Infinity + Old Memories: art by Nobuko Saji
Nobuko Saji will be displaying her ethereal art into two collections: “Infinity” is compiled of contemporary mixed media paintings, materials such as plasters, gels, acrylics and oil paints are combined. Her art is connected with the universe, and inspired by her meditations on the cycles of life and how every creature emits a powerful light, full of love and hope. “Old Memories” will showcase her traditional oil paintings inspired by the scenery of her travels.
 
Nobuko Saji graduated from Jyoshibi Art College in Tokyo as a Graphic Design major, and started her career in Advertising at ANA (All Nippon Airways) in Tokyo. After she moved to San Francisco as a freelance writer for Japanese magazines, she became a senior textile designer of home furnishings in N.Y.C. for more than 25 years. She also learned sculpture and printmaking in evening classes at F.I.T and the School of Visual Art. Now in retirement, Nobuko creates contemporary fine art and sculptures.
 
Join us for an art reception on Saturday, October 1 from 2 - 4 pm!

Parkville Pageturners

Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid

Join Librarian Kat in person at the Parkville branch for a discussion of Such A Fun Age by Kiley Reid.

 

"A striking and surprising debut novel from an exhilarating new voice, Such a Fun Age is a page-turning and big-hearted story about race and privilege, set around a young black babysitter, her well-intentioned employer, and a surprising connection that threatens to undo them both.

Alix Chamberlain is a woman who gets what she wants and has made a living, with her confidence-driven brand, showing other women how to do the same. So she is shocked when her babysitter, Emira Tucker, is confronted while watching the Chamberlains' toddler one night, walking the aisles of their local high-end supermarket. The store's security guard, seeing a young black woman out late with a white child, accuses Emira of kidnapping two-year-old Briar. A small crowd gathers, a bystander films everything, and Emira is furious and humiliated. Alix resolves to make things right.

But Emira herself is aimless, broke, and wary of Alix's desire to help. At twenty-five, she is about to lose her health insurance and has no idea what to do with her life. When the video of Emira unearths someone from Alix's past, both women find themselves on a crash course that will upend everything they think they know about themselves, and each other.

With empathy and piercing social commentary, 
Such a Fun Age explores the stickiness of transactional relationships, what it means to make someone "family," and the complicated reality of being a grown up. It is a searing debut for our times."

2:00 PM - 2:30 PM
Tween Book Club

Join Miss Kat in person at the Parkville branch for a discussion of The First Rule of Punk by Celia Perez. Copies of the book will be provided while supplies last. 

This program is for children in grades 6 to 8

Registration for this program will begin on Monday, August 29 at 10a.

 

"The First Rule of Punk" is a wry and heartfelt exploration of friendship, finding your place, and learning to rock out like no one’s watching. 


There are no shortcuts to surviving your first day at a new school—you can’t fix it with duct tape like you would your Chuck Taylors. On Day One, twelve-year-old Malú (María Luisa, if you want to annoy her) inadvertently upsets Posada Middle School’s queen bee, violates the school’s dress code with her punk rock look, and disappoints her college-professor mom in the process. Her dad, who now lives a thousand miles away, says things will get better as long as she remembers the first rule of punk: be yourself.
 
The real Malú loves rock music, skateboarding, zines, and Soyrizo (hold the cilantro, please). And when she assembles a group of like-minded misfits at school and starts a band, Malú finally begins to feel at home. She'll do anything to preserve this, which includes standing up to an anti-punk school administration to fight for her right to express herself!"
