September Art Show
Anne H. Brock Community Room
KAY CASSILL
Opening Reception:
Thursday, September 7, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.

Film: Auroville: City of the Dawn
with Ellen Anthony

Wednesday, September 27, 6:30 p.m.

Travel with Ellen Anthony to the experimental community of Auroville in southern India.  The dream of Auroville is that of a place where human relationships, which are normally based almost exclusively on competition and strife, would be replaced by relationships of emulation in doing well, of collaboration and real brotherhood. Residents come from some 49 nations, from all age groups, and from all social classes, backgrounds, and cultures. The population of the township is constantly growing, but currently stands at around 2,500 people, of whom approximately one-third are Indian. Today Auroville is recognized as the first and only internationally endorsed ongoing experiment in human unity and transformation of consciousness, also concerned with, and practically researching, sustainable living, and the future cultural, environmental, social, and spiritual needs of mankind. The 55-minute film will be followed by a Q&A with Ellen, who visited the community last February.

Next Chapter Book Club

The Truro Public Library is proud to host a Next Chapter Book Club for intellectually or developmentally disabled adolescents and adults on the Outer Cape with local Program Coordinator Barbara Klipper. The Next Chapter Book Club is a nationwide program that provides the fun and focus of a book club to members of our communities who often lack opportunities to explore written works in a relaxed, engaging, and constructive setting. The fall session starts on September 26, with facilitator trainings on Sept. 12, and Sept. 23.  Please consider joining us! Contact Tricia or Maggie for more details.
