Author Reading | Fly Girls: five remarkable women aviators


In the 1920s and '30s airplane racing was a dangerous and popular new sport. Fans flocked to multi-day events, and cities vied to host them. Many of the pilots themselves were admired and respected as heroes—unless they were women. The press and popular opinion considered female pilots ridiculous and foolish to attempt such a masculine and dangerous sport. In Fly Girls, Keith O’Brien tells the stories of five remarkable women of varied backgrounds who joined forces for the chance to compete against men, so that in 1936 one of them could triumph in the toughest race of all.  Keith O'Brien is the author of Outside Shot: Big Dreams, Hard Times, and One County's Quest for Basketball Greatness, as well as a former reporter for the Boston Globe and contributor to National Public Radio.

The street cats of Istanbul: hundreds of thousands of them roam Turkey’s megacity freely, wandering in and out of people’s lives, an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Filmmaker Ceyda Torun and her nimble cinematographer Charlie Wuppermann train their prowling, cat’s eye-level cameras on the stories of seven such felines — Sari, Bengü, Aslan Parçasi, Psikopat, Deniz, Gamsiz, and Duman— stalking these peripatetic creatures through streets, alleyways, deserted basements, and rooftops. Director: Ceyda Torun 79 min. Pre-screening performance at 7PM, film begins at sundown.

Author Reading | The Age of Eisenhower: America and the World in the 1950s


In a 2017 survey, presidential historians ranked Dwight D. Eisenhower fifth on the list of great presidents, behind the perennial top four: Lincoln, Washington, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Teddy Roosevelt. Historian William Hitchcock shows that this high ranking is justified. Eisenhower’s accomplishments were enormous, and loom ever larger from the vantage point of our own tumultuous times.

Author Reading | Small Animals: Parenthood in the Age of Fear


One morning, Kim Brooks made a split-second decision to leave her four-year old son in the car while she ran into a store. What happened would consume the next several years of her life and spur her to investigate the broader role America's culture of fear plays in parenthood. Brooks asks, Of all the emotions inherent in parenting, is there any more universal or profound than fear? Why have our notions of what it means to be a good parent changed so radically? In what ways do these changes impact the lives of parents, children, and the structure of society at large?
