Art Exhibit:

Zeb Mayer and William Talbot

September 27 - November 21

 

 

 

Zeb is a true emerging artist. The raw talent demonstrated in his artwork is refreshingly brilliant. From Roxbury, CT he is currently studying at Western Connecticut State University as well as studying drawing and painting under the supervision of his father and mentor Mercer Mayer. Zeb has a wide variety of work from surreal illustrations and watercolor paintings, to spontaneous steel brush and ink drawings. His artwork derives from his quest to visually bring his own ideas and different perspectives to life.

 

 

William was born in Washington Ct in to a family of artists. The oldest being his grandfather, William Talbot Sr., a sculptor of great fame, who won the Prix De Rome and has a piece in the permanent collection of the Whitney Museum of Art. William started his journey as a fine artist working with wire, moving to welding and larger scale metal pieces. Attending Pacific Northwest College of Art and Oregon College of Art and Craft.  During his junior year he was reintroduced to ceramics, which became his passion. William became more fascinated with utilitarian pieces of functional art. His thesis was to create the “perfect” teapot, which is of course impossible, but something he still strives to attain to this day. His career as a production potter and teacher of clay is a most fulfilling quest.

The Attack

by Yasmina Khadra

Discussion led by Marge Josephson

 

November 7

The Attack by Yasmina Khadra (2006, 257 pages). Set in modernday Tel Aviv, this novel is about Amin Jaafari, a pacifist ArabIsraeli surgeon who learns that his wife, killed in a suicide bombing, was probably a terrorist. In searching out the extremists who recruited her, Jaafari is forced to an understanding of some of the painful complexities of ArabIsraeli relations. A compelling, thoughtprovoking story by an Algerian writer known for his incisive political fiction.

 

Our informal gathering will be at the newly re-opened library. Refreshments will be served.

Children’s Book Campaign

Purchase a book to commemorate the new

Sherman Library!

 

Today libraries are much more than just books but it’s hard to imagine a library without them.  Books educate, enrich, entertain and shape us.

 

The Sherman Library wants the our building's bookshelves filled with new books. As new and fresh as our renovated, restored and expanded facility.

 

You can help us reach this goal!  Become part of the effort to “restock our shelves” by purchasing a book to add to the children’s collection. It’s a great way to honor or remember someone and be part of this momentous undertaking in our community.

 

It’s simple. Stop by the new library to choose from the books on display, select a new or classic title from our list, you make a suggestion of your choice or leave it up to us to decide. Children’s books can be purchased for $20.

 

Every book you buy includes a personalized bookplate with the words you request and will be on special display for a year.

 

Thank you for your support of the Sherman Library!
