Tochi Onyebuchi joined the Providence Community Library as part of their PCL Reads series on Wednesday, February 10th to discuss Riot Baby, a companion read for the 2021 Reading Across Rhode Island program. Co-hosted virtually by Amy VanderWeele at South Providence Library and Rhode Island Center for the Book, the conversation was moderated by Jonathan Pitts-Wiley, the Artistic Director of Mixed Magic Theatre (MMT) in Pawtucket. To watch a recording of the interview, visit the Providence Community Library Youtube Page. Find Riot Baby at your local library, as an ebook through RI's eZone, or contact Amy Vanderweele at the South Providence Library for multiple copies for a book club. The music in this episode is Soft Inspiration by Scott Holmes. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Tochi Onyebuchi is the author of Beasts Made of Night, its sequel Crown of Thunder, War Girls, and his adult fiction debut “Riot Baby,” published by Tor.com in January 2020. He has graduated from Yale University, New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, Columbia Law School, and L'institut d'études politiques with a Masters degree in Global Business Law. His short fiction has appeared in Asimov's Science Fiction, Omenana, BLACK ENOUGH: STORIES OF BEING YOUNG & BLACK IN AMERICA, and elsewhere. His non-fiction has appeared in Uncanny Magazine, Nowhere Magazine, Tor.com and the Harvard Journal of African-American Public Policy. He is the winner of the Ilube Nommo Award for Best Speculative Fiction Novel by an African and has appeared in Locus Magazine's Recommended Reading list. Born in Massachusetts and raised in Connecticut, Tochi is a consummate New Englander, preferring the way the tree leaves turn the color of fire on I-84 to mosquitoes and being able to boil eggs on pavement. He has worked in criminal justice, the tech industry, and immigration law, and prays every day for a new album from System of a Down. ABOUT THE BOOK Rooted in foundational loss and the hope that can live in anger, “Riot Baby” is both a global dystopian narrative and intimate family story with quietly devastating things to say about love, fury, and the black American experience. Ella and Kev are brother and sister, both gifted with extraordinary power. Their childhoods are defined and destroyed by structural racism and brutality. Their futures might alter the world. When Kev is incarcerated for the crime of being a young black man in America, Ella―through visits both mundane and supernatural―tries to show him the way to a revolution that could burn it all down. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/rhodyradio/message

Opening Song: By Our Love by Christy Nockels Lyrics: Brothers, let us come together Walking in the Spirit, there's much to be done We will come reaching, out from our comforts And they will know us by our love Sisters, we were made for kindness We can pierce the darkness as He shines through us We will come reaching, with a song of healing And they will know us by our love The time is now Come Church arise Love with His hands See with His eyes Bind it around you Let it never leave you And they will know us by our love Children, You are hope for justice, Stand firm in the Truth now, set your hearts above You will be reaching, long after we're gone And they will know you by your love Passage: 27 And Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And on the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” 28 And they told him, “John the Baptist; and others say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.” 29 And he asked them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered him, “You are the Christ.” 30 And he strictly charged them to tell no one about him. 31 And he began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 And he said this plainly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. 33 But turning and seeing his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.” 34 And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 35 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it. 36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? 37 For what can a man give in return for his soul? 38 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” (Mark 8:27–38 ESV) Musical Reflection: “Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us,” tune by William Bradbury Reflection Notes: The tune BRADBURY is named for its composer, a New Englander from the first half of the nineteenth century. The sweet melody for the verses repeats, then is followed by a strong refrain. Prayer: O God, the life of the faithful, the strong helper of them that call on you: hearken to our supplications; and as you do put within us a hearty desire to pray, so grant us, O most Loving, your aid and comfort in our prayers; and may the souls that thirst for your promises be filled from your abundance; through Jesus Christ or Lord. Amen.

You might not think you have too much in common with Henry David Thoreau – an American naturalist, author, and philosopher from the 1800s. Thoreau is best known for his book Walden, a reflection upon his two-years living in the woods around Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. Suddenly his experience as the original “social-distancer” seems quite relevant. The famous New Englander had a poignant appreciation for nature – something many of us rediscovered this year as the world closed in and people went outside to smell the flowers and to admire the wildlife that reclaimed parts of our towns and cities as human traffic decreased. Author David Gessner is inspired by Thoreau. In Gessner's latest book, “Quiet Desperation, Savage Delight: Sheltering with Thoreau in the Age of Crisis,” he finds insight about how to live through a pandemic from the man who iconically self-isolated in a hut in the woods. Gessner is the author of 12 books and a professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.

