An Evening Filled with Hope with Wade Rouse
Grand Rapids Public Library – Main, Wednesday, May 17 at 7pm
Wade Rouse is back in West Michigan this spring to share from his new book, The Hope Chest, which he wrote under the pen name Viola Shipman—a tribute to his grandmother and the woman who inspired his Heirloom Series. In The Hope Chest, wade weaves the tale of the lives of three people who deepen connections to one another—and find hope in the midst of overwhelming life changes—as they discover the contents and secrets of one woman’s hope chest. Wade will read from The Hope Chest and talk about why hope and sentimentality are important and yet so undervalued in literature today. The Hope Chest is the follow-up novel to The Charm Bracelet, which was named a 2017 Michigan Notable Book. A book signing will follow the presentation.

Climate Change for Future & Present Presidents
Crowell Public Library, Wednesday, April 5 at 7pm
Cal Tech’s Austin Minnich will present a fascinating program on climate change and its ramifications at Crowell Public Library, Wednesday, April 5th. Climate change is often viewed through the lens of complicated changes in weather patterns over the globe. However, the fundamental cause of climate change is simple and can be understood by everyone.

In this talk, Minnich will describe exactly why climate change is occurring and its effects on our planet using basic physical principles. In particular, how the science that enables us to drive cars, use electric power, and keep our food cold in refrigerators also governs why extra carbon dioxide in our atmosphere must result in excess heat trapped on Earth. Minnich will show why common arguments that deny climate change is occurring contradict the basic physics underlying technology in our modern society. Although the present situation is serious, huge gains can be made in mitigating the effects of climate change with existing technology while also positively impacting the economy, air quality, and a host of other factors. Acting now to employ these commercially available technologies ensures that our planet will be preserved for our children and grandchildren.

Austin Minnich is an Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Applied Physics at the California Institute of Technology. He received his Bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley in 2006 and his PhD from MIT in 2011, after which he started his position at Caltech. He is the recipient of a 2013 NSF CAREER Award and a 2015 ONR Young Investigator Award. Austin Minnich also runs the minnichlab (http://minnich.caltech.edu/index.html ) which focuses on understanding and engineering nanoscale heat transport for applications in the energy field like thermoelectric waste heat recovery.

Adults, STEM students and all curious non-scientists will enjoy this free presentation. Light refreshments will be served. (notparoo)
