7:00pm WRDSMTH: The Holden Age Of Hollywood Strand Books

Bateman came to Hollywood to settle a score, but amidst the sunny and 75, his plans went astray. Everything changed the day he drank in the intoxicating legend of Meyer Holden, the greatest screenwriter Hollywood has ever known, the one who pulled a Salinger and walked away. Holden now tacks pseudonyms onto his works and buries them in the bottomless sea of spec that is Hollywood’s development process. They’re out there for anyone to find—but at what cost? In his quest, Bateman severs all ties and sinks into a maddening world of bad writing and flawed screenplays. Paranoid and obsessive, the belligerent savant encounters an eccentric cast of characters—each with an agenda—in his search for the one writer in Hollywood who does not want to be found.

7:00pm Glynnis Macnicol + Aminatou Sow Strand Books

If the story doesn't end with marriage or a child, what then? This question plagued Glynnis MacNicol on the eve of her 40th birthday. Despite a successful career as a writer, and an exciting life in New York City, Glynnis was constantly reminded she had neither of the things the world expected of a woman her age: a partner or a baby. She knew she was supposed to feel bad about this. After all, single women and those without children are often seen as objects of pity, relegated to the sidelines, or indulgent spoiled creatures who think only of themselves.

Intimate and timely, No One Tells You This is a fearless reckoning with modern womanhood and an exhilarating adventure that will resonate with anyone determined to live by their own rules.

Join us as author Glynnis sits down with businesswoman Aminatou Sow!

6:00pm Is the Human Rights Movement in Crisis? Human Rights Watch

This event will be live streamed on HRW's Facebook page and here: https://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/events/human-rights-movement-crisis

Yale historian and law professor Samuel Moyn stoked an ongoing debate about the state of the human rights movement this spring with his new book, Not Enough: Human Rights in an Unequal World. Moyn’s thesis: The modern human rights movement has seriously damaged its own effectiveness by failing to address growing economic inequality over the past four decades.

Aryeh Neier, president emeritus of the Open Society Foundations and a former executive director of Human Rights Watch, disagrees. He argues that inherently complex decisions around how society allocates resources require the democratic process. In his view, social justice lies fundamentally outside the human rights framework and is badly served by appealing to it.

Can human rights flourish in conditions of increasing economic disenfranchisement, and is the human rights movement equipped with the proper tools to address structural inequality? In this live-streamed event, Samuel Moyn and Aryeh Neier will tackle these thorny questions and more in what promises to be a powerful discussion about the past and future direction of the human rights movement.

6:30pm Under the Influence of the Maysles Brothers Museum of the City of New York

It has become the stuff of retro consumerism but in the mid-'60s New York City was the cultural capital of the United States -- and David and Albert Maysles were among its chief chroniclers. Featuring shorts including a radical Yoko Ono performance at Carnegie Hall, a portrait of an ascendant IBM, a drop-in visit with Truman Capote at his Long Island retreat, and an indelible encounter with Marlon Brando in a Midtown hotel room. These films capture both the official history and something else, the unguarded moments and unscripted gestures that are the true warp and woof of a historical scene.

7:00pm Astrology and Divination Across Cultures Rubin Museum

The common principle among astrology and divination is time: astrology is the art and science of integrating our past, present, and future, while divination techniques can help us make better decisions about what lies ahead. When we understand symbols and use practices and rituals, such as mandalas and meditation, we can expand our consciousness and increase clarity around our aspirations.

Explore astrology and divination across cultures with astrologer and author A.T. Mann. In this talk, which opens a summer series on astrology, A.T. Mann will guide us in such mantic arts as tarot, the I Ching, and more. He will perform an onstage tarot reading with a volunteer from the audience using his Mandala Astrological Tarot deck, and introduce us to a dynamic new approach called Life Time Astrology, which visualizes connections between the solar system and our DNA.

The program will be followed by a book signing with A.T. Mann.

9:30pm Cabaret Cinema: Rope Rubin Museum

Constance Collier plays Mrs. Atwater, a slightly absentminded guest at dinner—and at the scene of a crime. An amateur astrologer, she divines the star sign of one of the hosts, Farley Granger, who is also one of the murderers:

You were born on the 14th of July. You’re Cancer, the crab. You’re a moon child. May I see your hand? Good fingers, strong, artistic. These hands will bring you great fame…

Hitchcock’s filmmaking techniques—this was his first film in color, shot in just ten takes to make to look like one—and the movie’s gay subtext make Rope one of the most pioneering films to come out of Hollywood in the 1940s. The identity of the murderers is never in doubt, but whether they will get away with it remains a mystery to the end.

How can a nearly extinct astrological tool influence our lives today? Aztec, Mayan, and other Mesoamerican astrologies center heavily around their own uniquely complex calendar systems.

Mann for a conversation on how the ancient and contemporary practices of Aztec, Mayan, and Mesoamerican astrology can help us to navigate the 2,000-year-long Aquarian age we currently find ourselves in.

