Wotiz Gallery Exhibit by the South Shore Camera Club

The South Shore Camera Club will be displaying their "Best Of" Show during the months of November and December in the Wotiz Gallery.  The photographs exemplify the high caliber of work created by the club's 200 members.  The images run the gamut from Judy Bergman Hochberg's delicate artistic rendering of a desert plant ("Yucca") to June Kaps' dramatic classic New England coastal storm ("Squall's Comin") to Michael Cushing's touching street portrait of two Cuban gentlemen ("Cienfuegos, Cuba 2017").  Their work has been exhibited throughout New England at venues such as the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, J Jake Art Gallery in Boston's South End, Plymouth Center for the Arts, Quincy Arts Fest, South Shore Art Center, Milton Art Center, New England Camera Club Council, and other libraries, hospitals and galleries.  These photographers have received awards in recognition of their technical and artistic mastery.  There will be a free and open reception and awards ceremony on Thursday, November 16th from 6-8 PM in the Wotiz.  Acclaimed commercial and fine arts photographer Scott Nobles of Milton is serving as judge, and will select recipients of "Best of Show" and other awards.  Reception attendees may vote for their favorite photo to receive the "People's Choice" award.  For more information go to www.south-shorecamercaclub.com.  Please come and enjoy this lovely display at the library.

Meet the Wicked Cozies, the Softer Side of Crime Fiction
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

If you've read a Miss Marple mystery or watched "Murder She Wrote," then you've experienced a cozy mystery.  Meet six of the top cozy mystery writers (they call themselves the "Wicked Cozies") at the library today starting at 2 PM.  They'll talk about how they write their cozy mystery novels...fun page-turners that take place in a small community with amateur detectives who solve the crime.  Each of these authors has found her own niche, and will share how they own experiences shaped their cozy sleuths.  Milton's own Hallie Ephron, who writes creepy suspense novels, will moderate the panel.  The "Wicked Cozies" are: Jessican Estevao (the "Change of Fortune Mysteries"); Sherry Harris (the "Sarah Winston Garage Sale" series); Julie Hennrikus who also writes as Jullianne Holmes, J.A. Hennrikus, and Julia Henry ("Chime and Punishment"); Edith Maxwell who also writes as Maddie Day (the "Quaker Midwife Mysteries" and the "Cozy Capers Book Group Mysteries"); Liz Mugavero ("Pawsitively Organic Mysteries"); and Barbara Ross ("Maine Clambake Mysteries" series).   Hallie Ephron writes suspense novels and loves reading cozies.  She is the New York Times, Amazon, and USA Today bestselling author of suspense novels.  Her new novel, "You'll Never Know, Dear" tells the story of a little girl's disappearance and the porcelain doll that may hold the key to her fate.  Reviewers call her page turners "deliciously creepy," "Hitchockian," and "unputdownable."  She is a four-time finalist for the Mary Higgins Clark Award.   Come and enjoy this fun presentation!  It is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Photography Talk by Barry Pell: A Year in Chile
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Photographer and teacher Barry Pell will host a talk called "A Year in Chile." Chile is the most remote country on the South American continent.  It occupies a narrow slice of land squeezed between the south Pacific Ocean and the towering and rugged Andes Mountains.  The lecturer and his wife chose Chile's capital, Santiago, to live, to teach English, and to explore the country's culture, landscape and people for one year.  In this presentation, he will take you on a journey from the parched dunes of the Atacama Desert in the north, through the fertile wine valleys, and into the south's stunning lake region, massive glaciers and fjords.  The program will be accompanied by Mr. Pell's photography of a country he considers to be South America's most beautiful.  Please join us for this fascinating event.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is free and open to the public.

Author Ted Reinstein and New England's General Stores
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
"Chronicle" host Ted Reinstein returns to the Milton Public Library and brings his newest book:  New England's General Stores.
Explore the fabric of America over hot coffee and penny candy. Step through the wooden doors of a New England general store and step back in time, into a Norman Rockwell painting and into the heart of America. New England's General Stores offers a nostalgic picture of this colonial staple and, fortunately, steadfast institution of small towns from Connecticut to Maine. This is where children of each generation take their first allowance to buy their very own penny candy. Locals have swapped stories at these counters from gossip to whispers of revolution. In tough times, the general store treated customers like family, extending credit when no one else would. Stubborn as New Englanders themselves, the general store has refused to become a mere sentimental relic of an earlier age.
 
Ted Reinstein has been a reporter for "Chronicle," WCVB-TV/Boston's award-winning--and America's longest-running, locally-produced--nightly news magazine since 1997. 
 
Copies of Ted's books will be available for purchase and signing.
The program is proudly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Local History Book Group with Will: Curse of the Narrows
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join Library Director Will Adamczyk as he discusses interesting books based on true historical events, in his Local History Book Group.  Please read the book  Curse of the Narrows by Laura MacDonald (c2005) in advance, which is the story of the Halifax disaster of 1917.  Boston went to their rescue and that is why Halifax delivers the Boston Common Christmas Tree each year.  

