April's Selection: The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan

Four mothers, four daughters, four families whose histories shift with the four winds depending on who's "saying" the stories. In 1949 four Chinese women, recent immigrants to San Francisco, begin meeting to eat dim sum, play mahjong, and talk. United in shared unspeakable loss and hope, they call themselves the Joy Luck Club. Rather than sink into tragedy, they choose to gather to raise their spirits and money. "To despair was to wish back for something already lost. Or to prolong what was already unbearable." Forty years later the stories and history continue

CLUE: THE MUSICAL brings the world's best-known suspects (Professor Plum, Miss Scarlet, Colonel Mustard, Mrs. Peacock, Mrs. White and Mr. Green) to life and invites the AUDIENCE to solve the mystery!  Just like the board game, at the start of the show, three cards are chosen to select the murderer, the weapon and the room in which the murder occurred -- then the audience (with the aid of a hard-nosed female detective and the deceased himself) has to try to figure out who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room and with what weapon. There are 216 possible solutions, so it's a different show every night!

   10:30 AM  -  11:30 AM Tai Chi  
   

Tai Chi is an internal form of martial art that is practiced for health and self defense.  Incorporating breathing with slow and fluid movements, the exercise connects the internal focus of the mind with the external control of the body.  Practicing Tai Chi ultimately leads to Improved Circulation, Better Balance, Greater Flexibility, Increased Energy and Reduced Tension.

Joseph has been practicing martial arts for more than 15 years.  He began his Tai Chi training in 1997 at Red Dragon Kung Fu Center under Sifu Rafael Gomez, and has been studying Tai Chi and Qigong extensively with Sifu Joseph Laracuenta since 2002.  “Our goal is to live a long and healthy life.  By focusing on ourselves we get to improve the quality of our life.  And by expressing that quality outward we get to improve the lives of others.” Joseph has also won numerous awards at the US Open Martial Arts Championship in Queens, NY, has performed Tai Chi at Citi Field, and has appeared as a guest on the Project Independence Radio Show 88.1FM WCWP.

Tai Chi is an internal martial art that is practiced for health and self defense.  It incorporates both slow moving exercise and stillness practice.  By connecting our breathing with our movements, we strengthen our ability to focus on each moment.

Tai Chi is an internal martial art that is practiced for health and self defense.  It incorporates both slow moving exercise and stillness practice.  By connecting our breathing with our movements, we strengthen our ability to focus on each moment.

Lauren Skelly Bailey
 
   

Thanks to the New York State Council for Arts, and the Huntington Arts Council, this summer ceramic artist Lauren Skelly Bailey will be featured at the Great Neck Library as part of her Creative Communities Grant project. In her statement Lauren describes her work as exploring methods of making assemblage sculptures, conglomerations, installations, and figurines. I consider myself as an explorer, seeking new ways of layering, swirling, forcing, bending, breaking and reusing surfaces. A conversation between elements of nature emerges from her practice: flora, fauna, rocks, and the tooled objects made by man are called to mind. In combining them, I forge a new perspective of these elements.

Lauren’s project entitled, “Coral Awareness,” will take shape in two parts the first is a gallery exhibition featuring new sculptures created from research on the effects global warming has had on corals. In this research Lauren found that corals emit their own algae tissues resulting in the coral turning completely white. From this research Lauren will be creating three installations focusing on the metamorphosis of healthy corals to bleached corals. The second portion of Lauren’s grant project will involve the public; she will be hosting two workshops at the library for adults 16+. Each workshop will supply all materials for the duration of the workshop. The first workshop (6/26 12-2pm) attendees will hand painting ceramic tiles with coral inspired imagery and learn about the effects of global warming on corals. The second workshop (6/28 12-2pm) will involve, hand-painting patterns on hand pressed clay, sweeping up the clay into ribbons, and manipulating these ribbons into coral sculptures. Both workshops involve some firing off site at Lauren’s ceramic studio and the works will be displayed in the library gallery for viewing post firing.  Please make sure to register for these limited engagements prior to the workshop to ensure there are enough materials for each attendee.

June Selection: 1984 by George Orwell

Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, his dystopian vision of a government that will do anything to control the narrative is timelier than ever...

The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.

Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thoughtcrimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can’t escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching...

A startling and haunting vision of the world, 1984 is so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the influence of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.

   2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM The States We’re In: What’s In A Place Name?
presented by Mankh
 
   

More than half of the United States is named from Native words and places yet rarely are the actual Native Peoples and their traditions acknowledged. This presentation will bridge the gap between name and Peoples, place and respect for the environment aka Mother Earth, revealing how geopolitics and resource extractions have mis-shaped the sacred land, air, and waters. Other state names reflect the colonial royalty mindset and foreign religion, and it is this dynamic tension that is still playing out in our everyday lives. Monuments and signs also perpetuate misperceptions, while sports team names allow centuries of racism to linger. How united are the United States and what can be done to heal the long-standing divisions?

Mankh (Walter E. Harris III) is a writer, editor, small press publisher, and Turtle Islander. He is the author-editor of 17 books, as well as resident poet and essay contributor at axisoflogic.com. He teaches haiku, brush calligraphy, and more. Mankh enjoys learning about cultural traditions worldwide, plus music, meditation, munchies, and more. His literary website: www.allbook-books.com

Film Historian Philip Harwood discusses the wonderful  films of Astaire and Rogers, with clips from  such films as Top Hat, Swing Time, Shall We Dance, The Barkleys of Broadway, and others.

Philip Harwood is a Film Historian and lectures on film at LIU: Post, where he is an Adjunct Lecturer in the Hutton House Lectures.  He teaches film studies at 92nd Street Y and the JCC in Manhattan and is a published author.

July's Selection: Britt-Marie Was Here: A Novel by Fredrik Backman

The New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove and My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry“returns with this heartwarming story about a woman rediscovering herself after a personal crisis…fans of Backman will find another winner in these pages” (Publishers Weekly).

But hidden inside the socially awkward, fussy busybody is a woman who has more imagination, bigger dreams, and a warmer heart that anyone around her realizes.

When Britt-Marie walks out on her cheating husband and has to fend for herself in the miserable backwater town of Borg—of which the kindest thing one can say is that it has a road going through it—she finds work as the caretaker of a soon-to-be demolished recreation center. The fastidious Britt-Marie soon finds herself being drawn into the daily doings of her fellow citizens, an odd assortment of miscreants, drunkards, layabouts. Most alarming of all, she’s given the impossible task of leading the supremely untalented children’s soccer team to victory. In this small town of misfits, can Britt-Marie find a place where she truly belongs?

Funny and moving, sweet and inspiring, Britt-Marie Was Herecelebrates the importance of community and connection in a world that can feel isolating.
