James Patterson, New York Times Bestselling Author, to Appear at Ossining Public Library      New York Times best selling author, James Patterson, will be appearing in the Budarz Theater, located at the Ossining Public Library, on Saturday, August 21 at 1:00 p.m. Patterson is well-known as one of the most successful and prolific authors of our time and his novels routinely reach the upper echelons of all major national best seller lists, including the New York Times. The Ossining Public Library event will focus on Patterson’s newest and fastest growing audience: Teens.  The program, presented by the Teen Services Department at the Library, will consist of three segments. The first is presented in an interview format in which the author will be interviewed by Bob Minzesheimer, a staff writer for USA Today. Mr. Minzesheimer will also moderate a panel consisting of two teen “fans” that will put questions to the famous author. The second segment of the program will be an open question and answer session, where anyone in the audience can engage with Mr. Patterson. Mr. Minzesheimer will also moderate this segment. The third and final segment will be a book signing where Mr. Patterson will sign books for anyone wishing an autographed copy. Village Books of Pleasantville will be on-hand with copies of Patterson’s books available for purchase for those who desire signed copies. Those who already own copies of Patterson’s novels are welcome to bring their copies to the Library for Mr. Patterson to sign. Additionally, there will be a random drawing for two of Patterson’s most recent young adult novels, Witch & Wizard and Fang, both of which will be signed by the author.

In a recent New York Times article about the author, the author says that his inspiration to write young adult novels came from his son, Jack. Like most preteen and early teen boys, Jack had a reluctance to read much of anything. Patterson wanted to write books for preteens and teenagers that would be fun as well as easy to read. The young adult genre was, in one sense, a big leap for an author of primarily violent thrillers. At the same time, writing for young adults was a natural fit for Patterson, whose unadorned prose and fast-paced plots are well suited to reluctant readers. Promoting literacy among children and teens has since become a pet cause for him and he hosts a website, www.ReadKiddoRead.com, aimed at helping parents choose books for their children.

The James Patterson event is open to everyone and is free of charge. However, space is limited. Those wishing to attend this event need to have a ticket in order to be admitted. The tickets are free and are available on a first-come, first-served basis and may be reserved by contacting the Teen Services Desk at the Ossining Public Library at 914-941-2416, extension 336. Tickets can be picked up at the Library anytime during Library hours now through the day of the event.

Paul Gherson Photography Exhibit “Faces of Japan at Cherry Blossom Time” on Display at Ossining Public Library The photography of Paul Gherson is featured in a new exhibit on display in the Gallery at the Ossining Public Library, now through August 30. The exhibit is open daily during normal library hours and is free.  Gherson’s exhibit features photography taken while on two separate trips to Japan, a destination that Gherson traveled to in April 2007 and again in April 2010. April is the time of year that Japan celebrates the Cherry Blossom or “Sakura” as it is known in Japan.  The Cherry Blossom time of year is especially colorful and brimming with life. It is a favorite time of year for weddings and many other family celebrations. The Japanese also celebrate that time of the year with “hanami” (cherry blossom viewing) parties under the blooming trees.  The cherry blossom is Japan's unofficial national flower. It has been celebrated for many centuries and holds a very prominent position in Japanese culture. There are many dozens of different cherry tree varieties in Japan, most of which bloom for just a couple of days during the spring. Gherson’s photography expertly captures this colorful time of year in the expressive faces and captivating native dress of Japan’s people.  Making the exhibit unique is that he did not originally envision the works on display as an exhibit. When deciding what to display, he “discovered” many of the photographs naturally fell into the overall theme of Japan during the Cherry Blossom season. Thus, the exhibit became “Faces of Japan at Cherry Blossom Time”.  The exhibit is on display in the Gallery located on the lower level of the Ossining Public Library and can be viewed anytime during normal library hours now through August 30.

 

 

