This week at Telluride’s Wilkinson Public Library

The Valentines keep coming from Telluride's Wilkinson Public LIbrary. Here's what happening during the rest of February in the words of Program Coordinator Scott Doser:

Monday, February 22nd at 6 p.m.

The Telluride Music Lover’s Film Club presents:
“The Dream’s On Me”
The Story of Johnny Mercer

This is an excellent look at the career of the greatest lyricist of all time – Johnny Mercer. His songs are so much a part of American life from "Hooray for Hollywood," "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby," "Jeepers Creepers," "One for My Baby and One for the Road," "Laura," "Autumn Leaves", "Glow Worm," "Moon River," and "Days of Wine and Roses" – to name just a few. He had a way with words no other lyricist has been able to match. The documentary contains numerous clips of Mercer – who had a great voice – along with other greats such as Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, and so many others. You get a good look at Mercer's career. Directed by Clint Eastwood

Wednesday, February 24th at 6 p.m.
“Seize the World”
Stephen Allen Returns to Telluride
The "Seize the World Bicycle Tour" has come full circle. Stephen Allen is now back in Telluride, where the "Seize the World Tour" began. Talk about the tour, answer questions, and to give away a few T-shirts!
(The very first slide show of the tour occurred at Wilkinson Library before the bicycle ride left Telluride,  long ago in October 2008. )
Programmers note: Like many of you, I followed Stephen’s adventures as he traveled around the world to raise awareness about epilepsy.  This remarkable young man has returned to Telluride looking amazingly confident and at peace with himself.  I hope you will join us as Stephen shares his around the world bicycle tour with the community that launched the adventure.
