SURE THING is a classic of contemporary comedy: Two people meet in a cafe and find their way through a conversational minefield as an offstage bell interrupts their false starts, gaffes, and faux pas onthe way to falling in love. THE PHILADELPHIA presents a young man in a restaurant who has fallen into "a Philadelphia," a Twilight Zone-like state in which he cannot get anything he asks for. His only way out of the dilemma? To ask forthe opposite of what he wants. VARIATIONS ON THE DEATH OF TROTSKY shows us the Russian revolutionary on the day of his demise, desperately trying to cope with the mountain-climber's axe he's discovered in his head. MERE MORTALS eavesdrops on a lunch hour on a girder 50 stories over the street, as three construction workers share increasingly amazing secrets of their past.
Beginning Sunday, November 6th at 2pm, the library will offer a monthly crafts program for "grownups". This month we will be making GOURD CANDLES, great for your Thanksgiving centerpiece or as a hostess gift. Bring your melon ballers and old candle stubs. Everyone 12 and older is welcome to participate. Contact Jennifer at the library for more information.

Wilfrid Dantis is a self-taught artist from Port-au-Price, Haiti. He began his painting career in Haiti as a street artist in the Haitian vernacular. As he gained more skill and was exposed to different kinds of painting he developed a powerful style of his own.
Wilfrid enjoys painting scenes from everyday Haitian life; often his canvases depict the hard work and challenges faced each day by the "common people". Mr. Dantis says, "Sometimes I put onto the canvas things that I've experienced in my life, and it is through my paintings and their vivid colors that I can express myself, share my culture, and offer the stories of my country. I hope to convey something of the Haitian spirit."
