Welcoming Week International Potluck

WILL BE HELD IN THE COURTYARD GARDEN

Let's celebrate Welcoming Week together with an International Potluck. Welcoming Week strives to bring together immigrants and U.S. born citizens in their communities. We believe that food is the best way to get the conversation started. This potluck is open to all residents. This as a great opportunity to enjoy the diversity of our growing community. All participants are asked to bring one interesting dish (with perhaps a story) to share. Main courses, salads and desserts are most welcomed. We will supply the drinks and entertainment.

This year, we will be enjoying West African music with Camara Drum and Dance.  Yamoussa Camara currently teaches West African dance at Carnegie Mellon University and Point Park University, and the African Drum Ensemble at the University of Pittsburgh. For the general public, he teaches West African Drum and Dance classes at Bodiography Center for Movement and West African Dance at Waverly Presbyterian Church. 

We will enjoy our shared meal in the library's courtyard. Families of all ages are welcome. Registration helpful for seating and other preparations, but not required. Please register here or call the library at 412-531-1912.

Monette Shuttleworth from the Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh leads this montly program. She will provide background, support tips and answer any questions!

Yin Yoga is slow-paced and meditative in nature and serves to complement to more active yoga (Yang) styles. Yin Yoga emphasizes passive postures held for several minutes at a time, with muscles in a relaxed state. The connective tissue in and around the muscles and joints is targeted.  Ultimately, Yin Yoga promotes the vitality, hydration, mobility and strength of the connective tissue. It also enhances a balanced flow of energetic circulation leading to a state of calmness, contentment and an overall lasting feeling of relaxation. Please bring a yoga mat, a pillow, and beach towel to support your practice. Registration helpful, but not necessary.

An Evening with Amy Stewart

Amy Stewart's Kopp Sisters novels, starting with Girl Waits with Gunare based on the true story of three extraordinary women: Constance, Norma, and Fleurette Kopp. In 2012, Stewart stumbled across a 1914 newspaper article about them and went on to uncover their amazing history through genealogical archives, court records, old newspapers, and interviews with family members. From their story, she is writing a series about the Kopp sisters and their adventures in crime-fighting. Stewart will share photographs and stories about these extraordinary women and the fascinating historical background that shaped their world a hundred years ago.

Fresh Air's book critic Maureen Corrigan said that the novels "take readers on a lively chase through a lost world. It’s a colorful and inventive adventure tale that also contains a serious message at its core about the importance of meaningful work to women’s identities and, in some cases, survival."

City Books will have Amy's books for sale at the event. Her new book, Kopp Sisters on the March, will be released on September 17 and available for purchase at the event. Cash or check only. If you would like to pre-order a copy of Kopp Sisters on the March to pickup at the event, please call City Books at 412-321-7323. You can pay with a credit card by phone. Thank you!

The Volunteer: The True Story of the Resistance Hero who Infiltrated Auschwitz.

Jack Fairweather is a former war reporter in Iraq and Afghanistan and the author of A War of Choice and The Good War. He has served as the Daily Telegraph’s Baghdad bureau chief, and as a video journalist for the Washington Post in Afghanistan. His war coverage has won a British Press Award and an Overseas Press Club award citation.
 
Jack will speak about his new book, The Volunteer: The True Story of the Resistance Hero who Infiltrated Auschwitz. Taking place in Nazi-occupied Poland, it follows the story of Polish underground operative Witold Pilecki who volunteers for a secret mission to infiltrate Auschwitz. Completely erased from the historical record by Poland’s Communist government, Pilecki remains almost unknown to the world -- until now.

Please Note: Mr. Fairweather will be signing books starting at 1:30PM until 2:00PM.  His lecture will start at 2:00PM.  Copies of his book will be available to purchase.

Mothers and Sons Performance

Pendemer Productions presents Mothers and Sons, a play by Terrence McNally.  At turns funny and powerful, MOTHERS AND SONS portrays a woman who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son's partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and begins to see the life her son might have led.  Written by five-time Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally, MOTHERS AND SONS was hailed by the New York Observer as "A masterpiece. Profound, heartbreaking and triumphant!" 

Suggested audience is older teens and adults.  Discussion to follow the performance.  

There will be three separate performances at Mt. Lebanon Public Library:

Wednesday, Sept. 25th at 7:00PM
Thursday, Sept. 26th at 7:00PM
Sunday, Sept. 29th at 2:00PM

PENDEMER PRODUCTIONS is a non-profit community theater that presents plays and musicals that are new to, or infrequently performed in, the Pittsburgh area. These are shows that examine and illuminate the human condition in dramatic, comic and/or musical terms.

Mothers and Sons Performance

Pendemer Productions presents Mothers and Sons, a play by Terrence McNally.  At turns funny and powerful, MOTHERS AND SONS portrays a woman who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son's partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and begins to see the life her son might have led.  Written by five-time Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally, MOTHERS AND SONS was hailed by the New York Observer as "A masterpiece. Profound, heartbreaking and triumphant!" 

Suggested audience is older teens and adults.  Discussion to follow the performance.  

There will be three separate performances at Mt. Lebanon Public Library:

Wednesday, Sept. 25th at 7:00PM
Thursday, Sept. 26th at 7:00PM

CANCELLED Beginners Irish Gaelic

Join us for an adventure in learning Irish Gaelic, “Gaeilge” or just “Irish” as it is known on the emerald isle, Saturdays, here at the Mt. Lebanon Library. 

This course is aimed at developing basic conversational skills with no previous knowledge assumed. We will be using the online Buntus Cainte (Fundamentals of Speech) course as a basis for the lessons and a subscription will be included free for all who sign up. Additional notes on turns of phrase, points of grammar, etc. will accompany each lesson.

Irish is the original language of Ireland and has had a difficult history.  Outlawed for many years under pain of death, it was kept alive and still exists today as the first language in different areas of the country.  It has been recently undergoing somewhat of a resurgence as it is now becoming more popular among the youth.

Irish is one of the Celtic languages, which include Scottish Gaelic, Welsh, Breton, Cornish and Manx. This class of languages is rather unique and unrelated to other modern languages.

Salvaging the Fleet Part II

Most of us have an understanding of the 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Few are acquainted with the aftermath in which our Navy undertook to clear the harbor and salvage what was left of the US battle fleet. Join radio's Mike Plaskett for more stories and photos of miracles of accomplishment. In part I, we learned about the USS Washington, West Virginia and Arizona. This time we'll discuss ships that the Navy brass considered goners: the USS Oklahoma, the mine flagship Oglala and three destroyers, Shaw, Cassin and Downes. No surprise, US sailors and civilians in this phase of the war were incredibly capable and courageous -- they were truly the "First Team."  

Listen to Mike Plaskett with co-host Dale Abraham for Rhythm Sweet & Hot on 90.5 FM, WESA, an NPR station, every Saturday from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
