   6:30 PM The Film Club presents A River Runs Through It  
   

After a full career as a professor of English literature, Norman MacLean started writing fiction in his seventies, publishing his semi-autobiographical A River Runs Through It in 1976.  Recounting his coming of age in a Montana family where “there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing,” MacLean offered an elegiac portrait of his staid minister father and his wild-hearted brother Paul, whose very different life paths was transcended by their bond shared on the banks of the Blackfoot River.

In 1991, just after MacLean’s death at age eighty-seven, Robert Redford adapted the novella into a film, casting the not-yet-famous Brad Pitt as the MacLean’s brother Paul, a no-holds-barred reporter in the Prohibition-era West. What Redford creates is possibly his best film, balancing Maclean’s solid prose with the evocative imagery of Philippe Rousselot, who won the 1993 Academy Award for Best Cinematography.

Thursday February 1, 2018 -  Wednesday February 28, 2018
     ARTIST OF THE MONTH: Anita Rabinoff-Goldman  
   

The graphic quality of 18th and 19th century American quilts created a new audience for the highly creative and beautifully crafted handwork of unknown women artists of those periods. A pivotal exhibit of American quilts at the Whitney Museum of Art in 1971 turned many visual artists to the medium. I was one of them. 

Since then, the art quilt has gained deserved respect as a visual medium with its own unique appeal. Not content to recreate traditional patterns, I wanted to use the quilt to express aesthetic concerns such as image, line, and color. 

Quilts are my canvas, fabrics my paint. While visual imagery may be transferable between media, the added tactile dimension of the quilt along with the emotional dimension that fabric adds to our lives, make quilt making a more potent creative force for me. I take my emotional response to the exterior landscape--seasons, colors, energy--as well as my interior landscape--rooms, relationships, the imagination--and create imagery through the use of pattern, color and texture.

A native of New York City, I received a degree in Art and Art History from the University of Albany. After living and working in Albany for many years, I recently relocated to the Boston area. My work has appeared in numerous local and national shows and is represented in private collections.

ARTIST'S RECEPTION: Sunday, February 11, 2:30 p.m.

For families and their Children, ages 3 - 5

What is Mindfulness?  “Being in the present moment, with awareness, on purpose and non-judgemental.”  Jon Kabat Zin

It really means to have kids notice their thoughts, feelings and senses in the moment to help them to relax, focus and have fun.

In this class, the emphasis is on engaging the children’s senses through activities.  Sheryl comes prepared with a bag of sensory props and uses different objects to engage and help the children practice how to be more in the present moment. These activities can be relaxing and many children will share how good they felt during and after the session.

Why emphasize the senses?  It is the awareness that is created during the activity that is beneficial not the activity itself.  When the senses are used the mind can’t drift off and they can’t get lost in thought and the result is MINDFULNESS!

Registration is limited to ten families.  Sign up starts Monday, January 22nd at the Youth Services Desk.

Challenging kids are hard to parent! A child or teen's defiance can quickly trigger us into yelling and imposing consequences, which often prove ineffective and make us feel disconnected from our child and bad about ourselves. Imagine having a simple framework that guides you in every parenting challenge and that brings out the best in both you and your child. This presentation provides an alternative way to understand challenging kids and an overview of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach, which helps parents reduce challenging behavior while fostering a positive relationship their child and building their child/teen's skills in self-regulation, communication and problem-solving.

Karen Kraut, MPH, is a parenting coach and Certified Trainer in the Collaborative Problem Solving approach based in Massachusetts General Hospital’s Think:Kids program. She founded Be The Parent You Want to Be! to teach parents CPS and co-founded Making Parenting WORK, which brings maternity and parenting wellness to the workplace. Karen presents on CPS throughout greater Boston and, through coaching and workshops, has taught CPS to over 600 adults in the last 4 years.
