Winter Solstice Concert with Ensemble Galilei
Wednesday, December 20th
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
Macadam-Somer, viola da gamba
McKasson - fiddle
Montoya - recorders and pennywhistle
Richards - Celtic harp
Surrick - viola da gamba
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 email@example.com.
