The House on the Borderland by William Hope Hodgson

Event: Book Club

April 25th, 2015 10:00 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Join us to discuss William Hope Hodgson's "The House on the Borderland".

from Amazon
The1908 classic tale of cosmic terror. A reclusive man and his sister, isolated in an ancient country house in Ireland, confront malignant creatures from deep in the Earth. . . . "I leant forward, and peered over, and down into the Pit, just beneath where I stood; and saw no further than a hideous, white swine-face, that had risen to within a couple of yards of my feet. Below it, I could make out several others. As the Thing saw me, it gave a sudden, uncouth squeal, which was answered from all parts of the Pit. A gust of horror and fear took me, and I discharged my gun right into its face. My sister was coming towards me. "Run!" I shouted. "Run, for your life!" . . . "The book is more than a creepy story," says Max Gersh in his introduction. "Hodgson understood that true horror is a glimpse of the cosmic."

HSGP will benefit if you purchase this book through the Amazon Smile program. Click on the image below.

The Hilltop Survey, West-Central Arizona, 1988-Present

Event: Humanities Project Outing: Archaelogy Cafe

April 28th, 2015 5:30 pm - Tuesday


Location: Macayo's Central, 4001 N Central Ave, Phoenix

Dr. David R. Wilcox will share the results of a long-term survey of defensible ancient places in central Arizona.

Archaeology Café is an informal forum where adults can learn more about the Southwest’s deep history and speak directly to experts. We have based Archaeology Café on the science pub or science cafe model that developed in Europe and quickly spread to major American cities. At Archaeology Café, we break down the static, jargon-laden dynamic of traditional lectures, and have an expert share some ideas with the group in ways that get discussion going. (Food and drink make things a little livelier, too.)

Although kids may attend with adult supervision, Archaeology Cafés are best for adults and young adults.

If accommodation is needed due to disability, please contact Linda Pierce by email or phone, (520) 882-6946, ext. 23.

The 2014–2015 season of Archaeology Café is made possible, in part, by Arizona Humanities. Dr. David R. Wilcox will share the results of a long-term survey of defensible ancient places in central Arizona.

Place: We meet in the Aztec Room of Macayo’s Central, 4001 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, near the Indian School light rail stop.

Time: Presentations begin after 6:00 p.m. It is best to arrive at about 5:30 p.m. in order to get settled, as seating is open and unreserved, but limited. Share tables and make new friends!

Cost: Archaeology Café is free, but guests are encouraged to order their own refreshments from the menu. Enjoy happy hour prices!

A Free Humanities Project Meetup.

The Creation of the American Southwest 1750 - 1950

Speaker: Dr. Brian Gratton

May 17th, 2015 10:00 am - Sunday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Gratton uses unique census data, images, and maps to reveal the historical experience of Indians, Hispanics, other Americans, and immigrants in the region we call the American Southwest.

Before the Mexican American War, the region was dominated by indigenous nations. Migrants from other parts of the United States and European immigrants sparked a rapid growth of population after 1848 and, between 1900 and 1930, mass immigration from Mexico created the distinctive Southwest we know today.

Dr. Brian Gratton is a Professor of History at Arizona State University and studies immigration and ethnicity in the United States.

Doors open at 9:00 am for socializing with an optional breakfast available for a $5 donation. The presentation begins at 10:00.

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

Event: Book Club

May 23rd, 2015 10:00 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Join us to discuss Jon Krakauer's "Into Thin Air: A Personal Account of the Mt. Everest Disaster".

from Amazon
A bank of clouds was assembling on the not-so-distant horizon, but journalist-mountaineer Jon Krakauer, standing on the summit of Mt. Everest, saw nothing that "suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down." He was wrong. The storm, which claimed five lives and left countless more--including Krakauer's--in guilt-ridden disarray, would also provide the impetus for Into Thin Air, Krakauer's epic account of the May 1996 disaster.

HSGP will benefit if you purchase this book through the Amazon Smile program. Click on the image below.

The Old Spanish Trail

Speaker: Dr. Reba Wells Grandrud

June 07th, 2015 10:00 am - Sunday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

The Old Spanish Trail

Is the name a misnomer? Was it old? Was it even Spanish? How did the Ute Trail, Apodaca Trail, Old Conejos Lane, or the Trappers' Trail fit into what is now called the Old Spanish National Historic Trail, the fifteenth National Historic Trail in the nation, the second National Historic Trail in Arizona? This presentation provides “tales of the trail,” fascinating stories of what has been called "the longest, crookedest, most arduous pack mule trailin the history of America.”

Reba Wells Grandrud, Ph.D., enjoys being a Road Scholar and an active volunteer for diverse nonprofits, such as Partnership for National Trails System, Old Spanish Trail Association, Arizona History Convention, Westerners Corrals, Pioneer Cemetery Association, and the Sunnyslope Historical Society. In 2012, Grandrud co-authored an award-winning Arizona Centennial Legacy book, "Addie Slaughter: The Girl Who Met Geronimo". Her book "Images of America: Sunnyslope" was published in 2013. Grandrud was honored in 2010 as an Arizona Culturekeeper for her work in teaching.

The meeting is free and open to the public. Doors open at 9:00 am for socializing with an optional breakfast available for a $5 donation. The meeting begins at 10:00 am.

Ghost Installations of WWII and Arizona's Historic Military Sites

Speaker: Erik Berg

July 12th, 2015 10:00 am - Sunday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

During the Second World War, Arizona’s open spaces, sparse population, and mild weather made it an ideal location for a wide range of military operations including combat training, POW camps, and flight training. By war’s end, more pilots received their wings in Arizona than in any other state. This presentation discusses the war’s impact on Arizona with a special focus on those sites that still have significant features, foundations, or remains from the war period. Using both historic and contemporary photographs, this presentation describes the original purpose of the remaining features the sites and their significance to the war effort.

Raised in Flagstaff, Arizona, Erik Berg is an award-winning historian and writer with a special interest in the early twentieth century Southwest and the impact of science and technology.

Doors open at 9:00 am for socializing with an optional breakfast available for a $5 donation. The presentation begins at 10:00 am.

UMOM New Day Center

Event: Service Outreach

September 26th, 2015 9:00 am - Saturday


Location: Human Services Campus, 230 S 12th Ave, Phoenix

Tour/orientation starts at 9:00, volunteer hours begin at 9:30. I highly recommend a tour if you have not been there yet, so you can hear about all the amazing programs and services UMOM offers.

10-15 of us will be in the kitchen to prepare and serve brunch. Some of us may be tasked with some deep cleaning of the kitchen and dining room. If there are additional volunteers, there will be other activities available, such as helping to sort clothes, painting, or maintenance.

UMOM is the largest homeless shelter for families in the state of Arizona. Every night they provide safe shelter and supportive services for over 170 families through their continuum of services. They also offer nearly 300 units of affordable housing across the Valley.

Parking is available in the lot in front of the building.

Hosted by Michal Otten, who will be wearing a humanist/secular themed T-shirt.
