On Exhibit: Thoughts in Colors
12:00 AM - 12:00 AM

prosperity art sampleView Juan Bernardo Pena Romero's artwork on exhibit April 2 to 30

Juan was born in Bogota, Colombia (South America) and has traveled throughout Colombia. 

My family adhered to this philosophy and taught it to my siblings and me: “Before you go to another’s house, know your own.” In my original coutry, I am a Lawyer with specialization in Counseling Addiction. Here in the United States, a Foot Certified Reflexologist, and also a Math teacher in the most amazing place of the Little Sisters of the Assumption "Project Hope" and I enjoy every day of my life. I have written two books in Spanish, and I am planning to write the third in my new language: English. In a world which is complex and moving too fast, we are faced with a choice. We can move ahead with great velocity, but we could also take the time to slow down and take a moment, reflect: what are we doing? What are we feeling? What are our expectations? What are our fears? What are our hopes? I have pursued painting as an artistic way to address this challenge. We need to know the painter’s thinking. For that reason, in every piece of artwork, I included a quote that describes the meaning of the painting. It is my way to build a dialogue between myself the painter and the spectator. With this exhibit I want to reach out to others, to invite them to dare to stop for a moment, to reflect upon what this painting and multicolor text reveals. Read without worrying, be an accomplice with my ideas, and dare to reflect on all the positive things that exist in our universe.

Turtle's Wetland Quest Puppet Show
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Join us on Saturday, April 21st at 10:30 for Turtle’s Wetland Quest a story about the Blanding’s Turtle and her need to find a new safe wetland for herself and her babies.

 

 

“Blanding” the turtle is in search of a new, safe wetland habitat. The little pond where she has lived for many years is no longer safe because a road has been built between her pond and the place where she goes every spring to lay her eggs. Blanding knows what happens when a turtle tries to cross a road! When she meets young Castor the Beaver, who is eager to build a dam and create a new pond, she sees that her problems might be solved! We also meet her friend the Blue Spotted Salamander as well as a little boy named Edward and his nature-loving babysitter Rachel, who teaches him how to look closely at nature for signs of animals and their activities.

This original puppet show by Deborah Costine is recommended for children ages 4 and older accompanied by an adult.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public library

But when they get the chance to reunite for an overseas USO tour, this group of awesome nerds will come together to make some music, and some questionable decisions, one last time.

Author Talks: Meredith Ann Fuller
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

author photoMeredith Ann Fuller's debut novel, Quarry, is set in Quincy. It was named by Kirkus Reviews as one of the Best Indie Books for 2017 and we are lucky enough that she is visiting us to share her inspirations, talk about our storied City, and share excerpts from her book. Copies will be available to purchase, as well. Learn more in this QATV interview

Gracefully and powerfully written and beautifully designed, Meredith Fuller's Quarry is truly a volume made for lovers of books: a compelling tale complemented by dream-images that don't so much illustrate the story as bring it to startling life. Everything one could want in a novel.--Pinckney Benedict, author of Miracle Boy and Other Stories 

From Amazon: In Quincy, Massachusetts, a young girl of Finnish and Irish descent loses her father under traumatic circumstances, and sets out to learn what happened to him Naïve, intuitive, implacable, Rose learns to read landscapes of the natural world and the human heart. She confronts history and its suppression. But it will take personal risk and imaginative reach to understand that she is part of a much larger story of immigrants to America. With edgy ordinariness, Fuller 's narrative gift describes secrets and tragedies, slowly revealing the mythic underbelly of every good story. Resurrecting a lost 19th century tradition, Anderson has designed a stunningly illustrated novel for adult readers of our time.

This queasily funny and suspenseful movie is more than a smirking exercise in ideological deck stacking, and to praise it for its political relevance would be to understate its subtlety and specificity.--Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

Matinee Film: Call Me by Your Name
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

movie stillOver 200 nominations and winner of at least 70 awards including an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.

It’s the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothe?e Chalamet), a precocious 17- year-old American-Italian, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Amira Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows with natural delights. While Elio’s sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart. One day, Oliver (Armie Hammer), a charming American scholar working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.

It’s a tale of totality, not during an eclipse but during a brief conjunction that changes at least one life surprisingly, and one of the greatest pleasures of the movie year.--Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal

Directed by Luca Guadagnino. Starring Amira Casar, Antonio Rimoldi, Armie Hammer, Elena Bucci, Esther Garrel, Marco Sgrosso, Michael Stuhlbarg, Timoth, Vanda Capriolo, and Victoire Du Bois. Theatrically released in 2017. 132 Minutes; Rated R.

