WordXWord: Race in America
Apr 30 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

For this event, the poet’s challenge is to use art to explore and share personal journeys around race and xenophobia – issues that are inexorably wrapped around the history of America and reflected in much of the current discourse. By sharing personal stories, observations, moments of inspiration, and hope, we look to create a broad poetic tapestry with a goal that the resulting “conversation” between creative voices will make us stronger.

Free and open to the community.

Jennifer Browdy, Ph.D.: Navigating Climate Change in Uncertain Times: Cultivating Personal and Political Resilience for a Thriving Future

Saturday, May 5, 3 pm

In this inspiring interdisciplinary lecture, Jennifer Browdy, Ph.D. draws on literature, history, philosophy, environmental studies, politics & economics to situate climate change as an urgent personal and political call to action. Only by aligning our individual and social values with our relationship to our planet, she argues, will we be able to create the thriving future we yearn for.

Her new memoir, What I Forgot …And Why I Remembered: A Journey to Environmental Awareness and Activism Through Purposeful Memoir, is accompanied by her writer’s guide, The Elemental Journey of Purposeful Memoir: A Writer’s Companion (Green Fire Press, 2017). In addition to authoring many articles and book chapters, she is the editor of the anthologies Women Writing Resistance in Latin America and the Caribbean (Beacon Press, 2017); African Women Writing Resistance: Contemporary Voices (University of Wisconsin Press, 2010); and Writing Fire: Celebrating the Power of Women’s Words (Green Fire Press, 2017).

Learner’s Lab: A Boatload of Treasure – Family Heirlooms on the Ship Manifest
May 19 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Genealogist Keren Weiner demonstrates how to find your ancestors’ ship records.  Using examples from her case files, Keren will break down the steps you need to follow to locate passenger lists, and will show how to mine the rich treasure of information they contain.  Passenger lists contain surprising nuggets, providing clues to the lives our relatives left behind and leaving breadcrumbs to follow that illuminate their unfolding stories after immigration. Q & A follows the presentation.
