When space shuttle astronaut Sally Ride landed after becoming the first American woman in space, NASA officials tried to present her with a bright red bouquet of roses during an elaborately choreographed homecoming ceremony at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. But Ride turned her back on the flowers, and went on to explain to the gathered reporters that she wanted to be treated no different from her male crewmates. “I’m just one of the guys,” she explained. This talk by Neil Maher explores not only the history of Ride’s historic flight, but also the important role played by the feminist movement during the 1960s and 1970s in pressuring NASA to admit women to its previously all-male astronaut corps. Just as women had marched, protested, and lobbied the halls of Congress during the 1910s for the right to vote, feminists during the 1960s era also took to the streets to demand equality for women in space.  This lecutre is made possible by Humanities New York.

Imagine that women have the right to choose all political representatives, removing from office anyone who doesn’t make wise decisions for the future. Living in a world free from violence against them, women will not allow a man to hold office if he has violated a woman. Economically independent, they have the final say in matters of war and peace and the absolute right to their own bodies.  This is not a dream. Haudenosaunee (traditional Iroquois) women have had this authority — and more — since long before Christopher Columbus came to these shores.  This lecture is provided by Sally Roesch Wagner, Professor, Syracuse University; Director, Matilda Joslyn Gage Center for Social Justice Dialogue.  This lecutre is made possible by Humanities New York.

Book:  Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.  In the year 2044, reality is an ugly place. The only time teenage Wade Watts really feels alive is when he's jacked into the virtual utopia known as the OASIS. Wade's devoted his life to studying the puzzles hidden within this world's digital confines—puzzles that are based on their creator's obsession with the pop culture of decades past and that promise massive power and fortune to whoever can unlock them. But when Wade stumbles upon the first clue, he finds himself beset by players willing to kill to take this ultimate prize. The race is on, and if Wade's going to survive, he'll have to win—and confront the real world he's always been so desperate to escape.  *Being adapted to a film in 2018 by Steven Spielberg

Body and Soul: An American Bridge aims to tease out the strands of this cultural knot by focusing on the early performance history of the jazz standard Body and Soul, one of the most recorded songs in the jazz repertoire.  58 minutes.

Cole, Jay, Kai, Lloyd, Nya and Zane are six Lego teens who have extraordinary skills. They are all gifted ninjas, and they spend their nights defending their island of Ninjago against a host of enemy invaders. During the day, however, they lead a much different life. Despite their heroic actions, they must go to school like ordinary teenagers, and in a lot of ways, this causes them more stress than the epic battles they undertake at night. How long will they be able to maintain a healthy balance between their superhero-style defenses and the more ordinary task of high school? No registration required.

Almost everyone is curious about dinosaurs, but if dinosaurs are extinct then how do we know anything about them? With your help, we are going to explain what we know about dinosaurs and how we know. The audience will examine a variety of dinosaur teeth, coprolites (fossil poop!), and bones as well as reenact events that could have changed the earth’s climate and brought about the end of the dinosaurs: volcanic eruptions and asteroid impacts. Fluffy, a 6-month old baby T. rex, will participate briefly in the show, and stay afterwards for a photo opportunity like no other! Recommended for preK and up. Registration required.

Proposal writing is the single skill most sought- after by savvy nonprofit managers.  On the one hand writing a grant proposal is quite simple and follows a basic formula.  On the other hand, this may be your only chance to put the case for funding your organization in front of a foundation.  So you want to be sure to do it right.  This basic introduction provides invaluable tips on what your proposal narrative and budget should include, how to let your funder take the lead, and the best advice on writing and submission techniques.

    Contact: Administration   (845) 485-3445 x3306   administration@poklib.org
   

David Grann discusses his newest book, Killers of the Flower Moon, about the Osage Indians, who, in the 1920s, became the wealthiest people in the world because of oil under their land in Oklahoma. They were then serially murdered off in one of the most sinister crimes in American history. The case became among the FBI’s first major homicide investigations. The FBI sent in a team of undercover agents, including one of the only Native Americans in the bureau. They eventually caught one of the masterminds. But, as Grann documents, there was deeper and darker conspiracy that the bureau never exposed.
