    Marion Elizabeth Rodgers on H. L. Mencken, The Days Trilogy
    The Library of America and Emory University invite you to a special event:

    Marion Elizabeth Rodgers on H. L. Mencken

    H. L. Mencken biographer Marion Elizabeth Rodgers will discuss The Library of America’s new and expanded edition of The Days Trilogy, which includes nearly 200 pages of Mencken’s own never-before-published commentary, which had been sealed from the public until twenty-five years after his death.

    About Mencken’s Days Trilogy:

    In 1936, at the age of fifty-five, H. L. Mencken published a reminiscence about his boyhood in The New Yorker, beginning a long and magnificent adventure in autobiography by America’s greatest journalist. Mencken went on to gather his childhood recollections in Happy Days, a richly detailed, poignant account of growing up in Baltimore. A critical and popular success, the book surprised many with its glimpses of a less curmudgeonly Mencken, and there soon followed the absorbing sequels Newspaper Days, charting his rise at the Baltimore Herald from cub reporter to editor, and Heathen Days, recounting his varied excursions as journalist and public figure, including his coverage of the Scopes trial in 1925.

    This event is free and open to the public. (jasbro)

    Kidliterate Book Club
    Charis Books and More, Tuesday, October 28 at 7pm
    Join us for a wide-ranging conversation in a new kind of book club. We'll be reading one book a month (children's or young adult fiction). Titles will be very carefully selected. We'll seek out books that push the boundaries of what kidlit is "supposed to do."

    Preference will be give to stories that some might call "edgy" or "controversial." Books that offer exposure to the world our kids are growing up in, as well as imaginary landscapes.

    These will be books that might scare other parents. Books with "language" and "mature content." They may be "upsetting" books. The kind of books that "give kids ideas."

    We like ideas.

    We believe that books are the very best place for kids to encounter scary things and foreign concepts. We believe that books can help prepare kids to engage with the world around them. We believe kids are smart and resilient, great at asking tough questions. We believe they should.

    But we also just like reading kids' books.

    So come if you like amazingly good books! Come if you'd like to be introduced to titles you might not otherwise read! Come if you think books should stir the pot. Come for a new an way to screen your child's summer reading! Come if you want to argue with us! October's Book is : Me and Earl and the dying girl by Jesse Andrews

    Too Heavy a Yoke: Black Women and the Burden of Strength by Chanequa Walker-Barnes
    Charis Books and More, Thursday, October 30 at 7:30pm
    Black women are strong. At least that's what everyone says and how they are constantly depicted. But what, exactly, does this strength entail? And what price do Black women pay for it? In Too Heavy a Yoke: Black Women and the Burden of Strength, Chanequa Walker-Barnes, a psychologist and pastoral theologian, examines the burdensome yoke that the ideology of the Strong Black Woman places upon African American women. She demonstrates how the three core features of the ideology—emotional strength, caregiving, and independence—constrain the lives of African American women and predispose them to physical and emotional health problems, including diabetes, hypertension, and anxiety. She traces the historical, social, and theological influences that resulted in the evolution and maintenance of the Strong Black Woman, including the Christian church, R&B and hip-hop artists, and popular television and film. Drawing upon womanist pastoral theology and twelve-step philosophy, she calls upon pastoral caregivers to aid in the healing of African American women's identities and crafts a twelve-step program for Strong Black Women in recovery.

    Edward J. Larson, The Return of George Washington
    Atlanta History Center, Thursday, October 30 at 8pm
    After leading the Continental Army to victory in the Revolutionary War, George Washington shocked the world: he retired.

    In December 1783, General Washington the most powerful man in the country , stepped down as Commander in Chief and returned to private life at Mount Vernon. Yet as Washington contentedly grew his estate, the fledgling American experiment floundered. Under the Articles of Confederation, the weak central government was unable to raise revenue to pay its debts or reach a consensus on national policy. The states bickered and grew apart. When a Constitutional Convention was established to address these problems, its chances of success looked slim. Jefferson, Madison, and the other Founding Fathers realized that only one man could unite the fractious states: George Washington. Reluctant, yet duty-bound, Washington rode to Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 to preside over the Convention.

    Edward J. Larson, author of The Return of George Washington, is University Professor of History and holds the Hugh & Hazel Darling Chair in Law at Pepperdine University. His numerous books include Summer for the Gods: The Scopes Trial and America’s Continuing Debate over Science and Religion, for which he received a Pulitzer Prize in History. Larson splits his time between Georgia and California.

