    Contact: Joyce May   434-2453   eplibraryjoyce@yahoo.com
   

Three actors introduce the characters and ideas of the novel, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore in a readers’ theater presentation that will delight those who have read the book and even those who have not.  The program doesn’t give away the solution to the book’s mystery, but rather engages the audience in the people and challenges of Robin Sloan’s fantasy/adventure exploration of the modern conflict between “new” technology and “old” printed books.   Mr. Penumbra is the 2014 Reading Across Rhode Island selection!  See www.ribook.org to learn more about our statewide reading celebration!

Having a children's book published in today's tough market can seem like an impossible dream. But, in reality, getting your book idea into shape and into print can hinge on just the right advice and a timely critique from a pro. Do you need an agent? Should you connect with an artist? What about self-publishing? In a one-session workshop, nationally-known author Peter Mandel will pass on the insiders' tips writers need to know in order to create a marketable first book and get it into the hands of exactly the right gatekeepers in the publishing world. A regular contributor to The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal, Mandel is the author of eleven books for kids, including the Jackhammer Sam (Macmillan) and (Holiday House). Mandel lives in Rhode Island when he is not traveling the world as a journalist.

    Contact: Joyce May   434-2453   eplibraryjoyce@yahoo.com
   

     Dramatic advancement in technology has revolutionized the way music is created and heard allowing electronic music to become a major cultural phenomenon. Despite the continued growth of the medium in complexity as well as popularity, it remains largely unknown or misunderstood by a majority of the public. Dylan Molho, a rising musician and DJ in Providence will give a talk about the history of electronic music and its similarities and stark contrasts to other music genres in the Champlin Program Room of the library.  Dylan will also give displays of composed electronic music, the technology that creates it, and will be performing select material with live guitar accompaniment.
