Healthy Building Summit 2019
Monday, June 24
9:00 AM – 12:30 PM EDT
Harvard Gutman Library, 6 Appian Way, Cambridge
RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/healthy-building-summit-2019-tickets-58596823677
Cost:  $139.99 – $169.99

Learn how Harvard University is turning research into action by using their campus as a testbed to optimize for health in their spaces and throughout the supply chain. You will learn the latest science related to health and the built environment and how to translate this research into practice with tangible takeaways and actions. 

Dr. Joseph Allen, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, will provide a high-level overview of several aspects of health in the built environment and will specifically communicate the science behind chemical classes of concern commonly found in building products. Heather Henriksen, Managing Director of Harvard University’s Office for Sustainability, will explain how the University is reducing these chemical classes from its campus. With a diverse array of stakeholders in attendance, we’ll then explore the opportunities, challenges, and barriers associated with healthier buildings, and collectively identify effective, scalable solutions. Together, we will leave this summit informed and ready to pursue the next steps to creating healthier buildings and communities.
3 LU/HSW AIA credits are available

Who should attend:
Building owners and operators
Professionals in architecture, design, and capital projects including construction, sub-contractors, specification writers
Manufacturers of building and interior products
Anyone who designs, builds, or operates buildings!

2018 Summit Recap:
Our expert panel came together with a mission to inform architects, designers, and corporations how vital healthy buildings are for improving financial costs, the environment, and the health of each and every individual living and working in these buildings.
We heard about the multitude of ways that buildings can affect us, whether through the air we breathe or the materials that surround us indoors.

In the year since our last Healthy Building Summit, we have been busy keeping this conversation alive: we formed a Health and Wellness Roundtable. We learned about Well V2, heard about the effects of indoor air quality on cognitive function, and discussed flame retardants in building products. We heard from leading manufacturers about their commitment to promoting transparency, eliminating chemicals of concern, and to evolving the Mindful Materials program. Now that we’re informed of the issues and understand the many facets that come into creating healthy buildings, we now face the next issue: how do we act on this knowledge and drive change?

Join us at Harvard University on Monday, June 24th as we roll up our sleeves and get to work on improving materials transparency and eliminating chemical classes of concern from the built environment.

More Than Words Bookstore, 242 East Berkeley Street, Boston
RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/master-sergeant-cedric-king-at-more-than-words-tickets-63441056909

Join Master Sergeant Cedric King at More Than Words. Hear him tell his inspirational story and discuss his book. The Making Point. Just 21 months after losing both legs, King completed the Boston Marathon, running on prosthetic blades. He has gone on to compete in a number of physically daunting events, including a 70.3-mile half Ironman Triathlon, the 2014 New York City Marathon, and the 48.6-mile Disney Marathon series. There, he successfully completed four runs in four days — a 5k, 10k, half marathon, and full marathon. King shares his inspirational story of endurance with audiences across the country, including schools, churches, the National Football League, and Fortune 500 companies. Just as he led and motivated men in combat, he now leads and motivates others to see the possibilities in their own lives.

Master Sergeat Cedric King entered the United States Army in 1995. During a career that took him from an infantry private to a position of leadership in the elite Rangers, King graduated from a number of distinguished Army schools, including The United States Army Jumpmaster Course, United States Army Pathfinder course, Air Assault course, The United States Army Ranger Course, and others. He is the recipient of the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart, the Meritorious Service Medal, and is a four-time Best Ranger Competition participant.

On July 25, 2012, during his second tour in Afghanistan, King was severely injured by an improvised explosive device. The blast caused major internal injuries, permanent loss to part of his right arm and hand, and the amputation of both legs. He applied the same determined, can-do mindset to his recovery that he had relied on to succeed as an elite Army Ranger. With the love and support of his wife Khieda and daughters Amari and Khayma, he began rebuilding his life.

Inside the Five-Sided Box:  Lessons from a Lifetime of Leadership in the Pentagon
Tuesday, June 25
6:00 PM
Cambridge Public Library, 449 Broadway, CambridgeHarvard Book Store welcomes renowned statesman and former United States Secretary of Defense ASH CARTER for a discussion of his new memoir, Inside the Five-Sided Box: Lessons from a Lifetime of Leadership in the Pentagon.

