Ukulele Club Halloween Edition
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us on Zoom at 7pm. This is a fun and casual sing and play-along session. No registration necessary.

WHAT FIRST-TIMERS NEED TO KNOW: The technology for connecting and playing music together at the same time 'live' over the internet really isn't that terrific yet. Because of latency (the delay between making the actual sound at the source and when it ends up playing through your speaker at home), it's pretty much impossible to get everyone playing in time to the same beat, and there can be lots of echoes and distracting sounds if we're not careful. Our solution is that WHEN WE ARE ACTUALLY PLAYING, we'll mute everyone but Mark and Zoe (who will be together), and everyone can play along at home. Thing is, you'll be able to SEE each other (put zoom in 'gallery' view!) but not HEAR each other. It's not perfect, but for now it's what we have -- and I think it's still pretty darned good, with all of us still really and truly getting together and playing music. Thanks for joining our uku-munity! :-)

__________________________

Join us to read and discuss non-fiction on a variety of topics in social justice. 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+.

In October we'll read Our Time is Now by Stacey Abrams. Get your hard copy by calling the library at 508-358-2311 to set up a pick up time. Or reserve the ebookdigital audiobook, or CD audio

Celebrated national leader and bestselling author Stacey Abrams offers a blueprint to end voter suppression, empower our citizens, and take back our country. A recognized expert on fair voting and civic engagement, Abrams chronicles a chilling account of how the right to vote and the principle of democracy have been and continue to be under attack. Abrams would have been the first African American woman governor, but experienced these effects firsthand, despite running the most innovative race in modern politics as the Democratic nominee in Georgia. Abrams didn't win, but she has not conceded. The book compellingly argues for the importance of robust voter protections, an elevation of identity politics, engagement in the census, and a return to moral international leadership.

Our Time Is Now draws on extensive research from national organizations and renowned scholars, as well as anecdotes from her life and others' who have fought throughout our country's history for the power to be heard. The stakes could not be higher. Here are concrete solutions and inspiration to stand up for who we are—now.

Enduring Love  Enduring Love by Ian McEwan

On a windy spring day in the Chilterns, the calm, organized life of science writer Joe Rose is shattered when he witnesses a tragic accident: a hot-air balloon with a boy trapped in its basket is being tossed by the wind, and in the attempt to save the child, a man is killed. A stranger named Jed Parry joins Rose in helping to bring the balloon to safety. But unknown to Rose, something passes between Parry and himself on that day--something that gives birth to an obsession in Parry so powerful that it will test the limits of Rose's beloved rationalism, threaten the love of his wife, Clarissa, and drive him to the brink of murder and madness. Brilliant and compassionate, this is a novel of love, faith, and suspense, and of how life can change in an instant.

7 1/2 Lessons about the Brain with Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Have you ever wondered why you have a brain? Let renowned neuroscientist Lisa Feldman Barrett demystify that big gray blob between your ears.

In seven short essays (plus a bite-sized story about how brains evolved), this slim and accessible collection reveals mind-expanding lessons from the front lines of neuroscience research. You’ll learn where brains came from, how they’re structured (and why it matters), and how yours works in tandem with other brains to create everything you experience. Along the way, you’ll also learn to dismiss popular myths such as the idea of a “lizard brain” and the alleged battle between thoughts and emotions, or even between nature and nurture, to determine your behavior.

Sure to intrigue casual readers and scientific veterans alike, Seven and a Half Lessons About the Brain is full of surprises, humor, and important implications for human nature.

 

Lisa Feldman Barrett, PhD, is among the top one percent most cited scientists in the world for her revolutionary research in psychology and neuroscience. She is a University Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Northeastern University, with appointments at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. She is also Chief Science Officer for the Center for Law, Brain & Behavior at Harvard University.

In addition to the books Seven and a Half Lessons About the Brain and How Emotions are Made, Dr. Barrett has published over 240 peer-reviewed, scientific papers appearing in ScienceNature Neuroscience, and other top journals in psychology and cognitive neuroscience, as well as six academic volumes published by Guilford Press. She has also given a popular TED talk with over 5.5 million views.

Dr. Barrett received a National Institutes of Health Director’s Pioneer Award for her revolutionary research on emotion in the brain. These highly competitive, multimillion dollar awards are given to scientists of exceptional creativity who are expected to transform biomedical and behavioral research. She also received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2019.

Among her many accomplishments, Dr. Barrett has testified before Congress, presented her research to the FBI, consulted to the National Cancer Institute, appeared on Through The Wormhole with Morgan Freeman and The Today Show with Maria Shriver, and been a featured guest on public television and podcast and radio programs worldwide. She is also an elected fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences and the Royal Society of Canada.

Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead  Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead by Olga Tokaczuk; translated by Antonia Lloyd-Jones

In a remote Polish village, Janina devotes the dark winter days to studying astrology, translating the poetry of William Blake, and taking care of the summer homes of wealthy Warsaw residents. Her reputation as a crank and a recluse is amplified by her not-so-secret preference for the company of animals over humans. Then a neighbor, Big Foot, turns up dead. Soon other bodies are discovered, in increasingly strange circumstances. As suspicions mount, Janina inserts herself into the investigation, certain that she knows whodunit. If only anyone would pay her mind . . . A deeply satisfying thriller cum fairy tale, Drive Your Plow over the Bones of the Dead is a provocative exploration of the murky borderland between sanity and madness, justice and tradition, autonomy and fate. Whom do we deem sane? it asks. Who is worthy of a voice?

Wide Sargasso Sea  Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys

Wide Sargasso Sea, a masterpiece of modern fiction, was Jean Rhys's return to the literary center stage. She had a startling early career and was known for her extraordinary prose and haunting women characters. With Wide Sargasso Sea, her last and best-selling novel, she ingeniously brings into light one of fiction's most fascinating characters: the madwoman in the attic from Charlotte Bront 's Jane Eyre. This mesmerizing work introduces us to Antoinette Cosway, a sensual and protected young woman who is sold into marriage to the prideful Mr. Rochester. Rhys portrays Cosway amidst a society so driven by hatred, so skewed in its sexual relations, that it can literally drive a woman out of her mind.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
