He was restless and lacked direction, and the idea of dropping everything and moving to the ends of the earth was irresistibly romantic. He should have known better.The Sex Lives of Cannibals tells the hilarious story of what happens when Troost discovers that Tarawa is not the island paradise he dreamed of. Falling into one amusing misadventure after another, Troost struggles through relentless, stifling heat, a variety of deadly bacteria, polluted seas, toxic fish—all in a country where the only music to be heard for miles around is “La Macarena.” He and his stalwart girlfriend Sylvia spend the next two years battling incompetent government officials, alarmingly large critters, erratic electricity, and a paucity of food options (including the Great Beer Crisis); and contending with a bizarre cast of local characters, including “Half-Dead Fred” and the self-proclaimed Poet Laureate of Tarawa (a British drunkard who’s never written a poem in his life).With The Sex Lives of Cannibals, Maarten Troost has delivered one of the most original, rip-roaringly funny travelogues in years—one that will leave you thankful for staples of American civilization such as coffee, regular showers, and tabloid news, and that will provide the ultimate vicarious adventure.</p> </div> </div> Career Management for Introverts (Science, Industry and Business Library (SIBL)) //www.nypl.org/node/346520 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">Science, Industry and Business Library (SIBL), Conference Room 018</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2016-06-29T18:00:00-04:00">Wednesday, June 29 - 6:00 pm</abbr></p><div class="summary"><p> </p> <p>Do you feel you shouldn’t have to sell yourself?  Are you uncomfortable around people who are talking about their accomplishments?  Do you find yourself looking for ways to get out of conversations rather than into them?  In managing our career we have to be regularly in touch with people who we don’t know well and whose good opinion we need.  This puts us in the awkward position of talking to and potentially wanting favors from people we are not yet friendly with. </p> <p>Coach Win Sheffield discusses ways to move ahead in the face of shyness and reluctance to talk to strangers. </p> <p>Techniques covered include:</p> <p>• Recognizing how to use our strengths to impress your listener in more quiet ways</p> <p>• Using story techniques to approach difficult to address successes obliquely</p> <p>• Structured ways to approach and prepare for conversations</p> <p>• Career management methods that minimize conversation</p> Seating is on a first come , first seated basis. <p> </p> </div> </div> Resume Workshop (Seward Park Library) //www.nypl.org/node/352184 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">Seward Park Library</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2016-06-29T18:00:00-04:00">Wednesday, June 29 - 6:00 pm</abbr></p><div class="summary"><p>Come join us on the basement floor to sharpen your resume!
