Poetry Salon with Claire Keyes on Suji Kwock Kim
Saturday, October 16th, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

On Saturday, October 16th, the Poetry Salon at the Abbot Public Library will continue its exploration of Asian-American poets with a discussion of the Korean-American poet Suji Kwock Kim. A playwright as well as a poet, Kim was educated at Yale, the University of Iowa, Stanford University, and UC/Berkeley. As a Fulbright Scholar, she studied at Seoul National University and Yonsei University. She is the author of the poetry collections Notes from the North (2020) and Notes from the Divided Country (2003), which won the Walt Whitman Award from the Academy of American Poets, the Bay Area Book Reviewers Award, and was a finalist for the Griffin Prize. She co-wrote Private Property, a multimedia play performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Edward Hirsch speaks of her poetry as “moving fluently between the living and the dead, the Korean past and the Amerasian present. Her heartfelt work is shadowed by the question of what is passed on through a long, blood-soaked history.” Please join Marblehead poet Claire Keyes from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm on Saturday, October 16th as we explore Kim’s poems. 

 

Continuing‌ ‌Conversations‌ ‌on‌ ‌Race:‌ ‌Increasing Our Competence in Anti-Oppression Work
Monday, October 18, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Cosponsored by the Abbot Public Library and the Marblehead Racial Justice Team
This virtual event will be hosted on Zoom – see access details below

Have you ever wondered how to respond to what seems to be a racist situation? Or how to engage in a conversation without seeming racist? One of the challenges of anti-racism and anti-oppression work is labeling people and behavior as racist and anti-racist, and the feelings of defensiveness those labels can sometimes cause. While clear and direct naming of the truth of racism and racist actions is an important and powerful tool, it can also be helpful to consider our anti-racism work as a skillset, with each of us having different levels of skills and abilities that exist on a spectrum. In this framing, like with most skills, if we spend time and effort, we can increase our skill level in our anti-racism work.

Tonight we will look at a model of intercultural sensitivity and discuss how it supports us to be more aware and thus sensitive in our relationships with others.

These ongoing conversations are a safe and welcoming place in which we explore our own privilege and biases, our questions, and continue to learn and grow by hearing each other’s stories so that we can best make a difference. It is a place for listening, conversation, and engagement.

Please join us for an invigorating conversation!

ADULT PROGRAMS

Poetry Salon with Claire Keyes on Garrett Hongo
Saturday, September 18th, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
in the Marblehead Room

On Saturday, September 18th, the Poetry Salon will resume with a discussion of the poetry of Garrett Hongo. We will meet from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm in the Abbot Library Meeting Room. The first poet in a series devoted to Asian-American poets, Garrett Hongo was born in Volcano, Hawai’i to Japanese-American parents. He grew up in Hawai’i and Los Angeles, and earned his BA from Pomona College and his MFA from the University of California-Irvine, where he studied with the poets C.K. Williams, Howard Moss, and Charles Wright. His collections of poetry include Yellow Light (1982); The River of Heaven (1988), which received the Lamont Poetry Prize and was nominated for a Pulitzer; Coral Road: Poems (2011); and The Mirror Diary (2017). His poetry explores the experiences of Asian-Americans in Anglo society, using lush imagery, narrative techniques, and myth to address both cultural alienation and the trials of immigrants, including the forced internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, as well as the anti-Japanese sentiment today. Claire Keyes, Professor Emerita from Salem State University, will lead the discussion.

 

Continuing‌ ‌Conversations‌ ‌on‌ ‌Race:‌ ‌The‌ ‌Color‌ ‌of‌ ‌Law‌ ‌
Monday, September 20th, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Cosponsored by the Abbot Public Library and the Marblehead Racial Justice Team
This virtual event will be hosted on Zoom – see access details below

Abbot Public Library and the Marblehead Racial Justice Team are presenting “Continuing Conversations on Race” on Zoom on Monday, September 20th at 7:00 pm.

Access the Zoom event at 7:00 pm on Monday, June 21st by visiting this link or by dialing +1-929-205-6099 from the New York Time Zone (if you’re in a different time zone, find out what number to call here) and entering the following Meeting ID: 463 613 7679.

Join us as we watch the video “Segregated By Design” that examines the forgotten history of how our federal, state, and local governments unconstitutionally segregated every major metropolitan area in America through law and policy.

The video is based on The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein, which is available in ebook format on Overdrive, in e-audiobook format on Overdrive or hoopla, or you can reserve a print copy on your library account.

“Rothstein persuasively debunks many contemporary myths about racial discrimination… Only when Americans learn a common―and accurate―history of our nation’s racial divisions, he contends, will we then be able to consider steps to fulfill our legal and moral obligations. For the rest of us, still trying to work past 40 years of misinformation, there might not be a better place to start than Rothstein’s book.”― Rachel M. Cohen, Slate

After viewing “Segregated By Design” we will discuss the impact of the laws and policies on the history of Marblehead, even to today.
