7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Virtual Author Visit with Ethel Rohan

Ethel Rohan will join us via Zoom to discuss her new short story collection, In the Event of Contact.

In the Event of Contact contains fourteen gripping stories set in Ireland, England, and America. Stories from a fierce and fantastic voice that chronicle characters profoundly affected by physical connection, or its lack—survivors who turn trauma into power and make startling bids for recovery.

Among them, a scrappy teen vies to be the next Sherlock Holmes; an immigrant daughter must defend her decision to remain childless; a guilt-ridden woman is haunted by the disappearance of her childhood friend; a cantankerous crossing guard celebrates getting run over by a truck; an embattled priest with dementia determines to perform a heroic, redemptive act, if he can only remember how; and an aspirational, angst-ridden mother captains the skies.

Amid backgrounds of trespass and absence, the indelible characters of In the Event of Contact seek renewed belief in themselves, recovery, and humanity. 

Ethel Rohan is the author of In the Event of Contact, winner of the Dzanc Short Story Collection Prize (2021). Her debut novel The Weight of Him (St. Martin's Press and Atlantic Books, 2017) was an Amazon, Bustle, KOBO, and San Francisco Chronicle Best Book, and was shortlisted for the Reading Women Award. She is also the author of the story collections, Goodnight Nobody and Cut Through the Bone, the former longlisted for the Edge Hill Prize and the latter longlisted for the Story Prize. Her work has appeared widely, including The New York Times, World Literature Today, The Washington Post, PEN America, The Irish Times, Tin House, and Guernica. Raised in Ireland, she lives in San Francisco.

The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation approximately an hour before the start of the program.  Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices.

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Virtual Yin Yoga

Monette Shuttleworth from the Himalayan Institute of Pittsburgh leads this monthly program. She will provide background, support tips and answer any questions! We will meet on the 3rd Thursdays of every month. Register below for entire series (cancel registration only if canceling for whole series).  

Yin Yoga is slow-paced and meditative in nature and serves to complement to more active yoga (Yang) styles. Yin Yoga emphasizes passive postures held for several minutes at a time, with muscles in a relaxed state. The connective tissue in and around the muscles and joints is targeted.  Ultimately, Yin Yoga promotes the vitality, hydration, mobility and strength of the connective tissue. It also enhances a balanced flow of energetic circulation leading to a state of calmness, contentment and an overall lasting feeling of relaxation. Please bring a yoga mat, a pillow, and beach towel to support your practice. Registration required to get Zoom link. Registration is for the entire series and you need not cancel unless you are cancelling for the whole series.

Financing Options For Small Businesses: Community (SCORE Virtual Program)
During this difficult time for you and your business you may need to consider alternative financing options to start or jumpstart your business. Aaron Aldrich will introduce and educate us on Community Development Finance Institutions and their role in financing and services for your small business. These lending organizations are an increasingly vital source for businesses in Western Pennsylvania. 
 
Aaron Aldrich  has 15 years of experience in the banking and finance industry.  His journey started in retail banking where he had various roles within the bank, most notably as a Branch Manager. He developed staff, promoted a customer centric environment and grew deposit and loan balances while maintaining operational soundness. He was recognized for multiple awards during his banking career including a PNC Achievement Award and two Champion Awards from National City Bank.  In 2012, he joined Bridgeway Capital as an Entrepreneur Loan Officer.  In 2014, he became Business Education Director.  As Business Education Director, he led a team of consultants that worked one-on-one with entrepreneurs, assisting them with accounting, marketing and legal services.  In November 2017, he became a certified Growth Wheel Business Advisor.  With this certification he helped entrepreneurs set goals, create action plans and monitor their success through the Growth Wheel online platform.  In 2020 he transitioned back into a lending role as a Growth Loan Officer.  This role focuses on lending to businesses that are growing and creating jobs as well as real estate projects.  Aaron enjoys community service and has instructed financial literacy courses at area high schools and churches. He currently serves as President of the North Side Christian Health Center Board of Directors and Treasurer of the Steel Smiling Board of Directors.  He also serves on the Penn Hills Charter School of Entrepreneurship Finance Committee and Chatham Women Business Center Advisory Board.  Aaron was honored by The New Pittsburgh Courier as a 2019 Men of Excellence Awardee.  Aaron received his BA in Economics from the University of Pittsburgh and his MBA in Business Administration from Point Park University.

Greatest Generation Live: WWII Roundtable
The Veterans Breakfast Club in collaboration with the Mt. Lebanon Public Library and the Historical Society of Mount Lebanon is presenting a series of events and discussions focused on World War II. Veteran Breakfast Club's Glenn Flickinger and film and art historian, Elaine Wertheim will work together to plan programs and discussions. 
 
