The author E.M. Forster wrote: “The main facts in human life are five: birth, food, sleep, love and death.” Yet each of us lives a story that is unique – and many of us feel a strong desire to get our stories down, and to share them.  Comic, tragic, full of secrets and insights, marvels and mysteries – the story of your life could be the most truthful, meaningful writing you do. It is the tale that only you can tell.

Join other “Lifers” every other Tuesday (Feb. 18 to May 13) from 1 to 3 PM, as we explore and find expression for our stories.

Max Bialystock was once one of Broadway’s most successful producers, but a string of flops has thrown his career into a tailspin.

The two work together to stage the world’s greatest flop.

This Week's Topic: U.S. trade policy By Michael O. Moore and Robert Maxim

America’s foreign policy tools are not limited to sanctions, treaties or military campaigns – they also include the sales pitch. The logic behind this pitch, or “economic statecraft,” is simple: promote the benefits of democracy and the free market. In so doing, the U.S. will gain valuable and stable partners, both in business and in diplomacy. Now, as China and other emerging nations battle the U.S. for global influence, Secretary Kerry will take the reigns as a free market matchmaker.

    Contact: Jessica D'Avanza   401.247.1920 x312   jessicad@barringtonlibrary.org
   

Protecting cultural property is a never-ending job for any art museum. But despite advanced security technologies, thieves are still able to slip past security and steal precious and highly valuable pieces. We’re accustomed to hearing stories about bank and jewelry store robberies, but we are often shocked when an art museum is the target of a successful heist. 

What drives a thief to steal a piece of artwork right off the museum wall, often in broad daylight? What really happens to the artwork after it’s stolen? 

Anthony Amore, director of security at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston, and an art crime expert will lecture about the world’s most significant art crimes, including the unsolved Gardner museum heist in 1990, when two thieves -- disguised as policemen -- stole 13 pieces of artwork, valued at $500 million. Amore has been leading the efforts to track down the missing artwork since joining the museum in 2005. 

Amore co-authored the book Stealing Rembrandts: The Untold Story of Notorious Art Heists (Palgrave, 2011). Q & A will be available after the lecture. Copies of Amore's book will also be for sale with book signing.

Saving Mr. Banks
Oscar Nomination: Music, Original Score

Starring Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti, Bradley Whitford and Jason Schwartzman
Directed by John Lee Hancock
2013; Rated PG-13, 125 minutes

A doting father, Walt Disney (Hanks) promises his adoring daughters that he will bring their favorite fictional nanny Mary Poppins to the big screen. Little does Walt realize that surly author P.L. Travers has no intention of seeing her most famous creation bastardized on the big screen, a fact that makes keeping his promise a difficult endeavor. Years later, however, when Travers' book sales begin to slow, dwindling finances drive her to schedule a meeting with Disney to discuss the film rights to the beloved story. For two weeks in 1961, a determined Disney does his absolute best to convince Travers that the film version of Mary Poppins will be a wondrous and respectful adaptation, meanwhile the author only grows more convinced that she has made the right move in preventing the proposed film adaptation. Later, just when it begins to appear that the rights to Mary Poppins have slipped through his fingers, the ingenious Disney reflects back on his childhood, and realizes that a sensitive chapter from Travers' youth could be the key to clinching the deal.

ent_microphone1 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM From Downton Abbey to Upstairs Downstairs: The Social Role of Women’s Fashion, 1910-39     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Jessica D'Avanza   401-247-1920 x312   jessicad@barringtonlibrary.org
   

When the youngest daughter of the Earl of Downton in the BBC television drama Downton Abbey chose a new evening dress with a divided ‘harem’ skirt, we knew that she was destined for a different life than her older sisters. Lady Sybil’s daring flirtation with avant-garde fashion prepared viewers for her later rebellion against the conservative, tradition-bound life she led. Similarly, in Upstairs Downstairs, when Lady Agnes posed for a stocking advertisement she pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable for a woman of her social class.

The time period encompassing these two television series concentrated more significant social change for European and American women than ever before—much of it expedited by the First World War. These years saw women gain both economic and political power, as they parleyed a new social consciousness and war work into a host of new pursuits, challenges, and opportunities in the years between two cataclysmic wars.
 
This illustrated talk explores how women’s fashion in this dramatic era changed right along with women’s lives, sometimes leading the way, sometimes running to catch up.

Madelyn Shaw is an independent curator and author specializing in the exploration of American history and culture through textiles and dress. She also spent (or mis-spent) her twenties as a theatrical costumer, working on Broadway, off-Broadway, and regional  productions—which gives her a little insight into why the costume designers for these shows made some of the choices they did.  Ms. Shaw has curated numerous exhibitions, most recently “Color Revolution: Style Meets Science” for the American Textile Museum in Lowell, MA, and "Homefront & Battlefield: Quilts & Context in the Civil War, which opened recently at the New-York Historical Society. She is the author of several publications, and her work has won numerous awards.

New England has long had a rich tradition of Celtic-inspired music. Pendragon has embraced that tradition and created a timeless sound of its own, performing roots music with an unmistakable contemporary edge. Pendragon's music celebrates the lives and lore of generations of New Englanders who brought traditions from Ireland, Scotland, French Canada and other distant shores to the banks of the Blackstone River.
