Piermont Reads: Talk by Dr. Cara Stepanian

Thomas Berger’s 1980 novel Neighbors is a dark social commentary on suburban life, in which reality clashes with perception.

This talk will examine Berger’s life and his time in Piermont, while placing Neighbors in context of both time and place – evaluating its relevance today and its place in a modern canon of social reflection.

Creating from Devastation: World War II and Its Impact on Art
presented by Ashleigh Malone
From 1939 to 1945, World War II had interrupted the careful balance established after the first world war and left a trail of destruction in its wake.  Violent, controversial and brutal, the effects of the battle were felt by everyone, even those who were not directly involved. Among them were artists who used their talent to draw inspiration and create works from this global devastation like Edward Hopper. Hopper’s works are seen as lonely, withdrawn, and isolated which signifies the lack of human touch and empathy during this turbulent time. With the eruption of two world wars in just thirty years, were Edward Hopper’s works truly illustrating the sociopolitical reality of the early twentieth century?
