The Living Person's Guide to Dying presents: Obituary Writing w/ Kate Klise
11:00 AM - 12:30 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.

Today, join Kate Klise, author, for a presentation on obituary writing: how to select the memorable moments of your life and shape them into a lasting legacy that represents who you really are.

 


"Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it." --Haruki Murakami


This project has been funded in whole or in part with federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, under Cooperative Agreement UG4LM012347-01 with the University of Massachusetts, Worcester.

The Living Person's Guide to Dying presents: Childhood Grief in Context w/ 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 Svetlana Leeds, PsyD, for a presentation on childhood grief in context: how to raise children who have the cognitive, emotional, and social flexibility to work through grief at various stages of development; how to help children build the foundation for resilience before they are faced with hardships; and how we can recognize and support children through the many stages of the grieving journey.

 


"Death is not the opposite of life, but a part of it." --Haruki Murakami

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...

Going to Extremes
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
A nationally-known adventure travel journalist for The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, National Geographic, and The Providence Journal, Peter Mandel hunts his stories and photos in the world's far corners, including Antarctica, India, Egypt, Patagonia, the fjords of Norway, the mountain pathways of Japan, and the deserts of Africa. 
 
The author of ten books, he'll show slides of his most extreme travel experiences —surviving a coup in Ecuador, visiting a ‘city’ of penguins at the South Pole, fishing for piranha on Brazil’s Rio Negro, floating in the Goodyear Blimp, sailing on an Arctic icebreaker, camping in the African bush, and kayaking to the Statue of Liberty — and talk about how adventure travel turns to prose in today's media.  
 
Mandel's books have been published by Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins and Henry Holt. One of his Boston Globe articles won the 2005 Lowell Thomas gold medal from the Society of American Travel Writers for adventure travel article of the year. Other articles, for The Washington Post and the Baltimore Sun, won Lowell Thomas Awards in 2003, 2006 and 2007.

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...

The Living Person's Guide to Dying: Children & Grief w/ Danielle Epstein
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 Danielle Epstein, MSW, LICSW, for a presentation on children and grief.

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.

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...

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...
