Directed by Woody Allen

Colin Firth and Emma Stone star in this 1930s romantic comedy from director Woody Allen.  Stanley (Firth), an illusionist, is considered to be the greatest debunker of fake spiritualists.  He's asked to investigate a young woman named Sophie (Stone), who has many people convinced that she's a spirit medium. However, some believe she's perpetrating a hoax and swindling her devoted clients.  Stanley gets to know her, but the more time he spends with her, the more mystified he becomes.  Unable to uncover any trickery on her part, he begins to question whether she is really psychic.

Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, the Major leads a quiet life valuing the proper things that Englishmen have lived by for generations: honor, duty, decorum, and a properly brewed cup of tea. But then his brother’s death sparks an unexpected friendship with Mrs. Jasmina Ali, the Pakistani shopkeeper from the village. Drawn together by their shared love of literature and the loss of their spouses, the Major and Mrs. Ali soon find their friendship blossoming into something more. But village society insists on embracing him as the quintessential local and regarding her as the permanent foreigner. Can their relationship survive the risks one takes when pursuing happiness in the face of culture and tradition?

Directed by Ernst Lubitsch

Starring Greta Garbo, Melvyn Douglas, Edwin Maxwell and Bela Lugosi

Ninotchka is a brilliant comic satire about Communist Russia and the Stalin dictatorship.  Garbo is featured as a representative of the Commissar (Bela Lugosi) sent to Paris to investigate a curious delay in the sale of the Russian Imperial jewels.  Former Grand Duchess Swana (Ina Claire) is desperate to prevent the sale of the jewels.  She convinces her current, the Count (Melvyn Douglas), to assist her in recovering the jewels.  Of course, he can't resist a challenge and does his best to charm and seduce the beautiful Garbo, a cold no-nonsense Communist diplomat.

    Contact:    1-866-941-8188   
   

April 8th, 2015 is the 350th anniversary of the granting of the Monmouth Patent.  This legal document signed by governor Richard Nicolls did "give, confirm, and grant" the area that we know as Monmouth County to twelve individuals with the stipulation that they persuade "100 families at the least" to move to Monmouth County within three years.

Four of these individuals were Quakers who then encouraged other members of their religion to move to Monmouth from Rhode Island, Long Island, and Massachusetts.  Many of the Quakers came to Monmouth by sailing up the Navesink River to Black Point (then called Passage Point) near the north end of Navesink Avenue in Rumson.  This program will describe the Quaker migration to Monmouth County, why the Quakers were interested in Monmouth, and how they got here.

For Pandora, cooking is a form of love. Alas, her husband Fletcher, a self-employed high-end cabinetmaker, now spurns the “toxic” dishes that he’d savored through their courtship, and devotes hours each day to manic cycling. Then, when Pandora picks up her older brother Edison at the airport, she doesn’t recognize him. In the years since they’ve seen one another, the once slim, hip New York jazz pianist has gained hundreds of pounds. What happened? After Edison has more than overstayed his welcome, Fletcher delivers his wife an ultimatum: It’s him or me.

Rich with Shriver’s distinctive wit and ferocious energy, Big Brother is about issues both social and excruciatingly personal. It asks just how much sacrifice we'll make to save single members of our families, and whether it's ever possible to save loved ones from themselves.

    Contact: Reference Desk   732 431 7220 x7222   
   

Jazz vocalist Giacomo Gates 

"Mr. Gates is a solid example of a performer who is doing something that no one else does. He evokes an age (that I would hope is not so terribly bygone) when musicians were entertainers and entertainers were musicians, and a sense of humor was as important as a sense of rhythm." Will Friedwald in The New York Sun.

Giacomo Gates does more than sing "a bunch of songs." He is truly an entertainer, for all ages and styles, as audiences enjoy the music, the interaction on the bandstand between him and his musicians, the spontaneity, the humor, the stories about the music and composers, along with their relation to everyday life. People are smiling, having a good time, while thoroughly enjoying the music. What usually lacks in most of today's performances is obviously present... fun!

Aphasia:  a speech/language disorder that impairs a person’s ability to communicate.  Most commonly the result of a stroke, but can occur from any severe head injury

Join Donald F. Weinstein, Ph.D., the author of “My Stroke: 450 Days from Severe Aphasia to Speaking, Reading and Writing,” as he discusses what life is like when living with aphasia.  This program is important for aphasiacs and their caregivers, as well as professionals working with aphasiacs.

Topics include: anger and fear, re-regimentation of days, issues of dignity and humiliation, new family roles, and more.

Prior to suffering a stroke with severe aphasia in 2002, Dr. Weinstein was an educator: a teacher, principal, curriculum director, a research assistant in curriculum and instruction and an associate professor.  He was an educational consultant and the author of three books. As his recovery progressed, he served as president of the National Aphasia Association. Today, Don works diligently to bring hope to fellow sufferers and to encourage aphasiacs to become involved in aphasia organizations, giving voice to their concerns as aphasiacs.

"The Dream Lady of Wanalasset:  Ocean Township in Margaret Widdemer's Why Not? (1915)"

Though she considered herself a poet -- and shared the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1919 with Carl Sandburg, Margaret Widdemer (1884-1978) wrote more than 30 novels.  She counted among her friends other writers such as Ezra Pound, F.Scott Fitzgerald, T.S. Eliot, Thornton Wilder and Edna St. Vincent Millay. Having grown up in Asbury Park, the local area figures in some of Widdemer's work.

Stanley S. Blair, Ph.D., an associate professor of English at Monmouth University, will summarize Widdemer's novel Why Not?, most of which is set in "Wanalasset," a fictionalized version of Wanamassa as it was a century ago.  He also will discuss the novel's film adaptation and suggest their broader implications.  The inspiration for creative writing can be found in the commonplace if we're willing to elevate it to the level of imagination.

Registration is requested for this program by calling the library.

Elliot Rosenzweig, a respected civic leader and wealthy philanthropist, is attending a fundraiser when he is suddenly accosted and accused of being a former Nazi SS officer named Otto Piatek, the Butcher of Zamosc. Although the charges are denounced as preposterous, his accuser is convinced he is right and engages attorney Catherine Lockhart to bring Rosenzweig to justice. Solomon persuades attorney Catherine Lockhart to take his case, revealing that the true Piatek was abandoned as a child and raised by Solomon's own family only to betray them during the Nazi occupation. But has Solomon accused the right man? Two lives, two worlds, and sixty years converge in an explosive race to redemption that makes for a moving and powerful tale of love, survival, and ultimately the triumph of the human spirit.

BOOK AND A MOVIE
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: A Savannah Story  by John Berendt
 

 John Berendt's  account of a shooting on May 2, 1981 at one of Savannah’s grandest mansions reads like a novel yet it is a work of nonfiction.  Berendt skillfully interweaves a first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case into a modern classic.
  The 1997 movie adaptation of the book starring Kevin Spacey and John Cusack will be shown after the books discussion.
