Orange: Anime at Hawthorne

Orange: Anime at Hawthorne

Hawthorne Library
11/03/2017
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Second-year student Naho Takamiyathinks it’s a joke when she receives a letter from her 26-year-old self, forewarning the tragic future of a boy named Kakeru. But the advice proves true when he transfers to her school—just like the letter predicted. As their lives intertwine, Kakeru’s dark past keeps him from opening up to anyone, and every day becomes a challenge for Naho to change his future. Fortunately, she isn’t all alone in her task. Surrounded by a close group of friends, there may be more hope than Naho expected. Will their combined efforts be enough to prevent the greatest regret of their lives?

The Hawthorne Anime Club was created to give people a place to gather, watch, and talk about Japanese animation. Each meeting will include screenings of everything from classic titles to new releases. The club is aimed primarily at teens and adults. Films are shown in Japanese with English subtitles. Refreshments served at each meeting.

Call ahead to reserve your spot! People under age 16 who are interested in attending are required to have a parent present or to have a signed parental permission slip.

Book Discussion of Tribe by Sebastian Junger

Book Discussion of Tribe by Sebastian Junger

Hawthorne Library
11/15/2017
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Decades before the American Revolution, Benjamin Franklin lamented that English settlers were constantly fleeing over to the Indians-but Indians almost never did the same. Tribal society has been exerting an almost gravitational pull on Westerners for hundreds of years, and the reason lies deep in our evolutionary past as a communal species. The most recent example of that attraction is combat veterans who come home to find themselves missing the incredibly intimate bonds of platoon life. The loss of closeness that comes at the end of deployment may explain the high rates of post-traumatic stress disorder suffered by military veterans today.

Combining history, psychology, and anthropology, TRIBE explores what we can learn from tribal societies about loyalty, belonging, and the eternal human quest for meaning. It explains the irony that-for many veterans as well as civilians-war feels better than peace, adversity can turn out to be a blessing, and disasters are sometimes remembered more fondly than weddings or tropical vacations. TRIBE explains why we are stronger when we come together, and how that can be achieved even in today's divided world.

Traditionally, when a witch turns 15, she's supposed to go out into the world alone to study magic. Makoto's parents, however, believe that their directionally-challenged daughter should get a high school degree. Instead of being sent out on her own, Makoto and her cat Chito find themselves traveling from the bustling city of Yokohama to Aomori Prefecture, where they'll stay with relatives until Makoto finishes school. It's going to be a big adjustment, and it only gets more complicated since "normal" people aren't supposed to know that witches exist… something that she tends to forget. In the meantime, Makoto, her cousins, and her new friends will have to work just a little harder to adapt to a whole new way of life when the new girl in town is a FLYING WITCH!

The Hawthorne Anime Club was created to give people a place to gather, watch, and talk about Japanese animation. Each meeting will include screenings of everything from classic titles to new releases. The club is aimed primarily at teens and adults. Films are shown in Japanese with English subtitles.

Kids Code Madison

Kids Code Madison

Hawthorne Library
11/30/2017
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Upper elementary (4th and 5th Grade) and middle school students are invited to Kids Code Madison, a weekly, drop-in coding club. A volunteer-led program, youth can program their own interactive stories, games, and animations using programs and tools like Scratch and Trinket. New and experienced kid programmers welcome! Special note: Programming activities are not appropriate for younger elementary school kids.

Kids Code Madison is a club, not a class, so you can come any week, anytime! New programmers will be given some direction with tutorials and help from volunteers, and experienced programmers can work on ongoing projects, start something new, help a friend, or practice the “sushi” (mini, bit sized) skill of the day.

The Salad Days Book Club - Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

The Salad Days Book Club - Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari

Hawthorne Library
11/30/2017
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for Hawthorne Library's monthly book club, The Salad Days! This group is tailored to (but by no means limited to!) readers of the millennial generation looking to explore books and popular culture. We meet the fourth Thursday of each month at The Daisy Cafe and Cupcakery (2827 Atwood Ave). You can pick up books at Hawthorne Library.

A hilarious, thoughtful, and in-depth exploration of the pleasures and perils of modern romance from Aziz Ansari, the star of Master of None and one of this generation’s sharpest comedic voices.

At some point, every one of us embarks on a journey to find love. We meet people, date, get into and out of relationships, all with the hope of finding someone with whom we share a deep connection. This seems standard now, but it’s wildly different from what people did even just decades ago. Single people today have more romantic options than at any point in human history. With technology, our abilities to connect with and sort through these options are staggering. So why are so many people frustrated?
