Meet the artist at a reception on Saturday, May 9th, from 2:00 - 4:00 pm.

Debora Santiago Bruno appreciates art in general styles.  Her love for photography is one of the most important aspects of her life.  Her work includes portrait, still life, nature, scenery, black and white, infrared, color and computer enhanced photography, though landscapes and architecture subjects are her favorites.  When she is shooting these elements, she tries to capture the best quality of light as possible to produce a result that is remarkable.

Debora has exhibited in many places such as the Middletown Public Library, Brookdale Community College, Guild of Creative Art, Art Alliance, Freehold Art Society, County Clerk's Office of Freehold, Monmouth Museum, Sea Bright Library, Manalapan Senior Center, Freehold Library, and the Law Offices of Lomuro, Davidson, Eastman & Munoz.  She has also had her work published in Collage Magazine and received honorable mentions in the MCAC Juried Art Show in 2003, and the Student Art Show at Brookdale Community College in 2005 and 2006.  She was awarded First Place for best alternative category for her piece entitled "Empire State Building" at the Photography Juried Show Open Eyesights, March 2007 and First Place in the 15th Juried Art Show at the Guild of Creative Art, Shrewsbury, NJ, in October 2007.

Judy Holliday won an Oscar for her portrayal of  Billie Dawn, a strident, dim-bulbed ex-chorus girl who is the mistress of millionaire junk tycoon Harry Brock (Broderick Crawford). In Washington to put a few senators and congressmen in his pocket (the better to lay the groundwork for an illegal cartel), the rude-and-crude Brock realizes that the unrefined Billie will prove an embarrassment.  Thus, he hires idealistic but impoverished Paul Verrell (William Holden) to pump some intelligence and "class" into Billie.  Paul does his job too well; by awakening Billie's social and political consciousness, he turns the girl into Brock's most formidable foe in his efforts to buy influence in Washinton D.C, Along the way, Paul and Billie fall in love. Listed among the American Film Institute's 100 funniest films of all time.  (103 mintues)

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.

Donald F. Weinstein, Ph.D., knows firsthand what life is like when living with aphasia, having suffered an Embolic Cerebrovascular Accident with Severe Aphasia in 2002. As his recovery progressed, he served as president of the National Aphasia Association. Now, he shares his message of hope with fellow sufferers and their caretakers.

His presentation will cover: anger and fear, re-regimentation of days; issues of dignity and humiliation, new family roles and more.

Dr. Weinstein documented his experiences recently in his book "My Stroke: 450 Days from Severe  Aphasia to Speaking, Reading and  Writing."

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!

"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.

elect_camera Enter the Third Dimension: 3D Photography by Joel Zimmerman Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact:    732-449-8877   
   

     Life always comes in 3D but photography rarely does!  Come see this unique new exhibit showcasing the anaglyph, good old fashioned red/cyan, 3D photography work of veteran record label art director Joel Zimmerman.

     Zimmerson was an Art Director in the music business, first at CBS Records and later at Sony Music where he worked with the likes of The Allman Brothers Band, Harry Connick Jr., Terence Blanchard, Train, Philip Glass, Keb' Mo, and Pearl Jam, and while working closely with Eddie Vedder, Jeff Ament, and Jeff's brother Barry, was nominated for a Grammy as Art Director for their Vitalogy package. It was a camera and photography that led to his interest in 3 dimensional images.

     In order to enjoy our unique exhibit and get the real 3-D effect,  it is necessary to view the photographs with red/cyan anaglyph glasses. So if you are already a fan of 3-D and are ready for a distinctive gallery experience, stop by and start viewing.   (3D glasses will be provided for viewing.)

