    Reading Henry James
    with James Kraft

    Saturdays, November 7, 2020- February 27, 2021
    3:00 pm - 4:30 pm  

    Online via Zoom: registration required

    Longtime OLLI instructor James Kraft will lead a new monthly course entitled "Reading Henry James," starting on Saturday, November 7th at 3pm, and continuing monthly on Saturdays at 3pm through February 27.


    Registration is $50 for OLLI at BCC members, and $65 for non-members.  Click here to register. 

    Considered one of the greatest writers in English, Henry James is known for his psychological insight into his characters, and for his provocative prose.  The prose is considered to have three phases: early narratives that are accessible portraits of his time; more challenging narratives and prose called the middle periods; the late and complex style that embodies his most challenging perceptions.  The discussion will examine the three phases in the reading of James's major novels and tales.

    Reading Schedule:

    • Saturday 11/7/20: The Europeans (1878) & Daisy Miller (1878)

      • Note-- there are excellent film adaptations of both:  "The Europeans" (1979) directed by Merchant and Ivory and starring Lee Remick; "Daisy Miller" (1974) directed by Peter Bogdanovich and starring Cybill Shepherd
        • Saturday 12/5/20: The Portrait of a Lady (1880)

        This was adapted into a 1998 film directed by Jane Campion and starring Nicole Kidman, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Park, Christian Bale, John Gielgud and many others

        Please read again any work that you have already read.  A second reading of James is a different and exciting experience.  NOTE: Henry James is not a quick read; we recommend starting the readings well in advance of the discussion session.

        Reading Henry James is led by longtime OLLI literature instructor James Kraft, who attended Princeton, King’s College, Cambridge University, and Fordham.  He has a doctorate in literature and has taught at the University of Virginia, Université Laval in Quebec City, and Wesleyan in Connecticut.  He was assistant director of the Whitney Museum for eight years, and now teaches at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Berkshire Community College and at the New York Society Library in New York City.

        In addition to the above films that supplement the readings, there are several other film adaptations of Henry James--

        • "The Innocents" (1961) based on "The Turn of the Screw"-- directed by Jack Clayton and starring Deborah Kerr, Michael Redgrave and Megs Jenkins
        • "The Heiress" (1949) based on "Washington Square"-- directed by William Wyler and starring Olivia de Havilland, Montgomery Clift and Ralph Richardson
        • "What Maisey Knew" (2012)-- directed by Scott McGehee and David Siegel, and starring Julianne Moore, Alexander Skardsgard, Onata Aprile and more
        • "The Wings of the Dove" (1997)-- directed by Iain Softley and starring Helena Bonham Carter, Linus Roache and Alison Elliot
        • "The Golden Bowl" (2000)-- directed by James Ivory and starring Kate Beckinsale, Nick Nolte, Anjelica Huston, Uma Thurman and more

        Inspiring Forgiveness

        A Conversation with Author Barbara Bonner

        Monday, December 7, 7pm EST

        Free & online! Registration required ~ click here to register.

        Just in time for the holidays, and after a contentious national election, author Barbara Bonner will discuss and read from her latest book, Inspiring Forgiveness: Poems, Quotations and True Stories to Help with Forgiving Yourself and Others. This encouraging guide—her contribution to our sometimes angry and grudge-holding world—is interactive, with participants encouraged to ask questions of Barbara during the program.

        Inspiring Forgiveness features twelve true stories of people—from the Dalai Lama and the late Congressman John Lewis to writers Margaret Atwood and Mary Oliver and more—who have endured great pain at the hands of others and have found a way to open themselves to forgiveness in its many forms. Each story is followed by extraordinary poems that speak to forgiveness as well as a collection of over 100 inspiring quotations.

