misc_none.png 2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Marc Sherman Concert Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Around the World in 22 Songs! In this program, we begin in America, traveling to the Caribbean, Central and South America, then across the ocean to Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia, and finally back to the U.S.A. Through song and commentary, and singing in 10 languages, Marc will explore the rich diversity of music in cultures and countries around the world.

Sunday, Oct. 20 at 2 pm in the Community Room

Sponsored by the Friends of Huntingdon Valley Library

Marc Sherman has been entertaining in the Philadelphia area and surrounding counties as a bandleader, pianist, and vocalist for the past 50 years, performing at weddings, dinner dances, corporate events, and restaurants. For the past decade, he has also entertained at many senior facilities. He sings in eight languages, and his well-trained ear has enabled him to commit thousands of songs to memory. He performs music of the 1940s, 50s, and 60s; Broadway show tunes; classical piano solos; Sinatra standards; and sing-along favorites. He enjoys taking audience requests prior to his performances.

Marc began picking out tunes at age 4, as he sat next to his father (who played by ear) on the piano bench in their Philadelphia home. At age nine he was taking lessons, and by the end of high school decided to make music his career. Marc entered Temple University’s College of Music as a Piano/Voice Major. While at Temple, he recorded three albums with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Eugene Ormandy as part of the Temple University Concert Choir. Marc graduated first in his class in 1969 with a Degree in Music Education, and taught music in the Philadelphia School District for 35 years. Early in his career, Marc sang with Duke Ellington’s band, and played in Warren Covington’s big band. He has developed a unique style which incorporates his years of training and performance.

Join us for our November YA book club, where we will discuss Adib Khorram's Darius The Great is Not Okay.Image result for darius the great is not okay

Each YA book club includes discussion, a book-related activity, and light refreshments. Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk.

Open to students in grades 7-12.

Registration is requested.

Darius Kellner speaks better Klingon than Farsi, and he knows more about Hobbit social cues than Persian ones. He’s a Fractional Persian—half, his mom’s side—and his first-ever trip to Iran is about to change his life.

Darius has never really fit in at home, and he’s sure things are going to be the same in Iran. His clinical depression doesn’t exactly help matters, and trying to explain his medication to his grandparents only makes things harder. Then Darius meets Sohrab, the boy next door, and everything changes. Soon, they’re spending their days together, playing soccer, eating faludeh, and talking for hours on a secret rooftop overlooking the city’s skyline. Sohrab calls him Darioush—the original Persian version of his name—and Darius has never felt more like himself than he does now that he’s Darioush to Sohrab.
 
Adib Khorram’s brilliant debut is for anyone who’s ever felt not good enough—then met a friend who makes them feel so much better than okay.

Praise for Darius the Great is Not Okay

misc_none.png 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Flappers - Women of the 1920s with Trish Chambers Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

In 2019, Trish Chambers spoke about the Women Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court and we have invited her back to help celebrate National Women's History Month with a special presentation of:

FLAPPERS – WOMEN OF THE 1920'S

It was a period of American history that drove significant changes in how society perceived and accepted women. It was also a time of meteoric growth for our country and its women. Learn about the emergence of American women from the demure Gibson Girl to the flashy Flapper. Learn, too, about the impacts of WWI on society, the influences of literature, movies and art on how women were perceived and the fashion of the time. Trish will perform in period costume.

Suitable for teens and adults.

Registration is kindly requested.
