Festival | Day of the Dead Celebration


Day of the Dead is a time to honor the dearly departed. The time-honored tradition has roots in Mexico, Central America, and South America, but it’s recently become a fixture in the United States, and of course, Queens leads the pack with a large selection of festivals. An ofrenda (or altar) will adorn the site, providing people a spot to place photos, flowers, and other mementos to loved ones. But there will also be plenty of music, dance, and costumes. 3 pm: Quiet contemplation and remembrance of loved ones at the ofrenda 4 pm: Cultural activities and shows 7:30 pm: Manhatitlan performance 8 pm: Mariachi performance

Author Reading | Immune: A Journey into the Mysterious System That Keeps You Alive (online)


You wake up and feel a tickle in your throat. Your head hurts. You're mildly annoyed as you get the kids ready for school and dress for work yourself. Meanwhile, an epic war is being fought, just below your skin. Millions are fighting and dying for you to be able to complain as you head out the door. But most of us never really stop to ask: What even is our immune system? Second only to the human brain in its complexity, it is one of the oldest and most critical facets of life on Earth. Without it, you would die within days. Author Philipp Dettmer, the brains behind the most popular science channel on YouTube, takes readers on a journey through the fortress of the human body and its defenses. There is a constant battle of staggering scale raging within us, full of stories of invasion, strategy, defeat, and noble self-sacrifice. In fact, in the time you've been reading this, your immune system has probably identified and eradicated a cancer cell that started to grow in your body.

Dance Performance | Classical Indian Dance (online; streaming through Nov. 15)


This digital collaboration from a Belgium-based Sooraj Subramaniam and Malaysia-based dance artist January Low explores their parallel experiences of the Odissi Indian classical dance form. The two artists have known each other since childhood. They lost touch for over a decade, journeying into adulthood separately, reconnecting only a few years ago. Created during global lockdown in an effort to overcome distance and despondency, this work reveals the bridging power of social media and technology and the rekindling of a friendship made possible through dance.

Author Reading | Colorization: One Hundred Years of Black Films in a White World (online)


Journalist and acclaimed author of The Butler and Showdown Wil Haygood presents his kaleidoscopic, deeply-researched history of Black cinema. Using the struggles and triumphs of the artists, and the films themselves—from Gone with the Wind to Blaxploitation films to Black Panth—as a prism to explore Black culture, civil rights, and racism in America, Haygood makes clear the effects of changing social realities and events on the business of making movies and on what was represented on the screen: from Jim Crow and segregation to white flight and interracial relationships, from the assassination of Malcolm X, to the O. J. Simpson trial, to the Black Lives Matter movement.
