misc_none Wotiz Gallery Exhibit: Travel Sketches - Paris and Venice by J.B. Clancy     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757, x. 3   
   

During June 2018, the Milton Public Library is hosting a very talented artist in the Wotiz Gallery.  Milton resident J.B. Clancy will present an exhibit called “Travel Sketches – Paris and Venice”  from June 2nd through the 30th.   All the drawings in this show were done on location with a simple ink pen and sketch book, generally while sitting in a comfortable café.  The subject may be a famous building or a barge on a canal.  Yet the time spent looking is as important as the subject.  J.B. believes drawing while traveling is the best way to observe the world around you.  Spending time in one place and recording what you see impresses the sights and sounds of that place firmly into your memory. 

J.B. studied architecture at a time when hand-drawing was still part of the education of an architect.  While most of the work today is on a computer, J.B. still uses sketches and the drawing process to explore design ideas and in his work with clients.  He is a partner with Albert, Righter & Tittmann (or ART) Architects in Boston.  ART Architects practices the art and science of architecture throughout the northeast, designing houses in New England traditions with a focus on sustainability.  J.B. is a Certified Passive House Consultant and designed Vermont’s first Certified Passive House.  He is a graduate of Brown University and the Yale School of Architecture.  He lives in Milton with his artist wife Dana and their son Barron.

There will be a free and open reception for this exhibit on Tuesday, June 5th, from 6-8 PM in the Gallery, so please come meet the artist and view his lovely work.

    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 Omar El Akkad (c2017).  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.

misc_none Wotiz Gallery Exhibit: Winter Valley Collage Group     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757, x. 3   
   

This month there will be a colorful display of collages shown in our gallery by the Winter Valley Collage Group.  This collaboration started sometime in 2015.  Liz O'Rourke is the Activities Coordinator at Winter Valley and a lifelong artist.  She had been creating collages for approximately 5 years under the tutelage of Sandra Shuman, a collage artist, friend and instructor and was excited about a new piece.  Liz showed it to Abe Salzman, an artist and resident of Winter Valley.  He loved the idea of collage, and a week later he showed Liz his first collage piece.  He was inspired and on fire!  From there, Abe introduced collage to other residents, offering free instruction and guidance in a weekly workshop.  There have been several collage showings at Winter Valley and one at Fuller Village Brush Hill recently.  Abe has also instructed collage classes at Simon C. Fireman's House in Randolph and Unquity House in Milton.  The collages are made from cut-out paper images taken from magazines, old books and other assorted media.  Rubber cement and glue sticks are used to adhere the paper pieces and other items to foamcore, matboard or card stock.  For more information, contact Liz O'Rourke at (617) 755-3560 and please don't miss this lovely exhibit during July at the Library.  The names of the artists are: Abe Salzman, Mark Whall, Mary Douglas, Robert Turner, Charlene McClellan, Peggy Walsh and Liz O'Rourke.  There will be a free and open reception also held for this exhibit on Thursday evening, July 19th, from 6-8 PM in the Gallery where you can meet all these talented artists. Please join us.

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.

Celebrate Libraries Rock with us during this fun and educational program all about the science of sound!

Music and all sorts of merry sounds engage students in sound experiments and live demonstrations showing the properties and transmission of sound waves. Students listen to sounds made with solid materials—from plastic, to metal, to string. Ordinary objects like handheld horns, metal screws, wooden ratchets and beads transform into a story sound-effect symphony. Electronic devices reveal frequency when a pitch-changing machine alters the students’ voices to gruff monsters or happy chipmunks. (K to 6)

For ages 6-11; registration is required and will open two weeks prior to the event. Sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Historic Restaurants of Cape Cod     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Connie     cdspiros@comcast.net
   

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.

Tonight there will be a free screening of the film "Paris Can Wait" directed by Eleanor Coppola and starring Diane Lane, Arnaud Viard and Alec Baldwin.    Anne is at a crossroads in her life.  Long married to a successful, driven, but inattentive movie producer, she unexpectedly finds herself taking a road trip from Cannes to Paris with a business associate of her husband.  What should be a seven-hour drive turns into a two-day adventure complete with picturesque sights, fine food and wine, humor, wisdom and romance, reawakening Anne's senses and giving her a new lust for life.  This is a great story and it is rated PG for "thematic elements, smoking and some language."  The running time is 92 minutes.  Come enjoy the cool library during July and check out this program, which is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

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

Tonight there will be a free screening of the excellent film "Marshall" which is a 2017 American biographical legal drama and stars Chadwick Boseman as Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice.  It focuses on one of the first cases of his career called "The State of Connecticut v. Joseph Spell."  In this true story, in 1940 Thurgood Marshall is an NAACP lawyer traveling the country defending people of color who are wrongly accused of crimes because of racial prejudice.  Upon the return to his New York office, he is sent to Bridgeport, CT to defend Joseph Spell (played by Sterling K. Brown), a chauffeur accused of rape by his white employer, Eleanor Strubing, in a case that has gripped the newspapers.  A Jewish insurance lawyer, Sam Friedman (Josh Gad) is assigned by his brother, against his will, to get Marshall admitted to the local bar.  At the hearing, the judge agrees to admit Marshall but forbids him to speak during the trial, forcing Friedman to be Spell's lead counsel.  This is an entertaining and inspiring biopic of a very human hero.   Please join us for this program, which is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.  The movie is 1 hour, 58 minutes in length and is rated PG-13 for "mature thematic content, sexuality, violence and some strong language."

Calling all Cooks!  The Milton Public Library Cookbook Club, led by local chef Connie Spiros and Assistant Director Sara Truog, invites you to its next session on Monday, November 5 from 6:30-7:30pm.  Each club meeting will feature a selected cookbook, and members will prepare a tasty treat from the book to bring to the Library and share.  The cookbook chosen for November is TBA.

In order to participate, please take these simple steps:

  • Please register through the library events calendar. Only registered cooks will be able to attend.
  • Borrow a copy of the book from the library and choose a dish. Books are available at the Circulation Desk one month ahead. (If you borrow a cookbook but won't be able to attend the meeting, please return the cookbook so someone else can check it out. Thank you!)
  • Once you've chosen your recipe, contact Sara by email (struog@ocln.org) or phone (617-898-4951) to let her know what recipe you’ll be trying so we don't have a lot of duplication in the dishes we'll sample on meeting night!

Space is limited and advance registration is required. Registration will open on Monday, October 15. Once you register you will receive more details about the club.  Bon Appetit!

This will be a wonderful presentation by Larry Spotted Crow Mann to celebrate Native American Month.  Mr. Mann is an award-winning writer/poet, performer, Nipmuc cultural educator, storyteller and citizen of the Nipmuc Tribe.  He travels from his home in Western Massachusetts throughout the United States, Canada, and part of Europe, to schools, colleges, Pow Wows, and other organizations sharing the music, culture, and history of Nipmuc people.  In 2010, his poetry won a competition in the Memescapes Journal of Fine Arts.  In 2013, his poetry was nominated for the Pushcart Prize.  Mann's Tales from the Whispering Basket is an internationally-acclaimed and compelling collection of short stories and poetry that has received excellent reviews.  His ground-breaking novel, The Mourning Road to Thanksgiving, won the 2015 WordCraft Circle of Native American Writers Award.  He hs also worked in collaboration with the Massachusett Department of Public Health to fight substance abuse.  Please join him to learn more about Native American history, music, literature and more in this compelling event.  The program is suitable for all ages and is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
