This class explores contemporary memoirs by writers from diverse social backgrounds.  How do authors translate lived experiences of family life, travel, immigration, work, artistic expression, and politics into compelling literary works?  How do they chronicle the creation of complex identities shaped by race, class, gender identity, geography, and religion?  Analyzing both the achievements and the limitations of the memoir genre, we will discuss how authors map the emotional landscape of private life while addressing broader themes in history, politics, and culture.  Come share your ideas with other passionate readers in a stimulating yet relaxed environment.  Please read Born A Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah before our first class meeting.  Other assigned books include: The Skin Above My Knee by Marcia Butler, Rebel Mother: My Childhood Chasing the Revolution by Peter Andreas, and In the Darkroom by Susan Faludi.

Nicknamed Il Divino (the divine one) by his contemporaries on account of his mastery of drawing design, sculpture, painting, and architecture, Michelangelo is the subject of an expansive exhibit at the Met, running from November 13, 2017 to February 12, 2018. His powerful imagery and dazzling technical virtuosity transported viewers and imbued all of his works with a staggering force that continues to enthrall us today.  This exhibition will present a stunning range and number of works by the artist: approximately 150 of his drawings, three of his marble sculptures, an early painting, and a wood architectural model along with a substantial body of complementary works by other artists for comparison and context.  Please note: the Met will not be allowing any guided tours of this exhibit.  

Schedule : Weekly - Wed 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM; starting 11/29/2017, ending 11/29/2017
