114E: child threatens misbehaving teddy bear with boogeyman
This was a rhyming book or poem from the 60s. It began, “My teddy bear was bad one day, I could not get him to obey” the child tries to scare the bear into behaving with a scary description of the boogeyman and I think it ends “I don’t believe it said my bear, and neither did I so we left it there.”

~ Friday Night Music series ~
Inspired by a wide range of music, you can hear the echoes of an array of American musical traditions intertwined with modal explorations and occasional forays into noise and drone. Istvan Medgyesi played at Larchmere Porchfest in 2009, and we're pleased to welcome him (and all his instruments) back to the Larchmere neighborhood. Donations for the band gratefully accepted.

The current line-up includes Kevin Richards on guitar, Bill Kenney on clarinet, Reed Simon on violin, and Gene Epstein on double bass. Same great toe-tapping tunes in the cozy LitArts room. Come see what it's all about. Donations for the band gratefully accepted.

What’s on your summer reading list? Now’s the time to share your interesting, unusual, and otherwise noteworthy reads with other bibliophiles at our semi-annual Show and Tell session. Anything goes: you can bring treasured tomes and tell us about them, or you can bring odd curiosities you know nothing about and let group members tell you what they think. Either way, there’s always something to learn and some great books to discuss. Bring a book and join us!

W.P. Kinsella: Shoeless Joe
Thursday, June 27, 2013, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
“If you build it, he will come.”
These mysterious words inspire Ray Kinsella to create a cornfield baseball diamond in honor of his hero, Shoeless Joe Jackson. What follows is a rich, nostalgic look at one of our most cherished national pastimes and a remarkable story about fathers and sons, love and family, and the inimitable joy of finding your way home.

Friday, July 5, 7:00-8:30pm
~ Friday music series ~
Brian Henke composes and performs his music like a painter putting images on canvas, a kind of sonic shaman, drawing his inspiration from the natural world around him. His unique guitar style has been called everything from Folk to New Age to Neoclassical to Pastoral or, as Brian like to call it, "a big stewpot of everything stirred up, simmered, and served to taste." His music appeals to everyone who likes their music lyrical, thought provoking and performed with virtuosity. Through it all is an undercurrent of spirituality and mysticism that Brian says is very much a part of the creative process. Check out a sample. Donations for the band gratefully accepted.

Mary Doria Russell: The Sparrow
Thursday, July 25, 7-8:30pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
In 2019, humanity finally finds proof of extraterrestrial life when a listening post in Puerto Rico picks up exquisite singing from a planet which will come to be known as Rakhat. While United Nations diplomats endlessly debate a possible first contact mission, the Society of Jesus quietly organizes an eight-person scientific expedition of its own. What the Jesuits find is a world so beyond comprehension that it will lead them to question the meaning of being "human." When the lone survivor of the expedition, Emilio Sandoz, returns to Earth in 2059, he will try to explain what went wrong. Mary Doria Russell will join the discussion.
