Babe Zaharias, Sat, April 1 @ Noon

 
Babe Didrikson Zaharias

The Greatest Ever

Sat, April 1 @ Noon

Actress Linda Kenyon will channel the multi-talented Babe Didrikson in a performance sure to astound whether you love sports or not.


Born Mildred Ella Didrikson in Texas 1911, Babe became America's greatest female athlete. She combined raw talent, hard work, and an unquenchable thirst for winning in a world in which women were not allowed or encouraged to be athletic, competitive, ambitious or to sweat.

For us today, it is no "big deal" to have women competing in sports. Not many years ago, this was a revolutionary idea - and Babe led the revolution.

 

Book Club: To Capture What We Cannot Keep

Set against the construction of the Eiffel Tower, this novel charts the relationship between a young Scottish widow and a French engineer who, despite constraints of class and wealth, fall in love.

Looking forward to seeing you on Monday, April 17 at 7pm.

Cover Art
To Capture What We Cannot Keep by Beatrice Colin
In February 1887, Caitriona Wallace and Émile Nouguier meet in a hot air balloon, floating high above Paris, France--a moment of pure possibility. But back on firm ground, their vastly different social strata become clear. Cait is a widow who because of her precarious financial situation is forced to chaperone two wealthy Scottish charges. Émile is expected to take on the bourgeois stability of his family's business and choose a suitable wife. As the Eiffel Tower rises, a marvel of steel and air and light, the subject of extreme controversy and a symbol of the future, Cait and Émile must decide what their love is worth.

Seamlessly weaving historical detail and vivid invention, Beatrice Colin evokes the revolutionary time in which Cait and Émile live--one of corsets and secret trysts, duels and Bohemian independence, strict tradition and Impressionist experimentation. To Capture What We Cannot Keep, stylish, provocative, and shimmering, raises probing questions about a woman's place in that world, the overarching reach of class distinctions, and the sacrifices love requires of us all.

Write your Memoir
Five Minutes at a Time

Have you been thinking about writing your own memoir but don’t know how to get started? Or, you feel there’s a gap between what you want to say and the words you put down on paper?

You will learn how to tap into your memory and create and piece together moments of your life literally “five minutes at a time.” From writing prompts that will bring out stories you didn’t even know you carried inside you to lessons in the craft of memoir to suggestions on how to develop and sustain a writing practice, Edvige Giunta’s workshop is packed with useful and inspiring activities that will help the memoirist in you blossom. Edvige Giunta is a Professor of English @ New Jersey City University.

 

This program is funded by the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
