misc_none Wotiz Gallery Display by Painter Donna Elliot     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757   
   

During the month of July, there will be a modern painting exhibit by Milton artist Donna Elliot.  This summary comes from her website, which is http://ddivineexpression.com:  "Donna Elliott is spiritually connected to her Creator, with a real passion for life and humanity. She is a self-taught artist who painted her first piece, Emancipation, in January 2013.  Feeling the need to celebrate her freedom to express herself through art, she painted her next piece Celebration.  Her work is positive with beautiful, bold and vibrant colors which serves as a true reflection of herself.  Painting takes her away from everyday life and helps her to see and share the beauty of who we are and why we are here.  This is truly her "divine expression."  Please come and view this fun and colorful display this month.

misc_none 6:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Tuesday Night at the Movies: Bridge of Spies     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757, x.3   
   

Tonight there will be a free screening of the film "Bridge of Spies" starring Tom Hanks, starting promptly at 6:30 PM.  A dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events, this movie is "absolutely brilliant and totally riveting" (Bill Zwecker, Chicago Sun-Times).  James Donovan (Tom Hanks) is a Brooklyn lawyer who finds himself thrust into the center of the Cold War when the CIA sends him on a nearly impossible mission to negotiate the release of a captured American U-2 pilot.  High stakes and suspense power a story that captures the essence of a man who risked everything, vividly bringing his personal journey to life.  Mark Rylance won an Academy Award for his role as the alleged Russian spy.  This is rated PG-13 for some violence and brief strong language, and the running time is approximately 141 minutes.  The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

NOTE EARLIER START TIME - 6 PM - BECAUSE OF FILM LENGTH.

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.

"Star Wars - The Force Awakens" is a thrilling continuation of the space opera, when ex-stormtrooper Finn, scrappy desert dweller Rey, and droid companion BB-8 get caught up in a galactic war when they come across a map containing the whereabouts of the vanished Luke Sykwalker.  They soon embark upon an epic adventure that brings them face-to-face with heroes from the past, as well as new villains such as Kylo Ren and the First Order, a fascist regime that has emerged from the ashes of the old Empire.  Composer John Williams has continued his beautiful soundtrack with this movie, and it stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill.  Other actors are veterans Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Adam Driver.  It is rated PG-13 for Sci-Fi action and violence, and the running time is 2 hours and 16 minutes.  This program is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

 

PLEASE NOTE EARLIER START TIME - 6 PM - BECAUSE OF LENGTH OF FILM.

During the month of September, Milton photographer and resident Elizabeth Thomas will show her work in an exhibit called "A Journey Through the Scenic Nature Isle, The Commonwealth of Dominica."  This is what she says about her photos: "This British-born, Caribbean girl made a trip back home to the island she loves so much, even naming her daughter Dominique in its honor, a long awaited trip after an almost 20 year hiatus.   Filled with excitement, nervous and anxious anticipation, I once again walked the streets I did as a child, reconnected with long lost relatives and explored the island I love so much.  During my two week visit with my family, I saw the island with renewed eyes with my children on their first visit.  With my love of photography and the island I love so much I was able to capture about 2000 photos.  I would love to share images of the Nature Isle, Dominica, and share with all of Milton what makes thie place as special as it is."  Elizabeth will also raffle off one framed photo with 100% of the proceeds benefitting the Friends of the Milton Public Library, of which she is a member.  She will also have information about Dominica on hand and also local treats and snacks for sampling.  Please come and view this colorful and fun display.

misc_none 6:30 PM  -  8:30 PM Tuesday Night at the Movies: In the Heart of the Sea     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757   
   

The film "In the Heart of the Sea" will be shown this evening in a free screening.  In the winter of1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no-one could believe: a whale of mammoth proportions with an almost human sense of vengeance.  This real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, but Melville's book only told half the story.  Experience the harrowing aftermath as the pummeled crew battles storms, starvataion, and despair, and the men are forced to do the unthinkable in order to survive.  Ron Howard directs this astonishing true story based on the best-selling book by Nathaniel Philbrick.  Chris Hemsworth stars as the vessel's veteran first mate and Benjamin Walker is the ship's less-than-experienced captain.  The movie is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action and peril, brief startling violence, and thematic material.  The film is not suitable for children.  The running time is 122 minutes and so we are able to go       BACK TO OUR REGULAR START TIME OF 6:30 PM.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757   
   

The film "The Finest Hours" will be shown tonight in a free screening.  Based on the extraordinary true story of the greatest small-boat rescue in Coast Guard history, The Finest Hours is a tale of courage, loyalty and honor in the face of overwhelming odds.  When a massive storm strikes off the coast of Cape Cod, it rips a T-2 oil tanker in half, trapping more than 30 sailors on its rapidly sinking stern.  As Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine) and his crew set out in a 12-seat rescue boat to save them, Chief Engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) struggles to buy his men more time.  Packed with heroic larger-than-life action and driven by the men's faith in their mission, themselves and one another, The Finest Hours is a triumph.  It is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of peril and may not be suitable for children.   The running time is 117 minutes so please note BACK TO REGULAR START TIME OF 6:30 PM.   This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

misc_none 2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM From the Shadow of JFK: The Rise of Beatlemania in America with Aaron Krerowicz     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757   
   

Many Beatles authors have cited John F. Kennedy's assassination on 22 November 1963 as a cause of the Beatles' sudden popularity in the United States in early 1964.  Their logic: Kennedy's assasination made America sad, then the Beatles made America happy again.  But this commonly accepted answer is overly simplistic.  America has suffered numerous tragedies and rebounded each time, but the popularity and staying power of the Beatles remains unmatched in American history.  The real answer is that Kennedy's life and death inadvertently primed the nation for the Beatles' arrival and success.  This 60-minute program will explain how and why.  Beatles scholar Aaron Krerowicaz graduated from Butler University with a Bachelor's of Music in 2008, then earned a Master's of Music from Boston University in 2010, and a Graduate Artist Diploma from the University of Hartford in 2012.  While still a student in Connecticut, he won a research grant through the University to study the Beatles.  Since then, he has made a full-time career of presenting his research and analysis of the band's music and their place in history, and has presented his findings more than 200 times throughout the U.S. and New England.  He has published several books on the subject, and the most recent has the same title as this program, which was published in June 2015.  His works are for sale at Amazon.com and he has visited 14 states to deliver 86 presentations.  He made his first English lecture tour in July 2015, during which he spoke twice in London and thrice in Liverpool, the band's hometown.  Don't miss this interesting talk about a favorite band!  The event is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is free and open to the public.
