David Brooks On Character
at Station Branch
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

View and listen to a 92nd Street Y live web simulcast when New York Times columnist David Brooks engages in an in-depth discussion about what constitutes character as explored in his new book, The Road to Character (Random House - on sale April 14, 2015).

Some people seem to possess inner lives that are more substantive than the rest of ours. How do they do it? Depth, argues Brooks, is the core of our being and something we cultivate over time; it’s engraved by thought and action; it’s built through the commitments we make—to a nation, a faith, a calling or loved ones—and the sacrifices we endure because of those commitments.

Live from NY's 92nd Street Y™, simultaneously broadcasts 92Y's renowned educational and cultural programming to community organizations across America, now in its thirteenth year.

Please note: We will email your questions to Mr. Brooks prior to and up to the first 30 minutes of the webcast.

Now celebrating its 140th Anniversary, 92nd Street Y is a world-class, nonprofit cultural and community center that fosters the mental, physical and spiritual health of people throughout their lives, offering: wide-ranging conversations with the world’s best minds; an outstanding range of programming in the performing, visual and literary arts; fitness and sports programs; and activities for children and families. 92Y is reimagining what it means to be a community center in the digital age, transforming the way people share ideas and translate them into action both locally and around the world. More than 300,000 people visit 92Y annually; millions more participate in 92Y’s digital and online initiatives. A proudly Jewish organization since its founding in 1874, 92Y embraces its Jewish heritage and welcomes people of all backgrounds and perspectives. For more information, visit www.92Y.org.

The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd  The No. 1 New York Times bestseller.

From the celebrated author of the international bestseller The Secret Life of Bees comes an extraordinary novel about two exceptional women. Inspired by real events, and set in the American Deep South in the nineteenth century, THE INVENTION OF WINGS evokes a world of shocking contrasts, of beauty and ugliness, of righteous people living daily with cruelty they fail to recognise; and celebrates the power of friendship and sisterhood against all the odds.

Bernard Whalen's NYPD's First Fifty Years

The NYPD’s First Fifty Years: Politicians, Police Commissioners, and Patrolmen by Bernard Whalen and Jon Whalen, Foreword by William J. Bratton

Meet Bernard Whalen, a long-serving NYPD lieutenant, when he discusses The NYPD’s First Fifty Years, a history of New York’s finest. In his book, Bernard and his father, Jon, consider the men and women who have contributed to the department’s past, both positively and less so. Starting with the official formation of the NYPD in 1898, they examine the commissioners, politicians and patrolmen who during the next fifty years left a lasting mark on history and on one another. In the process, they also explore the backroom dealings, the hidden history, and the relationships that set the scene for the modern NYPD that so proudly serves the city today.

Bernard Whalen has been a member of the New York Police Department since July 1981. He has received sixteen departmental recognitions, including two commendations. He is a member of the NYPD Honor Legion.

Books will be available for purchase at the event.

Propelled by a shared passion for classical chamber music and profound respect for the works written by the composers of our time, the New Asia Chamber Music Society was founded in 2010 by an idealistic group of young Asian-American virtuosi, graduated from America’s most prestigious music schools, including The Juilliard School and the Curtis Institute. Based in New York City, NACMS is committed to bringing audiences exceptional performances of the finest works of chamber music, drawn from the canon of western music as well as contemporary Asian culture. This unusual young collective also seeks to reach out to its technologically-wired peers around the world, through the creation of innovative new work in future partnership with other arts organizations. The New Asia Chamber Music Society gave their sold-out inaugural performance at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall in 2011, and has since then performed throughout New York City at venues including Queens Museum, Flushing Town Hall, Sheraton Hotel, Taiwan Center, Chelsea Museum, and Taipei Culture and Economic Center of New York.

Plagued by the failed writing career of his father, Andrew hungers day and night to become one of the greats.

Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Marilyn Carminio will examine, through discussion and film clips, the many phases of the life of the fabulous Audrey Hepburn, including her continuing humanitarian legacy. Young Audrey experienced the devastation of war first hand as a child in occupied Holland during WWII. Although the war dashed her ambition to become a ballerina, she would eventually come to be one of the most admired screen actresses of all time. More than just a legendary figure of beauty, grace and charm, Audrey worked tirelessly as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador after retiring from the screen.

Marilyn Carminio began her career as a NYC school teacher and went on to hold various positions at women’s magazines such as Cosmopolitan, where she worked for Helen Gurley Brown; Elle and New Woman.

