"Tales of the Francois Vase," a dramatic reading with Julia Older

11/15/2012 7:00 pm

Thursday November 15th, 7 p.m.

A dramatic reading of the radio-play portion of the book, chosen by The Radio Works of NY (Best Independently Produced Program).

Julia Older's obsession with the famous Francois Vase led to both the radio play and the book-length poem. The dramatic 25-century journey of the vase winds through a subterranean inferno of greed, passion, and terror. Twice it was smashed into 600-plus pieces, came unglued, and was puzzled together, each time with a piece missing. A third time during the 1966 Florence Flood a scientist intentionally broke the vase. He restored it with the missing piece, and at last it was whole. Older's book offers readers the entire fascinating story. The poem is illustrated with the vase figures from The Iliad and the book includes a backstory with Older's original translations of her research.

 A CD of the radio-play production is included with the book, making this a delightful read-while-you-listen publication suitible for all age ranges - from teens to seniors! Poetry and plays are meant to be heard and performed!

Rebecca Makkai on Wednesday - Waldo, found! on Thursday. July 30th, 2014

 Wednesday, July 30, 7 PM
Rebecca Makkai joins us to present her new novel, The Hundred-Year House--a dazzlingly original, mordantly witty novel about the secrets of an old-money family and their turn-of-the-century estate, Laurelfield. We hope you'll remember Rebecca as the author of one of our best sellers over the last few years, The Borrower, in which Lucy Hull, a children’s librarian in Hannibal, Missouri, finds herself both kidnapper and kidnapped when her favorite patron, ten-year-old Ian Drake, runs away from home.
"Rarely is a first novel as smart and engaging and learned and funny and moving as The Borrower." —Richard Russo
