Reading | Primo Levi at 100: If This Is a Man


To commemorate the centennial of the author's birth, writers, performers, and scholars gather for a multilingual, full-length reading of his seminal memoir. "Many people--many nations--can find themselves believing, more or less consciously, that "every stranger is an enemy.""--Primo Levi, preface to If This Is a Man In 1947, just three years after he was liberated from Auschwitz, Primo Levi published If This Is a Man, an unsparing account of his 11 months of internment in the death camp. The book had at first faced difficulty finding a publisher, and upon its initial publication, sales were modest. Yet ten years later, when it was re-published, his first-hand account of survival was embraced by an international audience. From the afternoon into the evening, one hundred years after Levi was born in Turin, Italy, readers will gather for a full-length recitation of If This Is a Man (also known as Survival in Auschwitz), sharing chapters aloud in some of the many languages into which his indelible work has been translated around the world.

Classical Music | Bach at Noon


The organ works of J.S. Bach (1685-1750) offered in 30-minute meditations. Johann Sebastian Bach was a German composer and musician of the Baroque period. He is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor. Since the 19th-century Bach has been generally regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. "The term ‘baroque’ has been widely used since the 19th century to describe the period in Western European art music from about 1600 to 1750... Many famous composers from the first part of the baroque period came from Italy and have a link with Venice, including Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Monteverdi was born in Cremona, but moved to Venice where he was ‘maestro di capella’ at the San Marco basilica. Vivaldi was born in Venice and was one of the greatest baroque composers. It is thanks to these strong musical traditions of Venice that we have today’s music. Without Venetian church music and Monteverdi’s advances with polyphony, the great traditions of choral music in England, France, and Germany would never have developed. Without the operas written by Monteverdi, Cavalli and Vivaldi, not only would the later styles of opera never have been invented. There would be no basis for the American Musical or the German and Viennese Operetta, the Spanish Zarzuela, and even rock, pop, and contemporary music as we know it." The Venice Insider Bach at Noon concerts take place every Tuesdays through Fridays, from September 11, 2018 to May 22, 2019.

Discussion | We, the Climate Generation: Generations Together for Climate Justice


The UN was founded on the message of ‘We, the Peoples’ after world war had ravaged a whole generation. Now, the world stands on the cusp of an existential crisis due to ecological collapse. The breakdown of the climate, caused principally by human activities, is a key driver of this crisis. A rallying cry needs to go out that we are the peoples’ – we are the climate generation: the first to fully comprehend what is happening to our earth, and the last with time to rescue it. In advance of the UN Climate Change Summit in September, this event will bring together activists for climate justice of all ages who consider themselves the climate generation.

Tour | Bloomingdale Neighborhood Walking Tour


Explore the history of this part of Upper West Side with local historian Jim Mackin. Here is what http://www.cityneighborhoods.nyc/bloomingdale-district/ says about it: While it is still technically part of the Upper West Side, Manhattan's Bloomingdale District takes its name from its original Dutch settlers. Located between West 96th and West 110th Streets, the Hudson River and Broadway, The Bloomingdale District is an almost-forgotten enclave (and name) in the Upper West Side. Perhaps named for the old Dutch village of Bloemendaal ("valley of flowers"), this neighborhood was once home to the Bloomingdale Insane Asylum. It is likely that the name fell out of disuse to avoid association with the facility. But now, the neighborhood is distinguished enough from the Upper West Side to the south, and Manhattan Valley to the east to warrant its own name - one that hearkens back to its roots, and befitting a scenic, almost "bucolic" city neighborhood.

Discussion | The Past And Future Of Trans Movement


Contemporary trans thinkers and cultural producers explore the radical traditions that inform their pioneering work. In the fifty years since the Stonewall Rebellion, the LGBT community has seen major wins and losses. Media narratives about the legacy of Stonewall are often overwhelmingly positive, creating easily consumable portrayals of historical figures and events. But those struggles are still with us.  Listen to a panel of important contemporary trans political and culture makers reflect on the radical legacy of Stonewall, and how trans life resists and flourishes today.

Author Reading | Edna's Gift: A Sister's Love


When they were young, Susan and Edna, children of Holocaust refugee parents, were inseparable; Edna was Susan’s first love and constant companion. But as they grew up and Edna’s physical, and mental challenges altered the ways she could develop, a gulf formed between them. Susan’s life became even more complicated when, just short of her sixteenth birthday, she learned that she’d been born without a uterus and would never menstruate or give birth to children. As she coped with this trauma, Edna continued loving her unconditionally, as she always had.
