Book Talk Leaders: Librarians Cheryl Kallberg and Anne May

You're invited to listen, enjoy, and participate if you wish - reading the book selection first is optional. Book selections are available at the Circulation Desk one month prior to each Book Talk. Cookies will be served.

The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it has been more useful in communicating mistrust and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, Victoria is unable to get close to anyone, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings. Now eighteen and emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But an unexpected encounter with a mysterious stranger has her questioning what’s been missing in her life. And when she’s forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether it’s worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness.

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564) was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of drawing and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. Because of this, his contemporaries called him 'il divino,' or, 'the divine one.'
The Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibition (November 13, 2017 - February 12, 2018) will present approximately 150 of Michelangelo's drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, and many complementary works by other artists for comparison and context. The complete series of masterpiece drawings created for Tommaso de' Cavalieri and a monumental cartoon for his last fresco in the Vatican Palace will be among the works coming to the Met's exhibition. Selected from 54 public and private collections in the United States and Europe, the exhibition will examine Michelangelo's rich legacy as a supreme draftsman and designer. Professor Thomas Germano will present a visual lecture on the life, times and work of Michelangelo Buonarroti and introduce the works related to this 'once in a lifetime exhibition' in NYC.

Profiles: Men and Women Who Shaped America and the World

Mark Twain and U.S. Grant may seem to be an unlikely duo, but they had a remarkable friendship and their lives and relationship illustrate key themes of a changing America.  No President has been re-evaluated higher than Grant by historians. Twain was ahead of the curve in appreciating the often misunderstood President and General as a gentle, humane man.  Twain has properly been called “The Lincoln of Our Literature.”  He was a master of irony with “The Gilded Age,” “Pudd’nhead Wilson,” and “The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg.”

   2:00 PM MUSEUM HIGHLIGHTS with Ines Powell: THE ART OF ISAMU NOGUCHI  
   

Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988) was a sculptor, designer, landscape architect, and craftsman.  Isamo Noguchi was the illegitimate son of Yone Noguchi, a Japanese poet and Leonie Gilmour, an American writer and editor.  Noguchi lived in Japan until the age of 13 when he moved to Indiana.  As a pre-med university student at Columbia University, he began taking sculpture classes on New York’s Lower East Side. Thanks to a Guggenheim Fellowship, Noguchi was able to go to Paris in 1927 and to find work in Brancusi’s studio.  Under Brancusi’s influence, Noguchi turned to modernism, abstracting and reducing his forms and infusing his highly finished pieces with an emotional expressiveness.  For the rest of his long career, Noguchi was based in New York, but travelled extensively in Asia, Mexico and Europe.  He created numerous celebrated public works worldwide, all reflecting Noguchi’s belief in the social significance of sculpture. In 1985, Noguchi opened The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum, in Long Island City, New York. The Museum, established and designed by the artist, marked the culmination of his commitment to public spaces

Aviva Grossman, an ambitious congressional intern, makes the mistake of having an affair with her boss, a Congressman. When the affair comes to light, nothing changes for the Congressman but the course of Aviva’s life is changed forever. Slut-shamed, she becomes a late-night talk show punch line, anathema to politics and winds up relocating in order to get past this affair.  But in the digital age, the past is never truly past, and it’s only a matter of time until Aviva’s past becomes joined with her present.

   7:30 PM MINDFULNESS MEDITATION with Carolyn Carpentiere  
   

KEEPING MANHASSET HEALTHY 2018 ~ Take an hour...Just for you.

Meditation helps us to slow down our busy minds and silently observe our thoughts. Our thoughts shape our days and our lives, so by sitting still and paying close attention we can become more aware of what comes up in the mind. As we become more aware, we can choose the direction of our thoughts. Studies have shown that awareness has a powerful effect on healing the mind and body. By focusing and leading the mind away from stressful thoughts toward peaceful thoughts we relieve stress and strengthen the immune system.

