Sci-Fi Book Club at the Cotuit Library

The Cotuit Library Sci-Fi Book Club is meeting once again for some stellar book discussing. This month we will be reading John Crowley’s enchanting tale of magic and family: Little, Big. Copies of the text will be available in hardcopy at the Library and in digital form on the Libby app.

“John Crowley's masterful Little, Big is the epic story of Smoky Barnable, an anonymous young man who travels by foot from the City to a place called Edgewood—not found on any map—to marry Daily Alice Drinkwater, as was prophesied. It is the story of four generations of a singular family, living in a house that is many houses on the magical border of an otherworld. It is a story of fantastic love and heartrending loss; of impossible things and unshakable destinies; and of the great Tale that envelops us all. It is a wonder.”

Admission is free, though donations are welcome. Please register at cotuitlibrary.org/events--activities or contact the Library.

The Playwrights Lab at Cotuit Center for the Arts

THE PLAYWRIGHTS LAB AT COTUIT CENTER FOR THE ARTS LAUNCHES NOVEMBER 10!

Our mission is to provide emerging and established playwrights a twice-monthly FREE forum to workshop and develop scripts in progress.

Led by playwrights James and Jean Anton and hosted by Cotuit Center for the Arts, the Playwrights Lab will be a place where plays-in-progress are shared, discussed, and nurtured in a community of peers.

Meetings will occur on the 2nd Sunday of every month at the Center, and on the 4th Saturday at the Centerville Public Library.

The first meeting of The Playwrights Lab is Nov 10 at the Center, 6–9pm, in the upstairs classroom of the Black Box. The second meeting will take place from 10am–12pm on Nov 23 in the conference room of the Centerville Public Library.

It is essential to a play’s development to hear it read aloud, and whenever possible, actors will cold-read from a playwright’s script. If actors are not available, member playwrights will read. Actors who are interested in doing cold reads (as well as contributing feedback to playwrights) are encouraged to become members of the Lab.

The Playwrights Lab will also support members by sourcing venues that are open to new work and sharing information on play-writing contests, submission opportunities, and grants.

Stop, Look, & Listen: Poetry with Marjorie Block, Late Fall 2019

Walt Whitman said, “I think I will do nothing for a long time but listen.” Do you ever wish you could stop and simply listen? Together we will stop. We will look and listen to the world around us inside and outside of ourselves. We’ll keep a list of what we see and hear. We’ll play with these ordinary words and use them to write our feelings into poems. A secret: poetry lets you show how you feel without having to tell the whole story. Most importantly I want to say we are not going to grade ourselves in any way! So come and do nothing but listen to each other’s words. Listen to the songs of ourselves.

Date:

Wednesdays, Nov 6–Dec 18 (no class Nov 27)

Time:

10am–12pm

Location:

6 classes, in the Schoolhouse

Price:

$180 / $153 member

Love Letters from The Front

Love Letters from The Front

Sunday, October 27, at 3pm. Performers Robert DiCicco and Cyndy Gayle present Love Letter from the Front, a reading with music and images. The 1940s were the golden age of the American Songbook. It would seem that WWII and the music from that era go hand-in-hand. World War II was the centerpiece of the decade and, as one music critic wrote, "In a very real sense, American popular music was the popular music of World War II." The war was an emotional period, and these songs tapped a reservoir of emotions: hope, longing, loneliness, and love. Love Letters From The Front takes us back in time to the war years of 1940-1945 when American GI's were sending off letters to their spouses and loved ones. This production showcases some of those letters with the appropriate song from that era as a backdrop. We take time out to honor those brave men and women who fought valiantly for our country during that tumultuous time, and will look forward to an evening of beautiful music and hope through Love Letters from The Front. $20. Complimentary refreshments. For tickets click here, or call 508-394-7100.

Calliope Poetry Reading & Open Mic

Sunday, October 20, from 3-5pm. The Cultural Center is pleased to host this event organized by Calliope, the Cape Cod-based organization that seeks to foster community through a shared appreciation of poetry, featuring work by three poets-Elizabeth Bradfield, Justen Ahren, and Rich Youmans-whose books take us on journeys, both near and far. The reading will be followed by an open mic, so poets in the audience will have an opportunity to share their work as well. The event is free, but donations will be appreciated. Writer/naturalist Elizabeth Bradfield will read selections from her fourth collection, Toward Antarctica which combines her photographs with brief, hybrid essays. Bradfield is the author of three previous poetry books, Once Removed, Approaching Ice and Interpretive Work. She is founder and editor-in-chief of Broadsided Press, and teaches creative writing at Brandeis University. Justen Ahren is a poet, photographer, multi-media artist, performer and teacher whose latest book, A Machine for Remembering, combines poetry and photography as a document of witness to Europe's refugee crises. A former poet laureate of Martha's Vineyard, Ahren is founder and director of Noepe Center for the Literary Arts and the Italy Writing Workshop. Rich Youmans's haiku, haibun, and related essays have been published internationally in various journals and anthologies, and he currently serves on the editorial team of Haibun Today and on the forthcoming anthology, From the Farther Shore: Discovering Cape Cod and the Islands Through Poetry (Bass River Press). His latest chapbook, Head-On: Haibun Stories illuminates the seemingly insignificant details that portray the unpredictability of life. For more information, click here or call 508-394-7100.

