  Brotherly Love, Relief and Truth.  Some define it as an organization of men symbolically applying principles of architecture and masonry to the science and art of character building.  The groundwork for America's founding was laid by the cornerstone of Freemasonry.  What is it about this organization that intrigues many today?  The secrets it keeps?  The Knights Templar link?  The storied history and the great men who have been and are Freemasons?  What is its place in society today?

A Mason for 10 years, member of Joseph Warren-Soley Lodge in Lincoln and a Wayland resident for 26 years, John Toto will enlighten attendees with a talk to understand this so-called secret society.  In Masonic circles Mr. Toto's title is Right Worshipful.  He is presently the District Deputy Grand Master of the 14th District overseeing seven Lodges and over 1,000 Freemasons.  Mr. Toto is a 32 Degree Scottish Rite Mason, a member of the Shriners, and a member of several York Rite bodies including Knights Templar.

Exit West Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

As featured in the Skimm, on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Fresh Air, PBS Newshour, the cover of the New York Times Book Review, and more, an astonishingly visionary love story that imagines the forces that drive ordinary people from their homes into the uncertain embrace of new lands.  In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet--sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors--doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As the violence escalates, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through. . . . Exit West follows these remarkable characters as they emerge into an alien and uncertain future, struggling to hold on to each other, to their past, to the very sense of who they are. Profoundly intimate and powerfully inventive, it tells an unforgettable story of love, loyalty, and courage that is both completely of our time and for all time.

Medicinal Herb Gardening: What should I grow?
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The right herbal “superstars” can treat common ailments like colds and flu, inflammation, minor cuts, infections, pain, muscle spasms, anxiety, poor digestion, and insomnia. But where should you begin? How do you even start a medicinal herb garden? It’s a question many people ask, normally out of fear of getting it wrong, or growing something that could poison their family.

Starting your herb garden isn’t as overwhelming as you may think—and spending time in a medicinal herb garden is healing by its very existence!

Get an early start on your spring gardening with Velya and Ehris of the Grounded Goodwife! 

Ehris Urban, owner of Woodbury, CT’s Grounded Holistic Wellness, believes, “if you’re grounded, you can navigate even the bumpiest roads in peace.” She grew up in a family passionate about holistic medicine.

She became interested in Reiki as a teenager and  attained Reiki Master certification at age 17. Ehris is also a certified Ingham Method reflexologist.

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.

A High Wind in Jamaica  A High Wind in Jamaica by Richard Hughes

Richard Hughes's celebrated short novel is a masterpiece of concentrated narrative. Its dreamlike action begins among the decayed plantation houses and overwhelming natural abundance of late nineteenth-century Jamaica, before moving out onto the high seas, as Hughes tells the story of a group of children thrown upon the mercy of a crew of down-at-the-heel pirates. A tale of seduction and betrayal, of accommodation and manipulation, of weird humor and unforeseen violence, this classic of twentieth-century literature is above all an extraordinary reckoning with the secret reasons and otherworldly realities of childhood.

Against Civility with Alex Zamalin
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

The first history of racial injustice to examine how civility and white supremacy are linked, and a call for citizens who care about social justice to abandon civility and practice civic radicalism

The idea and practice of civility has always been wielded to silence dissent, repress political participation, and justify violence upon people of color. Although many progressives today are told that we need to be more polite and thoughtful, less rancorous and angry, when we talk about race in America, civility maintains rather than disrupts racial injustice.

Spanning two hundred years, Zamalin’s accessible blend of intellectual history, political biography, and contemporary political criticism shows that civility has never been neutral in its political uses and impacts. The best way to tackle racial inequality is through “civic radicalism,” an alternative to civility found in the actions of Black radical leaders including Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman, Ida B. Wells, Martin Luther King Jr., James Baldwin, Malcolm X, and Audre Lorde. Civic radicals shock and provoke people. They name injustice and who is responsible for it. They protest, march, strike, boycott, and mobilize collectively rather than form alliances with those who fundamentally oppose them.

