Coming to Seanchai Library starting June 5th: JUNE SHORTS!


Yeah! It's time to dust off your sandals, flip-flops, and freshen up those shorts and sun-dresses for the imminent months of sunshine and warmth.

We've taken shorts on in a different way. We've combed through lists of "the best" or "the greatest" short stories in the English language (one list was 500 entries long!  Seriously!). We've created a list of our own, and included some short stories that are "our favorites". We'll be sharing them live at the various outdoor venues at our #SecondLife home on Nowhereville. 

We'll provide the lemonade and some "picnic-ables." Join us fireside!

MONDAY April 17th at 7pm: SciFi Adventure - GOLDEN COMPASS

        

- Exciting Book Series with Gyro Muggins -
GOLDEN COMPASS

Lyra is rushing to the cold, far North, where witch clans and armored bears rule. North, where the Gobblers take the children they steal—including her friend Roger. North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world.
Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra: a savage, a schemer, a liar, and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want.

But what Lyra doesn't know is that to help one of them will be to betray the other...

A masterwork of storytelling and suspense, Philip Pullman's award-winning The Golden Compass is the first in the His Dark Materials series, which continues with The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.

NOTE: Beginning in April, Seanchai Library will be transitioning its programming model from the multiple weekly sessions that have been presented for the past 15 years, to a model that includes quarterly stories/series & special projects such as The Dickens Project and the recent Evil Under The Sun project at SLEA.

Some of the events that are currently hosted will continue to take place weekly, including Russell Eponym live, Seanchai Flicks, and supporting Tales with Friends with space for their weekly gatherings. All current series will continue until they conclude.

These will be the only changes in our operations at this time. We are grateful for the community that has grown up around Seanchai Library over the years. We hope that our many friends and supporters continue to join us as we explore the stories that excite and inspire us, presented live in Second Life.

THURSDAY March 16th at 7pm: DARBY O'GILL and The Good People

 

 Now, What About Your Fourth Wish? -
DARBY O'GILL

The Only True History, as told by Brian Connors, the King of the Good People, to Father Cassidy, and afterwards related by Jerry Murtaugh a Reliable Car Driver, who goes between Kilcuny and Balinderg
THE most lonesome bridle-path in all Ireland leads from Tom Healy's cottage down the sides of the hills, along the edge of the valley, till it raiches the highroad that skirts the great mountain, Sleive-na-mon. One blusthering, unaisy night, Father Cassidy, on his way home from a sick call, rode over that same path. It wasn't strange that the priest, as his horse ambled along, should be thinking of that other night in Darby O'Gill's kitchen - the night when he met with the Good People; for there, off to the left, towered and threatened Sleive-na-mon, the home of the fairies.

@ 7pm: THE QUIET MAN with Caledonia
Shawn Kelvin, a blithe young lad of twenty, went to the States to seek his fortune. And fifteen years thereafter he returned to his native Kerry, his blitheness sobered and his youth dried to the core, and whether he had made his fortune or whether he had not, no one could be knowing for certain. For he was a quiet man, not given to talking about himself and the things he had done.

Maurice Walsh was an Irish novelist best known for the short story The Quiet Man which was later made into an Oscar-winning movie directed by John Ford and starring John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara. Walsh was born in 1879 in Ballydonoghue near Listowel, Co. Kerry, Ireland. He was one of Ireland's best-selling authors in the 1930s.

Both sessions today on stream.
