CAPTAIN AMERICA - CIVIL WAR

Friday Night Movie: Captain America Civil War  | Rated PG-13 | 147 min.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Hispanic Heritage Month: Molina Speaks and Eutimia Cruz Montoya

Don’t miss our series of special performances to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. Bring the whole family and enjoy a truly unique show by two amazing local talents, Adrian Molina, a.k.a. Molina Speaks and Eutimia Cruz Montoya.

According to his web bio, Adrian Molina, a.k.a. Molina Speaks "hails from a small gritty working class town you might think of as 'nowhere.' He proves there is Soul everywhere. He balances humble roots and urban grit, street smarts and cultural knowledge, lyrical skills and philosophy." Speaks describes himself as a Chicano/Latino/Indigenous/Mestizo Futurist. Molina Speaks will perform using poetry to express heritage for the voices, stories, and power of youth and communities of color." His performance, which is family-oriented, will last approximately 20-30 minutes.

Eutimia Cruz Montoya is a lineage-raised contemporary curandera, herbalist, licensed acupuncturist, Real Foods Activist, and Food Systems Educator. She is the descendant of New Mexican curanderos (spiritual healers), and learned the healing ways in the home. She grew up participating in indigenous American song, dance and prayer traditions, giving her an inborn connection to, and understanding of Body and Source. Eutimia has a degree in the Anthropological Sciences from Stanford University, a Master of Science degree in Oriental Medicine, and has been studying and practicing Classical Chinese Medicine since 2004. As a "modern day medicine woman," she travels often to share her healing gifts with the global community, and continue on her healing path as a life-long student of the 'medicine ways' of the world.

The day of the dead is a tradition throughout Latin America to celebrate the life of our deceased loved ones. Families build a shrine (Altar de Muertos) honoring family members that have passed. The Altar has a portrait of the deceased. It is decorated with flowers and candles, and includes favorite food, drink and candy that the deceased's soul will enjoy, on November 2nd El día de los Muertos.
 
Come and celebrate with their lives with us by decorating a traditional altar dedicated to our loved ones, or make a craft related to the holiday. Consider bringing a portrait of a late family member to include in our collective Altar. The Altar will be displayed in the library on November 2nd, according to custom.

El día de los muertos es una tradición latinoamericana en la que se festeja la vida de seres queridos ya fallecidos. Las familias elaboran altares con el retrato de la persona a quien se dedica el altar que se adorna con flores y veladoras. En el altar se ofrecen comidas, bebidas y dulces  preferidos del familiar para que su alma venga y disfrute de ellos el dia 2 de noviembre.
 
Ven y celebra con nosotros su vida decorando un altar de muertos tradicional dedicado a nuestros seres queridos o elaborando una manualidad relacionada con la festividad. Trae el  retrato de tu familiar para incluirlo en nuestro altar colectivo. El altar de muertos será exhibido  el 2 de noviembre de acuerdo a la tradición.

What if you had to make the decision to live or die? Using the book, If I Stay by Gayle Forman, Red Rocks Community College literature students guide young writers through an insightful exercise. We'll identify certain strategies that Forman is already using as an author, such as how she plays with time, and how she chooses to reveal particular ideas about Mia's life as they serve as transitions between those temporal points, and craft creative writing exercises around those strategies. Teens will engage in creative writing (and share as they go!) in this hands-on workshop. Registration is limited to 15 participants.
