Where the Crawdads Sing (125 min)

For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So, in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life, until the unthinkable happens.

ONLINE: The Devil in New York: The Witchcraft Trial of Goody Garlick
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The most famous American witch-hunt began in 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts. Yet, more than three decades before that notorious event, Long Island had its very own witchcraft trial – the trial of Goody Garlick! Accusations of flying on poles and cavorting with the Devil ran rampant in the colonies during the 17th century and led to hundreds of accusations of witchcraft. To understand what happened during these trials, we must first understand the stresses of ordinary 17th century life in New York and why the fear of witches existed. The trial of Goody Garlick will act as a lens to understand the hysteria associated with these accusations. Presenter, Tara Rider, Ph.D.

ONLINE: Tales from the Temple of Ishtar
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Raymond Dowd will lecture on Dunnington’s landmark 2013 NY Court of Appeals victory in Matter of Flamenbaum for German museum recovering a golden Assyrian tablet, which was excavated from the Temple of Ishtar in 1913 by archeologist Walter Andrae. Raymond Dowd argued the case before the New York Court of Appeals.

The Assyrian tablet surfaced in 2003 in a decedent’s Nassau County, NY, safe deposit box. Flamenbaum is an historic landmark: clearly rejecting the spoils of war doctrine and reaffirming the common law rule that no one can take good title to property from a thief (and rejecting the Surrogate’s Court’s ruling that the museum’s claim was barred by the laches doctrine). Following the Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907 and the Kellogg-Briand Pact of 1928 outlawing wars of aggression, Flamenbaum’s logic removes the profit motive from war and genocide – even when criminal proceeds surface generations later. One of the more critical issues in archaeology concerns the subject of looting. How should this term be defined and how should an artifact or assortment of stolen cultural treasures be handled? Mr. Dowd will discuss the historical importance of the Flamenbaum gold tablet, its beauty and provenance, as well as the significance of court rulings in determining ownership of this highly contested masterpiece from the past, itself a victim to warfare.

Presented by East End Libraries and hosted by the Shelter Island Public Library. Any connection issues MUST be directed to them at 631-749-0042.

Chester is a 4.5-year-old Leonberger who loves to be with kids, is a great listener and hoping to help kids acquire a love of books and reading.  Reading to dogs in a calm, non-judgmental atmosphere can bolster children’s confidence  and encourage them to feel good about reading aloud in the classroom.  It can also help an older child become comfortable with school presentations or public speaking. Kids have a natural affinity toward our canine friends. Chester's presence is calm and reserved.  Reading in this environment without the anxiety of being judged can be very beneficial and exciting for our young ones.  Please call to register for one 10-minute session with Chester each day.

Chester is a 4.5-year-old Leonberger who loves to be with kids, is a great listener and hoping to help kids acquire a love of books and reading.  Reading to dogs in a calm, non-judgmental atmosphere can bolster children’s confidence  and encourage them to feel good about reading aloud in the classroom.  It can also help an older child become comfortable with school presentations or public speaking. Kids have a natural affinity toward our canine friends. Chester's presence is calm and reserved.  Reading in this environment without the anxiety of being judged can be very beneficial and exciting for our young ones.  Please call to register for one 10-minute session with Chester each day.
