    ONLINE ONLY: Know Feliz - Train Man

    6:00 PM - Wednesday -

    A link to view this program will be available beginning December 2 at 6:00 p.m.

    The beloved tradition of the Train Man at the Library continues...virtually.

    Raised in the Midwest, Michael Lavrich learned early to love trains. His grandfather, a night hostler who tended three steam locomotives, encouraged his curiosity when they spent time together in the train yard. Michael pursued a degree in education and spent time teaching middle school in Georgia, kindergarten on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana before relocating to New Mexico and making a home with his family in house right next to a railroad. His interests in trains came full circle as he and his family started collecting toy trains.

    Michael and his family moved to Bend just before the turn of this century when Bend was a booming metropolis of 35,000 souls. The noise and traffic were near unbearable after the small towns he'd lived in, but he found refuge in drives to the mountains and walks in Sunriver. As a lover of knowledge and books it didn't take long for Michael to discover the Sunriver Library, where he enjoyed story times with his daughter and son. Not soon after, Michael offered to set up a train display at the Library for Christmas and a tradition was born. Each year Michael spends days setting up his trains at the Downtown Bend Library for the community to enjoy.

    ONLINE ONLY: Writers Writing - When the Muse Stands You Up

    1:30 PM - Saturday - * Registration Required

    This is a live, interactive workshop. Registered participants will receive a Zoom link the day prior. Registration closes at that time.

    A generative writing workshop focusing on the raw materials of short story.

    In this workshop, we'll use lists, tricks, and experiments with structure, shapes, and points of view to create the raw materials of a short story. We will embrace a sense of play, worrying less about what is "good" writing and more about doing the work of putting words on the page, and we will discuss various ways to do that work when inspiration isn't quite sparking.

    Because we are creating, not critiquing, no one will be giving or receiving feedback on their writing. Participants will emerge with new writing, as well as tools and tricks as they build their own practice.

    Beginners, people who don’t call themselves writers, storytellers and artists of all forms, welcome.

    KIRIN M. KHAN is a Pukhtuna from Albuquerque, New Mexico, who writes about trauma, the body, sports, violence, immigrants, and queerness among other stuff. She learned to write via VONA/Voices, Las Dos Brujas, Kearny Street Workshop and the Tin House Writers Workshop. She has received fellowships from PEN America's Emerging Voices, San Francisco Writers Grotto, an AWP Writer to Writer Mentee, and San Jose State University's Steinbeck Fellowship, and residencies from the Vermont Studio Center and Tin House.

    ONLINE ONLY: Writers Reading - The Green Revolution in Nepal

    7:00 PM - Tuesday -

    This is a live event. Join here https://zoom.us/j/92485560804?pwd=cXExbUFPbkRZNUZCSE1KSE1HbG9QZz09 or click "Join Program" above.

    Hear from local author Jon Stewart on his journeys through Nepal.

    In 1969 when over half a million US troops were fighting a losing war in Vietnam, a few dozen American volunteers were winning a major victory over famine in South Asia. Two Years Behind the Plow, written by local author Jonathan Stewart, describes one Peace Corps volunteer's efforts to bring the Green Revolution to the jungled hills of Nepal.

    This book showcases a medieval kingdom half a century ago at the cusp of a dramatic transformation in its economy. Since then, improved agricultural practices linked to rural education has dramatically transformed a rich mix of tribal cultures that share a mountainous nation that stretches from the Gangetic plain to Mt Everest. Thanks to the all but forgotten efforts of these American Peace Corps volunteers, famine that used to kill millions has been temporarily erased from the subcontinent and the life expectancy of the average Nepali has doubled.

    Between 1969 and 1971 Jonathan Stewart helped bring the Green Revolution to Nepal. He spent two years living in a small Nepali village in remote jungle valley at the foot of the Himalayas. With mixed success, he demonstrated the advantages of using hybrid seed and chemicals to increase the productivity of local rice, maize and wheat crops.

    The author obtained degrees in history and journalism from the University of Oregon and worked as a reporter for the Tuscola Journal in Central Illinois. He also spent over three decades working for the US Forest Service. During that time, he worked as smokejumper, volunteer coordinator, fire management officer, fire crew supervisor, and six years as the as the executive director of the Northwest Service Academy, the nation’s first conservation-oriented AmeriCorps program.

    Jonathan Stewart is an avid long-distance hiker, having trekked the length of the Pacific Crest Trail, the Continental Divide Trail and the Hayduke Trail and written a book about each. He has also hiked the Pacific NW Trail, the Great Divide Trail, the Long Trail, the Arizona Trail, the Colorado Trail, the Grand Enchantment Trail., the Wonderland Trail and many other trails worldwide. He has repeatedly volunteered as a crew leader for Conservation International, leading trips to Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia, and currently manages his family’s tree farm in NW Oregon. It is the first small woodland in the world to put under California’s cap and trade initiative to fight global warming. *zm*

    A link to view this program will be available beginning Wednesday, December 16th at 4:00 p.m.