In Against Civility, citizens who care deeply about racial and socioeconomic equality will see that they need to abandon this concept of discreet politeness when it comes to racial justice and instead more fully support disruptive actions and calls for liberation, which have already begun with movements like #MeToo, the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, and Black Lives Matter.

Alex Zamalin is the director of the African American Studies Program and Assistant Professor of political science at the University of Detroit Mercy. His areas of expertise include African American political thought, American politics, and political theory. He is the author of several books including African American Political Thought and American Culture: The Nation’s Struggle for Racial Justice (2015), Struggle on Their Minds: The Political Thought of African American Resistance (2017), Antiracism: An Introduction (2019) and Black Utopia: The History of an Idea from Black Nationalism to Afrofuturism (2019.) Zamalin’s essays and reviews have appeared in various edited book collections and in peer-reviewed journals such as New Political Science, Contemporary Political Theory, Political Theory, and Women’s Studies Quarterly.

Great Presenters: Peter Curran - (Un)Blocked: Breaking Barriers to Creativity
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

When creative block strikes, what can one do? How can one get un-blocked? Drawing on over fifteen years in the visual arts classroom, this presentation identifies a collection of strategies for scaffolding the creative process to achieve authentic and meaningful outcomes. During this active discussion, we will examine the notion of creativity, share our own stories, admire some recent artwork by our Wayland Middle School students, and perhaps make some drawings of our own! You will leave with a handful of new tools for your own creative toolkit, as well as a deeper appreciation for the creative power of our community's young artists. 

Pete Curran (he/him) has been teaching visual art since 2004, with nearly ten years at a preK-12 special education school in Lancaster, MA and, currently, at Wayland Middle School in Wayland, MA.

Pete studied art education at Syracuse University (BFA, 2002) and Massachusetts College of Art and Design (MSAE, 2009). He has taught at all levels, and has worked with a variety of statewide and national arts organizations. Most recently, he served as the National Art Education Association (NAEA) Middle Level Division Director (2017-19), as a lead ambassador for the DESE's 2019 Arts Frameworks professional development series, and as a member of the Massachusetts Art Education Association (MAEA) Equity, Diversity & Inclusion taskforce. 

Pete is a practicing artist, blending design, sculpture, video and photography. He lives in Wayland with his wife and two daughters. You can follow his work with the Wayland Middle School visual art program at www.wmsartlab.org or @wmsartlab.

I Give It to You : A Novel  I Give It to You by Valerie Martin

A timeless story of family, war, art, and betrayal set around an ancient, ancestral home in the Tuscan countryside from bestselling novelist Valerie Martin. When Jan, an American academic, rents an apartment in a Tuscan villa for the summer, she plans to spend her break writing a biography of Mussolini. Instead, she finds herself captivated by her hostess, the elegant, acerbic Beatrice. Beatrice's family ties to Villa Chiara and the land on which it stands extend back generations, although the family has fallen on hard times since WWII and the fate of the property is uncertain. But it is rich in stories, and Jan becomes intrigued by an account of Beatrice's uncle, who was mysteriously killed on the grounds at the conclusion of the war. Did he die at the hands of the invading Americans, or was he murdered by his countrymen for his political opinions? Beatrice, a student of American literature, proves to be a beguiling storyteller and a sharp critic; she and Jan keep in touch after that summer, and a fierce friendship forms. As the years go on, Jan finds she can't help but write Beatrice's story, a decision that opens up questions of ownership and loyalty and leads to a major betrayal. Thrumming with tension, informed by history, and exploring themes of duty, destiny, art, and friendship, I Give It to You is Valerie Martin at the top of her game.

