One of those Scorpioni, Mary Walsh, works as the English secretary for Paolo Innocente, who, in part because of his own wife&#39;s adamant refusal, largely neglects his illegitimate adolescent son, Luca, despite Paolo&#39;s want for Luca to grow up to be a proper young man, much like the English. Luca has lived in an orphanage since his dressmaker mother&#39;s death, death a concept that Luca does not yet understand. As such, he often runs away looking for his mother. On a mutual agreement between Paolo and Mary, Mary becomes Luca&#39;s guardian, she who will receive help in raising Luca by her fellow Scorpioni and financial help from Paolo as needed. Associated with the Scorpioni is a brash younger nouveau riche Jewish-American woman named Elsa Morgenthal, who, because of her affection for Luca&#39;s mother to who she owed money, sets up a trust for Luca&#39;s future. Among the Scorpioni, Lady Hester Random, the widow of the former ambassador to Italy, in particular and Elsa do not get along because of their fundamental outward differences. The life for the Scorpioni changes with the onset of WWII, more specifically when Italy declares war on Britain and France. Despite all of the Scorpioni taken into custody of sorts by the Italians, they are eventually housed in the comforts of a hotel. Lady Hester wrongly believes it is her association with Mussolini that has gotten them into their comfortable surroundings, but which in reality was arranged and paid for by Elsa. Luca, who has just returned to Italy after attending school in Austria, helps Elsa with her efforts to assist those persecuted in Italy. Luca, now a teenager, has fallen in love with Elsa. As such, Luca is jealous of Elsa&#39;s professional and personal relationship with Italian lawyer Vittorio Fanfanni. Elsa&#39;s own situation becomes more precarious with the United States&#39; entrance into the war, the Nazis&#39; increasing persecution of Jews, and Luca discovering that Fanfanni has ulterior motives in his relationship with Elsa. Through it all, Mary still tries to be the voice of what is right to Luca, who may be tainted by his own immature teenaged thoughts during these difficult times.</p> Tue, 18 Apr 2017 00:00:00 GMT Apr 19 - Game Night for Grown-Ups http://home.oceancitylibrary.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.pageDetails&amp;id=77834 <p style="text-align: center;

Meanwhile the stubborn and grumpy Gus learns that he has problems with his eyes and need to go to a specialist but he hides the medical recommendation from everybody. Gus&#39;s boss and friend Pete Klein knows that baseball is the pride and joy of Gus and a retirement would kill him and asks him to travel to North Caroline to scout the promising player Bo Gentry. Pete also protects Gus from the ambitious colleague Phillip Sanderson (Matthew Lillard) that wants his position and to get Gus fired. Pete visits Gus&#39;s estranged daughter Mickey, who is an efficient lawyer that is disputing a partnership in the office where she works with her colleague Todd, and asks her to travel with Gus to North Caroline. Mickey is a great fan of baseball and has a great knowledge of the sport since she used to travel with her father when she was young, but she has a childhood trauma since Gus abandoned her with an uncle when she was a child. In North Caroline, Gus meets the former pitcher Johnny, who had an early retirement due to an injured shoulder and now is scouting for the Red Socks but aiming to be a broadcaster. When he meets Mickey, there is a mutual attraction between them. Along the days, Gus discovers that Gentry has problems with balls pitched in curve and he does not recommend the player to the Brave. He also tells Johnny about Gentry&#39;s problem. But when Phillip advises Vince to hire Gentry, Vince&#39;s decision affects the lives of Gus, Mickey and Johnny.</p> Tue, 16 May 2017 00:00:00 GMT May 17 - After School Movies http://home.oceancitylibrary.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.pageDetails&amp;id=76370 <p droid="" font-size:="" line-height:="" style="outline: 0px; margin: 1em 0px; font-family: &quot;Droid Sans&quot;, sans-serif; font-size: 0.938em; line-height: 20.8px;"><img alt="" src="https://imageserv11.team-logic.com/mediaLibrary/2021/medfilm-reel_1.jpg" style="outline: 0px; border: 0px; vertical-align: middle; display: block; margin: 0px auto; text-align: center;" /></p> <p droid="" font-size:="" line-height:="" style="outline: 0px; margin: 1em 0px; font-family: &quot;Droid Sans&quot;, sans-serif; font-size: 0.938em; line-height: 20.8px; text-align: center;" text-align:=""><span style="outline: 0px; font-size: 26px;">Every Wednesday After School at&nbsp;<span style="outline: 0px; font-weight: bolder;">3pm*</span></span></p> <p droid="" font-size:="" line-height:="" style="outline: 0px; margin: 1em 0px; font-family: &quot;Droid Sans&quot;, sans-serif; font-size: 0.938em; line-height: 20.8px; text-align: center;" text-align:=""><span style="outline: 0px; font-weight: bolder;"><span style="outline: 0px; font-size: 26px;">Free Snacks!!</span></span></p> <p droid="" font-size:="" line-height:="" style="outline: 0px; margin: 1em 0px; font-family: &quot;Droid Sans&quot;, sans-serif; font-size: 0.938em; line-height: 20.8px; text-align: center;" text-align:=""><span style="outline: 0px; font-size: 22px;"><span style="outline: 0px; font-weight: bolder;"><span style="outline: 0px;">*1pm for early dismissa</span></span></span></p> Wed, 17 May 2017 00:00:00 GMT May 18 - Lincoln Center Local Free Screenings http://home.oceancitylibrary.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.pageDetails&amp;id=77673 <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;"><span style="font-size:36px;">Lincoln Center Local</span></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;"><span style="font-size:36px;">Free Screenings</span></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:26px;">Thursday, May 18th at 6:30pm<br /> at the Ocean City Free Public Library!<br /> <br /> From Bocelli to Barton: The Richard Tucker Opera Gala</span></p> <p><em><span style="font-family:arial,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:14.0pt;">This is a screening of The Richard Tucker Opera Gala 2015 which was performed at David Geffen Hall on November 1, 2015. </span></span></em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="background:white;"><span style="color:#121212;"><span style="font-family:arial,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:14.0pt;">The Richard Tucker Music Foundation Gala&nbsp; concert-the most anticipated event of the opera season-features Andrea Bocelli, Ren&eacute;e Fleming, Angela Gheorghiu, Isabel Leonard, Christine Goerke, Lawrence Brownlee, Stephen Costello, Nadine Sierra, and Piotr Bezcala, along with this year&rsquo;s Richard Tucker Award winner, Jamie Barton.</span></span></span></span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="letter-spacing:-.15pt;"><span style="font-family:arial,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:14.0pt;">Lincoln Center Local partners with your local library to bring exclusive free screenings of Lincoln Center&rsquo;s finest performances directly to your neighborhood.&nbsp;</span></span></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="font-size:20px;"><span style="font-family:arial,sans-serif;">UPCOMING SCREENINGS AT THE LIBRARY</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:20px;">Thursday, April 27th&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;6:30pm<br /> &ldquo;Curtain Up: The School of American Ballet Workshop Performances&rdquo;</span></p> <p><span style="font-size:20px;">Thursday, May 18th&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;6:30pm<br /> &ldquo;We Like It Like That!
