Book Club | How to Kill a City: Gentrification, Inequality, and the Fight for the Neighborhood (virtual)


This nonfiction book group reads and discusses the most fascinating topics in nonfiction, both classic and contemporary, with seasonal themes covering a variety of genres. For November, the group discusses P. E. Moskowitz's How to Kill a City. Moskowitz takes readers from the kitchen tables of hurting families who can no longer afford their homes to the corporate boardrooms and political backrooms where destructive housing policies are devised. Along the way, they uncover the massive, systemic forces behind gentrification in New Orleans, Detroit, San Francisco, and New York. The deceptively simple question of who can and cannot afford to pay the rent goes to the heart of America's crises of race and inequality. In the fight for economic opportunity and racial justice, nothing could be more important than housing. A vigorous, hard-hitting expose, How to Kill a City reveals who holds power in our cities--and how we can get it back.

The first African-American woman to have a piece performance by a major American orchestra, Florence Price combined traditional African-American idioms, African dance rhythms, and with the harmonies and forms of mid-century American classical music in her String Quartet No. 2, written in 1935. Written when he was 27 years old, Brahms’ first string sextet sees the developing composer pushing boundaries and exposing the full sonic potential of the two violins, two violas, and two cellos for which the work was written.

Concert | Broadway Close Up: Tribute to The Great Dorothy Fields, Lyricist of Over 400 Songs for Broadway and Films (virtual)


Dorothy Fields (1904-1974) was the only woman to make it into the top echelon of great composers in the 1920s - a group that included the Gershwins, Cole Porter and Rodgers & Hart. She collaborated with Jerome Kern, Cy Coleman and others on hit songs including "The Way You Look Tonight," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," "On the Sunny Side of the Street" and "Big Spender," as well as the musicals Sweet Charity and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. In a career spanning more than 40 years, Fields wrote some of the most enduring lyrics of the Golden Age of the American popular song. This concert-lecture will feature the acclaimed jazz vocalist Gabrielle Stravelli, who the New York Times compares to "Ella Fitzgerald in her prime." Music directed by Greg Jarrett.

Staged Reading | The Courage to Right a Woman’s Wrongs: A Comedy of Wild Intrigue (virtual)


One of the Spanish Golden Age’s most accomplished female playwrights, Ana Caro presents a witty critique of society through the story of Leonor, a woman who sets out to find her one-time lover (Don Juan, naturally) and bring him to justice. Dressed as the dashing Leonardo, Leonor travels from Seville to Brussels, where she finds Juan and initiates her shrewd plan for revenge. What follows is a hilarious feat of masterful maneuvering, replete with cross-dressing and unexpected twists, in which she repeatedly outwits the men around her. And while the thrill of Leonor’s efforts to seek redress culminates with the expected restoration of her honor and marriage to Juan, the questions raised by her demands for justice make the play anything but conventional.  Directed by Melia Bensussen.
