    At the bar of a grand hotel in a small Irish town sits 84-year-old Maurice Hannigan. He's alone, as usual - though tonight is anything but usual. Pull up a stool and charge your glass, because Maurice is finally ready to tell his story. Over the course of this evening, he will raise five toasts to the five people who have meant the most to him. Through these stories - of unspoken joy and regret, a secret tragedy kept hidden, a fierce love that never found its voice - the life of one man will be powerful and poignantly laid bare. Beautifully heart-warming and powerfully felt, the voice of Maurice Hannigan will stay with you long after all is said and done.

    ONLINE ONLY Central Oregon Writers Guild - The Virtues of Generative Writing

    5:30 PM - Tuesday - CANCELLED

    Go to: http://centraloregonwritersguild.com/index.html for link to the presentation.

    Tips to apply generative writing to any of your writing projects.

    Generative writing or prompt writing can be a way to spawn ideas, tap into memory, and develop characters or settings. But too often writers try prompt writing, look at what they have written, and think, “now what?”

    This workshop will explain the origins and theories behind prompt writing, talk about ways to layer prompts to reveal richer content, and offer practice with the technique. Finally, we will explore ways to apply generative writing to new and in-progress writing projects.

    Kristin R. Dorsey is a Professor in Humanities at Central Oregon Community College. She teaches workshops in the community and currently runs a monthly generative writing class through COCC’s Continuing Education class. When she finds time to write, her focus is on hybrid nonfiction, mostly memoir.

    The mission of Central Oregon Writers Guild is to provide Central Oregon area writers a forum for mutual support and education through meetings, annual events and workshops. Their goal is to advance growth and success for individual writers of all genres and at all skill levels. Founded in 2002, the Guild is a non-profit organization, where volunteers coordinate the group's activities.

    ONLINE ONLY: Deschutes by the Decade - Economic Change and the 1950s

    6:00 PM - Thursday - Brooks Room

    The 1950s brought economic change to Deschutes County.

    Around Deschutes County, the 1950s marked a time of economic change. 1950 ended with the Shevlin-Hixon mill’s closure and sale to rival Brooks-Scanlon. Shevlin-Hixon crews felled the last tree on December 12, with the last log sawn and milled on December 26. While Brooks-Scanlon operated beyond the 1950s, over the decade the log trains gave way to log trucks and logging camps were disbanded. The trestle timbers from Shevlin Park were re-milled and used for the expansion of the Bend Library.

    Hollywood came calling in the 1950s. A production company owned in part by Kirk Douglas built “Fort Benham” near Benham Falls, a western movie-style frontier ‘fort’ specifically for the movie Indian Fighter. The movies Tonka and Oregon Passage, as well as episodes of the TV show Have Gun Will Travel, filmed at the fort.

    The Redmond Airport terminal was dedicated in 1950, and in 1951 construction began on Central Oregon District Hospital in Redmond. In 1952, the first traffic lights arrived in Central Oregon. Cable television arrived in fall of 1955; cost of installation was $149.96.

    The Skyliners Ski Club reactivated its membership in 1954, building new ski huts and improving access to skiing at Tumalo Hill. Two members of the Skyliners, Bill Healy and Gene Gillis, thought bigger: Bachelor Butte, which opened October 1958 with one lift, two rope tows, and Egan Lodge. A new economic driver for the region was born, with day lift tickets costing $3, and season passes $50.

    The decade came to an end with drama in the skies: residents were consumed with the news of a UFO sighting over Redmond. The population of Deschutes County has inched up only slightly to 23,100.

    The Deschutes Public Library turns 100 years old in 2020! We celebrate our 100th anniversary with a new series of programs titled "Deschutes by the Decades." This series will explore and reflect upon Deschutes County's history through the last ten decades. Although there has been tremendous change over these 100 years, the Deschutes Public Library's commitment and dedication to serve the residents and communities in Deschutes County has stayed steadfast.

    ONLINE ONLY: History, Literature and Memory in 20th-century Ireland

    12:00 PM - Saturday - Meeting Room

    Examine the intersection of twentieth century Irish politics and literature.

    Ireland is a country whose poets are sometimes rebels and whose rebels often become statesmen. The Easter Rising of 1916 that struck for Irish independence was led by an accomplished poet, Patrick Pearse, and was immortalized by another, the Nobel Laureate William Butler Yeats, who himself later served in the Irish senate. Decades later, the imprisoned IRA gunman Bobby Sands wrote poems and songs from his cell shortly before his death on hunger strike. Politicians of all stripes regularly invoked powerful memories of historic injustices and of the courage and sacrifices of those who came before them while many of the people in their communities struggled to overcome the traumatic history that had shaped their lives. All the while, poets, playwrights and musicians expressed, with sensitivity and nuance, these bitter and often violent political conflicts along with the strength, resilience and humanity of the Irish people who lived through it all. Indeed, throughout the twentieth century politics and literature in Ireland were often so firmly intertwined that it can be a challenge, even now, to differentiate between the two. This lecture focuses on the intersection of history, literature, and memory in Ireland from the first performance in 1902 of W.B. Yeats' controversial play Cathleen ni Houlihan to the Good Friday Peace Agreement in Northern Ireland in 1998.

    David Campion is the Dr. Robert B. Pamplin Jr. Associate Professor of History at Lewis & Clark College in Portland where he has taught since 2002. He received his BA in history and English from Georgetown University and his MA and PhD in history from the University of Virginia. His research interests include Modern Britain and Ireland, the British Empire, and Modern South Asia. He has published on such topics as colonial policing in India, Irish nationalism, and decolonization in the British Empire. He has given lectures and taught at universities in the United States, Britain, Ireland, India, Hong Kong and Macau. *ani*

Local writers will be on hand to help you get your toast just right.

    About the band:
    Since 2009 Five Pint Mary, has been playing a unique blend of original and traditional Irish/Celtic folk-rock. Based in Bend this multi-generational group of seasoned musicians dish out a well-honed brew of spirited music, both traditional and original. With tightly woven 4-5 part harmony vocals, the band creates a sound that is infectious, rollicking, and fun. Bordering on the boisterous, their sound hearkens back to the old-world pubs of Europe. Influenced by the traditional music of Ireland and Scotland, a bit of the Eastern Block, and infused with a ripple of American Bluegrass, Five Pint Mary delivers a fresh and lively world sound. Band members include Michael Holmes (guitar/accordion/vocals), Sarah Pollock-Holmes (vocals/guitar/Irish tin-whistles), Rick Havern (banjo/bazouki/vocals), Matt Gwinup (mandolin/cajon /vocals), Evan Holmes (violin),and Tyler Cranor (bass/vocals).
