Thursday, October 4
7:00-9:00pm

In The Life of Objects (Alfred A. Knopf) the author of such acclaimed works as The Big Girls, In the Cut, and My Old Sweetheart brings us the tragic, suspenseful tale of a glamorous, courageous and seductive bevy of art collectors in the Germany of World War II, and the young Irish Protestant lace-maker who comes to serve them.  Advance word has proclaimed it Moore’s best book yet, and Joan Didion calls it  “exhilarating…truly exciting, new, everything good…every word.”

“Imagine Downton Abbey crossed with In the Garden of the Beasts as fashioned by a literary master at the peak of her powers.”  KURT ANDERSEN

 True Delta and “Mississippi Juke Joint”

Tickets are now on sale for True Delta, a Mississippi Blues documentary directed by Daniel Cowen ’11 (Hunter) and Macaulay Professor Lee Quinby. This project is a great example of faculty and student collaboration. Mac Warren ’12 (City College) designed the fonts and posters and  Macaulay research assistants Alannah Feyrenbach ’15 (Brooklyn) and Daniel Scarpati ’15 (Brooklyn) are working on a forthcoming documentary related to this one. The screening is at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. To purchase tickets online, visit the Film Society’s tickets webpage.

Immediately following True Delta, you’re invited to a live “Mississippi Juke Joint” back at Macaulay (35 W67)—a special performance by one of the performers featured in the film—Bill “Howl-N-Madd” Perry and his band.  This will take place in the Commons and Cabaret Spaces.

R.L. Stine
Red Rain
In Red Rain, Stine uses his unerring knack for
creating terror to tap into some very grownup fears.
For the millions of readers who grew up on
Goosebumps, and for every fan of deviously inventive
horror, this is a must-read from a beloved master
of the genre.
