objects_easel.png Wotiz Gallery: Portraits by Artist Patty Harrington Download Event Info Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 898-4964   jhlady@ocln.org
   

The Milton Public Library will host Braintree, MA artist Patty Harrington in our Wotiz Gallery
during the month of August. Ms. Harrington was a self-taught artist for 7 years, and then for 2 more
years she studied with experienced Milton teacher Beth Neville. She will be showing a collection of
drawings called “In Your Light I Learn to Love” which consists of colored pencil portraits of people
who inspire her. The exhibit’s title is inspired by some incredible women in Patty's life, and this is what the artist has to
say about her work: “For me, creating art is pure joy and my soul’s desire. Art is my way of bringing
love to the world. As far back as I can remember, I have loved drawing and painting and have aspired to
be an artist. However, life had other ideas and would take me in a different direction. Eight years ago, I
had the opportunity to go on a two-year sabbatical which led me on a journey inward. Upon returning,
so too was my enthusiasm to create restored. I began eagerly and earnestly to learn on my own. At the
same time I began work at East Milton Wine and Spirits, where the owners, the Delaney family, so kindly
allowed and encouraged me to use the store as a platform to begin to sell my work. They, along with the
friends I work with and the loving community of patrons, continue to support m
e on my journey to learn
and grow as an artist.”


Patty decided three years ago that she should have a teacher, and so she started working with Beth
Neville, an exceptionally talented artist and instructor, who has been instrumental in not only her learning
the technical aspects of art, but also encouraged her to be bold and to embrace her personal style. Patty is
very grateful for this, and in addition she says this about her craft: “I believe as I walk this journey of life,
it takes a village in order for each of us to reach our potential. These amazing women – through their
examples of love, kindness, compassion, generosity, resilience, strength, and courage – have been my
grand teachers. Also included in this exhibit are pieces influenced by the beauty of nature and the
unconditional love of our four-legged friends.”


We hope you will come and visit the Wotiz Gallery during August, and there will be a free and open
reception held there on Thursday, 8/4, from 6-8 PM to celebrate this display. Everyone is welcome to
come meet the artist and view her lovely work.  Please visit us soon, and enjoy some artwork this month!

Fashion expert Karen Antonowicz will give a virtual talk about "Wartime Fashion" this evening.  Have you ever wondered what changes in fashion occurred during World War I and World War II?  Despite wartime shortages and restrictions, men and women managed to dress in style.  How did they accomplish this?  Join us to discover what these wartime shortages were and how they were overcome by the determined people of this era.  We will explore the clothing and accessories worn during both of these war periods, focusing on some of the innovative ways in which fashion was followed.  This will be a colorful program with lots of enjoyable images to see to illustrate the presentation.

Ms. Antonowicz has a Masters from the University of Rhode Island and has taught the History of Fashion and other college courses for 13 years.  For 5 years, she -  and her husband Mike - ran Nostalgia Antiques & Collectibles in Rhode Island, and she speaks about clothing, accessories, antiques, and related subjects often at various organizations.  Karen's Vermont company, Spirits of Fashion, is the vehicle for producing lectures and workshops on all eras of the history of fashion.

Advance registration is required here and once signed up, a Zoom connection link will be Emailed to you on the day of the program so you may participate.

Reader's Theatre is a type of drama performed by "readers" who read from a script and do not have to memorize lines.  It 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! This summer, Miss Sara is leading a Reader's Theatre Club for students entering grades 2-4.  Each week participants will play theatre games, tackle scripts based on well-known children's books, and make crafts to supplement the stories we're telling together.  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.

Reader's Theatre is a type of drama performed by "readers" who read from a script and do not have to memorize lines.  It 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! This summer, Miss Sara is leading a Reader's Theatre Club for students entering grades 2-4.  Each week participants will play theatre games, tackle scripts based on well-known children's books, and make crafts to supplement the stories we're telling together.  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.

