Third Thursday New London Art is a gallery and downtown walk event designed to showcase the fantastic artistic resources of New London. It will run the third Thursday of every month from April to November from 5:30 to 7:00 PM at the Public Library of New London, providing the sense of community for attendees.

Meet artist Aly Maderson Quinlog. She is a dynamic multi-disciplinary/multi-media artist, poet, and art educator. She grew up near Charleston, SC and attended Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography which she received in 2002. Her photographic work has been exhibited in Honolulu, HI and Tokyo, Japan. More recently she earned a Post Baccalaureate certificate in Painting from the Lyme Academy of Arts in Old Lyme, CT and her Master of Art Education from Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI. She teaches workshops on alternative process photography, poetry, and book arts throughout New England. Her work is deeply influenced by Riot Grrrl, underground comix, and drag culture. 

Quinlog’s instinctual art also based on decades of deep aesthetic studies will be on display at the library highlighting her works based in conventional Book Arts. She has studied Bookbinding at Rhode Island School of Design and learned less traditional book-making methods from a myriad of folks in the DIY, punk-influenced art scene.

    Contact: Suzanne Maryeski   860-447-1411 ext 5   smaryeski@plnl.org
   

A new book group has formed  to talk about the difficult issues of aging and death.  This month the selection is a memoir by Roz Chast  Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant? Chast is a cartoonist for the New Yorker & this title was on the New York Times best seller list for weeks. It is a very poignant book and yet laugh-out-loud funny at the same time.  The volume is full of wonderful illustrations by Chast and would probably be classified as a "graphic novel", except  this remarkable work is a memoir, not a novel.

Facilitators for the evening are Martha E. Marx, RN and Carol Sanders, MSW. Marx graduated from the UCONN School of Nursing and was a pediatric nurse at the beginning of her career. For the last 15 years she has worked in homecare, including hospice care. Marx is currently employed at the Visiting Nurse Association of Southeastern Connecticut (VNASC), is a first -term New London City Councilor and Chair of the Public Works Committee. She is the mother of four adult children.

Sanders has a Master’s in Social Work and a Master’s in Gerontology from the University of Southern California and works for the VNASC. She was also a social worker in a local nursing home and worked briefly for the Area Agency on Aging. Sanders is currently chairperson for the Senior Commission for the town of Waterford and has lived in SECT for 30 years.

Copies of the book will be available to borrow  at the Circulation Desk beginning  September 27.

Paola Sica will be taking about his book Futurist Women: Florence, Futurism and the New Sciences.

Futurism is once again ascendant. The Futurist aesthetics speaks powerfully and suggestively to contemporary debates about gender and fuels speculations about the posthuman condition. This aesthetics, as that of other international avant-garde movements, originated in specific geographical areas, but was modified by continuous negotiation with external trends. This study initially focuses on the local: the making of the self in the work by the women writers and artists who were affiliated with the journal L’Italia futurista during World War I in Florence. But then it broadens its field of inquiry to the global. It compares the achievements of these women with those of key precursors and followers. It also conceives these women’s work as an ongoing dialogue with contemporary political and scientific trends in Europe and North America, especially first wave feminism, eugenics, naturism and esotericism. 

Paola Sica is Professor and Chair of Italian Studies at Connecticut College, USA. Her publications, both in English and Italian, include a book on comparative modernism, Modernist Forms of Rejuvenation: Eugenio Montale and T.S. Eliot (2003), and various articles on twentieth-century literature and culture  - especially modernism and the avant-garde  - in such journals as Italica, Annali d'Italianistica, Modern Language Note, Yale Italian Poetry, Quaderni d'italianistica and Italian Quarterly. She has presented her work in numerous academic and cultural settings internationally, including the MLA convention and Columbia University in the United States; the ISSEI conference in Helsinki, Finland; Queen Mary, University of London, UK Istituto di Cultura Italiana in Toronto; and Dante Alighieri in Italy and the United States.

misc_none 10:00 AM  -  12:00 PM Writing for Digital — Web, mobile, email, Facebook Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Madhu Gupta   8604471411 x 3   mgupta@plnl.org
   

Digital is different. For one thing, it can move and speak (video). For another, it's action oriented: people click a lot; they read very little. What are today's best practices in this ever-evolving world? This non-technical overview of writing for digital media introduces key communications concepts from world-class web usability experts like Steve Krug (Don't Make Me Think) and Ginny Redish (Letting Go of the Words). It also explains in detail why a small animal welfare charity in Bangkok, Thailand, can now raise $350,000 every month in donations from American women 45 and older ... using Facebook alone. (Maybe you can do it, too!) The workshop covers best practices for donation landing pages. It shows why offers are so important in this clicker's playground. And it demonstrates how email and social media build a sense of family in your base and ultimately help you raise more money.

Presenter: Tom Ahern

Tom Ahern is an author and one of the world’s leading experts on donor communications. Each year, he delivers dozens of workshops to fundraisers internationally.
