misc_none 2:00 PM Fazana Saleem-Ismail on What it Means to Be a Muslim     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Gail Sacco   765-2791   
   

Co-sponsored by the Voorheesville Public Library

As a practicing Muslim with a group of friends who are diverse in terms of race, ethnicity, and religion, Fazana strongly believes that to reduce barriers and build bridges between people of different backgrounds, they must have opportunities to interact with each other.  Given that Islamophobia is on the rise in the US, she has taken it upon herself to meet with various groups to educate them about Islam.  Since January 2016, she has conducted a number of different presentations for a variety of audiences and participated in a few "Ask a Muslim" events.  Because she is deeply committed to engaging in dialogue, Fazana is currently being trained by the Islamic Networks Group (ING) to become a certified speaker on Islam.  She is the chair of the speaker’s bureau/community education committee of the Capital District Coalition Against Islamophobia and is a founding member of the Albany chapter of the Sisterhood of Salaam/Shalom.

The views expressed by the presenter are her own, meant to foster understanding.

VPL/lib_book_disc_2 7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM Fiction Book Discussion*     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Gail Brown   765-2791   gail.brown@voorpl.org
   

The fiction book discussion group meets each month to carefully analyze the current selection in a warm and welcoming setting.  The group also eats. To join one or all monthly meetings, paperback copies of the book are available at the reference desk for $5. This program is funded by the Friends of the Library. 

 

From the beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning author--now in the fiftieth year of her remarkable career--a brilliantly observed, joyful and wrenching, funny and true new novel that reveals, as only she can, the very nature of a family's life. "It was a beautiful, breezy, yellow-and-green afternoon." This is the way Abby Whitshank always begins the story of how she fell in love with Red that day in July 1959. The whole family--their two daughters and two sons, their grandchildren, even their faithful old dog--is on the porch, listening contentedly as Abby tells the tale they have heard so many times before. And yet this gathering is different too: Abby and Red are growing older, and decisions must be made about how best to look after them, and the fate of thehouse so lovingly built by Red's father. Brimming with the luminous insight, humor, and compassion that are Anne Tyler's hallmarks, this capacious novel takes us across three generations of the Whitshanks, their shared stories and long-held secrets, all the unguarded and richly lived moments that combine to define who and what they are as a family"--

The Dragonet Prophecy by Tui T. Sutherland

Sixth grader, Jason Zeliph, will be facilitating a peer led book discussion of the first book in one of his favorite series “Wings of Fire.” Clay and his friends have grown up under a mountain, secretly raised by the Talons of Peace to fulfill a mysterious prophecy. The five young dragons are destined to end the war that's been raging between the tribes of Pyrrhia, but how they'll do this, none of them knows. Not every dragonet wants a destiny. When one of their own is threatened, Clay and his friends decide to escape. Maybe they can break free and end the war at the same time or maybe they'll risk everything!

The evening will begin with a pizza dinner (pizza, beverages and dessert provided by the library). Join Jason for an exciting evening of food, discussion, book-related activities, and fun. Please register and pick up a copy of the book at the Information Desk.

The Great Gilly Hopkins by Katherine Paterson

Eight grader, Krista Rivers, and her mother, Patricia, will be facilitating our next mother/daughter book discussion using the award-winning book, The Great Gilly Hopkins, which has just been recently made into a major motion picture. Eleven-year-old Gilly has been stuck in more foster families than she can remember, and she's disliked them all. She has a reputation for being brash, brilliant, and completely unmanageable, and that's the way she likes it! When she's sent to live with the Trotters, by far the strangest family yet, she knows it's only a temporary problem. Gilly decides to put her sharp mind to work and she’s determined to no longer be a foster kid. Before long, Gilly has devised an elaborate scheme to get her real mother to come rescue her. Unfortunately, the plan doesn't work out quite as she hoped.

A potluck dinner will begin at 6:00, please bring a dish to share. The discussion will start after dinner and the evening will conclude with a showing of the movie. Beverages and dessert provided by the Library. Join Krista and her mother for an exciting evening. Grades 6-8 with a mother, aunt, or grandmother are invited to register and pick up a copy of the book at the Information Desk. 

The library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families.

A gifted architect reluctantly begins a secret life devising ingenious hiding places for Jews in Nazi-occupied Paris

Like most gentiles in Nazi-occupied Paris, architect Lucien Bernard has little empathy for the Jews. So when a wealthy industrialist offers him a large sum of money to devise secret hiding places for Jews, Lucien struggles with the choice of risking his life for a cause he doesn't really believe in. Ultimately he can't resist the challenge and begins designing expertly concealed hiding spaces--behind a painting, within a column, or inside a drainpipe--detecting possibilities invisible to the average eye. But when one of his clever hiding spaces fails horribly and the immense suffering of Jews becomes incredibly personal, he can no longer deny reality.

Written by an expert whose knowledge imbues every page, this story becomes more gripping with every life the architect tries to save.

A gifted architect reluctantly begins a secret life devising ingenious hiding places for Jews in Nazi-occupied Paris

Like most gentiles in Nazi-occupied Paris, architect Lucien Bernard has little empathy for the Jews. So when a wealthy industrialist offers him a large sum of money to devise secret hiding places for Jews, Lucien struggles with the choice of risking his life for a cause he doesn't really believe in. Ultimately he can't resist the challenge and begins designing expertly concealed hiding spaces--behind a painting, within a column, or inside a drainpipe--detecting possibilities invisible to the average eye. But when one of his clever hiding spaces fails horribly and the immense suffering of Jews becomes incredibly personal, he can no longer deny reality.

Written by an expert whose knowledge imbues every page, this story becomes more gripping with every life the architect tries to save.

