Unike autobiography, memoir is based on the idea that everyone has a story to tell, a story that matters.  Writing memoir asks that one awaken and be guided by empathy towards oneself and others.  In this way, memoir prompts a journey of self-discovery that enables writers to gain insight into their past.

Through valuable lessons in the craft of memoir, the exploration of editorial revisions, and invaluable writing suggestions, participants learn how to develop a writing practice and continue their writing life beyond the session.

Presented by Edvige Giunta, Ph.D., professor of English, New Jersey City University.  Dr. Giunta has taught writing workshops since 1997, guiding many writers through the writing journey. She has published several books on Italian American literature and culture and was featured in the New York Times and RAI.  Her memoir, essays, poems, translations and flash nonfiction have been published in many anthologies and journals.

Participants are asked to bring a notebook and pen.  Registration is requested.

    Contact:    732-683-8980   
   

Dr. Philip Wolfson, author of the groundbreaking techno thriller, Faces Tell All: When Match Makers Turn Spy Catchers, will give a presentation about the topic of facial recognition technology, as he introduces us to his novel.  He explains:  “Big Brother could soon be watching you with sophisticated spy cameras: revealing not only who you are but also what you’re about: your physical and emotional health as well as your actions and intentions. And Faces Tell All relates how it all could happen."

"This means matchmakers and potential employers could determine from your face and body language whether you are habitually happy or sad, stressed or relaxed, vibrant or sluggish; while law enforcement and national security professionals would be looking to spot deceit, guilt or fear."

Faces Tell All is the world’s first work of fiction devoted to face scanning technology; the plot involves a face-reading app intended for the dating crowd which due to its potential for espionage attracts the CIA and Chinese Intelligence—who then battle for the coveted technology. The book also illustrates the power of facial imagery on mass audiences, in an imagined demonstration of computer re-created history enhanced by hypnotic cinematography.

Faces Tell All should attract followers of cinema, media, fact-based fiction, international politics and computer technology as well as students of social psychology and multiculturalism.  Read the book, but also browse the website, philipwolfson.com, comment and join the conversation about faces and related topics.

The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey has launched a new summer touring company called The Shrewd Mechanicals. The work of this tight-knit ensemble of young professionals has been met with much acclaim in their debut season and we are delighted to announce their performance!

This performance will focus on the special brand of temporary madness that overtakes people when they fall madly in love!  Verily, Madly, Thine will highlight a wonderful array of moments from Shakespeare’s plays as well as selections from more contemporary authors who have been inspired by The Bard. Verily, Madly Thine also features a delightful sprinkling of music. Fall in love with this entertaining collection of scenes inhabited by the victims of Cupid’s arrows.

Don’t miss this wonderful quartet as they bring to life the joy, wit, poetry, and music of the world’s greatest playwright — and those he’s inspired. 
 
Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  Registration not needed. . Video Recording is not allowed.