        “Barbara Bonner has created a gem in her collection of poetry, quotes, and stories all meant to inspire us on our path towards understanding and achieving forgiveness.”
        ~Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness

        “I knew that this book would be inspiring because all of Barbara Bonner’s books are. But I had no idea that it would take us down into the gnarly details of the process of forgiveness. Let’s face it; forgiveness is the hardest thing. And Bonner helps us understand how to actually DO it in even the most difficult of circumstances. She does not shrink from the tough stuff. I adore this book, and will, quite simply, spend the rest of my life digesting its wisdom.”
        ~Stephen Cope, author of The Great Work of Your Life

        Barbara Bonner is the author of Inspiring Generosity (2014) and Inspiring Courage (2017). She has spoken widely on the subjects of generosity and leadership and is a frequent contributor to The Huffington Post. After starting her professional life as an art historian, she has devoted her career to nonprofit management, fundraising, and philanthropy. A 30-year resident of New York City, Barbara now lives in a converted barn in the Berkshire hills of Western Massachusetts.

        The OLLI Special Events Committee presents 

        an Online Lecture on

        GROUND/WORK

        the Clark Art Institute's First Outdoor Art Exhibition

        Wednesday, December 9th, 2pm EST

        The talk will be held online via Zoom (link to be sent to registrants)
        $5 for OLLI at BCC members; $7 for non-members

        Click here to register

        Join Laura Dankner, Clark docent and OLLI member, for an online talk on the Clark Art Institute’s first outdoor exhibition, Ground/Work.

        A reverence for nature and a desire to further enliven the surrounding trails, pastures, and woods inspired Ground/Work. Building on a history of collaboration with contemporary artists, the Clark commissioned Kelly Akashi, Nairy Baghramian, Jennie C. Jones, Eva LeWitt, Analia Saban, and Haegue Yang to create new works of art in active dialogue with this specific environment.

        The artists conceived their works to sites of their choosing, knowing visitors would have access day and night for more than a year.  In various locations across the Clark’s 140-acre campus, the installations are embedded in an everchanging landscape—both daily and seasonally. Ground/Work highlights the balance between fragility and resilience that both nature and the passage of time reveal, while offering fresh experiences with every visit.

        Developed over several years, this exhibition comes at a moment of dislocation, isolation, and uncertainty. Familiar experiences of being outdoors and encountering works of art takes on new meaning in our unexpectedly changed world, offering the comforts of nature and culture, community and solitude, engagement and reflection.

        Ground/Work is free and open to the public now and through October 17, 2021 on the beautiful grounds of the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts. To see the entire exhibit plan to spend about 2 hours walking on moderate trails. Please dress for the weather and wear walking shoes. No reservations are needed.

          Meet the Lawyer for Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr.
          A Conversation with Pioneering Civil Rights Hero Fred Gray

          With OLLI instructor and speaker Doug Mishkin

          Tuesday, January 12, 6pm EST
          FREE and open to all
          Online via Zoom

          Congressman John Lewis called Fred Gray one of "the Founding Fathers of modern America." 

          In 1958 Dr. King called him "the brilliant young Negro who later came chief counsel for the protest movement." 

          Fred Gray opened his law practice in Montgomery, Alabama in 1954 with the mission of "destroying everything segregated I could find."  One year later, this rookie lawyer represented his friend Rosa Parks and Dr. King in the Montgomery Bus protests.  That led to a career of landmark cases defeating segregation throughout Alabama, including the Supreme Court case of Gomillion v. Lightfoot, in which the Court rejected the racial gerrymandering of Tuskegee. 

          In his autobiography, Bus Ride to Justice, Gray also describes his representation of Claudette Colvin, the 15-year-old who was arrested on a Montgomery bus nine months before Rosa Parks; his securing an acquittal of Dr. King by an all-white jury in Montgomery of criminal charges of tax evasion; his role in investigating the infamous "Tuskegee Syphilis Study" and securing compensation for the numerous victims; and many other historically significant matters.  In this conversation, you'll hear Mr. Gray talk about the judge whom in 1958 he complimented for being a fair judge who treated him courteously, and who went on to become the governor of Alabama--Governor George Wallace.  

          Mr. Gray will be interviewed by OLLI instructor and speaker Doug Mishkin, himself a lawyer.  OLLI is pleased to offer this 90-minute free program on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 6:00pm Eastern/5:00pm Central time.  We can think of no better way to honor the memory of Dr. King in anticipation of the January 18 Martin Luther King Day than to celebrate the achievements of his lawyer, Fred Gray.
