    Colleen Hintz will give a talk on slavery, life on the plantations and how communication among the slaves continued even as the slave owners outlawed it.

    With this perspective in mind, learn the story of the secret quilt code of the Underground Railroad. We will discover how native African traditions and fabrics were woven together with traditional early American quilt blocks and Masonic images to create a mnemonic and visual code that would lead countless hundreds of slaves to freedom in Canada… and all of this hidden in plain view! It is a story of remarkable ingenuity, courage, spirit, strength and determination

    The quilts on display are recreations of the Secret Quilt Code of the Underground Railroad.  Her work can be seen across the US and throughout the world.

    Back to school is the perfect time to practice your reading!

    Meet Zoe, Turner, Omega, Clover and Rusty -- Janie is on vacation this month! -- at Read to a Dog on Saturday, September 12th from 11:00 am to Noon. This program is open to all ages and abilities, both readers and pre-readers. Feel free to read together as a family!

    Reading aloud to non-judgmental listeners (like dogs!) boosts confidence and improves reading and recitation skills. Moreover, reading together helps to reinforce letter recognition and vocabulary, and it creates a stronger bond with books. It's also a lot of fun! Don't believe us? Check out these great photos from our summer session. 

    Ready to sign up? Cool! Please register below. Woof!

    “Female Spies” is written and performed by Mary Ryzuk and Sharon Moran.   Their performance is a ‘living documentary’ that both entertains and educates the audience about the lives of the brave, dedicated and unique women who risked life and limb to help a cause in which they deeply believed. From Anna Strong’s espionage during the Revolutionary War to Emma Edmonds and Belle Boyd’s Civil War experiences to Julia Child, Marlene Dietrich and more from WW 2 up until present day, the adventures of these Undercover Angels comes  to life in an unforgettable performance presentation through stories, anecdotes, power point art and dialogue. 

    Do women innately have the qualities necessary to be successful spies?  You can judge for yourself as you listen to the presentation.

    Peter will be focusing on pieces from his new recording 'Tales From The Desert' on a variety of 6 and 12 string guitars in unique tunings utilizing subtle ambient electronics and looping in real time. The program encourages questions from the audience and will also include some of the history and evolution of steel string guitar playing over the last 50+ years.  Fans of fellow guitarists such as Leo Kottke, the British school (Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Davy Graham), Ralph Towner, Michael Hedges and Pierre Bensusan will enjoy this music.
