All Day Testimonios de Una Guerra: Cultural Exhibit (Multi-Day Event)

This exhibit is part of an extended cultural project for the community, one focused on the Mexican Revolution. The Mexican Revolution of 1910-1920 is among the world’s most visually documented revolutions. Coinciding with the birth of filmmaking and the increased mobility offered by the reflex camera, it received extraordinary coverage by photographers. With almost 60 photographs, many never before published, and an authoritative text that delves into the motivations and aesthetics of the photographers who took them, this exhibit represents the most ambitious and historically accurate visual record of the Mexican Revolution.

End Time 3:00 PM Stories for all Readers: Esperanza Rising (Multi-Day Event)

In an effort to welcome readers of all levels and languages, the library is proud to present Stories for all Readers:

Esperanza Rising. Select your preferred edition, as all versions of this masterpiece are welcome.

 

Esperanza thought she’d always live with her family on their ranch in Mexico—she’d always have fancy dresses, a beautiful home and servants. But a sudden tragedy forces Esperanza and Mama to flee to California during the Great Depression, and to settle in a camp for Mexican farm workers. Esperanza isn’t ready for the hard labor, financial struggles or lack of acceptance she now faces. When their new life is threatened, Esperanza must find a way to rise above her difficult circumstances—Mama’s life, and her own, depend on it.

 

9:30 AM - 11:00 AM A Smile as Big as the Moon: Book Discussion

Mike Kersjes always believed that his students could do anything—even attend the prestigious Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama, where some of America’s best and brightest high school students compete in a variety of activities similar to those experienced by NASA astronauts training for space shuttle missions. The challenge was convincing everyone else that the kids in his special education class, with disabilities including Tourette’s syndrome, Down’s syndrome, dyslexia, eating disorders and a variety of emotional problems would benefit from the experience and succeed. After nine months of rigorous preparation, Kersjes’s class arrived at Space Camp, where they turned in a performance beyond everyone’s expectations.

Now Bordeaux is courting China, its most lucrative customer ever. Traditional customers like the U.S. and the U.K. are falling away as China’s new rich push prices to stratospheric levels.
