Joyce Carol Oates at Harvard Book Store

Harvard Book Store welcomes award-winning and renowned author JOYCE CAROL OATES for a discussion of her memoir The Lost Landscape: A Writer's Coming of Age.

The Lost Landscape is Joyce Carol Oates’ vivid chronicle of her hardscrabble childhood in rural western New York State. From memories of her relatives, to those of a charming bond with a special red hen on her family farm; from her first friendships to her earliest experiences with death, The Lost Landscape is a powerful evocation of the romance of childhood, and its indelible influence on the woman and the writer she would become.

In this exceptionally candid, moving, and richly reflective account, Oates explores the world through the eyes of her younger self, an imaginative girl eager to tell stories about the world and the people she meets. While reading Alice in Wonderland changed a young Joyce forever and inspired her to view life as a series of endless adventures, growing up on a farm taught her harsh lessons about sacrifice, hard work, and loss. With searing detail and an acutely perceptive eye, Oates renders her memories and emotions with exquisite precision, transporting us to a forgotten place and time—the lost landscape of her youth, reminding us of the forgotten landscapes of our own earliest lives.

“Stunning…[a] varied, kaleidoscopic, and…insightful map to the formation of a writer who understands how deeply mysterious the ‘familiar’ really is.” —Publishers Weekly

Josh Shpak Band with Jason Palmer and Billy Buss

For his senior recital, Josh Shpak and his band, with featured special guest trumpeters Jason Palmer and Billy Buss, will showcase Shpak's original music. Some of it will be from his debut EP, Astatic, which brings together a wide range of influences including jazz, rock, electronica, soul, and film music, among others. Other special guests will include vocalists Robbie Wulfsohn and Debó Ray, and Ethan Heyenga on alto sax and FX.

Shpak has collected a group of some of the brightest young talents in music today, creating an ensemble steeped in the history of jazz, that—following in the footsteps of pioneers like Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, and Pat Metheny—creates a sonic palette more accessible to young listeners. “I have often found that the main reason people of my generation steer away from jazz is not that the music is too complex, too angular, too tense…it’s because the very sounds that the musicians are using sound old or outdated to them,” says Shpak. “I’d like to bring my music to these people in a way that makes their own favorite artists (whether they be Radiohead, Kendrick Lamar, or the Beatles) be as relevant a part of our culture’s musical history as John Coltrane”.

Dreamcatcher at The Brattle Theatre

Director Robert Gordon will attend in person for Q&A.

Details: 2015, UK, 98 min
Director: Kim Longinotto

Directing Award for World Cinema Documentary at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival

DREAMCATCHER is on tour this Fall with generous support from The Fledgling Fund in collaboration with Women Make Movies and The British Council.

We invite audiences to join Brenda Myers-Powell from the Dreamcatcher Foundation and the film and producer Lisa Stevens for a post-screening Q&A and discussion with local advocacy leaders working to combat sex trafficking.

For more information on the film and the tour visit: &

For more information on The Dreamcatcher Foundation visit:

Synopsis: Dreamcatcher takes us into a hidden world through the eyes of one of its survivors; Brenda Myers-Powell. A former teenage prostitute who worked the streets of Chicago, Brenda defied the odds to become a powerful advocate for change in her community. With warmth and humour, Brenda gives hope to those who have none. Her story is their inspiration.

For twenty-five years Brenda Myers-Powell called herself ‘Breezy’ and she dominated her world, or that’s what she thought. It was a world that had turned her into a teenage, drug-addicted prostitute. After a violent encounter with a ‘john,’ Brenda woke up in the hospital and decided to change her life. Today she is a beacon of hope and a pillar of strength for hundreds of women and girls as young as fourteen who want to change their own lives. ‘Dreamcatcher’ explores the cycle of neglect, violence and exploitation which each year leaves thousands upon thousands of girls and women feeling that prostitution is their only option to survive. By following the very charming, charismatic and truly empathic Brenda, we enter the lives of young women and see in verite footage their realities from their points of view. While the world may overlook these women and men, thankfully Brenda has not, providing an unflinching expose which contrasts seeming hopelessness against the difference that one person can make in the lives of many.

Seen on Bravo, VH1, TLC - Speed Dating in Boston! | Singles Event
Sophisticated Simplicity Our events offer a fresh alternative to speed dating and matchmaking. We don't find anything romantic about whistles, name-tags or over-the-top party trimmings typically found at singles events so we have done away with them. Creating an atmosphere that is at once casual and comfortable. It's what we call cheeky-chic! For those that prefer the same simplified experience in matchmaking we offer our 'Date Nights' free of contracts or commitments. It's as simple as selecting your package, telling us your preferences and allowing us to arrange the evening. Consider us your blind date specialists! Sought after for our popularity, the personal service we offer and an unparalleled selection of daters you want to meet.   Speed Dating @ Sip Wine Bar | November 3rd 2015 Ages: 25-39 | 8PM 581 Washington St, Boston, MA 02111 SpeedBoston Dating & Matchmaking