Tonight's program will feature Tuskegee Airman, Col. Harry Stewart

AT 95, HARRY STEWART is sharp-minded, amiable, and talkative. There is a kindness in his voice that belies his achievements: 75 years earlier, Stewart was flying P-51 Mustangsover Europe with the fabled “Red Tails,” the 332nd Fighter Group made up of African American pilots in the then-segregated U.S. military. He flew 43 combat missions—scoring three kills, all in one day—while escorting and protecting heavy bombers to their targets. While Stewart encountered racism throughout his flying career, he has maintained a positive attitude that helped propel him to top positions as an engineer and company executive. Stewart is the subject and collaborator of a new book by Philip Handleman, Soaring to Glory: A Tuskegee Airman’s Firsthand Account of World War II.-History.net

Mind/Body Practice and Silat Tuo Virtual Program
Pak (instructor) Adam Kripke will introduce you to Silat Tuo, an ancient 1500 year old Indonesian martial art practiced for both its self-defense applications as well as its benefits to one's mind, body, and spirit. Benefits of the art include improved sensitivity, awareness, mindfulness, stress & anxiety reduction, balance, flexibility, fine motor skills, muscle tone, as well as rehabilitation and injury prevention. This is an introduction to the art focusing on the health and spiritual benefits and movements instead of the martial art applications. We will meet on the 1st Tuesday of every month. Register below for entire series (cancel registration only if canceling for whole series).  

Mind/Body Practice and Silat Tuo will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session. The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program. Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program.

Registration is required. By registering for this event you have agreed to comply with the library's patron behavior policy. All non-compliant participants will be immediately and permanently blocked from further participation.  Because the Librarian facilitating the event will not be able to provide live technical support during the virtual program, it is strongly encouraged you familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance of the program. You can also contact the Library’s Virtual Reference Service for assistance learning Zoom. You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom. For more in-depth instructions please visit the Zoom support page on joining a meeting.

RKO: The Rise and Fall of a Major Studio

Jim Valimont from the Pittsburgh Classic Movie Club will discuss RKO, one of the major studios of Hollywood's Golden Age. The shift to sound in movies is the key factor in the creation of RKO. The program will highlight the major stars of RKO Studios, how management changes affected the profitability of the studio, and how Howard Hughes doomed the studio with his management style. 

Jim Valimont is a retired engineer from PPG Industries. He received a B. S. degree in Chemical Engineering and a M. S. degree in Colloids, Polymers, and Surface Chemistry, both from Carnegie-Mellon University.  

The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation approximately an hour before the start of the program.  Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program. 

Registration is required.  By registering for this event you have agreed to comply with the library's patron behavior policy.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Virtual Author Visit with Caroline Kim

Caroline Kim will join us via Zoom to discuss her latest short story collection, The Prince of Mournful Thoughts and Other Stories, which won the 2020 Drue Heinz Literature Prize, 2021 Story Prize, and 2021 PEN/Robert Bingham Prize/Fellowship.

Exploring what it means to be human through the Korean diaspora, Caroline Kim’s stories feature many voices. From a teenage girl in 1980’s America, to a boy growing up in the middle of the Korean War, to an immigrant father struggling to be closer to his adult daughter, or to a suburban housewife whose equilibrium depends upon a therapy robot, each character must face their less-than-ideal circumstances and find a way to overcome them without losing themselves. Language often acts as a barrier as characters try, fail, and momentarily succeed in connecting with each other. With humor, insight, and curiosity, Kim’s wide-ranging stories explore themes of culture, communication, travel, and family. Ultimately, what unites these characters across time and distance is their longing for human connection and a search for the place—or people—that will feel like home.

Caroline Kim was born in South Korea. She has an MFA in Poetry from the University of Michigan, where she won a Hopwood Award and an MA in Fiction from the University of Texas at Austin, where she was a James A. Michener Fellow. She was nominated by Jellyfish Review for a 2019 Best of the Net award. Kim lives in Walnut Creek, California with her husband and three children.

The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation approximately an hour before the start of the program.  Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices.

Ahab Beckons! Moby Dick (Virtual Program)

Join author and lecturer Abby Mendelson for Ahab Beckons!: Moby Dick, or The Whale a three part series June 11, 18 and 25 (register below for all lectures). 

