misc_none 2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Boston's Cycling Craze: Author Talk with Larry Finnison     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757   
   

During the late 19th century, the popularity of bicycles for sport grew dramatically, and Boston played a major role in that early era of cycling.  Author Lorenz J. Finison shares the history of those times when he presents his book, Boston's Cycling Craze, 1880-1900: A Story of Race, Sport, and Society.  The Boston Bicycle Club was the first in the nation, and city cyclists formed the nucleus of a new national organization; the League of American Wheelmen.  Massachusetts had the largest per capita membership in the league, and the largest percentage of women members.  Mr. Finison, founder of the organization "Cycling Through History," explores the remarkable rise of Boston cycling through the lives of several enthusiasts including local women who were prominent in the world of cycling, while challenged by the ongoing debates addressing their rights as women.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library, is open to the public, and the library is located at 476 Canton Avenue, Milton.  For more information, call (617) 698-5757, x. 3 (Reference Department).

Milton author Hallie Ephron will talk about her new book called "Night Night, Sleep Tight" in a one-hour presentation.  New York Times best selling author Ephron's novels have been called "gripping" by the Boston Globe, "snaky, unsettling" by the Seattle Times, and filled with "intensive, sustaining suspense" by the Lansing State Journal.  With this new novel, she delivers her most captivating mystery yet, tinged with Hollywood glamour and set in a town where fame and infamy are often interchangeable.  Los Angeles 1985: Deirdre Unger makes the drive from San Diego to Beverly Hills to help her screenwriter father put his dilapidated house on the market.  She is expecting to deal with his usual kvetching and dark moods, but she gets a lot more than she expected.  In a cruel Sunset Boulevard-ian twist, Deirdre arrives home to find her father face down in his too-small swimming pool - dead.  To find out more, come to this event and hear more about the plot by the author.  Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing also.  This program is free and open to all, and is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Enhance your little one’s love of music during this special bonding time. Each class will have songs, dances, and movement games that will excite your budding musician.  Music is proven to aid in a child’s development and language skills as they practice new vocabulary, the rhythm and structure of speech, and tonality.  Along the way, you’ll be building a repertoire of cheerful songs that will instill a lifelong love of music.

Session one of two we'll be offering this morning. Registration is required, is limited to 20 children (with caregiver), and will open three weeks before the session.

There will be a film screening tonight of the documentary Girl Rising.  This is a program appropriate for both a young adult and adult audience.   Travel the globe to meet nine unforgettable girls - striving beyond circumstance, pushing past limits.  Their dreams, their voices, their incredible stories are captured in a film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to changed the world.  Girls featured include Ruksana, an Indian pavement-dweller whose father sacrificies his own basic needs for his daughter's dreams; Sokha, an orphan who rises from a life in a Cambodian landfill to become a star student and accomplished dancer; and Suma, who writes songs to help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to liberate others.   More than a film, Girl Rising is the heart of a movement that is spreading around the world promoting this powerful truth: educating girls in the developing world can transform families, communities, entire countries and break the cycle of poverty in just one generation.  Please join us for a very inspiring evening to view this excellent documentary.  And please bring your teen daughters along.   The film is rated PG13 for thematic material including disturbing images, and the running time is 103 minutes.  It will start promptly at 6:30 PM.  The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

    Contact: Jean Hlady   (617) 698-5757   
   

Tonight there will be a free screening of the very entertaining film, "The Hundred Foot Journey."  Starring Academy Award winner Helen Mirren, produced by Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake, and directed by Lasse Hallstrom, this uplifting story bursts with flavor, passion and heart.  When the chilly chef proprietress of the Michelin-starred French restaurant in southern France gets wind of a culinary immigrant opening an Indian restaurant just 100 feet from her own, her icy protests escalate to all-out war between the two establishments.  It's a celebration of triumph over exile as these two worlds collide and one young man tries to find the comfort of home in every pot - wherever he may be  The movie is rated PG for thematic elements, some violence, language and brief sensuality, but it is appropriate for all ages.  The running time is 122 minutes and this program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
