Virtual Book Talk on The Brothers Mankiewicz with Sydney Ladensohn Stern (Tue. 19 Jan, 2021 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm)

Virtual Book Talk The Brothers Mankiewicz with Sydney Ladensohn Stern
January 29th at 7:30PM

Award winning journalist and author, Sydney Ladensohn Stern, will discuss THE BROTHERS MANKIEWICZ: Hope, Heartbreak, and Hollywood Classics, her dual biography of Herman (1897-1953) and Joseph L. Mankiewicz (1909-1993) on January 29 at 7:30 PM on a Zoom presentation sponsored by the Scarsdale Library. In addition to her book, she will discuss David Fincher’s new biopic about Herman, Mank, which is available on Netflix. Herman co-authored Citizen Kane with Orson Welles and they shared its only Academy Award for best screenplay of 1941. Joseph earned the second pair of his four Oscars for writing and directing All About Eve, which also won Best Picture. The Brothers Mankiewicz examines the brilliantly successful but deeply dissatisfied brothers through their lives and loves, triumphs and disappointments. From the antics of the Marx Brothers through the star-crossed making of Cleopatra, their story is also the story of Hollywood, from silent movies to talkies to the studio system’s ultimate demise.

Turner Classic Movies (TCM) featured Sydney Stern for a Mankiewicz Family Weekend of Mankiewicz movies, and recently she has been a frequent source in the press for distinguishing fact from fiction in Mank. Her award-winning biography was excerpted in Commentary and glowing reviewed in the Wall St. Journal, New York Review of Books and many others. The freelance writer and former Scarsdale Inquirer editor and columnist (“Suburban Exposure”) is also the author of Gloria Steinem: Her Passions, Politics and Mystique, and Toyland: The High-Stakes Game of the Toy Industry. Bronx River Books is offering signed copies of her books for sale.

The Operatic Legacy of Giuseppe Verdi - a Free Zoom Presentation (Wed. 27 Jan, 2021 10:00 am - 11:00 am)

AugustVenturaThe Operatic Legacy of Giuseppe Verdi
A free Zoom presentation on Wednesday, January 27, 2021 at 10 a.m.

The Music Section of the Scarsdale Woman's Club has arranged for August Ventura to present a program titled: On Golden Wings: Exploring Verdi’s Enduring Legacy. He will explore such questions as: Is traditional opera still meaningful? Does opera have the power to be an agent for social and/or political change? Mr. Ventura's fascinating, multi-media presentation will answer both questions with a resounding, undeniable "yes."

The presentation on Verdi’s enduring legacy will explore how opera was a unifying force in creating a national identity for Italy while under Austrian domination. Verdi -- both the artist and the humanitarian -- was an indispensable force in Italy’s Risorgimento. Filmed content will include Visconti’s Senso, RAI-TV’s La vita di Verdi, a US Government newsreel on Toscanini, and August Ventura's own performance/interview footage.

August Ventura is an architect, author, and filmmaker who explores the world of traditional opera in articles, lectures, and through the medium of documentary film. An ardent devotee of the life and works of Giuseppe Verdi, Ventura has focused on the composers legacy.

Ventura's film screening of "27" and the round-table discussion was the inaugural event at the five-day Bicentennial Conference "Verdi's Third Century" at New York University Casa Italiana.

The program is offered free of charge to club members and is open to the public.
Please sign on to the program at 9:45 a.m.

Books You May Have Missed Book Club: Girl Waits With Gun. With Special Guest : Author Amy Stewart (Wed. 27 Jan, 2021 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm)

Join Katie Karkheck from the Scarsdale Library for a new Book Club, "Books You May Have Missed". The first title is Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart.

January 27th at 7:00PM

Constance Kopp doesn’t quite fit the mold. She towers over most men, has no interest in marriage or domestic affairs, and has been isolated from the world since a family secret sent her and her sisters into hiding fifteen years ago. One day a belligerent and powerful silk factory owner runs down their buggy, and a dispute over damages turns into a war of bricks, bullets, and threats as he unleashes his gang on their family farm. When the sheriff enlists her help in convicting the men, Constance is forced to confront her past and defend her family — and she does it in a way that few women of 1914 would have dared.
