Colonel Behrani, once a wealthy man in Iran, is now a struggling immigrant willing to bet everything he has to restore his family's dignity. Kathy Nicolo is a troubled young woman whose house is all she has left, and who refuses to let her hard-won stability slip away from her. Sheriff Lester Burdon, a married man who finds himself falling in love with Kathy, becomes obsessed with helping her fight for justice. Drawn by their competing desires to the same small house in the California hills and doomed by their tragic inability to understand one another, the three converge in an explosive collision course. Combining unadorned realism with profound empathy, House of Sand and Fog marks the arrival of a major new voice in American fiction.</td> </tr></tbody></div> </div> MS Word 2010 for Beginners (Mid-Manhattan Library) //www.nypl.org/node/366911 <div class="vevent"> <p><span class="location">Mid-Manhattan Library, 4th Floor PC Lab</span> <br /><abbr class="dtstart" title="2016-09-28T10:30:00-04:00">Wednesday, September 28 - 10:30 am</abbr></p><div class="summary"><p>Learn the basic features of Microsoft Word 2010, a word processing program you can use to create documents.

The Library proudly houses and preserves not one but six First Folios, a true asset to our collections. To mark the 400th anniversary of the Bard's death, the Library, in partnership with Theatre for a New Audience, invites you to join in the thrill of seeing the First Folio in person, followed by a conversation between Folger Shakespeare Library Director emerita Gail Kern Paster and Shakespeare scholar Tanya Pollard. With an introduction by Richard McCoy, Chair of TFANA’s Council of Scholars, the two will discuss the Folio’s innovative origins, its history as a wildly coveted and carefully conserved artifact, and its continued role in the robust afterlife of Shakespeare. </p> <p>Gail Kern Paster took office as Director of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C. in 2002 and retired from that position as Director emerita in July 2011. She now serves as Editor of Shakespeare Quarterly, published by the Folger Shakespeare Library. She was a Professor of English at George Washington University from 1974 to 2002. She earned a B.A., magna cum laude, at Smith College, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and a Ph.D. at Yale University. She is the author of numerous scholarly articles and three books—The Idea of the City in the Age of Shakespeare (1986), The Body Embarrassed: Drama and the Disciplines of Shame in Early Modern England (1993), and Humoring the Body: Emotions and the Shakespearean Stage (2004). She is the co-editor of the Bedford Books "A Midsummer Night’s Dream”: Texts and Contexts (1998), editor of Thomas Middleton’s 1607 comedy, Michaelmas Term (2000), and co-editor (with Mary Floyd-Wilson and Katherine A. Rowe) of Reading the Early Modern Passions: Essays on Emotion (2004). She continues to pursue her scholarly interests in the cultural history of the body and the emotions. Dr. Paster has been a trustee of the Shakespeare Association of America and served as President of that organization in 2003. She was recently elected to the Board of Governors of the Folger Shakespeare Library and to the Board of Trustees of the Newberry Library, Chicago.</p> <p>Tanya Pollard is Professor of English at Brooklyn College and the CUNY Graduate Center, and a member of the Council of Scholars for Theater for a New Audience.  Her books include Shakespeare’s Theater: A Sourcebook (Blackwell, 2003); Drugs and Theater in Early Modern England (Oxford, 2005); and Shakespearean Sensations: Experiencing Literature in Early Modern England, co-edited with Katharine Craik (Cambridge, 2013). With Tania Demetriou, she has co-edited Milton, Drama, and Greek Texts, a special issue of The Seventeenth Century Journal (2016), and Greek Texts on Early Modern England’s Commercial Stages, a special issue of Classical Receptions Journal coming out in January; wth Marcus Nevitt, she has co-edited Tragedy: A Reader in Theory and Criticism, coming out with Bloomsbury next year.  She is currently completing a book titled Greek Tragic Women on Shakespearean Stages, coming out with Oxford next year, and is editing Ben Jonson’s play The Alchemist for Arden Early Modern Drama.</p> <p>Richard McCoy is Distinguished Professor of English at Queens College and the Graduate Center, CUNY. He earned his B.A. at Stanford University and Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley. He has written four books – Sir Philip Sidney: Rebellion in Arcadia (Rutgers, 1979), The Rites of Knighthood: The Literature and Politics of Elizabethan Chivalry (California, 1989), Alterations of State: Sacred Kingship in the English Reformation (Columbia, 2002), and Faith in Shakespeare (Oxford, 2013; pbk. 2015).

