Introduction to Tai Chi for Health
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

George Donahue will demonstrate a modified form of tai chi for health, a system developed by Dr. Paul Lam which eliminates or modifies some of the traditional movements that are particularly challenging—deep knee bends, low stances, and difficult postures. George emphasizes chi gong (meditative breath control), balance, and fluidity.

In addition to teaching tai chi for health in area YMCAs and nursing homes, George teaches karate and traditional weapon arts, and yoga. He volunteers as a cancer exercise specialist and serves as a Livestrong at the Y trainer.

With George’s approach, participants will definitely laugh as they practice tai chi!

Truth Be Told: Tuesday Night Non-Fiction Book Discussion
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis by J.D. Vance
Author J.D. Vance, a former marine and Yale Law School graduate, provides an account of growing up in a poor Rust Belt town that offers a broader, probing look at the struggles of America's white working class. The disintegration of this group, a process that has been slowly occurring now for more than 40 years, has been reported with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck.

Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk. Discussion moderated by Parul Kapur Hinzen, a journalist and literary critic whose writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The Wall Street Journal Europe, Esquire, GQ, New York Newsday, The American Book Review, Guernica, and Slate. She is a longtime member of the National Book Critics Circle.

The Game: Harvard, Yale, and America in 1968
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Bestselling author George Howe Colt will talk about his new book, The Game: Harvard, Yale, and America in 1968, and answer questions.

The book tells the story of the 1968 Harvard-Yale football game, the legendary 29-29 tie that is included on nearly every list of the top ten most exciting games in college football history. Although it includes a detailed description of the game itself, the book is about a watershed year in American history (the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, rioting at the Democratic National Convention, the Tet Offensive, increasing racial tension, not to mention sex, drugs, and rock and roll) as navigated by a group of young men and by the contrasting institutions they attended. The Wall Street Journal called it "the rare sports book that lives up to the claim of so many entrants in this genre: It is, in its way, the portrait of an era."

Gaudy Night [1935] by Dorothy L. Sayers
When Harriet Vane attends her Oxford reunion, known as the 'Gaudy, ' the prim academic setting is haunted by a rash of bizarre pranks: scrawled obscenities, burnt effigies and poison-pen letters--including one that says, "Ask your boyfriend with the title if he likes arsenic in his soup." Some of the notes threaten murder; all are perfectly ghastly; yet in spite of their scurrilous nature, all are perfectly worded. And Harriet finds herself ensnared in a nightmare of romance and terror, with only the tiniest shreds of clues to challenge her powers of detection--and those of her paramour, Lord Peter Wimsey.
