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

We have something BIG planned for our Summer Reading Program Kick-Off this year! Join us for an invigorating and exciting evening of song and dance with nationally acclaimed children’s musician of PBS fame, Steve Roslonek of Steve Songs®. Steve has been writing and performing his award-winning music for kids and families for the past fifteen years. He blends participatory songs, clever stories and great melodies to create what the Boston Globe called "not just a musical journey, but an entertaining, interactive and educational one." Steve has delighted audiences throughout the country, including prestigious venues like Symphony Space in New York City, Wolftrap in Vienna VA, the Kennedy Center, the White House in Washington, D.C., and Fenway Park in Boston. Anyone who’s attended a Steve Songs® concert appreciates Steve’s ability to connect with his audience – from the exuberant children flocking towards the stage, to the moms bouncing babies with the beat, to the parents and grandparents singing along. You won’t want to miss this one!    http://www.stevesongs.com/

This free program is made possible through the generosity of the Friends of the Library and with the support of the Voorheesville PTA.  Assemblymember Pat Fahy will be our special guest at the Kick-Off.  The concert will be held at the Lydia C. Tobler Performing Arts Center at the Clayton A. Bouton High School/Middle School.

Explores "the emerging political re-alignment that is combining the left and the right against converging corporate-government tyranny. Large segments from the progressive, conservative, and libertarian political camps find themselves aligned in opposition to [what Nader see as] the destruction of civil liberties, the bloated and economically draining corporate welfare state, the relentless perpetuation of America's wars, sovereignty-shredding free trade agreements, and the unpunished crimes of Wall Street against Main Street"-- Provided by publisher.

Bring in samples of vegetables or flowers you're growing, whether from the Seed Library's collection or others. Identify seeds in our library's collection for succession planting for the rest of the summer and into the fall. Local gardeners and Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners will facilitate the discussion and help answer questions. Beginner to advanced gardeners are welcome.   Please Register.

Foiled by Jane Yolen

Aliera Carstairs fumbles her way through the humdrum days in high school, where she doesn’t fit in. She feels most alive when she is fencing with the foil her Mom picked up at a tag sale.  The odd gem on the hilt of her foil is a hint at the wild adventure in store for Aliera when she meets a strange new boy at school. After a brief discussion of this graphic novel, we’ll try some role-playing games and learn some fencing positions. (Grades 6 and up, please register and pick up a copy of the book at the Information Desk.)

   6:00 PM  -  9:00 PM The Things Our Fathers Saw - An Evening with Teacher & Author, Matthew Rozell  
    Contact: Gail Brown   765-2791   gail.brown@voorpl.org
   

Matthew Rozell is an award-winning history teacher, author, speaker and blogger on the topic of the most cataclysmic events in the history of mankind - World War II and the Holocaust. Rozell has been featured as the “ABC World News Person of the Week” and has had his work as a teacher filmed for the CBS Evening News, NBC Learn, the Israeli Broadcast Authority, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the New York State United Teachers.

At the height of World War II, LOOK Magazine profiled a small upstate New York community for a series of articles portraying it as the wholesome, patriotic model of life on the home front. Seventy years later, Rozell and his students track down over two dozen veterans residing around "Hometown, USA" who fought the war in the Pacific, from Pearl Harbor to the surrender at Tokyo Bay. They rescue and resurrect firsthand accounts of combat and brotherhood, of captivity and redemption, and the aftermath of a war that left no American community unscathed. The Things Our Fathers Saw contain the stories that the magazine could not tell, from a vanishing generation speaking to America today.

As the founder of the World War II Living History Project, Mr. Rozell and his students recorded the testimony of hundreds from the WWII generation, one person at a time. One of his interviews, and his dogged pursuit thereafter, led to the reuniting of a train transport of Holocaust survivors with their actual American liberators over 60 years later and the discovery of one of the most iconic photographs of the Holocaust.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Everett Rau is proof that it’s never too late to become a first time author! Stand Tall: Against the Odds is an inspirational memoir about Rau’s life and farming in twentieth century America.

At age 97, Everett Rau still farms the land where he was born in 1919. Hoping that his tales of survival can inspire others, he reminisces about early life in Altamont, farming during the Depression, working for General Electric in World War II, and the rise and catastrophic failure of his own small business.
