Presented in partnership with The Norwich Bookstore.

Join author Annelise Orleck, whose book inspired the film, at JAM for a screening of the newly premiered PBS documentary, followed by a Q&A with Orleck. Her book Storming Caesars Palace tells the story of the revolutionary Black women welfare organizers of Las Vegas who spearheaded an evergreen, radical revisioning of American economic justice in the 1970s, trailblazing a movement that proved that poor mothers are the real experts on poverty, providing job training, libraries, medical access, daycare centers and housing to the poor.

Video poem ~ "The Honeycomb," by Casey Carney

The Honeycomb, by Casey Carney

"In this video poem is the tourist experiences New York as a metaphor for the longing for family, with the surreal and the tender coinciding as naturally as flesh and bone in a concrete honeycomb." Media artist and poet Casey Carney was a member of JAM's Personal Documentary Filmmaking course with Osher at Dartmouth Institute of Lifelong Learning, winter 2023.

Food, glorious food!

Food becomes the main discussion in new Episode 36 when Signe asks "Who's the next Barefoot Contessa?" The booksellers agreed on the following - Ina Gratner still reigns and there is nothing wrong with sticking with her cookbooks. And, if you are looking for someone else they all landed on Alison Roman.
