Join us as we welcome Matt Heaton for sing alongs on 5 Mondays: March 30th, April 6th, 13th, & 27th and May 4th.

Matt Heaton performs in the well-known Irish music duo of Matt & Shannon Heaton. But before noon, he is a skilled entertainer for kids, with a repertoire of kid-friendly folk & surf-inspired originals and reworked classics. Like musicians before him, he took a keen interest in music for kids after the birth of his son, leading engaging sing-alongs that he hoped adults could enjoy too. Armed with a bundle of new and traditional material he organized a whole lot of extra babysitting and created his new CD, “Happy You Made It.” “Happy” is a banquet of acoustic & electric guitars, toy drums & percussion, bouzouki, banjo & bodhran. The instruments share the stage in a lighthearted romp through twelve songs, a mix of originals and creative reworkings of standards.

These sing-alongs are funded by the Friends of the Library - thank you!

    Contact: Kevin O'Kelly   617.623.5000 x2961   kokelly@minlib.net
   

For centuries, many Muslim women felt they had to choose between feminism and their faith; they
believed that these two ideologies were mutually exclusive and incompatible. However, around the
world, Muslim women are reexamining the Qua'ran and discovering that it is possible to fight for their
rights from within the Islamic tradition. This talk will survey the strides that women are making to change
laws and social values so that women have a more equal role within the Muslim family.
Elizabeth Segran is a writer who received her Ph.D. in South and Southeast Asian Studies with a
specialization in Women, Gender and Sexuality from the University of California, Berkeley. She
contributes to The Atlantic, The Nation, Foreign Affairs and Salon.

Join us as we welcome Matt Heaton for sing alongs on 5 Mondays: March 30th, April 6th, 13th, & 27th and May 4th.

Matt Heaton performs in the well-known Irish music duo of Matt & Shannon Heaton. But before noon, he is a skilled entertainer for kids, with a repertoire of kid-friendly folk & surf-inspired originals and reworked classics. Like musicians before him, he took a keen interest in music for kids after the birth of his son, leading engaging sing-alongs that he hoped adults could enjoy too. Armed with a bundle of new and traditional material he organized a whole lot of extra babysitting and created his new CD, “Happy You Made It.” “Happy” is a banquet of acoustic & electric guitars, toy drums & percussion, bouzouki, banjo & bodhran. The instruments share the stage in a lighthearted romp through twelve songs, a mix of originals and creative reworkings of standards.

These sing-alongs are funded by the Friends of the Library - thank you!

    Contact: Vickie Rothbaum     rothbaumv@gmail.com
   

We are pleased to welcome Josephine Bolling McCall, author of "...too good a nigger!" My Father was Lynched in Lowndes County, Alabama.

The author tells the story of the murder of a black man in 1940s Lowndes County, Alabama.  It is a story that reveals the scheme to cover up a "lynching."  Josephine Bolling McCall's story of her father's murder presents convincing evidence that he was lynched, although he was not hanged, mutilated, or burned before a crowd of people.  Elmore Bolling was shot six times in the front of his body with a pistol and once in the back with a shotgun.

After years of research, including interviews with relatives and elderly Lowndes County residents, Josephine Bolling McCall sought and found answers to many troubling questions that she had about her family, especially about events in her father's life.  Her journey of discover presents a revealing narrative of a time, a place, and a people that challenges us to rethink the reality of life for both blacks and whites in a rural, southern community.

The author will be available for a book signing immediately after the presentaion.  This presentation is free and open to the public; no reservations are necessary.
