Coffee & Tea by the Book


In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules. Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardson’s. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community. Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster. ~~Registration begins in person at the reference desk on Tuesday, October 3rd  @ 9:30 AM and is limited to Garden City Public Library cardholders. You may pick up a copy of the book at registration.

Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer

Michelangelo Buonarroti was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of design and invention that provided the foundation for all the arts. Because of this, his contemporaries called him “il divino”, or the divine one. The Metropolitan Museum’s new exhibit presents 150 of Michelangelo’s drawings, three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, his wood architectural model for a chapel vault, and many complementary works by other artists for comparison and context. This exhibition examines Michelangelo’s rich legacy as a supreme draftsman and designer. Professor Thomas Germano will give a visual lecture on the life, times and work of Michelangelo Buonarroti and introduce the works related to this “once in a lifetime exhibition” in New York. All are welcome. No registration is necessary.
