This Land of Snow: A Journey Across the North in Winter with Anders Morley
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

A passionate skier since he was a child, Anders Morley dreamed of going on a significant adventure, something bold and of his own design. And so one year in his early thirties, he decided to strap on cross-country skis to travel across Canada in the winter alone.

This Land of Snow is about that journey and a man who must come to terms with what he has left behind, as well as how he wants to continue living after his trip is over. It is an honest, thoughtful, and humorous reckoning of an adventure filled with adrenalin and exuberance, as well as mistakes and danger. Along the way readers gain insight, both charming and fascinating, into Northern outdoor culture and modern-day wilderness living, the history of northern exploration and Nordic skiing, the right to roam movement, winter ecology, and more.

Throughout, Morley’s clear, subtle, and self-deprecating voice speaks to a backwoods-genteel aesthetic that explores the dichotomy between wildness and refinement, language and personal story, journey and home.

A dual citizen of the US and Canada, Anders Morley grew up in New Hampshire and began skiing at age five. After earning a master's degree from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, he settled in Italy where he worked as a translator and English teacher, and explored the Alps in his free time. He contributes regularly to New Hampshire magazine and his work has appeared in a variety of other publications including The Globe and MailNorthern Woodlands magazine, Maisonneuve magazine, and The Aurorean. Morley lives in northern New Hampshire but spends several months a year in Italy.

Evening Book Group featuring Juliette Fay!
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us to discuss Catch Us When We Fall with Wayland author Juliette Fay, in person! All are welcome. Copies will be available at the library in late September.

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 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.

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.

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

 

 

Thursday, November 4th, 7pm - 8:15pm

Join us for a lively discussion of The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal. Books are available at the Circulation Desk at the library.

Email ekatz@minlib.net for Zoom Link.

On a cold spring night in 1952, a huge meteorite fell to earth and obliterated much of the east coast of the United States, including Washington D.C. The ensuing climate cataclysm will soon render the earth inhospitable for humanity, as the last such meteorite did for the dinosaurs. This looming threat calls for a radically accelerated effort to colonize space, and requires a much larger share of humanity to take part in the process. Elma York's experience as a WASP pilot and mathematician earns her a place in the International Aerospace Coalition's attempts to put man on the moon, as a calculator. But with so many skilled and experienced women pilots and scientists involved with the program, it doesn't take long before Elma begins to wonder why they can't go into space, too. Elma's drive to become the first Lady Astronaut is so strong that even the most dearly held conventions of society may not stand a chance against her....Kowal strikes a fine balance of integrating historical accuracy including mid-twentieth-century sexism, racism, and technology with speculative storytelling. Readers will root for Elma as she breaks barriers and calculates lifesaving equations, all while dealing with sometimes-crippling anxiety.

Frances Glover: Wayland Woman Warrior in WWI
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

The Wayland Historical Society and the Wayland Free Public Library Present:   

Frances Glover: Wayland Woman Warrior in WWI

with Jane Sciacca

Meet the first women to enlist in the United States Military including Wayland's Frances Glover. They were known as Yeomen(F) (F for female) in the Naval Reserve Force, little known forerunners of the WAVES of World War II. These pioneers were also the first generation of women to achieve full voting rights. Their accomplishments and struggles set the stage for the world we know today. 

Jane Sciacca is well known in Wayland and beyond for her distinct ability to enliven historical events and places for all to understand and enjoy.  She has provided innumerable programs for the Wayland Historical Society and the National Park Service.  Jane worked as an Interpretive National Park Ranger for twenty years and specialized in slavery and abolition and 19th century American Literature. She also wrote several guidebooks and children’s books for the National Park Service.  

Jane’s research skills are impeccable. Members of the Wayland Historical Society have benefited from her expertise as the Society’s president (2003-2011), Curator (2018-2019) and Lecturer on Lydia Maria Child, Women’s Suffrage and many other topics.  She also chaired the Wayland Historical Commission for a number of years. Jane and her family have lived in Wayland for over fifty years.

This event will be recorded and made available via WayCam and YouTube.

Our November Selection is:

Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer

Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, and as a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings―asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass―offer us gifts and lessons, even if we've forgotten how to hear their voices. In reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten its flourishing today, she circles toward a central argument: that the awakening of ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world. For only when we can hear the languages of other beings will we be capable of understanding the generosity of the earth, and learn to give our own gifts in return.

