Wisconsin Book Festival presents Terry Tempest Williams

Wisconsin Book Festival presents Terry Tempest Williams

Central Library, Meeting Rooms 301 & 302
07/07/2017
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

America’s national parks are breathing spaces in a world in which such spaces are steadily disappearing, which is why more than 300 million people visit the parks each year. Now Terry Tempest Williams, the author of the environmental classic Refuge and the beloved memoir When Women Were Birds, returns with The Hour of Land, a literary celebration of our national parks and an exploration of what they mean to us and what we mean to them. From the Grand Tetons in Wyoming to Acadia in Maine to Big Bend in Texas, Williams creates a series of lyrical portraits that illuminate the unique grandeur of each place while delving into what it means to shape a landscape with its own evolutionary history into something of our own making. Part memoir, part natural history, and part social critique, The Hour of Land is a meditation and a manifesto on why wild lands matter to the soul of America. Books for sale at the event, author signing to follow.

Presented in partnership with Gathering Waters: Wisconsin's Alliance for Land Trusts, the Ice Age Trail Alliance, Natural Heritage Land Trust, and Madison Audubon Society. A free reception with these four organizations will be held in the Madison Room from 5:30-6:30 PM in advance of the reading.

Bubbler, Central Library
07/09/2017
1:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us for Madison's #BikeTheArt tour on Sunday, July 9, 2017.
Enter Central Library at the side door on Mifflin St. NOTE: Only the Bubbler Room will be open from 1:30-2:00. The rest of the library will be closed all day.

Bike the Art is a monthly curated bicycle tour of local art spaces. As always, come for all or part of the tour. It's free and open to the public.

SCHEDULE:

1:30-2:00pm The Bubbler at Madison Public Library: Memory Cloths Circle - take home portable embroidery kit!

2:25-3:30pm Madison Circus Space - Try out the circus arts like juggling, acroyoga and hooping! (Fill out the online waiver in advance to save time.)

3:40-4:00pm Baraboo Woodworks - Tour and demos!

4:00-5:00pm One-One Thousand - Try shibori dyeing and enjoy a few libations!

The July tour on Sunday, July 9, 2017, will focus on opportunities to “make and do,” starting at 1:30pm at The Bubbler, Madison Public Library’s makerspace, featuring their current artist-in-residence: Memory Cloths Circle. This project evolved from the 2013 MMOCA Triennial as a Relational Art project at Lakeside Coffee House where people were invited to tell stories and embroider their memories. Participants will have a chance to learn more about the project and join the Memory Cloth Circle members in exploring their own experiences through the creation of their own unique memory cloth. Don’t worry about rushing the process along - the group will be sending portable embroidery kits with each participant as they head out for the rest of the tour. The Bubbler at Madison Public Library is a hub that connects artists to the community and the community to artists through free hands-on workshops, community-wide initiatives, exhibitions, and events.

The tour will leave The Bubbler at 2:00pm and arrive at Madison Circus Space at 2:25pm, where participants will have the opportunity to learn to juggle, give hooping a try, test out acroyoga, and sample other circus arts. The Madison Circus Space exists to be a home for the circus arts in Madison. MCS welcomes clubs and classes in addition to providing a practice space for dedicated performers and hobbyists. Juggling, German wheel, stiltwalking, aerial arts, acrobatic yoga, and hoop dancing are just a few of the activities that take place in the space. MCS holds workshops and events that are open to the community and meant to foster appreciation for the variety of circus-related talent and creativity in Madison.

At 3:30pm, we will continue to Baraboo Woodworks, arriving at 3:40pm for a tour and demo in their sawmill, shop & showroom.
We’ll finish next door at the new One-OneThousand studio from 4:00-5:00pm, where participants can try their hand at shibori dyeing and enjoy a few libations. One-OneThousand is a creative studio and membership business for designers, creators, and makers of handmade goods to commune, collaborate, and grow. One-OneThousand aims to help local maker businesses thrive by equipping them with the business skills, resources, and connections they need to grow and provide an outlet for hobbyists to explore their creative capabilities and test the boundaries of making things by hand.

Bike the Art tours are being scheduled each month from May through October. Most stops feature special activities or receptions, including artist/curator talks, food art, video screenings, performances, hands-on experiences and more. The next tour will take place on Sunday, August 20 and will feature artwork in public and outdoor spaces, ending at the new Makeshift Festival at Olbrich Park.

Bike the Art is sponsored by Dane Arts and endorsed by the Madison Arts Commission. Additional support is provided by: Artist & Craftsman, Cadence Coffee, Cafe Domestique, Humble Pie, Machinery Row Bicycles, Old Sugar Distillery, Promega Corporation, Underground Food Collective, and other partners

07/12/2017
4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

This event is held at Haen Family Park (7702 Tree Lane)

Enjoy play-centered, child led activities in the park each week. The library will provide special play equipment to spark your children's imagination. At the end of each event, kids will create a Play Story, drawing and/or writing about their play for that day. Wear messy clothes, bring a water bottle, (optional) bring a picnic dinner or purchase a meal from the "Let's Eat Out" local food carts, and make an evening of it!​ This event is created in partnership with the Madison Parks Division and funded in part by a grant from the Madison Public Library Foundation.

“The physical exercise and emotional stretching that children enjoy in unorganized play is more varied and less time-bound than is found in organized sports. Playtime—especially unstructured, imaginative, exploratory play—is increasingly recognized as an essential component of wholesome child development.”

07/19/2017
4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

This event is held at Haen Family Park (7702 Tree Lane)

Enjoy play-centered, child led activities in the park each week. The library will provide special play equipment to spark your children's imagination. At the end of each event, kids will create a Play Story, drawing and/or writing about their play for that day. Wear messy clothes, bring a water bottle, (optional) bring a picnic dinner or purchase a meal from the "Let's Eat Out" local food carts, and make an evening of it!​ This event is created in partnership with the Madison Parks Division and funded in part by a grant from the Madison Public Library Foundation.

“The physical exercise and emotional stretching that children enjoy in unorganized play is more varied and less time-bound than is found in organized sports. Playtime—especially unstructured, imaginative, exploratory play—is increasingly recognized as an essential component of wholesome child development.”

The quest for water in a futuristic wasteland pits a group of survivors against a ruthless biker gang.

“What a title! It can mean so many things. Either the exterminators are from the year 3000 OR it could mean these are the people who exterminate the year 3000 itself. How crazy and far-out would that be?!?! Likely as not, it’s just called that because it sounds cool and they decided the cars are called ‘exterminators’” (Nerdist).

This event is held at Reindahl Park (1818 Portage Road)

Enjoy play-centered, child led activities in the park each week. The library will provide special play equipment to spark your child's imagination. At the end of each event, kids will create a Play Story, drawing and/or writing about their play for that day. Wear messy clothes, bring a water bottle, (optional) bring a picnic dinner or purchase a meal from the "Let's Eat Out" local food carts, and make an evening of it!​ This event is created in partnership with the Madison Parks Division and funded in part by a grant from the Madison Public Library Foundation.

“The physical exercise and emotional stretching that children enjoy in unorganized play is more varied and less time-bound than is found in organized sports. Playtime—especially unstructured, imaginative, exploratory play—is increasingly recognized as an essential component of wholesome child development.”
