Ken Brown discusses his book, U-boat assault on America : why the US was unprepared for war in the Atlantic. The "Second Happy Time" was the informal name given to the phase of the battle of the Atlantic when German U-boats attacked both merchant and U.S. naval vessels along America's east coast. With tankers burning and petrol rationing in New York City, the U.S. Navy seemed powerless to stop the deprivations of Hitler's marauding U-boats. In this book, Ken Brown seeks to explain how the United States responded to these deadly assaults and looks at the steps that the Navy Department took to train the men, harness the scientists, and make the organizational changes that were required to defeat the German threat.

Within the midtown area one is able to get the full spectrum of the Trump story and his rise to power. The tour will focus on three main things. The first is looking into the man himself and his history. He is well-connected with organized crime, illicit activity and corrupt dealings, and looking into his history in New York gives a window into that. The second is how he, as a symbol for real estate at large, has massively changed New York’s built environment to cater to a billionaire class at the expense of working New Yorkers. The third, potentially most important, is looking at the systemic nature of Trump’s rise in New York. What Trump has done is about a lot more than the single individual, and by looking at the agencies, actors and government institutions that have supported his rise, we can come away with a larger societal understanding of justice in our country.

The Magus tells the story of Nicholas Urfe, a young British graduate who is teaching English on a small Greek island. Urfe becomes embroiled in the psychological illusions of a master trickster, which become increasingly dark and serious. In 1999 The Magus was ranked on both lists of Modern Library 100 Best Novels.  John Fowles (1926-2005) was an English novelist of international stature, critically positioned between modernism and postmodernism. After leaving Oxford University, Fowles taught English at a school on the Greek island of Spetses, a sojourn that inspired The Magus, an instant best-seller that was directly in tune with 1960s "hippy" anarchism and experimental philosophy. Fowles's books have been translated into many languages, and several have been adapted as films.

In It’s Not Always Depression, psychotherapist Hilary Jacobs Hendel provides readers with new tools to identify feelings and inhibitions that prevent us from accessing our true selves. The concepts in the book help readers move toward a state where we are calm, curious, connected, compassionate, confident, courageous, and clear. Through compelling case studies of working the Change Triangle with her own patients, Hendel explains how to apply these principles in everyday life. Hilary Jacobs Hendel, LCSW, will be joined in conversation by Diana Fosha, PhD, the innovator of AEDP and author of The Transforming Power of Affect: A Model for Accelerated Change.

Robert Fieseler sets the largely overlooked tragedy of the Up Stairs Lounge arson that killed 31 men and woman in its rightful historical place. Relying on interviews with survivors and archives, Fieseler chronicles the fire itself and its equally traumatic aftermath—families too ashamed to claim their loved ones, a Catholic Church that refused proper burial rights, and a city that turned a blind eye to the survivors’ care. However, toxic prejudice did not stop an impassioned group of activists from rising up and speaking out. Tinderbox restores their honor and makes the convincing case for the important role they played in the struggle for gay rights. Robert Fieseler will discuss the book with Eric Marcus, creator and host of the award-winning Making Gay Historypodcast.

Author Joyce Lee Malcolm presents this vivid and timely re-examination of one of young America’s most complicated figures: the war hero turned infamous traitor, Benedict Arnold.  Benedict Arnold (1741-1801) was an early American hero of the Revolutionary War (1775-83) who later became one of the most infamous traitors in U.S. history after he switched sides and fought for the British. At the outbreak of the war, Arnold participated in the capture of the British garrison of Fort Ticonderoga in 1775. In 1776, he hindered a British invasion of New York at the Battle of Lake Champlain. The following year, he played a crucial role in bringing about the surrender of British General John Burgoyne’s (1722-92) army at Saratoga. Yet Arnold never received the recognition he thought he deserved. In 1779, he entered into secret negotiations with the British, agreeing to turn over the U.S. post at West Point in return for money and a command in the British army. The plot was discovered, but Arnold escaped to British lines. His name has since become synonymous with the word “traitor.”

Set in the city of Thebes in a dystopian future, the struggle for power, glory and the claim to the city shatters the bonds of brotherhood, leaving two men lifeless. The new king proclaims one brother a hero and the other a usurper, leaving his limp body lying in the street as an example to those who dare act against the state. The citizens of the city avert their eyes due to fear, turning instead to their new leader who vows to restore order to the war torn city. But when the sister of the slain young brothers protests the edict, she breaks faith with everything she has ever known in order to set things right at any cost. Calling on the cultural landscape of African-American traditions, while adhering to the Greek tragic form; this fresh reimagining of the classic story will captivate, stun and inspire audiences from all backgrounds. The Classical Theatre of Harlem's production is inspired by the Paul Roche adaptation which accomplishes a fidelity to the original while giving CTH the flexibility to showcase ancient ideas that have taken center stage in the current climate: order, law, justice and marginalized voices confronting power and patriarchy.
