misc_none 2:00 PM  -  3:30 PM Shakespeare's Words? Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference   978-623-8430   rdesk@mhl.org
   

Why is there no writing in Shakespeare's hand?  How is it that we have so many plays said to be written by a man named Shakespeare?  Did Shakespeare even write his plays? We'll celebrate Shakespeare's birthday and find out about this and more as educator and Shakespeare scholar, Julia Perlowski, delivers a lecture about Shakespeare's first compilation of plays known as the First Folio. Through the printing history of this collection, age old questions about Shakespeare are considered. Her lecture will be light and fun and will be sure to whet your appetite for more involvement with the Bard.

Julia Perlowski started her teaching career as a drama, reading and English instructor in South Florida where she taught for 10 years directing young people in "Romeo and Juliet", "Much Ado About Nothing",  "As You Like It" and "Macbeth".  Julia is currently a drama teacher at Parthum Middle School in Lawrence, where she is contributing to the turn-around effort under District Receiver Jeffrey Riley.  In addition to contributions to public school, Julia is an English Speaking Union-Boston Branch board member, for which she coordinates the Annual Shakespeare competition.  She is also a member of the National Teacher Corps for the Folger Shakespeare Library Education Department, through which she is asked to conduct workshops for teachers at the national level. Julia has been trained at The Folger Shakespeare Library, England’s GLOBE, the American Shakespeare Center and Lenox Shakespeare and Co. Julia currently presents lectures and teacher-training workshops at the National Council Teachers of English, as well at state arts conferences, including Tennessee, Florida, Montana, Texas and California. In 2010, Julia was awarded the Teaching Excellence Award by the U.S. State Department.  She was stationed in Gujarat, India where she trained 40 teachers to dynamically engage their students in complex early modern English text. Julia’s work extends into Krakow, Stockholm and St. Lucia, where she is in planning to produce "A Midsummer Night's Dream", to be toured on the island as a fundraiser for Edward for Education.  Julia is the recipient of the Reba R. Robinson Award from the Children’s Theatre Foundation in partnership with the American Alliance of Theatre and Education. Given biennially, this prize recognizes a secondary school teacher for outstanding achievement in, and commitment to, teen theatre. See Julia’s "MacBeth" performed at North Andover High School this June!

The Pastel Art of Georgia O’Keeffe: Modern American Abstraction

Become inspired to create beautiful pastel paintings by exploring America’s foremost modernist pastel painter of flowers. Focusing on the calla lily, participants will work in tandem with artist, Gregory Maichack, to experiment with hundreds of pastels and to learn pastel handling techniques O’Keeffe used in her art -- scumbling, feathering, blending, slurring, edges, and layering. How layering is accomplished without fixatives for achieving O’Keeffe’s “clean” look will be a focus, as well as building an abstract foundation through Leonardo da Vinci’s revolutionary drawing technique.

All materials provided. Space is limited to 16 participants. Registration required.

Locating information about an adoption in your family takes patience, good judgement and a broad knowledge base of laws, history and record types. Whether the adoption you are researching is for a modern day reunification effort, or a deceased ancestor you are trying to place on your family tree, successfully identifying birth parents uncovers the kind of rich and emotional family stories that genealogists love to collect. 

Larry Maurice began adoption reunion searching in 1992, and was a member of a research and advocacy team that worked to open adoption records in NH in 2004.  He has been a volunteer at the New Hampshire Vital Records Genealogy Research Room for twenty-five years, and is a contributing member of the American Canadian Geneaological Society in Manchester, NH. Come learn the basic steps of beginning adoption genealogy work and listen to some rich tales of reunion success and persistent brick walls.

This month's Night Readers selection will be THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON by Kelly Barnhill.  

"Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and deliver them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. 
One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this enmagicked girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. To keep young Luna safe from her own unwieldy power, Xan locks her magic deep inside her. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule--but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her--even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she’s always known."

    Contact: Reference   978-623-8430   rdesk@mhl.org
   

Are you thinking that now is the time to begin eating healthier, but you don’t want to give up those desserts you really enjoy?  Do food allergies or dietary restrictions prevent your family members from enjoying the sweets they crave?  Would you like to know how to adapt your favorite baked recipes to accommodate almost any food need you and your family have?  Come learn the “secrets” to substituting ingredients in recipes to create desserts which not only are healthier for you but delicious tasting, too.                      

Through her personal experience and her knowledge from cooking for family owned restaurants, Paula Castner has almost forty years of familiarity with food allergies and almost twenty years of experience with hypoglycemic and diabetic requirements. Unwilling to give up the treats she likes to eat, she has spent years discovering and perfecting the best ways to make cakes, cookies, breads, and more which meet a variety of dietary needs but also satisfy the desire for something tasty and sweet.

She brings her expertise in a one and a half to two hour workshop format, including handouts to bring home.  She has spoken for PTOs, churches and libraries, and she has her own blog, pajamaliving.wordpress.com, which addresses how people can comfortably live the life they want, eating what they enjoy, despite dietary limitations.
