Another Busy Week at the Palisades Library for Children, Teens and Adults

Flights of Fantasy Theatre will take place on Wednesday.

The Saturday programing looks particularly interesting. First, residents can enjoy the Gluck Reed Trio at 11 a.m., grab a quick lunch somewhere in the village, such as DELIzioso Cinque on Monument (which offers soups, salads, sandwiches, and pizza by the slice) and then head back for a 2 p.m. showing of a film noir series “In a Lonely Place.” All events will be held in the Palisades Library Community Room.


How to Write and Publish a Book will be held at 6:15 p.m. Santa Monica-based author and writing coach Jasmyne Boswell will present the free program. Whether writing your memoir for your family, a business book or a fiction book for fun, writing and publishing a book is an extraordinary experience. Attendees will learn the many ways this can be accomplished and how do get started.

A Teens Leading Change event will be held from 1 to 3 p.m., which will be Rock Painting for a Native Plant Garden. The program is for kids of all ages. In addition to rock painting there will be snacks. Makerspace will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. directly after rock painting.


There is a special children’s program “Flights of Fantasy Story Theatre” from 3:30 to 4 p.m. The incomparable duo, Lorrie Oshatz and Theresa Amy, bring their fresh spin on folk tales, fables, and poetry in an interactive and entertaining vaudeville-style show for children of all ages. They celebrate the humor and wisdom inherent in the human experience, drawing upon the wealth of multicultural literature. Be on time for this fast-paced, storytelling theatrical delight!

This program is made possible with the generous support of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles.

UCLA Gluck Reed Trio will perform at 11 a.m. Since 1996, the UCLA Gluck Fellows Music Outreach Program has been the beneficiary of a generous grant from the Max H. Gluck Foundation, which enables the finest UCLA music students to offer educational performances at over 150 schools, libraries, senior centers, and other nontraditional venues throughout Los Angeles County.

The pop-up Noir Film Festival continues at 2 p.m. with In a Lonely Place (1950). The film directed by Nicholas Ray, is based on the Dorothy Hughes novel which Palisades Library’s Mysterious Book Club just discussed.  The film chronicles a gifted but washed-up screenwriter with a hair-trigger temper—Humphrey Bogart, who becomes the prime suspect in a brutal Tinseltown murder. The only person who can supply an alibi for him is a seductive neighbor (Gloria Grahame) with her own troubled past.