    Contact:    732-431-5656   
   

This is Ng’s debut novel, about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee; their middle daughter, a girl who inherited her mother’s bright blue eyes and her father’s jet-black hair. Her parents are determined that Lydia will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue—in Marilyn’s case that her daughter become a doctor rather than a homemaker, in James’s case that Lydia be popular at school, a girl with a busy social life and the center of every party. What will happen to Lydia? What path will she choose or be chosen for her? A profoundly moving story of family, history, and the meaning of home, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, exploring the divisions between cultures and the rifts within a family, and uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.

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.

This is Ng’s debut novel, about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee; their middle daughter, a girl who inherited her mother’s bright blue eyes and her father’s jet-black hair. Her parents are determined that Lydia will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue—in Marilyn’s case that her daughter become a doctor rather than a homemaker, in James’s case that Lydia be popular at school, a girl with a busy social life and the center of every party. What will happen to Lydia? What path will she choose or be chosen for her? A profoundly moving story of family, history, and the meaning of home, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, exploring the divisions between cultures and the rifts within a family, and uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.

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:    732-431-5656   
   

Are you suffering from symptoms such as joint pain, joint stiffness and swelling? Arthritis, a degenerative joint disease, may be the cause.  Arthritis is characterized by breakdown of joint cartilage.  Cartilage is the part of the joint that cushions the ends of bones.  Without cartilage the joint bones will rub together creating pain and joint dysfunction.

Factors causing arthritis include:

  • Heredity- In some families, arthritis appears to be passed from one generation to another through genes that form abnormal cartilage, joint bones or joint shape.
  • Obesity- Excess body weight increases risk for developing arthritis although it may take 8-12 years before symptoms appear.
  • Injury or Overuse- Arthritis may develop in certain joints due to injury or overuse, for example, jobs requiring repeated knee bending appear to increase the risk of knee arthritis.
  • Age- Although age is considered a risk factor, recent research has shown that arthritis is not an inevitable part of aging.

Join us as Dr. Tom Gustafson from The Active Healing Center of Colts Neck discusses the topic of arthritis and how we can go about correcting this disease not only by learning about it but by also getting out there and moving better. Please call the library at 732-431-5656 or stop in at the Circulation Desk to register for this event.

    Contact:    732 431 7220 x7222   
   

Set on July 4, 1944, the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Talley’s Folly concerns two characters, Sally Talley, a nurse headed for self-imposed spinsterhood, and Matt Friedman, a liberal Jewish accountant fond of using comedy routines to mask his vulnerability. Bookish, erudite, totally honest and delightfully funny, Matt refuses to accept Sally's rebuffs and her fears that her family would never approve of their marriage. Charming and indomitable, he gradually overcomes her defenses, telling his innermost secrets to his loved one and, in return, learning hers as well. Gradually he awakens Sally to the possibilities of a life together until, in the final, touching moments of the play, it is clear that they are two kindred spirits who have truly found each other—two "lame ducks" who, in their union, will find a wholeness rare in human relationships.

This play is performed live by the Dragonfly Multicultural Arts Center.

Entrance doors open at 12:30pm.  Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  We request that attendees do not hold or reserve seats for others.  Library staff reserves a number seats for a limited time before performance.

Join us for a  lively discussion of ladies equestrian fashion from the Elizabethan period to modern day presented by Tracy Brennan.  This is an interactive program featuring a multi media presentation as well as reproduction garments.

Tracy Brennan brings with her more than 35 years of experience riding and training horses.  The past 10 of those years have been focused in the elegant art of riding aside.  She has Achieved Grade III of both “Equitation” and “Horse Knowledge and Care” from the Side Saddle Association (SSA) of the United Kingdom.  She has combined a traditional background with her own showing and training experience to develop teaching methods appropriate for the broad spectrum of North American sidesaddle interests.  Due to a past injury Tracy rides exclusively aside and while not actively showing any longer, participates in as many equestrian pursuits as possible with her wonderfully willing partner a 17 year old Thoroughbred named Beau.

