Book Talk

JANUARY BOOK TALK —

noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, January 9. Free; lunch available ($5).

Our speaker will be Colette Bancroft, book editor at the Tampa Bay Times, speaking on Jennifer Egan's Manhattan Beach.

Bancroft calls the book "rich in complex characters, insight into American culture and class, startlingly beautiful prose, and irresistible storytelling."

Set during World War II at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, it tells "the enthralling story" of Anna Kerrigan, a shipyard worker; her father's mysterious disappearance; and a mobster who keeps reappearing in her life.

Reader's Theater performance!

Reader's Theater performance!

contact: Jack Clark

Meet in Harvard Hall at the Cathedral. A beginning look at the theatrical experience. Perhaps there is an actor in you just begging to step onstage. This class will offer a beginning look at the theatrical experience of developing a performance ensemble- how to speak, how to breathe, how to move, and ways to improve presentation skills in interpreting the potency within plays. The work of theater is to present life's experiences and emotions that great dramatic works evoke. Perhaps there is a performance in our future! Plays may include works by Sara Ruhl, August Wilson, T.S. Eliot, George Bernard Shaw, or others. 

Reader's Theatre Actors Will Perform December 13 Participants in our Reader's Theatre — a new activity this fall — have been busy since September learning the basics of performance, and they are ready to raise the curtain on a year-end "strut their stuff" performance. At 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, December 13, in Harvard Hall, join them for an hour-long program of selected works "from the hilarious to the sublime," including Suzan-Lori Parks' 365 Plays/365 Days, John Murrell's Waiting for the Parade, and Sarah Ruhl's Passion Play. The Reader's Theatre is directed by Jack Clark and Richard Sias, retired professional actors, dancers, directors, and choreographers. If you attended the second of our two Sunday-morning classes on the Protestant Reformation, you saw Jack in the role of King Henry VIII and Frank Casorio, a participant in the theatre group, as Martin Luther.

Homeless Campbell Park Students Will Join Giving Tree Recipients This Year

One of our beloved Cathedral traditions returns the weekend of November 11 and 12: our Cathedral Giving Tree, a way for all of us to make a merry Christmas for at-risk children. This year we are excited to more than double the number of children being served with the addition of homeless students and their families at our adopted school, Campbell Park Elementary.

Sponsored since 2009 by the Friends of St. Aelred, the Giving Tree works this way:

* A Christmas tree will be set up in the Narthex, decked with Christmas cards. Each one lists the Christmas wishes of a recipient.

* You choose an ornament — or more than one! — and shop for the requested gift.

* Return the gift no later than Sunday, December 3, UNWRAPPED. Please include a box or gift bag . . . and if you can add some wrapping paper, that would be greatly appreciated.

Besides the children at Campbell Park, this year's recipients are:

* Children and families who live at Resurrection House, a faith-based ministry that provides housing, education, job training and life skills to these families, most of which are headed by single mothers.

* AIDS Service Association of Pinellas (ASAP)/ Brighter Seasons for Children, which supports children infected or affected by AIDS/HIV. Currently this organization serves more than 60 families with 125 children.

"Every year, every single card is taken off the tree, and people ask us for more," said Ron Gallucci, one of the organizers. “This is an incredibly generous congregation. So many people buy more than the requested gift. They really want to reach out to these children and families and share their good fortune with others.'' Last year the congregation contributed 232 gifts for 58 individuals.
