Radio Free Vermont : A Fable of ResistanceRadio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance

by Bill McKibben

As the host of Radio Free Vermont--"underground, underpowered, and underfoot"--seventy-two-year-old Vern Barclay is currently broadcasting from an "undisclosed and double-secret location." With the help of a young computer prodigy named Perry Alterson, Vern uses his radio show to advocate for a simple yet radical idea: an independent Vermont, one where the state secedes from the United States and operates under a free local economy. But for now, he and his radio show must remain untraceable, because in addition to being a lifelong Vermonter and concerned citizen, Vern Barclay is also a fugitive from the law.

TED Walks: The Power of Introverts
10:00 AM - 11:30 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 10:40.

In December we'll watch The Power of Introverts, a talk by Susan Cain.

In this passionate talk, Susan Cain argues that introverts bring extraordinary talents and abilities to the world, and should be encouraged and celebrated. A third to a half of the population are introverts, and we are all better off when introverts, extroverts, and everyone in between are prized for being who they are and doing what they do best.

 

Susan Cain is the "Chief Revolutionary" of the Quiet Revolution -- a growing movement championing introversion, spurred on by her viral 2012 TED Talk which has been viewed more than 20 million times, making it one of the most popular of all time.

Cain is the author of the bestsellers Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverted Kids, and Quiet: The Power of Introverts in A World That Can't Stop Talking, which is in its seventh year on the New York Times bestseller list, and was named the best book of 2012 by Fast Company. Her writing has appeared in the New York TimesThe AtlanticThe Wall Street Journal and many other publications.

Grandma Gatewood's Walk coverGrandma Gatewood's Walk by Ben Montgomery

Emma Gatewood told her family she was going on a walk and left her small Ohio hometown with a change of clothes and less than two hundred dollars. The next anybody heard from her, this genteel, farm-reared, 67-year-old great-grandmother had walked 800 miles along the 2,050-mile Appalachian Trail. Grandma Gatewood, as the reporters called her, became the first woman to hike the entire Appalachian Trail alone, as well as the first person—man or woman—to walk it twice and three times.

A Far Cry from Kensington

A Far Cry From Kensington by Muriel Spark

Rich and slim, the celebrated author Nancy Hawkins takes us in hand and leads us back to her threadbare years in postwar London, where she spends her days working for a mad, near-bankrupt publisher and her nights dispensing advice at her small South Kensington rooming house.  Everywhere Mrs. Hawkins finds evil; with aplomb, however, she confidently sets about putting things to order, to terrible effect.

USS Indianapolis with Bob Begin
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

On July 30, 1945, having completed a top-secret mission, the USS Indianapolis was traveling unescorted to the Philippines when she was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine.  Due to an incredible series of blunders by the Navy Department, she was not even missed for almost five days.  During that time, the 900 men who had abandoned ship--many straight into the water--faced terrible physical and mental challenges, including a most primal threat--sharks.  Only 317 would survive.  This tragedy was one of the worst in US naval history, leading to public outrage, the scapegoating of the captain, and years of debate.  

Bob Begin grew up in Maine, graduated from Babson College, served 2 years active duty in the Army, and had a career of 35 years in the paper and film industry culminating as a Logistics Director. The love of history continues to be very rewarding as he enjoys retirement.  His major focus is on Naval History with an emphasis on the Pacific Theater on WWII.  He is also intrigued with the Concept Of Empire and how it shaped history throughout the world.

Choosing College with Michael Horn
7:30 PM - 8:45 PM

Cut through the noise and make better college and career choices.

This book is about addressing the college-choosing problem. The rankings, metrics, analytics, college visits, and advice that we use today to help us make these decisions are out of step with the progress individual students are trying to make. They don't give students and families the information and context they need to make such a high-stakes decision about whether and where to get an education. 

Choosing College strips away the noise to help you understand why you’re going to school. What's driving you? What are you trying to accomplish? Once you know why, the book will help you make better choices. Choosing College helps readers understand not what job students want out of college, but what "Job" students are hiring college to do for them. 

About Michael Horn:

Michael HornMichael Horn speaks and writes about the future of education and works with a portfolio of education organizations to improve the life of each and every student. He serves as the head of strategy for the Entangled Group, an education venture studio, and as a senior partner for Entangled Solutions, a strategy consultancy for the education ecosystem. He is also the co-founder of and a distinguished fellow at the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, a non-profit think tank.

