TaraShea Nesbit: The Wives of Los Alamos
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2014, 07:30 PM
Chautauqua Community House
$10.00 ($7.00 Member)
Buy Tickets Online

“The Wives of Los Alamos” is a novel that sheds light onto one of the strangest and most monumental research projects in modern history. It's a testament to a remarkable group of women who carved out a life for themselves, in spite of the chaos of the war and the shroud of intense secrecy.Read more here.

The novel, Nesbit’s first, was published this year with great notoriety and some controversy, not because of the fascinating subject matter but because of her choice of narrative voice: first-person plural. The book was selected as Amazon.com’s best book of the month in February of 2014, an Indies Next Pick, and Indies Debut Novel Selection and a Barnes & Noble Discover New Writers Pick. Ms. Nesbit will read from and discuss writing “The Wives of Los Alamos.”

This year’s space series begins with the search for life in the solar system.

If life can survive and even thrive in extremely acidic waters near boiling point within Earth’s most extreme environments, then this may also be true elsewhere in the universe. Dr. Brian Hynek will explain how Mars and Jupiter’s moon Europa had many environments similar to Earth in the past that could have hosted similar types of life. Dr. Hynek will also give an introduction to the field of Astrobiology pondering life everywhere out there and all the places we might look.

The 10th
a staged play reading

$25.00 ($22.00 Member)
Buy Tickets Online

A two act play produced and premièred in Breckenridge March 2014, "The 10th" follows two recruits who join the 85th Regiment at Camp Hale in the Pando Valley for the purpose of becoming alpine soldiers. Thrown into a battalion already reeling from a disastrous mission in the Aleutian Islands, the new recruits must deal with a splintered division populated by an overly-educated army force of Dartmouth and Harvard graduates, oversize egos, cantankerous mule skinners, and the looming six week mission in the dead of winter known as "D Series."
Fortitude, faith and fighting spirit combine to create a brotherhood of soldiers never seen before - or since.

Written and directed by Christopher Willard for the Breckenridge Backstage Theatre, "The 10th" is Part One of a three-play "ski cycle," telling the story of the ski industry in the Breckenridge area and focusing on the men who were instrumental in bringing recreational skiing to the region - the soldiers of the 10th Mountain Division. Some adult language.

David Haskell: The Forest Unseen
A biologist reveals the secret world hidden in a single square meter of forest
MONDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2014, 07:00 PM
Chautauqua Community House
$12.00 ($9.00 Member)
Buy Tickets Online

Written with remarkable grace and empathy, the award-winning "The Forest Unseen" is a grand tour of nature in all its profundity.

Biologist David George Haskell uses a one-square-meter patch of old-growth Tennessee forest as a window onto the entire natural world. Visiting it almost daily for one year to trace nature's path through the seasons, he brings the forest and its inhabitants to vivid life. Beginning with simple observations--a salamander scuttling across the leaf litter, the first blossom of spring wildflowers—Haskell spins a brilliant web of biology, ecology, and poetry, explaining the science binding together ecosystems that have cycled for thousands, sometimes millions, of years.

Haskell's research is supported by the National Science Foundation, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Fish and Wildlife Service, the World Wildlife Fund and the Templeton Foundation.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2014, 07:00 PM

$12.00 ($9.00 Chautauqua Concert Member), $7.00 high school students

Bring your teens and join Paolo Bacigalupi for the release of his newest Young Reader novel "The Doubt Factory." In this page-turning contemporary thriller, Mr. Bacigalupi, a National Book Award Finalist, Printz Award Winner and New York Times bestselling author, explores the timely issue of how public information is distorted for monetary gain, and how those who exploit it must be stopped.

In "The Doubt Factory," everything Alix knows about her life is a lie. At least that's what a mysterious young man who's stalking her keeps saying. But then she begins investigating the disturbing claims he makes against her father. Could her dad really be at the helm of a firm that distorts the truth and covers up wrongdoing by hugely profitable corporations that have allowed innocent victims to die? Is it possible that her father is the bad guy, and that the undeniably alluring criminal who calls himself Moses—and his radical band of teen activists—is right?


Mr. Bacigalupi will read from and talk about writing young reader books, answer questions and sign his books. Read more here...
