Meet the Author: Nomi Eve at the Monmouth County Library Headquarters

E-mail Print PDF

nomieveCome hear an impressive new voice in fiction, as author Nomi Eve visits Monmouth County Library Headquarters in Manalapan on Sunday, October 5 to read from her new novel, Henna House.

The program will begin at 2 PM at Library Headquarters, which is located at 125 Symmes Drive in Manalapan 07726

Eve's first book, The Family Orchard, was a Book-of-the-Month club main selection and nominated for a National Jewish Book Award. Eve has a masters degree in fiction writing from Brown University and has worked as a writer for The Village Voice and New York Newsday. She currently is a lecturer in the creative writing program at Bryn Mawr College.

Her newest book, Henna House, is an intimate family portrait that moves across the panorama of history. An evocative and stirring novel, the story centers on a young woman living in the fascinating and rarely portrayed community of Yemenite Jews of the mid-20th century.

From the traditions of the Yemenite Jews, to the far-ranging devastation of the Holocaust, to the birth of the State of Israel, Henna House offers an unforgettable coming-of-age story and a textured chronicle of a fascinating period in the 20th century. Only a handful of Jews remain in Yemen today. In Henna House, Eve explores the rich traditions and  customs of the now forgotten and once vibrant community of Yemenite Jews with spirit and warmth..

Freeholder recognition for Big Read award

 

The Monmouth County Library's 2013 program, The Big Read, was recognized by the New Jersey State Library with an award for multicultural programming.

The Monmouth County Library was one of three New Jersey libraries honored with this award "for conducting outstanding multicultural programs to engage cultural and ethnic communities in meaningful and effective partnerships" according to New Jersey State Librarian Mary Chute. The award was announced during a breakfast at the New Jersey Library Association Annual Conference, on June 4.

The Monmouth County Library was proud to partner with The Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education (Chhange) at Brookdale Community College for The Big Read.

The book that Chhange selected for The Big Read discussion was A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest Gaines, which takes place in the segregated South and is the tale of a man who is incarcerated and executed for a crime that he did not commit.

Original Monuments Man to speak at Marlboro Library on July 14

E-mail Print PDF

ettlinger

Meet Harry Ettlinger -- a real World War II "Monuments Man" -- at the Marlboro Library on Monday, July 14 at 2 p.m.

This event is free but tickets are required, and are limited to 2 tickets per family. Pick up your free tickets at the Marlboro Library, 1 Library Court and Wyncrest Drive, beginning July 7. 

As a soldier in the United States Army during World War II, Ettlinger spent a year and a half as part of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Program, nicknamed the "Monuments Men," whose mission it was to save cultural treasures from the frontlines and return looted artworks to rightful owners.

The unit became famous decades later, first with the Monuments Men book by Robert M. Edsel, and then with the movie released earlier this year starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett and John Goodman.
