On Exhibit: Earth's Natural Beauty
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM

art sampleKacey Bongarzone's artwork will be on display the entire month of March. View an online gallery.

She has the following to say about her artwork:

I am inspired by Thomas Merton who said, "Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time".

The natural beauty of earth impresses me every day. My experiences with education, others, and travel have helped develop my curiosity for sharing the expressive arts. I enjoy studying the lines, depth, and color, which time and atmosphere have developed.

Flowing lines and vibrant color can regenerate what was originally seen. The added color and vibrancy brings affection and adoration to our trees, water, stone, animals, and interests. I love expressing it to support others observation, appreciate this wonder, and soothe my mind.

Art may express and identify favorable and polished parts of a person's life that shows origin and beauty. Art can be drawing, painting, photography, forming, writing, cooking, gardening, meditating, hiking, planning, developing, breathing, and being. I will be practicing this myself and encourage others to do so as well.

Matinee @North Quincy: Artemisia
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie still

Italian artist Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1653) was the first woman in western art to be officially recognised by the guilds as a painter. She was also the central figure in a notorious rape trial. This movie tells the story of her youth, when she was guided and protected by her father, the painter Orazio Gentileschi. This film has been criticized because it portrays the relationship between Artemisia and her teacher, Agostino Tassi as a beautiful love affair, and claims Artemisia was tortured because she refused to testify in court that he raped her. This film is filled with sensual imagery and celebrates the idea that art (not love) conquers all.

Directed by Agnès Merlet. Starring Valentina Cervi, Michel Serrault, and Predrag 'Miki' Manojlovic. Theatrically released in 1997. 98 Minutes; Rated R.

When Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a world-class black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on The Green Book to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humor-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

Matinee @North Quincy: Green Book
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillNominated for 5 Academy Awards including Best Picture. Named best picture of 2018 by the National Board of Review. Won the Golden Globe for Best Picture (Musical or Comedy). Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival.

When Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a world-class black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on The Green Book to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humor-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

Witty and warm as cashmere, Green Book is a two-hander in which both stars soar with humor and heart.--Rex Reed, Observer

Directed by Peter Farrelly. Starring Brian Stepanek, Daniel Greene, Dimiter Marinov, Don Stark, Iqbal Theba, Jenna Laurenzo, Joseph Cortese, Linda Cardellini, Maggie Nixon, Mahershala Ali, Martin Bats Bradford, Mike Hatton, Nick Vallelonga, Ninja N.

Yoga Meditation
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

sahaja yoga body mapCome to a free workshop and learn an easy, yet extremely effective, meditative yoga technique that can help reduce stress and bring a new sense of integration, balance, and well being to your life. These sessions are led by a team of experienced practitioners from Sahaja Yoga, who teach on a volunteer basis. All of Sahaja Yoga's classes are free of charge and are offered as a community service. Learn more in this QATV interview.

Sahaja Yoga sponsors free stress reduction and meditation workshops around the country, as well as in over 90 nations around the world, and currently offers meditation classes in Bedford, Boston, Salem, and Cambridge. The method of Sahaja Meditation was introduced in 1970 by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, who has since received numerous honors and awards for her work, including a Nobel Peace Prize nomination and a formal recognition for her contribution to humanity by the US Congress. Learn more about Sahaja Yoga on their website.

Here's what people are saying about these meditation sessions:

I love the group meditation experience, the education of the process of Sahaja Yoga meditation, the music, and the very fine instructors.

I thought it (the technique) was well explained and easy to follow.

Matinee Film: Bohemian Rhapsody
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

movie stillNominated for 5 Academy Awards including Best Picture. Won the Golden Globe for Best Picture (Drama).

Bohemian Rhapsody is a celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

Bohemian Rhapsody and Rami Malek cleverly and warmly distill an era and its music into a thoroughly entertaining piece of music history.--Roger Moore, Movie Nation

Directed by Bryan Singer and Dexter Fletcher. Starring Aaron McCusker, Ace Bhatti, Aidan Gillen, Allen Leech, Ben Hardy, Gwilym Lee, Jess Radomska, Jessie Vinning, Joseph Mazzello, Lora Moss, Lucy Boynton, Max Bennett, Michelle Duncan, Mike Myers, Rami Malek, and Tom Hollander.

