    This program will be available Tuesdays and Thursdays via YouTube at https://bit.ly/2Yaurca

    Join community librarians for songs, rhymes, stories and fun!

    Experts agree that talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with your young child will prepare them for learning how to read, and will teach them the six skills needed to read. A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words, has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop with story time!

    Singer Yolanda Alicia shares songs of heritage. This is a bilingual program.

    As a daughter of Mexican immigrants, Yolanda has a passion for sharing the culture, traditions and music of Mexico. It has been her life-long work as a bilingual teacher, volunteer and, now, a doting abuela (grandmother). Most recently she was honored to perform with local musicians, Miguel de Alonso and Billy Mickleson, during the past three Dia de los Muertos celebrations at the Downtown Bend Library. Yolanda is also passionate about singing as a member of the international organization, Threshold Choir (thresholdchoir.org). These wonderful choirs sing for those for whom music can be a healing balm. She has recently established a local chapter in Bend. The Heart of Oregon Threshold Singers are now volunteers for Partners In Care.

    Yolanda will sing songs featured on her CD, ¿Dónde Andarás?, which she created as a tribute to her parents and the music they loved. It features beautiful songs from Mexico, Venezuela, Cuba and Peru, as well as a few Bossa pieces from Brazil. (yolandaalicia.com)

    Yolanda's music is available for sale through iTunes, Amazon and now through the Central Oregon Latino Community Association. Purchase of her CDs through the LCA will support their COVID -19 Relief Fund. For more information or to contribute by purchasing a CD, contact Cynthia Jurgensen at the Latino Community Association (cynthia@latca.org)

    Un enlace para ver este programa estará disponible a partir del miércoles 30 de septiembre a las 6:00 p.m.

    La cantante Yolanda Alicia comparte canciones de herencia.

    Como hija de inmigrantes mexicanos, Yolanda siente pasión por compartir la cultura, las tradiciones y la música de México. Ha sido su trabajo de toda la vida como maestra bilingüe, voluntaria y, ahora, abuela cariñosa. Más recientemente, tuvo el honor de actuar con los músicos locales, Miguel de Alonso y Billy Mickleson, durante las últimas tres celebraciones del Día de los Muertos en Deschutes Public Library. Yolanda también está apasionada del canto como miembro de la organización internacional, Threshold Choir (thresholdchoir.org). Estos maravillosos coros cantan para aquellos quienes la música puede ser un remedio curativo. Recientemente ha establecido un capítulo local en Bend. The Heart of Oregon Threshold Singers ahora son voluntarios de Partners In Care.

    Yolanda canta canciones incluidas en su CD, ¿Dónde Andarás?, que creó como homenaje a sus padres y la música que amaban. Cuenta con hermosas canciones de México, Venezuela, Cuba y Perú, así como algunas canciones Bossa de Brasil. (yolandaalicia.com)

    La música de Yolanda está disponible para la venta a través de su sitio web o a través de la Asociación de la Comunidad Latina (cynthia@latca.org). La compra de sus CD apoyará a los inmigrantes en la comunidad de Central Oregon que enfrentan los tremendos desafíos de hoy.

    Go on a lively tour of historical traditions of magic with University of Oregon Professor and medievalist, Martha Bayless, Ph.D.

    This lively presentation will cover historical traditions of magic, including some that may be familiar from Harry Potter and some that are still with us in modern life. Among these is the surprising history of Hallowe’en— almost certainly not what you’ve heard in the media! — as well as answers to questions like why cats and not dogs were supposed to conspire with witches, why shoes are associated with weddings, and why we throw coins in fountains.

    Martha Bayless is a medievalist who specializes in the popular culture of the Middle Ages. She has a PhD from Cambridge University and is Professor of English and Director of Folklore and Public Culture at the University of Oregon.

    Discuss "Calypso" by David Sedaris. Click the link above or join at https://zoom.us/j/157999301 or with Meeting ID 157 999 301

    Physical copies are available first-come first-serve at the Downtown Bend Customer Service Desk. Additional formats can be placed on hold: https://dpl.bibliocommons.com/item/show/1700809094

    When he buys a beach house on the Carolina coast, David Sedaris envisions long, relaxing vacations spent playing board games and lounging in the sun with those he loves most. And life at the Sea Section, as he names the vacation home, is exactly as idyllic as he imagined, except for one tiny, vexing realization: it's impossible to take a vacation from yourself. Sedaris sets his powers of observation toward middle age and mortality, that vertiginous moment when your own body betrays you and you realize that the story of your life is made up of more past than future.

    Explore mermaids past and present.

    Mythic mermaids have preoccupied visual art and literature for millennia in many cultural contexts but when, in the 19th century, they took physical form in operas certain problems about their form and locomotion needed to be solved so they could be embodied. Stage designers settled on a special "look" which still preoccupies our conception of mermaids in the 21st century. Now, the burgeoning industry of “mermaiding” has countless amateur practitioners. Among professional mermaids, entrepreneurialism in the gig economy utilizes the recognizability of this form and has developed set of skills that goes along with the “look” to constitute enactment of the thoroughly modern mermaid.

