    Contact: Elizabeth Krebs   412-531-1912   krebse@einetwork.net
   

This group reads selections from a wide variety of mystery genres.

Selections for 2014:

January 21, 2014 – Butterfly Clues / Kate Ellison -- engaging mystery starring a teenage girl with obsessive-compulsive disorder layered on top of her almost supernatural loneliness

February 18, 2014 – Standing in Another Man’s Grave / Ian Rankin -- Rankin has moved on since Rebus’ retirement party, beginning a new series starring another Edinburgh cop, Malcolm Fox, but Fox couldn’t be more different from Rebus: a reformed drunk rather than a functioning one; a rule follower rather than a habitual rule breaker; an internal-affairs officer rather than a detective. So who could resist the temptation to put them together in the same novel?

March 18, 2014 - Shadow Account / Stephen Frey – thriller featuring Connor Ashby, a young Wall Street player who uncovers corporate conspiracy and White House intrigue

April 15, 2014 - Bad Day for Sorry / Sophie Littlefield-- introduces Stella Hardesty, a widow and survivor of domestic violence, who owns a sewing shop in a sleepy Missouri town. On the side, Stella solves problems and metes out justice on behalf of battered women,

May 20, 2014 - China Lake / Meg Gardiner -- Evan Delaney learns that not only has her ex- sister-in-law joined a religious cult, but the unstable young mother plans to regain custody of her son and disappear with him into the fold of the fanatical group

June 17, 2014 – Woman in White / Wilkie Colins -- large and sweeping, with skillfully drawn characters, lovely passages and absolutely haunting scenes, a fully formed 19th century mystery novel with all the trimmings

July 15, 2014 – Shanghai Factor / Charles McCarry -- absorbing tale of global skullduggery that leaves the reader guessing at every turn

August 19, 2014 – The Doorbell Rang (Nero Wolfe) / Rex Stout -- Wolfe and his sidekick Archie Goodwin face the malevolent forces of J. Edgar Hoover and his FBI minions. Luckily, Stout's heart and his writing style are more than equal to the challenge.

September 16, 2014 – Case Histories / Kate Atkinson -- Private detective Jackson Brodie finds himself entangled in three distinctly different cases with remarkable connections between them.

October 21, 2014 - Simple / Kathleen George – set in Pittsburgh featuring a fully realized cast of characters, a close-knit group of detectives who deal with shades of gray in crime-solving.

November 18, 2014 - Constant Lovers / Chris Nickson -- July, 1732: On a hot summer morning, Richard Nottingham, Constable of Leeds, is called out when a young woman is found stabbed to death among the ruins of Kirkstall Abbey.

December 16, 2014 – Beautiful Place to Die / Malla Nunn -- darkly romantic crime novel set in 1950s apartheid South Africa, featuring Detective Emmanuel Cooper

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

This ongoing series is an in-depth examination and evaluation in an attempt to draw conclusions from the historical, political, and economic roots of the Great Depression and the Great Financial Crisis of 2008.  It will be an innovative, interactive program which will attempt to determine whether the same processes, problems, and structures which led to the Great Depression contributed to the GFC of 2008.  In the coming year we will be examining the period between 1964 and 2014 to bring our historical context up to date and to provide some in-depth understanding of the economic, social, political and military issues confronting our world in the coming decades

To date we have explored two texts:

  • Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in our Time by Carroll Quigley
  • The Gods of Money: Wall Street and the Death of the American Century by F. William Engdahl

We are now beginning coverage of Steve Keen’s Debunking Economics: The Naked Emperor Dethroned beginning with the November 2013 meeting.  Additional readings and articles will be assigned as the program progresses.  As we begin discussions on the issues to be faced in the coming decades, we will proceed as if we were a non-partisan think-tank attempting to develop and provide policy advice to national leaders.  This should be an entertaining exercise where all participants will be afforded the opportunity to provide leadership and guidance.

For more information about this program, please contact John Hemington at jehemington@verizon.net. Mr. Hemington is a retired attorney and IT director with over 40 years’ independent study of economic and political power.

This group reads selections from a wide variety of mystery genres.

Selections for 2014:

January 21, 2014 – Butterfly Clues / Kate Ellison -- engaging mystery starring a teenage girl with obsessive-compulsive disorder layered on top of her almost supernatural loneliness

February 18, 2014 – Standing in Another Man’s Grave / Ian Rankin -- Rankin has moved on since Rebus’ retirement party, beginning a new series starring another Edinburgh cop, Malcolm Fox, but Fox couldn’t be more different from Rebus: a reformed drunk rather than a functioning one; a rule follower rather than a habitual rule breaker; an internal-affairs officer rather than a detective. So who could resist the temptation to put them together in the same novel?

