Author Reading | Susan, Linda, Nina & Cokie: The Extraordinary Story of the Founding Mothers of NPR (online)


In the years after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, women in the workplace still found themselves relegated to secretarial positions or locked out of jobs entirely. This was especially true in the news business, a backwater of male chauvinism where a woman might be lucky to get a foothold on the “women’s pages.” But when National Public Radio came along in the 1970s, and the door to serious journalism opened a crack, four remarkable women came along and blew it off the hinges. Journalist Lisa Napoli gives a captivating account of these four women, their deep and enduring friendships, and the trails they blazed while becoming icons. Napoli utilized her deep connections in news and public radio for the extensive interviews featured throughout the pages.

Movie in a Park | Rock Bottom Riser (2020): Documentary, Hawaii's World at Sea


7:00 PM: Doors Open 8:00 PM: Film Begins Rock Bottom Riser Fern Silva | 2020 | US | 70 mins. From the earliest voyagers who navigated by starlight, to present-day astronomers scanning the cosmos for habitable planets, explorers have long made Hawaii the hub for their searching. Today--as lava continues to flow on the island--another crisis mounts as scientists plan to build the world's largest telescope on Mauna Kea, Hawaii's most sacred and revered mountain. In his dynamic feature debut, Fern Silva examines myriad encounters with an island world at sea. Drawing from subjects as seemingly disparate as the arrival of Christian missionaries and the controversial casting of Dwayne Johnson as King Kamehameha, the film weaves a vital tapestry of post-colonialism and pop culture with cinematic brio and a wry wit. Rock Bottom Riser is an essential document and an exhilarating tour-de-force, a palimpsest that traverses geology, ethnography and astronomy. Melting Snow Janah Elise Cox | 2021 | US | 9 mins. Melting Snow is a short archival documentary exploring the coloniality of Puerto Rico's labor through the symbol water. Masks are required.