Opening Song: The Lord's Prayer by Paul Zach and Leslie Jordan Lyrics: Our Father, who art in heaven Hallowed be thy Name Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done On earth, as it is in heaven Give us this day our daily bread And forgive us our debts As we forgive our debtors And lead us not into temptation But deliver us from evil For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever For thine is the kingdom, the power, and thе glory forever For thine is thе kingdom, the power, and the glory forever And ever Amen Passage: 26 When the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she lamented over her husband. 27 And when the mourning was over, David sent and brought her to his house, and she became his wife and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the LORD. 1 And the LORD sent Nathan to David. He came to him and said to him, “There were two men in a certain city, the one rich and the other poor. 2 The rich man had very many flocks and herds, 3 but the poor man had nothing but one little ewe lamb, which he had bought. And he brought it up, and it grew up with him and with his children. It used to eat of his morsel and drink from his cup and lie in his arms, and it was like a daughter to him. 4 Now there came a traveler to the rich man, and he was unwilling to take one of his own flock or herd to prepare for the guest who had come to him, but he took the poor man's lamb and prepared it for the man who had come to him.” 5 Then David's anger was greatly kindled against the man, and he said to Nathan, “As the LORD lives, the man who has done this deserves to die, 6 and he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.” 7 Nathan said to David, “You are the man! Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, ‘I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you out of the hand of Saul. 8 And I gave you your master's house and your master's wives into your arms and gave you the house of Israel and of Judah. And if this were too little, I would add to you as much more. 9 Why have you despised the word of the LORD, to do what is evil in his sight? You have struck down Uriah the Hittite with the sword and have taken his wife to be your wife and have killed him with the sword of the Ammonites. 10 Now therefore the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised me and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.' 11 Thus says the LORD, ‘Behold, I will raise up evil against you out of your own house. And I will take your wives before your eyes and give them to your neighbor, and he shall lie with your wives in the sight of this sun. 12 For you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel and before the sun.'” 13 David said to Nathan, “I have sinned against the LORD.” And Nathan said to David, “The LORD also has put away your sin; you shall not die.” (2 Samuel 11:26–12:13 ESV) Musical Reflection: “Savior, Like a Shepherd Lead Us,” tune by William Bradbury Reflection Notes: The tune BRADBURY is named for its composer, a New Englander from the first half of the nineteenth century. The sweet melody for the verses repeats, then is followed by a strong refrain. Prayer: This is another day, O Lord. I know not what it will bring forth, but make me ready, Lord, for whatever it may be. If I am to stand up, help me to stand bravely. If I am to sit still, help me to sit quietly. If I am to lie low, help me to do it patiently. And if I am to do nothing, let me do it gallantly. Make these words more than words, and give me the Spirit of Jesus. Amen.
Ayla burned herself with a curling iron right on her face a week before her wedding. So people called in to make her feel better with their wedding injury disaster stories. We also learned how to save a life with a bag of potato chips, how a ripped bathing suit cost an Olympian a record, and what show Ayla is excited to see cancelled. We played Stump The Studio for Zac Brown Band tickets at Fenway and did an Elite 8 of how to annoy a New Englander in five words or less.

The subject of our Brain Strain started an interesting conversation about the older generation and their weird compulsion to hide money in the freezer. Talk about cold, hard cash. We wonder if this was for protection against moths or rodents back in the day.
A few days in, it seems that the Olympics are not going well for Japan. But its better than the woman who hired a hitman because she didn't want the bride's in laws at the wedding. Why would cigarette makers want cigarettes to be illegal? Is it wrong to tell a friend that you're creeped out by how much older her boyfriend is than her? And what five words make New Englanders angry?

