Eclectic Book Group with Will: Little Children by Tom Perrotta
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join Library Director Will Adamczyk as he moderates our "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!  Our Spring read is Little Children by Tom Perrotta (St. Martin's Press, c2004).

Here is a description of the book:  "Sarah Pierce is a new stay-at-home mom struggling with the solitude of her new role.  Spending every moment with a three-year-old tests the patience of the one-time English scholar.  One day, at a local playground, she interacts with a group of moms and the differences are clear.  They embrace motherhood and seem to relish all that their new role brings.  One day, Brad, a stay-at-home dad brings his son to the playground.  Sarah is amazed to find these moms have never talked to Brad and one of the women bets Sarah five dollars that she won't get his phone number.  Sarah not only gets his phone number, but she lets him in on the joke and they hug and kiss. Emasculated by his wife, Kathy, Brad becomes slightly obsessed with finding ways to demontrate he can still produce testosterone.  Soon, Sarah and Brad start a passionate affair.  At the same time, their quiet suburban community deals with Ronnie, a convicted pedophile who has just been released from prison.  He returns to his mother's home and she helps him endure the constant taunts of an overzealous neighbor.  These lives intersect in surprising and potentially dangerous ways."  

Please join Will for a very interesting discussion about a fascinating book.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Poetry of Pop Music
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate we are holding a “Poetry of Pop Music” workshop!

Students will learn about what a poem is--and what a poem isn’t--as well as learning about different poetic forms. Students will also try their hand at writing some poems of their own. Each student should bring with them a copy of the lyrics to their current favorite song. This workshop is taught by Eliza Wagner Srestha, founder and director of ES Tutoring & Consulting and a veteran educator with seventeen years of teaching experience. She provides educational services to families, schools, and non-profits that include individual and group tutoring, parent coaching, curriculum development, and teacher training.

An Evening of Frost: Celebration for National Poetry Month
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Actor and instructor Stephen Collins will give a talk for National Poetry Month about Robert Frost and his work.  . "An Evening of Frost" is a unique, interactive performance that begins with a short biographical introduction into the poet's life.  Robert Frost is greatly misunderstood.  Certain people, some academics and politicians included, have tried to pigeonhole him, however the man is far more complicated than surface indicates.  This is, after all, a man who voted for Eugene Debs, one of the best known Socialists of the United States, but was vehemently opposed to Roosevelt and "The New Deal.  It is this man that is seen in his poems that are often dialectic between chaos and order.  As part of the performance, an open discussion of the following poems will include: "A Tuft of Flowers," "Mending Wall," "Birches," "After Apple Picking," "Acquainted with the Night," and "Desert Places,"  Stephen is hoping that people will come having read these poems, willing to discuss them.  The performance closes with a dramatic reading of Frost's masterful use of blank verse in the hauntingly memorable "The Deah of the Hired Man."  This program is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Tuesday Night at the Movies: The Confirmation
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

There will be a free screening of the movie "The Confirmation" this evening.  Clive Owen shines in this irresistible comedy about an estranged father and son, whose weekend adventure leads to something they never imagined: a true family connection.  Scott Carty of KOMO-TV (ABC) Seattle says about this film: "The Confirmation strikes at the heart, tickles the funny bone and delivers hopeful inspiration."  It is rated PG-13 for "some mature thematic elements" and the running time is 101 minutes.  This movie may not be appropriate for children under 13, but otherwise it is a very good choice for teens and adults.  If you haven't seen it, please come as you will very much enjoy the entertaining story and the wonderful characters. "Tuesday Night at the Movies" is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Maria Karagianis talks about her visit to a Syrian Refugee Camp
7:00 PM - 8:15 PM

Maria Karagianis, an award-winning writer and former guest editor of The Boston Globe, will present a talk about the plight of Syrian refugees in Greece. In May 2015, Maria traveled to the Greek Island of Lesbos, the most Eastern tip of the Mediterranean and within sight of Turkey. At that time hundreds of thousands of refugees were spilling onto the beaches in leaky boats, many of them dying, trying to find freedom from the war. The Greek people of the island, who have been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for their generosity, are now facing an economic catastrophe with tourism, their main source of income, virtually destroyed.

Maria was honored to be invited to stay with a Greek family and have the unique opportunity to experience the island through local eyes. She visited a Syrian refugee camp where 3,500 are imprisoned and in limbo since the EU’s deal to send them back to Turkey. She will share her first-hand observations of the refugee crisis.

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

Wotiz Gallery Exhibit: The Bay State - A Multicultural Landscape

During the months of May and June, the Library is hosting a very talented Massachusetts photographer named Mark Chester.  Mr. Chester has captured a "mini United Nations" within the state through images of immigrants.  He has  been photographing immigrants for years, making it his mission to take pictures of two people from every nation in the world.  He is well on his way to completing his goal because since 2011, Mark has photographed people from 185 of the world's 196 countries, all of them immigrants who have settled in Massachusetts.  All of his subjects have become naturalized citizens and portions of his selections of more than 350 photos have been exhibited around the state, most recently at the State House.  He is now putting them into a book which he plans to distribute free to schools and libraries.  The project - called "The Bay State: A Multicultural Landscape: Photographs of New Americans" - has taken on new meaning in 2017.  The purpose of his exhibits are to enlighten, to educate, and to make people aware of residents from different countries.  His work offers a glimpse into the lives of immigrants who have embraced their new country, but have still retained some of the culture of their homelands.  Mr. Chester - who lives on Cape Cod - attends naturlization ceremonies and has even been known to ask cab drivers where they're from.  One of the project's sponsors is the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition as Mark's work helps capture the sense of optimism many immgrants have after they settle here.  For more information, go to http://www.markchesterphotography.com or contact Jean Hlady, Adult Services Librarian.  We encourage you to visit the library while the display is in place as it is culturally enriching and inspiring to see.

Tuesday Night at the Movies: Captain America - Civil War
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

 The most explosive clash to ever rock the Marvel cinematic Universe ignites a firestorm of conflict in the game-changing epic, "Captain America : Civil War."  In the wake of collateral damage, government pressure to rein in the Avengers drives a deep wedge between Captain American (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), causing a catastrophic rift that turns the two friends into bitter enemies.  Against a backdrop of divided loyalties, their fellow Avengers must deal with the fallout.  Pick a side in this spectacular adventure, packed with mind-blowing action and edge-of-your-seat suspense!  The movie is rated PG-13 for "extended sequences of violence, action and mayhem" and the running time is 147 minutes.  PLEASE NOTE SPECIAL START TIME OF 6 PM.    This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.
