This month we will be discussing When I Was the Greatest by Jason Reynolds
"Ali's got enough going on, between school and boxing and helping out at home. His best friend Noodles, though. Now there's a dude looking for trouble—and, somehow, it's always Ali around to pick up the pieces. But, hey, a guy's gotta look out for his boys, right? Besides, it's all small potatoes; it's not like anyone's getting hurt. And then there's Needles. Needles is Noodles's brother. He's got a syndrome, and gets these ticks and blurts out the wildest, craziest things. It's cool, though: everyone on their street knows he doesn't mean anything by it. Yeah, it's cool...until Ali and Noodles and Needles find themselves somewhere they never expected to be...somewhere they never should've been—where the people aren't so friendly, and even less forgiving."

John Keklak Sports Photography Exhibit (Fowler Branch)
John Keklak, a resident of Sudbury, has been an avid sports photographer for several decades. His objective as a photographer is to capture the emotional intensity and focus of an athlete, whether they are a world-class runner or a four-year-old playing in their first soccer game.
Many of his photos have been published by the Sudbury Town Crier, the Boston Herald, US Track and Field, and ESPN.  Photos from the 2014 USATF Masters National Championships are featured in the book "Mastering Running" by world-ranked runner and coach Dr. Cathy Utzschneider.  His weekly "Viewfinder" photo essays were a feature in the Sudbury Patch for several years. A collection of Mr. Keklak's photos will be on exhibit at the Concord Library during June 2016.
On Monday, June 13th at 7 p.m. (Fowler Branch), Mr. Keklak will give a presentation about taking great sports photos.
