Winter Read Kickoff and Artist Reception: "Las Catrinas: A Celebration of Mexican Culture" @ The Community Library
6:00 pm
Join us as we kick off the 2023 Winter Read of Sabrina & Corina: Stories by Kali Fajardo-Anstine. We’ll be opening a new exhibit, giving away books, enjoying live music from Damian Rodriguez and treats, and sharing how you can participate in this community-wide read! The exhibit, “Las Catrinas: A Celebration of Mexican Culture,” features the exceptional papier-mâché art of Mexican artist Carlos Lecanda and showcases a variety of traditional characters with an exclusive art piece inspired by Fajardo-Anstine’s stories, all crafted with intricate detail and expert technique. Carlos Lecanda, who will join us for the event, is a skilled and highly regarded artist who has been creating beautiful and expressive papier-mâché art for many years and has received numerous public acclaim for its craftsmanship and cultural significance. The exhibit is a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, as expressed through the art of catrinas. These elegantly dressed skeletons are a popular theme in Mexican art and folklore, and are often used to honor the deceased and celebrate the cycle of life. Lecanda has captured the essence of these characters in a way that is both beautiful and thought-provoking. The exhibit will be open to the public from January 30 through Spring 2023. The Winter Read is ...

"Sperm Whales: The Gentle Goliaths of the Ocean" with Gaelin Rosenwaks @ The Community Library
6:00 pm
For centuries, the sperm whale has fascinated us—the world’s largest toothed predator. Like many of our co-inhabitants on the planet, sperm whales were nearly hunted to the brink of extinction. While the most famous sperm whale of all is Moby Dick, it was a young male nicknamed Physty—who fell ill in the early 1980s and came ashore just off Long Island, New York—that captured the heart of Gaelin Rosenwaks and started her on a career in marine science: studying, protecting, and documenting the world’s most marvelous ocean species. SPERM WHALES: THE GENTLE GOLIATHS OF THE OCEANS is a beautiful look at these magnificent animals. In the waters off Dominica, Rosenwaks observed—eye to eye—the close bond between mother and child firsthand. What she found is that these animals live in matriarchal family units made up of remarkable females that stay together for generations. Like elephants and humans, they take care of one another. She was able to document them sleeping, playing, nursing, and so much more about their vibrant lives both under the sea, and above it. Through her breathtaking photography and inspiring words, readers can join Rosenwaks and the whales and be inspired to help save them for future generations. ...

Who comes to mind when you think about environmental activism? Do you think back to John Muir, or to present day activists like Greta Thunberg? The organization Green Latinos is working to include the Latino/a/x voice and story to the forefront. “Environmental stewardship is part of our cultural heritage.

"Warrior Women" Film Screening and Q&A @ The Community Library
6:00 pm
In the 1970s, with the swagger of unapologetic Indianness, organizers of the American Indian Movement (AIM) fought for Native liberation and survival as a community of extended families. “Warrior Women” is the story of Madonna Thunder Hawk, one such AIM leader who shaped a kindred group of activists’ children – including her daughter Marcy – into the “We Will Remember” Survival School as a Native alternative to government-run education. Together, Madonna and Marcy fought for Native rights in an environment that made them more comrades than mother- daughter. Today, with Marcy now a mother herself, both are still at the forefront of Native issues, fighting against the environmental devastation of the Dakota Access Pipeline and for Indigenous cultural values. Through a circular Indigenous style of storytelling, this film explores what it means to navigate a movement and motherhood and how activist legacies are passed down and transformed from generation to generation in the context of colonizing government that meets Native resistance with violence. The film runs 64 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Dr. Elizabeth A. Castle, who will join us remotely. This program is part of the 2023 community-wide Winter Read.

Join your local libraries for the closing of the 2023 Winter Read, featuring keynote speaker Kali Fajardo-Anstine, author and National Book Award Finalist.

The stories serve as powerful meditations on friendships, identity, mothers and daughters, and the deep-rooted truths of our homelands. Register online, as space is limited. The event will also be streamed on Vimeo. The Winter Read is an annual collaboration between The Community Library in Ketchum, Hailey Public Library, Bellevue Public Library, and the Stanley Community Library. Events are held January-March.