About Inside the Five-Sided Box
The Pentagon is the headquarters of the single largest institution in America: the Department of Defense. The D.O.D. employs millions of Americans. It owns and operates more real estate, and spends more money, than any other entity. It manages the world’s largest and most complex information network and performs more R&D than Apple, Google, and Microsoft combined. Most important, the policies it carries out, in war and peace, impact the security and freedom of billions of people around the globe.

Yet to most Americans, the dealings of the D.O.D. are a mystery, and the Pentagon nothing more than an opaque five-sided box that they regard with a mixture of awe and suspicion.

In this new book, former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter demystifies the Pentagon and sheds light on all that happens inside one of the nation’s most iconic, and most closely guarded, buildings. Drawn from Carter’s thirty-six years of leadership experience in the D.O.D., this is the essential book for understanding the challenge of defending America in a dangerous world – and imparting a trove of incisive lessons that can guide leaders in any complex organization.

In these times of great disruption and danger, the need for Ash Carter’s authoritative and pragmatic account is more urgent than ever.

Mass. Marijuana: Challenges with social equity, the illicit market, and pesticides
Wednesday, June 26
7:30 AM – 10:30 AM EDT
MCLE New England, 10 Winter Place, Boston
RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/54956934671
Cost:  $10

Mass. Marijuana Forum: Key policy challenges
Exploring new solutions for social equity. Plus: Curbing the illicit market; and the Colorado experience with pesticides
The Massachusetts cannabis industry has expanded at a steady pace this year with new adult-use dispensaries -- now 19 statewide -- opening every month. But nagging questions persist about creating greater participation for minority business owners in the new industry. Is there a legislative or industry solution to meet the mandate to provide opportunities for those in communities disproportionately impacted by the War on Drugs? In a capital-intensive industry without traditional lending options, what's the way forward for entrepreneurial diversity? 

Meanwhile, the lure of the illicit market has remained strong, taking away would-be customers and diminishing the revenue and public safety impact of adult-use legalization. What can be done to combat the illicit market? Also, hear from a leading regulator in Colorado on how that state successfully introduced pesticides into its industry's cannabis agricultural process.
Join the State House News Forum for a provocative and informative discussion on the key issues facing regulators, elected officials, and entrepreneurs looking for opportunities. 

Networking is 7:30-8 am. Program begins at 8:05.
Mass. adult-use cannabis overview: Shawn Collins, Executive Director of the Cannabis Control Commission
Panel 1: The call for social equity business formation — what will really work?
Can Massachusetts create a model for providing abundant entry points for minority business operators and what is the role of social consumption and delivery in creating entrepreneurial opportunity? What progress has been made and how can entrepreneurs tap resources to build businesses? A group of leading policy-makers and industry experts will discuss the issues, including Cannabis Control Commission Chairman Steven Hoffman, Senator Sonia Chang-Diaz, Kim Napoli, Director of Diversity Programs at NETA, and Keith Cooper, President of the Cannabis Dispensary Association and CEO of Revolutionary Clinics.
Keynote: John Scott, Colorado Dept. of Agriculture Pesticides Section Chief on What Massachusetts can learn from Colorado about pesticides in cannabis cultivation. 
Panel 2: The illicit cannabis market is still thriving. What should be done?
It's less expensive and often more available than legal cannabis. And now that cannabis is legal, illegal product sales are flourishing. Join regulators and business owners to explore the trend and the possibility of new policies to combat the illicit market. Panelists include Britte McBride, Commissioner at the Cannabis Control Commission; and State Senator Michael Moore, who has drafted legislation: An Act to enhance enforcement against unlicensed marijuana operators.
The program is in formation and will be announced shortly. Contact George Donnelly at gdonnelly at bostoneconomy.com with questions about content or sponsorship.

This month join us for a two-part conversation. Shannon McDermott of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority will talk about the first five months of ferry service from Lovejoy to Fan Pier. This year-long pilot provides water transportation connections between North Station and the Seaport for employers of sponsoring companies and members of the public.
The second part of the conversation will focus on Ben Lynch, Chapter 91 Waterways Program Chief at the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), and his team. Join us for a discussion with the keepers and enforcers of public access to Boston's waterfront and all things Chapter 91. Meet the newest members of the Waterways team and learn first hand what's most important to their work and efforts to keep Boston Harbor publicly accessible and activated year round.

