VISUAL ART LECTURE: CASANOVA ~ THE SEDUCTION OF EUROPE with Professor Thomas Germano
2:00 PM

Casanova: The Seduction of Europe explores the 18th century across Europe through the eyes of one of its most colorful characters, Giacomo Casanova (1725--1798). Renowned in modern times for his amorous pursuits, Casanova lived not only in Italy, but in France and England, and his travels took him to the Ottoman Empire and to meet Catherine the Great in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
A visual art presentation of Paintings, sculpture, works on paper, furnishings, porcelains, silver and period costume will bring the world of Casanova's 18th century to life. The exhibition will be shown at the Kimbell Art Museum in TX from August 27 through December 31, 2017 before traveling to the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2018. Professor Thomas Germano will present a visual lecture relating the exhibition.

KEEPING MANHASSET HEALTHY: MINDFULNESS MEDITATION
7:30 PM

Meditation helps us to slow down our busy minds and silently observe our thoughts. Our thoughts shape our days and our lives, so by sitting still and paying close attention we can become more aware of what comes up in the mind. As we become more aware, we can choose the direction of our thoughts. Studies have shown that awareness has a powerful effect on healing the mind and body. By focusing and leading the mind away from stressful thoughts toward peaceful thoughts we relieve stress and strengthen the immune system.

CELEBRATE LITERARY LUMINARIES ~ GEORGE ELIOT
2:00 PM

In an exciting new monthly program, Dr. Lynch will celebrate literary luminaries in recognition of their birthdays or anniversaries of extraordinary publications.  Selections for her evocative reading aloud will be drawn from various genres, countries, and time periods.  Each author can inspire, stimulate, and move us with his/her unique talents.

GEORGE ELIOT (MARY ANN EVANS  b. November 22, 1819)
One of the “eminent Victorians,” Mary Ann Evans used the male pen name George Eliot in an effort to have her fiction taken seriously and to have it considered in a separate vein from her editorial work.  Intense realism marked her style and political concerns infused her plots.  Her characters, inhabiting small English villages, invite psychological interpretations.  (Excerpts from Silas Marner and Middlemarch)