You're listening to the Westerly Sun's podcast, where we talk about the best local events, new job postings, obituaries, and more. First, a bit of Rhode Island trivia. Today's trivia is brought to you by Perennial. Perennial's new plant-based drink “Daily Gut & Brain” is a blend of easily digestible nutrients crafted for gut and brain health. A convenient mini-meal, Daily Gut & Brain” is available now at the CVS Pharmacy in Wakefield. Now for some trivia. Did you know that the first ordained Rabbi to serve as an Alderman on the Chicago City Council was born in Newport in 1934? Solomon Gutstein spent his first ten years in Rhode Island before he and his parents relocated to Chicago. A notable attorney and an expert in real estate law, he won his seat in 1975 and though he lost it in 1979, won again in 1987. Now for our feature story: New England is looking like the model for dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic that has ravaged the United States and the rest of the world. COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths in the region have been steadily dropping as more than 60% of residents in all six states have received at least one dose of the vaccine. The Deep South states of Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi, in comparison, are the least vaccinated at around 35%, and new cases relative to the population are generally running higher there than in most of New England. Nationally, about 50% of Americans have received at least one shot. In Massachusetts, health officials this past week determined that none of the state's cities and towns are at high risk for the spread of COVID-19 for the first time since they started issuing weekly assessments last August. In Rhode Island, coronavirus hospitalizations have hit their lowest levels in about eight months. New Hampshire is averaging about a death a week after peaking at about 12 a day during the virus's winter surge. And Vermont, the most heavily vaccinated state in the U.S. at more than 70%, went more than two weeks without a single reported coronavirus death. “It's an incredible change over such a short period of time,” said Dr. Tim Lahey, an infectious disease physician at the University of Vermont Medical Center in Burlington. Public health experts say the rest of the country could take some cues from New England as President Joe Biden pushes to get at least one vaccine dose into 70% of American adults by July 4, dangling the promise of free beer and other goodies. One thing the region appears to have done right: It was generally slower than other parts of the country to expand vaccine eligibility and instead concentrated more on reaching vulnerable groups of people, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, a former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director under President Barack Obama. New England leaders for the most part also embraced the recommendations of public health experts over economic priorities throughout the pandemic, said Dr. Albert Ko, who chairs the epidemiology department at the Yale School of Public Health in New Haven, Connecticut. That parts of the region were among the hardest hit in the early days of the outbreak also played a significant role. “We really went through it in those early moments,” Ko said. “That's left a big imprint on the population generally.” To be sure, some of the improvements in COVID-19 numbers can be attributed to warmer weather that is allowing New Englanders to socially distance outdoors more, experts say. In a series of tweets last weekend, Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University's School of Public Health in Providence, Rhode Island, contrasted the relatively low vaccination rates in Springfield, Massachusetts, one of the region's largest, poorest and most racially diverse cities, with the near-complete vaccination of Newton, an affluent, largely white Boston suburb. “So if you are in a high vaccination state, your job is not done,” Jha wrote. “Because across America, there are too many people and communities for whom vaccines still remain out of reach.” Nationwide, new coronavirus cases are down to about 15,000 per day on average, while deaths have plummeted to around 430 a day — levels not seen since late March 2020, during the very early stages of the crisis. The overall U.S. death toll is just short of 600,000. Even with cases down dramatically, New England hospitals are in many ways busier than ever, as patients return in droves after postponing medical care for more than a year. Paul Murphy, an emergency department nurse at Brigham and Women's, said some of his colleagues are feeling tired and burned out as frustrated patients can face wait times lasting hours these days. A hospital spokesperson stressed the median wait time is an hour or less. Still, the 54-year-old Warwick, Rhode Island, resident said it has been refreshing to step away from the work grind as the region comes back to life. Gone are the 50-hour-plus workweeks of the pandemic, with time now for his children's sports practices and other commitments. Faust, the emergency physician at Brigham, said he clocked in nearly an entire day of guilt-free sleep recently, something he couldn't have dreamed of during the throes of the pandemic. But like other health experts, he worries that the slowing pace of vaccinations could leave the nation vulnerable to newer, stronger virus mutations. “We're playing roulette if we continue to let the virus infect so many people,” Faust said. “That's what keeps me up at night now.” For more about the coronavirus pandemic and the latest on all things in and around Westerly, head over to westerlysun.com.

