J. David Markham lecture: “Napoleon”

August 13, 2015 by Beth Colt

Napoleon.  The name has conjured up images for two centuries. The English viewed him as the Antichrist and the French experienced glory they had never known before. 2015 is the 200thanniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, and August 15 is the 246th anniversary of his birth. J. DavidMarkham, President of the International Napoleonic Society, will discuss the life of the man who most historians agree was one of the most compelling and gifted military leaders of all time.  He was a political leader whose reign brought an end to the French Revolution and began a series of wars that changed the dynamics of European culture.  His life remains as compelling today as it was 200 years ago.

Barney Frank: “Frank: A Life in Politics”

July 29, 2015 by Beth Colt

Frank: A Life in Politics from the Great Society to Same-Sex Marriage is one man’s account of the country’s transformation–and the tale of a truly momentous career. Many Americans recall Frank’s lacerating wit, whether it was directed at the Clinton impeachment or the pro-life movement. But the contours of his private and public lives are less well-known. For more than four decades, he was at the center of the struggle for personal freedom and economic fairness. From the battle over AIDS funding in the 1980s to the debates over “big government” during the Clinton years to the 2008 financial crisis, the congressman from Massachusetts played a key role. In 2010, he coauthored the most far-reaching and controversial Wall Street reform bill since the era of the Great Depression, and helped bring about the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
In this feisty and often moving memoir, Frank candidly discusses the satisfactions, fears, and grudges that come with elected office. He recalls the emotional toll of living in the closet and how his public crusade against homophobia conflicted with his private accommodation of it. He discusses his painful quarrels with allies; his friendships with public figures, from Tip O’Neill to Sonny Bono; and how he found love with his husband, Jim Ready, becoming the first sitting member of Congress to enter a same-sex marriage. He also demonstrates how he used his rhetorical skills to expose his opponents’ hypocrisies and delusions. Through it all, he expertly analyzes the gifts a successful politician must bring to the job, and how even Congress can be made to work.

Alan Driscoll: “War Dogs”

July 22, 2015 by Beth Colt

War Dogs have been a part of this country’s military since the early days of World War II.  Unfortunately, the general public knows very little about either their history or the sacrifices and contributions they have made on behalf of the United States.  War Dogs have been responsible for saving thousands of soldier’s lives and the protection of millions of dollars of critical equipment.  In many cases the deeds of these K9 partners are only remembered by their handlers and will, in most cases, be lost to future history.

Nancy Witter: Hot Flash Laughs

July 21, 2015 by Beth Colt

Live from New York!  Comedienne Nancy Witter presents “Hot Flash Laughs” – one night only.  It’s stand up for Ladies Night!

About Nancy:  I grew up in a very large Irish “Cathaholic” family.  It gave me all the comedic material I needed to sustain me throughout my comedy career. It helped me win three New York City MAC Awards for “Outstanding Female Comedian” and a MAC Award for my one woman show “Dignity Check… Please”.  One of my big breaks was being one of five finalist on Nick at Nite’s “Search for the Funniest Mom in America” in 2005.  Soon after, I joined two other finalists and for five years we toured in sold out theaters across the country in the hit comedy show “Mama’s Night Out”.   “The New York Times” has described me as having “a razor sharp wit”  and Backstage Magazine named me to their list of “Comedy Best Bets”.
