Amanda Stern:Little Panic, Dispatches from an Anxious Life
Mar 3 @ 7:00 pm
Amanda Stern:Little Panic, Dispatches from an Anxious Life @ O'Brien Auditorium, East Academic Building, Landmark College

Amanda will talk about creating a life on her own terms, including becoming a professional comedian and publishing thirteen books. Despite growing up with an undiagnosed panic disorder and an unspecified learning disability, she’s managed to live a full and joyful life. She’ll discuss the writing process and how she accomplished goals she was consistently told were out of her reach.

Amanda Stern is the author of The Long Haul and eleven books for children written under pseudonyms. In 2003, she founded the legendary Happy Ending Music and Reading Series, which required creative artists to take risks onstage. The multi-disciplinary series became the gold standard for literary events; many of today’s series are (knowingly and unknowingly) based on Happy Ending’s model. It was produced at Joe’s Pub and later at Symphony Space. The series ended in 2018.

Stern’s most recent book is Little Panic, a memoir about growing up with an undiagnosed panic disorder in Etan Patz era Greenwich Village is out now from Grand Central Publishing. Amanda is a mental health advocate, speaker, and advisory board member for Bring Change to Mind. She lives in Brooklyn with her dog, Busy.

Free Workshop: Thoughtful Reading
Mar 7 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

As March roars in, come to the library to hone your reading and creative writing skills. These stand-alone workshops are open to teens and adults. Come to one or all; no prior registration required.

March 7: Thoughtful Reading: Many of us have trouble describing a book we’ve read beyond saying we liked or didn’t like it. Knowing how to evaluate a story is useful, whether you’re a member of a book club or in a writing critique group; someone who posts comments on Amazon and Goodreads or who simply likes to recommend books to friends. In this workshop, we’ll examine the elements in a story and consider questions to ask about stories. We will then practice applying these skills.

This is the first of four free workshops on reading and writing. This first one is for readers, though writers, too, would find it useful. The other three are primarily for writers.

Sponsored by the Friends of Brooks Memorial Library.

Joel Ross “Good Vibes” Quintet
Mar 14 @ 8:00 pm
Joel Ross "Good Vibes" Quintet @ Vermont Jazz Center

With the impetus of the release of his debut album on Blue Note Records, ‘KingMaker’, we are happy to present Ross at the VJC with his own ensemble.

As Jazz Times noted, “Not since Stefon Harris’ arrival 20 years ago has the jazz world heard a young vibraphonist intent on exploring so many dimensions.

KingMaker shows us a player deeply versed in the jazz vibes tradition who’s also internalized the atmospherics of ECM and EDM as surely as he has the grooves of hip-hop and M-Base. On his first recording, Ross oozes potential.”

“In a New York City crowded with hyperliterate young jazz talent, the 24-year-old vibraphonist Joel Ross… is the rare young talent able to inhabit the clichés of contemporary jazz while also challenging them”- NY Times, Best of Jazz 2019.

Joel Ross, vibraphone

Immanuel Wilkens, saxophone

Jeremy Corren, piano

Kanoa Mendelhall, bass

Jeremy Dutton, drums

We will look at multiple ways to structure a story to make it so compelling that a reader cannot put it down. We will also practice analyzing the structure of several stories.
