Discover the Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

orchestra photoCome to an educational and entertaining presentation on the beauty of the Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra and experience the beauty and spirit of traditional Chinese music combined seamlessly with the precision, power and grandeur of the Western symphony orchestra. Until 2012, this music was heard only as the accompaniment to the dance performances of Shen Yun, a show aiming to revive OVER 5,000 years of Chinese civilization. Shen Yun Symphony Orchestra's formation ultimately resulted from requests from audience members who found themselves enchanted by the music. The orchestra made its debut at Carnegie Hall in 2012 and will next perform in Boston on October 21.

A Chinese tea tasting and refreshments will be offered. Like all events at the library, this is free and open to everyone.

Ancient Chinese instruments share a deep connection with Heaven and Earth. The delicate notes of the plucked pipa evoke a sense of celestial realms. The enchanting sound of the 4,000-year-old erhu mimics the human voice. Leading the melody amidst a full Western orchestra, they create a profound musical experience that resonates deep in the heart. Listen to an example. Learn more.

Learn Why You HAVE to Vote!
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

CACRA logoJoin the Chinese American Citizen Right Alliance for an energizing and informative gathering to encurage everyone to vote!

Voter turnout of Chinese Americans averages 20-30%. To have the voices of Chinese Americans heard, to strive for the rights of Chinese Americans, and to promote the status of Chinese Americans, voting is the first step!

Many people immigrate to the United States with hopes for a better life and an opportunity to give their children a good education and a bright future. In the United States we recognize human rights, the right to vote, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, equal opportunity, and basic social protections. People fought hard to win these rights and we are still striving today to make sure everyone truly receives them and all of our rights are protected. 

Please join us for introductory comments from representatives of UCA and APAPA, a short film on the history of Chinese Americans and a workshop that will address questions about the importance of voting.

Co-sponsored by the Chinese American Citizen Right AllianceSouth Shore Elder Services, Inc.Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs (APAPA); and United Chinese Americans (UCA).

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

movie stillWith a new iPhone, an apartment near the Grove, and a comfortable bank account left to her by her beloved late husband, Marnie Minervini (Susan Sarandon) has happily relocated from New Jersey to LosAngeles to be near her daughter Lori (Rose Byrne), a successful (but still single) screenwriter, and smother her with motherly love.

Merchants of Doubt
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

movie stillInspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, Merchants of Doubt takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin. Documentarian Robert Kenner (Food, Inc.) lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities – yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change.

"The film targets the spinmeisters, hired by or associated with corporate interests, whose job, despite their lack of scientific training, is to discredit the science of climate change doomsayers. The fact that some of these spinmeisters proudly base their method on the machinations of tobacco-industry lobbyists is doubly damning."--Christian Science Monitor

Directed by Robert Kenner. Starring Naomi Oreskes, Sam Roe. Theatrically released in 2015. 96 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for brief strong language.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.

Presented in partnership with MCAN, the Mass Climate Action Network; Quincy CAN, The Quincy Climate Action Networ; and FRRACS, Fore River Residents Against the Compressor Station.

Snowball in a Blizzard: Uncertainty in Medicine
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

book jacketThere’s a running joke among radiologists: finding a tumor in a mammogram is akin to finding a snowball in a blizzard. Doctors are faced with difficulties every day when sifting through piles of data from blood tests to X-rays to endless lists of patient symptoms. Diagnoses are often just educated guesses, and prognoses less certain still. There is a significant amount of uncertainty in the daily practice of medicine, resulting in confusion and potentially deadly complications.

Join our presenter, Dr. Steven Hatch to learn why should embrace this uncertainty. In his recently published book, he digs deeply into a number of rancorous controversies, from breast cancer screening to blood pressure management, Hatch shows us how medicine can fail—sometimes spectacularly—when patients and doctors alike place too much faith in modern medical technology. The key to good health might lie in the ability to recognize the hype created by so many medical reports, sense when to push a physician for more testing, or resist a physician’s enthusiasm when unnecessary tests or treatments are being offered.

Presented in partnership with the Quincy College Presidential Speaker's Series.

Matinee Film: Indignation
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

movie stillIn 1951, Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman), a working class Jewish boy from Newark, New Jersey, travels on scholarship to a small, conservative college in Ohio, thus exempting him from being drafted into the Korean War. But once there, Marcus’s growing infatuation with his beautiful classmate Olivia Hutton (Sarah Gadon), and his clashes with the college’s imposing Dean, Hawes Caudwell (Tracy Letts), put his and his family’s best laid plans to the ultimate test.

"This is one helluva compelling film that presents us with several of the very best performances of the year. Lerman and Letts, in particular, present us with fully-developed characterizations that will remain with audiences long after they leave the theater."--Chicago Sun-Times

Directed by James Schamus. Starring Logan Lerman & Sarah Gadon. Theatrically released in 2016. 110 Minutes; Rated R for sexual content and some language.
