The now-classic memoir that shocked, outraged, and ultimately changed the way America looked at the civil rights movement and the black experience. By turns shocking and lyrical, unblinking and raw, the searingly honest memoirs of Eldridge Cleaver are a testament to his unique place in American history. Cleaver writes in Soul on Ice, "I'm perfectly aware that I'm in prison, that I'm a Negro, that I've been a rapist, and that I have a Higher Uneducation." What Cleaver shows the readers, on the pages of this now classic autobiography, is how much he was a man. Eldridge Cleaver wrote Soul on Ice, a best-selling collection of essays about his time in prison, and was the minister of information for the Black Panthers. Please read the book before attending the book discussion.

Opening Reception |


An exhibition consisting of photographs by German photographer Wilhelm von Gloeden (1856-1931). Throughout Von Gloeden’s career, he captured pastoral nudes of young men in Sicily. Upon his 1877 arrival to Taormina, he saw young men as vestiges of a Greco-Roman golden age when male homoeroticism was relatively tolerated. Inspired by the liberalism and Arcadian landscapes he saw in Sicily, Von Gloeden reappropriated classical culture through his nude sitters, accessorizing them with Greco-Roman motifs of skimpy togas, olive wreaths, and amphorae.

One hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises. For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their workouts, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build. Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost. Led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Every Saturday.

Take this summer's coolest walking tour with Tompkins Square Library manager Corinne Neary and street photographer Michael Paul. Once the most densely crowded district in America, the East Village started as a true melting pot of immigrants. It was New York City's first racially integrated neighborhood. Eastern European Jews, Germans, Italians, Irish, Greeks, Hungarians, Poles, Russians, Ukrainians, Puerto Ricans, Muslims, Indians, Koreans and Dominicans all made a new life here. Tompkins Square Park is a place where different cultures share their heritage: art, dance, food, fashion and music. After the Civil War, Tompkins Square Park was the only major open space for immigrants to gather and relax on the east side of Manhattan between Union Square and City Hall.

Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful thirteen-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims—a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story—and survive this homecoming. Gillian Flynn has published three novels, Sharp Objects, Dark Places, and Gone Girl, all three of which have been adapted for film or television. She was formerly a television critic for Entertainment Weekly

No experience is necessary though rowing does require some physical dexterity. Community Rowing events are free sessions that include a basic introduction to rowing for first timers (safety orientation, rowing technique, and terminology) and of course plenty of actual rowing on the Hudson River. The rows take place in five-person wooden rowboats built on site. The rows last, depending on river conditions and crew experience, between one and three hours. Please arrive on-time as the crews will be assigned before 1PM. Bring extra water, a hat, and sunscreen as you will be rowing outdoors in the hot sun. Rowing is weather dependent and will be canceled for high winds, rain, or thunderstorms. All participants must sign a waiver and be able to climb a ladder. Every Sunday from June 10-October 21, 2018.

Artist Erwin Wurm has transformed a vintage Volkswagen Microbus into an overstuffed food truck serving free dogs! It's an absurd, yet approachable art experience that will encourage visitors to rethink the fundamental definitions of sculpture. Wurm's choice of the hot dog hints at the gastronomic connections between the City’s most iconic street food and his Austrian homeland, while he considers the act of eating to be an additive sculptural process in its own right.

This year, the talented wordsmith Rapsody was the only woman nominated for a Best Rap Album Grammy. But she’s hardly a newcomer; Rapsody’s been shaking up hip-hop for over a decade, and claimed the only guest verse on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly, on “Complexion.” Fans can expect cuts from the Grammy-nominated album Laila’s Wisdom, where she tackles gnarled topics not limited to beauty standards and breakups, with the singular finesse that only a true star can do.
