    Meet photographer Susie Schmieder at a reception celebrating her exhibit here at the Library.  Entitled Everywhere, the show features photographs taken at many locations across the United States and Canada. 

    "My earliest memory showing my love of photography is at age 4 carrying a Kodak Brownie everywhere I went.  I was always in possession of a camera as I never wanted to miss an opportunity for a great show.   My subject matter varies - I shoot what I see based on where I am.  In some I hope to make a subtle social  statement, to trigger discussion, or to educate.  Others, as in this exhibit are mostly found moments of interesting composition, color and /or beauty".  - Susie Schmieder

    The reception is free and open to the public.  Refreshments will be served.

    How can cicadas survive—and thrive—at temperatures pushing 115°F? Do hummingbirds know what they're up against before they migrate over the Gulf of Mexico? Why do some trees stop growing taller even when three months of warm weather remain? With awe and unmatched expertise, Bernd Heinrich's Summer World never stops exploring the beautifully complex interactions of animals and plants with nature, giving extraordinary depth to the relationships between habitat and the warming of the earth.

    We are all actors in a real-time cultural and environmental drama. It can be scary and confusing, but also rewarding and incredibly creative, and we need hope and a vision. Deep Living offers that vision. With the help of anecdotes, insight, a subtle sense of humor, information, and cultural criticism Deep Living shows how to find meaning and spirit in our most fundamental connections, those with nature, with food and how we grow it, with each other, and with our bodies, but also proposes a grander vision for these seemingly turbulent times. Deep Living urges to go deeper and imagine a sustainable, beautiful, spiritual, socially just, co-operative, good-for-all and not just good-for-some culture.
