    Sunriver: Crowning Achievements of the Soviet Space Program

    12:00 PM - Friday - Meeting Room

    First satellite, first dog, first man in space--hear how.

    Over the course of four years, from 1957 to 1961, the launches of Sputnik-1, the dog Laika, and astronaut Yuri Gagarin (respectively the first artificial satellite, the first animal in the Earth's orbit, and the first human in space) astounded the world and came to represent the crowning achievements of the Soviet space program. How did the Soviets get there? In this talk, Cassio de Oliveira will tell the story of how space exploration became a central concern of the Soviet regime. The narrative begins with the influence of rocket scientist (and science fiction author) Konstantin Tsiolkovsky on Soviet scientists since before World War II, and continues through the formation of the Soviet military complex after the war. We will find out more about the secret "Star City" of Baikonur in the Kazakh Steppe, and about Gagarin's transformation into a pop figure after his famous flight.Cassio de Oliveira is an Assistant Professor of Russian in the Department of World Languages and Literatures at Portland State University, where he teaches courses on Russian language and culture and on 20th-century European history and culture. Cassio’s research interests include Soviet literature from the 1920s and 1930s, Russian film, and translation studies. He is currently working on a book manuscript entitled Writing Rogues: Collective and Individual Identity-Formation in the Soviet Picaresque, 1921-1938. A native of Brazil, Cassio earned his doctorate at Yale University and has an undergraduate degree from Bard College, in New York State, where he first started studying Russian. On his first semester there, he picked a seminar on Russian literature in translation on a whim. He enrolled in a Russian language course the next semester, and, before you could finish saying Zdravstvuite, he had made the decision to major in Russian.

    A Novel Idea Author Robert Kurson at Bend High School

    4:00 PM - Sunday - Bend High School

    "Rocket Men: The Daring Odyssey of Apollo 8 and the Astronauts Who Made Man's First Journey to the Moon" author reads at the final Novel Idea 2019 event.

    Tickets are free but required and are available starting April 6th at www.dplfoundation.org and at all branch libraries.

    Rocket Men shares the inside story of the dangerous Apollo 8 mission. In early 1968, the Apollo program was on shaky footing. President Kennedy’s end-of-decade deadline to put a man on the Moon was in jeopardy, and the Soviets were threatening to pull ahead in the space race. By August 1968, with its back against the wall, NASA decided to scrap its usual methodical approach and shoot for the heavens. With just four months to prepare, the agency would send the first humans in history to the Moon. In a year of historic violence and discord - the Tet offensive, the assassinations of MLK and RFK, the Chicago DNC riots - the Apollo 8 mission was the boldest test of what America could do. With a focus on astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders, and their wives and children, Rocket Men is a vivid account of the epic danger involved, and the bravery it took to leave Earth for the first time. *ani*

    Downtown Bend: Community Conversations - Our Growing Community

    5:30 PM - Wednesday - Brooks Room * Registration Required

    Gather to explore the benefits, hopes, concerns and challenges of growth in Bend.

    Community Conversations invites you to bring your voice to the table for our facilitated conversation on our experiences with growth in Bend. Supper included.

    Bend is growing. With growth comes both challenge and benefit. From housing and traffic to cultural opportunities and a more diverse community, growth is a topic worth exploring. During the conversation we will explore the expectations and realities of our growing community. Our purpose will be to learn from the variety of perspectives we hold on this issue, while practicing listening to understand other points of view. Through sharing, listening, accepting our discomfort, and exploring together, we hope to build our wisdom and stronger community connections.

    Community Conversations believes that conversations matter. Every quarter Community Conversations hosts a supper event for community members of all backgrounds to share stories and discuss issues that matter. These events foster trust and the generation of ideas that break down the silos that are dividing communities across the country. When we talk, we feel more invested. And when we feel more invested, we're more likely to get involved. All of our supper conversations stem from a strong commitment to curiosity, compassion, and community.

    Downtown Bend: Community Questions

    6:00 PM - Monday - Brooks Room

    We live in times of great change.

    How can we move forward with greater understanding of our differences, and our sameness?

    We believe timely, open ended questions create a space for us to do just that.

    Carol Delmonico and Casey Davis have authored and designed an interactive journal “Stoke Your Woke” that supports us to share perspectives, listen, reflect, and learn from one another.

    During these 1.5 hour events you will explore questions through thought provoking prompts, quotes, and images. You will connect with others through writing, listening, and sharing. The space created will allow for everyone's diverse perspectives to be heard with hospitality and equity.

    We'll delve into questions like:
    How could you hold your own truth and listen openly to someone who has a different truth?
    How do you hold both “me and mine” and “we and ours” when a personal decision affects the wellbeing of others?
    What is needed for our most vulnerable populations?

