Historian Nathaniel Philbrick on His Book "Why Read Moby-Dick?"

Host Gene Bradley interviews historian Nathaniel Philbrick about his book "Why Read Moby-Dick?" 

Moby-Dick is perhaps the greatest of the Great American Novels, yet its length and esoteric subject matter create an aura of difficulty that too often keeps readers at bay. In his National Book Award- winning bestseller, "In the Heart of the Sea," Nathaniel Philbrick unpacked the story of the wreck of the whaleship Essex, the real-life incident that inspired Melville to write Moby- Dick. Now, he sets his sights on the fiction itself, offering a cabin master’s tour of a spellbinding novel rich with adventure and history.

Loss and Grief, the Dougy Center and Grief Watch

Portland Songwriter and performer Lincoln Crockett and his wife Alicia, and Donna Schuurman, Executive Director of The Dougy Center for Grieving Children & Families.

In February 2011, Portland songwriter and performer Lincoln Crockett (www.lincolncrockett.com) and his wife Alicia lost their baby, Joseph Phoenix, shortly after childbirth. As they and their four year old son grieved they were introduced to two priceless resources: Grief Watch (www.griefwatch.com), a resource for dealing with loss, and The Dougy Center (www.dougy.org), an organization dedicated to help grieving children and families. These groups not only provide support to grieving families and children right here in Portland, but from all over the country. Both organizations provide invaluable information, knowledge and experience on how to grieve, how to heal, and how to live again after the kinds of losses and tragedies people fear most.

Lincoln Crockett and his fellow musicians present an evening of music with all proceeds going to benefit The Dougy Center and Grief Watch. The purpose of this benefit concert is twofold: to raise awareness of these fantastic, national-caliber resources right here in Portland and to support their important work. As the Crocketts shared their loss they realized that people around them are grieving, often alone, for lost babies, children, siblings, friends, parents and lives; most of them didn’t know about the help that is available from Grief Watch and The Dougy Center.

Crockett will perform the headlining set in various combinations ranging from solo and duo to the official debut of a full ‘dream band’ – Lincoln Crockett & Enemies. Their music ranges from modern indie folk to bluegrass-inspired virtuosity to a full electric band that plays a high-end fusion of rock and jazz. The evening will be opened by special guest Chris Kokesh performing with Crockett in their popular but rarely heard duo. Grief Watch and The Dougy Center representatives will be on hand to provide information about their services and organizations.

The Old Church is located at 1422 Southwest 11th Avenue in downtown Portland. Tickets are $15. Doors open at 6, show begins at 7.

Thomas Frank, author of PITY THE BILLIONAIRE

program date: 
Fri, 01/20/2012

Host Michelle Schroeder Fletcher welcomes journalist

Thomas Frank, author of Pity the Billionaire: The Hard-Times Swindle and the Unlikely Comeback of the Right.

Economic catastrophe usually spawns discontent and sweeps the old order out the door. But when Thomas Frank, the author of the New York Times bestseller What's the Matter with Kansas?, set out to look for expressions of American discontent in 2009, all he could find were loud demands that the economic system bear down harshly on the recession’s victims and that society’s traditional winners receive even grander prizes. In PITY THE BILLIONAIRE Frank tells the amazing story of how the American right, which appeared to be dying after the election of 2008, was instead reinvigorated by the arrival of hard times.

She went on a journey to search out different ways of dealing with grief and how they are expressed.

Sarah Murray's Making an Exit: From the Magnificent to the Macabre - How We Dignify the Dead, is exploration of the extraordinary creativity observed in death rituals, and the author's accounts of these journeys are poignant and personal.

LIVE UPDATES: Building New Structures on K Street

Last night, Occupy K Street-DC erected a wooden structure, a "People's Pavilion," at their main encampment in McPherson Square. According to Occupiers, the structure will be used as a warm place (designed to be heated by a novel sustainable energy source: water bottles that collect and store solar heat) for General Assemblies, teach-ins, and other community building purposes.

They have also said that the structure represents the needs of the 99% who are being left houseless by economic inequality. The People' Pavilion is a symbol of all homes stolen by banks and corporate greed, right on K Street -- in front of the Wall Street lobbyists who buy the politicians on Capitol Hill. Or, as one Occupier said: Read

UPDATES: Portland Holds New Home

Last night, Portland Police used violent force to evict Shemanski Park. Photos and live footage show police in full riot gear aggressively taking down nonviolent protesters. Among other incidents, one 15 year old was smashed in the face with a baton. Undaunted, Occupiers took to the streets, routed lines of riot police, and marched on City Hall. As revelers joined in and the protest continued to grow, the march stopped downtown for a dance party and then returned to Shemanski to defend their new home while celebrating with more dancing and pizza. Proving that our determination cannot be halted, most police had left the scene and Occupy Portland continues to hold public space as of 9am EST (6am PST). Read More...
