Join us for this free workshop, offered by The Garden: A Center for Grieving Children and Teens, a program of Cooley- Dickinson VNA & Hospice, which provides support to grieving young people and their families.

This workshop is geared towards adult caregivers and community members interested in learning how to initiate a gentle conversation about death, dying, and grief with youth. The purpose of this workshop is to use children’s literature as an effective tool in talking to children about these difficult topics. Participants will be able to join in a guided conversation about grief and will discover resources in various mediums that can be utilized to facilitate these important conversations.

We welcome family, friends, and loved ones in the life of a grieving young person, as well as anyone interested in grief work with children.  For more information about Grief Through Story and/or to find out more about The Garden, please contact Shelly Bathe Lenn, Director at 413-582 5312

Free & open to the public.

Co-sponsored by The Garden and the Jones Library.

    Contact: Janet Ryan   413/ 259-3223   ryanj@joneslibrary.org
   

The Mandolin Orchestra of Western Mass is the first of its kind in over 100 years.  Around the end of the 19th century, there were literally dozens of mandolin orchestras all over Massachusetts and New England.  Every College and University had one, notably orchestras at Smith College, Amherst College and Mt Holyoke College.  That all changed with the dawning of the 20th Century.

We are an ensemble consisting of 5-25 classically-trained musicians, many of us are students, studying the music of 15th - 19th Century Europe!  Performances include works by modern Massachusetts composers and may include musicians from Rhode Island's L'Esperance Mandolin Ensemble and Northampton's Mandolin Paradiso.  Join us for a fun concert and learn a little about the history of mandolins in Western Massachusetts!

Free & open to the public.

Science Café presents – Gut feeling: fostering a diverse and healthy microbiome, with Dr. Jeffrey Blanchard

 

Have you ever considered that there are millions of tiny creatures living inside of you? The bacteria within the human gut outnumber our own cells ten to one! These bacteria can determine how much of your food you store as fat, whether you develop harmful plaque in your arteries, and even what time of day you might feel tired. Technology has made it possible to study these microorganisms and to develop new treatments for diseases such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Crohn's Disease. This cafe will explore the diversity of human and animal gut bacteria, and how our lifestyle simultaneously influences and is influenced by our gut bacteria.

 

All Science Café events are free and open to the public. Want to learn something new? Come join us!

Does expanding awareness of social differences interest and concern you? By encouraging ourselves to think outside familiar "boxes" and by imagining what it would be like to walk in another's shoes, we challenge each other to do just that!

We read fiction and nonfiction. Some books we've read in 2014 are The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander; Voices of Our Time, by Studs Terkel; Moving Violations: War Zones, Wheelchairs, and Declarations of Independence, by John Hockenberry; Wonder, by R. J. Palacio; The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green; and Limbo: Blue-Collar Roots, White-Collar Dreams, by Alfred Lubrano.

Shakespeare Mask

Join us for an evening with local author Newton Frohlich, as he discusses his recent book The Shakespeare Mask, a historical novel that explores the life of Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford.  The books is a meticulously researched exploration of Tudor England that asks a compelling question:  What if the author of the greatest works ever written in the English language wasn’t who we think he was?   This book recently was awarded the IPBA Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal for Historical Novels.

Newton Frohlich, a former lawyer in Washington, D.C., is also the author of 1492:  The World of Christopher Columbus (St. Martin's Press) and Making the Best of It:  A Common Sense Guide to Negotiating Divorce (Harper & Row).  He spent fifteen years traveling and researching for The Shakespeare Mask, and is a member of the Shakespeare Oxford Society and the DeVere Society. He has lived in Washington, DC, the south of France, and Israel. He now makes his home on Cape Cod and in Amherst, MA with his wife, Martha, a musicologist.

Free & open to the public.

    Contact: Cyndi Harbeson   413-259-3182   harbesonc@joneslibrary.org
   

Kandie Carl presents a look at the fashion, life, and etiquette of the Victorian era.  While dressing in actual vintage and authentically reproduced undergarments, clothing and accessories, Kandie Carle adds humor, history and intriguing anecdotes about fashion, home life and etiquette of men and women during this era.  The Victorian Lady program brings to light some of the differences, as well as some of the similarities, between us and our Victorian ancestors. During this entertaining and educational program, we will enjoy a refreshing view of a magnificent era in history.

Kandie Carl has been working in the theatre since 1980 as an actress, dancer, and singer throughout the U.S. and abroad, covering the spectrum from Shakespeare to musical comedy.   Her love of history, years of research, and experience as a performer have culminated in the creation of this one-woman show, Kandie Carle - Victorian Lady . Since 1996, she has been touring with this program and has entertained audiences throughout New England and beyond.

Refreshments will be served.

    Contact: Janet Ryan   413/259-3223   ryanj@joneslibrary.org
   

May Alcott was one of many women who took art classes in Boston after the Civil War, then painted in Paris. This illustrated talk will feature May and other women whose work never found its way to museum walls, as well as one who did: Mary Cassatt, May's American friend in Paris. What inspired May to keep painting when her work received limited acclaim? What issues of rivalry did she face with her sister, Louisa, whose novel Little Women swiftly became a best seller? In this illustrated talk, Jeannine Atkins will draw from what she learned writing Little Women in Blue: A Novel of May Alcott to explore why the work of artists who push past being amateurs but never reach the level of greatness matter. What can they teach us about ways to balance creative work, family, and love today?

Jeannine Atkins' debut novel for adults is Little Women in Blue.  She is the author of several books for young readers, including Borrowed Names:  Poems about Laura Ingalls Wilder, Madam C.J. Walker, Marie Curie, and their Daughters.  She is an adjunct professor at Simmons College and the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. 

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Free & open to the public.
