Barbara Ehrenreich, Living with a Wild God at the Cambridge Public Library, in conversation with John Summers
Porter Square Books, Thursday, April 17 at 6:30pm
Join Porter Square Books at the Cambridge Public Library for Barbara Ehrenreich in conversation with John Summers. In middle age, Ehrenreich came across the journal she had kept during her tumultuous adolescence and set out to reconstruct that quest, which had taken her to the study of science and through a cataclysmic series of uncanny-or as she later learned to call them, "mystical"-experiences. A staunch atheist and rationalist, she is profoundly shaken by the implications of her life-long search. Part memoir, part philosophical and spiritual inquiry, Living with a Wild God brings an older woman's wry and erudite perspective to a young girl's uninhibited musings on the questions that, at one point or another, torment us all. Ehrenreich's most personal book ever will spark a lively and heated conversation about religion and spirituality, science and morality, and the "meaning of life." Living with a Wild God combines intellectual rigor with a frank account of the inexplicable, in Ehrenreich's singular voice, to produce a true literary achievement. Barbara Ehrenreich is the author of fourteen books, including the bestselling Nickel and Dimed and Bait and Switch. She lives in Virginia. John Summers is the editor in chief of The Baffler and founder and president of the Baffler Foundation. He’s the author of an essay collection, Every Fury on Earth, and editor of three collections of cultural criticism: The Politics of Truth: Selected Writings of C. Wright Mills, Dwight Macdonald’s Masscult and Midcult, and James Agee’s Cotton Tenants. He received his PhD in intellectual history from the University of Rochester in 2006. From 2000 to 2007 he taught social studies at Harvard University. He still lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Please Note: This is an offsite event at the Cambridge Public Library.

Judith Nies, Unreal City: Las Vegas, Black Mesa, and the Fate of the West
Porter Square Books, Thursday, April 17 at 7pm
An epic struggle over land, water, and power is erupting in the American West and the halls of Washington, DC. It began when a 4,000-square-mile area of Arizona desert called Black Mesa was divided between the Hopi and Navajo tribes. To the outside world, it was a land struggle between two fractious Indian tribes; to political insiders and energy corporations, it was a divide-and-conquer play for the 21 billion tons of coal beneath Black Mesa. Today, that coal powers cheap electricity for Los Angeles, a new water aqueduct into Phoenix, and the neon dazzle of Las Vegas. Journalist and historian Judith Nies has been tracking this story for nearly four decades. She follows the money and tells us the true story of wealth and water, mendacity, and corruption at the highest levels of business and government. Amid the backdrop of the breathtaking desert landscape, "Unreal City" shows five cultures colliding--Hopi, Navajo, global energy corporations, Mormons, and US government agencies--resulting in a battle over resources and the future of the West. Las Vegas has much to teach us in an era of climate change. The desert city may still attract 39 million visitors a year, but tourists don’t see a city with the highest rates of foreclosure, unemployment, or suicide in the nation. They don’t see the astonishing drop in the water level of Lake Mead, or follow the route of “the new Chinatown,” a multi-billion dollar water-pipeline into a mountain aquifer 200-miles north. The same mining and construction companies operate globally and are spending millions to convince us that climate change isn’t happening and coal can be “clean.” But for Las Vegas, and for the United States, the mirage of limitless supply and limitless wealth. Judith Nies is the award-winning author of three nonfiction books- The Girl I Left Behind: A Personal History of the 1960s, Nine women: Portraits from the American Radical Tradition, and Native American history: A Chronology, which won the Phi Alpha Theta prize in international history. Nies’s journalism, book reviews, and essays have appeared in the New York Times, The Boston Globe, Orion, Harvard Review, Women’s Review of Books, and American Voice. She lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Steven Cohen, The Practical Negotiator
Porter Square Books, Tuesday, April 22 at 7pm
“Steven Cohen’s book, The Practical Negotiator is a well-written practical guide to the art and science of negotiation. Reflecting the voice of a highly skilled negotiation trainer and mentor, this “hands on” primer offers a nuanced understanding of the benefits and opportunities resulting from an interest-based approach to negotiations. I found the author’s practical advice, offered in a concise Q and A format, to be pure gold.” Bennett G. Picker, Esquire, author of Mediation Practice Guide “A treasure trove filled with golden nuggets, based on sound, practical advice and deep understanding of how best to handle negotiations. Cohen’s extensive international experience shines through, and the wide range of real-life situations covered, makes this a book to refer back to again and again.” Brian Gosschalk, Head of Presidents’ Office, Ipsos Steven P. Cohen’s careers in government and politics, in real estate development and management, and as a negotiation consultant for many of the largest businesses in the world have given him ample opportunity to hone both his own negotiating skills and those of his clients and students. In addition to his private sector consulting, he has been a professor since the mid-1990s at Groupe HEC (Paris) and Brandeis University’s International Business School (Boston), as well as a visiting professor at other business schools in the United States and several European countries.

