Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

    Contact: Brandon Priddy     priddyb@einetwork.net
   

Join us for a thoughtful book discussion of A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood.  George, an English professor, is unable to cope with the despondent, bereaved nature of his existence after the sudden death of his partner, Jim. Throughout the day, he has various encounters with different people that color his senses and illuminate the possibilities of being alive and human in the world.  When first released in 1964, it shocked many with its frank, sympathetic, and moving portrayal of a gay man in maturity during a time when the LGBTQ population was seldom represented. It now stands as a classic lyric meditation on life as an outsider.

Copies of the book will be available on display in the Magazine section near the Adult Circulation Desk.  Light refreshments will be served.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

For decades, Hollywood has turned to literature for inspiration and dedicated itself to recreating the same beloved characters again and again. But in an old town where everything is new again, these screen depictions have built lives of their own by adopting new personas, crossing genres, and even inspiring their own novels and movies. With an in-depth look of five classic characters (Elizabeth Bennet, Sherlock Holmes, Jay Gatsby, Dorothy Gale, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), we explore how cinema has reinvented these icons over the last century and influenced our perspective on the original characters and stories.

We will be viewing  the award-winning documentary The Healthcare Movie by the Canadian/American couple Laurie Simmons and Terry Sterrenberg. The Healthcare Movie provides the real story of the how the health care systems in Canada and the United States evolved to be so completely different, given that at one point they were exactly the same. The Healthcare Movie reveals the personal and emotional impact on Canadians who now have access to universal health care because of the heroism of people who took a stand nearly 50 years ago. It also reveals the continuing struggle in the United States between the fear of government intervention and the right to quality health care for all people. A discussion led by Norm Wien, former Vice President of Chidlren's Hospital of Pittburgh immediately follow the showing of the film.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

For decades, Hollywood has turned to literature for inspiration and dedicated itself to recreating the same beloved characters again and again. But in an old town where everything is new again, these screen depictions have built lives of their own by adopting new personas, crossing genres, and even inspiring their own novels and movies. With an in-depth look of five classic characters (Elizabeth Bennet, Sherlock Holmes, Jay Gatsby, Dorothy Gale, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), we explore how cinema has reinvented these icons over the last century and influenced our perspective on the original characters and stories.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

For decades, Hollywood has turned to literature for inspiration and dedicated itself to recreating the same beloved characters again and again. But in an old town where everything is new again, these screen depictions have built lives of their own by adopting new personas, crossing genres, and even inspiring their own novels and movies. With an in-depth look of five classic characters (Elizabeth Bennet, Sherlock Holmes, Jay Gatsby, Dorothy Gale, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), we explore how cinema has reinvented these icons over the last century and influenced our perspective on the original characters and stories.

For decades, Hollywood has turned to literature for inspiration and dedicated itself to recreating the same beloved characters again and again. But in an old town where everything is new again, these screen depictions have built lives of their own by adopting new personas, crossing genres, and even inspiring their own novels and movies. With an in-depth look of five classic characters (Elizabeth Bennet, Sherlock Holmes, Jay Gatsby, Dorothy Gale, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), we explore how cinema has reinvented these icons over the last century and influenced our perspective on the original characters and stories.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

The flowing sequence will help you build strength, increase flexibility, find mental focus, and teach you how to listen to your body. Each class will begin with warm up flows, followed by a creative standing/ balancing series, floor work and stretching, and ending with a savasana (a resting pose). We encourage the use of yoga props during practice. If you have a yoga block, a yoga strap or a hand towel you're welcome to bring them to class but they are not required. Each participant should bring a yoga mat, water and any yoga questions you may have.  We love to talk yoga and we look forward to seeing you on your mat soon!

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

For decades, Hollywood has turned to literature for inspiration and dedicated itself to recreating the same beloved characters again and again. But in an old town where everything is new again, these screen depictions have built lives of their own by adopting new personas, crossing genres, and even inspiring their own novels and movies. With an in-depth look of five classic characters (Elizabeth Bennet, Sherlock Holmes, Jay Gatsby, Dorothy Gale, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), we explore how cinema has reinvented these icons over the last century and influenced our perspective on the original characters and stories.

Mary Kaczorowski, Vocals, has performed for local performance groups such as the Tri-County Choir Institute and the Harmony Singers, and has trained under numerous vocal coaches, including Pittsburgh’s beloved Maureen Budway.

