Pushing the Limits of Justice: Read, View & Discuss Science

December 7 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

The Round House by Louise Erdrich

Our Pushing the Limits Series is a free, reading, viewing and discussion series co-hosted by your librarian and a “science advocate”. Our series is designed to encourage adults in our community to see the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) that is all around them and part of their everyday lives.

Our December program focuses on social science and the open-ended theme of “Justice”. Our guest presenter is Tom Maulson, former LDF Tribal Judge.

This public program engages our community in a discussion about the Indian Country criminal justice system and finding healing after injustice. With an emphasis on proper healing to demonstrate the unfairness of reality and the strength of true family, we will explore how individuals seek out ways to push the limits of justice.

Participants will explore the theme through the discussion of the book. Even if people haven’t read the book beforehand, there will be a summary of it.  A short video will also be viewed.  Vilas County Lake Conservation Specialist, Quita Sheehan, will facilitate the science end of things with the science topic focusing on heritage.

We have free copies of the book to give to the first eight (8) registered participants.  If you are not much of a reader, you are still welcome to attend. All the programs are free, but pre-registration is required. The registration deadline is one week before the event.  Additional copies are available for check out and available in a variety of formats, including audio, digital and print copies. Space is limited and going fast, so don’t wait too long. For more information, contact the library at 479-8070.

*Pushing the Limits is a reading, viewing, and discussion program for adults in communities served by rural libraries, made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
