    3. Keep an open mind - Listen carefully, and try hard to understand the views of others.
    4. Keep the discussion on track - Stick to the topic and questions; try not to ramble.
    5. It is okay to disagree, but don’t be disagreeable - Respond to others with respect and understanding.
    6. Have fun! *These resources were chosen to stimulate discussion, and represent the view of the author and/or publisher.

    Shireen Amini is a singer-songwriter based in Bend, Oregon who believes in music as medicine. In addition to her background in ethnomusicology, Afro-Latin percussion, drum circle facilitation, and sound healing, Shireen has been the front-woman for over 7 years of the Latin dance rock band ¡Chiringa! and has spent the last two years returning to her solo singer-songwriter roots, cultivating a rich repertoire of hip, conscious-themed, singalong-style songs often performed in a live looping format. This groove-based world-soul-pop energizes the stories she tells boldly, playfully, and passionately of her personal healing journey and visions for a better world. Her Conscious Acoustic Soul with World Grooves is a musical blend that invites imagining Gloria Estefan meets Nahko & Medicine for the People.

    ONLINE ONLY East Bend: The Library Book Club

    12:00 PM - Tuesday -

    Discuss "Aloha Rodeo" by David Wolman and Julian Smith online using Zoom. Available as an ebook and digital audiobook on both Hoopla and Overdrive.

    Join us online by copy and pasting the following link:
    https://zoom.us/j/97571676103

    About the Book:
    The image of the American cowboy brings to mind locations such as Texas, Oklahoma, and Wyoming, but that list doesn't generally include Hawaii. Wolman and Smith here set the record straight. The book's first part provides a history of Hawaiian cowboys (paniolo), tracing it back to the introduction of cattle to the islands in the late 1700s that, by the mid-1800s, had given birth to a thriving cattle ranching culture. Parallel to this development, the authors describe the changing reputation of Cheyenne, WY, from outlaw outpost to rodeo capital, attracting fans from across the country to its annual Frontier Days. Later chapters continue these two narratives, following the increasing popularity of rodeo events in Hawaii and across the American West. The two worlds gradually come together, culminating with the 1908 Cheyenne Frontier Days debut and triumph of three legendary paniolo: Ikua Purdy, Jack Low, and Archie Ka'au'a.

    ONLINE ONLY: Community Conversations - Speaking of Race

    5:00 PM - Tuesday - * Registration Required

    How do we talk to each other about race? This conversation will be held via Zoom. Space is limited and registration is required. Zoom invites will be sent out the day prior to the event.

    How can we understand people's lived experiences of systemic racism or privilege? Join us as we seek to understand one another and contemplate our experiences of race in America. Our first virtual Community Conversation (to be held over Zoom) will include discussion among participants, as well as insights from two community members.

    Every quarter we offer a Community Conversation event for community members of all backgrounds to share stories and discuss issues that matter. There's an open feeling of trust and a bubbling up of ideas that break down the silos that are dividing our communities across the country.

    The goal of Community Conversations is to expand our sense of neighborhood - across all economic, political, cultural, and racial boundaries. We believe in the power of connections and friendships to bridge any divides. All of our conversations stem from a strong commitment to curiosity, compassion, and community.

    ONLINE ONLY Sisters: The Library Book Club

    5:30 PM - Wednesday -

    Discussing The Mountains Sing by Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai online via zoom.

    Nguyễn's lyrical, sweeping debut novel (after the poetry collection The Secret of Hoa Sen) chronicles the Tran family through a century of war and renewal. As middle-aged writer Hýõng revisits her native Hanoi in 2012, she reflects on the lessons shared by her late grandmother Diệu Lan ("The challenges faced by Vietnamese people throughout history are as tall as the tallest mountains. If you stand too close, you won't be able to see their peaks") and chronicles their journey of survival during the Vietnam War. Hýõng was 12 when bombs encroached on Hanoi, where she lived with Diệu Lan after her mother, Ngọc, a physician, left to search for her father, a soldier in the NVA. After an evacuation to the mountains, Diệu Lan "opened the door of her childhood" to Huoung with stories of being raised by a wealthy family to pursue an education and resist old customs such as blackening her teeth. Diệu Lan also describes the harrowing truth of the Việt Minh Land Reform, during which her family's land was seized in the spirit of resource distribution, encouraging her to question what she's been taught in schools.