Great Presenters: Rebecca Smoler - Let’s Talk about Race and Equity in the Suburbs
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

For many folks who live in affluent, predominantly White suburban communities like Wayland, we are often taught that it is taboo or offensive to discuss race. Even when wanting to engage in  this topic, one might avoid it for fear of saying the wrong thing or being labeled as racist. However, when we avoid these conversations, racial inequities persist within our community. In this interactive workshop, Rebecca will present strategies for engaging in conversations on race and racism as well as provide resources on antiracism efforts in Wayland and the metro-west area. 

Rebecca Smoler is a facilitator at Initiatives for Developing Equity and Achievement for Students (IDEAS) and a public school curriculum coordinator. She is also the co-founder of Wayland Community for Social Justice.

A Glass of Blessings : A Novel  A Glass of Blessings by Barbara Pym

Barbara Pym's early novel takes us into 1950s England, as seen through the funny, engaging, yearning eyes of a restless housewife Wilmet Forsyth is bored. Bored with the everyday routine of her life. Bored with teatimes filled with local gossip. Bored with her husband, Rodney, a civil servant who dotes on her. But on her thirty-third birthday, Wilmet's conventional life takes a turn when she runs into the handsome brother of her close friend. Attractive and enigmatic, Piers Longridge is a mystery Wilmet is determined to solve. Rather than settling down, he lived in Portugal, then returned to England for a series of odd jobs. Driven by a fantasy of romance, the sheltered, naïve Englishwoman sets out to seduce Piers--only to discover that he isn't the man she thinks he is. As cozy as sharing a cup of tea with an old friend, A Glass of Blessings explores timeless themes of sex, marriage, religion, and friendship while exposing our flaws and foibles with wit, compassion, and a generous helping of love.

Great Presenters: Ken Sawyer - First Parish Ministers and the Changes in Wayland Over Time
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

Tales have often been told of the early centuries of life in what is now Wayland, and of the town church and its ministers before disestablishment (1833). Ken Sawyer, 29th minister of the church, now retired, will recall them again, more briefly, and then move on to the life of the town and of First Parish in the years since, featuring tales of the clergy, while they were in Wayland, before, and after.

In 1974, Ken Sawyer and his family moved to Wayland from northern Maine, where Ken began his Unitarian Universalist ministry. He served the First Parish in Wayland for the next 38 years, and is now minister emeritus. He graduated from Amherst College and Harvard Divinity School, with a special interest in Massachusetts congregational history and in the ministry. He served on several national UU committees and for 12 years taught preaching at Harvard.

Great Presenters: John Landry - The Emerging Existential Threat of AI-Driven Cyberwarfare
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

Every day businesses, governments, and individuals worldwide encounter advanced cyber-attacks targeting their software and computer networks, a digital infrastructure that we are all increasingly reliant on for our financial well-being, our livelihoods, our politics, our health and safety, and by extension, our lives!  These attacks range from teen-age hackers using commodity malware to guess your passwords to state-sponsored covert government agency attacks persisting undetected for months, maybe years, driven by highly skilled human actors.  While the techniques used today have become more and more technically sophisticated, “ThreatTech” is just beginning to exploit the enormous power of artificial intelligence (AI).  This is a “step-function” change to the threat landscape exponentially increasing the reach, stealth, and destructive power of sophisticated nefarious human actors.  John Landry returns to take us on a deep dive into this new world of “Fortified-with-AI” Cyberwar and Cybercrime – what it is, why it is so important and what we can do to defend against it!

John Landry has been a leader in the software business since the word 'software' was conceived. A 40+ year veteran of the industry, John has served as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at software leaders Lotus Development, Dun & Bradstreet Software, Cullinet Software and McCormack & Dodge as well as the Founder/Chairman/CTO of six successful startups.  Starting 20 years ago he began investing in software startups and has since invested in over 80 companies and served on the Board of Directors of over 40.  In 2018 the Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council (MassTLC) awarded John the organization’s highest honor, the Commonwealth Award, for a lifetime of commitment to technology innovation and inclusion. Landry is currently Lecturer in Entrepreneurship and ex-Trustee at his alma mater, the #1-ranked entrepreneurship college in the US, Babson College.