March 18, 2014 - Shadow Account / Stephen Frey – thriller featuring Connor Ashby, a young Wall Street player who uncovers corporate conspiracy and White House intrigue

April 15, 2014 - Bad Day for Sorry / Sophie Littlefield-- introduces Stella Hardesty, a widow and survivor of domestic violence, who owns a sewing shop in a sleepy Missouri town. On the side, Stella solves problems and metes out justice on behalf of battered women,

May 20, 2014 - China Lake / Meg Gardiner -- Evan Delaney learns that not only has her ex- sister-in-law joined a religious cult, but the unstable young mother plans to regain custody of her son and disappear with him into the fold of the fanatical group

June 17, 2014 – Woman in White / Wilkie Colins -- large and sweeping, with skillfully drawn characters, lovely passages and absolutely haunting scenes, a fully formed 19th century mystery novel with all the trimmings

July 15, 2014 – Shanghai Factor / Charles McCarry -- absorbing tale of global skullduggery that leaves the reader guessing at every turn

August 19, 2014 – The Doorbell Rang (Nero Wolfe) / Rex Stout -- Wolfe and his sidekick Archie Goodwin face the malevolent forces of J. Edgar Hoover and his FBI minions. Luckily, Stout's heart and his writing style are more than equal to the challenge.

September 16, 2014 – Case Histories / Kate Atkinson -- Private detective Jackson Brodie finds himself entangled in three distinctly different cases with remarkable connections between them.

October 21, 2014 - Simple / Kathleen George – set in Pittsburgh featuring a fully realized cast of characters, a close-knit group of detectives who deal with shades of gray in crime-solving.

November 18, 2014 - Constant Lovers / Chris Nickson -- July, 1732: On a hot summer morning, Richard Nottingham, Constable of Leeds, is called out when a young woman is found stabbed to death among the ruins of Kirkstall Abbey.

December 16, 2014 – Beautiful Place to Die / Malla Nunn -- darkly romantic crime novel set in 1950s apartheid South Africa, featuring Detective Emmanuel Cooper

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

There are lots of scam artists out there and lots of people too willing to trust them. Seniors are often the target of these scams. The older generation is thought to be more trusting - raised to believe that a man's word is his bond... and many have built up a nice nest egg from years of saving and investing. But by knowing what to look out for, and what not to fall for, you can keep your money and your belongings safe from greedy hands.

This ongoing series is an in-depth examination and evaluation in an attempt to draw conclusions from the historical, political, and economic roots of the Great Depression and the Great Financial Crisis of 2008.  It will be an innovative, interactive program which will attempt to determine whether the same processes, problems, and structures which led to the Great Depression contributed to the GFC of 2008.  In the coming year we will be examining the period between 1964 and 2014 to bring our historical context up to date and to provide some in-depth understanding of the economic, social, political and military issues confronting our world in the coming decades

To date we have explored two texts:

  • Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in our Time by Carroll Quigley
  • The Gods of Money: Wall Street and the Death of the American Century by F. William Engdahl

We are now beginning coverage of Steve Keen’s Debunking Economics: The Naked Emperor Dethroned beginning with the November 2013 meeting.  Additional readings and articles will be assigned as the program progresses.  As we begin discussions on the issues to be faced in the coming decades, we will proceed as if we were a non-partisan think-tank attempting to develop and provide policy advice to national leaders.  This should be an entertaining exercise where all participants will be afforded the opportunity to provide leadership and guidance.

For more information about this program, please contact John Hemington at jehemington@verizon.net. Mr. Hemington is a retired attorney and IT director with over 40 years’ independent study of economic and political power.

    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

 After a brief history of Allegheny and Homestead Cemeteries we discuss Pre-planning Your Final Arrangements. We review how to prepare and organize the needed information when there is a death in the family. Attendees will receive a Personal Planning Portfolio to organize vital information as well as a list of 67 Things That Must Be Done. The portfolio helps to organize information regarding items such as wills, life insurance policies, investments, veteran's information, social security, obituaries, vital information, and the ever important 67 Things That Must Be Completed. This is a valuable tool that can be used to help organize information and documents needed when there is a death in the family. A death in the family is difficult enough without placing these burdens on the shoulders of those we love. This portfolio is a must for surviving family members. Pre-planning provides peace of mind.  Presented by Jim Jozefowicz, family services counselor.

