BookTalk: New Lecture Series Featuring TC Press Authors

Alumni Relations, in conjunction with the TC Press and the Center for Educational Outreach and Innovation, is starting a new lecture series for alumni and other members of the TC community.

Suzanne Hall, Director of Alumni Relations, said: "We wanted to provide an opportunity for some of the best scholars published by TC Press and to create a community for alumni based on a stimulating exchange of ideas."

The inaugural lecture will be October 21 and will feature Maxine Greene, the William F. Russell Professor Emeritus in the Foundations of Education. Her talk begins at 5 p.m. in the Goodman Room, which is on the third floor of the Milbank Library. It will be followed by a reception at the President's home.

Other presenters lined up for the series include William Ayers, author of The Good Preschool Teacher and To Become a Teacher; Seymour B. Sarason, author of School Change and How Schools Might Be Governed and Why; and Frank Smith, author of Reading Without Nonsense and to think. All of the authors either have just published a new book or will have a book being released shortly after their presentation in the series.

Professor Greene, whose works include The Dialectic of Freedom and Landscapes of Learning, will engage in a dialogue on culture and art in New York City with the education directors of three prominent cultural organizations. Joyce Robinson-Hill, Director of Education of the Joyce Theater; Polly Kahn, Director of Education for the New York City Philharmonic; and Madeline Cohen, Education Director of Symphony Space will be joining Professor Greene.

A notice will be mailed with the time and location of each lecture. You may also call Alumni Relations for more information at (212) 678-3679.
