BOOK ENDS CAFE: THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS, by Vanessa-Diffenbaugh
2:00 PM

Book Talk Leaders: Librarians Cheryl Kallberg and Anne May

You're invited to listen, enjoy, and participate if you wish - reading the book selection first is optional. Book selections are available at the Circulation Desk one month prior to each Book Talk. Cookies will be served.

The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it has been more useful in communicating mistrust and solitude. After a childhood spent in the foster-care system, Victoria is unable to get close to anyone, and her only connection to the world is through flowers and their meanings. Now eighteen and emancipated from the system with nowhere to go, Victoria realizes she has a gift for helping others through the flowers she chooses for them. But an unexpected encounter with a mysterious stranger has her questioning what’s been missing in her life. And when she’s forced to confront a painful secret from her past, she must decide whether it’s worth risking everything for a second chance at happiness.

Writers require both the seclusion to write and readers.  Other writers are the best readers.  We strive to be honest but kind when communicating our critique.  We also share knowledge on the topics of writing conferences and workshops, publishing, agent sources, and marketing.  We also host guest speakers. Come join us.

T.S. ELIOT AND EDNA ST. VINCENT MILLAY: 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of Eliot’s poem “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” and Millay’s poem “Renascence.”  We have here two American poets, male and female, quite literally as different as night and day, but each “rebels” in their own ways.

VISUAL ART LECTURE: MICHELANGELO ~ DIVINE DRAFTSMAN & DESIGNER with Professor Thomas Germano
2:00 PM

Michelangelo Buonarroti (1475–1564) was celebrated for the excellence of his disegno, the power of drawing 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 of Art's exhibition (November 13, 2017 - February 12, 2018) will present approximately 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. The complete series of masterpiece drawings created for Tommaso de' Cavalieri and a monumental cartoon for his last fresco in the Vatican Palace will be among the works coming to the Met's exhibition. Selected from 54 public and private collections in the United States and Europe, the exhibition will examine Michelangelo's rich legacy as a supreme draftsman and designer. Professor Thomas Germano will present 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 NYC.
