The Lives They Lived: "Messages from My Father"

Tuesday, January 20, 2015 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Calvin Trillin's fond, wry, and affecting memoir of his father, Abe, looks at a stubborn man who was given to swearing off things -- coffee, tobacco, alcohol, all neckties that were not yellow in color. Although Abe Trillin had a strong vision of the sort of person he wanted his son to be, his explicit advice about how to behave didn't go beyond an almost lackadaisical, "You might as well be a mensch." Somehow, though, Abe's messages got through clearly. Admirers of Calvin Trillin's unerring sense of the American character will be entertained and touched by this quietly powerful memoir.

The Lives They Lived: "Just Kids"

Tuesday, March 17, 2015 - 7:30pm to 8:30pm

Patti Smith's "Just Kids" takes us back to New York City and the Chelsea Hotel during the late sixties and seventies. Smith recounts her relationship with Robert Mapplethorpe and their initiation into the New York art scene and all that it entailed during those tumultuous years. Join us as we discuss this National Book Award-winner that Joan Didion referred to as "so honest and pure as to count as a true rapture." Books are available one month before the discussion at Maze Branch.
