The second half of the performance will feature the Schumann Fantasy, Op. 17. Mr. Saxon will introduce each piece withI brief anecdotes or stories about his experiences with the compositions.

Cyber Security and You: Cyber Criminals
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

http://downloads.newtonfreelibrary.net/programs/EK%20images/07_2017/wx07_20_Program_Etay_Mayor.jpgWhen asked "Why do you rob banks", Willie Sutton famously replied "Because that's where the money is." Banks and financial institutions have always been a major target, and this didn't when they decided to offer their services online. Phishing, Trojan horses, social engineering and other technologies have been used by cybercriminals for over a decade. In this session we will take a look at how these threats operate and how cybercrime turned into a $500B industry. The program will include live demos of hacking techniques and a tour of the dark web where this tools and services are bought and sold. Etay Mayor, Executive Security Advisor, IMB Security, will facilitate. This program is cosponsored by the City of Newton Department of Senior Services.

Janet Shalstrom’s drawings reflect her origins in the countryside. An exploration of landscapes, they express the experience of looking within that landscape and finding that we can begin to see yet more worlds within one small sector of the larger world. Julianne Martin hopes her viewers will experience her paintings in a way that is similar to looking at the surface of water. From emptiness and depth rushes a true focus. The public is welcome to attend the reception, refreshments will be served.

The producers of Godzilla reimagine the origins of one the most powerful monster myths of all in Kong: Skull Island, from Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures and Tencent Pictures. This compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful.

As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong. Rated PG-13. Runtime 118 minutes.
