Library Concert: The Promise is Hope
Join us for an intimate evening of music with one of New England's finest folk duos. Married couple & Worcester-based musicians, Ashley & Eric L'Esperance, are The Promise is Hope.
 
Ashley and Eric L’Esperance first felt the electricity of their undeniable chemistry at an impromptu song swap. A year and a half later they were married and released their debut album “Where We’ve Been & Where We’re Going.” Jessica Phaneuf, WUMB, says “I listen to A LOT of music, and this [album] would be at the top of the pile.” Their highly-anticipated sophomore release is expected to drop May 2018. The Promise is Hope has earned their place among New England’s finest emerging indie-folk duos, with a live performance that is often described as beautifully moving, inspired, and connected. In 2017, Worcester Telegram & Gazette named them “Best Entertainers in Central Massachusetts” and they were invited to perform at the Connecticut Folk Festival. They have captured the hearts of listeners in hundreds of crowds all over New England and the Mid-Atlantic, and have shared the stage with renowned folk artists such as Parsonsfield, Amy Speace, Antje Duvekot, and Gaelynn Lea. 

This library concert is free and open to all ages. Please register below.

"Set against the backdrop of Iran's rich, turbulent history, this exquisite debut novel is a powerful story of food, family, and a bittersweet homecoming. When we first meet Noor, she is living in San Francisco, missing her beloved father, Zod, in Iran. Now, dragging her stubborn teenage daughter, Lily, with her, she returns to Tehran and to Cafe Leila, the restaurant her family has been running for three generations. Iran may have changed, but Cafe Leila, still run by Zod, has stayed blessedly the same--it is a refuge of laughter and solace for its makeshift family of staff and regulars. "

New Members are always welcome!

Jumpin Juba Band

Mansfield Library warmly welcomes Jumpin' Juba Band to perform at the library for a FREE concert on Thursday June 7 at 6:30pm.

Jumpin' Juba mixes regional blues from Chicago, Memphis and New Orleans together with roots-y rock & roll, jazz, calypso, and Latin flavors.

The band's two CD releases ( Bumpity Bump and Slap Happy) have received regional and overseas airplay, and have garnered many favorable reviews in MA papers and on the web. Jumpin' Juba mixes blues and roots-y rock styles from Memphis, Chicago, and New Orleans. Great piano and guitar! Originals and covers. This event is free and open to all ages!

Zentangles Drawing Class

Join us for a free Zentangles Meditative Drawing Class presented by Cindy O'Brien. Zentangle® is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. Through its meditative qualities, it increases focus and creativity and provides an increased sense of peace and personal well being. In the first hour of our Sun Image Zentangle® class, participants learn seven "tangles" which are easy-to-learn step-by-step drawings consisting of either a line, dot or circle which are then combined to create abstract patterns. Drawing the tangles stroke-by-stroke creates a focus which in turn creates a relaxing and meditative state. In the second hour, participants apply the tangles to a unique line drawing of a sun image which they create together step-by-step and can then take home and color. The Sun Image class is taught by Certified Zentangle® Teacher Cindy O'Brien.

Cindy O'Brien, a North Attleboro resident, is the founder and president of the former Village Artisans Collaborative of downtown North Attleboro, MA, owner of the former Artiste Gallery of downtown Mansfield, MA and current owner of Artiste Art and Craft Studio which offers Zentangle® classes, Adult and Children Art and Craft Classes and sponsored Art Events. As a practicing artist for over thirty years, including gallery shows in Provincetown and Newbury Street, Boston, O'Brien's goal as a teacher is to get people excited about art and just have fun!

This class is free and open to teens and adults. Please register below.

This month we will be discussing The Girls by Emma Cline.  

"Northern California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged--a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence."

New Members are always welcome!
