    Camden Conference Talk: Crossing to the Dark Side, Why I Turned My back on Objective Journalism

    Rockland Public Library - Community Room

    Tom Fiedler

    The Camden Conference presents Tom Fiedler. Tom will discuss how, after nearly four decades as a political reporter and editor, he concluded that journalism was no longer sufficient to confront the crisis that he believes is facing our nation. Thomas E. (Tom) Fiedler served as dean of Boston University’s College of Communication from 2008 to 2019, after a 36-year career as an award-winning investigative reporter, political columnist, White House correspondent, war correspondent, editorial-page editor and, ultimately, as the executive editor of The Miami Herald.

    Tom’s reporting on the 1988 presidential election, and particularly his stories exposing candidate Gary Hart’s scandalous affair with a young Miami model, won him the Society of Professional Journalists’ top award. In 1991, his investigative report into an extremist cult’s political tactics was part of a Miami Herald series that won a Pulitzer Prize. Under his leadership as executive editor between 2001 and 2007, the newspaper won two additional Pulitzer Prizes and was a finalist for a third. He also led the newsroom’s transition to multi-media operations, producing journalism not only for the newspaper, but also for television, public radio and the Web.

Unbeknownst to Carl, Russell, an overeager 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer who has never ventured beyond his backyard, is in the wrong place at the wrong time — Carl’s front porch! The world’s most unlikely duo reach new heights and meet fantastic friends like Dug, a dog with a special collar that allows him to speak, and Kevin, a rare 13-foot tall flightless bird. Stuck together in the wilds of the jungle, Carl realizes that sometimes life’s biggest adventures aren’t the ones you set out looking for.

    Mural Panel Celebration

    Rockland Public Library - Community Room

    Join Arts in Action and Rockland Public Library to celebrate new mural panels created by young Rockland artist Winter Adams, for the vibrant Hallway Mural. These new paintings were designed and painted by Adams with the Library staff’s input and encouragement and created as an independent project last spring. A freshman at Oceanside High school, Adams is among the young artists who envisioned and participated in the creation of the original panels made in 2016. Let’s celebrate her talent and commend her effort, care, and commit to community arts!

    Paintings for this community mural began in 2016, through an exciting ongoing collaboration between Arts in Action, Library Director Amy Levine, and the devoted staff at the Rockland Public Library. A core group of youth artists and community volunteers designed and painted 17 paintings during the first year. All panels are original artwork created to celebrate themes of
    learning, the library as a community center, a love of words, and the power of imagination! Young artists in this program continue to create and bring new panels to life each year,
    contributing to this imaginative and spirited hallway.

    Arts in Action’s Community Mural Art Workshop focuses on collaborative mural work and creating one-of-a-kind beautification pieces while also creating opportunities for young artists to showcase and share their talents in actionable ways by coupling fine arts education with community arts projects. The Arts in Action mural program is hosted by the Flanagan Community Building/YMCA and run by artist Alexis Iammarino. AiA is a program of Rockland After-School Alliance (RASA) and supported by RSU13 Adult & Community Education with support from the ANONIMO Foundation.

    Festival of Trees Tree Auction and Holiday Inn Tour

    Rockland Public Library

    The Friends of Rockland Public Library are holding their annual “Festival of Trees” Silent Auction. We will have on display over 30 tabletop trees generously decorated by local businesses. Come visit the Library, all decked out for the holidays. Bidding starts at 1:00, and ends at 4:00. Stop in, have a warm cup of cocoa or cider, some treats (baked by our amazing Friends Bakers), and bid on your favorite tree(s)! Come do some holiday shopping – The Book Stop will also be open from 1:00 – 4:00.
    The decorated trees will be “silent auctioned” off in conjunction with The Historic Inns of Rockland Holiday Tour. During the tour, people can visit the inns in the neighborhood of the Library. Stop in at the Limerock Inn, the Berry Manor Inn, and the Granite Inn. The inns will be decorated for the season, as a part of the Downtown Rockland Festival of Lights Celebration. All proceeds from the Tree Auction and House Tour will go directly to support our wonderful Rockland Public Library!
    We are overwhelmed with gratitude for the generosity of the many businesses that happily agreed to decorate a tree for this fundraiser. Community support for our Library has never been so strong. The Friends of Rockland Public Library work tirelessly to raise both money and public awareness to support the Library. Want to have a great time right now while supporting the library? Come to the Historic Inns Holiday House Tour and the Festival of Trees Silent Auction on Saturday, November 30th! !
