Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Matthew Desmond
From Matthew Desmond, a Harvard sociologist and MacArthur "Genius" fellow, comes a landmark work of scholarship and reportage that will forever change the way we look at poverty in America. EVICTED: Poverty and Profit in the American City is a brilliant, heartbreaking book. Desmond takes us into the poorest neighborhoods of Milwaukee to tell the story of eight families on the edge. He moved into a trailer park and then to a rooming house and diligently took notes on the lives of people who pay 70 to 80 percent of their incomes for homes that, objectively speaking, are unfit for human habitation.

Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Jane Mayer
Jane Mayer's groundbreaking book on political money and influence, Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right, has topped the New York Times' best-seller list. The New York Review of Books calls it "absolutely necessary reading for anyone who wants to make sense of our politics. Mayer is telling the epic story of America in our time. It is a triumph of investigative reporting, perhaps not surprising for a journalist who has won most of the awards her profession has to offer." A New Yorker writer for over 20 years, her book Dark Money is essential reading in understanding politics today. Mayer's previous book, The Dark Side: The Inside Story of How the War on Terror Turned Into a War on American Ideals, was also a New York Times bestseller.

Martha's Vineyard Author Series: Margo Jefferson
Growing up in the 1950s, Margo Jefferson was part of Chicago's black upper class. The daughter of a prominent doctor and his socialite wife, Jefferson inhabited a world of ambition, education and sophistication, a place she calls "Negroland." In her award winning memoir, Jefferson describes the social pressures of her upbringing, as well as the sense of separation that it engendered. Her passionate memoir complicates the already fraught picture of the civil rights era, describing the painful and frustrating circumstances of an overlooked sector of American society. Now a professor of writing at Columbia University School of the Arts, Jefferson won a Pulitzer for criticism during her years as a book and theater critic at The New York Times and associate editor at Newsweek. The author of On Michael Jackson, Jefferson in her second book turns her sharp eye on her own upbringing.

Farm. Field. Sea.: Wampanoag Heritage
Food--its capture, cultivation, preparation, and consumption--represents a cultural act. As we explore the multi-cultural tables of Martha's Vineyard, come behind the scenes with members of the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah) to explore their roots through stories, tradition and trails. Our guide will be tribal member Juli Vanderhoop, who builds community via her outdoor wood-fired bread oven at Orange Peel Bakery in Aquinnah. Summertime pizza nights bring Vineyarders and visitors from across the island together to share a slice every week. A storyteller in her own right, Juli travelled the world as a commercial pilot and teacher before she returned home to the rolling moors of Aquinnah to open the bakery. Now, she works to pass on the traditions of the past to the next generation. Adventure Includes: a personal tour of the Gay Head Cliffs, meeting wampum artists, storytellers, Tribal educators and experiencing local tastings and a picnic dinner at Orange Peel Bakery. photo courtesy of wsj.com Sponsors: Farm.Field.Sea.