7:00pm Robin Diangelo, Erin Trent Johnson and Aaron Morrison Strand Books

In this groundbreaking and timely book, antiracist educator Robin DiAngelo deftly illuminates the phenomenon of "white fragility". Referring to the defensive moves that white people make when challenged racially, white fragility is characterized by emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and by behaviors including argumentation and silence. These behaviors, in turn, function to reinstate white racial equilibrium and prevent any meaningful cross-racial dialogue. In this in-depth exploration, DiAngelo explores how white fragility develops, how it protects racial inequality, and what we can do to engage more constructively.

Join us in the Rare Book Room as Robin DiAngelo sits down with Senior Writer from Mic, Aaron Morrison, and Community Equity Partner's CEO Erin Trent Johnson to talk about her book.

7:00pm Ben Reiter: Astroball Strand Books

When Sports Illustrated writer Ben Reiter declared, on the cover of the magazine in 2014, that the Houston Astros would win the World Series in 2017, people thought he was crazy. The team, which had just finished up a three-year losing streak of terrible performances--the worst the sport had seen since the early 1960s--were widely considered underdogs, and the cover story, combined with the specificity of Reiter's claim, met instant and nearly universal derision. But three years later, the critics were proved improbably, astonishingly wrong. How had Reiter predicted it so accurately? And, more important, how had the Astros pulled off the impossible?

Reiter offers a deep-dive first look into an analytics system that will soon become an industry standard: an ingenious blend of advanced statistical models (a descendant of the type famously created by Billy Beane in Moneyball) with quantified human evaluation and experience. Sitting at the nexus of sports, business, and ideas, ASTROBALL takes readers into the world of the Astros with unprecedented access, offering an inside look at a new way to think about the sport, from the mathematical to the human.

Join us as Ben talks about his book and the wonderful history of baseball.

7:00pm Ibtihaj Muhammad: Proud Strand Books

From young outsider to national hero, a timeless, uniquely American tale of hard work, determination, and resilience.

Growing up in New Jersey as the only African American Muslim in hijab in town, at school, and on the playing fields, Ibtihaj Muhammad always had to find her own way. When she discovered fencing, a sport traditionally reserved for the wealthy and white, once again she had to defy expectations and make a place for herself in a sport she grew to love. Even though Ibtihaj would start fencing later than most, at 13 years old her talent was undeniable. From winning state championships with her high school team to three-time All-America selections at Duke University, Ibtihaj was poised for success, but the fencing community wasn’t ready to welcome her with open arms.

Ibtihaj Muhammad’s path to Olympic greatness has been marked with opposition and near-debilitating challenges because of her race, religion, and gender. As the only woman of color and the only religious minority on the U.S. women’s saber team, once again Ibtihaj had to push past stereotypes, misconceptions, and negativity to find her own path to success and Olympic glory.

7:00pm Michael Arceneaux: I Can't Date Jesus Strand Books

It’s no question that equality for LGBTQ people has come a long way, but voices of persons of color within the community continue to remain stifled to this day. With distinctive wit and candor, I Can’t Date Jesus is Michael Arceneaux’s impassioned look at minority life in today’s America, challenging every bigoted and ignorant argument along his journey into self-acceptance, in a world that seeks to reject him.

Michael writes with an engaging tone about coming out to his mother; growing up in Houston, Texas; being approached for the priesthood; his obstacles in embracing close and intimate encounters; and the persistent challenges of young people who feel marginalized and denied the chance to pursue their dreams.

I Can’t Date Jesus is a timely collection of essays that tell—without apologies—what it’s like to be outspoken and brave in a divisive world.

Join us as Michael sits down with Doreen St. Felix from The New Yorker to share his story.

7:00pm A Dog Named Ego Strand Books

“Whenever I climb, I am followed by a dog named ego.” - Frederich Nietzsche

What is ego? Can we ask who, exactly, is ego? Is it possible for us to form a coherent idea of where ego might be? And what about why it exists? Can we even begin to say why we all are afflicted with this unasked for interior companion?

In this Olio we explore these questions and examine the possible solutions to the problems associated with ego as well as various strategies to accept, dissolve and integrate the ego, as presented by world wisdom traditions, mythologies and religious practice.

9:30pm Cabaret Cinema: The Magus Rubin Museum

Woody Allen once quipped, “If I had to live my life again, I’d do everything the same, except that I wouldn’t see The Magus.” Yet this intriguing and ambitious “failure” is worth watching—for Anthony Quinn’s dynamically convincing performance as the manipulative puppet master Conchis; for the array of pantheistic, Jungian archetypes popping up all over the beautifully photographed Greek island landscape; and of course for the outrageously outsize cards of the Tarot deck that Conchis produces at dinner for the eternally bemused Nicholas, played by Michael Caine. It’s based on the acclaimed 1965 novel by British author John Fowles.
