As enthralling for adults as for children young and old, this film is a wonder of magical storytelling and visual splendor.

We will be discussing Son of the Mob by Gordan Korman.  Copies of this title will be available in the lobby starting 3 weeks prior to the discussion. 

Vince Luca is just like any other high school guy. His best friend, Alex, is trying to score vicariously through him; his brother is a giant pain; and his father keeps bugging him to get motivated. There is just one thing that really sets him apart for other kidsæhis father happens to be the head of a powerful crime organization.  How is he supposed to explain to a girl what his father does for a living? But when Vince finally meets one who seems to be worth the trouble, her family turns out to be the biggest problem of all. Because her father is an FBI agent-the one who wants to put his father away for good.

The True Story behind one of the country’s oldest families...and longest running urban legends.  Thirty miles from New York City lives a forgotten indigenous people, shrouded in mystery and discrimination, fighting for recognition as Native Americans. AMERICAN NATIVE exposes one indigenous community’s efforts to gain recognition as a Native American tribe from the Federal Government and the private interests colluding behind the scenes to prevent them from doing so. Through expert interviews and unbridled access to the tribe, AMERICAN NATIVE provides an in-depth look at the complex past, volatile present and endangered future of the Ramapough Lenape Nation. A brief business meeting of the Genealogical Society of Rockland County will precede the film.

This is a low-key book club for beginner readers in grades K-2. No reading is needed beforehand. Mrs B reads a book aloud, and the group follows along in their copies, which are provided at the meeting. We discuss themes, parts of a book, sequencing, illustration, and talk about what we liked about the book.  Then we do a craft related to the story and have a light snack. If there's time, we read a second book.  There is no pressure for anyone to read aloud or be put on the spot!

This is a low-key book club for beginner readers in grades K-2. No reading is needed beforehand.

If there's time, we read a second book.  There is no pressure for anyone to read aloud or be put on the spot!

    Contact: Brian Jennings   x127   bjennings@rcls.org
   

Ireland’s Great Hunger and the Irish Diaspora is an hour-long documentary, narrated by actor Gabriel Byrne, that explores not just the potato failure that lead to mass starvation, death, and emigration in Ireland from 1845 to 1852, but the historical, social and political circumstances that made what is misleadingly called the great “famine” almost inevitable.  The documentary views the history of An Gorta Mòr – the great hunger -- partly through the eyes of descendants of those who survived it, as well as descendants of those who fled Ireland through the Canadian quarantine station at Grosse Ile, Quebec in 1847, and those whose maternal ancestors emigrated to Australia under the Earl Grey scheme, 1849 – 52.  The documentary also features the voices of several leading scholars of Irish history, including Declan Kiberd (UC Dublin; Notre Dame), Christine Kinealy (Quinnipiac), Ciaran O’Murchadha (author of The Great Famine: Ireland’s Agony 1845-1852), Mike Murphy (University College Cork), Richard Reid (Historian, National Museum of Australia).  The documentary is filmed and edited by Rebecca Abbott and co-produced by Liam O’Brien, both of Quinnipiac University’s Film, Television and Media Arts Department.  New City's Tom Riley author of several books related to the Orphan Train Riders will moderate a discussion after the film.
