Lama Surya Das presents "Make Me One with Everything: Buddhist Meditations to Awaken from the Illusion of Separation"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, May 31 at 3pm
"If you've ever felt 'at one' with something-your beloved or your child, a forest trail or a favorite song-then you've experienced inter-meditation," explains Lama Surya Das. Based on Tibetan Buddhism's core insights into the inherent essence of who we are, these teachings of shared spirituality offer both new and experienced meditators a better way to live-not just on the meditation cushion or the yoga mat, but in every moment of their lives.

James Wood, The Nearest Thing to Life
Porter Square Books, Monday, June 1 at 7pm
In this remarkable blend of memoir and criticism, James Wood, noted contributor to the New Yorker, has written a master class on the connections between fiction and life. He argues that, of all the arts, fiction has a unique ability to describe the shape of our lives and to rescue the texture of those lives from death and historical oblivion. The act of reading is understood here as the most sacred and personal of activities, and there are brilliant discussions of individual works--among others, Chekhov's story "The Kiss," W.G. Sebald's The Emigrants, and Penelope Fitzgerald's The Blue Flower.

Wood reveals his own intimate relationship with the written word: we see the development of a provincial boy growing up in a charged Christian environment, the secret joy of his childhood reading, the links he makes between reading and blasphemy, or between literature and music. The final section discusses fiction in the context of exile and homelessness. The Nearest Thing to Life is not simply a brief, tightly argued book by a man commonly regarded as our finest living critic -- it is also an exhilarating personal account that reflects on, and embodies, the fruitful conspiracy between reader and writer (and critic), and asks us to reconsider everything that is at stake when we read and write fiction.

Deborah Cramer, The Narrow Edge
Porter Square Books, Tuesday, June 2 at 7pm
"The Narrow Edge is at once an intimate portrait of the small red knot and a much larger exploration of our wondrous, imperiled world." — Elizabeth Kolbert, author of The Sixth Extinction

Each year tiny sandpipers—red knots—undertake a near miraculous 19,000-mile journey from one end of the earth to the other and back. In this firsthand account, Deborah Cramer accompanies them on their extraordinary odyssey along the length of two continents, tracking birds from remote Tierra del Fuego to the icy Arctic. On the full moon of spring’s highest tides, she seeks out horseshoe crabs, ancient, primordial animals whose eggs are essential to migrating shorebirds, and whose blue blood, unbeknownst to most people, safeguards human health. The Narrow Edge offers unique insight into how the lives of humans, red knots and horseshoe crabs are intertwined, and is an inspiring portrait of loss and resilience, of the tenacity of birds, and the courage of the many people who bird by bird and beach by beach, keep red knots flying.

Deborah Cramer lives with her family at the edge of a salt marsh in Gloucester, Massachusetts, where she awaits the spring return of alewives in tidal creeks and migrating sandpipers and herons into the marshes and sand bars. She writes about science, nature, and the environment, and is currently a visiting scholar at MIT.

Andrea Chapin, The Tutor
Porter Square Books, Wednesday, June 3 at 7pm
"The Tutor is a terrific achievement, one that in recounting the story of Katharine and Will allows us a glimpse into the workings of Shakespeare’s mind and heart." —James Shapiro, author of 1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare

"The Tutor plunges fearlessly into the uncharted years of history’s greatest bard to give us a sumptuous, page-turning account of 1590s England in the brutal throes of the Tudor dynasty… I was completely captivated. Andrea Chapin is a writer to watch." —Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife

“History springs to vivid life in this beautifully written novel about a young William Shakespeare and the passionate, intelligent woman who changed the course of his life—not to mention literature—forever.”—Christina Baker Kline, author of The Orphan Train

A bold and captivating novel about love, passion, and ambition that imagines the muse of William Shakespeare and the tumultuous year they spend together.

The year is 1590, and Queen Elizabeth’s Spanish Armada victory has done nothing to quell her brutal persecution of the English Catholics. Katharine de L'Isle is living at Lufanwal Hall, the manor of her uncle, Sir Edward. Taught by her cherished uncle to read when a child, Katharine is now a thirty-one-year-old widow. She has resigned herself to a life of reading and keeping company with her cousins and their children. But all that changes when the family's priest, who had been performing Catholic services in secret, is found murdered. Faced with threats of imprisonment and death, Sir Edward is forced to flee the country, leaving Katharine adrift in a household rife with turmoil.

At this time of unrest, a new schoolmaster arrives from Stratford, a man named William Shakespeare. Coarse, quick-witted, and brazenly flirtatious, Shakespeare swiftly disrupts what fragile peace there is left at Lufanwal. Katharine is at first appalled by the boldness of this new tutor, but when she learns he is a poet, and one of talent, things between them begin to shift, and soon Katharine finds herself drawn into Shakespeare’s verse, and his life, in ways that will change her forever.

Inventive and absorbing, The Tutor is a masterful work of historical fiction, casting Shakespeare in a light we've never seen.

Andrea Chapin acted professionally, touring Germany in Edward Albee’s Seascape. She has been an editor at movie, theater, and literary magazines, including The Paris Review, Conjunctions and The Lincoln Center Theater Review. She has written for More, Redbook, Town & Country, Self, Martha Stewart Living, and other publications. She lives in New York City with her husband and two children.

Ali Berlow, The Food Activist Handbook
Porter Square Books, Thursday, June 4 at 7pm
Small steps can create big changes in your community's food quality and food security, helping to get more healthy food to more people and support a better food system. Ali Berlow shows you dozens of things that anyone can do, from creating a neighborhood kitchen for preserving fresh food to mapping farmland, connecting food pantries with food producers, starting a school garden, and organizing a community composting initiative. Every action you take can help keep farmers on the land and family farms intact, keep money in the local economy, reduce the carbon footprint associated with food transportation, and preserve local landscapes. If you've had enough of E. coli scares, disappearing farmland, pesticide problems, and hunger in your community, this inspiring book will show you exactly how one person really can make a difference.

Born and raised in Madison, food has always been a part of Ali's life. During her college days at the UW-Madison, Ali cooked for cash at fancy catered gigs and flipped burgers at Dotty Dumpling’s Dowry. Wanderlust and fluency in Swahili sent her abroad to Kenya and Somalia. Finding her way back to America, pit stops included her ancestral lands of Northern Germany and France, Italy and various Caribbean isles. Married, two boys, an old black lab and a few cats later — Ali is home and lives on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. She cooks to nurture, to create. She writes passionately about food and all that it means — delving deep into our senses and our emotions.

As the former founding executive director of Island Grown Initiative, a non-profit that supports the small family farms and farmers of the island, Ali is committed to raising awareness and raising consciousness about the food that we feed to our families.

Her essay series A Cook's Notebook airs periodically on NPR member stations. All essays can be licensed and downloaded from the PRX. Ali and her husband Sam Berlow, launched Edible Vineyard in April ‘09. A quarterly print magazine, EV is dedicated to the local community on Martha’s Vineyard, featuring stories and recipes from the Island.
