rec_paintpalette 9:00 AM  -  9:00 PM Artist Plates Project
In The Gallery
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

The Artist Plates Project is a traveling exhibition of artist created “dinner plates” created by participating artists from all over the country as well as France and Canada. The focus of the project, conceived by Don Mistretta, was to raise awareness and funds for the hungry through the grass roots organization, Hunger Relief through the Arts Foundation. Each artist began with an unfinished birch wood platter about the size of a dinner plate and uniquely painted, carved, sculpted and glazed to create their statement on the plight of the homeless, the unfortunate, and the hungry. This project ran for 10 years at multiple venues.   The exhibition at the Great Neck Library Gallery highlights works from the project.

lib_book01 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Mother Daughter Book Discussions facilitated by librarian Barbara Buckley Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Has there ever been a more precious, yet complex relationship than that of a mother and a daughter?  Whether the journey has been perfect or fraught with stress, the best way to understand this emotional minefield is through literature.

We will explore this intimate kinship in a reading group series.  Beginning on Wednesday, July 19, the group will enjoy the film “Postcards from the Edge,” based on the autobiography of Carrie Fisher and her love/hate relationship with her mother, Debbie Reynolds.

The week following, on Wednesday, July 26, discuss The Mare by Mary Gaitskill.  This novel probes the existential question—what is a mother?

Elizabeth Strout’s slim but substantive novel, My Name is Lucy Barton will be discussed on Wednesday, August 9.  It plunges right into the estranged relationship of Elizabeth and her mother, a woman she has not seen in years.

To end the series on Wednesday, August 30, the group will explore the wonderful Amy Tan’s book The Valley of Amazement.  From The Joy Luck Club to The Kitchen God’s Wife, Tan is at the epicenter studying the phenomenally complicated mother-daughter love affair.

Register online (on the July 19 form) or by calling the Reference Dept. at 466-8055, ext. 218/219.

Please call early if you’d like us to interloan any or all titles in the series. It takes 1-2 weeks for interloan books to arrive at the library, as well as your time for reading!!

For our July meeting we'll be reading Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli.  Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight.  Now change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he's pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he's never met.  We'll also be reading I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson for our next meeting.  Stop by Levels to pick up a copy of each and start reading!

med_caduceus 2:00 PM  -  3:30 PM CHAT (Conversations: Health and Treatments)
Northwell Health
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Presented by Maria Carney, MD and Adam Kahn

The Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy and Northwell Health

The mission of the Conversations: Health and Treatments CHAT project is to empower adults of all ages— those who are healthy and those who are not— with information about advance care planning, allowing for more open communication with their families and clinicians about patient-centered medical decision-making for themselves and their loved ones should they be faced with a serious, life threatening or end-of-life situation.

For many people, advance care planning can be a scary and confusing process; however, advance directives (including health care proxies, living wills and DNRs) are powerful tools that can help demystify an emotionally charged planning process. An informed patient is an engaged patient, and by providing free, confidential legal counseling, the CHAT project seeks to (1) help people complete critical advance care planning documentation and (2) prepare these individuals for important discussions with their loved ones and clinicians through the use of these documents.

The CHAT project is a partnership between the Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University and Northwell Health, and communities in the New York metropolitan area.  chat@hofstra.edu                                  thechatproject.org                                            516-463-7015

Maria Carney MD is an internist, geriatrician and palliative care physician with public health experience. She is the first known Geriatrician to serve as commissioner of a health department in New York State. She is currently the Chief, Division of Geriatric and Palliative Medicine in the Northwell Department of Medicine and Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine.

Adam Kahn is a Senior Fellow for the Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy at Hofstra University and an associate attorney with the law firm of Genser Dubow Genser & Cona, LLP. He was a founding member of the Hofstra Elder Law Society.

lib_book_red 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Mother Daughter Book Discussions facilitated by librarian Barbara Buckley Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Has there ever been a more precious, yet complex relationship than that of a mother and a daughter?  Whether the journey has been perfect or fraught with stress, the best way to understand this emotional minefield is through literature.

We will explore this intimate kinship in a reading group series.  Beginning on Wednesday, July 19, the group will enjoy the film “Postcards from the Edge,” based on the autobiography of Carrie Fisher and her love/hate relationship with her mother, Debbie Reynolds.

The week following, on Wednesday, July 26, discuss The Mare by Mary Gaitskill.  This novel probes the existential question—what is a mother?

Elizabeth Strout’s slim but substantive novel, My Name is Lucy Barton will be discussed on Wednesday, August 9.  It plunges right into the estranged relationship of Elizabeth and her mother, a woman she has not seen in years.

To end the series on Wednesday, August 30, the group will explore the wonderful Amy Tan’s book The Valley of Amazement.  From The Joy Luck Club to The Kitchen God’s Wife, Tan is at the epicenter studying the phenomenally complicated mother-daughter love affair.

Register online (on the July 19 form for the entire series or on each individual date) or by calling the Reference Dept. at 466-8055, ext. 218/219.

Please call early if you’d like us to interloan any or all titles in the series. It takes 1-2 weeks for interloan books to arrive at the library, as well as your time for reading!!

Performances are:
Thursday, Friday & Saturday
AUGUST 10, 11 & 12, 2017
at 8:00 p.m.



This beloved classic will be the first musical presented in Levels' renovated space!

The year is 1905. In the Russian Jewish village of Anatevka, everyone lives according to the traditions of the past. But times have begun to change. Tevye, the simple, hardworking dairyman, must decide what to do when his daughters wish to marry for love rather than have the village’s matchmaker choose their husbands for them – an obvious thing to us in 2017, but unthinkable in their time and place. Each choice his children make pushes Tevye farther from what his heart and his religion will allow. And there are darker things on the horizon – it is rumored that Jews have begun to be forced from their villages by the Russian authorities. Somehow, Tevye and his neighbors must redefine themselves and find a place in this new and different world, where their existence feels as shaky as...well, as a fiddler on the roof.

Fiddler on the Roof is filled with songs almost everyone knows: "Tradition," "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," "Sunrise, Sunset," "If I Were a Rich Man," "Do You Love Me?," "Miracle of Miracles" and more.  The original production starring Zero Mostel and directed/choreographed by Jerome Robbins won nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, the 1971 film adaptation won three Oscars, and the play has since gone on to become a favorite the world over, 

Levels presents several fully-staged theatre productions a year, all directed, produced, choreographed, designed and performed by teens between 7th grade and college age.