Tonight:  Special Screening of the French-language film, "La Rafle." 

Film description:
On July 16th, 1942, French authorities carried out an extensive raid of Jews in greater Paris, resulting in the arrest of more than 13,000 people including 4,000 children. After spending several miserable days in the Vélodrome d'Hiver stadium at the apex of summer with little food or water, families were deported to internment camps elsewhere in France and then, finally, to Auschwitz - never to be seen again. Audiences of all ages are discovering writer-director Rose Bosch s powerful portrayal of France s infamous Vel d' Hiv Roundup, featuring international stars Jean Reno (The Da Vinci Code, The Professional) and the luminous Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds, Now You See Me) in a subtly moving, career-defining performance. With its emotionally astute and sensitive exploration of a long taboo subject - Jacques Chirac issued a public apology to the citizens of France only in 1995- the raid, its political backdrop and the exquisite and poignant beauty of Paris during wartime are brought to stirring life in this modern French classic. 

Practice your French in an informal setting.  New members always welcome to this language group!

lib_book_quill 7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM Mt. Lebanon Public Library presents An Evening With Lisa Scottoline    
    Contact: Cynthia Richey   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

Thursday, October 16, at 7:00 p.m.in the Mellon Middle School Auditorium.  A V.I.P. Reception to follow at 9:00 p.m.

 

Lisa Scottoline is the New York Times bestselling author and Edgar award-winning author of more than twenty novels published in more than thirty-five countries. She also writes a weekly column with her daughter Francesca Serritella for the Philadelphia Inquirer titled "Chick Wit" which is a witty and fun take on life from a woman's perspective. These stories, along with many other never-before published stories, have been collected in four books including Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog, which has been optioned for television.

 

Lisa reviews popular fiction and non-fiction, and her reviews have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Philadelphia Inquirer. She has served as President of Mystery Writers of America and has taught a course she developed titled "Justice and Fiction" at The University of Pennsylvania Law School, her alma mater. Lisa is a die-hard Eagles fan, and a good cook. Nothing makes her happier than spending time with her daughter. She lives in the Philadelphia area with an array of disobedient pets, and she wouldn't have it any other way.

 

Lisa will be the inaugural speaker at Mt. Lebanon Public Library’s Joseph Wertheim Memorial Author Lecture, an annual event to honor the memory of Joe Wertheim, an avid reader and long-time library patron who had served nine years on the library board, including a term as President, and the President of the Friends of Mt. Lebanon Public Library.

This group reads selections from a wide variety of mystery genres.

Selections for 2014:

January 21, 2014 – Butterfly Clues / Kate Ellison -- engaging mystery starring a teenage girl with obsessive-compulsive disorder layered on top of her almost supernatural loneliness

February 18, 2014 – Standing in Another Man’s Grave / Ian Rankin -- Rankin has moved on since Rebus’ retirement party, beginning a new series starring another Edinburgh cop, Malcolm Fox, but Fox couldn’t be more different from Rebus: a reformed drunk rather than a functioning one; a rule follower rather than a habitual rule breaker; an internal-affairs officer rather than a detective. So who could resist the temptation to put them together in the same novel?

March 18, 2014 - Shadow Account / Stephen Frey – thriller featuring Connor Ashby, a young Wall Street player who uncovers corporate conspiracy and White House intrigue

April 15, 2014 - Bad Day for Sorry / Sophie Littlefield-- introduces Stella Hardesty, a widow and survivor of domestic violence, who owns a sewing shop in a sleepy Missouri town. On the side, Stella solves problems and metes out justice on behalf of battered women,

May 20, 2014 - China Lake / Meg Gardiner -- Evan Delaney learns that not only has her ex- sister-in-law joined a religious cult, but the unstable young mother plans to regain custody of her son and disappear with him into the fold of the fanatical group

June 17, 2014 – Woman in White / Wilkie Colins -- large and sweeping, with skillfully drawn characters, lovely passages and absolutely haunting scenes, a fully formed 19th century mystery novel with all the trimmings

July 15, 2014 – Shanghai Factor / Charles McCarry -- absorbing tale of global skullduggery that leaves the reader guessing at every turn

August 19, 2014 – The Doorbell Rang (Nero Wolfe) / Rex Stout -- Wolfe and his sidekick Archie Goodwin face the malevolent forces of J. Edgar Hoover and his FBI minions. Luckily, Stout's heart and his writing style are more than equal to the challenge.

September 16, 2014 – Case Histories / Kate Atkinson -- Private detective Jackson Brodie finds himself entangled in three distinctly different cases with remarkable connections between them.