Ms. Marzolf has loved animals since she was a child growing up in New England, and she would always take advantage of any outdoor time to explore nature.  She loves to share her knowldge about wildlife in nature in general and in addition to a B.A. in Biology, she has been doing a variety of animal-related educational programs in her professional life for over 20 years.  Part of her animal experience includes working with marine mammals in rehab/rescue programs in Masssachusetts, and with a wide variety of captive and non-releasable rescued animals in Oregon.  She has also worked with reptiles in the wild, and in captivity, for over 20 years.  Joy worked as a Naturalist and Educator at Mass Audubon's Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary for over 13 years previously, and there she taught numerous programs for all ages on many animal-related topics, to include animal tracking and photography.  She was also a trip leader and naturalist on canoe trips in both MA and NH, and has also been a Naturalist Trip leader for marine-related trips for the Oceanic Society.   We hope you will attend this interesting virtual talk - please join us!

Advance registration is required here and once signed up, a Zoom connection link will be Emailed to you on the day of the program.

There will be a one-hour in person concert this evening with the wonderful and dynamic Scottish trio called "North Sea Gas" who are again on tour in the United States.  They will return to the MPL this year as part of their Fall tour to entertain us all!   After 40 years together and stronger than ever, "North Sea Gas" is one of Scotland's most popular folk bands with great vocals and tremendous 3-part harmonies.  Guitars, mandolin, fiddle, bouzouki, harmonia, whistles, bodhrans, banjo and good humor are all part of their concerts.  The players are Dave Gilfillan, Grant Simpson, and Ronnie MacDonald, and these 3 fab musicians will charm you with their warm personalities and sharp wit.

They have received Gold and Silver Disc awards from the Scottish Music Industry Association and regulary have sold out shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and around the world.  North Sea Gas has released 22 albums with "Hearth & Homeland" being the most recent and are constantly adding new material to their events.  They are currently working on a new album to commemorate their 40th anniversary.  Their show, and their albums, consist of traditional, contemporary and self-penned material put together, in a style all their own, along with their humor and story-telling.  In addition to regular tours at home and abroad, they have taken their show to theatres, arts centres, colleges, schools, libraries, and community halls around the world.  Touring and seeing their native Scotland and other parts of the world is something the band really enjoys.  Their ever-growing fan base ranges through all age groups giving the "Gas" a wonderful atmosphere and universal appeal.  This will be a very fun concert suitable for all ages - please bring the family!.

You do NOT have to sign up this time - you may just come to the concert in person.  We hope to see you there!    (Sorry but this event will not be broadcast virtually but should be available at Milton Access Cable as "on demand" following the performance.)

    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 898-4964   jhlady@ocln.org
   

This will be an in person talk by Historian Bob Begin about the famous Boston Cocoanut Grove Fire.  In November of 1942, America was feeling the full brundt of the war.  Across the globe, war was raging on all fronts.  Europe was under German control, in North Africa, GI's were up against Italian and German forces, and in the Pacific, Marines were fighting the Japanese on air, land, and sea for control of a remote island named Guadalcanal.  Casualities of American boys were increasing as the war grew in scope and intensity.    The government announced that 600,000 men would be drafted in December.  Rationing was in place, price controls were implemented, and war-related industries were working 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.  The entire country was united and focused on the war.  In Boston, the city was full of men in uniform coming and going.  The harbor was full of merchant ships and warships.  People were full of anxiety, not knowing what the future would bring.  Parents, brothers and sisters would all share what unknowns lay ahead.

Yet, people would still try and find a way to enjoy life or at least to defer the worry of tomorrow.  There were escapes: a movie, a dance, a drink or two in one of the "hot spots."  One such place was the Cocoanut Grove, a romantic, exotic, and popular nightclub.  Eerybody would be there, and on the night of Nov. 28th, the place was packed with people looking for an escape.  At about 10:15 PM, a fire would break out in the Melody Lounge.  This fire would be one of the most deadly in America's history.  It would be a tragedy that claimed the lives of 492 people and scarred hundreds more.  What caused it, how it spread, and who were the victims is what you will learn at this fascinating presentation!  Please join in person in the Keys Room to learn more. 

