Visiting Professor: Ellen Green on Industrial Archaeology in London

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Hammond Room

What can digging up an old mill tell us about the evolution of a London suburb? After the Renaissance, England underwent dramatic changes; it was torn apart by civil war and the industrial revolution created a paradigm shift which can still be seen today. These changes left evidence in the archaeological record, and even something as small as a single mill complex in what was then the outskirts of London tells a story of dynamic evolution. Ellen Green, a field archaeologist for Pre-Construct Archaeology, returns to discuss recent excavations in Tottenham, London, and how we can build a picture of a rapidly changing country from the ruins left behind. Sponsored by the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library.

Big Books: 100 Years of Solitude

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Hammond Room

Often appearing on “greatest novel” lists, One Hundred Years of Solitude plays out in the mythical town of Macondo in Colombia, during a stormy period in Latin American history. The saga circles around seven generations of the Buendía family who inhabit the colorful, violent, and often mysterious period from the 1820s to 1920s, the century in which Macondo is built by the Buendía patriarch and ultimately destroyed by a hurricane. A desire for solitude versus a need for love is a key conflict animating this masterpiece of magical realism.

The discussion leader for this five-week Big Books class is Holly Marihugh, a professional discussion leader who has guided library patrons through Bleak House and War and Peace. Registration is required. Glencoe residents will get priority if the class fills up. Registration will open September 1; visit the library’s website or call to register. Sponsored by the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library.

What If? How Glencoe Might Have Looked

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Forte Reference Room

A Sesquicentennial Special Presentation

Glencoe would be quite a different place if some little-known proposed projects had been built. In this “alternative history” program, award-winning preservation architect and longtime Glencoe resident Scott Javore will discuss what might have been. From the downtown plans designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and George Maher to the park proposals of Jens Jensen and more, Mr. Javore will explore plans that never made it off the drawing board. He’ll discuss individual designs that would have changed the look and layout of Glencoe as we know it, why they were rejected, and how they might have otherwise influenced the architecture of the town today. Cosponsored with the Glencoe Historical Society.
