Expanding on Springer’s 2020 TEDx presentation, “How to Become a True Agent of Change,” co-presented with women-in-film activist Naomi McDougall Jones, Springer and Muñoz will discuss the ways popular media trains our brains to think about minorities, how this conditioning affects our perceptions and treatment of each other, and what it will take to change that.

“Cage Shuffle” by Paul Lazar @ The Community Library
6:00 pm
“Cage Shuffle” is a 50-minute dance/theater solo by Paul Lazar, who speaks a series of one-minute stories by John Cage from his 1963 score “Indeterminacy,” while simultaneously performing a complex choreographic score by Annie-B Parson, choreographer of David Byrne’s “American Utopia” on Broadway. The stories are spoken in random order with no predetermined relationship to the dancing, yet chance serves up its inevitable and uncanny connection between text and movement. Cage’s humor, intellect and iconoclasm find ideal expression in this new work which adds dance to Cage’s original performance instructions: “Read stories aloud, paced so that each story takes one minute, using chance procedures or not.” This performance will be held outdoors on the Library’s Donaldson Robb Family Green. Bring a blanket or chair and join us! “One of my favorite pieces ever. The Cage stories are good to begin with, amusing in a zen kind of way, but when further randomized and amplified with the dance, and with Paul’s voice – well, it becomes no longer a rarified Cage piece but is transformed into something accessible to everyone.” – David Byrne Paul Lazar is a founding member, along with Annie-B Parson, of Big Dance Theater. He has directed, co-directed, ...

“Beyond: How Humankind Thinks About Heaven” with Catherine Wolff @ The Community Library
7:00 pm
A free outdoor lecture presented by The Community Library and the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference. The event will be outdoors on the Library’s Donaldson Robb Family Green. Attendees are invited to bring their own low-back chairs or blankets, spread out on the lawn, and enjoy the evening. What do we think of when we think about heaven? What might it look like? Who or what might be there? Since humans began to huddle together for protection thousands of years ago, these questions have been part of how civilizations and cultures define heaven, the good place beyond this one. From Christianity to Islam to Hinduism and beyond, from the brush of Michelangelo to the pen of Dante, people across millennia have tried to explain and describe heaven in ways that are distinctive and analogous, unique and universal. In this engrossing cultural history of heaven, Catherine Wolff delves into how people and cultures have defined heaven over the centuries. She describes how different faiths and religions have framed it, how the sense of heaven has evolved, and how nonreligious influences have affected it, from the Enlightenment to the increasingly nonreligious views of heaven today. Wolff looks deep into the accounts of heaven ...

“The Poetry of Family Photos” A Writing Workshop with Richard Blanco @ The Community Library
10:00 am
This two-hour workshop, led by award-winning poet Richard Blanco, will take a deep dive into the golden rule of writing poetry—“show don’t tell”—by contemplating the rich sensory details of family photographs. We’ll tap into their powerful stories by practicing “fever writing” or “automatic writing,” which we will share in class as jumping-off points for generating new poems. Each participant will be asked bring two or three family photos (print preferred) that hold some personal mystique, imaginative interest, and emotional complexity. Open to writers of all levels and ages, as well as poetry enthusiasts. TO REGISTER: Email Martha Williams, programs and education manager, at [email protected] Richard Blanco is an award-winning poet and was The Community Library’s 2020 Hemingway Distinguished Lecturer. Blanco was the fifth presidential inaugural poet in U.S. history—at the time the youngest, first Latino, immigrant, and gay person to serve in such a role. Born in Madrid to Cuban exile parents and raised in Miami, the negotiation of cultural identity and place characterize his body of work. He is the author of the poetry collections Looking for the Gulf Motel, Directions to the Beach of the Dead, and City of a Hundred Fires; the poetry chapbooks Matters of the ...

Join acclaimed historian Lee Pollock as he explores the singular relationship between Winston Churchill and the British crown and sheds new light on one of history’s most enduring institutions.
