The Laughter Garden -- Diego Pérez

Friday, January 04, 2019
Burton Barr Central Library
1st Floor Gallery
Diego Pérez is an artist originally from Mexico whose focus is on humor, irony, and traditional techniques.  He considers it important to modify the legitimization of art and the usual approach of admiration and respect of the art piece by questioning the environment and by using irony and sarcasm.

Join us for a First Friday closing reception from 6:30-8:00 pm Friday, January 4.  The reception is supported by the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library.

Sit, Stay, Read!

10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
South Mountain Community
Every fourth Saturday of the month from 10:30 AM to 12:00 noon, children and their families are invited to read with a registered therapy dog. The dogs offer children the opportunity to enhance their reading skills without any fear or judgment. The library has several dogs along with their handlers, who enjoy listening as children read to them. All young readers are invited to meet the dogs, pick out a favorite book, then sit down and practice reading to a new friend. We especially encourage all 2nd and 3rd graders who would benefit from having a reading buddy to help boost their skills.  *NOTE:  The date has been changed for December due to the holiday weekend.

AZ Speaks: Cowpokes, Crooks, and Cactus: Arizona in the Movies

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Mesquite Library
Meeting Room

Tyrone Power, Andy Devine,  Katy Jurado, Steve McQueen and, of course, John Wayne. From the earliest days of film, Arizona has been a setting and subject for hundreds of films. Some, like Junior Bonner and Red River, are considered classics, others, such as Billy Jack and Evolution, surely less so. Some may even be classics in the making, from Tombstone to Near Dark. In this entertaining talk, Gregory McNamee, a frequent contributor on film to the Encyclopedia Britannica and former columnist for the Hollywood Reporter, looks at the Grand Canyon State on the silver screen.

This program is made possible by Arizona Humanities and the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library, Mesquite Chapter.
