Tribes, by Nina Raine, is a thoughtful yet funny portrayal of how one family navigates the fact that their son Billy is deaf. Billy’s unconventional family has tried to raise him as part of the hearing world and neglected to adopt American Sign Language (ASL) in their home. Now Billy has returned from university and is again struggling to integrate into his hearing family. When Billy meets Sylvia, a young woman who is becoming deaf and has been raised by a deaf family, he finally discovers what it means to be heard. She teaches Billy sign language and exposes him to a whole new community of others who are deaf or going deaf. Tribes follows Billy’s attempt to be a part of many worlds at once: his family’s, Sylvia’s, and the Deaf community, all while striving to find his own identity.
The most nominated play of its season, Tribes won the following:
▪ 2012 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play
▪ 2012 New York Drama Critics Circle Award
▪ 2012 Off-Broadway Alliance Award – Best Play
Lost Nation will be again be doing a prepared reading of excerpts from this play!
Onion River Century Ride is Saturday July 25, 2015
For 12 years the Kellogg-Hubbard Library and Onion River Sports have teamed up to present the Onion River Century Ride. Vermont Sports calls it The Best Century Ride in Vermont.
The day-long event has three different routes, all beginning and ending at Montpelier’s Recreation Field: a 40-mile ride on Route 12 to Lake Elmore and back; a 68-mile Metric Century (110km) through East Montpelier, Hardwick and Elmore, and the full 111-mile Century Ride featuring the scenic rural roads of Hardwick, Barton, Wolcott and Elmore, Vermont. The two longer rides leave with a police escort through historic downtown Montpelier. All three rides have full moral and mechanical support, food stops full of delicious, local food, and a celebratory BBQ at the finish (included in registration). Additional BBQ food and beverage tickets for friends and family can be purchased at the BBQ for $5 each.
RIDING FOR READING
All proceeds from the Onion River Century Ride benefit children’s literacy at the Library. More than any other skill, the ability to read well allows a child to succeed in school, learn about the world around them, and function well in our society. Our programs and materials inspire the love of reading and writing with our youngest patrons as they take their first steps on the path of life-long learning.
Pre-registration: $85 until July 21, ONLINE ONLY at http://www.active.com/montpelier-vt-vt/cycling/races/onion-river-century-ride-2015
