Winter Solstice Concert with Ensemble Galilei
Wednesday, December 20th
7 pm
The Lovatt Room

It’s a very special event with the nationally known Celtic music group Ensemble Galilei, returning to Pinedale for an evening of free holiday music. Last year, Ensemble Galilei joined with English tenor, James Oxley, for their Christmas concerts. Their soulful carols, Irish reels, original tunes, and Swedish songs, performed with crazy virtuosity create the feeling that time has stood still. Their concerts are described as being personal and remarkable enough that you will walk away thinking that the hustle and bustle of the holiday season no longer matters – that the holiday really is about the coming of light.

Based in the Washington DC area, Ensemble Galilei’s members have performed around the world. The Washington Post says “…they play with energy, splendid ensemble, good humor and imagination.” National Public Radio's Performance Today said, "There's an ease about the way they play that seems to break down the barriers that normally exist between the audience and the performer." Don’t miss this special free holiday concert.

This evening's concert at the library will feature the following artists:

Adaiha Macadam-Somer, viola da gamba
Ryan McKasson - fiddle
Kathryn Montoya - recorders and pennywhistle
Sue Richards - Celtic harp
Carolyn Surrick - viola da gamba
with guest, James Oxley, tenor

Sarah Jessica Parker Book Club
Wednesday, January 17th
1 2 noon
The Western Americana Room

It's a different kind of book club, based on Book Club Central, a new initiative of the American Library Association that was designed to provide the public with the very best in reading. It’s a quarterly book club in which award-winning actor, producer, and avid reader Sarah Jessica Parker is the honorary chair. Ms. Parker selects books throughout the year to share her joy of reading and discussing good books with readers everywhere. The book club meets four times a year.

I have always loved to read for the same reason I love to act, which is that other people’s stories are more interesting to me than my own.
- Sarah Jessica Parker

Come in and pick up a copy of the second book, Exit West by Mohsin Hamid, for our discussion in January. A finalist for the Man Booker Prize and a New York Times bestseller, this astonishingly visionary love story imagines the forces that drive ordinary people from their homes into the uncertain embrace of new lands.

For more information about this book club, contact Judi Boyce at the library, 367-4114 or jboyce@sublettecountylibrary.org.
