ARTIST OF THE MONTH: ED MOVITZ
Ed Movitz is a professor emeritus from the Massachusetts College of Art where he taught Drawing and Painting and where he served as the Head of the Painting Department and as Dean of Undergraduate Studies.  During his career as an artist, he has worked as a painter, printmaker and sculptor, exhibiting throughout New England.
 
Movitz will be exhibiting pen and ink drawings done in the last few decades.  These drawings could be considered “internal ideas”  in that they begin with no preconceived image but rather develop from the first stroke of the pen, each subsequent image growing from the previous one. Movitz deals with ubiquitous subjects: stars, auto wheels, clouds, lightning bolts, solar and lunar discs, aspects of the sea and boats, obelisks, portals, etc. with the goal of creating meaningful and dynamic relationships.

Concert, An Afternoon of Mozart Trios
3:00 PM

The Music Committee is thrilled to open its Fall Season in the Community Room with the Craft Ensemble, a string trio, who will present an all-Mozart performance. First on the program will be Mozart’s transcription of Bach’s preludes and fugues K. 404a, followed by his divertimento in E flat major K. 563. Cellist Velleda Miragias, who has engaged Library audiences for many years, will be joined by violinist Colleen Brannen and violist Amelia Hollander Ames. A French native, Ms. Miragias currently enjoys a diverse career as a freelance, solo, chamber, and orchestral musician, educator, and entrepreneur. Since moving to Boston in 1995, Ms. Brannen has maintained a distinguished and varied career as an orchestral and chamber musician. And Ms. Hollander Ames, who founded the New Jersey chamber music collective Con Vivo Music, has performed in many Boston and New England orchestras and ensembles since moving to the area in 2013. We are very fortunate to have these three talented musicians share their skills and artistic gifts with us, and we hope you will be able to join us for a stimulating and enjoyable afternoon. The concert is free and open to the public, and the Community Room is handicapped accessible.

Baby Sign Language Class with Sheryl White!

For infants and toddlers,
two months through pre-verbal

Sign language is great to learn for all ages. It helps babies communicate, and it enhances early literacy skills for verbal children as well!  In this program, your child will learn sign language through songs, stories, games, play and more.  

Baby sign language, developed by Dr. Joseph Garcia, lets babies and toddlers communicate their needs to their caregivers, so they don’t need to cry or become frustrated.  During the first years of life, Infants and toddlers have a desire to communicate their needs and wants however, speech occurs after cognitive ability.

Baby sign language gives them the ability to communicate their needs and wishes, pre-verbal, without frustration, tears or tantrums. Babies and toddlers can learn signs important to their lifestyle such as “milk”, “more”, “sleep”, “eat”, “Mommy”, “Daddy” and so on.

Learning is at the infants own page. Each individual infant develops the ability to sign at different stages in their growth.  For an infant to start signing, the infant must be able to focus on the hand movement and have the cognitive ability to make the connection than a sign is a gesture of something they need or want.

 

Benefits of Baby Sign Language

  • Reduces frustration for everyone
  • Deepens bonding between you and your baby
  • Gives babies the ability to express themselves before they can speak
  • Accelerates your babies development of speech
  • Increases child’s vocabulary
  • Relieves anxiety about your babies needs
  • Enhances early literacy skills
  • Ads visual and kinesthetic emphasis to auditory input
  • Lower noise levels and aggressive behaviors in childcare settings

Registration is required.  Please sign up at the Youth Services Desk.  The program will be held in the Storytime Room.

Baby Signing!
10:30 AM - 11:15 AM

Baby Sign Language Class with Sheryl White!

For infants and toddlers,
two months through pre-verbal

Sign language is great to learn for all ages. It helps babies communicate, and it enhances early literacy skills for verbal children as well!  In this program, your child will learn sign language through songs, stories, games, play and more.  

Baby sign language, developed by Dr. Joseph Garcia, lets babies and toddlers communicate their needs to their caregivers, so they don’t need to cry or become frustrated.  During the first years of life, Infants and toddlers have a desire to communicate their needs and wants however, speech occurs after cognitive ability.

Baby sign language gives them the ability to communicate their needs and wishes, pre-verbal, without frustration, tears or tantrums. Babies and toddlers can learn signs important to their lifestyle such as “milk”, “more”, “sleep”, “eat”, “Mommy”, “Daddy” and so on.

Learning is at the infants own page. Each individual infant develops the ability to sign at different stages in their growth.  For an infant to start signing, the infant must be able to focus on the hand movement and have the cognitive ability to make the connection than a sign is a gesture of something they need or want.

 

Benefits of Baby Sign Language

  • Reduces frustration for everyone
  • Deepens bonding between you and your baby
  • Gives babies the ability to express themselves before they can speak
  • Accelerates your babies development of speech
  • Increases child’s vocabulary
  • Relieves anxiety about your babies needs
  • Enhances early literacy skills
  • Ads visual and kinesthetic emphasis to auditory input
  • Lower noise levels and aggressive behaviors in childcare settings

Registration is required.  Please sign up at the Youth Services Desk.  The program will be held in the Storytime Room.

