    Contact: Reference Desk   725-5242 x510   
   

Introducing...the Fireside Writers, a new writing group in Brunswick!

If you like to write, but need time and a place to do it, please come join us! On any given Friday, from 10-11:30 am, consider coming to a writing session in Brunswick at the Curtis Memorial Library in the beautiful Fireplace Room of the CML's 1904 Building. The concept for the group is simple: 

"I love the quiet that comes over a writing room, and the community that builds from this shared silence. That’s what this writing group is all about. We will gather as writers, simply to write in the quiet company of one another, in one of the library’s coziest spaces – not to critique each other’s work (although of course that’s good practice, too!), but to write fireside, for a dedicated time in an extraordinary place." --Molly McGrath, host of the Fireside Writers

Fireside Writers is a drop-in program (registration is not needed--you can come once, occasionally, or weekly), open to the public, with an open door policy--all abilities and ages are welcome. Free wifi is available. Bring your own notebooks and pens or laptops. A beautiful rug is underfoot, Captain Skolfield's ship in on the mantelpiece, and lamps, buttery leather couches and armchairs, and rocking chairs await you. Portraits of Captain and Mrs. Curtis welcome you. Free coffee is in the lobby, and fires will be lit in the wintertime.

misc_none 5:30 PM  -  6:30 PM Playing With Paint: Vincent Van Gogh Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Due to overwhelming demand last fall, the library will offer a repeat series of free painting classes (Playing with Paint) for the community.   Local artist Maria Castellano-Usery (who also writes the Curtis Creative Spaces blog which can be read at http://curtiscreativespaces.com/) will be teaching the class.  Maria is a well-known artist in the Brunswick area.  She has a wonderful sense of how art is created, what is required to dive into the process, and how to have fun while doing it.

Each class will focus on a different famous artist – Vincent Van Gogh (4/6)), Jackson Pollock (4/13), Georgia O’Keeffe (4/20), and Marc Chagall (4/27).  Maria will talk briefly about the artist and their work and style and then class members will paint their version of one of the artist’s well-known masterpieces - with help from Maria.  We will have music playing from the artist’s time, something good to eat will be provided, and at the end of the evening everyone will take home their very own painting.

 The goal of Playing with Paint is to learn about painting and art, and have fun in the process!  Come by yourself or bring a friend with you – it will be an enjoyable, relaxing evening with some interesting learning mixed into the process.

 

 · The classes are free and all supplies will be provided.

· The classes will run from 5:30 to 7:30pm at the library.

· Acrylic paints will be used.

· Anyone can attend as long as they are 14 years or older.

· Only 12 people will be accepted for each class. Sign up limited to two classes per person, with the option of adding your name to the wait list for the other two classes.

  Please sign up by calling the library’s reference desk at  725-5242, ext. 204 or stop by the desk in person and sign up for the dates of interest to you.

A monthly, introductory-level writing group run by an author of novels and stories, for anyone interested in applying their language skills to creative endeavors. While the meetings will be geared to fiction, poets are welcome too--and so are people who've been (perhaps secretly) working on various writing projects, but could benefit from group exercises and discussions, as well as reading one's work out loud in a supportive, friendly environment. Homework will be given. Elements of writing, such as word use and punctuation, will be in play--and so will the process of finding a voice and a style, then taking the steps to use them.

Ellen Cooney lives in Phippsburg. Her most recent novel, her ninth, is The Mountaintop School for Dogs And Other Second Chances, published in 2015 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Her stories have appeared widely, in The New Yorker and many literary journals. A Massachusetts native, she is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation. She taught creative writing at Boston College and the Harvard Extension School, and as a writer in residence at MIT. In Maine, she was a visiting writer at the University of Maine/Farmington, and now serves as Consulting Editor for the journal The Maine Review. Her website is http://ellencooney.com/.

PaddleQuest 1500,  An Expedition to Inspire Outdoor Desire: Linking the Northern Forest Canoe Trail and Maine Island Trail via Canada OR How I met the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and Survived Violent Storms

Join us as John Connelly shares this journey with us. On June 25th, 2016, he became the first to both canoe the Northern Forest Canoe Trail and kayak the Maine Island Trail, but went a step further connecting them with the Saint John River and Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick, Canada; 1500-miles in 75-days. This solo expedition launched in the Adirondack Mountains on April 16th proved challenging, rewarding, eye-opening and was tracked in real-time by satellite and was followed by thousands online. Find out how he met the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and survived violent storms. Be inspired to seek out these water trails and experience portions of them for yourself.