Billy and his wife Tanja moved to Germany to the town where she grew up. He was born in Westerly and grew up in Ashaway where he attended school and graduated from Chariho High. After service to his county in the U.S Marine Corps he married his former wife and best friend Amanda Mills and spent many years as a installer for ADT in the Tennessee area. He leaves behind his wife and daughter from his first marriage, his mother, sisters, and grandmother, along with several nieces and nephews. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. Billy will be laid to rest at his former home in Clarksville, Tennessee where his daughter resides at a later date. The family wishes to thank the American Consulate in Munich, US Senator Jack Reed and US Senator Sheldon Whitehouse for their assistance in getting Billy back to Tennessee. Thank you for taking a moment today to remember and celebrate Billy's life. That's it for today, we'll be back next time with more!

Important Events June 2, 1840 Today is the birthday of the English novelist and poet Thomas Hardy. A Victorian realist like George Eliot, Thomas Hardy was a product of provincial England. A fan of John Milton, the Romanticism of William Wordsworth influenced his writing. He's most remembered for his novels set in rural Wessex, Far From the Madding Crowd (1874) and Tess of the D'Urbervilles (1891). In Shaun Bythell's book, The Diary of a Bookseller, he shares a common mispronunciation of Thomas's first literary success, “A customer at 11.15 a.m. asked for a copy of Far from the Maddening Crowd. In spite of several attempts to explain that the book's title is actually Far from the Madding Crowd, he resolutely refused to accept that this was the case, even when the overwhelming evidence of a copy of it was placed on the counter under this nose: 'Well, the printers have got that wrong.' Despite the infuriating nature of this exchange, I ought to be grateful: he has given me an idea for the title of my autobiography should I ever be fortunate enough to retire.” In Tess the D'Urbervilles, Thomas gives us a charming description of summer. He wrote, “The season developed and matured. Another year's instalment of flowers, leaves, nightingales, thrushes, finches, and such ephemeral creatures, took up their positions where only a year ago others had stood in their place when these were nothing more than germs and inorganic particles. Rays from the sunrise drew forth the buds and stretched them into long stalks, lifted up sap in noiseless streams, opened petals, and sucked out scents in invisible jets and breathings.” And here's an excerpt where Tess compares the stars to apples. “Did you say the stars were worlds, Tess?" "Yes." "All like ours?" "I don't know, but I think so. They sometimes seem to be like the apples on our stubbard-tree. Most of them splendid and sound - a few blighted." "Which do we live on - a splendid one or a blighted one?" "A blighted one.” Today, the National Trust takes care of Thomas Hardy's charming thatch cottage and garden near Dorchester. Thomas's great-grandfather built the cottage. In 1891, workers were digging on Thomas Hardy's property called Max Gate. They were installing a drain in the driveway when they discovered a large druid stone that thrilled Thomas, and he set it in his garden. Nearly a century later, it was discovered that Hardy's house was situated on top of a large Neolithic enclosure - an ancient stone circle - and burial site. Here's an excerpt poem by Thomas Hardy, which began writing in 1913, called “The Shadow on the Stone.” It took him three years to complete the poem, and the shadow of the gardener that he sees is that of his wife Emma, who had passed away. I went by the Druid stone That broods in the garden white and lone, And I stopped and looked at the shifting shadows That at some moments fall thereon From the tree hard by with a rhythmic swing, And they shaped in my imagining To the shade that a well-known head and shoulders Threw there when she was gardening. During the 1860s, as a young man - before he became known as a poet and writer - Thomas Hardy took a job as a trainee architect while he was going to school in London for architecture. One of his first jobs was to move remains and grave markers at St Pancras to make way for the Midland Railway line. Charles Dickens referred to the St Pancras churchyard in his Tale of Two Cities as the place where Jerry Cruncher used to fish - meaning he robbed graves. Despite his unhappy task, Thomas had a burst of inspiration, and he decided to place hundreds of the headstones on their sides and nestle them around an ash tree. The effect was that of a sunburst radiating out from the trunk. Over time, the Ash tree became known as the Hardy Tree at St Pancras Old Churchyard in London. As the tree's roots intertwined with the headstones, the Hardy Tree developed a bit of a reputation and fascinated generations of future writers. Today, the Hardy Tree, still surrounded by grave markers, is an obscure stop for tourists. June 2, 1865 Today is the birthday of the artist, costume designer, poet, and writer Minnie Aumônier ("o·mo·nyé"). Over the years, Minnie's life story has passed into obscurity, although we know she was born into an artistic family. In 1876, her father, William, founded an architectural sculpture firm in London known as Aumonier Studios. Her Uncle James was a painter. Minnie wrote some beautiful verses about the garden. One of her verses says, “There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.” Minnie was romantic and sentimental. Her poetry is sugar sweet and winsome - the kind of verse that ends up on garden art - like this verse: “When the world wearies and society ceases to satisfy, there is always the garden.” Unearthed Words Caroline wiped her cheek with the back of her gardening glove, leaving a dark smudge below one eye, then pulled off her gloves. 'But it's fitting in a way - Father loved the fact that a lilac only blossoms after a harsh winter.' Caroline reached over and smoothed the hair back from my brow with a light touch. How many times had my mother done that? 'It's a miracle all of this beauty emerges after such hardship, don't you think? ― Martha Hall Kelly, author, and native New Englander, Lilac Girls (New York Times bestseller) Grow That Garden Library Secret Gardens of Paris by Alexandra D'Arnoux and Bruno De Laubadere This book came out in 2000.

