7:00 PM - 8:30 PM20 Years in the Secret Service



Description:  
20 Years in the Secret Service: 
My Life with Five Presidents

by Rufus w. Youngblood

Presenter
Rebecca Youngblood Vaughn

When shots rang out in Dallas on 11/22/63, Secret Service Agent Rufus W. Youngblood immediately lunged over the seat of the vice president's car and bravely used his body to shield Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson. Faced with the unknown, Youngblood maintained this protective position as they sped toward Parkland Hospital, following closely behind the president's limousine. Throughout the course of that fateful day, he vigilantly remained by LBJ s side to ensure his safety.
This candid memoir includes Youngblood's first-hand account of the Kennedy assassination and its aftermath, as well as highlights from his twenty-year career in the Secret Service during which he protected Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon.

      Presenter Rebecca Youngblood Vaughn, MD, is the youngest daughter of Rufus and Peggy Youngblood. She is a physician and published author. While researching her parent’s history to write their life stories, Vaughn re-discovered the veritable treasure-trove of mementos from her father's 20-year tenure as a high-profile Secret Service Agent and created a new edition of this memoir with more than one hundred photographs.
The mother of two young adults, she lives in Acworth, Georgia, with her husband of 31 years. Vaughn is a speaker who brings her father’s legacy to life by sharing his frontline point-of-view of some of the most pivotal moments in U.S. history.

Where You'll Find Me: 
Risks, Decisions and the Last Climb of Kate Matrosova

by Ty Gagne

 
Book Discussion

On February 15, 2015, Kate Matrosova, an avid mountaineer, set off before sunrise for a traverse of the Northern Presidential Range in the White Mountains. Late the following day, rescuers carried her frozen body out of the mountains amid some of the worst weather ever recorded on these deceptively rugged slopes.

At 32, she was ultra-fit and healthy and had already summited much larger mountains on several continents. Her gear included a rescue beacon and a satellite phone. Yet, despite their best efforts, forty-two expert search and rescue personnel, a NH Army National Guard Blackhawk helicopter, and a Civil Air Patrol Cessna airplane could not reach her in time to save her.

What went wrong? Where You'll Find Me offers possible answers to that question, demonstrating why Matrosova's story - what we know and what we will never know - represents such an intriguing and informative case study in risk analysis and decision-making.

Description:  
Critical Hours:
Search and Rescue in the 
White Mountains

with
Sandy Stott

A misread map, a sudden storm, a forgotten headlamp—and suddenly a leisurely hike turns into a treacherous endeavor. In the past decade, inexpensive but sophisticated navigation devices and mobile phones have led to alarming levels of overconfidence on the trail.. Sandy Stott, the “Accidents” editor at the journal of the Appalachian Mountain Club, delivers both a history and a celebration of the search and rescue workers who save countless lives in the White Mountains—along with a plea for us not to take their steadfastness and bravery for granted. Filled with tales of astonishing courage and sobering tragedy, Critical Hours will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts and armchair adventurers alike.

Sandy's book will be available for
signing and purchase.

Description:  
Amy & Isabelle
by Elizabeth Strout

Ward’s novel took us into the Deep South and a diverse extended family. Isabelle is a single mother who lives alone with her teenage daughter, Amy, in the small New England town of Shirley Falls. Relationships between mothers and daughters are often fraught but this pair suffers from a life of dependency and social isolation. Isabelle is not prepared to cope with her daughter’s budding sexuality and the resulting tensions and strong feelings drive this masterful debut novel.
Dr. Suzanne Brown, who says that she loves the work of Elizabeth Strout, will lead this exploration of a small family living in a small town during the 1960’s...

10:30 AMFriends Book Discussion: Two-Part Invention



Description:  
Two-Part Invention: The Story of a Marriage
by Madeleine  L’Engle

Most of us have read and loved L’Engle’s Newbury Award winning children’s book, A Wrinkle in Time. Many literary critics claim that the beauty of her prose is at its peak in this memoir of her long marriage to the actor, Hugh Franklin. The writer paints a beautiful, almost spiritual portrait of a marriage as it matures through decades. In this work, we experience a “traditional” marriage and find that it is as dynamic and evolving as any other.
Writer Mary Hays returns to us to lead this just-before-Thanksgiving discussion of L’Engle’s critically acclaimed memoir. Our experience of sharing Hays’ novel Learning to Drive heightens my anticipation of what this insightful and creative writer will have to say about this revelatory story of a marriage...

