After completing the course, you will have a greater appreciation of driving challenges and a better understanding of how to avoid potential collisions and injuring yourself or others.

Morbidity & Mortality: Eight Must Reads for Our Time

Abby Mendelson will be presenting Morbidity & Mortality: Eight "Must Reads" for our Times. Death. It’s our greatest mystery, our greatest fear for ourselves and our loved ones. But how to cope—before and after? How to see, or supervise, the end of life’s journey with sense and dignity? Most, if not all, of us are painfully ill-equipped even to frame the arguments, much less deal with the day-to-day. To clarify our thinking, and ameliorate our struggles, we’ll read all or part of eight first-rate writers who have dealt with death. Register below for the series (10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8 and 11/15).

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.

Yoga for You
Join us for a 60-minute Vinyasa  Yoga class with certified yoga instructors. Vinyasa Yoga consists of  flowing movements synchronized to your breath rhythm.  Modifications and intensification will be offered to meet the needs of beginner students as well as those with a seasoned yoga practice. The flowing sequence will help you build strength, increase flexibility, find mental focus, and teach you how to listen to your body. Each class will begin with warm up flows, followed by a creative standing/ balancing series, floor work and stretching, and ending with a savasana (a resting pose). 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!

Join us for a 60-minute Vinyasa  Yoga class with certified yoga instructors. Vinyasa Yoga consists of  flowing movements synchronized to your breath rhythm.  Modifications and intensification will be offered to meet the needs of beginner students as well as those with a seasoned yoga practice. The flowing sequence will help you build strength, increase flexibility, find mental focus, and teach you how to listen to your body. Each class will begin with warm up flows, followed by a creative standing/ balancing series, floor work and stretching, and ending with a savasana (a resting pose). 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!

After the Caliphate

In 2014, the declaration of the Islamic State caliphate was hailed as a major victory by the global jihadist movement. But it was short-lived. Three years on, the caliphate was destroyed, leaving its surviving fighters – many of whom were foreign recruits – to retreat and scatter across the globe.  So what happens now? Is this the beginning of the end of IS? Or can it adapt and regroup after the physical fall of the caliphate? In this timely analysis, terrorism expert Colin P. Clarke takes stock of IS – its roots, its evolution, and its monumental setbacks – to assess the road ahead.

Colin P. Clarke, Ph.D., is an assistant teaching professor at Carnegie Mellon University. He is also a senior research fellow at The Soufan Center, an associate fellow at the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism – The Hague, and a non-resident senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute.  He's the author of After the Caliphate: The Islamic State & the Future Terrorist Diaspora.

An Evening with Sophie Perinot

The Revolution was female. Sophie Perinot, one of 6 bestselling and award-winning authors behind RIBBONS OF SCARLET: A Novel of the French Revolution’s Women, speaks on the unforgettable women at the book’s center: a proponent of democracy and equal rights for women, a leader of the march on Versailles, a devote princess loyal to her brother the doomed French King, a politician’s wife with more political savvy than her husband, a pike-wielding revolutionary, an assassin, and a famous beauty who hopes to stop the Terror by influencing Robespierre. These women are part of a pattern of forgotten females in history, and Perinot suggests such omissions mistakenly cause us to think of women’s progress as linear.

Morbidity & Mortality: Eight Must Reads for Our Time

Abby Mendelson will be presenting Morbidity & Mortality: Eight "Must Reads" for our Times. Death. It’s our greatest mystery, our greatest fear for ourselves and our loved ones. But how to cope—before and after? How to see, or supervise, the end of life’s journey with sense and dignity? Most, if not all, of us are painfully ill-equipped even to frame the arguments, much less deal with the day-to-day. To clarify our thinking, and ameliorate our struggles, we’ll read all or part of eight first-rate writers who have dealt with death. Register below for the series (10/18, 10/25, 11/1, 11/8 and 11/15).
