Past March Author Talks and Book Discussions
Author Olivia Hoblitzelle will discuss her book Aging with Wisdom. “Drawing deeply on her own experiences as well as stories and studies about aging from other cultures, Hoblitzelle (Ten Thousand Joys & Ten Thousand Sorrows) explores the ways that readers can nourish their inner lives and spirit even as their bodies age and facilities diminish.” – Publisher’s Weekly Review
7-9pm, Library Assembly Room
Dr. Mara Prentiss discusses how we can shift entirely to renewable energy. Her book is a very clear and readable resource for the energy revolution that many nations are already implementing. How can we accomplish this in the US, and how fast? And how can we overcome the resistance from the fossil fuel industry? Brought to you by Science for the Public, Belmont Media Center, and Belmont Public Library. On average renewable energy can supply more than 100% total current and future US energy consumption, but at each moment we need the actual supply to meet the actual demand. Moving toward an all electrical energy economy can make this dream a reality.
Dr. Prentiss is author of Energy Revolution: The Physics and the Promise of Efficient Technology. For more information, visit Energy: Be the Change