9:30 AM - 11:00 AM, OPENING SESSION (continental breakfast available starting at 8:30 AM)
Michael Monaghan, Director of Risk Management & Audit Services, Financial Administration
Opening Remarks
Katie Lapp, Executive Vice President, Harvard University
Keynote Address: Climate and Health – The Greatest Public Health Challenge of Our Time, and What You Can Do About It
Gina McCarthy, Director of the Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and former U.S. EPA Administrator
Our dependence on fossil fuels is changing weather patterns and temperatures are rising, leading to more extreme weather events, the spread of vector-borne diseases, harmful air pollutants, and food insecurity that all affect our health. But we also know that every step we take to tackle climate change creates major health benefits: cleaner air, cleaner water, and safer places for us to live, work and play. We can all do so much more in our lives, in our homes, our communities, our schools, to take action on climate change. We cannot rest until each and every one of you gets engaged and active.  Our kids are counting on us because their lives and their futures are at stake.
11:15 AM – 12:15 PM, CONCURRENT SESSIONS I (choose one)
A. A Panel Discussion on Free Speech at Harvard
Brad Abruzzi, University Attorney, Office of the General Counsel
Katie O'Dair, Dean of Students, Harvard College
Marcia Sells, Associate Dean and Dean of Students, Harvard Law School
Sarah Wald, Senior Policy Advisor and Chief of Staff, Harvard Kennedy School
Free speech issues on university and college campuses continue to have prominence in the national dialogue, especially following President Trump’s executive order directing federal agencies to link certain funding to how higher education institutions enforce the right to “free inquiry.” Free speech is essential to Harvard and its foundational commitment to the free exchange of ideas; but with it also comes important philosophical and logistical complexities. In this panel discussion, leaders from Harvard College, the Kennedy and Law Schools will share how they think about and address free speech issues at their schools.
B. Cybersecurity, Harvard and You
Christian Hamer, Chief Information Security Officer, Harvard University Information Technology
Harvard is constantly under threat by increasingly sophisticated nation-state, criminal and other cyber actors looking to steal data and disrupt operations. In this session, you’ll learn about the latest information security threats in the wild, hear some anonymized real-world examples of what the University confronts, see a demo of a cyberattack in action, and learn the best ways to keep yourself and your data safe amidst it all. Anyone interested in the subject is welcome to attend.
C. Environmental Health and Safety Research Risks with Field, International and Off-campus Activities
Bill VanSchalkwyk, Managing Director of Environmental Health & Safety, Campus Services
Mary Corrigan, Associate Director of Laboratory Programs, Campus Services
Bree Carlson, Senior Environmental Project Manager, Campus Services
Harvard’s environmental health and safety (EHS) risks extend far beyond the confines of our Massachusetts campuses; and are especially prevalent in the mission-critical field and international research work our researchers undertake throughout the U.S. and globally. But these off-campus research activities bring with them a host of complexities, challenges and dangers that require special knowledge and planning to ensure the safety of those involved. In this session, EHS experts will discuss the areas of most concern with field research, share real-world examples of the types risks experienced by Harvard researchers, and will highlight tools that can help you and your faculty assess, mitigate and manage EHS risks associated with international and other off-campus research activities.
D. Financial Planning in Uncertain Times
Tom Hollister, Vice President for Finance and Chief Financial Officer, Financial Administration 
Jen Dilts, Assistant Vice President, Office of Financial Strategy and Planning, Financial Administration
With the growing possibility of a financial downturn, it is increasingly important for managers to begin planning for an organizational response.  How can we create flexible action plans in response to a variety of possible scenarios, and how can downside preparation in particular be incorporated into our regular planning cadence at the University, School/Unit, and department levels? Harvard University CFO Tom Hollister and the Office of Financial Strategy and Planning will engage the group with lessons learned from the last crisis, frameworks for strategic thinking, and best practices from our cross-industry research.
E. Harvard and the Globalization of Higher Education: Trends and Emerging Challenges
Todd Washburn, Senior Assistant Provost for International Affairs, Office of the Provost
Over the past generation, Harvard has become significantly more international: the number of international students, scholars, and research activities has grown substantially. This change has occurred not as the result of central planning, but as a result of the changing interests of Harvard students and scholars and, more importantly, as a result of the changing nature of academic research. How has the globalization of higher education affected US universities in general, and Harvard in particular? This session examines some of the major global trends that are transforming higher education today.
12:15 PM – 1:15 PM, LUNCH

