Artist for October - Mary Elizabeth Franco

Mary Elizabeth Franco (“Mare”) is a local artist of multiple talents, who studied at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. The creative joy she takes in her work has been expressed through a variety of mediums, with frequent use of acrylics incorporating elements of nature. Starting her career as an interior designer, Mare’s appreciation for beauty not only is reflected in her subject matter, but has led to her present focus on landscape consultation and garden design.

In addition to being “garden caretaker” for many busy homeowners, Mare continues to consult on interior living spaces as well, not only for color selection and furniture placement, but for larger scale hand-painted murals and personally tailored hand-painted furniture.

Mare is skilled in the art of tromp l’oeil (“fool the eye” ) , depicting within her work objects that evoke realistic imagery. A focal point in a local restaurant features her colorful depiction of sunflowers and fills the dining room with whimsy. Her more playful side is reflected in her gift objects, including hand-crafted canvas collectible bags for jewelry, wine, or larger seasonal bags specially designed for repeated use and display. Recent seasonal pieces include small keepsakes rendered on wood, paper, canvas and antique slate. Mare’s pet portraits capture the unique spirit of her animal subjects and bring them to life. One such example is a large mural in a nearby pet hotel, full of whimsical creatures and family pets which she has also rendered on a smaller scale for her in-home clients. Mare specializes in children’s rooms and nurseries. She also does a wide range of canvas work, including landscapes and abstracts.

Mare’s use of layered color and her imaginative ability to vividly capture her subjects make each piece of her art memorable, large or small.

Psychological Principles of Personal and Spiritual Development with Richard Valinsky, Ph.D.

This seminar will examine personal and spiritual development.  Some of the material will be based on a book written by Dr. Valinsky, “Perennial Psychology of the Bible: The Internal Battle for Communion and Union with Divine Consciousness”.  The book is available from Amazon.com.  The book is not necessary for the seminar but is recommended.  The seminar will consist of lectures, discussion, and experimental exercises.  Please register for this event online or by calling the library at 412-828-9532.  10 sessions on Wednesdays from 11:30 to 12:30 beginning September 12th.  Free but donations are accepted.  

Dr. Valinsky, a psychologist, has been a practicing psychotherapist for fifty years.  He was Director of the Holistic Center of Pittsburgh, Director of the Psychological Services of the Pain Management Program at St. Francis Medical Center, consulting psychologist to the pain management program at Presbyterian University Hospital under the directorship of Dr. Rubin Tenicella, and Director of the Buffalo New York branch of the Himalayan Institute of Yoga Science and Philosophy where he taught courses in meditation and Yoga philosophy and psychology.  He currently has a private practice of psychotherapy in Oakmont Pennsylvania. 

He has studied various spiritual paths including Judaism (Kabballah), Christianity, Yoga, Native American, and the Sufi (Moslem) paths.  He has been a student of a Yoga master, Swami Rama, who initiated him into a meditation practice and a Native American (Lakota Sioux) medicine and Yuwipi man, Chief Luciano Perez, under whose role as the ceremonial leader he participated in Inipi and Yuwipi ceremonies and a vision quest.  His interest in spirituality grew out of his professional work as a psychologist to alleviate the suffering and also the absence of meaning and joy in the lives of many of the people who came to see him.  He has previously presented a meditation course at the Oakmont Library.

Marketing the Presidency with Steve Mihaly
 Join us this election season for a fascinating discussion of how presidents market themselves!  Steve Mihaly will share his extensive collection of presidential memorabilia, including a James Monroe snuff box promoting the Monroe Doctrine, a Teddy Roosevelt cast iron door stop, an Eisenhower bar of soap with Ike’s image on it and the words “Clean Up With Ike” and a Richard Nixon shower head where the water comes squirting out of his mouth!  Most folks, when they hear the word”marketing” think of it as a relatively modern day term, but in terms of presidential candidates, from George Washington to today, candidates have been marketing themselves, their ideas, or marketing against their opponent, from the beginning. This presentation focuses on the array of “odd” artifacts that candidates have produced to get the candidate’s name and ideas in front of the electorate. The presentation tends to focus on the whimsical, while at the same time, explaining to the audience why the candidate would actually produce such an oddity and what is the historical significance behind it.  

About Steve Mihaly: 

I am the recently retired Vice President of the HJ Heinz Co., Pittsburgh. My wife Kathy is a substitute school nurse in the North Allegheny and Deer Lakes School Systems, and we have lived in Gibsonia for over the past 20 years. We have one daughter, Katie, who currently lives in Hot Springs Virginia where she is a Guidance Counselor at Valley Elementary.
I began collecting political americana at the age of 10, and have now been collecting for over 50 years, with a collection that now encompasses over 20,000 items. However, this journey started out very humbly and simply. As a young kid, my parents loved to go to antique shops, garage sales, and flea markets.....travels that I did not particularly enjoy. However, I did enjoy American History and one day my dad bought a handful of old political buttons at one of these garage sales and gave them to me. Thus, it gave me something to do and seek out as I was dragged around to these events. From this, I’ve met hundreds of interesting people, including 4 US Presidents. I’ve been featured in numerous newspapers and magazines across the country, including in this area, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, the Beaver County Times, The Butler Eagle, and Pittsburgh Magazine. Beyond the Pittsburgh area I’ve been featured with my collection in the Washington Post, LA Times, as well as several national news and morning TV programs. Today, I still enjoy the thrill of “the hunt” and in particularly, sharing my love of political history.

