About Fluff
At the turn of the twentieth century, Boston was a
booming candy town. Of all the tantalizing treats,
nothing has stuck around like Marshmallow Fluff.
Since that time, the small, family-run company
Durkee-Mower has churned out a century of Fluff
with the secretive air of Willy Wonka. Little has been
made of this extraordinary legacy—until now.
To author Mimi Graney, Fluff is more than a retro
ingredient. It is a story about the merits and pitfalls of
adaptation and innovation. Graney deftly brings the
factory floor to life, weaving a fascinating narrative
about New England’s forgotten candy industry,
changing social roles for women, the advent of
commercial radio and modern advertising, and the
supermarket revolution. Fluff has survived two world
wars, corporate attacks, nutrition battles, and the rise
and fall of manufacturing towns. The world has
changed around it, yet this icon remains the same.

Mimi Graney is the founder of What the Fluff?, a festival celebrating Marshmallow Fluff that draws
thousands annually. Her work in neighborhood economic development takes her to communities across
Massachusetts where she focuses on creative industries and food-based businesses. Her favorite way to
enjoy Marshmallow Fluff is by the melting spoonful in a mug of hot chocolate.

In a Sentimental Mood: The Songs of Duke Ellington
Take the A Train down to the Ventress Library on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. as we present “In a Sentimental Mood”, featuring the songs of one the world’s most famous jazz composers and performers, Duke Ellington.

John Murelle, baritone, and William  Merrill, pianist, will entertain audiences with a concert of familiar, and perhaps unfamiliar, songs by Duke Ellington. Author Mick Carlon will be telling the fascinating story of Ellington’s background and his music between songs performed by Murelle and Merrill.

Duke Ellington (1899-1974), the American composer and pianist, wrote over 2000 compositions. His jazz style moved in and out of the blues, gospel, popular and classical music. His more famous songs include “I’m Beginning to See the Light,” “Take the A Train,” “Satin Doll,” “In a Sentimental Mood”, “Mood Indigo” and “Solitude.” The songs of Ellington have not only endured the test of time, but keep fascinating audiences with their wildly imaginative melodies.

Ventress Library Cultural Series events are free and open to the public; no tickets are required. Doors will open at 1:45 on concert day. Light refreshments are served at a post-concert social hour. The library and new Program Room are handicapped accessible. For more information, please contact librarian Chris Woods, at 781-834-5535 or email cwoods@ocln.org and visit www.ventresslibrary.org. For more information on the performer please visit www.jmurelle.com

Singer and teacher John Murelle has been presenting highly acclaimed theme concerts throughout New England for the past decade. He has presented programs of the American Songbook, Italian Arias, Songs of Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona, German lieder and French mélodie.

William Merrill has established himself as one of Boston’s most sought-after and distinguished collaborative pianists.  Opera News has described his playing as “wonderfully subtle,” and The Boston Globe has praised his collaborative accompaniments as “supportive, elegant, and apparently effortless,” adding that, “in color, imagination, and above all, pertinence to the text, he was outstanding.”

Mick Carlon is in his 28th year of public school teaching. After 19 years of teaching English and journalism at Barnstable High School, he became an English teacher at Barnstable Intermediate School. His first young adult novel, Riding on Duke's Train, was published in December 2011; his second, Travels With Louis, about Louis Armstrong, was published in September, 2012.

    Contact: Kelsey Socha   781-834-5535   ksocha@ocln.org
   
Marshfield: Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 24th at 11 am for a premiere event: a Shakespearean acting workshop with Marshfield's own Bay Colony Shakespeare Company (http://www.baycolonyshakespeare.org).
 
Join us for a remarkable first time Ventress event: an acting workshop with Marshfield-founded Bay Colony Shakespeare Company. Tom Grenon, the BCSC's Education Director, will lead this two hour workshop for high schoolers and adults focusing on understanding Shakespeare's texts, relishing the words, and telling stories. The workshop will engage participants in performance, improvisation, group-building, and story-telling, and promises to be accessible for both passionate fans of the Bard and those coming to it for the first time. No acting experience is required to participate: all that participants need to bring with them is a willingness to play, try something new, and engage with the text. 
 
The event is free and open to high school students and adults; registration is required for this event.
 
 For more information, contact librarian Kelsey Socha at 781-834-5535 or ksocha@ocln.org and visit our website at ventresslibrary.org. Don't miss this fun-filled collaboration!