A. Before and After the Storm: Strategies for Preparedness and Recovery
Brian Mazmanian, Associate Director of Emergency Management, Campus Services
A hurricane is headed towards Harvard. Are you ready? The aftermath of the storm is devastating. How soon can you get back to normal? This interactive session will help you assess and improve your personal and professional readiness and resiliency.
B. FBI Perspectives on Foreign Influence
Kris Grahame, Intelligence Analyst, Federal Bureau of Investigation
The FBI and other federal agencies have increased their attention on foreign entity interactions with US universities, focusing on theft of US intellectual property. Federal regulations intended to address this issue have significant implications for how research is conducted at Harvard and elsewhere. In this session, FBI Intelligence Analyst, Kris Grahame, will describe what the FBI is seeing in terms of foreign influence on research within US higher education, and will describe how researchers and administrators can better protect the intellectual property of the institution.
C. Inclusive Excellence at Harvard
John Silvanus Wilson, Jr., Senior Advisor and Strategist to the President, Harvard University
As stated in the final report of the Presidential Task Force on Inclusion & Belonging, “To gain the benefit of diversity, Harvard must fully integrate all members of the University into academic, professional, and social contexts that support their individual flourishing and activate their potential.” In this session, Dr. Wilson will speak about the University’s continuing efforts to advance a culture of inclusion and belonging. This session will be relevant to all Harvard employees
D. The Opportunities and Risks with Online Learning
Erin Driver-Linn, Dean for Education, Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health
Rebecca Nesson, Associate Dean for Teaching and Learning, Harvard Division of Continuing Education
Ross Pearo, Senior Director, Strategic Alliances and Initiatives, Harvard Business School Online
David Roberts, Dean for External Education and Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School
Online education is growing rapidly at Harvard and beyond. Its opportunities are vast, including the ability to reach a far greater and wider set of learners than traditional classroom-based courses, and to tailor content and course pacing to the needs of each student. But online education also brings with it risks including student retention and course completion issues, revenue alignment and sustainability challenges, brand impact concerns, and a variety of logistical and technological complexities. In this panel discussion, key leaders responsible for several of Harvard’s online learning offerings will share their insights and experiences from this emerging educational arena as well as discuss what Harvard is doing to maintain its place at the forefront of the online learning movement.  
E. Traveling Smart and Staying Safe: Partnering for International Success
Jennifer Puccetti, Executive Director, Department of Global Health & Social Medicine and Center for Global Health Delivery-Dubai, Harvard Medical School
Matt Etre, Associate Director for International Safety and Security, Harvard Global Support Services
Harvard’s international footprint spans every continent and more than 165 countries. A level of personal safety and security risk exists in every international research project, academic program, or office site abroad. As Harvard’s international activities continue to increase, how can we work together to facilitate these engagements while mitigating safety and security risks for our students, faculty, and staff? The difference between success and failure lies in understanding the risks associated with each engagement and implementing strategies to manage those risks. This session will increase your awareness of the personal safety and security risks inherent in international work and travel. We’ll provide you with tools and resources to identify those risks in the context of your destination, the emergency response resources available to you, and the risk management strategies to support Harvard’s international work and travel.
Risky Research and Response to Infectious Disease Outbreaks
Pardis Sabeti, Professor of Immunology and Infectious Diseases, Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health; Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard Faculty of Arts & Sciences; Institute Member, Broad Institute; Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute
When the most widespread Ebola epidemic in history began in West Africa in 2015, Dr. Pardis Sabeti led a team that sequenced virus samples from infected patients, thus enabling the first diagnosis of Ebola in Sierra Leone and Nigeria. These efforts marked the first in-depth use of real-time DNA sequencing in the midst of a deadly pandemic. This is high-risk research. Many of Dr. Sabeti’s collaborators died during the outbreak, but the work they did saved the lives of many. During her closing keynote address, Dr. Sabeti will discuss her work as a computational geneticist, the development of algorithms that detect deadly pathogens, deconstruction of traditional barriers and silos, and the trials of working in high-risk settings to both limit the spread of disease, and to reduce the potential for pandemics. Dr. Sabeti will also discuss what our collective efforts need to look like moving forward if we hope to detect, track and defeat outbreaks sooner, both in the U.S. and abroad.

