Book Discussion | Nazis of Copley Square: The Forgotten Story of the Christian Front (online)


In 1939, the Christian Front was formed in response to a call by Father Charles Edward Coughlin to oppose the Popular Front, a communist organization. The members of the Christian Front were American Catholics who supported a pro-Nazi agenda. In 1940, the FBI alleged that members of the group were trying to install what they called a "temporary dictatorship" to end the influence of Jews and Communists, who they saw as the same, in the United States. Charles Gallagher's new book chronicles the history of the front and how it was ultimately taken down. He talks with David Kertzer, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and a professor at Brown University.

Discussion | Design Standards for the Modern Carnegie Library (online)


In 2021, the New York Public Library broke ground to completely renovate five original Carnegie libraries in high-needs communities with a new set of design standards: Port Richmond in Staten Island, 125th Street and Fort Washington in Manhattan, and Hunts Point and Melrose in the South Bronx. The projects, managed by Mitchell Giurgola and CannonDesign, will preserve the historic character of the historic branches while modernizing the interior and maximizing and expanding public space to serve today’s library patrons. This is a panel discussion about how the NYPL is using design, community engagement, and library programming to preserve the historic character of the branches while meeting the needs of today’s New Yorkers. Hear from designers, archivists, and library leaders as they discuss the role of the design standards to allow for Carnegie libraries to better serve their neighborhoods. Learn about the roles that design, accessibility, sustainability, and technology play in the transformation of these iconic structures into modern centers for public learning and engagement. Margaret Sullivan (Margaret Sullivan Studio) will moderate a conversation between Risa Honig, Gesille Dixon (New York Public Library), Carol Loewenson (Mitchell Giurgola), and Phil Dordai (CannonDesign) about the history of the Carnegie Libraries and how Carnegie design standards are shaping library buildings, programs, and services that touch communities across the five boroughs.

Talk | "What Makes it Italian?": The Music and Architecture of Italy (online)


"What Makes It Italian?" is a music listening and discussion group that meets online and is open to everyone. The group is led by Gina Crusco. She takes a look at stylistic parallels between the most ephemeral of the arts - music, which dissipates moment by moment - and the near-permanent - architecture, constructed to last many lifetimes. Italy is the birthplace of Renaissance architecture and the homeland of Palladianism, a style which influenced design all over the world. The history of Western architecture has been shaped by such edifices as the Duomo of Milan, the Mole Antonelliana in Turin, and the Villa Capra in Vicenza. Nowadays, Italy is in the forefront of modernist architecture, with two Pritzker Architecture Prizes having gone to Italians. Who were the composers who produced music in the regions and during the eras when these great buildings were erected? Does their music reflect then-current architecture trends? The likes of Alessandro Scarlatti, Giuseppe Verdi, and today's young Giovanni Allevi tell the story.

Book Discussion | Moon and the Mars: Growing Up in a Tenement (online)


A live-streamed conversation with playwright and novelist Kia Corthron, author of the story of a young girl, Theo, growing up with her family in Five Points, a diverse Lower Manhattan neighborhood of tenement residents. The conversation will be livestreamed from the 1860s tenement apartment at 97 Orchard Street. Set between the years of 1853 –1863, follow Theo’s coming of age spent in the respective homes of her Black and Irish grandmothers and in an increasingly divided country as it edges closer to the Civil War. As the world around her changes, so does Theo’s understanding of her place within it. A feat of historical research, Corthron immerses the reader in a narrative that coheres newspaper headlines of the era and Theo’s perspective and experience of life. Family and identity are at the heart of this multigenerational story that invites readers to see the past for all its complexity.

Lecture | A Lecture On Nellie Bly (Online)


A celebration of the life and legacy of Nellie Bly – journalist, adventurer and humanitarian – on the centennial of her death (January 27, 1922) with a focus on her record-breaking race around the world declared ‘the most remarkable of all feats of circumnavigation ever performed by a human being,’ by The New York World, 1890.    Rosemary J Brown is a London-based journalist and author of Following Nellie Bly: Her Record-Breaking Race Around the World (Pen and Sword Books, 2021) where she re-traced Bly’s epic 72-day journey to pay tribute to the pioneering woman now commemorated in the recently inaugurated The Girl Puzzle monument on Roosevelt Island.

Her work recognizes and honors the plight of women, those who are marginalized, the LGBTQ+ community, and others who are still seeking equal rights and representation.

The year is 1962, and an Icelandic man is found dead on a train bound for England, a map marred with a red-penned swastika in hand.

Poetry Reading | Refusenik: Poetry of Trauma (online)


Poet Lynn Melnick explores misogyny and anti-Semitism from Russia to Los Angeles to Brooklyn. Melnick dives fearlessly into personal and generational trauma, interrogating misogyny and anti-Semitism across time and a shifting global landscape—from a football field in Los Angeles to a Russian shtetl to a beloved daughter’s Brooklyn bedroom. Both unraveling and allowing for the tangles of anger, nostalgia, and love, Melnick furrows deeper into the terrain of her much-celebrated earlier titles, arriving at a profound understanding of what it means to be a contemporary American.

Author Reading | True Story: What Reality TV Says About Us (online)


Sociologist and TV lover Danielle J. Lindemann takes a long, hard look in the “funhouse mirror” of this genre. From the first episodes of The Real World to countless rose ceremonies to the White House, reality TV has not just remade our entertainment and cultural landscape (which it undeniably has). Reality TV, Lindemann argues, uniquely reflects our everyday experiences and social topography back to us. Applying scholarly research—including studies of inequality, culture, and deviance—to specific shows, Lindemann layers sharp insights with social theory, humor, pop cultural references, and anecdotes from her own life to show us who we really are.
