This thematic discussion group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. For more information on joining the group please email [email protected] 16 theme: Generative Artificial Intelligence and Humanity with JamieThere has been a lot in the news lately about ChatGPT and other Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) programs and applications. Are you concerned or excited? I have suggested some book titles, but also recommend watching free videos on youtube or listening to podcasts and reading interviews on the topic. AI development is rapidly changing, sometimes by the day at this point so you may see something that we have missed in these resources. Please come ready to share your sources and to talk about your feelings on the subject as well. For a worthwhile discussion, you need a basic understanding of what Generative AI is, so I recommend that you take a look at some of the videos suggested in this list. None of us are experts, but we do think this would be a valuable discussion regardless.Highlighted book list:From AI Developers (A more personal look at AI)"The worlds I see: curiosity, exploration, and discovery at the dawn of AI" by Fei Fei Li"Unmasking AI : my mission to protect what is human in a world of machines" by Joy Buolamwini"You look like a thing and I love you: how artificial intelligence works and why it's making the world a weirder place" by Janelle ShaneLonger Thinkpieces"The coming wave : technology, power, and the twenty-first century's greatest dilemma" by Mustafa Suleyman"The age of A.

In April, join us at the library for an enchanting taste of contemporary French cinema. These three magical films explore themes of memory, the complexities of family bonds, and the profound connections between generations. Dessert and light refreshments will be served. When elderly matriarch Hélène discovers that her health is declining, she contacts her three adult children about contending with her valuable art collection after her passing. As the family gathers, local son Frédéric is on hand, while his jet-setting siblings, Adrienne and Jérémie, fly in from abroad. Together, they try to agree on what to do with their mother's collection, as they also grapple with her mortality. This program is generously funded by the Friends of the Edgartown Free Public Library. https://edgartownlibrary.assabetinteractive.com/calendar/international-film-night-summer-hours-2008/

Dennis Public Library

Dennis Public Library

For nearly fifty years, the Lady of the Dunes was Cape Cod’s most enduring mystery. Found savagely murdered and mutilated in the remote dunes of Provincetown in 1974 it seemed her identity would be forever unknown. In 2022 she was finally identified as Ruth Marie Terry.Filmmaker Victor Franko worked tirelessly for two years attempting to give the Lady of the Dunes her name back through his documentary. Whether directly, or indirectly, he succeeded.Repeatedly told he was ‘chasing ghosts’ and to ‘let it go’ Victor persevered. The process led to visiting rustic dune shacks, creepy cemeteries, iconic Provincetown night spots, Boston’s infamous Combat Zone, and correspondence with convicted serial killers. Over time the project became about more than just a dead girl in the dunes.The documentary shone new light on the Lady of the Dunes case. This book pulls the curtain back on the Wild West that was Provincetown in the 1960s and 1970s thanks to those who were there at the time.

 Dr. Randi Lebar will present an inspirational talk about the wild ride she has taken with her mother, pianist Elaine Lebar (96), a resident of Buzzards Bay, who went viral on TikTok in 2020.  Specifically focusing on the magic and power of music in dementia, the talk features many videos of Elaine, and also includes lessons Randi learned along the way about finding meaning and joy in her relationship with her mother, in spite of her mental decline.  Even though the presentation is sure to entertain a wide audience, it will be especially educational, inspiring and hopeful for those dealing with a loved one in any stage of cognitive decline.  Elaine Lebar began playing piano at the age of 3.  She graduated from the High School of Music and Art in NYC, received a BA in music from Brooklyn College and an MFA in music education from the University of Missouri.  She is an accomplished performer, accompanist and composer.  And now, living with dementia, Elaine has become a TikTok star with over 240,000 followers. Randi Lebar graduated from Cornell's College of Arts and Sciences in 1978 with a BA in Chemistry and went on to receive an MD in 1982 from the University of Maryland School of Medicine.  She then served for 11 years in the US Navy, completing her Orthopaedic Surgery residency at the Naval Hospital Oakland. After serving as an orthopaedic surgeon in Okinawa, Japan, Dr. Lebar left the Navy and moved to Maine where she continued her orthopaedic practice. Now retired from medicine, Randi lives in Sagamore where she knits, crafts, gardens, and pursues her passion for all forms of dance." https://bournelibrary.assabetinteractive.com/calendar/music-in-dementia/

Cold War Written by Fermin Rojas Augie, a Cuban-American playwright who grew up in the 1960’s, and his husband are about to embark on a summer reunion with their longtime friends in the Catskills to celebrate Augie’s commission of a new play. But when Augie receives some life-altering news his doomsday clock begins ticking ever closer to midnight, threatening the end of his career, relationships, and memories. Fermin is a producer/filmmaker, actor, writer and co-founder of DKR Films. DKR’s award-winning documentaries include Alumbrones, The Black Mambas and King Philip’s Belt : A Story of Wampum, which screened at The Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of the American Indian. Narrative film credits include executive producer for The Ali’i King, written and directed by Christine Kunewa Walker. He has authored numerous ten-minute plays, books for musicals and monologues for the stage. Along with husband Jay Kubesch, Fermin produced Cuba’s first and only gay men’s singing ensemble Mano a Mano. The Truro Playwright Collective is a group of established, local playwrights who present staged readings of their full-length works once a month from October through March.