Our December selection is: Climate Justice: Hope, Resilience, and the Fight for a Sustainable Future by Mary Robinson

Former President of Ireland Mary Robinson's mission to bring together the fight against climate change and the struggle for human rights has brought her to a heartening revelation: that that an irrepressible driving force in the battle for climate justice could be found at the grassroots, mainly among women. Robinson met with ordinary people whose resilience and ingenuity had already unlocked extraordinary change. In Climate Justice, she shares their stories. Powerful and deeply humane, this uplifting book is a stirring manifesto on one of the most pressing humanitarian issues of our time, and a lucid, affirmative, and well-argued case for hope.

Sheltering Sky

In this classic work of psychological terror, Paul Bowles examines the ways in which Americans apprehend an alien culture—and the ways in which their incomprehension destroys them.  The story of three American travelers adrift in the cities and deserts of North Africa after World War II, The Sheltering Sky etches the limits of human reason and intelligence—perhaps even the limits of human life—when they touch the unfathomable emptiness and impassive cruelty of the desert.

Our January selection is: My Grandmother's Hands: Racialized Trauma and the Pathway to Mending Our Hearts and Bodies by Resmaa Menakem

In this groundbreaking book, therapist Resmaa Menakem examines the damage caused by racism in America from the perspective of trauma and body-centered psychology.

The body is where our instincts reside and where we fight, flee, or freeze, and it endures the trauma inflicted by the ills that plague society. Menakem argues this destruction will continue until Americans learn to heal the generational anguish of white supremacy, which is deeply embedded in all our bodies.

Our February selection is: Begin Again: James Baldwin's America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own by Eddie S. Glaude

Begin Again is one of the great books on James Baldwin and a powerful reckoning with America's ongoing failure to confront the lies it tells itself about race. In these brilliant pages, Glaude finds hope and guidance in Baldwin as he mixes biography with history, memoir, and analysis of our current moment to reveal the painful cycle of Black resistance and white retrenchment. Begin Again is a searing exploration of the tangled web of race, trauma, and memory, and a powerful interrogation of what we must ask of ourselves in order to call forth a new America.

What story would Eve have told? Why is Pandora blamed for opening the box? And what about the fate of Cassandra who was blessed with knowing the future but cursed so that no one believed her? What if women had been the storytellers?

Cassandra Speaks is about the stories we tell and how those stories become culture. We have outgrown so many, and still they endure. This book is about what happens when women are the storytellers ? when we speak from our authentic voices, when we become protagonists in the tales we tell about what it means to be human.

Our April selection is: Heart Berries: A Memoir by Terese Marie Mailhot

Having survived a profoundly dysfunctional upbringing only to find herself hospitalized and facing a dual diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder and bipolar II disorder, Terese Marie Mailhot is given a notebook and begins to write her way out of trauma. The triumphant result is Heart Berries, a memorial for Mailhot's mother, a social worker and activist who had a thing for prisoners; a story of reconciliation with her father―an abusive drunk and a brilliant artist―who was murdered under mysterious circumstances; and an elegy on how difficult it is to love someone while dragging the long shadows of shame.

Mailhot trusts the reader to understand that memory isn't exact, but melded to imagination, pain, and what we can bring ourselves to accept. Her unique and at times unsettling voice graphically illustrates her mental state. As she writes, she discovers her own true voice, seizes control of her story, and, in so doing, reestablishes her connection to her family, to her people, and to her place in the world.

Willis Wu doesn't perceive himself as the protagonist in his own life: he's merely Generic Asian Man. Sometimes he gets to be Background Oriental Making a Weird Face or even Disgraced Son, but always he is relegated to a prop.

After stumbling into the spotlight, Willis finds himself launched into a wider world than he's ever known, discovering not only the secret history of Chinatown, but the buried legacy of his own family. Inventive and deeply personal, exploring the themes of pop culture, assimilation, and immigration -- Interior Chinatown is Charles Yu's most moving and masterful novel yet.

Our June selection is: She/He/They/Me: For the Sisters, Misters, and Binary Resisters by Robin Ryle

Open your eyes to what it means to be a boy or a girl ― and above and beyond! Within these pages, you get to choose which path to forge. Explore over one hundred different scenarios that embrace nearly every definition across the world, over history, and in the ever-widening realms of our imagination! What if your journey leads you into a world with several genders, or simply one? Do you live in a matriarchal society, or as a sworn virgin in the Balkans? How does gender (or the lack thereof) change the way we approach sex and love, life or death?

Jump headfirst into this refreshingly creative exploration of the ways gender colors every shade and shape of our world. Above all, it's more important than ever for us to celebrate the fact that there are infinite gender paths ― and each of them is beautiful.
