misc_none 1:00 PM  -  2:30 PM Deepak Singh Author Talk Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

In How May I Help You? Deepak Singh chronicles his downward mobility as an immigrant to a small town in Virginia. Armed with an MBA from India, Singh can get only a minimum-wage job in an electronics store. Every day he confronts unfamiliar American mores, from strange idioms to deeply entrenched racism. Telling stories through the unique lens of an initially credulous outsider who is “fresh off the plane,” Singh learns about the struggles of his colleagues: Ron, a middle-aged African-American man trying to keep his life intact despite health concerns; Jackie, a young African-American woman diligently attending school after work; and Cindy, whose matter-of-fact attitude helps Deepak adapt to his job and his new life. How May I Help You? is an incisive take on life in the United States and a reminder that the stories of low-wage employees can bring candor and humanity to debates about work, race, and immigration.

Deepak Singh is the author of two books, Chasing America: Of Lollipops, Night Clubs and Ferocious dogs, and How May I Help You? An Immigrant’s Journey from MBA to Minimum Wage. He has written for print and radio, including outlets such as the New York Times, The Atlantic, The Boston Globe, and NPR, and he’s a frequent contributor to PRI’s The World.

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

Yes, we all know it's the right thing to do. But Michael Kimmel makes the surprising, funny, practical case for treating men and women equally in the workplace and at home. It's not a zero-sum game, but a win-win that will result in more opportunity and more happiness for everybody.

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.

    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.

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.

Take “the Other” to Lunch by Elizabeth Lesser

There's an angry divisive tension in the air that threatens to make modern politics impossible. Elizabeth Lesser explores the two sides of human nature within us (call them "the mystic" and "the warrior”) that can be harnessed to elevate the way we treat each other. She shares a simple way to begin real dialogue — by going to lunch with someone who doesn't agree with you, and asking them three questions to find out what's really in their hearts.

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/.

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.

America's Forgotten Working Class by J.D. Vance

J.D. Vance grew up in a small, poor city in the Rust Belt of southern Ohio, where he had a front-row seat to many of the social ills plaguing America: a heroin epidemic, failing schools, families torn apart by divorce and sometimes violence. In a searching talk that will echo throughout the country's working-class towns, the author details what the loss of the American Dream feels like and raises an important question that everyone from community leaders to policy makers needs to ask: How can we help kids from America's forgotten places break free from hopelessness and live better lives? Vance is the author of the recent bestseller, Hillbilly Elegy.

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.

Everyone is Trans by Ian Harvie  

In this talk, Ian leads us through a provocative exercise, exposing deeply interconnected vulnerabilities around our self-conceptions of gender as they relate to our sexuality. We all have things we would change about ourselves if we could, don’t we? And many of those things correspond to desires to feel more feminine or masculine, don’t they? What happens when we allow ourselves to really see the motivations behind such desires? Ian invites us into a mental/emotional space that has the capacity to reveal, surprise, comfort, and unite. A native Mainer now living in Los Angeles, Ian was the first transgender (female-to-male) standup comic in the country. He began his career in the Portland, Maine, comedy scene more than 13 years ago and has been breaking new ground ever since. You may have seen him co-starring as “Dale” on the Golden Globe and People’s Choice Award-winning TV series TRANSPARENT; on Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore; or on CNN’s Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin. In 2014, with friend and executive producer Margaret Cho, Ian unveiled his first standup comedy special, IAN HARVIE SUPERHERO, which was filmed live at Portland State Company. The film screened at over 25 film festivals worldwide and won several awards. Ian’s unique approach queers the traditionally macho, sex-obsessed world of standup in ways you won’t believe, proving that laughter cuts across all gender identities and ultimately unites us all.

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.

Join us to listen, watch,discuss, and be inspired!  Participants are welcome to bring a brow-bag lunch.

If a Story Moves You, Act On It by Sisonke Msimang

The final screening & discussion will be If a Story Moves You, Act On It by Sisonke Msimang, which is a TED video recorded at the TEDWomen 2016 conference. Stories are necessary, but they're not as magical as they seem, says writer Sisonke Msimang. In this funny and thoughtful talk, Msimang questions our emphasis on storytelling and spotlights the decline of facts. During a critical time when listening has been confused for action, Msimang asks us to switch off our phones, step away from our screens and step out into the real world to create a plan for justice.

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/.

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/. She blogs at https://ellencooney.tumblr.com/.

    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/.

We have appreciated so much the chance to hold our book club the third monday at each month at 1 in the afternoon.  Would it be possible to book the  next whole year?   Each month the third Monday at 1:00 p.m.  for 1 1/2 hours.  I booked through October as that is as far as the computer would let me go,  but i would like to book the whole year if possible.  I wasn't sure if i chose the correct room on the webe-site.  Very thankful for the one you have shared with us  : )

    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.

    Contact: Kali Coles   207-729-0300   info@mainejungcenter.org
   

"The Transforming the Bullying Cycle Through The Expressive Arts Workshop" begins by teaching the four main kinds of bullying, the three major archetypes in the bullying dynamic, and the Inclusion Technique.

In small groups participants then create sculpture collages out of found objects, which express what it feels like to live inside the skin, the heart, and the breath of the archetypes of the bully, the target, and/or the witness-hero. The found objects are taped together, covered with rigid wrap, which is a mask making material, and then painted and decorated. The archetypes are then acted out in an improvisational skit or puppet show, which ends with an illustration of the Inclusion Technique. Performing can bring up the greatest fear as well as the greatest opportunity to experience the transformation of inner obstacles into allies. In bringing sculpture collage archetypes to life through multiple artistic media, participants have a lot of fun as well as have an embodied experience of the medicine of cathartic release, and the liberation of understanding.

This workshop is for adults who are coming of their own free will to artistically explore the inner life of the archetypes of the bully, the target, and the witness-hero and to learn creative techniques to help these soul essences live in peace and joy with one another.

Dr. Maryam Mermey, registered expressive arts therapist, holds a Ph.D. in Arts, Health and Society. She also has an M.A. in Counseling Psychology, a M.Ed. in Arts in Education, and a B.A. in Dance and Poetry.