He has also served as a speaker for Shakespeare performances for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Canada’s Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Classic Stage Company, Target Margin, Soho Rep, The Pearl, and the Public Theater.</p> <p>The event will convene in Gottesman Hall, where a First Folio and other rare items from the Library’s Shakespeare collections will be on special display. Guests will then make their way to Celeste Auditorium, where the conversation will take place.</p> <p>------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------This is the first in a series of free events co-presented by the Library and Theatre for a New Audience: public dialogues between the Library’s Shakespeare collections and TFANA’s family of artists and scholars.

Over her forty-plus-year career, Gunderson has tackled subjects from clouds to royalty to the cosmos. Her long-developed, labor intensive technique employs a range of black shades that create a unique three-dimensional effect.</p> <p>Tracing the life and career of the artist, Karen Gunderson: The Dark World of Light is written by author and critic Elizabeth Frank, who won the Pulitzer Prize for her biography of poet Louise Bogan and is the author of a number of books on art. </p> <p>Art lovers and artists interested in Gunderson’s painting technique discover captivating works in this book—in more than 100 illustrations—that shows how the artist pushes the limits to what one can do with black paint. While abstract artists of the past, including Ad Reinhardt and Pierre Soulages, have employed black paint, Gunderson has set herself apart from this lineage.</p> <p>Advance copies of the book Karen Gunderson: The Dark World of Light (Abbeville Press, 2016) are available for purchase and signing at the end of the event.</p> <p><a href="http://www.waterhousedodd.com/about/about_us.html" rel="nofollow">Waterhouse and Dodd</a> is pleased to present the exhibition <a href="http://www.waterhousedodd.com/exhibitions/Gunderson_Moments" rel="nofollow">Karen Gunderson: Moments Past and Present</a> featuring a range of works spanning her forty-plus-year career.

With a career of over forty years, Gunderson is best known for her paintings composed entirely in black that both critics and collectors alike have praised as a unique contribution to contemporary art. Gunderson's work has been included in more than eighty group exhibitions and been the subject of over forty solo exhibitions in the United States and abroad, including Circulo de Bellas Artes in Spain and the National Museum of Bahrain. <a href="http://clampart.com/2012/02/karen-gunderson/" rel="nofollow">She</a> has distinguished herself not only with her use of figurative subjects, but also the way her works radiate a quiet optimism—a sharp contrast with her dark medium. Having obtained an MA in Painting and an MFA in Intermedia, Gunderson has taught in multiple organizations including the Chicago Art Institute and the Maryland Institute College of Art. Among many other publications, she has been featured in The New York Times, Art in America, Christian Science Monitor, New York Magazine, and ARTnews.</p> <p><a href="http://artwriting.sva.edu/?faculty=michael-brenson" rel="nofollow">Michael Brenson</a> is an art critic and art historian.

Jones, Corthron's The Castle Cross the Magnet Carter bridges the political and the poetic.  Corthon will be in conversation with Margo Jefferson, author of the memoir, <a href="http://browse.nypl.org/iii/encore/search/C__St%3A%28Negroland%29%20%20a%3A%28Margo%20Jefferson%29__Orightresult__U?lang=eng&amp;suite=def">Negroland</a>, and former New York Times theater critic, and professor at Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at The New School.  </p> <p>A book signing will follow.</p> <p><a href="https://twitter.com/SchomburgCenter" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">@SchomburgCenter</a> #MagnetCarter</p> First come, first seated <p>For free events, we generally overbook to ensure a full house.