If you want to explore the cards, their symbolism, and how to use them, come join Suzanne Keating and other students of this illustrious art of esoteric interpretation, as we dive into the symbolism of various decks and play with it's significance in our lives. The Rider-Waite-Smith deck is perhaps the most commonly known modern Tarot Deck, richly illustrated by the brilliant painter Pamela Colman Smith, commissioned by Arthur E. Waite, and published by Rider. Modern tarot stems from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but it's roots date back to at least the 1440's and 1450's in Italy as seen in the Visconti-Sforza tarot deck of that period. Bring your own deck of Tarot cards & a notebook or journal.

Truro Library Book GroupApril selection is Brave New World by Aldous Huxley Books will be available at the circulation desk a few weeks before the discussion. Huxley’s profoundly important classic of world literature, Brave New World is a searching vision of an unequal, technologically-advanced future where humans are genetically bred, socially indoctrinated, and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively uphold an authoritarian ruling order—all at the cost of our freedom, full humanity, and perhaps also our souls. “A genius [who] who spent his life decrying the onward march of the Machine” (The New Yorker), Huxley was a man of incomparable talents: equally an artist, a spiritual seeker, and one of history’s keenest observers of human nature and civilization. The Book group is now meeting inside (or outside when possible) the Library. If you would like to join virtually, please email Maggie to receive a Zoom invite.

These three magical films explore themes of memory, the complexities of family bonds, and the profound connections between generations. Dessert and light refreshments will be served. This bewitching period fable follows the story of Juliette, a girl raised by her father in rural Normandy in the years after World War I. Dreaming of greater possibilities, Juliette seeks refuge in the nearby woods, where she meets a witch who promises scarlet sails will one day take her away from her village. She is soon swept away by a rakish young pilot who literally falls from the sky. Delicately weaving together history and folklore, Scarlet is a timeless story of a young woman’s emancipation. This program is generously funded by the Friends of the Edgartown Free Public Library. https://edgartownlibrary.assabetinteractive.com/calendar/international-film-night-scarlet-2022/

Silent Seas: Exploring the World of Deaf Nantucketers, with Rebecca Edwards
Apr 26
Nantucket Atheneum
1 India St, NANTUCKET, MA, 02554, US

Friday, April 26 from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Nantucket Atheneum

This lecture will take us back to the nineteenth century, and introduce us to the first deaf people from Nantucket to receive a formal education.  The American School for the Deaf, in Hartford, Connecticut, opened in 1817.  Nantucketers were quick to invest in this educational opportunity. The first student from Nantucket arrived at the school in 1825, the second in 1826.  Going to the school allowed these young deaf people to connect to the wider deaf community of New England.  It also allowed hearing people, including Maria Mitchell, to make unexpected connections to the deaf community.   Join Rebecca Edwards, professor of history at the Rochester Institute of Technology, to explore Nantucket’s place in the early history of the American deaf community.

The test of a true leader can be found in a man who continues to inspire a country long after his own voice has faded to the echoes of time. This is Lincoln https://bournelibrary.assabetinteractive.com/calendar/lincoln-life-law-and-leadership/

If you want to explore the cards, their symbolism, and how to use them, come join Suzanne Keating and other students of this illustrious art of esoteric interpretation, as we dive into the symbolism of various decks and play with it's significance in our lives. The Rider-Waite-Smith deck is perhaps the most commonly known modern Tarot Deck, richly illustrated by the brilliant painter Pamela Colman Smith, commissioned by Arthur E. Waite, and published by Rider. Modern tarot stems from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but it's roots date back to at least the 1440's and 1450's in Italy as seen in the Visconti-Sforza tarot deck of that period. Bring your own deck of Tarot cards & a notebook or journal.

