Gordon Sarti: Artist for April

Come to the library during the month of April as we welcome artist Gordon Sarti to our lower level art gallery!

From the artist, Gordon Sarti:

“A Photo Tour of Slippery Rock Gorge”
I believe God had a hand in my pursuing nature photography. I have always had an interest in Nature. I was drawn to it. My work is exhibited so that I can share in God’s creations. I am convinced it takes someone greater than I to have created the simplest of plants to the greatness of earth and our universe.

Most of my original photographs are taken in their natural setting. My work is not staged in any way. On occasion, I will take an individual photograph and apply an artistic touch to try and create an interesting piece of work.

This exhibit is a Tour of Slippery Rock Gorge located near Slippery Rock Township, PA.
There will be no formal reception but I will be available on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings, April 2, 3, and 4 from 6:00-7:00 for any interested person who would want to discuss my work.

Arnold Palmer - Homespun Stories of the King by Chris Rodell

The Oakmont Library is pleased to welcome Chris Rodell as he presents about his new book, Arnold Palmer: Homespun Stories of the King!

Each sport has its heroes, those unique talents whose exploits become modern mythology to those who follow in their footsteps. Even as their records fall, these special athletes retain their status as legends. Their names transcend sport, as their successes and personalities etch their place in history. Nobody represents this rarified iconic status more than Arnold Palmer.


In Arnold Palmer: Homespun Stories of The King (Triumph Books, May 15, 2018), Latrobe, PA resident and personal friend of Palmer’s Chris Rodell offers a new take on the legendary figure. Drawing on more than 100 interviews conducted over decades of acquaintance, Rodell delves into Palmer’s character away from the game, examining Palmer’s relationship to his hometown and its people. The insights and anecdotes showcase a different side of Palmer, giving fans a glimpse of the King passing up his throne for a barstool, Magnolia Lane for Main Street and the big stage for the small town. Highlights include:


· A heartfelt foreword from 9-time major championship winner Gary Player

· Stories depicting Palmer’s devotion to his fans, and the mountains of zany autograph requests filtered through the local post office

· The Palmer Timeline: milestones, trivia, news clippings and other irreverent tidbits from a truly remarkable American life

· Why Palmer loved his hometown club more than any of the famous courses around the world

· Palmer’s legacy, in Latrobe and beyond, in the words of those who knew him best

Arnold Palmer: Homespun Stories of The King introduces fans not to the iconic personality they’ve long admired, but to the neighbor they never knew. Rodell’s perspective is equal parts journalism and fan mail, combining a professional approach with a relatable, accessible voice. Both golf historians and the younger generation of fans will find value in this enlightening, engaging portrait of Palmer. No golfer’s library is complete without it.

About the Author:

Chris Rodell's writing has appeared in publications including Sports Illustrated, Esquire, Men's Health, Golf and Arnold Palmer's Kingdom Magazine.

Meet Author Peter Stark

Please join Oakmont Carnegie Library in welcome author Peter Stark for a book signing and discussion of his new book, Young Washington.  

George Washington is lionized as wise and virtuous, the indispensable Founding Father. Yet, as New York Times bestselling author Peter Stark explores in his incisive new book, YOUNG WASHINGTON: How Wilderness and War Forged America’s Founding Father (Ecco; On sale May 1, 2018; $35.00, 528 pages; ISBN 978-0-06-241606-3), Washington in his youth was immature, arrogant and prone to disastrous mistakes. His impulsive actions as a flailing commander serving the British Crown in the Pennsylvania wilderness ignited the French and Indian War, which in turn helped spark the American Revolution. Stark tells a gripping adventure story about Washington’s struggling early years so at odds with his popular image, while showing how Washington’s passage through the wilderness laid the groundwork for the great leader he would become.

