Miriam Weinstein, All Set for Black, Thanks: A New Look at Mourning
Tues, April 25, 7:30 pm @ The Willows at Worcester, Great Room, 101 Barry Rd, Worcester (follow signs to Health Center)
All Set for Black, Thanks is a collection of intensely personal essays about death that takes mourning out of the closet as we follow the author through a year of funerals, shivas, casseroles, and eulogies. Through her wry, resilient, wise lens, and a dose of black humor, she addresses love, loss, and the meaning of life.

James Kirchick, The End of Europe: Dictators, Demagogues and the Coming Dark Ages
Sun, May 7, 3 pm @ Worcester JCC
Once the world’s bastion of liberal, democratic values, Europe is now having to confront demons it thought it had laid to rest. The old pathologies of anti-Semitism, populist nationalism, and territorial aggression are threatening to tear the European postwar consensus apart. Based on extensive firsthand reporting, this book is a provocative, disturbing look at a continent in unexpected crisis. James Kirchick is a journalist and foreign correspondent and a fellow with the Foreign Policy Initiative in Washington, D.C. He is the grandson of Gladys Rudnick.
