After the United States entered the WWII, Capt. John L. McCrea served as a naval aide to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He supplied material for the president’s fireside chats, helped arrange the Casablanca Conference, and worked with such prominent leaders as Winston Churchill, Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy, and General Douglas MacArthur. Despite his important work for the president, McCrea yearned for active service. Persuading FDR to release him from Washington, he was given command of the USS Iowa, the country’s newest and largest battleship. Captain McCrea’s War ends in April 1945, when McCrea was summoned back to Washington after President Roosevelt’s death. Julia C. Tobey worked as an editor, writer, and researcher before earning a law degree. Vice Admiral John L.McCrea was her stepfather. After retiring from her law practice, she edited McCrea’s reminiscences to create this memoir. The book will be available for purchase following the event, courtesy of Wellesley Books.

Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon, a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theatre that has fallen on hard times. Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition. Five lead contestants emerge: A mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons, a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo. All the contestants arrive under Buster’s marquee, believing that the competition will be their shot to change the course of their life.This movie is sponsored by the Needham Free Public Library.
