He was restless and lacked direction, and the idea of dropping everything and moving to the ends of the earth was irresistibly romantic.

He warns the trend spells disaster for human progress.&nbsp; Michael&#39;s new book,&nbsp;<em>Denialism: How Irrational Thinking Hinders Scientific Progress, Harms the Planet and Threatens Our Lives</em>,&nbsp;dives into a worrisome strain of modern life --&nbsp;a vocal anti-science bias that may prevent us from making the right choices for our future. Michael studies how the active movements against vaccines, genetically engineered food, science-based medicine and biotechnological solutions to climate change may actually put the world at risk. (For instance, anti-vaccination activists could soon trigger to the US a return of polio, not to mention the continuing rise of measles.) More insidiously, the chilling effect caused by the new denialism may prevent useful science from being accomplished.</span></span></span></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, and the TED talks feature experts in a variety of fields who present unique ways of looking at their respective fields of expertise.&nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Everyone is welcome to these free sessions.&nbsp;</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>A discussion will take place after the lecture.&nbsp;</strong></p> Sat, 24 Jun 2017 00:00:00 GMT Jun 26 - Brown Bag Craft Club: Ages 6-10 http://home.oceancitylibrary.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.pageDetails&amp;id=79058 <p style="text-align: center;"><em><span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 255);"><strong><span style="font-size: 20px;">Brown Bag Craft Club</span></strong></span></em></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://imageserv11.team-logic.com/mediaLibrary/2021/medTurtle_1.png" style="margin: 0px 8px 2px 0px; padding: 4px; float: left; display: inline;" /><strong>Mondays, 6/26 through 8/14</strong></p> <p><strong>Ages 6 - 10</strong></p> <p><strong>Noon to 1 PM</strong></p> <p><strong>Children&#39;s Activity Room</strong></p> <p><strong>Kids bring a bag lunch. <span style="color: rgb(0, 0, 255);">Registration Required.</span></strong></p> <p><strong>Contact Maureen at 609-399-2434 x5241</strong></p> Mon, 26 Jun 2017 00:00:00 GMT Jun 26 - Meet the Author: Connie Bombaci of Hogan's Hope http://home.oceancitylibrary.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.pageDetails&amp;id=78976 <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 20px;">MEET THE AUTHOR!<br /> <span style="color: rgb(255, 140, 0);"><span style="background-color: rgb(128, 0, 0);">TALK, Q &amp; A, AND BOOK SIGNING WITH AUTHOR CONNIE BOMBACI</span></span></span><br /> <br /> <span style="color: rgb(128, 0, 0);"><strong><em><span style="font-size: 20px;">Author of Hogan&rsquo;s Hope:<br /> A Deaf Hero&rsquo;s Inspirational Quest for Love and Acceptance</span></em></strong></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: 18px;">Monday, June 26th, 2017<br /> 6:30pm, Room N116</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><br /> <img alt="" src="https://imageserv11.team-logic.com/mediaLibrary/2021/smHogan_s_Hope.png" style="margin: 0px 8px 2px 0px; padding: 4px; float: left; display: inline;" />Deaf dogs are often destroyed, mistreated, or abandoned.&nbsp; Hogan&rsquo;s Hope is the tale of a legendary deaf canine hero who, after being rescued from neglect, prevailed as he learned over 65 signs in American Sign Language and thereby providing the hope of life for many deaf dogs worldwide.&nbsp; His courage to overcome challenges and prejudice continues to give inspiration to anyone, human or pet, that accomplishment, success, and genuine love are truly possible.&nbsp;&nbsp; Through his lifetime of determination, his story offers us the promise that we are capable of achieving an amazingly &ldquo;ordinary&rdquo; life and a life away from isolation.&nbsp; From hardship to success, hope gave the inspiration for overcoming any challenge.&nbsp; His journey of valor reveals dreams come true and offers insight into the world of true faith, unconditional love, and endless hope.&nbsp; Indeed, it is a story that needs to be told.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;">ALL AGES WELCOME</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Books will be available for purchase and signing.</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Free Event!!</strong></p> <p><img alt="" src="https://imageserv11.team-logic.com/mediaLibrary/2021/smConnie_Bombaci.png" style="margin: 0px 8px 2px 0px; padding: 4px; float: left; display: inline;" />Connie Bombaci, a retired educator, is resolute in her love for animals, belief in the goodness of all God&rsquo;s creations and desire to provide encouragement no matter what the challenge.&nbsp; She appeared with Hogan on shows such as Oprah, Dateline, Jack Hanna&rsquo;s Animal Adventures, and Amazing Tails.

