Art Exhibit: Morocco - In Living Color
9:00 AM - 9:00 PM

Fahey photograph of a Moroccan girlMorocco – In Living Color captures impressions of the people, culture, landscape and architecture of Morocco. The exhibit leads the viewer on a diverse journey through Morocco, from the exotic markets of Marrakesh, to the narrow alleys of the ancient scholarly city of Fez, to native Berber villages, and to a camel safari in the Sahara desert.

Culturally and linguistically, Morocco has been impacted over the centuries by both European (especially Spain and France) and Arabic cultures. Although influenced by the spice of these distinct flavors and of modern civilization on the traditional ways of life, Morocco maintains its own unique identity. Maureen's images of the Moroccan people capture the cultural diversity of this fascinating country. The photographs have been printed using a pressurized heat process on pearlescent metallic medium which intensifies the beauty of the colors. The presentation on high quality canvas allows the images to be displayed without a layer of glass separating the viewer from the image, thereby heightening the sensation of being present in the picture.

A native of Washington D.C. now residing in Milton, Maureen began her photographic explorations with black-and-white film during high school in Heidelberg Germany. After graduating from Harvard University she pursued a career in government-assisted and commercial real estate before becoming a full time travel photographer in 2011. She is a member of the Milton Art Center, South Shore Camera Club (where her work has received several first place awards), Griffin Museum of Photography, and is a juried member of the Russell Gallery at the Plymouth Center for the Arts. Her work can be seen on her website.

A special reception with the artist will be held in the gallery on Sunday, April 6 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Feature Film @North Quincy: Hunger Games - Catching Fire
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillThe Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen returns home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a Victor's Tour of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell), a competition that could change Panem forever.

"Exceptional entertainment, a spectacle with a good mind and a pounding heart." - Wall Street Journal

"Pop-culture escapism can be thrilling when dished out by experts. Katniss is a character worth a handful of sequels. And Lawrence lights up the screen. You'll follow her anywhere." - Rolling Stone

Directed by Francis Lawrence. Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Theatrically released in 2013. 146 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some frightening images, thematic elements, a suggestive situation and language.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.

Deep Cover Black Ops: An inside look
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Leo J Maloney and his 1934 Ford Custom LimoGet an Inside Look at the Life of a Deep Cover Black Operative. Leo J. Maloney was born in Massachusetts, where he spent his childhood and graduated from Northeastern University. While in the army, he was recruited to become a deep cover Black Ops contractor for a clandestine government agency. He was assigned to highly secretive missions throughout the world. As an independent contractor, he was never required to accept a particular assignment, but rather selected ones that he determined were in the best interest of the country.

While working in the secretive world of black ops, Leo operated several "cover" businesses, primarily working a classic car broker, as well as owning a promotions company, and a detective agency. In the 1970's he served as a municipal police officer (patrol, motorcycle, and detective) and was also assigned to the New England Organized Crime Intelligence Bureau - Narcotics Division. After leaving his career in black ops, Leo continued several of his cover businesses, and also pursued an acting career. He has 10 movies to his credit both as an actor and behind the camera as a producer, technical advisor, and assistant director.

Leo incorporated many of his experiences into his first novel, Termination Orders, released in September 2012. The 2nd book in the Dan Morgan thriller series, Silent Assassin, was released in August 2013. Copies of both books will be available for purchase at the event. More information about Leo J Maloney can be found on his website.

Feature Film @North Quincy: Saving Mr. Banks
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillWhen Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ Mary Poppins, he made them a promise—one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney's plans for the adaptation. However, Travers becomes increasingly immovable and the rights begin to move further away from Disney's grasp. It is only when he reaches into his own childhood that Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they set Mary Poppins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.

"An intoxicating kiddie cocktail for young-at-heart adults, inspired by a Disney fairy tale based on fact." - RogerEbert.com

"Saving Mr. Banks transcends its corporate pedigree to become a great Disney movie about making a Disney movie." - New York Daily News

Directed by John Lee Hancock. Starring Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks. Theatrically released in 2013. 125 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for thematic elements including some unsettling images.

Celebrate our Oceans: (Movie) Ocean Frontiers II: A New England Story for Sustaining the Sea
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Ocean Frontiers DVDOcean Frontiers II: A New England Story for Sustaining the Sea.

Following on the heels of the award-winning Ocean Frontiers, Green Fire brings you face to face with those now embarking on the nation’s first multi-state ocean plan. Off the shores of New England, in a region steeped in old maritime tradition, comes a modern wave of big ships, energy industries, and a changing climate, now testing the limits of an already crowded sea. But in a pioneering trial of far-sighted planning—pushed by blueprints for offshore wind energy—old residents and new are coming together to keep their ocean and livelihoods alive. Ocean Frontiers II is an inspiring story of citizens working together for healthier economies and healthier seas across New England.

This 45 minute film will be followed by a discussion. Representatives from local organizations working to protect our oceans will be present to provide insight and talk more about their work.

movie stillPractice your English. Come watch and discuss a movie!

On the last Monday of every month, from October to June, intermediate-level English speakers gather to watch and talk about movies together. No registration is required. Please feel free to bring a snack.

On April 28 we will watch and discuss Ghostbusters. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson star as a quartet of Manhattan-based "paranormal investigators". When their government grants run out, the former three go into business as The Ghostbusters, later hiring Hudson on. They fight off an army of unfriendly spirits, conjured up by a long-dead Babylonian demon and "channelled" through Sigourney Weaver and nerdish Rick Moranis. The climax is a glorious sendup of every Godzilla movie ever made. Who'd ever dream that the chubby, cheery Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man would turn out to be the most malevolent threat ever faced by New York City?

