This month's Night Readers selection will be El Deafo by Cece Bell.   

"Starting at a new school is scary, even more so with a giant hearing aid strapped to your chest! At her old school, everyone in Cece's class was deaf. Here she is different. She is sure the kids are staring at the Phonic Ear, the powerful aid that will help her hear her teacher. Too bad it also seems certain to repel potential friends. 
Then Cece makes a startling discovery. With the Phonic Ear she can hear her teacher not just in the classroom, but anywhere her teacher is in school--in the hallway...in the teacher's lounge...in the bathroom! This is power. Maybe even superpower! Cece is on her way to becoming El Deafo, Listener for All. But the funny thing about being a superhero is that it's just another way of feeling different... and lonely. Can Cece channel her powers into finding the thing she wants most, a true friend?"

Color and Light: Watercolors from the Collection
15 September–15 October 2017

Truly masterpieces of painterly skill, watercolors are prized for their unique freshness and fluid execution. Created with quick, immediate gestures, the works portray a spontaneity that belies the practiced sureness required of the artist, who must apply countless transparent and opaque layers of pigment over absorbent, unforgiving paper to produce a composition filled with sparkling light and jewel-like color.

Exhibition of watercolors is limited, as the works are sensitive to light and susceptible to irreparable fading over time. For a month only this fall, the Addison offers visitors a rare opportunity to view a selection of its treasured watercolors by recognized masters of the medium—Arthur B. Davies, Winslow Homer, John LaFarge, Thomas Moran, Maurice Prendergast, and John Singer Sargent.

Color and Light: Watercolors from the Collection
15 September–15 October 2017

Truly masterpieces of painterly skill, watercolors are prized for their unique freshness and fluid execution. Created with quick, immediate gestures, the works portray a spontaneity that belies the practiced sureness required of the artist, who must apply countless transparent and opaque layers of pigment over absorbent, unforgiving paper to produce a composition filled with sparkling light and jewel-like color.

Exhibition of watercolors is limited, as the works are sensitive to light and susceptible to irreparable fading over time. For a month only this fall, the Addison offers visitors a rare opportunity to view a selection of its treasured watercolors by recognized masters of the medium—Arthur B. Davies, Winslow Homer, John LaFarge, Thomas Moran, Maurice Prendergast, and John Singer Sargent.