The Night Owls Book Club for children in grades 3 and 4 meets on the 2nd Thursday of each month.
 
This month we will be reading Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
 
Celebrate National Poetry month with this outrageously funny collection of poems and drawings where you'll meet a boy who turns into a TV set, and a girl who eats a whale. The Unicorn and the Bloath live there, and so does Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout who will not take the garbage out. It is a place where you wash your shadow and plant diamond gardens, a place where shoes fly, sisters are auctioned off, and crocodiles go to the dentist.
 
Pick up a copy of Where the Sidewalk Ends at the main library children’s desk to read before our meeting.

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

movie stillOur partnership with the Quincy Art Association continues with Art Films every third Thursday.

Willem Dafoe won Best Actor for his work in this film at the 75th Venice Film Festival. At Eternity’s Gate is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh’s (Willem Dafoe) letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented.

Schnabel, the director of “Before Night Falls” and “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,” has stripped down his filmmaking in the most seductive way, all to achieve something audacious and elemental. He’s out to imagine what Vincent van Gogh was really like — to bask in van Gogh’s presence with an experiential, present-tense immediacy.--Variety

Directed by Julian Schnabel. Starring Alan Aubert, Amira Casar, Anne Consigny, Emmanuelle Seigner, Lolita Chammah, Mads Mikkelsen, Mathieu Amalric, Niels Arestrup, Oscar Isaac, Patrick Chesnais, Rupert Friend, Stella Schnabel, Victor Pontecorvo, Vincent Perez, and Willem Dafoe.

Matinee Film: At Eternity's Gate
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

movie still

Willem Dafoe won Best Actor for his work in this film at the 75th Venice Film Festival. At Eternity’s Gate is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule and illness, created some of the world’s most beloved and stunning works of art. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent van Gogh’s (Willem Dafoe) letters, common agreement about events in his life that present as facts, hearsay, and moments that are just plain invented.

Schnabel, the director of “Before Night Falls” and “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,” has stripped down his filmmaking in the most seductive way, all to achieve something audacious and elemental. He’s out to imagine what Vincent van Gogh was really like — to bask in van Gogh’s presence with an experiential, present-tense immediacy.--Variety

Directed by Julian Schnabel. Starring Alan Aubert, Amira Casar, Anne Consigny, Emmanuelle Seigner, Lolita Chammah, Mads Mikkelsen, Mathieu Amalric, Niels Arestrup, Oscar Isaac, Patrick Chesnais, Rupert Friend, Stella Schnabel, Victor Pontecorvo, Vincent Perez, and Willem Dafoe. Theatrically released in 2018. 111 Minutes; Rated PG-13.

Matinee Film: The Old Man & the Gun
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

movie stillRedford has announced that this is his final performance as an actor.

Forrest Tucker (Robert Redford) has been on the wrong side of the law since he was a teen. He grew into a career bank robber who broke out of prison 18 times, including a daring escape from San Quentin at age 70. The film covers his twilight years, and an unprecedented string of daring heists that confound authorities and enchants the public. Wrapped up in this chase are a detective (Casey Affleck) who becomes captivated with Forrest’s commitment to his craft, and a woman (Sissy Spacek) who loves him in spite of his chosen profession.

So damn charming it makes your heart twinkle like Redford's eyes.--Jamie Graham, Total Film

Directed by David Lowery. Starring Ari Elizabeth Johnson, Augustine Frizzell, Casey Affleck, Danny Glover, Denise Barone, Elisabeth Moss, Gene Jones, Isiah Whitlock Jr, John David Washington, Keith Carradine, Robert Redford, Sissy Spacek, Teagan Johnson, Tika Sumpter, and Tom Waits. Theatrically released in 2018. 93 Minutes; Rated PG-13.