On Democracy
Thursday, June 27
Porter Square Books, 25 White Street, Cambridge

Martha White & Melissa Sweet
Acclaimed writer and editor Martha White presents On Democracy, collected writings from her grandfather, the beloved author E.B. White, alongside  Melissa Sweet, revered author and illustrator of the new How to Read a Book and Some Author!: The Story of E.B. White.

“I am a member of a party of one, and I live in an age of fear.” These words were written by E. B. White in 1947.

Decades before our current political turmoil, White crafted eloquent yet practical political statements that continue to resonate. “There’s only one kind of press that’s any good—” he proclaimed, “a press free from any taint of the government.” He condemned the trend of defamation, arguing that “in doubtful, doubting days, national morality tends to slip and slide toward a condition in which the test of a man’s honor is his zeal for discovering dishonor in others.” And on the spread of fascism he lamented, “fascism enjoys at the moment an almost perfect climate for growth—a world of fear and hunger.” Anchored by an introduction by Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Jon Meacham, this concise collection of essays, letters, and poems from one of this country’s most eminent literary voices offers much-needed historical context for our current state of the nation—and hope for the future of our society. Speaking to Americans at a time of uncertainty, when democracy itself has come under threat, he reminds us, “As long as there is one upright man, as long as there is one compassionate woman . . . the scene is not desolate.”

E. B. White, the author of such beloved classics as Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and The Trumpet of the Swan, was born in Mount Vernon, New York. He graduated from Cornell University in 1921 and, five or six years later, joined the staff of The New Yorker magazine, then in its infancy. He died on October 1, 1985, and was survived by his son and three grandchildren. Mr. White's essays have appeared in Harper's magazine, and some of his other books are: One Man's Meat, The Second Tree from the Corner, Letters of E. B. White, Essays of E. B. White, and Poems and Sketches of E. B. White. He won countless awards, including the 1971 National Medal for Literature and the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, which commended him for making a "substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children."

During his lifetime, many young readers asked Mr. White if his stories were true. In a letter written to be sent to his fans, he answered, "No, they are imaginary tales . . . But real life is only one kind of life—there is also the life of the imagination."

Martha White is a writer and editor who lives on the coast of Maine. A longtime contributing editor to Yankee Publishing and The Old Farmer's Almanac, she also compiled two weekly columns for United Feature Syndicatefor many years. Her articles, book reviews, short stories, and essays have been published in The New York Times; The Boston Globe; Christian Science Monitor; Early American Life, Country Journal, Down East; Garden Design, Maine Boats Homes and Harbors, and numerous other national magazines and small presses.

In Some Writer!, Caldecott Honor winner Melissa Sweet mixes E.B. White’s personal letters, photos, and family ephemera with her own exquisite artwork to tell the story of this American literary icon. Readers young and old will be fascinated and inspired by the journalist, New Yorker contributor, and children’s book author who loved words his whole life. This authorized tribute, a New York Times bestseller, includes an afterword by Martha White herself. How to Read a Book  is the stunning new picture book from Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexander and Melissa Sweet. This New York Times bestselling duo has teamed up for the first time to bring you How to Read a Book, a poetic and beautiful journey about the experience of reading. Kwame Alexander’s evocative poetry and Melissa Sweet’s lush artwork come together to take readers on a sensory journey between the pages of a book. 

Melissa Sweet has illustrated more than one hundred books. Her work has been in magazines, on greeting cards, and on her living room walls. Melissa has received the Caldecott Honor Medal twice, among many other awards, including the Sibert Medal, and is a New York Timesbestselling author and artist. Melissa lives in Maine.

Bleeding Out:  The Devastating Consequences of Urban Violence—and a Bold New Plan for Peace in the Streets
Friday, June 28
7:00 PM
Harvard Book Store, 1256 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge

Harvard Book Store welcomes THOMAS ABT—senior research fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government—for a discussion of his new book, Bleeding Out: The Devastating Consequences of Urban Violence—and a Bold New Plan for Peace in the Streets. He will be joined in conversation by renowned national leader and expert in gang, youth, and urban violence reduction, REVEREND JEFFREY L. BROWN. 

