NIck Jans - A Wolf Called Romeo

Jul 22 2014 7:00 pm
Jul 22 2014 8:00 pm

No stranger to wildlife, Nick Jans had lived in Alaska for nearly thirty years. But when one evening at twilight a lone black wolf ambled into view not far from his doorstep, Nick would finally come to know this mystical species--up close as never before. This is the remarkable true story of a six-year friendship between a wild, oddly gentle black wolf and the people and dogs of Juneau, Alaska.

@Ravenna - Could You Be Startin' From Somewhere Else? by Michael Shurgot

Could You be Startin' From Somewhere Else? Sketches from Buffalo and Beyond

Wednesday, July 23rd at 7pm


A kaleidoscopic mixture of memory and history, Shurgot explores his early years growing up in a middle-class, multi-ethnic neighborhood in Buffalo, NY from the late 1940s to the early 1960s to find the roots of his adult life. The book evokes an era and a culture in post World War II America that, while vastly different from our own, is, as the author shows, worthy of remembrance.  

These "sketches" evoke fond memories of the author's childhood: an exuberant, witty Irish mother; a reserved, quiet Ukrainian father; often turbulent relations between siblings and parents in an era of prescribed parenting roles in traditional families; and the enduring love that kept this family intact during economic hardships and personal difficulties. 

Individual chapters explore the author's courageous efforts to deliver a morning paper in cold, snowy Buffalo; his humorous, valiant, yet finally pathetic efforts to follow in his father's athletic footsteps, especially as a baseball player; his early encounter and later struggles with faith and organized religion; the "cruisin'" car culture of the early 1960s; the demanding Jesuit educational system that propelled him into an academic career; and reflections on his own role as husband and parent.
