Wotiz Gallery Display by Painter Vincent Crotty

During the month of August, talented local painter and Irish native Vincent Crotty will display his work in our Wotiz Gallery.  Mr. Crotty - a visual artist - paints figures and landscapes from life and in the studio.  His work spans a wide range of topics,  from the back streets of his hometown in Ireland to the back porches of his Dorchester three-decker neighborhood. He got his start as a sign painter in his native country, and further developed his skills through studies and his intense work ethic, to become the accomplished artist we will see in this exhibit.  Please join us for a lovely exhibit which runs through August 31st.

Readers' Theatre Club
2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Readers' Theatre is a a type of drama performed by "readers" who read from a script and do not have to memorize lines.  Performed with minimal costumes, sets and props, readers' theatre can be not only a great introduction to theatre for kids, but it's also a great way to practice one's oral reading skills, build confidence, and have fun with friends at the same time!

This summer, Miss Sara is leading a Readers' Theatre Club for students entering grades 2-4.  Each week participants will play theatre games, tackle different scripts based on well-known children's books, and make crafts to supplement the stories we're telling together.  The Club will meet five times over the course of the summer, and each meeting will culminate with a performance for family and friends.  While this is a drop-off program, parents/caregivers are asked to return 15 minutes before the end of each class (at 3:45) so they can see the show!

Students must be fluent readers who have completed first grade.  Registration is required and will open two weeks before the event.

Wotiz Gallery Display of Workers' Struggles Posters

Union advocate Stephen Lewis will display a collection of his international "Workers' Struggles" posters in the Wotiz Gallery.  Organizations in many countries use posters as a way to communicate ideas and messages to their audience.  Workers everywhere struggle regularly to keep more of the value of what their work has created, to receive adequate benefits and to have good and safe working conditions.  This is not easy.  Many workers around the world face repression when they try to improve their work lives.  This poster exhibit reflects some of the history of those struggles.  For more details, please take a handout from the exhibit after September lst.  The posters are from a collection of more than 6800 of Stephen Lewis.  He is a long-time activist in the labor movement, and the former Treasurer of his union.  Stephen has exhibited at a number of public libraries in Massachusetts and two of the state Heritage parks.  He has presented at the annual conference of the National Council on Public History, and on some cable television programs.  He can be reached by Email at lewisposters@gmail.com or at Facebook under labor/progressive political posters.  The posters/photos were contributed by friends, collected at conferences, visits to some of the organizations, and from connections made through the internet.  This program is supported in part by a grant from the Milton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency, and by IBEW Local 103, Roofers Local 33, and Asbestos Workers Local 6.  Please come and view this interesting display during September.

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

Tonight there will be a free screening of the wonderful Academy Award nominated film "Lion."    Five-year old Saroo (Sunny Pawar) gets lost on a train traveling away from his home and family.  Frightened and bewildered, he ends up thousands of miles away, in chaotic Kolkata.  Somehow he survives living on the streets, escaping all sorts of terrors and close calls in the process, before ending up in an orphanage that is itself not exactly a safe haven.  Eventually Saroo is adopted by an Australian couple (Nicole Kidman and David Wenham) and finds love and secuirty as he grows up in Hobart.  As an adult, not wanting to hurt his adoptive parents' feelings, Saroo (Dev Patel) suppresses his past, his emotinoal need for reunification and his hope of ever finding his lost mother and brother.  But a chance meeting with some fellow Indians reawakens his buried yearning.  Armed with only a handful of memories, his unwavering determination, and a revolutionary technology known as Google Earth, Saroo sets out to find his lost family and finally return to his first home.  This movie is 118 minutes in length and is rated PG-13 for "thematic material and some sensuality." Please join us for this incredible true story if you have not yet seen "Lion."   This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Master of Wine Bill Nesto and Frances DiSavino return to the Milton Public Library to present their new book: Chianti Classico:  The Search for Tuscany's Noblest Wine (Unversity of California Press, 2016).  The authors explore the townships of Chianti Classico and introduce readers to the modern-day winegrowers who are helping to transform the region.  The secrets of Sangiovese, the principal vine variety of Chianti, are also revealed as the book unlocks the myths and mysteries of one of Italy's most storied wine regions.  The book has been awarded the 2017 Special Mention Award in the "Monographs" category by the Jury of the prestigious International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV), headquartered in Paris, France.  According to the OIV, the OIV Jury “rewards the best works published over the past two previous years which provide an original and relevant contribution, with an international significance for the vine and wine sector”.  This year there were 65 works in competition, with 19 countries represented.  Nesto and DiSavino are the only American authors to win an award in this year’s competition.