In 1961, Norton wrote his most famous book, The Phantom Tollbooth, which tells of a little boy named Milo who receives a make-believe Tollbooth with the power to take him to the Lands Beyond. In this imaginary world, Milo meets many extraordinary characters, including a Bee obsessed with spelling. Here's a cute little excerpt: “Then just as time ran out he spelled as fast as he could - “v-e-g-e-t-a-b-l-e”. “Can you spell everything?" asked Milo admiringly. "Just about," replied the bee with a hint of pride in his voice. "You see, years ago I was just an ordinary bee minding my own business, smelling flowers all day, and occasionally picking up part-time work in people's bonnets. Then one day I realized that I'd never amount to anything without an education and, being naturally adept at spelling, I decided that—” At that moment, another far-fetched character enters the story. Now the etymology of the curious blend “spelling bee” has never been fully established - although it is a distinctly American term. When the pioneers were settling this country, they held all kinds of bees to help each other accomplish arduous tasks more quickly. For instance, there were sewing bees and quilting bees, husking bees, logging bees, spinning bees, and apple bees. There were also fire brigades and barn-raisings - both clearly missed opportunities for fire bees and barn bees. Perhaps that's how we got the term “spelling bee.” Maybe people just added the word bee to any novel social gathering, and somehow, spell bee just seemed to be perfect - a friendly term - describing a high-pressure competition intended to motivate kids to learn to spell. The term first appeared in print in the 1870s. Recently, word experts have suggested that the word bee was rooted in a Middle English word for favor or prayer - “bene,” which is the root of the word beneficial. Over time, bene became the English word “been” (or “bean”), which Websters defines as "voluntary help given by neighbors toward the accomplishment of a particular task." So the new theory is that the word evolved over time from bene to been to bee. Over on his blog, Scientist Sees Squirrel, Stephen Heard shared a post called Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Latin Names in which he included the very hard to spell: Weberbauerocereus cephalomacrostibas (“Weberbauer-uh-SEER-ee-us sef-ah-LO-mah-cros-tuh-bus”), which is a cactus and Cryptodidymosphaerites princetonensis (“krip-toe-did-uh-mus-fuh-rye-tees princeton-EN-sis"), which is a fungus. Stephen writes, “These names mostly have one thing in common: they try to do way, way too much. They try to mention a place, and the name of a related taxon, and a descriptive trait, and another descriptive trait, and then modify that … and then they keep on going.” Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener. And remember: "For a happy, healthy life, garden every day."

What's in a Name? Mycology Etymology Anna Henning Many scientific names for fungi (known as binomial nomenclature) are difficult enough to pronounce, let alone understand. Have you ever wondered what Craterellus means, or why turkey tails are in the genus Trametes? Knoweledge can be challenging to retain if we don't have a framework for understanding it, but this talk will make it fun and easy to remember! Have you ever struggled to remember the scientific names for mushrooms or felt confused when looking through your mycology guide? Often the clues to remembering and understanding binomials are hidden in plain sight, and after attending this talk I'll bet you will be surprised at how much more familiar these tricky names are to you than you thought! For word nerds, history buffs, and mycoenthusiasts alike. Anna Henning (they/them) is a self-taught mycoenthusiast and native New Englander currently living in Oregon. Lead by curiosity, Anna began learning about mushrooms in 2014, when they happened to be living in an incredibly diverse fungal region of central Massachusetts, and began sharing that knowledge online through Instagram under the name @Breakfast_of_champignonz in 2018. For the last year Anna has been sharing most Mondays about the etymological roots and meanings behind scientific mushroom names in an effort to make binomial nomenclature more accessible to the non-scientific community. An historically picky eater, Anna enjoys finding, photographing, and learning about mushrooms even more than eating them. Anna's favorite fungi to find are Grifola frondosa (Maitake/Hen of the Woods), Calostoma cinnabarinum (stalked puffball), Exsudoporus frostii, and Gyroporus cyanescans, and their life motto is, "Always be looking, always be learning!"

