Armchair Travel: Ethiopia with John Leupold
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Situated in the Horn of Africa, Ethiopia is an intriguing mix of ancient and modern, and a land of many superlatives. It has been named the most welcoming country for tourists. It is also the home of man’s ancestors, the land where coffee originated, and the source of the Nile River. The only African nation never to be colonized, Ethiopian offers a unique and fascinating cultural diversity with its 80 tribes.  There are many dazzling sights; its unique 800-year old rock hewn churches, the 400-year old castles of Gonder, referred to as Africa’s Camelot, lush highland mountain scenery, surging rivers and spectacular waterfalls, and unique wildlife.

 

 

 

Wayland born and raised, John Leupold visits Ethiopia regularly & leads tours there with his company, CHAMPACA JOURNEYS. He finds Ethiopia fascinating and enjoys sharing his insights and photography.

TED Walks! A TED Discussion and (Optional) Walking Group

"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 10:40. 
 
 
 
For February we'll view and discuss Dr. Steven Pinker's 2018 talk - Is the World Getting Better or Worse? A Look at the Numbers 
 
Was 2017 really the "worst year ever," as some would have us believe? In his analysis of recent data on homicide, war, poverty, pollution and more, psychologist Steven Pinker finds that we're doing better now in every one of them when compared with 30 years ago. But progress isn't inevitable, and it doesn't mean everything gets better for everyone all the time, Pinker says. Instead, progress is problem-solving, and we should look at things like climate change and nuclear war as problems to be solved, not apocalypses in waiting. "We will never have a perfect world, and it would be dangerous to seek one," he says. "But there's no limit to the betterments we can attain if we continue to apply knowledge to enhance human flourishing."
 
Steven Pinker is a professor of cognitive science (the study of the human mind) who writes about language, mind and human nature.

Self-Portrait with Boy : A Novel

Self-Portrait with Boy by Rachel Lyon

A compulsively readable and electrifying debut about an ambitious young female artist who accidentally photographs a boy falling to his death--an image that could jumpstart her career, but would also devastate her most intimate friendship. Set in early 90s Brooklyn on the brink of gentrification, Self-Portrait with Boy is a provocative commentary about the emotional dues that must be paid on the road to success, and a powerful exploration of the complex terrain of female friendship.

Coyote Continent
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

 

Coyotes are the new top predator in the Northeast.  They were never found east of the Mississippi River until after 1900.  As they migrated north and east up into Canada, they inter-bred with what was available - Wolves.  The coyotes we see in our backyards are actually hybrid coyotes and more closely resemble large German Shepherds.  These animals are larger, stronger, and can hunt in both forest and open plain habitats, while their western cousins will only hunt in open plains.  Participants will learn about the eastward expansion and hybridization of Coyotes to our region.

Great Presenters - Dr. Emma Teng: Forbidden Love: Chinese & White Mixed Families in the 19th Cent.
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

With interracial marriage increasingly common in America today, how much do we know about the past histories of mixed families in an earlier era? When the first Chinese immigrants came to this country in the 19th century, some fell in love and married American women. Some of these mixed families settled here, and others in China. What kind of obstacles and reception did they face in a time when interracial marriage was largely taboo, on both sides of the Pacific?

Emma J. Teng is the T.T. and Wei Fong Chao Professor of Asian Civilizations at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the author of Eurasian: Mixed Identities in the United States, China, and Hong Kong, 1842-1943, published by the University of California Press.

FRONTLINE: Egypt in Crisis with Reporter Charles M. Sennott
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Gain an understanding of the political and historical climate in which our 2019 Wayland Reads novel, Live from Cairo, takes place. We'll view FRONTLINE's 2013 film, Egypt in Crisis (54 min) and then hear from reporter Charles M. Sennott about his experience on the ground in Cairo in 2011.
 
About the film: 
 
FRONTLINE and GlobalPost's reporter Charles M. Sennott go inside the Egyptian revolution, tracing how what began as a youth movement to topple a dictator evolved into an opportunity for the Muslim Brotherhood to seemingly find the political foothold it had sought for decades — and then why it all fell apart. Were the Brothers ever really in charge? Or was the Egyptian “deep state” in control all along?  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
About Charles M. Sennott:
 
Charles Sennott is the Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Editor of The GroundTruth Project. 
 
He is an award-winning correspondent, best-selling author and editor with 30 years of experience in international, national and local journalism. A leading social entrepreneur in new media, Sennott started GroundTruth in 2014 and in 2017 launched the non-profit organization's new, local reporting initiative, Report for America. 
 
Reporting on the front lines of wars and insurgencies in at least 20 countries, including the post 9-11 conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq and the 2011 Arab Spring, Sennott began his career in local news covering cops, courts and municipal government. Sennott’s deep experience reporting led him to dedicate himself to supporting and training the next generation of journalists to tell the most important stories of our time.
 
Sennott is also the co-founder of GlobalPost, an acclaimed international news website. Previously, Sennott worked for many years as a reporter at the New York Daily News and then the Boston Globe, where he became Bureau Chief for the Middle East and Europe, and a leader of the paper's international coverage from 1997 to 2005. Sennott has also served as a correspondent for PBS FRONTLINE and the PBS NewsHour. He has contributed news analysis to the BBC, CNN, NPR, MSNBC and others. He is a graduate of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University.

The Underground Railroad

In Whitehead's rendering, the Underground Railroad of the early 19th century is a literal subterranean tunnel with tracks, trains, and conductors, ferrying runaways into darkness and, occasionally, into light. Throughout the book, Cora faces unthinkable horrors, and her survival depends entirely on her resilience. The story is literature at its finest and history at its most barbaric.  Winner of the 2016 National Book Award and the 2017 Pulitzer Prize.

The Softer Side of Celtic with Jeff Snow
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Join us for an interactive concert in the Library Rotunda!

Celtic Culture is woven deeply throughout the fabric of America and especially so in the Northeast. The Softer Side of Celtic combines the music, stories and a wee bit of history from Scotland, Ireland and England into a concert that will inspire singing, laughing, clapping and perhaps a bit of foot stomping. 

Learn the story of John Hunt who came to America in 1855, never returned to Ireland, and never saw his family again. Their only communication was the annual family letter that told John the family news. The letters were discovered in the 1970's and became the foundation for the Ballad of Kilkelly Ireland. You can learn more and read the first and last of the series of letters at  http://www.jeffsnow.net/kilkelly.html

Great Presenters - Joan Blair: From the Streets to Galleries - Japanese Woodblock Prints at the MFA
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, has the largest collection of Japanese woodblock prints outside of Japan - almost 50,000.  Though considered "everyday" posters in Japan in the 19th century, they came to be appreciated by Western artists of the time and collected by an eccentric group of Bostonians who subsequently donated them to the Museum. Some 100 years later the collections were finally prepared for display by a dedicated group of volunteers. Joan will speak about the prints, her experience on that team and how it opened the door to a post-retirement career as a Museum of Fine Arts docent. 

Joan Blair is a docent at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She studied East Asian history as an undergraduate but took a detour and spent 30 years in the computer industry. A particular interest was introducing computers to libraries. A trip to Japan re-awakened her interest in that culture and the surprising opportunity to use her knowledge of Japan and computers to catalog the Japanese woodblock print collection at the MFA.

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.

The Golden Legend

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 Margaret 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.