Grief After Suicide Workshop
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The suicide of a loved one can have a profound and sometimes devastating impact on the family, friends, and communities left behind. Bereavement after suicide may entail high levels of disorientation, guilt, regret, anger, and trauma. People bereaved by suicide (sometimes called suicide loss survivors) may also struggle with the social stigma placed on suicide. Survivors can be at risk for elevated rates of complicated grief and suicidality themselves. All of this makes surviving the suicide of a loved one a potentially life-changing ordeal that requires all of the resilience that a survivor can muster, and all the support and understanding that family and community can provide. 

This workshop will draw on the presenter’s years of experience as a grief counselor specializing in work with suicide loss survivors to describe the remarkable pathways of healing that survivors and communities can travel. The goal is to help participants to better understand suicide, and the grief that may happen when suicide occurs. It is free, and open to anyone in the community who is concerned about the problem of suicide, and its impact on the members of that community. The workshops are geared towards people who are grieving the loss of a loved one to suicide.

  • Conduct a meaningful dialogue on truth, representation, and how the Presidential administration is dismantling media credibility for their agenda; and
  • Examine the tension between national politics and local issues and how the media is reporting on local issues residents not only care about, but need to know

Teen Film @North Quincy: Arrival
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

movie stillWhen mysterious spacecraft touch down across the globe, an elite team is put together to investigate – including language expert Louise Banks (Amy Adams). Mankind teeters on the verge of global war as everyone scrambles for answers – and to find them, Banks will take a chance that could threaten her life, and quite possibly humanity.

Arrival is a beautifully polished puzzle box of a story whose emotional and cerebral heft should enable it to withstand nit-picky scrutiny. And like all the best sci-fi, it has something pertinent to say about today’s world; particularly about the importance of communication, and how we need to transcend cultural divides and misconceptions if we’re to survive as a species. Dan Jolin, Empire

Directed by Denis Villeneuve. Starring Amy Adams, Forest Whitaker, Jeremy Renner, and Michael Stuhlbarg. Theatrically released in 2016. 116 minutes; Rated PG-13.

Matinee Film @Adams Shore: The Post
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillSteven Spielberg directs Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks in The Post, a thrilling drama about the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post's Katharine Graham (Streep), the first female publisher of a major American newspaper, and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), as they race to catch up with The New York Times to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. Presidents. The two must overcome their differences as they risk their careers - and their very freedom - to help bring long-buried truths to light.

The film is both a gripping and timely celebration of the free press, and, in the remarkable hands of Streep, an exploration of what it meant then (and, perhaps, now) to be a woman thrust into power in an all-male world.--Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times

Directed by Steven Spielberg. Starring Alison Brie, Bob Odenkirk, Bradley Whitford, Bruce Greenwood, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Meryl Streep, Michael Stuhlbarg, Sarah Paulson, Tom Hanks, Tracy Letts, and Zach Woods.

movie stillWhat if you had only one day to change absolutely everything? Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch) has everything: the perfect friends, the perfect guy, and a seemingly perfect future. Then, everything changes. After one fateful night, Sam wakes up with no future at all. Trapped reliving the same day over and over, she begins to question just how perfect her life really was. As she begins to untangle the mystery of a life suddenly derailed, she must also unwind the secrets of the people closest to her, and discover the power of a single day to make a difference, not just in her own life, but in the lives of those around her—before she runs out of time for good.

Director Ry Russo-Young’s drama does manage to smartly dig into the real-world consequences of bullying and arrive at a provocative conclusion by having its main character live her final day on Earth over and over until she gets it right. Brian Truitt, USA Today

Crafts and Conversation
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Have acres of stockinette to do on a sweater, a mile of binding to hand stitch around a quilt or do you just like to craft while chatting with others?  Bring your current project or a UFO that has been lurking around that needs attention for some quality crafting time and conversation.

All hand crafts welcome but we cannot accommodate any project that requires electricity. We will meet in the Colletti Reading Room (where the fiction books are) on the 1st floor of the main library from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on the first Monday of each month.

Please note this is a social group for crafters to work on their own projects not a teaching class.

Feature Film @North Quincy: Molly's Game
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillNominated for many awards, including an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay, Molly's Game is the true story of Molly Bloom a beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents wielding automatic weapons. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer Charlie Jaffey, who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe.

Few actors on the planet can shift gears as effortlessly as Chastain, who perfectly captures Molly’s chameleon-like ability to adapt to situations and to rationalize her worst behavior.--Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

Directed by Aaron Sorkin. Starring Angela Gots, Bill Camp, Bo Martyn, Brian d'Arcy James, Chris O'Dowd, Graham Greene, Idris Elba, J.C. MacKenzie, Jeremy Strong, Jessica Chastain, Joe Keery, Jon Bass, Kevin Costner, Madison McKinley, Michael Cera, Natalie Krill, Rachel Skarsten, and Samantha Isler. Theatrically released in 2017. 140 Minutes; Rated R.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.

The group meets in the atrium near the café—-just look for the Booked for Lunch sign on the table. Drop in anytime and check out this friendly group!
