Wotiz Gallery Exhibit with Photographer Paul Weiss

During the month of July, the library's Wotiz Gallery will host talented photographer Paul Weiss of Dorchester, MA who will display black and white pictures on a variety of topics, including portraits and design.  He is from North Carolina, attended college in the south and then studied photography at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, DC.  He then worked for Andy Warhol for several years, as the artist really admired Paul's portrait work.  His portfolio is primarily in black and white, and he uses analog (not digital) to create the images.  He develops and prints everything himself, and his images have been shown in numerous galleries, private collections, universities and museums.  It has also been displayed along side some of the masters he studied in college: Edward Weston, Weegee, Yousuf Karsh, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Mary Ellen mark to name a few.  Please come and enjoy this fine exhibit from June 29th through July 31st.

Surfin' Cinema: Weekend at Bernie's
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The second movie in our summer beach series will be shown today and it is "Weekend at Bernie's," which is described as "engagingly wacky and deliciously dark" comedy.  Brace yourself for a hectic and fun weekend filled with mayhem, misadventure...   and murder!  Hilarious performances by Andrew McCarthy and Jonathan Silverman make this fatally funny comedy a "good old knockdown slapstick with just the right dose of cruelty thrown in."  It sounded like a great weekend away at their boss Bernie's beachside pleasure palace, but when working stiffs Richard and Larry arrive to find a REAL stiff- their murdered boss - they're forced to concoct a crazy scheme to avoid being implicated and/or dead themselves!  With Bernie propped up and his death effectively covered up, Richard and Larry's weekend escape becomes exactly that, as they dodge curious babes, a curtain of bullets and one confused hit man!   The running time is 98 minutes and the rating is PG-13 for adult situations and language, so this movie is not suitable for young children.  Please come to the library for a cool and fun time at this afternoon event which promises lots of laughter.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

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.

Surfin' Cinema: Beach Blanket Bingo
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This afternoon there will be a free screening of the 1965 classic film "Beach Blanket Bingo" starring Frankie Avalon and Annette Funicello.  This sand-inspired party film was directed by William Asher, and it is the fifth and also best-known movie in the beach party film series produced by American International Pictures.  It also features Paul Lynde, Don Rickles and Buster Keaton.  A singer, Sugar Kane (Linda Evans), is unwittingly being used for publicity stunts for her latest album by her agent, for example, faking a skydiving stunt, actually performed by Bonnie.  Meanwhile, Frankie takes up skydiving at Bonnie's prompting; she secretly wants to make her boyfriend Steve jealous.  This of course prompts Dee Dee to also try free-falling.  Eric Von Zipper and his Malibu Rat Pack bikers also show up, with Von Zipper falling madly in love with Sugar Kane.  To top all this, Bonehead falls in love with a mermaid.  Eventually, Von Zipper "puts the snatch" on Sugar Kane.  Ths film takes a "Perils of Pauline"-like twist, with the evil South Dakota Slim (Timothy Carey) kidnapping Sugar and tying her to a buzz-saw.  It is not rated and the running time is 98 minutes. Come and enjoy a blast from the past with this fun and crazy movie, and enjoy the coolness of the library.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

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.

Tuesday Night at the Movies: A Small Good Thing
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

There will be a free showing this evening of a documentary called "A Small Good Thing"  (2016).  This is a feature documentary that tells the stories of people moving away from a philosophy of "more is better," toward a more holistic conception of well-being, one based on a close connection to themselves, the natural world, and to the greater good.  The film follows farmers, social work students, yoga teachers and others who share a deep desire to have more meaning in their lives, a closer bond with their families and communities, and a connection to themselves and the natural world.  These stories are deepened by some of our most visionary thinkers, including: Bill McKibben, author on climate change; Jeremy Rifkin on the future on energy; Stephen Cope, director of the Institute for Extraordinary Living at Kripalu; Dacher Keltner, positive psychology researcher; and Kristin Neff, a leading expert on self-compassion.   It is directed by filmmaker Pamela Tanner Boll and it is set in western Massachusetts in the Berkshires.  Please come see this wonderful film and find your own joy and inspiration!  The length is 72 minutes and it is not rated so is suitable for all ages.  This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milton Public Library.

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.

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.