ESL Monday Movies are part of our English Talk Time program. For more information call 617-376-3295 or email quenglishtalk@ocln.org.

tunnel-shot25 years ago Boston Harbor was the filthiest in the nation - the fins were literally rotting off of the fish. Today we have the cleanest urban harbor in America, but it came at a deadly price. On July 21, 1999, five men were sent into a dark, airless, miles-long tunnel, hundreds of feet below the ocean, to do a nearly impossible job. Come learn the human cost of the clean up of Boston Harbor from Neil Swidey, author of Trapped Under the Sea: One Engineering Marvel, Five Men, and a Disaster Ten Miles Into the Darkness. His first book, The Assist, was a Boston Globe bestseller that was named one of the best books of the year by The Washington Post.

Infant and Toddler Mental Health Training
9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

This is Part 2 of a two part series of workshops designed to introduce participants to core principles of infant and toddler mental health. Understanding these principles helps to strengthen our work with infants, toddlers, their parents and other caregivers. These principles include:

  • Typical social-emotional development and its connection to learning
  • The importance of emerging capacities for self-regulation
  • The importance of all relationships that interface with young children (e.g. parent-child, child-child, child-caregiver, parent-caregiver, parent/caregiver-administration)
  • Factors that contribute to risk and resiliency and why it's essential to consider ways to cultivate resiliency in young children and families.

Feature Film: 12 Years a Slave
6:30 PM - 8:45 PM

movie stillBased on an incredible true story of one man's fight for survival and freedom. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender), as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity. In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon's chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) forever alters his life. Winner of three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, 2013.

"The genius of 12 Years a Slave is its insistence on banal evil, and on terror, that seeped into souls, bound bodies and reaped an enduring, terrible price." - The New York Times

Directed by Steve McQueen. Starring Alfre Woodard, Benedict Cumberbatch, Brad Pitt, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Garret Dillahunt, Michael Fassbender, Michael K. Williams, Paul Dano, Paul Giamatti, and Sarah Paulson. Theatrically released in 2013. 134 Minutes; Rated R for violence/cruelty, some nudity and brief sexuality.

Phoenix Book Club for grades 5-8
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Phoenix Book Club for children in grades 5-8 meets on the second Tuesday of each month to discuss a variety of books.

Just because it looks like a picture book, does that mean it's just for little kids? Of course not! Older readers can enjoy a picture book too, and fortunately for us there are a number of picture books written specifically for older readers. We have a special section for these books: Whether it's because the story is longer than a typical picture book or the story and subject are more appropriate or interesting for older kids, take a look at our Oversize shelves to find something interesting.

Don't worry if you're new to the group. We're always happy to meet new readers!

movie stillIn the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk. Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. This screening will be followed by a question and answer session with members of the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary and the Quincy Climate Action Network.

Crime by the Book: A Murder in Wellesley
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Dirk Greineder photograph

The Greineder family seemed picture-perfect: a rock-solid 31-year marriage and three successful children. But on Halloween, 1999, Dr. Dirk Greineder and his wife, May, took their dog for a walk in the woods near their home in Wellesley; hours later, May was dead with a fractured skull and multiple stab wounds. Dirk, a prominent physician, became the focus of the investigation, which uncovered unsettling details about his secret history with hard core pornography and prostitutes.

Learn more about this bizarre, horrific true crime from the co-authors of A Murder in Wellesley: The Inside Story of an Ivy-League Doctor's Double Life, His Slain Wife, and the Trial That Gripped the NationBoston Herald reporter Tom Farmer and former Massachusetts State Police detective Marty Foley, a key investigator in the case. Copies of their book will be available for purchase and signing at the event.

Invisible Stars: women in broadcasting
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Invisible StarsWomen have played a pivotal role in broadcasting since radio really began in the 1920s, both on and off the air. Local historian Donna L. Halper (also a professor at Lesley University) will address the question of whether women are in fact no longer invisible in electronic media and provide an assessment of where progress for women (in society as well as broadcasting) can be seen, and where progress appears totally stalled.

Discover Historic New England: Lost Boston
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Lost BostonA nostalgic journey back in time to visit some of the disappeared buildings and places in all their grandeur, before the wrecking ball and decline set in.

Author of over 6o books on Boston, the neighborhoods and surrounding cities and towns, Anthony Mitchell Sammarco will speak to us about Boston landmarks that have disappeared as the result of fire, neglect and urban renewal. In his new book Lost Boston he includes fascinating essays with evocative photographs of once popular places such as the Howard Athenaeum, the Boston Garden, the City Point Aquarium and the Boston Opera House. He also includes the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Perkins School for the Blind and the Horace Mann School for the Deaf, Mechanic Arts High School and Girl’s High School. From places of entertainment to places of detention, from lost squares to lost neighborhoods, mansions and places of worship this lavishly illustrated lecture will revisit many of Boston’s now lost landmarks, and explain their once prominent place in the city.

After Anthony’s talk he will sign copies of his new book Lost Boston which is part of Anova Books, the London -based publisher whose series includes Lost New York, Lost Chicago, Lost Washington, DC and the incredible Lost Las Vegas.

Books will be available to purchase for $18.95.