Film Showing: The Finest Hours
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

There will be a free showing of the film "The Finest Hours" this evening.  Based on the extraordinary true story of the greatest small-boat rescue in Coast Guard history, this is a tale of courage, loyalty and honor in the face of overwhelming odds.  When a massive storm strikes off the coast of Cape Cod, it rips a T-2 oil tanker in half, trapping more than 30 sailors on its rapidly sinking stern, Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine) and his crew set out in a 12-seat rescue boat to save them,  as Chief Engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) struggles to buy his men more time.  Packed with heroic larger-than-life action and driven by the men's faith in their mission, themselves and one another,  "The Finest Hours" is a triumph.  It is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of peril and may not be suitable for children, and the running time is 117 minutes.  We are showing this at the library in honor of the author, Michael Tougias, who will be speaking at the Milton Public Library Foundation gala which will be held in the Fall.  Please join us if you have not seen this great film!    And for more details, go to our website at www.miltonlibrary.org.

Inferno, an author talk by Dr. Steven Hatch
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Meet Dr. Steven Hatch, author of Inferno:  A Doctor's Ebola Story.

Dr. Steven Hatch, an infectious disease specialist, first came to Liberia in November 2013 to work at a hospital in Monrovia. Six months later, several of the physicians he had served with were dead or unable to work, and Ebola had become a world health emergency. Inferno is his account of the epidemic that nearly consumed a nation, as well as its deeper origins.

Hatch returned with the aid organization International Medical Corps to help establish an Ebola Treatment Unit. Alongside a devoted staff of expats and Liberians in a hastily constructed facility nestled into the jungle, Hatch witnessed the unit's physicians, nurses, other caregivers, and patients selflessly helping others, preserving hope in the face of fear, and maintaining dignity across the divide of health and illness. And, over repeated visits during the course of the outbreak, Hatch came to understand the Ebola catastrophe not only as a contagious virus but as a product of Liberia's violent history and America's role in it.

Powerful and clear-eyed, Inferno not only explores a deadly virus and an afflicted country, but also reveals how the Ebola outbreak stoked nativist anxieties that were exploited for political gain in the United States and around the world. In telling one doctor's story, Inferno demonstrates how generations of inequality left Liberia vulnerable to crisis, and how similar circumstances might fuel another plague elsewhere. By understanding and alleviating those circumstances, Hatch writes, we may help smother the fire next time.

A book signing will follow Dr. Hatch's talk.

Tuesday Night at the Movies: Sense the Wind
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

There will be a free screening tonight of a documentary called "Sense the Wind."  Blind sailors race across open water learning not to fear what they cannot see, on boats or on land.  Life turns unpredictable as the wind when one of them gains something far more valuable than a trophy and msut learn to live and to sail with a new sensibility.  "Sense the Wind" is a journey led by four blind sailors - Matt, Nancy, Philip and Inky as they train and compete at the U.S. Blind Nationals and press towards the Blind Sailing Worlds in Japan.  They compete despite the risk of a falling boom, a boat collision or falling overboard.  On the water, teamwork and intuition take over.  Disabilities are no longer the focus.  Between regattas, life takes a turn when one of them gains more than a trophy and must learn to live and sail with a new sensibility.  The film has been made in close collaboration with our four principle characters and numerous sailors, along with input from our advisers in the adapative sports, disability communities.   Please come and experience this unique story. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

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.