    Tracy C. Davis is Barber Professor of Performing Arts at Northwestern University and a specialist in theatre history and historiography.

    Celebrate the actors and amazing behind the scene artists who worked on Nicholas Meyer's Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan with this multimedia virtual presentation. More than 100 rare, and many "never-before-seen," newly discovered photographs paint the incredible picture of a company of actors and artists whose talents combined to create one of science fiction's most critically acclaimed films. In addition to the photographs, the presentation will share trivia and little known facts about the making of the film how it was made despite limitations of budget, time, and technology. A special thank you to writer/director Nicholas Meyer for his permission to share these photographs and the University of Iowa Library

    John and Maria Jose Tenuto have been professors of sociology for 23 years at the College of Lake County in Grayslake, Illinois. John was named the 2020 United States Central Region Faculty of the Year by the Association of Community College Trustees and has been nominated more than 20 times for Outstanding Faculty of the Year at the College of Lake County, winning the award 4 times. Maria Jose was honored as the 2019 State of Illinois Adjunct Faculty of the Year by the Illinois Community College Trustees Association and was named the 2019 Outstanding Adjunct Faculty of the Year at the College of Lake County.

    The couple appears in episodes of the Netflix TV series The Toys that Made Us and were featured subjects of the Decades Network documentary Star Wars: Through the Decades. The Tenuto’s research of Star Trek and Star Wars fans and history has been featured on WGN News, CBS News, BBC Radio, and Canada’s Global News Radio, and in the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun Times, SFX, USA Today, and WIRED Magazine. They have contributed to the Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan Expanded Music Soundtrack by James Horner.

    The couple have presented their research at the Disney/Lucasfilm Star Wars Celebration, The Official Star Trek Convention, The Saint Louis Science Center, and were invited by the towns of Vulcan, Alberta, Canada, and Riverside, Iowa, to speak about the history and making of Star Trek. John and Maria Jose have been married 21 years and have an 18 year old son named Nicholas Jose. *zm*

    Explore one of the archetypal plot devices in science fiction and fantasy: the Hero's Journey.

    Some of the greatest science fiction and fantasy stories encapsulate the Hero's Journey: The Matrix, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings. But what makes a Hero? What's the point of all that struggling...and why can't we stop watching? COCC and OSU Cascades writing instructor and local author Mike Cooper leads us on an exploration into Joseph Campbell's "Monomyth," or "The Hero's Journey."

    Hear examples of The Hero's Journey, learn about different kinds of heroes, mythic elements and archetypes, and discover how the monomyth plot template can inform one's own writing.

    Mike Cooper is a graduate of the OSU-Cascades MFA Writing Program and has led several writing workshops for Deschutes Public Library, Caldera Arts, OSU Cascades, and The Workhouse in Bend. *zm*

    Walidah Imarisha explores Octavia E. Butler and the connection between visionary fiction and social justice movements.

    Writer and educator Walidah Imarisha will explore the idea of "visionary fiction," fantastical art that aids in imagining and building new just futures. She will do so engaging with the work of Octavia E. Butler, renowned Black feminist science fiction writer and public intellectual. Connecting science fiction to social change, Imarisha will show the necessity of imagination to change the world.

    This program is made possible with support from Oregon Humanities, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Oregon Cultural Trust.

    A historian at heart, reporter by (w)right, rebel by reason, Walidah Imarisha is an educator, writer, public scholar and spoken word artist. She edited two anthologies, Octavia's Brood: Science Fiction Stories From Social Justice Movements and Another World is Possible. Imarisha’s nonfiction book Angels with Dirty Faces: Three Stories of Crime, Prison, and Redemption won a 2017 Oregon Book Award. She is also the author of the poetry collection Scars/Stars, and in 2015, she received a Tiptree Fellowship for her science fiction writing.

    Imarisha has taught in Stanford University’s Program of Writing and Rhetoric, Pacific Northwest College of the Art's Master in Fine Arts in Creative Writing and Master in Critical Studies Program, Portland State University's Black Studies Department, and Oregon State University's Women Gender Sexuality Studies Department.

    For six years, she presented statewide as a public scholar with Oregon Humanities' Conversation Project on topics such as Oregon Black history, alternatives to incarceration, and the history of hip hop. She was one of the founders and first editor of the political hip hop magazine AWOL.

    She has toured the country several times performing, lecturing and challenging, and has shared the stage with folks as different as Angela Davis, Cornel West, Amiri Baraka, Nikki Giovanni, Kenny Muhammad of the Roots, Chuck D, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Robin D.G. Kelley, Umar bin Hassan from The Last Poets, Boots Riley, Saul Williams, Ani DiFranco, John Irving, dead prez, Rebecca Solnit, and Yuri Kochiyama.