   2:00 PM CELEBRATE LITERARY LUMINARIES: JANE AUSTEN  
   

In an exciting new monthly program, Dr. Lynch will celebrate literary luminaries in recognition of their birthdays or anniversaries of extraordinary publications.  Selections for her evocative reading aloud will be drawn from various genres, countries, and time periods.  Each author can inspire, stimulate, and move us with his/her unique talents.

The 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s death (d. July 18, 1817) heralded a yearlong celebration and the issuing of a bank note in the U.K. with Austen’s airbrushed likeness.  She published anonymously, which was not uncommon for women writers at the time, and she achieved fame posthumously.  “Janeites” worldwide now discuss her novels, which deliciously chide British society and  survey women’s social status, financial dependence, and marriage pursuits.
(Excerpts from Pride and Prejudice and Emma)

   7:30 PM MINDFULNESS MEDITATION with Carolyn Carpentiere  
   

KEEPING MANHASSET HEALTHY 2018 ~ Take an hour...Just for you.

Meditation helps us to slow down our busy minds and silently observe our thoughts. Our thoughts shape our days and our lives, so by sitting still and paying close attention we can become more aware of what comes up in the mind. As we become more aware, we can choose the direction of our thoughts. Studies have shown that awareness has a powerful effect on healing the mind and body. By focusing and leading the mind away from stressful thoughts toward peaceful thoughts we relieve stress and strengthen the immune system.

In the Shaker Heights suburb, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.

Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants as the Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this ordered community.

Book Discussion Leaders: Librarians Cheryl Kallberg and Anne May

A comic ballet dating from 1789 has been reconstructed and preserved in several versions. In 1960 Sir Frederick Ashton created a new production for the Royal Ballet of England which remains a delightful rendition of the traditional comic story of a young boy getting the girl he loves despite the opposition of her mother who wishes the daughter to marry a dimwitted, but very rich young man. The work includes a clog dance, a Maypole dance, a violent storm, and an extraordinarily beautiful pas de deux.

Meditation helps us to slow down our busy minds and silently observe our thoughts. Our thoughts shape our days and our lives, so by sitting still and paying close attention we can become more aware of what comes up in the mind. As we become more aware, we can choose the direction of our thoughts. Studies have shown that awareness has a powerful effect on healing the mind and body. By focusing and leading the mind away from stressful thoughts toward peaceful thoughts we relieve stress and strengthen the immune system.

   2:00 PM MUSEUM HIGHLIGHTS with Ines Powell: ZUBARAN MASTERPIECES ON LOAN FROM AUCKLAND CASTLE  
   

Exhibition at the Frick Collection, New York, January 31, 2018 to April 22, 2018

The Frick Collection is organizing an exhibition of Francisco de Zurbarán’s series, Jacob and His Twelve Sons. The ambitious series of thirteen life-size paintings depicts the Old Testament figures. On loan from Auckland Castle, in England, the works by the Spanish Golden Age master Francisco de Zurbarán (1598–1664) have never traveled outside Europe.  Zurbarán made the series between 1640 and 1644, based on the Book of Genesis story in which Jacob on his deathbed, called together his 12 sons, who would become the founders of the 12 tribes of Israel.  The series was originally intended to travel, as Catholic propaganda, to the New World where it was commonly believed that indigenous people such as the Aztecs were a lost tribe of Israel. For unknown reasons, the series did not make it to the Americas.   One account states that English pirates stole the paintings.  By 1756, the series was in the possession of the prince-bishop of Durham, Richard Trevor, who resided in Auckland Castle. Bishop Trevor interpreted the subject of the series as a symbols of religious tolerance, a cause that he favored and promoted, at a time when in England, non-Anglican religious groups were treated with intolerance and contempt.

KEEPING MANHASSET HEALTHY 2018 ~ Take an hour...Just for you.

Meditation helps us to slow down our busy minds and silently observe our thoughts. Our thoughts shape our days and our lives, so by sitting still and paying close attention we can become more aware of what comes up in the mind. As we become more aware, we can choose the direction of our thoughts. Studies have shown that awareness has a powerful effect on healing the mind and body. By focusing and leading the mind away from stressful thoughts toward peaceful thoughts we relieve stress and strengthen the immune system.

