rec_painters_palette.GIF 9:00 AM  -  9:00 PM Art Exhibit
MoMo Art & Design by Moshe Abraham
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Moshe was born In Baghdad, Iraq. His family moved to Israel in 1950, when he was just 6 months old. He spent most of his young life in Israel where he grew up. Moshe as a young boy was always interested in building and creating things. Moshe joined the Israeli Army at age 18. After his service in the Army, he came to the United States. It was after living in the United States that he became involved in carpentry and finishing. This is where he transformed himself into the artist that he is today. He doesn’t use canvas for his artwork. It is made from different varieties of wood and woodworking tools. Each piece is designed with a contemporary flair and is relevant to today. All artwork can be customized to the client’s specifications, color and size. 

To preview some of Moshe’s work please visit: momoart.net

Please join us for a once in a lifetime art experience

Beyond Courage
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

A Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) Program

Beyond Courage: The Untold Story of Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust

Meet author Doreen Rappaport when she discusses her stirring chronicle, Beyond Courage: The Untold Story of Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust, bringing to light the courage of countless Jews who organized to sabotage the Nazis and help other Jews during the Holocaust.

Through twenty-one meticulously researched accounts — some chronicled in book form for the first time — Beyond Courage illuminates the defiance of tens of thousands of Jews across eleven Nazi-occupied countries during World War II. In answer to the genocidal madness that was Hitler’s Holocaust, the only response they could abide was resistance, and their greatest weapons were courage, ingenuity, the will to survive, and the resolve to save others or to die trying.

Doreen Rappaport is an award-winning author of children’s books known to educators, parents, children and young adult readers for thirty-eight fiction and non-fiction books that celebrate multiculturalism, the retelling of folktales and myths, history, the lives of world leaders and the stories of those she calls ‘not-yet-celebrated.’ Beyond Courage: The Untold Story of Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust (Candlewick Press, Sept. 2012), a five year journey for Rappaport, is her most ambitious project to date. Her first crossover book for young adults and adults, it was written to inspire a wider public with the stories of the heroic resisters. I want to write stories that empower kids to know that other people empowered themselves. If I have a mission, that's my mission! - Doreen Rappaport

Books will be available for sale and signing.

This book and presentation is geared to ADULTS and YOUNG ADULTS

Improv is the art of making up funny stuff on the spur of the moment. If you’ve seen the TV show Whose Line is it Anyway?, you’ve seen a lot of the games we do – World’s Worst, Dating Game, Party Quirks, and many, many more. Most sketch comedians you’ve seen on TV, from Saturday Night Live to the voice cast of The Simpsons and Flo from those Progressive Insurance commercials have training in improv – it’s a great way to build your comedy skills, or just become more confident performing in front of a group. No experience necessary – just come down and play with us!

For teens 7th grade and up.  No registration required, just come down!

Improv is the art of making up funny stuff on the spur of the moment. If you’ve seen the TV show Whose Line is it Anyway?, you’ve seen a lot of the games we do – World’s Worst, Dating Game, Party Quirks, and many, many more. Most sketch comedians you’ve seen on TV, from Saturday Night Live to the voice cast of The Simpsons and Flo from those Progressive Insurance commercials have training in improv – it’s a great way to build your comedy skills, or just become more confident performing in front of a group. No experience necessary – just come down and play with us!

For teens 7th grade and up.  No registration required, just come down!

(2004, 131 minutes.  Rated PG-13).  Starring Hugh Jackman, Kate Beckinsale, Richard Roxburgh, Shuler Hensley, Elena Anaya, Kevin J. O'Connor.

Count Dracula (Roxburgh) has gotten hold of Dr. Frankenstein's research and kidnapped a werewolf.  Famed monster hunter Van Helsing (Jackman) is recruited by the Vatican to find out what the Count is up to.  The Frankenstein Monster (Hensley, who weirdly also played the Monster in Broadway's YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN), Igor (O'Connor), and an attractive female monster hunter (Beckinsale) soon become involved, and chaos ensues -- expect machine-gun crossbows, lots of odd-looking CGI, and horse-drawn carriages that crash and explode (yes, really).  From the director of THE MUMMY and DEEP RISING.

No registration needed.  Free of charge.

