Mulberry Street. The award-winning documentary celebrates the “eggstraordinary” dream of one man, Ron Manolio, and his wife, Betty, who together created something truly “eggceptional”. For 56 years, the two “eggcentrics” used 50,000 brightly colored eggs in their modest Cleveland suburb front yard to bring color and delight to their community and eventually the world. Join family member Joanne Snow at a special viewing of this film as she shares the message of how one person’s dream really can change a neighborhood and even the world—one cracked eggshell at a time.

APRIL 20: Safety, Utility & Safety Committee 5 pm./Village Council-7:00 pm / The Adult Book Discussion group at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County will take the show on the road for a field trip to see Author Katharine Weber on a special night, Monday, April 20. Beginning at 7:00 p.m., participants are invited to attend a reception with refreshments at Paragraphs Bookstore, downtown Mount Vernon, followed by an author talk at 7:30 a few doors down at Hunter Hall. Weber is the author of five novels including “Triangle,” “Objects in Mirror are Closer Than They Appear,” “The Music Lesson,” “The Little Women,” and “True Confections” and her upcoming sixth book, “The Memory of All That: George Gershwin, Kay Swift and My Family’s Legacy of Infidelities.” The book “Triangle,” will be the featured at the book discussion. Copies are available at the library or can be purchased and autographed that evening. In “Triangle,” Esther Gottesfeld is the last living survivor of the notorious 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist fire and has told her story countless times in the span of her lifetime. Even so, her death at the age of 106 leaves unanswered many questions about what happened that fateful day. How did she manage to survive the fire when at least 146 workers, most of them women, her sister and fiancé among them, burned or jumped to their deaths from the sweatshop inferno? Are the discrepancies in her various accounts over the years just ordinary human fallacy, or is there a hidden story in Esther’s recollections of that terrible day? Esther’s granddaughter Rebecca Gottesfeld, with her partner George Botkin, an ingenious composer, seek to unravel the facts of the matter while Ruth Zion, a zealous feminist historian of the fire, bores in on
them with her own mole-like agenda. A brilliant, haunting novel about one of the most terrible tragedies in early twentieth-century America, “Triangle” forces us to consider how we tell our stories, how we hear them, and how history is forged from unverifiable truths. Weber is serving as the Richard L. Thomas Chair in Creative Writing at Kenyon College and has taught fiction writing at Connecticut College, Yale University, the Paris Writers Workshop, Goucher College and Columbia University. The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665) Ext. 243, visit www.knox.net or email communityrelations@knox.net.

Mulberry Street. Based on the real life story of legendary cryptanalyst Alan Turing, the film portrays the nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team of code-breakers at Britain's top-secret Government Code and Cypher School at Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. The film features Academy Award nominated performances by actors Benedict Cumberbatch, Kiera Knightley and director Morton Tyldum. After the war with most of their secretive work classified, the team and Turing tried to return to normal lives. However, in 1951, a simple break-in at Turing's home brought forward allegations of homosexuality--a chargeable offense in Great Britain. The man who many credit as the father of the computer and whose brains and work shortened World War II by years and saved countless lives found himself in the middle of a scandal that did not end until Queen Elizabeth pardoned him posthumously in 2013. The film is free and open to the public. Children under age 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Popcorn provided by Subway of Mount Vernon. For more information call the main library at 740-392-BOOK (2665) ext 243, visit www.knox.net or email communityrelations@knox.net.
