Moonstone - Wilkie Collins
The Moonstone is a masterpiece of suspense. A fabulous yellow diamond becomes the dangerous inheritance of Rachel Verinder. Outside her Yorkshire country house watch the Hindu priests who have waited for many years to reclaim their ancient talisman, looted from the holy city of Somnauth. When the Moonstone disappears the case looks simple, but in mid-Victorian England no one is what they seem, and nothing can be taken for granted. Witnesses, suspects, and detectives each narrate the story in turn. The bemused butler, the love-stricken housemaid, the enigmatic detective Sergeant Cuff, the drug-addicted
scientist--each speculate on the mystery as Collins weaves their narratives together. Refreshments will be served. Copies available at the Circulation Desk May 20.

Following the Russian revolution (1917) the priority stated by Lenin and Trotsky was to reconstruct all prevailing ideology. All core beliefs regarding education, religion, anti-semitism, role of woman and the military had to be smashed.  Major artists were recruited to create visually exciting, vibrant posters to carry their messages. You will see a combination of great art and propaganda. Together they create a remarkable visual impact.  Evelyn Silver, docent from the Nassau County Museum of Art will present this program.
