TIM O’SHEA is from Killarney in the south west of Ireland.  He has worked as a professional musician and producer for over twenty five years, solo, in duos and in several bands, since the 1980’s.

Stewart.

Pádraig Timoney is a singer, guitarist and fiddle player from Dublin. Currently is based in Saratoga County in Upstate New York. He plays Irish Folk music and has performed with several Irish traditional music groups in Ireland and the USA. He now performs regularly as a solo act, in venues across Saratoga County as well as at Irish pub sessions. His performances aim to introduce authentic Traditional Irish Folk Songs and Tunes to audiences in the USA.

This concert is brought to you by the Friends of the Voorheesville Library.

Amina's Voice by Hena Khan

Amina has never been comfortable in the spotlight. She is happy just hanging out with her best friend, Soojin. Now that she’s in middle school, everything feels different. Soojin is suddenly hanging out with Emily, one of the “cool” girls, and even talking about changing her name to something more “American.” Does Amina need to start changing, too, or hiding who she is to fit in? While Amina grapples with these questions, she is devastated when her local mosque is vandalized. This is a poignant book about a Pakistani-American Muslim girl who struggles to stay true to her family’s vibrant culture while simultaneously blending in at school after tragedy strikes her community. The Library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families. Grades 4 -5, please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book.

Remember the Holocaust - An Evening with Teacher/Author Matthew Rozell
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

A Train Near Magdeburg: A Teacher’s Journey into the Holocaust and the Reuniting of the Survivors and Liberators, 70 Years On

Maybe you've seen the photograph before. It has been used by Holocaust museums and memorials all over the world, in books, magazines, and documentaries. It’s all over social media platforms.  But no one ever saw it publicly until Matthew Rozell sat down to interview the World War II veterans who were present when it was taken. They were there. They saw what happened. And they acted in the middle of a shooting war. More importantly, Rozell has chronicled the whole story behind what it really means and helped to reunite the soldiers with the people that they saved six decades after that fateful spring morning in 1945.

Award-winning teacher and historian, Matthew Rozell will give a presentation about the extraordinary story behind an iconic 1945 photograph, which records the whole incredible story about Holocaust survivors left to die on a train in Nazi Germany and the America soldiers that liberated them.

Matthew Rozell is an award-winning history teacher, author, speaker and blogger on the topic of the most cataclysmic events in the history of mankind including World War II and the Holocaust. Mr. Rozell has been featured as the “ABC World News Person of the Week” and has had his work as a teacher filmed for the CBS Evening News, NBC Learn, the Israeli Broadcast Authority, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the New York State United Teachers.

Matthew Rozell’s books will be available for purchase and signing. For more on Matthew Rozell, visit his web site at www.matthewrozell.com .

When Squirrel comes barreling into the chicken coop, the chicks know they’re about to get a case. But with his poor knowledge of shapes and utter fear of whatever it is that’s out there, the panicky Squirrel is NO HELP. It’s up to the Chicken Squad to crack the case! The Library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families. Grades 2 - 3, please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book.

What is consent? What is sexual assault? How can you protect yourself? Where do you go for help? A panel of experts will facilitate an interactive presentation for older teens and parents that will emphasize practical, hands-on skills and information to promote safety and independence.  Using the national “It’s On Us: Stop Sexual Assault” campaign and other resources, the discussion will focus on sexual assault and the topics of recognizing sexual assault, identifying situations in which sexual assault may occur, bystander awareness, strategies to know when and how to intervene, creating an environment where sexual assault is unacceptable, how to help survivors of sexual assault, and prevention strategies. For ages 16 and older, parents strongly encouraged to attend as well. Teen attendees will earn Community Service credit. As further incentive to students, participants will be entered into a drawing to receive the cost of their prom ticket refunded!  Please register.

The panel will include Diane Blinn,  Licensed Clinical Social Worker;  Chris Gilhooly,  Licensed Clinical Social Worker;  Dr. Marcus Hotaling, PhD, Director of Counseling at Union College; Karen Draper, Sexual Assault Educator; and Morgan Zell, a recent graduate of Barnard College.

