Matinee Film: Hacksaw Ridge
1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

movie stillIn Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

"Hacksaw Ridge is one of the best films of 2016. And the victory is all the more sweet for Gibson in that he succeeds on his own weird terms."--San Francisco Chronicle

Directed by Mel Gibson. Starring Andrew Garfield, Luke Bracey, Sam Worthington, Teresa Palmer. Theatrically released in 2016. 139 Minutes; Rated R for intense prolonged realistically graphic sequences of war violence including grisly bloody images.

Women's March Huddle
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

On January 21, over 5 Million of us worldwide and over 1 Million in Washington, D.C., came to march, speak and make our voices heard at the Women's March. This Huddle is part of the 10 Actions for the First 100 Days campaign, which launched at the Women’s March, and will mobilize millions to win back the country and world we want. We’ll visualize what a more democratic, just, safer and freer world could look like four years from now -- and we’ll work backwards to figure out what we need to do, starting today, to get there. Huddles are meant to be positive, inclusive, action-oriented and productive. This is a gathering to meet each other and plan for the future. All are welcome. This is completely free and you will not be asked to donate money.

Go Green @your Library: The World Warms and Snow Disappears
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Dr Young and a globeWith a warming world our snow cover is disappearing

Ice and snow cover on Earth influences the world’s climate by reflecting solar energy back to space, keeping the globe at an ideal temperature. As our world warms due to climate change, that important ice and snow cover is starting to disappear and the Earth is beginning to absorb more solar radiation, increasing the warming of the world. Come hear Professor Young as he presents the science of climate change and then explores the change in snow cover globally and in our area of northeastern North America.

Dr. Young is a professor of remote sensing and environmental sustainability at Salem State University where he uses satellites to study climate change. His current research centers on environmental change in NorthEast North America, nature conservation in China and explaining science in art gallery exhibits. He recently co-edited two books on global environmental change and sustainability, edited a special edition of the journal Northeastern Geographer on environmental change in NE North America, and wrote a number of journal articles and book chapters on spects of climate change and environmental conservation in China.

The Phoenix Book Club for children in grades 5-8.
This month our theme is World War II.  For March we're delving into history and exploring the time period of World War II. We'll be reading both fiction and nonfiction for this meeting, so go ahead and pick something from either category or both. Keep in mind, the reason we call it World War II is because it truly spanned the globe, so books for this month take place all over the world. While this is going to be a heavier discussion than usual due to the serious nature of the subject, it's an important time in history and well worth reading about. Take a look at the books put aside in the Children's Room and venture down to the 940s in the nonfiction section to find out about the real events that the novels are about.

Stop by the Children’s Room to select a book.

Capitalism With Justice and Equal Opportunity
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
book jacketAdam Smith wanted to increase everyone’s happiness. In Wealth of Nations he gave his formula for this good life: equality, liberty, and justice. To be true to the ideals of America’s founders, we should adopt this formula for a wealthy and happy nation.

Join Curry College Professor Emeritus John E. Hill and explore his research that argues that free market interpretations of Smith are gross misinterpretations that have produced a growing economic inequality which would have been anathema to both Smith and the American founders. What policies might we adopt today that would combine all three (equality, liberty, AND justice) so everyone can pursue happiness?

Smith’s aim was to influence legislators, so he suggested principles for policy decisions: an ethical market economy, evidence-based solutions, adapting best practices from around the world, and good government. These principles were designed to produce economic equality, which Smith strongly supported. The book suggests policy options to address contemporary problems in healthcare, education, crime, national defense, and taxation. Since we cannot know what specific policies Smith would have advocated, these are intended as suggestions for what might be done to increase everyone’s happiness, if we followed Smith’s principles.

A resident of Quincy for over 35 years, John Hill is an expert on our nation’s founders, especially John Adams, and on the father of capitalism, Adam Smith. He has written extensively and won accolades for teaching and advising.

book jacketPrepare to revise your understanding of what was once known as the War on Terror. Brian Glyn Williams, Professor of Islamic History at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth will share highlights from his recently published book about the first history of America's military operations against radical Islamists, from the Taliban-controlled Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan, to the Sunni Triangle of Iraq, to ISIS's headquarters in the deserts of central Syria. Williams will provide the missing historical context for the rise of the terror group ISIS out of the ashes of Saddam Hussein's secular Baathist Iraq, arguing that it is only by carefully exploring the recent past can we understand how this jihadist group came to conquer an area larger than Britain and spread havoc from Syria to Paris to San Bernardino.

Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

book jacketJoe and Rose Kennedy’s strikingly beautiful daughter Rosemary attended exclusive schools, was presented as a debutante to the Queen of England, and traveled the world with her high-spirited sisters. And yet, Rosemary was intellectually disabled — a secret fiercely guarded by her powerful and glamorous family. 

Our prsenter, Dr. Kate Clifford Larson wrote the book that was awarded the prize for best non-fiction book in the 2016 Massachusetts Book Award on this fascinating individual. Using major new sources (Rose Kennedy’s diaries and correspondence, school and doctors' letters, and exclusive family interviews) Dr. Larson will help us get to know this hidden Kennedy was left far behind by her competitive siblings. Learn about both the sensitive care Rose and Joe gave to Rosemary and then, as the family’s standing reached an apex, the often desperate and duplicitous arrangements the Kennedys made to keep her away from home as she became increasingly intractable in her early twenties. Rosemary was lobotomized at age twenty-three and Dr. Larson will describe the family's complicity in keeping the secret. 

Copies of her book will be available for sale and autograph. Sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library, who will be conducting their annual meeting immediately prior to this program. Everyone is welcome to attend both the meeting and this program.

Turn the Page on Domestic Violence
7:00 PM - 8:45 PM

book jacketCalling all Quincy Readers, Book Groups, & Reading Circles! Join us to read and discuss Leslie Morgan Steiner’s Crazy Love (2009).

Leslie Morgan Steiner met the love of her life at age 22, soon after graduating from Harvard and starting her first job at Seventeen magazine in New York. She fell for his self-deprecating wit and street smarts - and especially his unabashed worship of her. They married and spent four years together. At first Leslie felt like the woman of his dreams.

Then she discovered her husband had been beaten as a child, taught by his parents that intimacy and rage dance together. He brought violence into their life, pouring coffee grinds over her hair, choking and threatening her with a gun during arguments. Several times, he came close to making good on his threats to kill her. Leslie’s mistake is one millions identify with: she fell in love with the wrong man. It took one last terrifying attack to convince her that he would kill her one day if she let him.

Gripping and compelling, Crazy Love unravels the traps laid by love, mesmerizing listeners with insights into why smart women stay in unhealthy relationships - and how one found the courage to leave.

-Publisher’s Summary

Join us as we learn together about the issue of domestic violence, how it impacts our community, and what you can do to address and prevent it. Sponsored by DOVE.

Sing and dance with Rubi Lichauco! Rubi brings her popular preschool program to Quincy so put on your favorite dancing shoes and join us for this lively mix of music and movement for children ages 0-4 accompanied by an adult.

This program has become so popular there isn’t room to move and dance as we would like so we have decided to split the group in two.  No registration is required; when the 10:00 session fills we will close the doors.  Please spend some time in the children’s room choosing books or playing with our early literacy activities while you wait for the 10:30 session.  Thank you for your cooperation we really think 2 smaller groups will make this program more fun for everyone.
