misc_none 3:30 PM  -  4:30 PM Books & Snacks Club (First of Two Sessions) Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jonathan Heifetz   (914) 721-8105   jheifetz@wlsmail.org
   

Grades K - 2. Online pre-registration required for the craft. There is no homework for this program.

We will read together The Secret Subway by Shana Corey.  Reading aloud is encouraged but not required!

This is a picture-book biography of Alfred Ely Beach, the man who built the world's first underground train back in 1873.  Since electric power had not yet been harnessed, Beach's train relied on air pressure!  Beach laid the groundwork for the New York City subway which opened 30 years later.

This will be followed by a craft activity, then refreshments.

Due to the high demand, we run two sessions of the same program (same book, same craft) on the same day.

misc_none 1:30 PM EPL Film Series: Cool Hand Luke Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Paul Newman was nominated for an Oscar and George Kennedy received one for his work in this allegorical prison drama. Luke Jackson (Paul Newman) is sentenced to a stretch on a southern chain gang after he's arrested for drunkenly decapitating parking meters. While the avowed ambition of the captain (Strother Martin) is for each prisoner to get their mind right, it soon becomes obvious that Luke is not about to kowtow to anybody. When challenged to a fistfight by fellow inmate Dragline (George Kennedy), Luke simply refuses to give up, even though he's brutally beaten. Luke knows how to win at poker, even with bad cards, by using his smarts and playing it cool. Luke also figures out a way for the men to get their work done in half the usual time, giving them the afternoon off. Finally, when Luke finds out his mother has died, he plots his escape; when he's caught, he simply escapes again. Soon, Luke becomes a symbol of hope and resilience to the other men in the prison camp -- and a symbol of rebelliousness that must be stamped out to the guards and the captain. Along with stellar performances by Newman, Kennedy, and Martin, Cool Hand Luke features a superb supporting cast, including Ralph Waite, Harry Dean Stanton, Dennis Hopper, Wayne Rogers, and Joe Don Baker as members of the chain gang.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

An original script (working title: The Sea Son's Quest) is currently being developed, and will be performed at the library.   It is loosely based on Rick Riordan's The Lightning Thief, the first in his best-selling Percy Jackson & the Olympians series of fantasy books rooted in Greek mythology.

This is the second year that we are offering this unique program, which combines the love of reading and creativity with public performance.  

Participation in this project requires an 8 week commitment. All participants are also expected to read The Lightning Thief.  There will be seven practices, mostly on Wednesday nights. Tentatively there will be two public performances, one on Wednesday March 29th, the second that following weekend.

Online pre-registration is suggested. Any child who is interested in participating is strongly encouraged to attend this initial meeting.  If they cannot make the meeting but still wish to participate, please contact Jonathan in the Children's Room.  Roles will be assigned at the discretion of the children who are writing and directing the play, as well as the Children's Librarian.  Additional roles such as crew and set design will be needed aside from acting roles.

For Grades 4 and 5, as well as highly motivated 3rd graders.

        There are 10 spaces available.
