VIRTUAL: AUTHOR TALK -- Good Grief: How To Grieve The Loss Of A Pet
Aug 17
Morrill Memorial Library
Virtual Morrill Memorial Library, 33 Walpole St., Norwood, MA, 02062

Wednesday, August 17 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Morrill Memorial Library

The Morrill Memorial Library is pleased to partner with the Tewksbury Public Library and other MLN libraries to bring a series of virtual author presentations to our communities. On Wednesday, August 17 at 7:00pm, join us on Zoom for "Good Grief: How To Grieve The Loss Of A Pet," by E.B. Bartels, author of Good Grief: On Loving Pets, Here and Hereafter. Good Grief: On Loving Pets, Here and Hereafter is an unexpected, poignant, and personal account of loving and losing pets, exploring the singular bonds we have with our companion animals, and how to grieve them once they’ve passed. E.B. Bartels has had a lot of pets—dogs, birds, fish, tortoises. As varied a bunch as they are, they’ve taught her one universal truth: To own a pet is to love a pet, and to own a pet is also—with rare exception—to lose that pet in time. But while we have codified traditions to mark the passing of our fellow humans, most cultures don’t have the same for pets. Bartels takes us from Massachusetts to Japan, from ancient Egypt to the modern era, in search of the good pet death. We meet veterinarians, archaeologists, ministers, and more, offering an idiosyncratic, inspiring array of rituals—from the traditional (scattering ashes, commissioning a portrait), to the grand (funereal processions, mausoleums), to the unexpected (taxidermy, cloning). The central lesson: There is no best practice when it comes to mourning your pet, except to care for them in death as you did in life, and find the space to participate in their end as fully as you can. Punctuated by wry, bighearted accounts of Bartels’s own pets and their deaths, Good Grief is a cathartic companion through loving and losing our animal family. About the author: The nonfiction work of E.B. Bartels has appeared in Catapult, Electric Literature, The Believer Logger, The Rumpus, The Millions, The Toast, The Butter, Entropy, FullStop, Ploughshares online, and the anthology The Places We’ve Been: Field Reports from Travelers Under 35, among others. She is a regular performer in Mortified, and her flash nonfiction piece “Vulnerable” was the winner of the 2018 Eldridge Tide & Pilot Book Story Contest. E.B. also writes the monthly column "Non-Fiction by Non-Men for Fiction Advocate," in which she interviews women and non-binary people who write nonfiction. She is an instructor at the creative writing center GrubStreet, the Wellesley Writes It editor for Wellesley Underground, and an on-again-off-again bookseller at Newtonville Books. In addition to writing, E.B. also works as a freelance editor, a manuscript consultant, a writing coach, a tutor, and a senior editorial writer in the communications and public affairs department at Wellesley College. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband, Richie, and their many, many pets: Terrence (tortoise), Seymour (dog), Bert, Dan, and Murray (pigeons), and assorted fish and shrimp. Learn more about E.B. here. Registration is required; please sign up HERE. Note that Zoom details will come from the Tewksbury Public Library, the hosting institution.

What tools and resources does the Constitution provide the Executive branch to take during such a crisis? What role do the other branches of government play?

The life of Boston’s arts patroness typifies the lives of many of the wealthy and cultured Americans who lived during the Gilded Age of American history.  We will explore the details of Isabella Stewart Gardner’s life, friends, travels and collections. She broke all kinds of rules while setting up her museum but perhaps we can understand this when we read her personal motto, “It is my pleasure.” She arranged things the way she wanted with relationships between objects that may at first escape us. What is left for us is to marvel at the space she created and filled with beautiful things. Presenter Mary Woodward previously served as Public Programs Coordinator and Educator at the Concord Museum. Woodward has a B.A. in Art History from Furman University and a M.A. in Art History from Emory University. She has 40+ years of experience in museums of all shapes and sizes, from the comprehensive collection at the Cleveland Museum of Art to the one-room log cabin birthplace of President James K. Polk.