"Today on our journey along the Natchez Trace we come to Pigeon Roost which is just south of the junction of the Trace and Mississippi Highway 82. "Pigeon Roost was the site of a trading post established before 1790, belonging to a New Englander named Nathaniel Folsom who was married to a Choctaw woman. Their son, David Folsom, followed in their footsteps operating the trading post, and was a strong supporter of both Indian education and of Christianity. In 1826 David Folsom was elected Chief of the Northeast District of the Choctaw Nation. "PIGEON ROOST gets its name because passenger pigeons used to migrate through here by the millions. They roosted in the trees in this area. It is said that so many pigeons roosted here that their weight would brake the limbs of the greatest trees. In 1810 the ornithologist Alexander Wilson recorded that a flock observed by him was as much as 240 miles long, an estimated 2 and 1/4 billion pigeons. None of us traveling through here these days will see one of these birds, and more than likely you have never seen one, since the last known survivor of the species died in captivity in 1914.

According to a brand new study of people being pulled over for speeding, the most effective excuse to get out of a ticket is, "I'm sorry, I had no idea I was speeding". It just goes to show honesty is usually the best policy. Sarah said it the last time she was pulled over and it worked! Train said '54! That's horrible!' and that worked too.
Between the 1830's and the 1890's a majority of New Englanders went from farming and raising their own food to living in the city, earning a wage, and buying their food. In Brattleboro there were attempts to provide an anecdote to the impersonal mechanization of society. This is the story...

In the 1820’s and 1830s just after Maine became a state, after separating from Massachusetts, crop failures combined with cold weather caused some in New England to dream of warmer climates to the west. About this time Newspaperman Horace Greely was purported to have said “Go west, young man, and grow up with the country”? Many started the exodus for the Midwest. A major cradle of Midwestern settlement was Maine, Maine’s stony soil and the decline of its shipping trade pushed thousands of Mainers to get out just after it achieved statehood in 1820. The exodus was so bad that many newspaper editors in Maine wrote about the fear that the new state would actually be depopulated by “Illinois Fever” and the rush to lumbering towns along the Great Lakes — and then Oregon. Many of those Mainers and New Englanders settled in Indiana in addition to Illinois. They were greeted by a period of mild winters for a decade or so, but I was not to remain that way. The weather pattern shifted back to more typical Midwest cold and snowy winters. On March 30, 1843 2 feet was measured on the ground across much of Michigan, Illinois and Indiana. Until this point, farmers and loggers of the region had thought the climate to be better than New England – where many had just originated. The winter of 1842-43 dashed their hopes.

