Sprague, Lindsay (Lynn) Dig - In Gardening Life Skills- Food,
Nature- Gardening,
Science
During the program, the presenter will help patrons plant their own square foot garden, using heirloom seeds. A 4x4 square area can be tilled on library grounds with permission prior to the program for a garden site, or an alternative will be to use a box demo garden to inspire patrons of all ages to be aware of where their food comes from and to eat local. I will also talk about heirloom seeds and seed saving, do it yourself vertical hydroponics, and environmental conservation. Some libraries are hosting a community seed swap after the program to increase plant diversity and availability of great food for all. I think this is an AWESOME idea! This program is suitable for the 2017 summer reading program.

How do magic tricks fool us? Where does our thinking go astray? If we can be fooled by the illusions of a stage magician, how do we know we aren't being fooled by other illusions as well? Among the core science concepts explored in this eye-opening program--which combines baffling magic with audience brainstorming--are those related to developing skepticism, forming hypothesis, questioning appearances, testing explanations, and distinguishing between a scientific and non-scientific world view. Allan Zola Kronzek is a writer, magician, and longtime teaching artist. He is the author of the NY Times bestseller The Sorcerer's Companion-A Guide to the Magical World of Harry Potter, and the highly-acclaimed A Book of Magic for Young Magicians - The Secrets of Alkazar.
