Flowing with the Seasons
presented by Mankh
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Haiku poetry encourages attention to the present moment as well as keeping connected with the pathway of seasons.  It is a wonderful way to align with nature, enhance one’s mindfulness (as well as ZEN mindlessness), and hone your verbal skills (being so short, haiku requires great precision). Learn about haiku as a way of life, literary genre and creative hobby.

Mankh is author/editor of Haiku One Breaths: a voice through a tangle, and publishes an annual Haiku Calendar. His haiku and related writings have been published in Frogpond, simplyhaiku.com, thehaikufoundation.org, newsday.com, and more. He has been teaching haiku for many years.

lib_bookflipping 2:00 PM  -  3:30 PM Noah Lederman Author Talk
A World Erased: A Grandson’s Search for His Family’s Holocaust Secrets
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

This poignant memoir by Noah Lederman, the grandson of Holocaust survivors, transports readers from his grandparents’ kitchen table in Brooklyn to World War II Poland.  Together, Noah and his grandmother explore the memories— of Auschwitz and a half-dozen other camps, the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, and the displaced persons camps—that his grandmother had buried for decades.  I was left with the stories—the ones that had been hidden, the ones that offered catharsis, the ones that gave me a second hero, the ones that resurrected a family, the ones that survived even death. Their shared journey profoundly illuminates the transformative power of never forgetting.

Noah Lederman has written for The Economist, The Boston Globe, Miami Herald, The Washington Post, Slate, The New Republic, Chicago Sun-Times, BBC Travel, Salon, The Philadelphia Inquirer, San Francisco Chronicle, Tablet Magazine, The Jerusalem Post Magazine, Tikkun, Long Island Pulse, and Writer’s Digest. 

Noah Lederman will sign books available for purchase at the program.  This is a pre-publication event.

CHOOSING

What’s one of the best choices you have ever made?
Do you consider yourself a smart/wise chooser?  Why?
In choosing, do you usually rely more on intuition, or analyis,  or….?
Do you have any tools, techniques, or strategies that  you use in choosing?
To what degree do you think that our lives are determined by our choices?
How free are we when we choose?   Do unconcious forces shape our choices?

The Salon sessions are informed by Gross’ work at Columbia University as co-chair of the University Seminar on Innovation, and inspired by his book about the patron saint of conversation, Socrates’ Way, which has been published in 26 countries. Enjoy light refreshments and thoughtful conversation. Topics will be announced one month before the Salon.

To receive further information about this session and ensuing ones,
please send an e-mail to Ron Gross at grossassoc@aol.com
