Sprague, Lindsay (Lynn) Biophere Projects! Growing Food on Mars and Beyond! Life Skills- Food,
Nature- Gardening,
Science
In the late 1980's, scientists began hypothesizing about growing food in space in preparation for the international space station and colonizing other planets. Biospheres were built and humans volunteered to live in them for 1-3 years at a time to mimic missions to other planets. Scientists studied nutrient requirements of plants, interpersonal relationships between participants, and environmental controls within these closed systems to explore scenarios astronauts might face when colonizing new planets. In this program, the library will build and host its own biosphere so students can learn about these closed systems in real time, and conduct experiments as if they were in space. Please email me with Programs in the subject line with any questions and to be added to my live booking link and visual catalog. This program is suitable for the 2019 Summer Reading theme.

Sommerstad, Patricia In the Footsteps of Ruth Life Skills- Food,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Come with me on a unique adventure that's part of New York City's culinary history! Ruth Reichl was the NY Times food critic from 1993-1999, famous for her “populist” reviews of restaurants that everyone could enjoy and afford. Previous Times reviewers had focused on the stuffy, expensive high-end restaurants, but Ruth changed all that! Of the almost 400 restaurants that she reviewed, over 75 are still in business almost twenty years later! In this workshop, with foreknowledge of her (often very funny) reviews, we will walk in Ruth's footsteps to “visit” seven of them. We'll examine what has changed and what remains the same. Then we'll explore the neighborhoods of each, visiting familiar landmarks and discovering off-the-beaten-path attractions, such as rooftop bars and unusual museums, special interest tours and more. You will leave with seven all-day itineraries, seven Ruth Reichl restaurant reviews, and most likely, several prizes! 1 ½ hours. 21 prizes. Handouts
