JOHN SINGER SARGENT AND CHICAGO'S GILDED AGE

Anticipating the Sargent exhibition that will run at the Art Institute of Chicago from July 1 to September 30, art historian Jeff Mishur returns to discuss the highlights of John Singer Sargent’s career as a portraitist, muralist, and plein air painter. Sargent’s society portraits, including “Madame X,” gave him the financial freedom to paint diverse subjects and to travel in Italy, England, France, and Spain.

Big Books: Chekhov Short Stories

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Hammond Room

Anton Chekhov’s short stories depict everyday life with all its simplicity and complexity. “There are no easy answers to be found in Chekhov's writing,” said Michael Enright, in a CBC special, “Chekhov for the 21st Century.” “He shows us people as they are, not as we would like them to be. And the world as it is, not as it should be.” 

Our three-week summer session will allow us to dive into some of Chekhov’s best stories. Leading the discussion will be Barbara Joyce, who has been teaching English at New Trier High School for 15 years. She holds master’s degrees in religious studies and in writing, making her acutely impressed with Chekhov’s ability to infuse the mundane with meaning.

The Big Books discussion series is sponsored by the Friends of the Glencoe Public Library. Registration is required and space is limited. Glencoe residents will get priority if the class fills up. Registration opens June 1; visit the library’s website or call to register. The class will meet July 11, 18 and 25, 7:00-8:30 pm. Please sign up only if you can attend all three sessions.

CALIFORNIA TYPEWRITER

California Typewriter is a documentary portrait of artists, writers, and collectors who remain steadfastly loyal to the typewriter as a tool and muse. Luminaries like Tom Hanks, David McCullough, Sam Shepard and others weigh in, even while California Typewriter movingly documents the struggles of the Berkeley, California, shop that lends the film its name, one of the last such repair shops in America. In the process, the film delivers a thought-provoking meditation on the changing dynamic between humans and machines, and encourages us to consider our own relationship with technology. "Anyone who loves machines, poetry or, better yet, the poetry of machines should see it." -- Stephanie Zacharek, Time.

LAST MEN IN ALEPPO

Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature and universally acclaimed, Last Men Aleppo show us examples of inspiration, heroism, and stubborn humanity in the midst of one of the most troubled places on earth. The filmmakers, with considerable courage in their own right, follow the internationally-recognized White Helmets, ordinary citizens who rush toward explosions in the hope of saving lives. Most impressively, Last Men in Aleppo traces the lives of three of the group’s founders as they grapple with the chaos about them. Last Men in Aleppo is, simply, "a masterpiece." -- Nick Frasier, The Guardian.
