LTS Poetry Workshop
Greenburgh Public Library, Thursday, June 22 at 2:30pm
The Brenda Connor-Bey Learning to See™ Legacy Workshop Series focuses on writing poems about art, and exploring all creative writing, as well as other ways to "see" poetry through the "ekphrastic" style. (Ekphrasis = "Description" in Greek. An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art.)
Students enroll for three-session workshops of two hours each. Partially funded by Poets&Writers, the Friends of Greenburgh Library, and Greenburgh Arts & Culture, workshops are free and open to the public. Beginners as well as established poets are welcomed. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend all three sessions. After registration limit is reached, a Wait List will be formed and students contacted as spaces become available. Teacher: Kate Gallagher (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

"The Pride of the Yankees" with Richard Sandomir
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Thursday, June 22 at 7pm
The untold story behind the first great sports film.

On July 4, 1939, baseball great Lou Gehrig stood in Yankee Stadium and gave a speech that contained the phrase that would become legendary: “I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.”

He died two years later and his fiery widow, Eleanor, wanted nothing more than to keep his memory alive. With her forceful will, she and the irascible producer Samuel Goldwyn quickly agreed to make a film based on Gehrig’s life, “The Pride of the Yankees.” Goldwyn didn’t understand -- or care about -- baseball. For him this film was the emotional story of a quiet, modest hero who married a spirited woman who was the love of his life, and, after a storied career, gave a short speech that transformed his legacy. With the world at war and soldiers dying on foreign soil, it was the kind of movie America needed.

Using original scripts, letters, memos, and other rare documents, Richard Sandomir tells the behind-the-scenes story of how a classic was born. The search to find the actor to play Gehrig; the stunning revelations Eleanor made to the scriptwriter Paul Gallico about her life with Lou; the intensive training Gary Cooper underwent to learn how to catch, throw, and hit a baseball for the first time.

Join Richard Sandomir for our intimate Clubhouse conversation on Thursday, June 22.

RSVP required to attend.

Autographed and personalized copies of “The Pride of the Yankees: Lou Gehrig, Gary Cooper, and the Making of a Classic” will be available for purchase. The author will sign only books purchased in the Clubhouse.

Richard Sandomir is an author and a reporter with the “New York Times.” (Clubhouse)

Rye S.T.E.A.M. ROLLERS Grades 3-4
Rye Free Reading Room, Saturday, June 24 at 5pm
All Ryebrary S.T.E.A.M. ROLLERS in grades 3 & 4 are invited to join the librarians once-a-month in our "New S.T.E.A.M. LAB" where Literacy meets S.T.E.A.M. Each month we will read a book together. Then taking inspiration from the story, we will teach kids how to think with their hands and minds. It's Inquiry-based learning combined with a hands-on-activity in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, or Math. Literacy Meets S.T.E.A.M.!
Dave the Potter: Artist, Poet, Slave by Laban Carrick Hill. The S.T.E.A.M. activity will be making something out of clay. *Children do not have to pre-read the book.
Dave was an extraordinary artist, poet, and potter living in South Carolina in the 1800s. He combined his superb artistry with deeply observant poetry, carved onto his pots transcending the limitations he faced as a slave. In this inspiring and lyrical portrayal, National Book Award nominee Laban Carrick Hill's elegantly simple text and award-winning artist Bryan Collier's resplendent, earth-toned illustrations tell Dave's story, a story rich in history, hope and long-lasting beauty.
