Homestead's
Tartan and Treble Choirs

Thursday, January 21 at 6:30 PM

On Thursday, January 21 at 6:30 pm, Homestead High School’s Tartan and Treble choirs will perform at the Frank L. Weyenberg Library as part of the 2016 Fine Arts series. The Tartan and Treble Choirs include auditioned student musicians grades 10-12. Students study and perform music in a variety of styles and serve as musical ambassadors in the Mequon-Thiensville community. The Homestead Tartan and Treble Choirs and their director, Rebecca Renee Winnie, are excited to perform a diverse program of a cappella choral repertoire- from sacred and secular Renaissance music; to a piece in the early American singing-school tradition; to 19th and 20th century partsongs; to arrangements of folksongs, vocal jazz standards, popular songs and traditional African-American spirituals! Please join us at the Library for a wonderful musical evening!

Regular library services will be suspended at 6:00 on Thursday, January 21 for this special event. No registration is required for this free program, and all are welcome to attend. Fine Art Series performances are made possible due to the generosity of the Weyenberg Public Library Foundation.

Philosophers in their Historical Contexts: Aristotle

Tuesday, February 2 at 6:00 PM

Join us at the Frank L. Weyenberg Library on Tuesday, February 2, 2016 at 6:00 PM for the first session of a scholarly lecture series! Over the course of this year, the lecture series will focus on examining the historical contexts in which thinkers like Aristotle, Anselm of Canterbury, Rene Descartes, and Hannah Arendt were writing in relation to their main ideas. February’s lecture will cover the Greek philosopher and scientist Aristotle.

Recommended for adults and high school students. Each lecture will last about 60 minutes, with time for questions and answers following the lecture. This event is open to the public and no registration is required. This lecture series is presented by Greg Sadler and Andi Sciacca of ReasonIO.

The Story of a Book
Thursday, February 11 at 6:00 PM

On Thursday February 11, 2016 at 6:00 pm, the Frank L. Weyenberg Library welcomes author and Wisconsin resident, Jane Kelley for a presentation on the mechanics of publishing in "The Story of a Book." The entire process of creating a book, from starting with the blank page, writing, rewriting, editing, copy-editing, design, promotion, and eventually the finished product will be covered during the presentation. The program will be based on the author's direct experience, but can be applied to all types of books and geared towards all ages. No registration is required for this free program, and all are welcome to attend. Books will be available on site through Boswell Books & Company.

Jane Kelley lives in Mequon, Wisconsin, with her husband and her lucky black cat. She is very proud to have been the 2013 Thurber House Children's Writer in Residence. After raising her daughter in Brooklyn, Jane is happy to be back in her childhood home, at the edge of a magical woods. She studied theater at Northwestern University, and learned how to get inside a character and speak loudly. If you would like to know more about the author, please visit her website www.janekelleybooks.com.
