Manchester: Is Belgium the bellwether for a decentralizing Europe? An interview with Sam Humes, author of "Belgium: Long United, Long Divided"
Northshire Bookstore, Friday, January 16, 2015 at 6pm
Sam Humes, former director of Boston University graduate program at the University of Brussels, in interview with John Hyde, Williams College professor of History emeritus - Belgium: Long United, Long Divided.

Is Belgium the bellwether for a decentralizing Europe? Don’t miss this fascinating discussion describing the traditions and transitions that over two thousand years have developed in Belgium in a sense of shared identity, common government, and a centralized nation-state - and then over a few recent decades paved the way for Flemish-Walloon schism that now threatens to break up Belgium. It responds to the question: Why does a government, unified for more than 600 years, no longer seem capable of holding together a linguistically divided country?

Samuel Humes lived in Belgium from 1984 till 2008, where he was most recently director of Boston University's Brussels campus. He is a graduate of Williams College (BA), the University of Pennsylvania (MGA), and Leiden University (Drs and PhD). His latest book is Managing the Multinational: Confronting the Global-Local Dilemma; earlier publications include The Structure of Local Government Throughout the World which has been described as a seminal work in its field. He resides in Williamstown, MA.

Manchester: John Morse, President and Publisher of Merriam-Webster presents his talk "Webster’s Dictionary of 1864"
Northshire Bookstore, Friday, January 23, 2015 at 6pm
This past fall marked the 150th anniversary of a landmark in the history of American dictionary making, the 1864 edition of Webster’s Dictionary. Commonly referred to as the Unabridged and edited during the turmoil of the American Civil War, the 1864 edition was the first comprehensive revision of Noah’s Webster’s dictionary since his death in 1843. Incorporating advances in the understanding of the history of languages and a more rigorous view of how definitions should be structured, the publisher, then known as the G. & C. Merriam Co., assembled a scholarly editorial team to create the dictionary, establishing the process still used by dictionary makers today. Hear John Morse, President and Publisher of Merriam-Webster, speak about this revolution in dictionary making and how it reflected the world in which it was created, as well as the lessons it has for today’s editors at Merriam-Webster as they once again take on the task of revising the Unabridged.

Manchester - Megan Mayhew Bergman "Almost Famous Women"
Northshire Bookstore, Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 7pm
One of the most anticipated books of the year, Vermont author Megan Mayhew Bergman presents Almost Famous Women. From “a top-notch emerging writer with a crisp and often poetic voice and wily, intelligent humor” (The Boston Globe): a collection of stories that explores the lives of talented, gutsy women throughout history.

The fascinating lives of the characters in Almost Famous Women have mostly been forgotten, but their stories are burning to be told. Now Megan Mayhew Bergman, author of Birds of a lesser paradise, resurrects these women, lets them live in the reader’s imagination, so we can explore their difficult choices. Nearly every story in this dazzling collection is based on a woman who attained some celebrity—she raced speed boats or was a conjoined twin in show business; a reclusive painter of renown; a member of the first all-female, integrated swing band.

Megan Mayhew Bergman was raised in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. She now lives on a small farm in Vermont with her veterinarian husband, two daughters, four dogs, three cats, two goats, and a handful of chickens. In November 2010, Megan was elected Justice of the Peace for the town of Shaftsbury. She occasionally teaches literature at Bennington College and serves on the Board of Directors for the Governor's Institutes of Vermont. She writes a regular sustainability column for Salon. Megan studied anthropology at Wake Forest University, and completed graduate degrees at Duke University (MA) and Bennington College (MFA). She was a fiction scholar and fellow at Breadloaf and received a fellowship from the Millay Colony for the Arts.

Charles Johnson - Ice Ship: The Epic Voyage of the Polar Adventurer Fram - Slideshow presentation and audience discussion
Northshire Bookstore, Friday, January 30, 2015 at 6pm
Charles Johnson's fascinating look at polar exploration, maritime adventure, and wooden ships, will captivate readers of such books as The Endurance, In the Heart of the Sea, and The Last Place on Earth. With more than 100 original photographs, Ice Ship brings the Fram to life and light.

In the golden age of polar exploration (from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s), many an expedition set out to answer the big question--was the Arctic a continent, an open ocean beyond a barrier of ice, or an ocean covered with ice? No one knew, for the ice had kept its secret well; ships trying to penetrate it all failed, often catastrophically. Norway's charismatic scientist-explorer Fridtjof Nansen, convinced that it was a frozen ocean, intended to prove it in a novel if risky way: by building a ship capable of withstanding the ice, joining others on an expedition, then drifting wherever it took them, on a relentless one-way journey into discovery and fame . . . or oblivion. Ice Ship is the story of that extraordinary ship, the Fram, from conception to construction, through twenty years of three epic expeditions, to its final resting place as a museum.

Manchester: John Vaillant "The Jaguar's Children"
Northshire Bookstore, Saturday, January 31, 2015 at 7pm
From John Vaillant, the best-selling author of The Tiger and The Golden Spruce, this debut novel is a gripping survival story of a young man trapped, perhaps fatally, during a border crossing. Both an outstanding suspense novel and an arresting window into the relationship between two great cultures, The Jaguar's Children shows how deeply interconnected all of us, always, are. Hector is trapped. The water truck, sealed to hide its human cargo, has broken down. The coyotes have taken all the passengers' money for a mechanic and have not returned. Those left behind have no choice but to wait. Hector finds a name in his friend Cesar's phone. AnniMac. A name with an American number. He must reach her, both for rescue and to pass along the message Cesar has come so far to deliver. But are his messages going through? Over four days, as water and food run low, Hector tells how he came to this desperate place. His story takes us from Oaxaca -- its rich culture, its rapid change -- to the dangers of the border. It exposes the tangled ties between Mexico and El Norte -- land of promise and opportunity, homewrecker and unreliable friend. And it reminds us of the power of storytelling and the power of hope, as Hector fights to ensure his message makes it out of the truck and into the world.

Manchester: Gregg Swainn - "Mah Jongg: The Art of the Game", Slideshow presentation
Northshire Bookstore, Sunday, February 1, 2015 at 2pm
The first book to fully capture the story of the exotic and exciting game of Mahjong or "Mah Jongg," offering an intimate look at the history of the game as well as the visual beauty of the tiles.

When authors Ann Israel and Gregg Swain began playing Mahjong, they were unaware of the vintage collections that existed not only in the United States but also as far ranging as Africa to New Zealand. Slowly, they started to collect their own sets of Mahjong and as their collections grew, so did their appreciation of the history of, and interest in the game.

Finding few references, Israel and Swain set out to create a book that chronicles the early beginnings of the game and documents Mahjong sets from the most basic, made simply of paper, to the most precious materials such as ivory and mother-of-pearl. Recognized and respected scholars and game experts have collaborated with Israel and Swain, contributing important chapters on the game's history and its pieces as well as technical information on the tiles. Lastly, great collectors from around the globe have shared their incredible sets and memories for the first time in one book for everyone to enjoy.

With hundreds of beautiful new images by renowned photographer, Michel Arnaud, and including historical documentation and ephemera, Mah Jongg: The Art of the Game fills the void between the past and today's game, providing vision, inspiration and resources. Anyone who has ever been intrigued by a Mahjong tile will find in these pages visually stunning photographs that will entice them into becoming an enthusiast of the timeless game of Mahjong.
