elect_camera.png Art Display: Mei-ism: The Eclectic Lens of Mae-Lin Tang Remind Me about this Event 3 Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact:    732-683-8980   Mcl@monmouthcountylib.org
   

Photographer Mae-Lin Tang is a Monmouth County native and local who does photography as a personal hobby.  After purchasing her camera in 2017 for a trip to London, the rest is history.  Mae-Lin is a beloved staff member of Monmouth County Library.

Most of Mae-Lin's photography centers around: 

  • Food - either her cooking or other delicious things
  • Nature - from her garden, local nature, or parks/gardens
  • Still Life - the house life, daytime adventures, attending things and events
  • Hummingbirds - quick visitors obsessed with sugar water
  • Animals - only when she's able to grab her camera in time before they run away

All of the photographs in the exhibit were taken with a Sony Alpha A6000 at the opportune moments, edited in Adobe Lightroom.  The favored lenses are the Sigma 56mm/f/1.4 prime lens, and the Sony E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 lens.  

More photography and other pictures can be viewed on her Instagram  @Littledragonmeiling

The exhibit is on display in the Eastern Branch's  Library Lobby display cases through January 30th.

    Contact: Reference Staff   732 431 7220ext7222   
   

Raconteur Radio Presents THE HOBBIT: A Virtual Radio Play -

"attend" this theatrical performance by clicking on the link on our webpage: MonmouthCountyLib.org 

One day, in the early 1930s, the English philologist and university professor, J.R.R. Tolkien, found a blank page and, suddenly inspired, wrote the words, "In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit." And so began one of the world's most beloved books. This fireside performance features Jane Smith as furry-footed filcher Bilbo Baggins; Michael Jarmus as wandering wizard Gandalf the Gray, ring-corrupted river hobbit Gollum the Green, and fearsome fire drake Smaug the Golden: and Alex Dawson as dwarf doyen ThorinOakenshield, son of Thrain, and assorted other characters (plus sound effects).

Innovative and entertaining, RACONTEUR RADIO performs theatrical presentations of vintage radio plays, classic works of literature, and pop culture parodies for audiences throughout the Tri-State area. For the foreseeable future, their live presentations will be presented virtually. The radio plays are being recorded via a video meeting platform, and then shared before a real time Q&A with Raconteur Radio founder/artistic director Alex Dawson.

Register to MEET DIRECTOR ALEX DAWSON on Wednesday, January 27, 6:30pm (VIA ZOOM)

Transcription by Kate Atkinson

In 1940, Juliet Armstrong is sent to an obscure department of MI5 tasked with monitoring the comings and goings of British Fascist sympathizers. Ten years later, now a radio producer at the BBC, Juliet is unexpectedly confronted by figures from her past. A bill of reckoning is due, and she finally begins to realize that there is no action without consequence.

Power of African American Stories in the Art of Bisa Butler

Presented by Historian & Cultural Activist Thelma Armstrong; Moderated by Andrea McPherson

Using a LIVE virtual presentation medium, Ms. Armstrong will share images and discuss the works of Artist Bisa Butler. While African American artists have been telling powerful stories through their art, both in Black Culture as well as in the dominant culture, there is still a vacuum of dislocation to the pre-slavery past. In the world of art, overflowing with a myriad of artistic expressions, many wonder what else can be added to the canon to create something new, different, uniquely designed to speak to the African Diaspora? Ms. Armstrong will present how Bisa Butler found an artistic method to salve the fractures of loss and also inspire emotional depth through connectedness. 
 
Bisa Butler is an American artist known for celebrating black life through her portraits and designs. Her art has been exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum of American History, the Epcot Center, and the National Underground Railroad Center, to name a few.
 
Thelma Armstrong is a Scholar and Cultural Activist who is passionate about the "lived lives" of members of diverse communities. She received her MA in Historical Studies in 2008. Eighteenth Century Women's History became her focus, with a specific emphasis on women of color.
 
Andrea McPherson is the Vice President and Portfolio Director of Financial Crimes & Fraud Management at TD Bank, the co-creator of the Manalapan-Englishtown Middle School steel drum band The Manala-PANS, and a member of the Manalapan Arts Council.

A story of female friendship and family secrets set on a small Korean island. The Island of Sea Women begins during a period of Japanese colonialism in the 1930s and 40s, followed by World War II, the Korean War and its aftermath, through the era of cell phones and wet suits for women divers. Throughout this time, the residents of Jeju find themselves caught between warring empires in this beautiful, thoughtful novel that illuminates a world turned upside down, one where the women are in charge, engaging in dangerous physical work.

