                      THE SHAKESPEARE THEATRE OF NEW JERSEY LIVE

                      The Mahwah Public Library presents The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s Next Stage

                      Taming of the Shrew is a wild and woolly comedy that is the perfect match for the fast-paced
                      style of the Next Stage Ensemble (as directed by stage combat specialist Doug West). This
                      classic battle of the sexes is also a heartfelt romantic comedy in which apparent opposites
                      discover just how much they have in common. (Recommended for ages 12 and up).

                       On Tuesday August 4, 2009 at 7:00 PM The Shakespeare Theatre of

Homer. Director Jason King Jones, who began with the company as an intern in 1999, has
developed this fast-paced, creative retelling of key scenes from Homer’s epic poem The
Odyssey, one of the earliest masterpieces of Western literature. Following the fall of Troy,
the clever Odysseus and his band of warriors and sailors begin a dangerous journey home.
Storms, spirits, a Cyclops and a sorceress are just a few of the adventures that await them
as they try to reach the shores of Ithaca. (Recommended for ages 8 and up).

Come join us for great theatre — LIVE — the way that it was meant to be enjoyed. Each summer abridged classics are
presented by early-career actors from the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey. The Next Stage eNSemble program
brings live theatre into New Jersey communities. No tickets are necessary for these programs. Seats are free and on
a “first come” basis. Latecomers will be seated during appropriate breaks.

                                                    made popular over 70 years ago, the big band swing sound has
                                                    a popularity that spans the years. Swing has recently been
                                                    rediscovered by a new generation. Originally founded by John

                                                    George Shearing and other major recording artists, the Skyliners
                                                    Big Swing Band has, since 1952, remained true in style and
                                                    composition — performing only the original arrangements of the
                                                    great band leaders. The Sunday Concert will present the works of
                                                    great band leaders of the 30’s through the 90’s with names like
Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Chuck Mangione, and Stan Getz. For many years, the
Skyliners have given numerous concerts and dances, many of them in the New York metropolitan area. The Skyliners
have performed at the major hotels like the Plaza, the St. Moritz, the Biltmore, the Essex, and the St. Regis, as well as
private clubs, schools, and universities. The orchestra is currently under the direction of Joe Andreoli and conductor
William Garvin, a graduate of the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. Mr. Garvin is an award winning professional music
teacher who has for a number of years conducted pit-orchestras and performed with major orchestras and jazz bands.
Experiences of other orchestra members are wide-ranging, with participation in other orchestras, jazz and classical
music ensembles, or as soloists. The orchestra’s featured vocalist is Susan Brady, who sang with the Sammy Kaye
and Lester Lanin Orchestras. The concert is free. No tickets are necessary. Seats are on a “first come” basis.

EXPLORE HE, SHE AND IT

Professor Kathleen Fowler, professor and lecturer at Ramapo College will discuss Marge
Piercy’s He, She and It on Wednesday September 23, 2009 at7:00 PM. The time is the middle
of the twenty-first century. The place is what used to be North America, now Norika: a vast toxic
wasteland dotted with huge environmental domes enclaves of the monolithic corporations that
have replace governments; the far fewer “free towns,” independent settlements where the
remarkable technology of the age has not yet been turned against the individual; and the “Glop,”
the overwhelmed stretches of megalopolis that is violent, festering warrens ruled by feuding
gangs and warlords. Join us for a discussion of He, She and It where Marge Piercy creates
an extraordinary vision of our future and ties it to the past. Kathleen Fowler is an Associate
Professor of English, Women’s Studies, Writing, and Science Fiction at Ramapo College of New
Jersey. The public is invited to join in on the discussion. You are encouraged to read He, She
and It before attending the program. Call or visit the library to find out how to arrange for a copy
of the book. This program is free. No tickets are necessary. Seats are on a “first come” basis.

ON DISPLAY

“Art of the Spirit” paintings of Mahwah resident Michael A. Pompa will be featured during the months of July and
August. Mr. Pompa is a retired contractor, but has always enjoyed painting as a creative outlet. He studied art at the
Brooklyn Academy of Art in New York. His appreciation for the beauty of life, respect for the human qualities of life
and his keen sense of humor are all evident in his renderings. Mr. Pompa suffered detachments of the retinas in both
eyes in 2003 and is now legally blind. What came so easily to him before he lost his normal vision is now a struggle to
accomplish. Using a variety of vision-enhancing tools and preferring oil paint as his medium, he has changed his style
of painting and feeling for the subject matter he envisions and paints. While he still appreciates the renderings of
beautiful landscapes and still lifes, he has come to believe that art should express that which has more to do with the
soul and the heart, rather than the visual beauty that a camera can capture so well.
“Summer Reading Club” materials and prizes will be on display during the months of June, July, and August.
The Children’s Reading Club theme this summer is “Be Creative @ Your Library” and the Young Adult Theme is
“Read! Think! Create! @ the Library”. All Mahwah children and teens are encouraged to join us for a summer of fun
and reading.
“Watercolors” by Mahwah resident Joyce Lipman will be on display during the months of September and October.
“Model Railroading” Trains from the Mahwah Museum Donald Cooper collection will be on display during the
months of September and October.

              of how to write a resume, what to include and what to leave out, and words that will update your
              resume. Then there will be time to work on your resume and (as time permits) get one-on-one resume

CELEBRATE THE 400TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE HUDSON RIVER

The Mahwah Public Library invites you to celebrate the 400th Anniversary of Henry
Hudson’s exploration of the Hudson River at “Henry Hudson and His World: The Place
Where America Began” with Historian Tony Nappo on Tuesday September 1, 2009 at
7:00 PM. During Hudson's three-week exploration in September 1609 Hudson claimed
the river, fertile valley, and riches of timber and beaver for the Netherlands. Within 20
years a thriving colony and cosmopolitan city (New Amsterdam, now Manhattan) had been
established. Discover this vital, little known period in pre-English colonial America when
New Amsterdam became the gateway to a vast mixture of people that would come to define
a nation. Don't miss this entertaining and informative multi-media program with historian
Tony Nappo. Part of his presentation will include information from the book The Island at
the Center of the World: The Epic Story of Dutch Manhattan and the Forgotten Colony that Shaped America by
Russell Shorto. Tony Nappo recently retired as a teacher in the Middletown New York City School District. He holds
an MA in Soviet-American Relations from John Carroll University, as well as an MA in Instructional Technology from
the New York Institute of Technology. Tony has taught American History, World History, International Politics, and
Futuristics to secondary and college students for over 35 years. He is excited by the opportunity to share new insights
and historical interpretation surrounding the earliest settlement of New Amsterdam, and its evolution to the New York
City of today. “Henry Hudson and His World” is free. No tickets are necessary. Seats are on a “first come” basis.

                                                                              100 Ridge Road

be entered into a distribution list. When important library issues arise,     Telephone (201) 529-READ
BCCLS will email the Library Champions. The Champions can then                FAX (201) 529-9027
take appropriate action such as phone calls, emails to Legislators or         http://mahwah.bccls.org/
simply talking up the library to their neighbors. Join on “bccls” page.