    Here’s what past participants have said:

    "This is the kind of thing our society desperately needs." - Tara Breitenbucher

    "I felt a sense of hope and community, and learned some new things about myself in a very gentle way" - Vicki Avila

    "Appreciation for this process. What a huge difference it makes to hear each other. It Stokes Our Woke!" - Sarah Mason

    This is an ongoing series, meeting once a month on Monday evenings. You are welcome to come to more than one event but it’s not required.

    For more information about Stoke Your Woke go to stokeyourwoke.com

    Downtown Bend: The UP North Loop - 2,600 Miles Through The Inland Northwest

    6:00 PM - Tuesday - Brooks Room

    Hear about the origins and inspiration for the UP North Loop and what it takes to walk 2,600 miles in six months.

    *Sign language interpreting will be provided at this program.

    Not since Lewis and Clark have a pair of adventurers had so profound an experience of the vast lands of the American Northwest, and its unique geology, history, and people.

    On May 14th, 2018, “UltraPedestrian” Ras Vaughan and Kathy “OBAL Unbranded” Vaughan, aka Team UltraPedestrian, set out hiking south on the Idaho Centennial Trail from the small town of Hammett, Idaho. At 4:22:00 pm on Monday, November 5th, after covering more than 2,600 miles on foot over the course of 174 days they returned to their starting point to complete the first ever UP North Loop. Their route linked together parts of the Idaho Centennial Trail, Oregon Desert Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and Pacific Northwest Trail. The epic journey took them across the breadth and width of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.

    In this talk Ras & Kathy share the origins of and inspiration for the UP North Loop; the unique physical, mental, and logistical challenges it poses; the thrill of confronting nearly six straight months of doubts, question marks, and uncertainty; and the beautiful brutality of seeing your plans crumble before your very eyes.

    Join Ras & Kathy for an evening of laughter, information and inspiration.

    RESCHEDULED East Bend: History Pub Encore - History & Climate Change

    12:00 PM - Wednesday - Meeting Room

    Dr. Sean Munger discusses the history of climate change in the Pacific Northwest.

    How was climate change discovered? Who discovered it, when, and under what circumstances? The history of global warming goes back farther than you might think, and it involves people you might not have expected to find on the front lines of climate change—many of them connected to the Northwest. From Lewis and Clark squinting at antique thermometers to UW scientists drilling holes in Arctic ice, the Northwest and its people have been a crucial part of the story of climate change.

    Dr. Sean Munger is a historian, attorney and consultant specializing in the intersection of law and climate change. After practicing law in the Portland, Oregon area for many years, he returned to school to study environmental history, and later founded Centric Law, the consulting division of the Rose Law Firm of Lake Oswego, Oregon. He represents clients in the sustainability, renewable energy and climate change community. He also speaks and teaches on subjects involving history, climate change and the law.

    Sean is an internationally published historian, with a focus on the history of climate and climate change. He writes and produces a historical podcast, Second Decade, on the Recorded History Podcast Network, and he also teaches online history classes on a wide variety of subjects. While at the University of Oregon, Sean developed and taught an innovative course on the history of climate change. His work has been featured in academic and legal journals in the United States and Europe. He is also a novelist, having published in the horror and science fiction genres.

    Sean holds a Ph.D. in environmental history from the University of Oregon and a J.D. from Tulane Law School.

    Downtown Bend: The Library Book Club

    12:00 PM - Thursday - Brooks Room

    Bring your lunch, and feed your mind at this thought-provoking and fun book club. Everyone welcome!

    Discussing 2018's The Library Book by Susan Orlean. From Booklist: "Libraries pulse with stories and not only those preserved in books. When creative nonfiction virtuoso Orlean (Rin Tin Tin, 2011) first visited Los Angeles' Central Library, she was transfixed. Then she learned about the 1986 fire, which many believed was deliberately set and which destroyed or damaged more than one million books and shut the library down for seven years. Intrigued, Orlean embarked on an all-points research quest, resulting in this kaleidoscopic and riveting mix of true crime, history, biography, and immersion journalism. While her forensic account of the conflagration is eerily mesmerizing, Orlean is equally enthralling in her awestruck detailing of the spectrum of activities that fill a typical Central Library day, and in her profiles of current staff and former head librarians, including brilliant and forceful Tessa Kelso, who ran into censorship issues, and consummate professional Mary Jones, who was forced out in 1905 because the board wanted a man. Orlean widens the lens to recount the crucial roles public libraries have played in America and to marvel at librarians' innovative and caring approaches to meeting diverse needs and cutting-edge use of digital technologies. She also attempts to fathom the truth about enigmatic Harry Peak, the prime arson suspect. Probing, prismatic, witty, dramatic, and deeply appreciative, Orlean's chronicle celebrates libraries as sanctuaries, community centers, and open universities run by people of commitment, compassion, creativity, and resilience".

    Bend author Michael Lankford explores Leonardo da Vinci in this presentation based on Lankford's new book "Becoming Leonardo--an Exploded View of the Life of Leonardo da Vinci."

