“Yes We Can” became the rallying cry for women in WWII. Answering their country’s call, women rolled up their sleeves and went to work wherever they were needed. When almost all able-bodied men went off to fight on the front lines, women took their place on the home front, serving as riveters, pilots, nurses, scientists and truck drivers. This program will focus on the “Rosies” and how the women’s work influenced the course of the war, and, conversely, how the war work affected the women’s lives. It also includes film clips of interviews with many of the Rosies.

Patricia DelGiorno has made an extensive study of women’s roles in War and has participated in World Wars I and II studies at Cambridge and Oxford Universities which she lectures and gives presentations on: In 2013 she completed a Master’s Thesis entitled “Crossing Borders - Women Secret Agents of Britain’s Special Operations Executive (SOE) in WWII.

Join historian Richard Bell as he discusses the 1619 Project and tests its central claims against the evidence of the historical record. Sponsored by Friends of the Library, Rockville Memorial Chapter

By now, it seems everyone has an opinion about The 1619 Project. Published in 2019, The 1619 Project was a special edition of The New York Times’ Magazine that tried to focus readers’ attention upon the centrality of race slavery in American history. In this evening program, University of Maryland historian Richard Bell will test four of The 1619 Project’s central claims against the evidence in the historical record. We will examine whether or not the preservation of slavery was a central motivation of the American Revolution. We will explore whether or not the 1787 Constitution enshrined the right to hold ‘property in man.’ We will investigate whether or not Black Americans had significant white allies in the antebellum freedom struggle. We will also study the multi-faceted character of Abraham Lincoln’s racial politics during the Civil War. While The 1619 Project has aroused controversy, this program will focus on the facts and the evidence, leaving participants well equipped to make up their own minds. Sponsored by Friends of the Library, Rockville Memorial Chapter.

As we get older, many of us are interested in gathering stories from our lives and sharing them with our children and grandchildren. We want to try and make sense of our lives and create a record describing the events we experienced and how we dealt with struggles, setbacks, and successes. What are the lessons and values that we want to pass on? What did we find meaningful? What was important to us? What is our legacy?

This 3-part class on October 6, 13, and 20 will be taught by Chris Palmer, who has taught memoir-writing at The Writer‘s Center. His classes were very popular and got rave reviews from students.

The focus will be practical and designed to help participants make rapid progress with their memoirs. We‘ll discuss the reasons for writing a memoir, how to plan and structure it, how to collect ideas (including ones that are long forgotten), how to tell powerful and effective stories, how to deal with conflict and contention, and how to deal with sensitive issues. Open to BMAV members.

As we get older, many of us are interested in gathering stories from our lives and sharing them with our children and grandchildren. We want to try and make sense of our lives and create a record describing the events we experienced and how we dealt with struggles, setbacks, and successes. What are the lessons and values that we want to pass on? What did we find meaningful? What was important to us? What is our legacy?

This 3-part class on October 6, 13, and 20 will be taught by Chris Palmer, who has taught memoir-writing at The Writer‘s Center. His classes were very popular and got rave reviews from students.

The focus will be practical and designed to help participants make rapid progress with their memoirs. We‘ll discuss the reasons for writing a memoir, how to plan and structure it, how to collect ideas (including ones that are long forgotten), how to tell powerful and effective stories, how to deal with conflict and contention, and how to deal with sensitive issues. Open to BMAV members.

When we hear the word Nutrition, we may think of what is on the plate. When we hear the word Nourishment, we can think about what is on life’s plate.
Nutrition is certainly an important key to health, and for me, the conversation goes beyond food choices. When creating our health and wellness goals, especially as we continue to age, it is important to consider all influences that could impact our ability to adapt and shift. Life brings change, and we often need to adapt our plans accordingly. In this presentation, we will focus on four strategies that allow us to live a Nourished Life with Carla Johnston, DCN, MA, MS, CNS, LDN.

There’s been a lot of recent press coverage of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (aka UFOs). Is anyone out there? Today, almost 5,000 planets have been confirmed with more awaiting verification. And yet. . . still no signs of life! Discovering extraterrestrial life would certainly alter how we view ourselves and our place in the Universe. Beginning with a look at the only planet where we know life to exist, this presentation will examine the latest efforts and technologies dedicated to the search for life elsewhere in the Universe. Questions are most welcome but no final answer is promised!

How Fashion Survived WWII in Paris, London and New York" with Elizabeth Lay, Design Historian, Curator, and Professor at GWU.
Fashion changed very little during WWII as scarcity defined each designers’ style. Behind wide shoulders and fitted suits, the apparel industry struggled to survive. The war’s impact reached beyond the industry itself as fashion houses and the supporting crafts employed thousands of people and accounted for a significant portion of each country’s GDP. Individually the Allied design centers faced different challenges: Paris was occupied by the Nazis, London sustained relentless bombing raids, and New York was hungry for fashion which some hoped the American would supplant the French. The talk will examine the war time conditions and how each center endured and ultimately flourished through creativity, innovation, and celebration.
Elizabeth Lay is a Design Historian and the Curator at Montgomery History’s Beall Dawson House and Stonestreet Museum in Rockville. She holds a Master’s degree in the History of Decorative Arts from the Smithsonian-GMU program in Design History, specializing in 20th century textiles, fashion, and women designers. Additionally, Elizabeth Lay is an Adjunct Professor at George Washington University teaching Women Designers of the Twentieth Century and 20th Century Costume.

Craig Whitlock, Investigative Reporter with The Washington Post will discuss his reportorial triumph, "The Afghanistan Papers: A Secret History of the War." After conducting thousands of interviews and suing the government for emails and other documents under the Freedom of Information Act, his book tells the story of strategic bungling, distorted statistics, a nation-building project doomed to failure and the victory of drugs and corruption in the longest war in American history through the voices of those who knew that the US government was presenting a distorted, and sometimes entirely fabricated, version of the facts on the ground.

Just as the Pentagon Papers changed the public’s understanding of Vietnam, The Afghanistan Papers contains startling revelation after revelation from people who played a direct role in the war, from leaders in the White House and the Pentagon to soldiers and aid workers on the front lines. In unvarnished language, they admit that the US government’s strategies were a mess, that the nation-building project was a colossal failure, and that drugs and corruption gained a stranglehold over their allies in the Afghan government.

Craig Whitlock has covered the global war on terrorism since 2001. He specializes in national security issues and has covered the Pentagon, served as the Berlin bureau chief and reported from more than 60 countries. He joined The Washington Post in 1998. Craig received the George Polk Award for Military Reporting, the Scripps Howard Award for Investigative Reporting, the Investigative Reporters and Editors Freedom of Information Award and the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for international reporting.

Trivia Night is back! BMAV members join us for an hour of trivia on Zoom. Everyone comes with 3 - 4 trivia questions (and answers) they think may stump other guests. Not too hard though! There are ideas for questions online in the world of sports, history, anything that interests you. For example, What is the largest mammal in the world? Which actor played the first James Bond? Who invented the airplane?

If you can't think of questions, come anyway! Host Chris Palmer will have extra questions in his back pocket. Also bring paper to write your answers on and a drink if you'd like. We'll keep score and declare a winner for the night. It's a lot of fun
