This month we are reading “The Remains of the Day” by Kazuo Ishiguro The Remains of the Day is a 1989 novel by Nobel Prize-winning British writer Kazuo Ishiguro. “In the summer of 1956, Stevens, a long-serving butler at Darlington Hall, decides to take a motoring trip through the West Country. The six-day excursion becomes a journey into the past of Stevens and England, a past that takes in fascism, two world wars, and an unrealized love between the butler and his housekeeper.” (Goodreads) Groton Library Book Group WINTER Schedule Wednesday, January 31@ 3:00pm • • • • • • 93 South Main Street Northfield, VT 05663 802-485-4621 Save the Date: Join us for an author talk with Northfield resident, Carol Noyes.

Book Launch and Pop-Up Exhibit for “The Design-Build Studio: Crafting Meaningful Work in Architectural Education” • • • • • • • • • Norwich University will celebrate “The Design-Build Studio: Crafting Meaningful Work in Architectural Education,” a new book edited by Assistant Professor of Architecture Tolya Stonorov, with a reception on Wednesday, Jan. 31, at 4 p.m. at the Sullivan Museum and History Center Rotunda. Refreshments will be served. The public is invited to this free event which includes a pop-up exhibit of Stonorov’s original drawings from the book. Other Norwich book contributors, Associate Professor Danny Sagan, Dean of the College of Professional Schools Aron Temkin, Adjunct Professor Steve Kredell and alumnus Dan Wheeler, 2015, will be on hand to sign books and discuss their contributions. “The Design-Build Studio” examines 16 international community driven design-build case studies through process and product, with chapters on community involvement, digital and handcraft methodologies and a graphic Time Map. As a field guide to current trends in academic design-build studios, including Norwich University’s School of Architecture + Art, the work offers a look into the different design-build processes and methodologies and how they can be used to transform communities. Design-build supports the idea that building, making and designing are intrinsic to each other: knowledge of one strengthens and informs the expression of the other. Hands-on learning through the act of building what you design translates theories and ideas into real world experience. The work chronicled in this book reveals how this type of applied knowledge grounds us in the physicality of the world in which we live. “The pedagogies and methodologies exhibited in ‘The Design-Build Studio’ embody the ethos of architecture education at Norwich, which is rooted in doing, but also in doing with purpose,” Stonorov said. The book has received great praise since its recent publication. Bryan Bell, Executive Director of Design Corps notes: “The Design-Build Studio is a deep dive into the methods and lessons of the important educational tool known as designbuild. The content provides a thorough presentation of the state of the art, and allows the reader to compare and contrast the thinking and making of thirty of the outstanding leaders in the field. This book presents a learning opportunity that will allow us all to better define what works well, and move further forward in the evolution of this inclusive, pluralistic, and transformative teaching method.” Clifford Curry, FAIA & Co-Founder of the Curry Stone Design Prize notes: “Stonorov advocates for a better architect - one that builds in a more complete way. The multi-faceted approach of building one’s designs with the added value of community contributions should be a required experience for every budding architect.” UVM Osher Lifelong Learning Institute Central Vermont Lecture Series Lifelong Learning Thrives in Central Vermont - New Program Series: Writing, Music, History, Politics, Psychology, and More.
