According to the official website (www.books2eat.com), “This festival is a celebration of the ingestion of culture and a way to concretely share a book; it is also a deeper reflection on our attachment to food and our cultural differences.” What's an edible book? It's up to your interpretation! It could be a cake shaped like a book, food that was described/consumed within a book, a pun on a book's title, or anything else you can come up with! Schedule of events: 4:30 - 4:45: Books on display only. 4:45 - 5:30: Edible book tasting (Vote for your favorite for the Most Popular Votes prize by 5pm!) 5:15: Prizewinning edible books will be announced. Prizes will be awarded for the following categories: 1) Grand Prize (based on overall taste, presentation and creativity) 2) Most Creative Literary Interpretation 3) Best Tasting 4) Most Sustainable 5) Most Popular Vote Rules for those submitting edible books: 1) Register on myChatham to submit an edible book. 2) All edible book entries must be "bookish" through the integration of text, literary inspiration or, quite simply, the form. 3) Your “books” will be consumed, so please list all ingredients for those with food allergies. Also, if you’re attempting to win the “Most Sustainable” prize, be sure to list all sustainable elements, such as local, organic, fair trade, net zero energy use, or recycled. 4) Please bring a serving utensil for your dish. 5) All books must be dropped off in the library lobby between 3:30pm and 4:15 on Wednesday, March 29th. 6) If at all possible, please include a separate sample of your book for judge taste testing (approx. 4 judges).

Senator Barbara Mikulski will speak in the Campbell Memorial Chapel about her career as the longest serving Congresswoman in U.S. history. Senator Barbara Mikulski Biography: The people of Maryland elected Senator Barbara A. Mikulski to be their U.S. Senator because she’s a fighter – looking out for the day–to–day needs of Marylanders and the long–range needs of the nation. Determined to make a difference in her community, Mikulski became a social worker in Baltimore, helping at–risk children and educating seniors about the Medicare program. Social work evolved into community activism when Mikulski successfully organized communities against a plan to build a 16–lane highway through Baltimore’s Fells Point neighborhood. She helped stop the road, saving Fells Point and Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, both thriving residential and commercial communities today. Mikulski is a trailblazer. Her first election was a successful run for Baltimore City Council in 1971, where she served for five years. In 1976, she ran for Congress and won, representing Maryland’s 3rd district for 10 years. In 1986, she ran for Senate and won, becoming the first Democratic woman Senator elected in her own right. She was re–elected with large majorities in 1992, 1998, 2004 and 2010. Mikulski focused on the issues of civil rights, national security, space exploration, education, jobs, research and innovation, women's health, cybersecurity, seniors, and veterans. She was primary sponsor of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, addressing salary discrimination against women; it was the first bill signed into law in 2009 by President Obama, just days after his first inauguration. A leader in the Senate, Mikulski was the Dean of the Women, serving as a mentor to other women Senators when they first take office. As the dean, she built coalitions – proving that the Senate women are not solo acts, but work together to get things done. When she was sworn into office on January 5, 2011, Mikulski became the longest serving woman Senator in U.S. history. On March 17, 2012 she became the longest–serving woman in the history of the United States Congress. Of these milestones, she says, “It’s not about how long I serve, but about how well I serve my state and my nation.” On December 20, 2012, Mikulski became the first woman and first Marylander to chair the Senate Appropriations Committee, on which she has served since she arrived in the Senate in 1987. Senator Mikulski was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 2011. She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama in 2015. Mikulski’s experiences as a social worker and activist provided valuable lessons that she drew on as a United States Senator. She believed her constituents have a right to know, a right to be heard and a right to be represented. She listens to her constituents and makes the personal, political. Senator Mikulski retired from the U.S. Senate on January 3, 2017. She accepted a position as Homewood Professor of Political Science at John Hopkins University, and she participates in national speaking engagements on the topics of leadership, innovation, and women’s empowerment. Generous Support for this lecture has been provided by: The Hillman Foundation Endowment for the Center for Women and Politics International Women's Forum, Pittsburgh Chapter Campbell Memorial Chapel Anne Guadagnino pcwp@chatham.edu

Zero Weeks
Film screening and panel discussion. What do the United State and Papua New Guinea have in common? They are the only countries in the world without a paid family leave law. In 2011, only 11 percent of private sector workers and 17 percent of public workers reported that they had access to paid family leave through their employer. Because 44 percent of American households don’t have enough savings to cover their basic expenses for three months, the birth of a new child or a medical emergency can mean financial ruin. American families are often forced to choose between tending to a spouse or parent with an unexpected medical emergency, or keeping their job and health insurance. The crisis is just as bleak for pregnant American women. Twenty five percent of new mothers return to work within 10 days after giving birth. Without the protections of paid leave, new mothers are 40% more likely to end up on food stamps or public assistance. Once a fringe issue, paid leave is now central in the national debate. President Obama mentioned it in his State of the Union address and the Department of Labor has spearheaded a “Lead on Leave” tour. It’s not just political, it’s great economics: the three states that have implemented their own policies have experienced greater economic stability. Companies like Google, who have voluntarily offered over 16 weeks of paid leave, have seen their rates of attrition fall by 50%. Paid leave is not just good for families, marriages and the health of seniors, parents and children, but it’s beneficial for business and our nation’s ability to compete on a global scale. Weaving powerful emotional stories together with insightful interviews from leading policy makers, economists, and researchers, ZERO WEEKS lays out a compelling argument for guaranteed paid leave for every American worker. The film looks at paid leave from an emotional, medical, financial and global perspective. ZERO WEEKS is the fourth documentary by award-winning director, Ky Dickens. As a female director, with a trackrecord for creating poignant work known for shifting policy and public opinion, Dickens is an ideal filmmaker to tackle this project. Dickens was inspired to make a film about paid leave, after facing financial depletion and struggled with guilt and the emotional turmoil of “not enough time,”due to a lack of paid leave, after the birth of her first child.

SocialVR is an easy-to-use digital storytelling tool designed for youth to create personalized VR experiences based on 360 photos, text, image, and audio. Students visiting the Eden Hall campus as part of Remake Learning Days will have an opportunity to play with SocialVR to document their visit and build a virtual tour based on their reflections from the day’s experience. Youth tours will be illustrated through a series of personal commitments (visual, audio, and text) from local rising changemakers that connect the campus experience to daily sustainability practice. Open to youth in grades 6-12. This event is part of the Youth Voice section of Remake Learning Days. Eden Hall Campus, Esther Barrazzone Center Kira Martin K.Martin@Chatham.edu