Frannie Lindsay and Gwen Jensen, Our Vanishing and Birthright
Porter Square Books, Wednesday, April 23 at 7pm
“Endlessly inventive and packed with small surprises, these poems turn the ordinary inside-out. Their quiet elegance belies their urgency, always underlying and makes the language all the more powerful for its restraint…Frannie Lindsay is among the very best of her generation, and Our vanishing is one of the most honest, moving books I’ve read in years.” Chase Twitchell "Birthright is a collection of poetry begs to be read again and again, with the poet's masterful use of rhythm and form, of repetition..." Comstock Review Frannie Lindsay’s previous volumes of poetry are Mayweed, Lamb, and Where She Always Was. Her awards include the Washington Prize, the Perugia Award, the May Swensen Award, and The Missouri Review Prize. Her work has been featured in Ted Kooser’s column “American Life in Poetry,” and on Writer’s Almanac and Poetry Daily. She has held fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and has received several Pushcart nominations. Gwendolyn Jensen’s first book of poetry is Birthright. Her poems have been widely published in both electronic and print journals, including The Beloit Poetry Journal, The Harvard Review, Tears in the fence, The Malahat Review, Measure, Salamander, and Sanskrit Literary Arts Magazine. She serves as a board member of Off the Grid Press. Her second book, As if toward beauty, will be published some time next year.

Michael Tougias, Rescue of Bounty in Superstorm Sandy
Porter Square Books, Thursday, April 24 at 7pm
The harrowing story of the sinking and rescue of Bounty—the tall ship used in the classic 1962 movie Mutiny on the Bounty—which was caught in the path of Hurricane Sandy with sixteen aboard On Thursday, October 25, 2012, Captain Robin Walbridge made the fateful decision to sail Bounty from New London, Connecticut, to St. Petersburg, Florida. Walbridge was well aware that a hurricane was forecast to travel north from the Caribbean toward the eastern seaboard. Yet the captain was determined to sail. As he explained to his crew of fifteen: a ship is always safer at sea than in port. He intended to sail “around the hurricane” and told the crew that anyone who did not want to come on the voyage could leave the ship—there would be no hard feelings. As fate would have it, no one took the captain up on his offer. Four days into the voyage, Superstorm Sandy made an almost direct hit on Bounty. The vessel’s failing pumps could not keep up with the incoming water. The ship began to lose power as it was beaten and rocked by hurricane winds that spanned eight hundred miles. A few hours later, in the dark of night, the ship suddenly overturned ninety miles off the North Carolina coast in the “Graveyard of the Atlantic,” sending the crew tumbling into an ocean filled with towering thirty-foot waves. The coast guard then launched one of the most complex and massive rescues in its history, flying two Jayhawk helicopter crews into the hurricane and lowering rescue swimmers into the raging seas again and again, despite the danger to their own lives. In the uproar heard across American media in the days following, a single question persisted: Why did the captain decide to sail? Through hundreds of hours of interviews with the crew members, their families, and the coast guard, the masterful duo of Michael J. Tougias and Douglas A. Campbell creates an in-depth portrait of the enigmatic Captain Walbridge, his motivations, and what truly occurred aboard Bounty during those terrifying days at sea. Michael J. Tougias is the author of a number of books, including Overboard!, Finest Hours (with Casey Sherman), Fatal forecast, and Ten Hours Until Dawn: The True Story of Heroism and Tragedy Aboard the Can Do. He is a sought-after lecturer who gives more than seventy presentations each year. He lives in Massachusetts.
