elect_camera.png Art Exhibit: Effigy: Ghosts of Asbury Park Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact:    1-866-941-8188   
   

Photographs by Joseph Meacham on exhibit all month.

From the Artist:  "I grew up several miles south [of Asbury Park] in a middle class suburban beach community.  Just a twenty minute bus ride from my home, Asbury Park was the innocent arcade of my 1950s childhood and the raucous hub of music and surfing of my 60s adolescence.  It was a social landscape I associated with excitement, independence and freedom.  All that changed in the mid 1970s. 

"By 1974, Asbury Park, scarred by race riots and economic distress, was slowly crumbling into oblivion, taking the ghosts of its past with it.  The amusement park rides and boardwalk attractions were still there, but the life energy of this once vibrant beach town was gone and the future was growing darker. 

"Effigy: Ghosts of Asbury Park" is my reflection on those times and what became of this place.  It's a historic record and a personal metaphor, colored now by the patina of time.  Although the imagery is a mixture of nostalgia and sadness, I choose to think of it as the falling leaves that have served as the fertilizer for the renaissance of Asbury Park today."

Music from Scotland and Ireland

One of Scotland’s best known harp players, William Jackson from Glasgow, will present a multi-faceted concert of traditional Scottish music as well as his own compositions on Celtic harp and Scottish small pipes.

William Jackson was one of the founding members of the Scottish super group, Ossian, in the late 70s, which had an enormous influence on the sound of traditional Scottish music. He made the Scottish harp, or clarsach, one of the cornerstone’s of the band’s arrangements with bagpipes, strong rhythm guitar and fiddle. He recorded seven albums with Ossian and has subsequently recorded ten solo CDs. He and Ossian were inducted into Scotland's Traditional Music Hall of Fame in 2015 and he received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Somerset Folk Harp Festival in 2016.

Mr. Jackson has gained a substantial reputation as a composer, known for combining traditional and classical music, with such major works as The Wellpark Suite, St. Mungo, Inchcolm, and A Scottish Island to his credit. In 1999 his composition 'Corryvreckan' from the album Inchcolm was included on Fiona Ritchie's favorites collection, "The Best of The Thistle & Shamrock, Volume 1." His “Land of Light” composition won the international Song for Scotland competition in 1999, was widely acclaimed and performed for the opening of Scotland’s first parliament in 300 years. Additionally he has done scores and performances for a number of BBC programs, the History Channel and films.

    Contact:    1-866-941-8188   
   

"Harvest of Despair: The Man-made Famine of 1932-33 in Ukraine" documents the Ukrainian terror famine of 1932-33 that caused the death of seven million people in Ukraine.  Using interviews with survivors and scholars to supplement rare photographic evidence, it established that the terror famine was deliberately created by the Soviet Government as part of Stalin's decades-long effort to destroy the widespread Ukrainian resistance to Moscow's policies of collectivization and cultural destruction in Ukraine.  A powerful film, "Harvest of Despair" provides rare insight into one of the 20th century's least-known but most vicious genocides. 

The program will include an introduction of the film by Dr. Yuri Mischenko, a reading of the Recollections of Holodomor Survivor Nina Pinczuk Kowbasniuk, and a Q&A at the end of the film.

"Harvest of Despair: The Man-made Famine of 1932-33 in Ukraine" (55 minutes) is Directed by Slavko Nowytski, (c)1983, International Historic Films, Inc.

Presented by the Ukrainian National Women's League of America, Branch 98.

Hortensia James and Marion Agostino are neighbors. One is black, the other white. Both are successful women with impressive careers. Both have recently been widowed, and are living with questions, disappointments, and secrets that have brought them shame. And each has something that the woman next door deeply desires.

Sworn enemies, the two share a hedge and a deliberate hostility, which they maintain with a zeal that belies their age. But, one day, an unexpected event forces Hortensia and Marion together. As the physical barriers between them collapse, their bickering gradually softens into conversation and, gradually, the two discover common ground. But are these sparks of connection enough to ignite a friendship, or is it too late to expect these women to change?

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

Hortensia James and Marion Agostino are neighbors. One is black, the other white. Both are successful women with impressive careers. Both have recently been widowed, and are living with questions, disappointments, and secrets that have brought them shame. And each has something that the woman next door deeply desires.

Sworn enemies, the two share a hedge and a deliberate hostility, which they maintain with a zeal that belies their age. But, one day, an unexpected event forces Hortensia and Marion together. As the physical barriers between them collapse, their bickering gradually softens into conversation and, gradually, the two discover common ground. But are these sparks of connection enough to ignite a friendship, or is it too late to expect these women to change?

