Greenwich Village is among Manhattan's most desirable and expensive residential neighborhoods. It's history, however, betrays it's monied status. The Village, with it's quiet, shaded streets, lined with lovely brick and brownstone townhouses, was once the incubating ground of artistic, social and political movements that have helped shape US history. From the Beats to the Folk Movement, from workers rights to gay rights, the Village has often been the center of it all.

The area around the High Line Park was a vital business district of New York City, supplying fresh fruits, French Cheeses and Russian caviar as well as fresh meats to City markets. The hustle and bustle of the streets induced the City to elevate the railroad trains delivering goods to the commercial buildings. When interstate truck traffic made the railway outdated, it fell into ruin, only to be regenerated as a park.

How do you tell a story with a photograph? And when a story is big and tragic and in your own backyard, how do you keep your cool and bring that story home to the backyard of people around the world? These are the dilemmas of every photojournalist. Thomas E. Franklin was confronted with this dilemma on September 11, 2001. An award-winning photographer, Thomas captured one of the most iconic images of 9/11, and image that was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, was put on a postage stamp, and became the symbol of resilience and recovery. In this presentation, Thomas will discuss his experiences that day, and the aftermath, and all that happened after his image became an icon. He will also talk about his larger body of work, including his documentaries and coverage of important, gripping stories of today.

Life in today’s world is stressful. People are anxious about their health, their finances, their relationships, their safety and their work. Doctor’s and medical practitioners are promoting the benefits of meditation to relieve stress and anxiety.  By sitting in meditation, we can calm the body and the mind. We can slow our brain waves to states of relaxation. When we are in a state of physical and mental calmness, we have more control over our reactions towards life’s stressors.  Through meditation we can cope with the stresses of life. Meditation helps us replace anxiety with joy and peace. Dr. Frank Pawlowski delivers this informative lecture. There will even be a short meditation sitting.

Historically, chikha performers in Morocco have provided entertainment for important celebrations and, as significant, spread lyrics of resistance during the era of French colonization. Yet tensions have arisen as performers negotiate a globalized society propelled by personal technology. Extending Meriem Bennani’s ecstatic depictions of female roles ascribed by culture, her new video offers an intimate view into the lives of Siham and Hafida, two women whose intergenerational conflicts regarding the chikha tradition reflect greater shifts in Moroccan culture of the past 50 years. Moreover, their oppositional approaches point to uncanny parallels between the new presence of chikha performance on social media and the oral traditions of Aita, the musical genre of the chikha and its dances. Bennani captures the performance of femininity celebrated by social and religious mores, as well as the less constrained moments in which this performance can recede.

Christian Delage discusses a research program he led with the Institut d'Histoire du Temps Present that involved filming the testimonies of the women and men who lived through the terrorist attacks in Paris and St. Denis on November 13, 2015, in which 130 people were killed. The aim was to capture a broad picture of the memory of what happened that night, by interviewing not only survivors of the attacks but the whole chain of people involved: police officers, fire-fighters, doctors, restaurant and bar owners. To provide a comparative perspective on how oral histories can serve to capture the personal memories of victims in the immediate aftermath of such events, Mary Marshall Clark talks about her interview project analyzing the role September 11 played in New Yorkers' lives and how these New York stories differ from what 9/11 has come to mean in the national media.

In addition to his thirteen-volume sequence A Series of Unfortunate Events and the four-book series All the Wrong Questions, written as Lemony Snicket, bestselling author Daniel Handler has penned numerous novels for adults, including his most recent, All the Dirty Parts. Written from the perspective of high-schooler Cole, All the Dirty Parts is an unblinking take on teenage desire in a culture of unrelenting explicitness and shunted communication, described as “a spectacular portrait of teenage male desire.”         About All the Dirty Parts Cole is a boy in high school. He runs cross country, he sketches, he jokes around with friends. But none of this quite matters next to the allure of sex. "Let me put it this way," he says. "Draw a number line, with zero is you never think about sex and ten is, it's all you think about, and while you are drawing the line, I am thinking about sex." Cole fantasizes about whomever he's looking at. He consumes and shares pornography. And he sleeps with a lot of girls, which is beginning to earn him a not-quite-savory reputation around school. This leaves him adrift with only his best friend for company, and then something startling starts to happen between them that might be what he's been after all this time-and then he meets Grisaille. All The Dirty Parts is an unblinking take on teenage desire in a culture of unrelenting explicitness and shunted communication, where sex feels like love, but no one knows what love feels like. With short chapters in the style of Jenny Offill or Mary Robison, Daniel Handler gives us a tender, brutal, funny, intoxicating portrait of an age when the lens of sex tilts the world. "There are love stories galore," Cole tells us, "This isn't that. The story I'm typing is all the dirty parts."   About Modern Lovers Friends and former college bandmates Elizabeth and Andrew and Zoe have watched one another marry, buy real estate, and start businesses and families, all while trying to hold on to the identities of their youth. But nothing ages them like having to suddenly pass the torch (of sexuality, independence, and the ineffable alchemy of cool) to their own offspring. Back in the band's heyday, Elizabeth put on a snarl over her Midwestern smile, Andrew let his unwashed hair grow past his chin, and Zoe was the lesbian all the straight women wanted to sleep with. Now nearing fifty, they all live within shouting distance in the same neighborhood deep in gentrified Brooklyn, and the trappings of the adult world seem to have arrived with ease. But the summer that their children reach maturity (and start sleeping together), the fabric of the adult lives suddenly begins to unravel, and the secrets and revelations that are finally let loose—about themselves, and about the famous fourth band member who soared and fell without them—can never be reclaimed. Straub packs wisdom and insight and humor together in a satisfying book about neighbors and nosiness, ambition and pleasure, the excitement of youth, the shock of middle age, and the fact that our passions—be they food, or friendship, or music—never go away, they just evolve and grow along with us.       Daniel Handler is the author of the novels We Are Pirates, The Basic Eight, Watch Your Mouth, Adverbs, and Why We Broke Up, a 2012 Michael L. Printz Honor Book. As Lemony Snicket, he is responsible for many books for children, including the thirteen-volume sequence A Series of Unfortunate Events and the four-book series All the Wrong Questions. He is married to the illustrator Lisa Brown, and lives with her and their son in San Francisco. Emma Straub is the New York Times bestselling author of Modern Lovers, The Vacationers, Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures, and the short story collection Other People We Married. Her fiction and nonfiction have been published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Elle, and Conde Nast Traveler, and she is a contributing writer for Rookie. Straub’s work has been published in fifteen countries. She is owner of the independent book store Books are Magic.
