One Book Steamboat: An Evening with Alexandra Fulller

Talks/Lectures

Bud Werner Memorial Library presents a special author event for our 2017 One Book Steamboat community read of "The Legend of Colton H. Bryant." Author Alexandra Fuller joins Steamboat Springs for a conversation about her nonfiction book, "The Legend of Colton H. Bryant." It is the unforgettable true story of a soulful boy with a mustang-taming heart who comes of age in the oil fields and open plains of Wyoming. After surviving a sometimes cruel adolescence with his own brand of optimistic goofiness, Bryant goes to work on an oil rig — and there the biggest heart in the world can’t save him from the new, unkind greed that has possessed his beloved Wyoming during the latest boom. Bryant's story could not be told without telling of the land that grew him, where the great high plains meet the Rocky Mountains to create a vista of lonely beauty. It is here that the existence of one boy is a true story as deeply moving as the life that inspired it. Books will be available for sale and author signing courtesy of Off the Beaten Path Bookstore.

Dance on Film: Ballerina

Film

Bud Werner Memorial Library, Perry-Mansfield and Steamboat Dance Theatre present a film by Bertrand Normand. In the grand tradition of the Ballets Russes comes a portrait of five Russian ballerinas from the Mariinsky Theatre (also known as the Kirov). Behind any great ballerina lies the discipline and rigor that comes from decades of training and practice. Superstars like Nijinsky, Baryshnikov and Pavlova established the reputation of Russian dancers as the best in the world. The five dancers profiled in this revealing film are tough, insightful and exceptionally talented; onstage they reveal no hint of the sweat, pain and hard work of the rehearsal studio. From Swan Lake to Romeo and Juliet, from the backstage studio to performing on stages around the world, Ballerina captures the sublime beauty of ballet, in all its resplendent glory. Featuring Diana Vishneva, Svetlana Zakharova, Ulyana Lopatkina, Alina Somova and Evgenia Obraztsova.

Wild Films at the Library: Giraffes, Africa's Gentle Giants

Film

Bud Werner Memorial Library presents the winner of Best Broadcast Feature at the 2017 International Wildlife Film Festival..plus a bonus short film, "The Rhino Guardians." Dr. Julian Fennessy has spent the last 20 years of his life studying giraffes. Now he’s starting to reveal their secrets – they are disappearing. The giraffe population in Africa is down by 40 percent in just two decades. In collaboration with a determined Ugandan Wildlife Authority team, Fennessy wants to round up 20 of the world’s rarest giraffe to get them to safety through the wild heart of Uganda, which means embarking on a special voyage across the mighty Nile River. The stakes are high in this urgent and daring mission against poachers affiliated with organized crime, but if successful, the reward will be a brighter future for an animal we have somehow overlooked.

Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School & Camp: A History of Art in Nature

Talks/Lectures, Signing/Readings

Local author Dagny McKinley talks about her new book, Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School & Camp: A History of Art in Nature, including intriguing photos, stories and interviews that didn't make the final cut. The inspiration for this book began when McKinley saw an image of Portia Mansfield and Charlotte Perry dancing. The women appeared to be filled with such joy she felt pulled to find out more about them. Four years and hundreds of pages of research later, this is their story. In 1914, Perry and Mansfield envisioned a secluded institution nestled in the mountains, where art and nature could intersect. By the 1920s, their remote Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts School & Camp in Steamboat Springs was serving as a hub for top dancers such as José Limon and Harriette Ann Gray to hone their craft. In addition to training thousands of pointed toes and arched feet, the school showcased equestrian jumping and performed plays by masters, including Shakespeare, García Lorca and Tennessee Williams. The theater program eventually attracted budding actors like Julie Harris, Dustin Hoffman and Jessica Biel. Author Dagny McKinley presents the story of America’s longest continuously running performing arts camp.

Wild Films at the Library: Light On Earth

Film

Bud Werner Memorial Library presents a featured film from the 2017 International Wildlife Film Festival. The spectacular and magical light produced by glowworms, fireflies and luminous plankton is known as bioluminescence – light made by living creatures. But those quite familiar glows and flashes are just a tiny, easily observed fragment of a previously unexplored, mysterious realm. The sea at night sparkles, as millions of luminous plankton reveal the shapes of dolphins in a truly magical light show. But why do animals produce light of their own? For centuries, we could only marvel at the beauty and the mystery. But now, for the first time we can begin to reveal the amazing truth about living lights. Sir David Attenborough is our guide, as we venture into a world he describes as “utterly unlike our own.” He and a team of the world’s leading scientists take us on a quest into the fascinating realm of living light.
