Two new and exciting programs are coming to APL in November, made possible thanks to your gifts to the Annual Appeal!
Fake News, Real Teens: Problems and Possibilities at Washington Ave and Ceramics Class with Sarah Haze at Arbor Hill begin next month. Keep an eye out for our Person Behind the Program series, where we will speak with the librarians who initiated these innovative programs. In the meantime, sign up for these great programs and tell a friend!
This innovative program explores the issue of fake news and how it impacts on young people. There will be two meetings: the first will focus on the concept of the term, the second on possible solutions. Both will feature talks from experts in the field of media – including print and broadcast journalists, as well as academics. It is open to participants of all ages, and there will be plenty of opportunity for discussion of the topic. For teenagers, attending this program is the first step in a media literacy boot camp and workshop opportunity, scheduled for 2019. This program is made possible by an Action Grant from Humanities New York, as well as the donors to the APLF Annual Appeal.
Starting on Tuesday November 6th, participants aged 18+ have the opportunity to learn all about ceramics with local artist Sarah Haze. The group will meet every Tuesday for 4 weeks. Students will learn a variety of skills and techniques under the gaze of a professional. Explore a new hobby or get back into clay. Bring a friend! Registration is required.
Sarah Haze is a full-time maker and the founder of Round Designs, a creative brand focused on bringing joy and whimsy into everyday life. Sarah holds a BFA in Sculpture & Philosophy.
Registration required for both programs: Sign up as soon as possible.
