    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

For decades, Hollywood has turned to literature for inspiration and dedicated itself to recreating the same beloved characters again and again. But in an old town where everything is new again, these screen depictions have built lives of their own by adopting new personas, crossing genres, and even inspiring their own novels and movies. With an in-depth look of five classic characters (Elizabeth Bennet, Sherlock Holmes, Jay Gatsby, Dorothy Gale, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), we explore how cinema has reinvented these icons over the last century and influenced our perspective on the original characters and stories.

It also reveals the continuing struggle in the United States between the fear of government intervention and the right to quality health care for all people. A discussion led by Norm Wien, former Vice President of Chidlren's Hospital of Pittburgh immediately follow the showing of the film.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

For decades, Hollywood has turned to literature for inspiration and dedicated itself to recreating the same beloved characters again and again. But in an old town where everything is new again, these screen depictions have built lives of their own by adopting new personas, crossing genres, and even inspiring their own novels and movies. With an in-depth look of five classic characters (Elizabeth Bennet, Sherlock Holmes, Jay Gatsby, Dorothy Gale, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), we explore how cinema has reinvented these icons over the last century and influenced our perspective on the original characters and stories.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

For decades, Hollywood has turned to literature for inspiration and dedicated itself to recreating the same beloved characters again and again. But in an old town where everything is new again, these screen depictions have built lives of their own by adopting new personas, crossing genres, and even inspiring their own novels and movies. With an in-depth look of five classic characters (Elizabeth Bennet, Sherlock Holmes, Jay Gatsby, Dorothy Gale, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), we explore how cinema has reinvented these icons over the last century and influenced our perspective on the original characters and stories.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

For decades, Hollywood has turned to literature for inspiration and dedicated itself to recreating the same beloved characters again and again. But in an old town where everything is new again, these screen depictions have built lives of their own by adopting new personas, crossing genres, and even inspiring their own novels and movies. With an in-depth look of five classic characters (Elizabeth Bennet, Sherlock Holmes, Jay Gatsby, Dorothy Gale, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde), we explore how cinema has reinvented these icons over the last century and influenced our perspective on the original characters and stories.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Red Beans & Rice Combo

Why are they called The Red Beans and Rice Combo, you might ask…because you can get fries or a biscuit with the combo but you’ll always choose the biscuit because that’s the way they roll— as they play a very cool mix of classic New Orleans R&B, 50’s rock ala Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry, Mose Allison, Tom Waits, Slim Galliard and Louis Jordan—SUPER FUN TUNES!

The Combo features the world celebrated early jazz stride pianist, Tom Roberts (a Foxburg regular) on piano, whistling, & vocals, along with Dave Klug on drums and his custom-built “Kluger Soundboard,” and Wayno on vocals, harmonica, & ukulele.  Mt. Lebanonites Dave and Wayno are also well-known artists.

The fun-loving , sharp-dressed band has been gigging around Pittsburgh for a little over a year, and quickly developed a reputation for delivering a danceable mix of New Orleans R&B, early rock & roll nuggets, and barroom ballads, with a jazzy dash of Tin Pan Alley, and a generous side of wit & humor.

Concerts will be held in the library's outdoor courtyard. In the event of rain, they will move inside.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

    Contact: Laurena Schultz, Public Services Librarian   412-531-1912   mtleblibrarian@einetwork.net
   

Mt. Lebanon native Bill Steigerwald’s thirty-six-year career as a journalist included stints with the Los Angeles Times, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.  His work has appeared in dozens of major American papers and in magazines as disparate as Reason, Family Circle, Men’s Journal, and Penthouse.  Join us this evening as he discusses his latest book, 30 days a Black Man: The Forgotten Story That Exposed the Jim Crow South. 

In 1948 most white people in the North had no idea how unjust and unequal daily life was for the 10 million African Americans living in the South. But that suddenly changed after Ray Sprigle, a famous white journalist from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, went undercover and lived as a black man in the Jim Crow South.  Escorted through the South’s parallel black society by John Wesley Dobbs, a historic black civil rights pioneer from Atlanta, Sprigle met with sharecroppers, local black leaders, and families of lynching victims. He visited ramshackle black schools and slept at the homes of prosperous black farmers and doctors. 

Six years before Brown v. Board of Education, seven years before the murder of Emmett Till, and thirteen years before John Howard Griffin’s similar experiment became the bestseller Black Like Me, Sprigle’s intrepid journalism blasted into the American consciousness the grim reality of black lives in the South.  Author Bill Steigerwald elevates Sprigle’s groundbreaking exposé to its rightful place among the seminal events of the early Civil Rights movement.   Light refreshments.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

   7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM Global Beat: China and Alibaba  
    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

A Glimpse of Alibaba


If you ask a China watcher to name a Chinese company that mirrors its country’s meteoric economic growth, Alibaba would undoubtedly be on the very short list of the top contenders.  In America Alibaba is known as China’s Amazon.  In China it is a synonym for e-commerce platform, allowing millions of e-shops to operate in the largest internet marketplace on earth.  Understanding Alibaba’s unlikely birth and bumpy journey to greatness will help us gain insight into a country in rapid transition.

Join us on Thursday, October 19th at 7:00 p.m. in Room A for “A Glimpse of Alibaba.”  We will start the evening with a viewing of the documentary Crocodile in the Yangtze.  This film was directed by Canadian Porter Erisman, a former VP of marketing for Alibaba. It is an intimate and candid story of Alibaba and its charismatic leader Jack Ma.  Immediately, following the viewing of this film we will have an interview and Q & A session with SHEN, Yonggang (???) and YU, Yifei (???), a husband-and-wife duo who own a successful business on Alibaba’s platform. We hope that the program will provide a unique opportunity for a close look at Alibaba and, through it, China.

 

This discussion is part of the Library's year-long Global Beat program in which the

library has planned a series of talks and musical programs that explore different regions

of our world.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Beginners’ Irish

 

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

 

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

 

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.
