    Virtual Author Talk with Judith Carpenter

    Judith Carpenter

    The Uninvited Goddess: Awakening to a New Era offers Rockland author Judith Carpenter’s personal stories of struggling and awakening as an invitation and encouragement for readers to consider their own. She felt called through a dream to write the book, then felt driven to complete it by late 2019, not knowing how prescient a resource it might prove to be in 2020. The coronavirus pandemic has launched us all into a “new era,“ and we are “awakening” to critical, global realities on an almost daily basis. Judith is excited to talk with you about the “uninvited goddess” and what she might signify for us and for our times. She will offer some readings from her book, as well as the opportunity for questions and discussion.

    Virtual Health and Wellness Talk with Hester Kohl: Am I Hungry?

    Rockland Public Library is pleased to welcome back National Board-Certified Health & Wellness coach Hester Kohl for an informative and helpful workshop on healthy eating. How do you tell if you’re truly hungry or if something just looks good? In this virtual workshop, you’ll learn about the symptoms of true hunger and when is the best time to eat. You’ll also discover the symptoms of “head hunger”, a variety of physical, environmental, and emotional triggers that make us want to eat even if we’re not hungry. Participants will leave this workshop with tools to help them identify their personal triggers and uncover what they are really craving!

    Rockland Public Library is one in a cohort of organizations and individuals throughout the state hosting a Maine Humanities Council Discussion Project this summer. The Discussion Project is a new, flexible text-based discussion program that meets the needs of Maine communities, whether working independently or as part of an organization. Working closely with Maine Humanities Council staff, communities bring their Discussion Project to life, using an MHC-prepared plan or creating their own.

    The MHC discussions hosted by Rockland Public Library will celebrate Maine’s bicentennial with a wonderful list of readings related to the following themes: Many Maines, Wabanaki Voices, and Race & Ethnicity.

    RPL’s Discussion Project begins at 3pm on Wednesday, July 22nd on Zoom and continues for three sessions, through September 23rd.

    Virtual Concert with Davis Duo

    Josie and Sophie Davis will perform a virtual violin concert for Rockland Public Library, featuring a range of styles including classical, jazz and folk, on Thursday, July 23rd at 2pm. The Davis sisters grew up in Waldoboro and have recently returned to Maine where they are committed to teaching and performing music throughout the Midcoast area, both as a duo and as members of Halcyon, a Maine-based string quartet dedicated to cultivating an appreciation and awareness of the natural world and climate change. In 2017, Sophie Davis was awarded a Fulbright U.S. Student Research Grant to spend nine months in Samoa, where she explored the ways in which the arts can raise awareness of climate change. In addition to pursuing research, Sophie taught and performed with the National Orchestra of Samoa. Josie Davis has studied at the Juilliard String Quartet Seminar, Bowdoin International Music Festival and Kneisel Hall Chamber Music Festival. She is committed to creating more chamber music opportunities for young people and is the founder and director of summer workshops for young people in Maine and Connecticut. The concert will be presented via the Zoom platform.
