THURSDAY June 14th at 7pm: THE HAUNTER OF THE DARK - H.P. Lovecraft

"I have seen the dark universe yawning"
THE HAUNTER OF THE DARK

In Providence, Rhode Island, Robert Blake, a young writer with an interest in the occult, becomes fascinated by a large disused church on Federal Hill which he can see from his lodgings on the city's Upper East side. His researches reveal that the church has a sinister history involving a cult called the Church of Starry Wisdom and is dreaded by the local migrant inhabitants as being haunted by a primeval evil. 

The being can only go abroad in darkness, and is hence constrained to the tower at night by the presence of the lights of the city. However, when the city electric power is weakened during a thunderstorm, the local people are terrified by the sounds coming from the church. "I see it-- coming here-- hell-wind-- titan-blur-- black wings-- Yog-Sothoth save me-- the three-lobed burning eye..."

Book: Haunter of the Dark
Author: H.P. Lovecraft

WEDNESDAY, June 13TH at 7PM: HELLO, UNIVERSE Concludes

Caledonia concludes Newbery Medalist Erin Entrada Kelly’s funny and poignant story about fate, destiny, and unexpected friendships.

Told from four intertwining points of view—two boys and two girls—the novel celebrates bravery, being different, and finding your inner bayani (hero).

When we left Virgilio, he was trapped in a well with only his imagination and Gulliver the guinea pig to keep him company.  But is he truly alone?  As characters his Lola has instilled in his consciousness from Philippine folklore visit him, and the friends he doesn't fully realize he has search for him, Virgilio is poised on the brink of the universe.

RUSH 2112: ANTHEM

By 2112, the world is controlled by the "Priests of the Temples of Syrinx", who determine the content of every facet of life. Then a man discovers a guitar and learns to play different kind of music.

The album is loosely based on the novella 'Anthem' by Ayn Rand that takes place at an unspecified future date when mankind has entered another Dark Age. Technological advancement is now carefully planned and the concept of individuality has been eliminated. A young man known as Equality 7-2521 rebels by doing secret scientific research. When his activity is discovered, he flees into the wilderness with the girl he loves.

SUNDAY, June 3rd: TEA TIME at Baker Street - A Study in Scarlet


Tea Time returns to Baker Street with the adventure that began it all! A Study in Scarlet (presented in four parts, beginning today)

With this story, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's introduces Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, who would become two of the most famous characters in popular fiction. The title is derived from a speech given by Holmes, a consulting detective, to his friend and chronicler Watson on the nature of his work, in which he describes the story's murder investigation as his "study in scarlet": "There's the scarlet thread of murder running through the colorless skein of life, and our duty is to unravel it, and isolate it, and expose every inch of it."

The novel is written in two major sections.  Part I begins by establishing the role of Dr. Watson as narrator and sets up the narrative conceit that the work to follow is not fiction.  It charts the introduction of Holmes and Watson, their installation at 221B Baker Street, and the discovery of one Enoch Drebber - dead on a crime scene that displays plenty of blood, but no wound on the corpse. Then there's the enigmatic scrawling in blood of the word "RACHE" in the nearby plaster.

A Study in Scarlet attracted little public interest when it first appeared. Only 11 complete copies of the magazine in which the story first appeared, Beeton's Christmas Annual for 1887, are known to exist now and they have considerable value. Although Conan Doyle wrote 56 short stories featuring Holmes, A Study in Scarlet is one of only four full-length novels in the original canon.

This story was the first work of detective fiction to incorporate the magnifying glass as an investigative tool.

TUESDAY, May 29th at 7PM: THE COLD DISH Continues

Two years ago, four boys were put on trial for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now one of them – Cody Pritchard – is dead, shot and dumped in with a local farmer’s sheep.

For Walt Longmire, it means his hope of finishing out his term as sheriff of Wyoming’s Absaroka county in peace and quiet is at an end; instead, he finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation.

Plenty of people had cause for wanting Cody Prichard dead but who had the guts to do the deed? And are his three compadres next on the hit list? For Longmire, it means facing one of the more volatile and challenging cases in his twenty-four years as sheriff. One in which he means to ensure that revenge, so often regarded as a dish best served cold, is never served at all.

Join Kayden OConnell as he reads the first volume of Craig Johnson’s tales of Sheriff Walt Longmire.

Join us for a Special Holiday Weekend Event ...


@ 1:30pm: TEA TIME on The African Queen
Corwyn, Kayden, and Cale live in voice in Ceiliúradh Glen on Holly Kai as they present the Lux Radio Theater script of The African Queen, based on C.S. Forrester's novel and the 1951 motion picture. 

The story opens in August/September 1914. Rose Sayer, a 33-year-old Englishwoman, is the companion and housekeeper of her brother Samuel, an Anglican missionary in German-colonized Tanganyika (present-day Tanzania). World War I has recently begun, and the German military commander of the area has conscripted all the natives; the village is deserted, and only Rose and her dying brother remain. Samuel dies during the night and Rose is alone. That day, another man arrives at the village: this is a Cockney named Allnutt, who is the mechanic and skipper of the African Queen, a steam-powered launch, owned by a Belgian mining corporation, that plies the upper reaches of the Ulanga River. Allnutt's two-man crew has deserted him at the rumors of war and conscription. Allnutt buries Samuel Sayer and takes Rose back to the African Queen, where they consider what they should do.

@ 2:30pm Jungle Boogie
DJ Dano Bookmite spins tunes from 1951-53, and some special selections with a jungle beat.  Put on your dancing shoes (or take them off!) in Ceiliúradh Glen for a wild time, and some great fun.