   2:00 PM MUSEUM HIGHLIGHTS with Ines Powell: BARTOLOME ESTEBAN MKURILLO AND THE GOLDEN AGE OF SPAIN  
   

Bartolomé Estebán Murillo (1617-1682) was a leading Sevillian painter of the Golden Age of Spain.  Murillo remained one of the most admired and popular of all European artists in the 18th and early 19th century. The market for pictures by Murillo was so strong that the royal authorities at one point prohibited their export from Spain. Murillo himself never left Spain.  He began his training by working as an apprentice to local painters in Seville.  His early works were very much influenced by Velázquez, and Zurbarán.  Although Murillo painted some genre works, the bulk of his works were religious.  Murillo’s early style was highly realistic, but it became softer, more tender and lighter when he became familiar, during a trip to Madrid in 1658, with the works of Rubens and van Dyck. Murillo’s influence dominated the Sevillian School for over a century.

   1:00 PM LIVE THEATER: MIKE AND THE HUBBLE with David Houston  
   

This is a 1-hour "radio style" dramatic reading (with background music and effects) from the pages of SPACEMAN by Mike Massimino, , and from NASA sources. With actors Diana Heinlein and David Houston.

David Houston's dramatic play is based on the 2018 NORTH SHORE READS SELECTION ~ ONE ISLAND, ONE BOOK

Publisher’s Weekly: “What could have been a rote, stoic memoir recounting dates and stats proves to be anything but. This is an engaging and uplifting memoir that’s sure to give readers a deeper appreciation for the U.S. space program and inspire some future astronauts.”
 
Bill Nye, CEO of the Planetary Society: “Inspired by moonwalkers, Mike grew up, became an astronaut, and fixed the Hubble Space Telescope, all the while remaining some kinda humble. You can’t help but follow him from Long Island to the bottom of the spacewalk practice pool, then 350 miles up and back. He’s a spaceman through and through; he tells how hard work can take you out of this world.”
 
About the Author: A Long Islander, Mike Massimino was born August 19, 1962 in Oceanside and raised in Franklin Square. He grew up a working class kid whose seemingly unreachable dream of becoming an astronaut and going to space was realized in an unlikely journey that was driven by determination and commitment and realized with hard work and humor. After two missions to the Hubble Telescope and four space walks to make critical repairs to the telescope, Mike is now the Senior Space Advisor to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, a Columbia University professor, an author, a media personality, and an in-demand speaker. Mike has appeared on “The Big Bang Theory” six times, as well as frequent appearances on news programs, Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Star Talk” radio and television shows, “The Late Show with David Letterman,” Craig Ferguson’s new series “Join or Die” as well as his earlier ”The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.” Mike married his wife Carola on August 11, 1989, and they have two children: daughter Gabriella and son Daniel. Mike’s most recent honor was the renaming of the street where he grew up to “Mike Massimino Street.”

Édouard Manet (1832- 18830 was a French painter who rebelled against the accepted traditions of painting of his time.  Early in his career he began to experiment with new techniques of representation and he also departed from traditional subject matter by depicting events and circumstances from his own life. Manet was the eldest son of an official in the French Ministry of Justice, who expected his son to become a naval officer.  Contrary to his father’s wishes, Manet decided to study art and he went to Paris to train in the traditional studio of history painter Thomas Couture and to copy works at the Louvre Museum. For much of his career, Manet’s subjects and his detached approach to painting produced one critical scandal after another.  Only at the end of his career, did Manet begin to be recognized for the achievements and innovations

Music by Giacomo Puccini    Libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica

Giacomo Puccini composed nine operas and one operetta, eight of which remain in the repertories of most opera houses around the world. Set in the late 19th-Century Latin Quarter of Paris, La Bohème presents us with a group of poverty-stricken young artists as they fall in and out of love, quarrel and reconcile, live, love and die. Indeed the four lead characters—Rodolfo and Mimi, Marcello and Musetta—have some of the most memorable arias, duets, and ensemble moments in all of opera, including, in the first act alone, Rodolfo’s “Che gelida manina” (“Your tiny hand is cold”), Mimi’s “Sì, mi chiamano Mimi” (“Yes, I’m known as Mimi”), and their love duet “O soave fanciulla!” (“Oh sweet young woman!”). Later highlights include Musetta’s waltz, a quartet, and a famous aria to an old coat.

