Mulberry Street. With all the Marvel action movies and technically advanced remakes of action classics pumping up current box office sales, it is important to remember that none of this would have been possible if not for that day in 1978 when Superman flew into movie theaters and a new genre took off.

JULY 15: "Extraordinary Spirits: A Visit with Ohio Moonshiners" will be the topic of the Escape the Ordinary Adult Summer Reading Program Brown Bag Chat on Wednesday, July 15, noon, at the Public Library of Mount Vernon & Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street. No...it’s not Granny Clampett’s “white lightnin’ 'fer medicinal purposes”, but if you walk in for a free tour of the Mill Street Distillery in Utica, the bright copper coils and huge copper kettle still would make any moonshiner in the hills hoist a jug in celebration! Last year, Carlos Ogden, Jeff Thompson and partners opened the first legal moonshine distillery in Ohio--in downtown Utica. The team will share how they use traditional techniques combined with quality ingredients (many local) to make their award-winning extraordinary spirits. Learn the history of this trade, modern regulations, and what’s behind production of spirits from crystal clear moonshine, to honey gold grappa, to their latest venture--bourbon aging respectfully in burnt oak barrels. The program is free and open to the public of all ages. Refreshments served or feel free to bring your own bag lunch. Participants are encouraged to sign up for the Escape the Ordinary Adult Summer Reading Program to be eligible for weekly and grand prizes.

Mulberry Street. “Selma” tells the story of a movement inspired by the extraordinary courage of Dr. Martin Luther King, community leaders, clergy and everyday citizens who chose to stand up and change the world they lived in. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama culminated in President Lyndon Johnson signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965--one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. The program is free and open to the public of all ages. Children under 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Refreshments will be served.

JULY 20: Safety, Utility & Safety Committee 5 pm./Village Council-7:00 pm /

JULY 21: Author Sheryl Smart Hall will give an insider's look at her book "Warren G. Harding & the Marion Daily Star: How Newspapering Shaped a President" at the Escape the Ordinary Adult Summer Reading Program Book Discussion on Tuesday, July 21, 7:00 p.m., at the Public Library of Mount Vernon & Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street. President Warren G. Harding's 39 year career as a newspaperman is often treated as a footnote. His political successes were based on the thinking of a newspaper editor--balancing all of the facets of an issue, examining the facts and weighing the effect on the constituents. Even his approach to balancing the federal budget was built on early experience at his small, struggling newspaper, where his motto was: "All paid in, all paid out, books even." Hall, who in addition to being an author is director of the Harding Home & Memorial in Marion, OH, will offer a unique perspective to the Harding story by looking at him through the eyes of those who knew him best--his co-workers at the Marion Star. Books will be available to purchase and an autograph session will follow program. The program is free and open to the public of all ages. Refreshments served. Participants are encouraged to sign up for the Escape the Ordinary Adult Summer Reading Program to be eligible for weekly and monthly prizes. For more information, call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665) Ext. 243, visit www.knox.net, or email communityrelations@knox.net.

JULY 22: “Extraordinary Creativity: The World of Cosplay” will be featured at the final Escape the Ordinary Adult Summer Reading Program Brown Bag Chat on Wednesday, July22, noon, at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street. Mention the word “Cosplay” and many visualize people who work as doctors, lawyers and waitresses by day and run around in Spiderman or Catwoman costumes by night. But the world of Cosplay is so much more. Cosplay--or “costume play”--has serious fans who spend thousands on costumes, makeup and accessories. Some even create an entire lifestyle full of imagination, creativity and dedication to this performance and visual art form. Local, national and international Cosplay clubs can be found worldwide. Join Cosplay fan and artist Morgan “Nightingale” Durfee, as she gives a multimedia presentation on this unique genre and shares some of her work with a professional cosplay company from an insider’s perspective. Cosplay fans are welcome to attend and share their favorite costumes and stories. The program is free and open to the public of all ages. Refreshments served or feel free to bring your own bag lunch. Participants are encouraged to sign up for the Escape the Ordinary Adult Summer Reading Program to be eligible for weekly and monthly prizes. For more information, call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665), visit www.knox.net, or email communityrelations@knox.net.