    Support: This lecture is sponsored by the American Revolution Institute of the Society of the Cincinnati and the Society of the Cincinnati in the State of Georgia.

    Charis Birthday Week: Azar Nafisi (Reading Lolita in Tehran) Reads at Georgia Center for the Book
    Charis Books and More, Monday, November 3 at 7:15pm
    Charis kicks off its 40th anniversary year celebrations by welcoming Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran and The republic of imagination, to Decatur in conjunction with the Georgia Center for the Book. The republic of imagination AMERICA IN THREE BOOKS Ten years ago, Azar Nafisi electrified readers with her million-copy bestseller, Reading Lolita in Tehran, which told the story of how, against the backdrop of morality squads and executions, she taught The Great Gatsby and other classics to her eager students in Iran. In this exhilarating followup, Nafisi has written the book her fans have been waiting for: an impassioned, beguiling, and utterly original tribute to the vital importance of fiction in a democratic society. What Reading Lolita in Tehran was for Iran, The republic of imagination is for America. Taking her cue from a challenge thrown to her in Seattle, where a skeptical reader told her that Americans don’t care about books the way they did back in Iran, she energetically responds to those who say fiction has nothing to teach us. Blending memoir and polemic with close readings of her favorite American novels—The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Babbitt, and The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, among others—she invites us to join her as citizens of her “Republic of Imagination,” a country where the villains are conformity and orthodoxy and the only passport to entry is a free mind and a willingness to dream.

    Aiken Lecture: Charles M. Blow, Fire Shut Up in My Bones
    Atlanta History Center, Monday, November 3 at 8pm
    Fire Shut Up in My Bones is the story of how one of America’s most innovative and respected journalists found his voice by coming to terms with a painful past. Charles Blow’s indelible coming-of-age takes place in an arresting, out-of-time American place: a segregated town in Louisiana where slavery’s legacy felt close, reverberating in the elders’ tales and in the near-constant wash of violence.

    Blow’s mother was a fiercely driven woman with five sons, brass knuckles in her glove box, and a job plucking poultry at a nearby factory. When her philandering husband finally pushed her over the edge, she fired a pistol at his fleeing back, missing every shot thanks to “love that blurred her vision and bent the barrel.” Charles was the baby of the family, fiercely attached to his “do-right,” not “good-time” mother. Until one day — a day that forever divided his life into Before and After — when an older cousin took advantage of the very young boy. Charles’s escape from that world — first to a nearby state university, where he joined a black fraternity despite brutal hazing, then experienced a social and sexual privilege that seemed at first like everything he ever needed — is a searing, redemptive story that will work its way into the deepest chambers of your heart.

    Charles M. Blow has been a columnist at the New York Times since 2008 and has appeared on MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, the BBC, Al Jazeera, and HBO. He lives in Brooklyn with his three children. (jasbro)

    Aiken Lecture: Dick Lehr, The Birth of A Nation: How a Legendary Filmmaker and a Crusading Editor Reignited America’s Civil War
    Atlanta History Center, Thursday, November 6 at 8pm
    In 1915, two men—one a journalist agitator, the other a technically brilliant filmmaker—incited a public confrontation that roiled America, pitting black against white, Hollywood against Boston, and free speech against civil rights. Monroe Trotter and D.W. Griffith fought over the nation’s first blockbuster film, Birth of a Nation, a film that dramatized the Civil War and Reconstruction in a post-Confederate South and transformed the still-young America in profound ways.

    Violent protests against the film flared up across the country. Monroe Trotter, a Boston newspaper editor and African-American rights activist, had stood up to wage a battle on every possible stage across the nation to halt the spread of the movie. This was a revolutionary moment for an increasingly diversified nation struggling to define its identity, where citizens battled not only over the future of cinema, mass media, and marketing, but for American civil liberties and the nascent Civil Rights Movement.

    Dick Lehr, a professor of journalism at Boston University and author of The Birth of A Nation: How a Legendary Filmmaker and a Crusading Editor Reignited America’s Civil War, was a reporter at the Boston Globe for nearly two decades. He has won numerous national and regional journalism awards, and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist in investigative reporting. He is the author of The Fence: A Police Cover-up Along Boston's Racial Divide, a Boston Globe bestseller; and coauthor of the New York Times bestseller and Edgar Award winner Black Mass: Whitey Bulger, the FBI, and a Devil’s Deal, and its sequel Whitey: The Life of America’s Most Notorious Mob Boss.

    Support: The Aiken Lecture Series is supported by the Lucy Rucker Aiken Foundation.