DALLAS BUYERS CLUB

Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto, Jennifer Garner

Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof's free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive. Shunned and ostracized by many old friends and bereft of government-approved medicines, he decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Bypassing the establishment, he joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts and established a hugely successful 'buyers' club.'

2013, 117 minutes, rated R

Priority seating given to Great Neck Residents. Please bring your Library Card or Driver's License. Ten (10) minutes before the film begins no seat may be held and Non-Resident's will be seated if space permits.

Improv is the art of making up funny stuff on the spur of the moment. If you’ve seen the TV show Whose Line is it Anyway?, you’ve seen a lot of the games we do – World’s Worst, Dating Game, Party Quirks, and many, many more. Most sketch comedians you’ve seen on TV, from Saturday Night Live to the voice cast of The Simpsons and Flo from those Progressive Insurance commercials have training in improv – it’s a great way to build your comedy skills, or just become more confident performing in front of a group. No experience necessary – just come down and play with us!

The New York Nobody Knows
Walking 6,000 Miles in the City
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

As a kid growing up in Manhattan, William Helmreich played a game with his father they called "Last Stop." They would pick a subway line and ride it to its final destination, and explore the neighborhood there. Decades later, Helmreich teaches university courses about New York, and his love for exploring the city is as strong as ever.

Putting his feet to the test, he decided that the only way to truly understand New York was to walk virtually every block of all five boroughs--an astonishing 6,000 miles. His epic journey lasted four years and took him to every corner of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Helmreich spoke with hundreds of New Yorkers from every part of the globe and from every walk of life, including Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former mayors Rudolph Giuliani, David Dinkins, and Edward Koch. Hear the stories of The New York Nobody Knows.

Improv is the art of making up funny stuff on the spur of the moment. If you’ve seen the TV show Whose Line is it Anyway?, you’ve seen a lot of the games we do – World’s Worst, Dating Game, Party Quirks, and many, many more. Most sketch comedians you’ve seen on TV, from Saturday Night Live to the voice cast of The Simpsons and Flo from those Progressive Insurance commercials have training in improv – it’s a great way to build your comedy skills, or just become more confident performing in front of a group. No experience necessary – just come down and play with us!

    Contact: Jonathan Aubrey   466-8055, ext. 219   jaubrey@greatnecklibrary.org
   

Porochista Khakpour is the Persian-American author of the highly acclaimed novel Sons and Other Flammable Objects, about generational conflicts and bonds in a Persian-American family. Her highly anticipated new novel, The Last Illusion (out May 13th), has already received many favorable pre-publication reviews from writers, readers and critics. Claire Messud wrote of it, “Utterly original and compelling, The Last Illusion weaves myth with very contemporary American neurosis to create a bittersweet poetry all its own. This ambitious, exciting literary adventure is at once grotesque, amusing, deeply sad - and wonderful, too.” Full of surprising and keen humor, insight, satire and bite, The Last Illusion tells the story of a strangely tortured soul, and the people and worlds in Iran and America that have warped, nurtured and redeemed him. Join author Porochista Khakpour for what promises to be a very stimulating discussion. This program will include author readings, audience Q&A, and a book sale and signing.

But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling, and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.

2013, 106 minutes, rated PG-13

Levels presents several fully-staged theatrical productions each year, all directed, produced, designed and performed by students 7th grade through college age.

David Yaghoubi Miniatures
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

The word miniature, derived from the Latin minium, red lead, is a picture in an ancient or medieval illuminated manuscript; the simple decoration of the early codices having been miniated or delineated with that pigment. The generally small scale of the medieval pictures has led secondly to an etymological confusion of the term with minuteness and to its application to small paintings especially portrait miniatures, which did however grow from the same tradition and at least initially use similar techniques.

Apart from the Western and Byzantine traditions, there is another group of Asian traditions, which is generally more illustrative in nature, and from origins in manuscript book decoration also developed into single-sheet small paintings to be kept in albums, which are also called miniatures, as the Western equivalents in watercolor and other mediums are not. These include Persian miniatures, and their Mughal, Ottoman and other Indian offshoots.