20 Years in the Secret Service: 
My Life with Five Presidents

by Rufus w. Youngblood

Presenter
Rebecca Youngblood Vaughn

When shots rang out in Dallas on 11/22/63, Secret Service Agent Rufus W. Youngblood immediately lunged over the seat of the vice president's car and bravely used his body to shield Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson. Faced with the unknown, Youngblood maintained this protective position as they sped toward Parkland Hospital, following closely behind the president's limousine. Throughout the course of that fateful day, he vigilantly remained by LBJ s side to ensure his safety.
This candid memoir includes Youngblood's first-hand account of the Kennedy assassination and its aftermath, as well as highlights from his twenty-year career in the Secret Service during which he protected Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon.

      Presenter Rebecca Youngblood Vaughn, MD, is the youngest daughter of Rufus and Peggy Youngblood. She is a physician and published author. While researching her parent’s history to write their life stories, Vaughn re-discovered the veritable treasure-trove of mementos from her father's 20-year tenure as a high-profile Secret Service Agent and created a new edition of this memoir with more than one hundred photographs.
The mother of two young adults, she lives in Acworth, Georgia, with her husband of 31 years. Vaughn is a speaker who brings her father’s legacy to life by sharing his frontline point-of-view of some of the most pivotal moments in U.S. history.

Where You'll Find Me: 
Risks, Decisions and the Last Climb of Kate Matrosova

by Ty Gagne

 
Book Discussion

On February 15, 2015, Kate Matrosova, an avid mountaineer, set off before sunrise for a traverse of the Northern Presidential Range in the White Mountains. Late the following day, rescuers carried her frozen body out of the mountains amid some of the worst weather ever recorded on these deceptively rugged slopes.

At 32, she was ultra-fit and healthy and had already summited much larger mountains on several continents. Her gear included a rescue beacon and a satellite phone. Yet, despite their best efforts, forty-two expert search and rescue personnel, a NH Army National Guard Blackhawk helicopter, and a Civil Air Patrol Cessna airplane could not reach her in time to save her.

What went wrong? Where You'll Find Me offers possible answers to that question, demonstrating why Matrosova's story - what we know and what we will never know - represents such an intriguing and informative case study in risk analysis and decision-making.

Critical Hours: Search and Rescue in the White Mts
Critical Hours:
Search and Rescue in the 
White Mountains

with
Sandy Stott

A misread map, a sudden storm, a forgotten headlamp—and suddenly a leisurely hike turns into a treacherous endeavor. In the past decade, inexpensive but sophisticated navigation devices and mobile phones have led to alarming levels of overconfidence on the trail.. Sandy Stott, the “Accidents” editor at the journal of the Appalachian Mountain Club, delivers both a history and a celebration of the search and rescue workers who save countless lives in the White Mountains—along with a plea for us not to take their steadfastness and bravery for granted. Filled with tales of astonishing courage and sobering tragedy, Critical Hours will appeal to outdoor enthusiasts and armchair adventurers alike.

Sandy's book will be available for
signing and purchase.

Friends Book Discussion: Amy & Isabelle
Amy & Isabelle
by Elizabeth Strout

Ward’s novel took us into the Deep South and a diverse extended family. Isabelle is a single mother who lives alone with her teenage daughter, Amy, in the small New England town of Shirley Falls. Relationships between mothers and daughters are often fraught but this pair suffers from a life of dependency and social isolation. Isabelle is not prepared to cope with her daughter’s budding sexuality and the resulting tensions and strong feelings drive this masterful debut novel.
Dr. Suzanne Brown, who says that she loves the work of Elizabeth Strout, will lead this exploration of a small family living in a small town during the 1960’s...

Linda Matchett

Rationing began in 1942 with tires and by 1943 ration coupons were required to purchase coffee, sugar, meat, cheese, butter, lard, margarine, canned foods, dried fruits, jam, gasoline, bicycles, fuel oil, clothing, silk or nylon stockings, and shoes. The automotive and appliance industries quit producing until after the war. Find out how Americans coped during this difficult time.

Friends Book Discussion: Two-Part Invention
Two-Part Invention: The Story of a Marriage
by Madeleine  L’Engle

Most of us have read and loved L’Engle’s Newbury Award winning children’s book, A Wrinkle in Time. Many literary critics claim that the beauty of her prose is at its peak in this memoir of her long marriage to the actor, Hugh Franklin. The writer paints a beautiful, almost spiritual portrait of a marriage as it matures through decades. In this work, we experience a “traditional” marriage and find that it is as dynamic and evolving as any other.
Writer Mary Hays returns to us to lead this just-before-Thanksgiving discussion of L’Engle’s critically acclaimed memoir. Our experience of sharing Hays’ novel Learning to Drive heightens my anticipation of what this insightful and creative writer will have to say about this revelatory story of a marriage...
