All events, things to do this week (Sun, 05/02/2021 - Sat, 05/08/2021)  are free unless otherwise noted.

Screening | Maestro: Searching for the Last Music (2016): Documentary, A Quest for Music Composed in WWII Camps (virtual, streaming for 24 hours)


In a small town in southern Italy, a quiet but determined hero has brought to life an entire history of forgotten music. For more than 20 years, pianist Francesco Lotoro has scoured Europe to discover and record music composed secretly in World War II camps. Aided by his wife and a handful of friends, he has archived over 4,000 scores, including symphonies, operas, folk songs, liturgical works, and also swing and gypsy music. From Prague to Krakow, from Rome to Paris, this is the astonishing story of a race against oblivion, where each note sounds like a challenge to the oppressor. The streaming is available until May 16th.

Tour | Monet's Giverny - A Home and Garden (virtual)


Claude Monet lived and painted in Giverny from 1883 to his death in 1926. He purchased a house and property and began a vast landscaping project which included lily ponds that would become the subjects of his best-known works. He began painting the water lilies in 1899, first in vertical views with a Japanese bridge as a central feature and later in the series of large-scale paintings that was to occupy him continuously for the next 20 years. Monet gained much of his inspiration from his gardens and believed it was important to surround himself with nature and paint outdoors.

Book Discussion | Secrets of Happiness: Author Talks About her Novel (virtual)


National Book Critics Circle Award-winning author Joan Silber presents her latest novel, Secrets of Happiness. Ethan, a young lawyer in New York, learns that his father has long kept a second family—a Thai wife and two kids living in Queens. In the aftermath of this revelation, Ethan’s mother spends a year working abroad, returning much changed, as events introduce her to the other wife. Across town, Ethan’s half-brothers are caught in their own complicated journeys, while the bargains their mother has struck about love and money continue to shape their lives. As Ethan finds himself caught in a love triangle of his own, the interwoven fates of these two households elegantly unfurl to encompass a woman rallying to help an ill brother with an unreliable lover and a filmmaker with a girlhood spent in Nepal. Evoking a generous and humane spirit, and a story that ranges over three continents, Secrets of Happiness elucidates the ways people marshal the resources at hand to forge their own forms of joy. Margot Livesey, acclaimed author of nine novels, most recently The Boy in the Field, joins Silber in conversation.

Discussion | New Beginnings: Jewish Refugees After the Holocaust (virtual)


At the conclusion of World War II, there were millions of refugees in Europe, including many Holocaust survivors who refused to go home or had no homes to return to. These survivors experienced struggles and successes as they sought to rebuild their lives in the shadow of the Holocaust, often in Displaced Persons (DP) camps. Tens of thousands emigrated to the United States between 1947 and 1953 and many more found their way to Israel. Explore the stories of these survivors and the lives they lived in the years immediately after the war. The program will feature David Nasaw, historian and author of The Last Million: Europe's Displaced Persons from World War to Cold War; Esther Safran Foer, author of I Want You To Know We're Still Here: A Post-Holocaust Memoir; and Joseph Berger, New York Times reporter who authored an account of his own family's experiences titled Displaced Persons: Growing Up American After the Holocaust.

Slide Lecture | Astronomy: Measuring the Ages of Ancient Worlds (virtual)


Measuring the ages of stars is one of the greatest challenges of modern astronomy. Join scientist Ruth Angus as she describes how she uses the rotation rates of stars to measure their ages and gather insights into the future of our solar system and others in the galaxy. Find out why determining the ages of stars will offer scientists a better chance of finding life signs in the atmospheres of distant planets—since some planets orbit stars that are extremely volatile, constantly erupting with powerful magnetic explosions that emit harmful radiation, while others orbit older stars, like our own Sun, which tend to be more tranquil, and more hospitable to life.

Lecture | Fourteenth Colony: The Forgotten Story of the Gulf South During America's Revolutionary Era (virtual)


In this lecture, historian Mike Bunn offers the first comprehensive history of the British colony of West Florida. For a host of reasons, including the fact that West Florida did not rebel against the British government, the colony has long been dismissed as a loyal but inconsequential fringe outpost, if considered at all. But the colony's history showcases a tumultuous political scene featuring a halting attempt at instituting representative government; a host of bold and colorful characters; a compelling saga of struggle and perseverance in the pursuit of financial stability; and a dramatic series of battles on land and water which brought about the end of its days under the Union Jack.
