Monette Shuttleworth from the Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh leads this monthly 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.

Yoga for You

We encourage the use of yoga props during practice. If you have a yoga block, a yoga strap or a hand towel you're welcome to bring them to class but they are not required. Each participant should bring a yoga mat, water and any yoga questions you may have.  We love to talk yoga and we look forward to seeing you on your mat soon!

Banished from Johnstown: Racist Backlash in Pennsylvania

Journalist Cody McDevitt, author of the critically acclaimed Pittsburgh Drinks: A History of Cocktails, Nightlife and Bartending Tradition, will be discussing his latest book, Banished from Johnstown: Racist Backlash in Pennsylvania. Inspired by the Rosedale Oral History Project, a concerted effort to track down descendants of people who were forced out of any community based on race, religion or on any other identifying characteristic, Banished from Johnstown tells the story of one of the worst civil rights injustices in Western Pennsylvania history.

In 1923, in response to the fatal shooting of four policemen, the mayor of Johnstown ordered every African American and Mexican immigrant who had lived in the city for less than seven years to leave. They were given less than a day to move or would face crippling fines or jail time and were forced out at gunpoint. An estimated two thousand people uprooted their lives in response to the racist edict. 

Registration required; please register on the library's event's calendar or call 412-531-1912 (reference desk).

The Postman Always Rings Twice Movie and Discussion

The Mt Lebanon Library Speaker Series will welcome Laura Lippman on Monday, April 20th. In her 2018 novel, SUNBURN, Lippman pays homage to the master noir crime writer, James Cain. Lippmann writes, “…..to write a noir story worthy of Cain, I’d have to be willing to risk writing about people who were anything but likeable." Three of Hollywood’s most memorable films of the 1940’s bring Cain’s novels to life and Lippman’s observations that the best noir novels feature dreamers who become schemers.

Join Elaine Wertheim for a viewing and discussion of The Postman Always Rings Twice. Nick Smith, a middle-aged roadside diner owner, hires a drifter, Frank Chambers, to work at his restaurant. Frank quickly begins an affair with Nick's beautiful young wife, Cora, and the two conspire to kill Nick and seize his assets. When they succeed, local prosecutor Kyle Sackett becomes suspicious, but is unable to build a solid case. However, the couple soon realizes that no misdeed ever goes truly unpunished.
