This book club will meet on Tuesday, April 4th due to the need to reschedule the Community Read Discussion because of the snow storm on March 14th. 

The Inspirational Book Club meets to discuss Originals: how non-conformists move the world by Adam Grant.

Description: Using surprising studies and stories spanning business, politics, sports, and entertainment, Grant explores how to recognize a good idea, speak up without getting silenced, build a coalition of allies, choose the right time to act, and manage fear and doubt; how parents and teachers can nurture originality in children; and how leaders can build cultures that welcome dissent. Learn from an entrepreneur who pitches his start-ups by highlighting the reasons not to invest, a woman at Apple who challenged Steve Jobs from three levels below, an analyst who overturned the rule of secrecy at the CIA, a billionaire financial wizard who fires employees for failing to criticize him, and a TV executive who didn’t even work in comedy but saved Seinfeld from the cutting-room floor. The payoff is a set of groundbreaking insights about rejecting conformity and improving the status quo.

Copies are available to check out at the Library.

   The library welcomes back award-winning pastel artist Gregory John Maichack to present an adult hands-on workshop, “Pastel Paint the 45-Million- Dollar Flower,” on April 17th, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. 
 
   This pastel painting workshop is designed for sheer beginners to experienced artists. Seats may fill quickly so please call 508-839-4649 to register or sign-up online. 
 
   Participants will freely experiment with hundreds of the artist’s professional grade pastels, pastel pencils, and pastel paper, in this fun pastel painting workshop.
 
     In this new, highly researched two-hour workshop, participants have fun producing their own pastel painting of Georgia O’Keeffe’s elegant Jimson flower that sold for $45.4 million.
 
     Jimson Weed/White Flower No.1 has been described as a vehicle for pure expression. Maichack will demonstrate again how beginners to accomplished artists can pastel paint easily using techniques of masters such as O’Keeffe. As always, all will keep their pastel paintings.
 
   Gregory Maichack is a seasoned pro at teaching pastel techniques, as recognized by the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) Boston; Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC), and over 800 libraries and local cultural councils. 
 
     Artist Gregory John Maichack lives in western Holyoke. He is a portraitist and painter working primarily in pastels. He has earned many awards commissions. Visit his new web site at www.GregoryMaichack.com
