03/03/2020 -  Talk About Series: Venezuela - What Does It Mean To Live in a Failed State?
The San Diego Diplomacy Council and the Worldview Project cordially invites you to a Talk-About Event featuring Dr. Patricia Márquez, Dean of the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace studies at University of San Diego, on Tuesday, March 3 at the Coronado Public Library at 6:30 PM.

The oil-rich Venezuela is a country in crisis with high levels of chaos, anarchy, poverty and violence. Not that long ago it was hard to imagine a Venezuela defined by extreme corruption, the collapse of all basic services and institutions, massive migration, hyperinflation, and significant political repression.

Dr. Márquez will discuss how Venezuela moved so rapidly from being a budding economy with tremendous oil wealth to a bankrupt society in desperate need of humanitarian aid. Through stories of everyday life, listeners will gain a vibrant picture of economic, political and social aspects essential for understanding the complex dimensions of the Venezuelan crisis. This event is co-hosted with The Worldview Project.

Dr. Márquez joined the USD School of Business in 2007 and has since developed the Center for Peace and Commerce (CPC), the Social Innovation Challenge and the USD Changemaker Hub. Her research has focused on the intersection of business and social value creation, with an emphasis on poverty alleviation through market mechanisms. Previous to joining USD, Dr. Márquez was a professor and dean at IESA, a School of Business in Caracas, Venezuela. In 2016, Dr. Márquez received the San Diego Business Journal Women Who Mean Business Award. In 2017 she received the San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary Club Peacemaker of the Year Award and in 2018 the Rotary, District 5340 Pathways to Peace Award and Paul Harris Fellowship.

02/20/2020 - Talk: Deirdre Bair
National Book Award-winning biographer Deirdre Bair explores her 15 remarkable years in Paris with Samuel Beckett and Simone de Beauvoir, painting intimate new portraits of two literary giants and revealing secrets of the biographical art in her new book, Parisian Lives. In 1971 Bair was a journalist and recently minted Ph.D. who managed to secure access to Nobel Prize-winning author Samuel Beckett. The next seven years of intimate conversations, intercontinental research, and peculiar cat-and-mouse games resulted in Samuel Beckett: A Biography and propelled Bair to her next subject: Simone de Beauvoir. The catch? De Beauvoir and Beckett despised each other. Her seven-year relationship with the domineering and difficult de Beauvoir required a radical change in approach, yielding another groundbreaking literary profile. At ArtPower, Bair will speak about Parisian Lives-including never-before-told anecdotes and details that were considered impossible to publish back in the 1990s and that give audiences a new window on the all-too-human side of these legendary thinkers.

02/04/2020 - Teen Book Club: Akata Witch
Teens, come by the library and join us in discussing the book, Akata Witch by Nnedi Okorafor.

Twelve-year-old Sunny lives in Nigeria, but she was born American. Her features are African, but she has albinism. She's a terrific athlete, but can't go out into the sun to play soccer.

There seems to be no place where she fits in. And then she discovers something amazing-she is a "free agent" with latent mystical power.

Soon she's part of a quartet of students, studying the visible and invisible, learning to change reality. But will it be enough to help them when they are asked to catch a career criminal well-versed in powerful juju?

02/08/2020 - Book Signing: Shrouded Heritage - Island of the Blue Dolphins
Ten years ago, Thomas Holm read Scott O’Dell’s novel Island of the Blue Dolphins with his fourth-grade daughter.

That experience led to him to research California’s indigenous mariners, including the “Nicoleno” of San Nicolas Island, which is the real setting of O’Dell’s book. That ten year journey, from elementary school field trip, to claims of improprieties, to the enactment of new preservation laws, will be addressed by Holm as he presents his new book entitled, Shrouded Heritage: Island of the Blue Dolphins.
