Upcoming Events

Tovah Feldshuh • LilyvillE: A Memoir

Thursday, APRIL 15 • 8:00pm

Zoom Webinar + Author talk + Q & A

A Very Special Evening with Tovah Feldshuh

Iconic Broadway performer and four-time Tony, two-time Emmy nominee Tovah Feldshuh presents Lilyville, a heartwarming and hilarious memoir exploring the mother-daughter relationship that challenged shifting socio-cultural expectations of women and shaped a magnificent career.

In Lilyville: Mother, Daughter, and Other Roles I’ve Played, Tovah Feldshuh reflects on her extraordinary life in the best way she knows how: as a play. Tovah immerses readers in a journey through the acts and scenes of her personal and professional life, from her tomboy childhood in the refined community of Scarsdale, New York, to becoming Broadway royalty alongside Christopher Plummer and Barbra Streisand—all held together by the twisting thread of her often-complicated relationship with Lily.

Amy Klobuchar • Antitrust

Wednesday, may 19 • 8:00pm

Zoom Webinar + Author talk + Q & A

An important, urgently needed book from the much-admired senior senator from Minnesota, and former candidate for president of the United States–a fascinating exploration of antitrust in America and the way forward to protect all Americans from the dangers of curtailed competition, and from vast information gathering, through monopolies.

From Standard Oil, and the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, to the Progressive Era’s trust-busters, Amy Klobuchar, in this large, compelling history, writes of the fight against monopolies in America.

She writes of the breakup of Ma Bell, the pricing monopoly of Big Pharma, and the future of the giant tech companies (Facebook, Amazon, Google).
