Frances Crowe reads from her memoir Finding My Radical Soul Sunday, Feb. 1 at 2 pm
Broadside Bookshop, Sunday, February 1 at 2pm
Finding My Radical Soul: A Memoir by Frances Crowe The Valley's own Frances Crowe, nationally known and locally beloved, writes about the experiences that formed her as an activist. She recounts her developing political awareness in the small-town Missouri of her childhood; the beginnings of independence in New York where she solidified her views against war; her move to Northampton and involvement with the American Friends Service Committee and her growing commitment to activism on a number of fronts. She helped conscientious objectors during the Vietnam War, protested against nuclear power, American involvement in Nicaragua, against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, against the death penalty and drones. She has inspired hundreds. Here is the story of an exemplary life, told in Frances’ own down-to-earth and uncompromising voice.

Andrew Zimbalist Presents His New Book, Circus Maximus, Wed., February 4, 2015 at 7 pm
Broadside Bookshop, Wednesday, February 4 at 7pm
Circus Maximus: The Economic Gamble Behind Hosting the Olympics and the World Cup Noted sports economist Andrew Zimbalist looks at the mind-boggling sums spent on hosting the Olympics and the World Cup, sometimes by countries in precarious financial condition. Hosting these games is touted by the promoters and politicians as a huge economic boon, particularly for developing countries. Through careful case studies of Barcelona, Sochi, Rio, and London, Andrew Zimbalist challenges this notion, finding that though the wealthy may profit, other classes not only do not but sometimes find themselves worse off. The result is instability and political unrest. Andrew Zimbalist is the author of numerous books on the economics of sport, among them The Sabermetric Revolution; National Pastime: How Americans Play Baseball and the Rest of the World Plays Soccer; and May The Best Team Win: Baseball Economics and Public Policy.

Rebels in Paradise: Sketches of Northampton Abolitionists Bruce Laurie

Rebels in Paradise is a fascinating narrative of the abolitionist movement in Northampton and of Northampton's involvement in the Undergound Railroad. Through portraits of activists in the movement such as David Ruggles, John Payson Williams, Sylvester Judd, Jr., Henry Sherwood Gere, and Erastus Hopkins, Bruce Laurie offers us a picture of Northampton as the site of changing class and race relationships and a home to new ideas in a time of broader national change.

Jeanne Birdsall (The Penderwicks, The Penderwicks on Gardam Street, The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, Nancy and Plum, The Penderwicks in Spring, The Penderwicks 3-book Boxed Set, The Penderwicks Collection)

Jeanne Birdsall grew up in the suburbs west of Philadelphia, where she attended wonderful public schools. Jeanne had lots of great teachers, but her favorites were: Mrs. Corkhill, sixth grade, who encouraged her intellectual curiosity; Mr. Tremonte, eighth grade algebra, who taught Jeanne to love and respect math; and Miss Basehore, second and fourth year Latin, to whom Jeanne (and Mr. Penderwick) will be forever grateful. Although she first decided to become a writer when she was ten years old, it took Jeanne until she was forty-one to get started. In the years in between, Jeanne had many strange jobs to support herself while working hard as a photographer–the kind that makes art. Some of Jeanne's photographs are included in the permanent collections of museums, including the Smithsonian and the Philadelphia Art Museum. Jeanne's home now is with her husband in Northampton, Massachusetts. Their house is old and comfortable, full of unruly animals, and surrounded by gardens. (added from Random House)… (more)
