(VIRTUAL) Living Person's Guide to Dying presents: Grieving the Loss of Normal w/ Dr. Svetlana Leeds
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

In conjunction with NIH and NLM, Sharon Public Library presents A Living Person's Guide to Dying, a multi-part speaker series about death and dying, green burials, digital estate planning, and more. Although death is an inevitable reality of life, we often delay conversations about the topic until after the fact--a habit that can create unnecessary stress or confusion about our end-of-life wishes. The Library is seeking to launch an honest, open series of discussions around this important topic.

Tonight, join DrSvetlana Leeds, PsyD, for a presentation on grieving the loss of our "normal." Our individual and collective worlds have been turned upside, and we are all going through a complex grief process that often feels like a bad roller coaster that has no end point. This discussion is geared towards helping us explore and identify the different ways in which we may all be responding to the loss of our normal. We will identify grounding techniques that help us focus on what we can control and we will discuss safe ways to keep what is out of our control from impacting every aspect of our new daily lives. 

This program will take place on Zoom, a free videoconferencing program. Please email Assistant Director Miki Wolfe at mwolfe@ocln.org to register. Registration is required.

See what all the excitement is for yourself at our monthly Adult Coloring program! We are entering the fourth year of this program, and our patrons' love of coloring has not abated.

We'll have a selection of coloring pages for you to choose from, along with markers, colored pencils and gel pens. Join us for a relaxing evening and color your cares away...

Calling all crafters! Sharon Public Library will be hosting a Crafternoons series with selections from our new arts & crafts database, Creativebug!

A Long Walk Down a Winding Road: Author Talk
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM

Author Sam Farmer will discuss his book A Long Walk Down a Winding Road

Interwoven with real stories of personal triumphs, A Long Walk Down a Winding Road offers clear advice and simple steps for overcoming adversity and improving your life. Growing up, Sam Farmer contended with challenges many of us faceHe was bullied, faced difficulties around self-awareness and social skills, and struggled to build self-esteem. At the age of forty, he received a life-altering diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome. In spite of initial feelings of frustration and confusion, he learned to embrace his newfound “Aspie” profile, recognizing that doing so would ultimately pave the way toward acquiring self-love.

Farmer has written this book in order to share his ideas and insights learned along the winding road of his life. The stories and wisdom shared will inspire and empower everyone to help themselves achieve happier, more productive lives. By emphasizing the importance of a broader acceptance of autism and arguing why it should not be thought of as a disorder, Farmer illustrates how society can greatly benefit from showing an understanding of people who are different.

Author Tina Cassidy Speaker Program
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Please join the Sharon/Stoughton League of Women Voters and the Friends' of the Sharon Public Library as they sponsor author Tina Cassidy.   Ms. Cassidy will discuss her new book,  "Mr. President, How Long Must We Wait?: Alice Paul, Woodrow Wilson, and the Fight for the Right to Vote".  

As described by her agent, Richard Abate, Journalist Tina Cassidy’s vivacious biography of militant activist Alice Paul, one of the undersung heroes of the American women’s suffrage movement and a key player in the adoption of the 19th Amendment, looks at her in the context of and in contrast to President Woodrow Wilson, whom Paul and her peers considered their primary antagonist. Cassidy highlights, with clear admiration, Paul’s energy, vision, and persistence, crediting her with pushing for methods of engagement that are still key to protestors today—marches, picketing at the White House, lobbying, silent protest, noncooperation with arresting officers, and hunger strikes. Her radical push for a constitutional amendment put her in conflict with others in the movement like Carrie Chapman Catt, who preferred a slow, state-by-state approach grounded in the willingness of men to accept the idea of women voting. The depiction of Wilson is conflicted, sympathizing with his stress and fatigue, but ultimately painting him as a failure and an unworthy opponent. Cassidy’s descriptions of the protests and marches led by Paul and her supporters are delightful, full of boisterous color and drama, and featuring the full texts of the wordy (and cheeky) banners used. This engaging history brings the suffrage struggle to life.

Color Your Stress Away
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Do you like to color?  “In a sudden, unexpected, and generally curious development, grown-up versions of the doodle-books used by countless kindergartners have not only become a thing — but the thing, as far as millions of rapt Americans are concerned" said Dugan Arnett of The Boston Globe.

See what all the excitement is for yourself at our monthly Adult Coloring program! We are entering the fourth year of this program, and our patrons' love of coloring has not abated.

We'll have a selection of coloring pages for you to choose from, along with markers, colored pencils and gel pens. Join us for a relaxing evening and color your cares away...
