The Mount: A Play in Two Acts

January 18, 2014 at 2 p.m.

The Wharton Project, Part I: Leisure

January 25, 2014 at 2 p.m.

$15

Inspired by Edith Wharton's own life, love affair, and writing style, Part 1: Leisure is the first in a 3-part play cycle and a highly theatrical tragedy of manners. Unspeakably rich novelist Grace Hunter and her Irish maid, Lucy, take an intoxicating ride through the class system, sexual poliltics, decadence, elaborate dinner parties, and a treatment of mental illness in 1907 New York City. While Grace's husband, Harry, loses his grip on his sanity, she embarks on a passionate love affair with the mysterious Delancey Morris. The drama reveals itselef through experimental movement, psychological gesture, theatrical jump cuts and multiple characters shifts.

The Bunner Sisters

February 1, 2014 at 2 p.m.

$15

The Bunner Sisters was inspired by an Edith Wharton novella about two spinster sisters living together in a tenement basement in Lower Manhattan in the late 1880s. When an unattached man enters the picture, their complacent existence is turned upside down, awakening dormant passions in each. Unlike much of Edith Wharton's fiction, which deals with the upper classes of New York's Gilded Age, The Bunner Sisters focuses on the lives and struggles of two working-class women of that era.

by

Of Laird White's book of poems - published by Finishing Line Press -Michele Gillette says her work, "strikes the balance between ordinary events in life and the ways they can suddenly turn extraordinary. White handles her subjects adeptly through playful language, striking metaphor and interesting detail." She started writing poetry as a child and later became a comedy writer for cabarets, but poetry is her prime love. Her goal is "not just to share with people, but to connect with them."

Sauces A Global History by Maryann Tebben
Sauces have the ability to transform any food from dull to delectable; they are food enhancers that define national cuisines. They can be savory or sweet, simple or complex, served as a side dish or presented as the main event. Sauces: A Global History takes readers on a journey from fermented sauces in fifth-century China to present-day cuisine. This book examines sauce as a globe-crossing phenomenon, a culinary concept that followed trade routes from East to West. Sauces explores the development of this gastronomic art, from the use of simple bread thickeners to the smooth sauces we know today.

The author will present sauces for tasting and discuss them after the reading.

and Roberta Hillenberg-Gang (Design)

To The Village Square retraces first-hand both the early days of the anti-nuclear movement and the aftermath of nuclear catastrophes at Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima. Through iconic images, internationally acclaimed photographer Lionel Delevingne, reveals various aspects of the nuclear theme, while presenting the power of citizens to effect social change.

This book is the culmination of my work over forty years documenting the anti-nuclear movement, beginning in the mid- seventies with the successful non-violent citizens' campaign to halt the construction of a nuclear power plant in Montague, Massachusetts. This was grassroots democracy in all its glory
This book is my small homage to the power of grassroots democracy in the pursuit of a safe and clean environment for us all.
-Lionel Delevingne, October 2014

Anna Gyorgy is the author of, No Nukes: everyone's guide to nuclear power and she has coordinated the international Women and Life on Earth Internet Project since 1999.
