misc_none Wotiz Gallery Exhibit: Paintings by Artist David Dauer     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757, x. 3   
   

There will be an exhibit during the month of April in the Wotiz Gallery of paintings by local artist David Dauer.  In early 2016, after over 30 years in the publishing and advertising fields as a designer, art director and creative head, Mr. Dauer decided to go back to his first love: fine arts.  He started drawing at an early age and that led him to numerous years of discovery and education.  He has a BFA from UMass Dartmouth and an MFA from Kent State University in Painting, with extensive study in Printmaking, Photography and Art History, with continued studies in Design at Umass Dartmouth which led him to his 30-plus year career in the publishing industry.  He has shown work in many locations in the Northeast and Ohio, most recently at Colo Colo Gallery in New Bedford, Sotheby’s in Jamaica Plain and The Wall Gallery in Norwood. David is part of the Switch Co-op Gallery in Hyde Park and is a member of both the Milton Art Center and Hyde Park Art Association. He is also part of the TECM Artist's Collaborative, a private group of artist professions. More information may be found on his website at dbdauerstudio.com or his Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages under dbdauerstudio The work to be seen in this display are acrylic paintings and small water based marker drawings. The work emanates from current world events and religious readings through a surrealistic model.  Dauer's paintings utilize vibrant color, texture, and overlays of color wash.

There will be a free and open reception in the Wotiz Gallery for this exhibit on April 5th from 5:30 - 8:15 PM.   As part of the reception, there will also be an artist talk by Mr. Dauer starting at 6:30 PM in the East Reading Room (periodicals room) which adjoins the gallery.  Please note that in honor of his longtime friend, Herbert Voigt, who passed away recently, David will be donating 30% of any sales from this show to the Library.  Herb was a trustee of the Milton Public Library and a professor at Boston University.  Please come and view this lovely display and meet the artist during the month of April.

misc_none Wotiz Gallery Exhibit: Paintings by Artist Paul Riley     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757, x. 3   
   

In the Wotiz Gallery this month there will be an exhibit called "Journey from Drafting Board to Easel" by Milton artist Paul Riley.  The display will show the waterolors, pastels and acrylics of the artist, who is retired from a career as a mechanical designer and a teacher of drafting and design.  During his career he recognized the future in his field was computer-aided design and he eagerly embraced programs to apply technology to all drawing projects.  As an educator he inspired many students to use technology to explore their creativity.  He started taking drawing classes, moved from line drawing to more expressive free form and began by using pastels and acrylics.  His mechanical design-influenced works include "The Brush," "Tools of the Trade" and "Waterworks."  His appreciation for architectural form, angles and lighting is seen in paintings such as the "Baker Chocolate Building."  Later Paul began the study of watercolor techniques and his recent pieces reflect his appreciation for nature, notably "The Nest" and "Sunflower."  Currently he continues to take art classes and is a member of the Milton Art Association.  Still growing as a painter, Paul embraces experimentation with subject, technique and medium.   There will be a free and open reception for this exhibit on Wednesday, May 9th from 6-8 PM in the Gallery.  Please come meet the artist and view his lovely work.

From filmmaker Christopher Nolan comes the epic action thriller "Dunkirk," starring Fionn Whitehead, Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance and Tom Hardy )c2017),  You do not want to miss this inspiring story which unfolds on land, sea and air, as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk with enemy troops closing in.  RAF Spitfires engage the enemy in the skies above the Channel, trying to protect the defenseless men below.  Meanwhile, hundreds of small boats manned by both military officers and civilians are mounting a desperate rescue effort, risking their lives in a race against time to save even a fraction of their army.   This is a free screening and the film is rated PG-13 for "intense war experience and some language."  The running time is 106 minutes and this program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.  Please join us for a movie you will not forget!

misc_none 5:00 PM  -  7:00 PM Meet Amor Towles, Author of NY Times Bestseller, A Gentleman in Moscow     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Connie Spiros     cdspiros@comcast.net
   
One of today's most popular authors, Amor Towles, comes to Milton to celebrate this year's Milton Reads 2018 selection of his book, A Gentleman in Moscow.
Don't miss his visit on Wednesday, May 16, with a book signing scheduled for 5pm and a talk starting at 6pm.
With a big crowd expected, we have reserved the Milton High School Auditorium for this special event.  Get there early and bring your book or buy one at the door!
This special Library author event is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and the Milton Library Foundation.
 
For those of you not yet familiar with the book, here's a bit about the story:
On the NY Times best seller list for 54 weeks, the book centers on Count Alexander Rostov, a Russian artistocrat who, in 1922, is hauled before a Bolshevik tribunal and sentenced to confinement within the attic of a luxury hotel. His confinement sends him into a spiral of emotional discovery, as well as giving him a unique first-hand look at some of the most significant events of Russian history as they unfold outside his window. Exploring themes of justice, the psychology of the imprisoned, and finding one’s purpose in life, A Gentleman in Moscow was released to critical acclaim and was praised for its in-depth portrayal of the lead character and its detailed depiction of post-revolution Russia.

