November 1
Lakewood Public Cinema: "Barton Fink" (1991) Directed by Joel and Ethan Coen

A New York playwright is brought to Hollywood to write for the movies. But why do they need a genius to write a Wallace Beery wrestling picture? Despite the clever jabs, this isn’t one of those showbiz satires. That’s too easy for the filmmakers behind Fargo, the Big Lebowski and other gems. Their target, instead, is the folly of writers. As Barton Fink, John Turturro proclaims his allegiance to the common man, but can't relate to the loneliness of John Goodman, the smiling salesman who lives next door. This surreal comedy just might open his eyes. Literary types will also appreciate the thinly-veiled William Faulkner, boozing away his gifts as a mentor of sorts. When they cleaned out the real Faulkner’s desk at Warner Brothers, all they found was an empty bottle and a piece of foolscap on which he’d written, “Boy meets girl” over a thousand times.
Saturday, November 1 at 6:00 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium

November 2               
Sunday with the Friends: NEO Dixie

What is the NEO twist in this quintet's traditional Dixieland revue? You'll just have to come listen for yourself. The story begins fifteen years ago at Fort Hood when Corporal Lempner of the U.S. Army asked himself, “Trash or treasure?” while rooting through First Cavalry Band's sheet music library. It took him ten years to find the right musicians with the likeminded curiosity to dive into that dusty old box of Dixieland jazz. Tom Lempner tries to play that shiny Kenny G thingy. Mark Russo plays trumpet…and kills it! No one is sure why, but Kris Morron still likes playing the trombone. Darren Allen is the boss on drums and Cutty Calhoun eats Tuba Flakes for breakfast.

Steampunk Jewelry

Steampunk is back at Lakewood Public Library! What is Steampunk? Steampunk is a style that can best be described as romantic yet edgy; industrial and artistic. It’s your favorite science fictionbook mashed up with your favorite romance novel with equal parts metal and lace. It is a type of subculture that mixes the styles of past generations (such as the Victorian era) with modern conveniences, creating inventions that look as if they could have been created generations ago.

Why Is That Art? The Museum Of Contemporary Art Cleveland Answers

“My kindergartener could do that…” sums up what many people think about Contemporary Art. Others will stare at a display piece at MOCA Cleveland and ask, “Why is that art?” The answer to this seemingly simple question quickly branches out intoa discussion of technology, photography, psychology, philosophy, culture - an ever-broadening range of subjects that starts looking like a list of available courses at Cleveland State.

I know what breaking up feels like. Although I’ve been married 20 years and haven’t had the particular displeasure of breaking up in almost 25, when I read Alex Sukhoy’s book “Diary of the Dumped: 30 Days from Break Up to Breakthrough,” her vivid descriptions of the heart-wrenching and second-guessing that come with the end of a relationship brought it all back.

The Joy Of Wonder Woman And The Triumph Of Doctor Who: A Maverick Pop Culture Writer Visits The Library

Three years ago, when Philip Sandifer first began blogging about Doctor Who, he was merely looking for a way to pass the time between receiving his PhD and landing his first academic post. But then something remarkable happened—people started reading his work. He had the mad idea to write about fifty years of the British series, not as individual episodes from different eras created by a multitude of people, but as one giant story. (Which, of course, it is.) And he drew deeply on his knowledge of history, philosophy, literature and David Bowie to reveal the profound and unsettling things that Doctor Who has to say about the human condition—but quite admirably never took himself too seriously. Today, he keeps busy refining his original TARDIS Eruditorum posts into a series of rewarding books and branching out into new pop culture frontiers, reinventing scholarship in a way that makes him the perfect guest for two special programs at the Lakewood Public Library.

Discover Cuyahoga County’s legal warriors when Joseph Patrick Meissner, J.D. visits Lakewood Public Library on Thursday, September 4th. Meissner will discuss his book, Legal Warriors, which was published in 2013. Who are these legal warriors? They are certainly not attorneys. As Meissner explains, legal warriors are “the poor individuals and families who daily struggle to gain their rights…. the community groups fighting for justice and improvements in society. These fighters include families struggling to save their homes from foreclosure. They are the neighborhood organizations combating the industrial polluters who poison our water and air. They are the soldiers who skirmish to keep their gas and lights on. They are newcomers who come to our region to seek a ‘fresh start in life.’”

Lakewood Public Cinema: "The Salton Sea" (2002)

Directed by D. J. Caruso

What happens to you when you lose the love of your life? After witnessing the murder of his wife, Val Kilmer searches for... something... and finds himself adrift in the senseless world of small time thugs and simple junkies. It wasn't her fault—a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. But everybody's in the wrong place at the Salton Sea, the largest inland body of water in California. This godforsaken place must have been beautiful once, but now it's a post-apocalyptic wasteland of houses, trailers and boarded-up beach clubs slowly sinking into the toxic mud. But searching for her here is all he has left... Set to the lonely resonant tones of Miles Davis, this film crawls down the long road that leads beyond crippling alienation.

“So fun and active!” says other attendee Julia Kompier. “I also think it was so awesome and cool. The teachers were so nice. One of the things I liked was the games. I liked the games because they used our body, our voice and because we acted a lot during the games. We played Captain on Deck and a game where we acted out being in different places. I acted out an amusement park and a restaurant and a zoo. The other team acted out a school, a ballet studio and a baseball game. We also played Charades and had to act everything out with a scarf."
