   7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Hiking the Bay Circuit Trail: A Video Journey  
    Contact: Reference   978-623-8430   rdesk@mhl.org
   

Dan and Marilyn Brielmann of e-Awakening, a website for 'The Preservation of Nature & the Protection of Resources' will share information about this wonderful 230 mile resource with 16 miles of trails in Andover.

The idea for the Bay Circuit Trail & Greenway first arose in 1929. It would be an “outer Emerald Necklace,” proponents said—a greenbelt that would mirror the famous string of Frederick Law Olmsted-designed parks threading through urban Boston—and would provide open space for the metropolitan area’s quickly expanding population. Over the next several decades, various public and private parks and reservations were established in the area between what is now Route 128 and Interstate 495, but they failed to keep pace with commercial and residential development. In the 1980s, interest in the project was renewed, and in 1990 the Bay Circuit Alliance formed to make the trail and greenway a reality. The BCA has focused on linking segments of the Bay Circuit Trail, which provides a place for recreation while ensuring the protection of open space in the region by adding more “pearls” to the “emerald necklace.” Beginning at Plum Island and ending in Kingston Bay, the trail and greenway is located close to 4 million people in Eastern Massachusetts. The trail provides close-to-home recreation including: walking, biking, snowshoeing, horseback riding and cross-country skiing. Many sections of the trail are accessible by the MBTA commuter rail and other public transit systems.

In the fall of 2012, the Appalachian Mountain Club and The Trustees of Reservations, two of Massachusetts’ largest and oldest conservation organizations, began working together with the Bay Circuit Alliance in the completion, enhancement, and long-term protection of the recreational trail and greenway. The two organizations are working with the Alliance to fulfill the vision of the Bay Circuit by closing  the final gaps of the trail, recruiting and organizing volunteers, improving the trail experience through improved maintenance and signage, securing permanent protection for the trail corridor and the greenway, and encouraging the public to get out and explore the trail’s 230 miles.

This month's Night Readers selection will be The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly.  "Calpurnia Virginia Tate is eleven years old in 1899 when she wonders why the yellow grasshoppers in her Texas backyard are so much bigger than the green ones. With a little help from her notoriously cantankerous grandfather, an avid naturalist, she figures out that the green grasshoppers are easier to see against the yellow grass, so they are eaten before they can get any larger.  As Callie explores the natural world around her, she develops a close relationship with her grandfather, navigates the dangers of living with six brothers, and comes up against just what it means to be a girl at the turn of the century."

In the program, he will share hysterical enactments of his children's poetry, some very silly songs accompanied by his guitar playing (or his basketball sneakers) and he will get audience volunteers run around the room and help him with his juggling.  There's also a fun word game for all to learn and a contest between the kids and the adults, a surprising punch line to a sing along, and even the crack of a bat to open baseball season.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Andover Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

    Contact: Reference   978-623-8430   rdesk@mhl.org
   

A screening of "A Quiet Revolution," a feature-length documentary by Tom and Charles Dey, about a group of people who came together fifty years ago to create change and help a deeply divided nation heal itself. At the height of the Civil Rights movement, struggling for answers to burgeoning problems of racial inequality, Dartmouth College and a group of preparatory schools established a groundbreaking program to identify young students of color from low-income backgrounds for admission to the nation's leading boarding schools, with full scholarships. They believed, contrary to popular opinion, that if given the necessary tools, these students could succeed in the private schools and eventually compete in all sectors of our society, and that the only thing standing in their way was a lack of access and opportunity. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers. Charles F. Dey served as the Director of A Better Chance from 1964-65, and Board Chairman from 1970-74. In April 2013, he wrote about the documentary:

"Our nation is increasingly segregated by economic ghettoes, golden to gutted, that too often inexorably determine life chances, but ABC has given us clear evidence that talent is limited neither by zip code nor neighborhood. By permitting poverty to stunt the futures of so many children, our nation is both wasting enormous talent and limiting a fundamental civil right – educational opportunity.

ABC was a bold, experimental program that took the long view and changed many lives dramatically, but this documentary is not a promotional film for A Better Chance.  We have not accepted any funds from the program because we want to be able to tell the whole story as truthfully and objectively as possible. There is a moral responsibility that goes with changing the trajectory of another human being’s life. ABC stories of both struggle and success comprise a history that is uniquely American and largely unknown.

By documenting their 50-year journeys we will put face and voice to these pioneering integrationists and their families who initially challenged the status quo. By crossing borders, they and their teachers and communities played a critical role in the civil rights era, leading, in the words of Bill Berkeley, the first ABC President, “a quiet revolution.”      

By sharing their experiences more dramatically on film, we want to contribute significantly to the ongoing debates regarding how best to identify, nurture and educate talented youngsters from all quarters of our society."

   2:00 PM  -  3:30 PM Shakespeare's Words?  
    Contact: Reference   978-623-8430   rdesk@mhl.org
   

Why is there no writing in Shakespeare's hand?  How is it that we have so many plays said to be written by a man named Shakespeare?  Did Shakespeare even write his plays? We'll celebrate Shakespeare's birthday and find out about this and more as educator and Shakespeare scholar, Julia Perlowski, delivers a lecture about Shakespeare's first compilation of plays known as the First Folio. Through the printing history of this collection, age old questions about Shakespeare are considered. Her lecture will be light and fun and will be sure to whet your appetite for more involvement with the Bard.

Julia Perlowski started her teaching career as a drama, reading and English instructor in South Florida where she taught for 10 years directing young people in "Romeo and Juliet", "Much Ado About Nothing",  "As You Like It" and "Macbeth".  Julia is currently a drama teacher at Parthum Middle School in Lawrence, where she is contributing to the turn-around effort under District Receiver Jeffrey Riley.  In addition to contributions to public school, Julia is an English Speaking Union-Boston Branch board member, for which she coordinates the Annual Shakespeare competition.  She is also a member of the National Teacher Corps for the Folger Shakespeare Library Education Department, through which she is asked to conduct workshops for teachers at the national level. Julia has been trained at The Folger Shakespeare Library, England’s GLOBE, the American Shakespeare Center and Lenox Shakespeare and Co. Julia currently presents lectures and teacher-training workshops at the National Council Teachers of English, as well at state arts conferences, including Tennessee, Florida, Montana, Texas and California. In 2010, Julia was awarded the Teaching Excellence Award by the U.S. State Department.  She was stationed in Gujarat, India where she trained 40 teachers to dynamically engage their students in complex early modern English text. Julia’s work extends into Krakow, Stockholm and St. Lucia, where she is in planning to produce "A Midsummer Night's Dream", to be toured on the island as a fundraiser for Edward for Education.  Julia is the recipient of the Reba R. Robinson Award from the Children’s Theatre Foundation in partnership with the American Alliance of Theatre and Education. Given biennially, this prize recognizes a secondary school teacher for outstanding achievement in, and commitment to, teen theatre. See Julia’s "MacBeth" performed at North Andover High School this June!

Become inspired to create beautiful pastel paintings by exploring America’s foremost modernist pastel painter of flowers.

How layering is accomplished without fixatives for achieving O’Keeffe’s “clean” look will be a focus, as well as building an abstract foundation through Leonardo da Vinci’s revolutionary drawing technique.
