TIME TRAVEL!
Turn Dreams Into Reality...
Have you ever wanted to go back to the French Revolution…or back to last week before you embarrassed yourself in front of that girl you like? Have you ever wanted to go forward…to next week, to see if you got the part you wanted in the school play, or 25 years into the future to see how your life turned out? Write about it! This contest is for teens in grades 6-12 only. Stories can be three to six pages long (double-spaced, typed), and can include any type of story as long as it incorporates time travel! Submit them at the reference desk of your library, or send them to burbank.teens@gmail.com, by October 31 at 5:00 p.m.! Prizes will be awarded for the top stories. Stay tuned...


THURSDAY

OPERA TALK

Guest speaker Anne Sullivan discusses a riveting pairing of one-act masterpieces, written more than two centuries apart: 
In Henry Purcell's Dido and Aeneas, a queen falls prey to the machinations of a formidable enemy, losing her heart to a man who abandons her. In Bela Bartok's suspenseful orchestral showpiece Bluebeard's Castle, an impulsive young bride turns her back on her family, only to uncover increasingly dark truths about her new husband.


SATURDAY
