rec_paint_palette.png Art Display: Blake's Bowls Remind Me about this Event 3 Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact:    1-866-941-8188   
   

Blake Patterson returns with a collection of his uniquely beautiful handmade segmented wood bowls. Mr. Patterson is a largely self-taught 'segmenter', one of the 1% of non-traditional wood turners. He begins with dry, stable wood, preferring to re-use wood that might otherwise become landfill: old furniture, used building material, cabinet-shop scraps, etc. Using a miter saw, he cuts strips of wood into pie shapes to form disks for the bottoms and tops of his bowls, and trapezoid shapes to form rings. This requires precise angles and accurate dimensions. He alternates wood pieces to create patterns and decorations such as checkerboards, diamonds, and concentric squares. After attaching the segments together the bowl is lathe-turned, inside and out, sanded, and finished. This year, Blake has added some unexpected vibrancy to some of his creations, with colored epoxy. He hopes you enjoy them!

All the bowls are for sale. To purchase, contact the artist with the number of the bowl you would like, and he will reserve it for you and arrange for payment and delivery at month's end. You can find a list of the bowls by number and price at the Circulation desk. Mr. Patterson donates a portion of his proceeds to the Monmouth County Library. In addition to the pieces at the library, he has more wood-art bowls available at his Tinton Falls home/studio. 

Blake's Bowls are on display in the Library Lobby for the month of August. Come and see this amazing collection!

The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins

The Moonstone was first published in 1868 and is considered the granddaddy of all detective novels. It has stood the test of time and has all the elements of a great mystery...a complex crime, lots of suspects, and murder! The story centers on the Moonstone, a diamond taken from an Indian shrine, and brought back to England by a British officer. Of course, it has a curse on it, as well as an ingenious inspector determined to get to the truth. It is still a page-turner!

All Good Children by Catherine Austen

Maxwell 'Max' Connors lives in the planned community of New Middletown, one of the few safe havens after an economic and ecologic collapse. When the town's students receive a treatment that turns them into obedient, well-mannered, lifeless citizens, Max realizes he must find a way to save his family and friends from becoming mindless drones. This dystopian novel is action-packed, entertaining, and will provoke discussions about civil liberties, resistance, and conformity.

Moderated by Trish Shrodo. 

Books will be available on Ebsco Books. Use the following link to bring you to the login page: https://bit.ly/3cOdybk. There is a limited number of physical books available through your local Monmouth County Library Branch.

The Other Americans by Laila Lalami

Late one spring night in California, Driss Guerraoui - father, husband, business owner, Moroccan immigrant - is hit and killed by a speeding car. The aftermath of his death brings together a diverse cast of characters - deeply divided by race, religion, and class – who, as they each tell their stories in their own voice, have connections among them emerge. Driss's family confronts its secrets, a town faces its hypocrisies, and love - messy and unpredictable - is born. Timely, riveting, and unforgettable, The Other Americans is at once a family saga, a murder mystery, and a love story informed by the treacherous fault lines of American culture.

Moderated by Robyn Miller.

Inheritance: A Memoir of Genealogy, Paternity, and Love by Dani Shapiro

What makes us who we are? What combination of memory, history, biology, experience, and that ineffable thing called the soul defines us? In the spring of 2016, through a genealogy website to which she had whimsically submitted her DNA for analysis, Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. She woke up one morning and her entire history - the life she had lived - crumbled beneath her. Inheritance is a book about secrets within families, kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. 

Moderated by Stephanie Laurino.

Bowlaway by Elizabeth McCracken

From the day she is discovered unconscious in a New England cemetery at the turn of the twentieth century - with nothing but a bowling ball, a candlepin, and fifteen pounds of gold on her person - Bertha Truitt is an enigma to everyone in Salford, Massachusetts. She has no past to speak of, or at least none she is willing to reveal, and her mysterious origin scandalizes and intrigues the townspeople. But Bertha is plucky, tenacious, and entrepreneurial, and the bowling alley she opens quickly becomes Salford's most defining landmark - with Bertha its most notable resident. Bowlaway is both a stunning feat of language and a brilliant unraveling of a family's myths and secrets, its passions and betrayals, as well as the ties that bind and the rifts that divide.

The Library Book by Susan Orleans

On the morning of April 29, 1986, a fire alarm sounded in the Los Angeles Public Library. By the time the fire was extinguished, it had consumed 400,000 books and damaged 700,000 more. But more than 30 years later, the mystery remains: Did someone purposefully set fire to the library - and if so, who? Orleans also traces the history of libraries in the United States, and the often quirky individuals who were the predecessors of today’s professional librarians.

Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter

Andrea knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows she's spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Belle Isle; she knows she's never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she's never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don't we? But all that changes when a trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a whole new side to Laura. Because it turns out that before Laura was Laura, she was someone completely different. For nearly thirty years she's been hiding from her previous identity, lying low in the hope that no one would ever find her. But now she's been exposed, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Hymns of the Republic: The Story of the Final Year of the American Civil War by S.C. Gwynne

S.C. Gwynne focuses on the period when Ulysses S. Grant takes command in March 1864 to the surrender of Robert E. Lee at Appomattox a year later. Gwynne offers new insights about major components of the war including the battle between Lee and Grant; the advent of 180,000 black soldiers; William Tecumseh Sherman’s March to the Sea; the rise of Clara Barton; the election of 1864, and the dramatic final events of the war, including the murder of Abraham Lincoln.

Moderated by Jeanmarie Kantor
