Through recordings and video clips, Mr. Yudkin shall demonstrate the vast range of Dylan’s talent, both musical and literary, and debunk the widespread notion that he cannot sing. Finally he shall discuss the question of his Nobel Prize for Literature. Was that a crazy move by the Nobel Committee or an inspired choice?

Lakeville, CT–Dr. Doug Tallamy Spring Lecture-sponsored by the Salisbury Association Land Trust & Cornwall Conservation Trust @ Hotchkiss School Auditorium
May 12 @ 7:30 pm

Doug Tallamy’s first book, “Bringing Nature Home”, describes the role of native plants at the base of the food web, which supports a spectrum of insects and in turn the complexity of bird life, and the many wildlife interactions above and beyond. This is contrasted with diminished interactive diversity where invasive plants have displaced natives.

Inspired by the Tallamy talk, the Salisbury Association Land Trust is developing an exhibition entitled “Going Native” which will be on display at the Salisbury Association, opening May 6, 4:30-6 PM and be on view through the summer.

In addition, two invasive field workshops will occur on Saturday May 20, one at the HVRHS Invasive Management Area, North Campus, in Falls Village, from 9:30-11:30 AM, the other, during the afternoon at Sharon Land Trust’s Mary Moore Preserve, 24 Williams Road, Sharon, 1-3 PM. Invasive plant managers will be present at both sites, describing the processes at work in nature and various methods for the safe and effective control of invasives in large landscapes and in backyards.

Dr. Tallamy is Professor of Entomology and Wildlife Ecology at the University of Delaware, is the award-winning author of Bringing Nature Home and The Living Landscape, and is a prolific writer and engaging speaker. His books will be available after the lecture.

Lenox, MA–Close Encounters with Music Presents a Lecture by Linda Hirshman & the Feminine Mystique @ The Mount
May 14 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Lawyer, best-selling author, and cultural historian Linda Hirshman has chronicled battles that have changed the social landscape of America in her books Get to Work: A Manifesto For Women of the World, Hard Bargains: The Politics of Sex, and others. Her dual biography of Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Sisters in Law, reveals how these trailblazers shaped the legal framework of modern feminism.

Hirshman has written for a variety of periodicals, including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Slate, and The Daily Beast, and participated herself in cases in the United States Supreme Court representing organized labor. She has also spent time in academia, teaching law, and philosophy and women’s studies at Brandeis University. A charismatic speaker, Hirshman will analyze the 14th and 19th Amendments in tandem as two paths to equality in the suffrage effort and as they affected private and public lives of women.
