Master Class | Master Class with Multiple Grammy Winning Jazz Pianist


Billy Childs has emerged as one of the foremost American composers of his era, perhaps the most distinctly American composer since Aaron Copland—and like Copland, he has successfully married the musical products of his heritage with the Western neoclassical traditions of the 20th century in a powerful symbiosis of style, range, and dynamism. Childs has garnered 13 Grammy nominations and four awards: two for Best Instrumental Composition and two for Best Arrangement Accompanying a Vocalist. In 2006, Childs was awarded a Chamber Music America Composer’s Grant, and in 2009 he was the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship. He was also awarded the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award in 2013, and most recently, the music award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2015.

Author Reading | Carleton Watkins: Making the West American - What Can Be Done Single-handedley!


Critic and podcast host Tyler Green explores the life of the great American photographer whose work helped to invent the American West. Widely considered to be the most important American photographer of the nineteenth century, Carleton Watkins is best known for his pictures of Yosemite Valley and the nearby Mariposa Grove of giant sequoias. When his photographs were exhibited in New York in 1862, they played a key role in tying the West to the Union, and would eventually inspire Congress to pass legislation to preserve Yosemite as a park—the first act of landscape preservation in the world. The work helped drive the great Westward expansion of American capital, as Watkins’s friends and patrons—many of them titans of the Gilded Age—were inspired by the beauty and promise of his images. Drawing on recent scholarship and fresh archival discoveries, Tyler Green reveals how the artist didn’t just reflect his time, but acted as an agent of influence. He will discuss Carleton Watkins: Making the West American with MoMA curator of photography, Sarah Meister.

Staged Reading | Egyptian Song: Twins Turned Against Each Other


Nalal and Zahia are boy/girl twins growing up in rural Egypt in the 1920s with a domineering (but loving) widowed mother. Zahia has a gorgeous singing voice and from an early age sings Nahal to sleep at night. As she gains attention as a singer, her mother decides that her marriage prospects are more important and forbids her from performing. While she used to confide in her brother Nahal, he has become more distant as he aligns himself with an ultra-conservative group. She befriends Hamdy, a worker in her mother’s store. They aren’t allowed to speak because Hamdy is a man outside of her family, but they pass notes. When they take a risky outing together alone, Nahal learns what’s happened. His confrontation with his sister lays bare the conflict between their filial bond and his perception of his family’s honor. Written by James Christy.

Author Reading | Team Human: Urgent Thoughts on Civilization


Team Human is a fiery distillation of preeminent digital theorist Douglas Rushkoff's most urgent thoughts on civilization and human nature. In one hundred lean and incisive statements, he argues that we are essentially social creatures, and that we achieve our greatest aspirations when we work together. Yet today society is threatened by a vast antihuman infrastructure that undermines our ability to connect. Money, once a means of exchange, is now a means of exploitation; education, conceived as way to elevate the working class, has become another assembly line; and the internet has only further divided us. Team Human delivers a call to arms. If we are to resist and survive these destructive forces, we must recognize that being human is a team sport. In Rushkoff's own words: "Being social may be the whole point." Harnessing wide-ranging research on human evolution, biology, and psychology, Rushkoff shows that when we work together we realize greater happiness, productivity, and peace. Douglas Rushkoff is the best-selling author of Program or Be Programmed and fourteen other books. He serves as a professor of media theory at CUNY/Queens, where he hosts NPR’s Team Human podcast. He lives in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York.

Author Reading | The War Before the War: Fugitive Slaves and the Struggle for America's Soul from the Revolution to the Civil War


The devastating story of how fugitive slaves drove the nation to Civil War. For decades after its founding, America was really two nations--one slave, one free. There were many reasons why this composite nation ultimately broke apart, but the fact that enslaved black people repeatedly risked their lives to flee their masters in the South in search of freedom in the North proved that the "united" states was actually a lie. Fugitive slaves exposed the contradiction between the myth that slavery was a benign institution and the reality that a nation based on the principle of human equality was in fact a prison-house in which millions of Americans had no rights at all. By awakening northerners to the true nature of slavery, and by enraging southerners who demanded the return of their human "property," fugitive slaves forced the nation to confront the truth about itself. By 1850, with America on the verge of collapse, Congress reached what it hoped was a solution-- the notorious Compromise of 1850, which required that fugitive slaves be returned to their masters. Like so many political compromises before and since, it was a deal by which white Americans tried to advance their interests at the expense of black Americans. Yet the Fugitive Slave Act, intended to preserve the Union, in fact set the nation on the path to civil war. It divided not only the American nation, but also the hearts and minds of Americans who struggled with the timeless problem of when to submit to an unjust law and when to resist. Author Andrew Delbanco is the Alexander Hamilton Professor of American Studies at Columbia University. Author of many notable books, including College, Melville, The Death of Satan, Required Reading, The Real American Dream, and The Puritan Ordeal, he was recently appointed president of the Teagle Foundation, which supports liberal education for college students of all backgrounds.

Reading | One Small Blow Against Encroaching Totalitarianism


Since the 2016 election, reading the news each day can send even the most placid among us into a paralyzing apoplexia. We are enraged, we are bewildered, and then we get nothing done all day. We go to bed with teeth clenched, wake up, and it begins again. But McSweeney's has a solution. All year, they have been featuring essays by powerful voices—from poets and novelists to actors and activists—giving voice to their state of mind—and possibly yours, too. These writers also offer one simple thing you can do that day to take action, to address those concerns, to feel a little less powerless. Maybe it’ll be an organization or charity they find worthy of your donation, a volunteer opportunity worth your time, or an issue that deserves greater awareness. Whatever it is, we hope it will help remind all of us of the big and small things we can do to work toward justice and change. This event will feature contributors to the series reading extracts from their essays.

Author Reading | The Wartime Sisters: A Shattering Reunion


The next powerful novel from the author of Goodreads Choice Awards semifinalist The Two-Family House is about two sisters working in a WWII armory, each with a deep secret. Two estranged sisters, raised in Brooklyn and each burdened with her own shocking secret, are reunited at the Springfield Armory in the early days of WWII. While one sister lives in relative ease on the bucolic Armory campus as an officer’s wife, the other arrives as a war widow and takes a position in the Armory factories as a “soldier of production.” Resentment festers between the two, and secrets are shattered when a mysterious figure from the past reemerges in their lives. Lynda Cohen Loigman grew up in Longmeadow, Massachusetts. She received a B.A. in English and American Literature from Harvard College and a law degree from Columbia Law School. Lynda practiced trusts and estates law in New York City for eight years before moving out of the city to raise her two children with her husband. She wrote The Two-Family House while she was a student of the Writing Institute at Sarah Lawrence College. The Wartime Sisters is her second novel.
