Escondido Public Library Celebrates Veterans Day  

10/11/16 Categories: Library

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Oscar Lujan, 760-839-4214

Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library will host two events to celebrate and honor Veterans Day this November. The first event is Defeating Stress, an iRest Yoga Nidra meditation workshop on Saturday November 5, 2016, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the Mathes Center. The second program is USS Midway and the Fall of Saigon, presented by USS Midway Museum Speaker’s Bureau docent, Joe Ciokon, on Monday November 7, 2016, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Library’s Turrentine Room.

Defeating Stress is a Veterans Day-themed meditation workshop presented by Melissa Wise, Certified iRest Yoga Nidra teacher. This class is designed for anyone suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or for anyone feeling overwhelmed and seeking relaxation techniques. The class is open to anyone that wishes to heal unresolved issues, traumas, and wounds in the body and mind. To attend Defeating Stress, register at library.escondido.org/register since space is limited. To learn more about iRest Yoga Nidra, visit http://www.irest.us and find materials on a number of meditation techniques in the Library catalog at library.escondido.org.

Attend the lecture USS Midway and the Fall of Saigon and discover the crucial role played by the USS Midway during “Operation Frequent Wind” in 1975. As the People’s Army of Vietnam surrounded Saigon, thousands of South Vietnamese fled for their lives to the safety of the United States fleet just off-shore. The USS Midway received more than 3,000 refugees, many of them one step ahead of certain death, or long terms in re-education camps under the Liberation Armies. This is a story of fear, hope, and sanctuary for those South Vietnamese fortunate enough to escape Saigon during the final days of the Vietnam War.

The USS Midway aircraft carrier of the United States Navy was commissioned one week after the end of World War II and was the largest ship in the world until 1955. It operated for 47 years and is retired today as a museum and memorial ship in San Diego. USS Midway and the Fall of Saigon is an important story, among the many missions in this ship’s proud history.

Library programs are free and open to the public. For more information on these and other Library events, visit the Library’s website at library.escondido.org or call Adult Services Librarian, Oscar Lujan at 760-839-4214 or at olujan@escondido.org.

Escondido Public Library and The Old Globe Present Shakespeare Saturdays in November 

10/10/16 Categories: Library

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONTACT: Joanna Axelrod, 760-839-4330

Escondido, CA - Escondido Public Library and San Diego’s Old Globe present Shakespeare Saturdays, bringing theater to the local community through their arts engagement program, Globe for All. Shakespeare Saturdays pairs an introductory workshop that will demystify Shakespeare and Measure for Measure in the first session and present the live play in the second session.

The first Shakespeare Saturday event takes place on Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Library’s Turrentine Room. Old Globe teaching artists will lead a Bard Basics Workshop introducing participants to Shakespeare’s language, themes, characters, and stories though theater-based activities. Registration is required at library.escondido.org/register.

Shakespeare’s play Measure for Measure will be performed live and “in the round” with professional Globe actors on Saturday, November 19, 2016, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Library’s Turrentine Room. This production is appropriate for ages 12 and older. Registration is required at library.escondido.org/register to accommodate the audience.

The searing comedy, Measure for Measure, is set in a decadent Vienna, where strict Angelo wants to rid the city of moral decay. When he meets a young nun pleading for the life of her brother, things get complicated. Justice, lust, hypocrisy, and redemption take center stage along with a wild cast of characters in a bold staging of this timely classic. Acclaimed director Patricia McGregor makes her Globe debut.

Over the past two years Globe for All has performed for nearly 2,200 audience members. Joanna Axelrod, Principal Librarian said, “Escondido Public Library is so excited to partner with San Diego’s very own Old Globe to bring Shakespeare’s “theater in the round” to our community for everyone to enjoy. While both the Bard Basics Workshop and the live performance of Measure for Measure each stand alone, those who attend both will get the most out of the experience. We are thrilled to help introduce a new audience to Shakespeare’s world and plays in partnership with Globe for All.”

Library programs are free to the public. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia Street Escondido, CA 92025.  For more information about Library programs and services visit library.escondido.org or contact Principal Librarian Joanna Axelrod at 760-839-4330.