Andrew Sparberg
From a Nickel to a Token
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

In this fascinating micro-history of New York’s transit system, Andrew Sparberg examines twenty specific events between 1940 and 1968, book ended by subway unification and the MTA’s creation. From a Nickel to a Token depicts a potpourri of well-remembered, partially forgotten, and totally obscure happenings drawn from the historical tapestry of New York mass transit. Sparberg captures five boroughs of grit, chaos, and emotion grappling with a massive and unwieldy transit system.

Andrew J. Sparberg has spent forty years in the transportation field, starting at Tri-State Regional Planning Commission, and then for twenty-five years at the Long Island Railroad. Since retiring from the LIRR he has worked on transportation’s academic side, most recently at St. John’s University and the City University of New York. He was technical editor of Long Island Rail Road, a 2007 history by author Stan Fischler. For more than twenty years, Mr. Sparberg has conducted tours as a volunteer for the New York Transit Museum.

Books will be available for purchase at the event.

Join us when Temple Beth-El of Great Neck, 5 Old Mill Road, 11023 hosts

a Slide Presentation/Talk and Book Signing with Ronald Marzlock

The New York World’s Fairs: 1939 and 1964 

More people attended each of the two New York World’s Fairs than attended Woodstock, and the fairs created lasting memories for generations of New Yorkers. Noted historian Ronald Marzlock, author of The New York World’s Fairs: 1939, 1964, along with commentary and personal anecdotes, presents an exciting PowerPoint presentation of 200 images of the fairs, many taken behind the scenes or never before seen. Take a trip down memory lane and learn things about the fairs that you never knew.

Ron Marzlock has a weekly local history column, “I Have Often Walked” in the Queens Chronicle for over 17 years. He launched Icon Archives in 1996, his library of local New York history images which have appeared in television documentaries, magazines, and books.

Books will be available for purchase at the event.

ST. VINCENT

2014, 103 minutes, PG-13

Stars: Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts, Chris O'Dowd, Terrence Howard, Jaeden Lieberher

Maggie, a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her twelve-year-old son, Oliver. Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent, a retired curmudgeon with a desire for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka, Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine: race track, strip club, and a dive bar.

In The Story of Lucy Gault, family members leading lives of privilege in early 1920's Ireland are threatened by arson.  Nine-year-old Lucy's parents want to move to England, her mother's home, but Lucy cannot bear the thought of leaving Lahardane, their country house, with its beautiful land and nearby beach, and a dog she has befriended.  On the day before the family is supposed to leave for England, Lucy runs away, hoping her desperate act will force her parents to stay.  Instead, Lucy sets off a series of tragic misunderstandings that affect everyone in Lahardane, and the failed arsonists, for the rest of their lives.  In this dazzling, thoughtful and touching story of love, guilt and forgiveness, William Trevor has written yet another story worthy of the likes of Thomas Hardy.  The Story of Lucy Gault stands with some of the best literature written in the English language.

Barry Libin's The Mystery of the Milton Manuscript
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

In this work of historical fiction, Barry Libin uncovers the meaning of John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Some believe that Milton himself wrote a lost manuscript explaining the true meaning of his poem. Was there really such a manuscript? If so, why has it remained concealed for so many years? This novel deals with the search for Milton’s true spiritual beliefs. Brimming with intrigue, mystery, and suspense, this book is a tale of history, literature, forgery, and religious conspiracy that exposes the enigma of John Milton’s epic poem.

Barry Libin is an author, playwright, composer and lyricist, as well as a medical researcher. This is his first novel.

Books will be available for purchase at the event.

Four Perfect Pebbles
Author Talk/Book Signing
Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

A message of Perseverance, Determination, Faith and Hope

Temple Beth-El of Great Neck hosts Marion Blumenthal Lazan, Holocaust Survivor

Marion will discuss her award-winning memoir, Four Perfect Pebbles: A Holocaust Story co-authored by Lila Perl

Marion’s is a moving first-hand account of the Blumenthal family's life in Germany from the events preceding Kristallnacht to imprisonment in concentration camps to liberation in April of 1945. Mrs. Lazan was 11 years old when the family finally gained its freedom.

Marion Blumenthal Lazan’s presentation goes beyond the facts. It stresses the importance of positive thinking to overcome adversity. It asks the audience to be tolerant of others and not stereotype individuals based on religious belief, color, race or national origin. She warns her listeners to be true to themselves and not blindly follow-the-leader. Today’s generation is the last generation to hear a first-hand account.

Marion Blumenthal Lazan is an inspirational speaker whose unforgettable memoir recalls the devastating years that shaped her childhood. She has been speaking out publicly about the Holocaust since 1979 at schools, organizations and other venues in the United States and all over the world. Many schools are using Marion's memoir in the study of the Holocaust.

Marion will sign copies of her book, which will be available for purchase.