    Contact: Jonathan Aubrey   466-8055, ext. 219   jaubrey@greatnecklibrary.org
   

JESSICA SOFFER will discuss her novel, Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots, about accepting the people we choose to love, the people we have to love, the families we’re given, and the families we make.  Ms. Soffer's widely hailed first novel tells the story of two women adrift in New York, Victoria, an Iraqi Jewish immigrant widow, and Lorca, an "almost orphan."  Each is searching for someone she’s lost.  The novel speaks to how, even in moments of grief and darkness, there are joys waiting nearby.  Lorca spends her life poring over cookbooks, making croissants and chocolat chaud, and seeking out rare ingredients, all to earn the love of her distracted chef of a mother, who is now packing her off to boarding school.  In one last effort to prove herself indispensable, Lorca resolves to track down the recipe for her mother’s ideal meal, the prized Middle Eastern dish called masgouf.  Victoria, grappling with her husband’s death, has been dreaming of the daughter they gave up forty years before.  An Iraqi Jewish immigrant who used to run a restaurant, she starts teaching cooking lessons.  Lorca signs up.  Together, they make cardamom pistachio cookies, baklava, and kubba with squash.  They also begin to suspect they are connected by more than their love of food.  Soon they must reckon with the past, the future, and the truth - whatever it might be.  "Bukra fil mish mish," the Arabic saying goes: "Tomorrow, apricots may bloom."

JESSICA SOFFER earned her M.F.A. at Hunter College.  Her work has appeared in Granta, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Vogue, among other publications.  She teaches fiction at Connecticut College and lives in New York City.

Seating for this event for residents of the Great Neck School District is on a first come, first seated basis.  Seating for non-residents will begin 15 minutes before the program begins, if seats are available.

TWO PERFORMANCES:
Matinee at 3:00 p.m.
Evening Show at 
8:00 p.m.

Running Time: approx. 90 minutes.

Levels presents several theatrical productions each year, all directed, designed, produced and performed by students 7th grade through college age.  “Next Stage” Productions are put together outside of Levels by advanced students, created and rehearsed independently, using Levels as a co-producer and performance venue.

Our latest "Next Stage" offering combines two one-act comedies by award-winning author Don Zolidis:

IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S ME: Whether your boyfriend is a Canadian secret agent or monk in training, or your girlfriend is a psychic or pathological liar, one thing is for sure: they are about to dump you.  This series of scenes explores the painful art of breaking-up in wildly hilarious fashion, and will make you feel relieved not to be on the receiving end of those five fatal words.

MISS POLLY'S INSTITUTE FOR CRIMINALLY DAMAGED YOUNG LADIES PUTS ON A SHOW: Miss Mylenbush, the semi-hysterical head of the theatre department at Miss Polly's Institute for Criminally Damaged Young Ladies, is about to put on the greatest tragedy ever written: Hamlet.  The trouble is, her actors are a bunch of teenage girls teetering between delusions of grandeur and highly illegal behavior.  When her actors revolt against her autocratic direction and decide to stage the play their way, disturbing hilarity ensues.

Directed by Kayla Gonzalez and Rachel Klein.  Produced by Sally Bishop.


Admission is free.  Tickets are intended to guarantee seating, and can be requested beginning Monday, May 26 at the Circulation Desks of all Great Neck Library facilities.  Doors open 45 minutes before showtime for ticketholders and 15 minutes before showtime for non-ticketholders.

Open to the Public.

Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters

The warning signs of Alzheimer's disease are often dismissed as side effects of normal aging.  If you or someone you know is experiencing memory loss or behavioral changes, it's time to learn the facts. Early detection gives you a chance to explore treatments that may provide some relief of symptoms and help you maintain a level of independence longer, to begin drug therapy, enroll in clinical studies and plan for the future.

Attend this interactive workshop to learn the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's disease. We'll separate myth from reality and address commonly-held fears about Alzheimer's in America. Hear from people who have the disease and find out how to recognize the signs in yourself and others.

SAVING MR. BANKS

When P.L. Travers travels from London to Hollywood in 1961 to finally discuss Walt Disney's desire to bring her beloved character, Mary Poppins, to the motion picture screen (a quest he began in the 1940s as a promise to his two daughters), Disney meets a prim, uncompromising sexagenarian not only suspect of the impresario's concept for the film, but a woman struggling with her own past. During her stay in California, Travers reflects back on her difficult childhood in 1906 Australia.