Sunflower Sisters: A Novel by Martha Hall Kelly Martha Hall Kelly’s million-copy bestseller Lilac Girls introduced readers to Caroline Ferriday. Now, in Sunflower Sisters, Kelly tells the story of Ferriday’s ancestor Georgeanna Woolsey, a Union nurse during the Civil War whose calling leads her to cross paths with Jemma, a young enslaved girl who is sold off and conscripted into the army, and Anne-May Wilson, a Southern plantation mistress whose husband enlists. “An exquisite tapestry of women determined to defy the molds the world has for them.”—Lisa Wingate, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Before We Were Yours Georgeanna “Georgey” Woolsey isn’t meant for the world of lavish parties and the demure attitudes of women of her stature. So when war ignites the nation, Georgey follows her passion for nursing during a time when doctors considered women on the battlefront a bother. In proving them wrong, she and her sister Eliza venture from New York to Washington, D.C., to Gettysburg and witness the unparalleled horrors of slavery as they become involved in the war effort. In the South, Jemma is enslaved on the Peeler Plantation in Maryland, where she lives with her mother and father. Her sister, Patience, is enslaved on the plantation next door, and both live in fear of LeBaron, an abusive overseer who tracks their every move. When Jemma is sold by the cruel plantation mistress Anne-May at the same time the Union army comes through, she sees a chance to finally escape—but only by abandoning the family she loves. Anne-May is left behind to run Peeler Plantation when her husband joins the Union army and her cherished brother enlists with the Confederates. In charge of the household, she uses the opportunity to follow her own ambitions and is drawn into a secret Southern network of spies, finally exposing herself to the fate she deserves. Inspired by true accounts, Sunflower Sisters provides a vivid, detailed look at the Civil War experience, from the barbaric and inhumane plantations, to a war-torn New York City, to the horrors of the battlefield. It’s a sweeping story of women caught in a country on the brink of collapse, in a society grappling with nationalism and unthinkable racial cruelty, a story still so relevant today. About Martha Hall Kelly Martha is a native New Englander who lives in Litchfield County Connecticut. She worked as an advertising copywriter for many years, and raised three wonderful children who are now mostly out of the nest. Her debut novel Lilac Girls, about Connecticut socialite Caroline Ferriday who championed a group of Ravensbruck Concentration Camp survivors known as The Rabbits who survived WWII Nazi experiments, was her first novel and an instant New York Times bestseller. The prequel to Lilac Girls, Lost Roses, was also an instant NYTimes bestseller. It features Caroline's mother Eliza Ferriday and her fight to save a group of Russian women, former aristocrats who lost everything in the Russian Revolution. The Lost Roses paperback published March 3rd, 2020 and the third book in the series, a Civil War novel about Caroline's great grandmother's family, arrives spring 2021. You'll find more info about both books on Martha's website: www.marthahallkelly.com and on Pinterest.

The RunRunLive 4.0 Podcast Episode 4-450 – Tom Grilk CEO BAA (Audio: link) audio:http://www.RunRunLive.com/PodcastEpisodes/epi4450.mp3] Link MarathonBQ – How to Qualify for the Boston Marathon in 14 Weeks - Intro: Hello my friends and welcome to episode 4-450 of the RunRunLive Podcast. Since we, you and I, have arrived at a milestone of sorts, we’ve got an extra special show for you today. Somehow I got past the rational screeners of the BAA and got Tom Grilk to do an interview with me. I had not planned for this to coincide with the announcements around this year’s Boston Marathon, but it did. I just happened to be talking with Tom while he was being chased by NPR and all the other real news organizations. He literally hung up with me and then spoke with NPR. Apparently there was some kerfuffle around letting people run Boston who had not ‘earned’ the right. You know, all that typical stuff around Boston. Anyhow, like I said before I have been an admirer of Tom from afar for a long time. He grew up with the local marathon royalty and now gets to hang out with the marathon royalty of the world as the CEO of the BAA. It’s a good chat. Tom is a well-spoken, thoughtful guy. And a runner. Since we were arriving at a milestone episode I figured I’d put his interview in here. In section one I’m going to talk about taking some time off the heal. In section two I’m going to give you a primer on a business bingo term that is all the rage these days. I have had a hilarious couple of weeks since we last talked. Remember I said I tweaked my knee? Yeah, so that’s a real thing. Haven’t run a step since that fateful Friday night hill workout. But it’s ok. I needed the break. Also in these two hilarious weeks was my wife’s birthday and our anniversary. Always a dangerous time. Fraught with opportunities to make an ass of myself. But, this year it was hilarious. I came down with some sort of plague. Not sure what it was. It might have been psychosomatic. Maybe stress related? I took a test for the currently popular plague, and it wasn’t that. But, here are the hilarious symptoms. I got a horrible rash over some large swaths of my body. Had to go to the clinic and get some prednisone. The fake Dr. at the clinic told me I had scabies – which, although matches the symptoms was not entirely possible given that I’ve been locked in my house for 12 months. At the same time I had 3-4 days of horrible gas. Like drive the humans out of the house gas. Like, painful, have to mute the zoom call every three minutes gas. Yes, and this is the set of symptoms that my long-suffering wife had to contend with during our anniversary. You can’t make this stuff up. Well, you could, but it wouldn’t be as funny. I’m out the other end of it, pun not entirely unintended, but I haven’t done a workout in two weeks, and I find myself oddly humbled and sanguine. I also drove my mom down to Foxboro to get her second shot of the vaccine which is a load off everyone’s mind. Poor Ollie is suffering through this as well as he creeps up on his 2nd birthday. No runs for him. I did manage to limp in a walk or two. But he doesn’t like to sit around. I’m going to give the knee a full 3 weeks off before I test it. One of the things I’ve learned over the many years is that coming back to early doesn’t pay. Tomorrow I’m going to take my old bike Fuji-san out for a roll. I’ll work in some strengthening yoga this week. We’ll see if we can’t get back out on the roads next week. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. I think I read that I can claim Irish citizenship because my Grandmother was an Irish citizen. Not sure what that buys me. I’ve never been to Ireland and would love to visit. Put that on the bucket list. Can you believe that it’s been over a year since I’ve gotten on an airplane? Holy cow!. Who knew? The world ahs changed so much in my lifetime. Change is where it’s at. There’s an old joke that everyone should embrace change, except, of course the people who are telling you to embrace change. Change is great, as long as it’s happening to someone else, right? It’s a journey. What I like about talking to Tom is that he’s discovering new things and helping the BAA bring change to the Boston Marathon. It’s a real skill of management to shepherd something with so much history through positive change. If you look at happy people, successful people and admired people they haven’t led calm and peaceful lives with no change. Just the opposite. Their lives have been filled with rapid and abrupt change. How they dealt with, or reacted to, or led through that change is what makes them happy and successful. So – my friends, don’t ask for a passive life that rolls down a smooth road from cradle to grave. Lack of change is not peace. Lack of change is stasis and ennui. Give a big hug to the bumpy road of life and smile you way through it. On with the show.

