Oregon Humanities presents a Community Discussion:
“Why DIY? Self Sufficiency and the American Life”

September 25, 6:00 to 7:30 pm

Join your neighbors and friends for an interesting discussion topic sponsored and presented by Oregon Humanities   as part of their statewide Conversations project.

Are we as self-sufficient as we could be?

As we should be?

What are the pleasures and pitfalls of doing it yourself.

We will investigate why we strive to be makers and does in a world that provides more conveniences than ever.  Hmmmmm…..

This is the focus of “Why DIY? Self-Sufficiency and American Life,”a free conversation with Jennifer Burns Bright on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at 6:00 . This program is hosted by the Tillamook County Library and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.

Moderator Jennifer Burns Bright is a food educator and travel writer based in Port Orford, Oregon. She moved to the coast after many years teaching literature at the University of Oregon, where she researched modernism and desire, led a faculty research group in the emerging discipline of food studies, and won a national pedagogy award for a team-taught, interdisciplinary class on bread. She holds a PhD from the University of California at Irvine and a Master Food Preserver certification from OSU Extension. When she’s not out gathering seaweed or fermenting fruit, she might be found interviewing young farmers, old pirates, and mad scientists.

Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state’s future.

Mookulele is back on Sept. 8 starting at 12:30 pm

The Mookele program came about through a generous private donation of 20 ukuleles to the Tillamook County Library.   So, if you don’t have a uke of your own but would like to get into the spirit of this fun music, please join us at the Library on Sept. 8 at 12:30.

The uke is an easy instrument to learn and we can have you playing in about an hour!  After some basic instruction, and before you know it, you’ll be strumming and singing along with some easy-to-play tunes.

No ukulele experience?
No worries!
No experience needed to join in these fun, musical afternoons.
