Who is the greatest drummer of all time? The backbone of the ensemble, this important figure is often shrouded in mystery and overshadowed by the rest of the band. Being a great drummer depends on more than just technical ability. The best drummers contribute a significant sound or style to their group and leave an indelible mark on the audience.
Ringo Starr of The Beatles provided a steady back beat and creative flourishes that helped make this band the legend it is today. Pete Best, the original drummer for the Beatles, was with the band for 2 years.
The Valdez-Perry Branch Library staff and Your Name in Graffiti invite you to the Graffiti Art Project Unveiling and celebration of art, community connections and graffiti project participants' achievement on Wednesday, July 28 at 6 p.m. at the Valdez-Perry Branch Library.
Shakespeare's play, Hamlet, has had a wide variety of film interpretations created based on its tragic tale of betrayal, murder and madness. What is it about Hamlet that appeals to us so? How many famous actors who have portrayed Hamlet can you name? I've found eight that the library owns!
The Bad Sleep Well (1960) Akira Kurosawa's adaptation projects the familiar Shakespearean plot onto the complex world of Japanese corporate intrigue with legend Toshiro Mifune as the Hamlet-esque character.
Hamlet (2009) David Tennant shines in this BBC production filmed on location and starring the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Looking for something great to read? Need to know what title is next in a series? Where do you look for reviews and author information for your next book group title? Visit us at Ross Cherry Creek Branch Library, Wednesday July 28 at noon for a tour of the library database Novelist.
Novelist is just one of the amazing databases that the library makes available free with your library card. I love helping book club members find that next great title, as well as find supplemental information that takes the conversation deeper when they meet.
One Book, One Denver is Mayor Hickenlooper's citywide book club created to build community and stimulate people to read. Denver citizens, young and old, are encouraged to join others in the shared experience of simultaneously reading the same book and participating in related events.
Who is more talented: the architect who can envision space taking shape with glass and steel, the engineer who helps translate the vision to firm reality or the crafts trade who make it happen? No matter who you choose, Santiago Calatrava creates astonishing designs.
While the library has several books about Calatrava's designs, we are fortunate to have a translation of his dissertation which outlines his creative process. Take time to meet Calatrava and hear about his plans for the Denver International Airport on Wednesday, July 28 at the Denver Art Museum in the Sharp Auditorium from 5:30- 6:30 p.m. The presentation is free and open to the public with no reservations required.
King Tut and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs is currently exhibiting at the Denver Art Museum. 50 objects from the tomb of the legendary ruler are on display including golden sandals straight from the king's feet!
Egypt's other legendary rulers, Khafre and Hatchepsut, have artifacts on display as well.
Did you know that Tutankhamun's mother was Nefertiti? Astonishingly, he became pharaoh when he was just 9 years old. Perhaps less shocking, he didn't live to see 20. Many speculate that his life was snuffed out by foul play.
As a kid I marked time not by the seasons but by events. My most favorite event was the annual back to school shopping trip. My siblings and I would munch down on K-Mart’s blue light special sandwiches and parade like five hungry caterpillars collecting our yellow no. 2 pencils, pink erasers, and crayons. There is nothing like opening up a new box of crayons and breathing deeply.
I still celebrate the season by taking stock in my apartment. What needs a fresh coat of paint or where I can add new color? Renovation expectations are managed by a limited budget and talent. I rely on the experts like Todd Oldham, Libby Langdon, and Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan but the library has so many talented designers you can take home for a weekend.
Can't afford a trip to a far off land right now? Join us at the newly renovated Ross Cherry Creek Branch Library on Tuesday, July 27 at noon, for delectable food of the region and riveting conversation during Lunch Travels: India! Visit Mumbai, Pune and the Arabian coast as your guide shares pictures, travel tips and anecdotes from her recent adventure.
Did you know that there are about 3,000 languages, including dialects, spoken in India? The library's language database, Mango Languages, can help you learn the national language of India, Hindu, or even Urdu!