Sense the Wind film screening - Film Club 2018
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

In regattas across the US and abroad, visually impaired sailors learn not to fear what they cannot see. They sail by feel: sensing the breeze on a cheek or tension in the tiller, listening to the pattern of waves hitting the hull and sails luffing in the wind.

On Friday, Oct 20 Producer/Director Christine Knowlton will hold a screening of her documentary "Sense the Wind: Blind Sailors Race across Open Water."  The hour long documentary will be followed by Q & A with Knowlton and blind sailor Matt Chao. Six years in the making, "Sense the Wind" follows the journey of four blind sailors as they train and compete in national and international regattas. The film was given the Humanitarian Award at the Socially Relevant Film Festival NY recently.

Exhibits will consist of tastings, demonstrations, and/or activities. Exhibitors and vendors are welcome to sell products as long as they also provide tastings or an interesting demonstration. Priority will be given to artisans or those who use technology in the creation of their confections. We are particularly interested in live technology demonstrations, but video recordings will also be considered.

If you are interested in exhibiting, please submit a Sweet Innovations Exhibitor/Vendor Application before August 15th, 2017. Selected exhibitors and vendors will be notified by the end of August.

All attendees will be encouraged to vote for their favorite entries in the Confection Competition. People's choice awards will be presented to the entries with the most votes.

CONCERT: AMOS LAWRENCE OF THE LICHTENBURG QUARTET
3:00 PM
On Sunday, October 29, 2017 at 3 pm, the Music Committee of the Friends of the Weston Public Library is privileged to present a performance of one of the great works in the chamber music literature:  the Schubert Octet in F Major for winds and strings.   Schubert composed this octet purposely following much of the plan Beethoven used for his Septet, but with augmented instrumentation.  It is truly a major work, and not performed very often, so we are very excited to be able to schedule it with Amos Lawrence of the Lichtenburg Quartet at the helm. The octet is 45 minutes long and will be the only piece on the program. 
 
There will be a reception to meet the artists following the performance in the Community Room.

Baby Sign Language Class with Sheryl White!

For infants and toddlers,
two months through pre-verbal

Sign language is great to learn for all ages. It helps babies communicate, and it enhances early literacy skills for verbal children as well!  In this program, your child will learn sign language through songs, stories, games, play and more.  

Baby sign language, developed by Dr. Joseph Garcia, lets babies and toddlers communicate their needs to their caregivers, so they don’t need to cry or become frustrated.  During the first years of life, Infants and toddlers have a desire to communicate their needs and wants however, speech occurs after cognitive ability.

Baby sign language gives them the ability to communicate their needs and wishes, pre-verbal, without frustration, tears or tantrums. Babies and toddlers can learn signs important to their lifestyle such as “milk”, “more”, “sleep”, “eat”, “Mommy”, “Daddy” and so on.

Learning is at the infants own page. Each individual infant develops the ability to sign at different stages in their growth.  For an infant to start signing, the infant must be able to focus on the hand movement and have the cognitive ability to make the connection than a sign is a gesture of something they need or want.

 

Benefits of Baby Sign Language

  • Reduces frustration for everyone
  • Deepens bonding between you and your baby
  • Gives babies the ability to express themselves before they can speak
  • Accelerates your babies development of speech
  • Increases child’s vocabulary
  • Relieves anxiety about your babies needs
  • Enhances early literacy skills
  • Ads visual and kinesthetic emphasis to auditory input
  • Lower noise levels and aggressive behaviors in childcare settings

A Christmas Carol with Delvena Theatre Company
7:00 PM - 8:15 PM

This beloved ghost story, first published in December 1843, was written by author Charles Dickens with the expectation that it would haunt readers' houses pleasantly. Delvena Theatre Company will present, complete with period costumes, a dramatic reading of this wonderful message of hope and love: 

“Through a series of spectral visions, the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is allowed to review his life and to change its outcome. The Ghost of Christmas Past reveals vignettes of Scrooge’s early life as a schoolboy, an apprentice, and a young man in love. The Ghost of Christmas Present reveals to Scrooge that joy has little to do with wealth; together they visit the homes of Bob Cratchit, Scrooge’s much-abused clerk, and of his generous nephew Fred, who has married for love. Finally the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come allows Scrooge a vision of what his end will be like if he continues on his present course—he will die despised and unmourned. After witnessing these scenes, Scrooge is a changed man. He immediately sets about mending his ways, becoming generous and thoughtful and thereby finding redemption and joy.”  

             --A Christmas Carol, Merriam Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature, Merriam-Webster, 1995

Delvena Theatre Company was founded in 1992 by a group of working actors. The company was nominated for two Independent Reviewers of New England (IRNE) awards for acting as well as a Best Ensemble award.  Their original shows are designed to educate as well as entertain.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