    ONLINE ONLY: Lipbone Redding Musical Performance

    2:00 PM - Thursday -

    A link to view this program online will be available beginning Thursday, July 23rd at 2:00 p.m.

    Lipbone Redding shares his voice-strumentalist talents.

    We want to hear from you. After viewing this program, please take a minute to complete the survey at https://conta.cc/2WjLWoT

    Hailing from North Carolina, Lipbone Redding is an award-winning vocalist, guitar player, voice-strumentalist, storyteller, songwriter, author, teacher and traveler. He is best known for his one-man orchestra show; simultaneously playing, singing and making the instrument sounds with his mouth and without the use of a loop pedal.

    Lipbone incorporates American Roots, Blues and Jazz with world influences including Indian, Middle Eastern, African and Latin styles. An uncanny vocal range, a nylon string guitar, a wooden spoon duct-taped to his foot and a lifetime of stories are all he needs to get the party started. His natural human sounds of throat singing, bass and beat-boxing, and his astonishingly realistic lip-tromboning are a must-experience.

    Theaters, festivals, house concerts and private parties make up the bulk of Lipbone’s schedule of 200 performances per year. Lipbone collaborates regularly and performs often as a special guest.
    In addition to a thriving commercial music career, Lipbone has been an active member of the yoga community, since 2003, performing for classes and offering concerts at healing arts centers around the world. In 2017 he began offering his OmPrana workshop, a 90 minute immersive experience focused on breath, music and meditation.

    Explore a few less-traveled trails in Southern and Eastern Oregon with Portland author Matthew Wastradowski.

    We want to hear from you. After viewing this program, please take a minute to complete the survey at https://conta.cc/2WjLWoT

    Portland author Matt Wastradowski will talk about staying safe outdoors, share a few less-traveled trails in southern and eastern Oregon, and detail the surprising history behind some of our favorite outdoor spaces. He'll also offer tips for responsible recreation and planning hikes away from the region's biggest crowds this summer.

    Matt Wastradowski is a travel and outdoors writer based in Portland, Oregon. Whether on assignment or just for fun, chances are good he’s doing something that deepens his passion and enthusiasm for the Beaver State and the broader Pacific Northwest. In recent years, he’s visited more than 250 breweries and cideries, hiked all four corners of Oregon (multiple times over!), and driven roughly 30,000 miles around the region. He’s camped in tents, yurts, and fire lookouts. And he’s spent countless hours exploring seemingly every backcountry road this state has to offer, often with no bars on his iPhone.

    Matt has written for a variety of publications, including Bend Magazine, Outside, REI’s Co-op Blog, Willamette Week, and Northwest Travel & Life. His recent book is "Moon Pacific Northwest Hiking" covering hikes in Washington and Oregon. *oo*

    Oregon Strawberry season is here! Strawberry freezer jam is a quick and easy way to enjoy summer’s wonderful fruit year round. All you need is just a few basic tools, ripe summer fruit, pectin and sugar. This video will show you how to turn your Farmer’s Market finds or your backyard bounty, into a fresh tasting jam that is terrific on toast, as a PB&J, or over ice cream. Once you taste this homemade treat you will never go back to store bought.