About Bleeding Out
Urban violence is one of the most divisive and allegedly intractable issues of our time, but in Bleeding Out, Harvard scholar Thomas Abt shows that we actually possess all the tools necessary to stem violence in our cities. Combining the latest social science with firsthand experience as a crime-fighter, Abt demonstrates that we must focus on "hot people," the small groups of men who commit the majority of serious crimes, and on "hot spots," the blocks and corners where violence clusters. Arguing against hopelessness and fearmongering, Abt proposes a relentless focus on violence—not drugs, gangs, or guns. But the goal is not just to save lives. As Abt reveals, because violence acts as the linchpin of urban poverty, curbing such crime can unlock the untapped potential of our nation's most disadvantaged communities.

Solstice Luncheon: A. Antosca, "Transhumanism, Singularity, & Techno-Religion"
Sunday, June 30
1:30 PM to 4:30 PM
India Pavilion Restaurant, 17 Central Square, Cambridge
RSVP at https://www.meetup.com/GreaterBostonHumanists/events/261763938/

Join us for our Summer Solstice Luncheon for this year, our last event before the Fall season. We'll once again meet at the India Pavilion in Central Square Cambridge for a buffet lunch on Sunday June 30 at 1:30 pm. Our guest speaker at about 2:30 will be Albert Antosca, on "Digital Transcendence: Transhumanism, Singularity, and the Rise of Techno-religion."

The topic of transhumanism has become increasingly popular in recent years as advances in technology continue to pose both extraordinary promise and unique challenges. However, transhumanism—the idea that technology should be used to transcend human limitations, including mortality itself—elicits impassioned reactions from academics and the public at large--and some humanists. In this talk, Dr. Albert R. Antosca will discuss the ways transhumanist concepts are beginning to inspire new forms of religious expression and how the theory of the Technological Singularity promises an atheistic version of immortality.

Albert R. Antosca is an interdisciplinary scholar exploring big questions concerning technology, culture, and the human condition. Inspired partly by his years flying as an airline captain, his doctoral work focused on the Philosophy of Technology and the human-technology relationship. Dr. Antosca is currently a Visiting Scholar at Dartmouth College.

One Giant Leap:  The Impossible Mission That Flew Us to the Moon
Monday, July 8
7:00 PM
Harvard Book Store, 1256 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge

Harvard Book Store welcomes acclaimed writer CHARLES FISHMAN—author of The Walmart Effect, Curious Minds, and The Big Thirst—for a discussion of his latest book, One Giant Leap: The Impossible Mission That Flew Us to the Moon.

About One Giant Leap
President John F. Kennedy astonished the world on May 25, 1961, when he announced to Congress that the United States should land a man on the Moon by 1970. No group was more surprised than the scientists and engineers at NASA, who suddenly had less than a decade to invent space travel.

When Kennedy announced that goal, no one knew how to navigate to the Moon. No one knew how to build a rocket big enough to reach the Moon, or how to build a computer small enough (and powerful enough) to fly a spaceship there. No one knew what the surface of the Moon was like, or what astronauts could eat as they flew there. On the day of Kennedy’s historic speech, America had a total of fifteen minutes of spaceflight experience—with just five of those minutes outside the atmosphere. Russian dogs had more time in space than U.S. astronauts. Over the next decade, more than 400,000 scientists, engineers, and factory workers would send 24 astronauts to the Moon. Each hour of space flight would require one million hours of work back on Earth to get America to the Moon on July 20, 1969.
Fifty years later, One Giant Leap is the sweeping, definitive behind-the-scenes account of the furious race to complete one of mankind’s greatest achievements. It’s a story filled with surprises—from the item the astronauts almost forgot to take with them (the American flag), to the extraordinary impact Apollo would have back on Earth, and on the way we live today.

Charles Fishman introduces readers to the men and women who had to solve 10,000 problems before astronauts could reach the Moon. From the research labs of MIT, where the eccentric and legendary pioneer Charles Draper created the tools to fly the Apollo spaceships, to the factories where dozens of women sewed spacesuits, parachutes, and even computer hardware by hand, Fishman captures the exceptional feats of these ordinary Americans. One Giant Leapis the captivating story of men and women charged with changing the world as we knew it—their leaders, their triumphs, their near disasters, all of which led to arguably the greatest success story, and the greatest adventure story, of the twentieth century.

