Keeping it in the Family.

Parent - child writing duos are an increasingly common phenomenom.  We're taking a look at two of these more recent pairs.  First up, Hilma and Meg Wolitzer.

 Four friends are forced to confront the choices they've made in opting out of their careers--until a series of startling events shatters the  peace and, for some of them, changes the landscape entirely.      

                                                                               From the publisher's description.

 

 

Copies of the book will bea available after 6/12/2017.

The Ridley Township Public Library is offering a free Basic Meditation Workshop led by Rich Conti from the Schoolhouse Center Meditation Group. Participants are free to stay for the entire 2 hours, or may choose to leave after 1 hour or more. In this workshop,  you will learn all you need to practice meditation on your own, at home. 

 Meditation requires no extensive training, preparation or effort. It is simple, easy and anyone can do it. A simple commitment of a few minutes a day can make a real difference in a person’s life by helping to clear the mind and reduce stress. The best way to learn about meditation is for someone to show you what to do and how to do it.

This is a health literacy program of the PA Forward Initiative.

JFK's assassination on November 22, 1963 has often been cited as the cause of the Beatles' sudden popularity in the United States. The logic: Kennedy's assassination made America sad, then the Beatles made it happy again. But, this logic is overly simplistic. The real answer is that Kennedy's life and eath inadvertently primed the nation for the Beatles' arrival and success. This 60 minute mulitmedia presentation will explain how and why. It will be presented by Aaaron Krerowicz, the only professional Beatles scholar in the United States. This is a Civic and Social Literacy Program of the PA Forward Initiative.

    Contact: Debbie   610-494-5877   debbie@astonlibrary.org
   

Since 1989, Puppets Pizzazz has been successfully entertaining children of all ages. Each show is carefully geared to entertain, excite, and educate children from about one year old to 10 years old. The show is set up as a variety show with over twenty-five professional hand puppets used to perform nine funny songs and humorous skits. In between each act, there is an MC puppet who comes out and tells jokes and riddles.

 

Each song or skit is only about two or three minutes long, so it is easy to hold the children’s attention including toddlers! What makes Puppets Pizzazz puppet shows different is that they take popular music from today’s artists and they put a satirical spin on it.
