An Evening with the Warhol Museum

Join Heather White, Artists and Communities Program Coordinator at the Warhol Museum, for an evening of discussion of Warhol's work, and a demonstration of one of his techniques, the Acetate Collage. Learn how Andy Warhol combined photography, collage, silkscreening, and drawing to create a more “collaged” look and feel in some of his commissioned portraits in the 1970s and 1980s. By adding torn graphic color aid papers underneath acetate and then drawing on top, he was able to experiment with different color combinations before committing to a color scheme for his final silkscreened portrait.

Participants will have an opportunity to learn the process, and try it out! No artistic training necessary, all suplies will be provided. 

Registration required!

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
You Must Remember This: The Jewish Experience in Hollywood

Author and lecturer Abby Mendelson will discuss the Jewish experience in Hollywood in a four lectures series (May 13, 20 and 27 and June 3). Forced out of New York, a small group of filmmaking immigrant Jews got as far away from Thomas Edison as they could – all the way to the deserts of Southern California. There, they created the Dream Factory – and succeeded far beyond their wildest expectations, creating both an entire new industry and a true American mythos. While they should have been happy and secure in their new positions, they remained afraid – of America and Europe, of Joseph Kennedy and Joseph McCarthy. Hiding in plain sight, signaling their concerns in coded films, they strove to survive, to assimilate, to retain their nascent empire – with highly mixed results. REGISTER BELOW FOR ALL FOUR PROGRAMS. 

Week I: Something New
Neil Gabler, An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood

Week II: Dodging the Holocaust
Aljean Harmetz, Round Up the Usual Suspects: The Making of Casablanca

Week III: Fighting the Fifth Column
Steven Ross, Hitler in Los Angeles: How Jews Foiled Nazi Plots Against Hollywood and America

Week IV: Battling the Blacklist
Glenn Frankel, High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic

We hope to present these programs in the library building, but we will also offer them on Zoom for anyone who prefers a virtual format. If the library has not resumed "in person" programming, they will be exclusively on Zoom.

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.

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.

Author and lecturer Abby Mendelson will discuss  eight outstanding authors – in poetry, prose, memoir – who desperately search for answers – as well as themselves.

Dead Until Dark / Charlaine Harris

Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana, but she keeps to herself and doesn't date much because of her "disability" to read minds. When she meets Bill, Sookie can't hear a word he's thinking. He's the type of guy she's waited for all of her life, but he has a disability, too--he's a vampire with a bad reputation. When one of Sookie's coworkers is killed, she fears she's next.

Lunch and Munch Book Group

The Lunch and Munch Book Club is in partnership with the Mt. Lebanon Lion's Club and meets when possible at a local restraunt to discuss books while sharing lunch together. When it is not possible to meet in person we will meet virtually via Zoom and we invite you to feel free to munch along with us while discussing non-fiction works of history and historical fiction. This month's selelection is John M. Barry's The Great Influenza. We will be meeting at Mt. Lebanon Public Library in the courtyard. Refreshments will be provided. 

Magisterial in its breadth of perspective and depth of research, The Great Influenza provides us with a precise and sobering model as we confront the epidemics looming on our own horizon. As Barry concludes, "The final lesson of 1918, a simple one yet one most difficult to execute, is that...those in authority must retain the public's trust. The way to do that is to distort nothing, to put the best face on nothing, to try to manipulate no one. Lincoln said that first, and best. A leader must make whatever horror exists concrete. Only then will people be able to break it apart."   
 

The library will have copies of the book at the Circulation desk. Digital copies of the book will be available in Overdrive and the library's AXIS 360 account. Registration is required. Location TBD. If the event is virtual you will receive a Zoom link to the event and book discussion questions one hour prior to the start of the event.

Virtual Great Courses Discussion

Join librarian Laurie Schultz this week for our first discussion on the BBC classic television series Connections by James Burke.

We will watch 2 episodes per week through the month of June. https://www.kanopy.com/en/mtlebanon/video/1217815  Kanopy is available to Mt. Lebanon Library card holders. Registration is for the year. Feel free to join at any time.  

The Virtual Great Courses Discussions 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.
