"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.

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

"Young and Innocent" (American title: "The Girl was Young") was Hitchcock's follow-up to "39 Steps" (1935) after his first successful film, "The Man Who Knew Too Much"(1934). The memorable opening scene features a man and a woman engaged in a violent argument atop a cliff overlooking the sea as a storm rages on. The next scene opens the following morning with a lifeless body of a woman floating in the surf.  Robert Tisdall (Derrick DeMarney) is thrown into a series of extraordinary circumstances when he becomes the first person to discover the body.  He immediately becomes the suspect when two women strolling on the beach observe him fleeing the crime scene.  Who is the real killer?

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.

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

    Contact:    1-866-941-8188   
   

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

Starring Nova Pilbean, Derrick De Marney, Percy Marmont and Edward Rigby

"Young and Innocent" (American title: "The Girl was Young") was Hitchcock's follow-up to "39 Steps" (1935) after his first successful film, "The Man Who Knew Too Much"(1934). The memorable opening scene features a man and a woman engaged in a violent argument atop a cliff overlooking the sea as a storm rages on. The next scene opens the following morning with a lifeless body of a woman floating in the surf.  Robert Tisdall (Derrick DeMarney) is thrown into a series of extraordinary circumstances when he becomes the first person to discover the body.  He immediately becomes the suspect when two women strolling on the beach observe him fleeing the crime scene.  Who is the real killer?

Their sound is soulful, passionate, and filled with infectious energy, while at the same time inventive and thought provoking in its concept, thereby capturing the spirit of artistic creativity.

The rhythms of Latin America, the Caribbean IslandsAfrica, and the African-American musical genres of rhythm and blues, gospel, funk, and the blues permeate the sound of this electrifying ensemble, whose “jazz with a world beat” approach leaves your heart dancing long after your feet have stopped.

Join us for a presentation on teaching Sign Language to children and students with autism.

Children with autism do not acquire language in the same way as their typically developing peers. Many children are taught alternative means of communication. Sign language is the response form that most closely resembles vocal speech and there is evidence that some children's spoken language is enhanced by the use of sign language. Why, then, does it seem to fail in so many autism programs? The answer lies in the way sign is being taught. This workshop will address correct and incorrect teaching procedures and how to get effective results for your child or student.

Please bring Tax Forms & Supporting Records:

  • Copy of last years tax return (particularly if taxpayer itemized deductions in the prior year or if there is a capital loss carryover)

Beautiful Ruins: A Novel by Jess Walter

lib_book_pencil 10:30 AM  -  12:00 PM Book Discussion: Submission by Amy Waldman Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Reimagining 9/11 and its aftermath, Amy Waldman's provocative novel begins with a resonant scene: a jury gathers in Manhattan to choose a memorial for the victims of a devastating Islamic terrorist attack. After tense deliberations, they select the Garden, which features trees both living and made from salvaged steel. Then the jury discovers that the anonymous architect who created the winning design is an American Muslim.

The revelation triggers both fury and ambivalence throughout New York, making the designer the staunchly independent Mohammed "Mo" Khan a symbol of beliefs that seem foreign to him. His most visible defender is Claire Harwell, the only member of the selection committee who lost a loved one in the attack. Cool and eloquent, Claire grows increasingly frustrated by Mo as he stubbornly refuses to answer concerns about the origins or meaning of his design

As the emotional rhetoric escalates, The Submission becomes a mesmerizing meditation on the human experience. 

Copies of Submission will be available at the Circulation Desk.

Commemorating the Centennial of World War I and African American Heritage Month

Men of Bronze is the definitive story of the black American soldiers of the 369th combat regiment, known as the "Harlem Hellfighters," who served with the French Army in World War I. Although relegated to non-combat duty by the U.S. Command, the 369th was sent to France and spent more time in front-line trenches than any other American infantry unit. Fighting alongside French, Moroccan and Senegalese soldiers at the campaigns of Champagne-Marne and Meuse-Argonne, the courageous men of the 369th distinguished themselves in some of the fiercest battles of the Great War. Men of Bronze uses photographs, interviews with veterans, and film from the French and American National Archives to recount the sage of the "Harlem Hellfighters," offering an inspiring tribute to these unsung heroes and an unforgettable look at World War I.

Girl in Hyacinth Blue by Susan Vreeland

A professor invites a colleague from the art department to his home to view a painting he has kept secret for decades in Susan Vreeland's powerful historical novel, Girl in Hyacinth Blue.  The professor swears it's a Vermeer -- but why exactly has he kept it hidden so long? The reasons unfold in a gripping sequence of stories that trace ownership of the work back to Amsterdam during World War II and still further to the moment of the painting's inception.

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.

"And Then What Happened?"

This is a collection of short stories in a variety of genres

"Weights and Measures" by Jodi Picoult

This story is a study in grief, and follows a couple as they try to cop in the days and weeks following their seven-year old daughter's death.  It is the sharp observations of small things which underline their loss and makes this story so poignant, and anyone who has experienced a tragic loss of this kind will recognize the feelings experienced by the characters.

lib_book_pencil 10:30 AM  -  12:00 PM Book Discussion: Horned Man by James Lasdun Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

The Horned Man opens with a man losing his place in a book, then deepens into a dark and terrifying tale of a man losing his place in the world.  As Lawrence Miller an English expatriate and professor of gender studies tells the story of what appears to be an elaborate conspiracy to frame him for a series of brutal killings, we descend into a world of subtly deceptive appearances where persecutor and victim continually shift roles, where paranoia assumes an air of calm rationality, and where enlightenment itself casts a darkness in which the most nightmarish acts occur. As the novel races to its shocking conclusion, we follow Miller as he traverses the streets of Manhattan and the decaying suburbs beyond, in terrified pursuit of his pursuers. Written with sinuous grace and intellectual acuity, The Horned Man is an extraordinary, unforgettable first novel by an acclaimed writer and poet of unusual power. 

The Horned Man eerily pre-figures Give Me Everything You Have, Lasdun's memoir about his experience with a graduate student, an event that happened several years after he published The Horned Man.
