Go Green @your Library: Merchants of Doubt (a documentary)

movie stillInspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, Merchants of Doubt takes audiences on a satirically comedic, yet illuminating ride into the heart of conjuring American spin. Showing on Tuesday, October 18, at 7:00 p.m., documentarian Robert Kenner (Food, Inc.) lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities—yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change. "The film targets the spinmeisters, hired by or associated with corporate interests, whose job, despite their lack of scientific training, is to discredit the science of climate change doomsayers. The fact that some of these spinmeisters proudly base their method on the machinations of tobacco-industry lobbyists is doubly damning."--Christian Science Monitor Sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library and presented in partnership with MCAN, the Mass Climate Action Network; Quincy CAN, the Quincy Climate Action Network; and FRRACS, Fore River Residents Against the Compressor Station.

On Exhibit: Chinese Brush Paintings

Chinese Brush Paintings

This October we are proud to display Chinese brush paintings by George Huiyi Wang.

Meet the artist and learn more about his art at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 15. He describes his creative process as follows:      

For me, painting is like taking a peaceful walk in the mountains. I paint what I see and it teaches me to see more clearly. I learn to look more carefully at the details of life. I am skilled at painting birds, flowers, and landscapes. This hobby not only introduces me to the world of art and culture, but also keeps me healthy in body and mind.

Are you an artist or do you know someone whose art you think would fit well in the library? Please submit an application to be considered!