    Kick back and enjoy old and new songs, plus illustrations from his upcoming book.

    Dennis McGregor has been writing songs for most of his life. Before evolving into a commercial artist he was a full-time touring musician. These days Dennis still plays occasional gigs with his group, The Spoilers. He also teaches songwriting at The Americana Song Academy, Sisters Folk Festival’s Nationally recognized song camp. Dennis McGregor's songs are often wryly twisted, making them pretty much impossible to call normal. That's what people like most about them. The same could be said about his poster illustrations, which have engaged many a viewer over the years.

    Dennis is currently working on his upcoming book "How You Got My Name", a sequel to his popular children’s book, You Stole My Name, and a CD of new songs. For more information, visit https://www.dennismcgregor.com/

    ONLINE ONLY: Know Feliz - Who Stole Christmas? The Pagan Origins of the Holiday

    6:00 PM - Thursday -

    This is a live event. Join the meeting here: https://zoom.us/j/95211474524?pwd=eDhsZ1BsUmRVK2l3MkxaNFZnY2RPUT09
    Passcode: 674710

    Explore the Pagan origins of holiday traditions and stories.

    Because Jesus of Nazareth is not the only divine figure whose birthday is celebrated at the winter solstice, we are frequently told that the early Christians “stole” the celebration from various Pagan cultures. Two motives are frequently given: that early Christians used existing celebrations to cloak their own, or that Christians co-opted solstice celebrations such as the Roman Saturnalia and bent them to their own theological uses. Beyond that, some have tried to reinterpret common seasonal symbols, claiming, for example, that Santa Claus flying through the sky is a folk memory of shamans who “flew” aided by red and white Amanita muscaria mushrooms. Within Christianity, Christmas customs have varied widely, from multi-day celebrations during parts of the Middle Ages and Early Modern periods, to the New England Puritans’ complete banning of the holiday, following bans enforced at different times in Scotland and England.

    Put together historically inaccurate narratives, misunderstandings of what ancient Pagans did at the winter solstice, and attempts by contemporary Pagans to reclaim the holiday, and we have quite a bit of sorting-out to do. Yet at the same time, Christmas-Yule-Winter Solstice retains its power in the Northern Hemisphere as a time of celebration that can bring people together, regardless of their religious paths.

    Chas S. Clifton holds degrees from Reed College and the University of Colorado. After spending the 1980s as a journalist, he taught at Colorado State University-Pueblo until 2008. Since then he has concentrated on academic writing and editing. He was formerly co-chair of the Contemporary Pagan Studies Group within the American Academy of Religion and edits The Pomegranate: The International Journal of Pagan Studies, a peer-reviewed journal from Equinox Publishing in the UK.

    ONLINE ONLY: Know Feliz - Rhodd Caldwell Reads A Child's Christmas in Wales

    3:00 PM - Sunday -

    A link to view this program will be available beginning Sunday, December 20 at 3:00 p.m.Actor Rhodd F. Caldwell, with tech support from Justin Gleeson, Technical Director and Facility Manager, Newport Performing Arts Center, performs this classic holiday prose work by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas.

    First recorded by Thomas in 1952, A Child's Christmas in Wales is an anecdotal reminiscence of Christmas from the viewpoint of a young boy, portraying a nostalgic and simpler time.

    In December 2018, Rhodd produced and directed an unusual collaboration with the Newport Symphony Orchestra at the Performing Arts Center (PAC) and Porthole Players. They performed a fully staged production of Giancarlo Menotti’s holiday opera Amahl and the Night Visitors. This was the first live opera production at the PAC, and Rhodd was privileged to open performances with a reading of Dylan Thomas’ classic tale.

    That reading was accompanied by screened lavish illustrations of the work, created by multiple Caldecott medal winner Trina Schart Hyman for a special edition printed in 1985. Permission has been granted to include those illustrations with this performance.

    Rhodd F. Caldwell has had an extensive and award-winning association with regional theatres for nearly half a century as a producer, director, conductor, actor, and singer with widely divergent roles in theatre, musical theatre and opera. Rhodd is very pleased to have been invited to participate in the Deschutes library winter holiday series. With the rise of COVID-19 - and the long-term shuttering of theatres all over the world - he is extremely grateful for all those organizations, producers, directors and performers who have stepped up to the plate and are learning to adapt the arts to virtual media. “It seems that no matter the circumstances, the arts will continue to thrive. It’s a cliché, but it’s true: the show must go on!” He wishes for all listeners a meaningful - and safe - holiday season. *oo*
