Wotiz Gallery Exhibit of Photography by Barbara Newman
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

This month there will be a photography exhibit on display in the Wotiz Gallery by Quincy resident Barbara Newman. These beautiful color landscapes were mostly taken at night and cover a very wide geographic area, which includes many fascinating places around the world.  This is what the photographer says about her work: “As the world around us gets more crowded and noisy, I find myself drawn to photographing the beautiful and peaceful landscape that surrounds us.  Spending hours with my camera and tripod photographing the Northern Lights, Milky Way, or a sunrise, never ceases to inspire me.  I hope it does the same for those who come to see the photographs.”  Ms. Newman has also exhibited at the Thomas Crane Library in Quincy, at the Harvard Science Center Atrium in Cambridge, the Harvard Graduate School of Education in Cambridge, and more.  She has spent most of her life taking art classes, working with crafts and taking travel photographs.  She switched from Film to Digital photography and this transition really came together for her on a trip to Iceland to photograph the Northern Lights.  This was a magical experience and she wants to keep that feeling of magic alive.  She continues to take pictures also at National Parks like Arches National Park in Utah or the simplicity of the fog along the Oregon coast.  To see more of her work, go to her website: https://barbaranewman.smugmug.com/    There will be a free and open reception for this display on Thursday evening, January 17th from 6-8 PM in the Gallery where you can meet the artist and view her lovely work.

57 Balloons: An Author Talk by Kevin Walsh
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Milton author Kevin Walsh will give a talk this evening about his new book called 57 Balloons.  His story happened in 1984 when he was 24 years old.  At the time, he was a licensed parachute rigger who fastened himself to 57 helium-filled balloons and soared one mile into the sky at dawn on New Year’s Day.  He says he took the unusual flight to celebrate his gratitude for living in a free world.  He went aloft at Minuteman Airfield in Stow, MA to call attention to the positive aspects of living in 1984 – a year described in foreboding terms in George Orwell’s novel by the same name.

Walsh said he and 9 friends stayed up all night that New Year’s Eve, attaching the nine tiers of five to seven helium-filled water balloons to create the craft.  Walsh, who graduated from Boston College High School and Bowdoin College with a major in Spanish, said he had two messages to deliver.  One was that life is not as dismal as in Orwell’s famous book and the other is that we hope it doesn’t get that way.  There was a Federal Aviation Administration investigation which followed, but instead of telling you the whole story, we will let Mr. Walsh do so!  Please come and join us at this fascinating program, where his books will also be available for sale.  This event is kindly sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library and is appropriate for all ages.

Wotiz Gallery Exhibit by Painter Donna Elliott

During the month of February, Milton resident and talented painter Donna Elliott will exhibit her colorful and very cool paintings in the Wotiz Gallery.  She is a self-taught artist and her work is quite unusual and unique, modern and graphical, with bold and vibrant hues.  This is what she says about her paintings: "Painting takes me away from the everyday....and helps me to see and share the beauty of who we are and why we are here.  I am spirtually connected to my creator, with true passion for life and humanity.  My paintings are motivating, inspiring, spiritually reviving, relaxing and fun.  Each [piece] with brilliant bold colors tells its own story.  Within each painting, the viewer can see hidden stories, objects, and faces from different angles...   This is my Divine Expression." For more information about Donna's art, check out her website which is ddivineexpression.com and please stop by on Thursday, Feb. 7th between 6 and 8 PM to view her work and meet the artist in person.  This is a free and open event in the gallery.  You will really enjoy this great exhibit!

El Deafo?  If your kid likes graphic novels—or any kind of comics—they’ll probably love our Comikidz Club.  Comikidz is for grades 3-5, who like to read and talk about or draw sequential art.  Each meeting includes free time for the kids to draw.

Shakespeare on Film
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
David Smith returns to the Library for his very popular Shakespeare on Film event.  This year the featured play is Richard III.
Here's how it works: David selects the play, you pick up a copy at the Library, (or order it online through the Library's catalog), read it before the session on February 10, then share your thoughts and hear others do the same. The session is complete by watching several depictions of the play presented on film.  It's always amazing to see how each director creates their own version of the same play based on their perspective. 
Don't miss this unique and truly entertaining event!