Morrill Memorial Library

***Please note: This event has been rescheduled from August 2 to August 25, 2022*** The Morrill Memorial Library is partnering with the Tewksbury Public Library and other MLN libraries to host a summer series of virtual author talks. On Thursday, August 25 at 7:00pm, join us on Zoom for "Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth," by Avi Loeb, bestselling author of the recent, critically acclaimed book Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth. Harvard’s top astronomer lays out his controversial theory that our solar system was recently visited by advanced alien technology from a distant star. In late 2017, scientists at a Hawaiian observatory glimpsed an object soaring through our inner solar system, moving so quickly that it could only have come from another star. Avi Loeb, Harvard’s top astronomer, showed it was not an asteroid; it was moving too fast along a strange orbit, and left no trail of gas or debris in its wake. There was only one conceivable explanation: the object was a piece of advanced technology created by a distant alien civilization. In Extraterrestrial, Loeb takes readers inside the thrilling story of the first interstellar visitor to be spotted in our solar system. He outlines his controversial theory and its profound implications: for science, for religion, and for the future of our species and our planet. A mind-bending journey through the furthest reaches of science, space-time, and the human imagination, Extraterrestrial challenges readers to aim for the stars--and to think critically about what’s out there, no matter how strange it seems. The book was a New York Times bestseller, Wall Street Journal bestseller, and Publishers Weekly bestseller; named an Amazon Best Book of the Year; and longlisted for the 2022 PEN/E.O. Wilson Literacy Science Writing Award. About the author: Avi Loeb is the Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science at Harvard University, chair of Harvard’s Department of Astronomy, founding director of Harvard’s Black Hole Initiative, and director of the Institute for Theory and Computation (ITC) within the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. He also chairs the Advisory Committee for the Breakthrough Starshot Initiative, and serves as the science theory director for all Initiatives of the Breakthrough Prize Foundation, as well as chair of the Board on Physics and Astronomy of the National Academies. Author of four books and over 700 scientific papers, Loeb is an elected fellow of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, the American Physical Society, and the International Academy of Astronautics. In 2012, Time selected Loeb as one of the twenty-five most influential people in space. Learn more about Loeb here. Registration is required; please sign up HERE.

FDR insists on sticking with the plan to turn on the lights of the national Christmas tree in a public ceremony scheduled for December 24 on the White House lawn. But Nazi agent Martin Browning is sticking to another plan: assassinate the president just before he pulls the switch to light the tree. And, now, it looks like Browning may be able to get two for the price of one: Winston Churchill is in Washington and will be at FDR's side on the lawn. On the road to the Christmas Eve showdown, Martin concocts a devilishly complex and lusciously detail-rich thriller that winds its way from Hollywood, where script reader Kevin Cusack, who earns extra money posing as a member of the German Bund, picks up chatter about an assassination plot. Could it involve the Leslie Howard look-alike (Browning) working in a Los Angeles clothing store? Echoing Ken Follett's classic Eye of the Needle, Martin builds tension superbly while surrounding the assassin and his pursuer with a rich panoply of supporting players and backstories. (Book List Reviews) ABOUT THE AUTHOR: William Martin is the New York Times bestselling author of twelve novels, a PBS documentary, book reviews, magazine articles, and a cult-classic horror movie, too. His first Peter Fallon novel, Back Bay, established him as "a master storyteller." He has been following the lives of the great and anonymous in American history ever since, taking readers from the Mayflower in Cape Cod to Ford's Theater in The Lincoln Letter to the South Tower on 9/11 in City of Dreams. Bound for Gold (2018), sweeps readers back to California in the legendary year of 1849 and "solidifies his claim as king of the historical thriller" (Providence Journal). And his latest, the "propulsive" December '41, captures the atmosphere in the United States int he weeks after Pearl Harbor. Learn more about William Martin.

We are thrilled to be chatting with authors Isabel Cañas, Romina Garber, Priscilla Oliveras, and Caridad Piñeiro about their journeys to becoming published (and fabulous!) authors, keeping in mind their diverse Latinx backgrounds. Whether they were born in the US or elsewhere, we wonder how their heritage has influenced their writing, characters, publishing journey, and fan base. It's sure to be a fascinating conversation! Please register for this virtual event. You'll receive the zoom link in the confirmation and reminder emails. Register here. About the authors... Isabel Cañas is a Mexican-American speculative fiction writer. After having lived in Mexico, Scotland, Egypt, and Turkey, among other places, she has settled (for now) in New York City. She holds a doctorate in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations and writes fiction inspired by her research and her heritage. Romina Garber is a New York Times and international bestselling author whose books include Lobizona & the ZODIAC series. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and raised in Miami, Florida, Romina landed her first writing gig as a teen—College She Wrote, a weekly Sunday column for the Miami Herald that was later picked up for national syndication—and she hasn’t stopped writing since. She is a graduate of Harvard College and a Virgo to the core. Priscilla Oliveras is a USA Today bestselling author and 2018 RWA® RITA® double finalist who writes contemporary romance with a Latinx flavor. Proud of her Puerto Rican-Mexican heritage, she strives to bring authenticity to her novels by sharing her Latinx culture with readers. Her books have earned Starred Reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, and Booklist along with praise from O, The Oprah Magazine, Washington Post, New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Frolic, and more. She earned her MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University where she currently serves as adjunct faculty while also teaching the online class “Romance Writing” for ed2go. A long-time romance enthusiast, Priscilla’s also a sports fan, beach lover, and Zumba aficionado, who often practices the art of napping in her backyard hammock.

She is a founding member of the Liberty States Fiction Writers and has presented workshops at the RT Book Club Convention, Romance Writers of America National Conference as well as various writing organizations throughout the country.
