Senior Center Book Discussion: The Last September

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Miwako Ogasawara will lead a discussion of The Last September by Elizabeth Bowen. The novel is a social satire of the dying Anglo-Irish Protestant Ascendency set around 1920, the period of violent uprisings of the ultimately successful Irish War of Independence against the ruling class which had dominated Ireland for about 300 years. It is also the story of a young woman coming of age against the ominous backdrop of brutal political violence by both the Irish Republican Army and the British security forces. In a discussion thread focusing on the 'luxurious beauty of the sentences and the flashes of unsuspecting dry humor,' Rohan Maitzen called it a 'combination of highly aestheticized language and social comedy, as if you are being batted around by [Virginia] Woolf on one side and [Jane] Austen on the other!'
 
This group meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month from September through May, excluding December. Call the Senior Center for details and to register at (203) 834-6240. Comstock Community Center, 180 School Road, Wilton.

Author Talk: Jeff Benedict - Tiger Woods

Monday, April 30, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

In 2009, Tiger Woods was the most famous athlete on the planet, a transcendent star of almost unfathomable fame and fortune living what appeared to be the perfect life—married to a Swedish beauty and the father of two young children. Winner of fourteen major golf championships and seventy-nine PGA Tour events, Woods was the first billion-dollar athlete, earning more than $100 million a year in endorsements. But it was all a carefully crafted illusion. As it turned out, Woods had been living a double life for years—one that exploded in the aftermath of a Thanksgiving night crash that exposed his serial infidelity and sent his personal and professional life off a cliff. 

 In Tiger Woods, Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian, the team behind the recent bestseller The System, dig deep behind the headlines to produce a richly reported answer to the question that has mystified millions of sports fans for nearly a decade: who is Tiger Woods?   

Benedict is also the author of Little Pink House, which has been made into a movie starring Oscar-nominated Catherine Keener and Jeanne Tripplehorn.  The film is in theaters in April and Benedict will be signing copies of both Tiger Woods and Little Pink House following his talk. Jeff Benedict is a bestselling author, a special features writer for Sports Illustrated, and a television and film producer. In addition to publishing fifteen non-fiction books, he has written for The New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and his stories have been the basis for segments on numerous TV networks. He is the founder and director of the Institute for Writing and Mass Media at Southern Virginia University.  Jeff has previously spoken at Wilton Library.   

Q&A will follow the talk.  No charge.  Registration highly recommended. Register online or call 203-762-6334.  Media Sponsor: Good Morning Wilton.

Dutch historian Johan Huizinga is generally considered to be one of the greatest historians of the 20th century. In the 1930s, he became famous as a cultural critic and fierce opponent of Nazi ideology; he was seen as a leading ‘public intellectual.’ During that same time period, Huizinga was a mentor to the Dutch Crown Princess, who later became Queen Juliana. He was taken hostage during WWII and spent several months in what was called ‘Hitler's Gentlemen's Prison.’ Huizinga died just before the end of WWII in 1945 when Laura was 3 years old. In her talk - with many photographs - Laura will include Huizinga's visit to the USA in the 1920's.  She will also sketch day-to-day existence during the war years, when her family was hiding refugees. After a 20-year career in a scholarly publishing company, Laura Conley is now a gallery guide in the Metropolitan Museum. She holds a Dutch law degree and an MBA. No charge. Registration recommended.

Our speakers are Dr. Purnaka L. de Silva, Ph.D., Director of the Institute for Strategic Studies and Democracy, a small think tank covering forced migration and human trafficking via Libya and the Central Mediterranean route as well as the terrorist threats posed by extremist groups such as ISIS; and, Azza Karam, Ph.D., Senior Advisor on Culture and Social Development at the U.N.

With facts and data from previously untapped sources as well as Rosner’s original research, this accessible analysis takes the reader behind the curtain at mortgage-finance behemoth Fannie Mae as well as the Federal Reserve, HUD, Congress, two presidents, and some of the biggest players on Wall Street. Reviewing the book, Stanford economics professor John Taylor wrote: 'In a series of clearly written narratives with many names, dates and figures, [the authors] show that government officials took actions that benefited well-connected individuals, who in turn helped the government officials. This mutual support system thwarted good economic policies and encouraged reckless ones. It thereby brought on the crisis, sending the economy into a tailspin.'
