    Contact: Kim Butler   978-388-8148   kbutler@amesburylibrary.org
   

Have you ever sat and wondered about the Oscars and how it all started? Do you tune in every year to see who wins an award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences? Have you ever dressed up in your formal wear to watch the Academy Awards? If you have, then join Frank Mandosa as he presents "The Academy Awards - The Good, the Bad, and the Outrageous."  Every year, the Academy hands out its prestigious Oscar statuette to those performers, directors, writers and other artists who play a role in making movie magic happen. But what is the purpose of these awards? Do they really reflect quality of filmmaking? Are they nothing but empty, ego-driven contests? And what about the show itself; what makes it infinitely fun to watch as celebrities tear up during their acceptance speeches, scowl when their names are not called, or even bring personal politics to the festivities? Come and take a look at some of Oscar's most memorable (and in some cases, infamous!) moments through clips of previous telecasts, behind-the-scenes trivia, and a look at the latest round of nominees. Brush up on your Academy Awards knowledge to win that office pool, and be automatically entered in a free raffle!

Mandosa's presentation not only includes a slideshow equipped with video clips of past Oscars telecasts, and a trivia quiz of the current nominee list, but it also includes a raffle after his presentation. Everyone will get a free raffle ticket as they arrive at the program. Mandosa is a full-time high school English teacher with a lifelong love for cinema. Since 2012, he has been "presenting" or "lecturing" on a wide variety of film-related topics. He has hosted Oscar night parties and has taught courses in cinema at Project Contemporary Competitiveness (PCC) and in the high school classroom.

Space is limited, sign up required.

This program is funded by the Friends of the Amesbury Public Library

    Location: APL Teen Lounge
        There are 25 spaces available.

This month we are reading: A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki

Summary: In Tokyo, sixteen-year-old Nao has decided there’s only one escape from her aching loneliness and her classmates’ bullying. But before she ends it all, Nao first plans to document the life of her great grandmother, a Buddhist nun who’s lived more than a century. A diary is Nao’s only solace—and will touch lives in ways she can scarcely imagine.

Across the Pacific, we meet Ruth, a novelist living on a remote island who discovers a collection of artifacts washed ashore in a Hello Kitty lunchbox—possibly debris from the devastating 2011 tsunami. As the mystery of its contents unfolds, Ruth is pulled into the past, into Nao’s drama and her unknown fate, and forward into her own future.

Full of Ozeki’s signature humor and deeply engaged with the relationship between writer and reader, past and present, fact and fiction, quantum physics, history, and myth, A Tale for the Time Being is a brilliantly inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home.  

Registration is not needed: all are welcome

Books are available at the Circulation Desk

This month we are reading: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman

Summary: A middle-aged man returns to his childhood home to attend a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl, Lettie Hempstock, and her mother and grandmother. He hasn’t thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she’d claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse where she once lived, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.

Registration is not needed: all are welcome

Books are available at the Circulation Desk

Ted Reinstein returns to the Amesbury Public Library to talk about his latest book "Wicked Pissed: New England's Most Famous Feuds." From sports to politics, from food to finance, from aviation to engineering, to bitter disputes over boundaries, New England’s feuds have peppered the region’s life for centuries. They’ve been raw and rowdy, sometimes high-minded and humorous, and, in a place renowned for its deep sense of history, often long-running and legendary. Ted Reinstein, a native New Englander and local writer, offers fascinating stories from the history of New England and brings to life many of the fights, spats, and arguments that have, in many ways, shaped the region. Reinstein has been a reporter for WCVB-TV Boston’s Chronicle since 1997. In addition, he is a regular contributor for the station’s political roundtable show and writes a weekly opinion column. He is also the author of New England Notebook.

We have 3 guest speakers this year.

Tom Toohey, will present a new presentation on researching your Irish family history.

Tom Toohey’s parents were great storytellers. When they passed away he published their stories in a two-volume book entitled Images of Other Lives. In the 1990’s Tom began to study genealogy in a more serious way. He became interested in learning about the lives of his grandfathers who came from Ireland.  In 1994 Tom traveled to Ireland for the first time. During that trip he started tracing all of his Irish ancestors. Since then he has made twelve trips to Ireland and has discovered most of the home places of his ancestors. Along the way he has had many fantastic adventures. To aid his search Tom joined TIARA, the Irish Ancestral Research Association, a research group that meets at Boston College. He wrote articles for the TIARA newsletter and eventually became the TIARA vice president. Tom is also active in the Chelmsford Genealogy Club. Tom has a B.S. from the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and a M.M. from the University of Hartford. He was a teacher for forty years and has done many presentations as an adjunct professor, an educational consultant and guest lecturer.

Michael Shorland is the Co-Director of the Family History Center in Exeter , NH.  Michael will present a program on what resources are available at the Family History Center.

What's new in Family Search with Lori Lyn Price.

This month we are reading: Being Mortal: medicine and what matters in the end by Atul Gawande

Summary: Gawande, a practicing surgeon, addresses his profession's ultimate limitation, arguing that quality of life is the desired goal for patients and families. Gawande offers examples of freer, more socially fulfilling models for assisting the infirm and dependent elderly, and he explores the varieties of hospice care to demonstrate that a person's last weeks or months may be rich and dignified.

Full of eye-opening research and riveting storytelling, Being Mortal asserts that medicine can comfort and enhance our experience even to the end, providing not only a good life but also a good end.

This month we are reading: Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger

Summary: Frank begins the season preoccupied with the concerns of any teenage boy, but when tragedy unexpectedly strikes his family—which includes his Methodist minister father; his passionate, artistic mother; Juilliard-bound older sister; and wise-beyond-his-years kid brother—he finds himself thrust into an adult world full of secrets, lies, adultery, and betrayal, suddenly called upon to demonstrate a maturity and gumption beyond his years. 

Told from Frank’s perspective forty years after that fateful summer, Ordinary Grace is a brilliantly moving account of a boy standing at the door of his young manhood, trying to understand a world that seems to be falling apart around him. It is an unforgettable novel about discovering the terrible price of wisdom and the enduring grace of God.

This month we are reading: House of Thieves by Charles Belfoure

Summary:In 1886 New York, a respectable architect shouldn't have any connection to the notorious gang of thieves and killers that rules the underbelly of the city. But when John Cross's son racks up an unfathomable gambling debt to Kent's Gents, Cross must pay it back himself. All he has to do is use his inside knowledge of high society mansions and museums to craft a robbery even the smartest detectives won't solve. The take better include some cash too ?the bigger the payout, the faster this will be over.

With a newfound talent for sniffing out vulnerable and lucrative targets, Cross becomes invaluable to the gang. But Cross's entire life has become a balancing act, and it will only take one mistake for it all to come crashing down ?and for his family to go down too.