Connelly’s 75-day trip took him through 2 countries, 4 states, 22 streams, 58 lakes and the North Atlantic. Check out his trip at paddlequest1500.com.

The trip was inspired by Connelly’s recognition of a growing body of evidence that confirms the physical and mental health benefits that come from communing with nature at a time when EPA reports suggest that Americans spend 93% of their lives indoors. Connelly has expressed his hope that his trip can inspire others to increase the time they spend outside, citing research that suggests the profound sense of personal stewardship for natural resources that such contact inspires.

Presentation starts at 7pm. Optional potluck dinner will start at 6pm (please bring a dish to share, help us be green and bring your own cup, plates and silverware). Doors open at 5:30pm. Free and open to the public.

For questions or information, contact Michelle Moody at meamc@micstan.us

Introducing...the Fireside Writers, a new writing group in Brunswick!

If you like to write, but need time and a place to do it, please come join us! On any given Friday, from 10-11:30 am, consider coming to a writing session in Brunswick at the Curtis Memorial Library in the beautiful Fireplace Room of the CML's 1904 Building. The concept for the group is simple: 

"I love the quiet that comes over a writing room, and the community that builds from this shared silence. That’s what this writing group is all about. We will gather as writers, simply to write in the quiet company of one another, in one of the library’s coziest spaces – not to critique each other’s work (although of course that’s good practice, too!), but to write fireside, for a dedicated time in an extraordinary place." --Molly McGrath, host of the Fireside Writers

Fireside Writers is a drop-in program (registration is not needed--you can come once, occasionally, or weekly), open to the public, with an open door policy--all abilities and ages are welcome. Free wifi is available. Bring your own notebooks and pens or laptops. A beautiful rug is underfoot, Captain Skolfield's ship in on the mantelpiece, and lamps, buttery leather couches and armchairs, and rocking chairs await you. Portraits of Captain and Mrs. Curtis welcome you. Free coffee is in the lobby, and fires will be lit in the wintertime.

Due to overwhelming demand last fall, the library will offer a repeat series of free painting classes (Playing with Paint) for the community.   Local artist Maria Castellano-Usery (who also writes the Curtis Creative Spaces blog which can be read at http://curtiscreativespaces.com/) will be teaching the class.  Maria is a well-known artist in the Brunswick area.  She has a wonderful sense of how art is created, what is required to dive into the process, and how to have fun while doing it.

Each class will focus on a different famous artist – Vincent Van Gogh (4/6)), Jackson Pollock (4/13), Georgia O’Keeffe (4/20), and Marc Chagall (4/27).  Maria will talk briefly about the artist and their work and style and then class members will paint their version of one of the artist’s well-known masterpieces - with help from Maria.  We will have music playing from the artist’s time, something good to eat will be provided, and at the end of the evening everyone will take home their very own painting.

 The goal of Playing with Paint is to learn about painting and art, and have fun in the process!  Come by yourself or bring a friend with you – it will be an enjoyable, relaxing evening with some interesting learning mixed into the process.

Introducing...the Fireside Writers, a new writing group in Brunswick!

If you like to write, but need time and a place to do it, please come join us! On any given Friday, from 10-11:30 am, consider coming to a writing session in Brunswick at the Curtis Memorial Library in the beautiful Fireplace Room of the CML's 1904 Building. The concept for the group is simple: 

"I love the quiet that comes over a writing room, and the community that builds from this shared silence. That’s what this writing group is all about. We will gather as writers, simply to write in the quiet company of one another, in one of the library’s coziest spaces – not to critique each other’s work (although of course that’s good practice, too!), but to write fireside, for a dedicated time in an extraordinary place." --Molly McGrath, host of the Fireside Writers

Fireside Writers is a drop-in program (registration is not needed--you can come once, occasionally, or weekly), open to the public, with an open door policy--all abilities and ages are welcome. Free wifi is available. Bring your own notebooks and pens or laptops. A beautiful rug is underfoot, Captain Skolfield's ship in on the mantelpiece, and lamps, buttery leather couches and armchairs, and rocking chairs await you. Portraits of Captain and Mrs. Curtis welcome you. Free coffee is in the lobby, and fires will be lit in the wintertime.

