DECODING U.S. - CHINA TRADE

Though arguably the most advanced economy in the world, the United States still uses centuries-old numbers to measure trade. These antique numbers mangle understanding of the U.S.-China trade relationship, shrinking America’s true economic size and competitiveness, while swelling China’s.  What other tools can the United States employ to counter China’s unfair trade practices?  There are several available, yet they remain mostly unused.  Short film followed by a group discussion facilitated by Kirk Ressler.

The World Below

Shelter Islander Timothy J. Dalton will explore his exploits as an underwater photographer focusing on large pelagic animals such as sharks, whales, large fish and other dwellers below the surface. His most recent trip was to the Azores to photograph sperm whales.  Mr. Dalton has passionately pursued underwater photography for the last twenty years and it has taken him around the world in search of the perfect shot. He says, “I have far surpassed my dreams with the variety of wildlife that I have encountered exploring Earth’s vast oceans.”  This talk is in conjunction with a display of Mr. Dalton’s work in our Community Room.

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte

The Tenant of Wildfell Hall is a powerful and sometimes violent novel of expectation, love, oppression, sin, religion and betrayal. It portrays the disintegration of the marriage of Helen Huntingdon and her dissolute, alcoholic husband. The book challenges the social conventions of the early nineteenth century in a strong defense of women's rights in the face of psychological abuse from their husbands. Anne Brontë's style is bold, naturalistic and passionate, and this novel, which her sister Charlotte considered 'an entire mistake', has earned her a position in English Literature in her own right.

Elvis in Vegas

Richard Zoglin’s Elvis in Vegas, which Publisher’s Weekly dubbed a “fascinating entertainment history,” is the story of how Las Vegas saved Elvis and Elvis saved Las Vegas.  Elvis’s 1969 opening night in Vegas was his first time back on a live stage in more than eight years. His career had gone sour—bad movies, and mediocre pop songs that no longer made the charts. But in Vegas he played the biggest showroom in the biggest hotel in the city, drawing more people for his four-week engagement than any other show in Vegas history. Hear Richard Zoglin talk about an iconic performer and a legendary city in its heyday.