S. Wang started creating fabric art more than 20 years ago. With a found piece of foam board and some colorful fabric, he brought images to life. An image&nbsp;or a drawing is cut into the foam board and pieces of fabric are tucked into the slits. The results look like a cross between&nbsp;a painting, stained glass and mosaic. &nbsp;But these pictures &nbsp;have texture and sometimes 3-dimensional aspects. Mr. Wang has been generous with his technique,&nbsp;&nbsp;teaching others how to create fabric art by demonstrating and teaching at art centers.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /> Come and see the different styles of these fabric artists.<br /> <strong><span style="font-size: 20px;">Friday, July 7th, 2017<br /> 9 am-5 pm</span></strong><br /> Ocean City Community Center Atrium&diams;1735 Simpson Avenue&diams;Ocean City, NJ 08226<br /> For more information, please contact Julie Brown at 609-399-2434 x5222.</p> Fri, 07 Jul 2017 00:00:00 GMT Jul 7 - Seashore Story Hour: Ages 4 - 6 http://home.oceancitylibrary.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.pageDetails&amp;id=79064 <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="color: rgb(165, 42, 42);"><em><span style="font-size: 20px;">Seashore Story Hour</span></em></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="https://imageserv11.team-logic.com/mediaLibrary/2021/medSunny_Reader.png" style="margin: 0px auto;

Great travel writing is less about the person telling the story than it is how their experiences reveal the character of a place and people, taking the reader into the journey. &nbsp;In this workshop we will talk about various forms of travel writing and then we will explore this most engaging and storytelling form of travel writing: narrative travel writing. We will delve into the deeper and more timeless stories and experiences of a place. In doing so, each participant will draw on his or her own travels, which can be as near as a local setting right here in southern New Jersey or as far flung as travels to Vietnam or France or elsewhere. In our two hours together, we will engage exercises that unearth the stories of journeys each person wants to tell, we will hone in on what those stories are at their core, and we will explore ways to write stories at their best.&nbsp;</p> <p>Bring a blank notebook/notepad and pen/pencil to the workshop. Be prepared to have fun brainstorming, reading out loud some great travel writing samples (provided by Beebe), doing engaging writing exercises, and discussing with each other the results toward seeking the central spine and direction of your stories.<br /> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; *Registration required*</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>Beebe Bahrami is an award-winning travel writer and author of several books, including her recently released travel narratives on southwestern France, Caf&eacute; Oc (Shanti Arts Publishing) and Caf&eacute; Neandertal (Counterpoint Press) and her books on Spain, The Spiritual Traveler Spain (Paulist Press) and Historic Walking Guides: Madrid (DestinWorld Publishing).

There was something about the hands-on experience of moving the little pieces of tesserae into a design that was so satisfying and therapeutic. Inspired by the natural beauty of the coast and the feeling it evokes, Michele combines bright colors and interesting materials like glass and mirror to make happy vibrant designs.&nbsp; Spirituality and love of life are themes that infuse and define her work.&nbsp; Michele also teaches mosaic classes so she can share her passion with others.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 24 Jul 2017 00:00:00 GMT Jul 25 - Graphic Novels Book Club http://home.oceancitylibrary.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=content.pageDetails&amp;id=78970 <p style="outline: 0px;
