Check this out. This family has been coming to the library for many years, and the children have been measuring themselves on our wall. I just received this email from their grandmother, Kathy Mazzella.
Hi Megan, Here are the photos I took of our granddaughters and nieces at the library a week or so ago. They all have been coming up to Lake George yearly since they were born. We started out at Diamond Village and were able to stay together at O’Connor’s. On the pillow you will find Haley and Lauryn English; Kylie and Morgan Masterson and the youngest, Jolene McKeown whose mother has the “Pfau” Lake George quilt. They look forward to seeing you again next year and Ted and I will probably see you when we visit again in early Aug. Kathy Mazzella
The Library Book Club will meet on Tuesday, December 11at 6:30pm at Fran Taitel’s house to discuss Christmas Bells by Jennifer Chiaverini.
“In 1860, the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow family celebrated Christmas at Craigie House, their home in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The publication of Longfellow’s classic Revolutionary War poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride,” was less than a month hence, and the country’s grave political unrest weighed heavily on his mind. Yet with his beloved wife, Fanny, and their five adored children at his side, the delights of the season prevailed. In present-day Boston, a dedicated teacher in the Watertown public school system is stunned by somber holiday tidings. Sophia’s music program has been sacrificed to budget cuts, and she worries not only about her impending unemployment but also about the consequences to her underprivileged students. At the church where she volunteers as music director, Sophia tries to forget her cares as she leads the children’s choir in rehearsal for a Christmas Eve concert. Inspired to honor a local artist, Sophia has chosen a carol set to a poem by Longfellow, moved by the glorious words he penned one Christmas Day long ago, even as he suffered great loss. Christmas Bells chronicles the events of 1863, when the peace and contentment of Longfellow’s family circle was suddenly, tragically broken, cutting even deeper than the privations of wartime. Through the pain of profound loss and hardship, Longfellow’s patriotism never failed, nor did the power of his language. “Christmas Bells,” the poem he wrote that holiday, lives on, spoken as verse and sung as a hymn.”
“Movies for Grown-Ups” will continue on Wednesday, January 16th at 6:30 pm. When we get closer to the date, I will choose what movie to show. Let me know if there are any movies you are interested inseeing and I will see if we can get a copy of it.