INTO GREAT SILENCE

A FILM BY PHILIP GRÖNING

162m

(2006)

Only in complete silence, one starts to hear.
Only when language resigns, one starts to see.

"Nestled deep in the postcard-perfect French Alps, the Grande Chartreuse is considered one of the world’s most ascetic monasteries. In 1984, German filmmaker Philip Gröning wrote to the Carthusian order for permission to make a documentary about them. They said they would get back to him. Sixteen years later, they were ready. Gröning, sans crew or artificial lighting, lived in the monks’ quarters for six months—filming their daily prayers, tasks, rituals and rare outdoor excursions. This transcendent, closely observed film seeks to embody a monastery, rather than simply depict one—it has no score, no voiceover and no archival footage. What remains is stunningly elemental: time, space and light. One of the most mesmerizing and poetic chronicles of spirituality ever created, INTO GREAT SILENCE dissolves the border between screen and audience with a total immersion into the hush of monastic life. More meditation than documentary, it’s a rare, transformative theatrical experience for all."

    Contact: Gail Brown   765-2791   gail.brown@voorpl.org
   

Ada is ten-years-old and has left her one-room apartment. Her cruel mother is too humiliated by Ada’s twisted foot to permit her outside. When her little brother, Jamie, is shipped to the country out of London to escape the war, Ada sneaks out to join him. The siblings are forced upon Susan Smith, a woman used to having only herself to care for. So begins a new adventure for Jamie, Ada, and Susan. As Ada teaches herself to ride a pony, learns to read, and watches for German spies, she begins to trust Susan—and Susan begins to love Ada and Jamie. But in the end, will their bond be enough to hold them together through wartime? Or will Ada and her brother fall back into the cruel hands of their mother?

We are excited to have the author, Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, visit us virtually via Skype! She will be joining us after the potluck dinner. Bring a dish to share. Beverages and dessert provided. For children in grades 4-7 and their parents. Please register and pick up a book at the Information Desk.

"On a September day in Manhattan in 1939, twenty-something Caroline Ferriday is consumed by her efforts to secure the perfect boutonniere for an important French diplomat and resisting the romantic advances of a married actor. Meanwhile across the Atlantic, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish Catholic teenager, is nervously anticipating the changes that are sure to come since Germany has declared war on Poland. As tensions rise abroad - and in her personal life - Caroline's interest in aiding the war effort in France grows and she eventually comes to hear about the dire situation at the Ravensbruck all-female concentration camp. At the same time, Kasia's carefree youth is quickly slipping away, only to be replaced by a fervor for the Polish resistance movement. Through Ravensbruck - and the horrific atrocities taking place there told in part by an infamous German surgeon, Herta Oberheuser - the two women's lives will converge in unprecedented ways and a novel of redemption and hope emerges that is breathtaking in scope and depth"--

The West African Kora is a 21 string harp that is native to the Mandinka people of Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea and Guinea Bissau. It dates back 300 years, although some of the music comes from the middle 13th century around the founding of the Mandinka empire.

The fiction book discussion group meets each month to carefully analyze the current selection in a warm and welcoming setting.  The group also eats. To join one or all monthly meetings, paperback copies of the book are available at the reference desk for $5. This program is funded by the Friends of the Library. 

"Katharine Wright embodied the worldly, independent, and self-fulfilled New Woman of the early twentieth century, yet she remained in many ways a Victorian. Torn between duty and love, she agonized for months before making a devastating break with her world-famous and intensely possessive older brother Orville to marry newspaper editor Harry Haskell, the man she loved. Written by the grandson of Harry Haskell, Maiden Flight is imaginatively reconstructed from personal letters, newspaper reports, and other documents of the period--in particular, Katharine's lively and extraordinarily revealing love letters to Harry. Above all, the book celebrates Katharine's abundant store of what she called "human nature"--her lively and perceptive outlook on life, her great capacity for both love and indignation, and her acute and sometimes crippling self-awareness"--

    On a September day in Manhattan in 1939, twenty-something Caroline Ferriday is consumed by her efforts to secure the perfect boutonniere for an important French diplomat and resisting the romantic advances of a married actor. Meanwhile across the Atlantic, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish Catholic teenager, is nervously anticipating the changes that are sure to come since Germany has declared war on Poland. As tensions rise abroad - and in her personal life - Caroline's interest in aiding the war effort in France grows and she eventually comes to hear about the dire situation at the Ravensbruck all-female concentration camp. At the same time, Kasia's carefree youth is quickly slipping away, only to be replaced by a fervor for the Polish resistance movement. Through Ravensbruck - and the horrific atrocities taking place there told in part by an infamous German surgeon, Herta Oberheuser - the two women's lives will converge in unprecedented ways and a novel of redemption and hope emerges that is breathtaking in scope and depth"-- The Title of the book is: Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

In this “enjoyable, fast-paced tale” (The Economist), master historian David McCullough “shows as never before how two Ohio boys from a remarkable family taught the world to fly” (The Washington Post)and “captures the marvel of what the Wrights accomplished” (The Wall Street Journal). He draws on the extensive Wright family papers to profile not only the brothers but their sister, Katharine, without whom things might well have gone differently for them. Essential reading, this is “a story of timeless importance, told with uncommon empathy and fluency…about what might be the most astonishing feat mankind has ever accomplished…The Wright Brothers soars” (The New York Times Book Review).  

Please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book (cost $5.00).

The nonfiction book discussion group meets every other month (the second Monday at 7:00) to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

The author of Longitude (1995) presents a biography of the man Einstein called the father of modern physics, and the Church long branded a heretic, as revealed through the newly translated letters of his confidante daughter. Includes b&w illustrations of featured personalities, locales, and scientific paraphernalia, and a chronology demonstrating Galileo's legacy through the present. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book (cost $5.00).
