Portland Think & Drink

Food in a Networked World

We’ve all had deep discussions with our friends while we’re out at night—why not add a couple of experts to the mix and really take it up a notch? That’s the idea behind Think & Drink, a happy-hour series in partnership with SPACE Gallery in Portland that sparks provocative conversations about big ideas. The series invites you to participate in a facilitated public conversation with two panelists who have expertise in the subject at hand. The idea isn’t to create consensus but, rather, to foster an open interplay of viewpoints and perspectives. The sessions are free and do not require registration.

Location and Time: SPACE Gallery, Portland, 6:00-7:30 pm

Taste of the Humanities

French Acadian Foodways: Ployes and Soupe au Navet at the Cultural Crossroads of Maine’s St. John Valley

The Franco tradition in Maine is richly complex, particularly in northern Aroostook County where settlers from Acadia and New France took refuge when those place names were erased from the map. Professor Raymond Pelletier (Emeritus, Canadian-American Center, University of Maine) will present French Acadian Foodways, a multisensory, interactive discussion of cultural traditions that transcend the U.S./Canadian border to Maine and New England. The presentation promises to provide a glimpse into the sights, sounds, and tastes of the cross-border traditions that have been maintained. Tastings of traditional Acadian foods will be provided. Free event with online registration.

Teach Me Now to Listen: A Retrospective of Seamus Heaney

Seamus Heaney’s death last year was a blow to poets and literature lovers alike. Professor John Ward (Centre and Kenyon Colleges), as well as many others, believes that Heaney’s work deserves to be kept in the present. In this retrospective on the poet and his work, Professor Ward explores Heaney’s ranging subjects and styles—from personal and familial to political and cultural. First held in Portland last January, Teach Me Now to Listen will be at Tenants Harbor at the Jackson Memorial Library on April 9 thanks to great demand. Free event with online registration.

Everyone’s Town: Thornton Wilder’s Legacy

Although Our Town, which turned 75 in 2013, was set in a small New Hampshire village and written in 1938, its universality has made it a favorite of theater companies and schools for decades. Wilder biographer Penelope Niven joins us to share the story of his life (and his Maine ancestry), how Wilder came to write the play, and the special appeal of its themes of the passage of time and small-town life. This event is free and open to the public.
Penelope Niven’s 2012 biography of Wilder (Thornton Wilder: A Life, Harper), was deemed “the best kind of literary biography” by the Washington Post. Niven is also the acclaimed author of Carl Sandburg: A Biography and Steichen: A Biography. She has been awarded two honorary doctorates, four fellowships, and is the recipient of the North Carolina Award in Literature.

Presented in partnership with the Baxter Society and Maine Historical Society.

Location and Time: Maine Historical Society, 489 Congress St. Portland. 7:00 p.m.