Eclectic Book Group with Will: Only Killers and Thieves by Howarth
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Library Director Will Adamczyk will hold his "Eclectic Book Group" this evening.  The book to be read in advance is Only Killers and Thieves by Paul Howarth (c2018).   An epic tale of revenge and survival, this work of fiction is a gripping and utterly transporting debut, bringing to vivid life a colonial Australia that bears a striking resemblance to the American Wild West in its formative years.  It is 1885 and a crippling drought threatens to ruin the McBride family.  Their land is parched, their cattle starving.  When the rain finally comes, it is a miracle that renews their hope for survival.  But returning home from an afternoon swimming at a remote waterhole filled by the downpour, 14-year-old Tommy and 16-year-old Billy meet with a shocking tragedy.  Thirsting for vengeance against the man they believe has wronged them - their former Aboriginal stockman - the distraught brothers turn to the ruthless and cunning John Sullivan, the wealthiest landowner in the region and their father's former employer.  Two brothers are exposed to the brutal realities of life and the seductive cruelty of power in a riveting debut novel - a story of savagery and race, injustice and honor/  It is reminiscent of Philipp Meyer's The Son and the novels of Cormac McCarthy.  Please join Will for an interesting discussion about a hard-to-put-down read.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

Wotiz Gallery Exhibit by Painter Kira Seamon

During the month of March, Dedham artist Kira Seamon will display her paintings in the Wotiz Gallery.  Pursuing her passion for visual art with a cell phone, Kira transforms scenes of New England foliage into brilliant images of dazzling beauty.  The award-winning ballet dancer turned photographer attaches a kaleidoscopic lens to her cell phone to "recombine pictures of branches, leaves and flowers into fascinating shapes and colors reminiscent of stained glass."  In Seamon's widely traveling exhibit, "Stained Glass Sky," previously displayed at several other Massachusetts libraries, her 40 photos are like Rorschach ink blots that inflame viewers' imiaginations.  Viewed through her kaleidoscopic lens, a winterberry bush seems ablaze with patterns of incandescent colors suggestive of Impressionist landscapes.  In another, the branches and leaves of a Norway maple tree are duplicated in symmetrical patterns of vivid oranges and yellows.  As photographed by Seamon, the buds and blades of a bearded iris are reflected in a symmetrical mosaic of delicate botanical anatomy.  Kira spent more than 20 years as a ballet dancer and choreographer, earning national and international awards, and she produced and directed productions including her world permiere of "The Tell-Tale Heart" at the Boston Center for the Arts.  She joined her family, who had moved to Dedham, in 1998 to pursue her varied artistic interests.  "I felt an aching need to be a visual artist," she said.  She has taught herself to use "backlit sunlight" to capture colors that "often aren't seen with the naked eye."  She stressed her photos' radiant colors have not been enhanced or manipulated by computer.  "Sunlight brings out beautiful colors people don't usually see," she said.  "Mother Nature does the best Photoshop."  With her striking photos, Seamon has brought that invention alive in new ways.  Check back here for more details about this exhibit soon, and please do not miss stopping by the Library in March to enjoy this very unique display!

Calling all Cooks!  The Milton Public Library Cookbook Club, led by local chef Connie Spiros and Assistant Director Sara Truog, invites you to its next session on Monday, March 25 from 6:30-7:30pm.  Each club meeting will feature a selected cookbook, and members will prepare a tasty treat from the book to bring to the Library and share.  The cookbook chosen for March is TBA.

In order to participate, please take these simple steps:

  • Please register through the library events calendar. Only registered cooks will be able to attend.
  • Borrow a copy of the book from the library and choose a dish. Books are available at the Circulation Desk one month ahead. (If you borrow a cookbook but won't be able to attend the meeting, please return the cookbook so someone else can check it out. Thank you!)
  • Once you've chosen your recipe, contact Sara by email (struog@ocln.org) or phone (617-898-4951) to let her know what recipe you’ll be trying so we don't have a lot of duplication in the dishes we'll sample on meeting night!

Space is limited and advance registration is required. Registration will open on Monday, March 4. Once you register you will receive more details about the club.  Bon Appetit!