This program gives participants an awareness of the enormity of the crimes committed during the Nazi Holocaust and helps them grasp the fact that thousands of ordinary people participated in perpetrating these crimes, while thousands more stood by as quiet witnesses. The material in this program reminds us of the importance of living in a democracy whose citizens are capable of making informed judgments, not only on behalf of themselves, but on behalf of a larger community.

This program is part of the One Community, One Book initiative.

Sponsored by the Holocaust and Human Rights Center of Maine. Presented by HHRC Executive Director Liz Helitzer, and Program Director David Greenham.

misc_none 5:30 PM  -  6:30 PM Playing With Paint: Marc Chagall Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Due to overwhelming demand last fall, the library will offer a repeat series of free painting classes (Playing with Paint) for the community.   Local artist Maria Castellano-Usery (who also writes the Curtis Creative Spaces blog which can be read at http://curtiscreativespaces.com/) will be teaching the class.  Maria is a well-known artist in the Brunswick area.  She has a wonderful sense of how art is created, what is required to dive into the process, and how to have fun while doing it.

Each class will focus on a different famous artist – Vincent Van Gogh (4/6)), Jackson Pollock (4/13), Georgia O’Keeffe (4/20), and Marc Chagall (4/27).  Maria will talk briefly about the artist and their work and style and then class members will paint their version of one of the artist’s well-known masterpieces - with help from Maria.  We will have music playing from the artist’s time, something good to eat will be provided, and at the end of the evening everyone will take home their very own painting.

 The goal of Playing with Paint is to learn about painting and art, and have fun in the process!  Come by yourself or bring a friend with you – it will be an enjoyable, relaxing evening with some interesting learning mixed into the process.

 

 · The classes are free and all supplies will be provided.

· The classes will run from 5:30 to 7:30pm at the library.

· Acrylic paints will be used.

· Anyone can attend as long as they are 14 years or older.

· Only 12 people will be accepted for each class. Sign up limited to two classes per person, with the option of adding your name to the wait list for the other two classes.

  Please sign up by calling the library’s reference desk at  725-5242, ext. 204 or stop by the desk in person and sign up for the dates of interest to you.

Introducing...the Fireside Writers, a new writing group in Brunswick!

If you like to write, but need time and a place to do it, please come join us! On any given Friday, from 10-11:30 am, consider coming to a writing session in Brunswick at the Curtis Memorial Library in the beautiful Fireplace Room of the CML's 1904 Building. The concept for the group is simple: 

"I love the quiet that comes over a writing room, and the community that builds from this shared silence. That’s what this writing group is all about. We will gather as writers, simply to write in the quiet company of one another, in one of the library’s coziest spaces – not to critique each other’s work (although of course that’s good practice, too!), but to write fireside, for a dedicated time in an extraordinary place." --Molly McGrath, host of the Fireside Writers

Fireside Writers is a drop-in program (registration is not needed--you can come once, occasionally, or weekly), open to the public, with an open door policy--all abilities and ages are welcome. Free wifi is available. Bring your own notebooks and pens or laptops. A beautiful rug is underfoot, Captain Skolfield's ship in on the mantelpiece, and lamps, buttery leather couches and armchairs, and rocking chairs await you. Portraits of Captain and Mrs. Curtis welcome you. Free coffee is in the lobby, and fires will be lit in the wintertime.

LECTURE: 
The personal and collective dimensions of Extremism, with particular consideration of Near-Eastern terrorism.

Starting with 9/11, our century experiences a growing momentum of extremist thinking, movements and actions. We will try to perceive the underlying collective psychic currents as they might belong  to the psychic constellation of modernity. A closer look at Near Eastern and European Terrorism will illustrate these reflections.  
 
Bernard Sartorius, lic. theol. is a Jungian analyst and ordained Swiss Protestant minister. He received his degree in theology from the Univerity of Geneva and completed his analytical training at the C.G. Jung-Institute of Zurich in 1978. He is a supervising training analyst at ISAP Zurich and has private analytical practices in Geneva and Zurich.

A monthly, introductory-level writing group run by an author of novels and stories, for anyone interested in applying their language skills to creative endeavors. While the meetings will be geared to fiction, poets are welcome too--and so are people who've been (perhaps secretly) working on various writing projects, but could benefit from group exercises and discussions, as well as reading one's work out loud in a supportive, friendly environment. Homework will be given. Elements of writing, such as word use and punctuation, will be in play--and so will the process of finding a voice and a style, then taking the steps to use them.

