World in Your Library Lecture Series #1
Baxter Memorial Library, Wednesday, September 17 at 7:30pm
Eric Hooglund, a Maine native, is professor emeritus of Middle East Studies at Lund University in Sweden, an internationally recognized scholar of contemporary Iran, and editor of the journal Middle East Critique. During a 40-year academic career, he has taught about the culture, international relations, and politics of the Middle East at colleges in Asia, Europe and the United States, including Oxford University and both Bates and Bowdoin in Maine. He is the author or editor of 7 books and more than 100 scholarly articles. He currently resides in Belgrade Lakes.
"The Middle East in Down East: Waterville, 1900-1960" - In the early 20th century, the small central Maine city of Waterville was home to one of the largest Middle East ethnic communities in the United States. This presentation focuses on the history of the immigration of ethnic Arabs to Waterville from Lebanon, which was part of the Ottoman Empire's province of Syria from 1517 to 1918. The community was well established in Waterville by 1914, attracted there by the availability of work in the city's several textile and paper products mills. The examination of the early history will focus on: the immigrants' residential neighborhoods; the creation of religious and social institutions to help pass along to the immigrants' 1,000+ Waterville-born children their unique customs and traditions; the community's emphasis on education, which enabled an unusually high percentage of the first generation of 'Lebanese-Americans'—who were graduating from high school during the 1930s and 1940s—to create businesses or find professional employment; and the impact of the closing of the textile mills during the 1950s on Waterville generally and the Lebanese community specifically.

Lisa Kent: The Peace Cottage *at Longfellow Books*
Longfellow Books, Thursday, September 18 at 7pm
The Peace Cottage by Lisa Kent Thursday, September 18th, 7:00pm at Longfellow Books No one is prepared for the death of a loved one – least of all Lucy Cook, whose life shatters with the news of her husband’s death. Alienated and alone, Lucy cannot stay in Vermont. Packing up her two daughters and their life, she escapes the demons of her past to find peace and renewal on the coast of Maine. Her new home doesn’t offer her the peace of mind she craves as she learns there are mysteries here she shouldn’t be a part of – and the man who owns her cottage certainly doesn’t shed any light. Learning to live with uncertainty, Lucy’s strength overpowers her fears of being alone as she navigates the strange waters of her new life. A novel of loss, love, and hope, Peace Cottage re-defines what it means to build a life, and to build a home. Lisa Monique Kent is a librarian and first-time author of the novel Peace Cottage, a story about hope and new beginnings. She lives with her family and pets in rural Vermont, and is currently working on her second book, Vinehart Farm. Join us to hear debut author, Lisa Kent, read from her touching novel, ask your questions and get your books signed!

Jon Derek Croteau: My Thinning Years: Starving the Gay Within *at Longfellow Books*
Longfellow Books, Friday, September 26 at 7pm
My Thinning Years: Starving the Gay Within by Jon Derek Croteau Friday, September 26th, 7:00pm at Longfellow Books As a child, Jon tried desperately to be his father’s version of the all-American boy, denying his gayness in a futile attempt to earn the love and respect of an abusive man. With this he built a deep, internalized homophobia that made him want to disappear rather than live with the truth about himself. That denial played out in the forms of anorexia, bulimia, and obsessive running, which consumed him as an adolescent and young adult. It wasn’t until a grueling yet transformative Outward Bound experience that Jon began to face his sexual identity. This exploration continued as he entered college and started the serious work of sorting through years of repressed anger to separate from his father’s control and condemnation. My Thinning Years is an inspiring story of courage, creativity, and the will to live--and of recreating the definition of family to include friends, relatives, and teachers who support you in realizing your true self. "Jon Derek Croteau's powerful new book is a beacon shining on the puzzle of life." -Bob Dotson, New York Times bestselling author of American Story, a Lifetime Search for Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things “Jon Derek Croteau writes with unstinting honesty, and courageously explores the harmful effects of bullies long after they’ve left the scene. But he also reveals the plain fact that the greatest bully we have to win over is often the one within us.” -James Lecesne, co-founder, The Trevor Project Jon Derek Croteau, Ed.D., is on a mission to make a difference and help those who are in need, disenfranchised, or impacted by discrimination. A senior partner at a leadership consultancy for higher education and healthcare clients across the globe, he is also deeply involved in several foundations and nonprofits, where he champions for equal rights and effective leadership. The author of three academic books on staff development and leadership as well as numerous articles for journals and periodicals, he is a highly sought-out speaker on the topics of eating disorder recovery, body image, and coming out. Jon legally married his partner, Justin Croteau, in 2007 and currently resides in Vermont. Join us to hear Jon share his inspiring journey first hand, ask your questions and get your books signed!
