A Tribute to Great Lyricists with Naomi Zeitlin

 Saturday, August 8 at 2:00 p.m.
Think about some of your favorite songs. What makes them your favorites? Is it the melody, the rhythm, the lyrics, or is it perhaps the way all of those pieces come together to make the whole into a true work of art? A rich variety of music with “standout” lyrics, reflecting many
song styles, moods, and emotions will be explored. Hear several well-known lyricists such as Ira Gershwin, Lawrence Hart, Johnny Mercer and Fred Ebb, and other “lesser known” lyricists such as Mitchell Parrish and Jack Murphy. There are some songwriters who did, or do it all, such as Cole Porter, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman and Stephen Schwartz.

Without a Script: A Caregiver’s Journey

 Wednesday, August 12 at 2:00 p.m.
Author Lois Kipnis will discuss and read excerpts from her recently published book Without a Script: A Caregiver’s Journey, a collection
of humorous, heartwarming and poignant stories, poems, letters and vignettes that capture the roller coaster of emotions as she and her mom are cast in new roles and set out on a journey without a script, stage directions or understudies in the wings. Lois Kipnis is a creative arts consultant with forty years of experience as a drama teacher and arts administrator. The Friends of the Library will facilitate the sale of her book.
