First Friday: Coloring For Grownups

First Friday: Coloring For Grownups

Alicia Ashman Library
09/01/2017
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

What's this coloring-for-grownups craze all about? Come and find out! Coloring for adults can be a stress-reliever, and a low-pressure way to get your creative juices flowing.

The instructions?

1. Break out your crayons, colored pencils, or markers. (We'll provide these, but feel free to bring your own if you have favorites).

2. Turn off your phone, tablet, computer, whatever.

3. Start coloring. (We'll have a variety of coloring sheets to choose from).

4. If you notice at any point that you are forgetting your worries, daydreaming freely, or feeling more creative, curious, excitable, delighted, relaxed, or any combination thereof, take a deep breath and enjoy it. Remind yourself that coloring, like dancing or falling in love, does not have a point. It is the point.

5. When you don't feel like it anymore, stop.

This is not a class--there is no formal instruction. No registration required--just drop in, bring your creativity, and color yourself relaxed.

Occasionally a special craft project may be added.

Book Discussion of UW-Madison's 2017 Go Big Read: Hillbilly Elegy

Alicia Ashman Library
09/26/2017
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join in the discussion of UW-Madison’s 2017 Go Big Read Book, “Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis” by J.D. Vance.

This New York Times bestseller is personal reflection on upward mobility in America seen through the lens of a white, working-class family in the Midwest. Author J.D. Vance grew up in the Rust Belt city of Middletown, Ohio, and the Appalachian town of Jackson, Kentucky. He enlisted in the Marine Corps after high school and served in Iraq, then went on to graduate from Ohio State University and Yale Law School. He has since become a principal at a leading Silicon Valley investment firm and a contributing writer to the National Review. Through his memoir, he shares experiences from his difficult childhood and how they have shaped his life. His story has resonated with many people and has sparked discussion about social, economic, and political issues nation-wide - and was chosen as the 2017 Go Big Read title to keep the conversation going. Visit http://www.madisonpubliclibrary.org/go-big-read to find more information, including other discussion dates, related events, and suggestions for further reading.
