Book Club | Lisa Ko's The Leavers


One morning, Deming Guo's mother, an undocumented Chinese immigrant named Polly, goes to her job at the nail salon and never comes home. With his mother gone, eleven-year-old Deming is left with no one to care for him. He is eventually adopted by two white college professors who move him from the Bronx to a small town upstate. Set in New York and China, the Leavers is the story of how one boy comes into his own when everything he's loved has been taken away--and how a mother learns to live with the mistakes of her past. Lisa Ko is an American writer. Her debut novel, The Leavers, won the 2016 PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction. Please read the book before arriving at the book discussion.

Play | A Midsummer Night's Dream: Classic Shakespeare Comedy Updated


This fall, a classic New York City block party becomes the enchanted setting where fairies work their mischief in Shakespeare’s beloved play. Acclaimed director Jenny Koons takes you to the royal wedding of Theseus and Hippolyta, where a celebratory play is being rehearsed. But the real drama is unfolding in the concrete jungle of fairy King Oberon.

From the filmmaker: "This is my fifth time coming back to my own village, where I was born and brought up. After I graduated from college, when I was staying in my village, I was always suspected and judged by the village people. Xizhu grandpa was called ‘fool’ by other villagers, and Zengxiang aunty was looked down by others. They come into my life, and I stayed with them. Their naïve and strange thought made think about my village in a new way. In this quite ‘normal’ village, who are normal people? In those normal people’s eyes, am I another fool of this village?." 80 min. Director: Zou Xueping

Lesson | Democracy and Voting Rights in the United States: A Contested History


This course will interrogate the history of democratic participation in the United States, with an emphasis on disparities in access to the ballot, racial discrimination, and violence, which continue to exclude voters from the franchise. We will start with an overview of the historical development of democratic inclusion, exclusion, and participation in the United States, and then focus on how social, political and economic institutions intersect with and inform this development. The second half of the course will focus on the ways that democratic participation in the United States is mediated and informed by the carceral state, the regulation of citizenship, political power, wealth, redistricting, and contemporary voter suppression efforts. The class will conclude with a discussion of current efforts to secure and expand voting rights in the United States, focusing on a selection of promising innovations, reforms, and movement building projects.   Saturdays, October 6, 20, 27, November 3, and 10 from 3:00 - 4:30pm.

From the filmmaker: "Since 2011, I have been back to my village, where I was born and raised, to visit the old people of my grandfather's generation, listening to their stories and recording their life.They are above 60 years old, telling me their experiences in the great famine of 1959-1961.

Opening Reception | Toy Temple Human Monk: A 2-Artist Exhibition


Daffy Scanlan is an artist from New Jersey and currently based in New York. Her work explores the transportation of antiques through time and space, paying tribute to the neglect and ultimate disembodiment of un-new objects. She combines cracked and broken textures with antiquated color stories, creating portals into a canon of abuse and trauma. Chiara Ibrah is a visual artist based in Brooklyn. Allegorical imagery and visual puns are recurring motifs in her multimedia work, for which she combines contrasting mediums to further the visual narrative. In much of her recent work, she dissects themes of love and loss in order to draw parallels between those opposing forces.

Author Reading | I Am More Than My Hair: My Outward Appearance Does Not Define Me


From the time we are young, girls are pressured into a set belief of beauty standards. Hair is certainly high on the list and is often labeled as our “crown and glory.” Where does this notion fit for females with alopecia (the partial or complete absence of hair from areas of the body where it normally grows; baldness)? This new photography book by Alyscia Cunningham should bring light to the issue.

Staged Reading | The Oxford Roof Climber’s Rebellion: Living After War


Two heroes return home from the First World War. Lawrence of Arabia is a leader without an army. Robert Graves is a poet who can’t forget. Suffering the aftermath of war and foreseeing the dawning of new ones, the Benevolent Order of the Oxford Roof Climber’s Rebellion lays siege to a sleepy university town. A stand against stands, a dare to end all daring, a doing that protests all doing; the two haunted men -- armed with a talent for practical jokes -- grasp at love and dare to imagine a new world.
