Technology journalist Jared Newman has been cable TV-free since 2008, and has documented the rise of cord–cutting through his popular TechHive column and his Cord Cutter Weekly newsletter, which has more than 13,000 subscribers. In this session, Jared will talk through all your cord–cutting options, explain some of the latest devices, and answer your questions.  Jared will be joining us via Skype and will simultaneously stream live on YouTube.

THE SEARCH FOR GENERAL TSO
Monday, December 17 at 7 p.m.
 
A Becoming American Series Film
Discussion with Michael D’Innocenzo 
As much an immigration history as a culinary detective story, this ebullient documentary uses the ubiquitous Americanized dish, General Tso’s chicken, as a lens onto a larger story of immigration, adaptation and innovation to American popular culture. Early on, the film poses the question, “If Chinese Americans comprise only 1% of the U.S. population, why are there Chinese restaurants in almost every city across America?”  The filmmakers seek the answer in a journey through the Chinese American experience, from the Gold Rush and the building of the railroads, to the age of Panda Express. 
Rating: Not Rated   Running Time: 1 hr. 11 min.

MEET THE AUTHOR PROGRAM:
The Revolution of ’28:

the Coming of the New Deal 
by Robert Chiles

Tuesday, December 18 at 1 p.m. 

This relevant program explores the career of New York governor and 1928 Democratic presidential nominee Alfred E. Smith.

The book charts the rise of that progressivism during Smith’s years as a state legislator, Governor of NY, and to his 1928 presidential campaign. The new-stock voters responded enthusiastically to Smith’s candidacy on both economic and cultural levels. Robert Chiles will have books available for purchase.

Sunday, December 23 at 2 p.m.
Reservations open on Tuesday, December 4
Enjoy music from the Renaissance era. The perfect music for the Holiday Season.  The Bacheler Consort is named after the late-Elizabethan lute virtuoso Daniel Bacheler (1572–1619), a most imaginative composer of instrumental music whose genius is becoming more widely known today.  The Consort has been together since 2003 and has acquired a reputation for combining scholarly research with cutting-edge historical performance practice and musical talent of the highest caliber.  It is in this alchemy that the Consort aspires to conjure up the more elusive aesthetics of Renaissance music-making. Celebrate the Holiday Season in calm and beauty.  Reservations open on Tuesday, December 4. Register online at www.eastmeadow.info, or call the Public Relations office, at 794-2570, ext. 560.