Some have called Herman Melville’s massive opus the quintessential American novel, the well-spring from which every other piece of our fiction grows: sprawling, unsparing, obsessed and obsessive. Coded into a seafaring tale of a mad captain and his mixed-race crew, it’s American insanity, destruction of the natural world, imperialism, barbarism – and brotherhood and survival. As irresistible as it is overwhelming, there was never a better time to read it in-depth, in an annotated edition.

These programs will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session. The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program. Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices.

The Lion Dance Origins and History

 

Join Chris Young, owner of Gong Lung or Steel Dragon, a martial arts and lion dance studio in Ice House Studios in Lawrenceville, for an introduction into the origin and history of the Lion Dance. Chris teaches the Lion Dance to students in the Pittsburgh area. Young was introduced to the dance as a child in northern California. While shopping in San Francisco's Chinatown, Young often saw lion dances and developed a love for the art from as early as age 3 or 4.  Chris Young has been engaged in martial arts or gymnastics for nearly his entire life. He has over 20 years of Chinese martial arts experience in several styles. He started teaching over 10 years ago. While he teaches, Chris continues to train and improve his own kung fu and lion dance knowledge as well and studies Xing-Yi and Bagua in addition to Baiyuan Tongbei, Ying Jow Keun and Wu Tai Chi. He is a disciple of Master Zhang Yun of the Yin Cheng Gong Fa Kung Fu family, originally of Beijing, and his lion dance mentor is Corey Chan of San Francisco. Outside of the martial arts, Chris was also a Commissioner on the PA Governor's Advisory Commission for Asian American Affairs and the board of the National Association of Asian American Professionals - Pittsburgh Chapter.

The lion dance has a continuous history of over one thousand years, and its origins may reach back more than two thousand years. Many stories surround the lion dance and its origins. One of the more popular ones is that an Emperor of China had a dream where a creature resembling a lion saved his life from evil spirits. When he woke he declared the lion a symbol of good fortune. However, since lions are not native to China, artisans had no idea what they look like. As a result, they fashioned an animal with the attributes of other fortunate creatures: the dragon, the phoenix and the dog.

There is perhaps no art that encompasses Chinese culture, history and philosophy more comprehensively than lion dance. Over its long history, lion dance has incorporated elements of Chinese opera, classics of Chinese literature, Taoist, Buddhist and Confucian philosophies, Five Element theory, all sorts of varieties of symbolism from Chinese (and most specifically Cantonese) society, and Chinese martial arts.

The lion dance is now an integral part of not just Chinese culture, but of many Southeast Asian cultures such as Vietnamese, Korean, and Japanese. In fact, the most famous teams are probably from Malaysia.

There are many aspects to lion dance today, and lion dance has performed a number of different roles over history. For instance, lion dance was used to raise money and facilitate communication by revolutionaries attempting to overthrow the Ch'ing, or Manchu, Dynasty. Today, a lion dance can perform many types of purposes, including ceremonial, entertaining, competitive or some combination.

The lion dance is used in ceremonies ranging from the more formal and solemn to the more informal and joyous. Either way, the lion's purpose is to bring good fortune and to drive away any malevolent spirits that might be hanging around. The lion is almost always associated with auspicious acts and events, and must obey certain rules of propriety. These types of events can include house and business blessings, weddings, and other joyous occasions. Lion dance is used to open up a New Year, so it is commonly seen in Chinatowns throughout the country during Chinese New Year celebrations.

A lion dance can also be used to tell a story and simply entertain. Often, there are one or more other characters who interact with the lion, and in fact there can be more than one lion in a performance. These stories are always uplifting and resolved positively, in keeping with the positive nature of the lion. There is no such thing as a lion dance tragedy! Finally, there are various forms of lion dance competition. Malaysia in recent years has dominated this sport, which is often performed on poles reaching up to 12 feet high.

A lion dance typically revolves around a cheng, or puzzle. The cheng sets up the challenge that the lion has to solve according to rules and protocols of lion dance. Often, the chengs have specific purposes or meanings. For instance, "Auspicious Lion Welcomes the Bride" is for bringing blessings upon a marriage and "Drunken Lion" celebrates the togetherness of strong friendship. Some chengs are designed to rid the sponsor of bad fortune as well. Sometimes chengs are just performed for entertainment outside of their particular meanings. In any case, there are hundreds of chengs and sometimes new ones are even created. Often different props such as swords, daggers and spears are used. Additionally, tight ropes, benches, tables and other items may be used as barriers or platforms for the lion. There are a lot of variations, and each team may have a little bit of different ways of solving a cheng. So, lion dance isn't just one standard routine. There are many different lion dance performances and styles you may see that are different of each other. The important thing is that protocols are followed and the chengs are solved correctly. -Gong Lung
