    Contact: Amy Hindle   781-982-2139   ablib@ocln.org
   

The Abington Public Library will welcome mentalist Rory Raven on Monday Oct. 23 at 7:00 PM.   A mentalist is a theatrical mind-reader, a performer who, using a variety of techniques, is able to produce results that would only seem possible by psychic or paranormal means.  Rory’s show, called Brainstorming:  an Act of Mentalism, is an interactive stage mind-reading show.  Minds are read, spoons are bent, and volunteers test their own “powers”. 

Rory Raven is not a psychic.  His skill set includes knowledge of subtle psychological principals and the quirks of human behavior, quick thinking and a good memory.  He is also interested in suggestion, non-verbal communication, and the so-called trance state.  All of these interests, combined with ideas borrowed from stage magicians will be explored during Rory’s show, Brainstorming:  An Act of Mentalism.  

This program is appropriate for adults and teens.  Registration is not necessary for this event.    Questions may be directed to Children's Librarian Amy Hindle or Library Director Deborah Grimmett at 781-982-2139, or via email at ablib@ocln.org.

    Contact: Deborah Grimmett   781-982-2139   ablib@ocln.org
   

The Abington Public Library will welcome best-selling author Kate Clifford Larson on Wednesday November 8 at 7:00 PM.  Larson’s book, Rosemary, The Hidden Kennedy Daughter spent ten weeks on the New York Times Best Seller list and was the 2016 winner of the Massachusetts Book Award for Non-Fiction.  The author will speak about the life of her subject, Rosemary Kennedy.  Rosemary was the eldest Kennedy daughter and the sister of John F. Robert and Edward Kennedy.  She was intellectually disabled; a fact which was hidden by her glamorous and achievement oriented family.  Kate Clifford Larson meticulously researched Rosemary’s life, including letters she wrote from boarding school, and the author presents her tragic life in a compassionate and fascinating style.       

Dr. Larson is the author of three critically acclaimed biographies.  She holds two degrees from Simmons College, an MBA from Northeastern University, and a Ph.D. from the University of New Hampshire. She lives in Winchester, Massachusetts.  Copies of Rosemary, The Hidden Kennedy Daughter will be available for purchase and author signing at the conclusion of the program.  This program is provided courtesy of the author and the Friends of the Library.    

Registration is required for this event and will begin on Monday October 16.  Space is available for 75 registered participants.  Questions about this program may be addressed to Library Director Deborah Grimmett at 781-982-2139 or via email at ablib@ocln.org

We are pleased to welcome Supervisory Park Ranger Alan S. Banks from the Frederick Law Olmstead National Historical Site to speak about Olmstead's landscape architecture projects in Massachusetts, and in Chicago at the in 1893, as featured in Erik Larson's book Devil in the White City.  The firm Frederick Law Olmsted founded over a century ago was involved in over 1,200 landscape architecture projects throughout Massachusetts, ranging from expansive 500-acre public parks to intimate private gardens. One of its greatest achievements is a six-mile "emerald necklace" of ponds, parks, and parkways that winds its way through Boston. This one-hour illustrated lecture will sample this rich landscape legacy and explore the ideas that shaped some of the most treasured places in Massachusetts. Biographical Note Alan S. Banks oversees the historical interpretation of Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site in Brookline, Massachusetts. During the last 25 years he has researched and developed a variety of landscape walking tours, lectures and presentations on the Olmsteds and their work across the country. In 2013, he was an invited speaker at the Appalachian Institute at Biltmore Estate in North Carolina and later that year he traveled to Milwaukee to speak on Olmsted-designed, Lake Park. Last year he was the keynote speaker at the regional meeting of the American Society of Landscape Architects in Atlanta.

Registration is not required for this program; 75 adults and teens (age sixteen and older please) will be accomodated at this event.
