Just a quick reminder about the Library's "Musical Weekend"

B.D. Lenz Trio – Saturday, April 3rd at 1:00 p.m.

Jazz fusion guitarist B.D. Lenz forged his identity by combining his background in mathematics with his knowledge of music theory to produce the right combination of grooves and melodies. Lenz, who grew up in West Milford, NJ, discovered jazz relatively late in his life. He first encountered it at a clinic given by jazz guitarist Mike Stern at the Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA, where Lenz studied in a one-year music program from 1989-1990. Lenz didn't perform in public, concentrating instead on learning guitar and music theory during his year in California. Since then, he’s gone on to record three compact discs, Tell the World (1997) Lost and Found (1999), and Simple Life (2003).

Local Author Speaks About 20-Something Divorces Saturday, March 13th at 1:00 p.m.

The Old Bridge Public Library will present a program by Sarah Touborg, co-author of Not Your Mother’s Divorce, a practical guide for young women about surviving the stress of a divorce. She will discuss her research and findings as well as the process of having the book published. “We were the first generation to have such wide-spread divorce among our parents,” says Touborg, “it made us more determined to make our own marriages work, and that much more disappointed when they didn’t.” There is no need to register for this free event. For more information, contact Tim at the Old Bridge Public Library, (732) 721-5600 ext. 2313.
