    Contact: Information Desk   503-588-6052   library@cityofsalem.net
   

Cascadia Concert Opera returns to present The Old Maid and the Thief by Gian Carlo Menotti. For Cascadia this is a special production, because it will be costumed and fully staged. The Old Maid and the Thief, composed as an opera for radio in 1939, comes from early in Menotti’s career. Its accessible music, and the comic English libretto, written by the composer, make this short opera an audience favorite.

Menotti was an Italian-American composer of the mid-20th century. Among his 26 operas, he is best known for his Christmas classic, Amahl and the Night Visitors.

This performance, sponsored by the Friends of the Salem Public Library, is free and open to the public. Seating is available on a first-come, first-seated basis. For additional details, call 503-588-6052.

August book: "The Dairy Queen" by Catherine Gilbert Murdock - A lot is coming at 15-year-old D.J. Schwenk of Red Bend, Wisconsin. She’s basically running her family farm on her own. All  her family members and her best friend are acting weird. And now, she’s been maneuvered into training the lazy quarterback for the rival football team and her feelings about Brian Nelson are anything but easy to understand.

Middle and high school-aged youth are invited to weigh in and share their thoughts about some great books. Copies of the next book are available at the Teen Scene Desk.

Getting on the email list for meeting reminders is as simple as contacting Teen Scene Librarian Sonja Somerville at ssomerville@cityofsalem.net or 503-588-6083.