   2:00 PM CELEBRATE LITERARY LUMINARIES: JOHN CHEEVER (b. 1912)  
   

In an exciting new monthly program, Dr. Lynch will celebrate literary luminaries in recognition of their birthdays or anniversaries of extraordinary publications.  Selections for her evocative reading aloud will be drawn from various genres, countries, and time periods.  Each author can inspire, stimulate, and move us with his/her unique talents.

Cheever, plagued by dark moods and alcoholism, probably did not have many happy birthdays; however, he wrote superb short stories and a few novels and has been called “the Chekhov of the American suburbs.”
(Short Story: The Swimmer)

KEEPING MANHASSET HEALTHY 2018 ~ Take an hour...Just for you.

Meditation helps us to slow down our busy minds and silently observe our thoughts. Our thoughts shape our days and our lives, so by sitting still and paying close attention we can become more aware of what comes up in the mind. As we become more aware, we can choose the direction of our thoughts. Studies have shown that awareness has a powerful effect on healing the mind and body. By focusing and leading the mind away from stressful thoughts toward peaceful thoughts we relieve stress and strengthen the immune system.

He was the “wunderkind” of the concert stage, the ballet, and the musical theatre, and later a master of the opera, educational television, the conductor’s podium, and the lecture hall as well. In a little more than a year in the early 1940s he made his debut as conductor of the New York Philharmonic, conducted the premiere of his first symphony as well as his first ballet score for Fancy Free, and ended with the Broadway opening of his musical comedy, On The Town. He straddled the worlds of serious and popular music, and created several memorable musical theatre pieces including Wonderful Town, Candide, West Side Story, and Mass. Much of his work celebrated New York City from upper west side street gangs, to Greenwich Village arty types, to sailors on shore leave. His songs included “New York, New York,” “Lonely Town,” “Ohio,” “Tonight,” “Maria,” “I Feel Pretty,” and “Glitter and Be Gay.”

   7:00 PM BOOK TALK FOR NIGHT OWLS: KILLER ANGELS (The Civil War Trilogy #2), by Michael Shaara  
   

The four days of the Battle of Gettysburg were the bloodiest in our nation’s history.  One of the armies fought with the dream of freedom while the other army fought to retain a way of life.  More than rifles and bullets were carried on to the battlefield.  There were also memories, promises, loves, futures and innocence. This dramatic re-creation of the battle for America’s destiny won a Pulitzer Prize.

Are you finding it’s difficult to maintain your focus toward a writing goal?  Do you feel that outsiders could divert you from your vision?  Are you afraid joining a writers’ group might be intimidating?

Come join us.

Translated from the Italian by Jhumpa Lahari it is the story of the long but strained marriage of Vanda and Aldo.  Although the rupture in their union occurred many years in the past, when examined closely the marriage is a cracked vase that may shatter at the slightest touch.

   7:00 PM BOOK TALK FOR NIGHT OWLS: NOTHING TO ENVY (Ordinary Lives in North Korea), by Barbara Demick  
   

An award-winning journalist follows the lives of six North Korean citizens over the chaotic period that saw the death of Kim Il-sung, the rise to power of his son Kim Jung-Il, and a famine that killed one-fifth of the population.  Demick brings to life what it means to live under a repressive totalitarian regime today.  Deep in the country, beyond the reach of government censors, her subjects fall in love, raise families, nurture ambitions and struggle for survival.
