A Mouse Divided

A Mouse Divided

In 1928, two very different best friends invented Mickey Mouse. The success tore them apart.

Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks’s friendship is a story of betrayal, love, war, money, power, tragedy, intrigue, humor, despair, and hope.

It’ll make you love Walt Disney more than you ever thought possible—when you don’t want to drop an anvil on his head, that is. And it’ll make you sympathize for Walt’s friend-turned-rival Ub Iwerks, always in Walt’s shadow.

Location: Sayreville Public Library – 1050 Washington Road, Parlin, NJ 08859.

Audience: Teens, Adults, Seniors

What is Jazz and Why Does It Matter?

6:30 PM18:30

What is Jazz and Why Does It Matter?

Branford Marsalis once said, “What is jazz? It, It’s almost like asking, What is French? Jazz is a musical language. It’s a musical dialect that actually embodies the spirit of America.” Sometimes called “America’s Classical Music,” the tradition and history of the genre embodies the essence of freedom and democracy. From its origins within the slaves songs, to the advent of the blues, Dixieland, Swing, Bebop, and other styles, jazz exhibits how each individual (through his/her independence) must function within the framework of a group to better serve the entire community. In this session, through music and discussion, participants will explore jazz and why it matters.

Location: Sayreville Free Public Library, 1050 Washington Rd., Parlin, NJ 08859-1061.
