Flood Plain Modeling in Quincy
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

mapIn recent years, the methods that FEMA uses to determine the potential extent of Flooding in Quincy have come under scrutiny from the general public. In some cases FEMA ignores certain robust shoreline protection structures (seawalls) along Quincy's coastline, which has resulted in a Flood Plain that extends almost one mile from the shoreline. This program will present information about current and new methods of 'Flood Plain Modeling'. Program presenter Dr. Robert Beardsley, Scientist Emeritus at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Insitute has helped develop a state of the art model that can predict storm surge flood levels which can result from winter northeaster, hurricane, or tropical storm events. More information is available on this UMass Dartmouth Marine Ecosystems Dynamics Modeling Laboratory website.

movie stillA 2015 Academy Award winner. U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the SEAL creed to “leave no man behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.

Discover Historic New England: Boston's Floating Hospital
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

S. S. Boston Floating HospitalIn 1894, with the city’s infant mortality rate reaching staggering heights, a barge was commissioned to bring the city’s sickest children out into the harbor where they could be exposed to fresh air and receive desperately needed medical attention—regardless of race, religion, or class. The Floating Hospital provided care to sick children while cruising Boston Harbor for the next thirty-three years. Though Boston’s medical centers are celebrated the world over, the Floating’s history and remarkable contributions to the field of pediatric medicine in America remain largely untold. What began as a charitable effort soon became an innovative medical facility where scientists conducted groundbreaking research that resulted in the creation of infant formula. Doctors aboard the ship (and later on land) led the way in fighting deadly diseases, and its family-centered approach is now a hallmark of pediatric care nationwide.

Dan Bird, the director of volunteers at Floating Hospital for Children, and the foremost expert on the founding and legacy of the hospital will thrill you as he describes how life was for the poorest, youngest Bostonians over a century ago in an era in medicine and altruism that has all but been forgotten.

It’s the tail end of the psychedelic `60s and paranoia is running the day and Doc knows that “love” is another of those words going around at the moment, like “trip” or “groovy,” that’s being way too overused—except this one usually leads to trouble.

Theatrically released in 2014. 148 Minutes; Rated R for drug use throughout, sexual content, graphic nudity, language and some violence.

The Phoenix Book Club for children in grades 5-8 meets monthly to discuss a variety of books.

Each month a new theme or genre is selected. Children choose their own books from a prepared list and share their thoughts on the book they read and the theme or genre. In the summer specific titles are discussed.

Our theme will be: Superheroes and Superpowers. Characters who can fly, use x-ray vision, talk to animals, turn invisible and more have super powers. Were they born with them or do they happen later? Is it magic or science? And do they use their powers for good or evil? Grab a book with a superpowered character (or more than one!) and join us to talk about it and get ready for this summer's theme: Every Hero Has a Story!

Discover Historic New England: Quincy House
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Quincy HouseJoin Historic New England Senior Curator of Collections Nancy Carlisle for an illustrated lecture focusing on recent discoveries and changes at the historic Quincy House.

Built as a country estate in 1770, Quincy House, a National Historic Landmark, was originally surrounded by hundreds of acres of fields and pastures overlooking Quincy Bay. For generations, the Quincys, like their relatives the Adamses, played important roles in the social and political life of Massachusetts. In the nineteenth century, Eliza Susan Quincy collected extensive information about her family and home. She kept journals and persuaded relatives to return heirlooms so that the house would remain a repository of Quincy family history. The interiors of the house have recently undergone radical changes resulting from the study of Eliza Susan Quincy’s materials, including the addition of wallpaper, floor coverings, textiles, and furniture.

This program is complemented by a walking tour: On Saturday, June 20 (rain date June 27) at 10:00 a.m. Sally Owen, coordinator of the Quincy Park Department’s Environmental Treasures program, leads a walking tour of the Wollaston neighborhood surrounding Quincy House. Using historic documents, maps, illustrations, and photographs the walk reconstructs the historic landscape to the period when four generations of Quincys occupied hundreds of acres. Tour departs from Quincy House. Tour the Josiah Quincy House (1770) following the walking tour.

Co-sponsored by the Quincy Park Department's Environmental Treasures program and Historic New England.

Our presenter, Noah Wilson-Rich is the author of The Bee: A Natural History and owner of Best Bees, a company that offers beekeeping services. Copies of his book will be available for purchase and signing after the presentation.

movie stillMeet the Weiss family, who are making their way in Hollywood rife with money, fame, envy, and relentless hauntings. Stafford Weiss (John Cusack) is a famed TV self-help therapist with an A-list celebrity clientele. Meanwhile, Cristina Weiss (Olivia Williams) has her work cut out managing the career of their disaffected child-star son, Benjie (Evan Bird), a fresh graduate of rehab at age 13. Yet unbeknownst to them, another member of the Weiss family has arrived in town - mysteriously scarred and tormented Agatha (Mia Wasikowska), just released from a psych ward and ready to start again. She soon works her way into a friendship with a limo driver (Robert Pattinson) and becomes personal assistant to unraveling actress Havana Segrand (Julianne Moore), who is beset by the ghost of her legendary mother, Clarice (Sarah Gadon). But Agatha is on a quest for redemption - and even in this realm of the artificial, and the unearthly, she's determined to find it, no matter what it takes.

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

movie stillBeca is that girl who'd rather listen to what's coming out of her headphones than what's coming out of you. Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together. When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college a cappella. This could wind up either the coolest thing they'll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both.

"It's the kind of silly you can only get away with when your writing is very smart. A little bit odd and very, very funny. " - Empire

Directed by Jason Moore. Anna Camp, Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, and Rebel Wilson. Theatrically released in 2012. 112 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for sexual material, language and drug references.

Concert on the Lawn: Lenny Solomon Band
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Lenny SolomonLenny Solomon will be joined by his band to present a fabulous evening of music. A seasoned singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Lenny Solomon's style has been compared to early Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, and Jerry Jeff Walker. Solomon began his career in the late 1960s. A fixture at the now defunct Idler Coffeehouse in Harvard Square, Cambridge, he regularly performed there on Friday nights for over eight years. The Idler was a training ground for songwriters such as Geoff Bartley, Paul Rishell, Spider John Koerner, and Ric Ocasek. During these years as a solo performer he shared bills with many touring performers including Chris Smither, Carolyn Hester, Bonnie Raitt, and Spider John. For many years music lay in the background of his life.

From the 1980s through the mid-1990s, Solomon continued to write songs, but rarely performed in public. He chose rather to raise his family and work in environmental research at Harvard University. In 1997 Solomon got back into performing and formed a folk/country band appropriately enough called Solomon. Performing his original material, Solomon has released one EP and four CDs. More information is available on his website, www.solomonband.com.

Go Places @your library: Iran
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

IRAN - Persian Glory and Islamic Revolution

With a history dating 2,500 years, the Persian Empire was the largest of ancient times, extending from Central Asia to north Africa. The legacy of this power and wealth is manifest in the stunning tiled architecture of mosques and secular mansions, the distinctively spiced cuisine, the arts and crafts including arguably the world’s most beautiful rugs, and the diverse people who comprised the Empire as invaders or subjects. Iran’s recent history is marked by religious rule following the 1979 Islamic revolution. Barry Pell traveled nearly 4,000 miles through the country’s magnificent landscape, visiting historic cities and monuments, and meeting with Iranian people who openly shared opinions about their lives and relations with America. This program will be accompanied by Mr. Pell’s photography.
