This is a great opportunity to mingle with other Tribeca businesses while paying a visit to a unique Tribeca emporium. Fountain Pen Hospital has been around since 1946 and carries the world’s finest selection of new and vintage pens, inks and accessories. Come meet Terry and Steve Wiederlight, the brothers whose family began the business and take a look at the vintage and modern writing instruments they have to offer. How many times have you walked past this place and wondered what mysteries were just behind their doors? This is your chance to come and explore one of Tribeca’s treasures. If you have never attended a Tribeca Meet and Greet, now’s the time. They have been meeting in a different Tribeca restaurant or business about once a month. They've been able to exchange some ideas, do some networking and have a drink with the neighbors. Some people show up for the full evening, some just drop by to say hello. Frankly Wines at 66 West Broadway will kindly provide some beverages, MaxDelivery will bring some nibblybits and there will be a giveaway of some items donated by various Tribeca companies. This means that several local businesses have joined in presenting this event. They expect to have a friendly group and a terrific time with a chance to learn some useful things about our neighborhood. Please feel free to bring business cards, menus, flyers and other information about you and your business.  I am thrilled to say that these get-togethers are over ten years old and represent a terrific neighborhood spirit on the part of everyone who has hosted or attended.

What is the connection between the time of the city and religious time? In modern Delhi, a city that moves at a frenetic pace, the ruins of a 14th century palace—now widely recognized as a dargah or Muslim saint shrine— are a space where people shirk work and cease looking at their watches; and where the spirit-saints, often seen in visitors’ dreams and waking visions wearing medieval robes, embody another time. Speaker Anand Vivek Taneja is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Religious Studies at Vanderbilt University.

This four-week writing workshop will look to Paris in the first quarter of the 20th century as a center of artistic experimentation. The friendships of poets and painters, such as Guillaume Apollinaire and Pablo Picasso and the surrealists Andre Breton and Joan Miro, were crucial to the radical changes that would shape art and writing and the modern aesthetic. In this workshop we will explore their ideas, experiment with the poets’ practices and draw on the library’s Art and Picture Collection to stimulate new writing. With: Hermine Meinhard