Michael is the author and coauthor of multiple books, white papers, and articles on education, including the award-winning book Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns and the Amazon-bestseller Blended: Using Disruptive Innovation to Improve Schools. An expert on disruptive innovation, online learning, blended learning, competency-based learning, and how to transform the education system into a student-centered one, he serves on the board and advisory boards of a range of education organizations, including the Clayton Christensen Institute, the Robin Hood Learning+Tech Fund, and the LearnLaunch Institute. 

Michael was selected as a 2014 Eisenhower Fellow to study innovation in education in Vietnam and Korea, and Tech&Learning magazine named him to its list of the 100 most important people in the creation and advancement of the use of technology in education. Michael holds a BA in history from Yale University and an MBA from the Harvard Business School.

The Dinner coverThe Dinner by Herman Koch

It's a summer's evening in Amsterdam, and two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant for dinner. Between mouthfuls of food and over the scrapings of cutlery, the conversation remains a gentle hum of polite discourse. But behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened.

Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families. As the dinner reaches its culinary climax, the conversation finally touches on their children. As civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple show just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love.

Great Presenters: Alan Marscher & Svetlana Jorstad - Black Hole Monsters at the Centers of Galaxies
7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Ironically, black holes create the most luminous objects in the universe. The speakers study super-massive black holes at the centers of galaxies, and are members of a team that recently imaged the “black hole shadow” in the center of the galaxy M87. They will discuss how gas falling onto black holes and jets of high-energy particles powered by the black hole’s spin cause the centers of galaxies to shine brightly across the entire spectrum from radio to visible to X-ray and gamma-ray wavelengths.

Dr. Alan Marscher is a professor of astronomy, and Dr. Svetlana Jorstad is a senior research associate in the Institute for Astrophysical Research at Boston University. Together they have published over 200 articles in scientific journals on the topic of quasars and other types of active galactic nuclei. They use data from a number of NASA satellite observatories and ground-based telescopes to follow variations in brightness and changes in images of jets of high-energy particles and magnetic fields at the centers
of some galaxies.

White Trash : The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America

In White Trash, Nancy Isenberg upends assumptions about America's supposedly class-free society and shows how poor whites have been deeply ingrained in the country's history for the past 400 years. They were central to the both the Civil War itself and the rise of the Republican Party, and still today feature in reality TV as entertainment. White trash have always been an integral part of the American identity, and here their history in both culture and politics in explored in depth. A fascinating work that's timely to today's public debate about rich and poor.

The Tenderness of Wolves

When a mysterious trapper is murdered, his neighbor’s son disappears and is suspected of the deed.  The Company (which runs just about everything in Canada's Northern Territory in 1867) sends the hapless Donald Moody to investigate.  This is a complex and engrossing tale of human passion and folly, highlighted by the rigors of a wilderness being systematically despoiled.  The characters are distinctive, their portraits startling and incisive, and the writing is fluid and beautifully detailed.

The Library Book coverThe Library Book by Susan Orlean

On the morning of April 28, 1986, a fire alarm sounded in the Los Angeles Public Library. The fire was disastrous: it reached two thousand degrees and burned for more than seven hours. By the time it was extinguished, it had consumed four hundred thousand books and damaged seven hundred thousand more. Investigators descended on the scene, but more than thirty years later, the mystery remains: Did someone purposefully set fire to the library—and if so, who?

Weaving her lifelong love of books and reading into an investigation of the fire, award-winning New Yorker reporter and New York Times bestselling author Susan Orlean delivers a “delightful…reflection on the past, present, and future of libraries in America” (New York magazine) that manages to tell the broader story of libraries and librarians in a way that has never been done before.

Great Plains

"The Great Plains are like a sheet Americans screened their dreams on for a while and then largely forgot about," insists New York resident Frazier. His book invites the reader to accompany him as he takes his van on a 24,000-mile journey through 10 states situated between the Midwest and the Rockies. With admirable style, Frazier blends travelogue, history lesson, and mythology into a paean to open spaces. His commentary, often flavored with humorous anecdotes, is focused on social life and customs; specific subject matter includes Bonnie and Clyde, MX missiles, Chief Crazy Horse, Mennonites, and even cafe conversation.

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.

Typical American

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.

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

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.

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.

Black Swan Green

Black Swan Green tracks a single year in what is, for 13-year-old Jason Taylor, the sleepiest village in muddiest Worcestershire in a dying Cold War England, 1982.  But the 13 chapters create an exquisitely observed world that is anything but sleepy.  Pointed, funny, profound, left field, elegiac, and painted with the stuff of life, Black Swan Green is a glorious novel of boyhood on the cusp of adulthood.

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.