October 21, 2014 - Simple / Kathleen George – set in Pittsburgh featuring a fully realized cast of characters, a close-knit group of detectives who deal with shades of gray in crime-solving.

November 18, 2014 - Constant Lovers / Chris Nickson -- July, 1732: On a hot summer morning, Richard Nottingham, Constable of Leeds, is called out when a young woman is found stabbed to death among the ruins of Kirkstall Abbey.

December 16, 2014 – Beautiful Place to Die / Malla Nunn -- darkly romantic crime novel set in 1950s apartheid South Africa, featuring Detective Emmanuel Cooper

This ongoing series is an in-depth examination and evaluation in an attempt to draw conclusions from the historical, political, and economic roots of the Great Depression and the Great Financial Crisis of 2008.  It will be an innovative, interactive program which will attempt to determine whether the same processes, problems, and structures which led to the Great Depression contributed to the GFC of 2008.  In the coming year we will be examining the period between 1964 and 2014 to bring our historical context up to date and to provide some in-depth understanding of the economic, social, political and military issues confronting our world in the coming decades

To date we have explored two texts:

  • Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in our Time by Carroll Quigley
  • The Gods of Money: Wall Street and the Death of the American Century by F. William Engdahl

We are now beginning coverage of Steve Keen’s Debunking Economics: The Naked Emperor Dethroned beginning with the November 2013 meeting.  Additional readings and articles will be assigned as the program progresses.  As we begin discussions on the issues to be faced in the coming decades, we will proceed as if we were a non-partisan think-tank attempting to develop and provide policy advice to national leaders.  This should be an entertaining exercise where all participants will be afforded the opportunity to provide leadership and guidance.

For more information about this program, please contact John Hemington at jehemington@verizon.net. Mr. Hemington is a retired attorney and IT director with over 40 years’ independent study of economic and political power.

This group reads selections from a wide variety of mystery genres.

Selections for 2014:

January 21, 2014 – Butterfly Clues / Kate Ellison -- engaging mystery starring a teenage girl with obsessive-compulsive disorder layered on top of her almost supernatural loneliness

February 18, 2014 – Standing in Another Man’s Grave / Ian Rankin -- Rankin has moved on since Rebus’ retirement party, beginning a new series starring another Edinburgh cop, Malcolm Fox, but Fox couldn’t be more different from Rebus: a reformed drunk rather than a functioning one; a rule follower rather than a habitual rule breaker; an internal-affairs officer rather than a detective. So who could resist the temptation to put them together in the same novel?

March 18, 2014 - Shadow Account / Stephen Frey – thriller featuring Connor Ashby, a young Wall Street player who uncovers corporate conspiracy and White House intrigue

April 15, 2014 - Bad Day for Sorry / Sophie Littlefield-- introduces Stella Hardesty, a widow and survivor of domestic violence, who owns a sewing shop in a sleepy Missouri town. On the side, Stella solves problems and metes out justice on behalf of battered women,

May 20, 2014 - China Lake / Meg Gardiner -- Evan Delaney learns that not only has her ex- sister-in-law joined a religious cult, but the unstable young mother plans to regain custody of her son and disappear with him into the fold of the fanatical group

June 17, 2014 – Woman in White / Wilkie Colins -- large and sweeping, with skillfully drawn characters, lovely passages and absolutely haunting scenes, a fully formed 19th century mystery novel with all the trimmings

July 15, 2014 – Shanghai Factor / Charles McCarry -- absorbing tale of global skullduggery that leaves the reader guessing at every turn

August 19, 2014 – The Doorbell Rang (Nero Wolfe) / Rex Stout -- Wolfe and his sidekick Archie Goodwin face the malevolent forces of J. Edgar Hoover and his FBI minions. Luckily, Stout's heart and his writing style are more than equal to the challenge.

September 16, 2014 – Case Histories / Kate Atkinson -- Private detective Jackson Brodie finds himself entangled in three distinctly different cases with remarkable connections between them.

October 21, 2014 - Simple / Kathleen George – set in Pittsburgh featuring a fully realized cast of characters, a close-knit group of detectives who deal with shades of gray in crime-solving.

November 18, 2014 - Constant Lovers / Chris Nickson -- July, 1732: On a hot summer morning, Richard Nottingham, Constable of Leeds, is called out when a young woman is found stabbed to death among the ruins of Kirkstall Abbey.

December 16, 2014 – Beautiful Place to Die / Malla Nunn -- darkly romantic crime novel set in 1950s apartheid South Africa, featuring Detective Emmanuel Cooper