Mr. Begin is an avid history fan and devotes his research to interesting and inspiring topics from American chronology.  He grew up in Lewiston, Maine, graduated from Babson College in 1965, and then served 2 years in the Army - both stateside and a little while in Panama.  He then moved to Boston and got a job with St. Regis Paper Company, and worked there for 35 years, eventually as Logistics Manager.  He married in 1967 and started a family, but always continued his thirst for history, particularly naval history.   Now we all have the pleasure of enjoying his accessible and enthusiastic programs about lots of historical topics! 

Advance registration is required here to attend this talk and then please check in at the door upon arrival. 

(This program will not be available virtually; however it will be available to view later as "on demand" at the Milton Access Cable website - contact jlhlady@ocln.org for more details about viewing it after the date.)

This program is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is free and open to all.

 

Also please note that Mr. Begin will be giving another presentation on Tuesday, November 1st called "Amundsen, Scott, and Shackleton: The Race to the Pole" starting at 7 PM (and you may register here at our events list when signup opens, in advance, under 11/1 to receive the Zoom link.)

This ongoing program will be a one-hour in person gentle vinyasa flow Yoga class with instructor Marianne Zullas.  It is designed to create movement and space in the body.  Students will practice breathing techniques, asanas (yoga poses), and will also be introduced to exercises that will open some of the meridian pathways in the body to create a better flow of energy.  This class ends with a relaxing guided meditation.  The program is appropriate for ages 13 and up, and some knowledge of yoga is recommended, but not required.  Space is limited for this enjoyable event.  Each student must bring with them a a yoga mat, a blanket, and a water bottle.   Masks are optional - it is your choice to make.  Additional classes will be offered on Saturdays: October 29th and November 12th, and students may attend one or all, but they do need to sign up individually for each one here at our events list when registration is open.  These programs are not cumulative and there is no virtual option for them.

Marianne Zullas is a Yoga teacher and a Reiki practitioner.  The mind/body connection has been a passion of hers since childhood.  Her goal is to offer her students the opportunity to dissociate from constant thinking in order to be in the present moment.  Marianne lives in Milton with her husband and two daughters.  We hope you might join her for a relaxing and informative hour!

Advance registration is required here and for questions, contact Jean Hlady, Head of Adult Services/Reference, at jbhlady@ocln.org or call (617) 898-4964.  This event is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is part of our initiative called "Milton Moves" which promotes wellness, fitness, and healthy eating.

Tonight famed extreme skiier, author, film producer and Milton resident Dan Egan will give an in person presentation based on his book called 30 Years in a White Haze which was written with co-author Eric Wilbur (c2021).  Mr. Egan is a pioneer of extreme sports, world-renowned for his big mountain skiing on the international stage.  He has appeared in more than a dozen Warren Miller ski films and is known for traveling to the most remote regions of the world to ski and chronicle the geopolitical landscape of the late 80s and 90s.  In 2001, Powder Magazine named Dan Egan one of the most influential skiers of our time.  He was inducted into the U.S. Skiing & Snowboarding Hall of Fame in 2017.  This author is also an award-winning film producer and has been nominated for three New England Emmy Awards and won three NASJA Harold Hirsch Awards for excellence in journalism.  The book he will be talking about this evening is Dan's story of worldwide adventure and the evolution of extreme Skiing.  Eric Wilbur, his co-author, is a journalist who has been covering the New England sports, travel, and skiing scenes for nearly three decades.  His written work has appeared in the Boston Globe, New Englland Ski Journal, Boston.com, Boston Metro, and various other publications.  If you love the sport, please join us in the Keys Room this evening for a fascinating talk! 

Books will also be available for puchase, signed by the author.

Please register for this program in advance here, and we will check people in at the door.  Thank you.

This program is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is free and open to all.

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 Wednesday, October 12 from 6:30-8pm.  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 October 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 day!