This evening local author Tara Cousineau, Ph.D, will give a one-hour talk about her new book called The Kindness Cure: How the Science of Compassion Can Heal Your Heart & Your World (New Harbinger Publications, 2018).  "It's time for a kindness revolution!"  These days kindness seems to have a bad rap!  We've become suspicious of it.  On the one hand, being kind seems too soft and easy; on the other, we don't quite trust it.  Yet we lament that we don't see more of it.  It's easy to look around and see noting but cynicism or feel overwelmed by the word.  Dr. Cousineau contends that kindness is neither a sweet platitude nor something to check off in the Do-Gooder category.  Kindness takes effort - and it's worth it.  Kindness deeply affects our health and well-being.  Her book is a blend of story and science that is sure to change how you think about kindness.  Tara is a clinical psychologist, meditation teacher, well-being researcher, and social entrepreneur.  She is affiliated wih the Center for Mindfulness and Compassion at Cambridge Health Alliance in Somerville, MA and resides in Milton.  Please join us for an inspirational evening with a prolific writer.

    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757, x. 3   
   

Tonight we are offering a free film screening of what one reviewer called "One of the best films of the year!" "The Glass Castle" tells an inspiring true story about Jeannette (Oscar winner Brie Larson) who had a poor but wildly adventurous childhood, raised by her free-spirited father (Woody Harrleson) and her mother (Naomi Watts), an eccentric artist.  This all-star cast shines in the movie based on The New York Times best-selling memoir.  When Jeannette's father's behavior becomes erratic, she and her siblings must find the courage to live on their own terms in this uplifting story of unconditional love.  It is rated PG-13 for "mature thematic content, involving family dysfunction, for some language and smoking" and the running time is 127 minutes.  This program is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757, x. 3   
   

There will be a hour-long book discussion this evening with Library Director Will Adamczyk to explore the title: American War by El Akkad.  Each quarter we'll read a work of contemporary fiction that we might not otherwise have chosen for ourselves -- possibly controversial, possibly newsworthy -- but definitely discussion worthy!  This is an audacious and powerful debut novel: a second American Civil War, a devastating plague, and one family caught deep in the middle -- a story that asks what might happen if America were to turn its most devastating policies and deadly weapons upon itself.  Sarat Chestnut, born in Louisiana, is only 6 years old when the Second American Civil War breaks out in 2074.  But even she knows that oil is outlawed, that Louisiana is half underwater, and that unmanned drones fill the sky.  And when her father is killed and her family is forced into camp Patience for displaced persons, she quickly begins to be shaped by her particular time and place until, finally, through the influence of a mysterious functionary, she is turned into a deadly instrument of war.  Telling her story is her nephew, Benjamin Chestnut, born during war -- part of the Miraculous Generation -- now an old man confronting the dark secret of his past, his family's role in the conflict and, in particular, that of his aunt, a woman who saved his life while destroying untold others.    You may reserve a copy of the book either by going to our website which is www.miltonlibrary.org or by calling the Reference Department at (617) 698-5757, x. 3 for staff help to place a reserve.  Please join Will for a fascinating discussion!   This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is free and open to the public.

Readers' Theatre is a a type of drama performed by "readers" who read from a script and do not have to memorize lines.  Performed with minimal costumes, sets and props, readers' theatre can be not only a great introduction to theatre for kids, but it's also a great way to practice one's oral reading skills, build confidence, and have fun with friends at the same time!

This summer, Miss Sara is leading a Readers' Theatre Club for students entering grades 2-4.  Each week participants will play theatre games, tackle different scripts based on well-known children's books, and make crafts to supplement the stories we're telling together.  The Club will meet five times over the course of the summer, and each meeting will culminate with a performance for family and friends.  While this is a drop-off program, parents/caregivers are asked to return 15 minutes before the end of each class (at 3:45) so they can see the show!

Students must be fluent readers who have completed first grade.  Registration is required and will open two weeks before the event.

Readers' Theatre is a a type of drama performed by "readers" who read from a script and do not have to memorize lines.  Performed with minimal costumes, sets and props, readers' theatre can be not only a great introduction to theatre for kids, but it's also a great way to practice one's oral reading skills, build confidence, and have fun with friends at the same time!

This summer, Miss Sara is leading a Readers' Theatre Club for students entering grades 2-4.  Each week participants will play theatre games, tackle different scripts based on well-known children's books, and make crafts to supplement the stories we're telling together.  The Club will meet five times over the course of the summer, and each meeting will culminate with a performance for family and friends.  While this is a drop-off program, parents/caregivers are asked to return 15 minutes before the end of each class (at 3:45) so they can see the show!

Students must be fluent readers who have completed first grade.  Registration is required and will open two weeks before the event.

Thousands of restaurants have come and gone on Cape Cod over the past century. Some, however, made an indelible mark. Bill and Thelma's was hugely popular with students from the 1950s to the 1970s, often packed with locals after sporting events and dances. Starbuck's Restaurant in Hyannis featured the Chief Justice Warren Burger Burger and the Larry Bird Burger on its menu and boasted of the soup du jour, "We don't know what it is, but we have it every day." Opinions differ on how the Reno Diner actually got its name, whether from a broken sign or a local appliance company.

In his book, Historic Restaurants of Cape Cod, Author Christopher Setterlund details the history of the iconic establishments of the Cape, still fresh in the memories of patrons, complete with famous recipes.
