Wotiz Gallery Exhibit with Bohemian Arts Boston

In honor of Black History Month, the work of a group called  "Bohemian Arts: Boston, Cambridge and Beyond" will be installed in the Wotiz Gallery.  The mission of Bohemian Arts is “to serve artists of all genres as a resource to collaborate, share information, build and bond.”  The organization “opens doors of opportunity to community artists to enable them to reach resources, select and guide them, to have more control of the way their art is exposed to art collectors, gallery owners, prospective buyers and lovers of art.”  The membership includes all genres: painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, music, spoken word, performers, fashion and design.  This display will feature several talented artists including Dr. Runoko Rashidi, an anthropologist and historian with a major focus on the “Global African Presence;” photographer Hakim Raquib of Panama and Boston; Gary Ames Rickson, who is a founding member of the African American Artist Association since 1962, and who is an excellent mural painter; Pamela Goncalves, who has been a major presence in the Greater Boston communities and has created award-winning art pieces since 2000; Akan David, who is a young painter who began creating art at age 13 and his works have gained favor in West African countries, now breaking into the global market; Kerrie Elaina Lloyd, who does ceramics, stained glass and painting, and is an instructor in these mediums, from San Pedro, CA and Mexico for 30 years; and Sister Releigh Cocoa Lady who is a native Bostonian and a sculptor, art instructor, and also a floral designer and party planner.  These fine artisans will bring the library a colorful and fun display of various types of artwork to help us all celebrate Black History Month.  There will be a free and open reception in the gallery on Monday evening, February 13th from 6-8 PM so please come meet the artists and enjoy this lovely exhibit.  This will be a collection of fine art, framed clay masks, photography, collages and graphic art.

Shakespeare Workshop with David Smith: The Tempest
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

One of the things that make Shakespeare great is his openness to multiple interpretations, and the often very different cinematic versions of the same play bring his elasticity vividly home to us.  In this second session of 2 this spring with David Smith, participants will begin with conversation about the issues raised in the chosen play and will then view excerpts from the films.  Further discussion will focus on how the directors have brought their special vision to the material.  Participants should read each play and be willing to share their ideas about it and about what they see on the screen.  To order a copy of the play, search the online catalog here on the website (www.miltonlibrary.org) or call the Library's Reference Department at (617) 698-5757, x.3. 

The play for today's discussion is  "The Tempest."

Discussion leader: David Smith was a secondary school English teacher for 50 years, the last 34 of which were at Milton Academy, where he taught courses in English and American Literature, Shakespeare, Literary Performance, and Non-Fiction Writing.    This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Tuesday Night at the Movies: Selma
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

From the Oscar winning producers of "12 Years A Slave" and acclaimed director Ava DuVernay comes the true story of courage and hope that changed the world forever with the wonderful film "Selma" in honor of Black History Month.  Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo shines as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who rallied his followers on the history march from Selma to Montgomery in the face of violent opposition, an event that became a milestone victory for the civil rights movement.  Also starring Oscar nominees Oprah Winfrey and Tom Wilkinson, "Selma" is the landmark achievement that critics called "one of the most powerful films of the year" (2014).  It is rated PG-13 for "disturbing thematic material including violence, a suggestive moment and brief strong language" and is not suitable for young children.  The running time is 128 minutes and this screening is free and open to the public.  "Tuesday Night at the Movies " is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

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.

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.

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 older kids 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.

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.

Digital Photography and Video with Your Smart Device
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Do you have a Smart Device and not sure how to use it to shoot photos and more?  Have a bunch of photos on your phone that you're not sure what to do with?  Why and how we take photos -- and the type of phone we use -- can affect how we choose to edit and store them.  And whether you plan to print, create digital slideshows, publish photo books, or post to social media, you'll need to back up and organize your photos.  Each student will leave class with a personal photo management plan.  This class will be taught by Bob Michelson of Photography by Michelson, Inc. based in Braintree, MA.  He is a published underwater photographer/videographer, naturalist, and PADI Project AWARE Fish I.D.  His work has appeared in numerous magazines and museums.  Bob offers workshops and seminars on a variety of subjects related to the ocean, fish habits and underwater photography to schools, corporations, clubs, and private organizations across the northeast.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is free and open to the public.
