Feature Film @North Quincy: Jackie
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillJackie is a searing and intimate portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy (Natalie Portman). Jackie places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband's assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a psychological portrait of the First Lady as she struggles to maintain her husband’s legacy and the world of "Camelot" that they created and loved so well.

"Never embroidered or rehearsed, the way so many biopics are, this is a wonderful movie that feels freshly observed, like an uninvited peek through some forbidden White House keyhole, at the woman we called Jackie."-- New York Observer

Directed by Pablo Larraín. Starring Natalie Portman. Theatrically released in 2016. 100 Minutes; Rated R for brief strong violence and some language.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.

movie stillNominated for three Academy Awards. As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

"Lots of movies are labeled as "inspirational" – Hidden Figures truly earns the right to the term."--Rolling Stone

Phoenix book club logoDo you like to read? Would you like to talk to others about books? Then you will like our book discussion groups. Join us each month to discuss all kinds of books.

The Phoenix Book Club for children in grades 5-8.

Our theme will be Civil Rights. This month, at the request of the group, we're going back to Historical Fiction and tackling another heavy topic: Civil rights and the Civil Rights Movement. While the bulk of what we'll be reading will focus on the fight for civil rights in the 1960s, we'll also take a look back at what led up to the movement and the time after it, all the way up to today. To make sure we're educated on the topic, nonfiction will also be encouraged this month. We'll have plenty of books set aside in the Children's Room but please feel free to find your own as well.

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

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.

Feature Film @North Quincy: Hidden Figures
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillNominated for three Academy Awards. As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as "human computers", we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history's greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.

"Lots of movies are labeled as "inspirational" – Hidden Figures truly earns the right to the term."--Rolling Stone

Directed by Theodore Melfi. Starring Janelle Monáe, Kevin Costner, Octavia Spencer, and Taraji P. Henson. Theatrically released in 2016. 127 Minutes; Rated PG for thematic elements and some language.

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.

One of them, Chen, decides to fulfill his dead mother’s wish and sets off on a train journey to look for his brother’s abandoned child. His partner in the clinic, a lonely old lady, asks Chen to find her old lover, and give him an old photograph, a shirt and a music cassette. But on the way, Chen passes a mysterious town called Dangmai, where time is not linear and people’s lives complement each other. Here, Chen experiences the past, present and future. It’s unclear whether this world is the doctor’s dream, or the other way around.

Night Owls Book Group for grades 3-4
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Night Owls Book Club is for children in grades 3 and 4.

This month we will be discussing Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer by Kelly Jones. Twelve-year-old Sophie Brown feels like a fish out of water when she and her parents move from Los Angeles to the farm they’ve inherited from a great-uncle. But farm life gets more interesting when a cranky chicken appears and Sophie discovers the hen can move objects with the power of her little chicken brain: jam jars, the latch to her henhouse, the entire henhouse.... And then more of her great-uncle’s unusual chickens come home to roost.

Determined, resourceful Sophie learns to care for her flock, earning money for chicken feed, collecting eggs. But when a respected local farmer tries to steal them, Sophie must find a way to keep them (and their superpowers) safe.

Pick up your copy of the book in the Children’s Room to read before the meeting. Any questions, call 617-376-2411 and ask to speak with Ms. Cronin.

Born into the 1%, inequality expert and activist Chuck Collins gave away his inheritance at 26 and spent the next three decades mobilizing against inequality.  He uses his perspective from both sides of the divide to deliver a new narrative. All are welcome to join Chuck for an engaging evening as he invites the wealthy to come back home, investing themselves and their wealth in struggling communities and the non-wealthy to build alliances with the one percent and others at the top of the wealth ladder.  He'll show how taxpayers subsidize the wealthy, and reveal how charity, used incorrectly, can actually reinforce extreme inequality.

In the roaring '20s, Prohibition hasn’t stopped the flow of booze in an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. The opportunity to gain power and money is there for any man with enough ambition and nerve and Joe Coughlin, the son of the Boston Police Superintendent, long ago turned his back on his strict upbringing for the spoils of being an outlaw. But even among criminals there are rules and Joe breaks a big one: crossing a powerful mob boss by stealing his money and his moll. The fiery affair ends in tragedy, setting Joe on a path of revenge, ambition, romance and betrayal that propels him out of Boston and up the ladder of Tampa’s steamy rum-running underworld.

"The film is sharply written and crafted, lavishly photographed, impeccably acted, with lots of twists and turns."--Variety

Directed by Ben Affleck. Starring Ben Affleck, Brendan Gleeson, Chris Cooper, Chris Messina, Elle Fanning, Sienna Miller, and Zoe Saldana. Theatrically released in 2016. 129 Minutes; Rated R for strong violence, language throughout, and some sexuality/nudity.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.

Matinee Film: Toni Erdmann
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

movie stillWinfried (Peter Simonischek) doesn’t see much of his working daughter Ines (Sandra Hüller). The suddenly student-less music teacher decides to surprise her with a visit after the death of his old dog. It’s an awkward move because serious career woman Ines is working on an important project as a corporate strategist in Bucharest. The geographical change doesn’t help the two to see more eye to eye. Practical joker Winfried loves to annoy his daughter with corny pranks. What’s worse are his little jabs at her routine lifestyle of long meetings, hotel bars and performance reports. Father and daughter reach an impasse, and Winfried agrees to return home to Germany. Enter flashy Toni Erdmann: Winfried’s smooth-talking alter ego. Disguised in a tacky suit, weird wig and even weirder fake teeth, Toni barges into Ines’ professional life, claiming to be her CEO’s life coach. As Toni, Winfried is bolder and doesn’t hold back, but Ines meets the challenge. The harder they push, the closer they become. In all the madness, Ines begins to understand that her eccentric father might deserve some place in her life after all.

"If you're looking for the best and most beguiling foreign-language film of the year, you'll find it in Maren Ade's Toni Erdmann, a German father-daughter story that will leave you laughing and choking back tears, often simultaneously."--Rolling Stone

Directed by Maren Ade. Starring Peter Simonischek and Sandra Hüller. Theatrically released in 2016. 162 Minutes; Rated R for strong sexual content, graphic nudity, language and brief drug use. In English, German, and Romanian.

After a lonely summer on Privet Drive, Harry returns to a Hogwarts full of ill-fortune. Few of the students and parents believe him or Dumbledore that Voldemort is really back. The ministry has decided to step in by appointing a new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher who proves to be the nastiest person Harry has ever encountered. Harry also can't help stealing glances at the beautiful Cho Chang. To top it off are dreams that Harry can't explain, and a mystery behind something Voldemort is searching for. Thus, Harry begins one of his toughest years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

  • The extent of "expertise" of court investigators under Custody of Michel
  • The truth about the 5th Amend. and the adverse inference (and it's not good)
  • Confusion about children's testimony and accommodations
  • The outer limits & endless permutations of "statements of a party opponent"
  • Is everything a child says an "excited utterance" after the new Rule 1:28 decision Adoption of Joyce?
  • And many other subjects too wacky, grim, and/or fury-inducing to list
Presenter: Andrew Cohen, Director of Appellate Panel, CAFL
This is a free seminar offered by the Children and Family Law section of the Committee for Public Counsel Services