Community Singing Group “Old Mill Singers” Invites New Members to Join for its 2010 Holiday Show  The Old Mill Singers invite those who enjoy singing to join us as we prepare for our upcoming show in December, 2010.  With a theme of “Have A Merry…..” the show will include a variety of holiday themed numbers -- from the silly to the sublime – continuing our tradition of just plain having fun as we entertain Westchester County.  They begin rehearsals for their holiday show on Tuesday night, September 7th.  Weekly rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm at St. Paul’s-On-The-Hill Episcopal Church, 40 Ganung Drive in Ossining.  A largely amateur chorus, The Old Mill Singers tackle most styles of music – pop, jazz, Broadway, folk, ethnic, novelty acts and even some original numbers composed by their members.  They may do a little bit of classical, but unlike most local choral groups their focus is on lighter fare.  They have no formal auditions so if you like to sing, come give us a try and sit in on a rehearsal. The ability to read music is not required - just the ability to sing in tune in a group.  President John Massey says, “I probably couldn’t get into most of the choruses in Westchester County, but director Gary Bratt has the skill to take a hodge-podge of just plain folks and make us sound good.”  In fact, that is a hallmark of who we are – an eclectic mix of some very good singers and some just very good people – who like to have fun with music and with each other.  Gary Bratt has been the director for most of the nearly forty years they’ve been around.  They now have about sixty active members, men and women of all ages and from all walks of life.  Also, there is a separate children’s chorus so Old Mill is truly a family affair.  In addition to their semi-annual concerts, The Old Mill Singers perform at community functions and local nursing homes.  This year we are again scheduled to sing a portion of our holiday concert in the lobby of the Met Life Building in New York City, entertaining commuters as they head for Grand Central Terminal.   See us on the web at www.oldmillsingers.org or on Facebook.  Prospective members should contact our Membership Chairman, Sharon Brana at oldmillsingers@gmail.com or 914 762-3765.

Presenting the Films of Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger The Associates of the Ossining Public Library announce a free film series featuring the films of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger that will begin on Wednesday, September 15, at 7:00pm, and will continue with one film each month through December. Each film is free to attend will be shown in the Budarz Theater located in the Ossining Public Library.

The films being shown in the series are I Know Where I’m Going” from 1945, starring Joan Webster which will be shown on Wednesday, September 15, Stairway to Heaven” from 1946 starring David Niven and Kim Hunter shown on Wednesday, October 13, Black Narcissus” from 1947 starring Deborah Kerr and David Farrar showing on Wednesday, November 3, and The Red Shoes” from 1948 starring Jean Short and Marius Goring showing on Wednesday, December 1. Each film starts at 7:00pm.   Michael Powell was born and raised in Canterbury, England, and learned the craft of filmmaking by working various jobs at the studios of Denham & Pinewood, working his way up to producer on a series of short films made to fulfill quota agreements between Britain and America during the years between the wars. He eventually met and teamed up with Emeric Pressburger and under the banner of “The Archers” shared joint credit for an important series of films through the 1940s and 1950s. Powell’s film work has been an influence on modern filmmakers such as Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese.  Emeric Pressburger was born in Hungary and educated at the Universities of Prague and Stuttgart. Prior to WWII, he worked on films for the UFA (the German film industry) in Berlin as well as in Paris. Being Jewish, he managed to escape WWII Germany and found sanctuary in London where he eventually met Michael Powell. Together as “The Archers”, Pressburger often showed a deep understanding of the British, even though on arrival in England he spoke almost no English.

The four films that comprise this series represent some of the most important and finest work of the filmmaking duo and serve to illustrate some of the best of what Hollywood produced in the 1940s and 1950s. The series, presented by the Associates of the Ossining Public Library, is moderated by Mark Hassklar. Mr. Hassklar served as Director of the Chappaqua Public Library where he moderated a very successful and long-running fim series. The Powell & Pressburger film series is curated by Bonnie Katz. The series is open to everyone and is free. For information, call 914-941-2416.

The Lady With All The Answers, A delightful play about Ann Landers by David Rambo, Starring Carol Eagen Directed by Michael Muldoon.  "The Lady With All the Answers" performed by M&M Productions Acting Company, Inc. at the Ossining Public Library on Thursday, October 14th at 7:30 p.m. in the Budarz Theater.  "Dear Ann Landers"…For decades, renowned advice columnist Ann Landers answered countless letters from lovelorn teens, confused couples and a multitude of others in need of advice. No topic was off-limits, including nude housekeeping, sex in a motorcycle helmet, the proper way to hang toilet paper, sibling rivalries, addiction and wandering spouses. Landers regaled her readers with direct, insightful and often humorously honest responses. Late on a 1975 night in Landers' Chicago apartment, an ironic twist of events confronts her with a looming deadline for a column dealing with a new kind of heartbreak: her own. As she shares her struggles to complete the column with us, we learn as much about ourselves as we do about the wise, funny, no-nonsense woman whose daily dialogue with America helped shape the social and sexual landscapes of the last half-century. Directed by Michael Muldoon, Carol Eagen will portray the delightful Ann Landers. For more information contact Melinda O’Brien at 914.962.3431 or MMLibraryTheatre@hotmail.com.
