VIRTUAL: The Noble Train (author talk)
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Zoom Webinar
Join us for a special zoom presentation by local author William Hazelgrove on his latest narrative non-fiction book, Henry Knox's Noble Train: The Story of a Boston Bookseller's Heroic Expedition That Saved the American Revolution
 
 
During the brutal winter of 1775-1776, an untested Boston bookseller named Henry Knox commandeered an oxen train hauling sixty tons of cannons and other artillery from Fort Ticonderoga near the Canadian border. He and his men journeyed some three hundred miles south and east over frozen, often-treacherous terrain to supply George Washington for his attack of British troops occupying Boston. The result was the British surrender of Boston and the first major victory for the Colonial Army. This is one of the great stories of the American Revolution, still little known by comparison with the more famous battles of Concord, Lexington, and Bunker Hill. An exciting tale of daunting odds and undaunted determination highlighting a pivotal episode that changed history.

VIRTUAL: The Irony of Festivus
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Zoom Webinar

Celebrated annually on December 23, Festivus was created by writers of the TV series Seinfeld. This holiday "for the rest of us" as symbolized by a silver pole devoid of decoration mocks Christmas and all the commercialism that accompanies it. The irony, of course, is that Festivus was invented to bring in (and it still makes) a massive profit at Christmastime.

Join Dr. Kelli Marshall to learn more about the origins of this silly holiday and its place in popular culture, Chicago's included. Clips from the Seinfeld episode featuring Festivus will be included in the lecture.

Armed with only a camera, a sense of humor and a host of frequent flyer miles, Mathew Duman embarked on a “grotesque safari”, traveling to 10 universities around the country to photograph the unique grotesques and gargoyles roosting on their academic buildings. Mathew found that this sculpture makes its home within a style of architecture known as Collegiate Gothic which was popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries. He has collected his findings in his book called: “The Grotesque 10: Amazing Architectural Sculpture from Ten American Colleges and Universities “ and presents a selection in this illustrated lecture, giving you a taste of the variety of ornament, history and humor these campuses have to offer.

    The grotesque 10 schools are:

    • Yale University
    • Trinity College in Hartford, Ct.

    • Bryn Mawr College
    • The City College of New York
    • Duke University
    • Northwestern University
    • Princeton University
    • The University of Chicago
    • The University of Pennsylvania
    • Washington University in St. Louis


 

 

Mathew Duman is a photographer, author and graphic designer who grew up in Bethany, Connecticut. He attended the gargoyle-free campus of Central Connecticut State University. but while studying abroad, he developed a fascination with the grotesque sculptures of the cathedrals of Britain. In addition to England, Matt has made photographic trips to Italy, Africa, Australia & New Zealand. As a personal project, he began exploring the variety of sculpture found on the buildings of Yale University & published a book called “An Education in the Grotesque”, containing his findings at Yale and has now turned his sights on the sculpture at other campuses around the US.
