   7:00 PM Larry Grob talk: A Landscape Artist Explores the Nature of Weston  
   
Join Weston Cultural Council grant recipient, Larry Grob, for the unveiling of a new series of Weston landscape paintings and a talk about the nature of our town and its landforms. As Larry describes it, "As an artist/geographer I paint as a way of engaging with our land, and doing so forces me to inquire about how things came to be and how they may become in the future. This project began simply, with easel and pastels, and expanded as I pondered the our geological story, issues of land use, stewardship, and even concepts of 'deep time'. I hope to inspire a slightly richer connection with the land that is Weston...I think that's a good job for an artist."

Pianist Eleanor Perrone’s programs focus on drawing the audience into the music, introducing them to unfamiliar works and re-introducing them to familiar ones, demonstrating that across centuries and musical styles there is a common core of musical experience and expression. In her Community Room concert this year, Eleanor’s program will include Bach/Busoni’s Chaconne in d minor, Villa-Lobos’ From “Ciclo Brasileiro” and Brahms’ Variations on a theme by Handel, Op. 24. She has toured Brazil and Europe and has received worldwide accolades.  She has been called a “virtuosic storyteller” in the Kieler Nachtrichten, and the Boston Globe has said, “Perrone is a pianist who makes you listen.” Eleanor is on the piano faculty of Concord Academy and also teaches privately in Watertown. Trained at the Julliard School and Boston University, she holds a Master of Music degree from Boston University. Her website is http://www.eleanorperrone.com

   10:00 AM  -  11:00 AM Two Year Old Storytime!  
    Contact: Youth Services Desk   781-786-6166   
   

We offer Two sessions of our program for Two-Year Olds:
Session One 10:00 - 10:30
Session Two 10:30 - 11:00

Drop in and listen to several simple, age-appropriate stories based on a fun fall/winter theme, then make a craft with your child!

Story appreciation and craft manipulation are based on the fine motor skills and listening abilities of two-year-olds. For that reason, and so that the group experience will be positive for all, we ask that children be two years old when they attend.

Adults must stay with children.

Author Gregory Flemming recounts an astonishing true story of a young sailor's ordeal during the golden age of piracy. "Flemming relates the story of the capture by pirates of Philip Ashton in 1722, and in the process he reveals a fascinating history of pirates during the first decades of the 18th century...From battles with warships to the way the pirates split their plunder, Flemmings' focus on individual actors adds a welcome depth to the history of piracy with this engaging and harrowing account of 'America's real-life Robinson Crusoe." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
