Community (Public)

  1. Celebrate Amherst Block Party

    September 18, 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ Downtown Amherst

  2. Words Like Barbed Wire: The Poetry of World War One

    September 20, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM @ Jones Library Woodbury Room

    Barry Deitz presents a look at the poetry of the time, tracing the lives of several writers through the war, their experiences good and bad, and the effect of the war on those who survived. He also looks at how this poetry reflects the end of the old world of the 19th Century and the birth - in hope, glory, and blood - of the Twentieth.

  3. The Forgiveness Project: Documentary Screening

    September 21, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Woodbury Room Jones Library

    Join us for a screening of The Imam & the Pastor and An African Answer. These two shorter, related documentaries about a Muslim cleric and a Christian pastor in Nigeria are not about religion, but about opening to one another across great divides. Both men have deep hatred for each other, until they begin to listen to each other, transforming their relationship and inspiring the formation of a peace institute. *** The Forgiveness Project, a year-long exploration throughout the Pioneer Valley on the theme of Forgiveness through community conversations and the arts, invites Amherst to read together Desmond Tutu's new book The Book of Forgiving throughout the month of September. Several copies are available to check out. There will be a community-wide conversation time of sharing questions, challenges, thoughts and feelings on this complex subject on Sunday, September 28. Co-sponsored by the Jones Library and Art & Soul.

  4. jubilat/Jones Reading Series

    September 21, 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM @ Goodwin Room Jones Library

    Join us for the first event in the 2014-15 Reading Series, featuring poets Arda Collins and Matthew Rohrer. Meet the Poets: An informal Q&A session will follow each reading. The jubilat/Jones Series showcases established and emerging poets in a number of readings each year.

  5. The Forgiveness Project: A Community-Wide Conversation on the Subject of Forgiveness

    September 28, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM @ Woodbury Room Jones Library

    This conversation about the real challenges and possibilities of forgiveness as a human practice will be loosely based on Desmond Tutu's new release The Book of Forgiving. You do not have to have read the book to participate in this conversation. Facilitated by Susannah Crolius of Art & Soul/The Forgiveness Project and Karen Blanchard, PhD., faculty at SIT Graduate Institute, with dramatic readings from Tutu's book by Yvette Sirker or the Enchanted Circle Theater. Co-sponsored by the Jones Library and Art & Soul.
