April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate, the Lakewood Public Library is hosting a one-time program for teens, “Haiku & You”. Students in the sixth through twelfth grade can come learn the fine art of Haiku composition and will hopefully find the inspiration to write a few moving lines of their own. We will also learn some basic calligraphy techniques and use them to pen our simple poems, creating a beautiful display piece to take home.

"Nancy Drew, I Wish I Were You! For Nancy Drew Fans Of All Ages"

Saturday, April 25 at 3:00 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium

In the juvenile mystery market, few characters can match the popularity of amateur detective Nancy Drew. Created in 1929, Nancy was the brainchild of New Jersey publisher Edward Stratemeyer, whose “formula fiction” successfully brought The Rover Boys, the Tom Swift series and numerous other characters to American youth in the 1920s. But the endurance of the Nancy Drew phenomenon is the larger mystery… Join Sharon Morrison Pinzone, PhD and find out why.

In this very visual presentation, learn the real story behind the Nancy Drew series, and share a literary and social history analysis of the impact of such a character that still holds a dominant position in juvenile fiction. Reminisce and introduce Nancy Drew to a new generation of mystery readers! Sharon Morrison Pinzone is a free-lance writer and educational speaker with part-time college teaching experience and a PhD in Urban Education. She retired in 2007 with 30 years of high school teaching experience in college writing, journalism, American, British and World Literature and literature electives.

The blues have been around for over a century or more. That’s a long time. We tend to forget things that existed but a year ago much less anything from a century past. That is unless there is someone who becomes a spokesperson, an ambassador if you will for one of our most beloved forms of music. Someone who through sheer grit and determination insists on keeping something alive for others to reap its benefits.

Ernie Krivda: It's Simple

What can be written about Ernie Krivda that hasn’t already been written? This is the question I asked myself, and then I remembered one of my first exchanges with the master.

While setting up the sound for one of our Sunday concerts here at the library I asked Mr. Krivda if everything was okay and to his liking. The response I got said everything there was to know. “My needs are simple” was what Mr. Krivda said. Being accustomed to so many last minute adjustments and trouble shooting I was for once able to relax and smile.

Then it struck me. That’s what happens when Ernie Krivda blows into that sax. One just relaxes and smiles and goes for the ride. And an exciting and unexpected ride it will be. One moment bathed in a rich silky note so low your body vibrates and the next you are at speeds and heights that are dangerous and relentless, all the while watching this figure on stage weave and gyrate into each and every note, albeit mischievous at times as if he knows just ahead where he is taking us. And when he is ready to land, you can sense that too, but still where it ends is as unpredictable as where it starts.

Religion and Science with Michael Miller, Ph.D.: A Fundamental Opposition?
Are science and religion fundamentally opposed to one another? Is there empirical evidence for (or against) God's existence? Is the theory of Intelligent Design a genuine rival to evolutionary theory? In this free and open course from The Laura and Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University, we will consider each of these questions and examine the historical and political context in which they have been debated. In this first meeting, we will reflect on the cultural roles played by religion and science. Should religious belief be based on empirical evidence and reasoned argument? Or does such an approach simply miss the point of religious practice altogether?

Lakewood Public Cinema: "Bon Voyage/Aventure Malgache" (1944)  Directed by Alfred Hitchcock

Hitchcock came to America in 1939, just before the Germans began bombing his homeland. Though he was too old for military service, he felt obligated to do something for the war effort. So he flew to London, sitting on the floor of a bomber, and made these two little-seen short films in tribute to the work of the French Resistance. Bon Voyage is about an RAF gunner who travels through German-occupied France, aided by courageous Resistance operatives. Or so it seems. Like Kurosawa’s Rashomon, when the story is retold with the same characters and events, it takes on a radically different interpretation. Aventure Malgache tells the story of an actor who masqueraded as a loyal Vichy official in Nazi-occupied Madagascar while actually running a pro-Resistance radio station. Professor Terry Meehan continues his series, "Hitchcock Goes to War," introducing each film with rare clips and original documentaries followed by audience reaction and a lively discussion.

Two Lost Hitchcock Films And Howard Hughes’ Hell’s Angels At The Library

Cinema buffs have the opportunity to experience three rare war films at the library: Hitchcock’s Bon Voyage and Aventure Malgache and Howard Hughes’ Hell’s Angels. While London was being bombed, Hitchcock agreed to make two war propaganda films for the British Ministry of Information. In Bon Voyage (1944), a downed RAF gunner travels through France. Filmed as a series of flashbacks, the story is told from two perspectives, that of the gunner and that of an intelligence officer. As with later Hitchcock films, things are seldom what they seem. In Aventure Malgache (1944), an actor, Paul Clarus, masquerades as a loyal Vichy officer while running Madagascar Libre, a pro-resistance radio station.

To decide what is right and what is wrong in our current society can be difficult to say the least. Virtue, morality and kindness often take different forms depending upon the individual manifesting or cultivating them. The same could be said, if not more so, in medieval Japan, a culture steeped in honor and respect, but also soaked in the blood of those who traversed the time of feuding lords and multiple civil wars. On Saturday, December 20 at 6:00 p.m. in the Main Library Auditorium, we will be showing the critically acclaimed movie "Zatoichi."

Best known for his Chronicles of Narnia children’s book series, which includes The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, C.S. Lewis was a beloved author, Christian apologist, renowned academic and medievalist.  Lewis’ “The Screwtape Letters” were initially published as thirty-one installments in the UK’s Guardian newspaper. Lewis was paid two pounds for each letter, and he donated the money to charity. His autobiographical work Surprised by Joy, references his conversion to Christianity, and his A Grief Observed discusses his wife’s death.  Lewis’ indomitable spirit, wry sense of humor, and heartfelt convictions are captured by Dr. Kevin Radaker when he brings A Visit with C.S. Lewis to Lakewood Public Library.

Lakewood Public Cinema: A River Runs Through It (1992)       Directed by Robert Redford

Here’s a movie for fathers and sons and the women who love them. In this true story, based on the memoir by Norman Maclean, two brothers grow up in the majesty of the Montana wilderness under the stern watchful eye of their minister father, played by Tom Skerritt. While Norman, played by Craig Sheffer, learns to channel his natural rebellion into writing and a career as a newspaperman, Brad Pitt’s Paul is an irresistible daredevil that no one can say no to—whose appetites tend to lead him down a slippery path of self-destruction. The one thing that all three men have in common is a committed love of fly-fishing. No matter what conflicts may arise between them, once they wade into the river, they find peace and calm and that all-important sense of belonging. Director Robert Redford paints an inspiring portrait of the strength of the American family—even as he reminds us that its strengths are not limitless. Bring your dad.

Art Show Ends Strokes of Genius

     The fall session of Strokes of Genius at the Lakewood Public Library came to a close in November as participating second, third, and fourth graders proudly showcased their talent at an Art Show for family and friends. Each week students learned about the life and work of a different artist and then completed an art project motivated by the style of that artist. Artwork created by Pierre Auguste Renoir, Leonardo da Vinci, Frederic Remington, Diego Rivera, Maya Lin, and Jackson Pollock provided the inspiration for the students’ creative efforts. Water colors, cut paper, oil pastels, markers, clay, and tempera paint were some of the mediums used. The Jackson Pollock project involved creating an “action painting” with marbles. The young artists placed a marble in paint and then put it on paper that was contained in a box lid. The box was held and tilted at various angles so the marble could roll and spread its paint. This resulted in beautiful works of art! Each participant took home their creative work, a certificate, and a purple ribbon.
