Announcements

Martin FlahertyOur newest class addition addresses a subject ripped straight from the headlines. The Powers and Limitations of Executive Orders, scheduled for Wednesday, March 1, 2017, from 7 to 8 p.m. at Scarsdale High School, will answer many a question about President Trump’s highly publicized executive orders concerning the construction of a wall along the Mexican border and the restrictions placed on immigration. Timely and topical, this lecture will leave time for questions and discussion.

Leading this exciting new offering is Professor Martin S. Flaherty, currently the Leitner Family Professor of International Human Rights and founding Co-Director of the Leitner Center for International Law and Justice at Fordham Law School as well as a Visiting Professor at Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. To read more about Professor Flaherty’s impressive credentials and background, please follow this link to his recently posted instructor biography.

Flaherty will shed light on the recent presidential proclamations and place them in historical context. Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation, Roosevelt's order regarding Japanese internment, Truman's desegregation of the armed services, and Obama's DACA order deferring deportation action for undocumented childhood arrivals illustrate the varied application of executive powers throughout U.S. history. Professor Flaherty will likewise cover how the checks and balances of the legislative and judicial branches have constrained the exercise of this executive authority.

Besides this addition, please note the following updates to our catalog that post-date the printed mailing:

The start time for all six classes of Enjoying Poetry: Poems of Praise and Attention (Course 5012), beginning on Tuesday, March 21, 2017, is 1:30 pm. The correction has already been made to the online catalog.

Harriet SobolYet another section of BookTalk with Harriet Sobol has been added to satisfy demand. The latest addition is Course 5223 and will meet for five Tuesdays from 1 to 2:30 pm, beginning on April 4, 2017. As with the other two sections that appear in the printed catalog, this semester’s readings will include Moonglow by Michael Chabon, Burial Rites by Hannah Kent, Nutshell by Ian McEwan, Commonwealth by Ann Patchett, and The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead.

One Day Only Book Discussion: Ordinary People by Judith Guest (Course 5225) has been added to the online catalog. Class meets from 10 am to 12 pm on Monday, May 22, 2017, at Westchester Reform Temple. The class will examine Judith Guest's first novel, a tale of what appears to be an ordinary upper middle class American family until an accident causes the dream family to fall apart. The book was the basis for the 1981 Oscar-winning best picture that also garnered Oscars for best director (Robert Redford in his directorial debut), best supporting actor (Timothy Hutton in his film debut, winning over co-star nominee Judd Hirsch) and best adapted screenplay (Alvin Sargent). Mary Tyler Moore received a best actress nomination for her portrayal of the mother in this family.
