Screening | Bagels Over Berlin: Voices of American Jewish Airmen (online)


For young Jewish men in the American military, World War II had particularly high stakes. They served both as Americans and as Jews in this greatest of human conflicts, determined to defeat Nazi Germany at all costs. This is a Veterans Day screening of Bagels Over Berlin, a documentary from filmmaker Alan Feinberg which explores the experiences of these young men and highlights their heroism. The film focuses on the U.S. Army Air Corps, which suffered the highest mortality rate among branches of the U.S. armed forces but which nonetheless attracted Jewish volunteers in disproportionately large numbers. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Feinberg and Gerald Gersten, who flew 35 bombing missions over Germany between 1943 and 1945.

Opening Reception | this place, this time: In the Presence of Art


Bradley Hart continues his theme of examining the experience of being in the presence of art. The new series turns the focus towards representing paintings at the moment they are hitting the auction block. It is at this precise moment that the paintings are presented to a public audience for the last time. Hart expands on his signature subject matter of exploring the unique meaningful connections forged when experiencing artwork in person. His latest body of work depicts a selection of masterpieces that are now held in private collections worldwide.

Book Discussion | Hail Mary: The Rise and Fall of the National Women’s Football League (online)


Authors Britni de la Cretaz and Lyndsey D’Arcangelo talk about the history of the National Women’s Football League. American football is in many ways the sport of the nation, winning the loyal viewership and adulation of a wide array of people. Yet football remains a sport predominantly considered masculine by nature—aggressive, violent, and tough. De la Cretaz and D’Arcangelo share the little-known, fascinating story of the NWFL, telling the stories of the girl gridders whose spirit, rivalries, and tenacity carried the league, which prevailed through sexism, injuries, stereotypes, harassment, skeptics, and their own lack of training.

Book Discussion | The Forgotten: Photographs Personal and Universal


Photographer Rosalind Fox Solomon in conversation with writer Lynne Tillman, where they will discuss discuss the former's remarkable photographic career, their own respective creative practices, and the startling investigation into the relentless pursuit of power as seen in Fox Solomon's latest book. Rosalind Fox Solomon (b. 1930), an American artist based in New York City, is celebrated for her portraits and for her connection to human suffering, ritual, survival, and struggle. Fox Solomon's work flows back and forth between the personal and the universal. Her talent lies in her capacity to interpret and photograph both the social elements of the places she travels to, and the obsessions and anxieties that travel with her.

Author Reading | American Rebels: How the Hancock, Adams, and Quincy Families Fanned the Flames of Revolution (online)


Author Nina Sankovitch will present the intimate connections between leading families of the American Revolution--the Hancock, Quincy, and Adams families--and explore the role played by such figures as John Hancock, John Adams and Abigail Smith (Adams), Josiah Quincy Junior and Dorothy Quincy (Hancock) in sparking the flames of dissent and rebellion that would lead to the Declaration of Independence in 1776. By focusing in on Braintree, Massachusetts and these three prominent families of the village, Sankovitch will demonstrate how the desire for independence cut across class lines, binding people together as they pursued commonly held goals of opportunity, liberty, and stability.

Author Reading | 12 Bytes: How We Got Here, Where We Go Next: From New York Times Bestselling Author Jeanette Winterson


An original and entertaining new collection drawing on the author's years of thinking and reading about artificial intelligence in its bewildering manifestations. She looks to history, religion, myth, literature, the politics of race and gender, and computer science to help us understand the radical changes to the way we live and love that are happening now. When we create non-biological life forms, will we do so in our own image? Or will we accept the once-in-a-species opportunity to remake ourselves in their image? What do love, caring, sex, and attachment look like when humans form connections with non-human helpers, teachers, sex workers, and companions? And what will happen to our deep-rooted assumptions about gender? Will the physical body that is our home soon be enhanced by biological and neural implants, keeping us fitter, younger, and connected? Is it time to join Elon Musk and leave Planet Earth? With wit, compassion, and curiosity, Winterson tackles AI’s most interesting talking points, from the algorithms that data-dossier your whole life, to the weirdness of backing up your brain.

Author Reading | Of Fear and Strangers: A History of Xenophobia


By 2016, it was impossible to ignore an international resurgence of xenophobia. What had happened? Looking for clues, psychiatrist and historian George Makari started out in search of the idea's origins. To his astonishment, he discovered an unfolding series of never-told stories. While a fear and hatred of strangers may be ancient, he found that the notion of a dangerous bias called "xenophobia" arose not so long ago.