Sci-Fi Book Club

The Cotuit Library Sci-Fi Book Club is meeting once again for some stellar book discussing. This month we will be reading a true delight from the late Sir Terry Pratchett: The Wee Free Men. Copies will be available for checkout at the Library and in ebook form on the Libby app leading up to the event.

“Armed only with a frying pan and her common sense, Tiffany Aching, a young witch-to-be, is all that stands between the monsters of Fairyland and the warm, green Chalk country that is her home. Forced into Fairyland to seek her kidnapped brother, Tiffany allies herself with the Chalk's local Nac Mac Feegle - aka the Wee Free Men - a clan of sheep-stealing, sword-wielding, six-inch-high blue men who are as fierce as they are funny. Together they battle through an eerie and ever-shifting landscape, fighting brutal flying fairies, dream-spinning dromes, and grimhounds - black dogs with eyes of fire and teeth of razors - before ultimately confronting the Queen of the Elves, absolute ruler of a world in which reality intertwines with nightmare. And in the final showdown, Tiffany must face her cruel power alone...

“In a riveting narrative that is equal parts suspense and humor, Carnegie Medalist Terry Pratchett returns to his internationally popular Discworld with a breathtaking tale certain to leave fans, new and old, enthralled.”

Wellfleet Public Library Lecture by Ken Gloss on the Value of Old and Rare Books

7:00 PM19:00

Wellfleet Public Library Lecture by Ken Gloss on the Value of Old and Rare Books

Boston, MA – Kenneth Gloss, proprietor of the internationally known Brattle Book Shop in Boston’s Downtown Crossing section, will give a free and open talk Thursday, September 6 at 6:30 pm at the newly restored Steinway Library of the Pilgrim Hall Museum, 75 Court Street, Plymouth, MA. Ken will discuss the value of old and rare books.

Ken, who is also a frequent guest appraiser on PBS’ Antiques Roadshow, will talk in part about the history of his historic bookshop (www.brattlebookshop.com), which goes back to circa 1825. He is a second-generation owner.

Ken will talk about and show some of his favorite finds and describe some of the joys of the "hunt," as well as explain what makes a book go up in value. He has many fascinating anecdotes to share as well as guidelines for what to look for when starting a collection. There is also a Q&A session before the conclusion of his talk.

Following the talk and question-and-answer session, he will give free verbal appraisals of all books that attendees have brought with them or will do so at his shop in Boston.

Yankee Magazine Editor's Choice Award for Best of New England, the Brattle Book Shop is one of America’s oldest and largest antiquarian bookstores. 2018 is the 69th year of Gloss family ownership. Kenneth Gloss succeeded his late father, George Gloss, a well-known figure both in Boston and national antiquarian circles. He had worked in the store since childhood and chose to go into the book business rather than pursue a doctorate in chemistry. He became the sole proprietor upon his father's death in 1985. "I found that books were in my blood and that I would never be really happy if I abandoned the business."

Among the many organizations in which Kenneth Gloss is a member is the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America, the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, the New England Antiquarian Booksellers of America, the Massachusetts and Rhode Island Antiquarian Booksellers Association, the Committee for the Boston International Antiquarian Book Fair and the Boston Society. He also is a Fellow of the Massachusetts Historical Society as well as serving on the Board of Overseers of the USS Constitution Museum.

The Brattle Book Shop is proud to have been a contributor to the WGBH Annual Auction each year that the station has held this fund drive. Ken has appeared as a guest appraiser on PBS’ Antiques Roadshow numerous times over the years and has been a popular guest on WBZ Radio as well as other radio, TV, and cable stations numerous times. His bylined articles continue to appear in various antique journals and in print and online consumer publications. The Brattle Book Shop is also the recipient of several “Best of Boston” awards in the categories of Best Book Shop or Best Antiquarian Book Shop. In addition, it has been included in a list as one of North America’s best bookstores.

For further information about this talk and more about book-collecting, appraisals, and future free and open talks, call the store toll-free at 800-447-9595, or visit their website, www.brattlebookshop.com. To learn of some of Ken’s more fun and unique finds, listen to Brattlecast, his new podcast: http://www.brattlebookshop.com/brattlecast (also available on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/brattlecast/id1295728623?mt=2).
