Music Through the Decades
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

MUSIC THROUGH THE DECADES

Recently The Norman Rockwell Museum commissioned David Polansky to develop “Music Through The Decades”, a fun filled hour in which the audience learns how the last hundred-plus years of American and world history have inspired so many of the songs we love. Using keyboard, trumpet, and vocals, David presents the music of George M. Cohan, Fats Waller, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, and a host of others - music inspired by the advent of the automobile, the two world wars, the Roaring 20’s, the great depression, the wild west, and much more. David engages the audience, taking questions, performing requests, and telling very funny anecdotes about famous musicians as well as some about his own life as a musician. David even has a Louis Armstrong impersonation that is so authentic that he’s often asked “Was that a recording?”. A career musician, David has played with Sandler and Young, Phyllis Diller, Henny Youngman, Ray Bolger, Arthur Fiedler, The Platters, The Coasters....The list goes on and on. This program is a real winner that very often ends with a standing ovation. Don?t miss it.

Comic Book Club
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Incognegro by Mat JohnsonThis month the Library Comic Book Comic will read and discuss Incognegro by Mat Johnson. In the early 20th century, when lynchings were commonplace throughout the American South, a few courageous reporters from the North risked their lives to expose these atrocities. They were African-American men who, due to their light skin color, could pass for white. They called this dangerous assignment going "incognegro." Zane Pinchback is sent to investigate the arrest of his own brother, charged with the brutal murder of a white woman in Mississippi. With a lynch mob already swarming, Zane must stay "incognegro" long enough to uncover the truth behind the murder in order to save his brother - and himself.

Copies of this month's title will be available at the main desk. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Dave Bartos at 508-647-6521.

Until a young American barges in uttering a name Eve hasn’t heard in decades, and launches them both on a mission to find the truth…no matter where it leads.

Comic Book Club
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

The Adventures of Superhero Girl by Faith Erin HicksThis month the Library Comic Book Comic will read and discuss The Adventures of Superhero Girl by Faith Erin Hicks. This charming modern vision of a Superhero Girl features a young woman living an uncertain life, unsure of the best way to contribute to society. It's superhero as person instead of as corporate symbol or fight machine. We see her struggling with relatable elements of daily life, like keeping her mother informed of how things are going or having to replace her cape after it shrunk in the laundry.

Copies of this month's title will be available at the main desk. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Dave Bartos at 508-647-6521.

Comic Book Club
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth by Chris WareThis month the Library Comic Book Comic will read and discuss Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth by Chris Ware. An improvisatory romance which gingerly deports itself between 1890's Chicago and 1980's small town Michigan, the reader is helped along by thousands of colored illustrations and diagrams, which, when read rapidly in sequence, provide a convincing illusion of life and movement. The bulk of the work is supported by fold-out instructions, an index, paper cut-outs, and a brief apology, all of which concrete to form a rich portrait of a man stunted by a paralyzing fear of being disliked.

Copies of this month's title will be available at the main desk. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Dave Bartos at 508-647-6521.

Comic Book Club
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

French Milk by Lucy KinsleyThis month the Library Comic Book Comic will read and discuss French Milk by Lucy Knisley. Through delightful drawings, photographs, and musings, twenty-three-year-old Lucy Knisley documents a six-week trip she and her mother took to Paris when each was facing a milestone birthday. With a quirky flat in the fifth arrondissement as their home base, they set out to explore all the city has to offer. What results is not only a sweet and savory journey through the City of Light but a moving, personal look at a mother-daughter relationship.

Copies of this month's title will be available at the main desk. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact Dave Bartos at 508-647-6521.