The Impeachers:  The Trial of Andrew Johnson and the Dream of a Just Nation
Tuesday, July 9
7:00 PM
Harvard Book Store, 1256 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge

Harvard Book Store welcomes renowned, award-winning historian Brenda Wineapple—author of Hawthorne: A Life—for a discussion of her latest book, The Impeachers: The Trial of Andrew Johnson and the Dream of a Just Nation.

About The Impeachers
When Abraham Lincoln was assassinated and Vice-President Andrew Johnson became “the Accidental President,” it was a dangerous time in America. Congress was divided over how the Union should be reunited: when and how the secessionist South should regain full status, whether former Confederates should be punished, and when and whether black men should be given the vote. Devastated by war and resorting to violence, many white Southerners hoped to restore a pre–Civil War society, if without slavery, and the pugnacious Andrew Johnson seemed to share their goals. With the unchecked power of executive orders, Johnson ignored Congress, pardoned rebel leaders, promoted white supremacy, opposed civil rights, and called Reconstruction unnecessary. It fell to Congress to stop the American president who acted like a king.

With profound insights and making use of extensive research, Brenda Wineapple dramatically evokes this pivotal period in American history, when the country was rocked by the first-ever impeachment of a sitting American president. And she brings to vivid life the extraordinary characters who brought that impeachment forward: the willful Johnson and his retinue of advocates—including complicated men like Secretary of State William Seward—as well as the equally complicated visionaries committed to justice and equality for all, like Thaddeus Stevens, Charles Sumner, Frederick Douglass, and Ulysses S. Grant. Theirs was a last-ditch, patriotic, and Constitutional effort to render the goals of the Civil War into reality and to make the Union free, fair, and whole.


Hit Hard Book Launch with Pat, Tammy and Zach McLeod
Tuesday, July 9
7:00 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
Harvard Coop, 1400 Mass Avenue, Cambridge
RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/hit-hard-book-launch-with-pat-tammy-and-zach-mcleod-tickets-62953136526

Discussion, Q&A and Signing Hit Hard: One Family's Journey of Letting Go of What Was--and Learning to Live Well with What Is
Life hit Pat and Tammy McLeod hard when their son Zach collapsed on a high school football field—he had sustained a severe brain injury. Two emergency brain surgeries later, Zach began waking up. Slowly the entire family woke up to the reality that life would never again be the same. The fallout of his injury would reshape their marriage, their family, their future and their faith in ways they never saw coming. What would it take for them to navigate the endless fallout of their son’s life-transforming injury? How could they reconcile their grief over the life Zach lost, with gratitude for the life that remained? And how does a couple move forward together in their search for hope, rather than letting indefinable loss drive them apart? Hit Hard is the true story of the McLeods’ journey through ambiguous loss—both having and not having their son. It’s the story of a family who faced unexpected heartbreak, a story that offers us all glimpses of how we can pick up the pieces, redefine expectations, and find hope in the midst of unresolved pain.

"Hugs For the Planet" in support of the Green New Deal -- will take place late June or early July -- depending on when I can raise the money. I may be able to cover a small shortfall myself but, like many people, I struggle to cover my own needs for the most part.

I'm looking at a Saturday or Sunday, 1pm, one hour.

Our idea is to position ourselves at the Park Street T exit on Boston Common and give out free "Hugs for the Planet." The goal is to raise awareness of the climate change crisis and garner support for the Green New Deal -- the only blueprint to date that offers a comprehensive plan that reflects the urgency needed to, literally, save the planet for our kids and grandkids.

There is no party or group affiliation. I am a career journalist/writer/editor/activist of some standing, working independently, to contribute to building a critical mass of support for the Green New Deal.

I plan to hire (probably six) promotional/event models to give out free hugs and hand out leaflets with some basic info, a call to action, and Congressional phone numbers on them.

OUR SECONDARY GOAL IS TO GET SOME MEDIA COVERAGE. (I have worked in the media, as well as in the capacity of Press Officer and Communications Director.) I will also contact the mayor's office.

You can support Hugs for the Planet at https://www.gofundme.com/quothugs-for-the-planetquot-for-the-green-new-deal