In 1917, the port of Halifax, Nova Scotia, was crowded with ships leaving for war-torn Europe. On December 6th, two of them—the Mont Blanc and the Imo—collided in the Narrows, a hard-to-navigate stretch of the harbor. Ablaze, and with explosions on her deck filling the sky, the Mont Blanc grounded against the city’s docks.   As thousands rushed to their windows and into the streets to watch, she exploded with such force that the 3,121 tons of her iron hull vaporized in a cloud that shot up more than 2,000 feet; the explosion was so unusual that Robert Oppenheimer would study its effects to predict the devastation of an atomic bomb. The blast caused a giant wave that swept over parts of the city, followed by a slick, black rain that fell for ten minutes. Much of the city was flattened, and not one in 12,000 buildings within a 16-mile radius left undamaged. More than 1,600 Haligonians were killed and 6,000 injured; and within twenty-four hours, a blizzard had isolated Halifax from the world.Set vividly against the background of World War I, Curse of the Narrows is the first major account of the world’s largest pre-atomic explosion, the epic relief mission from Boston, and the riveting trial of the Mont Blanc’s captain and pilot. Laura M. Mac Donald is as adept at describing the dynamics of a chain reaction explosion as she is at chronicling unforgettable human dramas of miraculous survival, unfathomable loss, and the medical breakthroughs in pediatrics and eye surgery that followed the disaster.  Using primary sources--many of which haven’t been read in decades and--with a wonderful feel for narrative history, Mac Donald chronicles one of the most compelling and dramatic events of the 20th century Please come prepared to discuss this fascinating book with others.

Tuesday Night at the Movies: Going in Style
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

There will be a free screening tonight of the hilarious film called "Going in Style (c2017)," starting promptly at 6:30 PM.  Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin team up as lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, who decide to buck retirement and step off the straight and narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension funds become a corporate casualty.  Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money..  You will laugh out loud at this very funny story with 3 beloved actors.  It is rated PG-13 for "drug content, language and some suggestive material."  The running time is 96 minutes and it is free and open to the public.  Please come!  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Tales from the Home of the World's Worst Weather: A Talk About Mt. Washington
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Come and hear an interesting one-hour weather program with film clips, given by Will Broussard, the Education Coordinator for the Mount Washington Observatory in North Conway, NH.  An infamous place of extremes, 6,288-foot Mount Washington, New Hampshire has been captivating audiences for hundreds of years.  While many places on Earth experience weather, few are inhabited by humans 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Mount Washington Observatory has been operating a continously-staffed scientific outpost on this remote peak since 1932, providing the Observatory many remarkable stories and an intimate knowledge of the mountain.  Through the years, the hardy men and women of the Observatory have experienced white-out blizzards, stunning 110-mile vistas, and everything in between.  They have survived a 231 mph wind gust, endless days of disorienting fog, and snow drifts more than 20 feet tall. They have worked with scientists and celebrities, students and snow rangers.  They have amassed one of North America's longest continuous climate records, and developed an intimate understanding of the place known as the "Home of the World's Worst Weather."  Join us to learn more at this fascinating program at the library.  The event is free and open to the public and is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Eclectic Book Group with Will: The Attack
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join Library Director, Will Adamczyk, as he moderates his Eclectic Book Club.  Each quarter we'll read and discuss a work of contemporary fiction, with a focus on titles that we might not necessarily have chosen ourselves....possibly controversial, possibly newsworthy, but definitely discussion worthy!  The book to be read in advance is The Attack by Yasmina Khadra (c2004).

From the bestselling author of The Swallows of Kabul comes this timely and haunting novel that powerfully illuminates the devastating human costs of terrorism.Dr. Amin Jaafari is an Arab-Israeli surgeon at a hospital in Tel Aviv. As an admired and respected member of his community, he has carved a space for himself and his wife, Sihem, at the crossroads of two troubled societies. Jaafari’s world is abruptly shattered when Sihem is killed in a suicide bombing.As evidence mounts that Sihem could have been responsible for the catastrophic bombing, Jaafari begins a tortured search for answers. Faced with the ultimate betrayal, he must find a way to reconcile his cherished memories of his wife with the growing realization that she may have had another life, one that was entirely removed from the comfortable, modern existence that they shared.

This program is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Library Knitting Group
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

An informal knitting group will meet at the library which offers an opportunity for people to get together, bring a project to work on (either for 20 minutes or the whole group meeting) and have friends nearby to ask questions when they need help.  The first 30 minutes are devoted to help with your project - the last hour is devoted to social knitting.  Knitters and all other fiber artists are invited to attend!  Questions!  Interested in being included on the Email notice for the gatherings?  Contact Nina Zonnevylle at nzonnevylle@gmail.com .
