Harriet & Jerry Ritzer Memorial Lecture: Brad Aronson, Human KindThis nation­al best­seller is filled with inspir­ing real-life sto­ries about how one small deed can make a world of dif­fer­ence. Moved by the many demon­stra­tions of ​“human kind­ness” that sup­port­ed Brad Aron­son’s fam­i­ly through his wife’s treat­ment for and recov­ery from leukemia, he writes of the peo­ple who res­cued his fam­i­ly from that dark time, often with the small­est of ges­tures. But that’s only the begin­ning. Know­ing that sim­ple acts of kind­ness trans­form lives across the globe every day, he sought out these sto­ries and shares the best ones here. In HumanKind, you’ll meet the men­tor who changed a child’s life with a sin­gle les­son in shoe tying, the six-year-old who launched a glob­al kind­ness move­ment, and many oth­er heroes. Brad also pro­vides dozens of ways to make a dif­fer­ence through the sim­plest words and deeds, show­ing how each of us has the pow­er to change some­one’s world as well as our own. HumanKind will touch your heart and remind you of what real­ly matters. REGISTER FOR EVENTPURCHASE BOOK

Livingston Public Library
Livingston - Program Room, Livingston Public Library

Thursday, October 28 from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm

Livingston Public Library

Children's book author M.D. Payne will give a multimedia author presentation that covers how he got his start and how he wrote his books. He'll engage with kids using silly voices, photos from his childhood, and a fun video or two. He'll include writing tips (Tip #1—Write What You Love!) and explore the difference between writing fiction and non-fiction, ending with a Q&A.Perfect for Middle Grade readers. M. D. Payne was born in 1978 in New Hampshire to an Air Force Family and grew up in 11 different homes in Maine, California, Idaho, Florida, Virginia, Ohio, and Germany. As a child, he was a ravenous reader. While in elementary school, his favorite past-time was creating cut-and-paste scrapbooks of presidential facts that remain in his mother's possession today. M. D. has been a fan of Halloween and horror into adulthood, so he jumped at the chance to write marketing and creative copy for the famed GOOSEBUMPS series in 2007, and was soon pulled into the world of kidlit. He wrote his first books, the gross-out horror series MONSTER JUICE, from 2012–2014, and then became involved in the NY Times bestselling WHO WAS series, tackling spooky titles like Who Is R. L. Stine? and What is the Story of Scooby-Doo? along with Who Was Duke Ellington?His tenth and latest book is Frankenstein: Your Classics. Your Choices. In this choose-your-own-adventure-style book, readers get to choose new paths and meet new characters in Mary Shelley's classic Frankenstein.A fan of kids, reading, and especially kids who read, M. D. gives presentations on reading and writing to children and parents alike at numerous schools around the country, and around the world via Skype. He lives in New Jersey with his wife and two daughters.This program is made possible by the Friends of the Livingston Library.

Curator, Museum of History and Holocaust Education, Kennesaw State UniversityZoom Author Talk and Q & ALucy Adlington is an author, presenter, and keen collector of vintage & antique costume. She writes both history-inspired fiction and fascinating social history books. She lives on a working farm in the north of England, with a patient farmer and a cat the size of a small armchair. At the height of the Holocaust twenty-five young inmates of the infamous Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp—mainly Jewish women and girls—were selected to design, cut, and sew beautiful fashions for elite Nazi women in a dedicated salon. It was work that they hoped would spare them from the gas chambers. This fashion workshop—called the Upper Tailoring Studio—was established by Hedwig Höss, the camp commandant’s wife, and patronized by the wives of SS guards and officers. Here, the dressmakers produced high-quality garments for SS social functions in Auschwitz, and for ladies from Nazi Berlin’s upper crust.

From Vienna, the Strausses and Lehar; from Paris, Offenbach; from London, Gilbert & Sullivan: exotic locales, derring-do drama, gorgeously lush melodies, romance, sentiment & color at fever pitch.The Senior Happening is a monthly series that allows attendees (“Seniors” or otherwise) to socialize during the first part of the program (12 until 12:45 pm) by bringing a bag lunch. The program and entertainment then begins at 1 pm.Registration is required for Senior Happening.