She is now happy to be sharing her talents with the public as a seasoned and professional vocalist. From Route 66 to Dear Prudence, she performs a wide variety of styles and genres that any crowd is sure to recognize and enjoy.
Cal Robol, Guitars & Backing vocals, is a former music educator and has performed numerous styles in the past, including jazz, acoustic, and rock. After a 10 year hiatus from performing, Cal is back in the groove again, teaming up with Mary to hit the circuit. Cal is a versatile jazz guitarist that covers many different flavors of jazz, including bop, latin, and blues. Cal studied jazz guitar at Duquesne University under the instruction of Mark Koch, where he not only learned and developed his skills on the guitar, but also gained a life long love of the jazz style where guitar is an inseparable part. His musical influences include the music of Joe Pass, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Wes Montgomery, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Lee Ritenour, Larry Carlton, the list goes on.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Squirrel Hillbillies
From deep within the urban forest of Pittsburgh's East End, the Squirrel Hillbillies often emerge to share their eclectic mix of folk, country and blues.
Rabidly social and clawingly curious, they relish opportunities to interact with diverse audiences. They have performed more than 250 shows, including appearances at the Three Rivers Arts Festival in Pittsburgh and the Leigh Folk Festival in England. Through a collaborative, nonlinear songwriting process, duo partners Jenny Wolsk Bain and Gary Crouth draw from personal experiences, third-hand stories, and vivid imaginations to craft songs that are unpredictable and quirky yet widely accessible. Their CDs have gotten radio play on stations across the US and around the world.

Red Beans & Rice Combo

Why are they called The Red Beans and Rice Combo, you might ask…because you can get fries or a biscuit with the combo but you’ll always choose the biscuit because that’s the way they roll— as they play a very cool mix of classic New Orleans R&B, 50’s rock ala Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry, Mose Allison, Tom Waits, Slim Galliard and Louis Jordan—SUPER FUN TUNES!

The Combo features the world celebrated early jazz stride pianist, Tom Roberts (a Foxburg regular) on piano, whistling, & vocals, along with Dave Klug on drums and his custom-built “Kluger Soundboard,” and Wayno on vocals, harmonica, & ukulele.  Mt. Lebanonites Dave and Wayno are also well-known artists.

The fun-loving , sharp-dressed band has been gigging around Pittsburgh for a little over a year, and quickly developed a reputation for delivering a danceable mix of New Orleans R&B, early rock & roll nuggets, and barroom ballads, with a jazzy dash of Tin Pan Alley, and a generous side of wit & humor.

Concerts will be held in the library's outdoor courtyard. In the event of rain, they will move inside.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

    Contact: Laurena Schultz, Public Services Librarian   412-531-1912   mtleblibrarian@einetwork.net
   

Mt. Lebanon native Bill Steigerwald’s thirty-six-year career as a journalist included stints with the Los Angeles Times, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.  His work has appeared in dozens of major American papers and in magazines as disparate as Reason, Family Circle, Men’s Journal, and Penthouse.  Join us this evening as he discusses his latest book, 30 days a Black Man: The Forgotten Story That Exposed the Jim Crow South. 

In 1948 most white people in the North had no idea how unjust and unequal daily life was for the 10 million African Americans living in the South. But that suddenly changed after Ray Sprigle, a famous white journalist from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, went undercover and lived as a black man in the Jim Crow South.  Escorted through the South’s parallel black society by John Wesley Dobbs, a historic black civil rights pioneer from Atlanta, Sprigle met with sharecroppers, local black leaders, and families of lynching victims. He visited ramshackle black schools and slept at the homes of prosperous black farmers and doctors. 

Six years before Brown v. Board of Education, seven years before the murder of Emmett Till, and thirteen years before John Howard Griffin’s similar experiment became the bestseller Black Like Me, Sprigle’s intrepid journalism blasted into the American consciousness the grim reality of black lives in the South.  Author Bill Steigerwald elevates Sprigle’s groundbreaking exposé to its rightful place among the seminal events of the early Civil Rights movement.   Light refreshments.

An Introduction to the Life of Benjamin Franklin

 

Benjamin Franklin has been referred to as “the first American.” Author, humorist, printer, publisher, inventor, philanthropist, diplomat, and statesman, he was the first resident of the British Colonies to achieve worldwide renown. The quintessential self-made man, he used that prominence to aid in the establishment of history’s most ambitious political experiment: the United States of America. Discover the life and impact of this extraordinary man. Presented by the Historical Society of Mount Lebanon

 

Jack Puglisi Bio:  Jack Puglisi is a public speaker who specializes in both United States and world history. He has given talks to many local organizations, including the Daughters of the American Revolution, AARP, and Kiwanis, as well as to schools and private groups. He organized and hosted a number of History Night lectures at his former place of employment, Borders Books and Music in Bethel Park. Recently, he has been teaching as an adjunct instructor for community education at Community College of Allegheny County on the subjects of the life of Abraham Lincoln and the American Civil War.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.