This book discussion will be moderated by Colts Neck Librarian Stephanie Laurino. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend, however registration is preferred. Stop by or call the library to reserve your copy of the book today.

Emily Warren Roebling and the Brooklyn Bridge 

Many books and films have featured the Brooklyn Bridge and millions of people have crossed it. Built between 1869 and 1883, without modern machines or even electric light, it was one of the most amazing technological achievements of its time. Yet few people know that a woman helped manage much of its construction.  After her husband was bedridden, Emily Roebling became his liaison to the project – eventually communicating with the engineers and suppliers so well that it was rumored that she had become the Chief Engineer herself! Later she helped design the family mansion in Trenton, studied law, organized relief for returning troops from the Spanish American War, attended the coronation of the Tsar of Russia and even took tea with Queen Victoria. At her death, she was called “the most famous woman in New Jersey” and “one of the most noted women in the country,” yet today almost no one knows her name!

Join us for this presentation of a remarkable woman, whom history forgot with a spellbinding impersonation by Carol Simon Levin.  Carol is a retired librarian, author, storyteller and program presenter based in Bedminster N.J. and history enthusiast.

Space is limited, register in-person, by phone, or online.

Before they met, both had believed they were done with marriage, and even after they married, Joyce resolved that no one could alter her course of determined independence. Charting the course through their whirlwind romance, a marriage cut short by tragedy, and Joyce's return to living alone on new terms, The Best of Us is a heart-wrenching, ultimately life-affirming reflection on coming to understand true love through the experience of great loss.

The World War II Era Studies Institute and The Monmouth County Library System presents a continuing series of programs to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of America at War, 1944. 

The Battle of the Atlantic was one of the crucial turning point battles of World War II which had to be won; the battle lasted over a year and a half. Dominating the Atlantic was Nazi Germany’s Kriegsmarine and its U-boat wolf packs until the Allies adopted critical methods to countering them all. Come hear all about this important battle, which upon attaining victory, enabled the Allies to conduct Operation Overlord: the invasion of North West France on June 6, 1944.

When she was in her late fifties, author and journalist Joyce Maynard met the first true partner she had ever known. Before they met, both had believed they were done with marriage, and even after they married, Joyce resolved that no one could alter her course of determined independence. Charting the course through their whirlwind romance, a marriage cut short by tragedy, and Joyce's return to living alone on new terms, The Best of Us is a heart-wrenching, ultimately life-affirming reflection on coming to understand true love through the experience of great loss.

Join us as Martin M. Mosho presents this important educational lecture on the Civil War. The Lost Cause is an interpretation of the American Civil War that seeks to present the war, from the perspective of Confederates, in the best possible terms. Many historians have labeled the Lost Cause a myth or a legend. It is certainly an important example of public memory, one in which nostalgia for the Confederate past is accompanied by a collective forgetting of the horrors of slavery. 
 
Mr. Mosho is a Civil War expert who has studied the war for over 50 years and toured many of the famous battlefields. He is also a prominent member of the Civil War Society and a retired instructor of Mercy County Community College.

Billy Joel is a 6-time Grammy Award winner, has sold over 100 million records and is in both the Songwriters and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame. 52nd Street offers the best of Billy Joel, covering his entire career from the 70's, 80's and 90's.

52nd Street is the longest running Billy Joel tribute band in the world, which is led by the talented pianist and showman Dan Vechesky (Danny V) and includes some of the area's best musicians. 52nd Street does a spot on re-creation of Billy's live show. 52nd Street has toured both nationally and regionally, becoming one of the top tribute bands in the NE region and the ultimate tribute to Mr. Joel's music and stage show.

Thanks to the Friends of the Monmouth County Library for co-sponsoring this concert and for underwriting the maintenance of the Library's Concert Grand Piano.

Entrance doors open at 12:30pm. Seats are available on a first come, first-served basis.  We request that participants do not hold or reserve seats for others. Library staff reserves a number of seats for a limited time for family/friends of performers.

The Wright Brothers by David McCullough

Pulitzer Prize–winning author David McCullough turns his focus to the family responsible for the beginning of the aviation industry in the United States.  The book traces the brothers’ transition from building and selling bicycles in Dayton, Ohio to constructing, testing, and refining aircraft in the skies over the dunes of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.  It is an American story of ingenuity, vision, and tenacity.