Thursday, May 2 from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm

West Tisbury Free Public Library

Photo Engagement Project – Online The West Tisbury Library presents online gatherings of the Photo Engagement Project (PEP). This event meets on the first Thursday of each month at 5:30pm. The PEP meets on Zoom while the library building remains closed. Please contact the West Tisbury Library to join by emailing [email protected]. Free and open to the public. About the PEP: This monthly gathering is open to people of all different ages, backgrounds, and experiences. Participants do not need to be photographers or live on-island. All are welcome, including children through to seniors, individuals who simply have an appreciation for photography, individuals who would like to learn or are just starting out, students, and amateurs and professionals. The goal is to increase engagement in and enthusiasm for photography, at the level each individual chooses, whilst simultaneously encouraging each individual to do the same for others. In this way, the PEP hopes to promote an ongoing cycle of shared creative activity around the enjoyment of photography, and enhance wellbeing. The PEP does not have a jurying process, and does not critique participants’ work. It is designed to increase accessibility and engagement; help develop confidence, ideas, and connections; and offer opportunities for people to receive, and give, help in a safe and supportive environment. Participants are not required to attend every meeting. At meetings, each participant will be asked to contribute something small, as we all have something to give, as well as learn. Some ideas may include: bringing a few of your own photos, images of a photographer’s work that inspires you, a quote or excerpt from a book/magazine, tips, news of artist opportunities/workshops, or potential project proposals such as a photo walk, printing images, or outreaching to an island organization.

If you want to explore the cards, their symbolism, and how to use them, come join Suzanne Keating and other students of this illustrious art of esoteric interpretation, as we dive into the symbolism of various decks and play with it's significance in our lives. The Rider-Waite-Smith deck is perhaps the most commonly known modern Tarot Deck, richly illustrated by the brilliant painter Pamela Colman Smith, commissioned by Arthur E. Waite, and published by Rider. Modern tarot stems from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, but it's roots date back to at least the 1440's and 1450's in Italy as seen in the Visconti-Sforza tarot deck of that period. Bring your own deck of Tarot cards & a notebook or journal.

Joy of Learning Poems of Emily Dickinson
May 8
Cotuit Public Library
871 Main Street, Cotuit, MA 02635

Wednesday, May 8 from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm

Cotuit Public Library

We will continue to celebrate our 150th anniversary with a four part learning series of Emily Dickinson's poems with local resident David Webb. David has chosen 32 poems for this offering, eight per session, and hopes that a few friends of the Cotuit Library will choose to read, wrestle with, and discuss these poems with him. Emily Dickinson is a candidate for "The greatest American Poet" award.  While many Americans know this about her, very few have actually read much of her poetry.  In spite of her unusually limited life-style -- she had modest schooling, lived at home with her family in Amherst, Massachusetts, traveled very little, never married or really had a partner-- she enjoyed a rich and lively intellectual and spiritual life.  She wrote about 1775 poems, most of these secretly, and she published just seven, all anonymously.  As she said to her would-be publisher and mentor Thomas Wentworth Higginson, "If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry."  David Webb is a 1964 graduate of Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School, 1968 from Wesleyan, and he holds two advanced degrees from Columbia University.  He spent his entire career at Choate Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, CT, where he taught English, mathematics, and Architectural Design and did college counseling.  He is now retired and lives with his wife in Cotuit. If you are interested in attending this 4 part series, May 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th,  please save your seat with Sunshine by registering here: https://forms.gle/fnMmeUyhisRDbezX8 Each student will be provided a copy of Final Harvest to use for the course of the series. Spaces are limited.

From Beachside to Fathoms Below: Appreciating Cape Cod's Marine Life
May 9
Whelden Memorial Library
Whelden Memorial Library

Thursday, May 9 at 6:00 pm

Whelden Memorial Library

Presented by: Lindsay Hirt, marine biologist and science educator Cape Cod sure is WILD! Aren't we lucky to be almost entirely surrounded by water? Whether you're tasting the salty brine of the oyster, your toes are sinking into the sand at Mayflower Beach, your skin is soaking in the sun while rocking gently in the bay, or even while driving over the canal bridges, there is always something fascinating to appreciate when it comes to the marine life of our beautiful New England peninsula. Here is a chance to informally chat about the oddball mola mola (ocean sunfish) flopping its crazy flippers at the surface, the technicolor blob-like comb jellies luminescing in the waves, the prehistoric horseshoe crabs crawling ashore on full moon nights, and the adventuresome migration of the gregarious humpback whale, among others! In preparation for what hopes to be an incredible outdoor season, Lindsay will let this interactive talk go where it takes us, and offer some items to touch from her own collection foraged from Cape Cod beaches. Sharing your own exciting wildlife encounters will be a delightful addition and bringing your own beach-combed treasures to view is absolutely encouraged. Sea you at Whelden Library!