    Ahja King is an educator, entrepreneur, gardener, reader, wife and mother of three amazing women. Growing up near the Salinas Valley in California, my mom taught me how to grow, gleen, harvest and preserve as much food as we could. Freezer jams and jellies were my favorite to make and eat. I am going to show you how you can take the rich bounty that is Oregon and make delicious treats for your family and friends. Freezer jam is a way to preserve fruit that doesn’t require high heat and long cooking times so it’s a perfect cooking project to enjoy with kids. *oo*

    Before working in journalism Katie ran a wedding and event planning company for 10 years. She became a regular guest on a morning news show, talking about wedding trends and planning at which point she went back to school to study broadcast journalism. Not long after she started at KTVZ, Katie began training under Chief Meteorologist Bob Shaw to be a weather anchor fill-in. It didn't take long for her to realize that she loved the weather. In the fall of 2019, Katie returned to school, in the online program at Mississippi State University. She is scheduled to graduate in 2022 with a BS in Operation and Broadcast Meteorology.

    Katie was born in Oregon. She and her husband have lived all over the world but returned to the Pacific Northwest and settled in Bend where they are raising two sons. In the summer, you can find Katie and her family kayaking, camping and gardening. In the winter, they love to hit the slopes, and you will often find her with a latte and a sewing machine or knitting needles in hand.

    We want to hear from you. After viewing this program, please take a minute to complete the survey at https://conta.cc/2WjLWoT

    Cheryl Wright has been a beekeeper for "only" four years. She is currently the president of the Portland Urban Beekeepers bee club, and is currently approaching her 2nd year at the Master level of the Oregon Master Beekeeping program. She started her beekeeping adventures by reading Dewey Caron’s book, Honey Bee Biology and Beekeeping (2013) twice over, and attending monthly Portland Urban Beekeeping meetings. The more she learned about beekeeping the less sure she was that this was a viable hobby. To learn more, she signed up for the Oregon Master Beekeeping (OMB) Program. After a year of serious exploration and study, she purchased her equipment and three small 5-frame beehives, called "nucs". Additionally, she was awarded a box of bees through a PUB scholarship for the OMB program. She has made progress, and maintains between two to six hives on her back deck.

    In real life, to support her bee addiction, she works as a nurse practitioner for United Health Group performing in-home health risk assessments for Medicare recipients. *oo*

    ONLINE ONLY: The Library Book Club at Sunriver

    10:00 AM - Wednesday -

    Discuss "Places and Names: On War, Revolution, and Returning" by Elliot Ackerman via Zoom. Click the link below, or join at https://zoom.us/j/272320347 or with Meeting ID 272 320 347.

    From the publisher, "From a decorated Marine war veteran and National Book Award Finalist, an astonishing reckoning with the nature of combat and the human cost of the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. "War hath determined us ..." - John Milton, Paradise Lost Toward the beginning of Places and Names, Elliot Ackerman sits in a refugee camp in southern Turkey, across the table from a man named Abu Hassar, who fought for Al Qaeda in Iraq, and whose connections to the Islamic State are murky. At first, Ackerman pretends to have been a journalist during the Iraq War, but after establishes a rapport with Abu Hassar, he takes a risk by revealing to him that in fact he was a Marine special operation officer. Ackerman then draws the shape of the Euphrates River on a large piece of paper, and his one-time adversary quickly joins him in the game of filling in the map with the names and dates of where they saw fighting during the war. They had shadowed each other for some time, it turned out, a realization that brought them to a strange kind of intimacy. The rest of Elliot Ackerman's extraordinary memoir is in a way an answer to the question of why he came to that refugee camp and what he hoped to find there."

    Discuss Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in A Silicon Valley Startup by John Carreyrou online via Zoom.
    Books available on Libby or pick-up at Sisters Library.

    In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood tests significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: the technology didn't work. For years, Holmes had been misleading investors, FDA officials, and her own employees. When the author, working at The Wall Street Journal, got a tip from a former Theranos employee and started asking questions, both the author and the newspaper were threatened with lawsuits. Undaunted, the paper ran the first of dozens of Theranos articles in late 2015. By early 2017, the company's value was zero and Holmes faced potential legal action from the government and her investors. The biggest corporate fraud since Enron is a cautionary tale set amid the bold promises and gold-rush frenzy of Silicon Valley