After 70: Making the Most of the Rest of Your Life

To know how to grow old is the masterwork of wisdom - one of the most difficlt chapters in the great art of living. - Henri Amiel

Yes, aging is a challenging life chapter - a season of inevitable losses, limits, and letting go. That's the difficult news. The more welcome news is that IF we face these challenges forthrightly - with awareness, acceptance, gentleness - and respond to them creatively and authentically, hidden gifts await. 

Join counsellor Eileen as she explores key aspects of how to transform life's last chapter into a meaningful, peaceful, purposeful season. Although Eileen's remarks will be focused primarily on one's senior years, all ages are most welcome to attend.

n Conversation with Zoje Stage: Baby Teeth

In Conversation with Zoje Stage: Baby Teeth

Public
 

We are excited to announce In Conversation with Zoje Stage, Pittsburgh writer here to discuss her debut novel Baby Teeth.

About Baby Teeth:
Meet Hanna. Hanna is a mute seven-year-old who adores her father. He’s the only person who understands her, and all Hanna wants is to live happily ever after with him. But her mother, Suzette, stands in her way. Since she was almost three, Hanna’s felt the need to test Suzette, to find out what she was made of. So Hanna would act, and give Suzette a chance to act in reply. And then she’d know. If Suzette passed or failed. But though Suzette tried, she couldn’t figure out Hanna’s game. So Hanna’s moved on from testing Suzette, to plotting to kill her.
Meet Suzette. She loved Hanna so effortlessly when she was a baby. Baby Hanna had simple, intuitive needs. Girl Hanna is a box within a box, manipulating, antagonizing, and now harming Suzette. Girl Hanna intentionally cut Suzette’s hair, fed a schoolmate paint, set a trashcan on fire, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Suzette is out of options. She needs to put Hanna away to save her marriage, and keep her sanity.

Praise for Baby Teeth….
“A deliciously creepy read.”—New York Post

“Unnerving and unputdownable, BABY TEETH will get under your skin and keep you trapped in its chilling grip until the shocking conclusion.” —Lisa Scottoline*

“Literature has a dark sorority of bad, creepy, and cruel girls, which now includes seven-year-old Hanna. Debut novelist Stage has convincingly created one of the youngest villain’s ever, and readers who appreciate such creepy tykes as Shriver’s Kevin and Doris Lessing’s Ben, will be unable to resist the urge to meet Hanna.”—Booklist

“What makes “Baby Teeth” so good, ultimately, is how skillfully it combines the horror trope of the “Bad Seed” with a relatable portrayal of a mother in crisis. For some women, motherhood is a loss of independence or sense of self, and even the most excited of mothers-to-be can struggle with the stark contrast between what was expected and what is. As such, “Baby Teeth” takes normal parental anxieties to grotesquely entertaining extremes.”- Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Join us at the Oakmont Library on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm for our new TED Talk A/V Book Club!  

In this unique book club, we will be choosing from a series of TED Books and watching the companion talk at every meeting.  These books, on a variety of scientific, educational, and health related topics, are short enough to read in one sitting, but full of big ideas!  Each book has a companion talk that is less than 20 minutes.  At our meetings, we will watch the talk and then discuss the book and the talk together!  From the TED site: TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.  

Join us on November 14 at 6:30pm as we read (and watch) When Strangers Meet: How People You Don't Know Can Transform You by Kio Stark. Kio Stark invites you to discover the unexpected pleasures and exciting possibilities of talking to people you don't know. Stark reveals how these simple, surprising encounters push us toward greater openness and tolerance--and also how these fleeting but powerful emotional connections can change you, and the world we share.

In December, our book will be The Laws of Medicine: Field Notes From an Uncertain Science by Siddhartha MukherjeeEssential, required reading for doctors and patients alike: A Pulitzer Prize-winning author and one of the world’s premiere cancer researchers reveals an urgent philosophy on the little-known principles that govern medicine—and how understanding these principles can empower us all.

TED Talk A/V Book Club

Join us at the Oakmont Library on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm for our new TED Talk A/V Book Club!  

In this unique book club, we will be choosing from a series of TED Books and watching the companion talk at every meeting.  These books, on a variety of scientific, educational, and health related topics, are short enough to read in one sitting, but full of big ideas!  Each book has a companion talk that is less than 20 minutes.  At our meetings, we will watch the talk and then discuss the book and the talk together!  From the TED site: TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages.  

Join us on December 12 at 6:30pm as we read (and watch) The Laws of Medicine: Field Notes From an Uncertain Science by Siddhartha Mukherjee - Essential, required reading for doctors and patients alike: A Pulitzer Prize-winning author and one of the world’s premiere cancer researchers reveals an urgent philosophy on the little-known principles that govern medicine—and how understanding these principles can empower us all. Copies of this book will be available to pick up at the circulation desk of the library before the meeting.  

In January, our book will be The Mathematics of Love: Patterns, Proofs and the Search for the Ultimate Equation by Hannah FryIn this must-have for anyone who wants to better understand their love life, mathematician Hannah Fry pulls back the curtain and reveals the hidden patterns—from dating sites to divorce, sex to marriage—behind the rituals of love.
