Adult Book Discussion: 1984 by George Orwell (Mon. 6 Mar, 2017 6:30 pm)

With copies suddenly flying off bookstore shelves, the classic novel, “I984,” written by George Orwell, will be featured at the Danville Public Library Adult Book Discussion on Monday, March 6, 6:30 p.m. at St. Luke’s Community Center, 7 West Rambo Street, Danville.

 

Written in 1948, the novel was Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while “1984” has come and gone, his dystopian vision of a government that will do anything to control the narrative of its people is timelier than ever. Winston cant escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching. A startling and haunting vision of the world, “1984” is so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the influence of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions. And its legacy seems to only grow with the passage of time.

 

The program discussion leaders will be Rose Sebouhian and Sean Smith. The program is free and open to all. A copy of the book donated by the Friends of the Library, will be given away as a door prize.

Adult Book Discussion: Skunk Works: A Personal Memoir of My Time at Lockheed (Tue. 21 Mar, 2017 7:00 pm)

“Skunk Works: A Personal Memoir of My Years at Lockheed” by Ben Rich and Leo Janos will be featured at the next Adult Book Discussion on Tuesday, March 21, 7:00 p.m. at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street, Mount Vernon.

From the development of the U-2 to the Stealth fighter, the never-before-told story behind America's high-stakes quest to dominate the skies, “Skunk Works” is the true story of America's most secret and successful aerospace operation.

As recounted by Rich, the operation's brilliant boss for nearly two decades, the chronicle of Lockheed's legendary “Skunk Works” is a drama of cold war confrontations and Gulf War air combat, of extraordinary feats of engineering and human achievement against fantastic odds. Here are up-close portraits of the maverick band of scientists and engineers who made the “Skunk Works” so renowned.

Filled with telling personal anecdotes and high adventure, with narratives from the CIA and from Air Force pilots who flew the many classified, risky missions, this book is a riveting portrait of the most spectacular aviation triumphs of the twentieth century.

Discussion moderator Roy Glaser will share personal insight into the program and the advances made in our country’s modern aviation and military engineering.

Limited copies of the book or ebook will be available at any library location while supplies last or can be purchased at any area bookstore. The program is free and open to the public.

Refreshments will be served. Participants will be eligible for a door prize donated by the Friends of the Library.

For more information, call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665), visit www.knox.net or email [email protected].

Silver Screeners Free Movie Matinee: Silent Laughs (Sun. 26 Mar, 2017 1:30 pm)

Every generation has its kings of comedy, those jesters who brighten our lives and lighten our souls. This month’s Silver Screeners Free Classic Movie Matinee on Sunday, March 26, 1:30 p.m. at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street will present a double feature of two of the best Silent Laughs—“Sherlock Jr.” starring Buster Keaton and “Safety Last” with Harold Lloyd.

 

When we think of the comedians of the silent era, most see Chaplin and his beloved tramp. However, Lloyd and Keaton were just as prolific and popular. “Sherlock Jr.” starring Keaton features impressive visual effects as well as thrilling car chases, daring stunts, and sappy romance tied together with humor and charm. Most people remember Harold Lloyd was a man hanging from a clock face. These few seconds of footage comes from the film, “Safety Last.” The film is a warm-hearted romp showing just how far a guy will go to impress a girl.

 

Film and history buffs Steven Moore and Mickey Shire will host a brief discussion prior to and following both films.

 

The program is free and open to the public. Popcorn will be provided by Friends of the Library. For more information call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665), visit www.knox.net or email [email protected]

This year’s Theme – “Let It Be Love” (Family Force 5)

This year’s Theme Verses – John 13:34-35 (NIV - New International Version)

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Kenyon Billy Shakespeare Presents: As You Like It, Free Performance (Wed. 29 Mar, 2017 5:00 pm)

Members of the Kenyon College Billy Shakespeare Project (aka “Billy Shakes” Project) will present a special performance of “As You Like It” on Wednesday, March 29, 5:00 p.m., at the Public Library of Mount Vernon & Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street, Mount Vernon.

“As You Like It” is a pastoral comedy believed to have been written by William Shakespeare in 1599, and first published in the First Folio, 1623. The story follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle's court. Rosalind is accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden.

In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveler Jacques who speaks many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches (such as "All the world's a stage", "too much of a good thing" and "A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest"). Jacques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.

The Billy Shakespeare Project began in 2011 as a challenge to bring the works of Shakespeare to life for students and audiences of all ages by condensing the works to under one hour. Since its inception, the group has presented programs for local elementary schools.

The program is free and open to the public of all ages. Refreshments will be served.

For information call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665), visit www.knox.net or email [email protected].