“George Washington at twenty-one was a very different Washington from the one we know and hold sacred,” Stark writes.  Contrary to the Washington of the cherry-tree bedtime story, the real young Washington was “ambitious, temperamental, vain, thin-skinned, petulant, awkward, demanding, stubborn, annoying, hasty and passionate. This Washington has not yet learned to cultivate his image or contain his emotions. Here, instead, is a raw young man struggling toward maturity and in love with a close friend’s wife. This is the Washington of emotional neediness, personal ambition, and mistakes—many mistakes.”

 In YOUNG WASHINGTONStark takes us into Washington’s head and helps us understand what drove Washington: how he fumbled into and found his way out of multiple crises and how these experiences helped forge the wise, empathetic leader he became.

 Stark, a historian and seasoned adventure writer, paddled, hiked, and climbed the region where young Washington’s story played out. Stark recounts Washington’s early exploits into the wilderness with singular empathy, bringing to bear his own insights into the psychological stresses of the unknown.

 Peter Stark is the author of the New York Times bestseller Astoria, along with The Last Empty Places, Last Breath, and At the Mercy of the River. He is a frequent contributor to Outside Magazine, has written for Smithsonian and the New Yorker and has been nominated for a National Magazine Award. He lives in Montana with his wife and children.

 In this vivid telling, Stark breathes new life into a Washington who exists largely outside the lore of American history.

This Washington has not yet learned to cultivate his image or contain his emotions. Here, instead, is a raw young man struggling toward maturity and in love with a close friend’s wife. This is the Washington of emotional neediness, personal ambition, and mistakes—many mistakes.”

 In YOUNG WASHINGTONStark takes us into Washington’s head and helps us understand what drove Washington: how he fumbled into and found his way out of multiple crises and how these experiences helped forge the wise, empathetic leader he became.

 Stark, a historian and seasoned adventure writer, paddled, hiked, and climbed the region where young Washington’s story played out. Stark recounts Washington’s early exploits into the wilderness with singular empathy, bringing to bear his own insights into the psychological stresses of the unknown.

 Peter Stark is the author of the New York Times bestseller Astoria, along with The Last Empty Places, Last Breath, and At the Mercy of the River. He is a frequent contributor to Outside Magazine, has written for Smithsonian and the New Yorker and has been nominated for a National Magazine Award. He lives in Montana with his wife and children.

 In this vivid telling, Stark breathes new life into a Washington who exists largely outside the lore of American history.

Documentary - Living While Dying

In a world that sees death as something to vanquish, the 45-minute documentary Living While Dying? presents an alternative: people living with terminal illness who greet the inevitable with courage, humor, creativity and acceptance. Though the subject is difficult, the film is surprisingly uplifting. In Living While Dying?, filmmaker Cathy Zheutlin sets out on a brave quest to face mortality. The new film will be screened in multiple cities this spring. Every screening is followed by a facilitated Q & A with light refreshments.  Program is done in conjunction with Death Cafe.  

Death is a big mystery, yet the outcome is 100% certain. Dispelling traditional fears and expectations about death, Living While Dying ?invites us to reimagine and set the stage for our own inevitable endings. It offers profound opportunities to uncover value, grace, and meaning for all stages of life. Zheutlin travels from Portland to Australia to Bali as she explores and unravels her own fears with an open, upbeat style. Along the way, she meets an Aboriginal elder and a “death walker” in Australia, and she witnesses a mass cremation in Bali. Because it's personal, she invites her 90-year old mom to an outside the box moment - sitting inside a box, a coffin, to talk with her about her end-of-life wishes. Says Zheutlin, “It's not really about dying at all. It’s about asking: ‘How am I living today, because I actually could die tomorrow...Is the life I am living today the life I truly want.

4:00 Tuesday Movie: 'Goodbye Christopher Robin'

Please note 4PM start time for June and July.

A. A. Milne, the creator of Winnie the Pooh, was a shell-shocked WWI veteran trying to restart his writing career. He hits on a children's book based on his son's toys. The book's success brings comfort to a war-weary England and fame to young Christopher Robin, but at what cost to him and his family?
