Evening Book Discussion
Holmes Public Library, Tuesday, April 25 at 7:30pm
     
Evening Book Discussion
 
This month, the Evening Book Group is reading and discussing our Community Read, A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
 
The Appalachian Trail stretches from Georgia to Maine and covers some of the most breathtaking terrain in America–majestic mountains, silent forests, sparking lakes. If you’re going to take a hike, it’s probably the place to go. And Bill Bryson is surely the most entertaining guide you’ll find. He introduces us to the history and ecology of the trail and to some of the other hardy (or just foolhardy) folks he meets along the way–and a couple of bears. Already a classic, A Walk in the Woods will make you long for the great outdoors (or at least a comfortable chair to sit and read in).

Where the Roads All End: The Marshall Family’s Kalahari Photography
Geological Lecture Hall, Wednesday, May 10 at 6pm
The Marshall family, which filmed and studied the Ju/’hoansi of the Kalahari Desert, created one of the most significant visual anthropology projects of the twentieth century. Sponsored by the Peabody Museum, the Marshalls made eight trips to Namibia (then South West Africa) in the 1950s to document some of the world’s last surviving self-sufficient hunter-gatherers, the Ju/’hoansi and G/wi people (earlier known pejoratively as “Bushmen” and later as the !Kung and the San). Using the Marshall family’s collection of stereo views taken with a Stereo Realist camera, Ilisa Barbash will discuss the Marshalls’ archive of over 40,000 photographs, the subject of the new book, Where the Roads All End: Anthropology and Photography in the Kalahari (Peabody Museum Press). The lecture will be followed by a reception and book signing. Books will be available for purchase at the event, at the front desk of the Peabody Museum, and from Harvard University Press.