For years, Deni has been honing her craft as a violinist, singer, songwriter and performer. She is, simply, the whole musical package. Her style ranges from pop to roots-rock, to new folk. 

On a personal mission to prove that there is more to the violin than concertos and hoedowns, Deni has become an in-demand act from headlining at performing arts centers & festivals, to Carnegie Hall and The United Nations; from singing and performing at colleges and clubs, to the White House for President and Michele Obama and then Vice-President Biden.

As with all good artists, Deni has grown to show a broader and more expansive scope. Deni will share her talents as a musician and composer to an even higher plane during this Live “Love, Deni” Concert.

Recording of this concert in any manner is strictly prohibited; this performance is protected by copyright law.

Internet access is required to attend. The concert will be rebroadcast throughout February, also available through the Library's webpage: MonmouthCountyLib.org

Virtual Book Discussion: Who Tells Your Story? In Honor of Black History Month with Author Eric K. Washington 


The Boss of the Grips: The Life of James H. Williams and the Red Caps of Grand Central Terminal

Meet author Eric K. Washington, as he discusses his book, Boss of Grips, a feat of remarkable research and timely reclamation, in which he uncovers the nearly forgotten life of James H. Williams, the chief porter of Grand Central Terminal's Red Caps—a multitude of Harlem-based black men whom he organized into the essential labor force of America's most august railroad station. Examining the deeply intertwined subjects of class, labor, and African American history, Washington chronicles Williams's life, showing how the enterprising son of freed slaves successfully navigated the segregated world of the northern metropolis, and in so doing ultimately achieved financial and social influence.

Meet Jonathan Schilling, award winning Author of Super Bomb: Organizational Conflict and the Development of the Hydrogen Bomb  originally authored  by Ken Young and Warren R. Schilling 

Join us to sit down with published software engineer Jonathan Schilling, as he discusses his late father Professor Warren R. Schilling and late Professor Ken Young’s book Super Bomb. unveils  of the events leading up to President Harry S. Truman’s 1950 decision to develop a “super” hydrogen bomb, and the complete account of its aftermath and consequences; the unfinished project Jonathan undertook to finish for them.

Warren R. Schilling conducted interviews with all the major participants in the 1950 H-bomb decision. In the last months of Warren’s life, he expressed his disappointment over the unfinished writings that were supposed to culminate into a book. After Warren passed away in 2013, Jonathan contacted Professor Ken Young to help him complete the work, one that would include Young’s additional research and Warren’s outlined ideas.

Very sadly, Ken passed away in early 2019, before finishing a draft. Jonathan once again stepped up and took over the project, working intensively during much of 2019, which included visits to our local libraries (between Headquarters and Extension, he found an abundant of resources).

Now he represented not one, but two scholars who were gone, and Jonathan was determined that the book be the best reflection of their thoughts and research, with the final publication in February 2020.

The late Ken Young was Professor of Public Policy at King's College London and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. 
The late Warner R. Schilling was the James T. Shotwell Professor of International Relations at Columbia University where he taught for six decades and served as director of the Institute of War and Peace Studies.

    Contact: Teen Programming     mclteen@monmouthcountylib.org
   

An ongoing event, A Day in the Life of a Quaranteen asks for a written documentary of your life during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Entries can be essays, poems, journal entries, or written song describing your life, thoughts, and feelings about COVID-19. One to two submissions will be displayed in our quarterly teen newsletter.  One volunteer hour is possible per article for participants. Your article will need to be approved by a library staff member before you will be given service hours.  Articles need to follow the guidelines to be approved, and may be sent back to you if anything is missing.  

Age: Must be between grades 7-12

Library Card: Must have a valid Monmouth County Library Card. 

Service Hours Given: 1 hour per article submission upon library approval. 

Limit of two submissions per person. 

Submission: Please submit your article through this Google Form

Attention Parent/Guardian: It is highly recommended that your teen is responsible for all correspondence regarding the Teen Volunteer Program; starting with the review submission process and continuing throughout their volunteer service. This program strives to prepare your child for his/her first job. We feel that the more responsibility that volunteers have in the successful execution of completing their service, the better prepared he or she will be to apply for jobs and enter the workforce. When at all possible, please ask your teen to call, email, organize, and initiate!  Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