Ellen Cooney lives in Phippsburg. Her most recent novel, her ninth, is The Mountaintop School for Dogs And Other Second Chances, published in 2015 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Her stories have appeared widely, in The New Yorker and many literary journals. A Massachusetts native, she is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation. She taught creative writing at Boston College and the Harvard Extension School, and as a writer in residence at MIT. In Maine, she was a visiting writer at the University of Maine/Farmington, and now serves as Consulting Editor for the journal The Maine Review. Her website is http://ellencooney.com/. She blogs at https://ellencooney.tumblr.com/.

Introducing...the Fireside Writers, a new writing group in Brunswick!

If you like to write, but need time and a place to do it, please come join us! On any given Friday, from 10-11:30 am, consider coming to a writing session in Brunswick at the Curtis Memorial Library in the beautiful Fireplace Room of the CML's 1904 Building. The concept for the group is simple: 

"I love the quiet that comes over a writing room, and the community that builds from this shared silence. That’s what this writing group is all about. We will gather as writers, simply to write in the quiet company of one another, in one of the library’s coziest spaces – not to critique each other’s work (although of course that’s good practice, too!), but to write fireside, for a dedicated time in an extraordinary place." --Molly McGrath, host of the Fireside Writers

Fireside Writers is a drop-in program (registration is not needed--you can come once, occasionally, or weekly), open to the public, with an open door policy--all abilities and ages are welcome. Free wifi is available. Bring your own notebooks and pens or laptops. A beautiful rug is underfoot, Captain Skolfield's ship in on the mantelpiece, and lamps, buttery leather couches and armchairs, and rocking chairs await you. Portraits of Captain and Mrs. Curtis welcome you. Free coffee is in the lobby, and fires will be lit in the wintertime.

Introducing...the Fireside Writers, a new writing group in Brunswick!

If you like to write, but need time and a place to do it, please come join us! On any given Friday, from 10-11:30 am, consider coming to a writing session in Brunswick at the Curtis Memorial Library in the beautiful Fireplace Room of the CML's 1904 Building. The concept for the group is simple: 

"I love the quiet that comes over a writing room, and the community that builds from this shared silence. That’s what this writing group is all about. We will gather as writers, simply to write in the quiet company of one another, in one of the library’s coziest spaces – not to critique each other’s work (although of course that’s good practice, too!), but to write fireside, for a dedicated time in an extraordinary place." --Molly McGrath, host of the Fireside Writers

Fireside Writers is a drop-in program (registration is not needed--you can come once, occasionally, or weekly), open to the public, with an open door policy--all abilities and ages are welcome. Free wifi is available. Bring your own notebooks and pens or laptops. A beautiful rug is underfoot, Captain Skolfield's ship in on the mantelpiece, and lamps, buttery leather couches and armchairs, and rocking chairs await you. Portraits of Captain and Mrs. Curtis welcome you. Free coffee is in the lobby, and fires will be lit in the wintertime.

    Contact: Sarah Brown     sbrown @ curtislibrary.com
   

A monthly, introductory-level writing group run by an author of novels and stories, for anyone interested in applying their language skills to creative endeavors. While the meetings will be geared to fiction, poets are welcome too--and so are people who've been (perhaps secretly) working on various writing projects, but could benefit from group exercises and discussions, as well as reading one's work out loud in a supportive, friendly environment. Homework will be given. Elements of writing, such as word use and punctuation, will be in play--and so will the process of finding a voice and a style, then taking the steps to use them.

Ellen Cooney lives in Phippsburg. Her most recent novel, her ninth, is The Mountaintop School for Dogs And Other Second Chances, published in 2015 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Her stories have appeared widely, in The New Yorker and many literary journals. A Massachusetts native, she is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation. She taught creative writing at Boston College and the Harvard Extension School, and as a writer in residence at MIT. In Maine, she was a visiting writer at the University of Maine/Farmington, and now serves as Consulting Editor for the journal The Maine Review. Her website is http://ellencooney.com/. She blogs at https://ellencooney.tumblr.com/.

Introducing...the Fireside Writers, a new writing group in Brunswick!

