The Future Remembered
Becker & Stein:
The Future Remembered
Thurs, Apr. 12, 7:30 PM

Officially named Century 21 Exposition, the fair drew 10 million visitors and even made a little money - remarkable success for an event staged in a little-known, geographically isolated city. But behind the commerce and entertainment was a larger vision. The civic leaders, businessmen, and publicists who made the fair a success were determined that when the lights went out and the tourists went home Seattle would be left with much-needed civic center. In the half-century since the fair, Seattle Center has become the artistic and cultural hub of the region - the remarkable legacy of a fondly remembered six months of fun long ago.

Corning - The Fair Society
Peter Corning: The Fair Society
Sun., Apr. 15, 3 PM

We've been told, again and again, that life is unfair. But what if we're wrong simply to resign ourselves to this situation? What if we have the power-and more, the duty-to change society for the better?

We do. And our very nature inclines us to do so. That's the provocative argument Corning makes in The Fair Society: The Science of Human Nature and the Pursuit of Social Justice. Drawing on the evidence from our evolutionary history and the emergent science of human nature, Corning shows that we have an innate sense of fairness. While these impulses can easily be subverted by greed and demagoguery, they can also be harnessed for good. Corning proposes a sweeping set of economic and political reforms based on three principles of fairness-equality, equity, and reciprocity-that together could transform our society and our world.

BooksBook Group Night

Breaking Through ConcreteHanson & Hanson: Breaking Through Concrete
Sun., Apr. 22, 3 PM

Celebrate Earth Day with a book that celebrates our connection with the soil!

People have always grown food in urban spaces-on windowsills and sidewalks, and in backyards and neighborhood parks-but today, urban farmers are leading an environmental and social movement that transforms our national food system. To explore this agricultural renaissance, brothers David and Michael Hanson and urban farmer Edwin Marty document twelve successful urban farm programs, from an alternative school for girls in Detroit, to a backyard food swap in New Orleans, to a restaurant supply garden on a rooftop in Brooklyn. A Seattle garden is featured also. Each beautifully illustrated essay offers practical advice for budding farmers, such as composting and keeping livestock in the city, decontaminating toxic soil, even changing zoning laws. Bainbridge farmers will enjoy this volume!

World Book Night 2012
Celebrate World Book Night
Mon., Apr. 23, 5 PM

Come learn more about this effort to bring books -- for free -- to thousands of people around the United States, including here on Bainbridge Island and North Kitsap. And get ready to sign up for next year!

Most changes have come to people who live in cities and towns: the growth of a market economy, the influence of the West in music, art, food and fashion, the emergence of a middle class and the freedom to exchange ideas. However, old ways still exist, mainly in the countryside where people's lives remain untouched by the changes or they prefer to ignore them.
