Georgia O'Keeffe: Beyond the Blossoms

Thursday, March 21, 7 p.m.

Flower painting has long been the realm of women artists, so it is not surprising that Georgia O’Keeffe is best known for her revolutionary floral still lifes.  Of course, in her eight-decade-long career, O’Keeffe explored a variety of subjects, including the skyscrapers of NYC and the deserts of New Mexico.  This program will shine a light on other subjects and examine the ways O’Keeffe employed abstraction to become known as the “Mother of American modernism.”  This program will be held on Zoom.  Registration is required to receive the link.  Jane Oneail holds a master’s in Art History from Boston University and a master’s in Education from the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.  Click here to register.

Ban This Book Club!

Monday, March 25, 7 p.m.

Join Librarian Rebecca Harlow for a discussion of Storm and Fury by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Police were called after a teen checked out Storm and Fury from their high school library in Florida. The activists who filed the report called the novel "pornography" and reported that the librarian had committed a third-degree felony. Join us as we discuss this as a work of literature as well as an object of censorship.

Mystery Book Discussion

Thursday, May 2, 2 p.m.

Join us for a discussion of The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Richard Papen had never been to New England before his nineteenth year. Then he arrived at Hampden College and quickly became seduced by the sweet, dark rhythms of campus life, in particular by an elite group of five students, Greek scholars, worldly, self-assured, and at first glance, highly unapproachable. Yet as Richard was accepted and drawn into their inner circle, he learned a terrifying secret that bound them to one another, a secret about an incident in the woods in the dead of night where an ancient rite was brought to brutal life and lead to a gruesome death. And that was just the beginning...Click here to register.