    How it is we know Leonardo? Discover the real evidence and the actual man who emerges once we take a new look at one of history's most enigmatic and brilliant men.

    "Becoming Leonardo" reveals what it was like to live in the 15th century, and da Vinci's life as a social outsider.

    Lankford, who joined COCC in 2006 and has taught creative writing, creative nonfiction and academic composition as a part-time instructor for the college, has been fascinated with da Vinci since high school. His habit of exhaustively reading material by and about one particular individual—which started at age 20 when he lived in a remote Oklahoma farmhouse and was consumed with Tolstoy—doesn't normally lead to writing a book of his own, he admitted. A biography he read on da Vinci some five years ago changed that. "Becoming Leonardo" is a Wall Street Journal 2017 Book of the Year A Spectator (UK) 2017 Book of the Year.

    Redmond: Know Machines - What Computers Know (and Don't Know)

    3:00 PM - Saturday - Multi-Purpose Room

    Examine the history of AI and how machine learning works.

    Smart machines have been a part of science, and science fiction, for decades.

Learn how software engineers enable "dumb" computers to perform seemingly smart tasks, and the truth behind algorithms and big data. This presentation examines the history of AI, how machine learning works, and enables attendees to make informed decisions about what computing machines know (and don't know).

    La Pine: The Library Book Club

    12:00 PM - Thursday - Meeting Room

    Discuss "The Given World" by Marian Palaia.

    From a quiet family farm in Montana in the 60s to the grit and haze of San Francisco in the 70s to a gypsy-populated, post-war Saigon, The Given World spins around its unconventional and unforgettable heroine, Riley. When her big brother is declared MIA in Vietnam, young Riley packs up her shattered heart and leaves her family, her first love, and “a few small things” behind. By trial and error she builds a new life, working on cars, delivering newspapers, tending bar. She befriends, rescues, and is rescued by a similarly vagabond cast of characters whose “‘unraveled souls’ sting hardest and linger the longest.” (The New York Times Book Review) Foolhardy, funny, and wise, Riley’s challenge as she grows into a woman is simple: survive long enough to go home again, or at least figure out where home is, and who might be among the living there.

    Downtown Bend: Know Machines - Typewriter History and Empowering Clerks

    2:00 PM - Sunday - Brooks Room

    Explore the history and spend time with some local typewriters of note. Empowering Clerks will be on hand to issue Joy Permits and other Playful Paperwork.

    First commercially produced in 1874, typewriters did not be become common until the mid-1880s. Typewriters have since been replaced by computers but in their heyday they were indispensable tools in homes, offices, and classrooms for almost all written communication.

    During the presentation Kelly Cannon-Miller will highlight the history of typewriters while showcasing typewriters of local historic significance. A selection of typewriters will be on display and two Empowering Clerks will be on hand to use the typewriters to issue a variety of Playful Paperwork including Joy Permits and the Forgiver's License. If you have a special typewriter in your life, please feel free to bring it along for the event.

    Kelly Cannon-Miller is the Executive Director for the Deschutes Historical Museum located in Historic Reid School.

    12:00 PM - Tuesday - Meeting Room

    Discuss News of the World by Paulette Jiles.

    Feed your mind at this monthly lunch-hour book club. All are welcome to attend. Free and open to the public.

    About the Book:
    Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd has made a fairly comfortable living in northern Texas. He travels from town to town, reading current news of ratified amendments and polar expeditions to (mostly) attentive audiences. When he's asked to deliver a 10-year-old German girl back to her relatives in San Antonio in exchange for $50 in gold, he agrees. Johanna's parents had been killed by the Kiowa, but she was spared and was raised as one of their own for four years. Captain Kidd finds that Johanna, now in his care, has lost nearly all memory of her language, comportment, and upbringing. Facing a 400-mile journey filled with threats of ambush and an uncooperative charge, Captain Kidd wonders if his choice to deliver the girl was the right one. Jiles' background as a poet is particularly evident when the captain and Johanna learn how to communicate, bantering bits of their respective languages back and forth. Jiles' lyrical style and minimal punctuation allow the reader to become immersed in the dusty Texan landscape, witnessing the anguish, fear, compassion, and joy in the unlikely pair's journey.

    About the author:
    Paulette Jiles is a poet and memoirist. She is the author of Cousins, a memoir, and the bestselling novels Enemy Women and Stormy Weather. She lives in San Antonio, Texas.

    The true story of how the keepers of the Warsaw Zoo saved hundreds of people from Nazi hands. When Germany invaded Poland, Stuka bombers devastated Warsaw--and the city's zoo along with it. With most of their animals dead, zookeepers Jan and Antonina Zabinski began smuggling Jews into empty cages. Another dozen "guests" hid inside the Zabinskis' villa, emerging after dark for dinner, socializing, and, during rare moments of calm, piano concerts. Jan, active in the Polish resistance, kept ammunition buried in the elephant enclosure and stashed explosives in the animal hospital.
