ARTIST OF THE MONTH: Anita Rabinoff-Goldman

The graphic quality of 18th and 19th century American quilts created a new audience for the highly creative and beautifully crafted handwork of unknown women artists of those periods. A pivotal exhibit of American quilts at the Whitney Museum of Art in 1971 turned many visual artists to the medium. I was one of them. 

Since then, the art quilt has gained deserved respect as a visual medium with its own unique appeal. Not content to recreate traditional patterns, I wanted to use the quilt to express aesthetic concerns such as image, line, and color. 

Quilts are my canvas, fabrics my paint. While visual imagery may be transferable between media, the added tactile dimension of the quilt along with the emotional dimension that fabric adds to our lives, make quilt making a more potent creative force for me. I take my emotional response to the exterior landscape--seasons, colors, energy--as well as my interior landscape--rooms, relationships, the imagination--and create imagery through the use of pattern, color and texture.

A native of New York City, I received a degree in Art and Art History from the University of Albany. After living and working in Albany for many years, I recently relocated to the Boston area. My work has appeared in numerous local and national shows and is represented in private collections.

ARTIST'S RECEPTION: Sunday, February 11, 12:30 p.m.

Owls & Their Prey! - Rescheduled
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Grades 1 - 5

Our Early Release Day Program, rescheduled due to snow

Expand your awareness of food chains, life cycles and ecosystems! Observe the contents of a North American owl pellet, learn about the habits of owls, their adaptations and roles in nature, and discover firsthand the types of prey owls consume!

After an introduction to owls and their physical and behavioral adaptations, participants will be divided into small groups.  Each group will be given a sterilized owl pellet.  Kids will dissect the owl pellet, being careful to separate the tiny bones from the fur, observe the different types of prey consumed, the number of prey in each pellet, and see if they can put together a full or partial skeleton.
No live owls will be at the program.

Film Club Presents Hitchcock's The Thirty Nine Steps
1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Based on the classic espionage novel by John Buchan, The Thirty-Nine Steps involves one of Hitchcock’s favorite themes: an innocent man on the run. Robert Donat plays the affable Mr. Hannay, an average fellow who encounters a mysterious woman claiming to be a spy pursued by enemy agents. When she is murdered, Hannay becomes the lead suspect, and his only chance of exoneration is to stay one step ahead of the police and spies alike.

As one the most admired films of Hitchcock’s British period, The Thirty-Nine Steps is listed by the British Film Institute as the 4th Best British film of the 20th Century. It was also a personal favorite of Orson Welles, who adapted it for his own Mercury Theatre.

Not Rated, 86 Minutes, 1935

Film Screening, Left on Pearl with Director, Susie Rivo
1:30 PM - 4:00 PM

The stirring LEFT ON PEARL documents how a march to honor International Women's Day in Boston during the early 1970's shifted course in more ways than one when a group of women ignored the planned route and turned left down Pearl Street to occupy 888 Memorial Drive, a Harvard-owned former knitting factory they intended to take over as a women's center. What ensued was a 10-day standoff with local authorities as the women refused to back down. The film offers a fascinating demonstration of intersectionality in action, as the women's cause meets up with the gay rights movement, as well as the push for the university to build low-income housing to make up for the homes it had demolished in the name of expansion. Ultimately, it offers a timely examination into the power of protest to achieve some much-needed social change. (by Adam Lubitow, City Newspaper, Rochester NY)

A 55-minute documentary by Susie Rivo

Edited by Iftach Shavit, Videography by Lynn Weissman

From Conflict to Collaboration: An Overview of the Collaborative Problem Solving Parenting Approach
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Do you ever feel frustrated with your child? Find yourself shouting and imposing consequences in reaction to challenging behavior but it doesn't make things better? Imagine having a simple framework that guides you in every parenting challenge and that brings out the best in both you and your child. This presentation provides an overview of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach, which gives parents concrete tools to relate better to their kids, reduce their challenging behavior, and build their skills in self-regulation, communication, and problem-solving.

Karen Kraut, MPH, is a parenting coach and Certified Trainer in the Collaborative Problem Solving approach based in Massachusetts General Hospital’s Think:Kids program. She founded Be The Parent You Want to Be! to teach parents CPS and co-founded Making Parenting WORK, which brings maternity and parenting wellness to the workplace. Karen presents on CPS throughout greater Boston and, through coaching and workshops, has taught CPS to over 600 adults in the last 4 years.

While listening, kids can color, play games, or (if they're good at doing two things at once!) do their homework.  At the end of class, we'll spend some time talking about books kids are reading, and other books they might like to try.  Please, no tablets, hand-held games or other electronic devices.  Make sure you bring a snack to enjoy! 

Registration is Required.  Visit or call the Youth Services Desk to sign up.  Pick up is promptly at 3:30.

Students walk to the Library with the group from Field School.  They must notify their teacher every week that they are coming to the library.