If you like to write, but need time and a place to do it, please come join us! On any given Friday, from 10-11:30 am, consider coming to a writing session in Brunswick at the Curtis Memorial Library in the beautiful Fireplace Room of the CML's 1904 Building. The concept for the group is simple: 

"I love the quiet that comes over a writing room, and the community that builds from this shared silence. That’s what this writing group is all about. We will gather as writers, simply to write in the quiet company of one another, in one of the library’s coziest spaces – not to critique each other’s work (although of course that’s good practice, too!), but to write fireside, for a dedicated time in an extraordinary place." --Molly McGrath, host of the Fireside Writers

Fireside Writers is a drop-in program (registration is not needed--you can come once, occasionally, or weekly), open to the public, with an open door policy--all abilities and ages are welcome. Free wifi is available. Bring your own notebooks and pens or laptops. A beautiful rug is underfoot, Captain Skolfield's ship in on the mantelpiece, and lamps, buttery leather couches and armchairs, and rocking chairs await you. Portraits of Captain and Mrs. Curtis welcome you. Free coffee is in the lobby, and fires will be lit in the wintertime.

Introducing...the Fireside Writers, a new writing group in Brunswick!

If you like to write, but need time and a place to do it, please come join us! On any given Friday, from 10-11:30 am, consider coming to a writing session in Brunswick at the Curtis Memorial Library in the beautiful Fireplace Room of the CML's 1904 Building. The concept for the group is simple: 

"I love the quiet that comes over a writing room, and the community that builds from this shared silence. That’s what this writing group is all about. We will gather as writers, simply to write in the quiet company of one another, in one of the library’s coziest spaces – not to critique each other’s work (although of course that’s good practice, too!), but to write fireside, for a dedicated time in an extraordinary place." --Molly McGrath, host of the Fireside Writers

Fireside Writers is a drop-in program (registration is not needed--you can come once, occasionally, or weekly), open to the public, with an open door policy--all abilities and ages are welcome. Free wifi is available. Bring your own notebooks and pens or laptops. A beautiful rug is underfoot, Captain Skolfield's ship in on the mantelpiece, and lamps, buttery leather couches and armchairs, and rocking chairs await you. Portraits of Captain and Mrs. Curtis welcome you. Free coffee is in the lobby, and fires will be lit in the wintertime.

A monthly, introductory-level writing group run by an author of novels and stories, for anyone interested in applying their language skills to creative endeavors. While the meetings will be geared to fiction, poets are welcome too--and so are people who've been (perhaps secretly) working on various writing projects, but could benefit from group exercises and discussions, as well as reading one's work out loud in a supportive, friendly environment. Homework will be given. Elements of writing, such as word use and punctuation, will be in play--and so will the process of finding a voice and a style, then taking the steps to use them.

Ellen Cooney lives in Phippsburg. Her most recent novel, her ninth, is The Mountaintop School for Dogs And Other Second Chances, published in 2015 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Her stories have appeared widely, in The New Yorker and many literary journals. A Massachusetts native, she is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation. She taught creative writing at Boston College and the Harvard Extension School, and as a writer in residence at MIT. In Maine, she was a visiting writer at the University of Maine/Farmington, and now serves as Consulting Editor for the journal The Maine Review. Her website is http://ellencooney.com/.

misc_none 5:30 PM  -  7:00 PM Creative Writing Group Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Sarah Brown     sbrown @ curtislibrary.com
   

A monthly, introductory-level writing group run by an author of novels and stories, for anyone interested in applying their language skills to creative endeavors. While the meetings will be geared to fiction, poets are welcome too--and so are people who've been (perhaps secretly) working on various writing projects, but could benefit from group exercises and discussions, as well as reading one's work out loud in a supportive, friendly environment. Homework will be given. Elements of writing, such as word use and punctuation, will be in play--and so will the process of finding a voice and a style, then taking the steps to use them.

Ellen Cooney lives in Phippsburg. Her most recent novel, her ninth, is The Mountaintop School for Dogs And Other Second Chances, published in 2015 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Her stories have appeared widely, in The New Yorker and many literary journals. A Massachusetts native, she is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Massachusetts Artists Foundation. She taught creative writing at Boston College and the Harvard Extension School, and as a writer in residence at MIT. In Maine, she was a visiting writer at the University of Maine/Farmington, and now serves as Consulting Editor for the journal The Maine Review. Her website is http://ellencooney.com/. She blogs at https://ellencooney.tumblr.com/.
