AUTHORS

Peter Heller: Celine, A Novel – October 25

In “Celine” by best-selling author Peter Heller, the elegant, aristocratic private eye has made a career of tracking down missing persons, and she has a better record at it than the FBI. When a young woman, Gabriela, asks for her help, a world of mystery and sorrow opens up. Combining the exquisite plotting and gorgeous evocation of nature that have become his hallmark, with a wildly engrossing story of family, privilege, and childhood loss, Peter Heller gives us his finest work to date. Join Heller as he reveals more from his newest novel. Wednesday, October 25. 7:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.

MUSIC

Don Alder – October 29

As described by Guitar Player magazine, Don Alder’s “visceral approach” to the acoustic guitar “is visually striking.” His music is a unique combination of deeply textured melody and story. Lyrical and compelling, his original songs are notes of exploration–some passionate and haunting, some hard-driven, others light and teasing. Watch guitar virtuoso Don Alder here. Sunday, October 29. 7:30 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.

FILM

Aatsinki: The Story of Arctic Cowboys – November 3

Brothers Aarne and Lasse Aatsinki are cowboys of the Arctic – quiet but good natured, dare-devilish but humble, rugged but gentle. These men are what John Wayne wanted to be. The brothers, along with their wives and children, live well north of the Arctic Circle in Finnish Lapland, where they are the leaders of a collective of reindeer herders who manage the last group of wild reindeer in all of Finland. “Aatsinki” follows the family for the span of one year, quietly observing their seasonal routines and the difficulties and joys of a life so closely tied to the land. Watch the official trailer here. Filmmaker and director Jessica Oreck will lead a post-screening discussion. Friday, November 3. 7:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.

TALKS

Little Roman Farm: From Swords to Plowshares – November 13

After deployments as logisticians in Iraq and Afghanistan, Ben and Leticia Ward retired from the U.S. Army and applied their military training and experiences to their agricultural aspirations and created the Little Roman Farm, a small-scale intensive urban farm located within the city of Fountain, Colorado. The pair adopted organic growing practices they learned during their overseas tours, eschewing all pesticides and artificial fertilizers in favor of sustainable, healthy and nature-friendly techniques. Ranging from work ethic to an ability to navigate bureaucracies, the pair leverage their Army background to the farm’s benefit and vice-versa, the farming benefits them as Army Reservists, proving that swords and plowshares needn’t be mutually exclusive. Read more about these Colorado veterans here. Monday, November 13. 7:00 PM. Chautauqua Community House. Buy tickets online.
