Marian Schwartz in Conversation with Jonathan Brent

In a Soviet elementary school, a bombastic teacher lectures his young students on traffic accidents and family separation, unwittingly stirring an emotional crisis. A lost wallet, an office fling, an upset stomach—the minutiae of life unveil the private tragedies at the heart of a school community. A world away, an old herdsman entrances a young tank commander with the legend of Baron Ungern, the real-life White Russian officer who conquered Mongolia. A foggy epic unfolds, a tale of faith and revenge centering on a mysterious amulet, said to make the wearer invincible. From the dim of the classroom to the vast Mongolian steppe, Leonid Yuzefovich’s masterful novellas The Storm and Horsemen of the Sands drill straight to the core of human emotion. These Russian parables illuminate the fears, passions, and ambitions beneath the grandest acts and the tiniest gestures. Event Location: 192 Books - New York #192 10th Ave. City: New York. State: NY.

The Formula: Quantifying Careers from Science to Art

Submitted Book Signing Events We cordially invite you to a presentation by Albert-László Barabási titled The Formula: Quantifying Outcomes in Individual Careers, from Science to Art, hosted by Dr. György Buzsáki, Professor of Neuroscience at the New York University School of Medicine. Common wisdom goes something like this: Performance drives success, hence work hard and success will follow. But as we’ve all witnessed, that’s not always the case. Here I aim to quantify success in science and arts by realizing that while your performance is about you, your success is about “us”—meaning that success is a collective and measurable quantity that captures how your peers observe and recognize your performance. This approach allows us to explore, using the tools of science, the emergence of impact, and quantify our ability to measure and predict success. I will discuss when will a scientist make her highest impact discovery, how to assign credit to collaborative work, and the role of professional and institutional networks in the emergence of… Book(s) Being Signed: The Formula: The Universal Laws of Success.

Poetry Reading: Nina Murray - Minimize Considered

Submitted Book Signing Events These poems by Nina Murray draw on her experience as an officer of the U.S. Department of State and to a large degree are set in cities where she has worked or studied. Whether it be Toronto, Washington, D.C. or Lincoln, Nebraska, the poems are acutely aware of place; some portray the impersonality of the modern urban landscape. But the poet's eye often picks out, primarily from nature, sharply observed exceptions to the rule. Nina Murray is a native of the Western Ukrainian city of Lviv. She is a poet and literary translator from the Ukrainian and Russian languages. As a U.S. diplomat, she has served in Lithuania, Canada, and Russia. Book(s) Being Signed: Minimize Considered.

Book Signing: Stephen K. Baskerville - Not Peace But a Sword

Submitted Book Signing Events Not Peace But a Sword examines the rise of Puritan radicalism during the English Revolution of the 1640s. Based largely on readings of the sermons preached during the Long Parliament, Stephen Baskerville analyzes the link between Calvinist ideology and the revolutionary zeal which culminated in the Civil War. Godly speech defined a godly life which challenged traditional assumptions, appealing to the needs of a people caught up in the problems of rapid social and economic change. Not Peace But a Sword explores the social psychology behind the rise of Puritanism through textual criticism of the sermons, placing them in the mental context of their time, and offers a new understanding of the link between the language of religion and act of revolution.

‘The Speed of Dark,’ an Evening of Literature & Music at The Strand

Submitted Book Signing Events The Speed of Dark (Adelaide Books) reveals how the author – his mother the baroness Jacqueline de Rothschild, and his father the world-renowned cellist Gregor Piatigorsky – broke the chain of his lineage of art, music and banking to establish an important career in science. As he strayed from the well-trodden scientific path to examine the eyes of jellyfish and other little-studied species, Joram learned that science, like music, has many poetic aspects. In this contemplative memoir, we learn that science and art are two sides to one coin. Keeping our mind open to such paradoxes and possibilities, we are invited to ponder seemingly absurd questions that may someday have answers, such as: “what about the speed of dark?” Join us in the Rare Book Room at The Strand Bookstore as Joram reads from his memoir, and his nephew, cellist Evan Drachman, head of The Piatigorsky Foundation in Manhattan, will perform.