Yoga Meditation
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

sahaja yoga body mapCome to a free workshop and learn an easy, yet extremely effective, meditative yoga technique that can help reduce stress and bring a new sense of integration, balance, and well being to your life. These sessions are led by a team of experienced practitioners from Sahaja Yoga, who teach on a volunteer basis. All of Sahaja Yoga's classes are free of charge and are offered as a community service. Learn more in this QATV interview.

Sahaja Yoga sponsors free stress reduction and meditation workshops around the country, as well as in over 90 nations around the world, and currently offers meditation classes in Bedford, Boston, Salem, and Cambridge. The method of Sahaja Meditation was introduced in 1970 by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, who has since received numerous honors and awards for her work, including a Nobel Peace Prize nomination and a formal recognition for her contribution to humanity by the US Congress. Learn more about Sahaja Yoga on their website.

Here's what people are saying about these meditation sessions:

I love the group meditation experience, the education of the process of Sahaja Yoga meditation, the music, and the very fine instructors.

I thought it (the technique) was well explained and easy to follow.

Matinee Film: The Favourite
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

movie stillNominated for 10 Academy Awards including Best Picture. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2018 Venice International Film Festival.

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfill her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

It’s a bit crazy, wild yet precise, a mix of comedy and drama that feints in the direction of anachronism, even as it provides a grand showcase for Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone and Olivia Colman, who are extraordinary.--Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

Directed by Giorgos Lanthimos. Starring Basil Eidenbenz, Denise Mack, Emma Delves, Emma Stone, Faye Daveney, Isaura Barbé-Brown, Jack Veal, James Smith, Jennifer White, Jenny Rainsford, Joe Alwyn, John Locke, LillyRose Stevens, Mark Gatiss, Nicholas Hoult, Olivia Colman, Paul Swaine, Rachel Weisz, Timothy Innes, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte.

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 two smaller groups will make this program more fun for everyone.

Matinee Film: The Favourite
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

movie stillNominated for 10 Academy Awards including Best Picture. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2018 Venice International Film Festival.

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfill her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

It’s a bit crazy, wild yet precise, a mix of comedy and drama that feints in the direction of anachronism, even as it provides a grand showcase for Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone and Olivia Colman, who are extraordinary.--Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle

Directed by Giorgos Lanthimos. Starring Basil Eidenbenz, Denise Mack, Emma Delves, Emma Stone, Faye Daveney, Isaura Barbé-Brown, Jack Veal, James Smith, Jennifer White, Jenny Rainsford, Joe Alwyn, John Locke, LillyRose Stevens, Mark Gatiss, Nicholas Hoult, Olivia Colman, Paul Swaine, Rachel Weisz, Timothy Innes, Wilson Radjou-Pujalte.

1985 IndestructibleLocal director Rudy Childs returns with his latest film, 1985: Indestructible. He will be present to answer questions afterward.

This documentary examines the metal band Forcer, anxious to do whatever it takes to succeed in the music business. The story follows the band as they are featured at huge outdoor Maryland parties drawing the attention of local authorities. Eventually they commandeered a rental truck and headed for the West coast. More encounters with the law occur as they reach Hollywood only to discover that they were not the only band who were trying “make it” in California. Soon they retreat back East and travel to New England, only to become victims of the very crime they perpetrated when their equipment truck gets stolen. Watch the trailer

Discover Historic New England: Classic General Stores
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

book coverLocal historian and popular WCVB Channel 5 Boston televison reported Ted Reinstein will talk about the subject of his third book, New England's General Stores: Exploring an American Classic.

Written with his wife, former ABC journalist Anne-Marie Dorning, the book looks at how the humble general store helped shape New England, and how today, in the era of the big box store, it continues to be a focal point and a gathering place for towns all across the region. No wonder that, like the diner, the general store is enjoying a resurgence and is even being reinvented and reimagined.  For many communities, there is a feeling that what their longtime general store represents—a vital “third place” in the community—is more important today than ever.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library. The Friends' Annual Meeting will be conducted immediately prior to this program, starting at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Music and Movement with Rubi for ages 0-4
10:00 AM - 10:30 AM

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 two smaller groups will make this program more fun for everyone.
