    Performance of MARRIAGE IS MURDER by Nick Hall at the Somers Library

    Sunday Oct 22
    2 pm - 4 pm

    Somers Library

    Performance of MARRIAGE IS MURDER by Nick Hall at the Somers Library Sunday, October 22nd at 2 - 4 pm. The theater group M&M Performing Arts will be presenting Marriage is Murder, the murderously funny comedy by Nick Hall, at the Somers Library. Ex-spouses Paul and Polly Butler write murder mysteries together. They act out the crimes in Paul’s apartment: poisoned chocolates and lethal martinis, alibis and fingerprints and bodies all contribute to the hilarity. There are many fast paced comic twists as they attempt to outdo and surprise each other and they learn that marriage, like murder, is in the details. Directed by Maureen Howard with Carol Eagen and Dick Smith. Join us for this amusing play. Space is limited, no registration, first come, first served. Our programs are funded by the Friends of the Somers Library through your donations. Thanks for your support! The Somers Library 914-232-5717 www.somerslibrary.org

    Pound Ridge Library: Teaching Company Great Courses: History of Ancient Egypt

    1 pm - 2:15 pm

     

     

    Thu Sep 7th 1:00pm - 2:15pm
     
     

    Weekly September 7 through March 15. DVD College-level Seminar. Moderator: Lawrence Brotmann. DVD Lectures by Prof. Bob Brier, Long Island University.

    Followed by: Discussion & Refreshments. Open to All Adult Learners. No Fee. Limited Enrollment. Call the Library to Register.

    Consider scale. The only one of the Eight Wonders of the Ancient World still standing, the Great Pyramid of Cheops, was the tallest building in the world until well into the 1800s. It covers 13.5 acres at the base and contains 2.3 million limestone blocks, weighing 5,000 pounds each on average. Tens of thousands of men labored to raise this tomb—but they were not slaves; they were free farmers and artisans. The social organization alone of this project humbles most modern achievements. And it was built in 2550 B.C., roughly 2,000 years before Rome was founded.

    Consider its mystery. Egypt was the most advanced of any ancient civilization. Yet, even after deciphering the hieroglyphs, Egypt remains one of the most mysterious. Scarabs, mummies, obelisks, sphinxes—their civilization was extraordinary and yet so 'other' from what we live today.

    Professor Bob Brier regularly hosts and contributes to programs on ancient Egypt for The History Channel and The Learning Channel. He has served as Director of the National Endowment for the Humanities 'Egyptology Today' Program and has twice been selected as a Fulbright Scholar. He is also the recipient of the David Newton Award for Teaching Excellence. He is the perfect guide to take you through the tombs, mummies, and history of Egypt.

    Professor Brier combines the precision and care of a scientist with a novelist's feel for plot, action, and character. His approach brings together the best that the narrative and scientific schools of history have to offer.
