Documentary Screening: Inocente
Sunday, May 26 at 2:00 PM
2013 Oscar Award Winning Documentary Screening: Inocente with Albie Hecht, Producer and Susan MacLaury, Executive Producer Sunday, May 26 at 2:00 p.m. No Fee A personal and vibrant coming of age story about a young artist's determination never to surrender to the bleakness of her surroundings.
At 15, Inocente refuses to let her dream of becoming an artist be caged by being an undocumented immigrant forced to live homeless for the last nine years. Color is her personal revolution and its sweep on her canvases creates a world that looks nothing like her own dark past. Inocente is both a timeless story about the transformative power of art and a timely snapshot of the new face of homelessness in America: children.
The challenges are staggering, but the hope in her story proves that the hand she has been dealt does not define her, her dreams do. After the screening please join us for a question and answer session with the producers followed by a reception. Registration is required as seating is limited.
Grand Central Terminal: 100 Years of a New York Landmark
Sunday, June 13 at 3:30 PM
Lecture by Author Anthony W. Robins--No Fee
On February 1st, 1913, the brand new Grand Central Terminal opened its doors to an admiring public. On February 1st, 2013, the beautifully restored Terminal - rescued from destruction by a seminal 1978 Supreme Court decision - celebrated its Centennial, accompanied by exhibitions, events, and a new book: Grand Central Terminal: 100 Years of a New York Landmark.
The Terminal's creation combined engineering bravado (sinking two train yards below ground), technological wizardry (electrifying the trains to eliminate steam and enable their underground functioning), and real-estate savvy (replacing the original street-level train yard with 16 blocks of newly prime Midtown Manhattan real-estate, whose development paid for it all) with innovative planning (interior ramps and looping tracks) and Paris-inspired Beaux-Arts design. This illustrated lecture by Anthony W. Robins, author of the new book, brings the Terminal to life - its remarkable history, stunning architecture, and central role in creating midtown Manhattan. Copies of Grand Central Terminal: 100 Years of a New York Landmark will be available for purchase after the event. Registration requested.
This program, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of the New York Council of the Humanities' Speakers in the Humanities program.

I have always been a fanatic reader, now particularly
of “mysteries.” And as a result of different friends
knowing of my voracious reading habit, many had the good judgment
to ask me for a recommendation of “a few books to read."
That resulted in the first “Bookletter” 13
years ago. And now through the magic of email--and the ease of “forwarding”--it
is read by about 300 people in 16 countries resulting in many new
friends around the world.