In addition to her equestrian knowledge, Tracy is an experienced seamstress as well as an historical enthusiast.  This combination of interests has developed quite a devotion for all the history involved with sidesaddles from Habits, to saddles, to the horse itself.

lib_book3 10:30 AM  -  12:00 PM Euphoria by Lily King Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

National best-selling and award-winning author Lily King’s new novel is the story of three young, gifted anthropologists in the 1930s caught in a passionate love triangle that threatens their bonds, their careers, and, ultimately, their lives.

English anthropologist Andrew Bankson has been alone in the field for several years, studying a tribe on the Sepik River in the Territory of New Guinea with little success. Increasingly frustrated and isolated by his research, Bankson is on the verge of suicide when he encounters the famous and controversial Nell Stone and her wry, mercurial Australian husband Fen. Bankson is enthralled by the magnetic couple whose eager attentions pull him back from the brink of despair. 

Nell and Fen have their own reasons for befriending Bankson. Emotionally and physically raw from studying the bloodthirsty Mumbanyo tribe, the couple is hungry for a new discovery.  But when Bankson leads them to the artistic, female-dominated Tam, he ignites an intellectual and emotional firestorm between the three of them that burns out of anyone’s control. Ultimately, their groundbreaking work will make history, but not without sacrifice. 

Inspired by events in the life of revolutionary anthropologist Margaret Mead, Euphoria is a captivating story of desire, possession and discovery from one of our finest contemporary novelists.

ent_film-reel 1:30 PM  -  3:30 PM Shadows: a film about bullying Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Secrets come at a price, and bullying has to stop!

Join us for a premiere showing of this film that takes place in a private school and deals with the teasing and humiliation that students experience through bullying. Some choose to participate, others choose to watch, in spite of the fear of becoming the next target.  Some will step in, stand up for their friends and say 'no'.  

The vision of executive producers Cathy Jenkins, Debby Schwartz and Rafe Serebreny is to educate adults and children through film and acting.  Bullying has no age limit, and "Shadows" calls for parents and teachers to protect children's safety.  

The program will begin with an introduction to the film and the filmmaking process.  After the showing, there will be a question and answer session with members of the cast.

It's a summer's evening in Amsterdam, and two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant for dinner. Between mouthfuls of food and over the scrapings of cutlery, the conversation remains a gentle hum of polite discourse. But behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened.

Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families. As the dinner reaches its culinary climax, the conversation finally touches on their children. As civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple show just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love.

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.

lib_book3 10:30 AM  -  12:00 PM Little Failure by Gary Shteyngart Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Little Failure is the all too true story of an immigrant family betting its future on America, as told by a lifelong misfit who finally finds a place for himself in the world through books and words. In 1979, a little boy dragging a ginormous fur hat and an overcoat made from the skin of some Soviet woodland creature steps off the plane at New York’s JFK International Airport and into his new American life. His troubles are just beginning. For the former Igor Shteyngart, coming to the United States from the Soviet Union is like stumbling off a monochromatic cliff and landing in a pool of Technicolor.

Careening between his Soviet home life and his American aspirations, he finds himself living in two contradictory worlds, wishing for a real home in one. He becomes so strange to his parents that his mother stops bickering with his father long enough to coin the phrase failurchka—“little failure”—which she applies to her once-promising son. With affection. Mostly. From the terrors of Hebrew School to a crash course in first love to a return visit to the homeland that is no longer home, Gary Shteyngart has crafted a ruthlessly brave and funny memoir of searching for every kind of love—family, romantic, and of the self.

    Contact:    732-449-8877   
   

Harold Fry, a retired sales rep, beleaguered husband and passive observer of his own life, decides one morning to walk 600 miles across England to save an old friend. In playwright Joyce's first novel, Harold wins us over with his classic anti-heroism. Setting off on the long journey, he wears the wrong jacket, doesn't have a toothbrush, and leaves his phone at home--in short, he is wholly unprepared. But as he travels, Harold finally has time to reflect on his failings as a husband, father, friend, and this helps him become someone we, and his wife Maureen, respect.
