misc_none 7:00 PM Raising Money Savvy Kids Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Dover Public Library   603-516-6050   libraryquestions@dover.nh.gov
   

   

On Wednesday May 4th at 7pm, Financial Advisor Kathryn L. McKenna of Morgan Stanley will present a FREE program called “Raising Money Savvy Kids.” Raising Money Savvy Kids is more than just having the uncomfortable “Money Talk.” It is about teaching children how to become conscientious savers, informed investors, smart consumers, motivated workers, and generous givers.  

 

Join us in learning how to help your children earn, save, spend, give, and borrow responsibly. We will discuss the benefits of having children work for an allowance and encouraging them to work for others. We will emphasize the importance of saving and investing responsibly for a “rainy day” and the differences between needs, wants, and wishes for spending. Through budgeting, we will explore the discipline necessary to accomplish a goal. We will learn how to involve children in charitable decisions from a young age that will teach them to give with compassion and selflessness. We will also discuss the factors to consider before borrowing money to instill a careful financial decision-making process.

 

Addressing these issues early will help your child avoid unhealthy behaviors and learn the skills necessary to set healthy priorities instead.

 

Unsure of how to approach the conversation? Let’s learn the framework and factors that go into have the “Money Talk.” It is never too early to teach your children the benefits of financial independence and good decision making.

The story of the biggest theft in art history.

Author and former Boston Globe Spotlight reporter and editor Stephen Kurkjian to speak about his book “Master Thieves” at Dover Public Library May 23rd at 6:30pm

It is a case defined by superlatives - the largest art theft in history, carrying the world’s largest reward offer, longer on the FBI’s list of biggest unsolved art crimes than any other save one. Two men disguised as Boston Police officers trick their way into the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum after midnight, tie up the two night watchmen and make off with an estimated half billion dollars worth of artwork including three works by Rembrandt and a Vermeer masterpiece.

Now 25 years after the theft, Stephen Kurkjian who was the principal reporter on the case for The Boston Globe for years, has written a gripping account of the still-unsolved heist of a quarter century ago. In MASTER THIEVES Kurkjian reveals how the two criminal gangs battling for control of the Boston under-world knew of the museum’s poor security and that one had a motive to pull off the theft - to fashion an exchange that would result in the release of its leader from federal prison.

 

A Boston native, Stephen Kurkjian spent nearly 40 years as an editor and reporter for The Boston Globe before retiring in 2007. During his career, he shared in three Pulitzer Prizes and won more than 20 regional and national reporting awards.

Educated in the Boston public schools, Kurkjian graduated from Boston Latin School in 1962. He majored in English Literature at Boston University and earned his law degree from Suffolk University Law School in 1970.

Kurkjian was a founding member of The Globe’s investigative Spotlight Team, and its editor for 1979-1986. In 1986, he was named chief of The Globe's Washington Bureau and for six years oversaw the work of the paper's 10 reporters in Washington. In addition, while at the bureau he covered the Supreme Court, the Justice Department and the Bush White House during the first war in Iraq.

Returning to Boston in the early 1990s, he completed numerous investigative projects from The Globe newsroom including the clergy abuse scandal inside the Boston Archdiocese; the devastating fire at a Rhode Island nightclub that took the lives of 100 people and the recovery of a Cezanne still life that was stolen from a Berkshires home in 1978 and later auctioned for $29 million. He has also written extensively about the Armenian Genocide, which his late father survived as a three year-old in 1915.

Kurkjian’s 2005 article of the theft of 13 pieces of artwork from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum is regarded as the most complete account of the still-unsolved crime. MASTER THIEVES, his book on the theft, was published by PublicAffairs last year and received critical praise from The New York Times, the Boston Globe and The Washington Post.  The book has been optioned to TriStar Studios and is currently being adapted into a screenplay.

The program is free and open to the public. For more information call the Library at 603-516-6050.