Family Book Discussion with Potluck and Author Skype Visit

Trouble the Water by Frances O'Roark Dowell

11-year-old Callie is fearless, stubborn, and a little nosy, so when she sees an old dog wandering around town, she’s going to figure out who he belongs to. When her sleuthing leads her to cross paths with a white boy named Wendell who wants to help, the segregated town doesn’t take too kindly to their budding friendship. Meanwhile, a nearly invisible boy named Jim is stuck in a cabin in the woods. He’s lost his dog, but can’t remember exactly when. When his companion, a little boy named Thomas, who’s been invisible much longer than he, explains that they are ghosts, the two must figure out why they can’t seem to cross the river to the other side.  Trouble the Water is a story that spans lifetimes, showing that history never truly disappears, and that the past will haunt us until we step up to change the present and stand together for what is right.

The evening will begin with a potluck dinner. Please bring a dish to share. Beverages and dessert provided by the Library. We are excited that the author will join us via Skype at 6:45! Join other families for an exciting evening of food and discussion.  For children grades 4-8 with parent or caregiver. Please register and pick up a copy of the book at the Information Desk.

Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix (1st book in "The Missing" series)

13-year-old Jonah has always known that he was adopted, and he's never thought it was any big deal. He and a new friend, Chip, who's also adopted, begin receiving mysterious letters. The first one says, "You are one of the missing." The second one says, "Beware! They're coming back to get you." Jonah, Chip, and Jonah's sister are plunged into a mystery that involves the FBI, a vast smuggling operation, an airplane that appeared out of nowhere, and people who seem to appear and disappear at will. The kids discover they are caught in a battle between two opposing forces that want very different things for Jonah and Chip's lives. Do Jonah and Chip have any choice in the matter? And what should they choose when both alternatives are horrifying? The Library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families. Grades 4 -5, please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book.

A Moment and a Memory: WWII Stories through Sketches
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

William H. Frake III (Bill) has rubbed shoulders with some of Hollywood’s most renowned elite and has walked the red carpet at some of its glitziest events, but if you ask the award-winning animator what encounter in his illustrious career stands out the most, he will tell you it’s no one you’ll find on the silver screen. For him, there are no bigger American heroes than our military veterans especially those from World War II. Frake has used his artistic talent to pay tribute to these brave men and women in his “A Moment and a Memory: WWII Stories through Sketches.”

Join Mr. Frake for a discussion about his books composed of hundreds of personal collections of illustrated stories of WWII friends and acquaintances. He has been privileged to have known many WWII veterans and has gone on several WWII reunions and met them, their wives, and their families. Bill gathered these "memories" from the men and women who experienced these "moments" as WWII veterans. It is they who Bill draws for. If he can bring a smile and a good laugh, then he has accomplished what these book were intended to encapsulate. Several of the WWII veterans featured in the books will be in attendance. Books will be available for sale. Please register.

To make matters worse, Eleanor’s been chosen for the lead role in the springtime musical, which means she has to sing a solo in front of the entire school!  The Library will be closed except for the book discussion participants and their families. Grades 2 - 3, please register at the Information Desk and pick up a copy of the book.

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The nonfiction book discussion group meets at 1pm and 7pm, the second Monday, every other month, to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

At stake is nothing less than who we are, and what we will become. There have been monopolists in the past but today's corporate giants have far more nefarious aims. They’re monopolists who want access to every facet of our identities and influence over every corner of our decision-making. Until now few have grasped the sheer scale of the threat. Foer explains not just the looming existential crisis but the imperative of resistance. 

Please register at the Information Desk.

Books will be available for purchase ($5). Library copies will also be available for checkout and all titles are available on our Book Discussion Kindle and Overdrive.

Nonfiction Book Discussion*
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM

The nonfiction book discussion group meets at 1pm and 7pm, the second Monday, every other month, to discuss a thought-provoking nonfiction book about about history, politics, contemporary issues, etc. 

In 1955, white men in the Mississippi Delta lynched a fourteen-year-old from Chicago named Emmett Till. His murder was part of a wave of white terrorism in the wake of the 1954 Supreme Court decision that declared public school segregation unconstitutional. Only weeks later, Rosa Parks thought about young Emmett as she refused to move to the back of a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Five years later, Black students who called themselves “the Emmett Till generation” launched sit-in campaigns that turned the struggle for civil rights into a mass movement. Till’s lynching became the most notorious hate crime in American history.

Please register at the Information Desk.

Books will be available for purchase ($5). Library copies will also be available for checkout and all titles are available on our Book Discussion Kindle and Overdrive.
