NSL: Never Stop Learning Summer Book Club Series presents MARY LOUISE PARKER, author of Dear Mr. You
Join author and actress Mary-Louise Parker for an intimate discussion about her new novel, Dear Mr. You. For full engagement, we recommend reading the book before!
Wine and refreshments will be included.
An extraordinary literary work, Dear Mr. You renders the singular arc of a woman’s life through letters Mary-Louise Parker composes to the men, real and hypothetical, who have informed the person she is today. Beginning with the grandfather she never knew, the letters range from a missive to the beloved priest from her childhood to remembrances of former lovers to an homage to a firefighter she encountered to a heartfelt communication with the uncle of the infant daughter she adopted. Readers will be amazed by the depth and style of these letters, which reveal the complexity and power to be found in relationships both loving and fraught.
This series has been made possible, in part, thanks to the generosity of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
Never Stop Learning wants to skip the small talk and bring back meaningful conversation.
With the explosion of technology, we continue to spend more time online. Whether as a news source, for social interaction, or as a habit, most people are attached to their devices. This trend has led to more time communicating online and less time interacting with real live people…let alone friends and colleagues! It should be easy to convene with friends and colleagues to talk about interesting topics that resonate. Never Stop Learning lays the groundwork for you to learn in a fun and convenient way.
Curated by Paton Miller, the now fifth year of this popular exhibition continues to celebrate 31 new artists including six teenagers and marks Southampton Arts Center as a home where the East End arts scene can continue to thrive. This exhibition has been made possible thanks, in part, to the generosity of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. Public funding provided by Suffolk County.
Meet the artists of East End Collected5 and EEC Jr. as well as Curator Paton Miller at our popular Thursday night social club, “Hangout.” Come view the new exhibition, socialize with the artists and members of the community, have a glass of wine, listen to music, play ping-pong and just hang out!
