Dystopian/Sci-Fi Book Group June Meeting
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

June Meeting Dystopian/Sci-FI Book Group

Thursday, 7pm-8pm, June 17th, 2021, via Zoom

Join us for a lively discussion of Semiosis by Sue Burke. Books are available at the Circulation Desk at the library.

Email ekatz@minlib.net for Zoom Link.

In the not-too-distant future, with Earth facing blight and war, a group of 50 space travelers endure a 158-year hibernation to reach the planet Pax. There they hope to create a harmonious society attuned to nature and devoid of Earth's contentious politics. While deciphering the planet's secrets, the colonists discover that the predators on the planet number beyond various carnivores and include sentient plants that view the humans as both enemies and allies. With a different character narrating each chapter, this multigenerational novel has the feel of linked short stories, and the vast cast can seem, at times, overwhelming. But Burke's world building is exceptional, and her ability to combine the intricacies of colonization with the science of botany and theories of mutualism and predation is astounding. Ecological science fiction normally takes its cues from Earth-bound issues, such as climate change, food scarcity, and global catastrophe. Burke's ambitious debut takes to the stars and offers a thought-provoking look into the politics of survival.--Clark, Craig Copyright 2018 Booklist

Meets monthly on the 3rd Thursday. You are welcome to attend for some or all of our monthly sessions. Sign up to receive the ZOOM link via email. Ages 16+

Our June selection is Tomorrow Will Be Different: Love, Loss, and the Fight for Trans Equality by Sarah McBride:

Before she became the first transgender person to speak at a national political convention in 2016 at the age of twenty-six, Sarah McBride struggled with the decision to come out—not just to her family but to the students of American University, where she was serving as student body president. She’d known she was a girl from her earliest memories, but it wasn’t until the Facebook post announcing her truth went viral that she realized just how much impact her story could have on the country.

Four years later, McBride was one of the nation’s most prominent transgender activists, walking the halls of the White House, advocating inclusive legislation, and addressing the country in the midst of a heated presidential election. She had also found her first love and future husband, Andy, a trans man and fellow activist, who complemented her in every way . . . until cancer tragically intervened.

Informative, heartbreaking, and profoundly empowering, Tomorrow Will Be Different is McBride’s story of love and loss and a powerful entry point into the LGBTQ community’s battle for equal rights and what it means to be openly transgender. From issues like bathroom access to health care to gender in America, McBride weaves the important political and cultural milestones into a personal journey that will open hearts and change minds.

As McBride urges: “We must never be a country that says there’s only one way to love, only one way to look, and only one way to live.”

The fight for equality and freedom has only just begun.

Catch Us When We Fall Book Launch!
7:00 PM

Join Wayland author Juliette Fay to celebrate the publication of her latest novel, Catch Us When We Fall!

[Exact time and Location TBD]

On her own since the age of eighteen, Cass Macklin dated brilliant, troubled Ben McGreavy, convinced he was the smartest person she’d ever known. They partied their way through their twenties, slowly descending into a bleak world of binge-drinking and broken promises, inebriated for most of a decade. Now Ben is dead, and Cass is broke, homeless, scared…and pregnant.

Determined to have a healthy pregnancy and raise Ben’s baby, Cass has to find a way to stop drinking and build a stable life for herself and her child. But with no money, skills, or sober friends or family, the task seems insurmountable. At wit’s end, Cass turns to the only person with the means to help her: Ben’s brother Scott, third basemen for the Boston Red Sox, a man with a temper and problems of his own.

The two make a deal that neither one of them is sure they can live up to. As Cass struggles to take control of her life and to ask for help when she needs it, Scott begins to realize there’s a life for him beyond the baseball diamond.

By turns heartbreaking and humorous, with its message that change is possible, that forgiveness can be freely given, and that life, though imperfect, is worth embracing, Catch Us When We Fall is a story of human connectedness and hope.

Juliette Fay headshotJuliette Fay is the bestselling author of six novels, including Catch Us When We Fall, City of Flickering Light and The Tumbling Turner Sisters, a USA Today bestseller and Costco Pennie’s Book Club Pick. Previous novels include The Shortest Way Home, one of Library Journal’s Top 5 Best Books of 2012: Women’s Fiction; Deep Down True, short-listed for the 2011 Women’s Fiction award by the American Library Association; and Shelter Me, a 2009 Massachusetts Book Award “Must-Read Book” and an Indie Next pick. Juliette is a graduate of Boston College and Harvard University, and lives in Massachusetts with her family.

Boston Marathon: History by the Mile with Paul Clerici
7:00 PM - 8:30 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.

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.