Section two – Digital Transformation - Outro Ok my friends digitally transformed through to the end of Episode 4-449 of the RunRunLive Podcast. No algorithm will ever be able to run a marathon, right? We set the clocks back! One less hour to get stuff done! My old man running group went out this morning for 7 miles. Frank’s coming back up to speed since having his second hip done. Tim has decided to just ignore the weird feeling in his knee. Brian is chugging al long at 2 runs a week. And I rode my bike alongside them. The knee feels better. A previous version of Chris probably would have taken it for a test drive today, but I’m going to give it another week to heal before I test it. I’m going to start easing back into things this week. With the longer days I should be able to get out on Fuji-San, my old road bike a few times and I’ll start working in some long yoga sessions for strength and stability. Then I’ll spin up the running slowly, or not. I could use a break. We’ll see. I do have an itch to get out and see some new places and maybe that means run some new races now that the pandemic seems to be waning instead of waxing. I took my Mom to get her second vaccine shot but I’m still at the back of the line. Could I claim over-training as a medical condition? I am up to 11 episodes of my new apocalypse story podcast project. I do appreciate any podcast love you can give it. I have to figure out a way I can get some more eyeballs on it. I don’t’ have the time or capital for the marketing it needs! You can search for it on your favorite pod-catcher as After the Apocalypse. Is there anyone who Doesn’t have a podcast these days? It seems like everyone just paired up to interview each other. I got a new product to test out. It’s called . The owner sent me some to try. It’s like a caffeine candy with 100mg of caffeine in each candy. I haven’t tried them yet. I do like my caffeine though. I think these might be a good kick in the ass late in a long run. The timing is poor with me not currently training, but I’ll let you know when I get to them. … I know I’ve been a bit maudlin recently. The long pandemic, the cold dark days of winter, my training not going great, my work being a pain in the butt… It all weighs in on top of a guy. But it’s not a reason to despair. It’s a reason to celebrate. We get to do these things. My life is filled with health and prosperity. I’ve got things I want to do. I’ve got things I get to do. You do too. You may feel like you’re shoveling water, but you get to choose. You could walk away. You could buy a van and sell your house. No one is stopping you. You, my friend, whether you believe it or not, are in control of your life. I always liked asking Dave MacGilvray what his favorite adventure was. Because he’ll always say “the next one.” And he’ll say it with conviction. I’ve got a lot of things I want to do. And I’m doing them. You’ve got a lot of things you want to do? You should just start doing them. As a crunchy old New Englander said: The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep And I’ll see you out there.
