January Title: Passing by Nella Larsen

When childhood friends Clare Kendry and Irene Redfield come across each other at a white-only restaurant, Irene learns her estranged friend has severed all ties to their African American community and is now married to a bigoted white man unaware of her heritage. Swinging between allure and repulsion, their revived relationship becomes a stage upon which questions of identity, sexuality, belonging, and self-invention play out.

Abrim with stifled desires, Nella Larsen's searing portrait of these women's inner cadences straddles the edges of things--communities, identities, races, and speech--and ultimately lands somewhere absolute and subversive: a place that defies categorization.

Please contact Reference early enough to obtain your copy of the book. Books may take 10 to 14 days to reach us from outside the Library.

Last Days of Night by Graham Moore

A thrilling novel based on actual events, about the nature of genius, the cost of ambition, and the battle to electrify America.

New York, 1888. The miracle of electric light is in its infancy. Thomas Edison has won the race to the patent office and is suing his only remaining rival, George Westinghouse, for the unheard of sum of one billion dollars. To defend himself, Westinghouse makes a surprising choice in his attorney: He hires an untested twenty-six-year-old fresh out of Columbia Law School named Paul Cravath.

The task facing Cravath is beyond daunting. Edison proves to be a formidable, wily, and dangerous opponent. Yet this young, unknown attorney shares with his famous opponent a compulsion to win at all costs. How will he do it? As he takes greater and greater risks, he’ll find that everyone in his path is playing their own game, and no one is quite who they seem.

Copies of the book will be available to registered patrons for pick-up at the branch of their choice. Please register by the first of the month by phone at 516-466-8055, ext. 232 to guarantee receiving the book in time.

Tai Chi facilitated by Joseph Panico

Tai Chi is an internal form of martial art that is practiced for health and self-defense. Incorporating breathing with slow and fluid movements, the exercise connects the internal focus of the mind with the external control of the body.  Practicing Tai Chi ultimately leads to Improved Circulation, Better Balance, Greater Flexibility, Increased Energy and Reduced Tension.

Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes.

The Sunshine Boys
performed by The Lantern Theatre

All are invited to enjoy the Lantern Theatre Production of Neil Simon's The Sunshine Boys.

The Sunshine Boys by Neil Simon is a touching, funny and insightful comedy about relationships and aging.

          

Neil Simon,  prolific, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and screenwriter,  created indestructible comedies -- including "The Odd Couple," "Barefoot in the Park," "The Sunshine Boys" and "Brighton Beach Memoirs" -- that made him one of the most successful writers in American history.

Lantern is Long Island's longest-running community theater and is fortunate to have a dedicated group of members who happily alternate in performing the many jobs--from actor to usher--that must be done in order for a theater company to thrive.  Its productions include classic dramas and comedies, and new plays straight from Broadway and Off-Broadway.

Registration suggested beginning Wednesday, January 2 at 10:00 a.m. by calling 466-8055, ext. 208/254 or register online.

See our January Neil Simon movie tribute.