This will be a hybrid program: in-person participants will be in the Keys Room, sharing food in a socially distanced format; and virtual participants may watch and speak, but will not be able to try dishes. Space is limited and advance registration is required. Registration will open on Wednesday, September 21. Once you register you will receive more details about the club.  Bon Appetit!

    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 898-4964   jhlady@ocln.org
   

This ongoing program will be a one-hour in person gentle vinyasa flow Yoga class with instructor Marianne Zullas.  It is designed to create movement and space in the body.  Students will practice breathing techniques, asanas (yoga poses), and will also be introduced to exercises that will open some of the meridian pathways in the body to create a better flow of energy.  This class ends with a relaxing guided meditation.  The program is appropriate for ages 13 and up, and some knowledge of yoga is recommended, but not required.  Space is limited for this enjoyable event.  Each student must bring with them a a yoga mat, a blanket, and a water bottle.   Masks are optional - it is your choice to make.  One last Fall class will be offered on Saturday, November 12th, and students may attend one or all programs in this series, but they do need to sign up individually for each one here at our events list when registration is open.  These programs are not cumulative and there is no virtual option for them.

Marianne Zullas is a Yoga teacher and a Reiki practitioner.  The mind/body connection has been a passion of hers since childhood.  Her goal is to offer her students the opportunity to dissociate from constant thinking in order to be in the present moment.  Marianne lives in Milton with her husband and two daughters.  We hope you might join her for a relaxing and informative hour!

Advance registration is required here and for questions, contact Jean Hlady, Head of Adult Services/Reference, at jbhlady@ocln.org or call (617) 898-4964.  This event is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is part of our initiative called "Milton Moves" which promotes wellness, fitness, and healthy eating.

The talented Singer Gordon Michaels can best be described as "Powerful" which is a word that most people would use to tell us about his smooth baritone voice.  Today he will give a one-hour concert with his effortless delivery and stylistic range which is amazing!  Gordon is comfortable singing Broadway ballads, jazz standards and gospel, and is a real treat for those lucky enough to enjoy one of his performances.  He is a gregarious southern gentleman at heart and truly an entertainer that will leave you wanting more, although now he lives in the Boston area.  Gordon's talents have also garnered numerous awards including lst place in the 2000 Encore Silver Note Sing Off as well as lst place in the 1996 Searching for the Stars competition.  He has been nominated twice for best male vocalist for jazz & gospel by the Boston Music Awards, and is the recent 2009 Boston Winner of the David Foster singing contest.  This vocalist is a wonderful performer who we are sure you will all love!

Mr. Michaels will be performing with a pianist.  You do not want to miss this event!  At this concert, Mr. Michaels' repertoire will be appropriate for all ages, as tunes from The Great American Songbook, pop hits, Broadway and more will be part of the material performed - please join us!

This program is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is free and open to all.   (It will be not available via Zoom although Milton Access Cable TV will be filming it to be viewed as "on demand" at a later date.)

Please note that you no longer need to sign up to attend these concerts - just come visit us in person to enjoy some music!

This will be a one-hour Zoom "Creative Virtualization" meditation class for adults with Instructor Amy Rutledge of California.  This program will teach us how to set our personal goals for 2023 and the importance of mindfulness and gratitude as part of this process.  "Creative Virtualization" is one of the fastest ways to re-program your subconscious beliefs and to reach your goals faster!  This meditation workshop is a powerful and fun way to uncover your heart's deepest desires and intentions for your life.  Not only will this technique make you feel really good in the moment, but it will also help set clear goals so that you take take inspired action in achieving your desires.

Participants will be guided through the creative visualization meditation where Amy will show them how to visualize on all levels what it will feel like to have already achieved what they are hoping for, and most importantly to feel good!  At the end will be a question and answer period, and it is recommended that you have a journal handy to write down any insights that may come up as you go through this process with us.  

Advance registration is required to participate in this workshop, and once signed up, a Zoom connection link will be Emailed to you on the day of the program.
